I got the game this morning as soon as Best Buy opened, and jumped online as soon as I got home.  I had to laugh as I was a level 1 in a room full of 30's and 40s'.   icon_lol

I definitely think they lowered movement speed.  I think I like it, but it's taking getting used to.  Should make it easier for people to hit things that had trouble before, but it will also make it harder to get to cover under fire and it was already almost impossible.  I feel like my sprint is always empty and I'm plodding along.

Here's me joining up with Romy, but getting put on the other team.  My team was down and there was a TON of crap in the air.  I shot it all down, got a crate out of it, and in that crate was the juggernaut armor.  So I used it...

I'll keep my channel updating with videos.  I also went elite so I'll have bigger better ones too.

edit:  there, started the playlist   Hark's MW3 Playlist

Is Elite working properly for you?  I registered for free, linked my gamertag, but it keeps telling me I have no MP data, including Black Ops.   saywhat  It gives me a notice that I have to play at least one Black Ops match in order for stats to start compiling, but I've played plenty.

Is there a lightweight/marathon/commando build in this game?

And can you dual wield shotguns?

not really, but sorta

not sure, haven't used enough to really check

There is a perk that lets you sprint longer, but not one that makes you faster (and you move slower overall)

There is a profiency depending on your weapon that makes your melee attack faster/recover faster

What are the regular package, hardened package, and veteran package unlocks you can get by spending tokens?  Any chance I can get away with asking this question without someone commenting on how I don't know what a hardened package is for?

I entered my Elite code on the dashboard, now what am I supposed to do? I tried logging in through their console Elite app, but it just keeps hanging at the "logging in..." step. Do I just wait till later when the servers aren't being so hammered? Or is there some web page to go to instead?

hmm,i can see Hardhat map becoming a map i will get fed up of easily,only played 12 or so matches today and must of played Hardhat 5-6times already,i am already sighing when it appears icon_cry


compared to Black Ops,i am ultra shit at this game,but that first death streak perk,is all kinds of useless(Sprint faster for 7 seconds when spawning),i usually spend the first few seconds checking out the mini map


however i am still enjoying it and i can only get better..right?


very much enjoying the single player as well,graphics do look ...well,nicer,some people may say its a tired game engine but i think it does the job just fine,just about to start Act II(my time on the single player says 2hrs 38minutes)


and yeah Elite is still screwed,i managed to get on with my 360 on the second try(and it took forever to load up),but then when i selected another feature,it failed and sent me back to the start screen..and i can't even get on on the net


so,are you guys levelling up one weapon or are you flying through as many as you can and levelling them all evenly?

I'm sticking with one weapon for now just to get the feel of it.

I'm loving the game, the maps, the speed... I may not bother to go to hardcore nod. I also like the support versus assault killstreaks, since I like to be helping the whole team.

Well they definitely helped the noob player out.  I played for 2 hours and got to level 20.  I got 3 Pro Perks in 2 hours and I didn't get a single one the entire time I played BLOPS.  I went 206-201 and won and lost 10 games.  The Support kill streaks are such a great addition, I would have gotten maybe 2 all night, but with the carry over I got somewhere around 20.  I even got to call in a Stealth Bomber.  Very fun!!

I was jumping between different weapons in load-outs, but it got kind of frustrating so I'm just sticking with one default assault rifle for now and playing with the other options like perks and kill streaks.

I think the default rifle, the m14a1 or whatever its called... Is the best assault rifle until you hit the ACR. Three bursts weapons have been impossible for me to use with the hit detection or lag. So far the game has been a total blast.

Anyone else kind of miss the giant "OMG YOU LEVELED UP" stuff they used to throw across the middle of your screen? I found that having it in the upper right is so unobtrusive that I'd frequently miss it, even with the sound effect.

Had fun last night.  Leveling seemed way faster than the previous COD games, and I made it up to lvl 18 or so over three hours.  Maybe they were okay with speeding up player leveling because of the introduction of weapon levels as well.  Either way, I like it.  Of course, I still suck something fierce.  Getting kills was rough.  Still trying to decide on a primary I really dig.  Loving the support class just because it actually allows me to get kill streaks for a change.

Spent a little over 3 hours in MP with fellow GTers and had a blast. My gripes with the game are the same ones from the previous 50 COD games: hit detection and that f*cking knife.

Got up to level 20 using just the assault rifles. So far I really like all of them. The M4 and M16 were great. The 4th assault rifle was ok, but I quickly moved away from it. My favorite so far is the silenced SCAR with the kick attachment. Silent death with no recoil? Yes please.

Can't wait to jump back into the fray tonight.

Just a quick question..

What does this mean?
 "Call of Duty Elite’s premium tier adds the Modern Warfare 3 DLC delivered monthly throughout the 9 month DLC season"

Is the map packs that they sell throughout the year will be free is I sign up for this?   Or is this something else?

Yes. If you do the annual you get all of the dlc delivered during that time for 'free' and get to keep if if your sub lapses.

Word on the street is that Elite is still borked tho.

This is a game I play throughout the year.  Burnt it up for a month or three, then not play it for a month or two, then throw it in again.

Buddies stop in, throw it in and pass controller, etc.   

I am not sure why its addictive like a TBS game or something. 

Not having to keep up with the latest map packs and crap is good for a guy like me. 

Just pay now and get it over with sounds good.

Yes, I had the exact same thought. I mean, I understand why they did it (because I had certainly had my view blocked by the notifications in the past), but now my eyes are darting to the top right anyway when I hear the music.

Loving the support package.  The recon drone is wonderful, slight stun when an enemy is tagged, tag assassins and other radar resistant perks (basically have to be right on top of them though).

Racking up massive assists and points using it.  Had one match where I has 21 assists.

Too funny.  I was more hit by how much pop-up text and audio fanfares they throw at you in this game.  Bramp! Boopadoop!  Attention!  Breep! I felt like I was being notified of something new every 5 seconds.  That's CoD for you, though.

I had a ridiculous amount of fun with this last night.  It was great trying out all the new killstreak rewards, it was awesome hearing how much the... K/D ratio impaired GT crew members were thriving on the new support package, and it was good to again see the GT "kill anything in the sky in 10 seconds or less or your money back" philosophy back in action.

Teleporting knives are still BS, weird lag-related deaths are still BS, I wish there were more maps that'd let me snipe, dual wielding is still puppies, blahbety bloopy blah, having too much fun to care.

I'm normally Mr. Here Let Me Blow Up Your Plane, but I was finding that I kept mistaking all the blowing dust and debris for the UAVs, so actually spotting them to blow up was kind of a pain.

Actually, I kept on mistaking blowing debris or map clutter for enemies on the ground too.  Not that I could hit either one if my life depended on it.  Which it usually does.

I had the complete opposite experience.  I suck at MW2 but in the 3 games I played, I did quiet well.  Here I was only level 1, not knowing the maps and everyone else is level 30+ but I had a very good K/D.  I think maybe the slower pace suits my play style or I just got really lucky.

This game made me realize how perfect the controls/aiming is in COD games since I was recently playing Uncharted 3.  I'm pretty sure the smooth framerate also has something to do with it.

Yeah, I tried Battlefield 3 when it came out and absolutely SUCKED at it, with no improvement with practice.  With MW3 on the other hand, I was racking up XP and even managed to place 2nd in one of my matches. 

Question... whats the easiest way to get a decent GT friends list together for this game so I can play with you guys more? Do I need to go through the gamertag lst and just add everyone, or is there a group/guid type system where you can just join something in game andget automatched with others in that group? I havn't done a lot of multiplayer in the past, so my current friends list is pretty pitiful.
