    Are you trying to evade a ban or something Killer?

    Thats odd, I have all three machines using the same key and the master server allows all 3 pc to connect to the same server, or different ones.

    Not any more, apparently the admin was not a newb, but an impatient aliasing god instead.

    hum, maybe because of the same IP address from the NAT-router?
    Need to test this. OMG maybe I have wasted 10 EURs

    the ten bucks for another UT2k4 DVD, if you mean that, are not a waste at all.

    give it to a friend, together with the AlienSwarm Community edition on a CD

    I've actually been playing with a group of friends who had all borrowed the UT2k4 CD from one friend and they were each able to play from the comfort of their own home.

    You only cant vote if another player with the same cd key has already voted.

    Was the master server involved, as far as i know it well let unlimited ppl into the same server as long as all the different ips have unique keys - i guess not.

    What if they all vote and then leave 1 after another?

    They cant vote all, only 1 vote is valid per cd key,the others must disconnect if they want to pass the vote.

    So if i want to break a server, i just connect with 3 machines and i can never be beaten in a vote, nor can i win.

    And then, when the admin shows up and bans one, they all disappear.
