Now I know everyone playing online now says it's running very smooth but there are very few people on at the moment. Well, very few people compared to the colossal amount of people there'll be online on release day/week. Obviously there is no way they can test it to that scale although they have experience from the launch of COD4 but us release day purchasers will all remember that had a lot of problems to begin with not to mention there are many poeple purchasing MW2 on release day.
How well do you think the servers will cope? Will they grind to a halt or maybe just some disconnections every now and then or is everyone going to have smooth gameplay from day 1?
Servers are just match making right ? so people will find it hard to get on if that the case or keep on
And it runs a P2P system which means we going to be feeling it
Am willing to bet money there going to be issues
But saying that they know that there going to be a flood after COD4 so they will be more ready this time
SO will the servers cope , that a question nobody knows
If there is going to be a problem due to the server load, I think it will manifest itself as a temporary loss of rank and stats.
Hopefully not though.
If everyone is online and the servers aren't working properly, I'll play more of the story and Special Ops. Whereas if the servers are coping fine and many are playing the single player, I'll play online.
Although the first thing I'm going to do is play through at least 3 of the story missions before I go online, which is what I usually do in a game anyway.
