CoD Modern Warfare 2

by Vrandas

Modern Warfare 2 tournament

International ?? 

Can't find any information about how or where other then US/Canada gamers can enter. 

Nothing in the official Play N Trade (host) Press Release or on the MW2 tournament website...

And what are we talking about ? Xbox, PS3 or PC ?

Xbox... I think. But again, can't find any info about this.

So, a lot of marketing but poor in giving useful information.

Play N Trade to Host International Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

And yes, Activision is sponsor of this tournament. So we can call it an official international MW2 tournament.

The Full Press Release :

Play N Trade Franchise, Inc, the fastest growing video game franchise worldwide, is excited to host an international Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 tournament at participating Play N Trade Stores offering over $1700 in prizes.

Players will compete in local rounds starting May 8th at participating stores throughout the U.S. and Canada which lead up to regional and international rounds beginning May 15th.

The 1st Place Grand Prize package includes $500 store credit, an Xbox 360 Elite bundle, G8 shirt, Steel Series Siberia V2 headset and a pair of Gunnar gaming glasses valued at $1300. 2nd, 3rd and 4th place contestants will all receive products from Steel Series, G8 and Gunnar, respectively.

Infinity Ward’s Modern Warfare 2 was one of the most anticipated games of 2009 and was the biggest entertainment launch in history, selling approximately 4.7 million units worldwide in the first 24 hours of its release.

Tournament registration is now open for the 6 man free-for-all tournament. “Local Round” winners will compete to advance to a “Regional Round” and the winning player from the “Regional Rounds” will be invited to the “Modern Warfare 2 International Round Finals.” Any person under the age of 18 must have a signed parental consent form in order to participate in an M (Mature) rated game.

Are Modern Warfare 2 Player counts dropping ?

CoD Modern Warfare 2

With the release of Battlefield Bad Company 2 only 1 week away... already the amount of PC CoD Modern Warfare 2 players seems to be dropping fast.

It can be that after 4 months, since the Modern Warfare 2 release, there is still a long list of issues.

Quercus1 made next list of ALL MW2 PC issues reported by Players.

IWnet/Bugs - Game/balance related - Feature requests List updated 24-2

IWnet/Bugs :

  • 8 out of 10 games in IWnet is lagging horrible
  • IWnet is infested by cheaters (hackers and glitchers), current implementation of VAC seems unable to stop them
  • The lobby is highly unstable. Kicking party members/players at random while finding a game
  • Host migration doesn't work properly alot of the times for most people.
  • Regarding adding players into a match which is half way through/ less then 1 min on the clock. Is anything in the futue going to be addressed towards this as joining a game to see the game winning kill is not fun/enjoyable (Unorth)
  • Game hangs at loading screen. And eventually gives an unable to connect to host error. (tohskis)
  • Cold blooded glitch,Basically if you have this equipped, when a helicopter 'dies' every bullet that hits it as it is falling out of the sky counts as a kill for the cold blooded challenge, so pretty much you can easily get all 250 kills (shane3x)
  • Bad patch deployment. (dpelchat)
  • Broken glass - While looking though broken glass the smoke effect disappears (Red $nake)
  • Spawn mechanic in this game. too many times you spawn in the middle of enemies or they spawn right behind you but never really with your squad. (dc8472)
  • Match the players based on pings and location and NOT by skill and other irrelevant stuffs (tankjuh)
  • Many Lost connection to steam error. (meofcoursethesecond)
