Honestly and I don't want to add some weight over quake live developpers. But the new interface, the fact you can't simply play while you are surfing. Lauching quake from your browser, makes me play less and less, and also less willing to do so.
This is constraining to have to go through a launcher, the interface looks like the browser, but is not a browser, so it makes it a bit annoying.
I have no will to launch the game like I use to do before just because of that interface.
I know you could not do some way else, but the game will die progressivly, already since the new launcher has arrived, the game seems often empty.
I don't know if it was intended to kill the game or if it was a constraint, anyway i think the result will be the same in the long term.
In my opinion, I have no more pleasure to play it. And now it makes qlranks look like a ghost website, it's neither a really good choice for the small community that we are.
No more linux, no more mac os, damned, quake 3 was in its origin working on all these platforms.
That was just my feeling these days, I will still try to play for the reason, but the reason seems like a treason.
Good luck for the rest.
I will still play to support the game, but damn, I'm disappointed.
