So when I get my copy Tuesday I am going to be running into a bunch of prestige level 10 players.

Good job IW.

IW doesn't stop impressing me they're the best /s

wildcat2931d ago (Edited 2931d ago )

Well since those who have an early copy are the minority, technically there will be much more people who are just beginning from an even playing field come Tuesday. So the chances of running into a leveled-up player will become pretty slim as they get over-flooded with the millions who purchase from day one.

Well, just another broken promise.

UltimateIdiot9112931d ago

I say the better choice is to not support IW. It's obvious they think they are hot stuff and can do whatever they want especially to the PC community. Console gamers need to fight back like the PC gamers otherwise other devs and publisher will continue to hurt the consumers.

StanLee2931d ago

That is so not fair. I'm really beginning to dislike everything about this game. Reseting the multiplayer is the only thing that makes sense. Those players who got the game early still would have a great advantage by knowing the maps and spawns. This is just BS. Fcuk Infinity Ward and Activision for this.

I have no desire to buy MW2, BUT, I will give it a try. I also had 4 friends within a 2 day period get their X360s banned because of this game, and it will soon be 5 LMFAO.

ReservoirDog3162931d ago

Really, how hard is it to reset it and be fair. I'm good but I don't play multiplayer enough to be on the leaderboards. But a few of people on my friends list are good enough to be on it. Now they're hurt by this.

Buy it used!

Blaze9292931d ago (Edited 2931d ago )

Ha they can tell who is/was on a pirated copy. If they can't reset leaderboards just say so, no need to lie about it.

I guarantee the friends I have on LIVE who pirated the game will not have there ranks reset.

But if they really can do it, its silly they won't do it for everyone. It isnt fair that some people got the game early and will be light years ahead when everyone was supposed to be equal come launch date.

Blasphemy2931d ago

Well if there is one thing IW does right it is balance the weapons. Even in CoD 4 I mostly used a MP5 and that's one of the first weapons you get in the game.

PtRoLLFacE2931d ago

Lol been playing with some lvs 30s to 42s so far, the problem with this games is the starting weapons the suk and and a lot people will get frustrted when they get own by lv 40 with an m16

Saaking2931d ago

IW is seriously pissing me off.

vhero2931d ago

hahahaha like they know who the pirates are on 360 lol. As for PS3 owners well thats just unfortunate. However if you ain't found out how to get games before release date by now anyways then its your own fault its easy enough to do using online services. GAME in UK are the worst for sending out games early to make sure you get in time for release date.

IW has to right to ban ppl with legit copies of the game .. seriously if u had someone who says he will sell u the game and u are dying to playing the game u will buy it .. i would i wont lie .. so if someone was ment to be punished it should be the retailers.. not the gamers..

RedPawn2931d ago

LMFAO, I just told a 100% truthful story, and upset people. The 5th person I was referring to was another good friend of mine, and MW2 was never on my radar of games to purchase/play.

I'll just wait for a used copy to run through the campaign once.

Xbox Avatars Shoe2931d ago

It's going to be so cool running around with Slight of Hand with my M4 while I get owned by high ranks with Bling, super powerful guns and crazy kill streaks /sarcasm

Just because people bought a legit copy, doesn't mean they should get away without punishment for playing the game a week early.
