    If only those numbers weren't inflated by people who wouldn't have bought the game anyway, or duplicate/false signatures or even people who signed but will still buy it! :(

    The Steam Group only has 243 members :/ we need more people there, it makes a larger impact.

    So basically my server that I reserved for MW2 is no use now since no dedicated servers?

    But that doesn't answer my question. Should I still be able to use my server or am I screwed?
    Or is this going to be a L4D type of thing.

    No, yes and yes.


    Oh, the consoletards are already celebrating this news and posting stupid statements like "Why should PC be given dedicated servers over PS3 and 360? You don't deserve it!" and "Developers lose money with PC gaming" (they're so used to being ripped off by paying for everything that they see free updates as a travesty), etc... sigh.

    I'm laughing at all you suckers right now. Everyone trashed Treyarch. I bet you wished Treyarch was at the helm again. THEY love the community and haven't forgotten us.

    Never trashed those guys and yes I sure wish they were. My group is already thinking of dumping our COD5 server because of this. We have 38 people getting refunds today on the mw2 pre order. Probably go back to Bf2 next week

    Gameservers.com is going to give out refunds and a choice to switch your pre-ordered server to a regular server. There asking IW to see whats the deal and to see what they should do. This is crap. Dedicated servers are way better.

    They should have said it upfront but waited a couple of weeks before the game launch to announce the Mp server issues they new from the start what they were going to do.(its pretty sorry) They new there was going to be a backlash thats why they waited. I just hope the people that pre ordered find out whats going to happen before they waste there money

    Yeah, its a band move to let the public know that there is no dedicated servers weeks before the game is released. I even signed the petition for dedicated servers. Even thought there is a huge chance that it won't happen.
    WarhammerTX says thanks.

    Their only chance of salvation is to make the game use both systems... matchmaking and dedicated servers. Matchmaking for the casual crowd and dedicated servers for clans, leagues, etc.

    Have you ever thought about how this might impact pc gaming if the developers all went this route I think it would crush the component part of the pc retail industry no need to upgrade do to the same content as consoles cheaper to just buy one most people dont like the console because you can only play the same maps so many times before its boring no league play who would want to with locked content. I dont need a 4000.00 web and email browser.

    Oh, and I totally forgot about this, which without a question proves that Robert Bowling is nothing more than a lying sack of shit.

    Honestly I pre-ordered the game and I am going to go buy the game. It looks really awesome. Even though there might not be dedicated servers doesn't mean its going to ruin the whole entire game.

    Very true...I'm hoping if it's a steam supported game that as long as my clan mates and I can find eachother while in MP, then really it's not the end of the world. Again I still hope that there is some sort of steam dedicated client released, one can only hope. I'm gonna keep somewhat optimistic because this title does have quite a bit to offer offline and online still. I hope dedicated and mod support actually happens, but even if it doesn't, I'm sure MW2 will still be a kickass game. I'm gonna keep my eyes open on the upcoming news for this title as the days dwindle down to release...I wouldn't be suprised if the dedicated and mod support pop up as with the game prior to release...of course at this point I wouldn't be suprised if the game launches without em'.
