As I said, I went into MWO knowing it was an online game, despite my overall preference for for single-player. I was hardly expecting a full-fledged (or any) campaign; I knew what the game was about. However, if all you have are online games, then it's online games you play. But even with the best of intentions, MWO had little appeal to me. This was in direct comparison to MW:Living Legends which, although also an online-only game, was far more interesting.

And basically, if the majority of the game revolves around blowing up other players, even if there are nominal objectives, I call it deathmatch. And although I'm sure we could have fascinating arguments about semantics, nonetheless it essentially still is deathmatch, even if there are specific varieties now. Put in a co-op mode like Left4Dead and then I'll broaden my description of MWO or MW:LL but not before ;-)
