LGC

From QWiki

LGC (Lightning Gun Competition) was an exhibition tournament, focusing on the Lightning Gun.

It ran at lgc.quakeworld.nu as LGC3. Most of the information below is about its predecessor, LGC2. LGC3 no longer rotates maps every week, and instead accepted all demos for all supported maps. To see the most up-to-date information, you can visit the main site.

Details

LGC is played offline on various dmm4 maps (such as povdmm4) versus skill 10 frogbot with lg_pref enabled. This simulates playing versus a player with robotic aim and eliminates unfairness due to online lag. The points are awared based on the formula:

Score = LG% * Damage

The player must use a special version of the bot downloaded from the lgc site, which contains the specially configured bot. There are various other rules the player must follow, such as not picking up armors, and not using other weapons besides LG. Unfortunately, the current state of QW bot technology eventually makes it quite predictable, so the LG% are inflated by as much as 5%-10%, when comparing that player vs other humans.

This tournament allows one to compare his LG skill to other players. The top players also get bragging rights about their LG, and elite icons:

  • Winner: DEATH STAR
  • 2nd: Optimus Prime
  • 3rd: T-800 Model 101

And, if you pass the elite 11,000 mark, you will get the super elite icon of:

  • Chuck Norris

And, if you pass the H0LYSH1TT 12,000 mark, you will get the super elite icon of:

  • Bruce Lee
