Here is an overview of the game:

Developed by id Software, in conjunction with Saber Interactive, Quake Champions is a return to the frenetic, fast-paced competition that established Quake as the originator of the multiplayer shooter genre more than 20 years ago. Quake Champions delivers the dark mythos of the first Quake combined with the groundbreaking multiplayer mayhem of Quake III Arena with a major modern twist – Champions. These fierce warriors each wield unique attributes and abilities, enabling players to compete in their own distinctive style, while adding an additional layer of strategy to the game.

Key Features:

  • The Next Great Quake Multiplayer Game – Quake’s signature rocket jumping, skill-based competition, and incredible speed remains intact, providing veterans with a welcome return and new players a fresh way to showcase their multiplayer skills.
  • Incredible, Diverse Champion – Quake Champions introduces a roster of elite Champions, each equipped with unique attributes and abilities that are additive to Quake’s established gameplay. Champion skills offer a great variety to fit your play style.
  • Uncompromising Weapons, Ready for Battle – Quake’s devastating arsenal of flesh-chewing weaponry, including fan-favorites like the thunderous Rocket Launcher, electrifying Lightning Gun, and snipe-tastic Railgun are back alongside new additions for you to master.
  • Intense Game Modes – Established and beloved game modes return, including the gib-filled fragfests of Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch and the competitive fury of 1v1 Duel mode, while a new team-based mode, Sacrifice, joins the fray.

Eh. I might try it now, although I'm still not a fan of the champions. I don't like the MOBA genre, and this sounds like an arena shooter MOBA. To each their own though, I suppose.

I've played the game for a few months, it's really nothing like a Moba.

Yeah, I tried it a bit and didn't seem too much like one. I'm still not a fan of the champions though, but they don't seem too bad.

Yeah, ideally I'd prefer them with no powers (which I believe they are making a mods just for that). That being said, I do think that having some powers can also help newcomers against Long term Quakers.
