    Why don't we just play Quake 3?

    So people are always like "man quake 3 had this and that put this is ql, this game is nothing to q3 bla bla bla why cant we just pay once ect." and so I wonder why don't we just play Quake 3 then? I mean if there's an interest in QL still there has to be one in Q3 right? Are there any active servers still up for it? Because if there is I'm going to have to hunt me down a copy of Q3 so I can play that instead.

    I guess QL is just too convenient and whenever someone thinks that way he just go look at Q3 and notice it's completely dead compared to QL. To migrate enough people you need an organized effort from those who believe the same thing but it would be foolish to expect id to let that happen in their own forum.

    ^ Exactly. A big part of it is momentum. Then you have the RG being too damaging in Q3A and the fact that qlranks only operates on QL. There is also a lack of central administration that you have here, even lack of an official forum is a bit of a minus.
    Aways ensure you are maintaining a high FPS rate in QL. Otherwise you can be at a big disadvantage. To find out your current fps rate, use the command: "set cg_drawfps "1"".

    In all honesty it doesnt matter that quakelive is missing this or that, dnt get me wrong quake 3 was a great game but even if quakelive was made to be exactly like quake 3 people would still complain about petty little things, what people dont understand about quake is that its not like other FPS were you just kill; it involves thinking and tactics where your enemies going to be and what their next move is and to be good with less

    Unfortunately we cannot go backwards, we must go forward.

    Just because QL has all infrastructure out of the box, no need to worry about servers (there are plenty of them running by ID worldwide), there are single place where you can see your stats, communicate with mates and so on. Q3 isn't that easy to get into the game, someone has to rent a server, perform maintenance. And there are only couple guys who can actually do that (pay for everything, organize, keep up and running), all the rest will whine all the rime

    Q3 was something really awesome, the beggining of something great in the end of the past century, but really, can anyone tell me exactly what is in Q3 that isn't en QL? QL is a remake, with lots of improvments and as namad said everything gets easier because we just have to play, id do the rest

    for example the only reason because I still play UT99 sometimes, its because there isn't something similar to QL in UT world, and i have lots of issues because servers use different protocols/game versions/mods etc

    let Q3A die (i could understand if you keep playing Q1 o Q2 multiplayer today even if is not that easy, i play sometimes in a Q2 USA server but sometimes is no one playing, but you got this awesome thing that is QL bringing back to life the old Q3 and keep complaining?)

    this is my first post in the forums :P
