    QLPP16 Site Update - January 22, 2013

    QUAKE LIVE Premium Pak 16 is now online. This update features three new arenas hailing from the QUAKE 3 Arena community, and play great under both our PQL and regular rulesets.

    Premium Arenas Added
    • Foolish Legacy:
    More than just a fan favorite, Foolish Legacy, by Richard 'swelt' Jacques, is often considered the pinnacle of Team Deathmatch design. Buttons, traps, lava, crates, water pools, and two powerups fill this TDM arena. Originally optimized for the QUAKE III Arena mod Challenge ProMode Arena, the arena formerly known in CPMA as 'cpm21' plays masterfully under both the standard and PQL rulesets, and rewards teamwork. Two major paths between power-ups are buttonized traps, requiring teammates to assist keeping the route viable as their comrades traverse them.

    Foolish Legacy joins the fray in QUAKE LIVE, and is accessible in Free For All, Team DeathMatch, Clan Arena, Freeze Tag, Domination, and Red Rover.
    • Use and Abuse:
    Created by FxR|jude (50chickens), Use and Abuse was inspired by the classic QUAKE 1 arena, The Bad Place. After its debut into the QUAKE III Arena mod Challenge ProMode Arena as 'cpm3a', Use and Abuse quickly became the most iconic battleground for CPM Duel players, and often featured in CPM frag videos such as 'CPMA Done by Vo0'. This two atrium arena features open high ceilings, leading to breathtaking lightning pins and successive mid-air rocket hits in the hands of adept combatants.

    Use and Abuse is supported in both standard and PQL rulesets, but excels in PQL Duel.
    • Wicked:
    In January of 2000, FxR|jude (50chickens), released a small Duel arena based on some of his previous QUAKE 2 Free For All designs. Over the course of the next year the map grew in popularity, was refined, and made it's first appearance in Challenge ProMode Arena as 'cpm1a': the first official duel map in the CPM map pool. Over the past 13 years, Wicked acted as the first arena most combatants battled on as they were first introduced to CPM Duel gameplay.

    Everyone on the QUAKE LIVE team would like to thank FxR|jude for allowing us the privilege of bringing Wicked to QUAKE LIVE, and know that it here too will be a treat for many players who wish to take up the challenge of PQL Duel.

    cool update...but the main issue is the connections to the servers are HORRIBLE lately...and i dont blame quake live its not you guys, with all STREAMING video on Netflix, Hulu, PSN, XBOX LIVE, Torrent downloading etc, these trunk lines just CANT handle it and the ISPS need to do something about it, Im in Ohio and im pinging like 60+ to VA which was 30 ping, tracert is like 32+ hops and that is on Time Warners crappy routing. A lot of people having lag issues VA/CHICAGO/DC its all the same hope something can be done. We need smooth clients back to fix the jittery/stuttery people from bad connections. Timenudge is completely broken tho i dont use it, i would like to when i got 70+ ping to compensate for the lag.

    Why not bring back more Ra3 maps , would love to see Drunken Mummy, RA3map 12s clan arena, god most of the RA3 maps are awesome, MoonMan, Ra3map11 arena 2....
