    Would codex be intredasted in blasting each others' brains in an arena shooter? Could possibly make a tourney.
    Obligatory Maggot summon (inb4 nquake shilling).
    I suggest something like Warsow that's free and can run on every potato.

    Ideas, suggestions?

    Codex 2016 - The Age of Grimoire
    nQuake/ezQuake will run on everything better than Warsow
    Quake 2 is another free option with Q2 starter but I'm not a big fan of 1v1 in Q2 so it would be better for something like CTF, DM, or one of the mods like Action Quake
    CPMA is a big improvement over regular Quake 3 netcode and supports both vanilla Quake 3 rules as well as CPM rules and is great for poorfags/third worlders that don't want to buy Quake Live since there is no more CD key check to play online
    All of these could be played FFA, with teams, or 1v1.

    I'm up for an FFA match in anything really, since I have next to no map knowledge of any game outside of the most popular ones

    I'm in, as long as it's not this week. I have Quake Live and Quake 3 CPMA. Never played Warsow but I can download it no problem.

    ..actually now that I think about it I think I briefly tried Warsow but it was kinda dead, most servers were bots-only.

    I'm down. I love arena shooters. I'd vote Unreal 99, but you said ""FREE""

    Sure, why not. I'd be up for a few rounds. I suspect I've gotten kinda rusty after all those years but maybe it's like riding a bike (which I also started again recently after like 15 years :lol:)...

    Also, if something is finally decided upon, please ping me. I won't be monitoring this thread regularly ;)
    I'm fine with any game, really.

    So I totally forgot about this thread.

    Listen to this man. He means well. And has more time and a more reliable schedule than me, I can't organize shit and promise to appear or stay long.
    So yeah, rally around Maggot for some arena shootan.
