I'm trying to do a simple map in Qgis using mapquest has background. I have read that and followed the scale values but even while using those, I get some bad blur on my map. I can't figure out to do take it away. I just wanted a simple base map for my map but it seems it's not so easy to find, i thought mapquest could be the one but ... doesn't work well :/
The current version of openlayers plugin has solved the blur effect in a better way than the blogpost did.
Changing CRS to EPSG:3857 might also improve the picture.
