OK. I've only played vanilla and that was literally 15 years ago when the game came out. I got bored of it rather quickly since I'm not much of a multiplayer gamer and I was way more invested in CS and UT at the time (UT with instagib mod was about as fast as Q3A but IMHO more fun and furious! ). Q3A always seemed a little too simple and one-dimensional compared to CS or UT so I lost interest very quickly.
When you watch some competitive Quake 3 matches you start to realise how insane this game is. It's all about timing, positioning, movement and aiming. You have to know the maps extremely well, you have to constantly anticipate where your enemy is going to be and you need to move around really quickly all the while trying to hit the enemy. Some of the rail shots that the best players can pull of are unreal. Think quick, shoot even quicker.
The maps may be smaller but it's far from simple.
Now we donce.
