1. Less lag
2. Better framerate
3. Better cheater kick
4. Better profanity controls

Thanks for all the work you and developers put into BZ!

I've arranged the items in the poll according to the priority I'd set on them:

Cheater prevention
Lower lag and better network performance
Improved client performance (mostly framerate)
More flags, weapons, multiplayer tanks (one drives, one shoots)
Integrated IRC chat client
More gameplay styles

It's a hard choice between 1 and 2

I voted for better league support and integration. Basically I don't think the client has any lag issues per se, rather it would be non-BZ-related network issues that causes lag. Cheaters don't affect me either (I very rarely play on FFA servers).

Better graphics (more effects, tank decals)
NONONO ^^ ;) leave it like it is .... dont change that ... that is so special about BZFlag it is so nice and so basic ... it just differs from all other games with so much effects an graphic details... I love BZFlag because it is so nice and so simple and not so chiccy micky style ... and you need skill to play it ;) I just love BZ how basic the graphics are, If BZFlag would be very datailed like special tanks ... Antializing effects and what ever .. it wouldnt be BZFlag anymore .. thats what makes BZ the basic and simple style

what i think is important to work on is:
Lower lag and better network performance
because BZFlag is worldwide and it is always quite disapointing when US-Player are on a European server because of the lag ore European on a US its about 20-100 ms vs 150-300 ms and that is quite mean for both players, thats why there are always quite alot of fights in the league..... there should be a server made that the lag hardly differs from each other like all players have between 80-120 ... sorta ;)

but BZ is just one of the best games i know .. its just so simple a nice thats why i love it ;) and thats how it should stay :D

I second that. Simple graphics are part of BZ, take them away and you lose the style of the game.
