What is the worst thing one can do while playing ctf? (submitted by Joel Kadlecek)

Answer Votes
Percentage
 
Forget you have the flag and decide it's time for a snack break.
381
22.1%
Watch your teammate run in, blast the hell out of everyone, take the flag, run out with 1 health left while he calls for you to escort him, but you stay and wait for the flag to be returned so you can have it.
212
12.3%
Same as above, but get killed waiting for the flag.
220
12.7%
Grab the chaingun with 300 ammo, the megahealth, 200 armor, quad, and the power amp, and then run into the opposing base and into a red laser, killing yourself with the flag.
417
24.2%
Decide it's time to play games by not letting your flag carrier pass you to get into the base to capture the flag
102
5.9%
Same as above AND have someone capture your flag, blast the hell out of you and your flag carrier, return the flag, and get the capture.
389
22.6%

Fragmaster: Die in real-life, because they were too busy to notice they were having a massive heart attack.
Pappy-R: Get killed in your own base by a gauntlet, while holding the enemy flag and quad, inches from bringing home the bacon for your team.
shaithis: The worst thing you can do in CTF is stand in my goddamn way while I'm trying to cap the flag. Yes, I'm talking to you, stupid!
Lee'Mon: Shoot a rocket at me and throw me into the abyss while I'm bringing the flag back.
Hellchick: Have the flag, be within kissing distance of capping, and then eat my own rocket trying to kill someone taking our flag. Stupid rockets.
Tetsuo: I have the flag and like 1 health - you are running in front of me swooping up all the health AND armor - FREAK!

Spyke: Play id. Bunch of camping, railgun-using bas.. What? Oh, no! I meant great players, spectacular game developers! Really, I did!


What do you think of the fog effect in q3tourney5? (submitted by Vod Smith)

It rocks! Why aren't there more maps like this around?!

It's cool. It's an interesting twist on gameplay.

It's okay; I wouldn't download a map with the same effect, but I don't dislike it.

Burn it! It's awful and impedes gameplay in a bad way.

Fog effect? What are you talking about? I'm still trying to beat Crash.

12.4%

Fragmaster: I think it is a soup of a bad choice.
Pappy-R: I thought you said "frog effect" and gave up trying to find it.
shaithis: One of my favorite maps in the pack. I'd like to see true volumetrics tho, with swirling mist and varying layers of fog.
Lee'Mon: Sh... don't mention the f-word around my computer. The bots might hear.
Hellchick: I love fog! I keep expecting to see Rick and Ilse there, saying, "Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow..." And then BLAMM!! Bogie gets a rocket courtesy of Uriel. That would be my choice for ending "Casablanca".
Tetsuo: It's great! I love rocket-jumping up top and launching rockets down into it. Some peas and carrots floating around in it would be cool also.
Spyke: Fog is my friend. We've spent a lot of quality time together. Especially that "fog of death". We're well-acquainted.

Quake - I LOVE those chaotic, bouncing pineapples of death!

Quake 2 - Quieter, but deadlier.

Quake 2 with no launcher - my HAND is the best grenade launcher there is.

Quake III Arena - compact, easy to carry!
236
14.1%

Fragmaster: Quake. Hello.
Pappy-R: Hand tossed fruit rules!
shaithis: Quake still has the best weapons of any of the series.
Lee'Mon: How about the Cataclysm Grenade from the Q2 mod LoX?
Hellchick: The original launcher had the best sounds. I didn't earn my nickname Goddess of Grenades for nothing.
Tetsuo: Quake3:Excessive. BOOM, BABY!

Spyke: Quake 2, baby. Get me on Q2DM7, and your ass will be thoroughly grenaded. I camp, and am damn proud of it!


What is your favorite part of Quake III Arena? (submitted by Death Mage)

Answer Votes

The weapons! The ultimate incarnation of everything I liked about Q1 and Q2.
329
19.7%
The arenas! Nothing like a little ambience to kill with.
331
19.8%
The Doom Guy! Come on...he's a classic killer.
407
24.4%
The easter eggs! You know it's a good game if you can find Old Man Murray in it.
80
4.7%
The fact that there are more curved survaces than Hellchick! (Hellchick's note: I swear that's Death Mage's own sentence.)
521
31.2%

Fragmaster: The tin box which keeps cookies fresh.
Pappy-R: The graphics, the models, the maps...oh my!
shaithis: Need I say this? Mr. Pants's Excessive Mod is my favorite thing about Q3A.
Lee'Mon: That fact that it still kicks UT's ass.
Hellchick: [Hellchick last seen approaching shaithis' cubicle with a very sharp axe]
Tetsuo: The CTF maps with the obvious rail gun perch - camping without the stigma!!
Spyke: The female models. Bribing Steed is money well spent.

I don't know what Voosh is, but I understand that if I don't go check it out now, Hellchick will send hired goons to my home.
998
60.8%

Fragmaster: Toeslappah.
Pappy-R: I've played Voosh, but Hellchick sent the goons anyways. Now I can't play at all till the hands heal.
shaithis: Voosh? That's the sound rockets make when they're flying past my head in Excessive (Sorry guys, but it's the only type of Q3A I play).
Lee'Mon: I remember when "voosh" originally meant Quad + Power Amp = 6x damage. I assume this is a Q3A mod, though?
Hellchick: Lee'Mon, you make me sad.
Tetsuo: Voosh is the sound of my hand flying over my head as I read that question. Ok - here I go to find out!
Spyke: Voosh! Voosh voosh voosh. Voosh?

Crazy Klesk's Discount Weapons! You want rocket launchers?! We GOT 'EM! We're practically GIVIN' 'EM AWAY! You'd better hurry, before they stop me, because I'm INSANE!

Hellchick's House of Chicken and Waffles.

21.5%

Fragmaster: Freedom.
Pappy-R: Bacon...lots and lots of bacon. And a comb too.
shaithis: A lifeless grey void through which one falls eternally with no idea where they are or what's going on. Sort of like my apartment...
Lee'Mon: The restrooms, of course!
Hellchick: I vote for Crazy Klesk's. I got a great deal on a slightly used rocket launcher, and he threw a Salad Shooter in for no extra.
Tetsuo: Chicks. Hot Chicks. Just waiting for me. Ooooooooooo I can see them now... BRB.
Spyke: Somewhere over the rainbow, quad gloooooows bluuuuue...

 


Who are these people anyway?

Hellchick is the PQ Site Director, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Pappy-R is PQ's News Jockey and Part-time Table Dancer.
Spyke does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend.
Lee'Mon writes articles and editorials for PQ, which means he's really into finding things to complain about.
shaithis is a former PQ Site Director who now spends his days running GameSpy.com and sharpening the spikes on the top of his cubicle. You think we're kidding.
Fragmaster also used to run PQ, and now manages ClassicGaming.com and the console section of the GameSpy network. He also enjoys the occasional potted tuna.
Fargo has been around since the beginning of PQ. He's been known to camp everything, including the poll.
