The current preorder sales numbers are over 2.3 million, and this number is expected to continue to rise over the next few weeks until Modern Warfare 2's release date[58]. Activision has also said that Modern Warfare 2 has had the most preorders of any of their games in the company's history. [59]

I've already pre-ordered.

BUT, have you heard all this shit about there being no dedicated servers in favour of a matchmaking system? And no modding capability?

Sounds pretty lame..

Paying for demo version is a lame too :>. I know it's known for its' multiplayer mode, but "epic" single being 6 hours max?

And qq about those server is insane from what I've heard.

The CoD series have been kinda on and off for me, I LOVED the first one, used to play it all the time, until WoW came out :p
The first Modern Warfare was also pretty good, so I might get it yeah.

I also read somewhere that you get CoD 1 in the purchase if you buy CoD:MW2? Can anyone confirm this? :o

Who the hell plays anyway on the public servers, especially on TDM/DM servers where you have 50 guys chain throwing grenades and spraying through every possible wall with MGs? That's the way to kill the game, in my opinion.

-Crete a team, preferably classic 5vs5.
-Play classic objective matches.
-Climb up the ladder to become the #1 team in Europe.
-Use that as a pick up line in clubs to get those girls you've always dreamed of.
-????
-Profit.

9vs9 is just too small for my liking, I always like the choice I have between server sizes on CSS (for example) where I can jump on a 64 mega server and just camp for the rank, or go and mix with everything in between

Welp, played Multiplayer for about 9 hours now..

First of all, it's a console game, there's no dedicated servers, instead there's a matchmaking system. So no clan servers, no favourite servers, no 24/7 Map X servers, every server does the same map rotation with the same rules. If you want to play with friends you need to join a 'party' and all enter the matchmaking system at once. Most games are 6v6 max, with the exception of the 'Ground War' game mode which goes up to 9v9.

That said, it's still an amazing game, and very very enjoyable. The matchmaking is fast, with a 30 second break between maps, which seems long at first but you'll appreciate it as you starting building your custom classes and tweaking them between maps. As far as the 18 player max is concerned, I actually think this was one of IW's better moves. The maps simply aren't designed for 32+ players, the amount of different places you can get shot from at any point on the map makes multiplayer challenging enough without making it frustrating.

All the CoD4 gamemodes are in, Search & Destroy, Domination, Team Deathmatch, Headquarters, Sabotage, and Free-For-All. MW2 also adds some more, like Capture the Flag, Demolition, and even a 1v1 Third-Person arena mode.

All the maps so far seem pretty well-made and balanced, and mp_brecourt from CoD1 makes a return under a new name and with a new paintjob (like Chinatown/Carentan in CoD4). The only thing I'm concerned about is that IW might release a map-pack or other DLC for a charge. That's going to be depressing.

Yeah, after getting my hands on the multiplayer I'm enjoying it alot. There's not as much fagging with G. Launchers or nade spam in general. Riot shield + throwing knife is pretty damn annoying though

Akimbo P90's with Rapid Fire is the most hilarious thing I've ever seen.

Also have you guys tried the Third Person modes? It's actually pretty cool..

Not tried 3rd person yes, i'm using the sub machine gun at the moment, i think it's the second one down in the list, really good weapon!!

The lagg is pissing me off though at the moment, all i ever seem to see is server migrations!

Not anymore. Community seems strong with this title, someone made nice hack (or batch file) that allows creating/joining dedicated servers and LAN games.

Ah, well I've just read about this on polish gaming site, they usually know what they are talking about. And I've googled when you asked. Seems I don't know CoD series at all (and suck at googling it).

Also, it's banned in Russia, at last. The only way to get that ban faster in one country, would be changing airport scene to terrorist crushing kidnapped plane into one of two similar towers. But IW isn't THAT cocky.

I'm loving the 360 version. How is the pc version playing?

It is fun and all, but it does really lack the server support. Depends what game type you're playing, but I haven't had a good game of ground war in days where everything from Sabotage to SnD chances are good that you'll get a game in a few seconds.

They added a new gametype today - Hardcore HQ
I always played Hardcore in CoD4 and was kinda disappointed they only included
TDM and SnD hardcore modes in MW2, hopefully they'll add more Hardcore modes soon,
particularly Demolition.
