almost same way of argueing:

"Diablo 2 is the GODDAMN WORST game ever made! Well the gameplay is awesome, the classes are flawless, the lvlup system is impressive, but: Grand Tourismo allows WAY better customization of your vehicle plus MarioPaint has the way better slap-the-fly-minigame!!! So fuck DIABLO 2!!"

your argument in support of QL is rendered invalid by the fact that my QL accounts keep getting banned and blocked...

QL is a thread to all Q3A players that have no social skills...

my intention wasnt, to support QL. he was just comparing apples to pears.
my bottomline was, that the author of the vid slightly overdid it with the "why doesnt have QL feature X?? :(". no reason to be sad about that, just play Q3, then. or doom. :O)

you can use my QL account if you want. :D

you can strafe in ql... but, as far as i am concerned, QL feels like having haste all the time but not as powerful as the Q3A pickup

all three of them of course... xD i didn't care to change ip when changing accounts and they did seriously track my other accounts and banned them all..

if you spam they ban you from using in-game chat... that is what i wanted so i can duel tier5 people without having them patronize me... which is useless (since i will keep developing my own playing style) and demotivating...

They can track everything because Oracle DB permits them to find all they need ... look at this

Yes , probably it is ... but I'd want to point that QL infrastructures permit to QL admins to find all the infos they want in a while.

The image is taken from TTimo blog ( ttimo[DOT]vox[DOT]com/library/post/my-quakelive-dashboard.html ) who is one of the QL dev team.

The ss shows a KDE4 desktop with 7 consoles attached to some of the remote QL servers : if you pay attention you can see a couple of things

- Every machine is equipped with a 8core CPU and 16GB of memory ( you can see that on the htop output )
- Every machine is running a Oarcle DB which is a much powerful , clustered and scalable DB
- The consoles on the right show some Oracle logs or the logs of a piped wrapper to the Oracle DB
- The user is connected through ssh to the remote machines and his username is timo ( as now they should have switched to openvpn for remote access )

Another proof they use Oracle is in this post ( ttimo[DOT]vox[DOT]com/library/post/drcp-saves-some-jiffies.html )
