Dear quakers, having recently changed my weapon of choice from the gauntlet to the grenade launcher, I have encountered some hostility from players who seem to take offence if people use this weapon, with some even accusing me of "ruining the game".
As a veteran player, I like to keep things fresh, and I am enjoying the new challenge of playing solely with a non-directional weapon. The nade launcher requires different moving and placement tactics, and whilst it works on smaller maps with confined spaces, its effectiveness is virtually zero in wide open spaces. I do not win any matches, usually coming far down the order, but I have a lot of fun which is the main thing as far as I can see.
So come on folks - instead of in-game abuse, le's have the debate in a civilised manner.
