    Had a good time playing for a few hours this evening. Playing a lot of TF2 lately has sharpened me a bit but I'm suffering with the rocket launcher. I'm way too used to the substantial lead I have to put on rockets from TF2, also I always lead where my first rocket would have bounced the enemy but that is completely out the window in Quake, splash damage is essentially non existent on the RL too.

    Got a nice ks with the railgun though in one match, kd is sitting at around 0.6

    The loading times are atrocious, especially on game launch, never had this kind of problems in other modern games.
    i7-2600, 8GB RAM, ATI 7850 2GB GDDR5, admittedly no SSD though.

    Also, advice on which video settings can be sacrificed to get better performance with minimal eyecandy loss?

    Load times are atrocious across the board, yes it's doom but I recall the menus in Doom being very clunky too. Hopefully this is one of their priorities as we shouldn't have to wait 5 minutes to get into a 5 minute game.

    In terms of gameplay it feels a bit sluggish to me, I don't remember arena shooters feeling this slow. That's probably just because I'm using the slower classes though, haven't tried nyx of the hoverboard prick yet

    I meant more general performance. Doom has amazing performance. Looks great and runs at a rock solid 60fps with everything maxed.

    Ah ok well this runs like garbage at times with bad stuttering for the first minute or so after a game starts (fps is high but I get stutters and freezes regardless), i5 and 1050ti which runs Doom on all ultra with lowered aliasing at 1080p. They have some optimisation to do but I will say this much, I'm using a HDD and I think id software are being cheeky with the expectations they're putting on read speeds from storage devices because this is two of their games that I've heard no problems from people with SSDs but I get all sorts of stuttering when transitioning scenes/menus

    no lad my current PC was salvaged from work, I slapped a few extra fans in it along with a 1050ti and called it a day. The HDD it came with sounds like it is dying so SSD will probably go in soon

    Played two rounds, wow that game. It was with the default champion (normal quake speed I guess), felt good. Such speed, such pace. I like it (I know, just 2 games, but it felt very much like quake)

    You can telefrag people with his F ball thing, try keep it ready for when the quad damage spawns then just telefrag into it. There's a tougher character who can charge into people as his special. I managed to charge and kill two people on the quad damage then automatically picked up the quad and charged right out of the room. Proceeded to fuck everyone about then which was awesome.

    I saw that I have enough cash to unlock one more champion, how do I get more and / or should I read up on them and figure out which one fits my playstyle?

    To buy them you click on the store icon on the top left of the home screen. I would watch some preview videos and look through the CBT forum, I've no idea what the high ranked people are playing but I've mainly seen the big robot, the scaley dude, the dinosaur and the hoverboard prick. Dinosaur looks nice and I kind of wish I picked him

    EDIT: misread question sorry, you can dismantle skins to make the red points and I think those are used to buy new characters. Use the middle currency (The green one? You get them free from each match) to buy loot crates, the drops from them can sometimes be sold for red points which in turn can be used to buy characters and also reskin weapons (For example you can buy the Quake 2 rocket launcher for 200 red points)

    EDIT Again: If I get b& for leaking cbt information to help you play this game I'm gonna fuck you mate
