    MW3 Blackout April 20th to Protest State of Game

    GDN: Players to Enact Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Blackout Day on April 20th to Protest State of the Game - x360


    A movement is beginning to gain some small momentum in the Call of Duty community and has come to the attention of Gamers Daily News. That is MW3 Blackout (#MW3BlackOut and @MW3BlackOut on Twitter), a movement to darken the servers of Modern Warfare 3 by refusing to play the game on April 20th, 2012.


    Some Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 community members feel that it is the only way to get
    Activision and Infinity Ward to sit up and take notice of their grievances with what they perceive as an incomplete game and a non-caring developer and publisher.

    Will it work? Itís hard to say, but if there is a large single day drop in online play of Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, it could be enough for someone to notice. But it could take far more than that for action to be taken on the part of the companies.
    Hereís a video created by the organizers.




    The video states that it is a call to action for the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 community to not play April 20th, 2012.

    The crux of the problem is that some players see the lack of post-release fixes in Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 for some major issues, as Infinity Ward and Activision simply not caring about the gamers.
    Fixes that the organizers want to see implemented include:

    • Lag Compensation
    • Matchmaking options which include the ability to enable, disable local search and base search off the party leader when playing with friends.
    • Changes to the broken [sic] spawn system
    • Full-featured theater mode including volume controls in options
    • Tac insert removed from kill confirmed
    • More hardcore game modes
    • Better Elite playlist options
    • Objective stats on in-game scoreboards
    • Akimbo machine pistol nerf
    • Removal of any assault killstreaks from the support package
    • Removal of deathstreaks
    • Fix LAN settings for competitive events
    Itís a pretty long list of fixes to say the least. Others in the Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 community agree that the list is long, and yet believe that lag compensation would be a good place to start.
    Others completely disagree that not playing the game for a single day will have an impact. they state that the best way to show displeasure is to not buy the game.
    However, there are other options, for example, a class-action lawsuit citing breach of contract in that Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 is not in a totally playable state and does not live up to what the pre-release advertising stated it would be. That would be a drastic step, and an extremely long road. Boycotting any further content releases for the game as well as future games in the series is definitely another option and with amazing free to play games and indie game available it would be easy enough to find something else to play.

    Yeah I doubt that'll do anything. You do realize how f'd up MW2 is/was right? After so many complaints Infinity Ward did nothing. *sigh* this will be the same case.

    The series has been in this state constantly since the yearly release's started and Activision got their claws in to it.

    People tried to warn others about this one but they didn't listen so... they can only blame themselves really.

    Want the series to stop being shit like this? Stop jumping to buy it day one every year...

    Well for one Deathstreaks aren't coming out. So they can just forget about that. And Akimbo Machine Pistols have been nerfed. That was done in the last patch. Or maybe it wasn't nerfed enough for them. Sorry if you're still dying by them, It's because the person who killed you, was firing twice as many bullets. Figure it out, not that hard. Considering most people don't play HC anything. Doubt they'll add more HC game modes, just saying. Now I can agree with the tact insert being removed from Kill Confirmed. Not because of the game play. But it will dramatically reduce the amount of people who go and boost in that game mode. I also don't see them removing "assault kill streaks" out of the support package. Considering the only two things they have in common are UAV and Jugg. And it's different type of Jugg at that. The other stuff I can see maybe being added. The one thing on that entire list that really needs to be fixed. Is the spawning system though. it just sucks most of the time. But the be completely honest here. The spawning system in every CoD game sucked, so there ya go. Asking for a perfect spawn system in Call of Duty. Is like asking Bethesda to make a bug free game. it may happen. But don't hold your breath waiting.

    I wouldn't say releasing a patch over a year after MW2 came out (and after Blops was released) is doing nothing ... whether the patch worked or not.
