Still More on MW2 Servers

A post to Robert Bowling's Blog has further follow-up on the uproar over the absence of a dedicated server for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He lists several areas they feel will benefit from their new approach: Matchmaking & Smoother Gameplay, Playlists and Private Matches, Party System and Friendslist, and Cheat / Hack Free Games. On that last topic, he seems to believe IWnet will eliminate aim-bots and such: "The biggest benefit of using IWnet by far is the fact that you don’t have to worry about joining a server full of aim-bots, wallhacks, or cheaters. Or relying on the server admin of the server to constantly be monitoring, banning, and policing it. Modern Warfare 2 on PC allows us to control the quality of the game much more than ever before as well as utilizing the VAC (Valve-Anti-Cheat) system to keep games clean of hackers and cheaters." Also, there's an interview with Bowling on IGN that discusses the game, but none of the recent controversy.

I'm not trying to be a jerk Prez, I respect that you believe it or at least believe you heard it but you can't drop a bombshell like that without some data.

Questioning unsupported (as in, without a clickable link) information isn't being a jerk; it's being prudent. I don't usually get called on it when I cite it, because I THINK that most people find it somewhat credible. Either that, or no one generally pays any attention to me...
