    The last couple days I've noticed that the WFC server is down. This is the only time it's ever happened since I've gotten the game, and it happened right when FOC released. Is High Moon taking the WFC server down or is it something else?

    I hope they aren't taking it down. As much as I'm having fun with FoC I'd like to know I can still go back and play WFC if I want to.

    Activision wants to save money and if barely anyone is playing it, then what's the point of them keeping the servers on if everyone is playing FOC.
    But... I hope it doesn't turn out to be true!

    I have friends who just got WFC at my recommendation, it's a great game, they're going to be pissed if they can't even play it and get the achievements...

    I hate when companies do that, when you don't even allow for private games or even LOCAL... I mean if there's no servers you can't even play Escalation by yourself, you need to be connected to even start a lobby.

    Crap like this is why High Moon needs to include local multi-player and escalation...

    Since we're on the topic of War's servers, is it possible for other players to tamper with your connection? Last time I played it, I would be winning, then instantly start lagging and get kicked off Xbox Live. This only happened when I played War. I heard of something called an IP Flood but I'm not sure if that's the case.

    I think it is a bad move if they did shut it down. They may be an increase of WFC players in the near future. There are people who maybe didn't play WFC and after they pick up FoC they may want to go back and get WFC. Walmart included a downloadable copy of WFC with FoC for Xbox 360. Then there's the fans that maybe don't like FoC (or just certain elements of it, like Escalation) that prefer to go back to WFC again. I know I'm planning on completely replaying the both campaign modes at one point (still haven't got the achievement for beating the Autobot campaign on hard in WFC!) and I would like to play on the campaign with my nephew that recently got WFC.

    Anybody want to tweet HMS and ask?

    No, I've been playing with a similar number of players on the servers as the last few weeks as before FOC came out. It ain't losing steam, and the servers won't either.

    So activsion is shutting down WFC even though revenge of the fallen has hardley ANY players at all on it?

    This might just be a bug because I haven't been able to get into FOC servers sometimes as it says the FOC servers are shutdown

    No servers are going down. I've played WFC for hours a day including today without issue on my PS3. Give it time to load. sometimes you can't just immediately go into multiplayer without that message of the servers being unavailable. That just means it's loading. trust me. Either that, or your NAT type SUCKS.

    Speaking of NAT, which bargain wireless router can you recommend ?

    I am using a cheap Netgear (forgot the model) but i know it sucks because its firmware cannot be upgraded over the net... but it allows me playing ok except when I tries to host a game, it will complain.

    War for Cybertron (and FoC) are Peer-to-Peer games. The only servers are the ones that keep track of stats.

    They could, theoretically, just shut down the stat keeping servers but have online play still up, since with WfC your online character is saved on your system and not on their servers.
