MW3 Last Minute PC Facts... Again...

Two years have past and you'd think Infinity Ward and the Modern Warfare team would have learned their lesson. Nearly 18 days until launch and finally, the PC facts have come to light. I put off writing this because I'm actually pissed off that it took them this long to tell us the truth again, and the fact that once telling us the truth, won't respond to any question the community has about the PC SKU and decisions made... again...

Call me jaded, but this week marked my second year with Planet Call of Duty, in fact, if you want to know which day it was I took over... BASH 123. Yes, that's right... the day I started at PCOD marked the day Bowling came on BASH and told the world... "Hey, no dedicated servers... but you've got IWNet." Not two years later... he basically did it again...

I'm not going to copy and paste everything listed about the PC SKU of MW3, but I will cover the basics and the important stuff...

First: Dedicated Server for UNRANKED ONLY... now the specifics on what these "dedicated servers" are is still unclear... yes I know, you'd think they'd say "we've got files day one for you to load onto your server box or for a GSP to grab so you can rent unranked servers" ... but that's expecting too much...

Second: IWnet is back for RANKED play... Which means... wait didn't they say the reason Call of Duty Elite is no the same on PC is because they can't "lock it down" (might be paraphrasing there)....
So yes, IWNet is back, P2P is the only way to play ranked...
Now if you'll remember I caused a stink about bringing back renting only for ranked servers because then Call of Duty Elite would be equal on all platforms... but hey... apparently reason means nothing.

Third: There's no "MAXFPS", there's no LEAN, there is LAN support, and the max players is 18...

If you want to read all of the... all of the PC "info"... go here.

AUTHORS NOTE: I'm not pissed about the lack of dedis for ranked... upset, but not pissed... what I'm pissed off about is the fact that for the second #$%!ing time they wait until last freaking minute to give any details what so ever about the PC SKU of their game... I'm mean seriously, I get it, bad press at the end... but come the #$%! on, that's not COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT , that's not even proper PR or MARKETING...
