Expect how Quake 4 takes place right after 2 and they only mentioned Bitterman once with

"A lone marine was able to kill the stroggs leader the makron" only for latter in the game his efforts be wasted since they just made a new one

Raving_Cute
Raving_Cute

Bitterman's mission was to destroy the Big Gun and fuck the Strogg's planetary defenses, which he did. Killing the Makron was essentially a bonus.

Gigastrength

This, plus if you compare the invasion in quake 2 to quake 4, the invasion was far more succesful because of bitterman. And did you really not expect the strogg to rebuild the makron? It's like they're whole thing.

Coming away from the last QC beta cycle I realized that originally I thought balance was going to be impossible, but in actuality QC is almost already there.

I honestly feel that Nyx is the only problem, Ranger is the strongest which isn't just okay but good design, and Galena and Clutch are specialists which are better in some game modes than in others.

That's actually incredible for a game still in closed beta.

botters are dead obvious because they have disproportional over-reliance on the hitscan weapons while playing like retards.

it's impossible to be that familiar with quake movement to have such tracking abilities while you eat rockets on every corner like a tool

it's impossible to have such precise and rapid ability to snap to somebody while having the general awareness of a rock

so there's really no accuracy value a botter can run with to avoid suspicion that makes it worth still using the aimbot

During Earth's Second World War, Fritzkrieg was a brutal and deadly member of the German army. When the Vadrigar claimed him, however, they were a second too late. Instead of a healthy new warrior for the Arena Eternal, they found themselves in possession of a handful of shattered corpses-all that remained after an Allied shell had torn apart Fritzkrieg and his companions. Undaunted, they pieced together the intact elements of the various bodies to form a horrific collage of flesh and blood with a mind as shattered as the bodies it had once occupied.

Only a noob would say this. The beauty of DM comes from trying and succeeding in controlling the map, trying to frag as many people as fast as possible, while not dying at all yourself. It's extremely satisfying to win a DM with a 50-2 score and most power-up and quad pick-ups, while mediocre players chaotically fight each-other and have a K/D of about 1.1.

UT movement encourages staying in combat and using the dodge during it. UT2k4 movement encourages pussying away forever to stack up on items.

BunnyJinx

My friend tried to get me into it, but I hated the CTF mode for it, and the melee combat with like 3 different weapons and status effects.

GunZ had some crazy movement mechanics based on a bug with sword blocking and dashes. Each wall jump and shotgun shot in this game had 4-5 inputs to do. Jump, dash, jump off, slash, block, dash. Or switch, shoot, reload, switch, shoot. If you reloaded during a weapon swap it was like 6 seconds faster with a huge downside if you messed up.

If you want to annoy people in your house and have a mechanical keyboard, just play this game.

UT runs on an updated fork of UE1 that was later used for games like Deus Ex so while it is inferior to idTech 3 it's not actually that old and had the benefit of software rendering so poorfags like me could play it when your uncle gives you a pirated copy. I think the biggest difference between Q3A and UT99 is that all the Q3A maps are designed to be arenas and with gameplay in mind while UT99 is just deathmatch across random maps like skyscrapers or beaches. The custom maps for Q3A and the Q3TA maps with extra detail are sexy though.

In Quake Live I think it's taken in 2:1 ratio from health (so if a rocket does 60 to you, it would be -20/-40)
In Quake Champions it's 3:1, and I THINK in CPM and other Quake games it varies based on how much you have/what your armor rating is (red/yellow/green).

1440p (1080p if your GPU is on the weak end, avoid 4K for now - only supports 60 Hz right now afaik and has much higher hardware requirements than 1440p), 120+Hz with strobing backlights/ULMB support.
240Hz might also be worth it, but I've never seen that IRL and you'll have a hard time to push 240fps in most games, even with a 1080 ti or two. Some games are limited at 30, 60 or 120fps.

If you're on a CRT now, the difference probasbly won't be that great (unless you're still playing on 60-75 Hz) and without strobing backlights, there will be a shit ton of motion blur, even at 144 Hz. But the 16:9 aspect ratio is definitely a plus as some user showcased earlier in this thread. Ultrawide (21:9) let's you see even more of the action, but lacks content aside from video games. In that case I'd rather go with a triple 16:9 display setup, if you can stand the bezels.

IPS panel if you want pretty colors and good viewing angles (beware of IPS glow, aka backlight bleeding).
TN panel if you want speed.
I don't know about OLEDs for games.
Quantum dot panel if you can wait for it.

Eizo is good (and expensive)
Dell is good (but they don't have many gaming focused displays)
Viewsonic is good
BenQ is ok
Everything else is trash

I use pic related. Go to blurbusters if you want in-depth explanations (heads up: they call strobing backlights/ULMB 'Lightboost'). Or ask /g/, though then you should expect to get some angry comments about buying gaymen hardware.

Lord_Tryzalot

Deadlyinx
Deadlyinx

Yes, and? They have shit tier quality control, some guy at /g/ had to send back his Asus display 6 times before he got an acceptable one. You either have to win the panel lottery or deal with backlight bleeding when buying Asus. Just google for a bit if you don't believe me. None of the brands I've mentioned have this problem.

Maybe.. I'm not denying that some people experienced problems with them. I never had trouble with ASUS products. Maybe I was just lucky.

This is the exact monitor I have, and I love it.
1440p
165hz
IPS

On a different note, do you guys think 240hz IPS is possible by the end of this year? The only 240hz monitors right now are TN and 1080p, so it doesn't seem worth it to me.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

I have nothing against Asus, I even have an Asus Zenfone and an Asus mobo. No issues here. It's just that when I'm dropping 600+ euros on something, I expect good QA, which is sadly not the case with their monitors. Acer has the same issue, I don't know what they're doing.

That doesn't make the monitors bad, when they work as advertised. I'm glad yours is fine.

I have no idea about 240Hz IPS 1440p, so far nothing has been announced. It's only a matter of time, though they'll probably milk the TN panels for as long as possible. Personally I prefer TN for games, anyway. I use a 16:10 IPS panel as my second monitor (Eizo FlexScan EV2455), which is great for anything that requires accurate colors, but gaming on it just doesn't feel right to me. I use it for anything that isn't video games.

Have you seen 240Hz already? I'm not sold on it, how big is the difference? I already have a hard time recognizing differences between 110fps and 120fps or 144fps, but my eyes are pretty bad.

Emberfire
Emberfire

I also use pic related.
Has a little ghosting, not perfect, but fairly impressive

I bet 240Hz with BenQ Blur Reduction on 1080 is optimal though, since that's a resolution you can most likely maintain 240 FPS at anyway, unless it has some secret hidden lag or some other problem.

TechHater

Everybody does, since at that level, differences are really sublime. Now, between 120 and 240, that's another story.

This video made me strongly consider getting a 240hz. But I kinda want it to be IPS.

Serious question, is the new duel mode inspired by Overwatch? Cause there's an almost identical mode there where you fight 1v1 in three rounds, except both of you get the same hero each round and it changes every round, and the heroes that you both get are random and can't be selected like in QC.

Hunter is more likely to get in than a lot of other characters, if id is planning on making a bunch of characters connected to each other (i.e. changing the backstories so Anarki and Slash met each other in a crack den) due to Hunter and Sorlag's rivalry.

Crash is cuter for sure (despite neither having visible eyes), but Hunter makes my dick cry.

I haven't seen every video posted but the two outlet videos that I've watched doesn't ever label themselves as veterans or imply that they ever participated in high level play. In fact the question actually came up if they ever played pro level and it was a clear no. It's almost like everyone here doesn't understand that just because a game is old doesn't mean the skill distribution is 100% gud players. You could have played CS back then and still be a shit player, which is their problem. It's actually more pathetic that you're all so fucking bored that you have to talk shit about literal nobodies. By the way it's not the journalists' job to be a pro at every genre otherwise they'd be making money in esports instead.

PurpleCharger
PurpleCharger

my issue isn't with their skill level, it's with the lack of understanding of fundamental mechanics of a genre they try to speak with authority on. I'm not saying every journalist needs to be pro level to have an opinion but if you try to speak with authority and present yourself as a veteran player you should atleast have an understanding of basic mechanics. It's painfully obvious that most of these people have not played more than a handful of hours of any arena shooter. It's a genre that inherently requires some time investment to understand. Someone who doesn't know bhopping exists and knows the importance of pickups will have a very different idea of how the game is played from someone who wanders around the map aimlessly.

If someone tried to give their opinion on dota and they had no idea how items worked or have any idea about lane mechanics or hero roles while trying to present themselves as an authority you'd also call them retarded.

As someone new to Quake but wants to try to get into it. It's hard to tell which criticisms are real and which are people being ignorant as fuck or old players having their head stuck up their ass.

Stupidasole

Actually most opinions that I read I think are sensible.
It's also not the right attitude to say "I don't know who to trust", just play the game and then form your own opinion both regarding the game and the criticism you read.

It's very realistic for someone to have played Q3A back in 1999 because all their friends played it, put in enough hours into LAN or whatever else personal life story, yet did not pay enough mind to time their pickups, learn circle strafing, B2R meme, perform pop ups and air kills outside of accidents, and so on. Same can be said about other genres. You could have played CS in 2001 or so and not have learned to wall(bang) the shit out of spots blindly, or have played some fighting game and not naturally develop some long ass combo. People just simply play the games because it was there at the time and seeing a new game 15 or so years later naturally invoke a "oh shit, I used to play this with my buddies back in school" response.

I've honestly not seen that many quake purists, mostly just people complaining about these imagined quake purists. what i have seen is tons of people defending autistic mechanics like zoom 4 damage and rocket delay.

as always though just play the game and form your own opinions, 95% of opinions you read are retarded anyway no matter who they come from

Raving_Cute

It's quite easy to mentally filter the bad ones because the elitist shitposts have no real meaning behind them other than acts of rage. If it's anything about instant dismissal followed by "Quake Live" or "Overwatch" then it's an instant filter. If it appears analytical like "rockets have a weird delay" or "lightning gun does too much damage" or "zoom shouldn't increase damage" then it's probably meaningful.

Poker_Star
Poker_Star

Except they're quoting "Quake purist" concerns verbatim and passing them off as their own while they clearly don't have enough experience with the game to even begin to weigh in on that stuff and they're just regurgitating the talking points they've been hearing. It's also not the issue that they haven't "learned" pickups or mechanics, they basically don't go for them at all. That's a massive indicator that they're not even in the "Played this with my buddies back in 2000!" category because a lot of this stuff is the most basic shit ever not only for Quake but also any other multiplayer shooter from the 90s and early 00s.

I'm a quake and ut vet and QC feels really refreshing, the old arena shooter formula is too sterile and boring for today's standards, people need to feel they control something more than just a model with a different set of voices and there has to be some variation thrown in when it comes to killng other players
QC has given each champ a unique voice, look, personality and abilities, fleshed them out (which is quite an accomplishmen, considering that Anarki, Ranger, Slash and Visor were silent protags until now) - UT is not going to do that and that's why it's going to end up like reflex, ratz and other failed q3a 'reboots'

Thank you, I actually enjoy Q:C too tbqh. The abilities aren't game breaking, they're combining movement abilities several different games, it feels pretty good beyond the obvious netcode problems and rail damage.

Does this mean once I get past Crash, it becomes easier? If the entire Nightmare campaign is just Crash difficulty then I won't even bother.

WebTool
WebTool

No, you'll get raped by aimbotting AI bullshit later on. Crash is easier because her map only contains the shotgun and plasmagun, and as long as you keep her away from the shotgun you should be fine.

once she gets the shotgun, she can handily take on a nightmare Xaero on her own

Spamalot
Spamalot

I might try it but the thought of anything more than 1v1v1 makes me change my mind.

Flameblow
Flameblow

To expand, if you make a botmatch with the two in q3dm0, Crash will win most every time, but if you put 'em together in, say, q3tourney5, she'll probably lose because her AI is set to always prefer the shotgun even when in possession of the rocket launcher or railgun.

Crash is set to always prefer the shotgun
Not because it's the best weapon in the first map (given that it's one narrow hallway, being able to spam plasma down it with 100% accuracy and reaction time would be superior), but because she's Doomguy's instructor and everyone knows how powerful Doom's super shotgun is

Methnerd

Later botmatches end up with 4 or even 5 combatants plus, but the last level of each tier is always a 1v1.

Silly question, which sourceport are you using? I'm playing through on ioquake3 and it's difficult, but when I played through using Spearmint in the past 90% of the time the bots would fuck up and only use the Gauntlet which made the ladder stupidly easy.

MPmaster

I'm using Spearmint and I bitched about the weird gauntlet behavior a few weeks ago here, I thought it was just me but I guess it's confirmed. The site claims to have enhanced the AI but I'm not buying it. It was my first choice because I was looking for something vanilla but hor+ widescreen.

SniperGod
SniperGod

They decreased match cap from 100 kills to 50 and 10 players to 8 players. Then retuned it again from 50 kills to 75 kills, keeping 8 players. I'm happy with the way they're reiterating based on feedback not once but continuously.

SomethingNew

Q3A already uses hor+ widescreen/fov management, doesn't it?

Techpill

This is probably true, but all I'm saying is if this does happen there will be a complete reinstall for what seems to be minimal changes.
Yea, also the fact that people were complaining that heavies sucked so they changed their speed and hitboxes to make them good. They're pretty on point with feedback.

You could make up for vertically missing FOV by just brute forcing your horizontal FOV (which is why Quakeheads are redpilled that XX fov is "too low"), which also fucks up your gun position as it sinks too low I think, you can't achieve native widescreen support like this. Especially that unstretched hud font and circular crosshair.

Alright, check this out. You ready?

Nightmare: Xaero, Major, and Doom. Not in any particular order.

Doom
If he gets the railgun, you instantly lose. Doom is probably the second best at railing people especially on the open space maps in his tier.

Major
If she spawns near you and doesn't pick up any other weapon, you instantly lose. What does this mean? It means she's a god with the machine gun because her AI is set to track you with perfect accuracy. It's disgusting.

Xaero
If he gets the railgun, you instantly lose. Yeah, just wait until you get to that fucking level. 100% accuracy. I had to cheese that shit and hide behind pillars until he ran by because there was no way I could beat that asshole long range.

doesn't have a clue of what quake is
user please. Spawn rng has been pretty bullshit in the past and there's been a lot of work to make it more insignificant. It's about the fact that despite spawning with even stack and equipment your position on the map relative to your opponents determine what equipment you can grab. This game is about controlling the map (armors and mega generally). They're either doing away with that entirely (which, yeah they mostly are) or that's just gonna suck.
Either way. Map control is an integral part of Quake as a series. In all gamemodes but especially Duel.

If you remove that it's not really a Quake game.
This is the wrong view to take. The view you should have is that many games utilise the analog stick poorly. Digital input is objectively a worse method. Even if most games don't utilise analog controls well. A solution to turning quickly is to set the input range of the analog stick very low so a slight movement in one direction means you're doing a full move.
The mechanical aspect of changing direction (you have to pass neutral while with the keyboard every press is uniformly executed) is much more difficult to deal with but I do think that in general it's a plus for games to have more analog inputs.
The mouse got us strafe jumping. Imagine how shitty strafe jumping would be with keyboard look.
