OZQuake Challenge AU: The Art of Instagib

So you've discovered the Insta-Gib mod huh? You've got your rail gun slung and ready to go, you've got an IP or two where you can be assured of some low pings and little packet loss, but how do you get into this very different mod and not come out of it looking like a real newbie? "Insta-Gib is an art my friend, and an art that is worthy of your learning." Wiser words have never been spoken. But more than this you need to feel the rhythm of Insta-Gib, you need to be at one with the rail and the hook, find your inner railer and let the little fucker out, don't be afraid of what needs to be unleashed. Insta-Gib is a primal thing, medical research shows that brain activity of your superior Insta-Gibber is concentrated in the basal ganglea, the most animal like and instinctive center of the brain. So let the animal out, play on instinct, smell the fear of your opponents and hunt them down like terrified wilderbeast.

Queensland Gaming League Quake Champions LAN Finals 2000

An indoor basketball arena at Brisbane's ANZ Stadium was converted into the venue for a gigantic makeshift computer network comprised of over 350 connected computers -- making it the largest gaming LAN (Local Area Network) Australia has ever seen.  With competitors from both Queensland and interstate, the gaming was fast and furious across a number of different popular game titles including Quake III, Halflife Counterstrike, Nascar Rally 3, Age of Empires II and Starcraft. All players were eager for a share in the thousands of dollars on offer. "You always have to expect issues when putting on an event like this but thanks to Cisco who flew us up a router, the network has been extremely fast and very stable," Key event organiser and QGL founder, Adam "Term" Williams said. "Everything has been running on time and according to plan" Two professional Australian gamers, Andrew "Python" Cha Cha and Robert "Lobsta" Campbell, both absent from the QGL event due to last minute training, are heading to Dallas, Texas later this month to compete in the CyberAthlete Professional League Tournament. With over $100,000 in cash prizes on offer, the tournament takes gaming to a whole new level.
