Last night 'Tribe of Tjernobyl' faced 'Slackers' in the first NQR playoffs match.
'Tribe of Tjernobyl' lacked some of their key players, namely ToT_Oddjob and ToT_slime. This could be the reason why they lost to 'Slackers'.

'Tribe of Tjernobyl' and 'Slackers' will meet again in Smackdown playoffs. This game is scheduled for Sunday at 21:00 CET, and will be a best-of-5 match.

It will be interesting to see if 'Tribe of Tjernobyl' decide to change their lineup, from their previous game vs 'Slackers'.

While you wait you can go checkout screenshots and demos from 'Tribe of Tjernobyl' vs 'Slackers' NQR playoffs game here.

Kryten got the playoffs page up and running, so now you can see first hand, who your next opponent will be, who you might meet in finals, as direct links for all playoffs match results.

Link for the playoffs table, and playoffs/qualification match results can be found in the menu to the right, or in a link right here.

It is now also made possible to report all playoffs / qualification games on the page, using your NQR login.
You simply report your game, the same way you reported all your previous games.

NQR started with 12 maps, and that is how it will end aswell.
For the Playoffs Finals and qualification games, both types using a best-of-5-maps system, here are the rules regarding maps:

Each clan will pick a homelevel, wich you may choose from the official NQR map pool here.
All remaining maps will be considered as Decider maps, and will therefore only contain a map pool of DM2 DM3 and E1M2.

If the map order cannot be decided between the 2 clans, it will be chosen randomly, supervised by the admin present.

I hope all questions have been answered, but if you still need some issues clearafied, your welcome to drop by #NQR @quakenet, and grab a hold of one of the opers, or mail me @


eh... - 021213 @ 03:08:27
if its 1-1, why dont the clans pick another "home" map?...and if its 2-0 why dont the team that has 0 choose map #3, then if it gets 2-1, the other team choose their 2nd "home" map? Does a 5 map battle mean the 12 map pool does not exist anymore when there is potential 3 maps to go? Why was not this stated in the rules before the league started? Bad change of rules dear admins :( :)

This isnt a change of rules. This part wasnt really explained in the rules in the first place, wich was a mistake. I didnt make the league, nor the rules. Just trying to get through the playoffs, so we can correct the small errors for next season =) I thought the idea of one homemap for each, and dm2/dm3/e1m2 for the remaining games, to give a mix of smackdown system and nqr. In smackdown you can ONLYplay dm2 dm3 e1m2, wich alot of ppl like, and here you can also play your homemap, wich you can choose from a 12 map pool. This only applies for very few games, since there are a few walkovers in qualification games, and in playoffs, it only applies to the finals, so if it really is a big inconvinience, at least it wont concern a large crowd, and can easily be fixed for next season =)

"I thought the idea of one homemap for each, and dm2/dm3/e1m2 for the remaining games, to give a mix of smackdown system and nqr" ...hmm, when you say "I", do you mean you took this decision on your own, or did you mean "we"? A mix of NQR and Smackdown? whats that ? Paraleague? In case you forgot; This is NQR, not Smackdown, not a mix of NQR and Smackdown...its NQR, NQR teams play on what ever map they like, and make it to the playoffs, but when its playoff-time, they are back to "Smackdown" system again? Too bad for that potential 5 map game CMF-redux then; owned by the admins. You cant fucking change the map-issue when it is the finals. Very, very, very bad decision :(
ParadokS - 021213 @ 15:30:12
As stated before, there wasn't any clear rules, describing playoffs. So I had to make a suggestion to the other NQR admins, and they thought it was a good idea. It was my bad not to phrase it better, in my comment to you. For the record, this ONLY concerns FINALS, and Qualification games. cMF - redux will play a best of 3, a game that will go just as it would have in a division game. Both teams can choose a map from the official NQR map pool, and the decider, if needed, has to be one of the three maps, DM2 DM3 or E1M2 according to the rules. I merely pointed out Smackdown, because they favour DM2 DM3 and E1M2 only for their finals, and we can only concur. I'm confident that this system will work out fine, but if against all odds, clans and players in generel are very unhappy with this sollution, it will ofcourse be revised for the next season.

i think its a fair decision from the admins, its easy to whine using fakenick.
Sorry... - 021213 @ 17:04:06
ye, it was only the final and qual-games, saw that now. Still; CB2 wont be able to choose e3m2 if it is 1-1 and best of 3 maps remains. This is not the way of NQR, it is the way of CHSD. CB2 made 4th spot, because of the freedom to choose that map. And in the most importnat game of all season for CB2, the NQR admins takes that away. Lame, still wrong decision, bigtime :)
fackenicking - 021213 @ 17:08:57
troma: if I choose to fackenick, it is my fucking godgiven right to do so and has nothing to do with the point I am making. But still, if you feel that is a more important issue than NQR admins changing the way of NQR in the playoffs/qual-games, then good for you :)

de e en norrbagge som fakenickar iaf!
Apollyon - 021213 @ 19:03:52
How often would CB2 like to choose e2m3 then? One, two or three times? Or do you have any good suggestion for fair map selection in each round of a best of five match with 12 maps available? I think the NQR crew found a good solution for the two games actually concerning it. After all noone can deny that dm2, dm3, e1m2 are the best maps for competetive play. Playing some other maps from time to time is refreshing but they should not decide a tournament like NQR3. Even if a clan would be so good to beat each and everyone team on their homemap exmy they still have to be good at dm2, dm3 and e1m2 both in the regular season as well as in the finals.
anton - 021213 @ 20:09:02
Hmm, I think what he/she was trying to say is what's the point with a 5 map game when the home map has no significant meaning. If it stands 1-1(as it prolly will if they choose a "strange" map) then its back to square 0; best of 3 maps, as it has been all season long. But only this time it is ONLY the "big" three. I kind of agree that is a little strange. A team has played 15+ games all season long, then when its crunch time, the map rules change. But that does not excuse the fakenicking ;> The suggestion was clear enough for me; you choose your homemap twice and 5th decider is as usual: random among the big 3.
Hagge - 021214 @ 03:13:57
whine whine.. let?s make this to an e3m2 league.... only map allowed: e3m2.. good solution? YESSS! ok let?s do it! good night :/
Firee - 021214 @ 05:15:22
I believe Paradoks and the other nqr found a good solution. Other solution for this 5 map problem might have been 2 home maps for both clan (different maps). If the situation would have been after 2 games 2-0 the third map would have been the clan's which is at 0 maps. This way there could have been played 4 exmy's and the decider from those big three.
anton - 021214 @ 06:31:19
if you are trailing 0-2 after 2 games; yes, then you got some problems, thats correct :P I am only saying random map for map 3, 4 and 5 is kind of lol :)
flinty - 021214 @ 13:42:57
Well said Apollyon. What i'm trying to say is that i agree that one must be good at dm2 dm3 e1m2 TOO if you want to suceed in the league. We won over second, ax3 among others at dm2 e.g.
caspar - 021215 @ 14:36:29
why do they have to random map the last 3 games, cant the teams choose one of the real maps as their second homemap instead? preferably the team with the low mapscore :]
Nagash - 021216 @ 07:18:54
vafan ?g p? alla maps bara. same shit different name
xhrl - 021218 @ 08:09:10
i think the nqr admins have made the 'right' decision for better tdm. I feel strongly that other tdm maps are fun but that for serious games, the manly man's maps are clear: nothing but the big 3.
