Poll Results Outputted
The PQ Poll Results have been outputted with the following information:
Have you grown tired of q2dm1 - "The Edge"?
|Hell no! I practically live in that map|
|No - it will always be a classic|
|Yes - it's getting old|
|Hell yes! If I see that map one more time...|
|I've never played it|
|I'm too tired to answer this question|
Chris: The Edge? I'll be on the edge of insanity if I have to play this map much more.
Gestalt: I'll always remember it as the place I grew up...
Bastard: I don't think I've played any of the others more than once or twice.
Gestalt: Hm... Now you mention it. What were the other maps again?
Do you deathmatch with bots?
|Yes - all the time|
|Yes - sometimes, but not often|
|Yes - it's the only way I can deathmatch without a 10 second ping|
|No - I tried it though .. never again|
|No - I need real meat dammit!|
|No - I don't know what you're talking about|
Chris: Who needs bots when you have a quick digital connection? ;) The 'Reaper' for Quake was great for competitions though.
Gestalt: Here in the UK we have to pay for local phone calls, so if I want a deathmatch and it's not the weekend or the evening (when phone rates are dirt cheap) I have to use bots or I'd quickly rack up a $1000 phone bill...
Bastard: The U.K. is just plain wrong. What does the "Queen Mum" do again?
Do you share techs with your team members in CTF?
|I can share Techs?|
|All the time! Just call me The Autodoc Fairy!|
|Only if my team is losing|
|Only if I don't like / need the particular Tech|
|Only if I'm on defense|
|Only if I can trust the person to give it back when he's done|
|Only if I know the person won't die and hand it to the enemy|
|Never! No one deserves Techs but me! Get away!|
|Very rarely - I don't even have a key bound to "drop tech"|
|I don't play CTF|
Chris: Techs? That's a rune right? Guess I don't play a lot of Q2 CTF.
Gestalt: "Mine, all mine..."
Bastard: Not a very giving audience out there. Where's the love?
How often do answer the same PQ poll?
|0 - "Where am I again?"|
|1 - "Read my lips, no tampering with the results"|
|2 - "Really, the last time I hit submit it didn't go through"|
|3 - "I couldn't make my mind up..."|
|4 - "I SHALL BE HEARD"|
|5+ - "I like clicking buttons"|
Gestalt: There's a whole lotta smart asses here this week...
Bastard: I just go right in and edit the results of the whole poll if I don't like them. Did I just say that out loud?
Gestalt: Like I was saying...
Do you use the GameSpy's buddylist?
|No - I don't use GameSpy|
|No - I didn't know about it|
|No - I have no friends|
|Yes - but not very often, I have few friends|
|Yes - all the time|
|Yes - it's all I use it for|
Bastard: Stay tuned for PHAT buddy list enhancements.
Chris: Yes, it's quite a nifty feature, but so many darn aliases these days, it's difficult to find even your buddies!
Gestalt: Hm .. that's almost 500 of you still need assimilating then.
What is an acceptable number of patches for a game?
|I don't give a rat's ass how many|
|Over 25 patches is too many|
|Over 15 patches is too many|
|I would download 10 patches, after that piss on it!|
|I think 5 is an acceptable number|
|Any patches means too many patches|
Chris: Well, I have no comment on Q2... Unreal is rocking from the new patches, but just give me the game when it's done and I'm happy.
Gestalt: Ideally zero. In reality, anything more than 5 is taking the piss.
Bastard: "Taking the piss"? You feeling ok Gestalt?
Gestalt: Oh god, don't say that's another of those phrases that Americans just don't understand...
What's your favourite Quake II "Mission Pack" so far?
|HeadGames' "Juggernaut" (ugh)|
|Xatrix's "The Reckoning"|
|Rogue's "Ground Zero"|
|Team Evolve's "Zaero"|
|"5001 Deathmatch Maps We Downloaded Off Cdrom.com And Put On A CD Without Their Designers' Permission - Volume MCIX"|
|I haven't bought any of them|
|I've got some of them, but they all sucked|
Chris: The only one I have is Juggernaut, probably because it was the first, went through the whole thing the first time I fired it up, haven't touched it since.
Gestalt: I've only played The Reckoning so far, and that was OK though hardly earth shattering. Just got a review copy of Zaero this morning (thanks Hulka!) but haven't had a chance to play it yet...
Bastard: Too many games - not enough money left over for MP's it seems.
