DOOM 3 Inaugural Deathmatch Championship:
Yes, you read that correctly. DOOM 3 Deathmatch is coming to QuakeCon 2004, and there has never been a more level playing field. With DOOM 3 launching this summer, there won’t be anyone who has had time to practice or master the game, and almost any QuakeCon attendee has a chance to walk away with one of the exclusive DOOM 3 prizes. We’re not telling you what they are just yet, but let’s just say that they’re fast. Registration for this 128-player tournament will begin August 12, 2004 – the first day of QuakeCon.

Ok, that means that August 3rd is almost definatly not the release date!

Its august 12!

Id should give up the game, and turn it into a gimick they can let lan events borrow just to bring in a crowd... sigh.

Exactly, and aparently they are gonna let people do it again.

Its worded so it could go both ways, but im gonna bet doom3 will be way after QuakeCon.

Lan partys should be allowed to pay like 50g and they allow you to demo doom3 off to people, lol.

In the line "there won’t be anyone who has had time to practice or master the game" the word practice is a bit worrying, sounds like the early August release date might be wrong.

"there won’t be anyone who has had time to practice or master the game"

That sounds like the release date is very close to the quackecon date... maybe even a little before.

Well, Id loves to BS around i feel.

However, if Aug 3rd was right, i feel thats ample time for a hardcore gamer to beat doom3, then frag four days with 3 other friends memorzing every map.

Here is my estimated Timeline for a hardcore gamer.

Aug 3 - Buys in store around noon (probly just woke up)
Aug 4 - Finsihed Single Player Campain
...

Heh i almost bet you any hardcore gamer can beat it in 2 days. : \

Two weeks will make NO ONE a pro at Doom 3. I still bet the game will be out Aug 3.

Everyone still says the game is on track for August 3rd. Even printed Best Buy Sunday ads say so.

To the average user, but a PowerGamer would glady give up sleep and beat it in 24 :D

Sure hope this guy lives up to its hype. Have seen far too much of the exact opposite happen in recent months. Not being pessimistic just realistic.
