Do some of the well known pro quakelive mappers still make new maps for quakelive?

Elan's config (2 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 19:00 CST, 31 January 2016 - iMsg
Elan was a pro quake 3 dueler back in the 2000-2001 era. Does anyone here have his config by any chance? It used to be on cyberfight.org. I remember he used to have different fovs for different weapons. I'd like to try it out again if anyone has it. Thanks.

Many consider them two of the worst mass murderers. Who do you personally think was worse during his reign?

What in your view makes cypher so great? (135 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 16:19 CDT, 13 April 2015 - iMsg
Looking at how many tournaments he's won, in your view what made Cypher so great at Quake for many years? How would you describe the way he play, and what about this makes him do so well?

Thanks

Do you think this weapon is too spammy and should be removed in future quake games?

Modern Id software and the arena FPS (21 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 02:00 CDT, 12 April 2015 - iMsg
Why doesn't Id at the very least try to make a new Arena fps game? They've been coasting off quake 3 for 15 years now. I know on these parts that quake 3 is held in a high light, but why not try to replicate a arena fps like they did for quake 3? Do they raelly need to include a single player in a project like this? WOuld it raelly cost Id software that much in reousrces, and say, get about 15-20 people and try to make a successor to quake 3?

What is it going to take to make the arena fps relevant again? Because quake live is obviously not the answer.

Do you think video game consoles in their current form will be obsoleted, say, in 5-10 years?

Was Quake 3 ever really that big? (44 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 16:44 CDT, 9 March 2015 - iMsg
This was said even by John Carmack (trying to find the youtube video, it was Id's weakest selling post Doom game) but quake 3 wasn't really ever that big. It didn't crack a million copies (the older games sold much better, Quake 2 outsold all the other Id games until Doom 3, confirmed by Tim Willits here at 40:40 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R8teXxWXn_M ) and regardless what many think of post quake 3 Id, Doom 3 was and still is the best selling Id game at over 3.5 million copies, as stated here: http://web.archive.org/web/20080705061409/htt...ck_emmys.x

Just wondering, but why do you think Quake 3 was kind of a flop compared to previous Id games?

old maps should be removed from duel (47 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 14:10 CST, 3 March 2015 - iMsg
Some people have said that there isn't many new players having good results in duel tournaments. I would like to see any map that is over 10 years old be done away with in all future quakelive tournaments. In fact, I think really any map over 5 years old should be removed from duel.


THis is going to mean tossing out maps like lost word, blood run and toxicity. I really think new maps should replace these. Anyone else think it's unfair to newer players to have to face against veterans that have played these maps for more then a decade?

I'd like to see the results of something like this. Just completely hit the reboot on all maps except those that are only a couple years old.

Can anyone be a pro? (56 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 09:59 CST, 13 December 2014 - iMsg
I remember awhile back watching and interview with John Carmac and he mentioned that not everyone can become a pro player. And that some players are just hardwired with this ability.

Do you agree with that? Or would someone that spends enough time and is dedicated enough be able to compete at a high level?

How much does config affect playstyles? (13 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 22:43 CST, 6 December 2014 - iMsg
In terms of where everything is binded to sensitivity or accel settings... do you think this has a big impact on the way a player plays the game? Meaning their overall playstyle?

early 2000-2001 era cypher demos? (24 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 19:47 CDT, 2 August 2014 - iMsg
Do any demos of cypher exist from this era? I know he has said on a few occasions that the match between cooller and zero at WCG 2002 was the reason he decided he wanted to go pro. Was wondering if there were any early era demos of him?

what's so different about asians? (113 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 17:29 CDT, 2 August 2014 - iMsg
In many esports games some like to say asians are the best. I've even heard some say that if asians took competitive fps seriously that they would be on top like they are in other esports genres.

I don't like the term "natural" talent or just "born" that way. What do you think it is about asian esport players that make them as good as they are?

aging players a myth to a degree? (118 comments)
Posted by crunkus @ 08:19 CDT, 29 July 2014 - iMsg
It used to be said that players like Zero4, avek, Cooller and Cypher, and even Rapha were at their peak when they were very young. I believe Zero4, Avek, Cypher and Coolller were 16 year olds when they hit the world stage and 'won' tournaments.

I think even people in their early 30s can compete and have great aim. Toxic is 30 now and hits 55 percent lg. Rapha and Cyher are in their mid twenties and have amazing aim, possibly better then they ever have. Even fatali1ty in my view when watching his recent twitch quake videos aims much better then when he was 19-20 years old and he's 33 now.

What is your opinion? Do you think their is a peak in terms of age when someone really starts to slow down and can't compete anymore?

Do you think we have that much farther to go in terms of strategy, aim and whatnot before quakelive at the tournament level is nearly perfected?
