Call of Duty Black Ops Dedicated Servers

Call of Duty Black Operations has announced the return of dedicated severs in the PC editions of the New Call of Duty.  What exactly does this mean?  This basically means that there will be individually owned severs in Black Operations with their own sets of rules and regulations.  Personally, I think this is garbage and will ruin Black Ops on PC, and is the reason I have refused to purchase the new Call of Duty on PC.  Dedicated severs result in the abuse of ridiculous rules and limits the player to a certain net of opponents, while making it more difficult to find a match.  From experience, I can explain to you the problems, I believe, making this switch will cause. 

Rules and Restrictions

E-Douchebag: Have you ever been playing an online game and just come across a person who was an absolute jerk to the point at which you were just disgusted this person was playing the same game as you? Dedicated severs allow people like this to own and operate their own server. Not good. When I was playing Call of Duty World at War(a game with dedicated severs) I was frequently banned or kicked from servers for no justifiable reason. Power corrupts, and it should be the responsibility of the developers to make rules and restrictions rather than some of the douche bags that get their own servers.

Stupid Rules: Dedicated servers allow the owners of specific servers to rules as to which guns and attachments are allowed in their sever. Every aspect of this game was meant to be used, or it would not have been developed in the first place. The people owning these servers constantly refuse to allow certain weapons, decreasing the expansiveness and enjoyability of the game. Not only that, because there are so many variations of rules, finding a decent game is hard to find as you waste your time browsing through thousands of servers instead of playing the game.  One of the most annoying things I've ever experienced is one of the "crouch only" servers that you find in World at War.  I always find myself joining one of these ridiculous servers with the hopes of a good game, only to be disappointed and end up spending another 10 minutes searching for a game.

Interference of Call of Duty Tradition

Prestige Mode:  The Call of Duty series has created unique and challenging aspects of the game that allow for the continued enjoyment of the amazing multiplayer.  One of these aspects is Prestige Mode.  For those of you that are unaware, Prestige Mode is the option to continue the leveling process again after it has been completed.  Dedicated servers interfere with this because there are so many variations of servers that it is impossible to have a constant leveling system, thus ruining this great option that keeps players entertained for hours.  

Challenge Restrictions:  One of the great things about the Call of Duty multiplayer is the availability and completion of challenges.  There are many challenges for different weapons, but with the restrictions on weapons you find in servers, it makes it extremely difficult to complete these challenges with out the reliability of being able to use them.  This is also true with attachments.  Dedicated servers also are very notorious for yielding the restrictions on certain attachments, prohibiting you from completing challenges for them in that particular server.  The game was meant to be played, not regulated.

Removal of Convenience

Time:  I have played both dedicated and the auto-match versions of the game in World at War and Modern Warfare 2, noticing that I got games much faster with the auto-match, rather than have to search for a server to play.  I found that, in Modern Warfare 2, I would find a game rather quickly, while enjoying whatever gun I choose.  Dedicated servers over complicate the simple task of finding a game, wasting time and causing difficulty.  

Not only do dedicated servers allow the wrong people to obtain servers, but the also complicate some of the great perks that Call of Duty has to offer.  These severs contain too much variation, causing a lack in reliability and consistency this series has come to rely on, which is why it is a mistake to bring back dedicated servers to Call of Duty Black Operations.

I disagree with you completely, I am a member of section8 clan for COD4, we have 3 servers one hardcore, one softcore, and a mixed server. We have 3 major rules, no bad language, no marty, and on 2 of the servers no tubes. We demand respect from all guests to respect eachother and have fun, we are strict in enforcing these rules aswell, there is no grey line. Our servers are in the top 1 and 2% in the world. We are also having dedicated servers for this black ops game in which we will have fair and reasonable rules, depending on the limitations they give us as far as rule setting. When you have admins to kick those bad guys its better than having to deal with them. Dedicated servers are how it should be.

Feel free to state your opinions as have I, but please do so in a respectful way. My experiences with dedicated servers have been below sub-par, which have shaped my opinions about it. Please do not post hate comments on this article. They will be deleted. Thank you

The gods to honest truth is that without dedicated servers there WILL not be any TRU CLEAN competition. It is already bad enough that we have to wait 3 months to have control FTP files and other control such as weaponds and perks. Competition such as TWL with mods such as Pam4 Cevo Cal and so on CAN NOT EXIST without individual control in Dedi servers. If you do not like Dedis,then you are a CONSOLE PLAYER plain and simple ans should proceed to buy a console copy. THESE ARE THE FACTS.P.s. I have owned and operated well controlled servers for many years. My server was in 94th percentil for the cod4 community. GOOD SERVERS ARE OUT THERE.

ARE YOU A COMPLETELY IGNORANT MORON? YOUR ANSWER IS "YES SIR, I'M A FUCKING MORON"

WE HAVE DEDI SERVERS SO WE HAVE THE POWER TO KICK PLAYERS WHO ARE HACKING AND ACTING LIKE ASSHOLES, BEING ABUSIVE ETC. A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT WHERE OUR PLAYERS CAN ENJOY THE GAME LAG FREE AND A PLACE TO ORGANIZE CLAN MATCHES. COULD YOU HAVE A MATCH ON MW2? NO FUCKING WAY. CAN YOU CONTROL HACKERS..NOT A FUCKING CHANCE IN HELL..DOES IT TAKE ABOUT 50 ATTEMPTS TO GET INTO A SERVER ONLY TO FIND THE HOST IS IN THE SOUTH POLE ON A DIAL UP CONNECTION...YES IT DOES...

I COULD ONLY READ THE FIRST TWO SECTIONS OF YOUR POST..THE REST IS OBVIOUSLY AS SHIT FILLED AS THE FIRST BIT. I NEARLY FELL TO SLEEP.

BUY A CONSOLE... ITS PROBABLY THE BEST THING ANYONE COULD RECOMMEND YOU DO.

I'm glad people like you get conned into dishing out 20 dollars a month to control a server that you think makes things better. The only reason they made dedicated servers was to make more money and to save resources actually monitoring and improving there servers. Have fun finding a server, or playing with the same exact people at the same servers you play ever single day. That won't get old at all. Talking in caps just expresses your lack of intelligence.

"Codplayer" is the perfect example of the douche bags who get there own servers. This is a perfect example of what I mean when I say that idiots get there on servers because they are girly control freaks that want to ban anyone who is better than them.

So passthejelly, what gives.... Why not simply start your own server where you can have a free and unrestricted game play. I do not and have not seen anywhere that anyone is asking you to play their way. I am a senior admin in a clan with six cod4, 5 and 7 servers. We have varying rule sets, and frankly... people who give it a chance have many positive things to say about what we are trying to accomplish. As a general rule, the only individuals who create issues for us are the hackers and the foul mouthed, whiny, immature kiddies who are probably playing without Mama's permission. On any given night our servers are hosting upwards of 200 players, and the majority of those are return players that have us in their favorites section.

Start your own server, you'll be much happier.
