Dont feel bad, I have 51347/2048 internet and I get mass lag and lag comp. I've learned over MW3's life that it's less to do with netspeed/specs and more to do with bad coding and porting. The lag/lag comp is reason #3 why I have'nt touched this game in over 2 months. [END-QUOTED-TEXT]
OTHER ISSUES; –
Lack of dedicated servers
Bad coding and porting
Steam platform used as advertising delivery mechanism
Just does not work in general
What is IWNET? and 2 important questions
1.COD:MW2 need IWNET in order to play online multiplayer? < Correct, it's their new peer-to-peer matching services. There won't be any dedicated servers. 2.If Infinity Ward shut down the IWNET(becauseonly a few PC players use it), no one can play onlinemultiplayer games right? Also correct.
ANOTHER TEXT SUMMARY: - (By Clair Claws)
So what is wrong when Modern Warfare 2 just crashes when you start the game up for the very first time ? Crashes back to desktop, Crashes the whole PC, Freezes the screen and doesnt respond or just Hangs in a black screen. Well it happens a lot. And hours of Googling is not something a consumer had in mind when he/she bought this game.
OTHER? (Yes this goes on)
BONE-UP - (Other technical terms related to IWShit - VAC)
most attractive feature of IWNET, which uses Valve’s Anti Cheat
