Multi-Arena Headquarters presents the individually released arenas for the Quake 2 RA2 mod. These were released separately to the official Rocket Arena 2 maps. Each map contains a Pick-Up Arena for team play, as well as 1v1 Arenas for one on one matches.
In speaking with this major prick of the Strogg and telling him about Earth, you acquire a signal to Earth's television broadcasts. You flick through the channels, but he keeps stopping you at a football game. He was very impressed how one team just marched up and down the field, totally decimating the other team. He comments on how fun the game could be with weapons. They were probably watching the Eagles (I'm from Philly). A deal is made and a date is set, the battle over planet Earth will occurr on a football field. Team Marine vs. Team Strogg.
Online gaming was just ridding itself of diapers. A scant few massively multiplayer games existed (Lineage for one, it was released that year). Quake 2 was the game to play, having been released the year before. A childhood friend of mine, (Asmodai by name) invited me to play a new mod for Quake 2. The mod was called Loki's Minions Capture the Flag - #LMCTF , the first Capture the Flag modification for Quake 2, released the day after the Quake 2 source code was released.
'Quaddicted' sein koenntest? Gibt's ruhig zu!!!!! Ich denke, dass eine Problemseite wie diese wirklich weiterhelfen wuerde! Vielleicht gibts ja auch einen Verein oder sowas. Ja, vielleicht sogar die anonymen Quaker. Ich denke das Ihr sonst in 2-3 Jahren alle dort sitzen und zittern werdet und Euch ueber die Zeit unterhalten werden, wo wir noch "drauf "wahren!!! - Unsicher? - Verwirrt? - Durcheinander? - yu lange RailOnlz geyockt? - keine Panik!
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.
The community is still strong in Australia. There are still some great servers around the country, including our own (220.127.116.11:27951), that have regular groups of players who hang out and have a frag or two. Instagib seems to be the mod of the moment, a server side mod (no download needed, you just connect and play) with our own server, Alphalink (18.104.22.168:27911), Wireplay (22.214.171.124:27999) and EISA (126.96.36.199:27930) being the pick of the pack. GX is still going strong, something about the skill and discipline of the game keeps people keen, and Alphalink (188.8.131.52:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play. Quake II LIVES!!
