So I switched from core to hardcore way back in MW1. But in each release, I've juggled between the two modes depending on who I'm playing with. Some friends like core, others are hardcore only.
Now I'm more of a fan of hardcore (I wont give it the spiel of why, and end up in a flame war), but it seems the hardcore gamers are losing out. I've noticed when the nuketown game mode pops up, it's only core (I'd guess thats cos it would be difficult in hardcore mode, so I'll accept that one) But the new maps can only be played exclusively in core, and if us hardcore mode players want to play them, we either drop back down to core, or hope and prey they come up in rotation (if they do at all right now?)
Also theres the game modes.....there's some extremely fun modes in core that arent implemented into the hardcore game type, why do we only have 4 game types? I'd love to play a game or two of hardcore domination, or hardcore demolition!
Any other hardcore players out there feel let down a little?
