First off, lemme just say that I'm a huge Metal Gear Solid fan and I own every single installment. I played MGO when it first came out for the PS2 during the MGS3 phase. I also played MGO2 released with the MGS4, OBSESSIVELY! In fact, in my opinion, MGO2 is the best online game of all time, but it was just too bad that it went off-line on the 12th of June v_v . . Don't y'all just wish they re-established MGO2 with the trophy coming in August? Erh, anyway! I'm rambling now, sorry lol I'll get to the point.
I've been playing PWO ever since the MGO2 servers went off-line and I think it's actually really fun and it's got potential to be MGO, with the exception of a few minor differences. Well. . perhaps not *so* minor. Here are a few things I think should be included to enhance the PWO experience and make up for MGO going off-line. At least until MGO3, right? ;)
They should fix HS delay! Please bring imported - or at least NEW - MGO voice codecs! Isn't it odd that when we use a girl character, she sounds like Snake when she talks? I mean, they ALL sound like Snake lol Apply codecs! They should also apply an in-game text chat, just like on MGO. See, this would not only bring back MGO2 experience, but sometimes on CO-OP, you'll wanna do the mission a certain way and there's practically NO communication between host and players who join. I mean, at LEAST a host comment displayed before you join the room, right? Another thing is, I noticed you don't have the option to kick players if you ain't host. Please give us the option to at least REQUEST to kick a player. Also, wouldn't it be cool if they could increase the size of maps? This, perhaps is asking for too much, but if this is done, then maybe the maximum amount of players can be increased as well?
Also, I noticed an issue with the mic. If it's a match like TDM, you can HEAR the opposing side talking on mic. Disable that! Unless it's a DM because sometimes you'll be discussing strategy with your buddies over mic and they can hear it. Not only that, they may be planning things too and it's this free-for-all mic chaos, so it should be fixed.
I also noticed another issue. When playing Base Mission, remember on MGO2 that when you're capturing a base, the opposing team could NOT respawn on the base in question because it's under attack? On PWO, this does not apply. This should be fixed.
I dunno, it's all these issues that I wanted to address to y'all MGO fans out there. What do you guys think? If you agree with the issues and that they should be fixed, please join forces and send this message to PW staff! Who knows, the more people, the better. I doubt Kojima hasn't noticed how packed PWO is now that MGO2 went off-line, so perhaps I'm only exaggerating, but maybe they'll listen to us? They want us to come online, right? If you disagree, then that's fine as well. I suppose we can just take it as it is, but it don't hurt to try to make a difference :)
