Shape up or ship out

But seriously, you just have to practice. It's all about being quick and predicting your enemy. It's not a very deep game in terms of strategy. You'll pick up everything you need to know with experience.

Yea Im a Q3 veteran myself. Its kinda hard to go back to Q1 after that: Its all about timing and twitchy reflexes. Go and watch some recorded "demos" of Pros playing and learn from the best. fish around on community sites.

1. use ctrl and arrows.
2. strafe in and out of walls
3. dont use rockets or grenade launcher in close distances.

I have Quake on my iPhone. It's pretty dang hard to control.

However hopping into Quake multiplayer at this point will just end in you getting beat over and over again.

dude just use mouselook (type +mlook in console) with a crosshair (type crosshair 1) and the game becomes more manageable in regards to control.  I've had a blast and coming straight from Doom to Quake, my ass was severely handed to me but I toughed it out and I got used to it.  Stupid Shamblers, I hate Shamblers.
