    Its official that there will be no dedicated servers for this game... I'm pretty annoyed (wasted my money on what was promised to be a playable game) and disappointed (the gameplay was bugged extremely from the start).

    some relevant quotes from different people on the official Codemasters forum which sum my feelings (http://community.codemasters.com/forum/showthread.php?t=396212&page=2):

    Ha, even MW2 is copping flogging too, quite a few good threads on reddit bout it.

    Don't waste your money on things such as this, wait for other players to be the testers. It's been suggested before to wait until after the first patch in most cases.

    Seems that this is the way of PC gaming from the large developers, skimp on everything. Shame for them that we have the internets to vent and damage their reputation, console players are fairly limited in that regard. Plus they are usually younger and less savvy.


    Hearts has a deathmatch mode.

    lol hate to tell you i told you so :p

    and mw2 is actually really good, a few of us around here was playing last night, roaming around in our party smashing all that came infront of us :p really good fun, and unless your in a serious clan, or a admin s erver, IWnet wont mean a thing to you, if your just a casual player who enjoys a good game, then IWnet delivers.

    Yeah ArmA 2 has more than its fair share of bugs, however ArmA 2 is the only game of its type. No other game can do the things that ArmA 2 can and no game can even come close to the realistic simulation of combat portrayed in ArmA 2.

    I have much more respect for a company that takes the risk and tries to make an innovative new product that pushes the boundaries of PC war gaming to new heights rather than just churn out the same old tiny spammy CS/CoD clones over and over for the quick cash.

    BTW I am not an ArmA 2 fanboy I don't even have the game yet. I am waiting for them to fix most of the bugs before I get it which is exactly the same as what many of us including myself did for ArmA and ArmA IMHO was one of the best game purchases I have ever made.

    You do realise we had alot of stuff relating to OFP2 posted in another, not to mention the whole no dedicated servers was discovered shortly after release and became very much so apparent that there would never be dedicated servers.

    just thought id point that out.

    glad i canceled my pre-order of the game, thats for sure.

    he should of been lasing them for an airstrike instead me thinks:db:

    i dont spend lots of time on the pc especially reading everything... as a result i wasted 40$ :(

    sometimes assuming a well advertised high quality game would be playable online doesnt hold up


    im going to drink some one elses alcohol mwhwhah... and wait for Red Orchestra: Heros of stalingrad

    Yeah pretty disappointing. It was'nt (note the past tense lawl) a bad game per se. We had some good fun with it. It's just the lack of post release support that is disappointing; no dedi servers only being the half of it, also no new content or small patches to fix the simple bugs...

    Ah well, MW2's out I got a new toy to play.
    No regrets here, If I could do it again I'd still buy it just for co-op.

    there's new content in the 1.01 update plus there is work being done on the next patch 1.02, its a pity there's no dedis but the games still cool.

    Has it been through Steam updater yet? Cause according to Steam there's been no updates at all. All that's listed is the release.
