CoD4:MW2 - whatever its called

So, I downloaded the free weekend install to play Multiplayer and so far it has been the shittiest experience I've ever had playing any PC game.

When the game actually runs, it runs great (doesn't seem any different that CoD4:MW, but the maps feel more claustrophic but that could just be me.)

It took me 8 minutes to get into a match. I'd expect with all the people who are probably playing the free weekend I'd have no issues finding a match.

Here is how it has been for me:
Intermission > Disconnect
Intermission > loading screen > disconnect
Couldn't connect to game match
Intermission > Disconnect
Intermission > loading > in game, losing > Disconnect
Couldn't connect to game match

After about an hour of trying to play (only actually playing maybe 10 minutes tops) I said fuck this shit.

Worst PC gaming experience of my life. I have two conlcusions:
1) Steam can't handle the number of people trying to play the free weekend
or
2) CoD4:MW2's net code is a piece of shit (most likely since it uses P2P right? Just uses IW.net to match people up.)

What's better is that you can get VAC banned if you contract a hack, which spread if your host has one active. So if you get chosen as a host in a later match, you'll raise flags for hacking.

Yeah, complete junk.

I would treat the files like malware and get them off of your computer.

Wow really? That sucks balls! Isn't CoD:MW2 the most hacked game now? Even the console versions are being hacked.



I know on Friday I played two matches, then it disconnected me and wouldn't let me get back in was telling me I had to buy it. Then this morning I got the "EXtended weekend" invite.


Not worth the hassle to play i guess. I wanted SPEC-OPS anyways for the COOP. Girlfriend is having fun with Borderlands, might have to get some DLC.

Got to play some more matches Saturday/Sunday night.

All in all, it didn't really excite me, maybe I was still cheesed about the random disconnects.

So, out of anger (and a friend jumping on) I re-loaded CoD:MW1 and we played for 3 hours on a dedicated server with less than 30ping, and no disconnects.

I'm going to keep CoD4:MW2 on my boycott list until its free with the purchase of something (sold the copy that came with the 360 LE, was so tempted to play it though haha.)

100% CO-SIGN in bold! I have never seen so many campers in one game before.
