Hey guys! Today, we are proudly announcing the release of something new: The Quake Live Recruitment Center. The concept is quite simple: if you’re looking for a clan or for players, here’s just the place for all of you ! We had the idea to create a system here at #teams.ql in which anyone can Read More
Some things about the existing config generator could use some improvement (such as it being crammed into a small column) so I decided to renew it and at the same time make it even more userfriendly by adding a couple of features: Preview weapon style images (due long time) A keyboard that maps your bind Read More
In order to make the Quake Live community strong and long lasting, we need both oldskool and new players to keep playing the game. Many experienced Quake players know their way around the game to have it look and feel exactly as they want. For new players, this is chaos. The flood of questions on the #quakelive irc channel proves this.
We from Holysh1t saw this flood coming and started preparing some important pages to help those players feel comfortable in playing and fine tuning the game. Read More
About a week ago we announced a restyling of this website. We kept our promise and here it is! The old design was limited in options and a reorganization of the layout was badly needed.
Although the new design might still be a bit buggy the first few days, most things should be running smoothly if you’re running IE7+. Bugs in IE6 will be fixed later on.
Either way… Lets review some of the major improvements in this theme. Read More
Some of you may have read in the most recent news update that Quake Live is now using Twitter.
Wait… what? You can’t say that! You’re breaking the beta Non Disclosure Agreement!
Well, not exactly. Twitter is a public feed. Just do a little search in Google for “Quake Live Twitter” and you’ll see that these updates are not private and they are there for everyone to follow.
Ok then. But what exactly is this “Twitter” You’re talking about?
Twitter has been the internet hype of 2008. The Twitter system is similar to “Facebook updates”, and to be honest, that’s really the only thing twitter does: keep people updated about random activities in a short sentence of maximum 180 characters. Read More
Holysh1t is currently one of the biggest public Quake Live communities out there with on average 200 people at #qlpickup.eu and over 1500 people visiting the website on a daily basis.
Yet we still have the ambition to do much more than we’re already doing. Besides beginner guides, interviews and strategy discussion we also wish to provide event coverage, organize our own online tournaments and who knows what else.
But to achieve all this we need help from the people within this community. We can’t do everything by ourselves anymore and we would like to get as much enthusiastic people on board as possible! Read More
Time has gone by and things have changed. Not just at holysh1t.net, but mainly in quake live itself. Here are some key developments that occurred in the last few weeks:
Change #1: The Quake Live website has permanently moved
The Quake Live website has changed its location from quakelive.idsoftware.com to beta.quakelive.com. The beta is still closed and you still need an invitation to get in. Yet id software is sending out a massive amount of invites and it is said that the current user base of approx 25,000 will be doubled in no time, bringing Quake Live to about 50,000 closed beta testers very soon (rough estimates). Ask around in #qlpickup.eu on mIRC if you need an invite, you will surely be assisted soon enough. Read More
We’ve all experienced it already – one inch away from a cap and you get fragged … Holy Shit! Welcome to holysh1t.net!! We started as a Quake Live CTF pickup channel and are happy to see CTF is still a very popular gametype. Quake Live is only in beta phase and we already have over Read More
