    Rapha vs Evil QuakeCon final was amazing. Crazy comebacks, 9 overtimes on second map, probably the best QuakeCon finals in history.

    This was crazy: https://youtu.be/8--FybgMgto?t=46m9s

    Rapha playing that long out of control on Elder without the key was insane. The map is hideously skewed in favor of the player with the key, so many people won't understand just how difficult it was for him to remain in the game that long.

    Another top game of all time with out of control management:

    Playing 4 minutes out of control vs the biggest control freak ever, cooller, and winning is quite the feat.

    You are underestimating the power of free for all deathmatch.
    There isn't a place more vile and ridden with scum and villainy then FFA Deathamatch.
    People forget that the big Call of Duty call to fame is appropriating a pittance of that shitfest.

    And now with "hero" abilities that shitstorm would be never before fathomable.

    In other words its going to be popular as fuck and its not going to be because of old quake oldfags or "pros"titutes.

    CPMA movement skill ceiling is higher than everything any UT has to offer.
    Theres a reason nobody ever cared about UT @ e-sports, its literally babbys first semi-fast fps.....

    UT players = have fun
    Q3 players = talk about skill ceiling and e-sports (tm)

    I guess it's all you have when you decide to shun UT for a drab, boring equivalent.

    UT has higher skill cap than quake which is not necesarily a good thing for popularity. And both series failed at esport because id and epic gave 0 fucks.

    Also lel about Q3 movement being superior somehow to UT movement. Lack of dodge alone makes it worse.

    Epic didn't really care about UT in esports which is why they just released it and gone into something else while ID supported Q3 through they years but q3 e-sports were mainly a thing due to Q3 franchize size rather than game itself which is similar how every esport works.
    esport literally works on who is more popular not on who is better.

    UT games have comparatively shit bunnyhopping, though, from what I can recall. I'm not good at any of the techniques, but bunnyhopping is simply so much fun and easily preferable to jumpy dodge and double jump moves and stuff imho.

    id didn't support q3. They had 1-2 guys help a bit the modders and add some maps, that was the extent of it. Carmack was annoyed the community is too demanding while he wanted to play with shadows in the new engine.
    Then they didn't take QLive seriously either, threw it to some interns.

    Warsow movement > quake movement, imo.
    UT isn't about bunnyhipping as there is no way to accelerate and keep (increasing the) momentum. If you just jump while moving you look like an idiot. However, since 2k3 trickjumps are possible, depending on the game, and they're mostly about shortcutting it from point A to B rather than moving faster from point A to B.

    Vrenna's latest album was uninspired as fuck and took too long to get released. He's not a bad composer, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Actually, if QC had a modding support, modders would improve mechanics to be CPMA-like and remove that skills bullshit from hero shooters. That's propably the only way we can achieve decent geam.

    Quake is pretty old and so are possibly many of the folks who first played it 'back in the day', including me.

    I'm kind of hoping that they slow it down a bit and maybe make it easy to hook up a console controller thing in my living room. I'd like to kick back on the couch and show my 'other' and her grandson how we did it back then but without all of the crazy shooting and jumping and stuff.
