Edge #22010-11-22 13:48 | SEBbull
With EDL and EQ2L seasons underway, after the recent NDML 9 launch, the Q2 community are still waiting for a few more things to come. One of the things we are waiting for, is the Edge Duel League (or Edge for short). The thing is, we don't have to wait anymore. Yes, that's right. After months of absence, Gerdt is finally back to bring you the brand new season of the Edge.

If you are ready for some action on arguably the best multiplayer map of all times, be sure to go to the league's website, read the rules to have a grasp on technical details and hit the sign up button, here.

One of the most entertaining and competitive league is coming up. What could be more fun, you may ask. Hm.. what if the Polish q2 community were to sponsor actual top 3 prizes?! -This is madness. -Madness? This is THE EDGE!

Be sure to check the news item regarding the prizes and don't forget to sign up right away, so you don't miss the opportunity to win some precious loot!

Edge #2:

Thanks newash and Gerdt for spamming me up to write about the league here! And a small reminder:
If you are running a league, writing a new mod or just have any other random information, you'd like to share with the community, feel free to contact the scene crew (checking their activity beforehand; hint: last login), preferably with already written post. 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!

NDML #9: second take2010-10-24 16:19 | SEBbull
The time has come! The day has arrived! Two and a half years after NDML #8 had finished, year and a half after the first attempt of organizing NDML #9, eight months after NDML: Invitational idea, Gravgon has finally come to proudly present the long-awaited ninth season of the Nations Deathmatch League!

That is right! Seeing a recent raise of motivation among q2 players, Gravgon has decided to give the NDML #9 one more shot to see if YOU, guys, are up for it! Don't let his efforts be in vain! There are a couple ways to show your appreciation and interest:
:: go to the league's website, leave a comment saying how excited you are,
:: get hold of an oldschool player and tell him/her what's up and to come back,
:: or most importantly, gather your countrymen, pick a team captain and go to #ndml to signup a team!

The league's layout doesn't change much. It will follow its typical course, with a group stage and a single-elimination bracket. The only noticable change is a slight tweak to the mappool. In addition to the standard q2dmx maps, the teams will also compete on the Schizm, aka q2next1, which has been successfully tested out in a last few EUROQ2L and has been proven a decent tdm map.

For more information, go to the league's website, visit the irc channel or contact anyone of the crew.

More duel leagues this season!2010-09-21 17:14 | SEBbull
As it's been reported, EDL and EUROQ2L are not the only leagues to come!

Rambutan, K1RU, LitRium, AlexyNov, the almighty Russian crew is proud to announce that the signups for the new, sixth, instalment of Russian Duel League are now open! The league is most likely to follow it's typical course with minor, or no changes in the ruleset. So, if you know russian and like playing duels, be sure to head to RDL website and signup for the challenge.

The European duellers are set. What about the North America players? Do you want a duel league? You've got it! That's right. After two years break, here comes haunted with the second edition of North American Duel League (NADL)! He knows you're up there, willing to play, so spare him uncertainty; go to the website, read the rules and hit the signup button right away! Even if you are one of the few who don't play duels, you might want to check the website, as the league's going to be fun to watch. Why? How about we... BAN THE TIMERS?! Psh! It gets better! How about... Jehar of Tastycast fame doing some tasty coverage of the event? Now, you do not want to miss that, do you?

RDL #6:
Signups deadline: 15th October, CLICK
Admins: Rambutan, K1RU, LitRium, AlexyNov

NADL #2:

Tastyspleen's thread: CLICK

That means the duel-leagues to tdm-leagues ratio for the season 2011 is for now... 3:1. We are really looking forward to seeing NDML even that out. As we all know, NDML is worth at least 2 points :).

Q2 season 2010/20112010-09-21 03:51 | SEBbull
We are well into September now. To all QII players, it only means one thing. A brand new Q2 season!

At the end of last season, the future of q2scene sure looked bleak at best and it could make you wonder if there will be a new season. Fortunately, there are still some guys around who care about q2 community and don't want to let it die. Seeing that no one suitable is willing to run the leagues, wision decided to step in once again, despite him saying he quit adminning. So be sure to send him a thank you via scene messenger or IRC query!

With everyone craving some competition, wision had no choice, but to open signups for both EDL and EUROQ2L as soon as he took over. So if you are willing to play, be sure to sign up quick, as the time is running out with deadlines being respectively 30th and 25th September! Make sure to visit league sites for more information and remember to check them frequently for any announcements, as the rules for both leagues are not final yet!

Also I'm sure you've already noticed, but I've got to mention for those few who didn't. There's a new article available at the top! It's a small prelude to the new season, written by Delita. Be sure to check that out (CLICK) and expect more from him to come!

A quick roundup:
EDL #9:
Signups deadline: 30th September, CLICK
Admins: wision (head), Litrium and Careem
IRC: #edl

EUROQ2L #14:
Signups deadline: 25th September, CLICK
Admins: wision (head), biah
IRC: #euroq2l

Let's hope 2x2, NiDML, Edge and finally NDML(!) will follow :)! GL and HF!

Forums unvavailable2010-09-19 03:48 | Gravgon
I made the forums temporarily unavailable to users because they were getting massively spammed and it may have caused all the websites to run so slow lately.

They will be back online when I figure out how to stop all that spam (any help with phpBB administration would be much appreciated since I'm a n00b with all that stuff ;))

Our friend Corr has asked me to post this news for him:

"King of the Server", in this case the 2007 variant, is a mod that takes regular deathmatch and mixes it up with some RPG elements.

As you join one of the servers you're prompted to begin a character based on your in-game name. As you start fragging away in a FFA DM setting your character will gain exp points, as well as credits and increase in levels. For each level you grow you gain points that allow you to upgrade weapons and playertrees such as: Strength, Dexterity, Wisdom,and Rage. These playertree upgrades will grant you certain abilities (Such as grapple hook, cloak, fly, mine-laying and regen to name a few). All the servers are connected to a global database that stores all characters, so whenever you leave your character will be stored and you'll be able to continue next time you play.
So what are you waiting for? Hop on the servers and check it out, follow your ranking on the site:

The character database gets reset tonight so everyone starts at level 0 again and the servers will be crowded!

Server addresses: (UK) (Denmark) (Central US) (Chile) (Canada)

Additional instructions can be found on the servers or below:

NoFake2010-07-09 09:19 | Gravgon
NoFake is a new tool that was developped by a group of Polish players to help fighting against nick faking on servers.

It currently runs only on TDM mod servers and it's already been implemented (and enforced) on a couple of them.

You can read more about NoFake in biah's news

wision considers adding NoFake to opentdm servers but before he does so, he would like to know your opinion about it.

Please post what you think about that in the comments !

PLQ2 #11 has ended2010-04-22 06:57 | *rl*
Just a few days ago, 11th season of the biggest Quake 2 League - PLQ2, has ended. I dunno if it's a suprise or not but div1 was dominated by players from tOk.

Divison 1 final standing:

1. team on-line killers
2. New Divide
3. Veni Vidi Vici

Unfortunately, we won't see 3M in the next season, cause they dropped down to the 2nd Division.

2nd division was quite even. And PFH managed to secure first place.

Divison 2 final standing:

1. Play For Honor
2. GOA
3. Rebels

Play For Honor and GOA advancing to the 1st div.

Congrats to tOk and Play For Honor!

R, 3agpoT? #5 - signups2010-04-06 04:19 | *rl*
Another (5th) season of this unknown to everyone (except russians) league has begun. This time, it will be "ztn2dm3-only-league". CoVell was able to win the previous season (ptrip + q2duel5). Will he be able to win this time?

Generally, this league is for russians, but if some non-russian speakers wants to join, they need to contact Litrium or AlexyeNov.

Allstar game and Euroq2l #132010-03-31 13:17 | Foen
Preliminary votes were cast to figure out the best and the most popular players who were nominated for the allstar game. Now it is up to you which 8 players will be playing in actual game, so cast your vote to a poll, which you can find from Euroq2l site .

Also Euroq2l #13 has reached playoffs and in a month or so, we will see which clans will conquer divisions I and II. Division I groupstage has certainly been more interesting this year than in past seasons. play> stayed on top, but point difference from 1st to 6th place is only 6 points so we can expect interesting games from quarterfinals to the finals. In divison II first playoffs round should be pretty clear, but when the playoffs go forward games will also get tougher and more even, however it is needless to say that there is only one favourite in division II.

Division I
play vs Brotherhood of Death
Harry Boy Quakers vs Veni Vidi Vici
Bigass Motherfuckers vs Muffzors
Team On-line Killers vs Rage

Division II
skill zero vs quake 2 rulez
we Dream vs qwned
xeno vs knights of beer
For Fun vs Titanium
rebels vs GOA
folk vs Frag in 7sec
Gsg9clan vs Only4fun
I am fucking amazing vs Strangers
