Tsardom.net takes a look at the connectivity problems which stop Modern Warfare 3 being fun.
I'm having no connection problems on PS3. Sucks for you 360 owners.
Sucks for all who wasted their money no matter the platform.
I am not having any connection problems either.
i havnt had any problems im on 360 and its addicting as ever
It's not fun for me because I always go 35ish and 6 and can't ever find a single person who's even in my realm. That's why I stick to Battlefield.
I'll give you the main reason why it's no fun for you, because you die alot due to lack of skill :)
I almost wish that was the case because at least then it would have a chance of improving! Put me in a fair lobby where everyone has four bars and I'll do well. Always have in COD. As I said I played the game a lot at XP and after the first couple of matches adjusting I was consistently MVP with 20+ kills in our matches, often against organised clans. I may have the odd moment where I drop the ball or fail at aiming occasionally but that happens to everyone. I'll hold my hands up if outskilled and often watch in Theater Mode to learn from it. I don't mind being beaten on skill, but I can't stand losing simply due to connection issues. If you check out the COD forums you'll see many others having the same issue.
Actually while its nice for everyone to think they dominate the game based on skill alone, the article is absolutely correct. My connection is constantly 4-5 bars. In a match where all players are equal with like connections, I'm usually top 3 in kills and deaths are generally in single digits. In a match where my connection is 4-5 bars and the majority of connections are say 3 bars, even though my kill number is still good, it is substantially lower and my deaths are almost double every single time. There is no difference in my skill between one map to another, but it has everything to do with the latency compensation in the COD games. Don't believe me, check the kill cam when you die. If your connection is fast and you know your getting the jump on your opponent and pumping 5-6 rounds in him and he simply aims and downs you with one or two rounds, most likely the kill cam will show that he was actually firing on YOU and saw you before you saw him in the split second or two that makes the difference. This was the same in Black Ops and MW2 as well. And btw, I have a 360 and PS3 not a fanboy of either and I also play and love Battlefield 3,and my k/d from game to game is constantly good in BF3, and never have those issues with latency.
I don't care how "recycled cod is. It's definitely fun.
i finally played it yesterday (at a friends and when i say finally i was like oh fuck here we go, this shit lol) But i always have an open mind and try to view every new game with a fresh slate no matter what i think before release. and i have to say it was just awful and i mean i knew it was going to be the same and stuff so i wasn't expecting anything ground breaking and new of course, but it just felt so sluggish there was campers EVERYWHERE and i started to remember why i hated modern warfare 1 after i must admit a long long time playing it. its just full of children. i dont know if it felt sluggish and stuff because i play alot on PC now like battlefield at the moment and just got skyrim and eveything is very twitchy and accurate but it was just bad. and the worst thing i must say was the rediculous bullet detection. i mean the was times a pulled my gun out of the iron sight because i knew i shot them and there was no hit and i NEVER do that iv'e played games all my life i know when to put my guns down and shit but i have to say i so glad i wasn't a sheep this time round and got it because every one else did. now back to uncharted and skyrim thank god some deveolpers still care!!!
seriously the only people who dont like this game just suck at it, they have the support package for a reason and this game is actually VERY balanced, theres no excuse
The new game modes in MW3 like Kill confirmed are great fun. The multiplayer in Modern Warfare 3 is excellent in everyway and FINALLY it is balanced unlike the completely half assed unbalanced Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer. Thank the gaming gods that Sledgehammer games took out the cheap stuff like commando. In fact I give full credit to Sledgehammer games for bringing the once excellent COD multiplayer back to its former glory.
I haven't had too many connection issues in either the PS3 or 360 version thus far. Frankly, it's the spawns that need to be tended to.
Compared to all of the great games I've played this year(Alice The Madness Continues, Dark Souls, Gears 3, Batman AC, etc.)this game blows. Not only is it more of the same. It's just not fun. A friend can over to use my spare LCD and internet-being that he is without both(but he has the MW3 console...fail)I agreed and we set up screen by screen. I was busy working on gold and onyx medals in Gears 3 but I took the occasional break to watch MW3 as this was my first glance at a COD title since MW2. I will never understand what compels people to play this boring ass game. It looked no different than the first MW and full of campers as usual with any FPS. I hate camping and campers. I call games like this Friday Night Sissy Fights at it's best. lol Baaahh sheep....baaaaaaaaahhhh!!!
i have a problem with Mw3 , the multiplayer maps are sucks , all feels the same to me , all are boring , i would buy Mw1 maps if it's in the store , it's gonna be the first time i buy a map pack for cod...
