Hello everyone, and welcome to the first issue of the Wiki Round-Up, a fortnightly newsletter bringing you all the latest news, events and competitions from the Ace of Spades and Wiki communities.

Events and Competitions

Screenshot Competition

It's time for our first competition! Submit your favourite Ace of Spades 1.0 screenshots, and the best will be featured on the main page of the Wiki. It could be just about anything - a map you've made, you're favourite kill (or death!), a funny scene or an epic base. If you want to enter, simply post your pic on the talk page for this article. Submissions close at 6 pm BST / 1 pm EDT / 10 am PDT on Friday July 26th, after which the community will vote for their favourite entries. The submission with the most votes will be featured on the wiki homepage the following week. Good luck!

Wiki Quiz

This weeks quiz question is:

How many blocks are used to construct a Super Dome prefab?

The answer can be found somewhere on the Wiki, or in-game. You can submit your answers on the talk page or the Wiki's official Ace of Spades forums thread. Those who answer correctly will be featured in the next issue of the Wiki Round-Up.

Wiki News

Well, it's certainly been an exciting couple of weeks! July 4th saw the launch of the Wiki with just a skin and a few test pages, and in a little under two weeks we've gotten over 100 articles, 500 pages, 300 files, 1,000 edits and almost 10,000 total page views. Thank you to everyone who has helped us achieve this goal, be it by making edits, uploading files or making suggestions - it really is appreciated.

New Poll

We now have a poll on the Wiki! The current question will be up for two weeks, so visit the Main Page now to submit your vote. If you have any ideas for future questions, then please do post them in the community portal.


Wiki Twitter

The Wiki now has a twitter account @aceofspadeswiki which you can follow to hear about all the latest news and updates, or just to have a bit of fun - check it out!

And More

In addition to these updates, numerous smaller changes have been made to the wiki in the past two weeks including an enhanced editor, background on the personal links bar to make it more readable, an improved link colour to help distinguish links from regular text and more. Keep an eye on the changelog in the community portal to keep up to date.

Ace of Spades News

Map Editor Beta

July 4th saw not only the launch of the Wiki, but of the Ace of Spades Map Editor Beta too. The beta gives players the chance to test drive the next Ace of Spades update and give their feedback. If you haven't got involved already, then take a look at this post on the official Ace of Spades forums to learn how.

On the Ace of Spades Facebook page the update was described as being "in the late stages of testing and bug fixing" and that the ETA was "not too long", so hopefully we'll be seeing the final launch some time soon!


Steam Summer Sale

Ace of Spades is currently 50% off in the Steam Summer Sale until July 22nd, so if you haven't picked up the game or the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre Pack then now is the perfect time to do so.

Steam Trading Cards

Ace of Spades now has Steam Trading Cards! Visit this thread on this Ace of Spades forums to learn more.

That's just about it for this issue. If you have any suggestions for what you'd like to see in future issues of the Wiki Round-Up, then please do post in the community portal, or our Ace of Spades forum thread - I'd love to hear them.

Until next time,
