Spoiler
Also how is Quake being 500 times harder than Dark Souls impressive? Especially when Serious Sam makes it look like a baby game?
What is this meme.
Have you ever played Serious Sam? it seems like something up your alley
Not in a very, very long time.
Wow, took you long enough to reply
I had to weigh my words.

Yep, I've got mine. It has an NDA and everything, meaning there won't be any streams. Already downloaded and set up the launcher. It's going live in like 5 hours.

Gotta admit that I'm starting to feel the hype. Bethesda and id actually seem committed to making it a success. Marketing is on point and they're doing a good job getting the name out there. They've said on numerous occasions that esports is going to be a major focus of theirs. The 1v1 FPS scene is a big gap right now and Quake would be perfect to fill it. Several famous pro players (Fatal1ty, Evil, Tox...) have been involved in the development and they've got one of the biggest former pro names (Zero4) as a manager of their esports division. And many of the old legends and veterans of the game (many of which are now playing Overwatch and such) have picked up the series again and have talked about coming back if Champions turns out to be successful.

I really hope they can get this right. Get a lot of old pros (Evil, Cypher, Rapha, Cooller, Killsen...) back as well as draw in a big audience in regular and major events. The thought of 50-100k viewer streams for big Quake team and 1v1 tournaments is getting me hard already.

It's not even live yet, so we'll find out soon. The demos at events seemed pretty damn fast though.

Holy shit, there's a lot of people and pretty big names in the community who didn't get a key. Lucky me. I guess they might have looked at your past or something, because the email mentions that "my dedication" and commitment to the series has paid off so that I can play as one of the first.

Anyone else here got an invite?

This is really cool. I haven't been part of many betas this small and closed before. Looks like they really went for people with a history of Quake. They have private access forums with devs and community managers where we're supposed to make threads, discuss stuff with the Quake people and give our feedback. This is great.

I can't say much because of the NDA, but holy fuck this game is great. Plays and feels like proper Quake, and definitely no slower than it should be.

I think that's more likely to happen.

You're not alone, after all.

I'm reading that the ones who are playing the close beta right now are forced to wait in a queue, is it true?

Not at this point. I'm playing right now and it's great. I've 4 out of my 4 games. I missed this. :)

Ah damn, my 14 game win streak has ended by running into a pro player. That's been one of the coolest parts of the beta so far. Getting paired up with these famous players who won Quakecon and world championships in the past. I beat one, lost by 3 points to another and then got my ass kicked by the third.

There will be another beta round opening up soon where more invites will be sent out. I think that's public knowledge though.

NK was here. Everything I post is dead serious, no jokes.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
ITS NOT FAIR
If I get a key, I'll give it to you.
