Global Ops Update

An update to the Global Operations Message Forum (thanks Kicking Myself) by Dan McBride, a producer on the tactical shooter, offers thoughts about their public beta test. After thanking those who've participated, he apologizes for the serious shortage of high quality servers that was caused by unanticipated demand, describes how this has been remedied, explains why some servers may still be laggy, and describes their ongoing attempts to improve the gameplay experience based on user feedback.

If I had to hazard a guess on the reason for the relatively large amount of passworded servers would be that there are a large amount of CS clans who are "testing" it to see if it passes muster (on their own and by request from Craves marketing dept.).

There are probably a LOT of dissatisfied honest clans who are tired of waiting for someone to come up with a magic bullett for the hacking involved with the HL engine. Theres also the undeniable appeal of the weapons and electronics systems and its potential for tournament play.

finally, its like anything else in life like your car, clothes or your get sick of the same thing day after day and want something new
