WHY IW?!!!!!!!!!! WHY??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


so what does this mean for us now?

For me it means I might just play CoD4 still after MW2 is released. I did it with WaW, I can do it with this.



Also, you can all sign this petition that was set up.

To make it clear here a quote of what we gonna have for MW2




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:




  • 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.



  • 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 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.

Today our game has changed for ever.


What a mess, really annoying to read this, if they not gonna change it (which I doubt 24 days before game release) they go to hell I'm keeping COD4 for Multiplayer :mad

I blame casual gamers for this blatant stupidity. CoD is a competitive series and should stay that way <.<



I still hope that this is either a horrible, horrible dream, or that Activision is playing a premature April Fool's joke.
