What do you think about the "bullets as projectiles" model in q3a?

It sucks, I thought being a hpb was shitty as it is...

It's ok, as long as they tweak it a bit.

I love it, it's a stroke of genius, I will worship the concept of "bullets as projectiles"!

20.2%

Fargo: I suppose it's a little more realistic, not sure how it'll really affect gameplay that much, unless they make the bullets super-slow Matrix style... (not exactly what I play Quake for!)
Mix: I know more about 'projectile vomiting' than 'bullets as projectiles'. How sad is that?
pharcyde: Who cares.
Lowtax: I care, Pharcyde. I care.
shaithis: I'm not convinced that's how it works. I think that may be just how the _graphic_ works. The bullets are (I think) still hitscan.

Gamespy? What's the heck is that?

Fargo: It's worth it to register, just ask the winner of last month's secret "We'll send Sarah Michelle Gellar to your house when you register" contest!
sluggo: I'm not only the president, I'm also a member.
Mix: There's a lot of puppy smashing going on out there. How could you people hurt such innocent baseball bats?
pharcyde: Does Cliff Yablansky rule my world?!?! HELL YES!
shaithis: Yeh, I did, long before I ended up working here. I guess that's kinda like paying your own salary...
Lowtax: Gamespy? WTF.com is that, some kind of clothing line or something?

Fargo: At least she tells me I have a phat pipe.
Lowtax: It doesn't matter how phat your pipe is, Fargo, if it keeps going down.
sluggo: T1, baby - I love working for GameSpy!
Mix: I'm so spoiled... DSL at home, T1 at work. Can I get an OC3 to my brain? That would be cool.
pharcyde: It's supposed to be a T1 but I hear some 56K modems are faster than this joke.
shaithis: T1 baybee, tho I feel the pain of the 2k-ish modemers who answered.

Should there be hand grenades in Q3:A?

Yeah, nothing better than chucking spheres o' death at newbies!

Nah, grenades are useless.
535
18.5%
Perhaps, but only if they're made effective.
1050
36.3%

Fargo: I didn't think they added much to Quake 2, although our friend "Pill" uses them as effectively as a railgun.
sluggo: I've yet to see a game where the hand grenades don't suck.
Mix: Only if I can jump on one in a foxhole, yell "FIRE IN THE HOLE!", then my guts get blown to bits, and I have a touching death scene while my buddies hold me and cry. Or something.
Lowtax: It's always about the touching and crying with Mix, now why is that?
pharcyde: Only if when they explode they scream profanity or HOORAY FOR SOCKS or better yet Potted Meat.
shaithis: Go out, learn some C, and code 'em in! I mean...it's not like you need a master modeller to make the grenades. :)

No, I'm going to go for Unreal Tournament / Team Fortress 2 / something else.

Fargo: So far we're having a lot of fun with Q3 test...
sluggo: You're kidding, right?
Mix: I'm on a bathroom strike until it comes out. As you can guess, I'm a healthy shade of greenish-blue by now.
Lowtax: I'm not letting you participate in the polls anymore, young man.
pharcyde: No.
shaithis: All I'm saying is that standard, boring DM should roll over and die. I'm looking forward to the _mods_ for Q3:A.

How do you feel about id's decision to remove classes from Q3:A?

AnswerVotes
Percentage
 
I agree with it; classes in plain DM would be too unbalanced.

46.6%
I think it's ok, although I'll probably play a Q3A mod that does have classes in it.

32.1%
It stinks! I want classes like the ones from Nintendo Ice Hockey - The fat, slow guy; the skinny, fast guy; and the average guy was a work of art.
612
21.1%

Fargo: I don't think classes would've added that much to the game if they were going for straight DM. Save the classes for teamplay games!
sluggo: Maybe someone can make Q3 Nintendo Ice Hockey?
Mix: I thought it was kinda lame to begin with. As long as there's guns, who cares.
pharcyde: See question 1.
shaithis: It would've unbalanced it, but it would've made it more interesting than it currently is. I guess for what they're making, it's better that they ganked them.
Lowtax: THESE AREN'T MY CRAYONS!
