I got together with my former wingman in Suddendeath - bps,
to talk some about his new clan etc. Happy reading.
1. Hey bps, tnx for letting us interview
you. I think most of the scene knows who you are, but plz
Well hello! I'm Jon, 25 year old webdesigner from Gamla Stan
in Stockholm, Sweden.
2. Tell us a little about your quake
career. How did it all start? and will it ever end?
Hehe.. I started off softly around ~98, a friend came over
to my place and happily informed that you could type
"/connect <ip>" and join an online server. I
stunned, it was just amazing. So for the first years it was
all ffa in RealQuake (maybe call it VanillaQuake) on a
33.6-modem. Then me and my friends started a clan called
Painmakers that participated in The Mean Tournament (3on3
league, held on the Zoo-server), which we won, defeating
clans like Clan Tjack, InQ and LsD. Then my fiends stopped
playing, and I was forced to convert to QW (against my will
hehe). After a while it became all 2on2 for me, with
different mates. I can't really remember, but my first 4on4
appearances was in the beginning of 2000, in clans like 6p,
Second and some other. Will it ever end - I hope not, I
don't wanna. qw4life.
3. You have been around for a long time
and seen all the "new" mods, models etc etc. what
are you using atm, client, settings and what is the biggest
changes made in the clients over the years in your
I recently upgraded to Ezquake 1.9 stable, which is a neat
version with well though out features. Although some things
(like keymap-settings toggling to swedish keyboard layout)
just makes it more troublesome to handle. On startup, I
manually have to exec some things, and manually alter some
values, to get it all right. Like jumping in a car,
adjusting seat and rearview mirrors :) For the big changes,
I must say cl_independentphysics is a real big leap. And the
new mouse input (ezq1.9) choices. Since I play "lego
quake" I never cared that much for models and stuff
like that, but fullbright ammoboxes and grenades are sweet
4. Ok, now lets "go there"! You
played in my clan suddendeath for several years but last
season (nqr) you decided to traitor SD and start a new clan
called Star Alliance with goblin. What was the idea with
this mr traitor? huh?
Haha.. here we go. I wanted to try something new, that's
basically it. I played in SD many years. And I really like
all guys in there, we've become really good friends, also
out in the real world. It was just before NQR11, and I
talked alot with goblin and reppie, and they were also
motivated to start something fresh. Although reppie still
refuses to remove the fs´-tag from his irc-nick :)
Then all the pieces just fell in place!
5. So tell us a little about this =SA=
clan of yours. It looks like you collected some of the
worlds best duelplayers and put together a team of it. mr
dm2 Locktar, reppie who won QH lan final vs nabbe, mawe,
yourself and so on. Do you guys build your game on
individual skills or have you somehow gotten TP out of these
I wasnt like "let's create a duel clan" or so, it
just happen to end up this way. Lakso were in the same boat
as me, also goblin. For Mawe it was more like: I hate to
face him, so I gotta recruit him! :) Reppie has that very
strong motivation as I have. And out of nowhere LocKtar
showed interest and wanted to try out some serious 4on4, so
then he was signed. No, this is 4on4, and we've really tried
hard to get a working teamplay. And I think our efforts have
payed off quite well. We're often having talks about how to
play on certain maps and versus certain teams. We've also
together studied some demos of ourself playing, commenting
what was good and what was bad.
6. Obviously you guys are doing something
right since you ended up taking the bronze in NQR gold cup.
Whats your expectation´s of the upcoming EQL tourney?
do you guys aim to kick some tvs but or what?
Hehe.. This is the time of the year we all wanna go
outdoors, and not be obliged to prac hard to keep up the
shape. We will "play just for the fun", leaning
backwards and chill out. We will listen to goblins wise
advices on how to play cmt3/cmt4, because we're all kinda
unused to these maps. I rather only play cmt3 of these two,
while cmt4master lakso will take my place in there. We will
kick tVS' butt the coming fall...
7. Yeh about the map pool, we decided to
extend it with cmt3, cmt4, do you think this is a good/bad
choice? do you think we should stick with the old tb3 for
all time to come and never ever try anything else? i know
much people has oppinions about it.
My personal opinion would be to just have one more map as a
starter. And that would be cmt3. If people learns to live
with this and it's appreciated, maybe it could be extended
with further map(s). The skill level will sink on those
maps, and I don't know if I like that. But it's fresh; maybe
an investment for qw's future...
8. The qw scene has had a big boost
lately with rookie teams building up and playing in nqr/eql
and thats the best thing for the game. Do you see any
upcoming star(s) among the new guys?
I'm personally training Supernova in duelling, he's become
my padawan. He will soon rise to be a knight in shining dm4
armor :) Otherwise Lob0 is a real specstar, credz.
9. So give us some drama. what do you
love/hate on the servers, fakers, lamers and so
I hate to "wait 5 seconds" to change map on a
server :) Also to trix n' fix with server.txt-files to make
new servers appear in ezquake serverbrowser. I've stopped
caring about fakers, but I really vomit from the tuoppispam
10. Give us some predictions for your div
(1) in this eql. Who will win and who will end up
1: the Viper Squad. 7: Bear Beer Balalaika. But those cmt
maps will make it possible for many upsets!
11. Ok bro! thanx for your time and happy
gibbing this summer. Any shoutouts/fuckyouall:z?
Thanks man! Shoutouts to all the nice qw-players out there,
especially to the SA-fanclub, you know who you are <3
