Another argument for dedicated servers.
This has nothing to do with dedicated servers. It has everything to do with the server browser itself.

Actually it does, because the game itself does not allow one to host a server and another person to join at all without gamespy auth and server browser. So while its not only ability to host dedicated or peer to peer server its also issue of auth service.

Tribes 1 & 2 survived the master browser being shut off. All you need is a new master browser server and a line of text pointing to this new server, and you're good to go.

The problem is that I'm sure even if the community started a new master browser with auth turned off and issued a fan patch to point to the new server, this Glu company would sue the bejeebus out of whoever did this.

Whats interesting is that Flight Sim X is in there. I know there's still a relatively strong community surrounding the MS Flight Sim games. That must have pissed a lot of people off.
