i have trouble believing that.
... why? The game is from GPG. The match making system etc. is from Stardock. Stardock facilitates the connections between the players.
Stardock is making a big deal about this system working, because they're going to be using it a lot in the future. If it was just GPG, why not just use the existing system with GPGNet?
Exactly. Which is also why I have a lot of patience for the current troubles. I don't expect a brand new system to work perfectly. Since it is a long term development I expect it to work well for DG and future titles.
