Anyone else play COD MW3? I'm really horrible now after not playing for so long.


I play MW3 religiously...like 5 hours a night when my girlfriend isnt around. KD 1.3 and my WL is around 2. Id give my gamertag but we both know the lag is gonna be epic from NJ to hawaii. Our coconut connection only really works with the western states.

That sucks. My KD is like 0.5 now. I have HDTV lag hardcore and just can't get around it.

Yeah the refresh rate on your tv is important, as well as your ping when playing. Avoid rooms over 100ms ping from your location...anything more is epic fail if you dont have host... But if you do have host, its the best perk in the game.

Just wanted to say that I synced my Card on Xbox live on Sunday (11/11) and also completed the requirements for unlocking the Best Buy offer that same day. the $10 credit appeared today and I got the email that my Best Buy offer went through today.

So it credits rather quickly - at least did for me.
AMEX: Blue Cash Preferred (6% on groceries, 3% gas & dept stores)
Capital One: Venture (2 points per $1, equivalent to 2%)
Chase: Freedom (rotating 5% categories), Disney Rewards (1 point per $1, Disney benefits)
US Bank: Cash+ (5% bookstores / 5% Electronic Stores)

Not worth it in my opinion, I refuse to sync my CC with Xbox because of the risk of online hacking on Xbox and/or Microsoft's Xbox servers being hacked. Look at what happened to PS3 users when Sony got hacked.

You're overreacting before reading the documentation and are wrong about your worries.

Microsoft does not get any of your credit card information.

From the FAQ:
Will my account information be shared with Microsoft?
No. American Express will not share any of your information with Microsoft.

https://sync.americanexpress.com/XBox/FAQ

The whole sync thing works where Microsoft sends back to Amex information about what deals you want to add to your card based on your GamerTag -- but your card information is never sent to Microsoft. It would be silly for Amex to work out all these Sync deals and send over your credit card information to each of their sync partners (like Microsoft, Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare).

So, if Xbox Live did get hacked, the worse thing that could happen is that the hacker could sign you up for discounts.
