I haven't played Quake since the early 2000's. Was my first "online-experience", too. Time to jump back, eh? I just hope that there are other 30+ gaming-seniors trying to flex their reflexes, as I am bound to get absolutely gibbed by youngsters and their energy-drink-enhanced reaction-times.

I started with Quake in 1996 and still play Quake Live, so there should be some grey-hairs out there. See you in the closed beta kids.

Thank you so much OP! I really appreciate the heads up.

Edit: I feel bad for some of you. I hit the submit button and I got an email within 2 seconds...

I used chrome on mobile and provided a gmail email. It did warn it might go to spam.

Double Edit: I just entered in another email address of mine just for someone on here if they don't receive a code. Got a second confirmation.

Lame that we can't record or stream, but I'm excited to play and try this beast out for myself. Hopefully customization options are in place for this beta.

Why on earth would they not let people stream this? If the game is good that seems like competitive fps players streaming it and saying as such would be the best thing for this game.

If it's anything like the ESO beta, things are going to be radically changed by launch. Bethesda plays betas close to the chest. That said, ESO beta went out before any gameplay footage was ever shown off, but it was really different. I'm a little surprised with Quake, though, especially since it's been at PAX East and they've been releasing videos on a weekly basis since then. Hopefully they'll lift the NDA for the next one.

I had the same thing, looks like a lot of people are having that issue on the forum. I'd guess their login server is fucked.

Whatever I'll just wait until tonight or tomorrow for them to fix it

It's going to have different kinds of armor cosmetics and backpack (lootbox) + renting a character.

I signed in last night and then cooked dinner. I was 950 in the queue. Came back an hour later and was under 100 people. Just be patient.

I'm in the same boat as them. I have played over a 1000 hours of TF2 though, so I'm probably a lot better than the average beginner but I still struggle to get over a 1:1 KD.

Also as far impressions go, I'll keep mine vague (NDA), it's very fun, they struck a nice balance, positive overall.

Someone in one of my matches was standing still every time he wanted to shoot. I don't think he's EVER played Quake. I felt bad fragging him repeatedly.
