      Unfortunately, there won't be a TG server. There are no server rentals at all and the server files will not be distributed. The dedis we were told about this summer turn out to be all run and admined by Acti/Trey. Also, Custom games, aka something like a captain's match, are unranked p2p and not hosted on Acti's dedi servers.

          Damn, I was hoping it would have servers like the first Black Ops, I know IW killed this off in MW2, but at least Treyarch brought it back in Black Ops. This is a no go for me then.


          lol @
          The emphasis on security means the team won't be releasing server files, and players won't be able to rent servers themselves. Finally, the game won't support mod tools. "As we continually improve and advance our in-house tools for our own content teams we are unable to provide consumer tools due to increased technical requirements, licensing restrictions, and technology dependencies," the blog states.
          The old excuse we heard from DICE about modding, saying its to "technical" is very insulting to people in the modding community. It's still a heavily modified Quake 3 engine.

            Well this sucks. Probably a no go for me unless there is a deal where I can get it for like 20$ or something. But I doubt it seeing how CoD games NEVER go down.

                Not sure if this is a deal breaker for me. I'll probably purchase it like the sucker I am. I've always viewed the series as sort of filling my need for a mindless run and gun even when playing on a TG server. Sure there is a way to get some team play involved around here even if it's through matchmaking.

                    After watching another live stream today I'm leaning heavily towards buying the game. Many reasons, one being I'm just another mindless willing sap ready to line their pockets. Another being the series has some addictive game play.

                      Re: Black Ops 2?

                      Against my better judgement, I went and bought the deluxe edition. Hopefully I'll have a few of you to play WITH (hopefully not against).

                      As for the dedicated servers, at this point, I don't really care when it comes to CoD. It stopped being all that good after MW2 came out (as in the PC community gets ignored/killed off). I'm just hoping this doesn't become yet another cheaters' wet dream (aka everywhere you go ruining the game for honest folk).

                      Some things I've noticed that really shows this game is another "eh" in the series:

                      1. Fewer weapons (compare to previous titles)
                      2. Gimped dedicated servers (see above)
                      3. Again, no mod tools. (Though BO did get some quietly release a about a year back.)
                      4. $50 for the "season pass", aka Premium so you can download the 4 DLC Map Packs (yes, maps...only).
                      5. No co-op mode. I've read various reasons including: deadlines, not enough time, too difficult, community generally didn't like it/play it, etc.

                      Forgetting all that, I bought it since I thoroughly enjoyed the shoot-em-up action in MW2 and Black Ops to a lesser extent. And this is another "blowing off steam" title for me to play together with friends.

                      @ FKD,

                      BUY IT! *chants repeatedly* I need someone to play with to help me justify the money I just threw down on the pre-order.

                            Seems like the have more game modes this time around. I'm enjoying the Hardpoint mode - keeps the action flowing around the map and is a bit unpredictable.
