Who are we?

We'll reveal you everything.

BaseQ was initially created as a french clan created in 2010, known in several popular fast-paced shooters such as QuakeWorld, DOOM, Shootmania or Half-Life 1.

We then started hosting game servers in 2013 for competitive retro-shooters and games our team played on. We were the #1 choice of servers for several community events and european tournaments.

In 2016, we decided to stop our competitive team but only kept the servers alive for a few games we had a strong impact on the community. That is, until today, where our servers are stronger than ever, focusing on bringing many retro-shooters communities back alive.


  • We want to help older popular videogames to not be forgotten by creating different servers, tools, mods, and maps.
  • We desire to create a community focused on retro shooters with regular events.
  • We want to provide high-quality community servers where players of all skills can have fun, from a fun & casual to competitive environment.


We host servers for...

Quake (QuakeWorld)

Quake 2

Quake 3 Arena (Dreamcast, PC)

DOOM (Zdaemon)

Half-Life (Steam)

Half-Life: Opposing Force (Steam)

Prey (2006)

What makes BaseQ great?

Our servers offer the following:

  • High-Speed downloads through HTTP(S).*
  • Competitive-ready settings.
  • Quality maps ONLY!
  • Servers with low uptimes: no more unusual physics!**
  • Security patches against known attacks.
  • And of course, we always take advices from the community to make them even greater.
* Only if applicable. Quake 3 Arena users have to use Quake3e or ioQuake3 in order to get HTTP downloads. Quake II users have to use a port like R1Q2 or Q2Pro to get HTTP downloads.
** All BaseQ servers are rebooting at 6AM (GMT+1) every Monday.
