I guess so, but how many people do they typically get at LAN's? I would think a 10/1 connection would handle it. Maybe not.

Either way, you can thank all the pirates and cheating douchebags for only purchased dedicated servers nowadays. They're the ones that drove the market in this direction.

Na I think this is about controlling DLC more so than cracked servers. They were mostly in Eastern Europe in cod4, and I doubt a lost sale. There are plenty of other ways to prevent the cracked servers as well.

And what would it be called if you illegally downloaded DLC and ran it on your server?

Piracy.

True, but I call charging us $15 for 4 maps something much worse. Why can't they just be like valve and support the community mappers. Given enough time there would be plenty of great maps to include in updates for free. Just touch them up, make balance adjustments and send them out.

CoD:MW2 Map Packs were ridiculous and I will never buy them. The original maps are good enough for me. I'll probably be getting Black Ops when it comes out too.

I do miss map making tools. If they do include mod tools for Black Ops (as they say they will) then it should have a map making utility.
