The Crappiest News I’ve Heard in a Long Time

20Oct09

Modern Warfare 2 won’t have dedicated servers, won’t have mods, for the PC version. What the hell!? WHY INFINITY WARD WHY!? It’s like downgrading from World at War. For shame Infinity Ward…FOR FUCKING SHAME!!

Reian’s source:

Call of Duty community manager Rob Bowling, also known as ‘fourzerotwo’, has confirmed in a podcast that the PC version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will not support user-created mods. Worse, it will not support dedicated servers. PC gamers will have to suffer peer-to-peer connections, just like their console-owning cousins.

Mr. Bowling could offer no defence for this move, and simply stated that: “The team’s focusing on having it very equal on every platform” and “We’re doing a lot of work on the back end.”

Previous PC versions of CoD have supported dedicated servers. Their absence will apparently make the game “much more accessible to the PC community as a whole.”

You can listen to the podcast here; skip forward to around the 1:41 mark for the awful truth…

 I’m loving how DICE disses Infinity Ward on twitter and says.”Dedicated servers FTW. What ever secures a better online experience is a given for us.” At least Battlefield Bad Company 2 will backup the PC gamers to the maxi-mondo. The bullshit of all of this is that Infinity Ward wants to make it an equal playing field for all platforms but what they forgot is that PC gamers supported Call of Duty since the very beginning, without the PC CoD4 wouldn’t even SEE the light of day on consoles. Thanks for ruining my year Infinity Ward
