Quake Live Services Detailed

While we may not know when Quake Live will leave beta testing, we now know what network they will be using, as infrastructure provider GNi announces they will be providing the hosting services for id Software's subscription-free online shooter. While the announcement doesn't indicate when the game will launch, it does outline the social networking services it will include: "Every element of the experience, including friends lists and communication, player skill matching, sponsored events and tournaments, stats tracking, and even the game itself is accessed and delivered free of charge through the web browser."

No mod support means no pretentious "pro" mods like CPMA or Q4Max, which screw around with movement, weapon-switching speeds and a host of utterly pointless changes which make their servers incompatible with regular servers to divide an already niche community.

Amen to that!
