To help us? And a functional bug-free pre-cu experience is your reward. Sometimes I fail to understand people.

Where do you think 99.9% of people are going to go?
Sounds to me like you dont want a highly populated server... Very strange...

Question for any of the devs or anyone working on the emulator, is there a rough estimate you guys expect for the amount of people who will be playing SunCrusher?

As its going in development like now, is there a figure in the heads of everyone working too that they expect the server to reach?

And if the other .1% are who decide SC is not for them, they're directed to a choice of other APPROVED SWGEMU servers.

Dress it up however you like but its still a monopolistic strategy.

The only way to get around this problem is not to host a server at all. If the motives of the SWGEMU team are as honourable as everyone says, then theres nothing to be lost.
However, if there is some underlying strategy going on here, then SWGEMU will continue on this path.
Look at it this way. SWGEMU developed the code, they have every right to decide how to use it. They are just giving this community what they asked for...a hosted server of their own. I am from another server community and I am fine with it. If you've been paying attention the past few months you knew swgemu was going to host a server. How could they not?

Relax and let things play out. I will be enjoying playing Sun Crusher and Nova in the meantime and help in any way I can.

Will un-approved servers have access to the same up to date software with no limitations?
