Quake Live Thread: Open Beta Is On Like Donkey Kong

What the fuck?
Quake Live is a browser based re-release of Quake 3 Arena. I'm sure you've all heard of it by now.

Why the fuck?
Because it's super fun. Why else?

How the fuck?
Quake Live is now in Open Beta. Simply go to the website and sign up. It'll make you install a browser plug-in, play a practice match, download all of the shit, and then you're good to get your ass handed to you.

Who the fuck?
If you want some people to play with, the following is a list of all the people who have given me their user names in game. Add them and maybe we can all play CTF together!

    The main reason for the OP of the thread I made not being updated is that I'm lazy as fuck.

    EDIT: The image you put in your post is stupid. Use this one:

    Lewie, I've added you to my QL friends list.

    Whilst I appreciate the gesture, now I have an empty list in the OP :(

    And Peewi there's no way I'm using that image. Crazy anime characters pointing and shouting > all.

    Damn it. I finally got my BETA key after about 7 months of waiting. I just registered, but no activation code has arrived in my inbox. It's been nearly an hour now and I think I may be out of luck.

    How quickly did you QLB users get the activation code? What sort of e-mail domain do you use?

    they say they do it hourly, but in my experience it sometimes takes longer. Have you checked your spam folder?

    I don't remember how much time passed between signing up on the website and getting in, but it was a long time. I'm using Gmail and it did not get treated as spam.

    Did it initially under my Yahoo account. Think I may have done it around 11:30 or so. Nothing yet. Beginning to think I should just go on with my day and check later tonight when I get home after midnight.

    So does QBL use a friends system so I can join other PA'ers, or is it just randomly joining pub servers?

    There is a friends list and you can join your friends's games.

    Yeah, where does the invite come to? I haven't gotten it through my email yet.

    Also, thanks very much for sending the invite :) I just hope I actually receive it.

    Of course you're going to receive it by email. Where else would you get it with the info have provided?

    You're right, and I'm ashamed of whoever decided to tackle the list in their own personal way. I would invite you myself, but I haven't been given my invites yet :(

    I seem to have some weird punkbuster issue, and I get booted from online games. I tried uninstalling and resinstalling, but no change.

    I can play against bots fine...

    I got into the QBL. God I'm terrible at this. Even a decade ago, I was never that great at Quake 3.

    That being said my name is "FancyLad" on QBL. Give me an invite anyone. But be gentle, because I kinda stink at it.

    Ok one thing with this thread, don't keep spamming requests. Put your name down and wait, you'll get added to the list and when it's your turn, it's your turn. We will try and keep this moving and make sure everyone gets their invites?
