Default the next good competitive fps game???

What should i go buy/wait for.
the last 2 activision games have been a fail.
wolfenstien was bad out of the box
mw2 will be bad out of the box for pc gamers.

the only thing i can think of playing is cs1.6, but its becoming a dead game.
(source takes no skill compared to 1.6)
any ideas?

COD4 with promod is the best latest game. Possibly Bad Company 2 but I couldn't really say, I doubt it (BC1 was simply too... unwieldy on xbox anyhow). There was a free to play game that was in beta, forget what the name is. It looked decent.

competition mod for leagues like Cevo and TGL it basically limits the game to certain weapons and removes perks to even out the side in S&D gameplay.

If you were thinking about Alliance of Valiant Arms i wouldn't get my hopes up,

The first time i played it i was killed 5 times in a row by hackers,Even though it was only a beta there was massive hacks brought out for it.

It had decent game play and graphics but if they don't get a good hack shield for it when they release the full version its going to fail hard

Borderlands isn't competitive multiplayer. MW2 will be the next big one although like you said you may not like it due to the no dedicated servers. BC2 might be semi-competitive when it's out for PC. There's COD5 that's already out, dunno if you're playing that or not. Operation Flash Point maybe? I dunno if anyone's playing that though. Thanks for bringing the lack of competitive multiplayer games to my attention by the way. RainbowSix is always competitive. But again dunno if anyone is still playing Vegas 1 or 2 and it's not a new game. I remember playing Raven Shield back in the day, now that was the shit.
