Haven't played Quake in a long time and when I discovered this site a few days ago I must say that I am impressed with game play, pretty much same feel as Q3. Being a hardcore Q3 player back in the day till about 2003 with 10k plus hours, I'm surprised I never heard of quake live. I pretty much stopped playing than and never looked back as all my friends moved on to something else or whatever.
I'm looking at getting a Pro sub but for 3.99 a month its totally not worth it, maybe 20-30 bucks tops a year for Pro membership is all its worth IMO since I own Q3 can play for free right now if I installed it and right now it looks like only "back in the day" players are playing it, but I could be wrong. I know u want more players and this game totally deserves it as its still the only online game that I would even consider playing.
Think about lower cost and up the advertising, this game deserves more attention.
