A group of Call of Duty glitchers has been called back to Infinity Ward to help the studio test and shore up the game's multiplayer, according to the gang's leader.
*"This time, Infinity Ward is keeping us there an entire week so we can find more bugs and glitches than ever before!" Looks like someone is scared of BF3 if they don't sort out their glitches. @clizz care to read the top portion of my comment and you'll understand.
WOW, so actually trying to improve their product is being scared of the competition? Where can I get a can of that LogicBeGone?
"WOW, so actually trying to improve their product is being scared of the competition?" Yes. The last few Call of Duty games have been infamous for being plagued with game-breaking bugs.
Quality assurance =/= fear of competition. P.S. I guarantee you that Activision is not afraid of Battlefield 3.
This is just marketing to address concern about past neglect. I doubt MW3 will be any different.
The fact that they are doing this after MW2 and BO gives me the feeling that they never intended to do any QA for those games unless they were put on the spot by a competitor. I feel that if it was not for BF3 it would have been another rushed product with no QA.
*"This time, Infinity Ward is keeping us there an entire week so we can find more bugs and glitches than ever before!" This is BS we all know IW is not working on the MP this time raven software is
People complain when they "don't put effort" into COD games and call them annual shoverlware with new skins. Then when they spend more time to take care of the things these same people are complaining about, they say they are scared of the competition. Hilarious. What a bunch of tools. As for COD, as much as we don't want to admit it...COD has NO competition. MW3 will sell 8-10 million copies each on PS3/360. BF3 will be lucky to sell 4 million or better combined. COD is a household name, its like Mario or Halo...it just sells.
thats what happens when you use the same engine and 90% of the same game since cod4. until they actually get original again, there will always be mass glitching.
LOL! They must be having a field day! :D
Anyone who think activision is scared of EA and BF3 is just plain silly. Sure they know they will have a tougher time earning the gamer dollar but they have such a huge install base on consoles the game will easily outsell BF3. Let me put it this way, MW2 Sales (ps3 + 360) - 21 million Black Ops (ps3 + 360) - 22 million Bad Company 1 + 2 total sales on ps3 AND xbox is < 7 million. Might i add MW2 and Blackops are still the most popular online games on both PSN and XBL. And NO im not saying one game is better then other. Just saying no one is scared of anyone.
I certainly wouldn't say they're scared, but quality control is certainly an issue and ignoring the problem will eventually lead to their down fall. It happened with Mortal Kombat, it happened with Nintendo, and compared to the PS2 it could be the beginning of it happening with the PS3. It was happening to Madden vs the 2k series til EA bought out the exclusivity. If a product becomes riddled with bugs or just plain stale, it will eventually fail, always has, always will.
WOW they are going all out for MW3. they even brought in the pros to make sure that MW3 has the SAME AMOUNT of glitches as MW2. I wonder who they will bring in for the Lag test? Maybe the first house that is closest to the studio. "if it can lag next door then it can lag 300 miles away" save your self the trouble and just ask gamers to pencil in a 3 on their MW2 boxes and pretend the game is new.
I'm not sure you'd be able to see a pencil mark. Maybe a black Sharpie?
"save your self the trouble and just ask gamers to pencil in a 3 on their MW2 boxes and pretend the game is new." lol... "if it can lag next door then it can lag 300 miles away" Lol!
Or a green sharpie to keep up with the theme
LMFAO hahaha So true. I mean yeah, it's good they're trying to fix the glitches now, but to be honest, glitches are still probably gonna be there either way. And so will the completely unbalanced multiplayer component from MW2.
Why even mention Battlefield, troll? Trying to start a flame war? Grow up
It's relevant. Activision is trying harder now that there is competition that will be going head to head with them.
@f789790 no BBF3 had nothiong to do with this article.. they arnt testing game cause there scared otehrwise why werent they scared for BBF2? are you implying thats a bad game.. it was but w/e...
@Heartnet Why do you keep saying "BBF"?
@MidnytRain Big Booby Farts
I bet u these guys are certified glitchers. They will leave a hole or 2 for future lulz. Just playin but this is a start towards improvement.
Of course they wont tell em everything. Pretty much giving these guys a headstart on the their glitch booster for when the game goes live.
whats funny too, is that cod Waw and Mw2 are bug filled like theres no effing tomorrow and they had 2 or 3 days so now with an additional 4 extra days lets see if these "pro glitchers" can help them.
Once again battlefield HAS to be mentioned in the first comment of a CoD article. I thought the BF3 fanbase was supposed to be mature? You BF3 fanboys have become more childish than the CoD kiddies.
More like EA is scared of MW3...
Still worse than an open beta...
Yeah, I don't understand why they don't have a 2-3 week open beta. It helps polish and makes amazing from day one.
"Still worse than an open beta..." -damn right I payed for Black Ops (360-all maps paks/PS3/PC) And I cant play MW3 beta And those fucking retarded hackers and glitchers can play before, bravo. Black Ops is my last fucking cod
Though i'm really looking forward to Battlefield 3, i may just pick this one up for it's Spec ops and Story :) I just hope this game has some sort of demo. Black ops had a demo like 4 months after the game was released. LAME! I would have not bought the game if i known how terrible it was.
that was their plan my friend
That's why they don't have a beta, because having one means it delays the games release, because there will most certainly be a lot of bugs. They advertise is as the dogs bollocks and people throw their money at them, unaware of the sneaky tactics they use. Black ops is my biggest regret this year. I should have bought two or three bottles of 30 yr Glenfiddich and had a party..... Fuck you treyarch, fuck you.......
Man they're really herpin the derp on this one.
This **** was funny cause um, wtf does herping the derp mean? nevermind. nice. got it.
If anyone can find them, I guess they can. CoD4 and MW2 were very glitchy.
Thing is i remember reading about them doing this exact same thing for mw2... sure looked like it helped.
I gotta be completely honest here... Some of them were really really obvious and could be done simply by using the game's climbing mechanic. They try their best to get rid of them, but they always creep in somewhere because someone has done a half-assed testing job.
Great let them play it first, Great way to reward the cheaters
lol i bet they bought them food and everything
"lol i bet they bought them food and everything" off the dollar menu i bet and made them all stay in one hotel room at the Motel 6. flew them out on a plane and sent them home by Bus.
Cheaters never win is bullcrap and a lie.....I learned that right after realizing Santa Clause was fake!
He is totally real! :P
^ YOU JUST GOTTA BELIEVE!!!
lol yeah, good thing the Easter bunny is real
whoa whoa whoa...spoiler alert
lol. this is why i love N4G! XD
They are watching them play the whole time right? If not what if they find some glitches and think it will be useful and not tell them about them so when the game releases they use them first thing online.
Because they are either getting paid or happy to play the game before anyone else.
Good move. MW2 was full of glitches -___-. Just hope they are watching them play every moment. So there won't be any secrets.
I hate people that stop me getting to my roofs :(
The lag was more awful than the glitches...
*The lag WAS more awful than the glitches.. Hate to break it to you but it still is and black ops has the worst lag ive ever seen on a cod game :D.
It's stealth lag, it can seem like your playing the smoothest game, when in reality everything you see is like half a second out of sync. This is a BIG problem for an online game, the netcode is appalling. MW2 did not have it as bad a Blckops, but it was still there. Anyone who regularly plays black ops should be aware of this, It surprises me that there are so many COD fans around places defending a broken game.
so instead of the game broken within 6 hours this year it will be broken in 6 minutes?
Like they give a finger, whatever is left of IW stopped caring after 2nd map pack for mw2. They should be working on new engine for this title but nooo Bobby K needs more ca$h fuck the fans lets slap em with same title we did last year but in different clothes
And yet I see godmode on MW2
open beta would've been better
They should be doing what Gears of war 3 is doing and storing there variables in a database so it becomes some what unmodified.
for a second there i was thinking you were going to say, "they should be doing what gears of war 3 is doing leaking their game so everyone can play/test it"
Why would they leak a build that's half a year done? Never the less the ending. It was Microsoft's failure not Epics, Microsoft had the build unprotected on some branching site that didn't require any administrator access to obtain. Poor Epic, wasting 3 years of there time.
so ima guess to public beta to test the severs when it hits the masses? they better have a G36E or im gonna go ape shit. lol that gun is beast!
Cool but... what if they find glitches and decide not to tell IW? Then when the game comes out, exploits them and then the whole public knows.
This is cool and all, but they still need to do a beta to find all the glitches in the game.
This pretty much confirms that there won't be an open beta, if there was any doubt. Activision has no need for letting their fans give any feedback; every game they make is perfect, so they don't need a beta.
You forgot to /s
Whoops. Thought any praise Activision got would automatically be understood as sarcasm.
I imagine all the testers have giant troll faces on and are going to report that there was absolutely no glitches found what so ever...lol
