    Will there be ranked dedicated servers for PC?

    If there are ranked dedicated servers on PC for this game, I will go and pre order it right now. If there isn't, then I will be disappointed, but content to play other games.

    Let me know, because this game looks awesome.

    Cheers.

    You actually expect to get a straight answer? This has been asked for 2 years now. All we ever get is the run around. The closest answer is when someone from UBI was asked about this when he was talking about the console version and said that the PC version runs the same game engine as the console version. The console version only uses listen servers.

    I care if they are ranked, I made the mistake of purchasing MW3 because I assumed their dedicated servers would be ranked. Ranking up is half the fun of playing the game. If there are no ranked dedicated servers, then I will simply continue to play BF3.

    I'd expect an answer before I buy the game at least. If they don't give me an answer, then I will simply not purchase the game, Ubisoft has done a fantastic job of alienating their customers over the past few years, and it seems like now that their profits have dropped %90 they've realised that they need to stop treating their customers like **** and actually give them what they want. Hence their 180 on DRM. I've been boycotting Ubisoft for years without any sorrow (there are plenty of good competing games on the market) and now I'm here to see if I should give them another chance. How they answer this question will probably determine whether or not this game will be successful amongst PC shooter fans or not. I doubt many PC gamers will buy this if it doesn't have ranked dedicated servers when they can just play BF3, BLOPS, or ARMA 3 when it comes out.

    Since other games offer dedicated servers AND have the fancy unlocks, I expect Ubisoft to be able to provide the same functionality.

    ranking as in leaderboards, not leveling up.

    Battlefield 3 has admin restrictions on their servers plus you have to rent the servers which costs money, don't know about blops never played the game, I know the ArmA series of games don't have unlocks or rank ups etc so i presume ArmA 3 won't have unlocks or ranking. I could be wrong but i think there will be private matches in GRFS and no need to unlock anything all the equipment is available straight away. You can't have full unrestricted access to dedicated ranked servers, that would lead to abusing/cheating the rank system.

    I have been asking the same question but they are unprofessional and refuse to buy it so I think I am going to be smart and take that as a lack of confidence in their product. Don't waste your money, the game sucks anyway go download Ghost Recon Online... MUCH better game. They also agreed when I posted a thread that blew up about competitve play and dedicated servers and ranked and they are going to be installing it after release.

    Please We want dedicated servers so we can play right !! matchmaking is for conole and u say the game is not a straight port from console ,so give us the simple right of playing pc games as we should ... on dedicated servers .. set the example, be different from the other greedy studios believe me this game will crush all competion if given dedicated servers

    hope one day b4 i die dedicated servers will not be our main debate about a game

    and yet again we are to blame because if we stood against you and stopped supporting you the next day dedicated srevers will be there ready for download
    but it will be too late
