, where there's also a discussion of some of the negative backlash this has inspired:
- All servers are dedicated servers, used for public matchmaking and league play.
- There will be servers located around the globe.
- You can’t rent a dedicated server; they’re just free for your use.
- Anti-cheat is handled via VAC + Treyarch’s own proprietary tech working in tandem.
- Treyarch has a “full-time dedicated anti-cheat team” to police the servers.
- Server files will not be made available to the public. Treyarch runs them.
- Mods will not be supported.
