CC: Battlefield: Bad Company 2 executive producer Charles Magnusson has claimed that the games online multiplayer mode is "simply" better than that of Modern Warfare 2.
Too many exploits that need to be patched. MW2 online, at its core, is great fun, but it is badly broken and needs to be fixed.
A mess, you could say :)
Well Mr. Magnusson can make that claim because quite frankly...it is better.
but In the End, whatever I think of mw2\bc2 and whatever anyone think about them,.... competition is great, oh so great I liked bc2 and like I said it has a different approach than mw2, it's meaty, wide open, beautiful and destructive while mw2 has brilliant fast paced small-mid size battles with addictive perks\kill streaks\unlocks
you had me convinced at M1A1 Abrams. midnight.
I was in the PS3 beta and back then, in its beta phase, it was already more polished than Modern Welfare 2.
"As it is now, almost anything is better than MW2 Too many exploits that need to be patched. MW2 online, at its core, is great fun, but it is badly broken and needs to be fixed." I don't know what everyone's b!tching about as far as glitches and what not. Mitchell, like everyone who cries about glitches, campers and snipers really just sound like you just plain suck at the game and that your frustration makes you hate it. Also people say the games online is broken, someone explain this to me? Online is perfect, i have no issues getting into matches and I rarely experience lag. The a game is #1 in the world, people will always find a way to hate
I enjoy MW2 often with my friends, and I'm not half-bad at it either. However, there is a difference between hating and complaining. How about respawning only to be gunned down 3 seconds later by a chopper gunner who, due to bullet penetration, can hit you through a building? How about this happening over 5 times in a row? How about someone exploiting the care package glitch to get more than one chopper gunner and other benefits per match? No amount of skill can save you from that. Does it happen every match? No. Does it happen enough that I can effortlessly recap it to you like above? Yep. Should it happen that much? Absolutely not. The #1 game in the world is always hated? No, the #1 game in the world is played often enough that exploits and glitches become apparent and quite relevant, and need to be balanced out in order for it to remain equal to everyone. Someone is always trying to buck the system, to find a crack and open it up; it just so happens that with MW2 there are many cracks because it's broken. There's even videos on Youtube of people doing extremely well with over 100 kills and under 20 deaths per match, and they too complain that this must be fixed. Unfortunately, it seems like Infinity Ward is the one company you can complain to that won't heed the complaints and try to fix them. They need to find and fix all these cracks before everyone learns how to open them up. Even still, it's a good game with a great online component. Overrated and overhyped but still fun to play with friends.
But I agree, :) Different...but better
@ AuburnTiger and your the gamer at the other extreme end who always thinks that just because their game is fine and they dont have connection problems, the rest of gamers online must be crap or the problem is just theirs. The game is broken in so many ways it's not even funny, must of the people who don't have isseus with it are the ones exploiting it. There are a million videos on you-tube showing this, if you want to pretend they are all wrong thats cool. I loved cod4 and was ranked 4000th on live with a kd ratio of 2.64 before i stopped playing it. when MW2 came out I was ranked 10,000th over the first few weeks with kd of 2.31. I am not saying i am the best player in the world, but I get enough hate messages from people to know that I am ok at the game and hardly suck at it or anything like that. As the other guy said above, at it's core it's fun, but when it comes to the game, it has way more issues then the original ever had and yes some things on it are broken.
BC2 is awesome
I suppose I'm lucky. Was one of the first people to try it out :) Back in early October 2009 XD
Them ain't fighting words, it's da troof!
Truer words have never been spoken. I just had the most epic moment I've had in any game. Ever. I sniped the pilot out of an Apache, and the thing turned sideways and smashed into the 3 story house in the first section of the Port Valdez map. There was a giant explosion with helicopter bits everywhere, and then the house collapsed killing the gunner of the chopper who had somehow survived the crash. My life is now complete. It's sh1t like this that makes me wish Battlefield Bad Company 2 had a recording thing where you could go back and re-live your awesome Battlefield Moments... But yeah. You're never going to have those awesome, epic moments in a little game like Modern Warfare 2.
Dude, you need to play Uncharted 2 if you liked your little helicopter moment.
Please keep your linear shooter-lite out of this discussion. This is not the time or the place to talk about Tomb Raider...I mean Uncharted.
lol look at the ps3 fangals disagree agreed man this is no place for tombraider 1.5
Seem as you offended some pc fantards ;-)
I killed pilot twice as well but no epic moment like that. Both time they just crashed on mountain. 48 dog tags and still counting :D
hah I've had an epic moment similar to that with me ground pounding as usual and the blackhawk comes to our spawn and starts ripping infantry to shreds. I switch to grenade launcher and pop one up praying the battlefield gods smile upon me. He begins to to move to my right and my nade is going to miss. :( From somewhere behind me someone fired a rocket and its traveling along the same path as my nade. I'm disappointed because it seems like we both missed. But wait! The Battlefield Moments god has indeed smiled upon me! My nade hits the rocket or the rocket hits my nade directly beside the tail rotor of the blackhwak! A huge explosion in mid-air occurs. It was enough to send the blackhawk out of control and a squad of 4 to their doom before they had enough time to eject. ingame chat from the helo crew looks like this EnemySquadmate1: "ummmmmmmmmm?" EnemySquadmate2: "lol wtf?" Me: "Hilarious!" as far as EA's comment...IW doesn't have to try and make a game better than mw2. They already did. They are called cod2 and cod4
The only moment I remember is getting my black hawk's tail stuck under an oil pipe. I was like a fish caught in a net. The entire team just stood there watching and laughing. :D
Is that the best people could really do to put down Uncharted 2? Calling it Tomb Raider 1.5? No imagination from kids at all these days.
So far my most epic moment is blindly shooting the laser guided missile from the base to the drop zone and killing someone, sadly I didn't get to see them die, just a 50+ lol. This sh!t cracks me up! http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Uncharted 2's helicopter scene is scripted, this was a completely random moment in a multiplayer game. Very different.
LOL, I find the banter back and forth like this great. We won't know though until the game releases!
The banter between the players was really cool in the Battlefield Moments trailers. They're almost non-existant in the actual game though. Although I'd blame that on people not using the back button enough.
EA says so but Dice are not even interested in beating MW2. Dice just want to make the best game possible. EA is a publisher I can see why they would say it.
Just like the BFBC2 version for the PS3 will be better than the Xbox 360 version.
Ever since the first time I played the beta I've known that BFBC2 is in a whole different LEAGUE than MW2. The future of FPS gaming will be a game like BFBC2 with the scope of MAG. And we know it's possible, and it CAN happen....but definitely not on the 360... Since they cant even get 5v5 right without lag.
just like the BFBC2 version for the PC will be superior to the Xbox 360 and PS3 version :P
ill save some $ and get the superior pc version.
But mw2 has solid matchmaking it works with no questions asked I hope that bc2 has good matchmaking because that is what will make or break it for me I know the first one didnd do anything for me!
lol solid matchmaking
Match making? What are you, 12? You can't hit a Play Now button or look through a server browser?
IW.net matches on PING only, and its funny how it starts at a 50ms search and almost always matches at 90+ ms, which by PC gamers standards, is pretty high(GG sh!tty console FPS listen server), most dedicated servers I'm playing on for BC2 are sub 20ms.
What did you expect an EA representitive to say? "Yeah BF:BC2 MP is good but MW2 w**ks all over us" :D MW2 is the best MP by far on the xbox 360, I've got over 70 friends on live now and I've never seen so many people playing a game for so long, its been 3 months now and most of my friends are still playing MW2 nightly. Its a great laugh with friends and I belive it won't be beaten until the next MW2 game comes out, things may be broken but IW have it nailed when it comes to and exhilirating addictive multiplyer experiance. It's not everyones cup of tea, the same goes for everything but I doubt MW2 will be knocked off the top of the xbox live chart any time soon.
The first MW was truly amazing and innovative, but i think MW2 is only riding the hypetrain from the first. I felt as they tried to much and it became a mess.
I racked up 4d's on COD4 anf got bored, 3d's on [email protected] and got bored. I'm currently 7d's on MW2, so IMO MW2 is the best COD game in series (Console versions anyway COD1 and UO are my all time favirotes :P ). I think this is becuase the game is slicker, the maps and game types are more veried, the challenges/titles/emblems/pres tige's keep me comming back for more, this with all my xbox live firneds loving the game and having mass 9v9 ground war matches with all of us on mics make it a great game even after over 168 hours of gameplay! (I should get out more :S)
I thought this was common knowledge at this point.
So much better than you can't even have your computer controlled soldier lay down prone....
It's a good thing, limits the no skill campers to zero chance of survival.
only campers are upset about it, BFBC2 will not miss you.
Strange I spent most of my time getting shot by camping snipers in the BF:BC2 demo. Just becuase you can't go prone doesn't mean it wont turn into a camp fest. This was the attackers camping btw, and they didnt even take the first 2 objectives in the whole game. Fun? :|
"only campers are upset about it, BFBC2 will not miss you. " Right because there are ZERO campers in BFBC2 right??? RIGHT???
BFBC2 has enough camping recons. IMO, it's better without it.
I wouldn't doubt it
anything right now is better than modern campfare poo...the online is broken and the story mode was short...cod4 was wayyy better...im so glad uc2 beat it for GOTY
is what is coming 3/2/10!!!MW2 NOOBS R.I.P
Better than MW2? without a doubt it is head and shoulders above MW2 but then any multiplayer game is compared to MW2, noughts and crosses is better than MW2
Definitely better than MW2, there is virtually no comparison. MW2 is a game MADE for NOOBs, there is no doubt, just think about why NoobTubes are the only explosive not to take over grenades. I know why....FOR NOOBS! Also, there are just no epic moments in MW2, anyone that has played BFBC2 has "something" to say, about what they have accomplished. What have they got to say about MW2, other than it being crap... "I managed to knife someone on the other side of the map using Commando!" just WOW.
