Holy trinity Meta question (RL,RG,LG)
okay im "migrating" (not really) from quake champions and i have learned that there is a meta of 3 weapons, rocket launcher, lighting gun, and railgun,
Quake live is a remake of quake 3 arena that means that this holy trinity has been the meta for 30 years plus...
isnt it time for a new/ different metas to take place ?
at least in quake champions there is some new gameplay variance in champion speed and yes abilities,
that being said , I really can see why Qc isnt picking up new players if the only new meta changers are abilities.

no whats wrong with rocket, rail and lg? its pterfectly fine.
and this is the beauty of quake, its stays the same.. there is no new metas
so you can concentrate on improving and you have a game that stays consistent.

instead of the random fkfest that is QC

also (to a new player) why would it matter what the meta is, because if he is a new player it wont matter to him what the meta is because to him it will be fresh anyways?

com_idlesleep 0

the other weapons are not useless, they are just situational..

ok lets look, lets compare quake to the "generic shooter"
Generic shooter has a primary wep, a secondary, and 1-2 grenades.
in quake you have : lg, plasma, rail, rockets, machinegun, gauntlet, shotgun, grenade launcher..
so i dont see the problem?
bruh youre goin off to random conclusions and avoiding the question, idgf about other shooters im just asking if the trinity meta has been way too dominant,
and second that this just makes games really predictable.

I find the shotgun in Quake Live to be a very powerful weapon.
In fact I have seen people win matches using just the shotgun.

i dont understand what you want to discuss here?
what is it that you actually want?
you just ramble on but you make no sense at all
you are just a fkin trash player and i am wasting my time here, you aactually have nothing to say.. you talk talk talk, but you say nothing.

game is 20 years old! OFC nothing is going to change, they are not working on it anymore!
either you play it how it is, or you leave

stop flaming each other



there is no "meta", each weapon is as useful as the other in different situations
IMO it's a sweet formula that's yet to be truly mastered. 30 years and people are still improving their gameplay. It's got a super high skill ceiling, it could challenger a gamer for years. There's so much more than the weapons as well, like map knowledge, mental game, hand eye....

Nobody wants to play arena shooters anymore, so it was going to stay low regardless until sales that spiked the population up for a little bit.
Forever underestimating the power of the Plasma Gun.

Duels have been won and lost with the rapid spam-power of the PG, it may not be the most reliable; but it completely denies a corridor fight.
