As a dedicated PC player and COD FANATIC, i cant help myself buying each new cod, hoping /praying that it will finally be the game to replace cod4.
Dont get me wrong, i love cod4 , just like i loved cod2,
I only stopped playing cod2 because cod4 was a vast improvement.
Then came WAW, another excellent game that was very well supported by the devs on PC.
Unfortunatly, WAW suffered bcause most had played the ww2 scenario so much in earlier cods, and after cod4 ,it was hard to go back to "old weapons",
So back to cod4 it was.
but i still frequent my fav waw server from time to time.
Everyone anticipated mw2 as beiing the "next great thing" , only to find that this excellent game was totally unsupported on PC, NO ANTI -CHEAT, Abusives /haxors running riot, and to compound matters, we had to put up with forced matchmaking/iwnet /lagcomp fail.. this all totally ruined what was potentially the BEST COD EVER. i only got to rank 36 before i gave up and went back to cod4.
BO1 by treyarch was much looked forward to, because we all thought this company at least, supports its PC community.
It did offer us Dedicated Ranked Servers, the only drawback was the single gsp, and the fact the servers were locked up tighter than a scotsman's wallet.(yes i'm scottish but not that tight lol)
we tried renting a server on a couple of occations, but most of my clan were stung by mw2 , didnt even bother buying bo1, (much like a whole lot of the pc community), So these servers were hard to populate due to needing 4-6 players before a map started.
So it was back to cod4. (see the trend here).
MW3 came with false promises by the devs ( cod4 like servers) , well we all know mw3 was just a clone of mw2 but with servers that were so well hidded and only unranked, that no-one wanted to play on them.. Back to cod4 it was.
Finally we have bo2 again by treyarch, AGAIN Ranked Dedicated Servers were promised,
where wwere they? with no server browser, and just forced matchmaking, it didnt take long before the initial enjoyment became a slog of lag comp/haxors / high ping crapfest... and its back to cod4, again.
Well ive now had enough, i will not be buying the next cod on pc, (thats if they bother making it for pc)
i will wait and see if the game has, ALL of the features cod4 has, before making the judgemnt of parting with my money.
As you all know in this forum and from mw3 forums, me and others have been active and have posted our preferences on how a PC cod should be.. the current set up is NOT how we like it.. so if things DONT change ? then why bother buying ? it will only be an expensive SP game, just like mw2,mw3,bo1 and now bo2.
