28/05/07 Less than 10 days 'till w00t ii + site changes

The site has had a bit of a make-over as you've probably noticed, in order to make room for the new map pack, I've re-ordered a lot of the content/links. Since there is more than one map pack already (including the competition pack), the 'map pack' link (referencing the original EXTREME w00t map pack, has become 'map packs', and now leads you to a page with details on both.

Other changes include the addition of new video content under the tutorials section. The videos will continue to be expanded on , as and when it gets recorded, but so far there are some quick tips on the fastest routes for Phobos w00t, Castle w00tenstein, and w00ting in the sky with insta among others (8 in total).

05/05/07 A month 'till w00t II release!

Behind the scenes the team is working furiously to bring you the most awesome w00t experience ever, from a brand new weapon / gametype mutator to a boatload of new maps!

Here is a little teaser video of some of the maps in action - more to follow soon!

17/03/07 return of the w00t. (And Happy St. Patricks Day!)

After a short absence, some differences with webhosts, new servers, PHP/MySQL errors, cash flow and various factors that have conspired to send the w00t to an early grave, it's now back and bigger than ever!

A big thanks to MrK , who is currently going through all the PHP/Database stuff in the back end of the website and fixing it up again, to Kingster from, for setting up the forums, and lastly to Switch' for his hard work on coding for the next w00t pack release!

21/06/06 w00t Wednesdays

Every Wednesday night, as a way to break up the week and relieve stress, the regulars gather for a night of EXTREME w00t action.

Come join in, from 9pm GMT onwards for some high speed instagibbing action, all skill levels welcome.


Due out imminently, the Unreal Anthology is one hefty bundle, containing all that is Unreal related, in one handy box!

Starting with the groundbreaking , critically acclaimed Unreal, the pack included every Unreal related release to date, Unreal (including the Return to Na Pali expansion pack) , Unreal Tournament GOTYE, Unreal II, Unreal Tournament 2004 (Editors Choice Edition).

With all this bundled into one handy box, you have no excuse to miss out on the Unreal experience, and more importantly, to miss out on the w00t Experience!

We're excited to continue working with Midway to expand the audience for the Unreal franchise," said Mark Rein, VP, Epic. "A whole new set of players will get to play these fantastic games for the first time and those who have already played them will be able to get the definitive boxed set for a great low price. Midway is going to publish the future of Unreal, with Unreal Tournament 2007. So it's only fitting that they're helping us pay homage to the rich history of the Unreal universe as well."

Unreal Anthology is scheduled to ship this autumn, for about twenty quid.
