Robert Bowling, aka fourzerotwo, confirms that the killstreak system has been completely revamped.
This could be interesting but they obviously aren't going to do away with it completely..... I don't think anyway.
Hey, it's the guy who made DICE not communicate with their fans. Disconnect your internet, you troll.
@Tompkins What on earth r u talking about? :/
http://n4g.com/news/790730/... Hitman made that happen.
Why, was it Hitman who encouraged DICE to do so with one of his tweets on his Twitter Account? I don't follow.
He basically made a story saying DICE claimed that 360 is a better version than PS3 for Battlefield 3, but he didn't say that at all. So DICE saw the story and had enough and called him a troll journalist and stopped tweeting about the game at all.
I know the story but right now, you're the troll...
true story , point the finger at him everyone
weed does wonders
MW3 much like COD 4, MW2, BlOps, will still suffer from the same crippling and debilitating condition know as lag. Unless this changes with MW3 it is pointless to even consider buying this game.
I don't condone what Hitman did in anyway, but Dice should be a bit more professional and just don't feed bad journalists/trolls... Seriously, anyone can call itself a journalist on "the internets"... Even before the internet existed, how many times haven't people been took out of context on TV, newspapers and books? Are developers stop making review copies available because of the unprofessional journalists out there? Will they stop giving interviews because of it? If they choose to do so, they have no one to blame but themselves for not being professional enough to evaluate the media they are being exposed on, that's marketing 101. I know the Dice guy was trying to answer to everyone's doubts, but if the questions is a flamebait, don't matter where it come from, just ignore it and move on. Halting on every contacts probably just made guys like Hitman even more happy.
Biggest thing they need to do is upgrade their engine in my opinion. Their games run in at a Native Resolution 600p dammit not even Hd
I think you'll have to wait until the next generation to have 60 FPS and 720/1080p in a COD game.
@ Criminal, I would prefer playing in at least 720p than 60fps. Most games i play are 30fps so it not a big deal for me. Heck even something like 45Fps would do it for me
I see what you're getting at but playing at 60 FPS makes a big difference twitchy shooters.
Going from a 60FPS game down to 30FPS is horrible. I'm surprised people would prefer some more pixels over twice the frame rate. Not that it matters, PC for me. No compromise.
dude people don't know shit when they say the prefer 30 fps to 60 fps.
@ Fishy Fingers That's because a lot of people especially on forums just regurgitate what they see others post. Half of them probably didn't even know what CoD's resolution was or even cared until they saw some posts. @stolen Soul 30fps? Really? What online shooter do you play with that low of a framrate?
There's a huge difference between 30 fps and 60 fps. The game runs smoother and scenes where the performance drops are less noticeable. At least thats how it is on the PC. I would imagine the same would apply to CoD on the console.
no more kill streaks plz =) Edit: i like only gettin kills from my gun, knife, grenade, rpg, claymore etc. it makes it feel more rewarding than gettin most of my kills from a kill streak
In my opinion, Killstreaks are what makes Call of Duty standout, but maybe a special playlist with out killstreaks would be a better idea. :)
COD is too noob friendly, the COD players would get raped in CSS or Unreal/Quake.
lol agree. I've played both the games you mentioned and i see why you would say that.
I play both and repeatedly come out on top, u mad?!
You might be right, but who gives a shit?
PC gamers rarely play those games anymore so it's totally meaningless. Actually I can't recall a PC shooter that requires mad skills now a days.
I agree. Used to be an Unreal vet back in the day before I moved to consoles - Dual Enforcer extraordinaire! Lol. God, they should make a (good) Unreal game for PS3... would make Halo look like Ha-who? :)
I agree, but this could also means that camping (which frankly is encouraged by killstreaks) could now be done on a whole new level.
I like livestreaks better; when you get awarded for surviving confrontations.
I say kill the killstreaks. Does a RPG pop out of my ass if I shoot a terrorist tomorrow? I think its stupid.
Really cannot wait to see what they upgrade in this game. So far all the other cods were just clones of Cod4 with no major update. Hopefully this one does something different and maybe it'll make it in my library.
I love COD4 and still play it sometimes. After skipping COD5, I bought and platinumed MW2, but traded it as I felt COD4 was better online (personal preference only, most of my friends said the opposite). I bought Black Ops, but got bored of the online and offline rather quickly. I traded it in probably too hastily, I think I was just jaded of shooters for a while. I'll probably pick up MW3 a month or two after release, but it's not the most anticipated game on my radar. I just want it to feel improved, with a proper upgrade.
It's now 3 kills streak for nuke
Hmm I know They're gonna have Team Killstreaks but curious to what else they're gonna bring to the table.
How do you know they are going to have Team Killstreaks? Plus by team killstreaks do u mean UAV Counters and stuff like that?
i think they mentioned that has to do with completing objectives.. like grabbing 4 flags in a game of domination, etc.. but i wonder if they'll have a losing streak as well.. cause you know it has to be "fair"
Oh lord please no!!, no losing streak.. Please!! it was bad enough in MW2 rewarding people who die all the time. Thats like running in the olypics and getting a gold for coming first, then watching the judges walk over to the guy who came last and handing him a gold as well.
@DarkWitness LOL... Wut?
TeamKillstreaks was heavily rumoredI'm sure it has to be true, but what else are they gonna do.
itd be cool if they made them like crysis with dog tags. that would eliminate camping. also, an option to get a killstreak+ wouold be nice. you could gamble and take a smaller killstreak, or let the kills pile up and upgrade it. either way killstreaks are here to stay. i just hope they make them better and balanced.
IMO the way Crysis 2 did it is THE only way to do killstreaks.
I cant disagree. they took the COD4 model and perfected it. crysis multiplayer is the most balanced offering on any console. the perks balance each otehr nicely and you really have to chooise between alot of good perks.
the only thing i really didnt like is that in black ops your kill streak kills wouldnt add on to your killstreaks if you havnt played black ops this might sound confusing but anyone that played know exactly what im talking about
That's a good thing....
Actually it made Black Ops a slower game.
You mean kills achieved from your used killstreak count towards your next killstreak right? Because there is no way in hell they should. Or you might as well just guve everyone a chopper gunner or dogs for nothing. Basically with the right killstreaks picked you'd only have to get 3 kills and your killstreaks would do the rest.
That's actually what I hated about Mw2 and all the other Cods. You don't deserve the kills that your killstreak gets it shows you have no skills. Example of Mw2, Get Harrier, Camp, Harrier kills 4 guys, You pull chopper gunner out, Nuke.? You actually think that makes the game fun? More like cheap and noobish.
I agree. That was an oversight on IW's part and I can't believe they didnt fix it. With the hardline perk you could effectively get a nuke after 6 kills which defeats the whole purpose of a 24 killstreak.
I don't play it but my lil bro does and i know what you mean and to me it seems better like that cuz you gotta earn you're kills instead of camping instead of getting a harrier call it in racks up kills for a chopper gunner etc etc etc.
cod black ops is boring repetitive and lame. did i mention repetitive. IW go back to cod 4 gameplay please.
I heard somewhere,, they are.
yeah i might buy it then. but you will still have to pay 1200 msp for each pack. homefront has its 1st map pack going for 240 msp. got a kd ratio of 2.71 on that game.
lol... they havent left cod4 gameplay.
You know IW didn't make Black Ops, right? They might have contributed ideas, but Blops was Treyarch's baby.
yes i knoe that but treyarchs baby definantly turned out inbred
That change was made to reduce camping. I don't think it was a bad decision. In fact, I hope IW follows suit in MW3. Killstreaks should be worked for - none of this "I'll call my Harrier Strike and hide in a corner until I rack up enough kills for my Chopper Gunner"... lame.
Killstreaks work like Crysis 2
Or maybe Homefront. This would encourage players to perform as many actions as possible rather than just camp in corner.
Call of Duty would be weird if it didn't have that last-gen SD look it currently does. Imagine if Call of Duty looked actually mind-blowing.... Strange, eh? I don't think amazing graphics would work in that game. Disregarding the 60FPS, that's not what I'm talking about. I think the sheep lot who buy CoD no matter what wouldn't buy it if it didn't look like previous Call of Dutys... God, now I come to think of it, they've all looked similar since CoD4! xD Not trolling btw.
haha by writing "not trolling btw" doesn't negate the trolling.
I am surprised they haven't shown ANY multiplayer yet. This is very strange. Usually by E3 we get a lot of information. I wonder when they will start showing ANY multiplayer components.
Ah yes, killstreaks...where bombs and helicopters do your dirty work.
I hope the new idea completely ruins the game.
<----------- COD Player and I'm consistent on every single game that I play. From a good Win ratio to a good KDR.... So I'm not following what they mean by COD players can't be good at any other games lmao.
Its not COD players in general, its the players that camp in corners then get a kill streak and let it do all the work. If newbs like that played real competitive shooters they would get destroyed. Now if you good in other shooters and resort to the killstreak rape you are scum. Like athletes players that were good but still took steroids.
Oh I'm a run and gunner. I go out defend do objectives and also flank. Camping is completely useless unless you're camping to actually defend that objective not to boost your stupid KDR that barely anybody pays attention to. Okay now I see what people mean now.
Hmm this could be interesting. Details are scarce on the multiplayer side of things but how much more different can it be?
Hope it will still be unstackable, that was one of the things I loved about BO.
How is this even a story? These articles based on tweets need to go.
i heard there will be a rc xd plane!
