"A3 - Armegeddon 3 - Brissi Convention Center. Here are some photo's so you can put some faces to the people who have been slaughtering you over the past year. My GF's camera was FUBARED, and my photo's of [HF] & [BW] stuffed up :( A 36 roll and I end up half a dozen photos.... Heres what we salvaged..... Bro, came 1st and Trog 2nd. Seven and blade missed they're finals hopes by a single frag... doh! Zhakrin[B2] (yes I can spell it) came in the Top 16. And I, well...... took alot of photos :). Why hold it at such an expensive location and make us poor quakers shell out for it, instead of a couple big sponsors (or cheaper location) is beyond me. First prize was 3dfx Monster Card, and Sidewinder joystick but we're in it for the fun and the glory not for the prize-money...."
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 (18.104.22.168:27951), 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 (22.214.171.124:27911), Wireplay (126.96.36.199:27999) and EISA (188.8.131.52:27930) 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 (184.108.40.206:27950) is without doubt the bees knees for game-play.
Quake II LIVES!!
