As some of you may have seen/noticed/read/heard/guessed/assumed/predicted...it looks like the hc fans didn't get the entire range of game modes again, and there has been a few gripes and the odd dummy (pacifcers for the across the pondy peeps) being spat...BUT it's time to equip rainbows and unicorns pro and look to the postives and put down the tar and feathers for abit.
Now I'm sure like me alot of you have seen the playlists for hc (I won't list them here as I still consider that a spoiler) and to be honest there is a small chance it isn't the final list as we still have to wait to see what changes are made on the actual release day. But from what it looks like we have gained the two new modes, and lost ctf and hq but hey we got dom so who cares ..ok actually we do... but you lot deserved that you know who you are (.......pauses while numerous people scream, rant ,rage, quit, claim to be in clans with a member list getting on for the entire population of china who will now all quit, refuse to buy the next cod game ect ect ect).
So what to do about it well first off I'd suggest give it a few days/ a good week and see how these new game modes play in HC, you never know they might play better than hq and ctf and lets be honest here one thing we did learn from the hc flags and bombs shenanigans is some people did enjoy trying out new modes. So the important word here is feedback not backlash, By this I mean it is better to instead of saying wah this sucks gimme ctf you guys suck wah to explain why you dont like it, These new modes are new to everyone and no one likes change , one thing we learnt from testing the new hc modes for blops was sometimes things you think wont work do and vice versa..
Secondly we have an awesome tool (not me although im sure alot would disagree) this time round in that we have the ability to make custom game modes and upload them to Elite, now if the speel comming from mw3 towers is true, then there is a chance popular game modes could be added at a later date if enough people like /play /use them.
Thirdly lets try to speak with a unified voice this time round, for those that aren't familar with MHCGM we are basically a collective of gamers who enjoy HC, our members come from various gaming communities, sites, clans to single players who just prefer hc. We have a good relationship with the various COD dev teams and the movers and shakers in the cod community and want to present the devs with a single one stop goto place for a heartbeat on the hc community, The realities are HC takes up a small percentage of the player base that doesn't mean we are ignored it just means we are usually the ones who have to accept compromises more. One thing we have def taken on board since the flagsandbombgate is the more input we can garner from hc fans BEFORE presenting suggestions to the devs means there is going to be less chance of a percentage of the hc community baying for our blood rightly or wrongly, so new game, new day, new goal,line drawn under blops... scratch off the names you carved in your pitchforks last time and work with US.
All feedback is welcome, suggestions, offers of help, naming first borns after cable but keep it polite and friendly and lets all work together and not at polar opposites for the same goals and lets show these noobs in core how to act .
We will be very active on here , in elite in the group MHCGM, twitter (see the logo new one comming soon) and that facebook thing.
