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
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.
The standalone game has been released and besides people experiencing some problems with the .Net launcher, the major change of the standalone game is that Mac and Linux support are dropped. For those users Quake Live became Quake Dead. If you want to continue with the game, you will have to purchase a Windows licence. But it’s not all bad news.
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.
The QLPP19 has been released a few weeks ago and everybody has been able to give it a taste. The gist of it are the 3 new CTF maps, all coming from Dan Scancode Gold. We’ll get into those maps in a bit. Important for the freebies is that Domination and Attack&Defend now have “public premium” servers running, which should result in more players for these modes.
A sneak peek on the upcoming Premium Pak 19 has been released by Id Software, and I apologize for being a tad late with it. When the news was posted on the QL website, I was, and still am, at the hospital with my wife. To cut a long story short, I’m the proud father
