Marius net Welcomes Bungie.net Refugees
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

As announced last week, late Friday night marked the end of the Bungie.net service for players of Myth II: Soulblighter. For those who still enjoy the online portion of this game, the short list of alternatives consists of GameRanger and marius net at this point.

Marius admin Conner made a post to their forums to give those new to the system a rundown of their expectations. While the most requested feature is likely ranked games (which even Bungie.net abandoned), Conner addresses this issue head-on:

No rank. Well, I guess that isn't much different than Bungie.net currently. There is, however, game tracking for TFL and soon SB. What game tracking is all games in Tourney rooms are "tracked" — meaning the data is collected and available in detail form at http://www.mariusnet.com/gamereport.php4 and in summary form at http://www.mariusnet.com/summaryreport.php4. I know some of you feel strongly about ranked — but the same reasons Bungie.net pulled ranked are the reasons we don't want to implement it. I suggest you look over the summary report — it really is a better implementation of "ranked" in my opinion, you just don't get that little icon is the main difference.
Anyone wanting to play either of the first two Myth games should definitely give the marius net web site a close look. The front page cautions those wanting to use marius net to follow the installation instructions carefully.
