Thanks for the reply Mush, I hadn't seen this previously as I don't venture on to the other platforms forums. Whilst those features for clans are appealing it still falls short of a dedicated server. Several issues arise with a lack of dedicated server one of which I already spoken about;

This is a big issue, but when hackers start to turn up as they already have been in the GR:O beta reporting the hackers could take weeks to come to fruition and the player base will abandon the game in a heartbeat (Look at both Crysis 2 and Homefront, hackers had ruined both within three weeks of launch and neither have any remote form of player base now). Having the dedicated servers which with proper admin and clan allows the servers to be clean and allow the game to thrive online.

I appreciate the reply Mush I honestly do, but the dedicated server and clan conversation as a whole is a lot more complex than just a matchmaking system (in my honest opinion).
 re-read the last sentence and it broke my brain - I don't know what I was trying to type ;p

So sad for a great game that it will not have dedicated servers, i just wonder when the devs will realize that we pc gamers want dedicated servers?.
Well I'm glad the forum Mods where able to answer my question eventually, thank you for your effort in getting us a straight answer. Unfortunately due to the lack of ranked dedicated servers, as well as other features that have been considered standard in PC gaming for over a decade, I will not be purchasing this game, as it simply does not compete with other titles on the market due to the lack of these very basic features.
Keep trying Ubisoft, maybe you'll get it right one day.
Thanks for the information. Was minutes away from preordering before I found this thread. Will be passing on the game until it goes onsale. No dedicated servers means the online portion of the game will be dead within months.
Again, thanks for the information.
pure console port bull****. With all the free to play shooters now and upcoming you should feel ashamed ubi. Keep supporting old out dated consoles while shafting the community that gave birth to your franchises.
Not buying after readyng this........................No dedicated servers.......sheez
Could you please carify then, why on this page:

Does someone at UBI not know what "LAN" is, or is the term being used to sucker people into buying yet another game that does not support LAN? I'd buy this game if it had it.
So apparently they are just copying and pasting. On steam (you know, for the PC) under game details, under guerilla mode:
"Play with up to 3 friends online, or play on the same console and TV with two-players split screen mode."
It's obvious this was pasted from the console info. Unfortunately I think the game is copied and pasted as well, and unfortunately, it probably does not have any of what we want, including LAN.
I'm never gonna get a new game at this rate!
Best idea for shooter fans.............stick with what you have......BF 3 is bringing 2 expansion packs. Notice EA at least supports PC gamers with an awesome dedicated server file. Unfortunately, UBISOFT follows the trend of MW3.................I predict it will be a complete lagfest like MW3. You will watch hackers and not even be able to kick them.
Funny, all of the sudden on the page I linked, the comment I had posted is no longer there. I wonder why? Struck a nerve, have I?
