Will IW ever do anything about any of these issues?

THIS IS NOT ANOTHER HATE THREAD. I love Infinity Ward and think that these ideas can only help their game.



#1. Nuke Boosting.. I mean tactical insertions were just put in the game so people would stop bitching about spawn killing. Now the only people who use TI's are boosting with them or that .001% of players who use them and then have their TI camped until they die then get spawn killed



#2. OMA/Noob Tubing.. I know it's been discussed over and over again, but why would IW ever, ever make noob tubes have no downside what so ever? At least in Call of Duty 4 the most you could have was 4.. Now you can have as many as you want, don't lose a perk slot, and also you don't have to use up your second slot to get 2 extra tubes.. Why can't they make it take up the secondary or equipment which is what it basically did in CoD4 (i.e you get your tube, but lose your Claymore, C4, RPG, etc.)



#3. Host Migration glitches.. I don't really know if it's a glitch but whenever the host leaves you lose your Predator missile or your Pavelow just keeps shooting or your AC130 timer just keeps going or your airstrike drops while the game is paused.. This seems pretty easy and straight forward to fix. Will they ever do anything about it?



#4. All the broken gun silencers..

IW Game Designer : Alright here's the deal. You can put a silencer on your gun. What does it do? You'll be invisible on the Radar

Random Player : Alright! Anything else?

IW GD : You're damaged will be reduced over range and you can't use any other attachments unless you Bling out your gun

RP : Uh.. Ok then.



That seems reasonable eh? Well if you use the M9, MG4, and another LMG that escapes my mind, you'll be visible on radar when you shoot.. What the f*** is that IW?



#5. Elevator glitches..
Not really that big of a deal, but can't they take them out of the game? Or put a death barrier over the map just like they do under the map? Seems like an easy fix to me.



#6. Spawn system..
I won't go into detail about the spawns because I'll just be singing the same old song that everyone else signs up to sing on this forum, but please IW.. Can't you try SOMETHING? Maybe adding spawn delays to games like TDM (Don't even say play Hardcore because HC sucks ass.). That would cut down on the spawn killing a bit and leads me to my next topic.



#7. Overpowered Killstreak Rewards.. Alright #6 led me here now here I go. People are consistently complaining about the spawn killing done in KsR such as the Chopper Gunner or AC130.. Even the Harrier sometimes.. Adding a timer to your next life could help so much as you'll get less kills with KsR and won't die as much against them. That helps balance them right?



#8. The Commando..
I'm not going into detail because it's been bitched about so much that the letters C O M A N D are pretty worn out on gamers keyboards.. But please.. Do something with it. Just take it out. Whatever. I can't tell you how many times I'll be hiding from killstreak rewards and get knifed from 15+ feet away then on the killcam they're right next to me.. I understand it's whoever has the better connection to the host, but why give an advantage to players who have a better connection? That's just totally unfair. Just cut down the range like you did to lightweight, anything at all IW.



#9. Do something with EMP..
It's not even worth using because you don't get it until a 15 killstreak. Why would you even waste a killstreak on something like that? I went through 5 levels of prestige and on 3 of them I got EMP done just from Care packages without even using EMP as an actual KsR.. Just make it 13 kills to get or even 10. I can't tell you how many more players would use EMP if it was just easier to acquire and you didn't have to sacrifice your precious Harrier-Pavelow-Chopper set-up just to get 10 measly 15 kill streaks.. It's totally underpowered especially in comparison to the Nuke, AC130 and Chopper.. Hell even the Harrier blows EMP out of the water because it's totally useless. At least the UAV helps your team.. Run UAV. You'll always know where the enemy is. What does EMP really do? It takes out enemy KsR (which you shouldn't have a problem with if you're on a 15 killstreak anyways), enemy electronics, enemy radar and gives a nostalgic view to the battlefield for your enemies. How does any of the last 3 help your team.. I can understand radar a little bit but still.



#10.. I'm going to cut this short guys. The last issue they need to fix is their relationship with their community. There is hundreds of great, well thought out posts that will never see the light of day because Infinity Ward only (pretty much) uses Twitter to communicate with their community. Why? I seriously hope that changes one day and that us little people can actually have conversations with the big dogs at Infinity Ward so posts like these can have a chance to improve the quality of the game you're spending your (or your parent's) hard earned money to get, and actually get a say in what goes on and how the game should be handled.



Thanks for reading guys. This isn't a hate thread. I'm not angry. I'm just pointing out the obvious issues with Infinity Ward's game and their view on their community. Thanks again. Now off to Twitter to try to get someone to read this damn thing.



Some new things I thought about (I'll add to this if this thread gets a little bit of recognition).



#11 Who's a friendly? Why can't you tell who's a friendly in your Predator if you can tell who's an enemy? Just do something for that.. Put a green circle (helps the colorblind players) over friendlies and wasting your predator going for a triple kill of your teammates will be solved.



#12 Local Search.. The Aussies are pissed off. Give them what they want IW! Gotta love you guys. Haha

Unfortunately, if Infinity ward ever does fix anything in this game we will have all moved to COD: Vietnam. At least Trearch does local search.

@Keyboard Cat



I added bold to the major points so it's a little bit easier on your eyes.



The only important things are #10 and the first few.. But nothings new. Just tried to compile a list of things that need to be fixed then try to get this to someone at IW.. Anybody know the name of the janitor who cleans the bathrooms at IW Studios?

We've heard it all before. No need to waste your time. Every other thread is a complaint about one of these issues. Although, I think #10 is the reason that any of these problems are still here.

1-9 were old news, but you had a good point on number 10.

IW should take a look at bungie.net and see how they do it over there.



EDIT: meh salad get out of my mind

That's the only reason you're here? Just because IW doesn't have local search?



I'm sorry to hear that but I feel that MW2 blew WaW out of the water and the only thing Treyarch has going for them is Zombie mode.. But are people really going to player a 4 person zombies add-on mode rather than the actual online multiplayer?



Hell if everyone wanted zombies so badly they could play L4D.. There's plenty of things like that. I'm going to play CoD:Nam and I'm going to love the shit out of it. But still MW2 set the benchmark for shooter games and I don't think anyone can do anything better. This game is so love/hate. I love every little thing about this game like Game winning kill and titles/emblems. I love prestige challenges. I love so much and hate so much about it. No matter how much I hate this game I can't stop playing it.



I think IW could have made the best game ever if they would have just had a BETA of it or at least listened to little guys like me.

@sniper.799



Just another reason why I can't get enough of Bad Company 2. I can't wait til I get off my 2 week suspension and get back to my level 13 BC2 account. Gotta love the Tommy Gun on there too.. Too bad it's garbage once you get your XM8 Prototype.



That's real weird. I started a new account and on MW2 my KDR is 2.70 and I'm level 22. I started a new account on BC2 and my KDR is 0.68 and I'm level 3.. I have about 3 hours on MW2 and 2 on BC2.



Need anymore proof MW2 is tailored for casual gamers?

1. Marathon/Cold Blooded/ Sitrep



2. Blast Shield or Stop going towards the artillery.



3. Sucks for you.



4. Im pretty sure no many people use those guns, even with a silencer. And if they did use it, it would be on HC which makes no point since the Radar is gone.



5. Death barrier on top of map would probably destroy air support.



6. Use a T.I. to make your own spawn system.



7. Skill needs to be rewarded. Slight of Hand/ Cold Blooded/ Stinger.



8. Use a shotgun.



9. Harrier better than EMP? EMP destroys harrier no matter what. And since you have over powered Killstreaks so much use an EMP to disable those killstreaks, but you can't because you use those same over powered killstreaks.



10. what do you want them to do, Chat with the community or fix the game?



11. Well i can't blame you for that, i thought i was about to get a multi and then BOOM "friendly fire would not be tolerated"



12. Local search? as long as i don't know about it and it doesn't affect me, i don't give a damn.
