More on MW3 Dedicated Servers

A tweet from the Call of Duty Twitter account has more details on the just-announced dedicated server support in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (thanks Joao). Word is:

Announced at Gamescom, #MW3/PC will support dedicated servers. Host them where you want, control settings & standard matchmaking like MW1.

You mean like only through specific server hosting providers?

That wouldn't be "where you want," would it?

Unlikely. I'm pretty sure Black Ops outsold every BF combined. I don't think there's much fear from the CoD team.
Consider this a combination of new leaders, more time, and an admission of failure.

I think we established that "MW2" needs a "COD:" prefix if it is intended to refer to Call of Duty. I kinda thought it would follow that the same would obviously apply to "MW3". And for future reference, there was also a MW4, and there has been talk of a MW5, so this should be considered an ongoing pattern.

It seems like they'll be releasing public dedicated server files. Anyone who wants to can run servers. I'm sure there will be GSPs as well who will rent out servers just like they do for Black Ops or Battlefield but you won't be completely dependent on them.

The "control them where you want" is weird.....you mean to tell me they are going to release server files? I doubt it.....

Indeed they seem to imply it. If so it should be fun to hear Bowling spin why they now are giving files back, not to mention these server files, if they are indeed released, will be a powerful weapon against BF3 locked down servers. The slot prices for some of the 64 servers in certain GSPs borders on the insanely expensive.

Still, this is activision we're talking about. I expect the worst.

After the success of Black Ops, I didn't really think there was any chance Infinity Ward would persist with the peer to peer nonsense.

Though I see Xbox gamers are still screwed with a monthly paid subscription to a simple matchmaking service and no servers. I don't know why they put up with that shit.

I've never played a CoD, but good on the devs.

But IWNET was SOOOOO much better!! Why would they go back to crappy old dedicated servers?!? I still can't believe they tried to defend that sh!t...

And look at MW2!!!. Absolutely NO cheating!!!. Fantastic pings!!!. No advantage for the host!. And what is best, no thinking what you want, you just press a button and play!

Oh yes, and it was a VERY well supported game too following its release, with numerous patches and anti-cheat patches, and hardly any cheaters/hacks on the servers where you would have a really good time on an even playing field without any frustrations whatsoever.
