OXM UK: "Commando's history - what else should Infinity Ward cut from the package?"
Just get rid of killstreaks entirely. All they do is allow players who are already winning to feel like they're winning MORE at the expense of less skilled players' enjoyment.
They should just get rid of killing and make the game like real modern warfare--cyber attacks and hacking.
They should get rid of the following whiny bitch*s: 1)People who complain about "campers." 2)People who complain that the other team is cheating because their k/d ration is 1/18 3)People who constantly deride other groups (this includes but is not limited to: racists, gynophobes, and religious nutjobs) 4)Micspammers (people who have a mic on and play music et al) 5)People who use lag switches and mods in order to cheat their way to victory. Valve uses anticheat servers where these players are banned. Go ahead cheat, then get banned and don't be allowed to play your $60 game online: HA HA!
Or go back to the fixed ones like cod:4.
Isn't this COD 4.35?
That is the correct answer... CoD 4 was much more balanced because of it. The dumbest thing they ever did was put the nuke in MW2, it just made losers boost and ruined the game... not to mention other factors. But I still throw in CoD 4 every once in a while and have a good time.
If you take away the killstreaks entirely, which was something that made Call of Duty 4 so popular, what major difference does CoD have to other FPS? I think killstreaks are fine, if they are balanced. Take for example Chopper Gunner. The amount of kills you can get with this machine is insane. The bullets are what, 1500mm that has such power that hitting nearby objects of a player will cause it to splinter into thousands of small bits that tears you apart? We need to get rid of controllable killstreaks, targetable and call-ins are allright, but controlling a beast like Chopper Gunner is just not really working.
I agree for 2 reasons: 1) Killstreaks entice/encourage camping. Sad but true. The CoD Noob wants to sit in a corner where he can ramp up kills and call in air support. 2) Killstreaks should have some consequences. We can't have one person camp all the way to 7 killstreaks then reward them with even more options of killing...wtf? they don't deserve it. They did NOTHING.
Annoying trolls and idiotic teammates? Don't get me wrong, COD multiplayer can sometimes be fun, but it's filled with hackers, trolls, idiots, fanboys and noobs.
"We've had some good times with the Last Stand perk, which lets the user fight on for a brief period after going down, but we want it dead regardless. Weakened, crawling foes are (a) first rate kill-steal material and (b) horribly annoying when they sacrifice themselves and cheat you of match-winning points." Those are both selfish reasons to chuck Last Stand. I personally never had problems with it in MW2. Most people I saw didn't live through it anyway.
Not just CoD, but all shooters should get rid of 1hit melee attacks. So much BS wrapped in a single button click. But CoD is far worse at it than any other shooter. You don't even have to be at arms length to stab someone. I can't count how many times I've knifed someone that ran past me or how many times I've been knifed by a guy who's a good 5 feet away from me. guns>knives
I don't think the knives in BFBC2 are overpowered. The difference I think is that it's slower and not super fast like other games.
It's not that it's overpowered, but you shouldn't be able to instantly kill someone by stabbing them in the leg,hand,etc.
@inthelab If they made knifing more realistic, then it would be just a useless p.o.s. mechanic that no one would use and would have no reason to be in the game. One hit kill melee is fine, just as long as it isn't a lunged melee attack. One hit kill melee is one of those things that needs to be exaggerated/unrealistic, just like respawning. No one would have fun if they could never respawn, just like no one would have fun using a melee mechanic that would be completely pointless since you'd get shot to death before you could melee them a 2nd or 3rd time.
Shitty over priced map packs?
Call of Duty has been nominated, and won awards every time in that category. Shitty maps, overpriced and with all the money they keep making you'd think that they'll give gamers dedicated servers.
i like the simplified maps idea. the best maps in cod4 were the ones that were relatively symmetrical. maps in black ops don't satisfy as much as the infinity ward maps. get rid of camp spots too. i loved cod4 because it always kept you on your toes--very few places to hide w/out risk of being stabbed in the back ban these assholes w/ modded controllers... it's pissing me off right now... and other thigns
1 thing MW3 needs, DEDICATED servers
It needs to end
I knew before I clicked the article that this would be all whine. Every COD game I've played online (mw, mw2 and bo) has had constant complaints about every little thing. Guns, attachments, perks, killstreaks, deathstreaks, sidearms, game modes, spawn points, map layouts, etc. are all subject to whining. A guy I played with last night was even complaining about and threatening to remove the people on his friend list who couldn't achieve a 30/4 or better k/d. No, I'm not on his friend list and yes, he would remove me if I was. What ever happened to the time when these games were played as they were and entirely for fun? Honestly, I'm not getting mw3 and it's entirely because of the online community.
exactly. I actually thought Black Ops had the most fun CoD online to date, but the overall CoD online community seem to be made of the world's lowest commen denominators, rampant cheaters, OR really young kids. And that's killed it for me too.. I've actually been thinking lately, that I wish there was a way for someones PSN/XBL account to have some kind of digital age verification--then developers could build in certain lobbies for each age demographic. you could just go to the Multiplayer menu and select your peer group and game type and be on with it, then the age on your PSN/XBL acount would verify that you are trying to enter an apropriate lobby.. Granted, I'm sure they wouldn't be willing to make private lobbies for homophobes, mysogonists, and neo-nazi's to keep them out of my ear during a match. oh well... I guess the mute feature will just have to cut it for now.
^^^^ this is the most intelligent idea that has ever come from the cod community. personally i didn't start gaming til i was 19 if you dont' count zelda are mario lol SOOOO i think everyone under 18 or the law is 17 now which ever should not be allowed to be online gaming. simple as that. it's illegal and dangerous for these kids and just flat out annoying for mature people. look at every picture of a black ops title. it's always something abotu a women getting fucked or a dick or tits or something! lol not that it isn't funny but it clearly shows our mentality.
Just make more like COD4 with better graphics, that is all. ANd bring back the AK47 in COD 4, the one in MW2 sucked balls.
killstreaks have evolved so much that they reward campers more.. there should also be objectivestreaks.. complete objectives in 1-2 min successions and you get a perk unlocked.. i think this would be way more helpful and stop very many people from camping.
Go back to what Cod use to be before everything went to hell.
you mean mw1? yeah cod4 was the best for it was the ONLY balanced cod since 2 lol
Black Ops fixed 5 of your 6 listed problems already.
