    I watched a bit. Seems to me almost no brain game (Almost lost for sure), but insane damage output.

    QL doesn't need more tiers, it needs more players (С)

    Watch the positioning. It's great. You can see the few times a player gets it wrong and dies instantly.

    Well yeah, positioning is important, but on Almost Lost for example, 100% fights were on GL. Giving the size of this particular map piece it's a bit random when 6 people just keep moving during freeze time.
    More noticeable is that you fail first 1-2 rockets - you're dead meat.

    Lolca is the simplest mod of them all, to the point lots of people think it's not quake at all. With that said, it still has some basics in it.

    Positioning is about the details. For example on top of dm6's bridge it isn't the same being at the corner than being next to the lg ammo stairs or at the rl entrance. All those three are different positions altogether, with different weapon usage (corner=rl, stairs=lg and plasma, rl entrance=rocket to corners or rail to the rest) and bad picks will get you killed immediately (rail, rocket, lg respectively).
    And that's the individual side of it, because there's also team play on that. On almost lost players go to that side of the map (and to the lg right in front of it) because of good reasons.

    Other related details are angles and aiming at exact spots. For example cypher doesn't have the best rockets in the game because he is more talented, but because he has all angles and spots (pixels) studied, spotted and practiced more than the rest..

    Then it requires constant practicing as it is quite different than other mods, being warmed up is of the essence, prefer not taking a 1v1 fight so the team gets a 3v2, lg is more reliable than rockets though they have the potential of dealing more damage and are great for comebacks, in general terms rail doesn't work at the beginning of rounds, etc.
