Thought this was a bit of interesting trivia; while we haven't made much noise about it, one of the country's more dominant gaming communities, Queensland Gamers League, is 10 years old this month.

10 years ago this month, we took the workings of the popular LAN I created in a timber shed in Salisbury, Brisbane, called Regen Lan (named after our Quake clan of the same name) and made Queensland Gamers League. The first event was one organised to Promote Wireplay called Wireplay Invades Brisbane, which saw a national competition in Quake over the then closed Wireplay network.

Quite a few members of the team that went into creating that event went on to create AusGamers out of a large part of QGL as it stood two years on from that.

More maybe interesting info: Wireplay was a brand licensed by Telstra from BT in the UK. The Team that created QGL and AusGamers later went on to take over the operations at Wireplay and finally removed all the closed environments making Wireplay open - removing the wireplay brand and replacing its system with home-grown technology that we used to go on and re-brand the service as BigPond GameArena - who continue to use that technology today.

It has been one hell of a ride with some awesome guys and its great to see some of the people who came to that and many other events, have been long time fixtures in the team at Mammoth Media today. Awesome times; here's hoping for ten years more - maybe we should have a LAN!?!? lol

RIP Tony Eaton

Well I gotta say a big congrats must go out to all the Mammoth team and the QGL lads over the past few years - I didn't make it to many LANs but hung around a few of them to say g'day and catch up with peeps.

The development of the business and the achievements of everyone should be commended as you've taken a hobby and turned it into a successful company (let me know when you float please).

As for the forum, QGL will always be my homepage and #1 spot on the internet - it's a great community of misfits and retards that all blend in well with each other except for that deviate guy who tried to e-bash me.

I had a mate that used to play with 2 joysticks, one for movement and one for aiming. It actually worked well for the most part, just not as responsive for snap aiming. In some ways it's similar to current console control schemes.

I went on a stats bender a while back and did a bunch of things like users with the highest/lowest average post sizes, users posts over time, etc. I'll see if I can find the code, it's still lying around somewhere

Yeh, it started with a few rounds of free-for-all DM, I forget how it finished - in duels I assume.

It was the first comp system I wrote and it crapped out. All I really remember from it is the stress of figuring out how to keep the comp going when my crappy program broke.

Oh, I also remember having a big screen TV, or at least big for its day (supplied from Buba's work I think?) that displayed the competition scores. That was pretty cool.

Because you're linking to the image webpage, not the actual image itself.

Hey we all spent hours fixing noobs network cars, how about kudos for all admins! Towards the end most of the Lans we all gave up bringing our pc's!

That's why we stopped running it, the guys who owned the joint were douchebags. We tried to find a few venues that were okay, but there wasn't a lot of support.

Coming 10mins late to the LAN and having to break the coax to play.

Lan's at keato's and rats where the best. I remember a lan at keato's rat had a shoelace tied around his mouse arm and one end of the baby swing so he could kill two birds with one stone :) I also vaguely remember some weird lan at pantsmans studio in east brizzy.


I'd forgotten about lanning at Keato's and Rats. I remember the night Q2 came out we spent it under Keato's place playing DM till all hours. That lan over at East Brissie was when we all joined SAS. We had like 20+ players there, was a mad lan, playing DM on Rats custom maps.

yeah flashing up that lame wallpaper for a few mins earnt me a retail copy of mohaa so foad!

also note hueeeg 21" monit0r plus stereo and gametheatre xp with sony dj headphones. i was trying (unsuccessfully) to emulate the best cheaty sound card ever.. the aureal a3d. that card used to have hearing distances 5 times further than normal so in cs you could hear footsteps at the opposite spawn practically. it was like having a fkn radar, only worked under win98 though :(
