Samurai's ETQW Guide to becoming a better player!

Samurai’s Complete Guide to becoming a better player!

This is an ETQW Guide for players looking to progress past the ordinary “public level” in the game. Since there seem to be new cups/comps being revealed and very few players playing competitively I would hope public players would learn something from this guide to improve their gameplay and become more confident to join ETQW Pro Pub Games and to make the cups more competitive and fun for everyone.

Topics which are covered in this guide:
[/li][li]ETQW Pro Tweaks
[/li][li]Useful Binds
[/li][li]Movement, Sensitivity & General Aim
[/li][li]In game Strategies/Key Positioning
[/li][li]ETQW Pro Pub Basics
[/li][li]ETQW Preparing for Competition
[/li][li]Analysing Other Players Styles
[/li][li]Final Comments

Nice but both files are down due to overdownloading. Guess I have to wait.

What about putting it to

(timestart) #4

I’ll mirror it if there’s a working download.

(Susefreak) #5

A quick mirror

@reflex, upload it to scribd

on rapidshare:

This file is neither allocated to a Premium Account, and can therefore only be downloaded 10 times.

This limit is reached.

To download this file, the uploader either needs to upload the file again or first log in to his/her Premium Account and then upload the file again. The uploader just needs to click the delete link of the file to get further information.

slight problem there


Very nice guide, detailed and descriptive. I have two tactics which i sometimes use. The first is Circle Jumping opponents, you get the height advantage as you will be at head height and your moving very quickly around them, which makes it harder for them to hit you if you are fast enough. The other tactic is what i learn’t from ‘Nkm Railbitch’, where you quick-scope the Sniper Rifle at medium/close distance, so you don’t lose any movement speed yet still as accurate.

As you wish.
File will be up 100days after last view so it should be a reliable link.

Hi guys, okay ive uploaded it to and currently adding it to scribd. Will update download links when they are done :slight_smile:

Nice, you ought to post this on all dem pub clan sites. My #1 personal tip is to consider one’s self lucky to have a setup that can actually run QW online well lol, But on a more serious note is stressing the teamwork/communication aspect. I really hate it when people try and play for frags in a competitive match, a lot of the time it makes you lose :o.

Typo on page 26:

[…]already know where they are going to be positioned an
assassinate them. Or you can be stealthy and capture[…]
