Modern Warfare 2: New Game Mode? Barebones Playlist impressions.

Well, I don’t know what was going through IW’s mind in creating a “Barebones Pro” game mode. It allows for 4-8 players to partake in Team Deathmatch and Free for all. The problem is, with this new game mode, a minimum of 4 players can freely boost or play ranked private matches with each other. What a way to eliminate boosting, eh? Well, either way, this game mode eliminates killstreaks in the process. With this, there is no air support to be worried about whatsoever.

I dont like it, cause they should of put disable attachments, perks, but Treyarch (I know it isnt the same company but they USE the SAME engine) said *they* cant currently disable attachments, but they can only disable Killstreaks and perks. Cant disable attachments.

That's the beautiful thing about this idea of 5-10 default classes. We wouldn't decide. You would. The collective you, that is.

Either way, as I've stated before, we currently don't have the ability to disable attachments, or the ability to disable Create A Class and then 5-10 default classes at the playlist level, where this would need to be done.

Of course those things can be done in code, or script, for debugging purposes. Disabling features for debugging purposes is a completely different animal than shipping a game feature, however.

All we could do on World at War is disable killstreaks and perks. That's why this conversation is so critical.

I hope you know how we roll by now. If it's simple, testable, supportable, shippable, and a good idea, we try and go for it.

Why they haven't removed the Tactical Insertion perk is beyond me. It has completely ruined Free For All matches.

It's like they want their game to be a giant boosting cluster f**k, or something.

Seriously, if someone from IW is reading this, explain yourselves.

I sort of agree, but to disable killstreaks is ok, but they should also disable deathstreaks.
I mean me and my team spawn trapped a team, they all had painkiller, took soo many bullets to get a kill.
I dont understand why they havent nerfed painkiller?
Everyone hates it, and yet nothing is done.
The best part of MW2 apart from it being unbalanced, when you are doing bad you get rewarded...WTF, thats like saying someone who has a job at selling magazines, cant sell any and then gets a raise.
Yea ok

They just don't know what to do to keep COD players into MW2

How about getting rid of super elite commandos & infinite noob tubing for starters. That would be hella cool. Than I could play it again. And while they are at it reduce the price tag for those map packs. But I doubt any of this will get fixed.

I'm completely fine with that. If there was a way to just implement those 3 kill streaks in call of duty 4 I would love that.

Removing capture the flag for this is complete BS
