PC Gamer editor Tim Edwards has explained why he’s signed an ever-growing petition aimed at getting Infinity Ward to provide dedicated servers for Modern Warfare 2 PC multiplayer.

In his own words:

  • Dedicated server hosts are judged by their reliability.
  • Dedicated servers are fair.
  • Dedicated servers are adaptable.
  • Dedicated servers create community.

There’s a detailed explanation of all of those points through the link.

Inifinity Ward said over the weekend that Modern Warfare 2 wouldn’t feature dedicated servers for online play.

The linked petition now has more than 92,000 sigs.
