Please Get Prestige Mode for the PC!!!

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
OK, so after hearing my friends talk about how great COD4 is, I picked it up for the PC (I don't ahve an Xbox/PS3). One thing I really liked was the idea of Prestige mode. As I found out, the PC version HAS NO PRESTIGE MODE! I hear it's some bull**** about stats stored locally and not on IW servers. Well, that's just dandy. The biggest fan base including tons of mods and custom maps, and we miss out on, IMO, the best Multiplayer feature available! I'm starting a petition to get it on, mostly because I'm ticked and not because I think it'll work. Does anybody else share my thoughts? I'll update this post with a list every once and a while, I'm interested to see how many people care about this. Thanks OCN!

I think most people play the game for fun, not points. I'm a level 55 because of the length of time I have played the game, I didn't stop because I can't go any higher, I think this applies to 99% of COD4 gamers.

I play the game for fun as well, not points, but it it gives you something else to work towards. Infinity Ward made a great game, but it'd be nice to have something else to distinguish yourself and work towards. Just my opinion, and I made this thread partly because I want to know what you guys think. Thanks tUDJ for your opinion.

lol why would you ever want this? prestige mode is the dumbest idea I've ever heard of.

"well.... I just wasted approximately 20 days of my life getting level 55, and unlocking a bunch of things... yup.... finally got my gold shotgun..... alright.... well, time to start over then!"

its stupid man, its a waste of time and all you get in return is a shiny little icon next to your name.

Is that it? Does the prestige mode do anything else?

well basically as i play COD4 on ps3, everyones is always prestiging. I think you can prestige 10 times or something. Personally I've stuck at lvl55 and not chosen to go prestige yet. I've got all the upgrades and done most of the challenges so basically the only reason you'd want to go prestige is if you want a different logo by your username. aka instead of 5 stars at level 55, you can do go for the golden cross (highest prestige) which takes alot alot alot of time. It is kinda fun though for me, because i think levelling up and getting rewarded all the time is a lot of fun. It keeps me wanting to play and get that little bit higher or do that other challenge and being able to do that 10 times is fun to know. Even if it is essentially just a little logo next to your name. PC gamers on COD4 are missing out I have to say. Theres no reason why they shouldnt put it on the PC version. Seems silly to me.

I'd love for the stats to be stored online, it's only fair...
I think the challenges are great, I love the game regardless but it adds another dimension, forces you almost to see the upps and downs of all the modes \\ weaps and addons... it's quite nice

CoD4 for the PC did indeed get "screwed" out of a lot of extras...we have little-no clan support...no prestige modes...no leaderboards. But hey....we can keep wishing that the next patch (1.6) will give us everything we're missing out on...

so what? if you care about points so much, make a new character... I did it just to give me some kind of accomplishment & to use other weapons along the way compared to when I did it the first time.

Never realized how good I was w/ certain weapons and how much I suck with just about all the lower guns.
