    Vendetta isn't a normal dumb-client MMO. It's a twitch-based first-person space shooter. Think Freelancer, but in larger scale. Well, not much larger, as for 3 years it rarely reached above 100 players online at any one time.

    In other words, to play acceptably (as in, dueling with other players) is going to take nearly the same amount of bandwidth as any modern FPS will.

    When I was playing Vendetta two years ago, I remember having interference at one point on my wireless signal, and it made the game literally unplayable (for fighting, not mining). I could still win via dumb-rocket spam, I just could no longer hit anything with the accuracy-required energy weapons. It was very frustrating, as before that, I was winning 9/10 duels, and after, 0/10.

    I totally feel the same way. I keep seeing all these awesome things at all these trade shows, and no one will sell them...It's like, look what we can do, but you can't have it!!!!

Adding features does not necessarily increase functionality -- it just makes the manuals thicker.
