What's up internet folks? Hope all is well. Modern Warfare 2 was one of the most anticipated games in recent memory and is one of the funnest online fps games out there at the moment. But during the last few months, MW2's online community has been going in a downward spiral. The game is filled with a seemingly endless list of glitches and exploits that people love to discover. It started with the Model 1887 shotguns. What seemed like a simple, Terminator-inspired weapon got turned into an unstoppable beast when people unlocked the akimbo attachment for it. With seemingly infinite range and power, the gun tore enemy teams apart and just seemed overpowered. Then there was the ACR, while I (along with thousands of others) enjoy using this assault rifle, Infinity Ward made it simply too perfect in every way possible. Excellent power, range, accuracy, iron sights, and a fast reload all in one gun makes it too good for its own good. Compare it to a weapon like the F2000 which has a small magazine, a ridiculous rate of fire, and crazy recoil and it simply has no chance against the ACR. I don't know what Infinity Ward was thinking, but you need to make every weapon useful in some way, and everything needs its pro's and con's. And most recently, the grenade launchers and rocket launchers are MW2's most sizable flaw. The grenades can travel an infinite distance across the map and kill almost all players instantly. Same thing applies to rocket launchers. I played a ground war team deathmatch on trailer park (from the new map pack) last night that lasted 2 minutes and 30 seconds. The goal is 100 kills with 18 players and I'm positive that I was the only player not using grenade/rocket launchers. People are simply exploiting this game to death and Infinity Ward doesn't do a damn thing about it. I enjoyed this game so much back when it was new and wasn't filled with hackers with names with colored letters and Xbox symbols.
So in result, I've stopped playing the game until Infinity Ward does even the slightest thing to address this issue. I've been playing Halo 3, World at War, Splinter Cell Conviction, Rock Band 2, and probably some Bad Company 2 later on to fill my time on Xbox until they do something to fix this broken game. Heck, I can't play 3 matches before I get a message from a player asking to join a glitched 10th prestige lobby.
As for more positive news, I got out of school last Wednesday after finishing my History and Physics finals. I ended up getting the third highest grade on my History final which felt quite good and I managed to keep the A- I have in the class. Woohoo!:D Now that summer's here I finally get some time to relax. I'll be spending most of my time play games, guitar, listening to music, and hanging out with my awesome friends! Looks like it's going to be a great summer! Have fun everybody!
