    [h=1]MW3 fans threaten global blackout over "broken promises": "we will not be denied"[/h] [h=2]Want lag compensation, akimbo pistol nerf, other stuff[/h] One fan protest winds down, another fan protest winds up. Or at least, attempts to. A group of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 players are calling for a "global blackout" on 20th April to punish Infinity Ward and Activision for a perceived lack of support.
    Both console and PC players are invited. The organisers have made a number of demands on Activision, including but not limited to:
    - Fix the spawn system
    - Lag compensation
    - Nerf the akimbo machine pistols
    - Remove deathstreaks
    - Remove Assault streaks from the Support package
    - Add individual volume controls in the audio menu
    - Add more Hardcore game modes
    - Add better Call of Duty: Elite playlist options
    "We were sold the game based on broken promises. It's now time for them to make good on their mistake," intones a video created to support the blackout.
    "We are Call of Duty," it adds, ominously. "We are the community. We will not be denied."
    As of the time of writing, the MW3 Blackout Twitter group has 120 followers. We'll keep an eye on that.

    Whoa whoa, so when I get baked on 4/20 I can't game mw3 on 360?!?? I'll admit the akimbo machine pistols, especially that first one the fmg I think its called, that's the only one I've noticed that's outta control. Nobody uses like akimbo skorpions haha. I only usually play dropzone so I don't know how spawning is outta whack in other game modes. I'll have to consult with some fellow gamers. But I do not support companies who promise things then don't deliver. That's wrong. I stand for What is right.

    Call me naive, but what's a bunch of people not consuming Infinity Ward's server resources for ONE day going to do to them?.. after a week of protest they might shut down some extra suffers and save on electric bills but how would this hurt them?

    This all seems ridiculous, but MW3 is so much better than BF3.
