Ok, here's the deal, Infinity Ward/Activision understand money, and that's
about it. If we want them to reconsider their decision to eliminate
dedicated servers then we need to hit them in their pocketbooks. The way I
see it if 17,000 people cancel their pre-orders of the game that is a
million dollars in potentially lost revenue. I would say that is enough to
at least get them rethinking their decisions, I know the shareholders will
see it that way at least. So, go out to your respective communities and
recommend that everybody cancel their preorders immediately. Get the word
out and we can make this happen, we just have to all band together in this.

Very well said Marco, especially the last part:
but currently the best things to do IMHO is to support ourself and not
IW... we need to keep selling gameservers... if a game needs no
gameservers we have absolutely no interest in helping/supporting it...
I really would like to be a fly on the wall Monday when they all come in
from the weekend, unless IW has Mondays off now.
Can't wait to see what happens, what we get on Nov 10th. I'm in a
situation where I have review and report back to the community. As you
know sites like IGN will give the PC version a 9.5/10 without even
In a way I can't wait to spend the $60 so I can warn everyone ASAP.
Next game please..... who will it be? God please throw us a bone with
Medal of Honor, BFBC2 anyone ............ I think after the past 2+
years begging the developers to let us promote their games for them is
