Makes sense up to this point, but i'm confused. Do you mean that the client
depends on what the server sends in the "action stream" and the server depends
the "action stream" being sent from the client to decide what to send to the
client? This would be wrong if you're talking about updating your own field
pressing a key and waiting a second for you field to show the move).
what I assume you mean is that the server sends the same action stream to the
client to update _opponents' fields_. This makes sense, although there are
probably some that don't have to be sent, like block moves, in order to conserve
this is definitely a good idea.
Mind your own business, then you don't mind mine.
