Hello everyone and welcome to issue 10 of the Ace of Spades Wiki Round-Up, the monthly newsletter bringing you all the latest news, events and competitions from across the Ace of Spades community.


Wiki Quiz

Last issue we asked how many blocks it takes to build a Zombie Head construct. It takes 446 blocks, so congratulations to Gamerzap for answering correctly.

This week's quiz question is...

Including the Flare Block, how many Constructs does the Engineer have access to?

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

Where am I?

In the last issue, we showed you this image:


Unfortunately, no-one managed to guess where it was taken! It is actually from The Colosseum map, in it's extensive network of underground tunnels.

Here is this week's image:


As always, simply post which map you think this was taken on in the discussion page for this issue, and those who answer correctly will be featured in the next issue. Good luck!

Mumble Mornings


Mumble Mornings are a weekly event where we gather in Marisa Kirisame's Mumble (voice chat) server for Ace of Spades and banter. Last week saw some Zobmie Gangsters on the preview dedicated servers, followed by some old school action on Ace of Spades 0.52. These are always a good laugh, so if you'd like to come along take a look at the thread here.


Ace of Spades Livestreams

Take a look at the community calendar for this month's Ace of Spades livestreams.



Map of the Month

Map of the Month is now open to all maps! Previously, a map had to have an article on the Wiki to be nominated for Map of the Month. This requirement has now been lifted, so any map may be nominated so long as it works on Ace of Spades 1.x. In addition to this, any map that wins map of the month will now be featured on the Ace of Spades Community Homepage, as well as the Main Page of the Wiki, giving it even more exposure!

April's Map of the Month is Supersize Yard. This creative map is a sequel to the much loved Supersize House, and is packed full of easter eggs. Can you find them all?

To learn more about this map, take a look at it's Wiki article here, or it's Steam workshop page here.

Nominations for May's Map of the Month are now open until April 15th. Take a look at our Map of the Month for more information.

Article of the Month

April's Article Of The Month is Capture the Flag. The detailed article features background on the Game Mode, tactics, scores and more. Check it out here.

New Poll

It's a new month, so that means it's time for a new poll. Last month's poll asked how long you have been playing Ace of Spades for. It seems that many visitors to the Wiki are Ace of Spades veterans, with 'More than 1 year' getting a massive 23 votes.

This month's poll asks if you've played on the Ace of Spades Dedicated Server Preview. Head on over to the Main Page to vote now.

Thank You

Thank you to Clonerex123, Firstlinsas, Gamerzap, Marisa Kirisame, Mooneyy2, TntMatthew and Travas2 for your contributions to the Wiki this past month. It really is appreciated.

MediaWiki Upgrades

The Wiki has been updated to MediaWiki 1.22.4, then 1.22.5, which offers various tweaks and bug fixes.


Dedicated Server Preview


The Ace of Spades Dedicated Server Preview has arrived! Players can now access the preview servers which are currently being ran by Old Flads, Marisa Kirisame and Count. For more information, take a look at the page here.

Community Q&A

The Jagex staff recently took part in a Q&A, where they answered some of the community's top questions. You can view there responses in the video here (starts around the 2 minute mark).


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