not only have they terminated the servers for multiplayer PC gamers to make it act like the console games. Now they have slashed the limits from 64 players(original COD4) to 18!!!!! Just like the PS3 and Xbox.
In their defence, I can see why they've done it. They want to reduce the lag felt in the larger games of multiple players as well as making map selections and perk selections easier. They also seem to be trying to force a large percentage of die-hard PC users to the Xbox/PS3 versions, since they aren't as easy to pirate.
Doing this now though, 5 days out, I think there will be a lot of PC Gamers cancelling their pre-orders
