Well consider yourself lucky. Its well known that 6-8 players is about max for running a decent game on the normal cable connection. Some cable companies may allow for more upload which of course changes the ability to increase players, but the normal upload bandwidth for the average cable user is only going to be 128k. Now plug that into the maxrate formula and you will see what I mean.
(and dont try and tell me that a maxrate of 3-4000 is no different than 9000....lol).
If you are getting a higher upload then ssshhhhhhh.......keep it quiet before your ISP finds out.
