PlanetQuake and PlanetWolfenstein at QuakeCon 2002!
Dances, glances and frags by the bucket!
This will be the first QuakeCon I've ever been able to get to and it looks like it's going to be the biggest yet! The already huge list of events and activities looks ready to blow our brainpans with so much fraggin' goodness that four days seems too few and your pals at PlanetQuake and PlanetWolfenstein plan on adding to the action. We've already announced the PQ/OPC Custom PC Giveaway and now it's time to tell you all just what we'll be using that beast for at the event.
Giving away the goods! That's all we really care about and we've got some genuine funk to toss about. We'll be running servers for booty and a little thing that's always been a crowd pleaser, Spot Dances! Yes, I will be explaining things, so hold onto your shorts a sec while I tell you about (get used to Canuck accent here) the phat loot we'll be passing out. From shirts to full games, anything and everything game related is possible!
We've been hooking up with contributors and we've got some very sweet kick-ins from folks like id Software and GameSpy! There's more on the books, but I can't announce them just yet, and I'm still talking to others but the way it works for prize events is; the more we have, the more we can do. No preset limits here!
Everything we do is going down in the BYOC area of the event, so if you get in, you're set for some action. We'll be playing lots of games for fun, and the booty will go in a little thing called "Spot Dances" where skill is not required! Can't Rail or rocket jump to save your life? Then this is where it could pay off!
Spot Dances are a predetermined goal that once met, will get the player a prize from the booty box. The "predetermined goal" could be anything from the last person to frag a chosen player to dying in a specific area or manner. Here's a couple of examples:
All of the "goals" will be pre-done and sealed in envelopes (yeah I've done this before heheh) and I've never had someone not have a blast doing these at events. So that's about it for what it takes, and as you can see, it's all about the fun!
- The first player to die by shotgun in the YA room of Q3DM7!
- The last person to frag Hellchick is the winner!
- The first flaming death in RtCW is the winner!
Did you notice I mentioned Hellchick? She and quite a few others you know from the Quake scene will be helping out, kicking butt and passing out prizes. Expect to be able to frag Sluggo, Hellchick, b3nt of Overdrive PC, and the PQ staffers to name but a few!
Now I've gotta go try and phatten the booty box even more, so have a blast and we'll see you there! Those fraggers that can't attend in person can check out the funk we'll be posting as the events rolls along.
