Paris match?

UK vs France Quake 3 grudge match about to get underway in Paris

After a seemingly never-ending series of delays here at the LAN Arena 5 event in Paris, it now looks as though the UK vs France international Quake 3 match may be about to start. Originally scheduled for last night, we are now just waiting for one French player to return from dinner before we begin the night's fragging. Selected by the OGA and a panel of experts from the British Quake community and sponsored by AMD, the UK Quake 3 team includes some of the country's top players. Back in late 1999 our UK Quake 2 team defeated the French by five games to nil, and the home team are looking for revenge this time round. Will they manage to overcome the odds and teach the Brits a lesson, or will it be another Waterloo for them? EuroGamer are providing full coverage of the clash throughout the weekend, so stay tuned to find out what happens next!
