A Request to Infinity Ward...

Would you guys please adopt the Party Games Playlist that Treyarch implemented to stuff Split Screening party members into. I talked to Sis (Candy) about this a while back. This would be a even handed compromise.  They would go against Split Screeners, or 2 man teams of random or partied players.

I will never stop my ambition of having them separated from regular playlists/modes. This will have a positive effect somewhat in matche where people quit because the SSers are causing the scores to be nearly unconquerable.  Or at times they leave and leave the teams lopsided.

Feel free to discuss.

my you sure are passionate about this subject. well i like to play devils advocate so here goes.

I really dont think that ss has the big impact that you think it does. Bad kids are gonna play bad if they are split screening or not. Cheaters will boost weather they are split screening or not (they did all the time pre SS) I feel like the split screen was a great way to make COD a game you could enjoy more with friends (after all arnt we all here to have fun), but it has gotton the blame for kids that are not good at the game because they dont play on a constant basis

It isn't so much the bad performance they insert into the game, but the bad performance of the addition that SSing brought by its insertion, starting with Black Ops. I'm not going to believe that it causes no problems.  They run at 30 fps each-ish. So there has to be some kind of knock on effect, couple that with transmission of data, through the Internet,  with their low frame rate, splitting of a processor,  bandwidth,  elevation of ping.

while it may hinder them slightly i dont think it factors in as much as you think. I have done my fair share of split screening, and while i dont play at 100% i still do well (say about 90%) I think most of it comes from the split screeners just dont have alot of game time under their belt.

split screeners just needs to go for good.  i have 2 ps3 systems in my house just for that reason.  take them out.  And please do not let TREYARCH have ANY influence in this new title.  i fear it will look more like another cartoon like it does now.  no BS camos.  standard issue blending camos.  just a few inputs

I doubt they will do away with a free marketing scheme. I'm just trying to give a solution.

not every one is willing, or can afford, to buy two systems. While i still disagree with the separate playlist it is at least a reasonable proposal. Taking them out completly is ridiculous. if you wanna shell out that kinda money so you dont have to split screen than thats your buisness but dont expect every one else to do it as well

most ss i come across they are either boosting in infected or the other goes 0 and whatever stupid amount of deaths.  do not understand the fascination of having your tv cut in half.  as for my 2 ps3s my wife found out after i did it.  so yes it was pretty painful on my end. but my son would play on his own internet so i would try to limit any lag it would create.  ss was to painful for my old eyes thats why we have 2 and no i have 2 buy 2 ps4s.  cant wait to see the new upgrades.

I also think Split Screeners should be given their own "play area".

I think Split Screening has hurt the gameplay and it definitely totally unbalances teams - by handicapping you with two players that 99% of the time go REALLY negative.
