    It does not. It now means that a server runs just that program, instead of a client running the client and server.

    Take Bad Company 2 for instance. You can rent servers from their approved vendors. So, while they are technically dedicated servers, they are someone else's servers that are just being rented. The traditional commands available to server admins are no longer there. Basically, for BC2, "dedicated servers" means that we get to pay for their servers.

    Many of the less policed servers had blatant advertisements from the people writing the hack. You'd login and start playing and every few minutes someone would just come out of nowhere and you'd just die instantly. You see them make an obnoxious ansi color text down in the public chat line something like

    Scrooge just got a HEADSHOT on FreshMeat using BabyBot 2.0. visit us at

    They would say other things when it was the hacker "manually" killing someone while they had their wallhack on. Autoaim for headshots, autoknife, auto grenade return, and wallhacks made it a very unpleasant experience.

    I saw maybe five different varieties of bots on a pretty constant basis. Google "call of duty bots" for all the bots you care (not) to see.

    But you got one thing right, ya I do suck ;) But this made me suck MORE and enjoy it LESS. I don't mind so much getting tooled, but when it's a script kiddie with a $15/mo subscription to one of these bots delivering me a headshot every time I so much as see them, it's really annoying. (yes, many of them work on subscription basis)
