That stealthy sock organized a Twitter-exclusive map jam this weekend. Whether it was to restrict the number of participants or clamp down on excessive JAM HYPE, who knows...
What we do know is that the theme implies some sort of old skool Quake homage, and it's been released right here
And the mappers are rumored to be:
Go play it!
Thanks to Func_Msgboard for the heads up!

If you're like me and like to see gameplay of something before you give it a shot (except back when I was a kid!) then you'll enjoy this: gameplay footage of Q3KnockOut. One of Instagib (best thing to come out of Epic!) and three of FFA. Click “Read More” to watch the videos. Head to moddb.com to give it a download. For more information head to the Q3KnockOut website.
Q3knockOut changes your Quake experience in a very unique way: Scoring is not done by directly hit and kill your enemy, but by pushing him out of the area into the void or other deadly spots in a map like lava and such. Q3knockOut comes with new weapon and item behaviors, a very fast gameplay, new ways for cool jumps and moves. As maps you should only use very open ones like the space maps. All standard gametypes are supported: Deathmatch, Team-Deathmatch, Tournament and Capture The Flag. Q3knockOut is a server side only modification.

Up until several days ago the fastest anyone ever beat Doom 2 was in 23:25, by a gamer named Looper in 2010. Now it's a long time. Zero Master has beaten the game in 23:03. 20 seconds doesn't seem like much but every fraction of a second counts when you're playing through 30 levels on ULTRA VIOLENCE!
Thanks to chimueloeldragon2011 for pointing this out on idtechforums. You can read the article about it on IGN or you can watch the gameplay video by clicking “Read More”.

Hey, a mod where killing doesn't help your score (yeah! I might win!) In Q3knockout you push the other guy in to the viod! :) This is an older mod that has recently been tweaked so all us Quakers can enjoy some new features (and hear about it as I never heard about it). Some new features worth mentioning: Dynamic Bot skill, sticky grenades (vs super bouncy ones) and Quad pickup is announced globally. Click "Read More" to see the 1.5.0 changelog.
It's a server side mod so you don't need it if you just want to play. You can download it on moddb.com or from it's own site.
You can play this new version of Q3knockOut online 24/7 on this server:

A contest for The Dark Mod has resulted in a new mission for fans to play. Named “Briarwood Cathedral.” The story behind the map is as follows: “I met a pal of mine at a local watering hole. Ole' Freedo has news about the Briarwood Cathedral out on Waterford Island. Seems a lot has been going on that is on the Supernatural side?
I find that hard to believe, but it might give me an edge to loot the place. There is also a rumor of old Spanish, Pirate treasure. Since tonight is All Hallows Eve, It's as good of a night that I could ask for.
Let's see what Briarwood has to offer.”
