100% Dedicated Servers?

We don't want 50% Listen servers and 50% Dedicated servers.

I hope its 100% Dedicated.

Exactly what are you expecting 100% dedicated servers to solve?

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

Host dashboard, cheating, consistancy in connection strength, bad hosts (not strong enough connection to host yet made host anyway), local resources not being used by players console to host a game, host advantage/disadvantage.  Besides that nothing.

On this we agree (consistency)... but everyone forgets/ignores what it introduces:

  • Server maintenance downtime
  • Less than ideal ping if a given population is too far from a server farm
  • Shelf life of game functionality is reduced (they will retire the service)

And what too many think they do fix or solve:

  • Latency
  • Lag compensation (or client-client connectivity)
  • Overall experience
    • Titanfall and BF4 are very recent examples

Here's to hoping the AW crowd is more informed than the Ghosts crowd.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

Modern games with dedi's are programmed with listen servers as backup.

Could be solved if more servers were located around the country and not just a single location.

But that doesn't solve server downtime for maintenance, which I personally wouldn't mind if it solved many of the other issues. Mainly cheating/hacking/modded lobbys and such. Id rather play with people around me than people on the east coast and over seas. Personal preference.
