Getting excited about unupdated cars in an upcoming racing sim sequel. Easily.

I'd love to see a robust community site for MW2. To go along with career stats and leaderboards, I'd like to see detailed stats across maps and gametypes. Heatmaps would be awesome too.

An upload feature would be awesome, but probably not within reason due to the insane amount of bandwidth that would be required for a userbase this size. Perhaps an in-game fileshare system a la Halo 3?

I know you're in the shadows somewhere here, fourzerotwo. ;D

Well that's what the twitter site is for. Suggestion for the community site although twitter imo is a shitty way to attempt to trade any useful information beyond a sentence.

Exactly. I was reading that and 90% of it had nothing to do with the community site at all.

Fortunately for us, fourzerotwo posts here.

Seriously, who the hell is ASKING for vehicles in CoD? Everyone I talk to on forums, and online HATES the vehicles in WaW. It just seems like they are doing it just because the last game had them.

Please IW, do NOT put vehicles in MP.

That is what I was afraid of after playing part 4 and realizing a sequel would come.

Not good, it will destroy the MP just like it did for World at War for me.
Even if they do have vehicles

A.) I have confidence they would balance them into the gameplay far better than Treyarch.
B.) Since they generally are good at providing playlist options a non vehicle playlist style seems very likely.

All I was expecting was co-op, so I'm happy. A resolution higher than 600p for consoles would be cool too.

*New Assault rifle: Diemeco C8 (Canadian forces M4 equivelant)
*Solider customization for each class (and each country)
Joint Task Force 2 REPRESENT. My Vegas 2 dude always rocks the CANPAT

In lieu of balancing the P90, it's probably a good idea to get rid of it.

That Brit rifle is cool too. Bullpup designs are nifty. Maybe we'll see the AUG?

Vehicles are fine in World at War, sometimes it just sucks that it takes 4-5 rockets to take one out. Imho they should go down with maybe 3 rockets or 2 satchels. I mean, if you're playing in a room with friends on your team and you are coordinated, then you can demolish a tank whoring team. But there are a lot of times when you're playing with strangers and find yourself being the only person actually trying to take out the 3 tanks that are murdering you on Seelow while your teammates are just running out dying. And in that situation it can take 4-5 deaths just to finish off 1 tank.

Thats a totally different situation though. I loved (most) of the vehicle sections in the singleplayer games. And the vehicles actually worked ok in CoD3. But the tanks in WaW are overpowered. They just have to much health. In BF1942 infantry wasn't utterly useless when trying to take out a tank. Even with a bazooka it takes like 3-4 direct hits to take one out, not to mention trying to take one out with grenades.

I dunno, I have faith in IW but the vehicles in WaW MP have really soured me on the idea.

Vehicles would mean a very big shift in map design. Vehicles would not fit on any COD4 maps, although I don't have the map pack.

The thing I hate about vehicles is that I always feel the need to be capable of killing anyone on the opposing team. As soon as you make it so I have to depend on someone else to kill something, everything falls apart. Just a recipe for frustrating deaths. Why I always had to run around as an Anti Tank in BF2.

glad to hear about co op. I'm with you guys though, fuck the vehicles.

I wish they would drop the fucking price on COD4 too. I'm kind of on the fence with Killzone's deadzone/acceleration thing and am considering re buying COD4 for the multiplayer.

Does it still have a strong community on PS3?

Yeah, if it's just you getting killed over and over, why would you want to save it? I mean, I have had some pretty hilarious deaths in CoD over the years but I can't really say I would go back and watch them over and over.
Exactly.

Unless you can save Killcams of you doing the the killing it's pretty stupid.

None of those maps would fit a vehicle either.

Vehicles are only in 4 of WaW's 14 maps. And they aren't in all modes so it's not like this means they ruin the game or anything.

Which is why honestly open speculation about some of this stuff is pretty useless imo without knowing if its true or the context of it.

A) All the 12 year old brats that play CoD4 will be pissed there's no more P90.
B) Plus fucking do not put vehicles in this multiplayer game. It ruined CoD: WaW.

It's actually a pretty cool gun. Just tone down the range a bit on it for balancing purposes imo.

Yup. Don't get me wrong, I used it a lot too. Next to the M16 it's probably the best gun in CoD4.

*Scorpion, P90, M21, R700, G3, G360 will not return
no sale, I was afraid this would happen, all M2 is going to be is an enhanced, and prettier version of MW2, I "wanted it to be "in the future" at least 100 years where they could have taken the modern guns of today and make them in to something we haven't seen before! If this is true, I loved the G3 my fav in MW. :(

People. This list is fake.

I mean; I can't get into how-much-if-any is true, how much is false, etc (there's a reason why companies "don't comment on rumors"... it would NEVER FUCKING END), but this list wasn't put together by anyone with any insider information. There's also some craziness that should red-flag this as "stuff I made up and wrote down" (like grass camo for snipers... that's straight out of CoD4 MP).

Anyhow. List is fakey-fake potshots, sounds like a boring fucking game, and isn't from someone who's seen what's running on our devkits here, ahthankyouverymuch.

lol. So they should make a game not for the millions and millons who bought the prior version but a difference audience.

Seems like you can easily go play Killzone 2 if that is what you want.

I come for the campaign and stay for the multiplayer, and since the SP will most likely be awesome, day 1 for me regardless of how the multi turns out

Yes!!!! Thank you, cause I was getting really mad if those were the only things they were changing. Now I look forward to the actual first details on the game.

Fuck, I really really hope this is made up, mainly for the whole including vehicles thing.

I don't want battlefield, and the vehicles in WaW were a terrible addition. This was the one thing I didn't want to see :/

Keep the G3, never put vehicles anywhere near MP and I'll buy two copies on principle.
