|I did like playing then, but it was brutal on players with inferior link. No hit delay, spells and hit rounds were faster, no move delay between rooms. I remember on several occasions trapping a Swede in a room with 3 people spamming close door, and they could get out, because with the old flee system you got a flee attempt for each time you typed 'flee.' Hence, if Swede types 'open door, flee' the flee would go through easily before any of your slowass American friends could close the door. They also used clients to continue fleeing until it went through, something that was utterly worthless for Americans because the roundtrip time from when your client first entered 'flee' to when it got the negative response was usually more than a second.
Needless to say hit-fleeing as a Swede (especially with smite) was insane. You could enter, hit, flee before an American could even hit you, let alone cast a spell. I'd love to see Mume VI run on a machine in Idaho, we would own. The changes have attracted a lot of talented US/Canadian players.
