OK, so here’s the deal ladies. If you have a clan or are thinking of starting a clan and need hosting, you can host it here free of charge. Take a look at this area of the forum, it’s an example of what your clan forums would look like. Who ever requests the clan forum will be made moderator of their entire clan forum so that you will be able to add/remove boards and decide who can see what boards and so on.
I’m going to need a vouleenteer that will be strictly responsible for setting up new forums for clans. So if a clan requests a free forum, you will be responsible for setting it up, setting the correct permission for the main user, and getting them all squared away. The vouleenteer should be responsible and very familiar with SMF forums. If you’re currently a member of the forums or a moderator feel free to apply. It’s important that the person be very familiar with SMF and how it works as you will have admin permissions and the ability to really mess things up if you don’t know what you’re doing.
The other post I made a couple weeks ago is totally over loaded with replies. It has almost 200 comments on the blog post plus however many pages on the forum thread. Clearly this topic is one that’s important to people, so I made this post with a better and longer list.
Eventually I’d like to put all the perk ideas into a poll and let users vote on which one they like the best, then maybe we can forward the results to IW.
Before you do anything, check out the official IW idea page. You can submit your ideas directly to Infinity Ward.
#1- FIRST AND FOREMOST
FOR THE SAKE OF ALL THAT IS NOT NOOBISH, PLEASE GET RID OF MARTYDOM. PLEASE. I mean for gods sakes, at least with noobstand you have to use SOME SORT of skill to shoot people. Martyrdom is just a terrible perk that was invented by the devil. Every time a noob gets a martyrdom kill, god kills a kitten. You don’t hate kittens do you IW devs? For the sake of the kittens, make it stop!
Bring Back the Friends Feature
Treyarch, bless their little hearts, tried their best with WaW, the friends feature is one of the few good things they managed to get done. Bring the friends option back but I’d like to have an option to be alerted when a friend comes online or enters a server.
Can’t we get some sort of stats tracking that would give you your global rank? Almost like an online AWSTATS only for Call of Duty. I’d love to know what my global rank is…I wonder if I’m in the top 5,000? Top 10,000? I think Battlefield has this but I’m not sure because I only play COD.
More Weapon Attachments / More Combos
The ability to use a combo like ACOG + Silencer. This could possibly cause balance issues for the devs, I don’t know, but it would be cool. Also just more attachments in general to choose from.
This perk would make the AK47 completely SICK. I suspect the devs would run into some balance issues with this perk. But still a nice idea.
Monkey: ability to climb trees
Awesome idea IMO. Would be great for sniping too. I played on a few custom maps where you could climb trees and it was really fun. I’d love to see this. A more interactive environment would be awesome.
I think this is a great idea. It’s kind of silly when you call an airstrike on a little tiny shack and the shack protects you from like 3 x 500LB bombs. If they don’t make walls destructible with things like nades and launchers, at least make them destructible when an airstrike is called ya know? Unless there are no airstrikes in COD6 in which case disregard this entire post.
Pick Up Grenades and Flashes
Makes good sense, you can pick up guns and ammo, why not flashes and nades?
Increase Running Speed Perk (not stamina)
A perk for being able to run faster. Would be nice for people who like to knife and use shotty.
Something after 7 kills
Personally I’d like to see one more thing, perhaps a nice little something at like 15 kills. It kind of sucks to get to 15+ in a row and have nothing to look forward to. Even something at 20 would be cool.
Previously discussed, self explanatory.
Control the heli + able to be killed while in the heli
“After you get a 7 kill streak and call your chopper you will be the one actually responsible for kills. You are the machine gunner. Your helicopter cannot be shot down but you can be shot off of the mounted machine gun. Once you are shot your helicopter flys away.” Idea pulled from this post on the forum.
There should be a little more customization to the characters than just weapons, everyone is different. I mean for each side (green and red) there should be certain outfits you can choose from. Or instead of doing that, have options for Clans to make their own uniform from head to toe. Example- You join a clan you gain options to have custom fittings for your character, and you unlock more as more of the people in the clan ranks get higher and higher, you get more options. And the Clan leader chooses the colors and symbol for the clan. Maybe you unlock more things as you reach a prestige.
Nobody uses it, it’s probably the most non-used and worthless perk there is. At least on PC, dunno about consoles. Just seems like a wasted slot where something better could be.
Laser Beam Sights
They have the beams in single player of COD4, dunno why they didn’t add it to MP too.
360 / PC / PS3 Compatible
I know, I know. Everyone is going to start screaming that it’s impossible, it’s not impossible and I’m sick of hearing that. There should be some sort of OPTION, so I can play with my friends across all platforms. I understand the mouse gives me an advantage, I understand my graphics card gives me an advantage. Like I said before, if we can send men to the moon I’m pretty sure we can give the players the ability to play with their buddies across platforms. If IW makes this happen I will buy all the devs hookers form the bunny ranch and have them shipped to the IW headquarters. Make it happen! I want to shoot my friends in the face and then teabag them! ;D
Better Sniper Zoom
A perk that allows the sniper rifle to zoom in 2X or maybe even 3X like in Counter Strike Source.
OK that’s all for tonight, I can’t sift through anymore of the ideas. I have 200 comments in the blog post and 14 pages on the forum. Maybe I’ll update this post again tomorrow.
It only took me 10 years, but I finally got it. Not too bad for only $40 huh? This is the company that did it for me, I just sent them what I wanted and they sent my banner back. My only complaint is that they put Call of Duty 6 in quotations, I asked them to remove the quotations and then it’s perfect. So by tomorrow sometimes I should have it up on the forum.

I figured there hasn’t been enough interaction on here so why not an open thread where people can make friends or find a clan?
Clans are almost always looking for new members, so if you’re looking to get some fresh meat in your clan post your clans information in the comments. Be sure to include important things like what platform you’re on (360, PC, PS3), your clans URL if you have one, how many members you currently have, ETC.
If you’re a player looking to join a clan, post your short resume. (skills, IM or Email, how long you have been playing, ETC)
Even if you’re just a player looking to add some new friends, post your friend ID for others to add.
Or talk about anything else you want. Also stop by the forums if you get a chance!
Someone started a thread called “Perk Ideas” on the forum which is actually pretty popular and active. It’s basically a free-for-all thread where people put the perks they would like to see, I must admit there are some decent ideas. Here’s some of the ideas from the thread:
- (Unknown Name): Decrease the spread of a shotgun to increase range.
- Law’s of Gravity: The ability to jump higher
- Two attachments on a gun rather than one (silencer/ACOG)
- Reduce recoil of weapon
- Whenever you are sniping you can see the sun glint off of other snipers scopes, would be nice for big sniping levels
- Monkey: ability to climb trees
I think silenced snipers would be awesome, climbing trees would also go very well with a silenced sniper. I think the maps need to be bigger as well, make it more strategy like where if you’re sniper class you actually have the ability to hide and snipe.
Personally I’d like to see martyrdom removed as a perk, most people would also have noob tube removed but it really doesn’t bother me all that much, if they are using the tube they are also giving up perk #1 which means no claymores, stuns, nades, or flashes. If you really think about it, claymores probably cause more deaths than the tube, at least in the S&D games.
Console / PC Multiplayer
Last but not least, why in the name of Christ can’t console and PCs play together online? I mean, really. We can send a man to the moon but we can’t play PS3/PC/360 together online?
I’m sure that I’m not the only one who has friends spread out across all three platforms and it would really be awesome if I could play with all of them at the same time. It would also settle the tired old argument about who is more skilled, console players of PC players…cough…PCers…cough…
We finally got the forum up, I know COD6 is a long way away, but there are already some members in the forum talking. Stop by and signup when you get a chance.
So the forum is now up. It’s empty right now except for my welcome post, I’ll start posting this weekend and add a new design/skin to it. I always hate when a forum is just starting out because I have to make multiple accounts and have convos with myself to attract members and traffic…really sucks. But whatever, keep checking back and eventually it will have members.
