Servers Swell as the Quake Live Beta is Opened to the Public
Since the Beta was opened to the public, the Quake Live servers appear to have become seriously congested. I have been logged in and queuing for an hour, and am now number 18992 in line. And you thought home affairs was bad? Many users are reporting a wait of around two or three hours in the Quake Live Beta queues.
My pc died, logged on again and I am number 64339

What's the point of playing if there's no Sa server up?
It's still worth checking out, see what changes they made to Quake 3 and such.

27-02-2009, 07:39 AM

do you guys have to queue just to get onto the servers or what???? coz thats just insane why cant they just extend their server database it would be so much easier for everyone....

Was busy doing the test match, was pwning the PC 32-6, and accidentally closed the browser :(

Yes it goes really quickly now, id software are on the money.
27-02-2009, 09:32 PM
sadly my line is probably to slow to even try
27-02-2009, 09:36 PM
I tried it earlier on my 56k line, it was loading the skill test map and download time was sitting at one and a half hours. Not too bad, but will be WAYYY better on broadband.
27-02-2009, 09:37 PM
with this I can play Quake anywhere... with fast internet... xD
27-02-2009, 09:55 PM
Quite brilliant hey? We just need local servers like Tinman said, latency issues will suck the fun right out of it.
28-02-2009, 04:58 PM

28-02-2009, 06:53 PM

12-03-2009, 07:55 AM
