    Nov 19-21 DevPick: Retro Weekend

    As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, we begin to reflect on our past. As is also tradition for QUAKE LIVE, we've thrown up some modified servers for the weekend. For this weekend, we've reflected on the old days of FPSes. Days before bright green robots even existed, days when everyone looked like Ranger. When rockets and lightning reigned supreme, and the days of ridiculous amount of air acceleration were all we knew.

    This DevPick attempts to bring us back to those days. We've modified the weapons around to try and match up to their QuakeWorld counterparts, if only in spirit. Ramp jumping is enabled, which allows you to jump to great heights up ramps, slopes, and stairs. Air acceleration has been turned up, to really get the breakneck speed going.

    Retro servers are now running in CTF, CA, and FFA gametypes, so check them out for a quick diversion from modern QUAKE LIVE.

    Likely to remain as a pro server option also.

    Love the idea, but the movement doesn't feel like QW at all
    Especially the lack of decent air control when just using the strafe keys.

    Still hoping for (optional) CPM gameplay one day! That'd get me subscribing for sure.

    i hate this , i think its great that we come this far but now its gotten silly!, ive been a beta member for ages! and couldnt wait till we we alpha public , but then bang i get home load it up and u got to pay! omfg . So any so called cpma type of styling devpicks! , when feedback is gd they slam the pro feature ass on it! so lock out all the beta members just for gd cash flow! , cant beleave id screwed us. Last time they did this crap was when quake 4 came out and what a downie it was.
