Nice try IW

22 Jun

Yesterday Infinity Ward’s Fourzerotwo had this to say on his blog

Just uploaded two new playlists to Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer that allow you to play public matches with no Killstreaks in a variety of game modes. This update is currently available on Xbox Live, and will be coming to PC and Playstation 3 alongside the Resurgence Package DLC the week of July 6th. The exact details of each new playlist are below:

Barebones Pro:

Play Team Deathmatch and Free-for-All. All Killstreak rewards are disabled.

Players: 4-8

*Xbox LIVE Party Chat allowed

Objective Barebones Pro:

Play Domination, Demolition, HQ Pro, and Capture the Flag. All Killstreaks rewards are disabled.

Players: 8-12

*Xbox LIVE Party Chat allowed.

I guess he has a different definition of “barebones” than many of us. I’m not being ungrateful for the new playlists I’m saying did he listen to the players at all? Taking out the killstreak rewards does not equal barebones.

Removing killstreaks is only the tip of the iceberg when you’re talking about making a barebones playlist. Perks, attachments, and deathstreaks should be removed for a playlist to be deemed “barebones”. It should just be you and your gun.

It’s a nice attempt at getting back some players IW but alas you have failed once again at satisfying the masses. Too little too late.

    Ya. Its pretty messed up that they didnt listen to the community at all. But thats how IW rolls. They rarely listen to what we say. This “semi barebones” playlist is def a welcome addition. It actually got me to play for a bit yesterday after around 3 months or so of not playing. But they need to make it a true barebones playlist.

    I agree, a welcomed addition but not exactly what we were looking for. Killstreaks are defiantly the top of my list for annoyances in this game and I’m glad we can now play without them. I just hate that the community was short changed yet again. I’m not surprised though, just disappointed, again.
