If Cod offered dedicated servers whit the guarantee of no lag an legit leaderboards an games.
But here us the catch you would have to pay a monthly fee along whit a season pass an game.
Lets say 60 for the game 40 for the pass 120 for a year total 200 $ 10 monthly.
Is 200 dollars worth a lag free cheater free game ?
If the K/D stats were removed from the cod series would this stop dashboarding ,quoting early an kill boosting.
if they were removed I think people would simply play the game instead of worrying about this precious little number.
First of all Dedicated Servers are not lag free. Dont know where you got that idea. Nor are they going to happen EVER on COD. This has been WAY overdiscussed in this forum.
On dedicated Servers you got even worse things like the mods who rent them kicking you off for kicking their butt.
Second their will still be cheaters on dedicated servers. There always are.
When a player has acheivements to access there will always be cheaters to get them. As well as scorestreaks or killstreaks.
servers are cost of doing business. Just becase EA does not want to spend that money and decided to shift the role of server to the community does not make it right.
arenanet has proven that if you build a good game, you can afford to pay for the servers because people will mow you down in their rush to give you money.
EA can do it. they dont want to.
Running a game like Guild Wars with only 2 million players doesnt cost as much money exponentially like the COD series would.
Its easy and cheap to run small sets of servers for fewer players.
Small sets meaning less than like 10 million players. Look at games like "Evony" and WoW, that have TONS of servers, granted most of them are computer based, but then u go on COD, you have 10's of millions of players on different consoles, PS3, PS4 (Soon) Xbox and 360, wii U PC, those ALL need their own servers.....Your talking almost a million players on Xbox at any given time. And THANK YOU Starbuck someone confirmed cuz i didnt wanna be that idiot althought i have been saying it Dedi's will not stop the lag!
GW2 doesnt have anywhere near 1 million players. But yeah, small population makes dedis possible.
Your entire theory is bunk. Dedis do not equall no lag and no cheater. Gets some facts and try again...
