Hi, Miguel.

Could you please give your impressions of the closed beta? And if you've played past Quake games, how does Champions compares to them?

Thanks in advance.

Let me save you some time.

Miguel: Well, it's Quake.

You're welcome. :D

Hahahaha

Okay... That's a great answer actually. It means it's as great as past games, gameplay wise. So that's a relief. Was afraid they had changed too much of the formula like they did with Doom's multiplayer, where they tried to imitate Halo or CoD.

Thanks, Grift.

PS. Btw, when will you guys do some Unreal Tournament's videos? I know it's far from completed, but it would be nice to generate some awareness.

It's... Quake Champions. Lots of different stuff going on here. Aren't they NDA nazis though? How much are we really supposed to chat about? The most obvious things that set it apart from its cousins: Champions. Spawns aren't inherently balanced. Different characters have different movement, health, and armor stats, and they all have some kind of cooldown based abilities (invis, wallhack, teleportation, etc).

There are no new weapons, and only one weapon missing from Q1-3, but it's a pretty major omission. There's no grenade launcher. That's an iconic Quake weapon. I feel like it needs to be in here and it's not. Some weapon tweaks are a bit controversial at the moment (the RL), but overall combat feels great. Movement, momentum, bunnyhopping, etc.. all feels good but it's important to remember that it's not Quake 3 Arena.

It's a fun if flawed game. It may be the only new free for all DM game that people actually play.

I was just giving you my personal impression of Miguel, I haven't played the game so I have no idea. Ask Miguel about a game, and that is usually what he'll say. :D

Don't listen to Drift, he always makes fun of me :(

Well, I don't remember playing Quake before, not my kind of game nowadays, back in the days I played a lot of UT2k3 and UT2004, but mostly in InstaGib modes.

Nonetheless it was quite enjoyable, too bad I did not have enough time to play more this weekend, but I'll certainly try more when it's released.

I only played with two characters, Nyx and Ranger, I liked both even if Nyx has less health and armor, it was fun being able to get invisible (for a limited time) and get behind opponents to kill them.

NDA lifted when this article went online.

EDIT : found these impressions on Gaf : http://www.usgamer.net/articles/quake-champions-be...

Yeah, I hate that about Drift and Blim as well. They're mean bullies, but don't worry, it just means that they're jealous of you and your accomplishments. So don't mind them and just keep the good work. :)

Thanks for the info! While I'm not very interested in Multiplayer games, I asked because of other people who might be. This is a way to have the impressions of game by the people who played so others could see, and if it interests them, maybe they will try it.

About the game
