Well boys and girls its that wonderful time of year again the Slipgates are open, and the smell of freshly gibbed players is in the air. To help celebrate 25 years of QUAKE | QUAKECON we have 2 types of of Event Challenges this year. Notice These challenges will only be here for 5 DAYS. The first 8 challenges are for the game mode Sacrifice. In Sacrifice 2 teams battle over a soul which spawns close to the middle of the map. Once obtained you need to bring the soul to your desired obelisk, and your team will need to hold/defend your obelisk for 2 whole minutes. The game mode is a best out of 3, so you need 2 rounds to win.
Next we have 8 challenges for Capture the Flag. Each team tries to take the other’s flag, and capture it. Most captures at the end of the 2nd half, or first team to get 7 mercy captures in a row wins. Meaning 7 continuous captures in a row without the other team capturing one flag during this time will automatically end the game.
All 16 challenges give 5000 XP as well as 25 Platinum a piece. Now might be a nice time to pick up Haste potion if you have not already for this season.

I hope everyone has a wonderful QuakeCon 2021 its shaping up to be one for the books folks. We have so much to be thankful for from the Bethesda/Zenimax communities coming together, and on top of all this we are now a part of the Microsoft family. We truly live in such interesting times. And, to think this all started because some gamers showed up to play some Quake/DOOM together at a hotel conference room. Now if you’ll excuse me these challenges won’t complete themselves.
