    Servers are the same for both versions.
    May I ask why you want to buy another copy?
    Banned?

    And about Steam:
    I would buy the non-Steam version.
    However, this is everyone's own opinion.
    UT3 does not require Steam, so why using an extra tool?
    I know it has advantages, but also disadvantages.

    You don't need to do anything, it's your own and free choice.

        You can install on more than one PC yes, although in the other games from the UT series you could only have 2 - 3 people on before the master server started to complain about it. To become the titan you need to fill up your bar on the bottom left (by killing peoples), then a flashing letter will appear next to it, hit that key and your a titan. Fill up your bar again when your the titan to become the Super Titan! Then your a titan god!

            Its my understanding that you need two cd keys for two accounts to play at once.

            Otherwise one will be disconnected.

                Titan works in only the servers where it's enabled. There are some servers which do that now. In the server browser you should be able to see the list of mutators on the bottom left.

                  Just to let you know. Since Midway fell through Epic no longer have a publisher/distributor. That's why it's now on Steam. You could have a hard job finding it in a store.

                    You can play on a LAN with a single cd-key, but the moment you wanna play online together you need multiple cd-keys. Happy fragging

                      A second copy is not that expensive. I always buy a copy for each PC personally, because I think it is right.

                      You can register your DVD copy on Steam, there is a sticky somewhere up there about how to do that.
