i played the beta and found it not enjoyable. i got poor performance unless i used 25 percent internal resolution which was cinematic 30 fps, EXCEPT for a few areas around the map. i was really disappointed in that. i also disliked how big the maps were. i didn't get to try dueling, because firstly i didn't have three champions (what?), and secondly i wasn't sure if my computer is good enough to do well at all, but if you are supposed to duel on the two maps they have available i could see it as being boring. i really hated playing as sorlag even if "she" was just a lizardgirl (but i also have no fucking clue what sorlag looks like even having played quake 3, i see why they redesigned the character). i hope by release it runs better somehow but im afraid it will only run worse, they really need to optimize

How do I get started with defrag? Can I play it for free? Which game do I need and what's the best place to get maps from?

Coming from TF2, I'd prefer maps with more rocket jumping and less strafe jumping, but I'm open for everything. I just want to get a feel for the movement in Quake. The only FPS games I've played are TF2 and UT2k4 and the movement in Quake feels completely off to me. I keep running into walls and my rocket jumps aren't high enough.
I need to get used to it, since I'll probably play QC for a few years until UT4 is finished. Any chance QC will have a defrag mod?

Also, are there any trickjump maps for UT?

Ralph's said something on his stream very recently when asked about his plans for his future. "Quake champions is supposedly coming out around the same time as overwatch league" I don't know shit about overwatch, so I googled it and it seems that'll be around the start of next year 2018.

It seems like he works closely with the devs and is in contact with them frequently so I'd say his guess is pretty well educated. But I hope he's wrong, I can't wait that long.

Welcome to the next wave of Closed Beta testing for Quake Champions!

This week, we are unlocking all Champions for you to play with, giving you the opportunity to really test each Champion and find your favorites, while letting us know what you think. And since you'll have more than 3 unlocked from the start, we also encourage you to try out Duel mode and provide your feedback. We've also reduced the warm-up time in Duel mode to 15 seconds.

We're working on additional changes and features for the future -- more details to come. Reminder that this weekend's Closed Beta is still under NDA so please no livestreaming. Thanks for your participation this weekend!

Quake has traditionally been played at much higher framerates, older crts usually had high refresh rates.

Locking the game at 60 makes playing quake feel awful, especially if you're used to higher refresh rates. This was fixed in q4max

Also this

TalkBomber
TalkBomber

CRTs have higher refresh rates
Yeah I looked into that and 70hz seems like the only widely commercially available refresh rate that was around at that time. The industry was kinda OK with 60-70hz because the flickering problems weren't bad at that point. So I don't think people would get that upset about it but they're really upset.
feels bad
The argument concerning running quake at higher framerates than monitor refresh has always been odd to me. Carmack has been adamant to not have the 1 frame of lag problem some games face by evaluating input at the wrong time. That's where running a game at a higher framerate than monitor refresh makes sense because you're given a more real-time accurate view of the game.
So I don't see why there would be any difference in feel.

I saw fatal1ty live at a booth at cebit in 2012 playing q3a against random people there on Benq 120hz monitors. Yes it's very different. Have actively decided not to upgrade because I never bother to keep up to date with computer hardware. Would ruin so many games for me to use a 120hz monitor right now.

Some players posted videos even here on Veeky Forums and they did that when their ability was still on cooldown, and did it far too often to be just a mistake. And it's probably fair to say that most beginner/mediocre players do this sort of stuff. It really triggers me, because I'm one of those players who takes EVERYTHING they can.

There is a minor difference between Sorlag and Anarki

Anarki has to gain speed with conventional strafe jumps and has more base speed.
Sorlag does not gain extra speed from strafe jumps, as long as you are continuously jumping you will gain speed, but at a slower rate and with less base speed.

Ok folks tell me about movement in QC. I've played tons of Q1SP maps where I tend to go as fast as possible by bhopping(circle jumping?). I noticed by playing Ranger that I can't go fast that way in QC. I tried Anarki and went sanic fast on my first attempt so he seems to have the same movement as Q1.

So, what's the trick to other champions? Am I supposed to be holding W or what?

They ruined the image of the franchise with this shit copy of a Moba fps. They're probably gonna sell cosmetic items to make money too.

The classes, powers, gun animations, overall casualness of the game will surely attract the kids that love to play games like cod and overwatch.

Make game casual = attract more players = sell more cosmetics and skins = make more money.

The game fails at so many levels. That's why I don't think people can like it. Conceptually sure you may be pleased with the idea of characters in a relatively fast FPS that gather items that are on extremely short timers. But if you've played Quake and you say this is a good game right now you're talking out your ass because you know better. In this game you can barely aim at people compared to earlier games. Lag compensation is all whack, you get hit around corners ALL THE TIME. There's many occassions where you hit people through scenery. Visually, on screen.

It's inconceivable how you can think this is decent even.

Technical problems will surely be fixed by the time this game goes live, since all the other Quake games are fine. In regards to all the actual gameplay differences, id/bethesda are actually taking feedback and changing the game based on it.
My main issue is that they made QL pay to play and they're making this weird bizzaro nuQuake free to play in it's wake. It will certainly bring in some new players, which is what they're trying to go for. Right now the arena scene is dead and this last ditch effort is trying to bring it back which I have no problem with. The core of Quake is still there. It just needs a lot of fine tuning.

IT'S NOT THE SAME DEVELOPER.
For the millionth fucking time.
They're taking suggestions
Sure, but their plan for the game is always going to be taking a presidence. Do you think the abilities were just an inspired moment for instance? Clearly not. It's something they're set on. And I'm sure there's plenty of other objections I have that wouldn't be dealt with.
Right now the arena scene is dead
Ok I can understand where you're coming from now. You just want a game that's sortof OK in the right genre. You need a good game you could actually spend time on. That's fine. But don't argue that it is a good game. That's what these posts have sounded like.
The core of Quake is still there.
Where? I really don't feel it. Sure if you look at the game and break it down by feature you can make an argument for it. But we all know that's not how games are judged for good reason. That's how you make all the "X is a Y clone" arguments that aren't really true.

If we're supposed to talk about the grand scheme of Arena FPS this game simply sets a presidence for the genre I don't feel is helpful. Even if we consider this game a lost cause beyond its usefulness to bring people into the genre (which it certainly does. Look at this thread, two years or so back we wouldn't get close to the bump limit at all) it's not a useful way of doing it.
Well your post completely devoid of content other than insults. How do you expect anyone to take you seriously like this?
This board is 18+ user.
Bethesda as a publisher is horrible at dealing with bugs. And the current state of the beta progress is not promising. Are you even reading the forums right now? They're not communicating with the community well at all. This is not a closed public beta in the old (~00s) sense of the word. This is a modern beta, it has all the signs.

Time will tell of course. Hope you're less naive when you see what happens here.

Dreamworx

Even weirder is how the put mega where YA was. Green armor all over the place is also a very odd choice given that we now have the high variance in armor caps. You'd think they'd be more careful with that system.
The center of the map is just dead. It just facilitates a route to rail and the rockets via the periphery.
Overall my experience has been that it's a very campy game. In QL you had fights over control, you don't really do that anymore because the distances are so large that out of control play becomes utilizing all the armor the other player doesn't reach.
The way the caps work is annoying too. CPMA has good reason for introducing the inability to pick up armor above certain threshholds. Because of its (relatively nuts) movement retaining control becomes very easy. So having to self-damage yourself to deny armor is a very good solution to that issue (especially when you consider the different protection values). This game doesn't need that at all. Control play is already nerfed with the big distances and lack of audio queues.

I think duel is dead. So that leaves the team games but you can't even drop weapons for teammates (afaik) so clearly that can't be where they put their effort. It's possible they have a secret gamemode which they aim to promote. Which could be fine. But it seems weird to not try it on the community under the NDA.

“Last year at QuakeCon, we had our new team game mode called Sacrifice,” says Willits. “We thought it was great. We went to the convention, they were like, ‘Yeah, it’s not going to work.’ We’re like, ‘All right,’ and we basically scrapped it. A few weeks ago, we were in Poland and we were like, ‘Hey, we fixed it. It’s awesome.’ They played it, and they’re like, ‘Nope, not quite.’ Now we’re working on the fourth iteration of it. When you throw away an entire game mode based on 60 pro players, that’s definitely listening to your community.”

On this topic.
Does anyone notice any variance in the speed gain based on aim? It really doesn't feel like it to me. It's at least not noticeable enough to matter I think.
I think rockets should be ignored because they're buggy atm.
The RG feels like it's more rapid fire than QL that had a 1.5s cooldown. It's far too powerful for such an easy to use weapon.
The MG and HM have always been intended to be rather weak but I dunno, it feels like they've just made it random now. Its spread is pretty ridiculous at medium range even and but the damage is really good (12 damage per shot is really crazy).

I dunno about the LG. It's what I tend to measure by, it's usually the highest reliable DPS weapon in all of these games. I think the range is maybe a little too big but the maps are bigger so it's hard to tell.

Quake Champions currently is, and is certainly gonna stay, nothing more than a casual game.

Deal with it.

The developers are just using a familiar name for marketing reasons. The game is not even a fast paced reflex game. Here's why...

Quake used to be the purest skill-based fps game. It was raw. Everyone started even, and the only way to win was to get good. You had to have extremely good reflexes to have the slightest chance. Period.

How can Quake Champions be fast paced, if you have different classes and perks? You now need to think about the perks and powers of the class of the enemy... Does he have a shield? Is xyz power on cooldown? And so on. You can't act fast anymore, because you lose a fraction second analyzing the powers of the enemy.

Kids and casual players love to have classes and other perks, so they can still have a chance to win... without having good hand-eye coordination and reflexes.

No more need to play 10 hours every day to have enough skill to enjoy the game.

The game is free for one reason...

To attract a lot of players and then sell them cosmetic items and other shit to make them feel good and compensate for their lack of skill.

Do you think that making the game hard as the real Quake games would work for this type of business model?

Hell no!

If people find a free game too hard to enjoy, they'll just ditch it. And if they ditch it, they won't buy cosmetic items and bring in money to the greedy developers.

Now, I don't care if developers create such games and use similar economic models, because I stay away from them. But I'm really upset about this one, because they are fucking up the holy name of Quake, which had a good reputation and represented a specific genre.

quake champions mite have been okay if it were a mod for quake people could CHOOSE to play. like had abilities/champions lolquake been a mod back in the day i would have cycled it in between rocket arena/weapons factory/tf/ctf/aq2/tdm/dm and some others.

but as the main game mode? fuck no. they could have tested their brilliant "idea" by making an abilityquake mode for quake live, saw it was deader than ctf, then scrapped the retarded concept and saved us all the time of dealing with this abomination.

Quake used to be the purest skill-based fps game. It was raw. Everyone started even, and the only way to win was to get good. You had to have extremely good reflexes to have the slightest chance. Period.
No there has certainly been more pure games with regards to skill. What Quake has had is a good mix of strategy and execution. Just like all the old successful games, CS has that too. Very different but it's they're similar games in many ways. Day9 had a very good high level analysis of competitive games that last and one thing he mentioned was that these games are built to force interaction. The Quake mechanic for forcing interaction is control of items. Quake champions has made a lot of changes to this which I think bring about more passive play.
You can't act fast anymore, because you lose a fraction second analyzing the powers of the enemy.
This is dumb. There's bigger issues with the system but adding another uncertainty certainly isn't it.
In QL you already have to consider your opponents arsenal and what kind of armor/life they have. Adding "is this skill on cooldown" isn't that big a deal when you consider that they almost always know when its been used. The cooldown pickups are a bit of a mistake in my mind. Visor is fucking awful, it's rare for you to know if he has it up or not.
No more need to play 10 hours every day to have enough skill to enjoy the game.
And this is perfectly fine. The problem is when the changes that allow for this destroy the game. Don't present it as an issue, present it as a potential goal of the devs that motivate these changes.

I don't like how you write this either. This is looking like a false flag even. But I know how stupid arena FPS players can be so that's just what to expect. Frankly when you call people "kids and casuals". You sound like a teen who thinks he's all grown up. Just so you're aware.

I can agree with the general sentiment if we strip away the elitism. It's a changed game.

How can Quake Champions be fast paced, if you have different classes and perks?
Because... the pace of the game is... fast?

You now need to think about the perks and powers of the class of the enemy
This adds a new layer of depth and thinking.

You can't act fast anymore, because you lose a fraction second analyzing the powers of the enemy.
No, you have to learn to act fast now and predict their behavior based on their champion of choice as well.

Kids and casual players love to have classes and other perks, so they can still have a chance to win... without having good hand-eye coordination and reflexes.
You keep insisting that perks are nothing more that an easy way out for bad players, but you even said that "you lose a fraction second analyzing the powers of the enemy", acknowledging that abilities add more tactical depth.

No more need to play 10 hours every day to have enough skill to enjoy the game.
You don't to play that much unless you're handicapped. 10 hours? What the fuck? No one plays that much except NEETs and top pro players. You simply don't have that much time if you have a life besides Quake, and also must work/go to college. I play an average of 4 hours a day and am doing quite well actually.

To attract a lot of players and then sell them cosmetic items and other shit to make them feel good and compensate for their lack of skill.
Ok, fair point, but these are the types of people who will never git gud, because lack the mentality and motivation to do so. At least they keep the game alive and support it financially by buying ingame stuff, so they're useful in their own way. CS: GO survives in large part because of the same system, and that's not even a free game.

And since you're a retard, making you the only person in the thread who can't see how retarded you are, you're not gonna take that for an answer.

Stupidasole
Stupidasole

What?
These are completely orthogonal features. POTG is for contextualizing the game you just played to bring about a more social experience (people perceive the fact that people are watching the POTG and feel good when they get them).

Recording gameplay is for narcissists or people who have an external group they socialize with outside the game. It's not what is to be assumed the normal situation for a public match.

They don't overlap unless you have all your friends in the game and you all watch the POTG. That's when OBS and POTG share purpose.

And again, being able to quit out of the game during the score screen and the POTG solves all your concerns. So it's not a big issue to implement this optional feature..

You didn't even mention the armor system and life/armor caps. Because they're far more important than having to keep track of when cooldowns are off. Any veteran quake player should find that shit trivial by now. Maybe if you're a CA shitter that's one thing but even most CA players I've had contact with aren't worthless duelers who miss items all the time.

Booteefool

how they use their abilities
If you've played the game at all you'd know that they're more often than not serving very obvious purposes.
I didn't even consider it an issue. Ranger, Visor, Anarki and Clutch are the only ones that have situationally significant skills.
Visor is completely unavoidable. At most you can respect some rail angles a little bit more.
Anarki might be a bitch and duck behind a corner to top himself off. He has a very loud effect sound that plays though.
Ranger has the best active movement ability without a doubt. The orb is trivial to dodge if you consider the offensive aspect. But again, it's loud. If you're using it to move you're absolutely going to do it in private.
Clutch is interesting. I don't see it being used much but it's probably the one you have to be aware of the most.

The reason I detailed these is so you can understand that it's not really about you playing around these abilities as much as it is you choosing to use these abilities. They all have trivial counters except for clutch who can trap you very effectively if you have the wrong weapons.

If you're not able to predict how these will be used, especially once the meta has developed, you're simply bad at the game.

I never said it didn't have way more back then, but saying that "Diablo 3 killed it" is beyond retarded.

friendly help to the newbies

Most important thing to realize is that you're at your weakest off of spawn, and you shouldn't challenge people with more weapon pickups and stacked armor than you until you've gotten some stuff yourself.

weapon spawns are 5 sec
health globes are 20 sec
YA(25 armor shields) are 15 second
RA(100 armor breastplate) and Mega(the big 100 health cross) are 30 seconds
Quad Damage every 2 minutes
Quad is 2 minutes from pickup just like everything else, so the first will spawn at 8:00 but might not get picked until 7:55, so the next is at 5:55 not 6:00, etc.
the little bar circle things are 5 second intervals
if you see full bars then you can assume less than 5 seconds to spawn

GOING FAST is easy.
Holding spacebar auto bunny hops.
Strafe jump by holding forward and left or forward and right while jumping, and gently turning into the direction you're holding. Right to right, left to left.
Even a little bit goes a long way to getting around quickly- think of it like sprinting. As you do it more, it'll become more natural, and you'll be able to get more and more from it.
Walking around is preferred when you're focusing on aiming and dodging.

This was proven time and again by Warsow, Ratz, Reflex and other stupid fucking Q3A clones I don't even know about. Nobody plays them. Nobody wants them. They're obsolete. The genre needed a breath of fresh air, something to spice up the game, make it more interesting.

I played quake since 2008 regularly and gotta say that against all odds I dig champignons

there are some things that are concerning like current duel mode (should have been bo5 or something totally different, right now matches feel half assed)

still game in its core feels fun, and abilities dont obscure it so much

Tell me how I take your ability, permanently deny you the ability to use your ability, pass my ability to you, change my ability, etc?

"We want to make sure we give people what they want," said Willits. "If you create custom game mode, you should be able to set the game up the way you want. If you need to turn off Champions, we'll let you turn off Champions. That won't be a problem."

WebTool
WebTool

Champions are a direct conflict of interest and there's no two ways about it.

Either everyone will be forced to play as Visor or they'll make other champs so broken op to counter it that it won't be Quake anymore.

Playing as Visor is fun for now but I just don't see this working out long term. I already know what they intend to do and it's retarded.

Willits is a clever and smug, he knows that the qq of the "purists" over champions is no different from any other kind of whine. They got schooled by something they don't know or understand. So he can include the option for them to play in their own little corner because they will because all the other games are dead while champion variety team modes draw in the crowds of average people with good taste.

Emberburn
Emberburn

OBS Studio 18.0.1 game capture works 100%

Custom game mode is basically using server browser instead of matchmaking, if you complain about this then there's not much to help you.

The idea of drawing in normies with heroes bait and then graduating them into no champs mode is 100% intentional. If normies want to stay in unranked babby pool then so be it, as with any other game. Keeps the numbers up.

viagrandad

You're just bad. Ranger, Slash, and Anarki easily get the mobility of Visor or better, and Nyx isn't far off. In fact, Ranger is without a doubt the strongest champion in the game. As long as they stay below Ranger in power on any new champion, everything is fine.

Fuzzy_Logic
Fuzzy_Logic

The purpose is to take players away from Overwatch and other ASSFAGGOTS shooters and baptize them slowly. So complaining that a new Quake has champions is absolutely redundant because it will be a repeat of every other arena shooter clone where no amount of marketing and branding can help.

They're like giving oldfags and newfags a treat each and people like you are crying that other people got something too, ignoring the very fact that you got what you wanted, a purist mode right in your hands. Absolutely despicable.

Illusionz

Please stop being retarded about this. If there are champs that can move like Visor but have an even more retarded op ability than wallhacks then that's even more broken.

My point is the more they make the champ play like proper Quake the better they are. To counter this they have to make the champ broken op in some other way or all the other champs are shit.

Why do this at all? It's not Quake.

I haven't played those other champs but can they freely strafejump like Visor? If not then they're doing exactly what I said: nerfing Quake in favor of notQuake gameplay.

I spent an entire day with Scalebearer and I can say that using his skill in close proximity actually results in more duds and misfires than anything. You want to take their health down quite a bit, and then get some running distance before finishing them with it. Everytime I don't wet them down, people just tank the bullrush then pop me in the brains instantly. When you get killed by it, it was probably a well timed execution.

right I just realized I was wrong after I posted. I was thinking of the Biker reskins for some reason.

nah it definitely wasn't more chill overall especially if you were into RPGs since they were in a pretty bad spot in 2007 but the doom community was more relaxed and less autistic
mods were better optimized as well every new mod i've tried has particle effects out the ass and require openGL mode which just clashes with the style of doom

Nvidia is comically bad on amd due to their driver model. You should see if anyone else is having that issue.

I'm on an [email protected] and a 390X and it runs fine. 130fps but this game at 1080 uses over 4gb of vram without maxing every option.

It could be your 3.5gb card paging out.

The other thing you might consider is your DPC latency being ridiculous.

If your mobo has an intel nic many of the proset driver versions are absolutely awful and will cause high interrupt latency that will fuck with gpu/audio/IO to disks etc.

That could cause microstuttering too. You can use LatencyMon or dpclat to check. LatencyMon will tell you the device driver causing issues.

Never played any other Quake game or anything like it.
I put in like 10 hours today. QC is in one word awesome. I like TDM the most. I eagerly await CTF and other team-based game modes.

I played only Slash in TDM:
SSG, RL, and gauntlet are my best weapons. Scored a triple kill with the nailgun and the gauntlet. Against the lightweights, the LG isn't that powerful, I hope they find some kind of change to make it not just obliterate the heavies. The RG isn't bad at all but it's DPS is so low assuming you don't miss, and if you miss you should just die and if you use it anywhere but except when you're airborne you're slowing yourself down dramatically by scoping. It's a lot better to just slot rockets at corners, intercept enemy paths and pickups- that kind of thing.

I think that's the reason for the scoping- to specifically make you slow down when using the two long range hitscan weapons. I actually took non-scoped shots for the 80 just to avoid the movement loss. So I'm changing my mind on the the whole scope = bad. Same goes for the HMG, which is incredibly powerful.

Slash's ability is awesome, no complaints.

Playing this game is flashy, fast, and fun. Those first two- the fact that it's flashy and fast, makes it good for streaming. This will probably be a fairly popular game on streams. Part of the fun isn't just winning- it's looking cool while you do so. Midair rocket shots, crazy rails, high mobility stunts, etc. all make that a thing. I look forward to more.

Good game.

Yes, having twice the health of regular heroes when there's no way any moderately skill player will be hitting you twice as often and having a "win fight" button is blatantly broken.

But she's still clearly aimed for new players.

hearthstone players think this too but their game is retard ez compared to many many other card games.
overwatch is braindead babby tier and that's where this game is headed. complexity added by abilities makes the rest of the game, like timing and map control, worth less. just keep defending babby mode abilities because we all know you're too retarded to get kills without it.

Quake Champions sucks so bad.

I do understand how attractive the game can be to casual players (like most of the people here). It's extremely easy to get kills with no prior experience, and you can use the special champions abilities to get kills/escape without particular effort.

Wanna know HOW BAD it really is?

I actually plugged my Xbox360 controller to test how casual the game is, and guess what...

I was at the TOP of the scoreboard!!

I'll repeat it in case you missed it:

I FUCKING ENDED UP ON THE TOP OF THE TABLE WHEN I WAS PLAYING THE GAME WITH A FUCKING CONSOLE CONTROLLER.

Being able to achieve that shit shows how fucking casual they made this game. They are ruining the image of the franchise.

It's like using the name The Beatles to make a comeback... and play shit songs like Justin Bieber. It's gonna be popular to the average low iq masses, but it's definitely gonna ruin the image of the brand.

R.i.p the name Quake.

I can't wait for the NDA to be lifted, so I can post the video of me playing with a controller on Youtube... it's gonna go viral for sure.

Enjoy your game, casual cunts. I hope you spend a lot of money on useless cosmetic items and skins, so the devs can laugh when sipping champagne on their yacht in Monte-Carlo.

Can't stand the truth?

Mr. "I'm fucking elite cause I play the new Quake, even tho it's an easy as fuck casual game, and nowhere near what Quake is supposed to be"

Pathetic cunts.

That why the arena genre is dead.

Kids don't have enough testosterone to be good at competitive games... they just want skins and cosmetics. Sounds kinda gay to me.

That's just not true. Just because you don't play them doesn't mean they're dead. CPMA is alive. Reflex is alive. Midair is pretty alive during evenings.

laggy movement
It's pretty much everyone, all the time. Half the time ping doesn't even show so I dunno what the fuck is going on.

It surprises me that they're failing that much. They're using iDtech6. Rage (idtech5) had great multiplayer in the sense that there weren't any technical problems with it. And it had harder problems to deal with, physics driven cars in a fast phased game. They even had ramming as a mechanic. So even if all this is gonna be fixed you have to question why they didn't manage to make it better to begin with? ID has always been good at networking.
