When did MW2 beat YOU?

When did people stop playing MW2 because of its Major flaws but if your still playing what has kept you soldiering on?

i know there are some major flaws but i have avoided most of them by playing team death match. It seems like the other playlists are worse for boosting, glitching, and modding. the other thing i have done is not download the map packs. The rock in fuel isnt glitched if i dont have the map. As far as the game itself, prestiging has kept me into the game. Just as i start to get bored i am about to prestige. then it is a new challenge starting back over and getting to use new guns. Overall i still have alot of fun playing the game, however i complete understand the frustrations with the game.

Err bought Reach and the last time I played it was on the 24th. I don't know whether it was due to the lack of people/friends to play with or something. Also I like the fast arcade style of this game that and the fact I can quit out of a match at any time and find a new lobby fairly quickly.

It's not as bad as everyone makes it out to be if I'm honest.

It put me off the first time i got killed with Models...before the patch -____- lmfao but i still play occasionally just because some friends play and the unlocks...i dont care about kd or even doing good in that game as i did in cod4. In this game air support does all the damn work so there is just no point in caring..once someone has harriers and chopper gunners in the air its best to just stay indoors...however thats not what i want to do in a mp game...i would rather be going and playing the game then hiding from an overpowered kill streak. The only things that really killed this game for me where...glitches/mods, all the killstreaks(they should have just left it like cod4), the fact that perks go pro(if you have pro on all 3 your basically running 6 perks -___-), balancing issues..to me this game is just something to pass time..i dont play it to be good or anything like that..hell i dont even have fun...its just there...

I stopped playing maybe 2 months ago but I'm not the usual "I stopped playing this game so now I hate it" douche. I stopped playing because after something like 16 days played I just felt I'd got all I could out of it and Reach was coming out and my friends were all there so seemed like an easy decision.

I still love MW2, but our time together has been enough. The game didn't break me. There are flaws but the people that bitch about them are normally whinny assholes who blow everything out of all proportion. In my long tenure as a MW2 player I could probably count on my fingers the number of times I've played with hackers. Considering what I've always said: "EVERY SINGLE FUCKING BIG GAME FROM NOW ON WILL BE HACKED" (check the Reach forum) there really isn't that big a problem, considering it's a problem with online gaming and not MW2.

"But Hamburgerous, Treyarch said they'll deal with hackers" . . .

Wake up, Bungie said the same thing and they've always been very involved with the community and handing out bans and these things still go on. They went on in MW2, they go on in Reach and they will sure as hell go on in Black Ops. MW2 broke you? prepare for more of the same.

It's a great game but all the hackers have brought the game down and it now is to the point of ruining everyone else's experience...

Still soldiering on. I mainly play FFA. There isn't any tubing, which is good. Its a great game at its core. A few months after Black Ops, I will be coming back to mw2. It will be good because all the scrubs will be playing black ops.

I still play, but not every night anymore since making 10th 70. Still mainly play FFA, as i find objective games are a waste of time without an organised team.

Its still a great game IMO, theres nothing better to waste an hour with by going and having a laugh with different weapons, picking people off who think they are hidden and so on.

I packed it in a good 3 months ago, I still occasionally play it. But I just cant stand how boring it gets, at least with WaW you can fall back onto the zombie mode.

I took a break from it because every time I played it I would rage quit. I was getting fed up of people killing me with one shot to the leg after I'd emptied an entire clip into their head.

But I started playing it again a few days ago, tried a different game mode (Team Tactical) and I'm really into it. In fact I reached level 70 and decided to Prestige. It some how makes the game feel fresh again, and it's a bit more of a challenge with less weapons and perks etc.

I carried on playing it till Reach came out, then i completes it on legendary and went on freshers week for 2 weeks, only just got back onto my xbox however depending on what black ops will be like and how long it takes me to get to Lt.Col on Reach will depend on when i play it again.
Also i never seem to hit/have any problems with all these "major flaws" in the game, as there was such a variety that all you needed to do was adapt and change. If anything a flaw is all the players who can only play a certain with a certain gun/perk combo

Pretty much every game will have some form of mod/hack one way to stop All the hacking/modding would be to disable online in the next freeboot or game makers could just encrypt the xexs better
Theater mode may cut it down but i wont stop it I bet on sites like se7sins
There groups already getting tougher to find glitches in black ops and its not even out yet which is just sad ..

I had an update about a week ago as well, but couldn't remember if I cleared cache or not. I tested OMA tubes, and still got unlimited, so just presumed I must have cleared it, but I could not, for the sake of me, remember doing it.

that is really strange. i havent had to update mw2 in ages. Can you still get in the rock. it might be that. I dont have the new map pack so maybe that is why i didnt get the update. whoever has fuel should test it and see.

I stopped for months mainly due to how shite the community is, the flaws don't bother me as much as the awful players ruining the community because they can't aim for a second or two for a kill ...

Yeah you're right, I forgot it's fun being spammed with noobtubes and shit kids with commando thinking they're good ... thanks for reminding me how much FUN that is ... K/D has nothing to do with it, it's the fucking community ruining it for others because they're shit / idea of fun is being a complete cunt ... OMA and Commando wtf were IW ever thinking ... CoD4 + New guns & Maps and this would've lived upto the hype ...

imo its by far the best mp game out there. yes it has its flaws and i really hate people who abuse them. but i love the pace of the game and i find nothing more satisfying than dominate in this game.

i recently bought reach and its a nice game, but the mp with its sluggish action & controls and the old school gameplay really doesn't do the magic for me.

yeah can confirm as well that no update came out at all, so OMA+Noob tube is still working fine if thats your choice. Suspect it will never be patched now to be honest, people have moved on or deal with it.
