    The standard server check box is great, but what if players only want to play with a specific type of mutator, but not another type of mutator. The filtering system is too hard to utilize because there are several versions of the same mutators.

    It would be nice if mutator makers had the option to classify their mod as a certain type of mut for server browser filtering purposes. This way players that only want to play on a server with an anti-hack mutator on it but nothing else can simply filter to only show servers classified by the mutator maker as anticheat or AntiTCC, no need to stick in a million mutator versions.

    There shouldn't be preset categories, because someone might prefer a certain anticheat mutator over an other.

    This shouldn't mask the filename of the mut, and players should still be able to filter for specific mutators not just a set of mutators. Or they could even filter for a certain set of mutators, but just excluding a specifc mut within that set of mutators.

    This would make the server browser more practical.

    Edit:There wouldn't be a need to havemut makers to make several different sets for the same set of mutators. Just one word for a set of mutators. No need to have mutiple different groups assigned to the same mutator, if it will bog down the server browser. Just one group for a certain set of mutators and only assign one set of mods to a mutator if it will bog down the server browser.

    There is already an option to do this, but it's poorlt doccumented and nearly unused, also it relies on a name feild so mutator makers might end up using different mutator type names for the same mutator type, i would definitley like to see this improved.

    The server browser should also have playercount and ping filters, and should definitely improve mutator filters. Epic has said that they are planning on revolutionizing the multiplayer aspects of the game.
