Infinity Wards community manager, Robert Bowling, has confirmed that the upcoming patch for Modern Warfare 2 will only focus on removing the hacking, from the title.
They're still patching this game?! WHAT!?
Why would they try to balance the game when MW3 is coming out in November. Activision would never allow that.
Well, they did patch COD4 near MW2's release when PS3 was hit with those hacks. BTW, there WAS a balance patch according to IW but they scrapped it because Activision made them cancel it. It was around when BO came out so you could expect that if true, Activision wanted to focus attention on Black Ops. I remember following fourzerotwo and hearing about Commando tweaks, etc. but it never happened.
The game is only a year old so yes I expect them to continue to support this game.
This is some refreshing news.
Yeah i see it now. "MW3 NOW HAS BALANCING! No we didnt add anything else to the franchise, SO BUY IT!" lol Either way. Goodbye Cheaters! you will not be missed.
Lol i didn't even know there were still people AT Infinity Ward yet alone Robert.
just stop playing COD and that'll be your patch...it helped me
I agree with that one. lol.
And for those who do not jump on hate bandwagons?
keep playing the same exact game with over-priced map packs
Oh yes because anyone who play COD obviously buys the over priced map packs >.> you my friend, are a tool. Anyway no one moaned when Killzone 3 was the same as KillZone 2, you see a sequel funnily enough is SUPPOSED to play like it predecessor.
You can just stay on the 'I support lazy money grabs' wagon.
COD has gone through 4 different versions on ps3, killzone has gone through 2, and the differences between every COD game are small, besides kz3 is a direct sequel to kz2, COD games (besides cod4 and mw2) aren't sequels, they're supposed to be different, but they're not even upgrades
"killzone has gone through 2, and the differences between every COD game are small" yeah true,but killzone hasn't really changed that much as well but sequels really don't change at all and some of the things that did change was a down grade no in game music,no server instead you get match making ect and well we all know whats up with cod,i really don't think one game is better then the outher they both bring something different to the table.i do enjoy the odd rounds of kz and cod but im a battlefield man my self lol battlefield is my addiction,so fun with friends.
"Anyway no one moaned when Killzone 3 was the same as KillZone 2, you see a sequel funnily enough is SUPPOSED to play like it predecessor." A sequel is also supposed to be better then the game before it, something KZ3 is, and something every CoD hasn't been since CoD 4.
"just stop playing COD and that'll be your patch" lol comment of the day...
Hahahahah!!!!!! Well said 2fk @NBT91... How is KZ3 like Kz2? In fact its so different that many of the Veterans players are turning away from the game. Gone are the realistic reload times, the heavy feeling of the weapons and the recoils. However, they still manage to keep a bit of weight and all weapons still feel different. Something COD still can't do. You obviously have not played the game. Killzone innovates over its predecessors, COD imitates its previous self.
I have KillZone 3 and do not get me wrong, it is a fantastic game, but I also have KZ2 and to me it just feels the same. Like I said, its good (certainly it is the Game to be playing for PS3 owners right now). I really like the PS3 iterations of KillZone (I am General for KZ2, hope to get to the same on 3 and am bout 20 something now) and finished campaign for both. But I thought they felt way similar and if it is a problem or COD then it should be a problem for this too. Although I would not say it is even a bad thing at all
@NBT91... The campaign feels the same, but I feel the online has changed drastically. Gone are the spawn grenades, and you can't combine abilities, like boost and tact, repair and tact, etc. I miss this. I'm not saying its completely different, but enough is new in there to make you learn new things about each character's strengths and weaknesses and their role in the objectives. But they are more fundamental differences... like the feel of the game, and the new modes. Pure death match, pure objectives, and the good old warzone. However, even warzone has changed. The maps are smaller and so is the player count. COD (IMO) hasn't done anything different or new in a log time. Try going back to KZ2 after playing KZ3 and see how different they really are. I find KZ2 so much harder now that I've played 3 and I appreciate that hardocre feel even more now.
Just go back to playing mw that's my medicine.
Ok, but they need to fix the excessive noobtubing and the hit-box lag and add some form of camping repellent and fix the host issues..and fix the...actually come to think of it the whole game needs work... I still play it tbh, Im one lvl from prestigue.
meh, MW2 is old. Time to move on
^^this is the problem nowadays, a game that is less than a year and a half old is considered as old. If its so old why is sold still at high price? not a budget title.
I guess it's nice that they are still working on this but honestly what's the point? This game can't be fixed and the new one will be out in November, so why bother?
hacks to be fixed now balance the game!!!!
i cant see it fixing all the hacks they still havent patched some of the glitches when people found them day one like going in rocks and walls etc i wouldnt be surprised if activision said you have to start paying for patches lol
They WANT to give a positive impression of themselves, much like Treyarch did pre-black ops launch... and to this day I'm STILL seeing people have problem with the game.
Balance ruins the game. If all guns are balanced and even, what is the need for more than 2 weapons per a class(sniper,LMG, etc...)?
not just the guns though, some of the perks are ridiculously exaggerated
Bah... What's the point? Hackers will just find a way to bypass the patch.. or whatever it is the patch puts into the game
lol they won't be able to do shit.
They need to patch much more than that!
its funny how they said its Sony's fault because of how the system got hacked IW said they couldnt do anything about the hacks now they have a patch ready lol they really do need to wake up and smell the coffee
I tried playing MW2 a few days ago and it is literally unplayable. I played for maybe 30 min in a few different games and i witnessed some crazy shit. - jumping 1000ft in the air -unlimited ammo -unlimited clip ammo ( no reloading) -Invincible enemies -100mph sprinting -shotguns with range of over 30 ft...oh wait it was always like that.
Funny, I play MW2 a lot and I have no ever seen any of that. Shotguns initially, but that was fixed a long time ago. I play on LIVE, what version did you see that on?
yea i play the neglected ps3 version haha, thats probly why.
You have to wonder, after the mass exodus of quality developers at Infinity Ward when Zampella and West were let go, if anyone in that studio knows wtf they're doing anymore. I think the Call of Duty and Modern Warfare franchises are in a very limited window now, and if they can't maintain quality in-house, they could have another Guitar Hero on their hands. Plus, it's not like DICE isn't a formidable competitor in the genre (some would say DICE has always been superior in fact).
At least they are doing something with the game
They should sneak in the balancing patch as well. The game still sells at a ridiculous price NEW. So they obviously are still trying to reap the benefits from that game. it would only make sense to keep it up to date!!! Whatever, Black Ops pretty much is not in my cycle of games to play anymore. COD needs servers and a new game engine, among other things. If they don't employ this for the next game, they do not get my money. I'm amazed at the pure greed of Activision. I'm pretty sure they make enough money off each iteration of COD to employ the best technology available for the next game. There are countless other titles that are much better which have sold much less, probably have equally sized development teams and continued or are continuing to tweak their game and the content they realease is either free or much more cost effective than COD's crap.
