QuakeCon 2017 under way!
The QuakeCon 2017 event started yesterday with the first rounds in various tournaments. QuakeWorld is, at the time of writing, yet to see any action with the games kicking off tomorrow (Saturday). The QuakeWorld tournament will have some international presence in Locktar, Rio, Feffe and Dirtbox who will challenge the locals Rix and Thump4 among others. In this post we'll collect various links and other information that's good to know.

Due to low numbers it will likely be double elim or round robin. We will know more Saturday

Are there really only 6 participants?

I'm wondering the same. Let's hope it's only 'notable players'.
But the number of players in the Q2-1on1 was similarly low.
GL HF, contestants!

Dirtbox bragging around the webs about a dm6 victory against LocKtar during Dallas bootcamp, anything seem possible.
