Season 19 Open2020-10-04 09:43 | claire
It is my great honor and privilege to announce the opening of the 19th annual European Duel League!

First of all, I'd like to apologize for being so late with this. Life has been a little more busy than usual this year. For those of you who don't know, I work in IT for education and this school year has been like nothing I've ever seen as far as preparing for remote and hybrid learning and all the other craziness.

I know many of you have contacted me on Discord and email about wanting to join but having problems with your passwords or new accounts on q2scene. I'm hoping to get to all of those today.

Signups for EDL19 have been open for about 3 weeks now, and since I'm late with the official announcement, I think we'll keep them open until October 18. That'll give us a week to put groups up and get started on October 25. Last year we ended around March, which was a little later than I wanted, but I think that was my fault for letting things drag on (honestly I can't remember, it's all a blur).

My initial thought is to keep the map list the same as it was last year. Or at most swapping the one least-played map (ztn2dm3) for something else. Feel free to let us know in the comments what you think about this. There is no official vote or anything, but if a lot of players want a change we can do that.

If you're already signed up, thank you for participating in what I hope will be a good season. If not, I hope you consider joining and having some fun. If you are new to the scene you can sign up by clicking on the "Sign ups" link the navigation on the top left and then clicking the "sign up" button at the top of the list.

Hi pplz. Add me to players list if its possible. I'm pretty inactive, but wanna play some duels.=) I was missing all of you guys.emo
2020-10-28 10:37 
There are no words to thank Claire, this man has kept q2 alive along with: all packetflingers servers, opentdm library development, discord, demos, pretty much all related to q2 and i m sure i missing things) wich cost money and time. All i m saying is he might need some help during this period, more then ever... I am willing to help and i think OTHERS TOO. The funny thing is that he rarely play q2 but he still did it. Dunno how he managed to keep this consistency for such a long time but hats down for you Claire! If you need any help atm pls let us know! emo

Is there any webmaster to help claire who carry q2scene.net last 10 years since wision left building
claire now hosting q2scene.net in USA and it become stable after several crashes over years and data loss
claire also hosting all packetflingers servers keeping q2 alive
claire also hosting ~6000 demos from all leagues lat 10isl years

so if you are able to help just rise hand

when claire get time from his day job he will do it
2020-10-27 06:12 
I agree, i think Claire needs some helping hands. It seems he s pretty busy lately and i dont think this will change soon... Covid wont leave us so easily emo

Why isnt the league up and running? This is not good at all, claire need to have some ppl who can stand in for him, its not possible to have one guy in charge who not have time.

Personally, I think maps like z3, rdm2, ptrip should have been binned years ago and replaced with maps like Kold, growlis and OMF.

Personaly i think you are eating mad cows meat

kold and omf are developed with help of community and they are in EDL since they are finished but you was drudged drunk or just retarded as you always been

show demos where you play growlis to prove to know what are you blabbing about

Growlis is the best duel map not yet implemented into the EDL:
- It's complex yet has fluid mobility, which means people will have to think fast.
- The geometric design of the map doesn't allow for one specific weapon to be overused/abused.
- It's designed in a way to encourage tactical and strategic thinking. It's also undeveloped tactically and strategically.
- Not many people know the map so it applies an equal playing field similar to OMF.
- The map is quite well balanced in terms of item placement, spawns and health/armour distribution.

Personally, I think maps like z3, rdm2, ptrip should have been binned years ago and replaced with maps like Kold, growlis and OMF.

q2duel1 is bad conversion from quake1 where is played without rail and aerowalk should stay in quake1 because guy who converted map in his wildest dream couldnt know 22 years later his map will be played with 1000 times faster CPU and GPU

spirit2dm2 is conversion from map In Arms of Lilith original made for quake2world and have very bad rail position and items weapons and amo poss.

even changing places rail and mg didnt help to map become more playable
APKIS tested on jumps 2008 and two EDL champions tested spirit2dm2 last 10 years with map oweride rail>-<mg (its possible to change weapon items position without creating new maps and it work on r1q2 and q2pro servers
2020-10-12 17:15 
q2duel1 should be definitely added. how about spirit2dm2 also?
2020-10-11 07:54 
Despite the fact I won't be playing EDL this season, I took my old Q2 guide and completed edited it into something new.

If you are interested, you can find it here: http://forum.tastyspleen.net/quake/index.php?topic=23094.0

Some people have mentioned they can't download the guide from Tastyspleen without signing up, so i've uploaded it to sendspace too. You can download it here: https://www.sendspace.com/file/78qjz2

Good luck everyone!

Hi all )))) emo
2020-10-07 08:43 
q2duel1 aka aero(walk) is total BS nowadays
from one spot control all spawns wants only nubs with low ping

q2dm2 would be interesting because claire fixed BFG bug so now is real duel map too

i would add map witch passed ADL test but not dismiss ztn2dm3

one map more wont make difference

awoken growlis painkiler2 etc should be 1st tested in some kind advanced duel league by small group of skilled players or one weekend tournament
2020-10-07 08:04 
awoken emo

Would be nice to see some action on Awoken or Growlis emo
2020-10-04 11:34 
I vote for q2rdm5
2020-10-04 10:00 
ztn2dm3 to q2duel1
2020-10-04 09:46 
I think we should swap the map

ztn2dm3 to q2dm2
