Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The ongoing gamer-controversy of the week is the outcry from PC Gamers over online play in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Rather than offer dedicated servers for the upcoming war-game, Infinity Ward is instead opting for a matchmaking setup powered by IWNET. This will give PC users an experience that's similar to console multiplayer, and basically do away with player-run servers. PC gamers, a notoriously picky bunch to be fair, have responded with many angry internet posts and an online petition signed by over 100,000 people.

As you could probably expect, Infinity Ward has responded to the complaints officially, noting that the changes to PC multiplayer will be better in the following ways:

  • Matchmaking will be improved, as will finding faster servers
  • Playlists and Private Matches: Custom rules can be applied without patches
  • Adds a Party System and Friendslist
  • Cheat / Hack Free Games: Makes it much harder to exploit

Read the details for yourself.

As you'd expect, the comment section on Infinity Ward's blog is filled with very angry comments from PC users posting things like, "I want to meet these mythical creatures who have difficulty navigating a server browser " and "now i'm completly sure i wont buy this game." The general mood seems to be: "Sorry. Not good enough."

I don't play a whole lot of multiplayer PC games, so I don't know who's right and who's wrong here, so I'm turning to you, dear reader: What do you think? Do all these gamers have a point, or are they being crybabies?
