I think I'll just get the game in alternative ways for the singleplayer and screw the multiplayer. CoD4's multiplayer is still good. Was looking foreward to all the goodies in mw2 thou, but that can be implemented by modders.
I wanted to punch that IW guy's face in whenever he said it would be better for the casual player. Just because you don't play with a rock up your ass doesn't mean you don't want to be able to find a server that you can be near sure you will have fun on. With IWNet, you have no clue what is going to happen when it tries to pick a server for you.

Also FC2 had matchmaking, hell it was one up on CoD4 2: EB as in FC2 the server you were being match-made to could at least be a dedi. From the like 3 times I played that game's MP, the non-dedis were lag zilla and the dedis, well the game sucked either way but at-least your guns would hit things more than half the time.

Non-dedicated servers are a relic, they've been outdated since the late 1990's, the reason multiplayer has been able to expand in a large enough amount that it has become the main reason people buy certain games is because of dedicated servers. And for that asshole to say that people are better without them, he must have never played a PC game in his life.
Basically what they're doing is making PCs more consolised. They think that because their biggest market is on Consoles that they should adapt the game to be the same on PCs, to boost their sales.
Maybe they just know how to manipulate their consumer base of genetic mistakes into buying terrible games.

Actually given the amount of backlash on the IW forums, I think that they won't be able to recover from this shit storm. Sure there will be people who will buy it for SP, and those out of the loop who don't realize what they are getting into, especially because there won't be a demo or beta, they will buy the game. But this is really going to do a huge number of their sales.

See here, here, and here.

With the release only 23 days away, IW is going to have a tough time to convince people to buy the game, inspite of this. They will need to prove that the new system will be fun and not detract from the experience, and without a demo/beta, that seems pretty impossible.

But one of the guys in the podcast says that this might just be IW trying to kill the CoD franchise on the PC, which actually doesn't seem to be that unlikely.

I just read about this on Kotaku.

I'm lost for words. I mean there's nothing I can say that other people haven't already. IW are idiots. This will fail. People will hate it. The game won't get a dedicated community. I mean did they think about this at all?

Ugh.

When does borderlands come out? I'm still waiting on a new PC game I actually want to play now. Haven't seen one since the Orange Box was released.

I'm enjoying WC3 atm though.

It's total shitstorm, borderline hilarious to read people's comments and self-contradicting arguments.

For the bulk of CoD console gamers, this is true; too many people like specialist who just suck IW's ball sac all the way to the grave.

EDIT: Thanks for karma, who ever it was...

"Aside from the interesting Steam-related news, the latest I have heard related to dedicated servers was a comment from a GSP (anonymous source as he wanted anonymity) that dedicated servers will in fact be available. Apparently, he was contacted by IW on this topic recently.

Given that GSP's love the Steam interface...could we in fact be heading for an online Steam+dedi server scenario? "

IW and Activision arent stupid enough to do get rid of dedicated servers.

Provided they do, it'll be fixed in a patch within a week of release.

If there is no dedicated servers, apart from the usual problems, it attracts piracy. For the plain and simple reason, all that is offered is a single player game with shit MP.

If you want ppl to buy your game, focus on MP, where the re-playability comes from.

I was going to buy this game for the MP experience. Without dedicated servers I won't buy it. Cod4 will remain the better game of the two.

This. I am still playing Cod4 daily and I am still entertained. Mostly because my clan has recently started some Promod competition play and it is loads of fun. ALSO mods will go bye bye with no dedicated servers, so fuck that.

I signed even though I don't use my PC for gaming anymore. (More like I don't have a PC that can play any of my games)

I feel sorry for you folks, If I was getting for this on PC, Id be seriosuly pissed off.

First no PB (do they even have a anti cheat system set up?), now no dedicated servers, the MP will be shite on PC.

But it won't do anything, it never does.
