If you rember the forum from these days people hated CoD4 in all sorts of ways.
The knife was useless
The Frags was too dangerous. No-one used the N00b-tube becuse you coud have fragsx3 as a perk and the frgs were a lot more deadly.
The Helicopter glitch was never fixed
Constant whining over this or that gun and certain perks like Martyrdom, and how the Sonic Boom perk (later Danger Close) upped the explosives.
Yup, according to these official forums CoD4 was a terrible game and every relese since has been the "worst CoD ever" .
We wanted the knife to be better = IW gave us Commando
We wanted to switch to a "Rocked class" wihot having to die = IW gave us OMA
... Shall I go on???
Naah, just a reminder to be careful what you wish for when you decide to come here to whine instead of discussing tactics and setups and stuff that is actually helpful.
A patch usually comes just right before x-mas to further smoothen out things that plauged us early buyers and the first 3 weeks is a great time to up your K/D-ratios pickng off those x-mas noobs .
