    But even though I don't know you, I saw many of your youtube QL escapades and wish you would play again!

    Glad to know you still found time to post too.
    My rantings about the netcode were mostly laughed about (except by a few other old-school players that also had a ridiculously low ping), even by very knowledgeable people like Yakumo. But about a half year ago, Weird (another old school fellow Dutch player) posted a more scientifically grounded problem description on esreality. Too bad nothing has been changed (or reverted).

    But I think the improvement of anti cheat measurements outweigh netcode fixes :-)

    Also suggest she return to the kitchen as we actually kinda miss you lol.
    Stesamo was dodgy at least, but I think I was one of the few people that really hardly trusted him. Especially since he played very stupid. The aim to brain ratio was extremely unbalanced, even in TDM. But many of my 'friends' did not think so, so I eventually I laid off on it, blaming my general distrust.

    I agree that it wise of Devs not saying anything. I remember back in the Q3 days, punkbuster was constantly circumvented by the cheat builders. Punkbuster took remote screenshots and the cheats either send back a black screen or a screen without any cheat evidence. With Q3 being open, and people having the ability to create their own locally hosted servers, cheat developers had enough opportunity to debug and test. The more a hack stayed 'private' (paid for), the least chance Punkbuster could get a hold of a copy and update their algorithms accordingly.

    That sounds pretty good!

    I secretly knew that, your YT channel is the first channel i've subscribed too. I still see your videos appearing on my YT mainpage. Just wanted to call out your name because I had much appreciation of what you are contributing to the community

    Your competitions about beating records sure are tempting.. :P

    Not quite yet. A more physical requirement is one thing that holds me back.. I need to play on a CRT monitor, and I don't want to pollute my desk with such an ugly beast. If I can't play on 120hz I see stuff twice and everything feels distorted and lagged.

    Haha, no she's protecting me. She knows that when I start, I will get addicted again. The hours I spend playing Quake were insane. So I appreciate it :P

Though now I've been wandering away from FFA because people tend to get mad at the "try hards" timing every item and waiting for quad, etc, and because of the randomness in FFA, but I know that is what makes it fun too ;-)
    Great to hear it helped You should ignore the people complaining, in FFA everything the game allows you to do can be applied without concern. The more annoying the better :-)

    I improved quite a lot in FFA after being a CTF defender for a few years. There you have a quite complicated task of trying to die as few times as possible. I think that TDM and CTF experience help improve the FFA skill. Duel not so much though.

Nowadays the playerbase is more stable, that is its smaller and you happen to find the same guys over and over again - and you know their skill so when X enters the game everyone knows its gonna be short. Or when Y enters, you know theres gonna be some competition.
    That sounds like the last days of Q3 OSP FFA :-(

    Because there are real issues with the netcode that punishes players with about ping 15-35 in some cases.

    The sweetspot seems to be around 45 where the game somehow to start forgive you for close misses with hitscan. However below 10 is still probably the best for a number of reasons.

    Visje, what did you expect. The game inherits the same flaws and characteristics of its predecessors, so it's running its course like they did. Only now, we're in an accelerated environment thanks to the global web - and multiplayer shooter games tend to have much shorter lifespan that the games of yesteryear.

    Frankly if you want to go back to QL, better do it quick. It's not like its going to last forever, you know.

    Look at it this way:

    Who can take seriously the rant of a self-proclaimed FFA world champion winning 90% of his FFA games in less than 3 minutes with his super low ping but still keep repeating 'the higher ping, the better'?

    I'm not here to argue or anything, just saying. I'm well aware of the numerous flaws of this netcode.
    Big slummer glad he left

    visje!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    the game its in the "usual" status,lot of duel cups,some tdm cup,actually we playing tdm nactioncup and the cups from #tdmpickup channel
    got some problems with the voting sistem and the normal/premium map rotation
    normal players playing FFA on not premium server,are forced to play maps decided by the map rotation,cant vote for different maps,this is a bad thing imho,ppl should play every map like in past
    i hope to see you around in quakelive and in IRC,you know where to find us
    unfortunally many of our "PRO" ffa players are inactive,and i miss the nights spent playing ffa with you and all the "TOP TIER" ffa players,this is coz im not playing ffa so much,most of time easy win and ppl accuse me of cheat

    Think of the usual guy that comes to this forum and says he shouldn't be tier4 but tier3, just discovering quakers start to appear only at tier4 and even then the good ones rarely play public ffa or ca.

    well,not completely true,this is coz of the tier sistem
    i remember when playing with visje,stesamo,ipodjunk,medixza,yakumo,trajan,deput ydawg and lot of other GREAT ffa players,every map got a different winner,finishing a match with 4-5-6 players in 2-3 frag difference,that was a great period of quakelive FFA imho,we met every night for challenge each other and have great fun,without much dramas,servers with 16 maxclients,10-12 playing and the others spectating watching the great show.maxplayers 8 and map voting/rotarion ruined FFA a lot imho.

    You can always spawn a standard level server with a size of 16 while enabling map votes, tony. You'll just be limited to the standard map pool; the only difference compared to before would be that the maps are different.
