Founded in 2000 by dirtbox and Puglet and succeeding the defunct Sparky and Piggy's Quake Newz, BesMella.Quake (its name a variation of that of the founders' hometown) quickly established itself as the leading source of news for the Australian QuakeWorld player. Helping it's early success was the array of hand-picked authors who would not only update the community on all matters Quake but acquaint the audience with personal anecdotes in their columns.

Finally becoming defunct in 2011 after 11 years of QuakeWorld News, BesMella.Quake is reborn in 2012 running mini-QW tournaments in Europe. []
