How many players a team would you like to see in a team mod (CTF, TF etc)?

more than 32 - I want an army, not a team!
250
10.3%

dweomer: 4 on 4 CTF is probably the most fun. Teams much larger than that lack the feeling that you are a key member.
Joost: Team communication can be tedious if you're not in the same room.
Void: I prefer smaller teams, 'cause 1 player has a bigger impact, but we had some kickass 12 on 12 QWCTF this weekend.
Bastard: I like the army idea.
Fargo: The ideal team consists of me and whoever is on Clan Nine.
Gestalt: Big is beautiful...

2.2%
Does chess club count?
160
6.7%

dweomer: I think the overwhelming answer, "I'm in a few" says a lot about clans these days - most of it not good.
Joost: Used to be in Demonic Core, a UK clan until i moved to the states and didn't have time anymore for clan activities.
Void: Nope.
Bastard: Clans didn't take off with the same fervor for Q2 as they did for Q1. What up with dat?
Fargo: Maybe Clan Nine will accept me.
Gestalt: Never been in a clan, probably never will be...

What's your favourite type of Quake/Quake II mod?

23.2%

dweomer: Clan arena? Basty can't handle this.
Joost: CTF mainly.
Void: Rocket Arena 2 rules all.
Bastard: Clan Arena Owns Me.
Fargo: My favorites are class-based CTF... (insert Mod of the Week plug here...)
Gestalt: Teamplay is where it's at - anything else is just twitch kill, good for taking out your frustrations on your fellow Quakers, but lacking that deep down satisfaction you get from a good capture...

Joost: A life.
Void: Man, wouldn't it suck if you were an Amish person and found this genie?
Bastard: Hmmm. How about if the Genie is a major hotty?
Fargo: I'd wish for the next id game BEFORE it was released, and then sell it to Carmack so nobody's on to the Genie thing.
Gestalt: Mmm... T1. Do they even exist in the UK?

Joost: Uhm... would you believe i don't know? Whatever the default 3Dfx enhanced one is.
Bastard: We should separate this question into GL vs. Software.
Fargo: I play at a resolution of 1x1, so that when I fire my gun everything on the screen dies.
Gestalt: How can you play at 320x240? Ouch. Doesn't that strain your eyes or something?
