Q1Q3Monsoon Tournament - Sunday 17th @ 8pm CEST
To allow lordlame to say he was reigning champion for two weeks instead of one, the format completely changes this Sunday and instead we test a potential new map for Thunderdome 9.

Q1Q3Monsoon was created by Mick as part of ProjectQ1Q3. Some playtesting has led to an alternative version that is a candidate for inclusion in Thunderdome 9's mappool. Thunderdome 9 starts in October, so this tournament is a chance to try it out and get feedback.

Edit: Tournament is over, congratulations to speedball & ric for winning divisions 1 & 2 respectively. Whether you had a chance to play on Sunday or not, please leave any feedback on the map in this forum post.

The tournament will follow the general format of recent Sunday cups - starting at 8pm CEST, there will be a group stage followed by a knockout stage to determine the winner, but all matches will be BO3 over this one map. If you haven't already, I strongly recommend downloading the external texture pack, available on mick's site here.

You can try it out by voting "/q1q3monsoon#td" (leaving off #td will give you the original, with megahealth in the centre area) on the following servers (list to be updated):
  • (now with very basic bot support)

As this is a trial for Thunderdome, please specify the Thunderdome division you wish to play in when signing up (1-6, 1 = Div0, 2 = Pro, 3 = Regular High, 4 = Regular Low, 5 = Advanced Rookies, 6 = Rookies). I will try and split players into divisions of 6-8 players, so everyone should be up against players of a similar level.

raket, can you upload this map on qw* servers?
2017-09-14, 22:59
I started to watch quake when tox was ruling the world, and moonsoon was the coolest map of q4 ! I'm in, but i don't think so much divisions is a good idea for an one-day cup, regarding the fact there is 4 days left to register to the tourney.

Im IN, always support new maps! : P~~

shouldn't it be q1q4monsoon? or was there a q3 version also.

lostworld is another map which would be great for QW.... but we would need the quakelive version converted (and not the q3 version)

I can try. Div 6.
2017-09-15, 22:21
Just to clarify - I didn't mean there would be 6 divisions, just that I would try and create 2 divisions/tournaments, if there was a big & obvious gap in the skill level (this was done for the bravado try-out tournament too).

If we don't have the numbers then it will be everyone lumped in together, but I'll try and make sure everyone has a chance of some good games against opponents around their level.

Meag, why only my losed games? :-P
Where are my games in LB (which I won) with rasta and kip? :-D
2017-09-19, 08:20
By popular demand - one of the LB final games is on that playlist now too.

I didn't put all the games up, thought watching that many games on one map is a bit much. Just picked some that looked close.
2017-09-21, 23:43
there is a new fodquake?
2017-10-04, 18:52
> one of the LB final games is on that playlist now too.
It isn't LB final. :-]
2017-10-05, 20:17
Um.... it was the last match in the loser's bracket, what do you usually call that?
2017-10-09, 10:39
I found it!
But I have very strange laggs during watch
Is it ok for you?
