Quake Live launched yesterday and has had over 100,000 registrations in the first six hours.

When I joined, the queue to get onto the servers was 5,000. It peaked at around 20,000 and then the servers gave up the ghost (not great news for GNi, the hosting provider).

It’s not that surprising that Quake Live is so popular. Let’s hope they can get over their teething problems quickly.
