I am really annoyed with this bit of news. I was delighted when I saw that it wasn't delayed, but then when they stated no dedicated servers on that live stream...the silence kid of said it all. I reckon there are 3 ways it can go; 1) It will be a crappy console port from the get-go and not be improved upon and the network code is crap, but the SP should be solid. 2) The devs will release dedicated support somewhow and all will be ok. 3) The new "matchmaking" will work straight out of the box and we can game to our hearts content, safe in the knowledge that we will have to pay for any DLC. Matchmaking. What the hell. Personally, I do NOT want to play against people at the same rank. I give a flying toss about your rank. It does not mean jack about whether or not you are fun to game with. I want to play with mates and people I trust and have great fun playing with, like all of the members in ZiiP Manys a time I have gone onto a server after restarting a profile, rank 5 or something and kick the living crap out of lvl55 people who seem to barely know which end of a sniper-rifle to point towards the enemy. I am pissed off with this news, but hopefully in the coming week, IW will release more information about this new system and whether or not it will acutally work as intended. There are some things that I really want to know; - What is the maximum player number through IW.net? - What are the system requirements? - Do we have to pay for DLC (map pack confirmed for early next year) - IS THERE HARDCORE MODE? - Can the "matchmaking" restriction on rank be disregarded so that we can play with anyone we know - Will there be a working friends list. If I can get some answers for even some of these things, I will be happy (if the answers are good).
