According to Robert Bowling, a new 'hardcore' playlist for Modern Warfare 2 will be arriving on Wednesday.
Can't wait to check this out XD 'Hardcore Ricochet: HQ Pro'
What could it be??
I won't play it, or any other MW2 mode, unless they fix the complete BS lag that ONLY occurs in CoD4 and MW2! Almost all of MW2's maps suck too and the crazy killstreaks make everyone camp so they can go on a long streak to earn them. CoD went from Run n Gun, to Sit n Wait. If you try to Run n Gun, you get killed from 3 different angles from people camping with assault rifles. CoD4's multiplayer and campaign are WAAAY better than MW2's and every single XBL and PSN friend I have agree with me. MW2 failed HARD IMO! Most disappointing game this year IMO. I'm trading it in for Left 4 Dead 2 of all games.
If you are having connection problems, try resetting your modem and router. If you have a wireless, make sure it is encrypted. As far as camping goes, I know it's a videogame, but in real war situations, an enemy won't just run around shooting at you! They want to get you without you knowing and try to take out your buddies as well. Remembering the good hiding spots and using the Thumper usually solve these problems. I kind of like it when they camp, because that's when I sneak up behind them! The multiplayer maps can feel a bit too much, but it helps to create a good environment of "I don't know what to expect"... a.k.a.... "Paranoia". The feeling that you have are common for gamers who play a game that they feel like they can't dominate in. But at the same time you probably have never been in a real life gunfight and more importantly never shot a real gun before. I agree, I loved MW 1 in almost every way, but I got tired of the maps because they didn't provide enough ways to penetrate your enemies defenses. Everyone would post up and get you. The only way to beat them was to go on the snipe and throw grenades just to break through. MW 2, they don't have that comfort. No matter how good your hiding spot is, you will be killed if you don't move. As far as kill streaks, If you were in the middle of a battle and an enemy helicopter came in, would you just say, "I quit, their cheating"...? No, because you don't get that luxury. I know the game is arcadey, but I truely don't know what you guys were expecting?
"I won't play it, or any other MW2 mode, unless they fix the complete BS lag that ONLY occurs in CoD4 and MW2!" Get a better ISP or upgrade your router. I have lag from time to time but nothing to keep me from playing the game. "Almost all of MW2's maps suck too and the crazy killstreaks make everyone camp so they can go on a long streak to earn them. CoD went from Run n Gun, to Sit n Wait. If you try to Run n Gun, you get killed from 3 different angles from people camping with assault rifles." If you think COD has ever had a game where there were no campers then you sir have never played the other COD games. They have had campers from day one so don't give me this sob story. Play the game as if you were up against campers and stalk them out. Play right and you might actually get good at the game. "CoD4's multiplayer and campaign are WAAAY better than MW2's and every single XBL and PSN friend I have agree with me." You sound like a child talking this way. I have yet to hear a sing person tell me that COD4 was better than MW2 and I have dozens of friends on my list and a clan of over 25. The game is a vast improvement over COD4 although COD4 was absolutely amazing. This game only made the play more amazing. "MW2 failed HARD IMO! Most disappointing game this year IMO. I'm trading it in for Left 4 Dead 2 of all games." Please do, then I don't have to come across you in a lobby and have to put up with your b*tching... IMHO.
I've had almost zero lag on the PSN..... Not starting anything, just saying.
first person team tactical please :( me and my friends miss this mode so much we know its in 3rd person but we dont care! we want fps!
Ohh please. I am a sniper type of player. I sit around in maps camo'd with my intervention in hand and silencer with FMJ. It's not that dissapointing btw.
Couldn't agree more I loved Team tactical on CoD4. I wish they had a FPV for MW2 as well.
I don't need to get a new ISP or router. My internet is 12 mbps which is WAY faster than just about every other gamer and my router is capable of up to 24 mbps. Some people might say "12 is slow! I get 100!" but that's because they don't know what they're talking about. Every time your PC connects to the internet after a cord had been unplugged or your internet temporarily went out, it say something like "Connection is now connected. Speed: 100 Mbps." even though 100 mbps isn't even available. Some people base their speed off of that message alone. Even if my internet wasn't good enough for MW2, why should I upgrade my internet for ONE game? My internet works perfectly for every other game so it's not my error, it's IW/Activisionss. There are tons and tons and tons of threads around the internet title "MW2 sucks" and CoD4 owns MW2" etc. There are a lot of people disappointed in this game. Yes, I know CoD4 has SOME campers but just about EVERYBODY camps in MW2. In CoD4, campers would be bashed get tons of trash talk thrown at them but in MW2, camping is what everybody does so almost no one complaints. It's funny how you say I sound like a kid for saying "All my friends say the same thing" but then you go and repeat that and say you're dozens of friends and clan member say the opposite. So if I sound like a little kid, so do you.
Roebert bowling is a ~censored~
How can you dislike robert bowling but support cliffy B ( hence your avatar). Cliffy b RUINED gears 2.
It's funny, this game has been out about two weeks and we're all desprate for some fresh blood in it, i'm glad that IW has been supporting it like they have.
Cool :D Wednesday huh? Gotta check this out.
Oh wow! So amazing! A new playlist - whatever will they think of next? /sarcasm You know with dedicated servers GAMERS would be setting the playlists and there would be a much larger variety. But no - console tards just want a big button that says "play" because looking at a list is too complicated for them.
ya I lol'd.
@Thor... Still mad because less than 5% of PC owners actually pay for games and the others pirate them, causing developers to place PC gaming as a second thought? Yes, us console gamers want a big button to press. PC gamers are used to wasting alot of time. People like me just want to play and move on to something else.
It doesn't take any more time. In fact it takes less time because you're not randomly thrown into a server where it's too laggy to play. Matchmaking = choose the top server from the list. 5% is a MASSIVE exaggeration. I pay for my PC games. Kicking PC gamers in the balls is NOT the way to combat piracy. You've only confirmed that you're too stupid to cope with a list of servers rather than a "list" of just 1 server. You shouldn't settle for less.
"You've only confirmed that you're too stupid to cope with a list of servers rather than a "list" of just 1 server. You shouldn't settle for less." Unlike you pc tards, we know that b*tching and moaning won't solve anything, and that devs won't change their mind over a few players complaining. So we don't waste our time like you do not playing games, we actually play them and have fun. Maybe not as much fun as we could be having, but fun nonetheless. So go back to your little boycott brigade and pretend to be doing something important.
Well you've just confirmed that you are HAPPY to settle for less. In fact those are pretty much your exact words. I will say to you - we don't expect IW to suddenly change the game to include dedicated servers. That would be too much work for them. We just want it known that any FUTURE game should feature them. Already we've seen DICE come out and ADVERTISE the fact that BF:BC2 has dedicated servers. Just because my humble opinion won't make a difference in the grand scheme of things doesn't mean I should shut up and accept everything I'm spoonfed. You obviously feel differently.
HC FFA next!!! haha
Yeah this is what I'm waiting for
Nice, I'm loving MW2 at the minute, no game as made the long days at work so difficult to bare this year for me and hardcore is how I like to play it. 2 ranks off my second prestige :)
I think there are some people that are even higher prestiges than that. I wish I had that kind of time.
Anyone else having problems with merging a party lobby into the main lobby?
MW2 is awesome.. But The camping Ive seen is crazy.. About half of the Domination games I play.. Even though my team has 2 flags to their one.. The other team doesnt even try and grab any more flags and they just camp at their one flag and protect it?? Domo is my fav style game to play because its suppose to encourage run n gun.. Other than camping and surprisingly Lack of guns.. I really love this game.. Besides the Scar, all the other new guns are terrible.. I thought my P90 was gonna be put in the closest, but it turns out to be just as deadly in this one Edit: One more thing, They said you get something for prestiging this time.. Any who has Prestiged tell me what it is? Because if its nothing special, I dont see the point.. Again
You get an extra class slot, like in World at War, icons next to your name, and prestige challenges.
hopefully, this new game type is a focused attack on "Campers" and people that do nothing but look for game exploits. Although I LOVE these types of people...(It keeps me motivated and never getting that feeling of boredom.) It does take the fun out of the game. I'm not saying that people should play these console shooters like Quake, Unreal, Counter Strike, or Doom...but the hiding/camping is very lame. Just imagine how whack this game would be if only the winning team got XP points? (You think people were crying in Halo....) I also wish that IW would let the person you kill hear you for a second or two..and can see you "tea bag" them! (THE NUMBER ONE THING I LOVED ABOUT THE HALO GAMES!!!!!!) I want people to know that I caught them slipping. (LOL) PLEASE IW...include this in the update!
I prefer the FAMAS over the M16 Discuss
But my bread'n'butter lately has been the Scar-H Just got 1000 kills with it last night for a 10,000 point bonus! Ans Also Hardcire FTW. I hate regular where you have to empty half your mag just to get a kill.
I maxed out the SCAR and now I started using the M16, just like in the first game. They both rock. In fact, I think those two guns are the only ones that aren't useless on normal modes...every other rifle barely does any damage...until you unlock the AK-47. I normally play hardcore, so the power of the gun isn't that important, but I need to learn the maps more before I go into that mode.
Ive maxed out the FAMAS M16 M4 and the HUBAR or what ever its called its a light machine gun newho next is AK and maybe a couple submachine guns.
Don't really like Hardcore Headquarters, way too many team kills for my taste.
Why are they wasting time with new game modes when host migration and matchmaking are so broken for players outside the US. It has been two weeks and Robert still hasn't once addresses these community concerns.
complaining about campers or grenade spammers or snipers or noob tubers or what ever its is you got killed by in ur last match its called variety who in the hell wants everyone to play the same everyone thinking there rambo going aaaaAAARRGH as they run around shooting.I play how i want to play sometimes i go on the hunt sometimes i camp some times i get out my toob and have some fun i play to have fun and if my mood takes me to a hidey place to shoot a retard that keeps coming down the same path to get shot him getting more enraged each time then so be it then again sometimes i go looking for the campers find where there paying rent in some building and throw in a flash bang and stab there face.I can bet all of you moaners that if you wherent getting your arses handed to you by there ppl that camp or noob tube or snipe there would be no complaints at all.Look at S&D matches if your the defending team your meant to camp not go running off and get killed thats why ur called the DEFENDING team ur meant to defend not attack thats what the ATTACKING team is for.All in all play how you wanna play if you keep getting owned by a camper adapt and find a way to get him no cry like a b#tch.
