for one, if you link to every other server, you'd be wasting a lot of bandwidth. it would also create tremendous server load trying to sort through all the messages and figure out what came in at what time due to lag, etc

if the network were to become a mesh network, a server would most likely not connect to more than 2-3 servers, and it might even be only hubs that meshed, with clients still connecting to only 1 hub.

well i see a sort of hybrid mesh would be affective. i think it is a good idea to use some extra bandwidth as well as a bit more server load to increase the network stability. does anyone agree with me?

so is seiki saying that they should change hybrid to allow better support for mesh networks? in a way that hybrid would choose the best path? this wouldn't this need to modify the protocol to include some sort of routing?
