There's no server browser and every game is organized through a matchmaking process. The game itself is then hosted on a dedicated server instead of by one of the players' computers.

Which, for a game like this, is great. It's quick and dumb fun, and when I want quick and dumb fun, I don't want to sift through a bunch of servers running 24/7 nuketown only for the first seemingly vanilla server I find to be "NO STANDING TACTICAL REALISM."

Yeah but who hosts the servers? Are they somehow virtualized on some huge cloud supercomputer network? Valve has similar matchmaking for TF2, the matchmaking picks a dedicated server with the best pings for everyone but the server itself if privately hosted.

Does this game have standalone dedicated servers?
