16.8%

Pappy-R: I like a model that's the size of the bounding box, and I use Doom out of a sense of history. Ya gotta love the original demon basher.
Hellchick: Yes. The model I use smells good.
shaithis: I use whatever player model whose sounds I like best. Since I'm going to be listening to them the most often, that sort of makes sense. For example, I love the Klesk player model, but I despise his sounds, so I don't use him.
Clemenza: Ah, this kinda thing's gotta happen every five... ten years. It's been ten years since the last one.
Mickey Knox: Does camoflauge make a difference in the forest?
mynx: Honey, I make all the difference.
Ash: Ranger/blue baby. All of the Quake 1 love, all of the Quake 3 polys.

just for fun
327
32.4%

Hellchick: Back in the old days, they did it for fun. These days, they do it for resume value, I think.
shaithis: It's fun, AND it brings notoriety in a community which is steadily growing. It's cool to have people recognize you when you join a Quake server, and it's even cooler to see people enjoying something you created.
Clemenza: Hey Paulie! Bring us some more wine!
Pappy-R: A combination of fun, experimentation, giving to the community and job application.
Mickey Knox: Fame and fortune are definite pluses, but I think most are just interested in doing something challenging.
mynx: Addiction. Heh.
Ash: Everyone starts out doing it for the fun, now days it seems easy for mod teams try to lose sight of the fun and get too "professional".

Clemenza: Hey Mikey, why dontchyou tell that nice girl you love her? "I love-a you with all-a my heart, if I don't see you again-a soon, I'm a-gonna die!"
Pappy-R: Don't make me decide these things! Can't I just use the random option and have a good time?

Football on Quake 3, you must be cracking smoke.
477
50.4%

Hellchick: The Hellchick Gambit: run around the field killing people, and if I accidentally pick up the ball, throw it immediately in the wrong direction and hope to God my team doesn't kill me.
shaithis: I really need to try this mod. It sounds pretty funny.
Clemenza: They shoulda stopped him at the beginning... like they shoulda stopped Hitler at Munich. They was just asking for trouble.
Pappy-R: Throw the ball, catch the ball, run the ball, and blow people to hell!
Mickey Knox: Don't ask questions, fire till you run out of rockets.
mynx: Run around and scream "panties"!
Ash: First I run after Hellchick's wild throws, and then I try and get through the uprights before the other team liquidates me and plays kick ball with my gibs.

It's either that, or walk over and sock the guy in his arm.
206
22%

Hellchick: My lawyer says I have to know what "smobin'" is before I can answer.
shaithis: The whole point of a LAN is to communicate in team games, or to scream profanity in a constant, undying stream at anyone who's not you.
Clemenza: Leave the gun. Take the cannoli.
Pappy-R: Not often since at events you wear headphones and so do the other players.
Mickey Knox: LANParty... mmm... it's about the love.
mynx: I'll smobe you, Hellchick.
Ash: I'm with shai, it's all about shouting at your team mates to cover your butt, and letting the other team know who their daddy is.

What Quake weapon would be the hardest to assemble from scrap in real life? [submitted by G-Bomber]

AnswerVotes
Percentage
 
Rocket Launcher - At least one that didn't fry everyone behind you when used...
23
2.4%
Railgun - Damn electro-magnets never work....
188
20.1%
Lightning Gun - Toasters+Hair Dryers+A bunch of long wires+Power outlet = "Fired" Engineer

The Quake 1 Axe!
146
15.6%

Hellchick: The BFG, of course. I keep saying I'm going to build a rail gun and I never do.
shaithis: I think it's pretty safe to say that anyone who could actually generate any of these weapons (except, possibly, the axe) from scrap has probably already been "silenced" by the US Government.
Clemenza: Paulie! More Wine!
Pappy-R: JunkYard wars needs to try a railgun!
Mickey Knox: BFG is simple. Just need a portable transport core with a dynamic signature verifier. Oh damn. Nevermind.
mynx: I keep meaning to build a BFG, but my boobs get in the way.
Ash: Can't say I've found much "scrap" solid rocket fuel to make the ammo for a rocket launcher just lying around, maybe Hellchick has some.

Hellchick: Yeah, I swear a lot. %^&$!
shaithis: Profanity. Lots of profanity. A constant, undying stream, you might say.
Clemenza: Yeah, I left it loud so it'll scare off any pain-in-the-ass innocent bystanders.
Pappy-R: I hum the Overture to "le Nozze Di Figaro".
Mickey Knox: Is alcohol consumption considered a bad habit?
mynx: I yell at Mental. It helps.
Ash: Besides cursing (isn't that expected?), I have a tendency to forget to blink.
