|| The quake2 community (or of any other FPS, really) has always been frag-oriented. But there's more to q2 than just fragging. Imagine yourself, you are on an empty server waiting for others to come. What do you do? You jump around; you experience the uniqueness of the q2 movement.
That very uniqueness inspired some players to create the JumpMod. A mod in which fragging isn't the goal, completing the map is. It may sound easy, but it is not. In order to complete a map, you have to incorporate all the gameplay uniqueness- crate jumps, multiple jumps, water and ladder jumps, to name a few, or you will fail miserably.
You think you've got what it takes? Good, as _SK3L3T0R_ and APKIS are proud to announce the seventh installment of Jump Tournament, possibly the only JumpMod competition. Be sure to head over to the tournament's site () to learn more about the rules and the rare thing in modern q2 history - a cash prize! That's right. After fraggers getting some support from polish community, jumpers stepped up to put out the 300 for the winners of Jump #7. (Q2 is dead, anyone?!)
If you want to know more about the JumpMod in general, go to the mod's official site , connect to the server at 184.108.40.206:27950 or visit jumpers at #q2.jump. In the meantime, you might want to check .

While jumpers are happy about their playground, some of the DM players are concerned about the cheaters in the game. One of them is sofiene, the Tunisian newcomer to the online world of q2. He is worried about cheaters and the anticheat efficiency and has asked me to post up his little column on the topic for everybody to read.
While the column might be a little off here and there, and there might be some exaggerations, I'm sure he means no harm and is sincerely worried about the future of the anticheat module and the game itself.
