Im not sure if i really explained a lot of what i want to ask about the setup of the internet thing. Is there like different games all mixed together and just have like servers that people made kinda like cs?? Or is it kinda like sc and d2 where you just like joing games that are made??? I havent gotten the game yet and I kinda want to know cause i kinda like the setup for sc better than cs.

It would be more like cs (counter-strike?) in the way that you would have a giant master list of running servers to connect to as opposed to "ok Bob has his server running let's all connect" types found in other games.

The in-game browser lets you easily pick and choose the type of game you want to connect to as well.

You can filter out guns or force powers just by looking at the icons in each server name.

Yes, counter strike sorry im used to just saying cs, does it like take a while to join the games like cs?

Nope. It just has to connect to the server and load the map. Very little time.

Well it seems when i look at the maps tho there are a lot of different 1s would it be easier to dl the maps off of the internet or just dl them when u are going to join the game?

Better do d/l off the internet..... Because you can d/l it while ur doing other thigns...But if you d/l while your trying to join the game you are going to loose game time...

I DL all my maps from PC Game Mods (http://www.pcgamemods.com) I find navigation and the community more friendly over there.
