    Comon guys... Overkill, Thunderstruck and Theatre of Pain would get this game going again. Try it out and if it doesn't work, I'll buy lunch.

    Problem is all content used to be free in the past, but it wasn't enough to pay the bills let alone make profit. The second step was to implement a subscription based business model, that didn't work much because some of the most popular maps were around so 24/7 ca-only people didn't bother, which sadly is a big portion of players. The reason maps are locked to standard users (that don't have pro account users on their friend list), with a rotation and no callvote, is an incentive for them to pay and in the end finance the game.

    We all know the game is much more fun on those weekends with all content unlocked for everyone, but it is not profitable. Part of that experience is available to premium users and mostly all of it to pro users, both considering it's obviously easier to play the mod and map you want if standard users can join public or private servers without needing to pay or befriend someone.

    I personally am happy we don't have to suffer through the same 3-4 maps, day after day, month after month. Yes, not all maps are classics, and some have their quirks, but it's still Quake. I like the variety.

    Well, that's your choice. Just keep in mind that paying is what keeps this game alive and that "free" in Q3 only meant that a few people paid a lot instead.

    Well, last day with a few decent ctf maps in a standard server, I wonder how much damage will be dealt in the next rotation.
