Mynx: th3 c0n5tant 1447 5p34k
Hellchick: Standing stock still and shooting at me with a machine gun when I've got a rocket launcher.
Demonwench: I thought it was l337... and I'd guess newbies can't run in one direction and shoot in another.
shaithis: I'm gonna have to go with Hellchick on this one.
Mickey Knox: Staring at the ground.
Ash: Ya, what Hellchick said. Hell, actually, just about anybody that just stops and aims for a bit before pulling the trigger.

In Team Arena, why don't Rail slugs reach their targets over very, very, VERY long distances? [submitted by Deepblade Hellkross]

The slug burns up because it travels at a very high velocity.

12.3%

Mynx: boobies get in the way.
Hellchick: Honestly, I didn't know they don't reach their targets over very long distances. That's probably because I'm a horrible railer and wouldn't notice.
Demonwench: Who needs the railgun? I want something that EXPLODES! BOOM!
shaithis: Actually, even high powered rail slugs would lose velocity and arc toward the ground over time. Maybe it's a "realism" thing? Or maybe id just screwed up. ;)
Mickey Knox: Its the air currents. Definitely. Yea...h....
Ash: *tries to calculate the needed velocity to remain earth orbit while still subject to atmospheric drag, determines a perpetual kinetic energy requirement, gets headache, passes out*

Mynx: so not big. unless you count my boobies.
Hellchick: I'm about 2700 square feet.
Demonwench: I'm a very curvey 5'8" and will KEEL with little discretion! Oh, and take care of puppies and kitties.
shaithis: What's somewhat odd and frightening is that I was more involved in the scene before I came to work with GameSpy. Now it's all about booze and hookers.
Mickey Knox: Bigger since Christmas...
Ash: Unlike shai, I'm still in the phase that I'm being big on the scene. However, I hope to move up to booze and hookers real soon.

 


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.
Mickey Knox is the Site Directory of LANParty.com and is just visiting the PQ Poll to spread some of the ownage around.
Demonwench helps with the Mailbag and helps give a fresh perspective to the ol' bag.
