        It's so hard to go back to other Quake 3 versions without it. It's an absolute godsend for strafing up stairs.

        There are like 3 quake 3 you fagot
        Original Q3
        Quake Live
        Team Arena

        >I suck to corporations
        Open Arena exist you fagot it is literally Q3 only LIBRE and FOSS

        Openarena would unironically be better than retail Q3 if it had better maps. I actually prefer a lot of its art and sound effects.

        The trouble with Quake is that a a new player will get absolutely mercilessly annihilated by low tier veterans. Mastering the movement and learning the maps takes time, and it's very tough to do that when your opponent is strafejumping circles around you and fragging you before you can get 10 feet from spawn.
        Also with Quake Champions being the most popular version of the game atm you have bullshit gay champions that people abuse.

                It's not a bad thing but it is why the genre is dead. Your typical FPS player is a simian that wants to click on people once and see them fall over. That's why CoD 4 dominated the market way back when and then tons of other games copied the ADS+Sprinting+Super-low-TTK formula.

                That was because consoles were the primary development focus and you can't aim on a controller. People have always liked all kinds of games and were begging for more fast paced oldschool games during the entire modern-military slog that followed modern warfare.

                I will respond one last time to this bait image of misguided wrong opinions by a dead man about Quake Champions that get reposted out of context.
                Quake Champions was a game no one wanted, or to be more precise a fame made for nobody.
                Younger generations want easy casual games with participation awards and skins and lucky wins like fartnight. They want instant gratification and not to get the only reward for their efforts be that they are a bit better than they were at the game yesterday.
                Older generation didnt want Quakewatch. Old school Quake players didn't want champignons with different speeds, hp, and ultimate abilities. Fucking wall hack? Really?
                And no one wanted shit optimization, disastrous laod times, long queues, some braindead new game mode, only a few maps, high system requirements...

                >inb4 pros?
                What about them Total Shitscuit? They all want to earn money and are longing for the glory days to come back. but even they play other shit and force themselves to train a bit of duels before Quakecon as the prize pool is high.
                >inb4 the couple hundred gays that play daily
                They are not even worth mentioning considering the namesake of the game.

                QC was a little too early. They made it on a Russian tech called the Saber Engine. Instead of waiting a bit and using idTech 6 it would have been a drastically better game. Instead it was outsourced to Russians. And when their contract ended they moved on from development.

                You have some decent points but it still doesn't change the fact that nobody stepped in to fill the gap. If there was real demand for AFPS titles then surely this would've happened and the games would have been successful.

                It's your fucking fault for expecting a AAA arena shooter but also the first thing you do is turn off every graphical quality and textures including abusing picmip to exploit visibility AND force player models to be the same fucking stupid hitbox filling model

            Most FPS games are not primarily played by people who want 1v1 duels. The vast majority of FPS titles on the market are either free for all deathmatches, team deathmatch, or some team oriented objective. Quake has these modes but duel is the big one. It is way WAY easier for a new player to get into a game when there's already a big playerbase and they have teammates to lean on in matches.

              back in the early 2000s I remember loving Quake 2 FFA, it was very comfy and the movement wasn't as extreme as Quake 3, so you actually had a chance of killing someone. Plus the Q2's chaingun required almost no aiming.

              Quake 3 on the other hand was a fucking nightmare, full of progamer tryhards that destroyed everyone in seconds and bunnyhopped at Sanic speed. Fucking unplayable, no wonder I stuck with the golden age of Half-Life mods.

      This is complete cope. I have less than a 100 hours on quake champions and when i played i could easily hold my own against veteran players and topfrag regularly. I guess the 5k tf2 hours helped, but still, the average player isn't some insane gamer food consuming pro. The problem is nobody fucking wants to play. OP is right - there's thousands of these plebians that like to sit and listen about muh epik arena shooters but refuse to play it.

        The problem is that like with Q3 no one plays it and the game is abandoned now.
