We've not had any complaints but then again looking at it I would
say those spikes are map changes which do take 20 -> 30 seconds
and do use 100% cpu hence only being able to run 1 server per
processor on the Intel boxes, the Opterons seem to be a bit nicer.
Dice really could do with looking at that load hit even if it means
it takes longer to change levels.
