Players of Call Of Duty have complained that there are some seriously bad spawns in the game, especially in the map Dome where YouTuber iFeN0M has managed to get 76 kills in one whole minute.
Wow, that is all I have to say
It is not impressive at all, even the video creator says it. This along proves why COD 5 an up have terrible MP. Over 200 kills, around 4 MOABs. All in 1 match...
not one match but one round of demo!
Jesus Christ....and yet the VGAs proclaimed this game shooter of the year. fffffuuuuu!
Just go BF3 bro, see you there
Cod5 didn't have "terrible" multiplayer. It was basically just cod4 with a ww2 skin. There was ONE unbalanced gun in world at war, but it wasn't game ruining. It's more like Modern Warfare 2 and up have had terrible multiplayer, but the worst you can say about world at war was that it was average/nothing special.
I think Battlefield 3 is 10 times better than Modern Warfare 3 !!
@Andreas-Sword 10x? seriously? That's being a little generous. I would rather play hello kitty island adventures than another crappy MW game -_-
@ rezzah, I didn't hear the narrator (who was the player) didn't say it was "impressive".. He stated a number of times that he "had to show the world this video because it should never happen" he also went on to say "the fact that this can happen proves how bad this game really is" and that MW3 maps (dome in particular) have "the shittiest spawns ever." If anything he seemed more like he was trying to prove a point about the broken state of MW3's multiplayer, rather than gloat about his killstreak.
thats a broken game if ever i saw one.
By looking at the radar, you can obviously tell everyone on the winning team is in on it. There set in a specific location to spawn trap the other team. I'm in no way defending the game. The spawn system on DOME is obviously broken to shit if this is happening. Just saying, this won't happen in any other map. No matter how broken the spawn system is, IT JUST WON'T HAPPEN WITH A DECENT TEAM. Again the other team must be total crap. And the winning team must be a full squad working as a team, I mean, if you can call it working as a team. And anyone with half a brain wouldn't and shouldn't keep spawning if there in this situation. They should have just left instead of giving this guy free kills. Take a look back at Bad Company 2. Countless times you would get people spawn trapped. It wouldn't be hard either. And its impossible to get out of it especially when you have their damn chopper circle strafing your spawn. Even harder when the steal your chopper as well, with tanks in your base. As soon as you spawn, you would be dead. I know to just not even bother continue playing if that's going on. Especially if I just joined the game. And countless times I would be on the team doing the spawn trapping. Its basically Killing Paradise. As soon as they spawn, blast them. Easy stuff. I've done it several times on BF3. Its of course harder but its still possible on certain maps. This can happen with any game. You have a random crappy team going up against another squad that has a full squad of people coordinating their moves, you can almost know from the start who's going to win. Again, I'm in no way defending CoD. Just stating some facts.
There is none of this on BF3. So no you're not stating facts. Also, you were bad if you couldn't get out of a spawntrap in BC2 (Unless an Atacama Spawntrap) and even worse that you allowed yourself to get spawn trap. What happened in that video has never happened to anyone in BF3 or BC2.
Really? Never happened in BC2? You obviously never played it then. Anybody here who isnt blind can tell you Atacama Desert had this happen a lot. What was really annoying was those circle strafing choppers. It happened a lot. Don't deny it. I put enough hours to know and experience this on several other maps. I've never had this happen to me in BF3 but I've been on the side doing the spawn trapping. Hasn't happened much but I've been in games that has had this happen several times. Again, I stated not as much but it happens on occasions. Like you said, this wouldn't happen unless the team was bad so they deserved it. Well I guess you can say that here on this situation. They probably deserved it for being horrible players.
Dunno why everyone's disagreeing with him, BC2 did have a lot of spawn camping and spawn-trapping. I never had an issue with ground troops, just spawn and blow their brains out. But the chopper whores who circle-strafe into oblivion is what made it all broken. I dunno why there were no mobile AA-units in the game, nor why there was no infantry AA weapons like a stinger, only stationary weapons. The choppers could easily tell when you were in a stationary AA weapon and blow it (and you) to hell without much of an issue. Getting a kill with normal rockets was possible, but pretty rare as it was mostly luck-based, especially with the heli's constantly lagging through the air. Oh well, just another example of how BF2 > BC2 and pretty much every other BF ever lol.
Has never happened to me on BF3 but I've spawn trapped people before in BC2
@ALL_STAR_28 "What happened in that video has never happened to anyone in BF3 or BC2." True maybe in the sense that the quick spawn and death might not happen in BF3 (as it takes awhile to spawn in BF3.) But BF3 does have some maps that need work. Oman on CQ Assault has a map level that allows the attacking forces to spawn camp once they take over all the flags. And spawn camping by the fact that you can hang out directly in their spawn and just wait for the team to pop in and die at your hands. Not a single thing can be done once this level reaches that point. As that single location is then the only place they can spawn at that point. Still not the failure that COD brings to multiplayer spawn camping. But still a failure in the sense they need to fix it in many of their levels.
BC2 or Battlefield 3 doesn't have this kind of problem. There was spawn camping indeed, but people weren't spawned in a single location to be killed several times by simply standing in a single spot. 2-3 coordinated guys could sneak out of spawn camping in BC2.
I've spent a crap load of time on BF3 and i've never seen what your talking about. I don't know on BC2 but on BF3 i think ur lieing on and i say this because even if your team is pined it spawns way outside of the area. It would be next to imposable.
Dude...are you in denial? No other FPS Multiplayer game is as screwed up as COD...once people figure out the pattern (Which isn't very hard to do) you can't play a decent game at all. The only solution is to play a better FPS. Imo Battlefield 3 clearly trumps this game in every possible way (pc)
I think some here are confusing spawn trapping with base raping. Spawn trapping was very unlikely because of the size of the maps and the fact that you could spawn on your squamate.
Even in BC2 a smart player could work their way out of a spawn camp. Teamwork and smoke could usually get you out of a spawn trap. The real problem is the lone wolf mentality of most gamers. That why I like squads in BF. You can spawn on someone. And BF has multiple spawn spots in any given area.
Easily fixed if they give a 2 second invincibility. What game spawns you w/o invulnerability? Even Battlefield doesn't allow players into the deployment area. They spawn all players away from battle, but since MW3 is such a small area, it might seem harder. That shows how bad this game is and not to be compared to a massive battleground that BF3 has. This should kill the comparisons and show why MW3 is not equal to BF3
Thank God this guy made this video. THANK YOU. The game is embarrassing to the entire franchise and it's pretty much irrefutable when proof like this pops up.
I would quit this game if this stuff happens frequently, but I never run into too many bad spawns. It does happen time to time, but not enough where I'm ready to quit the game for good. They do need to fix this issue though. I like both BF3 and MW3, if you guys like the one or the other, don't bash on the opposition, just be glad we have both franchises, and have options to play different Shooters.
All of them on the winning team are in on it, and they have another guy in split screen acting as a fall guy to keep the game running. From his gamertag 'iNsAnity iZ b4k' (insanity is back), he more than likely has been banned before. Oh well at least all of them are going to get banned now for cheating/boosting.
they're not cheating or boosting though, simply exploiting what is clearly a fault in the map
Kinda like MW2 huh?... Same game, same issues.
Ah, another article shows how terrible a game Modern Warfare 3 is and I suddenly need to release a turd like hell. See you soon
For the ppl complaining about spawning learn your lesson stop buying bs and you won't have to complain. Instead of plying COD I'm putting massive hours in on UC3 and dnt have to worry bout tht on mp. Some ppl never learn activision and its partners don't give a #*ck about ur gaming exp at this point anymore.
I actually remember the spawning in UC3 was terrible in the beta haha, so I was a bit afraid to get online when I bought the game. Who would of thought....a beta fixed the issue and its not here in the final game. Perhaps Activision could call up Naughty Dog and ask them how a beta works.
Yeah the first beta was sweet and the second one was a nighmare that many questioned what drugs ND were on due to the abou face. However I was an avid visitor to the forums and once the posts about issues such as blind fire kills, sprint, spawning, etc... Started coming in ND was quick to listen to the fans and make things right. I can honestly say that the beta testing and advice from fans shaped the mp to be the great beast it is now. I've never experienced spawn killing in UC3. Its sad I was a big mw fan and now unless they change their tune and fix the bs issues and upgrade the monotonous gameplay it has become I won't buy another.
I'd rather not play either of those games terrible and unbalanced multiplayer modes. They both suck.
Hey everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I beg to differ I haven't been getting in any unbalanced games as of late everyone I get matched with for thr most part is level 75 or lower level legacy. You can't pull me away from this game and my girl who isn't even a gamer has become one since uc2 mp. Some games I do good some mediocre but in no way or form is uc3 mp terrible, if anything its one of the most fun mps I've ever played and I've beengaming since I was like 12 and I'm 33 now.
