So, complete lack of matchmaking and not being able to play with anyone on my friends list aside...

I have to say, I despise the kill cam.

Who thinks this was a good idea? Why not just make everyone who wants to play as a sniper wear blaze orange or something? Or maybe light up the window you're sniping from with a neon sign that says "KILL ME!"

Bleh. Talk about ruining some of what little playability exists for this game.

Agreed...but the smart players move on after a few good kills from the same spot. I mean, sitting there all day gets boring.

Right, which I do. I've also used the kill-cam to my advantage by killing someone, hiding a short distance away and waiting for them to hunt me down to make them sorry they tried.

It's just silly to put something like that in, especially when it's so hard to even get a game going with 8 players. Most of the games I play end up being 2 or 3 on 2, so I pretty much have to pack up and move after every kill.

i dont mind the kill cam at all. i thought it was a great idea for those times when you think its BS how you got killed. i see your point that it may ruin the position of a good sniping spot, but like it was also mentioned a good sniper never sits still for long. other then the total lack of any kind of lobby in the game i think its great online. really surprised me how fun it was, when i read that it would only support 8 players i thought it would suck but it really grew on me with its playability. i usually dont have many problems in games that have 8 players (depending on who the host is) and just FYI you can play with friends, go to your friends list and while highlighting their nick press "X" instead of going into their profile where it doesnt even give you the option to invite friends, the biggest problem i have with playing with friends is them entering the lobby before the game is full.

No crap. The lobby in this game is the worst I've ever seen. It wouldn't have taken them long at ALL to get this right, but they slacked off instead. What a bunch of bull honky doodoo. I hate inviting friends and never getting a chance to play with them. The games fillup much to fast for me to do anything.

well like i said it is a launch title so time was always a factor to what they could do. the game is mainly a single player game IMO so in that respects atleast they took care of the important part first. its to be expected with launch software no matter what system launch it is. atleast the games will load and work unlike the DC launch tongue.gif now that brings back memories, loved the launch just didnt like my game not working

I hardly ever even see the kill cam, because I'm so damn good. biggrin.gif

When I play as a sniper, I never stay in one spot, I constantly move, so the kill cam doesn't affect me at all really.

i like finding a sniper and standing behind him for a few seconds before bashing his $#@%#% head in. you gotta give your victims some good kill cam footage.

How in the world do you add your gamer profile in your signature?
I tried that last night and couldn't get it to work.

Hey, come on!
Helping a guy who wasn't as lucky as you guys on launch day is the least you can do hahaha.
