mynx: I am a newbie LPB. It is good to be me.
Hellchick: Yeah, gotta go with ping. Hasn't been an issue for me for about a year, though.
Ash: While you can overcome just about anything, there's no denying that a 100 ping difference is a major factor any way you cut it.
shaithis: The most important? Ping. It's not the be-all and end-all, though. My younger brother used to routinely trash LPBs with a 256 ping. But yeh, in a one on one, with two equally skilled players, it's all about ping.
Demonwench: Well all and good but you just can't forget about the PONG!!

Demonwench: I'm a po' college student. I play with what I got.

Hellchick: I try to avoid it, but not talking about your job is hard to do around your friends!
Ash: All the time, most of my friends know the glory that is Quake. And if they don't, I do my best to enlighten them.
shaithis: If that friend also plays computer games, sure, but most of my friends don't.

Ash: RA3, I'm a bouncing ball. baseq3, not very often at all.
shaithis: I am also capable of there, their, and they're differentation. But rocket jumping is cool, when it's needed.

Hellchick: I have an unnatural fear of the railgun. Ask Pappy. I don't know what it is, but I'm afraid of using it in a game. I get nervous and suddenly can't hit the broad side of a brush with it.
Ash: You can't really be good at Q2 or Q3A without being good at the rail, so I'm all about it.
shaithis: Fear the rail? Christ, I played nothing but Railmatch Lithium in Quake2 for like six months straight. I adore the rail.
Demonwench: I fear no weapon! Bring it on, baby!!!

Hellchick: This is no laughing matter, you know.
shaithis: 360+ people have cats that are silently praying for death to end their humiliation.
Demonwench: Sniff, sniff. I don't have a kitty! I wanna kitty! Where's the kitty? Oh, and who can forget boobies?

 


Who are these people anyway?

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.
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.
Mynx is our resident advice expert, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics that the rest of us are just too scared to touch.
Demonwench helps with the Mailbag and helps give a fresh new perspective for how people suck.
