Hi All,

hostuser        = Would be nice to see who hosts that game. (just an int the 
slot (0-7)
user0-7         = yeah i plan that, we don't send that that during the whole 
game just while the game is in lobby (maybe send the whole extended 
dataset just once?)
userstats       = Not important, just to see if someone cheats it, so
                 keep it out if you want that minimalistic.

It's not that much data to save wherever, a solution is maybe to send 
that data somwhere else if kamaze don't want it or the server
is overloaded.
