Do you understand what they mean by making matchmaking more difficult?
I would assume they think it means by adding playlists it would spread the existing HC playerbase out making it more difficult for players to find games... not assuming that (shocking caps lock revelation incoming)
ADDING POPULAR GAME MODES WOULD BRING MORE PLAYERS TO HC ....
..just like what happened when HCKC was rotated it, which probably brought in 10k extra people not previously in HC.
That is why they don't add all game modes to HC. They don't add just one more because they can't. They would have to remove one to add another.
I would agree with that too. Sorry if there was some confusion. I was trying to get restore_hardcore to understand that no mode is better then another and that it just comes down to preference.
That's where you are wrong, the hit detection in core is bad and HC doesn't have that problem nearly as bad. You play HC so you should know this. HC just flat out plays better than core. Core is inconsistent, play a few matches of both and you will see. Lag is horrible in core but the effects of lag aren't as bad in HC. If you want to be the spokesperson for 3arc submit an application, either that or stop making excuses for them. The numbers in HC would go up if we had a mosh and DOM. Sorry if I offended you earlier but you have trolled me hard in the past. 3arc's games lag more than IW's, at least in my experience. Like I said, how is it that I have no problem finding HC games to play going as far back as WAW? I can't say anything about CoD4 cause I got hacked out about a year ago. There is no excuse for the lack of HC support. HC is what they should be building off of instead of catering to newer players with core. Ya I know vets play core (guess they enjoy mowing down noobs). There is a reason it's called hardcore and why IW classifies it under the "Advanced Playlist". Don't come at me saying core is harder, I already listed the reasons why core is a lot easier. Core has it's challenges and I'm not saying you have to be a noob to play it but HC is the advanced mode period. Core is littered with problems and inconsistent gameplay. I've been playing shooters since the 80's so I think I know what I'm talking about, and so does most of the HC community.
The issues are still is HC just less noticeable. If you want to keep the ignorant opinion that players who play one game mode are better over all then do it. I'm not stopping you. But just because you think that playing it makes you better and is not just a preference doesn't mean it still isn't ignorant.
F.Y.I. IW called them "Advanced Playlist" because they had advanced rules. Meaning differnt from the normal ones. HC, Team Tac, Mosh Pit, and Barebones are are variants of Core. Rather it be the less health and no HUD of HC, the less team mates of Team Tac, the lack of everything in Barebones, or the always changing game modes in Mosh Pit. It was called advanced because the rules not because the players are better,
Hey RedNeck, looking at the amount of posts you have, I think you play Forums more than the game. So that would make us more experienced at game-play.lol....
But I do agree with you, that to give a mode (KC) they have to remove a mode (FFA), which is very short sightedness of the programers or Vahn's bossyness to have his League modes. Are they trying to phase out HC for League? Now if league play had a HC option I would play it. Or does it, I haven't tried!
I don't know about that. Over 150 days played in game since COD 4. That is not to mention the uncounted time in 1, 2 ,and 3. I doubt they will do away with HC for league since it has been such a failure. They just won't remove it from this game since it was Vahn's idea. I don't expect it to be in their next title. Here is to hoping for more modes in the future but I'm not getting my hopes up.
Looking at the amount posts you have you obviously don't know how long these forums have been around. Oh yeah, lol.
