For Anyone Planning to Buy Modern Warfare 2 [FOR PC]
    #11414788 - 11/09/09 12:09 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Infinity Ward has more or less ruined multilayer. I'm copying this from another forum, if you plan on using online play, this is relevant.

Quote:

Here are the snippets:
We're doing a lot on the backend to make the game accessible for everyone.
There is no delay for the PC version of MW2
There's prestige mode
Jason West at the MP event, said that he was dead on, on the matchmaking servers. We've been building a system on the backend called IW.NET.
You are completely reliant on IW.NET. There are no server lists. There are no dedicated servers.
You have private matches where you can customize the game
You cannot put MW2 on a dedicated server.
This is the first time we've ever done something like this and the team has huge plans for what IW.NET develops into.
Customizing your game...you have quite a few options in a private match
You're getting same game (as in Console), plus matchmaking and private match.
Server admin point-of view, NO DEDICATED SERVERS

I've summarized some of my own thoughts from the cast here:

General
IW partnering through Steam is what you will see in the future. Matchmaking is not through Steam, but IW.NET is run in conjunction with Steam.
GSP's will no longer be renting out servers.
No PunkBuster. VAC will be used as an anti cheat.
Retail distribution: Pre-orders will get a disk. Or you could order from Steam.
DLC may now need to be paid for - not confirmed.
Piracy was only a small reason for going to IW.NET - not the whole reason.

Clans:
No more clan servers. Private matches, replace clan servers.
Listen servers will connect to each other.
IW.NET/Steam will replace the community server admin

Competitive Gaming
Competitive gaming has changed forever.
It might be possible in the future for IW engineers to load a "competitive" setting on IW.NET, but it is far from a guarantee. It might also never happen.

Modding
Modding the game is now very much in question. Fourzerotwo had no info on modding. However, it appears that there will be no mods or maps for MW2.
Modding in SpecOps? Unknown.




And if you still don't understand exactly what this means...
Quote:


If you have never played on a PC, and your multiplayer experience has only been delivered to you via matchmaking, then you will never really understand. But try to imagine a host hosting a game while never turning his console off, and you can always reach that room and play there whenever you want, night or day, because its always on. Now imagine that host has a Pentagon grade internet connection and his X360 can handle 64 players in that room. On top of that, the guy whos the host is actually resurrected Ghandi, so you will all be treated with respect, anyone using racial slurs, being offensive or just detrimental to gameplay experience via TKing or exploiting glitches, is going to be removed from that server forever.

Now imagine dozens and dozens of custom maps running on that server, which you will get for free, because IWs not making them. Then imagine entire communities and forums built around that one room (server). You recognize people who visit that same room, you befriend them, you have fun with these familiar folks.

The story goes on, and thats what were missing. All of it is gone.




For many of you, this may be a non-issue. For me, it's a deal breaker. Just thought I would share.

Basically battle.net alternately supporting or not supporting custom maps and games (unless I'm too high, in which case I should stop studying, the quoted post claims both and both as bad news)...doesn't seem like a huge deal to me until there are more details.

None of this should really be new to console players, though.

i was considering getting MW2 until i heard about this a few weeks back, plus it seems they dicked over the game in other ways as well, not a big deal anyways as i thought COD4 was overrated too.  infact i think i only played that game for about a month, as the way spawn points were designed, and the retardedly small maps

I'll probably buy it cause I really loved cod4. I am disappointed it just makes me think "Why fix something that ain't broken." Dedicated servers have been a staple in PC gaming for years why take them away? Plus it if other companies it will destroy a whole industry of dedi server rentals. :nonono:
