    Looking Back at the MW3 Release 

    We are not that far away from another Call of Duty release.  This time we will get Black Ops 2.  Personally, I’m looking forward to it.  However, I remember the nightmare I experienced when I popped in MW3 for the first time.  The lobby and game connections were… wonky.  To Infinity Ward’s credit it has gotten better since the release.  My most vivid memory of the release is that I kept experiencing death by FMG.  The machine pistols were ridiculous.  I guess they still are, but a more balanced now.  Oh yeah, then there was lag compensation.  I wrote a couple of pieces about topic that are here and here.


    My K/D ratio was at .6 after the first few days of play.  I’m now at 1.2, but it took me a long time to recover.  I came across a video that put the akimbo FMG9 usage in perspective.  At around 1:10 into the clip shows the mind set of most people I played against.  I am paraphrasing XxEcKoxSoldierxX here, ‘I kept dying to this setup so I used it.’  When in Rome, start using Akimbo FMG9s?  It was effective and you can’t knock people for using it.

    Hopefully the BLOP2 release will not be as bumpy as MW3.  Well, I’m staying positive and keeping my fingers crossed.  How did the release go for you?

    Update (10/30): A had a chat with a friend today.  He posted a link to about the voice talent acquired for Modern Warfare 4.  I’m not sure if I’m ready for Modern Warfare 3.  Modern Warfare 3 left me a little jaded.  I have said this before and will say it again.  It felt like I was playing Modern Warfare 2.5.  We will see how I feel this time next year being at the release of MW 4.

    Will Black Ops 2 Have Lag Compensation?

    If you are interested there is a very long thread on this topic on the MW3 forum.  If history is a teacher the answer will be yes.  Lag compensation was in Black Ops and MW3.  Its only natural to assume they will continue this feature in Black Ops 2.  Even though I’m not a fan of this feature I’m still going to buy and play the game.  I’m pretty sure most people that don’t like the feature will still pick up the game.  No conclusive evidence here but call me out if I get it wrong.

    Update (10/30): I recently gotten wind that dedicated servers for Black Ops 2 are extremely unlikely.  That was a possible option that would do away with lag compensation.  The core theme of lag compensation is around dealing with host latency.  The idea is to try to add delay to faster players to even the experience for slower players.  However, its not hard to spoof latency.  There are many videos demonstrating this.  I will not provide a link to any of them.  I don’t want to encourage this behavior.  Using any technique like this is cheating and will get you banned.  There will be no blaming your lifetime ban on Eliot for showing you how.

    MW3 Team Defender 22 – 6 Tips and Strategies 

    I finally got around to recording some MW3 footage.  I am using my Droid X2.  I think the video came out good.  I have been fighting with getting the idea of getting a capture device.  I think I may have to do a little more research before I make a purchase.

    Team defender is a nice additional of the MW3 playlist.  Here are some additions quick tips.  Most of the action is right in front of you during the entire match.  Not getting shot in the back is a nice change of pace.  Blast Shield Pro helps with extending your life from the bombardment of grenades you will receive; it also reduces the affects of flash and concussion grenades.  If you haven’t tried this mode out give it a try.  What do you think of team defender?
