The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    so, my MP impressions (pc version)

    after some 20 games I see no diffrence betwen my standart 80 ping server and this, I have a 1MB connection and the game runs and plays without problems, I expirianced one host migration, but that was done in some 20-30s
    then again I am not very sensitive to lag

    overall this is the most fun I had out of a CoD game in ages

    I had bad experiences with the Wireless G adapter, and only go wired. I have an N router, and Microsoft is releasing an N adapter. Despite the N router, I've never used anything that uses N. Will the N adapter make a difference?

    Thank you for clearing up the story.

    Scavenger doesn't unlock until level 15 or so.

    If you're not to level 15 after about two hours then something's wrong.

    The last update seems to have broken multiplayer on the PS3 for fair number of people by the looks of it.

    I think I'm done with multiplayer. The kill streaks in this game are just stupid and incredibly game swaying. It's like whoever gets a decent kill streak going first is almost guaranteed to win if they actually put effort into winning (for taking HQ's and shit). Shit is fucked up when over half your kills is coming from kill streak bonuses and not like, shooting people.

    I am kinda hoping that hackers have a lot of success getting past VAC. It might force them to put dedicated server support back in.

    1) Hackers will easily get past VAC

    2) They won't put dedicated serves in, ever.

    Regarding 1), it's really easy to inject code into a process and have it mask as one of the processes own. There are in fact, more than a few ways to do it, and most of them can't be detected by even Lord and Savior if you're doing it right. It is being done on Steam every day with all the other games, and it will be done with this one just the same.

    2) - They didn't take the servers away because of hackers or piracy or any other company line. The main reason is because they want the PC people to buy their DLC maps and shit with which they are already making a KILLING on the consoles. There are more than a few million dollars there of PURE profit, as the maps most likely got most of the work done on them during the development process (cut out levels, etcetera, spit and polish, out of context, sell as DLC).

    Other reasons include someone somewhere figured out that they would a) Save a lot of money on not optimizing the game for the PC but instead just port it over from the Xbox real easy-like (D3D is there for just that purpose), and b) they themselves want to track who is playing what and where at all times, so they know how to tailor that aforementioned DLC in order to get the most people to buy it.

    Dedicated Servers are probably never coming back. It is a stupid idea to put them in, simply from a financial perspective. And that's the bottom line.

    Yeah, this was a problem for me last night. No silencer on my any of my handguns yet either so I was screwed once that SCAR ran out. :P

    Why is there a guy running around shooting people in close quarters with a Barrett? This is silly. Also that thing weighs like 30 pounds and would be difficult to swing around.

    Because shooting randomly at all directions in a sad attempt to kill someone in close combat with a sniper rifle makes you 'leet' or whatever the hell kids call it these days.

    Spoiler:

    Wireless is only ever for convenience, or when it's impossible to get a wired connection from your router/modem.

    Why risk a dropped connection or degraded performance from outside wireless interference at all? Ethernet connection all the way.

    Pretty much. Look at the game reviews 8 - 10 for the PC, scroll down a little and user reviews for are around 1-2.

    Xbox 360 has better support, bigger matches, better everything.

    Ya I saw that but I figured maybe those users were just bitter about the lack of dedicated servers.

    So you guys are saying the 360 version is more of an 8 or 8.5?

    I'm not going to say that media outlets haven't been bought in this case.

    But one can enjoy a story, a lot even, even though it's full of holes.

    I've had just as much fun so far. Except since I don't know the maps all that well yet there's still the "oh god oh god where are they" feeling to it. Which is nice.

    More awesome. In MW1 i felt there were like 3-4 different ways I could play the game. In this one, literally every combo of attachments, perks and weapons feels like a different "class"

    I just switched to the two attachment perk, tossed on the heart beat monitor and the thermal, threw on the scrambler perk and im pretty much scouting out the enemy movements and picking them apart. Throw in a few buddies to help command with my heart beat monitor and its a blast.
