Servers closing?
 
Just wondering what the lifespan on COD3 servers are... I just picked up the game but I haven't had much initiative to play it yet. Do you think its servers will close anytime soon, seeing how old this game is?

i played a few games last night, seemed pretty busy to me, no trouble finding a game. So i wouldn't worry just yet.

though, if you're looking to get the Online Acheivements, you'd better get started, just in case...

soloteg 03-24-2010 05:49 PM

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I wanted to finish COD2 first but I might as well get the onlines out of the way for 3 first

fuzzbecool219 04-09-2010 12:52 AM

Would u wanna play online I just got the game 2day?

soloteg 04-09-2010 03:23 AM

haha I've had it for 2 months now and I haven't even opened it. I'll play it soon, I'll FR you when I finally put the game in.

Are people still playing this online? I just got the game from a friend this week and want to knock off the online achievements quickly.

Thanks!

Quickly? Really? They took me 2 months to get! The quickest time I've seen someone get them is in 3 weeks!

Th3 Maj0r 06-23-2010 01:52 AM

yeah I played for like 2 months straight and i still dont have the general achievement...

StayonTarget 06-23-2010 05:33 AM

Called boosting, my friend.

Corrupt. 06-24-2010 02:56 AM

Even with boostiing its still a lenghty task...

BROOKER 513 06-25-2010 01:57 AM

try flag boosting its the fastest way to get points towards General.

Dz06lt 06-25-2010 01:59 AM

im not sure if thats gonna happen since they just released "Call of Duty The War collection"

Stratacoustic 06-28-2010 09:06 PM

But I doubt that will generate sales much. Most people either have played all of those games already or look at them as "too old". Are the online achieves even worth working towards?

P2P hosting will only stop when micro shuts down the Live360 servers.

Redeemed Hitman 07-30-2010 12:49 PM

I got a 100o in this game in less than 2 weeks. 3 days to beat campaign on vet and six days to boost. If u r decent at game and know how to boost it is easy to 1000 out. If u dont believe me look did it on my first account(CLINT0NP0RTIS26) o's are zeros

StayonTarget 07-31-2010 05:14 AM

Listen ya smart ass. Back 4 or 5 months ago, there were a ton more antiboosters than there were when I played a month ago. And way more boosters who didn't know what the fuck they were doing. Whenever I flag threw, I gave the other team a good 850 points when their flag thrower gave out team 500. I knew what I was doing but it is harder when A, not everyone playing is boosting or B not everyone knows what they are doing. I'm yet to beat it on veteran but that's cause I haven't tried. Took me forever to get 10K. Then less time for 20K. Then 10 days for 40K. Over the course of two months, I found more boosters playing. It's not always you are a bad booster. It's that I physically put in 2 hours a day when others spent 26 hours a day playing. I have a life outside of my xbox.

soloteg 08-01-2010 01:15 PM

I dont think he was being a smartass..

fuzzbecool219 08-01-2010 02:59 PM

still wants to play this

ReapingEcho 10-01-2010 12:46 PM

Don't think the serveres will ever close unless xbox 360 closes down. Hell Call of Duty 2 is still up cause I felt like trying it's multiplayer out 2 months ago and still people playing that one. lol

Exactly. Once xbox 360 goes, COD3 will go chances are. Don't rely on any "sources" unless it actually is on a valid site.

roonaldeyo 12-05-2010 12:45 PM

boosting 1vs1
 
can i boost the online achievements with a friend 1vs1 or do I need more people?

ReapingEcho 12-05-2010 08:36 PM

You need 8 people to boost, yes it's a lot but if there are still many boosters out there in the lobbies you can just keep finding them there till you gather full devoted 8 players and flag boost.

StayonTarget 12-18-2010 06:12 PM

Last time I played this, everyone in CTF was boosting.

backonceagain 03-04-2011 08:28 AM

Yeah iam looking to boost to General before the servers are closed!! If anyone want 2 join in and help then add me!!! GT: KILLER1NST1NCTS

hopefully looking to find boosting groups for all time of the day..

JONBLEACH 03-05-2011 02:28 AM

still not closed lol.

TERMINATOR 2452 12-05-2011 07:03 PM

Hope they dont close it, i still play it. They can close cod 2 as its died online. :uzi: :Bounce:

StayonTarget 12-06-2011 01:58 AM

I know I'm coming back to this over a year later. But whatever.

Call of duty doesn't have servers like EA. So they aren't super expensive to run. I doubt they'll close them.

3K post.

SpinalSynopsis 12-06-2011 02:05 AM

If you know anything about the COD series, the servers won't close. It's not like EA servers. I still play COD4 on-line and there are TONS of people still playing it. So I'd say at least 5-8 years ;)

KoF NEO GARCIA 02-19-2012 12:48 AM

I hope they dont close the servers soon, since I decided to grab that multiplayer cheevos!!
