After Infinity Ward's decision to omit dedicated servers from the PC version of Modern Warfare 2, an initially small modding community set out to find a work-around. A few months after release, alterIWNet was made public, allowing players to access features they would normally be able to use on dedicated servers.
The mod's development team stated that alterIWNet would be shutdown "indefinitely" by the end of this week, and that they were in legal "negotiations" regarding possible copyright infringement with the Call of Duty publisher.
