Yes, originally I thought of making it old world only. Also for ping purposes. But let's see what's possible.Sounds good.

Yes, this is a good idea to make sure everybody has their microphone set up right and gets a basic feel for the controls. Strangely all the official servers have no players on them - maybe because cheating is rife there as there are no admins on guard to catch them. But that wouldn't matter for a little training session.We could join for a session, have a chat about the mechanics of the game, adjust some settings and shoot some stuff up for practice.
