Planetside 2 Gameplay / In game Samples VOD

Click for full resolution
I have started to experiment with video capturing in PlanetSide 2, this resulted in using the OverWolf interface while in game. Unfortunately the default video format is WMV and the quality isnt perfect in order to keep my in game frames per second up. That being said the final settings are watchable, this can be found in the 18min video at the bottom of featured videos below.

I wanted to show only a few features this time around, so there is a mix of some cinematic flights, some driving to battlefields, and me playing the infiltrator class mostly assisting a large friendly force with motion detection.

Twitch to youtube will be my next experiment

Cinematic flight through a part of the Hossin Continent (short, low quality test)
Here i wanted to display the manuverability of the "Reaver" aircraft and show off some of the surroundings and base structures.I suck at flying.

Infiltrator assisting a base attack (short)
This video puts your right in the battle, having just arrived at this location I try asses the battle and assist our army in pushing the enemy defensive position.

Infiltrator outdoors without a sniper rifle (short)
I was testing another setting and it turned into a good example of an outdoor fight as two forces move to the next destination.

Infiltrator fighting along side a huge "zerg" force (long 1.1GB, final watchable quality)
This video is almost 20min long when I fight with the "zerg" ("zerg" is used to describe when a large amount of one army is moving together) forces to take a medium sized complex. The battle rages on!

The rest:

Flight, cinematic from highest altitude
Higher quality run, too low fps to play

Starcraft 2 1.2 Patch Released (Changes)

Blizzard Releases 1.2 after some public beta testing

 A huge amount of changes were made this patch, and I have to say, Blizzard has impressed me with their insight into the game and the community once again. This patch was in beta for just about a month and even though the balance changes were few are far in between, the game changes and bug fixes made up up for the rest.

I've saved the changes as a seperate page because of the size needed to show it all. Enjoy

ID Tech Engine Sensitivity and Accel Calculations after DPI change (Quake, Warsow)

Recalculate your Sensitivity to match previous DPI's

Someone on IRC posted this text file, which includes formulas for the following environmental settings:
cl_mouseaccelstyle 0
cl_mouseaccelstyle 1
cg_zoomsensitivity 0
cg_zoomsensitivity 1

Fairly simple stuff, wish I had thought of doing this when I switched to my 2000dpi G3.

Shoutout to lsv for Dj'ing the big events and his great tracks!

 Even though this site is not currently running any tournaments, it doesnt not mean it will not again. The site is slowly transitioning to different gaming and internet related features. The site is rising continually on search engines, recently "mr lazy" results in the site showing up 8th our of a million on google.

At the moment I do not not have a clear direction for the site but im keeping a lot of opportunities open. The system I have developed for facilitating tournaments is powerful but has a lot of room for improvement...and of course if anyone needs to run exclusive and specialized tournaments I will resume work on this engine and keep pushing for better competition!

At the moment im just creating a source for images in comedy and gaming...

Phenominal Starcraft 2 Profile from Korea

I question the validity of this to enlarge

This 'player' had to of been playing full time and over time to get these stats so quickly after the release of the game.

The game was release on July 27, 2010. That is two and a half months ago. Lets say 75 days...

6288 (current) in 75 days = 84 wins a day......fucking lol....
84 wins * 25 min average game length = 2096 minutes a day = 34 hours
Thats only for WINS....impossible

Thats roughly 13000 games played in 75 days.....not to mention he has all the achievements...

2nd place in the world for acheivements....who the fek has first?

News from's Developer's Corner

Roach is one of the units that Blizzard plans on improving in efforts to open up the zerg game.

You cannot avoid hearing people complaining about the zerg imbalances, and although its hard to say because there are people for every race that can dominate the others. Fruitdealer in's TG Intel tournament won first place as a zerg and dominated the terran he was facing. But there are trends that tell us zerg may be harder to play then the other races, as blizzard stated in their developers blog recently.

Here are the pro-zerg changes they are tinkering or implementing with currently:

•    We're increasing roach range. This will allow roaches to be more effective in large groups, giving the zerg more options in the mid to end game.

•    Fungal Growth will now prevent Blink, which will give zerg a way to stop endlessly Blinking stalkers which can be very challenging to deal with in large numbers.

•    The Barracks are going to require a Supply Depot, which will impact a lot of early terran reaper pushes.

•    The reaper speed upgrade will require the Factory, which is meant to weaken a lot of the early terran reaper attacks that dominate so many matches, especially in team games.

•    We're making a number of increases to the health of zerg buildings, which will make the very vulnerable zerg technology structures more resistant to raids.  We don't expect these hit point changes to have a super significant impact on the game, but the current numbers felt way too low.

Here is the full post:

Here is something useful i found then researching DPS:

In general DreamHack will have tournaments in Counter-Strike 1.6, Quake Live, Counter-Strike Source, Trackmania, World of Warcraft and even a few console 1v1's like Tekken 6 and Street Fighter IV.

Notable others: Starcraft, Quake World, Modern Warfare 2, and Left 4 Dead amongst others. You can find the full list here:

There are some huge prizes up for grabs, like a prize purse of 200,000 SEK ($29,000 USD) for CS 1.6. The prizes for all the tournaments total over 600,000 SEK ($100,000 USD), I would expect a little more normally, but this event is relatively new and I see a lot of potential in it.

TCPM Tournanemts

The following Tournaments series are up for the taking. Proven and willing admins will be running these tournaments. I will be managing and maintaining the system on which all tournaments run. Tournaments will be setup as asked, and automatically processed. You simply have to promote the even with me, and admin the matches.
Input is appreciated, but know that there is a lot of work being done and need be done. Contact me if you have any questions, or if you feel able to run these or other tournaments of your desire. I will listen and consider other Tournament Series ideas or plans.

ID Software + QuakeCon 2009

ID Software and QuakeCon announce new location for 2009 event! I wonder if I should go....

July 15, 2009 - ID Software + ZeniMax + Bethesda

So when i read this article my jaw dropped and my heart stopped...

But after reading a few interviews and comments by Carmac, I was relieved to know its a privately owned company and ID Soft will do well under their financial budget. GO NEXT QUAKE 3 RISING!!!

File Archive Update + pukka3tourney6 Beta1

I wanted to get this a little more out there. I've got a bunch of files, hopefully more to come that I want people to know about.

pukka3t6 recently got released grab it here: - 16MB

Useful Files (Rest are under 'File Archive' in the menu to the left)
Quake 3 Maps: Customs + RA3 Maps + OSP Maps
Reforce: The best refresh rate locker I have encountered, fast and easy to use. Change your resolution in windows to another and back again to solidify the new settings.
QTracker 4.9: A decent and customizable server browser for all games.
All Seeing Eye: My folder copy, good tool for quick game launching. Includes my fav's with all the CPM servers that I have played on. Comes with Remote Server Control.
FlashFXP: Best FTP tool I have found. Good for accessing the FTP accounts that I can setup for you. Just ask me for one, you can find me in #tourneycpm @ QNet (Link at the left hand side)
Users FTP Folders: Last but not least, those that have already got an FTP access are in this section of the File Archive.

I just wanted to let everyone know that if you need a place to host files, such as gaming movies, maps, utilities...anything gaming / computer related, just let me know. Ill be glad to host it.
