What clan do you prefer to play as in Team Arena? [submitted by Black Cat]

AnswerVotes
Percentage
 
Pagans: They're the default clan, so they must be the best. In fact, I still use Sarge in normal Quake 3!

3.3%
Crusaders: Thou shalt take this railgun from mine hands when thou can pry it from my cold, dead fingers.

8.3%
Strogg: I've got to relive those Quake 2 glory days.
98
8.7%
Intruders: Resistance is futile.
27
2.3%
The Fallen: I've fallen and I can't get up!
29
2.5%
I don't care, if it's not on my team, I shoot it. I don't have time to waste with trivial details!
358
31.7%
I don't care, I don't have Team Arena because I'm a horrible monster and I pray for death.
482
42.8%

mynx: look at the little weenie boys!
Ash: I think it's the Crusaders. I don't really pay attention, but my team's base always has the flashing fist on it.
shaithis: The Zerg! The Zerg!
Tetsuo: Bacon. Loads and loads of bacon. Did I mention bacon?
Pappy-R: Never really paid much attention to this feature. The logos are kool, but the guns always get my attention
Hellchick: The Crusaders! I just think that skin is so darn nice.
Spyke: Ahem.. I still don't have Team Arena.

While playing Q3:TA, you notice your team's flag carrier headed straight for a well-hidden nest of proximity mines. You: [submitted by I am Jack]

Send a quick warning over team chat and pray that he notices it.

Whip out your Rocket Launcher and bounce his ass outta harm's way.

Throw yourself on the mines and go up in a (messy) blaze of teamwork.

21.3%
Ignore it and go on with what you were doing. He's the flag carrier, he should have it all in hand, right?
94

Force him into the mines, swipe the flag from his corpse and make the cap yourself.
482
43.3%

mynx: I'd never force anyone to do anything. Of course, if one happens to stumble and fall I'm more than happy to help...
Ash: I usually try to rocket the mines in front of the runner so they have a clear lane.
shaithis: And this, folks, is why I don't play multiplayer action games anymore. "Force him into the mines". Christ.
Tetsuo: I would construct a bridge made of bacon OVER the mines thereby allowing my teammate to avoid the mines by going OVER them. Then I would eat my handy little bacon bridge and jump on the mines producing a bacon explosion!
Pappy-R: Dive onto the proxies, swallowing what I can for the team. OK, I've seen one too many old war movies.
Hellchick: I would dive into the mines, sacrificing myself selflessly for the love of the team. Then, when he dies from the nearby damage and I'm still around since I have the Guard, I swipe the flag and the glory.
Spyke: This scenario could never happen. Why? Because I don't have Team Arena yet!
Fargo: The cap is mine, he was merely holding it for me until he finished clearing out the mines.

What? Quake the Movie? Where?

32.5%

Ash: Definitely, I think Tritin Films is going to do a great job.
mynx: Four words: WING COMMANDER THE MOVIE
shaithis: I don't really look forward to that sort of thing. I just wait until it comes out and then check and see if it's cool.
Tetsuo: Oh man! A great movie, a diet Coke, and a butter topped bin of crispy bacon!! yay!
Pappy-R: Yes! I'm just glad Ash finally used Joe's question so it may stop showing up in the mail.
Hellchick: I get sneak peeks every so often, and it's SWEET.
Spyke: Five words: American McGee's Alice: The Movie.
Fargo: Hey, phat, a question that wasn't about Team Arena. Er, hang on, what was the question again?

What do you think the big event at QuakeCon 2001 should be?

AnswerVotes

Quake 3: Arena 1v1. It's still going to be the definitive deathmatch standard.
209
19.1%
Quake 3: Team Arena. Stick to the small maps so that the standard 4v4 formula works.
88

Quake 3: Arena Team DM. Objectives are for weenies, 0wn the items.
101
9.2%
Quake 3: Team Arena. But with six or eight player teams, open a whole new world of clan matches.
172
15.7%
[Insert DOOM Title Here]. Whatever id makes, it will probably still be the best multiplayer game, hell Q1 and Q2 were singleplayer!

Russian Basket Weaving. Let those professional Quake players do something productive with those highly trained fingers.
279
25.5%

mynx: Stupid dorky invite the masses big-business Quakecon. :P
Ash: Pffft. The BYOC area in QuakeCon is the Mecca of the Quake Community. I'm thinking that 6 or 8 man Team Arena would be seksi.
shaithis: The behind-the-scenes betting on how many people will pass out from heat exhaustion immediately upon walking outside for a cigarette.
Tetsuo: Bobbing for bacon-balls in the deep fryer - what else?
Pappy-R: I hope to go to this one. That would be cool enough for me.
Hellchick: Who at id can balance a spoon on their nose the longest.
Spyke: Pogs. Honestly.. they're coming back. Just you watch. STOP LAUGHING AT ME!
Fargo: The BYOC area rocks, the big pickup team games were always far more interesting than a stand-around-and-wait tournament.

mynx: Ash needs some serious therapy. Boobies.
Ash: [busy daydreaming about physical therapy with lots of boobies]
shaithis: Yes, Boobies are undoubtedly the preferred form of physical therapy.
Tetsuo: +bacon. 'nuff said.
Pappy-R: Let's hear some quantum physics on this one from Hellchick.
Hellchick: Well, you see Pappy, it has to do with tachyons, which mathematically allow you to travel backward in time...
Spyke: Don't ask why; ask why not?
Fargo: It's sort of like the +aim command I use, I mean, they could've called it +aimbot but they uh ... oh dear ... I've said too much, haven't I?
Ash: Yup, 'fraid so.

server: Fargo was kicked.

 


Who are these people anyway?

Pappy-R is the PlanetQuake Site Director and ensures that all the coolness on PQ that happens, happens.
Hellchick is GameSpy's Action Genre Producer, or at least has convinced her friends that she is.
Ash is PQ's Content Manager and doesn't realize that there are other games in the world besides Quake.
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
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.
Fargo has been around since the beginning of PQ. He's been known to camp everything, including the poll.
Spyke does the PQ in Review, the PQ Mailbag, and your girlfriend.
Tetsuo performs miracles that mere mortals cannot understand as part of the tech team at GameSpy. He also really likes bacon. Even more than Hellchick.
