I'd love and I'm sure many would prefer Steamworks. I don't know anything about the implementation and what not. All I know is that I myself prefer it to having to set up port forwarding. Yes, I know about this thread. http://secretsofgrindea.com/forum/index.php?threads/port-forwarding-firewall-and-hamachi-guides.226/ I used to be able to set up port forwarding, and I know how, on my current PC, but for the life of me I can't get it to work anymore. No idea what happened. But talking about port forwarding is another thread/time. Steamworks ftw!
