It's better to play all skill levels if possible. If you play against people better than you, they'll expose the flaws in your game more clearly. Playing against weaker or skilled opponents will help you more easily hone your skills (movement, map control, etc.).

This is probably a VERY weird thing to say but:
I(a quake2 noob!) would like to train up other noobs,
Like. What if they first get pro tips from the pro's and then they can fight me(a noob!) to test the tricks at someone who dosent play like purri.
That way they wont give up!
Sounds good?

best way to get practice is to practice against better players


Not true.

Im not a good 1v1. in fact i rarely play tdm. But one way to better your skills up is to study the different playing styles of players. What are there strenghts in terms of weapon, movements etc. Ex. if they do usually hang out near an armor or weapon or ammo. whats there fav map. how do they react if you would sneak up on them etc.

Also it may be wise to focus on maps that you think you can master and from there you can move on to other maps.

That right there should be a sticky..  Too bad there aren't as many skill levels still playing 1v1.

It's always been that if you mymap and disconnect before the map goes live, it's deleted from the queue.

Occasinally, someone will stick around until their map loads, and THEN disconnect, which is not appreciated. (Currently the only recourse is a full mute, as there's no provision for blocking just mymap usage.)

At least these days, the chosen map has to be roughly compatible with the number of players active on the server. (No more mapping sewer64 on a 3-player server; etc.)

Any way to prevent people from trolling with mymap? By that I mean they join the server, mymap a map, then immediately discconnect, forcing whoever's playing to play a map that nobody there necessarily wanted to play in the first place. Maybe have it check to see if the player who issued the command

OK, they made a routing change that appears to have resolved the issue I was seeing here.

Everyone else's pings back to normal?
