Pro CoD players vs Pro Quake
My friend recently uploaded a Youtube video comparing the professional CoD players to the professional Quake 3 players.

In my opinion, I just gotta say that these are PROFESSIONAL CoD players, and they're camping. Um...

Quake is all about timing and map control (RA, YA, MH, LG). In some cases players camping as well, the difference is over all pace and agressive style - Quake is classic arena shooter and you have to control resources while CoD (especially last one, doesn't have any major objects at all). In quake you can predict enemy movement as you all looking for same power ups. In COD, meanwhile, based on defending something (A,B,C point, flag, etc.) and attacking it. These games aren't equal. No one playing CS like Q3, because mechanics are different.
Also, video shows just skilled player on FFA, 1vs1 is where all the pro Quake goes. And TDM Q3 is even more hardcore because resources control.

During debate between CoD and AssaultCube[], I added your video. There are some intersting comments there.

Take a look:

I played AC for like 3 years before I made an account on the forums and they are all just rude ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s. I offered to make servers for people and they were acting like kids. Pretty sad considering the Devs are in their 20s or 30s.

As ♥♥♥♥ as it is, when a new COD comes out, 500,000 people are playing it at any given time. Same thing happened with music and movies. This happened in a blink of an eye. I dont see how it can get much worse. We are to the point of cloaking, rewarding camping, KD obsessed, new games coming out every year (same games). All in all this can all be blamed on consoles and greed.

I also doubt the cod pros travel all over the place to play call of duty because of the love of the game and competition, they do it because it is their job and they make 6 figures. No culture at all

They're playing a Search and Destroy style game mode. If they are on defense it would be idiotic not to "camp" near the bombs. (And thats exactly what they were doing) That's how the game mode is played. Attack and Defend.

2nd, you're comparing apples to oranges with Quake and COD.

3rd, lets say they're camping TDM. Who cares? "Camping is lame." So? They're "pros" (I guess)... Whatever gets the job done should be utilized to their advantage.

Not agree...In bf3 even tdm or rush camping not work, or if work its mater of time u die...but still be lame camp...

But is just too boring...

I will give you example from Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year edition:
When you play assault (Team mission based kind of mode) you have several points that you need to complete before the you move to the next point.
As the attack going, both attackers and defenders move to the next inner point. There is always action, no matter if you the attacker or the defender.

I guess COD players found the best way to keep alive... But if I watching games stream on twitch, surely I will try to find more active game.
