The new year has come, so perhaps we could get something new this year in QW too.

The truth is, in order to keep QW alive, we might want to consider few changes here and there, perhaps something new (like clan arena KTX style) but definitely something that will keep QW going and interesting.

This poll is not only a "poll", it's something I want to see people suggesting different things, and maybe some of those become reality in the future. So if you have ANY idea what you would like to see in QW, now it is the time shed your thoughts about it. The best thing would be that this stuff you're suggesting, would make former QW players come back and it would also attract new players too.


Remember to go in detail when suggesting new things, and why. Here's some list that we thought over with few QW clowns a while back:

- New "old" game mode, clan arena: slightly tweaked clan arena to KTX that allows more customization.
- Slight tweaking to the tournaments, less divisions to make more matches per div.
- New tournaments: Phil's been running his oneday tournaments, there is QWDL and EQL but what if there was also something else...
- New/more maps?
- Some sort of ranking system.
- Match making.
- And something else I forgot...

I very much support this plan! Being an NQR admin it might sound like I'm just trying to smoke my own pole, but I think it worked quite well in NQR11. Nowadays the possibility of a clan going idle in mid-season is pretty big, and it really sucks if you only have 6 teams in a div of which 3 don't make an effort to play their games. So yes, bigger divisions please! Sure it will lead to more whine than usual, but people need to acknowledge that QW clans simply don't have the luxury anymore of having 10 more or less equally skilled clans to play against.

Other than that, I really wish we'd have a big duel tourney again. Phil is doing a great job with the oneday thingies and QWDL turned out really nice too, but those tournaments should be complementing regular (big) duel tournaments, not replacing them. Duelmania (and Ownage) was always great fun, full of excitement, drama, dozens of specs, goldrush gambling, oldschool players returning, and so on. Please, please, please someone organise a Duelmania-like mega-tourney!

Yes for clan arena! It's real fun and the servers are very few in numbers and high in ping.

And as for what I want from QW. I want high activity and the old superstars back. I'm highly sceptical though that there would be any simple method to bring them back or increase activity that doesn't involve money

I want "new" maps. Not new as in new, but new as in not played much. For example hate, edc, gibbie's, efdat's, geodm1, gmdm1, tridm1-3 etc. Maybe for lower divs in qwdl?

Clan arena would be fun too! I played so much quakelive recently

I want to have commentaries on games more than just mvds on chtv, instead VODS on youtube weekly on random games played on the servers(or official games ofcourse), i am willing to sacrifice time on this. I need at least one co-commentator thou.

QW already has lots of great maps for 4on4 like e3m2, e3m3, e3m7, e1m5 etc. Maps that we used to play when there was less talk and more play. What I "want" is the old guys come back but as poker is going so strong I don't see that happening. Or maybe they have just grown up (yeah, sure). To be realistic I don't think that anything can be done to get a lot of new players as for them QW is just a game among others and there are lots of shooter games today (plus there is no money involved). So quit nagging and just play and enjoy the game as long it lasts.

Ok but quakeworld is different and i think players who want a competitive,fast and hard game will found what they want only in quakeworld

The main problem for the new players is: when we come we only see good players so we have a long long way to learn

mescon, recently commented on the upcoming CHTV ff-jerry -locktar showmatch

"This makes me wanna take up QW again
Aaah, the good old days of aerowalk ownage and dm4 frustration, banging the mouse in the table, muttering to myself wondering if I have enough money in my savings account to afford punching the screen to the floor. I haven't played for years and years, but is LocKtar still a kickass dm2 player, or has he changed his favourite map? This would be nice to see. Is it still qizmo + mqwcl that people use?"

Sure we know that QW is different but they don't. And it is a problem for the newcomer that this is a hard game but what can you do. What i meant is that we should stop thinking what we want as we already have it and start thinking what we can give.

I would like to see some CTF servers, with no special shit. 3 or 4 new CTF maps (symetrical ones, not single player maps transformed into CTF maps), DM phsyics, no runes, no hooks. I would love to jump on a server with a ctf going on. And since it would be new maps rookies and mediocre players playing CTF a lot could become equal to good DM player who are playing CTF just from time to time.

I would like to run a duel tourney that would use some different rules/map pools if someone wants to do that.
Biggest problem right now is my lack of web skills, so if anyone got any of that please contact me

A "How to setup your own server" guide with every puny little detailed included and uploaded to a server with 99,99999% uptime. People come into the various Quake channels fairly often and ask how to setup a server under <insert Linux dist here> and even if i want to answer, i simply can't.

nServer (or whatever Empezar called it) would be totally OK too.

Shorter rounds (4on4). Being able to play a whole match within an hour would be nice.

yeah, guides could help a lot to the rookies but i still prefer the idea that once per a week a div1 give learning lessons through ventrillo while rookies watching the same demo

Yep. I think ppl automatically think high div1 vs low div2 and forget that there is going to be a lot of exciting low div1 high div2 games too and so on.

I wish we would have real money tournamets where significant prize money is given not only to the winner but maybe 2nd and 3rd too. I think this is the only way to bring ex-players or new players into the game. Unfortunately it's very unlikely to happen.

A completely free quake package (ie. no more pak1 downloads) in a single download making it even more accessible to people. It could also be directly included in Linux repositories and immediatley playable from any linux machine.

Something that I always wanted to see was some kind of Davis Cup for Quake.
If youre not familiar with it: Its a tennis cup with a cool format for nations. for more info(look it up on google)
I think this wouldnt work with nations in qw, but clans maybe.

The way this could be done in qw would be something like this.
DRz vs tVS (for example) BO3
1on1 Reppie vs Milton
2on2 Bps Locktar vs Blaze Ihminen
4on4 DRz vs tVS

Rules about order of game modes/choosing of maps etc needs to be discussed but most obvious would probably be
DRz choose 1v1 and aerowalk,
tVS choose 4on4 and dm3
decider is 2on2 (map is picked by removing)

---------------------------------------------

Another cool format I think would be team duel tournament:
DRz vs tVS (for example) BO3 (althou this mode is probably best in BO5 but dunno if qw is up for that)
DRz choose aerowalk and puts reppie up, tVS decides to use blAze
tVS choose dm4 and puts milton up, DRz choose Locktar
decider map is picked by removing

(no player can play 2maps)
A ESWC tournament in quake3 was actually done like this, and I loved it

---------------------------------------------

YET another variant of this one, would be using the SC/WC3 system
DRz vs tVS (for example) 4 players each
[tVS]Milton vs DruidZ.mawe > [tVS]Milton
[tVS]Milton vs DruidZ.locktar > [tVS]Milton
[tVS]Milton vs DruidZ.reppie > DruidZ.reppie
DruidZ.reppie vs [tVS]blAze > DruidZ.reppie
DruidZ.reppie vs [tVS]Ihminen > DruidZ.reppie
DruidZ.reppie vs [tVS]Diki > DruidZ.reppie

All 4 tVS players are out, DRz wins
