Now here is a further explanation from the YouTube gamer who now says that he could have done things a little better with the release of his video. He wants it to be more clear to people that the purpose of his original video is to expose the problems with MW3 so that they could be improved by the developers. You can see his video below:

Many hardcore gamers in the FPS genre have noticed for a long time now that the COD series is becoming, or to some extent has always been, a truly watered down formula. The main purpose of this video, which was created by iFen0m, is to show the broken down map design found in the latest COD game, Modern Warfare 3. Check out the video for yourself. Be on the lookout for more from our own RealGamerNewz archives soon!

30 Days and 30 Nights: The Warhawk Rant

WileyCoyoteDaChamp

Thanks to Dylan Jobe (President of LightBox Interactive), and Sony,Warhawk got another boost giving all of us core players and people who just got on board a great reason to continue playing this awesome 3 year old game. Holding a 30day tournament 24/7 with official servers and not team or clan bases brackets made this crazy fun grueling environment come to life causing some good effects and of course even more bad ones. Leaving you the player with a true test of your $K!L and dedication while trying to land one of those top 50 spots even if not going for the prize but just the prestige of topping 50,000+entries.

Well after a full 30 calendar days of competition in this Warhawk tourney I felt the need to share my experience. When we started off on the quest to the great champion’s blade it was exciting everything seemed to be on point. Arch enemy clan members working together side by side to achieve the common goal I was in awe of the team work and the unselfish acts that were being displayed on the battlefield. Sadly as expected it didn’t last but a week or so till the true colors most of the self proclaimed best players in this great game started to become clear. This being primarily a “CTF” capture the flag tourney for most players seems to turn into more of a “TDM” or “ZNS” and all three modes are going on in this one game at the same time. Sounds insane doesn’t it, well it was. There were teams of people concentrating only on a few bases taking them back when the enemy moved on while others were just killing machines never stepping foot on the ground leaving the guys who are attempting to win the game for the team sitting ducks for even just one player to break through and stop the flag.

Well that’s all part of the game and it is expected to a certain degree. However some players seemed to be there only to disrupt the tournament game play and acquire negative points as a joke at the same time causing a multitude of problems for all involved. Here are a few of the scenarios that transpired, and I won’t be mentioning any names. You know who you are and it’s good enough for me that you get to read it. Some guys with teams of 2, 3,or even 4 people grabbing the flag, carrying it as far as possible, and tossing it to the one guy they were working for. The whole time this goes on they are also not helping the other carriers until they got taken out, making sure that he ended up scoring as much as possible. Also, same-team tactics included letting the carriers die then 15 planes swoop down and try to dig up the flag with no dignity or honor.

Then you have the guys who are on both teams working together for the common goal of cheating not even fighting just standing next to each other moving back and forth why even bother doesn’t look fun at all from the videos i have seen, dummies. Also another from the guys on both teams acting like they are playing for the team but just killing the flag carrier and not saving it so the clan member or friend trying to win the competition still has time to pick it up. I am not talking about the guys at the bottom of the list either. Then you’ve always got the loner guy who doesn’t matter whose team he is on he’s going to get his. By driving behind you with the jeep till you get out and ambient warfare you scoop the flag from your dead body and run it in. They also tend to stop the carriers vehicle long enough for the other team to kill him then repeat. Follow that up with a bunch off friends that just play for 3 or 4 hours call their buddy give him his password and so on makes it really tough to compete.

In the beginning the atmosphere was great but slowly it got to the point of constant swearing name calling with some people who should be setting an example for the rest to follow are doing the exact opposite and fueling the fire.

After all people are we not trying to preserve our favorite game and improve it welcoming new players and befriending the veterans not hating all downgrading the quality of play for everyone included. Sounds kind of foolish when you think about it yet it still exists and for some it’s the only reason they play (retarded). Anyway the folks over at Sony have assured that they are going over all the stats, videos, their own as well as submitted, with the feeling that its going to take at least a week to take out the trash. “Cheers”, unfortunately you know as well as I most will slip through the cracks being that there are so many of them. So this in mind I have a few ideas I think would limit the amount of cheating virtually making it impossible to bank so many unjust points and get rewarded while others work at it with good intentions and get swept aside.

To start I know it is way more work but only put the servers up in each time zone for X amount of hours limit the certain groups that thrive in empty servers with no competition or enemies for that matter. This will most certainly make the best players stand out with limited time to score points daily the servers will remain full for the duration of that time zone. Also, it will make said servers easier to patrol for the moderators which should be overhauled at this point anyhow. It’s a great idea but just isn’t working properly. 50,000 + people and only 50 get the championship blade and a shirt for home which is great. What about the other 49,950? Nothing. This will not bring out the most people, only the same people that you already have. Do the math. Something small, penny cost even, will double the roster along with strong advertisement in the right places. Don’t worry, I am talking about almost $0 cost. In the end, this game will begin to thrive again with all the new players ranking up telling their friends how great it is bringing a whole new group of sales for the lets say “Shh” new game in the works. Oh yeah!

In conclusion the various forms of cheating coupled with the rude and ignorant comments affected the game play for the entire community .Some small changes could fix many headaches closing the gap on those who choose to take the low road improving the level of play reviving the disappointed players ushering in a whole new era.

All in all the tournament was a good could have been great with lets just say a little more…
