Servers closing?

Just wondering what the lifespan on COD3 servers are... I just picked up the game but I haven't had much initiative to play it yet. Do you think its servers will close anytime soon, seeing how old this game is?

i played a few games last night, seemed pretty busy to me, no trouble finding a game. So i wouldn't worry just yet.

though, if you're looking to get the Online Acheivements, you'd better get started, just in case...

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I wanted to finish COD2 first but I might as well get the onlines out of the way for 3 first

Are people still playing this online? I just got the game from a friend this week and want to knock off the online achievements quickly.

Thanks!

Quickly? Really? They took me 2 months to get! The quickest time I've seen someone get them is in 3 weeks!

But I doubt that will generate sales much. Most people either have played all of those games already or look at them as "too old". Are the online achieves even worth working towards?

Listen ya smart ass. Back 4 or 5 months ago, there were a ton more antiboosters than there were when I played a month ago. And way more boosters who didn't know what the fuck they were doing. Whenever I flag threw, I gave the other team a good 850 points when their flag thrower gave out team 500. I knew what I was doing but it is harder when A, not everyone playing is boosting or B not everyone knows what they are doing. I'm yet to beat it on veteran but that's cause I haven't tried. Took me forever to get 10K. Then less time for 20K. Then 10 days for 40K. Over the course of two months, I found more boosters playing. It's not always you are a bad booster. It's that I physically put in 2 hours a day when others spent 26 hours a day playing. I have a life outside of my xbox.

Don't think the serveres will ever close unless xbox 360 closes down. Hell Call of Duty 2 is still up cause I felt like trying it's multiplayer out 2 months ago and still people playing that one. lol

Exactly. Once xbox 360 goes, COD3 will go chances are. Don't rely on any "sources" unless it actually is on a valid site.

You need 8 people to boost, yes it's a lot but if there are still many boosters out there in the lobbies you can just keep finding them there till you gather full devoted 8 players and flag boost.

I know I'm coming back to this over a year later. But whatever.

Call of duty doesn't have servers like EA. So they aren't super expensive to run. I doubt they'll close them.

3K post.

If you know anything about the COD series, the servers won't close. It's not like EA servers. I still play COD4 on-line and there are TONS of people still playing it. So I'd say at least 5-8 years
