Id Software has lowered the prices for a Pro subscription and removed the Premium option altogether. Good news for all the Pro users, but not so pleasant for the Premium users. Only 1 subscription option is left, which simplifies the model. A token for 1 month will now cost $/€4.99, 3 months will cost $/€11.99 and a years worth of premium content will set you back $/€35.99. It’s no longer possible to buy a 6 month token as they were not populair, says SyncError in the news report. Read More
A new month, a new pool. I’m a bit late with the “news” but better late than never. CTF doesn’t seem to have a really bad pool anymore lately. We have Ironworks and Japanese Castles to work with, as well as Infinity. Duel will revolve around Aerowalk, Cure, Delirium and Silence. A lot of fun Read More
This month’s mappool has been released last monday. As usual, 26 arena’s are shuffled and made available for standard (free) players. These maps will be available from April 7 until May 4.

The new mappool for standard players has been released this morning. A choice of 26 maps is available for people who do not have premium or pro accounts. CTF’s most interesting map rotation will include Japanese Castles, Shining Forces, Spider Crossings and Finnegan’s. I’m pretty sure Bloodlust and Railyard will get their own fair share Read More
Id Software has released a small game update to Quake Live., mostly to fix exploits and callvote bugs. I think the most important bit about this update is that the bots will properly switch weapons when they run out of ammo and Clan Arena won’t crash when there are more players than spawn points on the map anymore. So people playing Clan Arena against bots, rejoice!
For those of us who have Pro accounts, you are now able to launch any gametype and host it for standard players as well. This should allow some gametypes to get more traction and along with that more players. If you ever wanted to try some of the non-standard gametypes, look for spawned servers by pro subscribers.

Holysh1t, time is flying and there’s been some interesting news lately. One of the most interesting bits of news is the announcement that Quake Live will be turned into a standalone game. A lot of people see it going back to the roots of Quake 3 but there’s more to it than just a Quake 3 re-release. 1 of the most discussed items is the discontinued support for Linux and Mac.
