Quake is distinct because no other game is as fast. It's the F-1 racing of the first-person shooter genre. ... We see a long, healthy road with this game, and we're taking this very seriously as an esport.- Matt Charles, senior producer at id Software for Quake Champion
If you could change or add one thing to Quake LIVE, what would that be?
200dmg to rail and shaft at 10-10-10 J.
Jokes aside, I like Quake Live right now already. I would add all the OSP/CPMA features for players like better in-game stats, GTV, coach slot and so forth. I would add things on the website that gives the possibility for teams to create their own page, adding players, stats for their clanwars and all these little things that will DEFINITELY help the game grow and the community.
Ohhh I love you rail! For me this hitscan weapon is one of the most skilled weapons to use in the game. Luckily for a lot of people, but maybe not accepted by most, in Quake Live it`s easier to hit with it. As a matter of fact, probably most of the people can hit at least over 40% right now. I have been mastering this weapon for years and use it in so many different ways and situations. Just so you know, I ZOOM ALOT. You don't see it from my demos or videos, but I shoot with railgun with my zoom ON 90% of the times. I use it from medium and long range, as well as in the air. There are so many ways to aim with it, and it`s not as easy as you may think. I have half of my arm on the desk/mousepad while I play, this lets me move and aim in different ways depending on the weapon or situation. With this weapon for example, I aim while moving mostly with my arm with smooth and slow movements, but I also use my wrist for small flick shots especially from medium range or floor positions. You will never see me doing crazy flickshots if I have the enemy in front of me, I believe it`s not accurate even if it might work sometimes. When you gain a certain experience and aim with it, you will be able to take advantages even in bad positions and let people take armors/mega and taking it away instantly, to then get in a better position or in control of the map for the next battle.
