I found the FAQ's claim about "the only reason other games don't
have more than 100k players per server" particularly illuminating -
they seemed to be unaware that there are some minor technical
problems with more than 100,000 players connected to the same
server!

Although I'm now getting "Connection Refused" from Glitchless?
