A further note on that: if you want to play a game with a specific person, it's HARD to get into the same game unless you both are on at the same time. I hosted a game last night waiting for my brother, and the game was full and started 30 minutes later (and it was six player at that!). Hard for people who want to play together but whose internet schedules are not synchronized.
