Hell, I could write a matchmaking system in PHP that cross-references the Data from maxstats and puts the users in skillgroups
because random joe will try the game for couple of weeks, still get owned hard and quit
If I remember right, Sync said that id had a goal it wanted to reach so the game was more presentable before they sent out invites. Invites just went out.
You mean to tell me that a PROFESSIONAL company that pays MULTIPLE people to do work
i hope this doesn't break the NDA.. otherwise i'll edit if told so
That's funny, I got an invite that was not referred by a player.
im starting to regret i gave you that invite..
And how q4 gameplay can be bad if it's basically q3 + crouch sliding ?
Let's say that with your reasoning, nothing can evolve, nothing can change. We should all play World Of Warcraft or The Sims like sheeps and say everywhere that it's the best games ever because it has been well sold.
Also, you seems like a very pessimistic person
Ahahaha. Sure, D3 was an epic failure. Rofl, ETQW is an epic failure too...
Sure, quake is dying because it's not as popular as WoW. Also, no ones play it anymore, I agree. There are no more online tournaments, lan tourney etc... ESR doesn't exist anymore. Warsow's gameplay is based on Halo's one.
I think that if you say that q3's gameplay is good, the majority will agree, right ? :-P
I know that the community is rather small (in comparison to CS etc) but still there is enough activity to keep the games (quake series + warsow) alive.
The fact is that you try to be realist but you're almost completely wrong.
I just play the game I like and with an as good as possible gameplay for competitive play.
Warsow isn't perfect, neither is quake, but they are still better than games like battlefield or whatever when you speak about "e-Sport".
You have no more arguments so you say that I'm stupid. Ez.
Doom 3 was a success, if you compare to the others single player FPS on the market
Sure, same weapons, same straff-jumping, same items, but they play nothing alike... And yeah, toxic, fox, fatality, av3k, cypher cooller etc are/were so bad at q4 because it's so different than q3.
Do you, sometimes, take a look at the ESR news, or demos section ? Do you know ESWC ? Do you know warsow's forum (with its cups & stuff) ? Do you know http://www.quakeworld.nu/ ?
Do you know http://q2scene.net/scene/ ? etc
At least I try to explain to you why you are wrong and not only by saying things like "you're stupid", "Unfounded optimism!" etc...
It's like football. I have fun watching "pros" playing, I have fun playing on pubs (yeah) and doing some pcw. All that stuff.
And again, pls, don't say each time that it's a matter of opinion or majority when you lack of arguments.
Also, I could write you a book on why cpm/warsow/qw are the FAST-fps events like ESWC needs.
You're not serious, aren't you ?
It's in french, but you just need to know that : 3M games sold back to march 2007. Doom 3 was the biggest succes of ID.
