Dedicated servers? We'd have to play by stupid people's unfair, stupid rules and be kicked and not get xp. I mean common tons of rage kickers and noobs out there, and you want to play on that crap? Hell no.
Ive been having some issues also with lag or whatever..I figure itll be tweeked ..Being put in a lot of lobbys with ppl from other countries..Its not nearly as bad as MW3
And ricochet was horrible ..Keep it the way it is
It has been talked about time and time agian this game and the engine it uses is not really compatable with dedi's. Plus dedi's do not fix lag, or any other issue related to lag, they only really fix stat padding and host migrations. BF3 which uses ded's still has lag issues and all the same other issues that CoD does.
So no this game will not be getting ded's anytime soon on the current generation consoles. Maybe when the next gen consoles; but even then it is highly unlikely it will ever happen.
it is bullshit, the engine they use is just a heavly modified quake 3 engine which is very compatable with dedicated servers. Now unless something they modified damanged the engine it still should handle dedicated servers quite well.
Now the pc version has a mix of dedicated servers, which run the games but use matchmaking to put you in the games. That either treyarch,activision or someone is spreading FUD about dedicated servers cause they want people to just give up on the idea.
Also consoles can use dedicated servers to play.SInce games this generation of consoles have used them.
Now I agree with you about servers don't stop lag issues but being able to connected to a well run dedicated server that is close by. Is a great way to minimize factors that increase lag, like the shitty upload speeds that normal highspeed connections are allowed.
Also, wanted to mention...I understand this game just hit the consoles and the game is flooded with new players. So yes, lag is going to be a concern, hackers are going to be present and frustrations are going to rise. I see some people are against dedicated servers, that is unfortunate. I have played BF3 and I have yet to experience a problem with having dedicated servers. I don't get lag, bullet lines are truer than COD by far and I love the destructable environment. trialstardragon says COD isn't compatible with dedicated servers, I'd like to know why...in detail. I don't see any reason why it shouldn't work just fine. Also, if people don't like playing on "rented" servers, you don't have to. You have the choice in BF3.
I get it, this game is new, has some bugs, but like I mentioned before...I like BO2, I think it's a lot of fun and has great potential once the wrinkles get ironed out. Hell, if they were just able to fix spawn trapping I'd be happy with that!
Good games & happy hunting everyone.
