Does having dedicated servers change your stance on the game? 

I'm interested to see what the reviews will say about the game and the state of the franchise.

Don't really care... I have never had any negative experiences on matchmade games while on the other hand (on PC with player run servers at least), joining dedicated servers has resulted in me getting kicked and the likes... Same in BF3.

Now I understand some of the kicks... Like getting kicked from a server hosted in Germany because its the only game I can find meeting my criteria... My high ping can be a detriment to others... But I have been kicked for "cheating" multiple times and have never cheated anything... Plus I have been kicked for space (clan run servers with their people all on one side dominating, etc...) Guy gets on, welp we need room for him, kick.

Black Ops and Black Ops 2 had dedicated servers. Black Ops 2 is loaded with hackers right now. It's bad.

Due to time, money, space etc.  

I have been looking at 3 games to satisfy a MP FPS itch.

 

COD:Ghosts, BF4, and TitanFall.

 

I have decided that Titanfall is going to be my first one to really try, (EA does have a refund policy now) 

 

Ghosts, and BF4 I am interested in, but I would rather have Ghosts come out, and really see what its like first before buying. But it is really nice knowing that dedicated servers will be there in Ghosts.

And I know my rig is showing its age with a few games, and BF3 is one of them. (BF4 I would rather play with a new rig, and would rather wait for a few DLCs to come out, and maybe a premium edition)

They probably kicked you for lagging in front of other people with your high ping...

This must be a new devlopment. I played regularly the first 5-6 months and rarely saw a hacker.

Yeah I see hackers from time to time but it's far from "loaded" and I play nearly daily. A LOT better than MW3....now that game WAS loaded with hackers.

HUH? I never notice a legitimate hacker when I play, ever. Maybe someone who does really good, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're hacking. Then again I only play hardcore, so I don't know if it's any different in core.

No love for the Playstation... I am still thinking on which FPS to buy next... Ghosts or Battlefield 4 because I've recently played Battlefield 3 and I am in love.

A friend of mine got accused several times of hacking when he tried the BO2 free weekend on steam. He's just a good player. He always does well, but not ridiculously so, in Counterstrike. He wrecked COD so hard, I'm not surprised people thought he was hacking.

I'm surprised people hackuse in COD considering it's not difficult to be good at the game. BF3, it's the same deal. Takes a bit more skill because the gun mechanics are a ton better than COD but people hackuse. BF3 right now is at the bottom feeder level though because all the players have already moved on and are waiting for BF4.
