I am fairly certain that every time ID creates a new game, they start from scratch.

I know for certain that valve doesn't on the other hand. They have just been constantly making changes to the original quake 1 engine license that they purchased from ID.

Doom3 MP ain't all bad (I LOVE it actually ), but 6-8 player matches are common. Depending on the server, you get no lag to tolerable lag..

I don't know why everyone keep saying the netword code is so bad. I bet it's pretty much the same as quake accept now:
The game works of game ticks ( so no more advantage to the person with the higher FPS being able to jump higher. )
Collishions are handled via the physics engine and more precise ( ie much better hit detection, you can miss if you shot between a players legs or between their arm and their body ).
This all adds up to more data needing to be sent across the network. So more lag for people on slow connections and a much lower limit to the number of players.
