Not all people believe the developers should listen to the community. Its not necessarily a democracy. Every player has their own idea and preferences to how the game should be. When one part of the community gets their way, there is another part of the community that disagrees.
I'ld rather the developers create their game based on good ideas and stick to their decisions. Then the community just adapts and respects their creation. Or doesn't and has to live with it.
@ IHattor ... your response to my post is exactly what I've posted many times. The devs should depend upon artistic creativity instead of economic theory in finding customers.
In any case, no, I was serious - how does the create a class work? I haven't gotten the game yet, I wanted to see how people reacted to it and I'm hoping to rent a copy over Thanksgiving so anything I've posted is strictly based upon critical analysis of what others think, not actual experience. I'm genuinely curious as to how the create a class works. Before we had an option of 10 classes, I relied heavily upon 5 classes - LMG/AA, a sniper class, a shotgun class, an SMG stealth class, and an AR class. With 10 classes, you can get more creative but it's never been necessary. Personally, if there is a limit to custom classes, then that's more evidence that they've moved back toward the artistic creativity they had way back at MW1. I like that. It gives me hope.
You get more than 3, you just have to buy them with squad points. I believe they start at 20 SP and increase by 5 or 10 each time. And, since you can buy 10 different squad members each capable of having 6 loadouts, you can potentially have 60 different loadouts. Just takes time to get that quantity of squad points.
I LOVE this game. It's 100 times better than Black Ops 2. Black Ops 2 hit detection was atrocious! I'd shoot someone in the back with an assault rifle only to have them turn around and kill me with one shot from a PISTOL. I tried many times to give Black Ops 2 a chance, but every time I played it was just as bad as the last. This game is solid for sure. Are there problems right now with the game? Yes there are. But once the patch gets released I'm sure they will address the problems. This game is making me forget about Modern Warfare 3 which i loved.
