    I think the reason we don't have UCon is because 1) Epic works. and 2) the Unreal community has always been a bit more mature than any other community and organizing transcontinental events is harder for people that have jobs/lives/families.

    Don't try forcing people to pay for servers and not be able to put whatever they want on it. There are plenty vanilla non-IG TDM and CTF servers with only antitcc and/or utcomp packages required to d/l. Atari or epic or somebody hosted several vanilla servers without mapvote, but you just might not see a lot of people in them. If there was a larger number of active players that wanted vanilla servers, there would be more active vanilla servers.

    I'm pretty sure the "only display standard server" box is checked by default.

    There are plenty vanilla servers out there, just no one is playing in them, because there is a lack of players that like playing ut2004 default settings, that also play very frequently, enough to keep a server active. Inorder for a server to keep active, there needs to be a core group of players that go to it often to lure other players into the server. Servers with specific settings generate a core group of players that solely go to that server.

    But there are still lots of servers out there that are vanilla, except for TCC or utcomp that are very active, the reason being that they're quality servers that have little lag or p/l or are more exclusive to a type of player that plays frequently.

    The only way a newcomer is going to find a crowded vanilla game of ut2004 is in a demo server. The regulars that go to demo servers are there because the demo server is crowded, either that or they don't have the retail version. :D

    Don't try forcing certain settings down the throats of people that pay for there own servers.(had to say again :-])

    If they were to do anything to make it easier for people to play vanilla games, they should just make more advanced server browser settings. Don't be a tyrant. Spoiled ut followers wont stand for that. :D

    The above post = :lol: with the arnold quote

    As for this whole shim sham of a thread, yeah its crap that the figures are as low as they are, but there is a remedy for everything. Stay here and post, get to know everyone, and do the same thing with Atari's hooligans, then will find people to play with and hopefully have a good time at that. Like Worfy said, its not rocket science.
