P2P MMORPG

Recommended Posts

I was reading this thread and a lot of people said something along the lines of "we'll use a P2P network so we don't have to spend money on servers." I am aware that this thread is meant in jest and this made me wonder: why can't P2P be used for an MMORPG? By the way, I'm fairly new to programming as a whole and have very little knowledge of networking, so please keep any replies really really simple :D Cheers

Not having control over the game as a whole.
Cheating would run rampant.
NAT / router issues.
Look in the FAQ for the rest.
