Right now people are gathering in skype chats to organize Direct IP games.  There is a problem with Direct IP using the legacy GS game, in that it still looks for a GS server that is no longer their.  There are two solution for this, people that host a replacement GS server are distributing a new hosts file that players can install.  Or players are just using the Evolve VPN chat room to host LAN games over a VPN.

Add me in skype and I'll invite you to the running skype chat rooms, and I'm sure the active players can brief you on the two options being used.

Did anyone migrate over to the new Steam server?  I finally got around to getting a Steam code and there are only a handful of games active.

Lots of people have Mookie, but the 2K/Steam version has a bug that only allows 4 players.  Plus many players in parts of the world were Civ4 is still expensive to buy don't have the steam version.  So as I stated above, players are using skype chats and modified game files or Evolve VPN to play games.

Add me in Skype, I'm CanuckSoldier their too.  And I'l get you into the current chats.

We have a modest community forming on Evolve and direct IP playing ladder-style games.  We are even going to try getting some reports running to force out quitters.  If you're interested in checking it out, download Evolve at www.evolvehq.com and search for the "Civ IV BTS Teamer" party or friend MookieNJ, WarlordDr, or xdskwi and ask to be invited to the party.  We get a lot of 3v3s but it would be fun to get some bigger games going and have more people around again.

'm not sure what you want me to do, these are not league games, so I don't have any authority to manage disputes.  It seems to me though that he can only exclude you from games he hosts....so just host your own games...
