Just come and try it with us, you'll see if you are satisfied with the servers we use. It's easy: come, test it , like it or not, stay or leave :D
I only play for fun too, I've tried it quite recently online and don't find it fun.

If you are playing someone in the same region (for me: UK, France, Germany, Sweden) on a nearby server, it feels just like normal Kick Off to me.

Unfortunately if you are playing someone far away (Greece, Turkey) on a distant server, chances are one or both of you will find a sluggishness to the controls. I don't think this necessarily bears any relationship to ping, I usually have a good ping relative to my opponents, but on some servers control is just impossible.

Effects are:
    dancing around the ball instead of picking it up
    kicking in the direction you are running instead of trapping and stopping
    kicking in the direction you are trying to apply aftertouch (instead of clearing)
    when trying to receive long kicks, players randomly jumping/sliding in unpredictable directions
    not taking control of the player closest to the ball when you expect to


On some servers I have the sluggishness, on some it is my opponent, and it is not always possible to find a server where both of us are equally sluggish (or sluggishness-free)!

Playing someone when you can't pick up the ball, kick it where you want, or intercept players/long balls is not fun, it can be very frustrating, but it's certainly a challenge!

I played Stainy who lives about 500 yards away from me, as well as a few other players in the UK. There's nothing more I can really say on this other than it's not for me. :(

I updated my subjective rankings earlier in this thread. Filippos (filmour) is certainly a better player than me, I would like to see a zero-lag match between him and Danne, if such a thing is possible!

I have not seen nikos and filippos in the chatroom for 2 weeks now - maybe they are just on holiday? I miss our competitive maniac matches! Also Danne seems to have lost his motivation for the time being :?

Mannix now has a joystick and isn't a bad player. He does not speak good English and will not ask for a game, but if you ask him he will play you. Seems like he is going to the German Championships in September - give the lad some practice!
