developed by Stardock:
◦ Players who have opened their ports
get directly connected.
◦ Players who don’t have opened ports
will get connected via a NAT server
◦ Players who still can’t connect
will have their games hosted by Stardock servers based in Asia, Europe, or North
America depending on player location.
We will also be resetting the stats to launch the second Epoch later today and
that includes favor points so that everyone is starting from an equal playing
field. First epoch stats are being archived.
