More Great News
I can't be too specific on this one. Check your email for details.
KoQ would like to give special thanks to AntoNin and the rest of clan Dark Vengeance. You guys are a true class-act. We appreciate all you've done for us! (Hehe, you're right..."Auto" wouldn't be a bad thing in TF! )
I've done some slight changes to our departments. I realise people are busy, so I will leave it to you to inquire about a position. If you see a department (see feedback) that you would like to help-out in, please send me an email.
Congratulations, Snare... The TFiguration pages has reached over 2000 hits!
Rifle Model Replacement
Somebody has created a replacement model for the TF Sniper rifle. This model is black and looks more like a SWAT team rifle than the standard one. Check it out: Rifle Model (26 k). Thanks, Snare.
Saturday @ 9:30am CST.
As usual... hope to see everyone there! Lets all try to be there at 9:30am sharp -- I know its hard to wake up early, but we'll get more playing time if we're punctual. Also, please send us a letter if you cannot make it so we won't wait for you. Thanks.
Did you hear that Rob Zombie has done the Quake 2 themesong? Sounds pretty interesting.
Kouros is from Boise, ID and works in a hospital as a CSR. He is married, and in his own words: "no kids, ... , 1 cat, 0 dogs (soon, though)." He usually plays TF as a sniper, pyro or demoman.
Jenkins hails from Jacksonville, FL. He's a single man, although he does have a special lady in his life. He's our first cable modem user and plays as a medic or sniper.
Needless to say, they are both great players that practice good sportsmanship. We're truly honored to have them join our clan. We're up to 10 members now, and the quality and maturity of KoQ continues... We also had the pleasure of meeting Pilate today. Hopefully we will get to see more of him and Mana in the future.
Message Board, Part 2
If you've tried the message board and it fails to load, just try it again at a later time. It seems that the server which hosts it has slowdowns throughout the day.
A New Tournament
Another tourny is in the planning stages, Fortress Devastation Tournament. It looks fairly interesting...
In an attempt to lessen my workload and to create more involvement for our members, we now have specific departments covering clan duties. In each department, there is atleast 2 members that is responsible for maintaining any area. If you click on Feedback (above) it will display a menu for sending inquiries to specific departments.
It is up to you to work with your fellow members in your department to make this a success. Please contact me if you have any concerns about your assignment.

TF Who's Who
If you're interested, you can fill out a form to be added to the Who's Who in TF. It is a way to get yourself exposed to the TF community, as well as spreading the word on what KoQ represents.
Nature (things not related to TF!)
If you have a 3dfx card and would like to be amazed, download Nature (3 mb) off of the Voodoo Extreme site. It reminds of the earlier demos (not game demos) people would make for the GUS with amazing sound and graphics. Check it out...
New screenshots are posted from the Saturday
Tuesday Meetings Dropped, Part 2
Ok, to clear up some concerns about dropping Tuesday: This decision was not based solely on last Tuesday night's session. I've actually contemplated dropping it earlier, but this session solidified my feelings about Tuesdays.
I still plan on playing on Tuesday nights (as well other days throughout the week, just like I usually do) and welcome everyone to do the same. Its just no longer a requirement... we need to have a good representation when we invite people to join our practice sessions. Saturdays are always better number-wise and ping-wise.
If/When we get our own private server, we will
probably add back a day to our official practice schedule.
In the meantime, I'm sure we will have tons of informal gatherings.
We still have our Saturday @ 9:30am CST practices, as well as any informal get-togethers from ICQ. Anyone that wishes to setup on Tuesday (or whenever) can simply send out email inviting everyone to attend.
New Clan Email Address
To make my life and yours easier, we've setup an official Clan email address:
This should make things much easier on when you attempt to exchange email addresses in games. Pek and I will have access to the mailbox, and we forward all appropriate letters to everyone. This will also keep out alot of junk mail out of my personal mailbox. It's easy to remember, so please take advantage of it.
We are going to be making a few changes soon. I will be restructuring some of the tasks associated with our clan. The obvious reason is to try and alleviate some of the mundane things that I do, but I also hope it will make everyone more active with the clan.
Hey, we're getting close to our 1000th hit...
There really isn't a readme file with the zip
file, so please read this:
Snare has met another excellent TF'er that shares our philosophy -- Jenkins. He's a great candidate for our next member. Everyone will get a chance to meet and play TF with him soon. Check your email for more information...
TF GL Crosshair Fix
Yes! Someone has made a fix for us GL users concerning the sniper crosshair. And guess what? All it did was redraw the sniper site using normal (non-fullbright) colors... simple, yet worthy solution. I suggest you download TFGL Fix (2k) immediately and go sniping. : )
This will be added to the files section in the future.
We're now registered with the official TF Clans List. We're registered with quite a few clan listings now, I'm pleased to say....
Would you like to see some screenshots of Assman's TF level?
BTW, I've also added a page to our strats section...
We still need to expand our clan with other high-quality, good-natured people. I'd like to see us reach 15 members within the next two months. Currently, we have seven members -- so we still have a long way to go... but I am confident everything will work out.
