Welcome to the MultiPlayer Quake Archive
Hello! Bonjour! Guten Tag! Ciao! Olá! God dag! Hyvää päivää! Goedendag! Ni Hao! Hei! Aloha!
If you are new to the site, hello and welcome! This is the archive for MPQ, a Quake deathmatch level review site that ran from 1996 to 2002. You'll find nearly 500 reviews with most of the maps available for download.

The title for this post pretty much sums things up :). The welcome box above explains everything you need to know.
I'd just like to say thanks to Vondur, RPG, DaZ and Biff for feedback in developing the site. If anyone is interested in reviewing the maps on the pending list, or has any suggestions, then drop me an email.
P.S. First person to find Dopefish wins a cookie.

5 to go ^

xen and Gom Jabbar have written these 5 reviews. A mixed batch of stinkers and good 'uns.
Evil spacehamsters and pink jellyfish by MutantBunny
Hatebreeder by QurneL
WerdDM2 - Cranial Dismemberment by E- werd
Unnamed (remix of yellow snow) by KrimZon
The Limbo Of Broken Ecstasies by Kim Vidal
The really odd one in the bunch is The Limbo Of Broken Ecstasies which is 5 years old, and is one of the few maps I refused to review (about 3 years ago).
If you have trouble downloading any of the maps thats because I've been unable to get proper FTP access to upload them. They will be sorted shortly.
4 weeks to go ^

xen has very kindly chipped in with some of the reviews.
MisDM12 - Terra Nova by MisYu
The Ravage II by ParboiL
Old Crater by ParboiL
Just a quick note regarding The Ravage II. It's a remake (retexturing to be more precise) of The Ravage which is a year older. I'm little bemused as to why ParboiL did it.
I now have my own personal website set up thanks to Sleepy and Vondur. There is some news on my Quake Frontend which will be out this decade. Also the #terrafusion stats have moved there.
The move to PQ is slow going. I have alot of work to do at my end before I put it on there. There is a huge amount of stuff to sort out.
Thank you ^

Thank you everyone for your kind words on here and on Qmap. It makes me feel warm and gooey (in a good way).
The state of play is as follows. The MPQ archive will be going on PlanetQuake. There is quite a bit to sort out so it'll take a while. I do intend though on correcting any broken links for maps (since I have them all, yes even the bad ones), and they'll most likely be going on FilePlanet.
Since #tf stats are of the utmost importance, all 3 of you will be glad to know SleepwalkR has very kindly provided me with hosting for my own site, so that’s where they will go.
Reviews wise, Drannerz need not worry. There will be some midweek. If anyone is interested in writing a review for a map on the pending list, so that the site can close with nothing pending, then just drop me an email.

I'm closing the site… for the final time :). Everything will disappear on May 30th. I'm looking into putting it somewhere permanent, but I’m not sure what will happen.
The reason? A lack of interest on my part. If I was being totally honest I've never really got back the enthusiasm I had when I was running the site first time around. Time wasn't really an issue; if I'd had the interest then there would have been more updates. I've found I spent more time away from my PC, which doesn't seem so odd when I spent 8 hours a day in front of one at work.
I must thank DaZ and Fat Controller (again) for their help. Shambler should probably get thanks too since he helped getting the site up and running a second time. As for the pending reviews, I'll see what I can do, but I make no promises. On the Quake coverage front, Religion Quake will be back soon so you'll not miss anything.

Expect some interesting news later on in the week.

I think Vondur is losing his touch. There were only 3 insults in his latest email to me, which were capitalistic ass, lazy bastard and BASTARD!!!! All of which means, its stats time kiddies!
