What makes a good multiplayer
1. Lobby System- Most shooters today have matchmaking, but I think a lot of us are getting tired of the conveyer belt like system that just drops you here or there with kids or douches. You might get into a game thats good, but never see them again after. Lobbies create a tighter, better community that makes for a better online experience. (if you played old socom's you know what i mean)
2. Good Clan support- Call of Duty could be even more popular if they had clan support (rosters, leaders, etc.). It definitely adds a whole new aspect to the game and makes it more fun no doubt.
3. DLC- Need consistent downloadable content to keep the game alive online. Maps, weapons, or whatever, but something new every now and then is a must!
2k if you take your time and release a good game that works from the get go it would be awesome. There aren't many regular military tps games out, and if you make a good one like the old SOCOMS then you are bound for success!
All good points, also would be nice to see some sort of customization for the character and your gun. But yeah if anything a game should have lobbies and then a quickmatch system as well for those who just want to get in and play. Always have loved the clan system in the Socom series where you actually have rosters, clan leaders and liked what Confrontation did with adding in officers, and the ability to choose a clan patch and camoflauge for your armor.
Well designed maps around one mode per map. This ensures maps are designed with greater detail rather than being bland to accomodate multiple modes
Fast and fluent character movement. This is paramount.
Basically something resembling Socom 2, but in HD. lol
PTT not open mic...
seriously SOCOM 2 guts but with all the SOCOM 1-CA maps would nail it
LOBBIES LOBBIES LOBBIES you can describe it as a conveyor belt what we are getting these days but I call it the stupid cloud. Its all about gaming with your buds and making new friends. you start a room and then people who like the parameters of the game you set up start playing and next thing you know you just add clan members or friends. you can meet on a regular basis same bat time same bat channel.
Regarding XP and Rank. Who cares but if must matter make it work for CLANS only in a CLAN ladder system. Just give us the game and let us go to town.
We will gladly contribute for any copyright infringements on SOCOM!!!!
and regarding maps... realism not symmetry
