Re: Call of Duty:Modern Warfare 2 - No Dedicated MP Servers

Well like any large coporation they are bleeding the franchise dry. I dislike this to the extreme, alot of the reasoning is complete bullcrap and is creating a false image of what dedicated servers are to those who have no idea (console users). The biggest shame is that PC online gaming will be full...
