    Last night I got to play on a server called XBLServerCom1. I'm pretty sure on the name, but in any case it was something to that effect. It reminded me of the XBLServers they used to have for Unreal Championship.
    Anyway, it was set up for 16 players but it showed up as a "yellow" server. I figured I'd give it a shot anyway. This thing was lag-free with 16 players! It was great playing with teams of 8, except my team sucked![​IMG] Then, we were playing against some "CK" clan (I didn't know Calvin Klein had a clan[​IMG] ) and those boys played cheap. So if you ever run into any "CK"'s, kick their asses for me.
    So anybody else see or play on this server? Has MS or Activision finally answered my prayers? Will clans destroy this game like they've done to UC?

    I think it's a website called XBLserver.com similar to OCGN. They probably bought a Live kit for hosting and named it as such.

    Can someone explain what exactly a "dedicated server" is?
    I understand it is preferrable to play on one, but what is it, a PC on a commercial-grade internet connection?

    Wolfenstein allows your Xbox to act as a dedicated server. You can host a game with out actually playing in it. Players will vote to change maps, etc. They're probably running on a T1 line or SDSL.
