You heard correct! MW2 has no dedicated server! That means for those who dont know, you rely completely on their network (IWNET) to choose what server you will go to. This also means that
there are NO mods, and this also means, IW (Infinity Ward) has betrayed us, and that means, they are consolizing the PC.
So whats the big deal?
Well, now if they make new maps, we might have to pay for them, like console people, this isn't 100% but knowing money hungry businesses, they can, and might.
YES, IWNET will choose the least laggiest (low ping) servers, and YES it will match your skill, depending on how it works BUT don't you like the community feeling? Maybe you don't like people cussing 24/7 and you go to a server you know is clean, and maybe you want to join a clan
yes, there will be a major decrease in clans because to join with your friends/clan, you gotta make a private match, where only your friends that you've added can join, so that means you gotta add someone, and they gotta accept, which is too much a bother.

Was going to play MW2 competitively, since DoD:S isn't played anymore. Ruined, if there are no dedicated servers, that will mean no promod, no competition servers, and therefore no competitive player base or sponsorship.
Your average random doesn't care, to be honest, and IW knows this, they don't give a shit about the competitive community, as they aren't the ones who make any profit from it.
Meh, looks like I'll be playing TF2 or cs source then.
