    Might not buy the game for a long while. No dedicated servers, will be aound £50...I think I'll stick with L4D2 for now.

    ...so why did they get rid of the server list?

    The console versions of Call of Duty have had this system since at least CoD 4, and in some ways I think it works better than just server lists - because the map choice is random you don't get hundreds of servers with the same 'best' map, there will be no horrible Quake sound effects or stupid server mods, and if you realy want to play a certain map you can set up a private match with friends. I really don't see what's so bad about this IMO.

    Yeah. In CoD you'd end up on either a really bad map that you hated but you wouldn't get enough votes to skip, or a really good map that everyone else hated. One person in the lobby would be the host, and everyone would use the hosts connection, so either the host would have really bad connection, and everyone else fine, or everyone else have really bad conection and the host fine.

    If you are the host, and want to leave the game, you have to end the match first, causing everyone to be really mad at you, though this is fixed in MW2, and if you really want to play a certain map, you have to have enough friends to be able to set up the friends only game.

    I hadn't preordered it but I was planning to buy. So much for that. Why are developers so bloody stupid these days?

    Because they said they want to be console devs. So what do they do? Screw over the pc version. I would get their reasoning if they were 5.

    Oh I didn't mean that I meant in the match making sense. That there's no server browser of sorts (or there wasn't).

    Nop. You're stuck sucking IW's dick if you wanna play online at all.


    And companies wonder why people pirate games. It's cheaper -AND- it works better.

    I got banned from the IW boards for saying that the mods are butthurt because they're supporting a mediocre game and they are deleting threads that disagree with them


    They deleted 280 pages from a petition thread


    ahahaha

    They're a bit edgy because they got raided by 4chan earlier...



    ... And it was hilarious. Lots of lesbian porn. Although, the lack of 50 Hitler posts was slightly disappointing. Considering Kotick's dictatorial nature, it would be most poetic.
