    I previously asked for pool play support and it got updated very quickly. Very impressed with developer responsiveness. Could be made better by placing console info in a ticker or notification bar, i.e. network latency issues, player formula not met, etc. Sometimes it's hard to figure out what's going on until you flip back to console.

    Still few features to improve. Like chat and some console commands.
