Quake live stats not updating
"Today marks a new beginning for Quake Live," id Software said.Quake Live, arguably the most enduring free-to-play first-person shooter, is no longer free-to-play.That's fine, but as Kotaku notes, not all is well in paradise.For starters, it's unclear whether id Software or publisher Bethesda ever gave forewarning that the game will now attract a US charge – not that it really matters to current players anyway, since anyone with the game in their Steam library already won't have to pay."By retiring our services and subscription service, all players now have the same benefits and features in-game," id Software wrote on Quake Live's Steam page."All players can participate in map voting processes, have full access to customize their game to the same degree as others, and have the ability to run their own Listen Servers and configure their matches to their own liking."If you already have Quake Live installed on Steam, you can continue to play without needing to pay.
id Software's PC game Quake Live has changed business models.The full update has been detailed on the Steam Community: listen server support, Steamworks integration, Steam Workshop for custom maps and game modes, and a whole load of bug fixes and tweaks are included in the patch.For some people, this update is a welcome change to the game and is being seen as a return to the simplicity of Quake III.However, others are angry at the decision to wipe all in-game statistics.There are reports that friends lists, preferred servers, and clans have been cleared, and most worryingly that active subscriptions to the game have been removed with no word of any sort of refund.
