I don't like CoD all that much, though I do think that it is a decent shooter.

Black Ops sold almost 23 million copies on the consoles. There is absolutely no way that they can offer dedicated servers for free to that many people, it would kill a lot of profit. But by charging, say, $5 a month, they could provide dedicated servers to those who want them. This would fix most of the issues with the games on the console.
I think that if done right, this can actually be a very good thing. However, Activision is Activision, so I'm not holding my breath for something smart/reasonable, but the potential is there.
Let's see here.. I go on my Xbox, fire up CoD, and after seeing the server list and throwing my xbox out the window, I have a stroke.
HELL NO. That's the reason I have a console, so I won't have PC players buying admin rights and then kicking me from games.
In fact, they should get rid of dedicated servers altogether. I'm waiting for the day when I won't have to choose from a retarded server list and have to follow idiotic admin rules (Which I don't).
God bless Blizzard, IW and other developers that ditched the server system. At least on those games, I don't have a half-assed list of rules, a console telling me what to do every five seconds, and an admin that kicks me because I accidentally his KDR
If you're a fanboy and if you're having a heart attack as you read this, just don't bother replying. Don't quote me and ask if I'm trolling, because I'm not, and don't post useless stuff like "umad" or a rage picture, because that just proves my point. Just calm down and accept it. Or, if you're going to rage, at least use proper grammar.
Actually, I might buy a Black ops server soon, and show everyone how the system can be abused. I will set up ridiculous rules and I will kick anyone who uses a weapon I don't like and anyone who has a better score than I do.
Does this sound fair? I don't think so.
I hope dedicated servers never get close to a console.Edited by srsdude - 5/12/11 at 2:55pm
