    A ton of great answers are given to this intriguing question. After reading through this, and many other threads, I'd say it comes down to the community.

    I don't think we strive hard enough, as a community, to grow the game. Too many of us are seasoned veterans, and unwilling to stray from the hardcore play we are used to. Luckily for me, I was humbled way back in 2k3 (out first round of 1v1 tourney, which was a 12 person FFA, top 6 move on, I finished 7th ), and have been able to keep it fun from then on.

    Many of us are also unwilling to relinquish our freedom of control that we had over this game. As much control and options as this game has, we still get upset about what we have lost. Things like total map choice (even custom), voting, and not to mention the ton of server variables we used to have (although yes, it did cost more to run your own server back then).

    In the end, we let it die, and it will be up to us to bring it back to greatness. This is the definitive shooter. There will never be better. We can not hope for improvements from the current key holders, we must plan for the community to work it out.

    Too bad rest of the world disagree Quake stopped years ago, while genre moved on. There is no such thing as "definitive shooter". Games are constantly changing - you either adapt or you die. I mean what's wrong with QL? it has playerbase, devoted fans. You want more players? That would require "modernization" of game. And very cleaver game designer to lead that change.

    @ Lorfa

    What you have written is excatly what I meant - Xonotic has auto jumps, Warsow dashing, "lolmania" brings some new ideas and changes a lot.

    Shootmania really only has one weapon (except in certain spots), no armor, no items, large terrain, few configuration options, odd/slow "on the moon" type physics, and is entirely team based.
    See? Guys have completely different approach to twitch-FPS - God knows if it will be good one in the end, but they keep trying something new.

    I'm pretty sure the only reason lolmania has people playing it is because they're throwing money at it in tourneys. As soon as the money stops coming in, people will leave, because the game is that bad.

    Designer with a cleaver feared by many.

    Is more like throwing good ideas out :-/

    I wouldn't call "lolmania" a twitch-FPS, it's more like a floaty-slow-suck-FPS.

    Maybe with future versions it will become more palatable but I doubt it because I think there are issues with its basic structure/approach.

    I get that QL has to adapt to stay alive and there's a lot more they could be doing, but that has been the case for many years now. It's not that people are opposed to it but any kind of radical changes will take resources that don't appear to be available in QL at this time, and may never be available.

    I think he's saying that it's garbage and that he doesn't want to play it though. I personally gave my invite away a while ago because I knew ahead of time that it was crap. Just from hearing about it from other players I knew it'd be a waste of time to spend installing/downloading it.
