QuakeCon 2013 Dates Announced

The Bethesda Blog announces dates and details for QuakeCon 2013, which will run from August 1-4, when the asphalt runs like water in Dallas, Texas:

For the 18th straight year, QuakeCon will host North America’s largest BYOC (Bring-Your-Own-Computer) LAN party, with thousands of fans connecting their systems to play on a world-class network!

Taking place August 1-4, the event once again returns to The Hilton Anatole in Dallas, TX. You can make reservations at the hotel by calling 1-800-Hiltons or 1-800-445-8667 or by going online to the hotel’s reservation page. Special room rate of $159 per night when you reference QuakeCon 2013!

As new details on QuakeCon 2013 become available, we’ll post updates here on the official site, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

159 a night? Ouch

That's about the going rate these days unless you are staying in a crap hole.

Or you too lazy to look around for a better value - of which there are always plenty. I never understood high priced hotel rooms. It's just a place to crash for a few hours and have a shower. Hell, I wish we had those Japanese micro hotels that are basically just that.


The Hilton Anatole, which hosts Quakecon, is a *very* nice hotel. However, since it's full service, be prepared to spend money. If you want to try for something cheaper, check out Priceline or another 3rd part site, or check out the other hotels nearby - there are a few that are right across the street. Make sure to factor in the special $8 parking charge for people booking the Quakecon rate - self-parking is normally $17 w/ valet parking at $26.

yes, in fact I heard on PC Gamer recently Quake 2 is one of the big games played. I find it crazy thinking people are playing a game that over 10+ years old.
CTF? Action Quake2?

I'd think they would have to show D4. What else is there to show?

I'd like to see John Carmack don his yellow football helmet and blast off to Mars in his homemade rocket to battle the Vorticons.
