    There's no way they honestly think this is going to stop piracy.

    I'll make sure to get all my friends to torrent it multiple times.

    It could stop cracked servers, as there will be no dedicated servers now, plus it being integrated with Steam.

    No, but surely by removing the communities' favourite feature from one of the most anticipated games of all time they would have seen it coming :duh:

    What can I said ? They try to Kill the PC Gaming, Build a States of Noob... They said 'We dont want you to think'

    Infinity Ward, I'm so disappointed by your lack of respect in the people who Pushed your company since the beggining

    very nice

    wow i can't believe I am actually tempted by Battlefield now hahaha


    I fear IW is going to pull an Epic on us. They make the pc version crap and don't listen to players, therefore the game doesn't sell well which means IW will blame piracy and stop making PC games altogether

    I've read here and there that it's going to 'change communities' and all but I still cannot find how this change could possibly be for the best ?

    What is impressive is how IW managed to become public enemy #1 in a matter of hours, this is quite insane :D

    I bet Treyarch is happy to see IW fail :D

    I just found this out. FUUUUUUUUUU~
    This is absolutely stupid, dedicated servers are the foundation of the PC multiplayer scene. This is an outrage!

    I'm impressed by the community's response to this, and there was a very good point made on one of the Kotaku posts. Most console gamers dont actually realise what a dedicated server is, and so their common reaction is 'i dont care, it doesnt make much difference'.

    People have already said this, but dedi's provide the base for individual communities.

    I am impressed as well ! The petition has 30 000 signatures already ! When I signed it this morning (or was it late last night?) I was the 1800th to sign it

    Even if half the people who signed it, didn't but it, that's a very big loss that I doubt they are willing to take.

    I expect to hear IW comment on the matter soon.

    if you refresh the page every time you press F5 you can see a new name on the list. It's insane how fast people are signing this thing ! I can't wait for IW's reaction

    They'll downplay it, claim people are making a big fuss over nothing and start a barrage of incredibly intricate and mind boggling PR ******** to fool people into believing it's all OK.

    To be fair, I'm not sure we should be placing all blame on IW, as I'm sure Activision had quite a bit of say in this decision. I also don't expect them to make a U-turn on this, at least not right away. Lost sales or not, the executives that made this decision clearly aren't in touch with the community and will continue in their misguided view that this is a good idea.

    Maybe later on when sales have died down they might do something about it, but it's unlikely TBH; they sounded pretty committed to this "revolutionary idea" to me. Maybe if they had released this news officially with more information about the new service and the possibilities for the future then the backlash might not have been as harsh, and it wouldn't look like they were trying to cover it up.

    I found this on facebook. If ever you encounter an console ignorant (not that all of them are, obviously), copy/paste him this :
