    So apparently MW3 is going to have an "elite" subscription option or some such nonsense that will "let people play with friends or opponents with similar skills."

    I ain't paying an extra $5-10 a month just so I can get yet another friendslist, clans, and a fancier K/D tracker.

    That much huh? I was tossing up the value (I'm a stats whore) but 5-10 per month isn't worth it.

    Also, this MW2 nostalgia is a total buzzkill. MW2 still sucks, assholes. And I need my gold guns.

    Also also, I love playing with Ducks and his cronies.

    Pretty much everyone who plays MW2, in my opinion:

    This reminds me; we used to tell people back in EverQuest (Oh, fuck yes, I played EverQuest) that you could bring up a Quest Log by hitting Control+X, which quits you back to the Character Selection screen. Man, that shit was gold. Back in the early days of online gaming, you could get people to fall for anything.

    For $4 a month I can PM you a list of stats if you need your fix.
    Said stats may or may not just be stuff I pull out of a Reader's Digest.

    I didn't mean $5-10 as in "that is what Activision says it'll cost," but rather in the context that I would be absolutely shocked if the Elite service wasn't at least $4.99 or $9.99 per month. Considering most MMO subscriptions are now $15/mo and XBL is what, $10/mo, there'd be no reason for Activision to go any lower than $4.99 for a game which many play more hours per day than on MMOs.

    I'm almost glad we have a separate MW3 thread. That way "abloobloo Activision stole mah surverz" can stay the fuck over there, and we can all [strike]hate on tubes and ghost here[/strike] be brosefs and share KDR stats.

    Money-grubbing Activision, charging me 500 mega-dollars for Reader's Digest stats. Robbery, I say, robbery.

    And ducks you have no idea how right you are about the MW2 demographic. I spent a whole hour in one lobby listening to a couple of 13 year olds talking:

    "Man, my tubes haven't been working this round. I haven't even got a double kill like you."

    "You get C."
    "No you get C, I'm on a 3 kill streak I only need 4 more."
    [This is long after we've basically lost the game.]

    "Oh man, they're using tubes too, coz we're doing it."

    "I'm gonna use Chopper Gunner."
    "Nah, this map's way better for the AC130."
    "No, Chopper Gunner."
    [Neither got either killstreak during the whole hour of play.]

    And in that lobby I discovered how important a single objective-based player is in a pubby match. I decided not to play the objective for a whole Dom play session - won maybe twice in two hours.

    Honestly, like I said before, I don't mind that "Elite" stuff as long as they don't start offering stuff that actively affects gameplay.

    I've seen it happen to too many online games where they start giving people who pay bonuses and the same thing always happens.

    Free players get annoyed because they cannot stand up to the gods who pay.

    They leave.

    Pay players feel cheated because they have no one to play against.

    They leave.

    etc.

    So, it's actually in their advantage not to do something like that.

    Currently, having the largest player base does exactly nothing for Activision (unless we all buy map packs, which, shame on all of you for doing so)

    Adding a subscription service, even if it only lasts a few months and kills their playerbase will make them more money than the current model.

    ...I don't know...

    I just don't think the "scorched earth" policy of game development is a smart one.

    Sure, you make money hand-over-fist but you also actively kill off your franchises.

    Rough game to rejoin me on, I was playing around with a OMA M16 and dispite the lack of stopping power it does a pretty damn good job as I smacked out my harriers/AC pretty quick in that game with all the randoms. I was going to sit on it and do it again and see if I could get two in one game but oh no someone had to go and shoot me in the back...twice. So I just said fuck it.

    EDIT:

    Scat I didn't have to much time on my hands, if I had of had a ton of spare time I would have filled the character limit. Besides take a look at the time I posted that, twas waiting for mah morning coffee to kick in so I could pound the porcelain before getting my day going.

    so I'm like only .20-.30 from matching my MW2 KDR to my Blops KDR.

    Doesn't help that I dropped down to a 1.50 in Blops over a span of a week of getting fucked over non-stop, but I'm finding my MW2 KDR is making rapid upward progress and I wouldn't be surprised if it matched or passed it soon.

    Is that bad?

    Thats only half the story, I also run around with commando pro and with dual shotguns.

    Actually the bulk of my KDR raises comes from the RPD Grip and M16 Holo which basically makes things drop very quickly.

    Ohmigod. I forgot how good it feels to Riot Shield on a good connection. Me and five buddies owned a lobby for ten straight games going half shield half normal. It was the funniest bestest thing ever.

    RS, USP w/ Tac Knife
    Blast Shield, Stun Grenades
    Marathon, Lightweight, Commando

    I call it...the Shield Witch! So many funny moments from those games. Just a sample:

    Dudes turn corner, see me, back away firing. I stun around the corner, switch to tac knife, charge and stab the bastards.

    Dude empties his clip on me. I switch to pistol, shoot him dead. 180 turn, switching to shield, take another whole clip, switch back to pistol, BAMBAMBAMBAM dead.

    A riot shield copycat gets into a standoff with me. It's fun for a bit, but I get bored and activate my win combo. Blast shield up, stun nade at feet, switch to tac knife, sprint round his shield, STAB dead.


    Some dudebro empties his AUG into me and I'm about to charge when a couple of his bros turn the corner and charge me back. Well, nothing for it. "FOR SPARTAAAAAA!" Switch to pistol, BAMBAMBAMBAMBAM dead, STAB dead, frag at my feet, SHIELDS UP. BOOM. "I LIVE!" And the AUG dude ran away, clearly in fear of my awesomeness.



    And the best and last thing we did? Charge and slaughter the whole bronemy team under shield cover over about 15 seconds to get to their care package so I could steal it. It was an EMP.

    Tibbly, if that doesn't deserve a gif on my behalf I don't know what does.

    Plus you can't hit my toes when you're stunned and I'm strafe-running at you with an evil glint in my eye.

    Oh, another fun thing to do with shield: right off the Highrise spawn run to the sniper window and look across the map (crouched and looking down and to the left of course). Laugh at the silly amount of time enemy snipers waste on trying to hit you.
