Ah, yah we differ.
But say you and I were in charge of developing the next patch.
Let's outline everything that was 1.02 and 1.03.
Now let's make everything that was changed (except for the removal of cheats, and bugs) server-side options.
Now let's add those options so the admins can change it and the clients can filter them in or out.
What do you think of that?
P.S. It looks like you are from England. Seems most of my English gaming friends know how to carry on a more intelligent and civil conversation than my fellow American ones. A pretty sad statement for America.
