Lan party

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd let you all know how the lan party went. We were 14, played Quake 4 on a dedicated server. Played mostly death matches and capture the flag, there's no CA in q4.

We had a blast, got my ass kicked around (I will say in my defence that game play is very different from ql) and they want to do it again next semester.

That was kinda the plan...I was hoping I could woop ass, but Q4 feels so awkward. The railgun felt especially weird - there was like a delay between firing and actual shot that made it almost useless. Maybe, it was our setup. Some of them are no strangers to FPS as they play CS-GO. So it's not like they were total noobs either.

QL would be best, but Q3A could be a solid B plan.

We just had another end of term lan party today. We were more than last time. Imagine 20 young adults (all guys --> networking isn't popular with the female crowd)  in a classroom playing fps. It seems one of the students was ranked top 1000 in qlive - he was pretty good.

Quake4 was still the main event. This time I tinkered a little with the server and could get it to support 120hz. I also added the "q4max" add on which brings in some new maps and more importantly, some new modes to Q4. So we got to play some CA and CTF this time. Still no match for qlive but much better than q4 vanilla from last lan.

This may be the start of a tradition.

sounds like the start of some gay porn where people are gaming together and someone gets hot and removes a piece of clothing then someone else catches another gamer masturbating to quake then all the sudden everyone is naked sucking off
