Dedicated Servers are Now Available!

They have arrived! At last, one of the community's most asked for features, dedicated servers, have been added to Ace of Spades! The update allows players to host their very own dedicated server through Multiplay's ClanForge, and customise it to their exact specifications. Dedicated servers are even more customisable than Custom Matches, allowing players to use the Gangster Class in any Game Mode, enable friendly fire, disable team balancing and more. The update also allows players to moderate their servers, and give trusted players the ability to kick rulebreakers, another much requested feature. For more details, check out the official announcement here, and the dedicated server documentation here.

Ace of Spades Wiki 1 Year Anniversary!


Celebrations-Banner.png


The Ace of Spades Wiki celebrated it's 1 Year Anniversary on July 4th! We've come a long way over the past year, starting with just a few empty pages to become a valuable resource for all Ace of Spades players, with hundreds of articles and thousands of images. To celebrate, we produced this page looking back on the past year.


Map of the Month Changes

Map of the Month has been relaunched! The nominations and voting process has been streamlined and simplified to make it easier to take part. Additionally, to make the competition more relevant, and to highlight the best new maps, only maps made during that month can be nominated for Map of the Month. For example, to be nominated for August's Map of the Month, a map must be created during August.

To vote for July's Map of the Month click here, and to nominate a map for August, click here.

Now Running MediaWiki 1.23!


We have recently been updated to MediaWiki 1.23, the latest major release of the software. The update brings a variety of tweaks and updates including improvements to Special:RecentChanges and Special:Contributions, the ability to link to specific revisions (E.g. Special:Diff/6581/6580) and more.


New Poll


Polls.png
It's time for a new poll! Last month we asked whether you were in an Ace of Spades Clan. It was a close one, with "No, and I've never been in a clan" getting 35 votes, but "Yes" coming just slightly behind with 29. This month we ask if you've played on a Community Run or Dedicated Server. Head on over to the Main Page to vote now!

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!
