Comment And Question...

So, my sons will fight about anything and everything, from cereal to which CoD is the best, etc.  But when we're in a WF mission together, we're like a machine.  It's awesome really.  

 

Anyway, is there a possibility that in the future that the game will support more than 4 players at a time?  My wife also plays and my oldest son plays when he's not working.

 

So for my household that would be 6 players total.

 

Just wondering.  Again, we love the game.

That is so awesome.

 

The family playing i mean.

 

To Your question.

Currently we have 4 players group simply because of no dedicated servers.

Game Engine + Network code +[Generic high end gaming rig]= Heavy use of Host resources.

 

unless we get dedicated servers (These cost a LOT/Monthly)

its most likely not going to happen...

 

... Soon.

 

It will happen tho, lets have hope.

I honestly can't see dedicated servers happening with such a huge userbase. It seems like a far too expensive alternative, that would probably require substantial code rewrites as well.

 

I'm not a networking guy so I can't tell you for sure, but that's just what I would expect.

 

Though, to host >4 players Peer-to-peer would not be unfeasible, I don't think. It depends on how much they can optimize their code, and on the PCs being used to play.

I'd rather them have the money to fix, change, and add to the game.
