Lots of servers are empty and few players when in them. Still a lot of PB banning going on too. It amazes me that people have to cheat to win.
I think PC MP games will be gone within five years.
hope you know theres a 1.7 patch out bro. i told some poor guy that there was a 1.7 patch and hes like "1.7 patch? what about 1.3?(he was on 1.2)" poor guy had been playing with only like 1,000 people total on 4 servers for the past 3 years or when ever the 1.3 patch came out
A lot of those servers you see at gametracker or game-monitor are running older patches or are cracked servers. The game is technically two years old since it came out in 07. I think a lot of people are off playing W@W at the moment. There were a lot of WWII fans disappointed that CoD4 went modern.
i see full servers all the time. here is one of my favorites <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/126.96.36.199:28960/">http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/ ... 172:28960/</a><!-- m -->
OP is right tho, most people went back to their previous games due to there not being a decent competitive scene on the game. Old school counter strike still gets 50k-70k people a day, and according to steam CoD4 only gets close to 1k :[ But that is only people who purchased it from steam.
