Don't know if this idea is worth it, but is there a way that the practice games, could become an offline feature that people can use so the servers don't take so much of a battering. If people were allowed to play practice as an offline function it would allow them to play anytime but it would also cause less people to leave actual games because they will be able to trial their games elsewhere not when other players actually want to play an online game.

Can't. People could abuse it if it wasn't server side. Unless they made it give no IP or XP but then I doubt ANYONE would use practice matches outside of actually practicing / tournament matches.


But that's what they're for...

Also, emulate GameSpy Arcade? Is that a joke? That service is BEYOND HORRIBLE. Try playing a game like Fallout Tactics on it... good luck trying to actually get to the "playing" phase!


honestly I always thought that practice games should be worth no IP/XP. I mean they could still make an offline version of a practice game that can be 1vbots and gives no points.

Why does this keep having to occur? Does the official server run Windows 95 or something?

They removed the requirement to have a certain number of players in practice games a few days ago.

I like how no one mentions how normal games are basically unplayable, unless you think flipping a coin is a good way to decide who wins. The lag is that bad...

edit: I guess I should mention I have around 60ms ping solid, so it's NOT me.

edit2: I also load maps quicker than anyone I've played with so far...so deff not a horsepower issue either.

Is plenty. Enough to run all the latest and greatest in 1680x1050 with more or less max gfx settings. i.e. BFBC2, SC2, Crysis, Arma....need I go on? ;P
