    Poor me. I'll just get my ass beat by a bunch of Brazilian gang members. D:

    Also, that ACR reloads a bit too fast for a gun that accurate and fast-firing.

    L4D2, they actually improved on it.

    The MP aspect is pretty awful most of the time, I flatout can't play it if I don't have freinds online. I get really tired of people just pre-spraying as they come around corners with machine guns. I get tired of being killed from some random direction with a 50 caliber with a silencer and non-existant heartbeat sensor. I get tired of seeing the Javelin used as nothing more than a mortar.

    It just all gets really stale and unfun pretty quickly.

    Oh noes! Not the heartbeat sensor that has a short range! Not the Javelin that can be blocked by standing under something! Not the guy who you should've impusively shot first!

    Sorry, but it sounds like skill based problems, not anything wrong with the MP. I do like L4D2, though. Buying them both is a good idea.

    Seems more like luck problems than skill problems to me..

    How does skill really impact any of the things you listed?

    Unless you enjoy a one-click-kill fragfest, tt takes a lot more effort to beat people who play like this and it's frustrating, since they don't have to try as hard as you do. Trying to play without exploiting overpowered weapons and\or using silly perks is something very hard since Call of Duty 2 (yes, I know that in CoD 2 there were no perks, it's not the point).

    Whatever happened to the FPS game, where weapons acted with some degree of realism?

    Realism? Never wanted that in an FPS. Sucks out the fun when you got guns that break your arms if you fire them standing up or without two hands, got to squat down to shoot with any semblance of accuracy, and more.

    And what FPS's are you talking about?

    Well, Call of Duty and Call of Duty: United Offensive had an accpetable level of realism. Weapons weren't godly-accurate, but on the other hand were easy enough to use not to frustrate the player. Most importantly, rifles were FAR superior to machine guns and sub-machine guns on longer range, something that has changed dramatically since Call of Duty 2. Back in the beginning of the franchise, just because you aimed at something it meant you'd hit it, unless it was a bolt-action rifle. There was *balance* and *diversity* in multiplayer and all did fine without perks and achievements whatnot. Now it's an e-penis contest.

    Every online game's an e-penis contest. "Check out my l33t gear guys." "I got his head with my fucking pistol, YEAH!" "I drove circles around your ass!" "Did you see that fucking pass?!"

    OT, you don't seem to understand how broken this game is.

    I'm guessing you haven't noticed the rampant javelin exploiting that makes the game more unplayable than going up against a team full of aimbotters.

    Nope. And besides, there's an easy way to avoid that.


    Is it that hard? I'm sure they'll patch that stuff because after all, they are a pretty good company and want to stop a horde of morons crying that the Javelin users destroyed them.

    You still don't get it. This exploit is being used EVERYWHERE, and with matchmaking, I can't exactly hop on my favorite server that has admins who swiftly ban exploiters.

    Primary : Doesn't matter
    Secondary : Javelin
    Explosive : Semtex
    Perks : Danger close, the rest don't matter.

    Pull out your javelin, hold middle mouse (or whatever key is bound to tossing grenades/semtex), and switch back to your javelin without throwing the semtex.

    Now whenever someone kills you, you're going to explode, killing everyone within ~20 feet of you.

    Are you really trying to say that people on the receiving end of this game-breaking exploit are "morons"? I'm one of the most tolerant people you'll see on this forum, but please; get the fuck out of here with that shit.

    Having IGN make tutorials about camping spots on various maps says something about the game, its target audience and the way people play it. A game where MP pretty much consists of spraying and/or camping has got to be pretty bad.

    yes, but as long as your e-peen is based on skill, that's ok. in MW2's MP, skill doesn't seem to play a very big role.

    I have hated playing unrealistic online FPS's since counter strike, and by the looks of it, they are just continuing down the same lane with each and every new game that comes out. It's the same shit in a different wrapping.

    I guess if you want a fairly realistic FPS, you should check out insurgency for hl2. It's a mod based on the iraqi/ afghan war.

    O RLY?
    Both groups are fucktards. The ones that use it and the ones that get supremely butthurt and curse the game for it.

    And I don't they thought people would be holding Semtex around with their Javelins . I don't blame them for this, and I'm sure it'll be patched.

    multiplayer in MW2 sux becouse:

    - heartbeat sensor >>> every1 without ninja
    - javelin hax
    - 70 lvl prestige hax (no bans for it so far, seems like there wont be
    any )
    - aimbot/wh without admins ... game destroyer ?
    - noobtubers spamming respawn points in snd
    - unbalanced weapons (acr> playing in hardcore mode usually, so its even worse there)
    -no ded/mods = 100+ ping's (laggy crap) etc. and only casual's feel its ok
    -HOST lagging sploit (use p2p program while having fastest connection...)
    - i got into a game with aimbot hax, leaved 3 times and 3 times reconnected to same game becouse iwnet saw it as fastest connection...meh ?
    -skill in mw2 = camp(or rush) , get couple kills and bomb other team, annihilating them completly
    -loads of other small things(like 3 kill case with ac130 killing entire enemy team, overpowered killstreaks (and people camping to get em)

    so ye, it is crap and wont live 6 more months without MAJOR patches

    I played untill 2x prestige, bored to death

    Well, there's only so much you can do with an FPS game, let alone its MP. Crysis had some potential, but they totally fucked up the MP.

    lol, keep telling yourself that. This game will stay popular until the next CoD comes out. All of the little butthurt PC players who could not stop whining over how they got shafted (god I love rubbing it in) nor any of the issues you listed will stop that.

    BTW, they are already aware of the Javelin glitch and working to fix it as we speak.

    Well, crappy FPS games maintaining popularity thanks to the brainless XBOX fanbase isn't new, it's been around since Halo2.
