you make it easier to hit him because he is too fast??? Your try to balance this ability disaster destroys the gameplay completly. I play a few rounds after each new patch only to quit playing it until a new patch. Streamers are only playing it becasue they can win money in tournaments. How long will it take you until you realize you have to make quake like quake again???

wait, wut? who? You mean Doom? But he is capped at 520 and with his active (which has 50second cooldown by the way among the longest ones) goes to 550 speed.

The fix was so their models worked properly. I had plenty of hits not registering on Doom that should have. Nothing to do with what you are saying, its not "making him easier" to hit. If it works it should make him proper and not cheese.

Anyway.. It is a Quake like Quake.

Great news. Lets put this bad boy on the runway and test it out and see how it goes. Fingers crossed those performance fixes* are good :) 



Cool with a performance update. Hope it helps. Looking forward to test it.

I assume the broken rune challenges are still broken? Like the 'Most accurate 20x' Scalebearer challenge I reported on the forum September 27th : https://bethesda.net/community...



not for me anymore. Even toxjq wants equal players without ability nonsense and ask yourself why the game is already dead before its even a full version.



Good to know. Looking forward to it.

Hm not so sure about Doom Guys autohit. It kinda sorta spoils some of the fun for me. Is there any skill involved in it? Is to powerful that he can leap forward and take 75 dmg for granted?



So no fix on wep dps tied to your framerate?



The Russian version of this thread says "The update will start at 19:00 (MSK)" that's in 25 minutes from now 11:00 EDT, 16:00 GMT



Bethesda Launcher says 11:00am ET

 I think this is the one for it:

"Fix for random miss-hits for players that have a big difference in fps"

Maybe its just a small improvement for now so they worded it like that instead? Or maybe they fixed it indeed? Idk. But, its something to do with that I think.



thanks; I will give it a try after work.

 i understand that Toxiq is a good player, but his not only pro players. There were a poll somewhere here  and accoridng to it most fo the players including pro's like the champs idea. 

First the game is not dead as you say and even if it is the champs definetly not the reason for it. In my opinion it takes more skill to master all the champs and play good with them. In QL u needed to master aim, movement and maps and then practice it over and over again until u r moving with an eyes closed and it was getting boring, in QC u need all of that + different movement styles, speed, ability (active, passive) and so on. The champs gives some juice that Quake needed. 



Mesh hitboxes...
