    it's always cool when you win with a rail in close combat vs a rl or lg.

    The rail can't be countered long range. Throw some plasma at them and run away.

    Of course that's not cowardly at all.

    TC is a scrub. The weapon is there for a reason. Use it or lose.

    Its aweseome when you realize that enemys just shoot rockets back when you're peak railing

    Edit: If it would just work to show them how to use the rocket launcher cowardly to make them use less rockets

    maybe it helps you like the railgun more if you aim less with your mouse, just hold the cursor still and aim with the movement keys.

    i gave this advice to a lot of people when they first started, and it for sure helped them change their gameplay cus they were able to rail bit by bit after that.

    don't forget, adjustments come in later, just practice it and you will see that its easier to use than trying to be on target with the mouse itself and missing shots do to good dodging.

    let opponents walk right through your cursor this way and attain some quick shot reflexes.

    Aye, this goes for LG aswell. Generally it's called aim stabilization - you maintain proper vertical level and move the crosshair left or right popping the taget as it strays into the crosshair. The same thing, but more difficult, is to stabilize your aim vertically and wait until the target reaches the level of the crosshair (useful for tracking jump pads).

    It doesn't seem relevant whatsoever. Nothig to do with Quake Live at all.
