    Hi all,

    Treyarch being true to form as the new Call of Duty "good guys", have confirmed yesterday that Black Ops 2 will feature RANKED dedicated servers, not just unranked dedicated servers like MW3.

    Given how much I loved Black Ops, and how much I loath matchmaking in MW3 I'm very excited that BO2 will give us that dedicated server control and sense of community we've missed so badly for the last 6 months.

    I dont really get twitter but here are the "tweets" (is that how you say it?:p)

    Black Ops 2

    Treyarch PCdev

    You can also find a news article here, but I think they are confused about the ranked unranked thing as they claim that the "ranked" part hasnt been confirmed even though the tweets clearly state "ranked" dedicated servers.

    Another quick article here

    As much as I'll believe it when I see it this is awesome news. MW3 is the first CoD I haven't played day in day out - thank god for BO1, MW1 & BF3 :D

    Hopefully sounds like I'll be back in the fold come November

    While I know it was a different team that put out MW2, I recall moments where Dedi's were confirmed then not confirmed before the abomination that was IWNet, unleashed.

    This franchise has lost all good will for me, I'm in the 'I won't believe it until I see it..' camp.

    I can see me picking up a Russian key again for this one.

    Treyarch were always true to form, and the speculation was never from the company about dedi servers, it was from the press, the fans and anyone else with an opinion.

    i shoudn't need to tell them to include something that their competitor has given to customers for about 10 years;)

    but i might anyway:)

    EDIT: went there and found the BO2 forums but it does not seem to have a way for me to start a thread even though I have an account - oh well :(

    my ping results on the server are consistently in the very high 3 to four digits on the first 5 or so refreshes. thats oceanic and international included. EU can have a lower ping than aussie on my browser...

    Why should my client have to get results on 10s of thousands of irrelevant servers; which then impacts the ping result for the servers I want to know about. Srsly they included country (FLAG) as a field in the browser but didnt give a filter for it...something wrong there....

    People like reaper like to play with us aussies and he is not in australia. Add the servers to your fav list.

    Im not complaining about the server list...... cause we get to pick a server not let it pick a host.

    As Pezza said - add the servers to your favourites.

    I only had the TOG servers in mine, it's pretty much the only place I played unless joining another TOG member playing on another server.

    this is quite unhelpful when server addresses change and refavouriting is required.

    Plus im in the minority in TOG as a softcore prefered player - so most of the time (atleast a month after release anyway) I expect I'll be looking for populated pub softcore servers to play on.

    That is unless I can manage a softcore player resurgence in this COD release...anyone...anyone....bueller..bueler....:D

    I agree SJ a region filter would be nice, but in saying that I'm just glad we're getting dedicated servers. After MW3 beggars cant be choosers I guess. Still, it would be nice, and surely it cant be that hard to implement.
