RTCW Competitive History: Trailer
  Posted on Sunday, November 25, 2007 at 12:40:16 AM | twister
  Hi guys.

I'm currently working on a movieproject about the history of RTCW.

Yesterday I released a trailer, you can download it on filefront:;9108413;/fileinfo.html - Highquality: 1280x720;9108559;/fileinfo.html - Lowquality: 800x600

Or in a stream on stage6:

However the main point of the release is to attract more people to send me their demos/shoutcasts.
I'm still missing lots of demos from early rtcw - 2002. Any support is welcome!

If you got some demos/shoutcasts or have an idea who i could ask, you can contact me on,
in #rtcwhistory on gamesurge(not in the night though) or
/q twister on quakenet.

New Article: Things that could make RTCW better.
  Posted on Sunday, November 11, 2007 at 01:56:50 AM | -doNka-
  I came up with a list of things that I thought would make a game that's been nearly perfect even better. You will agree with some, and others may be questionable. Give it a read and post a comment or two.

  Does this remind anyone else of an RtCW highlight video? There's... Music, and highlights, and names in the bottom left corner, and credits where they list their uber 1337 pens. I forsee lox rocking out to this.

Weekly OSP / TF2 Team Assembly
  Posted on Monday, October 15, 2007 at 06:50:20 PM | BYE|ralphtehnader
  Hope to see you all again on Wednesday around 8pm for some OSP gaming. The vent info is still the same.

After playing OSP for about an hour or so, let's play some TF2 for the remainder of the evening. I concur with the TF2 players on here that we should put together a team. I would be willing to host a server if there's enough interest to develop strats and pub on home turf on a 18 player server or so.

So far we have:

-w0rd (Papi Chulo)
-Paco's Gun

Anyone else interested?

If so:

join pw: vodka

Edit: As for the team name, some have suggested Team RtCW, which is cool. I was thinking of Team Wolfplayer or sticking with the classic BYE| = Bomb Your Enemies to go with the spam :D

10/10/07 Wednesday Night OSP Pug
  Posted on Wednesday, October 10, 2007 at 12:57:01 PM | BYE|ralphtehnader
  Hello All,

Nothing like some RtCW to bring up your spirits on a gloomy, rainy day.

Vent Server:
Password: bcdcrules

ECGN warm up around 8pm or so. I will most likely not be around tonight due to real life stuff, lol. Hopefully you guys will keep the spirit alive. And pickup a copy of TF2 when you can, it will be a ton of fun with all of us playing on a server.

Rock on,

TF2 4 Newbs Tonight?
  Posted on Tuesday, October 9, 2007 at 03:42:51 PM | BYE|ralphtehnader
  Hey Folks,

It's been a while since I've been excited about a new game, and with Donka talking up TF2 and Orange Box arriving in the mail, I'd like to get some peeps on vent tonight to go over the fundamentals, and give it the old college try.

And if you don't have a copy of TF2 yet -- it's 5-games in one Box, for $45 bucks. Awesome deal.

You can also order via Steam I'm told.

If you'd like, stop by at 8pm EST:

Vent Server:
Password: bcdcrules

I'll make a TF2 channel, and maybe we can hop on ECGN afterwards for some comparing/contrasting.

Rock on,

10/03/07 OSP Wednesday Night Pug
  Posted on Wednesday, October 3, 2007 at 10:08:43 PM | BYE|ralphtehnader
Hello All,

Hoping we can assemble enough for a pug tonight set to kickoff at 9pm EST. I'll be on ECGN before then, trying to round up the troops. I'm now hosting a Ventrilo server out of Virginia. Here are the details:

Vent Server:
Password: bcdcrules

It's 24 slots so hopefully it will be enough for everyone still playing this wonderful game.

I'll be on vent around 6pm EST to setup the
red/blue pug channels.

Rock on,

Weekly Wednesday OSP
  Posted on Wednesday, September 19, 2007 at 10:23:05 PM | -doNka-
  As suggestions are flying around I'm re-doing this post into a reminder for Weekly Wednesday OSP pub. Now all we gotta do is to have all those people from ECGN and PCNups to unalias and come back to OSP for 1 day of the week. Start spamming IRC around 9pm this Wednesday for some OSP action. or
Dallas based, 24 slots.

What's your dm_base of the future?
  Posted on Sunday, September 9, 2007 at 08:11:23 PM | MUST B H4X
  So... RTCW is bleeding out dead and there are some interesting games comming out rather soon (which means long before RTCW2 will ever come out). I would like to know what games the RTCW community (of the past and present) is planning to move on to or at the very least is looking forward to. Are there any former RTCW teams that are planning to head to another game and stay as a team? What are you guys looking forward to and why?

I know that personally I'm looking forward to Crysis because of the insane engine and the way that you customize the style of play. I'm also looking forward to Call of Duty 4 as far as competition goes, because it looks like (for the most part) it would be a good competition game. Haze is a game that looks like it may have a good single player. The game Severity that is being developed for the CPL for obvious competition reasons... as well as StarCraft II because of the replayability of a good RTS.

No need to say RTCW2.

(p.s. anyone know where invisi has gone? :p)

RTCW OSP 3v3 Tournament
  Posted on Thursday, August 23, 2007 at 02:23:51 AM | cr//st33la
  Over the past few weeks myself and a few others have been working on throwing a RTCW OSP 3v3 Tournament. Before ordering servers, and posting the sign up page, we would like some feedback on the idea from the OSP community. So we know if it was a waste of time or if teams will sign up and participate. There is still a bit of work that needs to be done but if we get the feedback we hope we do sign ups will be available shortly.

Gang Kidnaps Top Gamer to Get His Password
  Posted on Saturday, July 21, 2007 at 08:57:21 PM | -doNka-
  An armed gang of four kidnapped one of the world's top RPG gamers after one criminal's girlfriend lured him into a fake date using Orkut, Google's social network. After sequestering him in Sao Paulo, they held a gun against the victim's head for five hours to get his password, which they wanted to sell for $8,000. And yes, the story gets even better.

RTCW2 exists?
  Posted on Friday, July 20, 2007 at 08:16:59 PM | FuZioN)nG(
  Small mentions of RTCW 2 in an article over @ IGN

"IGN: So what's going on with id right now?

Tim Willits: We have a lot of stuff going on right now. You're here to see Quake Wars [check out that preview here] so I won't go into that right now. We're working with Raven on Wolfenstein right now and we'll have a little more to talk about with that at QuakeCon. We're here talking to potential licensees about id Tech 5, which is the structure of our new title being developed internally."


Someone going to Quakecon, please fill us in. And pictures too if we're that lucky ;)

OSP Pub Night This Thursday.
  Posted on Monday, July 2, 2007 at 03:32:11 PM | -doNka-
  It's time to stop beating around the bush and put your mouth where the balls are(Dodgeball). The ideas and requests are flying around to get the OSP night going on. We've seen a few suggestions for both, a pug or a pub night. Let us start with a pub night to see how many people we can gather on a given night. I'm sure with what we have right now we can easily fill up a 16-20 slots server and get some good old wolf OSP action going like the old times.

OSP Server IP: }-{eaven's Gate by The BirdZ 333 FPS!!!!! (CHI, needs rotation)

I'm sure most of the people would like to join some vent to chat, so we need a Vent info as well.

Vent Server IP: TBA

Article: RTCW Competition History
  Posted on Friday, June 22, 2007 at 07:44:27 PM | -doNka-
  Believe it or not, some people don't even know that article column exists, so there's a need for this post.

Karpov & Co spent quite a bit of time lining up the most detailed history record of RTCW competitions and major dramatic events that followed. Besides actual events you will find some scores, rosters, champs, and comentaries by those who could remember their lives behind the monitor 5+ years back. The whole thing came out to be pretty lenghty, but read it anyway, you will be entertained.

So far has ET:QW met up to your expectations?
  Posted on Thursday, June 21, 2007 at 05:31:11 PM | hollywood
  Splash Damage opened up the Enemy Territory Quake Wars beta to the public yesterday. Currently only fileplanet subscribers (have to pay $) can only test out the beta. In the next couple of days it should be open up to non file planet subscribers (free) but you will not be guaranteed an etqw beta key. There will only be 60,000 slots. If you are not in the beta already, there is close to 1,000 people playing online on about 140 servers across the US, Australia and Europe.

Splash Damage had made it clear that this is a beta version and not a demo. Many people on various forums that have played many previous team based games are already calling it a failure.

If you are in the ET:QW beta please post your feedback.

id Software
  Posted on Wednesday, June 13, 2007 at 09:42:12 PM | [+ oo] rampage
  Just a follow up from the already well known "secret" engine that id has been working on. It has finally been put to video and shown for the first time to the public. I couldn't get a better link other than a download link so if anyone can find one please post it.

You could also go to and view it there.

10:14AM - "So the last couple of years at iD we've been working in secrecy on next-gen tech and a game for it... this is the first time we're showing anything we've done on it publicly." iD Tech 5... "What we've got here is the entire world with unique textures, 20GB of textures covering this track. They can go in and look at the world and, say, change the color of the mountaintop, or carve their name into the rock. They can change as much as they want on surfaces with no impact on the game."
