...it would suck to want to play Quake, but you lived in an area of the world like South Africa or S. Korea that only have ONE server location and such a small amount of players that finding an opponent would take forever.

I find that thinking about this would make people more grateful for their situation and appreciative of id, even if they haven't done well with QL, and makes things like complaining about ping seem very petty and entitled.

there's not much point to this thread other than to maybe try to get people to look on the bright side of things and enjoy quake while it lasts, since for some people it's pretty much already over.
