I know this iteration of COD has a strong focus on Clan Play, but why not throw the lone wolves a bone and include some Mercenary game types in the mix. Particularly during clan wars, life as a loner can be ugly.
Not only would it give me a more balanced place to play when I'm running solo, but it would also remove some of the problems relating to people backing out of lobbies when they see a clan on the other side.
Cool. That's a good suggestion. I experienced players backing out in a game too. Cheers for that.
