Here's the latest from tVS. Etz said that he can't play anymore for a while, so we took a new member Hib who has formerly played in Finnish clans Zetor and CFF. Welcome Hib. The Groups has been decided for Smackdown and we are in Group A with such easy opponents as FF or n27 among others :) Also we just finished an official fight against clan Orbital Death. Check battles section for further info.

Hi. A small update to wish everyone merry Christmas, and while you're at it, spend a fun summer too! I myself am off to Nummirock tomorrow, and after that to Puistoblues. See you all in fall..

Oh, one other thing. Here are the java sources to the current version of ViperEdit. Configuration files are not included, but the code on them should be rather self-explanatory.

Long time since last update... Anyway after keeping a bit quiet for some time now due to network problems Vipers are becoming active again. Connection probs are solved and we have played a lot of praccys for a week or so and we'll continue doing so 'coz we want to be in shape when the worldwide qwdm league Challenge Smackdown starts. We are registred in the Northern Europe division which is going to be a tough one (Perhaps the toughest) Hope to see many exciting games there and if there ever will be a LAN final to find the World Champion let's make sure that the winner comes from NE shall we :)

Hep! We accepted a new member called Elec. I haven't really heard about him before and haven't had a chance to talk to him yet, but some of us find him a very cool duder. Welcome aboard! Also, we played a match recently, winning HPR by some frags. GG!

Greetings.. a few played matches, nothing major.. yesterday went to see Sonata Arctica for the second time, they rock! Anyway, I am writing this because many ppl have requested my collection of tcl scripts for eggdrop the ircbot, and I've decided to release them all to the public. They can be found here. Included are also some scripts by different ppl beside myself, I just tar'ed my entire scripts directory. Enjoy!

Hello! After a long pause, we managed to arrange two very fine international fights in one single night. First of the matches was fought against Flaming Fist, certainly one of the toughest clans in Europe currently. We lost - they simply were better. Btw I havent seen such a maplock in dm3 after the times that Z was the only clan in Finland that ruled and kicked everyones asses.. very impressive gameplay, FF! The second one was against Tribe of Tjernobyl, also quite mighty troop (see their wars section; defeated Game Over a month back? damn..) there.

The Viper Squad is definitely looking for official matches, especially international ones, so if You feel like it, drop us some mail and let's make it a game!

Well. Blaze finally made it out of the military service, but then our Vainolainen had to go instead. Too bad.. anyways, I just returned from my millennium trip to Malaysia - pictures and a short coverage might follow. Ah, my point here is to say that tVS is alive and kicking ;-) Please do challenge us for a official fight or a sporty training session. /me out.

p.s. nice to notice that my little website editor does not suffer from the y2k bug thingy ;)

Ooooh, The End of the QuakeWorld must be near as sorry losers like us are invited to play in leagues like TopTen.

Ah, at last got everything working again! Our server is now equipped with more memory (?) and running RedHat 6.0. Getting the Java (tm) environment was difficult, and the new version of our website editor (ask me for sources + tutorial if interested in easy maintenance of any site) gave me a shitload of gray hair also. Be seeing ya - have a nice summer!

Skoude and Vainolainen just had their Matriculation examinations, both did very well! Congrats, dudes, sure hope you both make it to study where you want.

Me and RCop participated in Skoude's celebration at Lappeenranta. We met many local Quakers, and had FUN! Took some pics too, and when they're done, we'll ul them here alongside with a lil' report of the weekend.

What else...oh, tVS is 2 years old now! Go us! ;-)

Due to Tribe of Tjernobyl's inability to play against us in the most important match in NQL we got a WO of them, and by winning System7 minutes ago, we ended up winning the Elite Division of the Nordic Quake League. Couldn't think of a better way to welcome a new member to our ranks, namely Pastori! I hope you like it with us.

Well! Quite a load of stuff happened since my last update (hello - I am the only one to update this shit? :) Well, to start with, Seco grew tired in ruling the world in the ranks of the Viper Squad, and left. Dera soonly followed. Valheru was taken in as a full member (don't ask when, since I don't know precisely myself). He will play qw for us, and afaik continue playing q3a in The Forsaken under the name Demandred. Gotta ask himself... also, quake3arena test came out - being quite a disappointment for most. Then, we've plaued our first match in the Nordic Quake League. The opponent was Da Imperial Executors, who come from Sweden. We won by a clear margin.

Bwhaha ;) Had some wonderful time with fellow quakers as we built probably the largest quake trooper pyramid ever put together, and after that has some dm4/dmm4/berzerk mode ON ffa with 32 players! I even managed to finish second before the server crashed...;-)

Here's a small pic I took while in the pyramid:


Check out the these demos - you don't want to miss these:
Some chaotic firing while trying to build the pyramid
Demo of the dm4/dmm4 round! This is a MUST!!

Rock!! We had our 150th clan fight, and fought against Cute also. Now it seems we've reached at least the 5th position in The Liiga, but let's see...tomorrow we'll face cMF, and that one sure will be a very tough one.

Hi! Just finished with our third match in The Liiga. We fought Fraggers United, and won by a clear margin. Also, we've had some trouble with our webserver, Linux system as it is. The FU match was our 148th official clan fight, hold on for just two more and 150 - we're there!

There is a major invitational tournament about to begin in Finland next week, and all the Finnish Quake Superstars are taking part with a few exceptions such as FoB. Teams like Z, GLX, NP! and Fury are there...and us, can you fuckin' believe we were invited!?! Woohoo! Check the tournament pages here. I hope we'll do fine - we are aiming at the 5th place or so, and even that is a bit high I think. But we'll fight hard for it! Also, as the rules state no modified models/sounds, we had to heavily reorganize our PAK filez...check this out! And wish us luck ;-)
