Finally got around too uploading these games. Most of the games were lost, all of Group C games were lost. Some of Group B games are there although i didn't bother uploading them because they weren't that exciting. I did upload all of the Group A games though.Lastly all of the finals were lost although there is still the Fraze vs Rep semi although the last map got lost.

As the situation unfolded on Sunday we were unable to spawn servers and unable to play out our last open qualifier. Because of this we have collaboratively decided to invite Parkinson, Dox and Instinctt whom all showed promising signs in the qualifier and have been outstanding duelers in Quake Live for a while. The 2nd Chance Qualifier will still go ahead as planned taking players from the 3 qualifiers played out and also strong players who signed up for the 4th. Intro will be running the competition and hopefully phy1um or Aeol can stream again! The final list for the 2nd chance qualifier is:

Storm
Kmate
Payatot
Kanji
Casper
Blaupunkt
Mica
Morph


Checkin Opens: 4:30pm SYD
Checkin Closes: 5:50PM SYD
Games Start: 6PM SYD


Participants
Brackets are already made
Stream (Games Start: 6PM)


Please don't forget the key rules for tonight

Quote:

Double Elimination
7 maps - Aero, Bloodrun, Furious, Cure, Lostworld, Sinister, Toxicity
BO3 Matches - Picks/Bans for all stages - pick, pick, ban, ban, ban, ban, remainder
Lower Bracket Finals will also be BO5 (no maps in hand)
The Grand Final is unnecessary as both finalists are going through

Reflex (reflexfps.net), an up and coming next-gen arena shooter built for twitch gamers by Australian developers, has started to kick off here in Australia, with 6 decent servers hosted in Sydney and a New Zealand based server available for play. We've seen the return of old players from other shooters, and new players alike and would love if you could join us and contribute to the testing and development of the game, whilst having a fun time along the way.

The current release is 0.30.4 but 0.31 is due out very soon too. The next patch is promised to deliver performance increases and DX10 support along with some other changes.The game is still pre-alpha, early access on Steam and available from the Humble store as a single Steam key (~$10US) or a 4-pack with a discount (~$30US). If you're interested in playing I thoroughly encourage you to band together and purchase a 4-pack so you can get in on this action.

We're currently developing a small community of players on IRC on irc.quakenet.org #reflex.au - something we'd like to expand to it's potential. You can connect via the mIRC client or any other IRC client you choose, or use the QuakeNet Web-Chat client.

This brings me to the competition news. #reflex.au will be hosting a duel cup on the with a round robin stage in groups of 4 and then the top two players from each group will go into a double elimination best of 3 bracket. As yet no prizes have been announced, but you can sign up on Challonge.com. You'll need to be in IRC and signed up on Challonge to play, check-ins are at 12:30PM AEST.

Prizes

- $150 for 1st place
- $70 for 2nd place
- $25 for 3rd place

Map Pool: thct1, bdm3, dp4, dp5, thcdm13 - these are all on our servers locally. So prac up on these to get your chances of winning together.

In the group stages, it will be high seed ban, low seed ban, high seed ban, low seed ban
In the Bo3 finals, it will be hs ban, ls ban, hs pick, ls pick with the remaining map as the decider

nb. anyone who can add to this prize pool would be loved forever, I'm a student and this is coming out of my own pocket, with a large donation by qhat. Cheers

Random Giveaways to Participants:

Hotline Miami steam gift
Portal steam gift

There are also 5x Reflex keys to give away to participants or people on the stream we are trying to organise! If we can't organise a stream/casting, these will be raffled off to random participants for you to invite a friend.

If you can help out with any minor monetary donations or major donations to make this prize pool even better, that would be great!!! Just message me in the forums!

At present, the game isn't too well optimized, even for more recent video cards, but on the Reflex forums you can find performance tweaks to increase your framerate and smooth out your gameplay. Remember though - performance tweaks are coming within the week (or so I hear).

Maps are being developed all the time with the built in multiplayer map editor and included on our Australian servers. We currently play in rotation cpm maps generally, but have also been playing maps like bdm3, thct1, thcdm13, dp4, and dp5. These were the maps used in the European cup that was held over the weekend.

We also have a Steam community - find us here.

Hope you can join us on IRC and in-game!

Cheers

Congratulations to both Bren and Traits who have now qualified for the main event. Intro has proposed to open up the 2nd chance qualifier to both 2nd and 3rd place qualifier finishes to receive spots, assuming they don't qualify in the 3rd of 4th. This means that now the top 3 from the 2nd Chance will move into the invited groups.

So far we have participating in the 2nd Chance Qual: Dox, Mica, Parkinson and Kanji. Statistics pages are now up on both qual1 and qual2 pages.

It's not to late to participate if you head over to here or if you'd like to catch some of the games checkout what reythe, phy1um and a host of players had to say about the matches on our twitch. Good luck to those still wanting to qualify

Hi all,

As you may have noticed the new website will be incorporating avatars a lot more into the feel of the pages. This design element is nearly a standard in a lot of social and community websites. As seen below


For those of you whom have signed up to a competition i've now created a way to upload your own personal avatar.

Just click here



For now it won't be a direct upload as I have not had time to look at resizing/positioning of images in great detail. So if you upload the picture and it doesn't show straight away don't be concerned, i'll get around to it within 24 hours. It would be great if we could see less of me on these pages :) Images don't have to be of self but please obey standard societal accepted content. Allowed file types are gif/png/jpg (although I dont believe we will be allowing animated gifs for avatars, atleast for now, unless you specifically resize it to 78x78). The restrictions on uploads are 2400x2400 pixels since I will be cropping them manually anyway!
