CC: Infinity Ward's Robert Bowling has revealed that there are a 'Lot's of updates' on the way for Modern Warfare 2.
Good. Get rid of hackers, glitchers, cheaters. I haven't played it for the last few days because of them.
not possible, the game is coded in the same way as COD4. look forward to hacking you can only dream of, I know people working at it atm. blame the developers, not the players
Of course the devs shouldn't let it happen in the first place. But the gamers are cheating. End of.
It's a shame how such a brilliant game can be ruined for people not cheating.
developers should be influenced by their fan base. and you know the funny thing is the people who made all these hacks, well Robert Bowling endorsed them!!!!! http://twitter.com/fourzero...
Only COD games gets a total pass when the developers need to "polish" the game "after" release.
i laughed at that "lots" part, they should of gone into a beta and maybe they wouldn't of had to do so many updates
I think we are at the amazing rate of 2 new hacks per day now ... But of course the game is nothing like cod4 and polished right ?
Compare that to any other game and suddenly you realize that even the best developers throwing huge amount of resources can't compete with the combined effort of the masses. Other than Halo 3, there is no other game that can compare itself to MW2 online community on a console. If anything, MW2 is a victim of its own success!!! There is probably nothing IW could have done to prevent all this. Furthermore, to complicate matters there are two platforms to maintain.
Excuse me if i roll eyes a bit .... There is a certain category of games that actually sometimes got a bigger base than MW2 , got to deal with more data and potential issues : Mmos and well since you mentioned it Halo . Mmos got their fair share of issues especially at launch , but here mw2 take the cake , being a sequel to a game with the same engine , and some of these issues already unresolved the first time around . I blame it on them being pretentious , liars , lack of polish , probably some will to rush and pull through no matter what for november , and related to the ego part , their previous refusal to beta test .
Sounds like a pathetic excuse, they've had very minimal glitches with the first modern warefare 2. They rushed MW2 and it shows. The only victims were the gamers for buying a glitchy game. This would've hurt them a lot if consoles didn't come with harddrives and updates.
Noone likes a cheat. i know a guy that's used the 10th prestige hack and it just ruins the competitive side
does it, all you get is a badge...
I agree with TD on this one. Just because you have a badge next to your name, doesn't indicate your true skill. I have played people who are 3-4 prestige and preform better then them and I am level 69, original rank. All prestige means at this moment is who is playing the game more; not who is better. Some kid in high school or college obviously has more time then people like me with a family and a full-time job. Please explain how the competitive side of the game gets ruined due to the 10th prestige hack?
badge or rank should never ever ever ever ever be used to determine someones skill. On the pc for example in cod4 and bf2 the best players do not play in ranked pubs. If they are in a pub they are usually really really low rank and end up dominating the pub scrub all-stars. The stupidest thing an online gamer could ever do is try and gauge someone's skill based on a rank or badge.
Well considering how many hacks n glitches I've seen since launch, I'd expect 'Lot's of updates in the works' -.-
It's funny that he doesn't state the updates or address what they are fixing. Because then he would have to come right out and say. Yes, we have major issues and tons of cheating / hacking going on.
Exactly.. This news has been right up there with Tiger...
About time? They have been addressing all issues instantaneously. I wish they had a public beta to get rid of these before launch, but they have been on the ball working on updates. These things don't happen over night.
you mean some of the same problem they didnt even adress with cod4 ? wich they later ditched since too busy wioh MW2 ? Dont mind me if i'm not holding my breath here .
I'm done with it now. I'll play special ops on occasion maybe, but I can't really be bothered with the multiplayer.
I'll be honest with you... I read "bowling" and clicked on the article expecting something about a bowling game. I think I'm more excited for a bowling game...
Bowling is actually really fun, loved playing it in wii sports with buds and beers
Pretty much finished with MW2 now, my attention span isn't what it used to be. Prestige a few times, done veteran SP/Spec Ops. That's plenty for me. Next...
Beta testing would've fixed this issue. Well maybe not fix but wouldn't be nearly as bad as it is right now.
It's not only glitching and the works, the online is broken in many ways. I'm in a party of six, count down till game begins: game begins and I'm in a totally different game! SPEC OP can't play with anyone because it lags beyond all belief and it's not my connection. IW fix this mess.
PATCHES! The word they are looking for is patch. An update adds stuff while a patch fixes the many problems MW2 has.
Terribly developed piece or rubbish. Hack away kids, hack away.
Or naughty dog developers. Those games were perfect. They had almost zero bugs.
How come socom got dogged by the media for all of its flaws (which were substantial and more game breaking that COD's are for sure i admit) yet COD has essentially gotten a free pass from the larger media sites regarding the flaws?
The funny thing is people are like "chill out dude it's only temporary , it will be fixed soon ! dont be a hater!" etc etc .. As if they didnt spend money for it ... and if during the said "soon" time period , if aware of it , they couldnt have enjoyed a working game instead ... then later bought the thing once fixed , if fixed , at a cheaper price :p . Hell that's what i might do , if comes next year i even care or get paste my "angst" . But doubtful with the incoming flood of good stuff , and so few days of BC bad company 2 beta left .
So far since the last update these are the problems i've noticed (for the 360 ver.) Ability to fire with out having to reload including m203 and AT4. 9 vs. 9 While playing search and destroy and while playing search and Destroy everyone in the match gets kicked out into the lobby screen that is set up for a private match. I'm sure more bugs exist but I play TDM and S&D mainly.
Maybe if they had Beta tested their software like other companies do they wouldn't have to put out a half dozen patches inside the first 6 months.
LOTS OF UPDATES LOTS OF UPDATES LOTS OF UPDATES LOTS OF UPDATES LOTS OF UPDATES !!! Not Lot's of updates. Why are idiots allowed to publish articles?
