Hello everyone, and welcome to the first Ace of Spades Wiki Round-Up of 2014, the monthly newsletter bringing you all the latest news, events and competitions from the Ace of Spades and Wiki communities!


Wiki Quiz

Last time we asked what date Ace of Spades was released on Steam. The correct answer is December 12th, so congratulations to TntMatthew for answering correctly!

This weeks quiz question is...

"You're gonna sleep with the fishes, wise guy." - which class is this a quote from?

The answer can be found in-game 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 of the Wiki Round-Up. Good luck!

  • Improved anti spam measures
  • New edit successful messages
  • Navigation menu subsections are now collapsible
  • The login and signup pages have an improved look and feel

And much more!

Map of the Month

Big City is the first Map of the Month of 2014! This impressive urban map was created by [FR]Edern76 and Earl de Darkwood, and supports the Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Zombie, Multi-Hill, Occupation, VIP and Territory Control game modes. For more information on this map, check out it's page on the Wiki here. Honourable mention goes to Sniper City which was also nominated. For more information on Map of the Month, and to nominate a map for February, visit the Map of the Month page here.

New Poll

It's January 1st, which means it's time for a new poll! Last month's asked how much you've made use of the Ace of Spades Map Editor. 'Yes, I've used it and published a map' came out on top, getting a massive 16 votes.

This month's poll asks what your favourite update of 2013 was, so head over to the Main Page now to cast your vote. As always, suggestions for future poll questions can be posted in the Ace of Spades Wiki talk:Community portal.

Improved anti-spam measures

The Wiki's anti spam measures have been updated, so you should see a reduction in the amount of bot accounts created.

New Background

The Wiki's background has been updated. The previous background used images from an early, pre-release version of Ace of Spades whilst the new one features an image from the current build.
