On Q3A Bots

Ever wonder about the Q3A bots? Wonder if they cheat? The good folks at Clan Nexus did some research on the subject. You can read the fruits of their labors here. Of particular interest is that chart of the various bots' abilities in the Q3ADemoTest.

Talking about fighting Major on the first level, he says, "I really don't know why they chose to start you off on a 1 vs. 1 level with the hardest possible bot." One tactic that seems to work well against Major (at least on Hardcore or below, haven't tried it on Nightmare) is to force her into close quarters, such as the hallways between the two rooms in q3dm1. She likes to jump around a lot and is deadly accurate all the while. By closing her in, she is more susceptible to splash damage from rockets or to shotgun pellets, making her "bunny-hopping" far less effective.

It's a good article, but I'd like to know who decided that a black background with small, dark gray text was a good idea.
