Will I would like to hear the thoughts of PC Gamers on this Issue.

Unranked kinda beats the purpose of online play...

Chnswdchldrn2243d ago

well there is something called playing online for fun, not for score or points

xPhearR3dx2243d ago

Not really, I don't care about K/D, stats, rank and all that crap. As long as I can play and have fun, that's all that matters.

useless since it's only used for unranked matches

Well Black and MW2 didn't have dedicated servers are people are still playing them. So, no it won't hurt the experience.

but mw3 has dedicated. they were almost better off not allowing dedicated if they are just going to make them unranked. Yes, no?

Black Ops does have dedicated servers on PC. They are through authorized hosts like how BF3 is going to do it. People can hire servers and set up *basic* rules for them, kick players etc. I think they can make many changes with unranked servers.

I was going to buy it when I heard dedis were coming back but it doesn't seem like they are integrated at all, just an afterthought that is useful for competition stuff, not really public games.

Sure they can unlock all weapons, but I think the ranking is part of the experience. Realistically I don't think it will kill player numbers much.

While I thought at first that being unranked meant that we cannot progress to unlock all weapons/attachments, this is somewhat comforting to know that playing in those servers are a different experience in itself from the public matchmaking. Only that quite a few players may stay out of the unranked servers and admins may have a hard time attracting regular players. I don't know, but that's how I see it happening.

Your wrong again, because black ops did have dedicated servers.

nicfurlong2243d ago

they let you buy a server from gameservers.com they didnt let you set up your own server on your own dedicated machine.

caboose322243d ago

Yes and that is a dedicated server. Well, a form of it anyways.
