Q3 is still wildly more popular.
t is irrelevant why or how, or IF its statistics are wrong.
I said is that Xfire is IRRELEVANT in light of ones ability to directly OBSERVE the activity of each game from the SOURCE of any possible data bout the activity of the game.
There is NO conflict in all of the data observed and the fact that QuakeLive is much more popular than Quake 3.
There is NO third party observation of QuakeLive.
I never argued against that. You've obviously been arguing the wrong point this entire time. You could have saved a lot of time by reading.
Proof that it's bigger than Q3?
Obviously, this is what I'm providing. Why are you ignoring it?
There is absolutely ZERO relation between website search trends and game popularity.
Feel free to scroll up yourself and eat your own foot, because you are the one who claimed Q3 was wildly more popular than QL.
The data I'm providing is not faulty. It is universal, and everyone in the community has to deal with it.
The website trends OR hits, or anything website, have ZERO relation to the actual game usage. I thought that was obvious.
You sure did claim that Quake 3 is wildly more popular than QuakeLive. So I guess you are the one who keep chewing feet around here.
The data is universally correct. Seems like you don't understand what 'universal' means in this context, which is that it is the same for everyone who measures it, and there is no way around it, for anyone.
All I keep showing is that QL is wildly more popular thank Quake 3 using the most authentic and direct measurement.
Q3 is still vastly less popular than the illegal server community or any community because it is no community. Congrats on humiliating yourself.
You are the one who said that Q3 is vastly more popular than QuakeLive.
I've been arguing the same point and points the entire time
Now, it might be very hard for you to admit this very fact, but according to the most pure data, directly observable in any Quake 3 server browser, which is what any Q3 community, if it existed, would have to rely on, virtually no one plays Quake 3.
Yes, and actually, current "underground" QL community who play mostly on illegal servers (because of ping) is quite large (bigger than Q3) and they aren't going to Q3 at all.
This an argument of QL against Q3
Too bad you're not aware how everyone else is aware, and can play with a tool like Qtracker, using third party master servers as they have for many years!
If you are not using third party server lists, you are not using third party server lists.
1v1/TDM are both the vast minority in QL, too. Q3 is still wildly more popular.
but isn't BLC as dead as Quake?
QL just happens to be a good comparison. The truth hurts, it seems.
so you basically earn them by playing a lot.
They make your bloodline more unique and alow for a more personal playstyle, but I guess you simply don't understand that...
