mynx: mmm, roadkill frag.
Pappy-R: Lagged is fragged. Charity begins at home...someone elses!
shaithis: Point... laugh... frag them anyway. Lag's a bitch.
Will: I give him a sec and get in his grill first. Then I humiliate the waste of space.
Hellchick: I go through this agonizing moral dilemma. "Do I frag them? Do I walk away with honor? Do I go for the easy kill?" By the time I've rationalized my way toward a decision, the guy's out of lag and has killed me. Bastard. Didn't he see the "Stuck in moral dilemma" icon above me head?!
Demonwench: I at least give them a chance with a few moments then KEEL THEM!
Ash: I used to just walk by, but then the guy right behind me gets the easy frag instead of me. So screw it, the guys meat.

shaithis: Not really. Back in the Quake1 days, sure, but the menus are now customizeable enough that I can cover pretty much everything from there.
Will: Technically everyone does, but I'm a big "Hell Yes!" on this one, too.
Hellchick: Team Arena. Pak file. Hellchick.cfg. [cough]
Demonwench: I luuuuv my configs...

Will: The fish.
Hellchick: Lava. Oh, the pain of humiliation!
Demonwench: You can't kill water, so it's not a creature!!
Ash: Since water/Drowning isn't a creature, I think this is the first ever poll question with an actual wrong answer... and it won!

shaithis: Anyone can hear "perfect". Just turn the difficulty way down in the single player game, set it to the first level, and camp the shotgun.
Will: "Holy Shit!"
Hellchick: "Holy Shit!" Best. Line. Ever. I laughed for weeks after the first time I heard it.
Demonwench: Haven't heard that one but a reader told me about it.
Ash: Oh definitely "Holy Shit". First LAN party after TA came out we ran into it during a great terra2 ctf match. We spent 15 minutes trying to recreate it for each person there.

Will: Hi-Tech Base. However, r_picmip makes everything look the same.
Hellchick: Gothic, definitely. I dug space maps for a while. I even saw a cool combo of the too.
Demonwench: I don't much care, as long as I can blow stuff up.
Ash: I like levels with blue lighting, my graphic settings are usually too low for anything else to matter.

mynx: boom. llama chunkies.
Pappy-R: "The Dead Guy" has entered the game. Never....ever, waste a quad.
shaithis: "You Are". Contraction. You're. You're. You're. "Your" means "it belongs to you". This country needs to go back hammering grammar into people for the first eight years of their education.
Will: KERSPLAT!! Instant carpet.
Hellchick: Okay, OKAY, I actually let them get a head start.
Demonwench: Blow them up! They came in, they expect to be killed occasionally.
Ash: I try to frag them fast enough that it just seems like the spawn took longer than usual.
