MW2: Our game has changed forever
Written by jockyitch

Black Saturday?

A day of infamy?

It’s hard, very hard, for me to write objectively right now, but here is a summary of what we heard on BASH 123. If you missed it…we will have it on demand in a few minutes.

The raw version of BASH 123 can be found here temporarily.

Fourzerotwo was on our BASH webcast this morning and he had a few surprises for the PC community.

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.

Today our game has changed for ever.

I’ll leave this post with Josh Peckler’s comments from planetmedalofhonor.com:

The server community is what’s made us. It’s what defined us.

IW.NET is getting the PC community to turn into consoles. You’re trying to re-write our history.

Got it on pre-order as well. Cheapest I saw was £35 from Amazon, so went with that.

im not going noware near it…

They’ve ruined it for us pc users…and i bet you’ll see a huge drop in sales as most gamers in the states are very possesive of the’re clan servers…

I for one am the same…it’ll be like 5 a side football in wembly stadium and it will just be crap…

Taken away our history?..they’ve taken away a fookin legand…

im not happy…and the sales will show people are feeling the same.

smiled:).

I pre ordered mine back in March… just checked it was £39.99 back then… woohoo :smiley:

sweet GAME have dispatched my copy:D

180,000 + have signed a petition to see IW fail now, they should have never changed anything, why fix something thats not broken
