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
Having a good setup is very important to get the edge in Quake, and while a PC that can run Quake Live at a stable framerate is very important, so is the peripheral that is the mouse. A lot has been said about which mouse is the best, but even if you have the absolute
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.
Remember that today is the last day of the “Play All Arenas in Start a Match” week! Pro subscribers can start servers for standard players and all maps are available regardless of the standard mappool. This works for any gametype, so get some FreezeTag, Red Rover, Domination, etc. going!
If you want Quake 2 Live anyway, check Jake 2 (java) or Quake 2 (HTML5) (instructions Linux only, harr harr).
A new premium pak has been released by Id Software. There aren’t any major game changes but there are 4 new maps to play with. Let’s get right into it. Monastery is a medium-to-large sized map most suitable for Clan Arena, Free For All and Freeze Tag. Lots of edges and crates allow for a
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

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!
Holysh1t has been down too often in the last months, due to a (probable) misconfiguration on our VPS. Me and Lashknife have moved to a new server, hosted in Amsterdam, NL. This new VPS has been running for a few months without going down once so we hope that all issues are now resolved. I
