They were promised, and now almost a year after the games initial launch, we still haven’t seen, or even heard, anything related to the dedicated servers. Alot of complains I have, and other people have voiced, would be fixed if we finally could move away from the awful p2p-system we have now.
Someone joining while you are loading a map? Better enjoy staring at a black screen for up to 5 minutes (at which point you giveup and alt+f4). Host quitting out of anger because he/she died or something, thus causing the map to reset and loosing you lots of time, or what about the bots magically disappearing in the middle of matches (sometimes fights) for upwards of 5 minutes at a time, because someone joined as that particular character? Or when you join a match that started and find yourself alone way behind everyone else because you start at the place the bot was when you started to join, rather than when you actually joined.
All frustrating things that on the whole make the game seem “cheaper” (for lack of a better word) than it actually is.
Now, to be fair, these things aren’t happening every game, far from it. But it would definetely make the game alot better if it didn’t happen at all.
So, Fatshark, can we finally get our dedicated servers, as promised? For me, VT2 is the best game of 2018, and by far my most played of last year. But these small things really start to annoy you when you experience them almost on a daily basis over a span of a year.
