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 donít 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.

The funny thing about his repsonse is the complete lack of understanding PC gaming. Most of the casual gamers will be playing on a console. Fine let them play on their IWNet. Most PC gamers are a bit more sophisticated then that. They will want to run dedicated servers for their own private clan lan matches. And who doesnt love a good mod. I dont hate consoles. There are some good console games. But for a good FPS, multiplayer FPS, PC has always been my fav platform and its sad to see them basically water the PC version down.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. The big business gaming industry does not understand the enthusiasts market for gaming. They may understand the "casual market" but in no way do they understand the enthusiast market at all. Also, a lot of enthusiasts..with money arent 12 years old.
