Q2 CTF was the best.  I remember one of my most heroic moments was running through the middle with flag, rocket jumping across and up towards our platform, turning around in midair and blinding sniping someone with railgun, and dancing the rest of the way to the flag... was accused of botting...  best day ever.   No women around to witness it though :(

The railgun didn't exist in Q1.  It wasn't until Quake 2.  Nice try, subby.

I once had a farrrrrrr higher-ranked player than myself charge into the old-school q2ctf6 map red base while I was its sole defender.  I had told my team to go out and grab all the defense tech they could, and they brought back the defense rune and power shield, and I got my armor over 350 and health around 200.  When the guy charged me, he had quad damage and power tech, and hit me with a rail that knocked me clear across the room and up into the far corner.  I fell, rocketing him the entire time.  His quad wore off and he managed to hit me with two more rails as I pummeled him.  He apparently gave up trying to kill me and dashed into the base to get the flag.  Just as he was about to reach the exit to the base, he exploded to one of my rockets.  I had 35 health left.

heh nice.  Man, quad damage + power + chaingun... just ripping people in half, that was so great.   Q3 was good too, but i always had more fun in Q2 grappling around and dropping rockets on peoples heads or basically being unkillable by loading up on health/shield stuff like you described in your situation.  Stupid kids these days will never how much fun that game was.

Just a big mass suicide bombing themselves. They can scream "Allahu Akbar!" to each other while detonating their bombs. Just imagine, hundreds of suicide bombers, bombing themselves, and no innocents around. It would be glorious.

Slightly "off-rail" but still a CSB:

Back in the glorious golden years of Counterstrike where cable modems were the new hip thing, there was a map called "Toilet" I think.  The idea was to defuse a bomb hidden in a toilet and rescue the hostages.

Being the [Utensils]The_Fork that I was, when the game started I grabbed all the hostages (I was a terrorist, Guerilla Warfare I think) and placed them all around the toilet bomb and set the timer.

In comes a GIGN or some other "good guy" and he can't get to the toilet bomb because the hostages are in the way...TICK TICK TICK BOOOOOM!

GIGN goes flying off-screen, "Terrorists Win!" and I hear a lot of "Godsdammit Fork!" chatter.

I tell them to go Fork themselves.  Had a spray made in Paint that read "Beware The Fork" with a pitchfork-shaped fork too.

Best gaming experience in my life :-)

I miss the 90s.

I sure am glad there are certain things we don't have to worry about in the US. God damned unbelievable.


We have a growing number of people in the US who distrust and or believe FEMA to be a criminal/fascist/NWO/globalist regime bent on world domination.  Give it time before one of those farktards does something of the sort.  Of course they also tend to be the same idiots who think bird shot will take out a drone and pass hunting laws on the things.

I am fairly certain there have been plenty of incidents of people firing on rescue crews during fires and evacuations.

That's going to have to be one powerful rail gun or a LOT of people standing around in a straight line - if you wanted more damage.

Mother-Fing yes!

High armor, rail and quad damage and you just cleaned up. Put a single bright-green pixel as your crosshair and click-to-frag. It wasn't even fair, blowing through multiple players at a time. Some of the hardest I have laughed in a game, sending 15+ gibs flying per shot when you lined players in a hallway or ledge up just right.

Good ol' days indeed.

I was playing from Q1 onwards.  So possibly.  I played those guys forever.  Even private beta tested Q2 on id's server in the middle of the night.

It's odd, despite the amount of FPS games out there these days that have multiplayer, TF2 is really the only one I enjoy.  The newer stuff seems to be war-porn, which I don't play.   I loved BF1942, do not play any of the modern variants.  Loved Tribes 2, can't stand the new one.

Q-Pong was my favorite mod of all time.  Q2 + teams + giant metal soccer ball.  Followed the Q1 car racing mod for a long time, never had the opportunity to play it.
