Great news for everyone attending Quakecon 2004!
MESQUITE, Texas – July 6, 2004 - The battleground is set - the 9th annual
QuakeCon 2004 video game festival and tournament at the Gaylord Texan Resort &
Convention Center in Grapevine, Texas on August 12-15 will host the first DOOM
3™ deathmatch championship ever. Be there to game, hang out with 5,000 of your
closest friends, and compete for $150,000 in cash and prizes in the NVIDIA
QuakeCon 2004 Championship Tournaments. First-come, first-serve online
registration for QuakeCon 2004 has begun at http://www.quakecon.org. The must-attend
event for gamers is free to all attendees.

“We’re having a DOOM 3 party this year, and want to offer our fans the first
opportunity to compete in a DOOM 3 tournament,” Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id
Software said. “NVIDIA is putting up the largest QuakeCon prize package ever,
and topping it off with DOOM 3 prizes that will have the competitors’ adrenaline
rushing.”

NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in graphics processing, is putting up a
combined purse of $150,000 in cash and prizes for the three QuakeCon
tournaments.

“For gamers, QuakeCon is the most exciting happening of the year, and this year
it marks the arrival of DOOM 3 – which is one event we wouldn’t miss!" said Dan
Vivoli, executive vice president of marketing for NVIDIA. " NVIDIA's presence at
QuakeCon gives gamers an opportunity to test drive the game with NVIDIA's
GeForce 6 series, a product family designed to deliver the ultimate DOOM 3
experience to gamers of all budget-levels."

DOOM 3 Inaugural Deathmatch Championship:
Yes, you read that correctly. DOOM 3 Deathmatch is coming to QuakeCon 2004, and
there has never been a more level playing field. With DOOM 3 launching this
summer, there won’t be anyone who has had time to practice or master the game,
and almost any QuakeCon attendee has a chance to walk away with one of the
exclusive DOOM 3 prizes. We’re not telling you what they are just yet, but let’s
just say that they’re fast. Registration for this 128-player tournament will
begin August 12, 2004 – the first day of QuakeCon.

The QUAKE III Arena 1 vs. 1 Championship:
The definitive gaming challenge is this 1 versus 1 battle in the Arena and the
only QUAKE III Arena tournament officially sanctioned by id Software. With
$50,000 on the line, the intense battle begins at QuakeCon on August 12, with
256 players going toe-to-toe in this legendary death match experience.
Registration will kick off July 11th at 8:00pm Central Time on http://www.quakecon.org.
Go to http://www.quakecon.org for official tournament rules and prize money
distribution.

Quake III Capture the Flag Tournament:
The 4 versus 4 Capture the Flag tournament is sure to deliver an unprecedented
level of fast-paced team action. 32 teams will begin 4 versus 4 double
elimination championship rounds at QuakeCon 2004, where they’ll compete for
$40,000 in cash. Registration for the open seeds will begin on July 11th at
8:00pm Central Time. Teams earning a berth in last year’s top 16 spots will
receive an automatic berth this year. The remaining team slots will be filled on
a first-come, first-serve basis. Teams can visit http://www.quakecon.org to register
and for official tournament rules and prize money distribution.

No, not this year. :)

But I've been a fan of his for a very long time, :) He's sort of..like a role model, :)

It sounds silly, but I hold great respect for him above anyone else actually, which says a lot as I'm a big cheerleader for my friends at rSports Gaming in Counter-Strike.
