    Yep, I said it, I was looking at the new website again to see if anything new was added. I noticed on the page where it said it was to have 16 player multiplayer, its now been changed to 12 player multiplayer...

    So either the writer made a mistake or High Moon's still working out how many players there going to have.

    Did they add co-op back in? That would rule.

    No, they didn't add co-op. Adding co-op would require every single player mission be remade. It's not happening. Get over it.

    Most likely someone made a typo the first time. E3 is incoming and details will emerge.

    If this is the case, I hope the maps are smaller. Molten is my favorite in WFC; perfect size IMO and it astonishes me when people veto it, only to play on Orbital Debris yet...a-fuckin...'gain.

    I don't know... In molten a lot of the action was in the center. Complex was a good map but I think my favourite was Gorge. Seed of Destruction was horribly designed in my opinion.

    Complex and Gorge are equally good IMO. Seed of Destruction is actually my favorite level to play as a Soldier on for some reason. But usually when I play on Molten, the action is all over the place plus I guess I've just grown attached to it by playing the demo so long before getting the game. :p

    I love Gorge. At first, I could never play it well, but now I can consistently get high Kill/Death ratios.

    Well, no longer Motorstorm level MP size.

    But who gives a crap when we still have more people than five a team?

    If this is true it just makes it that much easier to not buy the game.

    dammit. i hate this. it is supposed to be a war. i want teams of 20! 50! 100!

    why can't they just, i dunno, make the server better so it can handle all the players?

    There are a lot of reasons games put the limits they do on the multiplayer numbers. In short, it's all about providing the best experience with the system available. The consoles cannot support a 20 vs 20 game. The latency between all players would make that unplayable. This is the same reason there are practically no FPS MMOs. The hardware itself likely cannot even support that many players. A console is actually a mediocre PC (in general) that has been specifically tuned for gaming. Developers in general are pushing the hardware to its limits. The reason the games at the end of the consoles life are superior to those at its birth is because of tricks learned over the years to get even more out of it.

    But the shortest answer as to why you cannot have that many players is because the consoles cannot support it.

    I'm glad. I was concerned about weather or not my internet connection could handle sixteen player matches.

    Is the Playstation in need for a major update? The small server power is ridiculous

    I thought the server power was based on how well the servers for the game you're playing is?

    Oh well, PS4 = soon.

    The main problem is, this isn't just the generic models from an fps, this is different colored, differently modeled (especially now with parts customization), transformable characters.

    That's why the matches sizes are so small.
