i sent an email to valve regarding the lag issues on TF2 on the 360.. i also asked what was being done on HL2: EP3.(i asked if headcrabs are gonna be called snow crabs) this is what he said
Thanks so much for you kind words, it’s always nice to hear when someone enjoys a product that we worked so hard on! Your question about dedicated servers for TF2 is a good one, but I don’t really have a good answer. It would be very difficult at this point to make a change like that in a title update. That said, we are exploring a dedicated server option for Left 4 Dead, and there’s always the possibility that we could bring that back to TF2. The best advice I can give you right now is to find some good hosts that have decent connections and don’t drop games, and stick with them as much as possible.
All I can say about EP3 is that there is some very exciting work going on right now. Is that enough of a tease?
Dedicated servers on TF2 360? left 4 dead has em? exciting work!? you tease me enough!
