Quake Champions Dueling Tips, Making the Right Move EP. 1

Making the Right Move Episode 1, Featuring AaronX86 - Quake Champions Dueling Tips

Quakefans is proud to present a new YouTube series on the YouTube Channel, Making The Right Move.

This series will focus on Dueling in Arena First Person Shooters.

The idea came from Aaronx86 as he wanted a way to produce some high quality, and higher level dueling content for Quake Champions.

Each episode in the future may include more than 1 making the right move but for now we are starting out slow.

The idea behind the video is sometimes players don’t know what decision they should make in specific instances.

Episode 1 features a Quake Champions Quake Pro League players name Effortless and is part of the North American region.

Quake Champions Update Includes New Map Deep Embrace

The Latest Quake Champions patch introduces us with a new map called Deep Embrace.

Alongside many other map improvements and Halloween decorations for your champions, the biggest addition to Quake Champions is the Map. The other noteworthy thing is another Lighting Gun skin called the Incinerator and 2 other weapons skins.

  • OLD PAINLESS – Quake II Chaingun, a vanity for the Heavy Machinegun
  • EXECUTIONER – Quake II Hyperblaster, a vanity for the Super Nailgun
  • INCINERATOR – Quake II Ground Zero Plasma Beam, a vanity for the Lightning Gun

The Incinerator is my favorite skin but also requires you to get level 100 in the battle pass to obtain. So have fun grinding that battle pass or using that credit card to get it quickly.

Deep Embrace Video

In this Quakefans video you can find a quick look into the Deep Embrace Map and a look at some of the weapon skins.

Deep Embrace has a nice little hole I’m sure will take the lives of many champions in the arena. It really is a little hole that will sneak up on you thinking its a quick turn into a dark corridor. Turns out its not!

My overall thoughts on the map are that is the best one that has released in a long time. The Map looks catered towards duel but its also a fun TDM and I’m sure a fun FFA map as well.

This map includes both power-up items the Quad and Protection for some interesting gameplay! If you enjoy smaller maps this one is about as perfect as it can get. It’s bigger than Bloodrun but small enough for some fun engagements.

Tower of Koth and Hardware Cheating – Quake Champions

Hardware Cheats have been a thing as long as I can remember. With console gamers modding their Xbox controllers to do a rapid-fire faster or whatnot. For some reason, I never thought of a Mouse being used as a cheat device until recently. It has come out that Hailstorm the famous Athena players in Quake Champions admitted to using such a mouse. Find out what I think on the situations

Also covering the latest Quake Champions Patch and talking about the newest map Tower of Koth.

How do you feel about Hardware Cheats? If you have an opinion always remember you can leave a comment or mention @fansquake on twitter or join the discord to discuss!

Remember this is also available on all podcast directories!

The Rival 700

Steel Series Rival 700 is the mouse in question here. Apparently it has a “tactical alerts” that let you feel the game.

While I was recording the episode I was curious as to what a Overwatch player would use this mouse for. Even a MOBA game like League of Legends, where does this mouse really benefit the user?

You can set the mouse to do custom alerts… Alerts when something is picked up, a teammates health is low, your health is low, and items. I’m assuming this works with Quake Champions as well as it is customizable to fit any game.

What I’m curious about is how does it know to trigger whenever an opposing player picks up the Heavy Armor for example. Seems pretty suspicious to me.

The Rival 700 looks to no longer be in production but there are more versions of this mouse.

Hailstorm #1 Athena Live

You can watch Hailstorm live and show him some support over on Twitch. I’m not really sure about his streaming schedule maybe I will update this post if I figure that out.

If you are wanting to take your Athena game play to the next level Hailstorm is a pretty good person to bounce some questions off of.

A Word from HailstormTTV

Hailstorm Messaged me himself and wanted to make this statement as public as possible.

“I wanted to make it clear that I was never a cheater, nor do I endorse cheating in a competitive space. This mouse was a learning tool that I quickly dropped when I decided to start streaming and playing competitively. This was a mouse I always spoke openly about because as someone with a disability it allowed me to enjoy the game during the beginner stages and also learn it quickly.

I knew this mouse was not acceptable at LAN or in a competitive setting however so from the very beginning I chose never to integrate this into my play style. I was never a player known for my timing or great positioning because of it and instead opted to push the movement skill ceiling of Athena and adapt a style heavy on raw combat and unpredictability. The incident started because I had spoken about the mouse (which I would openly do) and as a streamer It raised concern that I believed it was okay for use in a competitive/tournament setting which I do not endorse.

There was very poor communication and it resulted in a very poorly worded tweet that created more confusion and anger. I love Quake, and its community and its been shown through the multiple contributions I’ve made and the positive interactions with its members and I believe that cheating hurts that as a whole.”
