i'm not so sure the protocol guarantees in-order receipt of the packets -- it gives each packet an ISN, but afaik, it's up to the client to order them before processing.  as long as you didn't roll your own tcp library (and who would besides pen testers?), then yeah, none of that would apply, and packet loss wouldn't cause any issues if the latency didn't get into the 10s of seconds (or several more, depending on what kind of resyncing stuff the netcode has).

TCP is a streaming protocol, not a packet protocol. We put our own packet protocol on top of TCP to make sure our packets arrive in-order and without error.

What you're saying doesn't make sense to me.  Are you not using TCP/IP for your network communication?  TCP (as EG said) guarantees that IP packets arrive in order.

I think what you're referring to are Packets of Warzone data from the Application Layer, which you really should distinguish from IP (Network Layer) packets, since Warzone packets (depending on their size) will likely be split up across several IP packets.
The best thing to do when your philosophies don't stand up to debate is to lock the thread and claim victory.
