            So how about giving us these for a update:

             

            Raise the Time to kill for all non 1 hit weapons to give anyone not using a sniper rifle a chance to counter a enemy.

            Decrease the toughness of the guard dog.

            Add more classic game modes such as Headquarters or demolition.

            Give the community a connection bar to see how well they are connected to that lobby.

            Make changes to infection so we can have rotating weapons and perks with every new game.

            Give the Community a Mute player option during a match or in the lobby without going to the dashboard.

             

             

            There is a lot to like about the game and a lot not to like about it. But some changes should be made to make the player happy. I play in a full party all the time and thse are all the common complaints of who I play with.

              Why not be smart and fix things that cause an issue with how the game is played.  Not your preferences.

               

              As for your mute player comment.  There is an option if you press start.  You can mute all but your party.

                Everyone has there wish list. When it comes to glitches, cheats, bugs or in game issues caused by a design flaw. Then these are expected to get reported and fixed. There is no reason to ask or expect them not to fix those things.

                 

                As for issues with game play. Just like you stated. It is preference of what one see's in the game and what you want from it Personally I don't like the design of the maps, layout of things in the maps, I feel some weapons are to strong and some not strong enough. But those are my personal preferences. I gave my list of what I think could approve upon a game and make it more enjoyable.

                  I think they already did something about the dog health even before this patch. I've killed plenty of dogs easily and my dog doesn't seem to last all that long either compared to launch. Just my opinion though....

                  • 6. Re: Ghosts Xbox One Updates (12/2/13)

                    Man I got killed by the guard dog one of the KEM. I raged so hard. I mean amagine if youre on a 23 gunstreak and a dog kills you. :O

                        here is my "wish list" of future patches a.k.a the things I want nerfed

                        - The MSBS is super annoying and a cheap gun to use

                        - quick scoping/ make snipers a two hit kill at close range (I know this will NEVER happen but I threw it on the list anyway)

                        -spawns well its an infinity ward game sooo...

                        -a playlist just for small maps so like Octane, Strike zone, maybe even free fall and a few other maps

                        really that's it there are a few more that I cant think of right now but overall this Is a pretty solid game I'm impressed so far  I.W

                          Also more gun choices in infected so basically the same setup in infected as in MW3 because as good as the bulldog is it get really stale to keep having to use it and a gun that could kill at long ranges would be nice like a sniper, assault rifle or even an smg
