    Yeah, I've played Quake Live.
    Pretty awesome with quake 3 arena with lots of players and free, too bad you can't put it in steam :/

    Not sure, but I heard it's ad-based, Haven't seen a single ad though.

    Heh, played this way back, ran great, but I lost interest because I just find quake pretty damn straight forward and boring :X

    Not yet, as you can't create own servers yet.

    All servers are hosted by quake live I think.

    no weapon in the game is an instant kill with 100% hp..

    Even the bullshit BFG gun takes 2-3 to kill.

    What? Isn't there a sniper rifle that 1 hit kills? I like it a lot but I don't get the part on why it will help you with every FPS you will ever play.

    Rail gun doesnt take 100 hp.

    you will get better at all fps's and every single VERY good player for most fps's today are old q3a players.

    because its such a fast paced arena game, your reaction time has to be MUCH better

    all players are the same, all weapons are the same.. its 100% equal...

    the only thing that makes you come out on top is skill.

    Ha, when i used to play this all the time for 4-5 years i went to BF2, SoF, RtCW, RtCW:ET,QW... and i would get it all the time.. "are you a q3a player?"

    Very easy to start playing if you've ever played soldier on TF2 hehe. Rocket Launcher=My instant win weapon. Rocket jumping is fantastic, no one expects it :D

    I love the rocket launcher and the shotgun. RJ towards them, shot from mid air, then shotgun their butts FTW!

    Huh, pretty fun. I'll keep it in mind on a time when TF2 is boring me.

    Very fast-paced. Like the lightning gun and railgun. Grenade launcher is nice too.

    Well... if it's exactly like Q3A, then actually, yes it does just that. And so do direct rocket, grenade or shotgun hits.

    The thing is, you start at 125 HP, which slowly drains down to 100HP if you don't find additional health powerups or armor, so you won't die in a single hit right after respawning, unless your opponent has quad damage.

    To hell with this. We should all get together and play the original Quake (or QuakeWorld Team Fortress) sometime. :D

    THAT will satisfy your cravings for a fast-paced shooter.

    Just watch as I get humiliated at this game :(
    I used to play a little, but I could never get the hang of it. I can't time item spawns and I can't railgun for shit (believe it or not). But I have a lot of fun memories from q3a and I hope we can get some good games going.

    ---EDIT---
    Just played some instagib with DJive and Chrono.
    Intense as hell... Just wish I didnt have 150 ping :D

    I'd play this more if I wouldn't suck so badly at it.
    The only thing I'm good at is rocketspamming people on "the longest yard" when they have a group fight.

    I miss the old "player pummeled player with a gauntlet" or something like that chat messages.

    I play this game every day still.. and often.

    Let me know if anyone cares to play, it takes about 20 sec's to download, 1 minute to install and 2 minutes to be fully updated.

    If you want to frag around or care for some tips let me know!!

    I was in BETA and this game more or less pissed me off. I don't know why, I just got frustrated playing it. I think it's my UT99 instincts or something but I just can't seem to like this game. Maybe I should try giving it a go again though
