I got to wondering recently with my work on https://github.com/T...blyArmada/Thyme as to what server software the C&C Online service runs on. Is it derived from some open source GameSpy server emulator or have the C&C Online guys pretty much written their own?
C&C Online server implementation

Its great to see the effort the people put in to keep online communities like this going. I might have to pester you when I get to reimplementing the ZH networking code if you guys wouldn't be averse to providing a testing instance of the server. That is probably a way off though, I'm currently working though file loading and game engine initialisation.

Would it be possible to reduce lag for higher player-count matches?

Lag is not something the server is responsible for, it's players and players only. Once a match starts, it's played only through the connection between the host and the joined players. The connection with the server is then only maintained for the buddy system and statistics at the end of the match.
