The Quake 2 community — featuring player’s philosophies, revisiting the websites of Quake 2 clans, and returning to the scenes of all-night LAN parties — here are the human stories behind the game. Thank you to so many people, all around the world, who have made and continue to make Quake 2 the most fun game to play on Stroggos — and Earth! You are appreciated.
B1-LAN… Home of Berlin’s Underground LAN Parties
"Da Ich andere Modells als Geiseln habe :-) sah diese Szene bei mir 'besonders Gut' aus. EHC und DevEdge Clan beim warmzokkeln. UT-Fraktion beim 'einrichten.' Es gibt auch gemütliche Ecken im Bunker. :-))"
NetzFest: German LAN Parties, 1999 – 2001
"Now we hear more and more: 'When is there another Netzfest?' We are having a hard time with the answer. It is not that easy to answer. We have been organizing net parties for 4 years now and it's always a lot of fun. But a lot has changed in the meantime. There are huge commercial LAN parties (e.g. Inzzide, e-lan) in Berlin, the real gamers are getting younger (or are we getting older?) And somehow play different games, and the appeal of the games is just not that great anymore. Well and finally: our old location is no longer available. A lot of money for a new room makes it difficult to do without sponsors again and then we're back to the commercial aspect… We sat down again and cut a little video with a few scenes from various NetzFestions."

Fotos do Bojão 3 Quake LAN Party: Aracaju, Brazil — July 23 – 25, 1999
"Será um campeonato multiplayer de Quake. Na verdade serão dois campeonatos oficiais: um da modalidade Mano a Mano (1x1) e outro Teamplay (4x4). Um campeonato como este é disputado numa rede local de computadores (LAN), que possibilita resposta imediata no jogo, prevalecendo a habilidade do jogador, sem o lag presente em jogos pela Internet. Mas se tudo isso é novo pra você, então é melhor treinar muito antes de vir enfrentar os melhores jogadores de Quake do Brasil."
