  NQR8 site is up  050216  



  NQR8!  050214  

Many people have asked us about when NQR8 is starting.

Well the answer is: VERY SOON!

We are discussing a few finer details now and will hopefully be able to launch the NQR8 site later this week (although unfortunately it will not be the much-promised "new site" we had hoped for - blame gnorfy for not finishing the design :D). I can't say for certain whether it will be tonight or Friday, but it should be coming soon. Watch this space :E


  End of the season!  050131  

NQR7 is officially finished. Many thanks to all players and teams that participated and helped make this one of the best seasons yet (at least in terms of activity). We hope you'll all be back in a few weeks for season 8.

In the meantime the Custom Map League and Invitational Classic Cup should keep you all entertained.

  News  050126  

Congratulations are in order on 2 fronts!

Firstly, the Division 1 Champions are Clan Malfunction. This is the third time they have appeared in the NQR final and the first time that they have been succesful. Following defeats in the finals of both NQR3 and NQR4, CMF beat Slackers 3-1 on Sunday night. Congratulations to CMF!

In Division 2, El?intarha ensured a Finnish double by beating Veterans 3-1 in the final on Tuesday evening. Congratulations to the boys from the Zoo!

There's just the Division 4 final left and then NQR7 is over! We hope that NQR8 signups will open mid February with the aim of starting the new season at the beginning of March.

Signups are still open for the Custom Map League. We have 26 teams so far so we would like another 10 or so before starting the league. Get your asses in gear people!

There's a few days left in the NQR end of season awards/map vote. I urge you to vote if you have not already (we have only received about 12 votes or something from around 80 clans) - the votes received in this will go a long way to deciding the map pool next season!!
Click here to learn how to vote.

Finally, signups are now open for the inaugural NQR CTF season. Click here to visit the site.

I have posted commentary & autotrack demos from the Division 1 semi-final between Clan Malfunction and Griffins Tappra Gossar. Check out my coverage page for more info.


  Update  050117  

A few things...

Firstly, congratulations to Bufflarna flyger i luften, who are NQR7's first confirmed champions. They beat Clan Cube Squad 3-0 to take the Division 5 title. Well done lads; I hope you'll be back next season for an assault on the next division up.

Thanks to all division 5 players and clans that participated this season and I hope we'll see you again for NQR8.

Xhrl has updated his coverage page with some thoughts on the SR-LA match. Click here to read his article.

Finally, we have a few ideas in the pipeline for NQR spin-off tournaments and leagues.

1) NQR-CMT will be resurrected to run alongside NQR8, with the intention of trying out some of the less-tested custom maps (and also to reintroduce some exmx maps into 4on4)
2) Romeo of the QWCL CTF league will be launching the inaugural NQR-CTF season soon
3) A 16 team "invitiational" knockout cup will be running between the end of this season and the start of this season. More details to come...

Watch out in this news for details on the end of season awards; it will include a preliminary stage of voting for the map pool for NQR8 so make sure you don't miss it!
