MW3 players plan “blackout” movement to protest lack of support.

It's high time you remember who has the power Infinity Ward...
A proposed movement to “blackout” Modern Warfare 3's servers has gained momentum among the Call of Duty fanbase, with thousands of players pledging to refuse playing the game.
Disgruntled MW3 fans are planning to darken the game's servers on April 20th in protest over what they describe as a “broken” and “incomplete” game.
A litany of bugs and glitches have been discovered within the game since its release that arguably ruin the online multiplayer experience, but developers Infinity Ward have apparently failed to live up to players' expectations and address these issues in the few short months since its release.
The list of grievances fans have cited over the game include the need for lag compensation; fixes to the spawning system that would often see players respawning right behind enemies for an easy kill; better matchmaking options and game modes; improved leaderboards; and nerfs to some of the games more overpowered weapons, items and perks.
Fans are becoming more and more dissatisfied with Infinity Ward's lacklustre support in patching these problems, and many hope that the blackout movement will be a way for IW and publishers Activision to finally take notice of players' complaints.
