No Matchmaking in Modern Warfare 2's Special Ops

When Co-optimus found out that Halo 3: ODST's Firefight mode didn't support matchmaking, we were quite bummed to say the least. If you haven't fired up Modern Warfare 2's Spec-Ops cooperative mode yet on the 360 or PS3, we've got a bit of a downer for you - there's no match making.

Bungie had an excuse for not including it, stating it was an engine limitation, an excuse we don't accept by the way. Infinity Ward on the other hand hasn't stated why there's no match making in this mode.

wow. Fail on IW's part.
I hated Bungie for not including it.. and now the hate moves on to IW.
atleast bungie had an somewhat legit excuse.. i wonder wats IW's excuse? -.-

I appreciate co-op alot more in games then competitive (even though I will play competitive alot more). I loved Gear's Horde and what not because of the random people you get in with. Same for Uncharted's co-op variations (played the beta n demo.. need 2 pick up full game)

Thats disappointing... people called bungie out on this before.. now if no-one calls out of IW (looks at the perfect scores).. that would be extremely ghey

it is only 2 players, if you can't find one person to play with you, you really need to work on your social skills.

What if someone on your list is playing another game or just doesn't feel like playing Spec-Ops? Wouldn't it be convenient to automatically find someone who is also trying to play a co-op game? You know, instead of constantly bugging people to play with you at any given time.

The spec ops missions take about 6 minutes at the most, they can be done anytime. Unless you only have 5 friends total, you can find someone to play with you.

Please stop trying to find reasons to bash this game, it is fun, let it be.

Who's bashing it? I'm enjoying the mp (but no hardcore hq?), sp had some great moments, but i've yet to touch spec-ops. maybe i don't understand, but it seems like matchmaking would be a reasonable feature to include for all their online modes...guess not then
