    Good news. And this means we are one step closer to cracked online servers for MW3!

    One step closer to CoD becoming an obscure yet popular online PC FPS, just like the good ol' days.

    One step closer to CoD haters stopping their habits of entering any CoD related post and posting unnecessary shit.

    On-Topic: Glad to hear, but I'm a 360 player, so it's not a big deal to me.

    What? I was serious, I wasn't trying to insult it. Heck, go back and look at the game's history, that's what CoD 1+2 were.

    I don't really see how that was hate [​IMG]

    HA! They can't even manage the cheaters on consoles. Try playing CoD4 or WaW on xbox live and see if you can get one legit match. Its so bad they constantly have the URLs for their sites pop up on your screen. Then theirs MW2 which while not as bad still has plenty of hacked lobies up an running

    Yes, they were. But the current games have had huge improvements over the earlier games. Then again, whether or not you see things such as more customization, more of a social aspect, etc. as improvements is up to you.

    Dedicated servers = mods = !votekick
    Problem solved. This is what makes the PC version the best IMHO. Mods and votekick, to get rid of cheaters and overpowered shit.

    You do know every CoD game on PC had dedicated servers except for MW2, right? So it's not just like the good ol' days. It's how it's always been for the most part.

    You are absolutely right. This also fixes the problem of leaving a game because of cheaters and then matchmaking putting you back in the same god damn game. The worst you get with dedicated servers is the occasional dick mod who either thinks anyone better than him is cheating or that its ok for women to insult other players but when someone says something to her, "YOU SEXIST PIG YOUR BANNED!"....

    On another note I really wish MS would go back to putting out pc releases of Halo. Its the only console shooter I still play an it would be GLORIOUS on pc with dedicated servers, not to mention the things the modding community would come up with

    Well, at least they learned their lesson from last time.

    When was CoD obscure? CoD has always been mainstream and commercial.

    Publisher concerned about cheating

    WHERE THE FUCK WERE YOU IW WHEN MW2 WAS RELEASED

    Seriously the first week on PC was all aimbotting and all types of hacks, it was literally unplayable.

    With servers, you can have active admins and kick players and what not

    Their just worried about piracy.

    Well it was an online PC FPS, maybe obscure wasn't the right word, though.

    It still is an online PC FPS. I swear there are people here who just hate on the franchise because its a popular FPS and they don't like FPS and therefore poorly attempt to demonize it or create some image of teh good old days. And this is coming from someone who doesn't like CoD.

    I don't, I've played everyone since the beginning and only like 1-4, so a sense of [what I thought was] reversion would make sense. I tend not to be the type of people I hate (specifically the type you just said).

    Once again, I don't really see how this is hate [​IMG].

    That wasn't actually aimed at you but at the spacktards who think FPS are killing their precious mediocre JRPGs. And the Nintendo fanboys.
