New Public Playlists for Modern Warfare 3

Friday, December 16th, we're updating the playlists on Modern Warfare 3 to introduce some new game modes as well as change up some existing ones.

The biggest change you'lll notice is the addition of Community Playlists. This is where we will add popular or unique private match modes to the public playlists, so you can start ranking up on them! The first playlist changes for Modern Warfare 3 multiplayer are listed below:

DROP ZONE

Get to the drop zone to earn points, the first team to 7500 points wins the round, but thats not all. As long as the Drop Zone is occupied, a care package will drop every 15 seconds, which ever team has the most members in the drop zone at that point "owns" the care package, but anyone can steal it. This is the only way to earn air support in this mode, all other pointstreaks are disabled. You'll earn 20 points per team member, for every second they're in the drop zone plus 20 XP individually for your time spent in the zone. Kills are worth 50 XP in this mode.

Custom Settings: Pointstreaks (besides those obtained through in-game care packages) are disabled.

Hardcore HQ Ricochet

We'll be adding Hardcore Headquarters to the Hardcore Team Tactical playlist.

Hardcore Ricochet

We'll be converting all Hardcore modes to Ricochet variant as a response to team killing. This means, any friendly fire, is applied to the attacker, rather than the victim. So choose your shots wisely and any attempt to team kill will simply kill yourself.

I'd rather have them actually fixing the game instead of making new playlists. Also, WTF is our Deathstreak free playlist 402? I thought you were "pushing for it." Or was that one of your many, many lies you said about this game?

Title updates and various other things have been openly spoken about on our boards by developers. It may not be a the speed that you like, but they are working on "fixes."

Is that not how it always is foxhound. that no matter what is given they want more, and its never enough because it was not the tweak or change or nerf or buff or addition that they wanted instead. Wow, the mindset of so many of players of this game is just really sad at times.

There is no such thing as a true balanced game and never has been. There is always going to be one gun or weapon that will out perform the others in all games. you can not perfectly balance the guns in the game against each other it is not possible. But people hear the word fair and think that it has to be applied to the game to the fullest extent of what that word means. So anything that even gives anyone any slight advantage is not fair, and needs to be nerfed or redone to make it fair for everyone. Games are not about being 100% fair all the time with everything. The perks alone unbalance the game in ways that can not be balanced. The attachments unbalance the guns in ways that can not be rebalanced and still keep the weapon effective to use. Individual player ability to aim accurately unbalances the weapons and can not be balanced against. So no the game will never be perfectly balanced and fair as some people think it should be. It will always have imbalances in how some of the weapons and equipment and perks and kill streaks and death streaks effect the outcome of each battle. After all life is not fair either...

exactly. well said.  What about a playlist with no deathstreaks, no Type 95, no ACR or MP7 lazor beams, no akimbo machine pistols (no FMG9 at all), no XM25, no Assassin, and all the other BS?

What's wrong with the XM25? HC i can see a problem but core it like the other launchers are pretty terrible, unless you know how to use them, and nothing wrong with the MP7... so why you complain about it, when you actually defended it in your other thread? You sir make no sense.

how about you just take out everything in the game. no one is asking you to play the game so stop complaining about what is in it.
