    Instagib duel gametype choice

    I would like to see an instagib duel gametype choice. This is what railgun instagib was back in Quake3 days and I'm surprised it isn't an option now. Please create it. Thank you.

    Instaduel is absurd for obvious reasons, but u can always make a custom server.

    Not that I entirely disagree, but I'd like to hear some of the "obvious" reasons why it's absurd.

    Back when I played a lot of insta, we did a lot of 1v1 iCTF which was both great fun and great practice. I recall setting up a few iDuel games at the time and as long as one person didn't just try to hide after taking a slight lead, they seemed fun too. Nothing like proper duel of course, but an enjoyable game nonetheless.

    You can do it already. You simply need to spawn it yourself. Set the starting weapons to railgun only and turn insta on.

    That's one of the obvious reasons you wanted. The best strategy is to camp an advantageous position and wait for the enemy to get bored before you.

    Before the flames grow. There is a part of the insta community which LOVES to iDuel on dm17. There was even an (more or less) organized "insta dm17 duel"-cup (is Fi still alive?) with a good portion of drama (chants: we want max! we want max!). I loved it.

    It's 'obviously' stupid, because it lacks every skillful element from other modes. But one could say similar things about any mode (duel lacks the teamplay and watching pac-men is boring, tdm is only ffa and maps are boring, ca is all aim no brain, etc). But carmac said it nicely once, as long as people play it competitively and the best person wins in the end, the game has its place.

    However, it's easy enough to setup an insta duel server already. And it's been a while, but i believe you can easily save presets for server configurations.

    Some were already mentioned, but for me the main reason for this mode being absurd is that you are left with aim and positioning but you do not need any control or timing. And this is not Duel. This is 1 v 1 whatever the mode is.
