Vengeance
Stricken with yellow fevah!
 
holy fucking shit. No dedicated servers for PC? major fucking fail. this is like a repeat of FEAR 2 PC MP. monolith threw PC users to the fucking wolves for FEAR 2 and now IW is doing the same. astounding. guess i'll wait for the bargain bin steam deal for this piece of shit. i'm sure SP will be awesome like the first MW, but MP is where its at and PC users just got neutered. look like COD WAW and red orchestra are going to have to tide me over for PC MP FPS.

@ all the PC hippie-crybabies. This game will not end up in any steam deal or a clearance bin. You know all of you will get in within one week of release.

I'm by no means a PC gamer, but it doesn't take a fucking genius to see that taking away dedicated servers on the PC version is a fucking stupid choice.

Why would someone pay $60 for single player when its just as easy to pirate the game?
I'm tired of paying for PC games that have 6 hours or less of gameplay and ass or lack there of online playing?

I promise you I won't be buying this game, and will do my best to convince others to not as well.

I never purchased cod4, and I won't be buying this without dedicated servers. I have other stuff to bide my time.

Obviously, since its not out yet nobody can really say for sure what it's going to be like.

but if I gotta join up into player made lobbies before each round, this game can shove it.

No dedicated servers = pain in the fucking ass, i hate "matchmaking"

IW dropped the ball on this, i like how they let the hype get up first then say this quietly. I wont buy it, just because ill be more annoyed than anything trying to find a good server. I'll definitely download it though to play the SP, cause I know thatll be good

I'm sure Activision has a great deal of control over IW, but this is just unbelievable. I can't help but hold IW and their lame twitter-loving "community manager" responsible for this. They've become smug and arrogant after the massive sales and popularity of Modern Warfare.

I guess it can be surmised that the guaranteed community backlash will impact sales of Modern Warfare 2. Then, based on the reduced sales numbers, IW can then blame the decline of PC gaming popularity and piracy for the lack of a PC version of the next Call of Duty game.

Quote:
When asked, Robert is very clear about the role Activision plays in the development of Modern Warfare 2 - “None”.

"Activision is the publisher and it is their job to handle the business side of the industry. They make sure to get all the games to the stores, worry about pricing and marketing. Infinity Ward is the one focusing on all the creative stuff. The collector editions we came up with are our own ideas and work. Only when the decision is made at Infinity Ward, Activision is contacted to work out all the logistics."

Valve has it SO RIGHT with the way TF2 is implemented on the PC. Modern Warfare 2 on the PC should have been implemented the same way, with Steam integration and dedicated servers. Now that the game is history, are there any upcoming tactical FPS games that will work this way? I have heard that the CS creator is working on a new FPS based on the Source engine, but I think it still uses non-respawning rounds like CS, so that makes me disinterested. I guess I just want something like DoD:S with modern weapons and features.

I cancelled my pre-order, as did about 40 members of the gaming clan I play with, as well as many others.

Someone started a petition, not that it'll get the attention of IW but whatev

http://www.petitiononline.com/dedis4mw/

only seems to pertain to dedicated servers, not the mod ability/maps.

You can also tweet to Robert Bowling

and Austin Clark (MW2)

maybe its time to join forces with the 4chan and SA's of the internet and combine our hatred for this sort of thing and flat out beat them into submission?
