Okay, things are cooling down again

I still would like to urge everyone to visit the UK server sometimes

Vogon is completely worth your time, energy and money! (please donate generously)

None taken Jimb... personally, I don't even like the map!


Yeah but that's just because I destroyed you on that map. Remember, I was like "I'm going to make you regret ever designing that map..." and then you laughed but then I did it for real?

Hear, hear.

Is this not the House of Commons jimbo?

Hear, hear.!


I agree too. Settings I'd personally like to try:
No -1 when fragged, increase speed/fire rate back up to vogon's crazy levels, picking up power ups/weapons/ammo etc and no start with rail, just MG... would be nifty.

Actually, I'd love to start off with an LG w/spalsh damage, but I'm sure that wouldn't go over well with people like craij and kitty. (but then again, maybe that's the apeal for me)

We will sync settings with UK server. Diff settings are possible, of course, but for the time being we will use same settings on both servers, at least for a week or two.

Right now Q3 globally has most players in EU, then USA, then Latin America. Worst is Asia and Africa, only exception are Australia and India with a few more players there. So in effect, if you have 2 servers with similar settings, one in UK and another in US, there will be less players @ US server and more @ UK.

Reason is, Q3 has much less players than you can see in various browsers -- most of them are bots (over 60%!) and literally 1/3 of all servers are running UT4 mod which is not even Q3 anymore, it's a standalone game with CS-like gameplay. When you see 900+ players on 1800+ servers think about 250 players on 100 servers, at peak times, worldwide.

Best thing for Q3 right now would be filtering out all the UT4 CRAP and all those 1-day-wonder temporary servers (when someone hosts a game) should be listed below regular servers, at least those which are up for a few weeks or more. That way people would be able to find best servers quickly, instead of seeing all the crap randomized. I suggested this to id Software, but only response i got was how UT4 is a mod (...) and generally they don't care about Q3 much. They also plan to use this QL/MW2 biz model where there is no dedicated server option, only hosted ones and there won't be any mods for Prey either. Not that i count on that game to bring anything interesting regarding deathmatch, but it clearly shows they lost their touch and forgot what made DOOM and Q1 successful -- user-made maps, servers and mods.

:fuckoff:
You kids and your lightsabers (read: LG). It's like watching Star Wars, the Clone Wars.

Dyn, could you make a version where everyone else has LG except me (give me hook so I just hang out on the ceiling and watch the kiddies aimlessly swing those things around)?

Welcome back Flip.

Dyn, would this be the "+button5" hook?

Gum, are you showing your winning hand in "Rock, Paper, Scissors" in that avatar photo?

Not off-hand like in CTF, rather - enabling "weapon 10" and having to click Fire to use it.
