    LG discharge in water

    In the original Quake, firing the LG in the water would instantly electrocute you and everyone around you. That was awesome. Kind of like an early, water-bound version of the kamikaze bomb.

    Kill stealing isn't unfair. It's just a more efficient use of resources and time. You're accomplishing in half a second and with three bullets what another guy failed to do in 10 seconds and with...

    Why I mostly play FFA these days:
    1. No commitment required. I've got young kids, and it's frustrating to have to quit out of a duel or team game before it's over. With FFA, there's no guilt factor,...

    It's all in what you judge about your performance.

    I get my ass handed to me regularly in 1v1 as well. So, although I still play to win, I judge my round on how well I played compared to my...

    First off, great nickname.

    Second, welcome to Quake Live, the toughest, but most rewarding FPS on the net. Don't worry, you're not doing anything wrong. When you first start, the skill rating...

    True about the rocket knockback. But what got me thinking about it was the person who mentioned the Fragpipe from Quake 2, where you can flip a switch and boil someone in a room full of molten lava....

  8. Give frag credit for causing environment-based deaths

    It'd be cool if you could score a point by killing an opponent with an environmental hazard, like the crush trap on Tourney6 (can't remember the QL name, but Xaero's map), knocking someone into an...

    Knowing where the hell you're going is important. And that's something you can learn on your own, and will help you live longer against more experienced opponents.

    It may be a sensory processing issue as well. I've got this thing where it takes me a little longer to process auditory information, i.e. I'll hear a sound, but it takes me a second to realize 'ok,...

    I sometimes stop to type something mid-game if I'm ahead, or have no chance of catching up. But I harbor no illusions that the little speech bubble grants me some sort of temporary immunity from...

    Unless it's a duel with a friend, I say take 'em out. In FFA, a chat frag is worth just as many points as a double mid-air rocket juggle combo, and in a team game, they're probably giving information...

    I'm like Pika -- if I take a few days off from games, I feel super-sharp and responsive when I jump back on. My flicks are more accurate, and I move with more purpose. Conversely, if I play for too...

    I consider campers to be just another environmental hazard, like lava or the crush trap on Xaero's map. Sure, they can be irritating and distracting, but there's no place that's totally secure for a...

    I went a few rounds with you the other day. Just the fact that you asked for help is promising, and it sounds like you're catching on pretty quickly.
