Why get Quake 3 over Quake Live?
I owned Quake 3 when it originally came out, haven't played it in years since a friend broke my disc.... Tried Quake Live today, and really, I don't see any glaring difference between the two.

What does Quake 3 offer that live doesn't already give you for free beyond 'freeze tag'?

i dont think you can use custom maps mods ect.i tried it but went back to my disc version.Because i have quite a extensive mod and map count i like to use

Any other reasons, or just custom maps/mods?

not really.just that
if you just want to play do it that way.not sure about hackers in the game and such.the disk version uses PB dont know what the live system uses

Because CPMA, that is all.

Now that Quake Live is transferring to a client-based system: support for operating systems other than Windows. (Though you'll need a Windows (virtual) machine to get the .pk3's and cdkey files from Steam.)

I been playing lots of Quake Live and haven't paid a cent. I see no real difference between the two products....

I also don't really see why people pay a sub for Qlive, it doesn't even really give you anything good. Without paying, you pretty much get Quake III exactly as it was from the box.

But for free.

Quake 3 is a pain to get the mods installed and download maps. 15KB/sec for server downloads with no fast http downloads. No thanks.

You can use a newer client such as Q3E which supports HTTP downloads if the server you are joining has it set up - http://edawn-mod.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7

I prefer Q3 over Live for a couple of reasons.
The main one being mod support (CPMA/OSP).
Input feels a lot nicer in Q3, QL has always felt off to me.
Q3 has gibs, original sounds/announcer, better weapon models, etc.

TI has tweaked weapon damages and they have modified the movement slightly.

Quake Live you have to pay to play the maps you want.
