Xbox has just as much problems and complaints as PS3. They have freezes and glitches, not to mention people are already whining about guns being OP such as the MP7. Seriously? The game's been out for less than 3 days and you're already demanding nerfs?
Typical attitude of a CoD player:
OMGZZZZ DAT GUN STOPPED MA 1 KILLSTREAK IT'S SO OP!!!!!!11111
After alot of WTF moments, I'm starting to get in line with all of the whiners...lmao
The game just seems "off". I can't explain it. It takes an entire clip (smg, assault rifle, etc...) to kill someone (range is not the issue). Even sometimes in combat training when I am playing against bots (local). If you run into more than one guy, forget about it..you will be caught in a reload and then dead. The buddy system is a good idea...be safe out there.
The spawns are pretty funny actually. I've spawned killed so many guys. I'm running around and poof, a guy just spawns there...I kill him and I feel sorta bad...ok, not really...lol.... But it does seem like I'm always getting shot in the back. I think that's because there are SOOOO many paths in the maps...
Old school sniping is officially dead. There aren't alot of clear lines of sight on these maps. You can go high (in a building window, etc...), but even then you don't get alot of cover and claymore's and betties are unlocked very late. And there are always multiple paths to your lookout.
Quickscoping seems to be the new way to use a sniper rifle. Maybe if you have a team to watch your back, sniping will be fun...but lone wolf is going to be tough with constant UAV's and no ghost. I'm a below average quickscoper, and you should see some of my kills...I look sooooo l3gitsnIp3rz-ish.
Vahn was quoted as saying on a livestream to someone who hardscoped him " Hardscoping? Get good!". That kind of tells you the attitude towards traditional sniping.
Hopefully, these issues will be fixed and we will get as much attention as the other consoles. But I'm just perplexed by this particular version. It's really hard to find "your groove" if you know what I mean. Probably just takes time. But it may just be that this game is really suited to having a team (watch each others back) instead of playing lone wolf. Maybe FFA is better for lone wolf now?
I've heard it's lag/ lag compensation that's messing everyone up.
I had a feeling proper sniping would be almost nonexistant in this game...but I'm not too sad since I wasn't the greatest sniper in past CoDs anyway
The "team-suited" gamestyle might be on purpose to encourage objective play, teamwork, etc.
Yes canuck, somthing is off...even the really good players are noting it. It took maccabi a LONG time to convice IW they had a problem with their matchmaking system (which they did). I just hope (if there is a problem), the devs actually listen. The devs like to say things like:
"Its all in your head"
Remember JD2020?. Yea, that was him.
I think it is team suited. All the public matches on TDM now have guys defending one position and each other. With all the UAV's up, it's the only way to survive...lol
So get your clan on!
Wow. Looks like PS3 has it bad. No wonder they bash him (Vohnderhaar or however you spell it). Xbox seems to have fewer issues. I said it before and I'll say it again. I expect this game to have major issues at lauch. New system, new network, and new game = issues. I just hope they patch this one better than they did the Wii versions. If it's jacked up, try to play nice. They (3arch) respond better to that. Just list the complaints in a nice, professional matter and hope for the best.
They won't. Every version of the game gets SCREWED OVER BY ALL MIGHTY ACTIVISION until a few months after launch. They have to take care of Microsoft first, since they're the ones paying $$ to have DLC on their console first. Why do people buy DLC? Because they like the game. Why do they like the game? Because it works. Since DLC is released on Xbox first, its obvious they want to fix the glitches there as fast as possible. It makes sense when you don't think about it.
ALL IN ALL IF YOU WANT TO BLAME SOMEONE FOR YOUR SUBPAR CALL OF DUTY EXPERIENCE, BLAME MICROSOFT.
Every game with online mutiplayer is released broken. They have to release it this way. If they didn't and it was perfect on launch people wouldn't expect more. When people expect more, they'll get more. But when it's perfect there will be no complaints and people won't want anything else.
Yeah I know. Just trying to give people hope. Then you have to send all that hope crashing down by telling the truth. It's true and it does make sense. Should we blame Activision for being money hungry? I don't think so. Everyone likes money. So I'm with you. Blame microsoft.
