    Pros for using CD?

    Im trying to get my community to get CD on the NS server. I need a good arguement as to why. What are the benefits, besides cheat protection, of using CD? I hear a few Cons (such as client side lag) that I dont know are true or not.

    * No spam. C-D is very quiet. It does not distract you by writing to the screen or saying things.

    * No network problems. C-D does not open any network connections. Instead it uses Half-Life's built-in messaging system for its client/server communications. You do not have to worry about reconfiguring your firewall or router to use C-D. If Half-Life works on your network, then C-D works on it too.

    * No lag. C-D does not use up your bandwidth by sending a lot of information on the network. C-D's challenge packet is very small (22 bytes) and is only sent every few minutes.

    * No list of cheats to update. Since C-D only aims to block certain cheating methods instead of specific cheats, it does not have a list of known cheats that needs to be frequently updated.

    * No unfair bans. When you get disconnected from a server with a violation, the reason for being disconnected is between you and your conscience. The server admin does not know why you disconnected and therefore cannot ban you. We like to think that everyone is welcome to come back and play fair with cheats turned off.

    * No constant downloading. You only have to download C-D once, the auto-update feature keeps you up to date.

    * Frequent updates. If we become aware of cheats that get past C-D, we will release a new version. The average time between cheat release and C-D release is currently 72 hours, but may vary depending on the cheat.
    Also, it thins out the jerks and nubs. New players who have no intention of turning serious won't bother to get C-D and so they won't play (if it's required). Also, a lot of the jerks you see think C-D is a waste of time and won't get it.
