There has probably been tons of posts like this before but I'm feeling spammy and there's a blizzard out there so I'll expose you hapless people to my drivel.
Lately, I've found myself playing ql quite a lot, and while being honest, it's not my preferred iteration of q3 and it is weirdly lacking in elementary competitive features and there are serious balance issues, it's still tons of fun. At least for a semi-blasé person like myself, you can't beat the sheer easiness of just simply logging in and playing a couple of rounds of tdm. Dm14 is still a blast, 2-pu maps ftw! another nice thing is playing with people I haven't seen in years and noticing they still decimate you on dm6 :D
Then to the whine part, sensible suggestions do not seem to last very long in the ql forum, due to the large amount of people posting there.
(Not that the newer or more off-the-wall posters would in the end be that much stupider than you or me. I've seen many new players who are actively learning the ropes so the last thing ql needs is a bunch of people like you and me nursing their false sense of superiority from their basement Führer bunkers.)
-Fix the shotgun, It's ridiculous the way it is now
-Get rid of the TA runes, extra weapons and ctf maps
-What happened to the contacting map makers project, impulse said that they were contacted and most were enthusiastic, SyncError?
