Ace of Spades Wiki:Wiki Round-Up/9
Hey everyone and welcome to the Ace of Spades Wiki Round-Up, the monthly newsletter bringing you all the latest news, events and competitions from the Ace of Spades community.
In the last issue we asked which class says "You're gonna sleep with the fishes, wise guy." The correct answer is the Gangster, so congratulations to TntMatthew and Gamerzap for getting it right.
This week's quiz question is...
How many templates (baseplates) are there in the Ace of Spades map editor?
The answer can be found somewhere in-game or 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!
