Jeez! You guys are so hard to please! No wonder PC gaming is dying, what with all you ninnies crying about this garbage! Get over it. Its not like they're going to charge you $20 a month to play it (cough... WoW... COUGH!).

Lol... People are pissed! You hear that? Yeah. People are actually UPSET because a company refuses to provide servers for you to play on, and might I add, AT NO [direct] COST TO YOU*.

*I have a feeling that it would have been reflected in a higher retail cost, but since its not being implemented... YAY more discounts!

EDIT:

And on a side note: Clans? Seriously? Guys... grow up. Lack of "clan servers" is not that big of a deal. "Oh, this sucks... I can't train on my 'clan server'... now I wont get an unfair advantage over other people"

Honest to god, most people who will be playing (&Buying, no doubt) this game are not that hard core. They play for fun, for the thrill of the game... not to be in some silly clan full of 12 year olds who teabag and shout swear words over the mic when they die. IW is just cutting an unnecessary (&hefty, server upkeep is expensive) expense to help keep them afloat in these harsh economic times. I sure as heck want to see these guys in business, trying to make more of these awesome games. I enjoy cod4 very much, and its good to see people with the right heads on the right shoulders to make a game that is so enjoyable to so many.

Wow...... do you even know the PC gaming demographic? What you just described is the average CONSOLE player. They're trying to turn a PC game into a CONSOLE game. No no. Does not work. Is b0rked. PC players buy PC's to play with more skilled players, for advanced competitive play, for dedicated servers (Australian players are doomed!) for competitive play.... I can go on and on.

All this is is a glorified console port. And they want to charge MORE. VAC is also a joke and I hate Steam (doesn't even work for me). I LIKE dedicated servers. PC gamers WANT dedicated servers, that's why 100,000+ people have signed a petition saying they want them. Just because you can't compete with the better players means nothing, go play on a server full of noobs. Matchmaking kills all sorts of things, no tactical servers, no modded servers, no scrims, nothing but just playing. And you have to wait.

I for one LOVE modded servers and play very competitively -- I consider ProMod, clan servers (for scrims, player hosted servers don't work due to unfair advantages) and the like to be a must. Right now, it looks like PC gaming itself just took a massive hit. I don't know HOW THE HELL IW managed to think this was a good idea. Ask anyone and they'll say no. I just don't get it. ATM, competitive gaming, modding, all custom games and tactical gameplay is DEAD.

Good job IW, at least someone doesn't care...
