q3df.org dfwc 2014

As many already know from the forum there will not be a DFWC in march. We do not have nearly enough maps to host it.

Acording to the survey we did last time the next reasonable date for the DFWC would be in October.

So if you are a mapper and want to be part of the DFWC mapping team. Now is your chance to come up with something over the summer.

It has been announced in the forum for some time now.
Now it's official. Walllingering is banned. Times that have been set using this bug will be removed.

As you might have noticed, we have a new entry in the navigation bar labeled "Wiki". In there you can find some hopefully useful articles which will be extended over time. For now only certain users have write privileges.

Walllingering, wallbug, whatever it's called.
Being stuck in a wall to gain speed through airstrafe without moving.

Should that be banned from q3df.org?
