PLQ2 #132011-09-25 14:05 | SEBbull
A lot has happened in the past months in our small land of Quake 2 - newash coming up with the UNICTF and TESLA, Shao building up a brand new TDM map, norman and neon helping him out with a one-off tournament, Welkin coming back in the Quake 2 picture with the Dredge project, reviving gibblordag, taking over most of the admining duties for the upcoming season and finally writing up his Regeneration Manifesto. All the effort to put some life into the game, to revive the old fun we all used to share.

As it turned out, the Manifesto has really caught up- the European leagues have all agreed to be bound by it. And so, there have been news all over the place supporting the idea. However, the European admins were not the only ones thinking about reinventing the game's season- the Polish admin crew is proud to introduce the refreshed 13th installment of the Polish Quake 2 League PLQ2!

Although not following the Manifesto's vision word-by-word, the all-(admin)-star crew of Danka, Darus, Hamster, Pio, Urbasek and Stasiek sure do mean well for the game so it is reflected in their picture of the upcoming season of PLQ2:

:: NoFake enforced - the (in)famous Polish idea of keeping track of all the fakes; all the players willing to play the game have to have the NoFake account,
:: GTV - GTV readily available for the most important games, as it no longer collides with the NoFake component,
:: New mappool - the Poles have ffinally decided to incorporate q2next1 into the league; while at it, they picked up q2ht as well - expect some games on new grounds,
:: Smaller tournaments - to accompany the main event, the admin crew is going to host a number of smaller tournaments or games,
:: Prizes - that's right, the crew has organised a way to fund the league with some nice prizes, which are to be given out for the best clans, and possibly for the winners of the smaller event, or the players of the month,
:: and much, much more which is yet to be revealed in the upcoming days.

It it worth noting, as some of you might not know, since the last few seasons, PLQ2 is open for the foreigners - meaning anyone of you can join in and play in one of the most prestigious TDM Quake 2 league there is. However, what you must look out for is - you have to have NoFake account. Plus, there's a restriction on number of foreigners in a single clan (up to 2 foreigners in a clan; only 1 can play on a single map). If that doesn't scare you off, but you don't have a NoFake account, go to #NoFake (@ qnet) and/or ask Darus to fix you an account. Please do note that Darus is also willing to help you out in finding a clan to play in, either directly or by posting on a Polish Quake 2 forums. So if you're determined to play in the league, yet you can't find a proper clan - he's the man to go to.

It sure sounds nice, but when does it start? The signups have been opened for almost a week (12 clans signed up so far) and close on the 30th September. Then, the league will start off with an UNICTF opening game of clanleadears facing the admin crew, followed up by a bot-generated drawing of the maps for each round. Meaning, the league is most likely to start on October, the 1st. Don't miss it.

If you want to know more, please visit the league's IRC channel at #PLQ2 (@ qnet), visit their website here, or ask your Polish friends.

Friendly reminder:

Just so the site doesn't lag behind and is actually the news aggregator for the scene. Or maybe you want to write for the scene website yourself? If so, contact Kolt and convience him you are good enough!

the fact that they dont accept non-polish clans is still not cool emo

new layout looks awesome. nice to see something retro-ish and almost "painted" instead of that cyber-modern, overly graphical look.

Lousy style kicks back in. Haven't written in ages. Thankfully, Welkin has taken over covering some of the news. emo
