For this week’s Quake Champions Closed Beta test event, we are focusing on monitoring game stability with new backend services in place. In doing so, we will be holding a shorter test event, which will end on Saturday at 5pm ET. The patch being deployed for this build will only include minor fixes, however, we are working on a larger update that will address game performance issues, and this weekend’s test is a prerequisite for that update. We appreciate your continued feedback as it’s helped us to identify stability issues that we’re working to resolve. Thank you to all of our testers for helping us to create an even better Quake Champions.

Next Gen Console, PC, and Mac Release Targeted for Early 2012
Valve, creators of best-selling game franchises (such as Counter-Strike, Half-Life, Left 4 Dead, Portal, and Team Fortress) and leading technologies (such as Steam and Source), today announced Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO).
Targeted for release via Playstation Network, Xbox Live Arcade, and Steam (for PC and Mac) in early 2012, CS: GO will expand upon the team-based action gameplay that it pioneered when it was launched exactly 12 years ago (CS beta 1, August 1999).
CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.
"Counter-Strike took the gaming industry by surprise when the unlikely MOD became the most played online PC action game in the world almost immediately after its release in August 1999," said Doug Lombardi at Valve. "For the past 12 years, it has continued to be one of the most-played games in the world, headline competitive gaming tournaments and selling over 25 million units worldwide across the franchise. CS: GO promises to expand on CS' award-winning gameplay and deliver it to gamers on the PC as well as the next gen consoles and the Mac."
CS: GO is being developed by Valve in cooperation with Seattle-based Hidden Path Entertainment. The title is targeted for release in early 2012 and will be playable at this year's PAX Prime and Eurogamer Expo 2011.
<@SyncError|home> Also unfortunately we've had to put a great amount of time into a certain task that we'll be able to reveal soon (next week?) that at this time we haven't been able to discuss. Once that is behind us we should be able to focus on the issue more.
<@SyncError|home> We're going to be replacing our harddrives soon on the server hosting the db, with SSDs. That should hopefully greatly improve things.
Its random chatter, no guarantee of anything actually being next week, and no idea what it is, but there is *something* going on.
