My Games and my archives are basically the exact same thing, so its a single implementation.
I'm not sure why you can't sort by opponent name, seeing as you can sort by everything else.
My guess: Something to do with the indexes. Sorting by text is very slow. Everything else on my games is non-text. Action and Alert could be just stored in a bit field, 0 = my move, 1 = your move, etc. Dates are easy to sort by, so are numbers (game id). So that's my guess. Server load. Although Russ made some optimisations (as shown in the clan leader stats) which may make this possible.
Dunno, I guess Russ is the only man to answer this.
