Is there any reason to believe this won't go the way of Warsow and other Quake3 clones?

Bad timing on GD's part. They're going to have to compete with Quake Champions. I've been following this project for two years now and I'm glad its finally getting released, hope it survives!

Quake Champions*. Quake 4 was released 11 years ago.

Diabotical looks more complete than Reflex, which is unfortunate for the Reflex devs. They've done some pretty impressive things over there (the ingame map editor and netcode changes), and Diabotical already has the map editor. I'd be happy if either of the games blows up in popularity.

saying Diabotical out loud to people in real life sounds less ridiculous than saying "Team Fortress Two"

edit: and when this game comes out I want to try to learn how to make huds with it and recreate rayshud or something

How many of these games do we need? We have reflex, toxikk, the new unreal that will be in dev forever, ratz instagib. And no one plays any of those games btw, all the communities are dead.

all they have to do is make an arena shooter with big titted anime girls and i guarantee it would revive the genre
give them "battle damage" so their clothes get ripped and torn as they take damage and you have a best seller

He talks about movements, coop, skins, and etc. Also hilarious/funny stream cause it's Yames.

I asked him to make aerowalk, he said someone from the community already made it with ztn, but he deleted it to piss them off cause it was funny lol.
