In an interview given to VG247, answering about Carmack's QuakeCon keynote mentioning that Quakelive isn't the expected success, Todd Hollenshead is implicitly saying that new things should happen soon to Quakelive:
"The thing for us with Quake Live is that there’s one specific thing that can be isolated here. The in-game advertising model hasn’t delivered as promised. And I don’t think that’s specific to Quake Live. [...] We changed up stuff with the subscription model, we added ads on the website, we have video advertising – just things like that to bolster up what we’ve lost. So I still think the jury hasn’t come in and given the verdict yet. As long as I’ve got an opportunity to try and do something with Quake Live – because I love the game – [I'll do it]. The game is an entertainment success, so now we have to figure out how to make the business model work."
Will those things be bad or good for our game ? Are they new in-game features or heavier marketing support or something else ? What do you think and what do you expect from Todd to revivify QL and attract new players ?
