Stats are broken. No one knows when Epic will get them fixed.

The ear means it is a "listen" server. It means it's not a dedicated
server. I don't know why you can't connect to them, but if you're
just looking for a game you're better off *not* connecting to them
since it's probably not that great a server.

Does anyone know where the term "listen" server came from? What was
wrong with the old "dedicated/non-dedicated" designation?

And so I ain't..I found myself a good one and try to connect to it when it's
not full.

And last,probably noob question - what's the difference between
dedicated(listen) and non-dedicated(?) server:) ?

A non-dedicated server means you are hosting a game and also playing
on the same instance of the game. In that case, you have a ping of 0.

A dedicated server means UT is a server process and is designed for
clients to connect to it, but it isn't designed to be "played".

Some people start a server instance on a box and then start a client
instance on the same box and join the server through the LAN function.
With UT2004, that would take a fairly beefy box.
