NowGamer: New Modern Warfare 3 trailer reveals major gameplay change.
Then it's not a kill streak... it's a "number of kills".
Kill Streaks Not Reset After Death... lol, who wrote that title? An 8 year old?
Noooo This guy:
i think they mean , say you get an 11 kill streak, get the hele reward, you die, the reward is still usable after death. infact after reading the article again, the title could be correct, depending on what support mode is. maybe its some all guns blazing air support cluster f*ck.
So.. same as usual, then...
I hope they didn't mean it in the way that if you kill 3 and die and kill 2 more when you re-spawn you get the kill streak with 5 kills lol
No, i think they mean it how gamesmaster described it above. Surely. If not, then its a ridiculous feature.
How dumb can you get, only SUPPORT kill streaks wont get reset when you die, support kill streaks arn't that good, it's stuff that you would have gotten from perks in the older games, so they have made this CoD harder, something the fans wanted.
Edit: Oh, never mind. Like you guys said below, it's like the other recent games in the franchise...
Did they ever? Serious question. I might be mistaken or something, but pretty sure you kept your killstreaks after respawning in most, if not all, the previous COD titles. Edit: Or are they implying your kill (streak) count continues after you've died? If so, that isnt a streak, and something I very much doubt they'd do.
actually, if they do it right it could be awesome. just hear me out, what if it cost like 30 kills to get a chopper instead of usual 5-7, but if you died the count wouldnt get messed up, that would eliminate 100% of the campers because they'd just want to rush to get kills and most of enemy team would be around objective. thats my take, but it'll prolly be just like the last 4 call of dutys, sigh.
Same as with every CoD game CoD4. Nice "news".
why are people disagreeing ?
It would be a good thing to stop campers.
Is it still a streak if it is interrupted? I mean, what else can you do in the game besides kill, or die?
This is exactly why I'm done with COD.
That trailer was a whole bunch of meh. Why am I not surprised that the animations look exactly the same, the graphics and everything all look the same. The only thing that was different were a few weapons and equipment and loadouts. Seriously? I wanted to like this game as I know all my buddies are going to get it and if I want to play with them I have to get this hunk of junk also. Man I wish people would see that Battlefield is clearly a lot more fun of a game. I have been desperately trying to get my friends to watch the gameplay videos for Battlefield. The ones that have listened to me and watched the videos are getting it. The others, well their stubborn and the only thing they ever play are CoD games. This "new" CoD game could have sufficed as a title update for MW2.
"Man I wish people would see that Battlefield is clearly a lot more fun of a game." Do you really need this to happen in order for you to enjoy the game? I'm looking forward to BF3 as much as the next person but I don't really care how many people like COD. It's really not affecting me in any way at all.
I don't care how many people like CoD either, what I was saying is that I want my friends to enjoy the badass experience that is going to be BF3 with me. Instead of doing the same ole same ole with MW3. I just want a fresh military shooter and BF3 fits the bill WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more than MW2, er I mean 3.
The less people switching from MW to BF the better.
I completely agree with this. Pretty much everyone of my friends is a CoD fanatic, and its the only game they ever play. So in order to play with friends, I'm pretty much required to buy this game. However, they may have to wait a while for me to play since I still gotta get Arkham City, BF3, and Uncharted 3. :P All of which I will have more fun with than CoD. Guaranteed.
get BF3, and tell them to come join you. if they don't like it let them play their crap game. I bought BLOP's for the same reason and then got rid of it. when I said I was selling it only 2 weeks after buying it they thought I was joking. I got rid of it and never looked back...
Funny thing is, I did exactly that. I sold BO about a month later and got like $45 so I bought another game. But they wanted me to play with them so much, they bought it for me again. I guess I just couldn't disagree with a free game. :P
I know the term "$60" map pack is a bit exaggerated, but honestly after seeing all those videos on gametrailers.com, it really does look exactly like MW2. Everything is the same, the sound effects, guns, graphics, gameplay. EVERYTHING. I mean I am usually one to back up the statement that there's only so much you can do to a FPS to make it different, but clearly Battlefield 3 has shown that you can make the same game but improve it in every way imaginable.
if they made a game called Call of Duty: Battlefield i bet they would buy it these kids and fanboys are obsessed with a name....well u play what u want and if they cont to play cod well delete some of them and replace them with battlefield players
I predict chaos in matches...
I can't see IW doing this but then again it wouldn't surprise me if they did. COD is already over the top. This would just push it to another level of unbalanced chaos.
I feel like alot of people will use this perk lol
I'm sure people would prefer the assault class instead = more kills ;)
Yet another way to make the game noob friendly.
Its not called a killstreak anymore, its been changed to a strike change, as it doesn't need to be a "streak" anymore. Also its only like this if you take the "Support package" which are bonus for the whole team. Assault and Specialist packages I think mean the chain resets on death still.
cmon, that looks exactly like MW2 in different maps. i was expecting at least some improvements in the animation department at least. I swear all they did was copy the engine over, and added new toys to play with such as perks, and guns. i guess when its not broken dont fix it. (people will buy).
An COD becomes more of a mainstream casual garbage by this. I urge everyone not to buy this game to show Activision that they MUST evolve if they want to make money. If you say that, oh well a few sales don't matter. Well it does.
Who gives a shit? The only thing more nauseating than CoD's twitchy camera controls is the fact that people still think it's a good game.
Sameeee old crap... aimed for casuals of course!
I believe what this means is that the [support] killstreaks won't be reset after dying... If you all recall the leaks, there are 3 tiers of killstreaks.
Also, the [support] killstreaks aren't like chopper gunner and things like that, so it's not like MW2 with massive killstreak whoring. At least I don't think so. Never know with IW...
I think you're right. Sounds like they are actually trying to keep killstreak whoring under control. The support killstreaks are pretty light action. The opposite would be a disaster.
I don't see this being the worst of features because if your kill streaks don't reset after death, then you can only use three for the entire match. It sounds like a replacement for the death streaks.
It's probably a good thing. They really like the over-the-top killstreaks, but the problem they had was that nobody could take the damn things down. This way, a support package guy can easily take out a ridiculous killstreak because he doesn't need to stay alive to earn it. This goes both ways, of course, but at least offensive and defensive rewards will always go toe-to-toe.
how the Fu*k you call it a "Streak" when dose not reset when you die
so thats how ive seen like 3 or 4 clips of gameplay with someone getting a jugganaut suit...and i thought it was going to be like getting the nuke in mw2...
Calm down people...it's only for the Support strike package....if you have the assault package (Predator, AC130, etc.) it goes back to zero after death.
I think BF3 might have a chance at getting more sales... depending on how they market it.
just wait till 21/9 for Bf3 beta, cod killstreakers retard kids will cry
