It has been confirmed that you can NOT Party Chat in all Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer Playlists. You may still Party Chat in these Playlists however.
may some explain to me why you can not party chat in all other ones? IW make me mad hulk smash!!!
I think the reason Infinity Ward is doing this is to prevent cheating.
Because coordination makes them feel insecure. Cheating my as$, if they really give a crap they'd fix their two year old glitches.
3 playlists you can, and 11 you can't... That is dumb as hell. And to 1.1, if it was for cheating, why can you party chat in Mercenary Team Deathmatch and not Team Deathmatch or Hardcore Team Deathmatch?
Because you can't join friends in Mercenary. ... This is demented. Party chat exists as an insta mute against all the retards who normal people have no interest in hearing. This is just another heap of bullsh*t on a long list from IW/Activision. And cheating, really? Who cares? Make an MLG playlist and keep this restriction there.
@ rdgneoz3 because you join mercenary team deathmatch as a party so therefore the chances of you playing mercenary team deathmatch with friends is slim to none. edit: PrimordialSoupBase, you beat me to it...
I can see why IW decided to do it but if the people who really use it to cheat can just use the good old telephone/cellphone or team speak on PC. Now when talking to my friends I have to listen to other peoples bs instead of just having a conversation with my friends. They just turned XBL into PSN.
"Now when talking to my friends I have to listen to other peoples bs instead of just having a conversation with my friends. They just turned XBL into PSN." muting the other ppl on ur team takes less time to do than setting up a party chat lol there is nothing bad about this at all lol sure ppl could still find other ways to cheat such as teamspeak, but it's a lot more effort than it being readily available for all 360 users. come to think of it s&d musta sucked for cod4 on the 360! surely with every1 in party chat every1 would be telling each other where ppl were when they were dead!
Why no party chat on team death match I understand on HC headquarters or S&D but now my friends and I can't talk Spanish without some idiot kids saying to use racist stuff (some ignorant people call us speak, mexican and other stuff like that or just start yelling random stuff) We are from Puerto Rico and we used it to talk among ourselves. Now one of the best services of Live is gonna go down the drain.
its pretty dumb that the only game modes that allow party chat are the game modes that dont allow you to play with a party. iw doesnt seem to be using thier heads
if i want to chat with my friends who are in a different game? Can i chat with them?
Firstly, it's called 'ghosting', it's been done in PC games for years in public servers. Secondly, why didn't they just make it so you couldn't see the other team when you're dead ffs? o_O
No chat in team death match? Having it in TDM is retarded. I'm sorry but who's bright idea was that? Maybe I have friends who play on different games? Multiplayer gets boring when you've only got some squeaky kid and an MLG wannabe to talk to. In fact I don't even want to get into what it's like being in a game with those types of people. I'm not buying this anymore. Go to hell Infinity Ward.
This game was not on my immediate to get lists. But I will gladly wait for the universal game type party chat function that will be patched later. It is inevitable. Point is. I don't want to talk to anyone but my friends in all game types.
can someone give me further explanation because I don't really understand
I'm guessing that if the game detects you're in Party Chat when you enter one of the 11 playlists... 1. You'll be forced into Game Chat 2. You'll be forcibly disconnected from the Party 3. You'll be forbidden to enter that playlist until you leave the party.
This stops nothing, all you do is set up a road block. People still use Skype and anything outside of XBL. All IW is doing is punishing people for really no reason and only provides a neat distraction until enough people get fed up and a patch is later released to undo all the harm.
lol my friends are gonna be so pissed
You can chat in all of those playlists. 360 has the inferior version it seems Poor xbots. =(
Wait what? We already have cross-game chat. You don't. 1 game doesn't let us play it in multiplayer to stop cheaters. Plus you aren't getting cross-game until end of 2010 or something, we'll all be playing something else =)
i got to agree with the buddy above me^^^ we do have cross game chat.... you dont only one game in a way disables this .... PS3 games cant even have this feature since they cant cross game chat. and what makes you think this will not apply to the PS3... oh yeah cause no one even uses a dam mic in the ps3 since it does not come with one when you purchase it. seriously your fanboy blocks the way you think, at least a head of time
According to a Naughty Dog dev, Cross Game Chat will be coming in the next firmware update so...
hey buddy ps3 does not have cross game chat.yet cant wait for it to come!!!
if they block it for xbox they will do the same for ps3 when/if cross-game chat comes. what a moron.
hows the PS3 better? you don't have it at all. if you will it would most likely be the same.
I actually love this, cause I'm tired of people telling my position in hardcore search & destroy... great move IW
I can see the reason for this in search and destroy where you have 1 life, but there is no reason to have it in the rest. Now you're just going to have 3 or 4 groups of people in Team Deathmatch trying to have a conversation and they all just end up yelling at the other to shut up.
LOL i was good with this decision, but poor implementation IMO. the MTDM FFA and 3rdperson playlist are the only ones with party chat, that a no doubter since they are technically all FFA games. Now i do wish for it in TDM and Groundwar ... Maybe in HCTDM, but anything that takes up respawn may need to have the chat blocked. all i know groundwar going to suck hearing 18 people at the same time, or 9 people in the same team
I can completely understand implementing this in play lists that do not have any respawn, but why, for the love of god, can i not play team deathmatch while in party chat? Ridiculous that if I'm chatting with friends who aren't even playing the same game I'm restricted to a measly 3 playlists.
I'd much rather just have Hardcore = no party chat. I don't cheat with party chat, I talk with friends, and it really is going to be a drag to have to stop that considering my favorite playlist is Headquarters.
Balls. This sucks.
I never blog really...I just read what everyone else write..... But this one took the Fn' cake man.... I just love how people want to fix something that's not broken... F.N.Gs man....IW... Stop acting like ur rookies at this gaming crap.
the only modes i can understand are the ones where u die and stay dead ( search and destroy etc) doing this is pointless for game modes like team deathmatch cos u can always talk anyway! lol bit stupid if u ask me lol. Edit: actually im thinking i understand now. The only reason they would stop it in team deathmatch type of matches is to make everyone part of a team. Cos when everyone is in their own private chat sh!t they never communicate properly like a team. Thats the reason IW dont like multiplayer achievements, cos they stop people playing as a team. seems logical to me. what do u guys think?
You hit the nail on the head. People have stopped communcating with other players cuz either they are in cross game chat or having pvt chat so even in TDM it is like you're playing on your own.
What party chat did (at least to my group of friends) is stop the harasment. Party chat was a God-send. I could just play with my friends and not worry about being insulted and called all types of names. And forget about the people with accents (like me), being called all types of names and insults flying back and forth. Now even when I am with my brothers that is going to happen to all of us if we dare speak. It looks like the IW have not played a single day on XBoxlive outside of their little network. Dumb Dumb Dumb Dumb is all I can think of. Teamwork you say .. I have been playing shooters for a long time, and outside of clan there is never teamwork .. only insults and crap topped with more crap. This is something that will cause me to not enjoy the game as much.
I suppose it's like playing on your own, but thats what friends are for. When I play I like to talk to friends, not some jerk I just met in game. Granted not all people blow balls, but it only takes one to ruin it.
This is ridiculous, but since I haven't tried it for myself, I can't judge yet. I'm pretty pissed about not being able to chat with friends who aren't playing MW2 or in my game, but maybe it will promote teamwork after all. However, with the typical nature of COD players, this probably won't be the case.
So your telling me that I cant use party chat with my friends if Im in certain playlist? What if my friends aren't even playing the same game? If this is true best believe Im gonna be using my uncle who is a lawyer so I can sue Microsoft and not have to pay the live fee anymore. Its so funny, psn is getting cross game chat, while xbox live which you have to pay for is taking away features. There is no way Im gonna pay for live anymore if this is true.
Damn it it's those cheaters fault...
I understand the SnD being diabled. But all other make no sense. cheating could be accomplished in the regular Chat. Party chat does not make it any easier. The only difference is that you may have someone listening to your conversation. I dont know what IW is doing is like they want to piss off their fanbase, just too see how much they could get away with and still be the best selling game ever.
I hope I grow to like this implementation, because 99% of the time I play its with Party chat.
this has to be WRONG! no chat in team death match. no way, there is no way they did this. i need party just just to tell my team to back out when we encounter a very bad overseas connection. im not even going to sit here and say infinity ward is stupid blah blah blah because i know this page just has to be an error
