funny that *you* of all people, king quake, would be making accusations like that.
if you don't have a demo, you don't have a case.

Either way no big deal. I don't feel comfortable being attacked without cause.

Thank you for the reply. I'm not leaving Q3 in anger though. I think I am trying to overcome my addiction (lol). I figure the best way is to just give it up period.
As far as the cheating thing goes, all I can say (again) is I HAVE NEVER CHEATED. I totally understand how people can believe that someone who wins by a large margin may be cheating. Hell, it's usually my first thought as well. But that has to be tempered with a reality check. I mean if the guy has a really low ping (20) and any experience, and is happy to spam (lol) he is probably going to do well. Like the rest of you, if I get beat, my first thought is "is this guy cheating", but usually thats it - it's just a thought. If that person has a low ping and seems to know what he's doing then I will accept he is simply better than I am (at least for that day). I usually attribute a lot of this sort of thing to the ISP or the server; ie my connection just isn't as good for whatever reason. Of course if someone can tweak their config then that is going to help them as well. For me. apart from adding color to my name, I don't do much more with the config (except the standard things like FOV/Snaps/FPS etc).
I do have to say though, that when I am being beat by a +150 ping playing from nowhere Russia,I am extremely suspicious. But as stated,I have no proof. But, like all, I am entitled to my suspicion. I don't think that's a crime?
Anyway apart from the odd run in with some present and past Admins on Vogon, this has been a very enjoyable and rewarding experience. I have nothing but Cudo's for the organization shown on this site (Forum and Game Server Setup). The fact that Vogon is still alive and well speaks volumes about how well this excessive format has been developed.
Thanks again and all the best.
