Default Re: Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to get “exceptional post-launch support”

I actually preferred the IWNet system with MW2 because I could actually play on the same team as my friends. Black ops dedicated server support was garbage, on ranked servers you had no control over team assignments and the server browser often didn't even function. Not to mention most of the servers I have a good ping to are "24/7 nuketown" crap.

I wanted to play MW2 again but I haven't been able to connect to any matches in months. Is the community for MW2 gone by now? I may just go back to playing Counterstrike.

I couldnt care less about exceptional post launch support even if robert bowling personally came over to my house to see me. MW3 is the most boring and stale COD game i have ever seen, i just dont see how some people can get so excited and over hyped over an expansion pack.

At least with a COD you know what you are getting. BF3 could be a huge mess wrapped in a shiny wrapper.

I'll buy both on PC, so it doesn't really matter.

So, to be clear, "exceptional post-launch support" just means they're going to release $15 map packs every month, right? That way they can milk the game (and series) for all it's worth?

Then again, this "elite" service claims to offer map packs for free (probably as long as you continue to subscribe), so this just means they will release one more patch than they did for MW2. So 2 patches total...

Yes and no...

CoD Elite will be used to have competitions etc hosted by IW as well as map packs being available for free to subscribers, i also imagine post launch support would mean continuous patches/fixes via cod elite to keep the game upto date.

Looking forward to MW3, as was said earlier we know what we are getting with CoD. Dedicated servers is just another step forward to making it a better game than blops or MW2.

I wonder how many people buy it just because BF3 isn't on steam.

No one says you have to buy them. How do we know BF3 isn't going it have purchasable DLC?

Some people only play COD for the SP part of the experience and wouldnt buy any DLC anyways.

exceptional post-launch support means railing you with the worst value in gaming, 4-5 reused washed up maps for $15 a pop, no thanks

Oh thanks! I was so sure I had to order both games, I was really upset.

At the moment I have neither pre-ordered. And I won't pre-order either one of them until I see something that I personally like. BF3 looks great, but I'm still not sold on competitive play for it, and I don't know anything about MW3, besides it will have "exceptional post-launch support" and dedicated servers.

And I have never purchased DLC for any COD game, and I don't see that changing anytime soon.
