    Y'all don't play team games? I'm playing HC KC/TDM/DOM and its a blast. Also, with a semi-smart team there are no spawn issues, really. As for the maps-it's IW, so they are all "funnel" maps meant to force battle in limited areas. Try thinking outside the box. On Arkaden, I avoid the top of the escalators in favor of flanking around-and can clean up if the enemy's attention is focused on the doors, for example.

    Here's a trick to use: Run towards a destination you've picked out in your head. Half way there, chuck a grenade 90 degrees from your path-then when you get to your destination, circle around towards where you chucked the grenade. Bet you find idio-um, targets there. :)

    after playing a lot over the last two double XP weekends, i'm getting the hate for the maps. Arkaden is shite, Dome is shite, Mission is shite, Village is shite, Carbon is mega-shite.

    Resistance is pretty shite. Underground's mediocre, Bakaara is shite. Bootleg's shite.

    Hardhat's shite too.

    can't comment on Downturn or Lockdown becuase i've not played them much, but they're not a lot of cop either.

    Recently did sp on bro's steam account (he didn't care about the game after getting it last xmas) and enjoyed way more than Black Ops. Still don't care about online though got other games to play.

    does anyone else find it annoying how poorly worded some of the challenges are?

    yesterday, the daily challenges i had were 'get UAV 3 times in a match' and 'counter the enemy UAV 3 times in a match'

    so, i swap my support chain stealth bomber to counter UAV and play a ground war DOM match and get 3 UAVs and 3 counter-UAVs.

    did the counter UAV challenge, but not the UAV one.

    i swap one of my assault chain rewards to UAV and play a match, get 3 UAVs and suddenly, i've done the Pathfinder challenge (get 3 UAVs in one match) but not the daily one.

    turns out, i had to get 3 assault UAVs in one match THREE TIMES to do the daily challenge.

    it'd be nice if they specified 'assault UAV' and do it 3 times.

    Ok I did try online and COD continues its rapid movement away from any sort of grounded base in realism but I have to admit I did find hardcore mode more enjoyable than softcore so might play the odd game now & again...Still hate the shitty IW network and what I call corner lag :vulcan:

    OWNAGE!

    i had an 8-streak and was kicking butt. P90/silencer/kick, Quickdraw/Sleight of Hand/Stalker with UAV/IMS/Precision Airstrike.

    may have been about the best game of MW3 i've had and my 2nd best game of any MW after the MW2 match where i got a Pave Low and then an AC130 in care packs on Domination and kicked major ass.

    PC finally got a date for getting Collection 1- May 8th. Good god damn, it took them long enough to decide that. Now if only we could get the Infection game type and Elite, we might finally be caught up with everyone else.

    I want to call PC the red-headed step-platform for this game, but that's an insult to red-headed stepchildren. The stepchildren don't get neglected anywhere near as much as PCs do. At least they're still publishing the games for PC, I suppose.

    the low-point for PC CoD fans though has to be getting completely ignored for CoD3. that was a complete insult.

    Nice score Calhoun.

    Last night we tried something different-we went to CORE KC and rocked an all-shotgun team. Its truly amazing how uncreative people are when messaging curses to you post-game. :)

    i still with the straight up classics "rusher cunt", "camper cunt" "fucking snipers" that kind of stuff. i never call anyone 'noob' because it's so ludicrous to call someone who's prestiged a newbie.

    i have, however, called people 'nob' instead.

    got accused of cheating today by some French wassock. like someone said, i was on 9-17, you REALLY think i'm cheating?! he wouldn't say HOW i was cheating, but claimed he was reporting me. i think the asswipe was just sore cuz i killed his camping ass twice. once with only a short burst on my P90.

    not like the shitstain who was in a match i was in yesterday who was clearly wallhacking and aimbotting since he was getting headshots on 99% of his kills and shooting through walls. i reported him though, as i've done with a couple of other aimbotters.

    When some people think you're cheating, they'll get really bent out of shape and they'll make sure you know it the entire match. A couple weeks ago, I was playing on dome. I was near the top of the tunnel and I saw that someone down inside the tunnel deployed a smoke grenade. I popped a couple rounds off into the smoke until I got a hit marker and then let it rip on that person, killing him. I then ran through the smoke and killed another guy standing on the other side. Now, I'm not sure if it was the first or second guy, but I really pissed one of those two off. He started going off about, "What the fuck, archeryguy? No smoke? Fucking cheater!". Dude wouldn't get off my back for 3 matches before he finally left. I'm not sure why he thought I didn't have any smoke on my screen, but it was enough for him to assume that I was cheating. And like you, captcalhoun, I wasn't having a very good match and I gave him the same response you did- "Hey, I'm gonna take the risk of being banned that comes with cheating, you'll be damn sure that I'm going get my money's worth and do better than this crappy score!"

    By contrast the low-point for console CoD fans was actually getting CoD3. It was fooking terrible! :lol:

    First trailer's out for BlOps2 - a bit more futuristic than I was expecting. All SP footage, nothing on MP or Co-op yet, which isn't surprising.

    I guess the trailer was kind of cool. I think the future crap might make for some entertaining multiplayer killstreak rewards. If there is any sense that still remains in the COD timeline though, Teryarch pooping over the not-so-distant future will put an end to it!

    ^On Xbox it's pretty convoluted. Don't know about PC. But on Xbox you have to go into your theater, load up the game, then record clips that total at most 30 seconds, then upload that clip to your online vault, then click the new clip in your online vault and select Render. Then it shows up in your COD Elite.

    Then again, does Elite even exist for PC users? You're probably better off getting something like Fraps (I imagine there are free alternatives) and just recording in that as you play your theater clip in MW3, and then upload to YouTube.

    Here's what the end result looks like from Xbox though. This is me taking my throwing knife training from All or Nothing mode into a regular Free for All:

    1 bullet, 2 headshots;

    It's a very clunky process. When you render it should go to your elite theatre and YT at the same time, but mine always shows up on YT waaaaay before it stumbles onto Elite.

    no, there's no Elite for PC. you can upload an entire match to your online vault, but once it's there, pffft. i dunno what you do with it...

    something that puzzles me...

    anyone use the SMAW and Blind Eye and NOT using a Stinger in ANY class?

    only, for some reason, when i've shot down some enemy air support with my SMAW, i'm getting credited in the challanges with Stinger kills and i'm not using the Stinger in any of my four classes!

    It wouldn't be the first bug. I forget which weapons, but I recall that one of the titles description and graphics referenced completely different weapons. I think they eventually fixed that one. I don't bother with the SMAW, because if I'm going to have a launcher I'm going to want to actually be able to shoot stuff down :lol:
