    I was sceptical about opinion that GameSpy ruins the game. But recently I've changed my mind.

    In short, this's a bug that makes some servers (roughly one sixth) invisible when the game client is running under limited, non-administrator account. It appeared around November 2009 (so it's a regression), and hasn't been fixed so far.

    Epic Games and GameSpy refuse to fix it, despite it's clear that it's their fault. The game hasn't been so much of success, but this thing ruins the game even further.

    I Pointed that out the Day it happened..when they did their so-called "Upgrade" And Flak Banned me for pointing out the obvious...that Gamespy and Now Epic Suck.

    I sent them Stupid Packet Captures Etc Etc, I haven't changed anything on my servers/Client in over a year and Now its a "ClientSide" Issue. HAHAHA

    What a Joke.

    UT3 is a joke, the biggest one is that a few people still care about it. :)

    I only reinstalled the game once since v1.0. Don't know what you are talking about.

    You're like the high school senior that can't wait to graduate and runs his mouth on how much his school sucks. Then after graduation ends up hanging out around the outside of the school because he has nothing to do.

    There was a post on the admin mailing list that if you create a new login and use a NEW email address that gamespy doesn't have that it fixes the issue. Does anyone know if that does indeed fix the issue?

    Well f***ity f*** all a y'all.

    I'm guessing that using Xfire's server browser will bypass this problem. I really like using game-monitor.com, though. It shows more servers than Xfire does. It can't determine your ping, but you can have it display only servers within some distance from you. There's another one called gametracker.com that shows some nice server stats (like a pie chart of what maps are played), but it doesn't update as f***ing frequently as game-monitor.

    You're an idiot. :tup:

    I was one of the last few long time Unreal veterans that always tried to support the game, from running FragBU to hosting other unreal events, I only gave up on it all four months ago. But go ahead and keep saying silly things and keep playing ****ty ut3.

    Regardless of what anyone says, you've certainly earned the right to take up the stance you have regarding UT3. I know you tried & tried 'till you were blue in the face & found it was no good, as did my friend, Nick. I still play occasionally, but I understand where you're coming from.

    And certainly, that lousy, $@&$ing Gamespy login garbage couldn't have been any help.

    I don't know what Epic was thinking. Unreal Tournament is NOT Battlefield 2.

    To be frank you should be eternally grateful that long time regulars like JD still care enough to grace you with their presence. The fact that he put up with this crap game for so long is a true testament to how much he cares.

    And now he feels the bitterness because of wasted time and efforts, and trying to compensate it by demotivating others, right?
    To be honest, I feel the same, too.
