Does /vr/ like arena shooters?
>>
>>5648251
i do, ill play anything. quake, doom, descent, douk, blood, unreal, painkiller, halo,xonotic, teeworld, serious sam i might have to reinstall it but i can easily get ahold of everything above. i love freezetag and freeforall, i play quake live occasionally just to get slammed in a duel or get pissed off at that new server feature where people spawn right fucking behind you with rocketlaunchers in freeforall
>>
I miss the glory days of UT99 every fucking day
>>
honestly bunny hopping is a garbage glitch turned mechanic
>>
Hell yeah. I could play them forever... that's the problem.
>>
>>5648640
have you ever learned how to do it though? bunny hopping i find very satisfying, every single time i open quake i spend a good 20 minutes just fucking hopping around the starting area i find it so fun
>>
>>5648640
git gud

Yep. Fatal1ty called me the most naturally gifted player he's ever seen, but then I found Evercrack and got addicted
>>
>>5648251
I'd love to play but at least half of the "great" players on DarkFiber's FFA server are injecting shit. Only when the people with perfect aim show up does it start experiencing latency issues. When they aren't around I still enjoy the game from time to time
>>
>>5649083
I'd love to play regularly*
>>
>>5649083
you know i never really consider the idea that there are cheaters on quake live. ive seen literally ONE and he was playing around with plasma gun. i used to feel like people played quake for fun but when i play quake live now im not really having very much fun. i mean hell you couldn't really cheat in quake 3 because of how much items mattered, a cheater would just get their asses slammed even with 100 percent mg accuracy but players spawn with all weapons now and clan arena is the most popular gametype. movement is still important though and a lot of movement is reliant on your mouse input so maybe thats just being overly suspicious. i dont know how viable it would be to cheat at all even if you never unequip the railgun
>>
>>5649113
It's subtle there. Quake Live experiences performance issue when someone is injecting something. That and going 50-5 on a map like Asylum with 16/32+ and insta-respawning weapons players is sketchy as all hell. Like I said, any other server and there's no issue. Hell, on DarkFiber's other servers there's no issues. Only on that particular server when a particular group of people are on. Speccing also gives a good indicator as well when someone is perfectly tracking another player through the wall they just turned.

>in quake live, the game with the railgun
i just dont understand how people could possibly find this fun, on a map like dreadworks maybe
>>
>>5649136
Not spawn with all the weapons, the weapons spawn time is immediate. You still gotta go get them. Does that make sense? Still, I agree it is utter AIDs when there are 3 annoying shitties spamming the GL and RG on Campgrounds with fuck all to stop them when there's 15 other people. That server made me a staunch believer that Longest Yard is not only the worst map in Quake 3/Live but 1 of the worst maps and vidya period.

It's a matter of finding the right times to play on.
>>
>>5649151
you said it, FUCK longest yard. my friend used to refuse to duel unless it was on longest yard and only because it was essential clan arena as soon as you got the rail gun
though if were counting quake 3 maps as well i have to throw tourney3 and dm19 as contenders for the godawful cup. meanwhile people really shit on space chamber but i really like it

I heard someone was in here talking shit about unintended gameplay mechanics like I wouldn't find out.
>>
>>5649083
Maybe I haven't played there enough but I've never seen anyone blatantly botting, I always figured the twitch bot scared them off.
A couple people I'm 90% sure are walling though. Either that or they're coked out enough in fucking FFA to rail you when you have half your head visible for an instant in a location you have no reason to be in.
>>5649176
dm17 is secret top tier if you play it with friends and go rockets only.
>>
>>5649704
>Twitch bot
Yeah but who exactly is watching the DarkFiber twitch channel? Nobody. Who's gonna stop them despite them playing there forever? Nobody. Hell, I'm pretty sure 1 of their badmins is running something so the point is moot
>>
>>5648251
Not a lot, I prefer Quake 1's single player. I was never huge on multiplayer overall.

It's too bad that Quake Live is the only "working" one with server browser. I would even play Quake Champions if it had server browser and "features" like fast menus, and continuing game with map rotation. It's a fucking joke what developers deliver today.
>>
>>5650423
Quake Live is much better than Quake Champions.
>>
>>5650828
Nobody likes you either.

>>5650423
I play on the Q2 tastyspleen server sometimes, half the people are fucking around with gumby skins and will play the goofy mod servers with you if you use the wallfly.
Q3A FFA is just as sweaty as QL except it's full of 1400 elo psycho boomers that melt down in chat, duel you and ragequit because of your obvious leethax 35% railgun accuracy.

I agree. Mindlessly spamming jump and learning the exact way to wiggle your mouse around is dumb. If the devs wanted to increase the skill ceiling they would have everyone already move at a faster pace or change how weapons worked. Meta skills not explicitly stated or taught in gaming are what kill genres. Arena shooters, RTS, Fighting games, and MOBAs all suffer from this.

I play QC every day.
God, I wanted it to be good. Fuck Bethesda and fuck ThinkError.

Holy shit, the level of retardation it would take to write this post fucking mindblowing. "learning the exact way to wiggle your mouse around", are you fucking braindead? What is football, learning the exact way to wiggle your legs? Everyone in this thread is now dumber from reading that trainwreck.

i think i saw what you mean first hand, on the exact same ffa darkfiber server im assuming you were on even. im not sure who was cheating as it started midgame and i won anyways but the lag definitely started to piss me off since it was a close game. what a fag though, do you have any suspicions on who it might be? i definitely want to play more on that server as instant respawning weapons is at least reasonable with so many players and its been fucking fun but i want to know what to look for and who to NAMEDROP
