Garena-Like app for local multiplayer games

i don't know if this is even possible but it just came into my crazy mind
what do you think?Garena or GGclient app for the iDevices
so that all games which already capable of local multiplayer can be played online
long wait or wait for nothing is not needed just to play online against other players around the world,and the game developers will also get advantage because they don't need to make their own servers for their games
i don't mind if someone here say i'm crazy but i just want to share my ideas
and please tell me if some reason that will make this an impossible crazy idea that didn't made to my brain,hahahahahaha

for all those who don't know what Garena is,it is previously called GG Client,it is an application for PC that enable players play Warcraft 3,Left4Dead,Counter Strike and many other LAN games through online servers,it means that you can play online against other players around the world even with LAN games only,sorry if I didn't really brighten your minds about Garena,hahahahah,too bad for me,hahahaha

Not too familiar with the program... but seems to me that it would be difficult to make this work. The current iPhone OS doesn't really allow for programs running in the background. Maybe a jailbroken solution could be devised that would simply fool the iDevice into thinking that it has a "global wifi" with everyone else in the network. But again, wow. Difficult.
