For the Best Troll, Go to ModernWarfare3.com
Go ahead, try it.
Ok I’ve done some research on this and found some interesting things. First off, the redirect doesn’t appear to be the work of Electronic Arts. If you look at a cached version of the website, you’ll find a page with this text:
Modern Warfare is crap. On November 8, 2011, the most over-hyped first-person action series of all-time returns with the copy and paste sequel to the lackluster Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Check out the E3 2011 gameplay demo featuring the Black Tuesday level for a look at the epic fail of the campaign. Pre-Order Call of Duty MW3 Today for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC to secure exclusive bonuses only available online for Modern Warfare 3 fanboys who don’t know that Battlefield 3 is the better game.
More direct, it states that “Modern Warfare 3 .com is a 100% unofficial fan site dedicated to the Modern Warfare series. IF you haven’t figured it out yet, this site is a parody of Modern Warfare 3″ in the text in the bottom of the page.
Odds are someone swooped the domain before Modern Warfare 3 was a reality and is now using it to troll to maximum efficiency.
Also the website used to embed this video, which is awesome:

Although even that video denies any connection to ModernWarfare3.com, with the following annotation text:
I DID NOT CREATE MODERNWARFARE3.COM. I don’t know who the fuck decided to feature my video on there, but that website is not mine. Also note that I’m not a fan of Battlefield 3 and I think it looks generic as well, with the saving grace that it actually has effort put into it. Glad I could help.
It’s a fine day for trolling, my friends.
