It is kinda of exciting, even for me. Even though I’ve been in the closed beta for awhile now, not to mention there won’t be any Asian servers even when the Open Beta is released, it’s still pretty exciting that the game which I loved to play since years ago is finally being revived and the masses can now enjoy it. It’s really really sad that I won’t be able to play online at all when the new people come in.
I don’t want to mess up my stats, so I won’t bother playing on any servers since I’ll get 300+ ping on all of them. I used to do that just for fun so that I can talk smack with other people, since it’s boring to play with bots like 100% of the time. However, I won’t be doing that when Open Beta starts, since stats are never going to be wiped again, I don’t want ending up with shitty stats and being matched with noobs all the time when Asian servers actually DO come (assuming they ARE going to). Not that I hate that, just that it won’t be fun for them. I’m no pro by any standard, but beating anyone new to the game is pretty darn easy for someone who’s been around the game for years.
Still, it will be fun to see how the community grows, how Quake Live grows, how the in-game advertising works out, etc.
Unfortunately, when Quake Live actually goes open beta, it’ll be 8am my time and I’ll be stuck in school, though I’ll still be checking things out during my Computing lesson Provided the servers haven’t actually crashed by then of courseRead More
