I don't love IWNet. I've not used it. And it's not really a case of supporting the decision that IW have made, more the case of just accepting it and not letting a shitty decision completely destroy a game experience for me. I intend to make the most of it and do the best I can. One positive, if it's worth anything at all, I think, is that this will increase mainstream competetive gameplay. If IWNet has in-built support for clans then this means a lot of extra 'stuff' that clans usually need - website, forums, irc - can be circumvented and we can get on with just playing. Many a time I've been in that situation where the clan's ready to practice and it's "oh crap, server's down?! wtf?" or "bop's changed the fkin password. wtf..." or we simply don't have a clan server. I won't miss that headache.
