2   only because I never played BF.

I'm not too swift when it comes to connectivity tech. But a couple things came to my mind.

It would be like CoD4 and WaW. I thought we had dedicated servers back then. When the host left a game, the game would end and "host ended game" would pop up. I also remember a very large part of the PC community in an uproar when they heard MW2 was not going to have dedi's.

Another thing that came to mind was the Respawn article. Originally the whole dedicated server thing had to do with the next-gens. Respawn Entertainment | Let’s talk about the Xbox Live Cloud

Then comes the forum thread. GHOSTS ONLINE CONNECTIVITY UPDATE

I presumed what they wanted people to assume when they announced it--that, you guessed it, there would be dedi's all around.

I didn't create this thread to cause an argument. I was curious if I was the only person who had presumed wrongly when I read the announcement and saw all the YouTube videos and magazine reviews about it. I'm not saying any one lied or twisted the truth. I was just interested and thought maybe such feedback would be constructive for IW / Activision on how to address and word announcement in the future. If they see the majority of there consumers do not see things as they do, maybe they might consider wording stuff so sad old men like myself might correctly understand the content.

That would save the forums from being full of people complaining about a feature due to misunderstanding it's content. Sorry for trying to help.....

Well the last post you made in another thread said again that they lied to us. Then you add the fact that you made an entire thread stating they lied to us when barely anyone agreed to you.

If you didnt want to start an argument then why did you call a handful of people stupid ? You biased your topic before it even started. If you wanted to take an unbiased poll and get what other people thought you shouldnt bias the people who are going to answer your poll. Because then you are going to get different results.

Thats all I am saying besides the fact you spent too much time obssessed with a video game for a 43 year old vet. If you were a 14 year old kid I could understand. When I got my first Nintendo at that age I stayed up all night playing that thing for weeks. But I spend no more that 2 hours on a video game , and I own hundreds of them. Got almost every system out there and games for all of them. Never throw anything away. When I die whoever I leave them to will cream in his jeans. But videos games still are a lower priority for me.

I'll reply to this when I get home from work as I think that was rather insulting to be honest. You appear to think its OK to be Ageist, I sure you wouldn't put racist comment's on these forums.

I am not really sure as I did not follow the whole dedicated server thing. Figured it was to good to be true. But I can say that in the 2 days and a few hours of actual play time I have, I have only seen a host migration twice. Compared to previous games, that is nothing. So maybe there is something different this time around?

I was surprised by the statement, and read more about how they should improve the games connection. When more information was leaked, about availability and timing I realized it was not going to be for everyone and so nothing else really changed. I did read recently that there is a server in my state: Florida.
