    As usual players from other game types insist on telling dyed in the wool FFA players how they should enjoy their game.

    QL advertises this...

    That's what we are paying for, right there in plain English.

    Sounds like another excuse for justifying a wide skill range in tier 4. Ironic when you think about it.

    I'm not seeing the downside to this. A game that is exciting enough to be exhausting is a good game, surely?

    Fave - Trinity
    Most often seen voted in FFA - Hell's Gate or Campgrounds - which is fine by me :)

    I think it depends on whether the players being pwnd are at least capable of taking on the challenge. In tier 4 FFA those of us who get whaled on understand the game and can at least make an effort...

    Close competitions are more fun. If pwning is your thing, do in the company of worthy competition. Or is that not fun to you?

    Considering the servers are provided, it's a reasonable deal. What makes it less attractive is the content over game play direction that is being pushed. Why have they not figured out that forcing...

    The attempt to market game content rather than the gameplay is the root of the problem. The devs have probably been forced by the publishers to shoehorn a classic game into a new DLC based model. QL...

    Tier 5 should never have been dropped. The map pool lets me vote on 3 maps I'm not interested in most of the time. No wonder I'm playing less these days.

    Awesome, thanks. I tried A3D on Win2k when HL1 moved to Steam but it crashed most the time.

    I don't believe that the Q3 engine had A3D built in, unlike Half Life 1, plus you would be lucky to get working drivers in anything past Windows ME. But I agree, I have not heard directional sound...

    The reason is that the publishers wish to retain full control of their content. Hence the map pool nonsense. It's unfortunate that QL is not a content based game, so it is a misguided model from that...

    How are they going to make any money on QL if all of the average players get stomped and quit? It makes no difference to me in tier 4, but it's a dumb business model. All they are going to be left...

    You could paraphrase that statement as: We rarely see any ex-tier5 players complaining that the competition is too easy, when it obviously is. It's the same attitude.
