Im trying to get all pumped for Mw3 but it just isnt happening. This is one piece of good news that nudges it closer to the maybe point..

but for me i just dont see anything in the gameplay footage that i can't already get (for the most part) buying or playing Mw2...It just seems same old , same old.

but kudos to them pulling their heads out a bit to give dedi servers.

MW2 had dedicated servers up until one month before release.


I'll believe it when I see it.

Looks like we are going back to COD4 days of servers again, with the added bonus of matchmaking if you want to (from an older comment from fourzerotwo back during E3). Honestly, if they give us the choice to match make, I don't have an issue with it, more then likely just stick to Tac Crouch HC servers.

Nooo, they were unusually quiet with MW2 about multiplayer and kept hinting at something big and new. I was there for BASH's #123 podcast and cursed with the community as a whole.

They need to integrate dedicated servers with lobby system from mw2, because normal dedicated servers = ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ rules and being kicked if admins angry.
I think left 4 dead works like this. First create lobby of game type you want to play and then lobby is being assigned to some server based on location of players in lobby and you have original rules and low pings.

Don't jarate off admins, OR find a server with good admins that don't ban because you owe them. OR deal with hackers and have no way to deal with them.

They will be selling map packs so it won't be like COD 4, making this statement right after the BF3 PC 64 player MP trailer is just spin city.

Me too. If you give the community a chance to ruin a game then just give them the freedom to dictate the playground just like in Lag Ops Nuketown 24/7 or CoD4 Crossfire 24/7. Just the thought of a 50+ player game makes me feel sick. spawn die in 2 seconds, spawn die in 5 seconds repeat.

Basically. The Call of Duty PC community is so atrocious I've left. If gamers think dedicated servers in Call of Duty will be a benefit to the game they are either naive to what happened in Modern Warfare and World at War or are just scrubs who enjoy exploiting and God awful spam maps.

Dedicated servers were planned for MW2.

But before WE got to know about trouble at IW studio (West, Zampella and the rest leaving AFTER the release of MW2) the dedicated server part was already cancelled because of this; announced 3 weeks before release by 402.

Pre-ordering PC Modern Warfare 3 Risky ? (http://www.mapmodnews.com/article.php/MW3-Modtools-Dedicated-Servers)

Dedicated servers with public server files will give some admins a change to create those popular servers on which players enjoy to play on. Everyone will be able to find their own favourite server(s).

Mod Tools AND Mapping tools will help to keep MW3 enjoyable for those who love to play in a new environment, instead of running around in the same maps, day in, day out. We all know that getting to know a map makes you play it like being on auto-pilot.

We can only hope that the days of CoD4 will return.

Mod tools (http://www.mapmodnews.com/article.php/Mod-and-Mapping-tools-IW-MW3) are already a "maybe". Add Radiant and we are finally back on the right track.

:cool:

I feel the same way you do. I think COD4 style Dedi's can bring players back to this COD title, and is a big step forward for PC. Really didn't expect for them to do this.

Did a commentary on it: http://youtu.be/S79B5EniP_E?hd=1

Wow. A game made in 2011 is going to have a feature that was around in FPS gaming since, well, forever?

AMAZING!

LOL @ Dedicated servers, like it's some big massive thing for PC...



Should have done this with MW2. It's only now they are doing now cause BF3 is gonna bash their a$$e$ in. They didn't listen to the PC community with MW2 cause they were Xbox oriented, and couldn't give a stuff about PC.

I do not need another maybe about COD series.

When they get it together and release tools for the game I may come back to the series, but I have found much better games(for less money) to get my entertainment fix. Until then I will enjoy 4 and 5. I for one think (yes my opinion) that this game will be released for XBOX, it will sell very well, PC community will get screwed, again, and withing a year they will release another that will cater even more to XBOX. I do not even understand why they release anything for PC anymore, they are beholden to Consoles now. I predict in less than 2 years they will stop making games for the PC. Not mad, just going to grant them the same respect they give.
