Default MW3 Will Equal Fail

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 won’t have dedicated servers, perks and kill streaks detailed | PC Gamer

Sadly, they won't add dedicated servers....

Who wants to spend money and resources to make a new game engine when the one from MW2 works fine? Not Activision apparently. MW3 looks pretty much the same as MW2...and surprise surprise..no changes to the basic multiplayer infrastructure.

AT this point, even Treyarch put more time into modding the MW2 engine

Sad thing is how well this game will sell due to all the fanboys who just eat it all up due to the name

I feel really bad. I mean I've waited for a GOOD CoD since the fourth one... So far, I can only say the first, the second, and the fourth were good. =[

The great studio of bungie..swallowed by Activision just to make that half assed COD: Elite stat tracking page.

How much do I want to bet that the code is just copied from the current Bungie Halo tracking engine

There must be some redeeming quality? If it was as bad as people made it out to be, would it not sell? I've never played CoD, so I'm unaware of how good/bad things used to be.

Here's my take on it,

The Battlefield series will always, always be better than CoD for multiplayer. It's just far superior in all arenas.

The CoD single player however is NOT as bad as everyone makes it out to be, I actually enjoy the Cod single player campaigns, they aren't bad at all when you want a break from multiplayer.

I will be buying Battlefield 3 for all my multiplayer as I have played them all since day 1. I will also buy MW3 for the campaign when it drops in price.

I can never see the logic in jumping on the hate band wagon just to deprive myself of playing 2 good games, one is just better than the other.

Cheers

Agreed, I'm fine with COD single player..but the MP gets boring real quick.

We need creativity, and something fresh.

Not evolution and rehash.

I havnt played a MP FPS since BF2, and even that felt pritty redundant within current gaming. I'll say 'no comment' on anything released since then.
