    Hey!

    So, today is Sunday (in many countries), and what it means? Surprise Sunday! :D

    Today we have updated our QuakeCraft game, we have added new guns, new death messages and many new features such as life and armor indicators.

    For who are curious, the new guns are:

    - Machine Gun: this is your starting gun, This is the best used to finish off your opponents, good from long to medium range, Don't be foiled by the low damage output, at 5 points per shoot, a good eye and steady aim. can easily widdle your enemy down to nothing.

    - Shotgun: Best used up close, it fires 12 bullets at once with 10 points of damage per bullet, if you fill up an unarmoured enemy with all these bullets, you are going to kill him instantly.

    - Railgun: One shoot, one kill, the second more powerful gun, causing 200 points of damage!

    - Plasma Gun: This gun is a very powerful machine gun that fires bursts of blue plasma with 20 points of damage, shattering your opponents almost instantly.

    - BFG10K: The BFG10K fires deadly globs of green plasma with 100 points of damage, These globs can kill an unarmored and healthy target in one hit, but this is a weapon that players can kill themselves with, so, be careful!

    - Rocket Launcher: With very slow fire rate, but insane power, this RPG can kill multiple targets in a single hit, including yourself!

    Some of the new features:

    - Powerups: when you kill an enemy, it will drop a random power up, from guns and speed boosters to life and armor suplies.

    - New Death Messages: depending on the gun used, you'll see many funny and different death messages!

    - More Speed and Higher Jumps: This is a fast gun game, so let's speed up the things even more!

    - New GamePlay Style: We have changed a lot how QuakeCraft used to be, so why not checking out by yourself what else is new? :)

    By the way, we are aware that things are not going as the planned, many BrokenLens players reported Frame Rate issues, and it's true, we have already downgraded many particle effects and elements for a better gameplay, but we are limited by the things that Mojang allows servers to do, currently the main frame drop issue happens due to the powerups and particles. which is entirely up to mojang to improve and fix.

    - Why is it "Part #1"?
    We will be working on a few more things to QuakeCraft, including the lag issue, so, as soon as 0.16.0 come out (which can be the solution for these problems), a new update will be announced!

    Thats it, enjoy playing!

    Go to the Bottom of the Screen. It should say - "Upload a File". Choose a Picture from your camera roll.

    Select a file from your computer if you're on computer.

    This was a great idea!But this new update in Quake causes a bit too much lag during games,in Lobby I wasn't able to even touch the screen because of the lag.I know you can't get rid of the lag but is there a way to atleast reduce the lag a little bit?Thanks. :)

    I think iOS is one of the laggier devices,especially the old versions.
