Activision sued for up to $125 million by current, former Infinity Ward employees

Activision's Call of Duty-related headaches just leveled up.

More than three dozen former and current employees of Infinity Ward, the Encino-based development studio that made the hugely successful Call of Duty: Modern Warfare video games for Activision Blizzard Inc., have sued the publisher claiming that they are owed between $75 million and $125 million in unpaid royalties and potentially more in compensatory damages.

...

Of the 38 employees involved in the lawsuit, 21 are former employees of Infinity Ward; 17 still work there. Approximately 95 people worked at Infinity Ward on last November's Modern Warfare 2, meaning that about 40% of its employees at that time are now suing Activision.

...

The lawsuit says that Activision owes Infinity Ward employees a bonus pool of at least $118 million, of which $82 million is supposed to go to employees other than West and Zampella.

It alleges that the publisher has withheld royalty payments in order to keep them from leaving as their former bosses did, putting at risk the potentially hugely lucrative release of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 planned for late 2011.

"Activision engaged in this inappropriate course of conduct in an attempt to force employees of Infinity Ward to continue to work at a job that many of them did not want just so Activision could force them to complete the development, production and delivery of Modern Warfare 3," the suit says.
It goes on to allege that Activision representatives told Infinity Ward employees that if West and Zampella had not been fired, the employees would have received bonuses approximately 2.5 times higher than what they were paid on March 26.

An Activision spokeswoman said she was not aware of the lawsuit and could not immediately comment.

The complaint filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court in Santa Monica is based in part on the same allegations contained in West and Zampella's suit. Isaacs has asked that the two cases be consolidated.

By Stephen Totilo on April 12, 2010 at 11:30 PM

The drama involving the creators of the biggest franchise in gaming continues as Jason West and Vince Zampella, the fired former lead creators of Modern Warfare 2, have formed a new company, Respawn Entertainment. EA, their formal rival, is backing.

The Monday morning news announcing the new company follows a Friday that saw Activision, the mega-publisher that fired Jason West and Vince Zampella from their leadership positions at Modern Warfare development studio Infinity Ward, suing the ousted creators for “misdeeds.” West and Zampella had sued Activison a month prior.

But today the two creators are announcing a new company and an exclusive publishing deal with Activision rival Electronic Arts.

“Respawn Entertainment marks a fresh start for Jason and me,” Zampella said in a statement. “For the past decade we led a great development team and poured our hearts into creating an epic game franchise. We’re very proud of what we built – and proud that so many millions of fans enjoyed those games. Today we hope to do it all over again — open a new studio, hire a great team, and create brand new games with a new partner, EA.”

“We’re excited,” West said. “Now that the team is in control of the games and brands, we can ensure that the fans are treated as well as they deserve.”

While West and Zampella’s experience has recently involved military first-person shooters, including EA’s Medal of honour series, which they worked on prior to handling Call of Duty and Modern Warfare for Activision, they offered no details on the new game.

The release indicated only that “the company will focus on creating state-of-the-art gaming experiences for global audiences.”

Kotaku will have more on this story as it breaks.

By Owen Good on April 9, 2010 at 7:40 AM
Modern Warfare 2’s five-map, $US15 “Stimulus Package” will arrive for both PS3 and PC in North America on May 4, the game’s studio just said via Twitter.

Infinity Ward’s Robert Bowling said Australia and Europe gets the PS3 version of the downloadable content on May 5. The PC release date of May 4 is global.

-Stimulus Package out now for 360.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=23ej5WEFyik
Kakos and I found out how to prevent yourself from being the host on the PC. If you block the server port from a firewall or router your game will have weird issues joining other people's games but if you go edit the
\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 2\players\config_mp.cfg file you can change some of your system settings to make it look like you have a horrible computer. Then it won't select you to be the host.

I changed the following two lines:
seta sys_configureGHz "2" (originally 18 ghz)
seta sys_sysMB "512" (originally 2048)

The key is you must make the file 'read only' after you are finished saving other wise mw2 will automatically change these values back. When you start up MW2 it will say some settings have changed do you want to automatically adjust settings and make sure you click NO.

GUYS THEY FIXED ALL OF THE CARE PACKAGE SHENANIGANS YOU CAN COME BACK NOW. THAT MEANS YOU, 360 GUYS.

Holographic Sight Known Effects, Other Glitches/Notes Too.

-M16A4's recoil significantly decreased while equipped.

[STRIKE]-SPAS-12's spread of shot tightened up, creating a longer 1-shot-kill range.[/STRIKE]

-FAL's damage increased from 55-35 to 55-40 while using the sight, which then allows 2 shot kills at any range (using Stopping Power) even with a silencer.

-MG4, M240, and the M9 do not benefit from equipping a Silencer. That is to say, when firing these weapons while silenced, you will still appear on the radar when you fire.


MORE EFFECTS SOON TO COME.

Ground Rules

I've PM'd Echo about these, since I don't want to come off sounding like I think I have Mod-like powers, but I'll post them in this spoiler and let you guys decide whether they sound reasonable.
Due to previous controversy, I’m setting out some rules to ensure that we all have a good time here.

-No ‘LOL Treyarch’ posts: I don’t care if your cat was run over by a Treyarch employee, this is the MW2 thread, stay on topic.

-No PC vs console arguments: We’re all here to enjoy Modern Warfare 2, so play nice, and don’t perpetuate this stereotype of internet forums.

-Keep ethical debate civil: Discussing the inner workings of a game is what these threads are all about, but once again, play nice.

On Dedicated Servers, etc: This argument appears to have died down, and while any thread on even the most AAA of games is going to have people bring up (often legitamate) gripes (like Killer Croc in Batman:AA, or No Fighting in the War Room in this thread), I would like to think that the people who have been turned off from MW2 (your call and I respect your decision) have said their piece and can leave this thread to the people who are excited about this game.

-Remember your spoiler tags!


Work-around to lack of Party Chat by Sivraj:

But for anyone trying to play multiplayer with their friends, here's an alternative to party chat:

http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/2009/11/09/alternative-to-party-chat-in-call-of-duty-modern-warfare-2/

From the site:
Step One: Go to Xbox.com and log in to your account
Step Two: From your profile page, click on Privacy Settings (it's just to the right of your avatar)
Step Three: The top option should say Voice and Text. Set it to Friends Only. Save.

Now whenever you play "Modern Warfare 2" multiplayer you'll only hear people you are friends with.

Basically, you set your "Voice and Text" option to Friends Only. BAM, problem solved :D. I'm not sure if you can do it from your console though. The website only explains how to do it through Xbox.com.

Multiplayer Facts
Link
Friday, 13 November 2009
Modern Warfare 2The handling of weapons has changed significantly, they have been moved to one of the game's "fastfiles", encrypted.

My ability is not enough to crack them, though others have fared better.

At least the multiplayer weapons still operate very much like their COD4 predecessors.
Weapon damage in increments of ten. Damage loss after a distance depending on the weapon type.

Testing from other sources has confirmed the use of a damage of "35" for weapons.
The intent for this is likely to make Stopping Power less "powerful".
For example, the FAL may deliver 50-35 damage. Because of this, Stopping Power's benefit is not prevalent - 50 is already two shots and 35 is three, Power bringing it up to 49 damage will still require three shots. It does appear to have at least a 1.5x headshot multiplier, similar to the M14, allowing a one headshot kill up close with Stopping Power.

Sniper rifles use the 70 damage with varying 1.5 and 1.1 multipliers.

The silencer appears to have a negative effect to sniper rifles, LMGs and possibly other weapons that do not lose damage over distance.
Also shotgun range is decreased by silencers.

Details on things that are not guns, of what was able to be ripped out of the fastfiles (so far) thanks to gagarin.

Sentry Gun has 1000 points of health.
Explosives deliver 7x their damage against a Sentry.
A Melee attack will instantly disable the Sentry.
The Sentry has the potential to fire continuously for eight seconds.
It recovers fully in four. If it "overheats", it will take eight seconds.

The UAV has 700 health and hangs around for thirty seconds.

Both Helicopters and the Pavelow have 1500 health.
The AI controlled Helicopters use three of the four same old Threat Factors.
Class Threat has been removed, presumably due to the Secondary Weapon diversity.

The Harrier has 3000 health.
Luckily, lots of things will instantly kill it (or at least really hurt it (and all other aircraft).
A Stinger, Javelin and other killstreaks (like the remote missile and AC130 guns) will instantly destroy it.
The RPG7 and AT4 will do whatever damage they do AND an extra 900 points of damage.

The AC-130 apparently only has 1000 health.
This is probably offset by the fact that it has two flare countermeasures and is way up in the air.
It lasts 40 seconds. All three guns are all available. They have a reload time of:
25mm = 1.5
40mm = 3.0
105mm = 5.0

The Care Package and Emergency Airdrop have a chance of dropping anything (except nukes).
Care Package has a much higher probability of dropping other low-Streak hardpoints, while the Emergency Airdrop evens up the chances for nearly anything up to the EMP.

On perks and a few other things:

The wait time between bursts for the FAMAS and M16 is still 0.2 seconds.

Stopping Power is still 1.4x against players.
Stopping Power Pro increases its damage against vehicles by 1.65x.

Danger Close is a bit stronger than it's predecessor, 1.4x increase in damage (rather than 1.25).

Blast Shield equipment cuts damage down to 0.45x (or 0.65?), ensuring almost always surviving anything.
Blast Shield and Danger Close will cancel each other out.
Semtex stuck to the player will ignore Blast Shield.

Commando adds 176 units of measurement to its 64 inch melee strike.
Commando Pro does indeed cut off all damage for any fall... and it appears that a lethal fall will make the player do a barrel roll instead.

Rapid Fire attachment has the same effect as Double Tap, multiplying time between shots by 0.75x (other way around, Rate of fire by 1.33x)
FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) attachment has the same effect as Deep Impact, greatly improving penetration through walls and objects.

Painkiller adds 200 health to the player. If the player suffers at least 101 points of damage while Painkiller is active... he gets a reward. Throwing knives and melee attacks will still kill in one hit.

One Man Army allows the player to change his class on the fly in 6 seconds.
One Many Army Pro cuts that down to 3. It takes the place of the secondary weapon and can not be dropped.

Sleight of Hand still cuts reload time in half. Pro halves both sighting in and out.

Lightweight will multiply movement speed by 1.1x (I dunno, that's what it reads)
Lightweight Pro will multiply the delay between sprinting and being able to attack by 0.6x.

Ninja Pro and SitRep Pro will multiply Player footstep sound by 0.25x and enemy footsteps by 4x respectively.

The problem shotgun hitscans had with cars is dealt with, damage dealt to destructibles like barrels and cars are multiplied by four.
Cars and barrels have the same health and "on fire" health drain as they do in COD4.

Weapon Chart:
Weapon Chart:
MW2%20Weapon%20Chart.gif

More Fun Facts!
* All weapons have a maximum and minimum damage value. Weapons do their max damage up until a certain distance when the damage begins to decrease and eventually levels out at the min damage value. Silencers will cause this falloff to occur earlier, and thus do less damage at longer ranges.
* Some weapons don't experience any falloff, and maintain their max damage values at any range (LMG, Snipers). Equipping a silencer on these weapons will permanently drop the weapons damage to it's minimum damage, regardless of range, so you'll get the minimum damage no matter how close or far away you are.
* The only weapon that violates both of these rules is the UMP45, which always does it's max damage, regardless of distance or attachments. A silenced UMP45 at long range is just as powerful as an unsilenced UMP45 at close range.
* Different areas of the body still have their own damage multipliers, though there seems to be a slightly simplified model (no "neck" hit area, as this is now grouped together with the upper body / chest area). The damage multiplier for the head is still 1.4 or 1.5 like it was in COD4. Sniper Rifles still remain the only weapons to take full advantage of the body part multipliers, and use the same damage x multiplier system that was in COD4.
* Stopping Power still multiplies weapon damage by 1.4 on top of any other multipliers.
· In Core game modes you have 100 health points and in Hardcore you have 30.

Equipment

* Frag - Can throw a little further than Semtex, and can be primed, but does approx. half the damage (thus half the killing range) of the Semtex. Also, displays location icon and can be thrown back if nearby. Can't be canceled by switching weapons prior to throwing.
* Semtex - Doesn't throw as far as the Frag, but it sticks to whatever it touches, doesn't roll, does approx. twice the damage (thus twice the killing range), doesn't display location icon, and can't be thrown back. The Semtex can't be primed, but it explodes on short timer that starts the moment it leaves your hand. Can be canceled by switching weapons prior to throwing.
* Throwing Knife - Travels for several meters in a straight line before beginning to drop. Kills with a single hit anywhere on the body, and can hit after bouncing off other objects. Can be canceled by switching weapons prior to throwing.
* Tactical Insertion - Takes three seconds to lay down after pressing. Can be destroyed at a distance by shooting, etc.
* Blast Shield - Reduces explosive damage by approx. half. Will allow players to survive point-blank explosion of Frag or Grenade Launcher. Semtex, Claymore and C4 will still kill within a meter or so. Upon activating, will narrow your vision and remove the mini-map. Deactivation will restore the mini-map and normal vision. Activation / deactivation is fairly quick and can be done on the fly.
* Claymore - Explodes 1-1.5 seconds after tripping. Does approx. same damage as Semtex and C4. Can only set two at any time, if you set a third (with scavenger), the first one will explode.
* C4 - Does approx same damage as Semtex and Claymore. Can only set two at any time, if you set a third, the first one will explode. Can also be detonated by pressing the reload button twice rapidly.



Launchers

* The AT4-HS with Danger Close Pro is still unable to take down any air support vehicles in a single shot, other than the UAV/Counter-UAV.
* The Javelin can lock onto distant terrain and fire a missile that does explosive damage to a very large area, killing anything within line-of-sight. As powerful as this sounds, it can be challenging to use this capability effectively.



Miscellaneous

* Iron sights have little, if any, effect on shotgun spread / accuracy.
* Extended Mags do not provide any additional ammunition, it merely extends the round capacity of the weapon in question by half.



Differences Between COD4 and MW2

* Base weapon damage values in MW2 are on average very similar to COD4, with no substantial increase in MW2 over COD4.
* Weapons have much longer range in MW2, retaining their max damage for a much greater distance.
* Weapon "idle" (reticule sway) has been greatly reduced in MW2 and is virtually non-existent except for on scoped weapons such as Sniper, ACOG, or Thermal.
* Weapon "kick" (recoil) has been greatly reduced in MW2, particularly for assault rifles, and is the chief factor in affecting how much more deadly the weapons in MW2 are compared to COD4.
* Hip fire is much more accurate in MW2, and sub machine guns no long hold a significant advantage over other weapons in this area.
* As far as I can tell, hit detection and lag compensation in MW2 is improved over COD4, reducing the lag advantage for faster moving targets and allowing more rounds to make contact as intended instead of missing due to lag / poor netcode.
* All of the above factors make the weapons in MW2 much more deadly than in COD4.



Awesome video time! I know I've missed some, but they can always be added later.

    I don't know if it was confirmed but everyone is counting on end of April and same price.

    Same with PS3.

    Downloaded the map pack w/some free ms points from my birthday. Played Crash as the first map. Having only played CoD4 for like a week and a half, I didn't remember much of this map. Started out going 0-4 before camping a roof and getting 9 kills before the game ended.

    Not a bad start at all.

    Uh-oh. I think Scatman's red-ringed. "Hey guys, my Xbox is being fucking weird. Let me reboot and check."

    That was five minutes ago.

    Yes, yes it does.

    So, getting FMJ kills on the Intervention is pretty fucking hateful.

    Use glass and get one-shot kills. Estate and Underpants really work for it.

    Glad I'm not the only nerd that calls it that.

    But yeah, that's what I'm going to have to do. With the ARs and LMGs I didn't mind, because I could just "grind" it out (you kill enough dudes and X% will be penetration kills). With the M21, same thing. But with the bolt-action? Yeah, gonna have to camp some glass.

    What a terrible fucking game. Why would you ever use the Riot Shield; it's practically akin to sawing off your arms in terms of effectiveness. I had a guy literally jump straight at me and knife me in the skull.

    I, on the other hand, have gotten seven-kill streaks with it...and nearly topped the scoreboard a few times.

    But only in objective games, of course...Domination and Headquarters in particular.

    Decided to try some Free-For-All to work in challenges. First match was Silent FAL just seeking out all who opposed me leading me to first.

    Second match was....Rust. Which wasn't bad for FFA if two guys didn't start trash talking each other with the gay this and gay that bullshit. I was so fucking happy when my care package dropped an airstrike that ended the game and pushed me from 3rd to 1st and shut them both the fuck up.

    Man MP5K, marathon pro, CB pro and ninja pro is way too much fun on HCTDM. It's just kind of weird to force yourself to spam at people instead of bringing up the sights.

    I played a few games today with the M4A1 today. I had kinda forgotten how it feels to play with a gun that HELPS you kill mans, instead of trying to wrestle your aim away from them.

    I was sitting prone in front of B (next to the tank) on Invasion with a silenced RPD. I got a 12-kill streak when they kept running into my sights.

    Ah, cubicle walls. How I love thee. Four FMJ kills in one match (Highrise, Domination, shooting down the "long stretch" from C to A, then from A to C when things got turned around).

    I mastered the Vector earlier today with my final penetration kill being through the victim's teammate's dead body.

    I wasnt going to prestige again (currently on my third), but ive been playing more often lately as i get ready to finish up FFXIII, and im already back up to lvl 36. Im afraid that by the time new maps+double exp hit the PS3, i'll be back into prestige range really quickly. And if i go to 4, i have to go to 5 to get five-sided fistagon, then i have to go to 6 cuz the 5 prestige emblem is lame.

    Im never gonna be able to quit this game.

    I love those cube walls. RPD, grip and FMJ is pretty hilarious for mowing mans down in hardcore, since you only need to hit them with one bullet anywhere.

    Pretty much. As much as I want a buff to the shield, it still captures points like nobodies business, to say nothing of when you're working with a teammate.

    Why in the hell would Team Deathmatch Express drop me into a game with no scoring and that has a non-stop nuke countdown that's at about 144 minutes when I join and about 140 minutes when i leave twenty minutes later?

    If people want private matches then whatever but the whole reason I assume they have playlists is so people wouldn't have to deal with sorting through servers running retarded games.

    Hey all -

    I go by Postcognition and though none of you know me (yet), I'm a reasonably nice guy, and I would be grateful for your company while playing MW2 on the 360. I will be online most evenings (U.S.A. EST time zone), until the end of April or May. I sent my invite through the proper channels (it was accepted, thank you), and I just wanted to leave word here before I send lurker invites to anyone else. ;-)

    Other details: I'm new to the Xbox360 and the COD series (my last FPS was Quake 3 ); I get very irritated by pre-pubescent chatter; I'm halfway through my 2nd prestige, but apparently I'm pretty mediocre in comparison to my pub-server competition (which quickly and dramatically outpaced me since the 'stimulus package' was released). I know I have a lot to learn, but I do enjoy this game and I'd love to get better. Cheers in advance.

    Thanks for the games, it was touching to hear how pleased Groltag was when he got an AC-130. It sounded like it was Christmas morning for him.

    Highlight for the session: getting a long-distance headshot with the AUG on a guy climbing a ladder. Man, I love this thing.

    Also, :v: silenced M1014.

    I remember putting a silencer on that thing once for a FFA game. Firing all 4 shots at someone easily within the 1 hit kill range unsilenced. No hit markers. Why anyone would want to silence any shotgun at all is beyond me.

    Unless you're playing Hardcore why why why would you silence a shotgun

    Even on Hardcore, the G18s are a much better KILL ALL SHIT IN FRONT OF ME option. Hell, a single G18 is lethal to large groups on HC. Then there are akimbo raffikas, which have rapidly transcended past the 1887s in dograpist abusiveness.

    It's like the silencer and the enemy are magnetically repelling themselves, it's crazy.

    Also, apparantly the night vision goggles avatar item is free until Sunday, according to 402.

    The shield is so damn sensitive to the slightest difference in latency. I get knifed so easily while I'm looking right at the guy and get killed with by a SPAS from 10 feet, still looking straight at them. So annoying. I think the shield itself could be a little bit larger to cover the sides a bit better.
