fenomenoThis game is it, only wish the character models weren't so AIDS. Like Bruh what are these balls. Valorant invested a lot in its character models and I feel this game would benefit a lot from having more humanoid models.

half agree hit boxes are a little weird, definitely way different from any other game ive ever played but that’s probably mostly to do with the god awful hit detection in the beta

The game feels really weird to me. Like Im not very good at quake, so I dont have the most informed opinion, but it feels like there's no punishment for +forwarding at everyone because you cant really control space. From what I've played the weapons have really poor balance, with lg being basically your only option. Rockets feel like weird interp tf2 rockets, the playermodel isn't on the ground and that combined with really floaty jumping and surfs makes rockets even more useless. All you have to do when the other guy pulls out rockets is jump and then continue to lg because its impossible for them to follow up. Lg also has like no knockback so you cant punish people for pushing in bad spots. So many times I've picked up red+mega+another armor off spawn just to been killed by another idiot running through a tight choke at half my stack because there's literally nothing stopping them. Rockets makes killing you easier, lg cant kite, nades arent in half the maps (and wouldn't matter anyways). The game actually feels faster than cpma because you just cant control space like you can in normal quake.

Because of this, the maps are also terribly unbalanced. Skybreak is the worst offender imo because of the teleporters, which makes controlling area around mega and other armors basically impossible. Even when I was set up on mega with 200/200 stack, there's nothing you can do to stop the other guy from taking the tele and challenging other than just having better lg. Fights around items just seem like 50/50 lg fights, and then you back off and try to rail just to reset for the next set of lg fights. It really feels like cpma where you regain "control" by just running at the other guy constantly hoping for good damage, with map control and positional counterplay being a nonfactor (compared to how important it is in ql).

idk the game feels like its in a really poor state right now. I feel like I could be overreacting or just not understanding the maps well enough and might still be in a bit of gamer rage mode, so I dont really want to say that the game is bad, but its definitely not what I was expecting :/

I assume that you talk about duel?

You would expect space not to be controlled in TDM/FFA as nobody has much time to get most weapons.

> Rockets feel like weird interp tf2 rockets, the playermodel isn't on the ground and that combined with really floaty jumping and surfs makes rockets even more useless

Rockets in quake compared to tf2 are faster, the rate of fire is faster and they splash much less. Duelers dont use them too much when they can use lg because hitscan but they remain a space control tool. I would say that you are just too used to tf2 pacing and need to learn a new weapon.

>All you have to do when the other guy pulls out rockets is jump and then continue to lg because its impossible for them to follow up

You are talking about an opponent pushing into you with rockets? THis is not usually what happens in a quake duel where rockets shine in a defensive position when someone chases you, or to shoot at items.

>Lg also has like no knockback so you cant punish people for pushing in bad spots

Thats different in quake. Probably a conscious choice by diabotical devs. After all, why make lg even stronger (=have knockback) when you already said it's the best weapon? If someone pushes you then you either hit everything with lg and he dies, or you use rockets.

>So many times I've picked up red+mega+another armor off spawn just to been killed by another idiot running through a tight choke at half my stack because there's literally nothing stopping them.

Nothing stops you from flying everywhere in cpma either lol, if you lose a fight with twice the stack he has twice your DM, or more weapons and you did not have to fight at that time.

>there's nothing you can do to stop the other guy from taking the tele and challenging other than just having better lg.

Fights around items just seem like 50/50 lg fights, and then you back off and try to rail just to reset for the next set of lg fights. It really feels like cpma where you regain "control" by just running at the other guy constantly hoping for good damage, with map control and positional counterplay being a nonfactor (compared to how important it is in ql).

That indeed does not sound too appealing, if true. However in all quake games, just like RTS, games become interesting, tactical and positional only when players have a roughly similar skill level. So perhaps you did not find many players with the same DM level as you and fights ended up in stomps. Which if true, is going to kill the duel scene fast like all quake clones.
Also if you come from CPMA you might not be used to the run away game you have to do in ql, and attempt to take too many bad fights.
Look here the pacing :

Does not seem to show the same issues as you had with the lg only.

Facts, Also I haven't played for a while but I'm glad they removed everyone having all the guns/health it made everyone use the same few weapons and it made fights annoying

illyathis game is good!!!

The only gripe I have with this game right now is queuing for games (this might be only an issue for me). The queue times are good. But half of them I have had to leave and requeue cause 1 player would just not join. Besides that this game is so fun!

did the recent update kill anyone's performance, earlier today I had what felt like 140~ fps constant (didn't actually check what it was) but the game had an update and now I have an fps so low it's completely unplayable, like it's below 30
