Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Forum  /  Changing IL timing (Locked)
  KloogerKlooger

I guess this is basically a petition to change the IL timing from the mess that it currently is, to timing from one load till the next, like is done in full runs.

Kinda curious what peoples opinions are on this, how many are in favor of this being a thing? The only real downside imo is the amount of re-timing effort required.

Announcements tab on the discord is used for things like this, not the forums

Well this isn't exactly an announcement is it? And it has been discussed informally on and off in the discord recently, plus as you know there are certain people who would see forum posts here, and not see discussions happening in the discord server.
I'm just really curious to see if anyone disagrees here and this is a good place to solidify those arguments and come back to them for future discussions.

If you acknowledge in the past the change has been requested, and has been passed before. However, from my past knowledge survivor was the one who was supposed to change the IL method so. The timing method has been officially changed, but never put into action. So I would request him or another mod to change it to the correct method; or, I can get to it soon.
However, I would talk to him about it as it's been like 3 months since we discussed it

This might upset some of the OG runners, but for me, as a newish runner of the game - I personally would love to see ILs be timed from the start of the level, for every single level. I also wouldn’t mind if we started the full any% runs at 0 instead of (-X.XX) tbh.

Couple of reasons:
1. In a full game run, when you get a fast lvl completion time you would no longer have to subtract whatever the IL start time difference is from your time in the any% run. You’d know right away what your time is for that lvl.

2. Removes the confusion, and need for quick maths :>

When I first started running COD4, I was honestly super confused by the -X.XX timer people were using in their runs, and some runners would also argue that -2.45 was inaccurate and should be something different.
- If it takes everyone the same amount of time to take control of their character, why not just start the timer when you start the run?

As someone who doesn’t really grind for IL times, I don’t have the biggest horse in this race. Just wanted to share my thoughts.
