Any ideas wether you can create an emblem like Black ops? or is it more like MW2 with the pre-made logo's?

I prefer to call the weekend...CoD Con!

That won't go down well lol as you won't be able to dominate the game by sitting round corners with shotguns in such a "skilled" way to get the kill streaks and stop others getting them.

Oh great so not only as you progress do you get better weapons but the games makes the weapons you do have easier to use. as if the balance against new players wasn't steep enough in COD.

Actually kinda like that idea, though it will annoy people so much.

Alot of hardcore COD fanboys will be mad they hated people having choices in Black Ops.

For around £107 a year i should hope so (assuming US price estimates translate)
[quote user="lewgiffard"]

For as long as it takes to get the next COD out also shafting any one not on elite
[quote user="lewgiffard"]
  • Monthly content will be Maps, Spec Ops missions, guns plus more

I wonder if people are still going to call me mad when I point out this will mean super powered guns for elite players and only regular ones for normal people meaning elite can run riot easily

Wow might annoy MLG and gamebattles there lol

£35 a year from Activision you should pay £3 a day to play COD, I'll believe the price when I see it maybe £35 extra onto the COD MW3 cost for 1 year of elite included but not as a subscription model.

[/quote]No idea yet mate. I can't really see them making a backwards step in terms of features though...

@HobbleJP Ouch with the formatting dude!

There are 2 standout features for me. The kills don't reset after each death and the kill confirm feature.

Ummm no more camping hopefully.

not my formatting, its a forum glitch i have no control over.

I did wonder what the dog tag was for in the trailer, that sounds like a good idea in all honesty, should stop campers. Also the COD Elite is a decent price, they have offset the crapness of the trailer with some genuinly good idea's

[/quote]Yeah it does sound like they've listened to a lot of fan feedback, as well as bringing some new stuff to the table.

Ahh, you should've heard my bro balling like a baby when he learned of no more One Man Army (yeah, he's one of those!)!

If the hardened edition is the same price as the last 2 were(£70) then this one probably offers the best value for money out of the 3. I think £35 a year is a bit steep for 1 game but considering it is optional it isn't that bad.

Don't like the idea of streaks not resetting when you die, it will be all too easy to simply run the highest streaks that net you billions of kills(against awful players) or that weapons get easier to use if you use them more, it will simply promote 1 gun gameplay even more once people find out what guns(I'm guessing it will be assault rifles again) are clearly better than the others. I'm guessing idle sway has returned now though, that's a good thing.

No more last stand! Yay no more BS deaths by people who are firing their primary weapon at me whilst in the invincibility frames whilst falling into it, funny how 95% of my deaths to people who use last stand kill me with their primary weapon/knife lunge me(yeah it happens), not their pistol as they are meant to.


Can't wait to see all the throwing knife and quickscope montages people make for this.... 

Just seen the 4min online footage and of course the 3rd person cinema footage they used looks great its just a pity you won't see it in first person view.
