i have started playing mw3 again after being a bit deflated by BO2 lack luster performance i've even noticed FPS Russia who i'm friends with on live has started switching back and was curious to see if others were doing the same and if so why.
i generally perfer the maps and the weapons of mw3 as they all feel a bit generic and staged in BO2
Well how many poeple are online when you get on? Just do a a few comparisions, I used to do this all the time with BO and MW2.
I'd be surprised if there are more then 150k playing on Xbox during peak hours, but that is pretty much normal numbers for the game at this stage of it's career.
You know what's sad? So many other games would kill to have numbers like these, but to IW these numbers now mean nothing so they have basically just stopped supporting the game.
I like both games, but my youtube channel mostly consists of MW3. You guys should check it out! We are kind of small but we try our best http://www.youtube.com/user/taintedk0?feature=mhee heres a link.
Actually the lag in BO2 isnt all that bad... Esspecially in comparison to the first Black Ops. What lag it does have is hard to even notice for the most part. When you lag in MW3 you know for a fact your lagging, where as in the new black ops, its hard to even tell.
I have been playing MW3 over Blops as much as possible. What makes it hard is the friends list. When you have so many playing Blops it is hard to get back into MW3. But MW3 is a superior game with much better hit detection and a lot less lag. As for the player base, there were over 80,000 online lastnight. No problem what so ever finding good lobbies.
I certainly will be as the only patch treyarch can come up with is actually putting in a working theatre mode and a few gun balances. WHY are they not fixing the lag comp? It is so annoying knowing that you are losing gunfights by a means which is out of your control and that makes me frustrated.
I agree with trustyskills 100% I sold my hardened edition 2 days later and haven't been off mw3 since its way better than B.O.2 I have even noticed #1 rank in F.F.A Arazos is also back on mw3 as well as most other top ranked players!!!! Pls hurry mw4 lol
