QuakeCon

is a yearly convention held by ZeniMax Media to celebrate and promote the major franchises of id Software and other studios owned by ZeniMax. It includes a large, paid, bring-your-own-computer (BYOC) computer gaming event with a competitive tournament held every year in Dallas, Texas, USA. The event, which is named after id Software's game Quake, sees thousands of gamers from all over the world attend every year to celebrate the company's gaming dynasty.

The event is highly dependent on volunteers to cover many aspects of the organization of the event. QuakeCon has historically had a reputation as the "Woodstock of gaming", and a week of "peace, love, and rockets!".[1][2]

  • Total Attendance: 7000+
  • Location: Gaylord Texan Resort Hotel and Convention Center, Grapevine, Texas, USA.
  • Date took place: August 13, 2009 - August 16, 2009
  • Date announced: 12/18/08
  • Highlights: Like the year before, Quakecon 2009 had both 1v1 and CTF tournaments for Quake Live. The notable difference with this year's tournaments was two separate 1v1 competitions, one for only pro players, and the other was open to everyone else. This was a much appreciated feature from the community because there was no longer as many blow out games in the tournament. djWHEAT (one of the commentators for this year's tournaments) also expressed his opinions to John Carmack from the shout casting booth saying that the separation “alleviates any hesitation or frustration” for amateur players that want a chance to compete. Quakecon 2009 was also the first Quakecon to have the shoutcasters on stage during the grand finals.

However, it was instrumental in motivating a group of people to start planning QuakeCon 1999 early.

Quake 1v1

  • Date took place: August 15–18

The highlight of this first gathering came on the eve of the last day, when the entire id Software team showed up at the event in a surprise and most-welcome visit, stopping by to chat with the participants. John Carmack, lead programmer for Doom/Quake, participated in a 30–45 min. group chat with attendees on the porch of the hotel. Some ideas discussed during that chat eventually made it into Quake's future public releases. This "Carmack's Talk" grew into a yearly keynote speech that lasted through 2013.

Attendees who had brought their computers along to the event set up a small, impromptu network, in one of the hotel meeting rooms, playing mostly Quake I and Doom, testing deathmatching skills. A small tournament was held, with winners taking home T-shirts as prizes.

The first event,[3] on August 1996, was held at the Best Western hotel in Garland, Texas, a mile or two away from the id Software company offices. Starting with just 30 people, by the end of the weekend the number of people had grown to 100, as news of the gathering began to spread on Internet chat networks. The Best Western has since been replaced by a La Quinta Inn.
