Trust me they were hacking. Either that or his 25-0 kills that were all headshots coming through wall after wall were well placed skill shots. Take your pick.

Oh, Please don't exaggerate the time.. It was about 20mins and STEAM didn't go down.. IWNET went down.

I have the feint feeling that Hanksta2 must work for IW. Besides a few people who are flirting on the line and saying equal parts good/bad, no one really has anything good to say about the new IW.net system.

In fact for every 1-2 who are "meh" about it, there is another who agrees with us that this is one of the worst ideas/systems implemented in the COD series.

I don't know about you but me and my clan mates coudn't sign on for about 2 hours and it was due to steam saying it couldn't connect. So I'm not exaggerating anything. Cheers.

What's funny to me is how IW says that it is going to revolutionize PC gaming. I haven't been impressed at all.

the thing about P2P games is they usually need tweaking to get running after release. so slowly it may bet better, hickups may come from the patches such as the virus that turned out to be a false negative, and slowdowns. its really just best to keep relying problems and looking to see if it gets any better as the game patched to fix the p2p errors after patches apply. lol dedicated servers would ot need this treatment tho

UPDATE :

I actually got to play MW2 today. My friends have an apartment together and one was at work so we decided to duo tag team some people.

1. IWnet wouldnt let either of us on for 20minutes.

2. For the following 20min only one of us could get on and the other would crash.

3. NO LEANING. I have to reiterate this. What a terrible terrible idea to remove this. Why? Just why? It's been a staple of every game for so very long.

4. Any time host swapped, someone dropped from the game. More often than not it was me, whether that was luck or not. But either way. Terrible.

5. Gameplay is running around grenade launching and sprinting thru hallways with full automatics. We played Hardcore, search and Destroy, Team Deathmatch, the works. Nothing changed. No tactics. No realism. just spray n pray.

6. I WILL say. The gameplay was smoothe. For what it's worth, I never lagged and all in all the game ran smoothe and fluent. I will ALSO say, I could tell EVERY MAP which person was the host. Especially if he is somewhat competent. It is such a big advantage.

7. NO LEANING. Their reasoning? "We couldn't balance leaning with some of the single player maps, so it was removed." How stupid do you have to... never mind.

8. Single player took us, in co-op, 3 hours to beat. Start to finish. Are you serious?

9. lol Pistols are accurate at like 200 yards while running.


Either way. I joined in the first game with an M4A1, red dot sight and silencer. And I sort of just hugged corners and the map edge and found my way to 28-5 the first time I played the game (haha harriers and helicopters are ridiculous OP). Some snowy easy open map. It was stupid how bad some people are. Although the next map was some like afghani city and I got slaughtered in the maze and went like 5-10.

The game is decent. There's no arguing that. They just really butchered a game that could have set records, precedents, and pioneered the way for the rest of other games. They handicapped themselves.

What is with people defending IW and this game?

I think it's crap. Not because there is nothing good about it because it does have some good things about it. But it is not a good game because the P2P system is trash and opens the doors to every cheat ever known to the FPS world all at once.

The game only feels smooth because everyone else is lagging as bad as you are and they throttle the game to meet the speed of the slowest players. Basically what you have is a solid 100ms ping game that gives the illusion of a 30ms ping game. If you adjust your config to display more bars on the bing graph and then adjust how many ms the bars represent to 20 the graph will scale from 0-200ms each bar representing 20ms so you can get an accurate ping reading using the bars. What you will see is going to make you sick really. One game the host was using a program to throttle his upload to 10kb/s so that everyone had severe lag while he himself had none. You would get shot before you could see him and the game still felt like it was running fine and dandy with no lag yeah right no lag lol. This game is nothing but lag.

IW did a great job by removing the numerical ping display in favor of a VERY inaccurate bar graph that was intentionally set to show you a pretty picture of what is not actually happening. They did a lot to make you think your not lagging when in fact this is the laggiest FPS game on the market.

Enough about lag though. The downsides to this game far outweigh any positives and that is the problem. That is what makes this a bad game.

I don't expect anyone without serious competitive experience in PC FPS games to understand why this game is a complete disaster but it is that much I can assure you of. I would not recommend you buy this for the PC.

Now if you want to talk about the 360 version then sure it is a great game probably one of the best this year. But the game was designed to run on the 360 and ported to all the other platforms I expect it to run the way it was intended on a 360 and if you wanted to buy the game for 360 I would say go for it. The match making and ping match what you would expect on a 360 where as they do not on the PC version.
