The idea for EnemyTerritory.tv started in February 2008, with Mattc0m hosting the first shoutcast for Enemy Territory: Quake Wars. It was a solo, live broadcast featuring a man and a microphone on a lonely Ustream.tv page. The idea grew once support for multiple, simultaneous shoutcasters became possible. New shoutcasters joined the fun and as the staff expanded, we began interviewing teams to get the inside scoop directly from the players before and after each match. Mattc0m realized the galvanizing effect the shoutcasts had on the community but noticed it was missing a central, one-stop resource and created the site we now know as EnemyTerritory.tv.
Shortly after its start up, we decided to take things in a more professional direction and provide a full-fledged shoutcasting service. We wanted a lot of new features for the competitive ETQW community such as a Demo Box, a place for news, and a set of forums that were more focused on competition than the official ETQW Community site. These features became the very successful backbone of EnemyTerritory.tv.
Our goal is to supply everything in one destination--information on upcoming matches, archives of past matches, tons of great video on demand that shows full-length match replays from the lead shoutcaster's perspetive, an expansive demo collection, and tons of other great features. We want to be the only site you need to check to stay up to date with the Enemy Territory: Quake Wars competitive scene.
Mattc0m brought his webmaster skills to create and design the website, and is the founder of entire EnemyTerritory.TV effort.
Matt also is a co-shoutcaster and ET:QW competitive personality. He was the leader of Hell's Katz Squad's ET:QW division, formerly a top rated team.
Best known for his ETQW Video Tutorial Series, and member of the former team !Xc!amation, GreasedScotsman is ET.TV's lead shoutcaster. After each match, he compiles all of the video footage and shoutcasts, and uploads it to our VOD archive.
Greased is known for his exuberance during matches, often exclaiming "Holy SHITBALLS!" when something crazy happens, and generally screams like a young boy playing Nintendo for the first time.
