Look, I want to enjoy MW3. I honestly do. But I just can't... I haven't played this game in over 3 weeks. Sometimes I want to put MW3 back in and play it again but I'm instantly reminded of all the garbage in this game that is impossible to avoid and made me stop playing in the first place and almost break the disc.
Before the game launched, Robert Bowling was going about his usual trolling activities and fulfilling his job description of lying to the community, telling us that he was "pushing for a no-deathstreak playlist." Well, this game has been out 4 months and that playlist has yet to see the light of day. We shouldn't be suprised that we were blatantly lied to about just 1 more thing, but seriously, why can't we just have 1 bullsh*t-free playlist? Just 1, a simple moshpit type rotating the most popular game modes that has restrictions on all the things people find annoying.
I literally can't play more than 2 consecutive games of MW3 without rage quitting, ejecting the disc, and going back to Black Ops or BF3. I haven't even tried the new Overwatch map because I just can't get myself to go through the chore of putting up with deathstreaks, akimbo machine pistols, stealth bomber spamming and EMP spamming, heartbeat sensors, Type 95's, and overall terrible weapon balance.
Please, IW, for the sake of your long-time hard-core (ex)fanbase that have played since pre-COD4 days, give us a Veteran Playlist. All it needs is:
-No Support Strike Package
-Either no akimbo or no machine pistol secondaries at all
And then various restrictions on things that the community would vote on in these forums or elsewhere (voting on whether certain weapons like the ACR, Type 95, MP7, and Striker should be restricted, and other things like the Assassin perk, the UAV, heartbeat sensors/portable radars, and the Kick proficiency).
I'm skeptical because restricting certain guns from this playlist would basically mean IW would be admitting that yes, those weapons/attachments/etc actually are OP, and IW doesn't like to admit when they make mistakes. Look, I really don't care if people can run around with all the OP garbage they want in every other public playlist, just give us ONE playlist where we can be free from that garbage. PLEASE! Stop only caring about the casual weekend gamer crowd who want the easiest, most noob-friendly game ever made simply because they give you more of an economic profit because they are larger in numbers. Please support the old-time COD veterans who got you to where you are today.
One last thing: Trialderpdragon isn't allowed to post here. I tried to get that in the CoC but it didn't work.
