Yeah, yet another one "expert" sharing his valuable experience =)
Thanks mate, keep it up
Oh my god, it's another "devs suck and I'm an game design expert with 20 years of experience" thread.
I would not expect much activity on QL tbh. "Modern" Id is not the one that was in the past (Wolfenstein/doom/quake). They have no manpower imo to pump up QL. And let's face it - Twitch Arena Shooters became niche genre for hardcore players. Casuals are those who pay, hardcores usually complain all the time and have snake in the pocket.
Purchasable huds - lol You can make your own hud, what is the point of paying for one?
Purchasable Weapon Skins - If you want weapon skins play CoD
Purchasable Taunts and Animations, e.g., Tea-Bagging, Middle-Finger - Middle Finger? This game is rated T for Teen if a middle-finger is added it will probably become 16+/18+.
At the moment, this is a complete crap-fest. - No, it's not I'm having a lot of fun right now.

Weapons is easily skinable, but you wouldn't notice it anyway - the game is just to fast.
Additional animations - technically possible, but it would require remodelling (its roughly 800 tris per character, they don't have fingers) all available characters.
Oh, btw, tea-bagging is available already.
Real life? Life is real?!
So my question is, if I want the full Quakelive experience what content do I purchase? Also can I leave my server open so anyone can join and I mean anyone? If the answer to #2 is No I need to invite people then I don't think I will be purchasing anything!
You can only have an 'open' server if it's set up as Standard. You can still change quite a lot for it to be standard - team size etc, but you'll be stuck with the current standard map pool and game types.
Not sure if allowing voting on your own spawned standard servers is allowed?
