    On 10 october Infinity Ward drove a heart thru Call of Duty lovers everywhere when it was announced that there would be no dedicated servers or mod tools for MW2 for the PC version. What they may not realize is that this could well mean the end for Call of Duty modders, game server companies, the competitive community and the tight knit clan system that most of us are a part of. EA and others have tried similar things and failed miserably.

    This petition is to let IW /Activision know that we PC gamers are a force to be reckoned with. Many of us also have consoles or consoles for our kids but we feel the best experience is with the PC with the features we have come to expect from FPS games and the Call of Duty Series. Putting these things we need will cost very little and will generate goodwill and maximize their sales. Hopefully they will see the benefits of keeping their PC consumers and customers happy.

    This news is a giant leap backwards. It was PC gamers that made Call of Duty and Infinity Ward what it is today. It seems that there is not a champion at IW who knows what the PC experience should be and that is disheartening. Many innovations in the game today originally came from modders such as Joker. Making the console version as feature rich as PC has made console games what they are. It used to be innovations came to the PC version and then they figured out how to put it in for the consoles. Console gamers are losing out here as well big time. If it weren't for PC COD would be single player console (cod 3?)game with no replayability.

    We are willing to delay the game or take a patch but please assure as that these features will be in the game. Please sign and let IW know how you feel.

    Also if you cancel your preorder the retailers will notice and put pressure on IW /Activision to get their sales back.
