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.
