Looking for a partner

February 27th, 2009

So I own this site and cod6.org and I rank VERY well in the search engines for every single search term about modern warfare 2 (modern warfare 2, cod6, cod 6, call of duty 6, etc etc)

I don’t really have the money to dump into this site to get it fully customized and running like it should. If there is a person or company that would like to have 50% ownership, please contact me.

And before you race to write an email, please don’t contact me if you have nothing to bring to the table. You need either money, programming and graphic skills, or something else that will be able to help these two sites go to the next level. The traffic is already here, I just need some help getting more features added to the site, custom design, etc.

If you’re serious about it, or know someone that may be interested, please contact me. This could really be turned into a great Call of Duty community with the right people. And if Modern Warfare 2 is anything like COD4, it will be a huge success and there will be traffic and activity for years to come.

cod6offer@gmail.com

Tell me a little about yourself and what you have to offer, your ideas for the site, etc.

Call of Duty 6 Perk Ideas – v2

February 25th, 2009

>> discuss it more in the forum <<

The post below was originally written for COD6.org

The reason I made a version two of this post is because of the MASSIVE popularity of the original. The blog post had 200 comments and the forum post has 14 pages. The topic of which perks will be in Modern Warfare 2 is clearly an important subject, so here we go again with round 2 of the discussion.

Don’t forget to stop by the forum if you get a chance. And yes, I know the header is F’d up and I’m working on that issue…

—————————–

The other post I made a couple weeks ago is totally over loaded with replies. It has almost 200 comments on the blog post plus however many pages on the forum thread. Clearly this topic is one that’s important to people, so I made this post with a better and longer list.

Eventually I’d like to put all the perk ideas into a poll and let users vote on which one they like the best, then maybe we can forward the results to IW.

Before you do anything, check out the official IW idea page. You can submit your ideas directly to Infinity Ward.

#1- FIRST AND FOREMOST

FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THAT IS NOT NOOBISH, PLEASE GET RID OF MARTYDOM. PLEASE. I mean for gods sakes, at least with noobstand you have to use SOME SORT of skill to shoot people. Martyrdom is just a terrible perk that was invented by the devil. Every time a noob gets a martyrdom kill, god kills a kitten. You don’t hate kittens do you IW devs? For the sake of the kittens, make it stop!

Bring Back the Friends Feature

Treyarch, bless their little hearts, tried their best with WaW, the friends feature is one of the few good things they managed to get done. Bring the friends option back but I’d like to have an option to be alerted when a friend comes online or enters a server.

Better Stats

Can’t we get some sort of stats tracking that would give you your global rank? Almost like an online AWSTATS only for Call of Duty. I’d love to know what my global rank is…I wonder if I’m in the top 5,000? Top 10,000? I think Battlefield has this but I’m not sure because I only play COD.

More Weapon Attachments / More Combos

The ability to use a combo like ACOG + Silencer. This could possibly cause balance issues for the devs, I don’t know, but it would be cool. Also just more attachments in general to choose from.

Reduce Recoil

This perk would make the AK47 completely SICK. I suspect the devs would run into some balance issues with this perk. But still a nice idea.

Monkey: ability to climb trees

Awesome idea IMO. Would be great for sniping too. I played on a few custom maps where you could climb trees and it was really fun. I’d love to see this. A more interactive environment would be awesome.

Destructible Environment

I think this is a great idea. It’s kind of silly when you call an airstrike on a little tiny shack and the shack protects you from like 3 x 500LB bombs. If they don’t make walls destructible with things like nades and launchers, at least make them destructible when an airstrike is called ya know? Unless there are no airstrikes in COD6 in which case disregard this entire post.

Pick Up Grenades and Flashes

Makes good sense, you can pick up guns and ammo, why not flashes and nades?

Increase Running Speed Perk (not stamina)

A perk for being able to run faster. Would be nice for people who like to knife and use shotty.

Something after 7 kills

Personally I’d like to see one more thing, perhaps a nice little something at like 15 kills. It kind of sucks to get to 15+ in a row and have nothing to look forward to. Even something at 20 would be cool.

Play Dead

Previously discussed, self explanatory.

Control the heli + able to be killed while in the heli

“After you get a 7 kill streak and call your chopper you will be the one actually responsible for kills. You are the machine gunner. Your helicopter cannot be shot down but you can be shot off of the mounted machine gun. Once you are shot your helicopter flys away.” Idea pulled from this post on the forum.

Character Customization

There should be a little more customization to the characters than just weapons, everyone is different. I mean for each side (green and red) there should be certain outfits you can choose from. Or instead of doing that, have options for Clans to make their own uniform from head to toe. Example- You join a clan you gain options to have custom fittings for your character, and you unlock more as more of the people in the clan ranks get higher and higher, you get more options. And the Clan leader chooses the colors and symbol for the clan. Maybe you unlock more things as you reach a prestige.

Remove eavesdrop

Nobody uses it, it’s probably the most non-used and worthless perk there is. At least on PC, dunno about consoles. Just seems like a wasted slot where something better could be.

Laser Beam Sights

They have the beams in single player of COD4, dunno why they didn’t add it to MP too.

360 / PC / PS3 Compatible

I know, I know. Everyone is going to start screaming that it’s impossible, it’s not impossible and I’m sick of hearing that. There should be some sort of OPTION, so I can play with my friends across all platforms. I understand the mouse gives me an advantage, I understand my graphics card gives me an advantage. Like I said before, if we can send men to the moon I’m pretty sure we can give the players the ability to play with their buddies across platforms. If IW makes this happen I will buy all the devs hookers form the bunny ranch and have them shipped to the IW headquarters. Make it happen! I want to shoot my friends in the face and then teabag them! ;D

Better Sniper Zoom

A perk that allows the sniper rifle to zoom in 2X or maybe even 3X like in Counter Strike Source.

OK that’s all for tonight, I can’t sift through anymore of the ideas. I have 200 comments in the blog post and 14 pages on the forum. Maybe I’ll update this post again tomorrow.

Got the header for the forum done

February 24th, 2009

It only took me 10 years, but I finally got it. Not too bad for only $40 huh? This is the company that did it for me, I just sent them what I wanted and they sent my banner back. My only complaint is that they put Call of Duty 6 in quotations, I asked them to remove the quotations and then it’s perfect. So by tomorrow sometimes I should have it up on the forum.

What do you think about the “playing dead” and “monkey” perk ideas in Modern Warfare 2?

February 23rd, 2009

I recently got a comment either here, or maybe it was at cod6.org, and the person was basically saying they should make a perk on Modern Warfare 2 that allows a player to “play dead”.  Now before I go on let me just say I don’t think IW will never make this happen for various reasons. That being said, out of all the ideas for perks that I’ve heard for Modern Warfare 2 that  IW will never implement, this “playing dead” is my second favorite after the “monkey” perk which would allow players to climb trees. Both the “monkey” perk and the playing dead perk are ideas that the community came up with. I actually saw people talking about the playing dead perk while WaW was in development.

I always look at things on how they would effect S&D games because that’s basically the only game mode I play. I think a play dead perk would actually be pretty awesome for S&D. Think about if you were the last player alive on your team and you go to the bomb and play dead with the other dead bodies, when they come to plant or difuse, BAM.

So how do you feel about this perk? How about the tree climbing perk, that would come in really handy for snipers.

Also, before I end this post, I’d love to see more destructable parts of the map like they have in Battlefield Bad Company only minus the tanks. Let’s say you call and air strike on some little house, I feel like the house shouldn’t be able to withstand 3 bombs being dropped on it…it’s just not realistic.

You can see a ton of perk ideas in the comments area of this blog post. You also may want to check out this thread in our forums for even more ideas.

What is your favorite weapon setup on COD4?

February 23rd, 2009

I have 3 total and I play SC S&D 99% of my COD4 life.

My #1 favorite setup is:

Silenced Scorpion / Silenced M9

  • Claymore
  • Stopping Power
  • Extreme Conditioning

In case you didn’t know, the scorpion is sort of glitched. You can basically use the silenced scorpion as an automatic assault rifle and the accuracy is as good as the M16 if not better. If you can see the enemy you can literally kill him from across the map. The gun really kicks ass.

AK47 / Desert Eagle

  • Stun x3
  • Stopping
  • Steady AIM

M40A3 / Desert Eagle

  • Claymore
  • Stopping
  • Iron Lungs

So there are my setups, I don’t usually use the sniper rifle because I’m not good with it. I have been trying to practice with it lately and get better. I know there’s a method to sniping that envolves moving just before you take the shot and since I’m not in a clan I have never really had anyone to teach me but I’m starting to get the hang of it. Usually I just stil with the scorpion or the AK.

First picture of Modern Warfare 2!

February 20th, 2009

Hey, I didn’t promise a good picture of COD6, you can see more of stupid Dane Cook than you can of the actual game, but it’s better than nothing I suppose.

So there it ladies, what you see on the screen is Modern Warfare 2. Why on Earth they let Dane Cook’s bitch ass BETA this before someone awesome, like me for example, is beyond me.

FU Dane Cook.

EDIT: Is it weird that I’m this angry at Dane Cook? Lol..

Give Feedback on Modern Warfare 2 Via Twitter!

February 20th, 2009

I’ve been advocating the power of Twitter pretty hardcore recently, especially the value in using it as a conversation tool and more importantly tracking those conversations and using the feedback contained within. That philosphy gave birth to http://twitter.infinityward.com . A Twitter web-app for tracking conversations and feedback for Modern Warfare 2 we’ve been developing behind the scenes.

The #MW2 app went live earlier today Yesterday, and within an hour has officially become the #1 most talked about topic on Twitter (just behind American Idol). I was blown away with the response to our first question, “Name one thing you’d like to see in Modern Warfare 2″ .

However, the ability to see real-time feedback and conversations about Modern Warfare 2 feeding through the app is only the beginning. The best part is the ability to vote on suggestions and rise in the ranks on the Leaderboards. Allowing us to quickly check the top rated suggestions, and reach out to the users with the best suggestions to hopefully include them in future events, beta tests, or community days.

How can you participate?

First and foremost, you can follow me on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/fourzerotwo) and keep an eye out for the next question. It will also be visible at all times at http://twitter.infinityward.com under CURRENT QUESTION.

When a question is asked, all you have to do is tweet your answer / suggestion along with #MW2 .

What is #MW2?

#MW2 is the official Hashtag for Modern Warfare 2. Which means, anytime I,or anyone else, is talking about Modern Warfare 2 on Twitter, we’ll mark it with #MW2 so it can be tracked and included on the http://twitter.infinityward.com live feed as well as searched for on Twitter.

#MW2 Leaderboards

Once you’ve thrown your suggestion or comment about Modern Warfare 2 into the Live Feed, you can track and vote on other peoples suggestions, and track the top users on the #MW2 Leaderboard. It’s a great way to get recognized in the community and I’ll be using it to identify community members to reach out to in Call of Duty / Infinity Ward future events and projects.

Feedback on the App

This is a fairly unique social media experiment in terms of using it to solicit feedback for game design. So any comments, suggestions, or feedback on how to make the #MW2 app even better is always appreciated. I’m always looking for new ways to reach out to our players and strike up a conversation. Feel free to drop me a line at robert.bowling@fourzerotwo.com with any inquiries about the web app, or how you can help.
