CoD:MW2 is launching with no dedicated server support, instead they have a match making service just like in Left 4 Dead. No longer will you be able to choose a server with low ping or a modded server with settings you like. They've dumbed the PC version down to a console level and the PC gaming community is up in arms.

They've started a petition with 10k+ signed already and it's only been up a day, players are cancelling pre orders and a total of $200,000 has been lost in just over a day!

Sign it! **** consoles.

When this happens, nerds are most likely to code a mod to fix this or something.

No sir, you dont get it. The pit is not for gaming purpose (only) and you need to go the appropriate thread to get answer on this topic.

Don't care about those games. I'd prefer to fap rather than play 'em.

P.S. if developers make game bad, it is their loss, not yours. Just don't play it, enjoy your life.

Am I the only person that thought CoD:MW was a pretty average game? Admittitly I never played the multimplayer because I played it though round a freinds house, but the singleplayer seemed pretty boring. 4 of us did try some offline multiplayer, that was crap, but mostly due to the lack of bots.

I can't even see a logical reason why there wouldn't be no dedicated server support?


Cost? no?

I was assuming he meant dedicated server support like it exists in other PC games, 3rd parties host games on a private server, rather than players host games on a computer as they are playing.

In MW2 it's fixed so that a new host is chosen during the game and it continues.

Not a chance. I had days put into cod4, went into WaW with a positive attitude but ended up with under 3 hours online because its terrible. Zombie coop is overrated too.


Anyway, to enrage everyone further, the cost is apparently going to be £40 for the pc version (£55 for consoles) because activision think the pc version is too cheap.

PC gamers are tools anyways. They just like to hack and pretend they're better than everyone else because they shoot with a mouse.

you've obivously never played on good servers then. I love the tf2 community on the servers i go to. everyone's nice and almost no hacking occurs. You're just mad because your PC won't run them, aren't you?

I'm serious


I always hated SOCOM and other PS3 games, and even 007 Nightfire on PC back in the day because of dedicated servers. I can see how some people like it though.


Theres also really shitty matchmaking though, like Halo. It takes so long to join a game, and after every game you have to find a new one.


COD4 MW is great though. It's so easy to just start up a game and start playing. And theres no connecting for 5 minutes and finding out the server is full, or finding out it's no explosives snipers only when you just wanna spray n pray. Or something.


EDIT:

wtf?


If I wanted to play PC games I would buy a PC that plays them. I grew up with N64, I'm a console fan. I don't like jumping with a space bar or walking with a W.

And I have played on good servers. But finding a good server is a 1/10 chance.

And yes I have played on "good servers". I'm just too impatient to search through a million games to find a good one.

It really doesn't get more cliche and overdone than Call of Duty. It's going to be the same as CoD4, but this time it gets some makeup.

COD4 has the shittiest matchmaking of all imo. You cant see what map you're going to join when you hit connect and 9/10 its a laggy host that ruins the game. Lets not forget the host leaving thing.

With dedicated servers you can favourite a few good ones. In TF2 i play on one server 99% of the time where I know everyone, can be sure friends are in there, am at no risk of being cheated and have an awesome time

Stop whining. If you don't like CoD, why even comment?

In fact, forget it. You're the one wasting your time here. Have fun.

The multiplayer is better in WaW. Levels are bigger and more interesting. Half of the MP levels in MW feel the same.
