What I Wish They Would Do to MW3

COD2 was the very first fps I bought for a console. I previously played CS and was a hardcore PC FPS gamer thinking that no console game could ever sway me away from the feel of things on a PC. COD2 did just that and since that time I have played every iteration regardless of the ridiculously small amount of time I get to play on a weekly basis. I have also dabbled in the likes of Ghost Recon, R6 Vegas and various other shooters since that. I don't play a ton, but when I do I like to enjoy myself without having to worry about getting into a CTF/Dom/HQ lobby with a full fledged spawn trapping clan waiting to slaughter anyone who isn't as experienced. No, this is not a whining sesh, I just want to share some of the things that I think make other games better as far as the mechanics of game play are concerned. So yeah...here's the wishlist.

1. Selectable Spawn Points. Any Tom Clancy/PC game that I played always had this option so that when you die, you get to select from three or four pre-designated points on the map. It was invaluable in reaching a desired location with ease and avoiding waves of enemies flooding one side of the map

2. Re-spawn immunity. 5 seconds...that's all. How about giving me a chance to find some cover from a chopper gunner, or perhaps from some turd posted back at my spawn with a motion sensor. This is probably the one I'd wish for the most. Spawn trapping would be non existent and objective game modes would no longer suck to me.

3. Custom Matches. Why in the world there's not the ability for me to select which maps I want to play and don't want to play, who I want to play with or better yet for me to set up my own public room I will never understand. I'm talking full fledged ability to limit what weapons you want your room to use, what kill streaks if any, map rotation, game type, etc. It also would be really nice if when you set up this room for your friends and others that if you get a  particularly annoying player or one whom no one enjoys playing with you can vote to kick them. Simple thing that would make a huge difference.

4. Real Matchmaking. No, I don't want to play against 15th prestige if I'm only first prestige. Sorry. Unless you give me some benefit to doing so like significantly boosting my XP by playing under that big of a level and playing time gap. Or, better yet, make it selectable. That's certainly not hard.

 

I guess that's it. Thought I had more...maybe I do? Whatever, I'm getting a shower now.

    I'm with you on 1 and 2 ..... although I have to say there is probably some fault that I dont forsee.

     But number 3 ....... if you are talking ranked matches, I think its a bad idea.  They would be used way too much as boosting matches. You can do most of that stuff with private matches.

    Number 4 would be ok if you could choose .. personally I dont want to be limited to a certain level of player. I dont see growth in playing people the same level as myself ... ....

1- promotes team strategies that are worse than spawn camping

2- promotes camping, maybe 1 second, but you can't shoot while immune

3- someone's at the door, l8r

Peoples rank mean nothing, therefore no "Halo" matchmaking needed. The spawns are fine except for the Demo playlists. Pick your own spawn with the tact insert. No to Painkiller. Private matches allow everything you need (except friends). I dont want customizable pub lobbies, Id rather IW sink memory into other gameplay features like more frames per second, gore, better sounds/audio, better graphics, partially destructable environments, etc...JMHO.

Yeah, I forgot that part of 2 ......... no firing while immune .. you could only move.

    And 5 seconds maybe too long, but 1 second isnt enough .......... maybe 3 seconds.

OP, no spawn camping and selectable spawns in all TC games?  I played a gazillion hours of VEgas 1 and 2 and dont remember either of those features being available.  We used to demolish teams on Casino Vault back in the day by pinning them into either spawn.

tl;dr

RE: What I Wish They Would Do to MW3

make it not modern warfare

I know Vegas didn't have it, I remember GRAW having that feature. Vegas was awful with spawn trapping as well though

I want to see how many kills a player gets by kill streaks.  I want to see how good a player is without their kill streaks.  Show KD for match and remove KD ratios.  There will be more fun and less dashboarding.
