"A fast-paced multiplayer Arena FPS set in a colourful robot universe developed by former Quake and esport professionals."

The short video is obnoxious but the project looks promising.

Haha, what about the trailer did you find obnoxious? Had you heard of GD Studios beforehand?

The style might actually appeal to Twitch users? Some of the terminology too? Rekt? FeelsGoodMan? MLG-360-noscope? FeelsBadMan? Why is there only one map? Is this even DOTA?

Reminded me almost instantly of 2GD (who himself can be viewed as rather obnoxious). Then I heard "WAIT I'M... FIRED?!?!" and it was perfect.
He's the guy who got publicly dumped by Gabe himself mid-cast at a major DOTA tournament. http://www.joindota.com/en/news/36578-g ... production

Interesting concept.

And looks like it's got a few other esports personalities involved too.

Quake's good gameplay meets csgo's matchmaking and skins, sounds like 2gd knows how to modernize the arena shooter.I just hope the genre still has an audience.

It will definitely have a core player base similar to t1/t2 vets who will be playing(i'll be one). If this does break through and manages to capture a large player base it should make for a great QL replacement. QL is pretty much dead and iD is working on Quake Champions (which is trying to be a quake overwatch).

Check out this QuakeCon QL grand final match from last weekend if anyone interested.
