Massive UT3 Patch Set For March 27

Ever since its release late last year, Unreal Tournament III has been one of the finest online multiplayer experiences available. However, Epic isn't about to sit back and gloat; they've got a huge list of fixes and enhancements that will hit with a patch scheduled for March 27.

The following list detailing the upgrades and repairs was posted at IGN's Voodoo Extreme; provided by Epic's Jeff Morris. They're separated into two lists; one that applies to the US only and one that includes both the US and Europe.

Will the US compatibility with the Euro version mean US and Euro players can play together finally?
Anything that means there's more players online is good in my opinion. I hate having only 1 game match playable with only a few people in each team and one team dominating (mostly from cowardly tactics that would get them creamed if there a decent amount of players were there.)
