why you call it q3 comback when its more like cpma?
They got loads of money that can be potentially invested
Big companies have it easier, because they will instantly get newsposts and reach thousands of people.
I don't know, actually. QL has a number of very significant improvements over Q3. Raw mouse being one of them.
CPMA, as great as it is, is difficult for newbies to get in to. Downloading .pk3s, modding, configging, mousefixes, irc...
With the thousands of maps, gamemode alterations, custom skins, the majority of them are not used competitively*
Also, don't start with "Mind=blown" comments. It shouldn't take much common sense to realise that having everything that is relevant in one spot is a far better approach, rather than making the user piece the game together from 4 different IKEA chains just to get in a server, no matter how oldschool you are.
Most importantly, why would a newbie spend $20 on buying Quake3 when they can go to quakelive.com for free and/or get a pro/premium account there where it's clearly ALOT more active?
As you all know, Q3 is infinitely better than QL in every way
going backwards isn't going to do a damn thing because not enough people will follow you. we need a new game to make quake grow.
its a free world, and i can like or dislike whatever i want.
so maybe shut the fuck up, you close minded twat
Disliking something youve never experienced is plain dumb
well, i guess its nice feature for tdm, but on the other hand - its a fucking 4 times mroe distraction than multi view in duel
Shit son, u r dump
I am fed up with how ID handled Q3's successor (QL) and would like to start a project to bring back Q3. As you all know, Q3 is infinitely better than QL in every way.
crappy weapon balance
If we can capture this, then we can rid ourselves of ID's hold over the community once and for all.
What's the problem with 24 $$ per year to get new stuff, possibly more competitive action etc..?
the new core maps have been locked out because no one played on premium servers.
There might be more people trying to play CPMA trough quake live with PQL settings servers than on actual CPMA client.
As I said I would enjoy playing, but, that installation process is just frustating, me , and all the people, want just a client (even web client) that we can download, install and jump right into the game.
and I don't mind putting towards $$$ if there is enough interest.
Also, don't forget that if we have something centralized, decisions will have to be made at one point or another that won't satisfy everyone as it will be the same for everyone. Without a strong central authority, like id is with QL, that can lead to big problems.
removed all the problems from actually playing quake
i experienced the awesomeness that was q3 aswell as the problems. maybe you should acknowledge the awesomeness that ql has brought to the table so you might understand the issues that you're going to face with a project like this better.
if it wasn't for quakelive i feel like quake would be nowhere right now. what do you think?
you talk about golden times but q3 was dying long before the arrival of ql so infact it revived the game if anything.
how will remaking the same game persuade people to create the golden times mk 2? it didn't work for ql so why would it work this time? i agree with you that ql hasnt had enough promotion but how would YOU change this?
