Canceled my preorder, emailed to let them know I did so, signed the petition, and will only be buying this game if they allow dedicated servers.

They screwed up big time.

That's exactly right. Infinity Ward said "hay guyz, we removed the multiplayer from your gamez lolz, have fun not playing!"

I went with a buddy last night to cancel his pre-order at Gamestop, and the lady was like "Why are you cancelling it? Does it have something to do with servers or something?"

we both kinda laughed and asked her how many people she had that cancelled, "Oh I dunno about a dozen or so, they've all told me something about the servers or something like that"

lol

If that petition number had an added zero, and actually proved lost sales, they might reconsider. Otherwise, they'll just cancel the donkey show but keep the coke and whores.
That said, I hope it does come back to bite them in the ass.

Spoiled? As a consumer more people should put their money where their mouth is like doing this sort of stuff.

To nickle and dime gamers and strip away what should be a normal part of the game is a step backwords, not forwards.

dude. do you really think this was a strategy by IW to fuck over gamers? do you really think there was malicious intent behind this?

its going to cost them MORE to make a fully functioning matchmaking system on pc, then just let there be a server list.

l4d had a matchmaking system, where was the boycott there? seemed like it worked out fine for that.

I contend that you like to lie back and take it in the asshole. How's that for an insulting accusation? They're stripping the game of a vital, standard component. Those of us who can stand up for what we believe in are very rightly not happy.

I believe that they are experimenting to see how well it works and how we react. They took a big risk and they will pay for it.

Would you like to show some information to back that statement up? Pulling shit like that out of your sore asshole makes the rest of us chuckle, but really, it's just nasty.

The matchmaking system currently implemented in L4D works to a degree. The small team size and the ability to customize the match settings to a reasonable degree in the lobby is the only thing that has kept people from using the server browser to find matches that they want to join.

I doubt it this late in the game, that bitch is ready to be shoved out the door so I'm sure they'll be keeping changes to a minimum. Very disappointing though, we were hoping to setup a server for so all of the local airsofters could play together, we tried the same thing for L4d but gave up because it was stupidly hard to make the matchmaking system function properly with group servers.
