    So S&D was so hacked this weekend (my personal favourite being OHK'd by what looked like an M9 across the map, through a hanger wall on scrapyard....yipeee) that I played some DOM.
    Surprisngly DOM wasn't hacked much as far as I could see. It's not a game mode I play much and don't really know what I'm doing.
    Started off in Estate. Marathon, Leightweight, Steady Aim & Spas. Just ran big loops around the map capping A & C.
    Finished 9-15. Topped the leaderboards by miles and we crushed the other team. So funny really enjoyed it. Played a good bit of DOM afterwards. It's killing my kd but was lots of fun Sat/Sun. :)
    No-one shoots down air support at all anymore?

    Oh I miss this game. Reading this thread has brought it all back to me. I spent countless hours on this game. It was the first cod I had xbl for on launch day and imo it was the best by a country mile B.O. and MW3 cant compare to it. Don.'t even get me started on B.O.2. It had the best maps of the series Highrise, Favela, Sub-Base, Wasteland,Terminal, Rust and Bailout best maps ever.

    I remember I got to 9th prestige but it took me ages I flew through the ranks of the rest of em but MW2 had a much steeper learning curve for a relative noob like I was at the start.

    .

    I got into MW2 online late, had a crappy net connection around launch and was maybe 4-5 months later I started playing it online, sweet jesus, getting annihilated every match. Hands down the best maps of any COD game though.

    I don't know why but I never could, and still can't play MW2 and do well

    I have a 2 kd in MW3 and Blops 2..........hell I think my Blops 1 kd is still hovering around 3

    But not MW2.

    Nope - The universe just decided that I'm forever going to be sh1t at that game

    I'd say its due to the killstreaks in it. Looking back they were very over powered in comparison to the later games. Which I think was the right way about it if you get the kills then you deserve a weapon capable of dominating the other team :pac:

    Predator, harrier and pavelow were my ks of choice all you needed was 5 kills for the predator get two kills with that then get two kills with the harrier for the Pavelow.

    Indeed, stick on hardline and you could get an AC-130 out of 4 kills really, get your pred, harrier, that did all the extra work for the ac/chopper or whatever,especially on a map like Afghan or Wasteland where it was all open, you'd rack up streaks in no time. On a big ground war match the amount of streaks were mental, but it added to the absolutely chaotic feel of the game.
    I still think it's the best sounding COD game too, on a decent sound system the noise of the chopper gunner overhead or an AC130 raining down explosions was something else.

    Think the only full game of Ground War I played (my internet couldn't handle it at the time)ended with me being trapped in the car park in Underpass getting absolutley pasted by air support.
    Spawn die, spawn run a step die, spawn die etc etc

    Still a better game than any I had on blops 2 :)

    See thats where you switch to a different class. I had a dedicated anti-air class complete with RPD Stinger, cold blooded and marathon. In Blops2 I have one class for every map I don't even bother to change out perks and that kinda thing. Blops 2 doesnt have the same level of frenzy as MW2. There always seemed to be something going on in those games maybe it was just superior map design

    No, I have a stinger class. Trust me in that game it made no difference. I have several classes that I never change.
    Assault
    2 x SND (one with ninja one with sitrep)
    OMA (with akimbo machine guns)
    Danger Close (sometimes it just all gets too much)
    Sniper
    Witch (Marathon/LW/S Aim)
    LMG
    AIR Support (Stinger)

    Can't answer. I'm in the hackfest that is the PS3 :rolleyes: Have no real issues getting games although S&D was just about unplayable last weekend.

    Nothing beats the feeling of slowly but surely getting the hang of a fps and then dishing out some pain :D

    Does anyone still play on the PS3?

    Does anyone still play on the PS3?

    I've given up on it, as it was hacked to bits the last time I played. Same went for MW3.

    Or is it getting better?

    On PS3 there is only tdm games. There are hacked players but most games are fine. Still one the best games about even if though it's 9 years old. It's really surprising the amount of people who play together, like clans all mic'd up to. You wouldn't even see that in the newest cod whatever you call it.

    Played this weekend and got destroyed. I only play when drinking (which is my excuse) Can be hard finding games but still loads of fun when it works.
    I'm terrified I'll get my stats reset even though it really doesn't matter at this stage.

    This happened to me on Black Ops I think it was because I called someone a bad name for hacking. I was pissed off initially but then realised I didn't care as I never play it anymore.

    I still play - a lot - when It allows obviously - but yes it is still by far the best game of them all - there is literally 0 bad maps apart from the add-ons - the sound, graphics are still well up there to this day.

    Probably the best fps of all time!

    If it was re-released at €100 on the ps4 i'd pay it!

    Can't argue with any of that, I know if they released it tomorrow I'd lump straight in as would 90% of my original clan, cracking game! Hope they rerelease it and don't act the bollocks with any of it

    Found a copy of this during a clear out. Is anyone playing this anymore? Would love a few games of domination.
