First of all, all your points are based on the assumption that strafe jumping is some kind of downloaded hack or cheat like aimbots. It is in fact, not. Where you relate the usage of god-mode to strafe jumping is truely beyond me. I don't understand why you're pissing your pants over my opinion, either.
Your arguement that it is unfair is totally ridiculous. How is it "unfair" if everybody that plays the game has the same ability you do to use strafe jumping. You don't have to have special scripts, hacks, cheats, or whatever you want to call it to use it. Also don't state that "it's not fun" as a fact, some people like strafe jumping, me included. To me, it makes the game faster, more intense. 98234729384723982734 quake players and myself are not going to appologize or revert the decision to use strafe jumping simply because you don't find it fun.
Then you go on to talk about me using excuses. I don't recall ever using "because everybody did it" as an excuse. It is just a simple fact that a lot of players do use it. Not an excuse. Then again you go back to sarcastic comments about enabling cheats in servers.... ooook. :)
Once again in your next statement you talk about how it is cheating, and that people that use aimbots might find it unfair... for whatever reason you were talking about, I don't know, considering I never said anything about taking strafe jumping out being unfair. Like I said before, aimbots are not available to everybody, strafe jumping is. It's NOT cheating.
Why can't Q3 or Team Arena be realistic? Well- it already is to a degree, but do you really want to have q3 be the same as CS? You can only fix so many things before you change the game completely. I think its great how it is now. Don't talk about Quake being beleivable... I mean... think about what you're playing exactly. And last, it already is fun.
-end that stuff-
Somebody said something about it not being fair for newbies. Incase you didnt know this: People like fatal1ty and Makaveli, and all those good players didnt install quake and then already know how to play that well. They started as newbies also. So obviously, it's not impossible for newbies to learn. It's not like strafe jumping wasn't around when I started. I'm still playing, aren't I? Yes... If you don't like the game, you don't like the game. Some things just aren't going to change that. If you really want to get good or play a lot, then you wouldn't get pissed off and stop playing because of a few petty things you don't agree with. Especially the ones that most Quake players use and enjoy.
So basically, it's not going to change most likely, so:
