Ace of Spades Halloween!

Three terrifyingly terrific Halloween themed maps have been added to all official Zombie mode servers for a limited period in the latest Ace of Spades update. The maps were created by Ace of Spades mapper MrDisproportionateResponse as part of the Halloween Mapping Competition community event. To find out more about them, visit our Halloween Maps article.

As part of the event, the community cast their vote and chose Draculas Castle as their favourite of the three Halloween maps. This great map is both massive and full of spooky details, and definitely worth trying out.

Cooonar is starting a community run video series. Send in your Ace of Spades clips, and the best will be features in a video every Saturday. For more details, check out the video below.

Map of the Month

The results are in, and the Ace of Spades community has voted Underground Wars as the best map made during September! This unique map by WoopDoge <i3D> and [-Only-] LetsPlay1196 <i3D> is set entirely in an underground subway system, and perfect for anyone looking for something a little bit different. Check out it's Steam Workshop page here.

Marksman is November's Article of the Month! This is one of the Wiki's most visited pages, not surprising considering the popularity of the Marksman class. The page gives you an overview of his weapons and equipment, constructs, tactics, tips on defeating other classes and loads more. Check it out here.

Nominations for December's Article of the Month are now open. Visit our Article of the Month page for more details.


MediaWiki 1.23.6 Update

We have recently been updated to MediaWiki 1.23.6, which brings various small tweaks and bug fixes.


New Poll
Polls.png
It's time for a new poll! Last month we asked if you'd tried out modding yet. It seems that our readers are a creative bunch, because "Yes, I've created my own mod(s) and tried out those made by others" came out on top! This month we're asking which of the Halloween maps is your favourite. Head on over to the Main Page to vote now!


Thank You!

Thank you to Pauliux00 and TntMatthew for your contributions over the past month - it's appreciated!

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!
