Pretty fun game, I'm lost only had 1 game of dom so far....I do believe we're gonna have to add both players codes like reflex. Other than that I think this game is gonna be alright after we all get used to it. Level 2 already :D

After a few matches I think I like BO better, the maps are good, I mentioned this in line while waiting for this game...."It's gonna turn into a campfest" Honestly hasn't been too bad but there are alot of places to hide and I can see this being a hackers paradise like reflex, so much stuff to climb on and who knows what they're gonna figure out. I dont know how to call in my uav yet, probably had 8 of them so far, care packages are no problem, just need to learn how to select which one I want to use. It's probably way to early to make judgements, it plays different, hit detection is different, it will just take a while to get used to. BO definately had more user friendly set ups and classes, along with ally and recent player stats, already have came across prestige players, they talk crap in the lobby, something strange is among us. Hope to see some on as I think we could roll in dom like usual. Only one dom match, don't remember the map, but I notice it's a long run between the flags, 2 of my 3 care packages had senty guns in them, only one kill and I took one out easy with my knife as well. Been using the UMP at the moment, seems to be my fav out of the default classes. LVL 4-5 now :cheers:

I think you wii'ers are in for a surprise, either way, good/bad depending on how you feel about this, made it to wave 5 on spec. ops solo. Those damn dogs still tear me up LOL Need some allies to run with, I've usually had 2 other clan groups on both sides when I play, which makes me think I missed something in the adding allys thing, but it's just like reflex...........curious to see what the MW2 players think about this game. Our detail isn't what I was expecting, it's good, I'm glad it's not more due to lag and frame rate issues....it's just gonna take a little time to get used to the difference, will back to tdm or dom at the moment, I'm scared to try anything else =))

Use the machine pistol, wow, what an unfair secondary but a BEAST!!! :-?

just watched Iconboys video, and during his game play he had two ally invites or what ever they were called, so, since I'm first on the list, doesn't that mean I don't have to add anyone =)) I'm not sure how it works for sure till I see some other codes. He seemed to really like the game, but he went 26-7 or something first match. Mentioned the lagg shooting (hit detection), a cross between reflex and BO, not as bad reflex but definately different than BO. I was at the end of the line at wal mart which I was surprised there was more than 5 people, turned out around 70, 90% xbox,9.7% ps3, only 2 wii'ers. A few cute college age girls also :devil: One was a ps3 player the other was the only other wii player. I'm nervous to look outside as less snow than we thought but it was coming down hard on the way home....will I work or play MW3 tomorrow.

I like that it's more lag shooting than pvp this time round, I think that is what made me hate Broken Ops so much. I like the look of Underground, it is a lot more colourful than any of the BlOps maps. The only thing I've heard that I'm not too sure about is that they seem to have gone back to CoD4 type maps, small/medium size but there aren't many camping spots. Mini camping is the way forward.

black powder

I think theres way more corners and buildings to camp in, you'd be surprised how much crap there is, buildings and alleys, with shit in the middle of roads to hide behind, 70% of my deaths were from behind. Good gameplay and interesting maps, haven't seen them all yet.

Ally system isn't as bad as I thought, just not as user friendly as BO, press 1 for allies, then toggle or d-pad for options, texting is included again. See Sykocat is on, he's one of can 14 friends and OFC. Still need some MP's to roll with, there are some tough SOB's playing and surprisingly Riot shield guys are a pain =)) Just used my support streaks, pretty sweet, it doesn't reset your killstreak rewards with this, of course it isn't the same killstreaks as you have in the assault. The MP5 is pretty good, but that damn machine pistol is evil, why would they have this in the game, I like it, but just overpowered. Had one match that was pretty laggy, not really any issues getting into games. TDM has the most players right now so I'm just playing that. You can send ally request through recent players section under allies. Up to level 12 at the moment. The customizable emblems and so on seem to be a waste of space in my opinion but it is something different. You can change them, though it's a pre-set selection and you unlock them through challenges or something similar. I like this game, I'm not as excited or drawn to it as I was when BO came out. But that might change when we can party up with MP's. SEE YOU ALL OUT THERE!!!!!! \m/

C4 works pretty good on the juggernaughts, you only get on C4 package so make it count. Been running private match with my one ally and all he does is use the riot shield, pretty annoying, but good to try different strategies against it. C4 seems to be pretty lethal, Scoob is gonna love this in the game =))

Just finished my first foray into MW3 multiplayer --

I agree with powder that there are many nooks and crannies for snipers -- got shot from behind plenty -- :-B

Will take awhile to get familiar with maps, I'm sure Kobbe will have it down before my old self... :-$

I'll probably as is my way finish the campaign before I'm a full time multiplayer... B-)

BirdDawg
11-08-2011, 08:04 PM
that was awesome...we rocked it! One thing I disagree with the game on is when it shows final stats, it doesn't show flag caps and defends on domination. I never have the best KDR but I'm usually up there on flag caps

11-08-2011, 08:08 PM
great to catch you guys out there for a few. Hit detection is off but some games it's better than others. I was sure last night when I was on played 1 dom match and it showed captures, maybe it was only in the baracks?

BirdDawg
11-08-2011, 08:30 PM

Good times with dadafett, bird dawg, scoob, kobe, cc vanilla and bburns, I was on a terror when we were opposite of CC in tdm. I'm finding dom a pain, riot shield is such a freakin noob class, maybe I'll set one up, or equip some C4 since I know that does work. finally got to call in some choppers tonight, 3-4 all together, things are looking up. Just can't see the riot shield being a fun way to play any mode, though they ran up all kinds of killstreaks that I haven't seen before with them, definately a CHALLENGE. You guys starting later are gonna have to go up against alot better guns, perk, & kill streak set ups, for sure glad I got mine when I did now...all the sudden riot shield was every where :cuss:

Okay! I'm in!
Got my copy last night but haven't had a chance to get on multi yet. I got a few rounds of Survival this morning to get used to the controls and make adjustments. First thing I noticed is how tough it is to move my aim around while in ADS and shooting. It seems the ads wants to stay right in the middle, so when the enemy moves, it's hard to stay on target. Perhaps i just need to fine tune the controls a bit. I may try the advanced preset to see how that works. I should be on all day tomorrow and will start adding Allies then...

Great, I'll look for you to show up, I haven't even tried the SP, only a couple spec ops for me so far. Right into multi player I was thrown, the first match I died backed out, and set the setting to default advanced, I used to try to adjust them manually but for my style of play it really doesn't matter, again machine pistols are way over powered IMO, and support is turning into a pretty sweet streak. Finally unlocked an assault rifle I like, I've ran ump or MP5 untill then, it is the CM something, like the 3-4 unlocked AR.

11-09-2011, 08:39 AM
just had a few with bburns and tinker, I sent cc vanilla a request and deleted to resend and now I can't find on my recent players list? Anyways we ran into more riot shield in tdm, if you run at them and jump over, you can spin and shoot, almost like sit and spin just with a different outcome. I took out the riot guy 3-4 times that match. Private match with one of us using a riot shield and try to find differernt ways to take them out, I know C4, pretty sure bouncin betties, I'm guessing claymores too. I haven't had any luck with nades on them yet, but jump and shoot seems to work if you don't get taken out by their team mates works as well. I'm still singing that lazy video song, I can't seem to shake it, starting to get annoying. Bird dawg is on but in spec ops, was gonna join but got to go get some crap done just incase I'm working today? If not I'll be back on & tearin it up out there. This game RULES =)) Having a few allies now to play with make it great, I see jumping has made a comeback at the start of the matches, dom is not a jumping match any more, it's all about capturing and holding. Haven't noticed to much difference in capping just 2 or 3 flags yet, the other team still comes from every where in this game...don't think it's the spawns, just so many different areas to flank and hide. Still think holding just 2 flags or the way to go, but when losing one flag I usually run to the flag the enemy holds and take it. Usually only after I get killed and re-spawn.

The above are old MP's, have never played or allied with them before other than having vanilla pending on waw and reflex, Scoob used to run CC, but MP at heart. Still got to play with MP first, but open spots need to be filled somehow other than randoms. Haven't seen l/h or any jump squaders out there, you know they're gonna be beast like usual.

johnboy
11-09-2011, 08:49 AM
I always find that only capturing 2 flags is the way to go. You just can't physically defend 3 flags, it also makes the other team spawn all over the place. If you want to finish the game off quickly then go for all the flags but only if you're completely dominating them or you think its what you need to do to pull out the win.

Had fun running with and against you BP. I can't get a good feel for any of the assault rifles, but I unlocked the one you were talking about this morning so I'm eager to try it out in a bit. I'll post my code if any of you care to add me, us Wii gamers are getting scarce out there. I'd rather run with allies than randoms if I don't have enough clan mates to fill out a side.

had some more good games with bird dawg, bburns, $$ nightmare, and tinker, we finally got into some hc tdm, I'm not too comfortable in that mode yet. We rolled them on the french map and then on the next map, they had spots that I have no idea where they were at, that guy with the LMG tore me up. I was ready to back out back into regular tdm. See you all later :cheers:

I saw where a few of them were at. They were camping like crazy. Not the greatest spots in the world to camp except for that one room on the top floor of the mall thing. One was just hanging out at the top of stairs waiting on headshots as we came up. They still barely won, and only had one guy on their team with +KDR, where we had 3 I think. I gotta say the UMP-45 with rapid fire on HC is a damn beast, and then to switch over to machine pistol....talk about rounds down range.

Besides I just got the 360 and MW2 is still brand new to me. Might stick it out here for a bit
Since i'm having a heck of a time making the switch from the point and shoot awesomeness of the wii, back to the old school dual thumbsticks, might be better to tarnish my MW2 record until I get the hang, instead of f'n up my MW3 rep right off the bat!

11-09-2011, 04:19 PM
I bought a PS3 in August and I still can't get the hang of MW2, I haven't played much, partly because the sniper rifles and toobs on that are......

FUCKING RIDICULOUS!

It looks as if 3 is more like reflex but still fast paced gameplay like 2. I won't be finding out for a few weeks either IBP, but that's down to lack of cash.

Playing again with bird dawg and scoob, I'm having major lag issues while playing any mode when I shoot the AR cm901, no issue when using smg or machine pistols, just unlocked the p-90, played dom and went 32-3, 3 choppers, 4 sentry guns, pretty easy game holding all 3 flags 90% of the time. The p-90 is gonna be a crowd favorite I believe :-ss

Great games with scoob, insin, l/h, js]joker this evening. Definately racking up killstreaks tonight with these guys on your team B-) That confirm kill match, I just stuck close to l/h chasing medals, worked really well, I'd drop sentry gun, run around the corner to catch up with l/h again and a couple more kills for a chopper. Definately a winning combination, it was a close match really, but did keep you on the edge of you seat. I really feel guilty using the P-90, but I lagg so bad using AR's. I really don't know what the difference is, it only is bad when I use them? A couple more days and the rest of you Brits will join us. Looking forward to law getting on line for a few. Honestly don't know what modes would work best for a new MW3 player, I'm guessing tdm, or dom...atleast with dom you can hold some flags, tdm will let you learn the maps though :-? I don't know if insin ever picked up my p-90 after I died or not, was kinda hoping he would to try it out, before unlocking it, but he's 20+ already, a few more games of tdm with his kdr and he'll unlock it at no time :party: Waited for bird dawg to come back and join in with more MP's. Also sent law some invites, you couldn't hide and get a game in tonight =))

BirdDawg
11-09-2011, 11:28 PM
I was using spec ops to learn some of the maps although you unlock new maps by leveling up so that can take a while. A few of our matches today was frustrating when I got killed by a camper and I couldn't figure out how to get back to the spot and find them again. Eventually I made it back to the spot and they were still camped out, but who knows how many more kills they got on my teammates before I got there to go "grizzly bear" on the camper. It's getting better with time. Tried teaming up for first time today on spec ops with bburns but we had so much lag we couldn't accomplish much. With that being said, we still got through more waves than I ever did solo so that tells me that teaming up for spec ops is an advantage, especially since it was bburns first time trying it.

11-09-2011, 11:32 PM
I only tried teaming up in spec ops once as well, and horrible lagg. Both had red dots, not sure why but it wasn't fun LOL Catch you out there, maybe law will make his presence felt tomorrow, another one would be simon too, don't know if he's getting the game or not yet...I hope so, we need more wii players to roll these teamed up opponents :devil: I think we're doing pretty damn good though for the mean while :devil:

I played a few more last night and found DP attack (ron paul 2012) in game and sent an request. Then I started another account to play on while this freezing issue is out there. It isn't fun though since all the other players are lvl 30+ and I started another profile. I'm anxious to get in some more games with insin for sure, tdm works well for at the moment.

Major Stains
11-10-2011, 03:02 PM
and I started another profile.
I think you've got at least 2 profiles in every title so far :))

I just tracked my game...it was last seen leaving Cardiff, Wales at 1.30pm.
So my guess is its sitting at the sorting office in Exeter, if I knew which one I could drive down there a take it :devil:

So, MW3 Wii profile issues, MW3 PS3 chat issues and BF3 PS3 chat issues. Think I'll be hanging fire until I know I have the cash and that any issues have been fixed before I decide what I'm getting. Back to pwning zombies on dead island and finishing off spec ops on MW2 for me then.

Good to catch dadafett and insin for a few, kept trying law and found him in a private match, I tried sniping the next match and went 3-37 or something, using the zapper of course, they weren't sniping but only got 1 sniping kill and the other 2 were with a pistol. I'd much rather play on-line than any other mode, might as well lvl up while on =))

That was great fun, alot of modes are useless without allies I notice, that match at that mall playing team defender was sweet, Kobbe picked up the juggernaut, definately a fast paced mode for sure, so far every mode is pretty fast paced =)) Good to see law out there in MP as well and the new guy :applause: Just had a couple with CJ, I sent out a bunch of invites on the other profile as well, my wii froze earlier in a lobby while I was trying to send a message, first time it froze but I was a little worried I was gonna lose my profile, but nope, still there :D

For sure good to get you on our team when we can, that wasn't my gold p-90, have yet to unlock it but it seems to be less laggy for me so it's a keeper for now. I was loving the AR cm901, but the fire rate is lagged lately. I usually run sleight of hand, hardline, steady aim....hardline is unfair IMO but I'd rather use it anyways, once you unlock pro, your assist count as a kill, you have to have 2 assist for a kill, and as a blind rusher I'll take what I can. Pretty fun games all around with all the brits today, stains, bird dawg and I were rolling a S&D, then held our own in HQ agains Mark-E, I sent him a request. OL C5'er, another one that is good to have on your team. Matchmaking does suck in this game and I'm getting use to the hit detection but LAGG is awful, Stains and the rest of the over there crew ran dots most of the time, stains managed to get to LVL 17 :party: Let the killing begin :devil:

Good to run into you guys today. Had a hard time trying to figure out how to accept an ally request. That was the third game I have played and I have to say I am a bit frustrated with it. So many times I sneak behind you guys and start unloading with the shottie, I run out of ammo, stop to reload and can never find you again and you guys have run off not knowing I was even there. I am really struggling with trying to get hit markers in this game. Havent had a chance to play much so maybe I will get used to figuring out where you are actually supposed to aim to get a kill, but it sure isnt at the enemy.

I'm getting used to it now, but it still changes from match to match. I can't imagine why they would take a step backwards in this catagory, the lagg seems a whole lot worse in this game than BO ever was, as it always was pretty smooth. I had moments in reflex, but that was connection issues on my end, this is there end I believe. When it works this game is a Blast, like all maps except for downfall, it's just too spread out and up, down, in, and out for any game mode IMO, I'm sure we'll figure out a sweet spot in there some where. WE'LL HOOK UP AND RUN SOME DOM OR SOMETHING GET SOME XP POINTS :D

Well. That was a baptism of fire.
Like a schoolboy, giddy with excitement. I put it on and started putting in f.c's. All of a sudden, theres MPs everywhere and I'm in game. Hadn't even set up my config. Finally did that and went back in for a beatdown.
As BP said, the servers were dealing the Brits one dot which meant I got torn a new 'un.
And also got completely confused in the lobby.
Sorry I bailed at one point, I wanted to try and get a local server, so I joined my bro. We got 2 bars, which was a bit better
I need to sit in a dark room now.
Thanks all :cheers:

Sup MP's!!!??? Been absent for some time now (here on the forums and BO's online)... :(( However, I am finally getting the hang of things in the new business venture (which has consumed all of my time for the last few months); Jumping head first into company finances, daily operations, managing employees, delivery routes, etc. All of which can be overwhelming to say the least. #:-s

Now that I am getting the hang of things, I hope to get back on board with you guys and MW3... starting now! :cheers:

Got into a Dom game with Iron this morning...the next game....Wii froze...lost everything...have to start all over. Not sure what level I was at, somewhere in the mid to upper twenties, maybe low thirties.

I'm gonna have to re-add everyone later tonight.

I knew it was gonna happen, so I'm not as upset as I should be, but this really sux. I also have to redo my controls, which is really aggravating trying to fine tune.

Crap you two, I was hoping that this issue had something to do with modded wii's are hackers were the only ones having this happen to, though I know of some that aren't and it happened to them as well. What a total load of ****! You guys need to drop off your code, I'll add you guys back, you don't need to do it again. I have both profiles above level 32 at the moment, and after iron mentioning pretty good games this morning I'm on, will definately be on the back up profile, I think I added all MP's only to it last night. We were in game yesterday with some OG guys playing team defender and they mentioned that alot of their players had this happen as well. So mine froze yesterday while in the lobby, nothing lost, but it surely sounds like it you have it happen in game you are toast :cuss:

Bring back memories of BO though, with the amount of time it was taking to join a game then getting kicked when the server migrated. Did we even manage to get a game with 5 of us on a side???

@ law and iron...I'm on now and your still on my ally list at the same levels, law is 29 and iron is 15. Don't know if you just delete your current profile or start another slot? That is total BS though, they had to play the game before release right? Kinda dumb to just dump it out for the public with out fixing. JS joker has called activision, and they know all about the issues and was told the issues are trying to be resolved, also he mentioned he was gonna call treyark as well. They do know that all these issues are out there, & whats up with the release date for australia being the 23rd??? Maybe this is when the patch is expected, I doubt it would take that long. I KNEW THE TITLES AND EMBLEMS ARE THE CAUSE =)) Why do we need that stuff in our version, I like it's different, but it just taking up dead space!!

I don't know if leaving it alone would do anything or not, every time mine has froze, even back in the reflex days you have to manually press and hold the power button for like 3-5 seconds, who knows though. Maybe some how you guys will get your stats back after the patch if you keep the profile rather than deleting it.

Just had some beast games with bird dawg and Thumper :cheers: No P90 even, just the ump, I'm gonna use it more as soon as I get the extended mags for it, I could use scavenger but sleight of hand is a must in these close gun fights, also wanting to try some more betties out, I used claymores as well. One note using either of those or C4 you lose your lethal nades :(( I was using them last night and I'd practice throwing them like a fris-bee, I even threw them at someone, can't remember who now, been using my other profile REDWPKLB[PM] but had to change it to normal after being in a tdm with another BO ally, not knowing it was me he didn't accept my request. I do like it though, maybe I'll just switch the mp to normal so atleast they'll know I'm MP while kicking their butt :devil: Good games everyone :cheers:

I, on the other hand, definitely sucked beyond belief! It will take some time to get used to the game, that's for sure. Nevertheless, reflecting on my first few hours of experience with MW3, that shiny new KDR has gone completely flat; needing some magical fix-a-flat to repair the damage I inflicted to it!!!... lol! So please, if anyone has any KDR fix-a-flat layin' around, help a brotha out... you will be greatly appreciated! lol! 8-} :p

I never have matches like those when I play solo, MP's rock \m/

I plugged my 2 piece broken BO headset in yesterday for a bit, I had no emblem by my name saying I was on, I could hear but could any one hear me, I think I was probably cursing as I drank quite abit yesterday and feel wonderful today. I might go try some campaign, or if there's a bunch of us on maybe private matches to learn tactics and goof off abit as everything is unlocked in private matches. I'd like to work on more juggerNUTZ tactics and riot shield tactics...riot shield c4 is great another run and jump turn and shoot in the back works well. I can't say I can stay off multi-player, but the losing data crap is a "major pain", that almost sounds familiar, can't figure out why?????? If you are host of the private match, do not rage quit =)) I still think your on-line for everything other than campaign, I think I saw on the cod forums where someone had their data corrupted playing spec ops too, so just a heads up. Don't know if it's true but very possible at the moment.

one more thing...I use hardline pro, I do believe this perk is broken. I think my chopper and sentry gun assist count as kills as it takes 2 assist for a kill, which is how it's supposed to be, but they need to fix it so it has to be your primary or secondary assist that only count. I'm not for sure that this happens but it might, I'll keep a closer watch, maybe call in my chopper and go hide, I don't think it does anything after you die, as I usually use assault package. If I can figure out what is going on one way or another I'll update.

@Iron & Law. Sorry to hear about your stats.
Although it would be nice to have a clean sheet so I would get rid of my -1000kdr L-)

I won't complain about the Brit lag, as Obi had the same and just pooped on the other team.
Saying that, I did string 2 good games together on a crap signal, so its not too bad. It always has to be a direct hit to take them down though!

Been a busy weekend, so not on as much as I'd like. And the 'hammer' will kill me if I admit to being tired after getting 8 hours kip in 2 days...bloody addictive games.

Thanks for all the games, thanks for carrying me through, sorry for any lag tk's.

I'm warming to this game, the maps are great. Glad I'm not on the other team to Black Powder...BEAST :devil:

Some fast past games tonight with LUM, bird dawg, busy signal, kobbe, we wound up against some tough competition, we won most I think, all down to the wire it seemed like. Man this is so much faster paced and of the other titles. Good hc tdm with dadafett, stains, iron, bird dawg, busy signal as well. Really had alot of good matches tonight. Glad I switched over to my main profile as Lum was on, I'll add you on the other account, I don't expect anyone to add my second profile as it's my choice to run two profiles till we get this matter resolved. Hopefully we'll have some luck on our sides till then. Scoob was in a few with dawg and kobbe earlier as well, that was a dom match and they had betties all over, I always got taken out with them. I through them down and nothing, I think I got one kill with it that match. In those later hctdm with bird dawg I was using the perk that lets you see the enemy explosives and nothing, still ran into them. You won't find me in hc solo unless S&D, got to be partied up with atleast one MP. We wound up against a couple old CC in hc, I can't remember their names but remember them from reflex and BO, we won pretty easily. Looking forward to tomorrow to get in some more games with you all. Of course I'll be off for the football game but will be back on or if it's bad I'll be on then too :cheers: :hug:

I was able to squeeze in one match last night on my new acct.

Got in a match of Kill Confirmed on Fallen (the neighborhood map with the swing-set!) using the UMP.45 preset. That load-out with that PP990 secondary is sweet! Went 14-9 and ran around watching my team mates camping in the houses and going negative KdR...but I did just enough on my own to get the win for our team. I'm thinking Kill Confirmed is my fav at the moment, but I haven't played the capture the flag type game yet, nor have I tried HC. I was hoping to learn the maps better before I jumped into HC, but I may scrap that plan due the the crappy hit detection.

I forgot to write down my new code but should have it hopefully tonight. Play time is limited right now due to sister-in-law is in town, staying at our house, so every day/night is already pre-planned for me!! My next days off will be Tuesday and Wednesday, so I will on all morning/noon.

good games with thumper, busy signal and lum tonight, can't remember if anyone else was in there or not. Had my best match tonight, I went 40?-3, it was at the waterfall map, we did end up in some lower level players in some games. Some better ones as well and we usually pulled out the win at the end, close fought matches all and all. Except for some of those tdms at that waterfall map, we rolled them hard. Busy lost his profile tonight, I added your new code after that tdm where you joined thumper and I, it says outgoing, just to need to accept I guess, if your in game usually I find and in the lobby you can highlight the name and then go to recent players to add, I jumped out quick to pick you up, not knowing I wasn't on your list yet...my badd. I don't have good games when I'm not with MP's :cheers: , HC is another monster all in it's own, not feeling it at the moment, but if that's what your playing, I'm in.

Thanks for all the hc games last night and apologies to El Capatan and one other for my friendly fire.

Better hit detection and lack of lag is so noticeable on HC. Finished up with a game of TDM with Stains and hit detection or lag was so bad - it took a full clip of an LMG to kill someone standing right beside me, we just danced around each other firing until I was lucky enough not to be the one to die. Yet the FMG9 as a secondary weapon got me a few instant kills in the same game.

Must, must learn these maps and must not kill my team.

To all my MPeeps. I have either sent you 800 blanks messages, or none at all!!! You tell me...

The lag was impossible again. And every time my Wii makes a funny noise, I keep thinking the worst :-ss

I think I sent alot of messages that didn't make it, I now found out that when you reply I think you hit the send button twice, as for compose I believe it's just once. Not really sure but just maybe. I almost always back out of a match, lobby only just incase I'm host. I was once so far when I backed out with an MP in my party as we lost thumper, it said host ended game, I thought oh' crap I just froze everyones wii. Bad luck with all the recent loss of profiles. Law and iron were in game and both lost theirs, busy was in game with 007 but 007 kept his profile. Maybe he was the host of that match? I don't know if any one here was in game with bird dawg when he lost his, it would be interesting to know? Untill this issue is fixed, no rage quiting please, in lobby ok, I hardly ever see who is host in game as there's not really anyone with full bars. I'll add you in a minute bird dawg, gonna eat. I did send 007 a message yesterday for his code and gave him busy's new signal. Not sure if you bird dawg were partied up with him last night when yours froze, if so, we'll have no way to catch him unless luck, and for luck I'd say not so much for some :(( Catch you out there, haven't seen insin back on yet either, wonder if his froze up the first couple days? :-?

Just got passed where my first acct got reset, I'm in the 30's and so far so good. The PP90M1 is awesome! It it worth putting away the UMP, this thing is a little beast! I've found Stalker and ADS'ing the whole time works really well and crucial for this gun.

Even better, I also unlocked the Type 95 AR (3 round burst) and have been anticipating this gun since the beginning, and let me tell you, it's every bit as bad ass as I was hoping it was gonna be! I'm in love with this gun!! I have RDS and Marksman Set up and just having a BLAST!!

The I.M.S. is the shit! This KS is one of the coolest additions to multiplayer...I've gotten a ton of kills with it so far. If you haven't tried it yet, I encourage you to give it a like three games worth. Set it up around a corner, just not directly in the open...an enemy runs by, it makes a high-pitched pop and..BAM! dead enemy! Just watching this thing operate is awesome! You see the munition fire up into the air about ten feet and it explodes out a pretty decent radius, the enemy hasn't seemed to have been able to run away from it..it just blasts them to bits! Another pretty cool thing is the Javeline..you only get one rocket, but try this thing out! Get into a sniper location somewhere and lock on near the action..when you fire it, it goes straight up into the sky and come down similar to the predator..
I got a double kill with it the third time I used it...If you ever see someone else use one, look up into the sky, you can watch this thing the whole way..it so awesome!!1

Well, if my acct resets, oh well..I'll be pissed again, but I'm still having fun just playing it at every level...

see ya out there!!

Probably have a little more time in torwards the end of the week :D 007 prestiged, pretty sweet title emblem there, I think I'm gonna jump at the first one. It will be hard not to keep going as I've maxed out the last two cod titles, but this one I might feel different.

Thanks for the games over the last week or so (BlackPwder, Busy, Dawg, Lum, OlGregg, and others...). This game is a lot of fun I think, as long as MP's are online playing as well. Just as BlackPwder said, I too shut it down if no one is online. Just not as motivational I guess... :cheers:

Hey thumper, tell your kid that I diddn't mean to bail on him during spec ops. It said I lost connection for 3 sec. or something, figured I'd just power down. He was beastin spec. ops. Definately carried my dead weight around for sure. Him and kobbe were the only ones on when I was, so atleast had a few allies to get in a few with. The day before played one match horribly and shut down after the match, keyword after the match, even if I was the host, which could have been, I'm not taking the chance to freeze others wii's. If no one's on I'm not on. Sure waiting for our version # to change, :pray: for an update sooner than later

My Wii froze today

But for some reason, I didn't lose my save data. What i did was hit Eject, rather than turn it off. I put the disk back in, it made a little noise, the screen flickered for a second, but It put me to the main menu and everything was fine.

sorry for the freeze, great about you keeping your profile. I don't know if I ever tried to eject the game when it froze as I'm ususally right back in after shutting down. This could be the best news out of this horrible issue to be heard yet. Thanks law for the input, I'm pretty much sticking to my second profile, soon to have 2 that are lvl 60+ See you out you there sometime. :cheers:

a quick ???...when you ejected the game did you then power off the wii, or just re-insert the game after it went to the main menu. I'm guessing not powering off is the KEY ACTION OF CHOICE?

I'm playing and getting my butt handed to me every match, no one is on except 007, and don't feel like joining his game since wasn't invited, so I switch to my PROFILE and bird dawg is on, so I switch back to blkpwdr2 and not on, so back to check and he's on or atleast according to the allies list. He's listed twice on both profiles, though BP2 has him listed as lvl 1? I call BS!!! =)) =)) Also on lockdown kill confirmed the match started and our team already had advanced UAV? Let the SH*T begin. I don't know how many patches in BO we got, I can only really think one, or two, all others had to do with double XP and everyones favorite nuketown 24/7 =)) One of those 2 patches had to do with the leaderboards as when you used to check them it would freeze your wii :cuss:

Almost shut it down tonight as I was solo, and then.............danbo, sheep dog, echo battery and thumper showed up in FORCE.....some awesome games MP's, it definately makes this game so much greater when teamed up. The best part was the last match and some guy joins and says
'oh crap, a clan, are they good, (must of checked the lobby) yeah, they're alright, we spanked them hard =)) My killstreaks are UAV always, every class, even in BO, I find it the most essential, I tried IMS again tonight, got a few kills, but sentry gun definately works for me better, and finally attack chopper. I used to use that and the pave but most of the time air space too crowded so went back to sentry gun. The last match I had a chopper waiting, it was good to see some MP's on, finally, I'm not sure what lvl I'm on my second account but thanks to these guys I'm guessing it's about 60, so now two profiles are that and above. I did alright with ACR tonight for a few matches, but always going back to the UMP or p90 at the moment. I doubt the hit detection will get fixed, it might be nice, but the quick scopers and so on will be a pain. I find it irritating but I don't have an answer for the snipers as in BO as well. The profile issue is a MUST. From waw to MW3, this is the best game IMO, followed by BO....I'd have to say waw and then reflex....I had great fun in reflex with MP but my connection ruined that game for me....waw played better for me. I just hope they get the profile issue solved, and we'll learn to deal with it as we did in reflex (hit detection) I notice it changes from host to host and gun to gun makes a difference. I don't think I'll have a full day tomorrow at work so hopefully get a few in with the brit KREW!!! :cheers:

I remember when my wii froze hard it always made a obnoxious whining sound really high pitched, and nothing works other than holding down the power button on the wii itself or un-plugging it. I've only had to shut down hard twice in MW3 with no issues, but no whinning sound yet. I did get into a match of something tonigh can't remember what but it put me in game and it was a black screen....I was thinking, OH' this is terrific, didn't even get a chance to make them rage quit :cuss: It came back after a couple minutes.

Rather than have to quit mid game and risk freezing anyones Wii's. I am just spending a few nights on the campaign.

When mine froze the second time, there was no noise at all, just a stuck screen. I jumped up and hit Eject and it came right out...so I'm not sure if there are two types of freezing...It did make some gargled high pitch after I reinserted the disk, but after that, everything seemed fine.

I shot down a Pave Low with two rockets from my Javeline this morning, and shot down a UAV with one shot yesterday. It does the same, it flies straight up and comes straight down, and it came straight down on top of the UAV..I got a ton of xp doing that..Next will be the AH-6!

Players are experiencing an issue commonly referred to as “lag shooting” where network lag will cause the player to have difficulty hitting an opponent.

Several players have reported their save data getting corrupted when the game freezes.

Did get sniped alot more today expecially in those matches with Obi. Be curious to see what he thought of the latest version....I didn't notice him having monster games either, I might have missed some, not the usual obi tonight on the battlefields when I was on, though I was struggling myslelf.

Wow man, I have been in MWR for too long. I jumped into my first MW3 game tonight and I'm getting bombarded left and right by turrets! GG @Xin-Loi (It's nice to play with you again buddy!) @SSDD and @Danbo. I missed one person and I apologize.

I'd forgotten that you have to tweak your control settings in this game and it was frustrating playing with that all night. I feel like the camera needs to be tweaked moving left and right, I'll figure it out eventually. I remember we used to have a big thread for MWR and found it here viewtopic.php?f=32&t=552 (http://teammp.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=552) Manually tweaking the settings didn't feel right .

We'll Xin-Loi and I hit that famous server lag on a Kill Confirmed match tonight, not fun and I hope they patch that up soon. Kill Confirmed is a wicked mode and I think it's going to be my favorite mode. It feels like a hyper TDM. Another niggling issue is that a couple of maps seem really dark. One reminded me of Courtyard in WaW and how dark some of the corners of that map were.

It's a good game and I'm glad I'm catching up with some old MPs and new ones. @Xin-Loi, you texted me and it took me forever to figure out how to send after replying, I still can't remember how I did it. It would be nice if there as a bluetooth Wii keyboard that you could use at the same time as the controller.

I have to learn to shoot again now since the patch, surely having a tough time re-adjusting. I did get juggernaught this morning using a support package, I made it 30 seconds and I died, no kills with it either. Of course I didn't know what to do or how to use a weapon with it. I noticed one 10th prestige player last night, this morning I was in a lobby with 6 all lvl 80 :cuss: Almost some sord of constant UAV for the enemies till the one guy left, I don't remember his name as it wasn't the same in the game as the lobby. This game is still great, back to the same thing, don't like playing with randoms AT ALL :((

Definitely a step backwards in my opinion....2 previous nights I was getting KDRs of 6 or 7. I was determined to hit a 2.0 average last night, but ended up slipping to 1.90 (had nothing to do with the bottle of scotch in my hand ;) :-$ ). Same happened on BO, had a 2.5 average.....1st patch.....1.7 average. Wife's out tonight, so gonna go for a second opinion shortly :D

That was SWEET B-) I'm not liking the patch what so ever, kdr from 1.91 to 1.6 quickly dropping expecially when I go against you LOL My wii froze in lobby while with you, bird dawg, austin, scoob....switched accounts and bird dawg is still lvl 1 not sure what the hell is up with this but I've deleted bird dawgs account and re added twice and still the same lvl 1??? And wasn't on-line but was on the other profile weird. Anyways great games will all MP's and allies today STAINS and OBI were in there. I find S&D is a pretty easy match to get into when partied up as well as solo, of course I like that mode, reg tdm has to be my favorite along with kill confirmed. On a side note I don't like that when you play mercanary the switch it up between tdm and kill confirmed, If i wanted to play one or the other I would have chosen it =))

Finally some good games with MP's! It really sucks how long it takes to get a match, though...

Looks like our British brethren had decent three bars the whole time and seems to be having fun! The only problem with private is no leveling, no xp..but oh well, fun trumps everything else, and that shit was fun! I guess that will be the only way to be able to satisfy all in the lobby...private match.

Log into your router and turn on UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), most routers have this option in the Administration tab.

The goal is to have an OPEN NAT in order to host Spec Ops games and get a wider selection of MP matches to join.

Also ensure that under your security options that Anonymous NAT Redirection is allowed and is not filtered. This may also be referred to as 'Filter InternetNAT Redirection' - in which case you want this disabled.

For more information on enabling UPnP on your router, visit your router manufacturer's website. A few of the most popular router web sites are listed below:

Everyone has to update to play MP, so don't know how it can be an older version of MW3, it's just a roll of the dice I guess. Austin ROCKED the red dot in tdm, I tried adjusting settings but had to go back to default advanced settings, I switched over to proffesional and it was crazy, maybe after a few drinks I'd like it but I'll stick to my default advanced settings. I must not have been host those last few games of tdm with austin as we rolled the other team miserably, that made the game fun again :devil: I like my wargasm title but just unlocked another that is pretty good called the mastodon, play entire match with a 5:1 kdr, I'm sure I had that before but just now unlocked it at lvl 78. Well back out to the killing field as the vikings are losing to the raiders :((

GG @Xin-Loi (It's nice to play with you again buddy!) @Xin-Loi, you texted me and it took me forever to figure out how to send after replying, I still can't remember how I did it. It would be nice if there as a bluetooth Wii keyboard that you could use at the same time as the controller.

You too Mutt! \m/ We've had some good matches! The online message system does suck... I hate the lag that's associated with composing messages (only happens when searching for a match...). Other than that, good times all around! :cheers:

I see what you mean with the lag. I sent you a couple of text messages tonight and it was lagging pretty bad. Gg's btw tonight. I had fun despited getting owned on Outpost and Mission. On Mission I froze when someone popped out of a corner and laid down a SAM turret and laid me out, lol. Bakaraa was my favorite match, it was tight. Arkaden I wasn't much good because that was the first time I played that map. Last night all of my matches were fine, tonight it was a different story. The Wii remote started freezing again. It happened to me intermittently throughout all of my matches. I hope to god Treyarch patches it ASAP. It's beyond frustrating playing a broken MP FPS. I'll give it another week and I'll see what happens. If it doesn't get fixed, there's no point in hanging onto this game.

I think I know what is going on, I'm hosting alot more

I have this same issue. I haven't rage quit but rather I suffer through the match and then back out after the match has ended. This is one reason why if I'm in a lobby where I am not host I tend to stay there even though MP's are sending me invites. Just want all of you to know I'm not being a dick and ignoring you but rather trying to beat the odds of me getting host in a new lobby. I'm not sure that this is something they can or will fix as the same thing happened the entire time I was playing Black Ops. Going forward I will roll the dice and jump in with you guys when you invite just to get some playtime in with all of you.

And for those of you wondering how I went from level 45 to 80 so fast I found myself in a hacked lobby and one kill bounced me to 80. I can't say as I'm mad about that really since I was half way to 80 when I lost my profile. I look at it as being where I should be if I hadn't lost my original profile.

Same thing happened to me - it just looks stupid on leaderboards, as I have 10x the overall score of people who've been playing for much, much longer than I have.

Great games, only a few were affected by host lag on my part.
Everytime I thought I had a stormer, there you were, 6 points ahead. We rocked it.

Thanks to Lum, Bird, Austin, Luv/Hate for the good times today. No idea it kept dropping out, I'm pretty sure I was host again, signal was ok, I didn't press anything and it blipped out!

Slowly figuring out the streaks etc

The first game I had with just me and Lum, I got 3 attack choppers and 4 care packages, and we came in the middle of the match. Can't complain about that at all. After that it wasn't so great anymore. Looking forward to hitting 50 (again) to get that ACR with Overkill perk

Best fun on MW3 tonight by far, started with Thumpers son, checking out spots on the snow map in a private match...then off to join L/H, joker, and this cal 619 guy that were partied up and we rocked pretty good, then with joker busy and myself destroying the demolition games, then off with busy, 007,hero sub for some more kill confirmed against cal 619 guy which usually isn't a good match. AND THEN, all hell broke lose with Sabatoge with Lum, ssdd, busy, sheep dog, thumper, emotions, cal 619, 007, it was absolutely CRAZY for 3-5 matches, I kept running into thumpers claymores =)) I started tonight first prestige lvl 4 and last I knew was above 20, only cause I unlocked the specialist package at lvl 20. Sorry to have missed stains and bird dawg or maybe I should say sorry you missed US cause it was fun, even when I hosted and other bad games except for the one kill confirmed at village with busy and his allies, where it was rough against the enemy, though, they stuck together pretty good and destroyed us for the most part, definately a learning experiance. I prestiged this morning and took a class with me, I didn't know it was gonna be available till the next prestige but nope, I got my p90 at lvl 1. If they were all like tonight, I'd consider quiting my job and move me and the kid in with the grandparents =)) =)) =)) :cheers:

It's been fun playing with you all. I wasn't sure if the mic was working or not since I just got it and put an extension on. I was too scared to ask if you all could hear me; then later I said "shit" and thought "shit they can hear me". =)) Btw it's much quieter on the Wii comms than the PS3 which is quite nice. And nobody even told me to make them a "samwich"! :applause: :x

And I loved the last sab match when I finally got the satisfying plant and killed three of you all with the bomb detonation. Sorry guys, but that put a smile on my face. :D

Thanks to BirdDawg and Austin for the gg's. Hope tdm was ok? HC tdm is normally my fav, but I read someone didn't like it and I couldn't think who. Plus its a numbers game getting into a lobby.
I did invite 007 to join us.
Also I have a few ofc in my list, so maybe a casual clan battle could be arranged?

Really enjoying the campaign, nearly half way through. But not as fun as running with MPeeps. :cheers:

I would be up for a clan battle. Trying to set up a time for a bunch of people to be on would be fun, though I'm sure tough with all the other commitments we have. We had some great games last night, sorry I had to run but since I'm hosting Thanksgiving, I had to get my turkey in the brine. I will be on later at some point today I'm sure.

Update - Just got home and hopped online for a few quick matches, Kobbe was only one on but tons of people playing. If anyone is around tonight, should be easy to find matches. Think there was close to 4k people in TDM, 800 each in Dom/KC. Didn't really look at the other ones nor did I check HC.

Why is there a cellphone ringing in the game? What does it mean? Why is there a red rectangle sometimes on the map? I think Domination is my favorite mode now. I noticed Blackpowder you like Sabotage. I don't know how to play that, I'll look it up on Google. I'll be back on tomorrow night with beer in hand. Hopefully I'll be able to shoot straighter.

a full night of MP games last night, MP's on all sides again, pretty tough games. I usually play sab if lum is on and if we have a full party...it can be a fun game and really quick at times. Been running some demolition with L/H and some JS guys, pretty good matches, some were around 16 minutes, non stop killing and dying. I usually prefer tdm or kill confirmed in MW3 but do and will play every mode, expecially S&D. Team defender is good XP if you hold the flag but randoms are tough to play with in this mode. I can't get into HC much as I rely on my radar almost exclusively. I will play hc, I think I was hosting some of those games a week ago and just can't play when I'm host. I'm jumping on now again for a few, hopefully will catch some MP carnage as if not, I'll just shut down and have to go do something productive =))

GG's with bird dawg, stains. obi, insin for a match or two, scooby, old gregg was opposite and saw cc hanshott drop in on our london tdm, I was hoping to catch him in the recent players but no such luck. I'll be on late again probably as I'm craving some more madness of MW3, I always feel bad when other MP's are on the enemy team, scoob and bird dawg were against myself, obi, stains, insin and 1 random and it was 5 vs 2 for most the match and when ever someone joined they left =)) Sorry guys. It's great to see so many MP's on, but what do you do when there's 6, or more ???? I know I'd rather play against MP's than with randoms all together, as in those later dom matches last night, I jumped out to try to get on L/H team, it worked and a win, the JS, is Jump squad all lethel opponents and usually winning, is a group L/H started in BO and it's got quite a reputation as being beast and they snipe very good and I can't touch the snipers in any of these games. I was trying to get a private match going last night and hexor and austin left so back to MP games, again today I was gonna try some more private matches and invite other allies, I was probably gonna do some ffa so no one got left except for the brits who would suffer signal for sure.( just to equal the brits of course ) I always try to give you over there the party host in hopes that you get more than the red dot signals. Shall return after a bit to try to get moab again, I got to 15 I think on carbon, but host quit and lost that one. I really miss my attack streaks when running specialist. UAV is a must, even if we all run it, we have constant uav for the match, they can bitch and whine but they can run assasin to counter it. UAV = WIN. MP'S \m/

As a side note, I've also gone other console and have come back to the Wii. It's for me, and I don't think I'll stray ever again. The quality of the folks you play with (you) and the intensity of the match-ups can't beat.

GG's Birddawg, Thumper and Hexor.Same BS tonight with being stuck for a long time at setting up game... before the match starts. I had to reset the Wii twice again and couldn't join you guys. I wasn't ignoring you guys. I had enough of it and jumped into FFA to try out the P90M1. I like it a lot more than the M16A4 in MW3, I loved that gun in MWR. It feels like they toned the gun down a little. Still waiting to unlock the Type 95.

I really hope Treyarch fixes this sh*t soon. Between the match making, remotes freezing and tonight I was on Arkaden and at one point I thought there was smoke on the pavement, but the map lost it's textures. It sucks not being able to go into matches with fellow MP's. That's what makes CoD fun. If this isn't fixed by x-mas, I might buy a copy of BO or go back to MWR.

I just got the Type 95, mobility is slower, but you can take someone down in one burst if your aim is good. The one thing I like about the PP90M1 is that you can anticipate where your enemy is going to be and spray that area. Just waiting to get some decent red dot site reticules for the Type 95.

The one thing I like about the PP90M1 is that you can anticipate where your enemy is going to be and spray that area. Just waiting to get some decent red dot site reticules for the Type 95.
I noticed you prestiged, what did you carry over with you? See ya next time buddy!


Those two guns you mentioned are absolute beasts!
I haven't found a better SMG than the pp90M1(although I haven't had a lot of time with the MP7 yet, haven't unlocked it yet, and only picked it up a couple of times.). I do recommend Stalker with SMG's, because the added speed of strafing is huge when it comes to head to head CQC, I have a Silencer and the Range proficiency (Kick not needed due to the default low recoil, and Rapid-fire is a waste on SMG's, imo) on mine, Iron sites, and it gets a lot of kills while keeping me off the mini-map.

The Type 95 is really cool, too! A lot of people say it needs nerfed because they can't or won't try a burst-fire and they get killed by those who do (like me!) I can't figure why it's okay to spray the autos to get a kill, but those that want to challenge themselves with burst and semi get called "noobs" using an "OP" weapon. It's great at close to medium range, but still needs two bursts at range. Hmmm, go figure.. I have Red Dot and I'm still messing with the Proficiency, right now I think I have Impact. I do recommend Marksman as your third perk. Enemies light up like a X-mas tree across the map and I get a lot of hit markers using it (use Hardline Pro and those hit markers become assists and two assists becomes a Kill!).
I have been loving this Mk-14, too. This is two shots and you're dead! I have a Silencer and Kick on it right now and it is as great as I was hoping... Again, Marksman on this beast!

That's a good idea! I'll take kick off and I'll give the silencer a try and see if I can get used to iron sights instead of a red dot site. The M16A4 was my gun on MWR with it's burst-fire. I loved that gun but I could take someone down with 1 or 2 bursts. But it feels like it's been drastically toned down on MW3. You still have to be good at aiming with the burst fire assault rifles IMO. Their not spray and pray like the PP90M1. I can see how people say they are OP, but I'm 30 levels I was lucky to break 7 or 8 kills per match and now I'm getting 17 or over 20.


I think I'm going to stick with SMG because it has served me well. I can spray in the general direction of the area that I anticipate the player to move into and get them. It's also more mobile than the Type-95, I found I was moving much slower. Marskman is awesome, I can't tell you how many longshots I've gotten and I like that you can see people in the far dark corners of the map. They get highlighted and I'll get them bu shooting at their tag. Stalker is something I was using earlier but now that you mention it, it sounds like a good idea with SMG. I was getting less kills last night when I switched over to the Type-95 but I think it's because I have to get a feel for this gun. For now though I'm sticking with the PP90M1.

Sorry to Black powder and Austin for bailing earlier. Another family drama, and you'd both gone on my return.

I then had a great half hour with BusySignal, that summed up this game for me.
One minute the pair of us were destroying the field by a country mile, the next we are getting torn apart by some fool called ganja with a permanent UAV and a rapid P90. Go figure.

Don't know if you could hear me Stains but I had lots of choice words for that guy. Sorry I bugged out on the HC match I have a horrible time of it when I am host which is more often than not. I was running at about 1.70 KDR pre-patch and now post-patch it's down to 1.00. I seem to get host 99% of the time after the patch and when that happens it is lag central with the screen jumping all over the place. Most of the people that are playing with me love it when I'm host however it sucks balls for me.

Can't wait till 3rd week of Dec when I will have 3 weeks off to do nothing but prestige at that point

Best run of games in my 2 days of MW3....unstoppable, you all should have been there later cause it was hard to stay positive if lucky. Good games with you and busy, along with the hero guys. Later was myself, ssdd, mutt, emotions, reb, we did alright, then found ourselves up against the CUZ clan and got whipped, good challenge either way, that last match was just brutal. I still don't know where the hero guys were seeing I was 111 or something in flag holding time in the barracks section, it's called team defender and if we got that flag it's like double XP, love that mode as I'm prestiging again when I can. Those were some great team defenders earlier bird dawg, I wasn't expecting those lobsided games, but great for us. I think we play alot alike...kills are good, but objective is better ;)

I agree 150% as mutt, ssdd, and emotions saw tonight when I rage quited on 3 matches in a row and of course I was host of them all. I love playing with you and hero sob cause between the 3 of us it's usually you or him =)) Just jokin man, I will usually rage as when I host usually we get hammered all around and the other team is 19-2 or worse. I see my router data says on-line gaming-NO, I think a new router might help but my ISP is up 3 from the 1.5 in BO and satellite which is not recommended for reflex. I don't notice any differance in the 3 from 1.5 other than host duties which is a fail. I got to say it sucks, but unfair if it was like reflex and if you hosted you always won, it was such a difference when hosting in reflex after the upgrade to 1.5, a definate advantage, as in BO and MW3 it is a CURSE to be host, so if rage quit and it says host ended game, just join back up and I'll give someone else the party host, which is why I switch it to somebody else so often. As bird dawg mentioned the other day, "why do you always make me host" I always throw it to the lower lvl MP's and or the brits as they always get stuck with red dots. I'll play any mode with anyone, but if invite and then switch to the over the pond group or a lower lvl ally, it's for support to help them try to get a game they feel comfortable in and a better signal. GG's al around tonight....THOSE TEAM DEFENDERS WERE EPIC VICTORIES with alot of XP :devil:

Here is s a n00b question. What are you supposed to do with the flag after you grab it in Team Defender? Got introduced to it by Blackpowder tonight and it was the most exciting match I've had yet. I had no clue on what to do when I grabbed the flag. Are you supposed to bring it back somewhere? GG's Emotions, SSDD, Black Powder and REB. Sorry about the matchmaking when I was hosting. I mean when got out of TDM and switched to Domination and it was still taking forever. For whateve reason we could not get inot a match even if our lives depended on it. Brutal match with that clan. They all had mics and hiding under stair wells and around corners on a map I cankt remember the name of. Still had fun with all of ya'.

you highlight the member of your party and hit the A button and it has the option to make leader...as for t defender, it's just hold the flag for as long as possible, no real spots to go to. I find myself going to a room or a spot in the map and hoping team mates follow, as I try to set up a claymore and ISP devices on either entrance, even if the ISP kills me I try to stand next to it so the enemy will be killed when trying to capture the flag as well. It's double XP when your team is holding the flag and you kill enemies so it's a fast way to level up. It is a fast paced mode for sure. Bird dawg and thumper and kobbe had some great games the other day too. Just rolled them, ISP's choppers, and stayed in a corner of the map on one map. Definatley a highlight from the weekend. Just hold that flag......OUTPOST is my least favorite map as the glitchers are horrible there, second is downturn (the american map) it is just a crappy lay out, as for my favorite maps has to go to outpost and downturn, not really, village is usually pretty good to me and dome, resistance, london depending on game type, sea town, I guess all of them other then outpost and downturn =))

I think there was someone hiding inside the tanker truck when you turn left out of the hanger - bullets seemed to be coming out from the side of the tanker or alternatively I was getting killed and was just confused by bullets flying everywhere.

I hate that Outpost glitch...remember the rock on Cliffside? Fucking team mates spending the entire match trying to jump into it. If I see a team mate trying to jump into it, I get next to him and fire my gun, mark the mini map for the enemy :devil:

If its the map I'm thinking of he wasn't in the tanker but on the other side of the fence from the tanker. You can get out of bounds on that map as I saw someone there the other day.

There are places that are better to go than others. I am slowly figuring this out through trial and error as well as watching the other team. We had a few matches the other night where when the other team capped the flag, they stayed in the same spot cuz it was most advantageous. If I cap it in that spot, I usually try to make a run around the map and come back to it, hoping my teammates will stay there and catch anyone who wants to venture into that area without the chance of me dying while holding the flag. However, the flag carrier is shown on the enemies map as well so it doesn't always work out that way.

Team Defender! It was a quick one for me tonight. I wanted to stay on longer but wifey had a bunch of shows to watch on the PVR.GG's Blackpowder, Thumper and Birddawg. I know I'm missing a couple of people. Blackpowder you backed out twice on my favorite Team Defender map. Dome! I don't normally like that map, but it's great for TD. I noticed the update tonight fixed the text lag and the party match making. I'm not sure what else. The christmas n00bs won't know what we've had to put up with since launch.

Either we just got caught in some bad (tough) matches or I just couldn't play tonight. Still had fun, and enjoy any time I get to play with a group of MPs.

12-01-2011, 01:23 AM
GG's all, we definatley were kickin some butt early in the evening, and then it was tough. I prestiged again, when you to your prestige you go to barraks then to prestige shop, first you prestige of course, theres one that lets you take a class with you for all other prestiges it is a must, the second time I wasn't sure what I was getting, but my take a gun with me was still there, so I took 2 hrs double XP. I would definately say it's worth it to prestige since your not losing your favorite weapon, proficiencies are gone along with you lethals and what not but atleast you get to take the gun your confortable with, I chose p90 but really liking the ppm901 as the last prestige. I didn't think I was going to pretige for MW3 but with the options it gives you it's really hard not to. But then I maxed out reflex and BO also. Waw not even to the first yet. Team defender has to be my favorite as for leveling up, when I max out prestige I'm sure it will be kill confirmed or tdm. S&D is always there but haven't really played to much of it in this game yet. I'll definately prestige again and again now. Those later matches after the devil vs MP matches went down hill, atleast we took one of them. Pretty good matches even though it was rough. I think they used tactical insertion since when we killed the flag carrier they were all there and I noticed at the start of the match (bakarra) they were all at the spawn again and again till they got to the other side of the map which is the best place for team defender. I always seem to be the one that gets killed first. Anyways another day of work this week and have a 3 day weekend I think, this should be the norm if everything works out so I'll be on alot I'm guessing. GG's thumper, bdawg, mutt, sheep dog, hexor, now I can't remember if there was anyone else on with us or not.

@bird dawg, no issue when I joined you after being booted off and picked you up with hero and 007, I saw a full lobby so I left. I'm glad you joined back up, as I was hoping to hit prestige as I failed last night on making it. Just give a bit, don't know if you got to get your gun class yet, but if you chose to use your token in prestige shop it should be there, and for all the next prestiges and you can still choose 2 hrs of double XP and with t defender it is amazing how fast you level up.

Yeah I took P90 with me and got to use it once I think before I had to go last night. I will have to take some time when I'm on again (Friday) to get my classes straight, though I may jump on tonight to do it but won't have time to play. It seems I run out of time usually between matches, especially now since I have to start over again with redoing all my custom classes.

12-01-2011, 08:19 AM
I will most likely prestige. I should be there pretty soon, I'm almost to eighty. I will most likely take a gun with me, and that gun is the Mk-14. This is my rifle, there are many like it, but this one is mine... I will not be able to wait until lvl 68 or whatever it is to get my killing machine back! I have it silenced with Marksman and it's been a lot of fun! Enemies don't even know what hit them! Two-shot kills FTW!

I was contemplating taking the MP7. This, to me is the best smg. It has absolutely no recoil, so you don't need Kick. I have been able to kill from across the map with this little gun. The iron sites are perfect, as is the pp90m1, but the MP7 rof blows away the pp. The only thing the P90 has going for it is the large magazine, but Ex mags and Scavenger (which I would use anyways for an smg class) negates the need for the large default mag.

I've been playing a lot of TDM lately and just been racking up the kills. The objective-based games aren't as fun during the day when there are no other MP's on during that time.

Hopefully this second patch will help with us trying to get a game at night in a timely manner............see you out there (may get a chance to get on tonight)

:applause: :applause: :applause: Kudos to Treyarch for listening to the Wii community and fixing the issues that's plagued us in MP. Here's the list of fixes from the last update that came out yesterday, 11/30. I don't see anything about improving match making with a party but I did notice last night it was much faster than before when Blackpowder was hosting. Maybe this is the fix "Session Host Migration Fixes" That was frustrating as hell and difficult to get matches going with fellow MPs. But we all know that. @Blackpowder Host lag is fixed!

1/30/11 Update:
Major Fixes:
MP - Major optimzation work to improve host frame-rate issues ("host-lag")

Spec Ops - Major optimization improvement to help with reports of spec ops "rubberbanding/lag"

IK Settings for clients were disabled whenever the host mantled through certain windows.

Fix for Stinger not locking onto UAVs when using the Wii Remote.

The GIGN SMG character would disappear when looking at him from a short distance.

Fix for M.O.A.B. locking out user's gun but still allow ability to pull out the radio.

The "Mission Select" menu would remain locked if a player launched a Single Player "Campaign" after creating the profile in the "Multiplayer" Shell.

Fix for player having no secondary weapon after turning off the Overkill Pro perk.

Spec Ops - Fix for the accuracy total on the end of match screen not always equaling what the player should have received

Fixed missing bomber emblem during gameplay

Fix where after a player exits the remote tank, their character would pop out of sight for a brief period of time.

Fix for when player could not pickup flag when placed on a turret

Fix for reports of players experiencing a freeze while a Remote Sentry is active in a Private FFA match

Fix for when emptying the clip of a SCAR-L with the Heartbeat Sensor and the Hybrid Sight in the short range position would cause the player to be unable to reload until they put the sight in the long range position

Fix for message stating weapon rank had increased when it hadn't

Fix for some imcomplete or incorrect playlist descriptions

Fix for "Assist" message not appearing in private matches

Several minor player collision issues fixed

Various stability improvements

They were good games until we got drawn against each other.
One thing is true, seeing you on the opposing team certainly made me up my game.
I guess when I know MPs are on my side, I can relax a little knowing you've got my six!!!
But when it's me vs. MPs, it's kill or be killed :devil:

Thanks to Scooby and Dadafett for those few games. It was getting on and 'Kill Confirmed' has to be my least favourite mode. Still, always great to game with you guys. Whatever the weather :cheers:

And I still had text lag, game lag, and some long waits in game lobbys. So not much difference for me either.

Good to catch bird dawg this morning, I think you were hosting, cause that match we had my usuall frenchies in game, though my wii is set to american region every game is with frenchy, no dis respect I usually get good games with that group. I had 15 french allies in BO though I was working graveyard when it came out. You and I were the only 3 bar signal that stayed constant, I haven't noticed anything since the patch. There is still HOST LAGG, which I know still exsist, text lagg as well....the recent players list is still broke but the option to add allies while highlighting their name is sweet as I sent a request to stink eye as I've played team defender with him before so this is a +. I just unlocked the pp90m01 or whatever it is called. So excited to go to work again with that gun, I wish I could have taken it with my prestige but the p90 works well too for starting out. Wasn't expecting too catch bird dawg out this morning, glad you were there, was trying to catch LAW as him and simon were my regulars on BO till I got back on normal working hours. Miss the graveyard crew we grew pretty tight at work, and missing the games with MP's that played when I was on then. I will be ON AGAIN today, got the day off so got to go get some stuff done, while the snows melting, it's gonna be around 28 degrees today :D

I've never played a Halo game online, but COD is known for having the biggest shit talkers and dumb asses saying racist and sexist stuff. Still, don't let those idiots keep you from chatting with friends. That is what the mute feature is for.

Manged to grab a few with Austin, and couldn't quite hook up with BirdDog.
Doubt I can get on tonight, as the wife is out and my youngest is poorly, so wouldn't want to quit a game as host.

I still doubt the voice chat ban will be lifted in the near future.
My booming voice and thin ceilings are not a good combination, with kids that don't sleep at the best of times.
Shame, I hate texting you guys on the mics. It would be much better to just have a good old natter like in the Skype days.

Thanks for the invite. I havent played Team defender much so far, sorry for blocking you in a few times in the room where they were keeping the flag. I really enjoyed the second game - so I'll def play this mode more often.

Hope little one gets better.

I have the mic but cant talk after 9pm. There's a mute button on the mic, so train youself not to shout/talk after bedtime.

Hey there Mutt. Shame our time zones are out of kilter. Would be good to game with you again.
I really like Team Defender, if only I was on coms.
As it would be a huge advantage to say "ok, I got the flag in x building, someone cover the door, someone flank them as they rush us" etc. etc. But that's a bit too tactical for us casual Wiiers I guess.
If your up against a good team, its damn hard to penetrate through.

I just finished some good games with BirdDog, Kobbe, and OFC tripper and tweety.
We were winning until one of them got Juggernut, and backed into a corner with the flag.
By the time you got past a few of them, you were too damaged to give him a good kicking.
They won on that tactic alone.

Kill confirmed is a bit too crazy for me, still fun. But just manic.
I've not done much hctdm or hcs&d on this, which used to be my favourites on BlOps.

Sorry to Scooby, Luv//Hate, and Emotions for not being able to game with you.
I did shoot you all invites to join the above crew, but assumed things were on

@Dadafett. Hope you had a good date night.

Your right. It would be a huge advantage to talk as a team and be each others eyes out there in the battle field. I've seen teams with and without clan tags with the mic symbol tearing up the game. I haven't seen a lot of MPs on my nightly games with them. I would hope the Headbanger headset would be compatible with the Wii U. It's almost curtains for the Wii and this is the last Wii COD game we're going to see. It would almost be a waste IMO if you can't carry it over to the next system.

I don't see an advantage of plugging a router into a router. Unless your using a long patch cable for the wireless one to have a wireless connection on different floor or in another room. Here's Nintendo's guide with many routers for wireless http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en ... /index.jsp (http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/routers/index.jsp) I have an Actiontec Gateway and I had to turn off Wireless N and switch it back to B/G because it was causing lag on the Multiplayer. Settings like that can make the Wii finicky. Bumping your bandwidth to let's say from a 3.0 Mb connection to 25 Mb connection is not going to fix lag or packet loss. It's just going to increase the speed for downloading files. Have you talked to your ISPs tech support? I'm not sure if your on cable or DSL but they could check if there are errors on your line and dispatch a tech to groom it. Ping and tracert tests would indicate if there is some sort of loss/latency. I hope that helps.

I had 1.5 mbs, now 3 mbs with a wired d-link router and I thought wired is better than wireless but according to the link you posted a while back it states that the model I had wasn't for gaming, so this has been on my mind ever since. So I got the wireless router today, it's a belkin n750 dual band, really have no idea what it means but, when I was on earlier running wireless I noticed my signal was fluctuating, so I hard wired it again and it seems better. I still think it depends on the game host and pray that you don't get host, as busy signal and bird dawg suffer from, I get it when not with you guys so let's party up more :D I feel for you guys, I rage quit though after 2-3 earlier I wasn't host just crap connection. I'm not running router to router. I was from modem to wired router, and now modem to wireless router but with wired connection, but this router is gaming compatable. Better results running wired with my nintendo lan adapter. It's not different than the wired router, but still get kicked and lose connection to host which I have no idea why or how to remedy this, it might be game related but definately pricey and frustrating.

GG's tonight with busy and mutt, scoob, saw reb, but I was jumping off....pretty much team defender and kill confirmed for the night. I'm really loving the IMS right now, learning spawns and knowing where to put them is a advantage, though they are getting taking out alot quicker lately and sometimes before I get a kill with them. I didn't get a new headset today as the router was a little more than I was expecting but, I tried my broken headset a while back with no luck. I'd like to pick another one up either way, I only used it a couple time on BO till the kid took it to a friends to try out which it didn't return for months and in 2 pieces. I only talked to MP eraser on it early in BO. I run and gun too much unless I have the flag, I'm a objective player when on most of the time, but in HC is the biggest advantage with I see. It would and does add another element to the wii gaming as it's new...texting is cool but strenous, just chatting or letting others know what is happening in the map when you die is a plus, as in the last kill confirmed with busy I think that was his escort air drop, I know I ran right by him, he said something, my hearing is a little weak especially while in game with all the back ground noise...I kept trying to get back to the drop zone but kept spawning on the other side of the map, died 3 times before the enemy got your JUGGERNUT. We still won the match farely easily but that one guy on the other team was invincible. Not really but hard to get down, I think theres a uav hack out there as bird dawg was mentioning earlier in some games. I've had that idea for the last 2-3 days, usually I notice a change later in the evenings. When I prestige next time, I'm saving my double XP till lvl 60-70 as it takes forever to get through those...team defender will lvl up quick during earlier levels as long as we hold the flag and I'm killing..MUTT had some sweet spots while holding the flag tonight, that one on mission, the other team must have thought you were in the house as I had IMS on the back, another was arkaden where you held your spot down. The other team wasn't really going for the flag to much it seemed like, just working on the support package juggernut, and then it was over but, GG'S all around. MP'S \m/ :cheers:

I don't use the mic a huge amount in game but when I do it's usually important stuff like "grab the goodie" when the airdrop comes. Also when someone is on your six or I found a camper. Or lastly, when I'm host and bitching about the lag and threatening to rage quit. Otherwise its just fun to yak in the lobby pre game which with match making the way it is you can have a decent conversation in that timeframe. As for the shit talking morons, horriblle singers and just annoying people, I mute them all the time. Having the mic is how I met a lot of my allies on BO.

Most if not all wireless routers today can run wired as well. I know mine has 6 ports to run wired. Until my puppy chewed the cable in two, mid game no less, I ran hard wired and it was better when I was host. That was when I was playing BO. Haven't replaced the cable yet so not sure if it would help in MW3. I'm going to convert my home office into a full fledged mancave and when I do everything will be hard wired, guess we'll see then.

GG's all. I think I'm going to get a few games in now.

It was GG's last night. That spot on Mission was a lot of fun. Putting the IMS on the one entrance and covering the other corner was perfect!!! What is the strategy for killing a Juggernaut. I've emptied clips and thrown 'nades and I've yet to take them down? It was also nice switching between both TD and KC. Nice balancing.

Yeah, Kobbe is a real go getter - he'll be on tonight, I'm sure; he'll get a kick if you ask about his trip to the White House today - He and Sharon got a private tour with his young people in govt group. Good kid, good grades, great aim... ;)

GG's Blackpowder and Busy Signal. By the last 3 matches I was getting slaughtered out there and couldn't get any kills. I was trying to complete the 500 kills challenge for the PP90M1 and maybe I was too focused on that. That first S&D match was a lot of fun, but I had no clue what I was doing so I was just supporting whomever had the bomb. I'm reallly starting to hate the Arkaden map. The worst spot IMO is that large area by the escalators. I'm constantly getting hot by all sides and can never react quickly enough. Well that's my rant for tonight.

I know knifing does not work...hahaha. A guy shot me the other night while I was picking up the Jugger package, and then took me down with one shot once I had it cuz I was already injured. Also, I figured out the other night that you can take down an entire Escort Airdrop with a well timed EMP.

I actually set up a class with smaw launcher for juggernuts as it seems about the only way they can beat us at team def. Used it last night on bakaara and shot him in the face and it still ddin't kill him, but the next few shots did :D I personally think this game is more hacked then BO, and only being a month from release. There has to be some uav hacks or something similar, I can have UAV up and be using assasin and still get taken out by someong coming around the corner I'm at, I know they could be using assasin too but to know excactly where I'm at and I know some other MP's have experierenced this. We were going up against G5 on "arkaden" and we got destroyed, though the next map was at carbon and I had a good game against them??? To end the night has some good games with $$ nightmare and $$???, busy,ssdd, mutt...we were rolling them through tdm and then it was all slow motion, every aspect of the game was slowed, throwing flashes bullets on the pp9 sounded like single shot AR's...interesting yes, a little funny at first, but aggrevating at the same time, glad we finally left the lobby after a couple matches, it just seemed to aggonizing trying to just get somewhere in the map as it took forever.

I don't know if the uav hack or whatever they have is really there, as I run hardline on some classes and I can usually have constanst uav myself, but it never says enemy uav when we experience those matches, and it does say it in others so I think it's a hack they use. I still wonder if it isn't host related issues as well, cause hosting sucks just as bad as before the patch, really don't notice any change since other then the option to add players in lobby. Team def, has gotten alot tought to get good games in, as the MW3 world has figured out it's is good dbl xp, I was hoping to get to prestige again over the weekend but not gonna happen.

I came across the UAV hack last night on a FFA match on Hardhat. The game had just begun and it was 9:57 into the match and it said someone had gotten UAV. How do you get 4 kills at the very beginning? In the same match, someone had invincibility, I was behind them and they weren't aware of my presence. I couldn't kill them and the same thing happened later with the same guy. I saw one guy (not floating high in the air) levitating a couple of feet off of the ground inside the building. If they have constant UAV, your at a major disadvantage. I still stuck around and finished my match because I was still getting some decent skills. I skipped BO entirely, did it have the same probs with hacking as WAW, MWR and MW3? I have a feeling I have answered my own question.

It was very interesting between the slow motion games when the Activision tech was in the lobby and specifically pointed out one of the players (shadow something or other) who he suspected of hacking the game. He gave him a warning and told him to stop and that he was launching a full investigation of everyone in the lobby. On a side note the slow motion really seemed to help my game at least the one on Hardhat. Maybe further proof that my age is affecting my reflexes. LOL.
