Rumors are shooting around all over the place on what the "major" update they are doing that has been ongoing since yesterday is about...

Heres what Ive see/heard.... Add anything you may have...

Quake live looks to be outta beta. They now have a "rating" of T for teen... I believe that you have to have that ESRB rating once the game is outta beta. Also I assume there is new content as well including maps and freeze tag....... but there is also a a pay scale for some things. Theres 3 options... free, premium, and pro. havent seen the prices but I found this list...




It should be up soon.... but if all of that is correct.... pwp WILL have a set up with a pro account by me and who ever else can do it so we can scrim and have servers...

Post any more info if anyone has it.. Smile

Should be back up by 6 pm EST....

I understand they need to make profit but I don't think that is cool to charge people for a map or two. I rather pay a straight up fee for a map pack or a mod then have to pay monthly.

I highly doubt its gonna be a map or 2..... for it to work they need to entice to sell.

With a pro account I can invite 3 people that play freee to play the new content though... so in that way, if it's true, that will mean we dont need many to have a pro account... just a few..

Also, the non-beta thing is just a guess by me, not something I heard. Just makes sense now that they have an ESRB rating and the logo currently on the page does not say beta...

For sure but still I rather pay a 1 time fee for it.
Also I will get pro account depending on the pricing.

When Qlive came out they had a few new maps... I assume theres going to be a bit more new content now as well.....

Also, having paying customers... they will be able to "afford" staffing for new content.

Time will tell if they do it or not...

Who's to say they don't shut down after QuakeCon and run away with the money? It's a website, they can close it whenever they want.

Also: The "new" maps are EASILY ported to work on .32... So in reality, you can have all the "new" maps and play on a standalone client (cpma) for absolutely free.

True... Since ID is a new company that only has an investment in 1 game and site and brings in no other money from anything else and them "breaching contract"... which is what that would be considering you are paying for a yearly membership that has to either be fullfilled or refunded retro from the closure date........ You may be right...

Actually, they're developing Doom 4 and Rage... But those will be console ports (aka NOT a money pit)... I think this is more of a setup for "get as much as we can out of this than focus on the big money games".

It's bethesda/zenimax running the show... you think anything is past them?

"id is fine with flawed concepts. Being zenimax/id now? Probably not so much. Bleeding money is a bad thing for a big company like that."

Waste o' money. Q3 for free with so much more. Whoever is sincerely going to pay-to-play a shitty browser-based game needs to reconsider their wallet's feelings.

I'm going to upgrade to an account...

It's a personal preferance. Q3 has new no "hack protection"... at all. Qlive has hacks that work, but atleast an active programing team.

lets side by side...

Q3 - (more IMO) Hackers. Hacks that are older are still not caught. No active monitoring outside of demo opinions.

Qlive - (less IMO) Hackers. Hacks are newer since PB already had a library of things caught. Programmers that have the ability to actively monitor current hacks and ban the person/program. I'm not saying the system is perfect and they catch everything... but it's atleast active.

Q3 - Someone hacks, they are banned.... maybe. unless they have a friend who can back them, or IP changes, or lazy admins that do not ban.

Qlive - Someone hacks, their account is gone. They may make a new account... but the name that they hacked on is banned.... on every server globally.

Q3 - You can "test" hacks. private server or not. If you drop, you move on. No problems really.

Qlive - You can "test" hacks in servers... but if it is detected.... your "testing" excuse will not stand.

Okay you agree .32 and QL is different?

Well either way tad enjoys playing QL and therefore he will pay for an account.

It doesn't matter what is better it matters what you enjoy more. Some people prefer .16, some .32 and some QL.
