Smile What's your favorite online multiplayer game for Linux?

What's your favorite online multiplayer game for Linux?

Is there a particular online multiplayer game you enjoy that works great on Linux?

I've been playing Enemy Territory but I'm looking for other games that are free and enjoyable. It doesn't matter what genre, hell even if your game is ascii only without flashy graphics, or a simple game like Chess or Go it doesn't matter, I'd like to know! Links appreciated.

Thanks for reading.

Ut2003. I think it may be UT2004, but I only have the demo... =)

Quake3 is second.

For Windows my fav is Diablo 2

OKay, just kidding. That game sucks

My favorite online game would be Enemy Territory and UT2004. I only play UT2004 just to drive the vehicles and run people over. I can't aim worth crap on UT2004.

BZFlag - not my favourite but others have already been said. UT original still is my fav over other UTs.

CS doesn't seem to run any more with Ced or Wine latest :( (1.5, not 1.6 since Steam and new modifications are horrible!)
