Yeah this has been the best news in weeks/months. It's really difficult getting that game working on newer computers.
Would anyone be interested in starting up another game? Would like to play with people who aren't going to leave as soon as the game starts!
In any game that is this large that is open to the public you will have dropouts.
Also, only about 8 people have left. The majority is still playing.
