  6. ELO cap poll

    Going with the idea of getting more people on the servers, I would agree to increase the cap, we would get more of a mix of people on the servers and in theory more players should over flow on to the other servers. BUT that's in theory, I've noticed that many people will sit in the 'server is full' state and wait for people to leave rather than start another game on another server. To bring the higher elo players in doesn't really cause an issue with me personally (i voted to try it), a lot of them that I've played with are really nice and good to play and interact with. BUT the admin part of me, dealing with the elo/ego maniacs who think its life or death in a quake game - they can be a pain as they will bash on the lower elo players with verbal and team attacks to vent their frustrations. So as long as there's an active admin on the server it's fine. but when no admins are around then unguarded abuse will happen. As far as KGB goes, he's friendly to me and Pete because we've taken action on him when he really gets out of line and at the end of the day he just wants to play. but he definitely can be an ass and a lot of people dont like his name calling and stuff, but to me it's more of a joking thing as I've never really seen him pissed off at anyone unless were all losing in the game very bad, then I see his frustration in his words. other than that he's not that bad, just have to stand up to him. - sometimes i like the challenge of a player like him as it gets the blood pumping. Some players just want to have the social and fun aspect of the game, some people want to be more competitive (or/and both) but it is a good time for everyone when they get what they're looking for out of this game. Its funny how this game can be fulfilling in different ways. All in all, it's a good idea to get more people in the servers and perhaps this community, but as I was just telling Pete last night, the people go where the game are, so if we dont start other games in other servers when other servers are full then it's difficult. - I'd say the tipping point of a server from being empty to packed is 4 or more people in a server, then they come in waves. - just what I've noticed, and fewer restrictions will allow more players in. my vote would be to have one 1700 server in place to leave a safe place for now (say, NY as its most friendly for east and west pings) and the rest no limit and see how it goes, we played a game on the no limit NY server last night and it was good. had a couple high elo players (+1900) in there at the start and they were fine, but they left as soon as the regular player wave came in the server. was a good night. 2cents given.

  23. Thinking of getting gaming monitor - advice needed

    I have a 1080 card, and the 2K monitor i tried wasn't a gaming monitor (60hz) so I was in the same boat and wanted to try a gaming monitor so I went with a gaming monitor (Benq XL2540) its a 240hz monitor, but in hindsight I probably should have went with a 144hz monitor as I still get frame drops on certain maps but for the most part everything performs well
  24. Thinking of getting gaming monitor - advice needed

    I would just keep things simple, QL can be a resource hog and can be quite demanding sometimes depending on your rig, the map, video settings and players etc. so if your video card isn't up to the task. then it could be difficult to achieve your desired results. #1 if you want the best results for aim, accuracy and smoothness, then you want to match your max-fps to what your monitors refresh rate is - the goal is to try to achieve 1:1 ratio for what you see on the screen. So if your video card can handle 144 fps consistently on your favorite maps then go for a 144hz monitor and you'll have a good experience. #2 Resolution - depending on your video settings in quake higher resolutions also can put a demand on your video card and affect your fps. so I would choose the resolution of your monitor based on what your video card can do. so if you have a high end card - it opens up more doors for you and more knobs for you to play with. 2K resolution works and I used it for a while and it looked nice, but I also have a higher end card that could run it with little issues and maintain fps. Also there are config changes you would need to do so you can read the chat text as it will be tiny AF. I use a 1080p screen, its good enough for me
  25. Thinking of getting gaming monitor - advice needed

    just make sure your pc can match the fps with the refresh rate of the monitor, safe bet is 144hz
