Posted by obi @ 20:59 CDT, 22 September 2014 - iMsg
A lot of people ask what will be different from CPMA, and the developers have said they are using CPMA as a base only and they expect things to change. Here's some random ideas:

- less air control (but more than Quake Live)

- "curved" rockets which maintain some kind of momentum after they are fired (something like this

- have the railgun start charging after being equipped. it can be fired at any time but for less damage. full charge time would be equal to current delay between shots.

- infinite range on the lg, but with significant damage fall off

- grenades which explode after a certain amount of bounces (for example, on the third bounce)

- ability to shoot opponents rockets/projectiles. god this would own.

- cyclic teleporters, so if you chase an opponent through them you arrive at a different location

- decide duels by damage done, not counting damage absorbed by armour

(Yes I know a lot of these are probably retarded, whatever). Anyone got any ideas?

Adding other Quakes to Quakelive (1 comment)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 13:01 CDT, 22 September 2014 - iMsg
Seeing my initiative to create a community based portal for quake4 didnt got much attention, i got another idea for achieving the same goal in a different way.

id could integrate in a not distant future a quake4 option in quakelive. And maybe in the future, if it ever becomes released, quake5??? You utilize the same friends, chat, portal etc that you have running.

Do you think any of these Steamers would spend $5 or so to unlock the bloody gibs?

Maybe id could make a quick few bucks from these guys before they run away because id did absolutely nothing to separate them from us.

Valid idea or no? Not sure how many would purchase. Actually I probably would just so I could turn them on for FFA while I rape all these newbs.

Why I left Quake Live from tier 4 (44 comments)
Posted by kjojo @ 17:32 CDT, 21 September 2014 - iMsg
I love Quake series, and I wanted to love Quake Live, but I left after four months.

Here's why. Maybe it will serve somebody who has a hand in development.

There are two major issues I see. First, training enviroment is not provided. Second, cheaters are allowed.

For a game that touts itself as a game of skill, with huge skill span from noob to pro, it's absurd that players don't have training enviroment.

I can think of at least 15 types of training modules which would speed up my skill development. And I would enjoy to train them all, as I enjoy "training" with bots, concentrating on one part of my game, getting comfortable and then seeing how my training pays off in live matches. By the way, current option to play with bots is not training, it's best-alternative-to-none training.

Of course, not all QL players would train. But many of those who are serious about the game probably would.

I started as noob and during four months got to lower tier 4, with between 90 and 100 skill rating. I don't know if that's good or bad, but I know that if QL wants me to play in tier 4, with people who are multiple times better than me, I at least expect to be provided with training enviroment.

Without it, I am there just to provide frag counts to others.

There is no serious basketball or football team, no golf or tennis player, that just plays live games. They all train. QL is a game of wide skill span, and I expect that I can train it properly. I have other things to do in my life than to invest months on end or years getting wiped, without fair option to train, so that someday I'll maybe get to the enjoyable high playing level in QL.

On the other hand, what QL lacks in training enviroment it gives in cheaters.

As I see it, I give QL my passion and time, and for that QL rewards me with cheaters. Instead of enjoying conquering the game as hard as it is, I also have to think if there is a cheater on server, who takes shortcuts and undermines my effort.

There are people in this world who made satellites and shoot them to space to orbit around the earth. I don't think making QL cheat-proof is harder than rocket science. I think that there is a reason why QL is made in a way that it allows cheating. I don't care what that reason is, because whatever it is, I see it as "f*** you' to regular players.

Anyway, enough from me. As Jim Carrey said at the end of The Truman Show: "In case I don't see you... good afternoon, good evening, and good night".

So Steam happened, result is lag (6 comments)
Posted by thizito @ 15:03 CDT, 21 September 2014 - iMsg
We are from Brazil, where we have to PAY to host a server.
The steam was a sucess here, servers are all full(or mostly)

the problem is, our host is not supporting SA players.

the new players are experiencing warp/lag/bad server connection

is that what ID wants ?

Why not pay the server for us with high quality?

We already hardly pay a quantity, making it higher for get quality will be risky..

Seriously, you win something with Steam, the players
But if i am new, i would be sad with this servers, is our fault or id fault ?

Sorry for english, i try my best

How to beat the QuakeLive cheats? (143 comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 14:47 CDT, 21 September 2014 - iMsg
Main question is, what are the cheats out there, that are known? post them, NO links or specific names please, just what they do.

Why post them?

I hear this a load about cheaters, yes or no, some true claims some false. Many lesser skilled starter noob's (not their fault not to know yet) just think that someone who hits a direct rocket is a cheat. But does not understanding the 100 dmg it delivers directly.

Some even think fov, or increasing sound levels is a cheat. So there are different terms for cheating. But overall hacking of anything other than "non-standard game tweaks", is not good.

How to overcome this?

ID has done a good thing.
"Intentionally or not", the introduction of timers to items, and the dmg plums, are actually eliminating the power of the cheaters, or making it harder for them. So good job tbh ID.

I touched on this on another thread, but with ID not able to stop modernisation of the hacking / cheating community, so why not eliminate it by adding some of them as feature of some sort.

Prevention is better than cure.
Punkbuster does obviously not work properly enough. So what are the cheats?

The more we know about what cheats to look out for the better the game can actually be. And be more cheat proof. Only the Aimbot stuff will be hardest to look out for, but then ID have that capability to eradicate most.

With the

Wallhack for e.g.

"If you can't beat them, join them!" In this case, if you can't eliminate them, integrate it so that everyone is on an even keel. result :)

feedback welcome

Demo Tools for Steam Quake (1 comment)
Posted by VinuJ @ 14:18 CDT, 21 September 2014 - iMsg
Anyone know of anything like wolfcam/wolf whispere/ quakelive demo tools, that actually work properly seeming as firstly the demo file types have changed to .dm90 and the fact that it is now mainly on steam (I don't think this would affect anything to do with demos)

So if anyone has any info on any upcoming, or already released demo tools for the new dm90 demo type it would be very helpful.

Feel free to discuss other things about demo tools as well I guess :P

we need tourneys (5 comments)
Posted by issy @ 18:25 CDT, 20 September 2014 - iMsg
hello friends, since we have a huge burst of new players, i'd suggest to make a couple of torneys even with new rule set, with a bit of prize money, for all of the gamemodes. Would be great to divide those tourneys by some skill level, so the new players can participate too. For example next weekend, advertise those tourneys everywhere here and on steam, so ppl could see that there is a competitive side of the game. Since there are no matchmaking, it will be hard for them to stick to the game for long enough, and this weekend tourneys can provide the reason. Meanwhile great guys like sponge and sync will think about matchmaking, or at least will implement directly in to the game elo based system made by great guy sirax and co. Because this little +10 -10 elo after the game, is a really great thing, and makes new and old players srtive to get better. Well first tourneys, then everything else. Its the last chance for guys at id to advertise your game and get new players, and make'em stick to it, so plz dont blow this chanse.

P.S. Sorry for crappy english, im from Potato.

QuakeLive constructive poll (No comments)
Posted by p3l3.dynodeath @ 05:45 CDT, 20 September 2014 - iMsg
Wanted to create a poll to get some other feedback, but not sure if I can. Anyway, from this poll in 2012 with 268 votes and 12,010 hits, what would the consensus be at this time?

Taken from:


I/we have loved all quake games, and supported them as much as I/we can, with constructive feedback, unfortunately like most, a large proportion of balance was not listened to. There have been some good changes down the years, and some bad ones. Some you can live with some you can't.

The transparency of some of the decisions do not seem logical, or identified / reasoned / notified to our, living / revenue generating, supportive! community. However, if they are for the good for the game with transparency given, and are for the bigger picture (unknown and unfathomable to us), and therefore will work, that is fine. HOWEVER>

Would be interesting to see the responses from new joiners to the game, and existing players responses to changes or to just the new overall play, at this current time of steam release.

will the polls shift.

In addition, the project is providing some very intriguing pledge reward tiers, ranging from a copy of the game to custom player and weapon models of your choice. Head over to the Reflex Kickstarter page now, and help the project reach it's goal.

Damage numbers and (91 comments)
Posted by garz @ 23:04 CDT, 19 September 2014 - iMsg
Did anyone complain about the damage numbers already? They should be disabled in duel, shouldnt they? And also they should disable the tiered hit sounds in duel. Now that there is this classic mode which is for not-noobs as far as i understood this. So it should be possible to adjust this classic mode without caring for noobs, right? So how about longer weapon respawn times of lets say 10 seconds for 10 minute timelimit. As it was 15 seconds for 15 minutes. Those numbers are magically equal which must make sense, i guess, but i didnt study mathematics.

But if all of the latter isnt done, at least please disable the damage numbers.

Another think is, i cant vote maps on public duel servers anymore. What is that about? I am premium, not pro, so i cant spawn stuff which was always fine for me because there were the public servers. So whats the deal with that. I dont want to play on those player servers because they are already occupied! Most of the time.

Who am i talking to anyway? :D Should i post that in the QL forums or what? I dont know, just disable those damage numbers, you who can do this, you know, i mean you. And i want to be able to vote maps again, plz #2.

Pro-Sub get's banned from Id forum (22 comments)
Posted by Norsak @ 17:33 CDT, 19 September 2014 - iMsg
Well it's official, Id software does not give a rats ass about it's paying customers.

I have a Pro subscription and have been playing Quake since the first edition back in the 90s.
Like many other veteran players, I am extremely disappointed in the recent updates, as they made the game basically un-playable.

Since I can no longer play the game, I started spending more time on the Forum. Where (ever since I emailed support asking for a refund) I was continuously awarded "infractions" for stating opinions which run counter to the direction Id has chosen.

Today I apparently was Banned from the official QL forum (indefinitely no less) without even an accompanying email.

I guess that means that my money is good enough for them, but I'm supposed to keep my criticism and suggestions to myself.

I played this guy who told me he was "so good" with CS:GO and that it was his first QL game. I asked him a few questions like do you know how to time the items etc etc. We were also on Aero, and I was telling him how that map is not really friendly for new players. He said "screw it let's go".

Within 2 min he said "man this game fucking sucks and quit" after calling me a hacker multiple times.

id, steam, bethesda whoever the fuck runs this game now. Here is really what needs to be implemented so ignorant noobs realize they just suck instead of blaming people as hackers..

Add in some kind of anti hack system so these noobs realize we aren't hacking. I feel like the big misconception is that new players don't think there are any of these programs are embedded in QL and therefore everyone just hacks.

The kid just kept going on and on about "how the fuck do you always know where to shoot?!" "How do you always know where I am?!" "This is BS because QL doesn't have VCS(or whatever the hell he was saying).

This community is not going to grow if new players only play once and think that everyone is a hacker. So do something about it!

Has anyone else been randomly banned? (14 comments)
Posted by yu_raider @ 10:55 CDT, 18 September 2014 - iMsg
I logged in 2 days ago, played 3 duels of which I've lost 2 and after the Steam integration I've been banned.
Has this happened to anyone else? If so is there a support e-mail or something (clicking Support on the site does nothing)?

Should I even bother with contacting them?


Thank you everyone for your help. I have contacted them and my issue has been resolved by iD Software in a matter of minutes.

Casual Game modes for reflex (13 comments)
Posted by Shin-obi @ 23:15 CDT, 17 September 2014 - iMsg
Well, it looks like adding your game to steam isn't a guarantee that a large mass of noobs will come(ql), so reflex is going to have to be very proactive if it wants to attract fresh meat.

If you have any original ideas for casual game modes, post them here
And post which existing casual modes/mods you want to see added to reflex

here's my list so far
1) basketball game mode(always wanted to play one in a "quake" game)
2 ) capturestrike with some changes to make it more skillful and less campy
3) action quake 2 mode(never played it, but it looks like it could be a lot of fun in reflex)
4) lithium quake 2 mode(had a blast with this. i think noobs from today would still enjoy it)

From Bliccer - So! Here I am again. That was a short break. The reason why I am back is. I found all my old demos from 2004 until now. And I thought hey, I'm creating a movie for another person, so why not do yourself a favor and invest some time into your own wasting of time for a decade. Don't get me wrong, not every minute was a waste but I already wrote something about this last time.

Some dirty self-promotion (click the CC button for english subtitles).

(FEMALE ONLY) QL DUEL CUP (85 comments)
Posted by MichPGG @ 15:59 CDT, 17 September 2014 - iMsg
Just registered to share this idea - I was quite astonished, how much time some ladies put into quake and perticularly duel, so I think it would be nice to see them ripping each others skirt in the arena ;-)

No seriously, I think girls would deserve such a tournament and would even donate $10 or so for a price.

The question is how to stop Agent etc. to join the tournament, smashing them and stealing the 1st price? ^^ What do you guys think, would you support such idea?

Quake4 + community made portal / servers (26 comments)
Posted by gSTRUCTOR @ 09:02 CDT, 17 September 2014 - iMsg
Hi guys, im kind of nervous with all the recent changes, normally im a total fanboy who tries to keep playing no matter whatever happens, but some of the latest changes are making my fanboy side transform into a hater, and i dont want to hate.

Quake4 is a damn fine game and has much better gfx than QL which is a good point for possible newcomers. And we know that they wont be releasing crappy patches anytime soon.

Also its been like 6 years since QL started, one of the main reasons why id chose quake3 was that at that time it could run in most PCs, i would say that 6 years later Q4 could run in most PCs too.

id is clearly shitting on the hardcore fanbase with the recent forced changes, the VO being something that totally ruins my experience, instead of playing a hardcore game i feel im babysitting robots, fuck that.

So why not we, the hardcore fans, make something about it? I know it would be a lot of work and we would need to raise some money, the idea being creating a community portal similar to the QL one, were we could add friends, browse servers according to location, etc.

I think it would be worth the effort, mainly because we can be completely sure id wont be able to do shit about it. Q4max development could be resumed to accomodate possible bugfixes etc, new maps could be made without having to pass id software approval, we would have more freedom again!

I know it may sound crazy, but a 1000 miles journey starts with one step.

Don't you just love ordering a new part for your PC? Especially when the particular part is one you can't find locally, and is part of your new machine you were making to stream your upcoming tournament. The only thing that's better than that is when that particular part keeps coming to you D.O.A. and you get send it back with R.M.A. ... twice. Oh man I absolutely "love" when this happens! So..

Anyone want to help stream the N.A. Duelcup event? No casting required.

I am being told my part will be here on Friday (just in time) but I do not want to risk it. I'm looking for someone with a good rig that can stream Quakelive at 60fps(preferred not required) that I can give server information and passwords to. You would be labeled as the official streamer (label is so people don't /kick you). No need to get on camera or say a single word. Since I have been unable to find a caster for three months now my back up plan was to have the stream up on one PC and admin from another. So don't feel like you need to be a personality or announce anything while streaming. Its purely for the game footage =)

Please get in touch on the forum, in game, or irc
#duelcup if you can help me out. Thank you!
