Posted on October 24, 2011, Phil Owen Modern Warfare 3 Will Have Dedicated Servers, But Only For Unranked Matches
Only matchmaking to public games are Ranked (meaning, you have to rank up to unlock weapons to rank on the leaderboards), choosing to play on a Dedicated Server is UnRanked.
So what you’re saying is that nobody’s going to be playing on dedicated servers because they want to rank up and prestige.
He clarifies that all unlocks can be customized on the servers, but still. This is not what people wanted when they asked for dedicated servers. Sigh.
