Competitions

Activision sends word: "Continuing to induce a resurgence of energy throughout the PC gaming community, Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) announced today that gamers will be able to battle it out mano a mano against Kornelia - the famous top-ranked professional gamer, in the DOOM 3(tm) Kornelia FragFest at this year's QuakeCon 2004. Sponsored by Alienware®, the contest takes id Software's recently released sci-fi horror masterpiece, DOOM 3, and pits gamers against Kornelia in deathmatch mode for the chance to win a handful of prizes including an Alienware Area-51m performance notebook computer. The one-day fragfest will take place Friday, August 13." Of course mano a mano means hand-to-hand, but I doubt Kornelia is actually planning on having any fistfights on the convention floor.

I played a Q3 1 on 1 against Kornelia in 2000's ECTS in Londin. She's one hell of an awesome player so prepare yourself ....

she comes first in all all-female quake matches like queen of the hill, AFQ, etc. but 7th or lower when playing with men

Nope, if she were Korean, she'd be playing Starcraft, not Doom 3. Kornelia is from Hungary. She's also left-handed. So basically, a l33t Quake-playing, left-handed Hungarian girl.

A GIRL is now the top ranked professional gamer? My God, next thing is we'll get a team comprised of football jocks or something.

How the world changes...

I can be wrong but i think "mano to mano" means "man to man" or "face to face" since "mano = brother" or "brotha" if you live in the suburbs...

yeah, DOOM 3 was neat. Now release Quake 4 so we have something with replay value.

Thanks, buh bye.

He cut the possum's face off then cut around the eye socket. In the center of the belt buckle, where the possum's eye would be, he has placed a small piece of wood from his old '52 Ford's home made railroad tie bumper. Damn, he misses that truck.

Especially since she weighs all of 88 pounds.
