I actually think this may be a good thing for this type of game. Since the game modes are time dependant and rely on certain classes it is nice to have everyone start the game at the same time. I'm not worried about this one as long as you get to choose what map you want to play.

So how would it work? I'm not much of an online gamer except for L4D..would you just host the game from your own pc? Is that a listening type server?

It will be much like Modern Warfare 2 but with more options when in the lobby. I really don't care as long as its a good system that doesn't group me with people with a 200 ping.

We should have an Official "No Dedicated Servers" Game thread stickied on this forum.

I don't have MW2 - Any reasonably modern pc shouldn't have a problem though right? I have zero idea what type of resources a rig would need to host smoothly.

Thanks

It does seem to be the trend...

When you want to join a game you select what mode you want to play. It puts you in a temporary lobby with a bunch of other players who want to play the same thing. It then picks who has the best connection and rig to host the game and it starts.

If you ever hosted a server for L4D then you should be able to host one for any of these games considering the AI in L4D adds alot more overhead then DM.

Why do they want to piss PC gamers off? I mean look at us. We're probably the most dangerous force on the planet. If we all tell our parents on the developers there is a good chance our parents will call their parents, then they'll HAVE to support dedicated servers and shake our hands.

Except, L4D uses dedicated servers exclusively, the server chosen is based on the host.

Good news, dedicated servers are coming after all!!

Despite rumours, Rebellion has always been planning to support dedicated servers for Aliens vs Predator PC and we can now officially confirm that this is the case. Rebellion has always appreciated fan support. We're really looking forward to the release of Aliens vs Predator as much as you guys are!

You can host a game, its under local.
