A new poll is up, some might have read my ESR reply to a fundraiser thread. I’m all ears for the community and would like to know if you are missing a weekly sunday cup that can attract the right people to keep it interesting. I have created a fundraiser on indiegogo.com (which is exactly Read More
To get the ball rolling again on Holysh1t.net, I’ve created a new simple poll. What gametype do you prefer? Is it Duel, or would you rather play CTF? Does the full stack of CA appeal to you or is the TDM setting more your kind of deal? Let us, and everyone else, know what your preferred gametype is. If it’s not listed, feel free to put it in the comments here. Read More
If only I were to actually play Quake Live instead of streaming the coolest games out there!
Since that’s not the case, it may be fun to find out who the community rates as the best player on the ESL Intel Extreme Masters World Championships.
So who do you think will claim the title of World Champion at CeBIT 2010 in Hanover, Germany?
(From March 2nd to 6th, but unless you lived under a rock for the past few months, you already knew that 😉 ) Read More
A new poll was due long time already, but I couldn’t find any decent thing to poll about, but since Stermy finally played the last qualifier rounds, a new poll has risen!
So, who do you think will come out as victor at the IEM4 final rounds at Cologne? Vote away! Read More
EXTRALIFE makes it sound like a bad thing, where in the end it’s just one of the many personal preferences that make sense to you but makes no sense to the other half of the world’s population.
The question simply is: what’s your deal here?
Do you play inverted or not? Ever tried it?
Let us know! Read More
It had to happen sooner or later: pro settings. Many screamed for it, many don’t care at all, and perhaps some haven’t figured out yet what this “pro” thing is that is labeled on several TDM servers nowadays.
In a first step towards competition settings – in case you forgot, they are working on it 😉 – a small difference has been made public: a change in weapon spawn times on TDM servers. Players new to Quake Live know only the regular spawn settings, but Quake 3 spawn times originally were 30 seconds for a weapon. This lead to heavy competitive behavior and map control was crucial as without a gun, making a difference suddenly became very hard.
Quake Live introduced a shorter weapon spawn, which gave freshly spawned players a breath of air, but annoyed the opponent also because that same map control lost a significant part of it’s importance. But now the longer weapon spawn time is back in town, and players have to review their gamestyle. However, Quake Live features another impact on teamplay that Quake 3 didn’t have: drop weapon.

One aspect of maintaining a good website is readability. Nowadays wide screen monitors are as cheap as older 4:3 ratio monitors, and for multimedia and gaming, this usually gives a better experience. There is one downfall of going widescreen and that’s browsing the web. Traditionally websites are made to scroll vertically, not horizontally due to Read More
In the last few days we couldn’t help but notice how clanbase has nearly 30 private Quake Live servers to their disposal to run CB competitions.
This made us curious if it would be reasonable for us to ask 1 or 2 private servers for #qlpickup.eu as well. Just for the sake of refiring some of that interest in those pickup games Quakers have come to love in the past few years. Read More
Since the previous poll about two weeks ago, it has been established that more than 90% of the people passing by this website think Quake Live is worth a score of at least 3 out of 5.
Today we’re curious to know what type of maps all of you would prefer to see more of in Quake Live.
It was previously said that the creation of new maps in Quake Live would depend on the success of the game.
Seeing how Quake Live received more attention than id software had ever dared to hope upon launch, I can only guess they are taking this as a sign to start mapping even more!
Just to make it even more interesting I also added the qzTRAINING option, even though there’s currently only one map like that and it’s not at all sure id software will ever make more of these.
This poll allows you to select max 2 options and will probably run about 2 weeks. Read More
