Nice to see the addition of quake 3 and TMN, but still no rts? :(
Ye another shooter, whilst RTS' (Warcraft) get left behind =/
WC3 + DotA :'(
Cs ? Wc3 ? -.-
nice :D trackmanai <3
lol quake
Tbh if this was INT event quake would be great choice of game But q3 is just a bad choice for the UK look at the last couple of lans quake had ESWC UK 2008 had 3 sign ups which were Garpy, DDK and some random polish dude that if he won couldnt go anyways lol .

also note that Game frontier hosted the lan even phone garpy up to take part hence he turn up. lol

UT does have a bigger uk commuinty and when it gets lans it at least gets players that can be assed to turn up and play regardless if there sponsored or not

Unless ESL Rethink how this competition is done Q3 NO pros allowed i think would be good u get lots of sign ups plus new intrested in games like quake and ut a huge reason why players dont turn up for 1v1 lans is becasue the huge learning curve that dueling games have

if esl use this format of quake with the pros the next season 3 of EPS will not have a duel game as u will get 8 to 12 people signing up everone will say whats the point

OR use Ut3 ,QL even if it still in beta

yes i have bad grammer and spellin Sry :P sry for the repost
pho ftw ! :D
gogo phoWnage :D
It needs WC3, lol. Poor Team UK :>
Zacc speaks a lot of truth! =D Trackmania is awesome, a lot of people seem to play that
the guy was hungarian, and he could go if he won because he was a citizen whilst he was at Uni in the UK (within the past 1 year), the q3 scene is bigger than that anyways, lots of great players like ska and such didnt go becuase the event is under-publicized??? (is that a word?)

UT its true has a bigger scene in the UK, but internationally its really not so well recognized.

Either game would be great i think but i must agree UT would see alot more people entering.

Trackmania is great news for me though... cya in the finals darky... unless pho comes o_O in which case.. maybe we won't :D..

awesome news for me.. now maybe the UKesa will ditch shit games like guitar hero and cs:cz for trackmania aswell? :p

looks promising, i look forward to it.
Er nem - "now maybe the UKesa will ditch shit games like guitar hero and cs:cz" - Cs:cz OWNS :D haha, but competitively sux lol

And Yeah woot trackmania, hopefully its a 4 way final :)

should be good ;)
