    DevPick Nov 24-28: HyperGib

    As this week is a short week due to the American Thanksgiving holiday, we are putting up this week's DevPick early.

    This week, since we haven't done any InstaGib DevPicks in a while, we thought we would try and change things up a bit for the IG fans out there. The tweaks are simple, but hopefully fun!

    So, what's HyperGib, you ask? Besides a corny last-minute name due to lack of a better one, the differences are that the Railgun has been lowered from 1500ms reload to 800ms reload, the Gauntlet will inflict 150 damage when you hit an enemy, and gravity has been lowered by half.

    Interestingly enough, the lowered gravity is also great for practicing picking up speed through strafe jumping on the more open maps, so if you're looking for an opportunity to sharpen those skills, be sure to give it a shot.

    For all those who celebrate it, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving. If you don't celebrate it, then make sure you check out some of the QUAKE LIVE Dreamhack coverage this weekend! (I'll be doing both, personally!)

    Happy Thanksgiving! (Tho I don't celebrate it)

    I was kind of happy for reading this post right until I got to the part about the gravity change... :/ I personally never liked gravity modifications but meh, maybe it's more fun with this instagib variation, so thanks anyway.

    @Sm0k3z I agree, gaunt should be insta too in general.

    I think the combination is fun, and am definitely rail spamming on the 0.8sec reload :P.

    It would be stellar to have another game-play format with IG, (i.e IG2 or whateverrrrr). In the meantime keep twisting in creativity...Thank you, and .....Call Me..

    I think it would be better if more air control was in place. It could make some fun space matches if you had a good team railing one person on their team to help them avoid the opponents rails. (the FC would then be able to control their landing)

    No. How about for the next iCTF devmod, add in the 3wave maps.
