HOW DO YOU GET OTHER EMPLOYEES TO PLAY?

So you've now got the green light to play a few hours of Lithium during work. But what's the fun in playing if you can't slaughter your coworkers, something you've dreamed of ever since Bob from the accounting department told everybody about the time you cried at the ending of "Beaches"? The key lies in inviting people that, due to their repetitive and dull positions, have lost all will to live. They will be much easier to frag than the normal hyperactive 16 year olds you might find yourself up against if you played on an outside server. Let's examine the various types of people you may work with and if they're fragbait or not.

  • Secretary - Secretaries are the most adept typists you'll find in the office. That makes them potentially lethal killing machines especially if they play keyboard only. So if you play against your secretary, your best method of winning is to pay people to call your office, shouting frantically that they need to speak to your boss, claiming that the government has found "the test subjects". If this doesn't work, have a friend spill scalding coffee on her hands. The downside of beating them - You'll never get any phone messages again.
  • Managers - Here are some good targets. Manager spend all day... um, managing things, so they usually have the reflexes of charcoal. They'll come up with all these ingenious plans to kill you, but when you coming whizzing around the corner with a railgun, they're cannon fodder. The downside of beating them - You'll probably be fired. Or at least you'll wish you were after he moves your office next to the loading docks.
  • Fellow coworkers - Could be a gamble. They do the same work as you (in theory), so they might be as well skilled as you in the Quaking arts. The best thing you could do would be to wait until some large crisis in their life, such as a family tragedy or something, and then ask them to play (ie "Gee Brad, I'm sorry your mom was gored to death by those bulls and all. Have you ever played Quake before?" They won't be focused at all and will be easy targets. The downside of beating them - For revenge, they could pee in the water cooler and you'd never know it.

I would advise against asking the boss to play you a few rounds of deathmatch. When it comes to computer games, bosses are clueless. You'd be lucky if you could find a company president somewhere that knows how to begin a game of Solitaire by himself. Of course, this is yet another sweeping generalization, but fortunately I don't really care.

Well, I think that pretty much sums up the "Quaking at work" guide. I'm sure there are things I left out, but that's only because I'm lazy.

QUAKING AT SCHOOL

Haha, there is no "Quaking at school" guide! It was a trick! Stay in school instead and pay attention; you'll thank me later for it.

IN SUMMARY

In summary, with a developed method of writing, an advanced understanding of mathematics and astronomy, a calendar system, and as well as a striking artistic aesthetic and ingenious architectural style, the Mayan culture created an empire that spanned the area known today as southern Mexico, El Salvador, Honduras, Belize, and Guatemala. Oops, wrong article.

In summary, I hope this article has helped you become more successful in your pursuit to frag at work, one of the most notable and lofty goals in the history of mankind. If it hasn't, I'm really not that surprised.
