I just don't see why these people didn't just stick to normal q3. The community would be bigger then at least. Like look at CS and CS Source. That is still packed with servers and people playing. No reason q3 couldn't have stayed like that.


Great point. Even if QL was "new & fun" they should not have abandoned Q3 completely.

I have 0 hope it would be any good if they made one seeing as how bad q4 was. I really love the q3 engine. Wish they kept something similar to it.

Hopefully they will just sell the franchise to someone who knows what to do with it. It's not rocket science. Just take the gameplay from q3, add some of the better things from QL, and make the graphics really pretty and the deaths/carnage badass to attract casual gamers. Then get involved with faceitTV and 125FPS etc to support the competitive scene. Host really nice tourneys with the top gamers competing for decent money and get the younger generation addicted to a game that doesn't fucking suck.

I would love to see a Q5 tourney with crazy death graphics, with Cooller, Fraze, Avek, Rapha, Evil, Stermy, Fata1ity, Zero4, Cypher, Strenx, Dahang and anyone else that could possibly win competing for some serious cash. Fatal1ty said he'd compete if the prize was big enough, and I'm sure other older pros might start training again if it was worthwhile.

They just need to modify it a touch, bring back the gore big time, add some tweaks from QL and make it easier to set up for newbs.

How hard would that be? Then you could do a gamble... give the game away for free on Steam, have the community run the servers.

If the game gets popular again, then advertise the tourneys through the game. Get an audience for your tourneys. Then you'd make money on sponsorship and advertising through the tourneys.

Didn't ID sell the company after Q3? I could have sworn they did or something. Or maybe they are still their own, but ID is like a Valve and Blizzard who makes quality games yet they just take foreeeeeeeeeever to release something new. Valve too (Half-Life 3 if it will ever happen).

Obtained from Wiki on Id software "On June 24, 2009, it was announced that Id Software had been acquired by ZeniMax Media (owner of Bethesda Softworks). The deal would eventually affect publishing deals Id Software had before the acquisition, namely Rage, which was being published through Electronic Arts.[5]

On June 26, 2013, Id software President Todd Hollenshead has quit after 17 years of service.[6]

On November 22, 2013, it was announced id co-owner John Carmack had fully resigned from the company to work full time at Oculus VR of which he joined as CTO in August 2013.[7][8] He was the last of the original founders to leave the company."

Still not a fan of Quake Live but has gotten better than before except the skins. I swear they look like Quakized UT2004 skins that were so popular on UT2004 in online play but anyway.....

I am still kinda down as nobody but me seems to miss 1v1 rail sniff sniff, even though the servers are up here and there the population is non existent whereas 3-4 years ago they were mobbed 24-7 maybe they all went to WoW lol.
