Great Classic, owned this game for years.
Custom Servers are garbage.

Whoever owns a kick tool are considered a person whose claiming to be owners of a server.
Nobody likes custom servers on Call of Duty.

Secondly, Official Servers are so much more better, less hackers than most custom servers owned by owners of abuse.
Most of the time when i play on official servers, the second a killcam goes onto a hacker, he's instantly VAC-Banned.

When i play custom servers, sometimes owners actually abuse their kicking tools because of the amount of jealousy.
Of being better than the owners, its ridiculous how many owners lies about their abuse on kick-tools.

Bringing up some garbage about someone doing or saying some offensive stuff, in-game,
As if nobody has done that in almost every game in existance lol, trash server owners.

Get gud.

Bought this in the Humble Store.
Which conveniently failed to mention that the game would be the censored version for me. Now, censorship is a nuisance in general, don't get me wrong, but I wouldn't be that ticked off by that - except it's ALSO LOCKED TO GERMAN. That is a complete and utter deal breaker, sorry. I will NOT play this game under these circumstances.

I loved this game back when it came out in 2009 and continue to love it now in 2016. I've seen many people complaining about Hackers in multiplayer, although there is an unhealthy amount of hackers in game, I never let that ruin my experince. If you notice that you've joined a lobby that doesn't seem "vanilla", simpley quit the lobby and find yourself a new one.
If you're willing to purchase this game, be willing to give it some time, if you enjoyed playing it back when it came out, you would enjoy playing it now. Although there arn't as many people playing the game, it's still enough to fill the lobbies.
