Gamers Threaten MW3 Blackout on April 20th

Are you playing MW3 on April 20th?

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).
If this sounds somewhat familiar it is because Battlefield 3 gamers threatened the same thing a few weeks ago. Their demands were small, however, and they were met prior to the blackout date.
With Modern Warfare 3, the demands are a bit larger, including some fixes for major things like lag, some new features, and quite a few weapon/perk balancing issues. We’re not really seeing how the blackout would hurt Activision that much as they already have the money that the players spent to buy the game (and their lead in gamers actually playing the game is probably large enough that it would stand even with everyone taking a day off), though I suppose it’s more about the message.
The full list of demands is below, as is a video advertising the blackout date. What do you think, will gamers actually follow through with the blackout (as gamers we’re all notorious for threatening boycotts and not following through), and if they do will it actually help? Sound off in the comments.
  • 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

Okay so most of those fixes are cool, w/e would be better for the community. But apart from going out and buying everyone who owns mw3 a decent connection how do you expect them to fix lag? Their game doesn't cause it the players connections do. >.<. Fk lag, make matchmaking stick to your country only unless you decide otherwise, I don't wanna hit play now and end up in some russian filled lobby.

And screw that 4/20 Ima get high as hell and play some damn mw3, pick another day.


although I like these ideas none of them will happen.And even though they wont be happening I still wont be playing on april 20th for some other reason
