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]

OriginEdit

QuakeCon originally grew out of a group of people on the EFnet IRC network, in channel #quake. As various regular visitors to the channel began expressing a desire to meet and game together in person, Jim Elson, a.k.a. "H2H", a gamer from the Dallas, Texas area with ties to the local Dallas-area gaming community, and Yossarian Holmberg, a.k.a. "yossman", a computer consultant from Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, came up with the idea of assembling at a hotel. The original event name was actually '#quakecon', named after the IRC channel, though this quickly evolved into just 'QuakeCon'. Mr. Elson organized the bulk of the event for the first two years, until the number of people attending each year demanded a more organized approach. Volunteers grouped into teams to assist in the setup, troubleshooting, and tear down of the event's equipment and network.

1996Edit

The first event,[3] in 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 The Best Western has since been replaced by a La Quinta Inn.

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 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.

1998Edit

QuakeCon 1998 was held in conjunction with the Cyberathlete Professional League. Due to poor planning and the lack of people who had helped make the first two events a success, QuakeCon 1998 is regarded by many as being only partially a QuakeCon event. However, it was instrumental in motivating a group of people to start planning QuakeCon 1999 early.

1999Edit

QuakeCon 1999 was the first event in which id Software played a major role in the organization. Recognizing that major sponsors were needed, David Miller a.k.a. "Wino" & Paul Horoky a.k.a. "devilseye", both original QuakeCon 1996 people, contacted id Software and convinced them to become the main sponsor, and to help out with finding more sponsors. Together with Anna Kang (then id Software employee, now John Carmack's wife) and a team of volunteers, Mr. Miller & Mr. Horoky set out to build QuakeCon 1999, which became the template for later years.

2009Edit

QuakeCon 2009

  • 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.
