ClanBase introduces QUAKELIVE

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

ClanBase is proud to add the web based first person shooter, QUAKELIVE, to our growing list of games. This wouldn't be possible without the help of id Software, we would like to express our deepest thanks to id Software for their support. We will be launching several competitions for the shooter's various game types very soon.

ClanBase will kick off with the Duel and TDM modes using the traditional ClanBase cup system. We suggest you to check out ClanBase frequently because signups for these cups will be openning in the very near future.

While you wait for the cups and idle on the QuakeNET IRC network in #clanbase.ql, it may be a good idea to register your QUAKE LIVE name tag on ClanBase, under the GUID's section. Please note that we may be using PunkBuster software in the future, which may require a PB GUID to be added.

If you don't have a QUAKELIVE account yet head over to www.quakelive.com and register today!

What is QUAKE LIVE?

QUAKE LIVE is a free game supported by advertisement that looks very much like Quake 3 Arena, but unlike its predecessor, it's played via web browser. The special browser plug-in is very well optimized so that even low budget desktop systems are able to run it at a stable 100+ fps, however it does require faster CPU and graphic card than Quake 3 Arena.

Maps, game modes and weapons all come from Q3 and Q3: Team Arena. Some maps have been remade and altered accordingly to beta testers feedback. There are 6 game modes included for online game play: Duel, Team Deathmatch, Capture The Flag, Free For All, Clan Arena and Instagib (FFA). Every online match played on a ranked server is stored for one month along with its relevant information such as frags, deaths and weapon accuracy, which makes the game even more interesting.

More detailed information about QUAKE LIVE can be found in the QUAK LIVE guide on www.quakelive.com.
