Moving to mw2tactics.net

Well, the title says it all. I’m moving this blog to mw2tactics.net. In fact, it’s already there. I won’t be updating here anymore (perhaps a feed with headlines from the new blog), but I won’t remove the content either. I’m thinking about adding a message to each post, so that everyone knows about it and is able to update any bookmark. See you at mw2tactics.net!

Infinity Ward vs. Activision?

As you might have noticed, I’ve moved this blog to mw2tactics.net. I hope to see you there!

Sources report that there’s a lot going on at IW, and that it’s not good. It seems there’s some contractual issues between IW and publisher Activision. Apparently there was security present at the IW building and apparently studio head Jason West is now unemployed, according to sources citing his Facebook.

For the details I recommend checking out one of my sources, but I will update you when major news comes out.

Playstation Network troubles (resolved)

As you might have noticed, I’ve moved this blog to mw2tactics.net. I hope to see you there!

There’s apparently a problem with PSN, which makes signing in impossible (and therefore MW2 multiplayer also). Some say it’s like a millennium-bug and that your Playstation thinks that it’s 02-29 instead of 03-01. Sony is aware. It seems only the older models are affected and the Slim ones are fine. To be clear: Sony made a statement that you should not use your PS3 until this is fixed (or if you have a Slim model).

UPDATE
The problem seems to be fixed. You can safely use your Playstation, although you might have to adjust the time manually. For more information you can look at this entry on the Playstation blog.

How to play defensively

As you might have noticed, I’ve moved this blog to mw2tactics.net. I hope to see you there!

In a a previous post, titled ‘Basic playing styles’ I distinguish roughly four playing styles: camping, playing defensively, playing stealthy and rushing. Now I’d like to share some thoughts about playing defensively. In my opinion, this type of playing style is often overlooked by players, not only because they will be called ‘camper’ but also because it requires some more patience and sometimes more thought. Read on to gather some tips on how to play defensively in the Modern Warfare 2 multiplayer.

Video: Vector & SPAS12 on Subbase (Domination)

As you might have noticed, I’ve moved this blog to mw2tactics.net. I hope to see you there!

This video by Krahu shows some nice gameplay on Subbase. I think a lot of people dislike Subbase, because it can be quite unpredictible, so you have to be more aggressive than usual. Notice how he switches to his secondary (shotgun) when he’s got enemies on very short range, and switches back to the primary when they are on longer range. This is a very good practice. Enjoy watching and visit his channel here.

Basic techniques

As you might have noticed, I’ve moved this blog to mw2tactics.net. I hope to see you there!

Here I give you some basic and slightly advanced tips and tricks. When you’re 100% comfortable with the basic controls, it’s time to expand. Here we go. Continue reading

Afghan tips

As you might have noticed, I’ve moved this blog to mw2tactics.net. I hope to see you there!

I thought it would be nice to start with the map guides on alphabetical order, with Afghan therefore being the first. Afghan is a pretty decent map. There are some chokepoints, there’s shelter from air-support and there are open spaces. I’ll try to show you some things on the map. It’s quite possible that you know most of it already, but there might be some things that you haven’t noticed yet.
