Submission + - Changing the rules of a 15 year old game: Quake Live update causes controversy (redbull.com)

An anonymous reader writes: As iD Software aims for a larger, more mainstream audience for its free-to-play shooter Quake Live on Steam, big changes are afoot. A new update has been pushed out this week in run up to the release on Valve's download service which adds some new, more beginner friendly features to the game, which is based largely on the classic 1999 Quake III: Arena. These include new weapon load outs and timer icons indicating when the all important item spawns are about to occur — and they've been met with hostility from longtime players who prefer the 'purist' rules of old and the duel format. As the writer points out however, these rules sets are not going away, and if the update helps attract more elite players to the gamer, it could breathe new life into what is technically a decades old game.
