As an owner of a popular CyberCafe I must let you know: If you want this game to succeed as I KNOW it is capable of doing then you MUST make Net games viewed on the LAN list for people who are actually on LAN. This is the ONLY way for it to become TRULY popular in Gaming Center/CyberCafes. This is a big reason CS was a massive success. You need to understand that making it LAN only means the server will be dead or full of stupid lil bots. Making it Net means LAN players have a horendous time finding it without it being on the LAN list. So PLZ follow CS, UT2k4, and COD and make this game viewable on the LAN list for LAN players connecting to a Net game which is hosted from the LAN. I already have tons of people buying the game, but that fatal design mistake needs to be changed ASAP if it is to grow in popularity. And of course, as has been said, you also need admin control because cheaters/bigots/etc WILL hit these servers soon enough. Trust me on these things, please. I also strongly recommend a favorites list, a "stop" button, and a much better scroll bar on the server list.
