UnrealNorth Mixed Format Cup Schedule

This Sunday the UMFC takes place. The format of the tournament will be 4 rounds of Swiss, followed by a top4. For those who do not know how a Swiss tournament works: each round teams with the same number of points are paired against each other (and you are paired against a random team in the first round). As a result your opponents will become more equally skilled as your own team as the tournament progresses. The advantage over using the typical double elimination is that your team is sure to play 4 rounds, and cannot be sent packing early....

Epic just released the Unreal 4 Engine to the world, providing a cheap licensing fee when one wants to develop games using the engine. In order to sway Epic Games to work on a new UT, a petition has launched that you can also sign. But it looks like we will be stuck with the current UTs for the moment.

Unreal 4 Engine to run in the Browser

The Mozilla Firefox Youtube channel recently uploaded a small clip showing the Unreal 4 Engine running in their browser. The new Engine will support both OpenGL and WebGL rendering. The first one should enable the engine to run on the three major operating systems, namely Windows, OSX and Linux. The latter means that in-browser support is also available, and running at almost the same performance as its OpenGL counterpart. The possibility of having an in-browser game that can compete with QuakeLive looks very promising. You can find the Youtube video in the full article.
