About the List

Latest Update: 12/12/06 – Added some Q4 tournaments including the WSVG Finals.

This Quake tournament list focuses on the players and tournaments which have made the Quake series so memorable. Many forget that Quake was the first truly three-dimensional first person shooter and is largely responsible for the eventual development of such popular games as Counterstrike and Halo. In addition to Quake, a few Doom 2 events are listed here, because Doom 2 was Quake’s predecessor and the first game around which a sizeable online first person shooter community developed. Doom 2 (Hell on Earth) itself was preceeded by the id first person shooters Doom (released 12/10/93), Wolfenstein 3D: Spear of Destiny (10/10/93), the original Wolfenstein 3D (released 5/5/92), and Hovertank 3D (4/91).

This chronological list includes any tournaments that I have come across that featured somewhat well known players. The line between Normal Quake and QuakeWorld is blurry, so some events listed under one heading, may in fact belong under the other. The Quakeworld and Quake 2 sections focus on the early years of these games, and although there have been many significant tournaments and talented players since these years, most are not included here. I would like to include them eventually, but so far haven’t had the time to do so. Tournaments featuring mods such as Rocket Arena and CPMA have also been excluded for the same reason.

The Quake players list at the bottom of the page features short descriptions of and links relating to some of the best players over the years, as well as a Quake personalities list which includes some people who have contributed to the world of Quake in ways other than (or in addition to) playing the game. If you accessed this page using the long URL, be aware that it can also be accessed using Quaketimeline.co.nr. If you have any questions or comments please send them to me at email498@yahoo.com. And, in case you’re interested, here’s a link to my crappy personal Quake webpage.
