In the recent weeks, people have been playing the Quake Champion beta, and there have been discussions about various aspects of the game. This column is my attempt to look at Quake Champion as a whole, and try to consider things past the short-term beta. [img1] The Product We will talk abou

I've been quite preoccupied with this issue for a while now, especially in light of QC's beta and upcoming release. I believe this is a matter closely related to my continuing to take an interest and occasionally play Quake titles (QL, CPM). To be honest I donít really understand fully wha

The last days, due to the inminent release of the Quake Champions open beta and Bethesda's aim to provide it with the largest amount of users possible, i've seen lots of people debating on why Quake is not as successful as other game franchises, commonly finding its main causes at the deve

QL vs VQ3 weapon balance (11 comments)
Posted by Therapist @ 21:50 CDT, 9 October 2016 - iMsg
A game is composed of game mechanics. Each game mechanic is delegated a portion of potential power for it's human user. If this potential power is the right amount, we say that the game mechanic is balanced. If all of the game mechanics are balanced, then the whole game is balanced. A game

Critique of modern shooters (22 comments)

Critique of reflex Reflex is the type of game that was created by no-skill rocket spammers. Everything about this game is designed for the rocket launcher player. The type of player who is incapable of tracking targets with his crosshair. That is why they made the movement too fast, so hitscan ca

**EDIT** 14/06/2016 - A lot of the stuff here doesn't apply to Quake: Champions. It looks like a genuine attempt to me to bring Quake to the modern gaming culture, and I hope it is successful. I see a lot of people on the internet think of the oldschool shooters as 'mindless' twitc
