I come from the PC gaming world but I’ve become so sick of the half arsed COD consol rips we get stuffed with and the huge amount of hackers to flood the PC version I bought an Xbox and MW3 for what I thought was going to be a better gaming experience. HAHA how could I of been so wrong. I can put my hand on my heart and for once say at least the PC community wasn’t the only people to get shafted and ripped off by this game. It has by far the worst online COD playing experience I have ever seen and I’ve played them all.
Latency and the problems is causes in the game are ridicules. Even now if I get host I know by the 4th death I’m hosting as I can’t kill any one unless I shoot them from behind and even then a full mag doesn’t do it every time. This should have been fixed ASAP. Everything else should have been dropped, including your pathetic attempt at gun rebalancing lol, Type 95 rebalanced my A.... When a person is penalized for paying to make his gaming experience as good as it possible can be and you go and ruin that with this stupid latency compensator that does not work as in other COD. YOU FAILED..... Plain and simple. Why it is still affecting so many people is beyond my understanding. Maybe I should just pay out for a dial up lol.
Spawning is past the point of pathetic. On some games you can get killed as the game starts from one spawn to the other. The spawn system is open to huge abuse for double kills and to be spawned on to or into ongoing damage is totally unacceptable and should have been fixed right away.
Quick scoping is now so easy that I can’t seem to get any games where 2 QSers do not dominate the game. When a QSer can win 30 to 10 and no one else comes close, I’d say it has become a problem.
Sniper rifles have basically become up close shotguns that have no practical use in any other aspect of the game. You are at a 90% disadvantage is you even try and play a sniper as a sniper should be played. No other COD has made playing a sniper class so pathetic. I don’t like Battlefield 3 as a game but they are miles ahead when it comes to the sniper play style. You don’t get QSing noobs domination there games.
UAV are up so often in whatever game mode you play. I’m very shocked there hasn’t been any mid air collisions by now. Makes lot’s of players feel you have no choice but to run Assassin or play at a disadvantage. Not cool what so ever.
There are too many Air support kill streaks and there just so OP it’s a joke. I now run Blind eye all the time or really I’m left with very little choice but to camp 50% of the game. I don’t run about like a headless chicken but I do like to play an active game. Air support just prevents the game from being fun and 75% of the time on set maps like DOME it’s really an auto win unless someone like me runs blind eye and stingers. I personally run the specialist kill streak as I’d rather get a good kill ratio due to my abilities and not a computer controlled chopper.
IW stated in a press release (that I can’t find now) that they wanted to discourage camping in MW3 and make it a more active and fun game. Well you failed big time. I agree there are no truly abusive camp points like some of the previous COD’s but never the less there are ample enough to make moving about a pain as you can’t cover every angle. But I also like to point out due to the above mentioned problems with air support I can understand why so many camp.
That’s just a few points but there are many more I won’t go into. The above are ones I feel are ruining my gaming experience and due to these and the fact I’m sick of 14 year old abusive children in most of my games. I’ve put the game away as of today. I feel you launched a three quarter finished game and you have basically taken the piss out of the people that support your company by buying your product. I’d love to think your next COD would flop to teach you some respect and humility towards your customers but by the time the next COD is launched, people will have forgotten about all this and buy it any way.
