They will more than likely be the same as they were for MW3, which means not ranked.

It is annoying that they will have seen how much of a flop Black Op's 2 has been on the PC and the reason why it's such a flop and then decided to go along with the same setup as if they actually want the game to fail instead of being a success.

All it will take really to make this game a success is to have the servers like they are on COD 4 including the ability to rank up on them instead of forcing the crappy, matchmaking on us.

Now I know IW are better at the netcoding than Treyarch are, but still I want a server browser and the ability to rent a server in the UK rather than being forced on to servers in France, Germany, Russia, America etc all the time like what happens in Black Op's 2.

The devs surely cannot be that stupid to want there game to fail but obviously those of us who are fans of the games and know what it will take to make the game succeed are the stupid ones.

The one thing that we have all been shouting for is RENTABLE RANKED DEDICATED SERVERS WITH A SERVER BROWSER! and they say they have listened when clearly they have not and just thought, we know best and this is how it's going to be and the game will be a success no matter what.

Well think again IW because I am betting now the game on PC will have less players than Black Op's 2 after 6 months, which everytime I try to play the game which is 5pm to 8pm on a weekday, the game shows only around 10k players compared to COD 4 which easily has over 40k at the same time.

Looks like i was pre-mature in my celebrations, by all accounts (tho not actually verified) the rentable servers will be "unranked", so like you say, the same as the failed servers that were on mw3..

So even now that ranking will be on dedis and not p2p, we might all have great connections, (assuming matchmaking doesnt bork this)

We will STILL have to face abusives and haxors , who will get away with murder with NO consequence for their actions.

And InfinityWards recent history with anti cheat is laughable, if it were not so seriously broken.

So before its released , #Ghosts is already doomed on PC.. such another wasted opportunity.

Hmm...I found no Tweet or anything from officially saying anything of the kind regarding rentable servers. Show me Mark's Tweet.

It's no different than me saying 'Confirmed' this or that, the Tweet is from a Third Party. The only 'new' dedicated servers are for the Xbox One same as the PC.

I dunno. I'll believe it when I see it. The last two times I fell for trickery and slight of hand. I am very wary about it this time.

The fact that they are saying rentable servers at all is a step forward though.

I have a feeling they will be rentable via Microsoft Cloud somehow. This gives them the ability to control them since Microsoft has an obvious hand in the game and will protect the server files.

I don't really care about the server provider.


EDIT: What's interesting is those are two separate thoughts.

1. PC will have dedicated servers.

2. Rentable servers to come post release.

I can't imagine they wouldn't be talking about PC, but I'd like to see a statement like this.

In December of 2013, we will have rentable ranked and unranked servers for the PC. Ranked will allow for reasonable configuration such as map rotation, game mode, rcon, etc. Unranked will allow for full configuration. A server browser will be included for finding servers.

Uh no it's not, don't fall for their scam.

IIRC they promised rentable dedi's for MW2 then pulled them right before launch.

They promised rentable servers for MW3, then made them unranked and sabotaged them in every way possible.

They promised "ranked dedicated servers" for BO2, yet removed every basic feature of dedi's and saddled us with the same extremely broken matchmaking garbage.

Now they're promising "ranked dedicated servers" with "rentable servers to come post launch"  - This means NOTHING!!!

The "ranked" servers will undoubtedly use forced matchmaking, so it will be the exact same unplayably broken garbage as BO2... The "rentable" servers we're supposed to get post launch will undoubtedly be severely sabotaged like they were in MW3.   

Also lets not forget the FACT that with Activision's track record, there is a VERY HIGH chance that they will decide to scrap the rentable servers (ya know, after they get all the pre-orders and day one sales from people expecting them)

"Rentable servers to come post release."

When a year a month a week or never, or just a scam to get us to buy it :-)
