We're less than two months away from the release of Electronic Arts' intense first person shooter Battlefield 3, and the excitement for the game is absolutely electric.  Now it's just a question of which version you want to buy -- PS3, PC or Xbox 360.  Well, if you're going the Xbox route, you've got quite a pick on your hands, but there's one thing you might want to know about first when it comes to the game's formatting...


We've seen some gutsy moves when it comes to promotion, but Electronic Arts is really stepping up.  Over the past few weeks, the company has been pushing Battlefield 3 something fierce, which has led to a boost in pre-orders -- even beyond its greatest competition, the supposedly unstoppable Modern Warfare 3.  But today, we saw a bold move that we didn't even see coming -- a website redirection that has no doubt left a few at Activision feeling a cold burn.

This upcoming holiday season will be hosting an interesting battle taking place between two of the biggest franchises in video games: Call of Duty and Battlefield. At E3 this past June, John Riccitiello, CEO of Electronic Arts, took some shots at the Call of Duty franchise, boasting that Battlefield has what it takes to usurp the throne that Call of Duty currently sits on.

With all of this in place, just what does Modern Warfare 3 need to do in order to win the rivalry?

There is no "I" in team. If a team wins, it's the whole team's effort that makes it happen. The same applies to losing. Everyone loses on a team and not just one person. Then again, some people can do a lot to drag a team down to the point it's very hard to overcome. I'm here to share with you 5 people I believe who prove to the be the least bit helpful when playing online in the shooters that are out there today. If you see any of these on your team, avoid them like the plague!
