Totally agree with you all here, Quake was/is about player skill on a level playing field. Any class with even a tiny advantage will totally dominate in 1V1 or DM etc... team based goal orientated play is the only place where classes make sense IMO.
I strongly suspect there will be a pure classic mode where everyone is equal, seems a logical mode to add to me.
Class team based play is definitely more approachable to more skill levels and hence why its popular... still would be nice to have a classic mode in the game to cater to the hard core crowd.
