Now you've done it, Activision. You've got a bunch of irritated fans on your hands…you know you've seen it before…what will you do now?
What is being called the "MW3Blackout" is making some waves; you can check Twitter to learn a little more. Basically, fans of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are planning a "blackout" day for April 20, 2012; nobody will play MW3 online to make a statement: Basically, they want Activision to address a bunch of game-related problems, starting with persistent lag.
Here's a video that will help explain things.
The list of problems they want fixed is quite long, and it includes Matchmaking options, changes to the "broken spawn system," more hardcore game modes, better Elite playlist options, the removal of any assault killstreaks from the support package, the fixing of LAN settings for competitive events, etc.
Okay, well, just so all you people are aware…if every last one of you opts not to play on the 20th, but then resumes play like normal on the 21st, Activision and Infinity Ward really might not give a damn. Fair warning.
