Fed up with some of the outstanding issues still plaguing Modern Warfare 3, some gamers have started a movement to boycott the game on April 20th (at least they picked a day where they’d be…”busy”….doing something else).

The list:

  • Lag Compensation
  • Matchmaking options which include the ability to enable disable local search and base search off the party leader when playing with friends
  • The broken Spawn System
  • Full featured Theater mode
  • Individual volume controls in the options menu
  • Tac insert removed from Kill confirmed
  • More Hardcore game modes
  • Better Elite playlist options
  • Objective stats on in-game scoreboard
  • Akimbo machine pistol nerf
  • Removal of any assault kill streaks from the support package
  • Removal of death streaks and Fix Local Area Network settings for Competitive events

The bolded ones are some of my biggest gripes with Modern Warfare 3. I don’t at all understand the second to last one about removal of assault streaks from support package.

Boycotts like this probably don’t do anything and a lot of this stuff is probably not easily fixed, but they are reasonable gripes.
