So, though the emergency TU did absolutely nothing for matchmaking or game play, I've foudn that turning my map packs off got me in games faster. Cool, right? Well, not so much. Still dealing with lag, and thought I'd just take advantage of some of that Double XP to at least prestige and get to level 20, to have specialist, and be set for when stuff gets fixed.
Well, Guess what my highest level gun is right now? The freakin' KSG at lvl 6. I'm Lvl 20 and my highest gun level is 6. My medicine's helped me keep my cool, and I've even started to just shrug the fact that my KD dropped drastically, seeing as how three weeks ago, I've maintained a 1.110 average. Which, You all on the forums are like,"Damn noob." But to me, that's pretty good for me seeing as how I don't really play FPS games much. But now within ten games, I went from 1.096 all the way down to 1.081.
I'd like to see if maybe Ban Candy or whomever at activision can reset those stats due to them working on their lag compensation, but that's basically a tough S*** moment, I'm aware. But seriously. What if this game never gets fixed? I have to just swallow my pride and trade it in to some shitty ass gaming store that will make double the profit on what they'll give me for the game, or try my luck on a raigslist and deal with creepers? I shouldn't have to. I mean, I play black ops, and though the lag comp is kwonky to use an odd term to say it, but for the most part, it's really more managable then mw3 is. I at least maintain my 24.15% accuracy on there with out it constantly going down .5 points every game because of this lag comp. I mean, As a shitty gamer playing black ops as my first CoD MP since I had gotten an xbox about 3 years ago, but you know, it's really ruining the fun for me.
I really know when I'm bested, I really do, and I accept that as a challenge to try to better myself. But if everything's dead on, or grenades aren't even going off, stun grenades never go off, grenade lock ons follow a piece and just don't even acknowledge it even hit it, it just really pisses me off and sets me off, and it makes me think that's primarily the onyl reason why activision comes out with tehse games. Just to piss the **** off of people. lol This is my second rant, and I'm sure there will be trolls to just say I suck. And I'll admit, I'm not that great a player. Hell, with Blops being my first one, I'm 0.66 KDR. But I still go 1-2.0KD in every game on there now compared to constantly going in the negative, or barely breaking even in the games.
I just really would like to hope the devs plan on fixing it. I mean, I know they SAY they are fixing it, but I mean, I've played BIoshock 2's MP and was into their forums as well, and was told that they'd update a lobby matchmaking for people who bought the mp map pack for it so people could play it. and what happened there? They lead us on to believe it will happen, and then they wait two months of us waiting before saying,"Sorry, our team is focusing on other projects, and we won't be able to help you. Sorry you wasted your ten dollars, and we can't do anything for you to give you anything back." Which is exactly why I don't really support any 2K MP programs anymore. I enjoy the CoD Series. I used to hate it, and seeing as how I have seizures and I play the games on an SD TV and I have doctor permision to play these games is wonderful.
But if the game just constantly pisses you off, why should you play it, you know? I mean, you're thinking,"Oh, if it pisses you off, why play it?" Because I payed sixty dollars for the game that showed it hat so many promises that it would be improved, and I'll admit, I had absolutely no problems at first until all these other updates started coming up, then it's been hell. I thought it was my connection. No, it's the lag comp ruining my connection. thought my ports weren't forwarded to the xbox? Nope. Everything's open and spread eagle for that sweet, sweet, gaming loving. I even at some point thought it was my skill. And I've been sober for a long time now, and even if my shots are dead on, and they don't register. Please. Please.
I'd like to hope you devs are working hard on fixing the matchmaking so I can enjoy the DLC I bought, and at least make the lag comp a little more tolerable. Forget balancing the guns and stuff, you did what you could, and it's enough for now. Focus on the connection issues before you focus on gameplay mechanics. And whoever reads this, I'm sorry you read this long rant, as you'll probably be miffed and just want to try tearing me a new one on wasint your time, but I've got no one else to rant to, and this is perfect for me. So, if you click on it and read it, and want to ***** to me about it, just go on and think to yourself...You were the one who clicked on this forum post to see what had to have been said by another forum member ******** about the game.
Edit: I hope you trolls enjoyed the edit. As stated in the whole discussion, it was posted more for just ranting reasons. I'm perfectly fine with my grammar, but it's pretty obvious I'm irritated at the game, so errors are bound to happen.
