Don't waste your money, no rentable dedicated = No Buy

Call of Duty Ghosts PC

Don't waste your money, no rentable dedicated = No Buy

I see all these threads about dedicated servers and other things you know they are not going to deliver. They make all kinds of promises and then NEVER deliver.  Stop wasting your money on this garbage. They could care less about us PC gamers so we shouldn't waste a dime on any more COD games. I haven't bought COD the last 2 times and I'm not going to waste any more money until they give us TRUE dedicated RENT-ABLE Servers and I advise everyone else to do the same. Don't come in here crying after you pay for this garbage when you knew exactly what was going to happen.

Just a curiosity on my part but what's the grand appeal to rentable servers?  From what I have read all you get is basically someone's custom game build, generally with one map selected and whatever the owners least favorite fill in the blanks removed.  It seems like it takes away all of the challenge of actually playing the full game and leaves nothing but easy XP lobbies.  I don't care if Ghosts does have them but I seriously doubt that I would have any interest in playing on one and I know that I wouldn't spend any money renting one.

The thing I loved on blops og was being able to have customization like you said, and the ability to manage our servers to not have to deal with toxic players. Just people who want to play with similar game type interest i.e. no tubes and there are certainly a lot of people (not myself) that love crouch only, and that gives them a way to enforce it and have more enjoyable game play. Another huge plus is having a localized known good server instead of random connections that fluctuate all of the time.

Not to mention how it promotes a real sense of community.

When I played og blops I found myself going back to the same servers all the time. You run in to the same players a lot, that often leads to communication, as well as checking out what they are all about as they tend to have similar play styles to your own. It is what got a lot of the people I still play with to this day together and what a lot of us miss from the last couple of COD's

Based on your reply, your understanding of rentable dedicated servers is from 'what you read'. This means you don't really have any experience with them or know exactly what they truly are or the benefits they provide.


How would you know you wouldn't want them? Do you dislike food after reading about it? lol

There is so much you can't understand.

If it's a rentable dedicated server on COD: Ghosts it's likely to have the usual game server interface found on most rentable dedicated servers. It will have the list of servers for you to pick & choose to join if there's available slots remaining. It's likely well be rentable dedicated servers on PC & current/next gen consoles (except the Wii U) because of the clan war & matching feature on COD: Ghosts. Unless Activision found another another way for gamers in a clan to play as a group on the same dedicated server without going into the list of clan game servers then it's gonna be the traditional way. I'm guessing it's only the Wii U that's gonna be left out on rentable dedicated game servers. The Wii U still will have dedicated servers but I think it's going to be non-rentable & hybrid with an interface similar to P2P (like that of BO2) only this time it's not gonna be the gamers with the highest bandwidth hosting (P2) but a dedicated server run by Activision.

I agree with you 100% The the makers of Ghosts are trying to make us PC gamers have a xbox experience when we game so I cancelled my order and will not buy this game until I see this in the PC version.

I think its all basic what we want as PC gamers  .....

1- Unlock fov and let us set it to what we want.

2-Unlock FPS and let our video card work

3- Let us pick the server we want to game on we are not console players we are PC

4- Make sure when you put in game settings resolution 5760 x1080 it works correct. as it never has yet in the two COD I tried it on lol.

5- Stop trying to make PC gamers play like a xbox.

6- make sure we can play in our game configs

7- servers allow us to rent and build our own Ghosts servers and let them be true ranked.
