Description Soul Sucka 2019-01-25 02:21:06 UTC
A common feature in both Doomseeker and Doom Explorer is that server IPs are traced to a specific country, which is then displayed as a flag icon behind the server name. It is a convenient indicator to have a grasp on where servers are located, especially considering not all servers have their location spelled out in the names. Having a country location displayed for servers is also common practice in at least some modern games, so I believe they would improve the overall look and experience of the launcher a good deal, while making it easier to transition in-between Doom server browsers.
