So, I changed and "adapted," and just flat out camp now. My SPM is below 100 (LOL) and I don't care anymore. I found the power positions for maps, and I exploit them. I go 33-3, 15-2, etc. most games since I just camp. I finished a game on Arklov Domination where i joined where it was already underway. I went 20-2 and almost called in my Chopper Gunner but ran out of time. People after the match (during killcam) were pissed! "You were just camping at the bar!" they said over and over, and I replied, "I don't care." Hahahahaha! PKM, claymores and shotguns. I now love Piccadilly since I just camp and exploit the shitty spawns. I had games where 2-3 enemies were rushing me out of sheer irritation since I was camping in the sneaker shop. LOL!

This. Death threats are big no-no. But people being outraged? Perfectly understandable since they paid for a product, and the people who sold it, can't even be assed to reply. If this was a car, and you bought it, and you asked something about it that might impact you or is impacting you, you can get sued for not replying. If it was a "fake" statement, then just outright say it when it blew up. Tons of sites reported on it (I know I did and it gained traction), and yet, what did they do? Ashton Williams even milked it by tweeting that "big" update that everyone is looking forward to thing. I mean, this made people jump up and down, and for what? Nothing. Even if they are not overhauling the game, which I still believe they will at some point in 2020 given how many people are dropping the game, Joe Condrey should still address the community. if not him, then hire someone who can. If you're scared of hate comments, then deactivate comments on your blog post. Voila! Or the endless crashing issues PC players have experienced. I've seen die-hard YTers just flat out drop the game. Xclusive Ace, which does COD vids entirely, has mentioned he only plays Ground War now. Imagine that. A person who literally makes his living off COD, stopped playing the main modes since it's so frustrating. I play the game since I still somewhat enjoy it and just camp so I can enjoy it, and I need to follow it for work, but I understand where all the hate and frustration is coming from. This is a big studio that refuses to communicate with their playerbase unless it's a positive tweet, comment, etc.

Not sure if anyone saw this: But yeah, I just played a match now and this guy (Chinese clan tag) had the name "Madajo" acted suspiciously the same. He knew exactly where I was and jumped to the exact corner. Watched the kill cam and he didn't even hesitate where to go. I was prone and not even moving to not make a sound. Next life, was going to shoot him through the arcades in Piccaddilly, befre I even got the chance, and fired, he crouched away. Insane ESP of this dude. Anyone else experience the one above? It's not aimbots but definitely some kind of wallhack.

Same. Whenever I die from suspicious deaths, I watch the killcam. Usually, it's just dumb luck, but sometimes, it's super baffling like someone just knew where you were or where to throw grenades.I turned it off for now.C'mon, man. You can clearly see the shooter just go and turn to the side and they have no business knowing someone was there. Footsteps were out of range. You can see him tracking the enemy running. He just magically knew he was there? This isn't just a spawn exit. Grazna Raid has multiple spots for spawns on C, and this dude magically knew when to turn at that moment?

LOL! Yes! I remember when I was complaining about visibility in BF5 and the LMG prone players were just "LOL noob need help" or something. And then people find their profile, yep, MMG prone peeps. Yep, agreed. You can't do this to the gaming community and expect them to NOT remember it in the future. IW's communication for the game has been super terrible, that I honestly don't even know what their Community Manager does.

What's infuriating to me is, Infinity Ward has ALL the stuff to make possibly one of the best COD MPs ever (no hyperbole). No Supply Drops, free maps, crossplay, gunplay is solid, etc. All sunk in by stubborness. Some have suggested that they make a "noob room" if they're scared that newbies will not play after being stomped, and I agree. Crysis did it before, and it kinda worked then. I think what gets me the most is the enemy visibility issue. I died three times in Hackneye Yard today since I kept going back to the same spot just to see if I can spot that person who killed me. All three times? Nope. He was covered by shadow in one of the awnings or something. Just insane. I can handle SBMM, i can handle that every match I play is at 50-75ms (I'm in Asia(, but the enemy visibility is what gets me. Add in that there's no red dots, super camping meta, and it's just a recipe for disaster. I usually play COD (outside of work) to have fun, but I find that I don't even have that and just hate myself for playing it.Yes. COD YouTuber Xclusive Ace proved this. You're basically graded every five matches, and when you do well, you're going to be put in a lobby that will make your balls sweat (not in a good way).This is honestly baffling to me. I mean, if a car salesman sold a fleet to a company and didn't return calls, we'd get lawsuits. IW just flat out left the subreddit, and only answers tech questions on Twitter. Oh, of course they acknowledge any positive stuff tweeted at them, too. We just want confirmation or acknowledgement. You know those times when your pay gets delayed and the HR peeps have an update of "no update?" That's way better than being ignored. I don't blame the subreddit for being super negative now.Gunplay in this is solid. I actually like it a lot. TTK is fine with me too. Euphrates Bridge is my most hated map ever. Even when we win, I feel like a cheater since I camp the enemy's spawn with a sniper. That shit is insane. I have no clue how that got past game testing. Tavorsk in Ground War is super broken too. There's this building for the A side that if you camp, you can see people literally spawn on the firehouse thing. Me and the squad I was with just picked them off, and I gather, some of them quit. We unleashed streak after streak, and I feel for them since we did it not by skill, but by exploiting the game.

That's what the subreddit is saying now, too. You can release all the free content you want, but if the core gameplay is messed up, it won't make much of a difference. There's going to a new patch for this next week for sure, but I doubt it will change anything big since IW seems to be sticking to their guns, and whatnot. I am just sad that it's another 11 months before a new COD comes in and replaces this one. :(

LOL! $600m, brah! They don't need to communicate. Well, maybe to the bank and swim in their $$$$. Just played three straight infuriating matches. Entire team won't go after Euphrates Bridge B flag. All are friggin' sniping at the start. Fucking stupid gameplay design by IW, compounded by bad maps, and voila! Shit City. When you're on C, you spawn at this gated part where it takes ages to go near the middle area and of course, you'll get sniped. Just terrible map design. I hope no one forgets how bad Modern Warfare is, and when this Cecot guy is back for the next one, everyone grills him for ghosting the community, and have him explain his gameplay decisions.

I think Treyarch has the common sense to know when the community is outraged. Even pros are outraged at MW. But then again, stranger things have happened.Yeah. They only reply to tech issues now. Subreddit is full of "please reply k tnx bye" threads and I don't blame them. This is the worst way to communicate. Just say you're doing nothing, doing something but it's taking time? Anything is better than being silent.Same. In Asia and find myself getting matched to non-region players. I don't think it's SBMM, but rather, not a lot of people playing. My friends list only has 2-3 playing at a time. My friends who play COD every year aren't even playing most of the time and not even level 50. Sigh.

Judging from data files, yes. LOL!People have a right to complain about stuff they bought, especailly games. I'm 38, played almost every COD, and while I usually have something to complain about in any shooter/game, MW takes the cake. Again, I've said this countless times, if Reddit, YouTubers, Twitter, forums, etc. all have the same complaints, maybe -- just maybe --there realy is somethingThis. My friends list only have 3-4 people playing MW every single time, which is insane. My friends list most consist of bro gamers. There are literally 10-15 playing COD or BF at any single time. Also, my friends who I play COD with every year? They're only at level 30-40+ now. Shows how much they don't care anymore. These are people who go after prestiges etc.

Someone on the subreddit posted that IW should post a "State of the Game" thing like Ubi does for The Division. I mean, it would be a safe space (turn off comments if you want) to relay key points, what's being worked on, etc. Not this vague thing that's making everyone more upset.I mentioned this before too. Not a very good look for IW. They were super active before, and then just disappeared after that $$$ announcement made by Acti. Now they can't even be assed to reply at anything. It feels scummy and definitely adds to the toxicity of the subreddit/I said it before that maybe this is another Michael Condrey/WW2 situation? Maybe the lead dev is just adamant in the direction they want for MP in this game, and just won't budge. In WW2, they only managed to do an overhaul when Condrey was "promoted" (promoted to Acti managerial side and then let go quietly), and a new studio head stepped in.

Stop caring. My W/L is now at .8 and I don't care. I quit out on games where I see teammates just camping and not going after flags, or etc. This won't change until scorestreaks are brought back in, which might not happen. My advice? Just leave them be and quit when they piss you off. That W/L doesn't amount to anything. Much like SPM. It does in BF, but here? I don't even care.

Yeah, surprised at this too. Stopping Power can't be a perk or everyone will use it, no? Unless they make it useless? Perks are fine for me to be honest. Dead Silence can stay as a Field Upgrade if they lower the crouched walking sound or walking sound? Overkill is fine with me too. Past CODs had it and it wasn't really OP. It's OP now since the weapon balancing is whack. Haha! I do agree that Perk slots should maybe be switched so other Perk tiers can get some love too.

This should help the camping problem a lot. That said, people can and will use silencers. But there's teh ADS tradeoff so there's that at least/I run this usually and I swear, sometimes it bugs out and I can't see the outlines at all. It got so frustrating that I just swapped it with Battle Hardened.TheGameRev said it's coming "end of November." I hope his leak is correct. :) Now, at least campers will give away their spots when they're hiding. I just have to battle the visibility issues. LOL!The perks placements are weird too. Most of the strong ones are in Perk 2 (Ghost, Restock). I also miss Lightweight and that one which lets you run while reloading, and a bunch of other stuff. If rumors are true, IW will release perks as free DLC, so it might be a case of saving those as free content. On another note: I experienced a pretty annoying bug. Was on Piccadilly, managed to earn a Sentry Turret, got flashbanged while setting it down, thankfully, I didn't die but the Sentry won't deploy, I can't switch weapons and essentially sitting there waiting to be killed. Sigh. I had a VTOL and Chopper Gunner next and it was so annoying, I just quit. :(

I saw this and cringed a little. But then again, shouldn't expect much from COD when it comes to servers. So, apparently, quitting when a match starts in Euphrates Bridge is a thing now? I had like four matches there today where players didn't even wait for the pub stomp. It was 1-0 and someone quit. Another game, match started, two people quit and so on. I don't see this even on Piccadilly but on that Bridge map? I see it often. I don't think I've seen people do this in any COD map ever. Maybe during the early life of Rust or Nuketown maybe? But never this way. Wow. That said, I don't blame them. It's such a poorly designed map that I wonder how no one on the staff mentioned it. "Um, maybe putting a flag where snipers can kill the capper when they're at their base is a good thing." My biggest want for the "big update" is to have the lighting fixed. I kinda want the red dots to be back too just to lessen the camping, but I can live without them. I do want a way to spot or notify teammates where enemies are though.

Yes, exactly. It's like it wants to be Siege for competitive, Battlefield in scope, but the devs don't know exactly what the game's identity needs to be. Sigh.LOL!Yes, there is a server-side patch (which I said but you chose to ignore), but it's usually conveyed clearly that it IS a server-side patch. That wasn't specific in her tweet, Reddit post, etc. If there's no download needed, it is usually said. Epic does it, Bungie does, DICE does, etc. The fact that people NEED to ask her if it's a client or server-side patch is proof of this. That's rarely asked since that info is usually given even without patch notes.

It's not a "patch" but a hotfix (server-side).Sigh. Someone should educate her and tell her that a "patch" usualy (like 9/10) means an actual download, while a server-side hotfix is usually addressed as that -- server-side hotfix. I don't think I've seen a server-side update be referred to as a patch. Yeah, spot-on observations, which is what everyone is saying as well. Thing is, COD has always been about arcade-y, fast gun-fu shit. IW changed that along with a ton of other inane gameplay design decisions that make ZERO sense.

My home net conked out on me for 4-5 days, and I tried playing again today. YUCK! This game is just, trash tier. I tried using other weapons jus sto I can distance myself from the M4 and 725, and yep, you'll have a worse time. At this stage, it's clear IW has no intention of fixing footsteps or making the game less camp friendly. I've seen YouTubers state that they have a hunch player counts are drying up since they keep seeing the same people over and over again in matches, and I wouldn't be surprised. This is the worst Call of Duty MP I have ever played. I'm kinda glad that we get three years before we see another Infinity Ward-developed COD game. I hope the lead devs here aren't the leads then. I mean, I still go positive and shit, but I just camp and play super slow. I don't want to spend my free time turtling all the friggin' time. Inane game design coupled with bad spawns, and bad map designs. Not even listing the gun balance issues and tech problems this game has, and it's still terrible. When COD YTers almost all universally agree that the game is crap, you know something's up. You got Ace and the other YTers outright stating they can't play the regular modes since it's just not fun, and well, you got a problem. I know, I know, these are all stuff everyone here has said before. Just couldn't believe how cringe worthy the gameplay is after not playing for four days. I thought I'd love it more, but nope. Just exposed me to how terrible the game is. LOL!

Overall, the maps are some of the worst. I mean, if you lump them together, they are the worst bunch in any recent COD. -------- As a whole, the game needs a lot of work. I just finished a round of Ground War going 39-6. I spammed the tanks or sniped. I finished with close to 6K score and was number one on our team. That Farmland map is just a tank's haven. I just spammed the cannons and I know I was being a dick to these people. I mean, sure, I do well, but it's mostly due to exploiting the game and not because of skill. My tank skills in Battlefield are good. Here? Not so much but rather just because it's super easy to hit people with the cannon. Speaking, imagine if you could reload your tank's missiles or repair them. That would be insanely OP.

I mean, even Acti's projections for this game were not super high, meaning they expected it to not sell as much as Treyarch's given the trend. Treyarch's CODs are usually the best-selling ones. We got $600M in three days, not sure what happened after. Would also love to see how many got refunds, player base numbers. etc. I have a sneaking feeling that it's not super high as in past CODs. MW2R would be tits, though. LOL!

Because at its current state, it's dogshit? Maps are bad, spawns are bad, weapon balance are bad, perks are bad, need I go on? It's like what others have said: Infinity Ward has devolutionized years of FPS gameplay mechanics learning.Yep. Sigh. Just insane.I don't want to play GW since it just devolves into snipe-fests, but what can I do? I don't enjoy the traditional 6v6 mode too. I just played a match where the entire team was screaming at the spawns and how bad it is. I felt bad for them to be honest. Exactly! It's like someone at IW thought "Gee, I wonder what would happen if we make everything slower, take out whatever it is we learned from past games and just implement new gameplay ideas without checking to see why they're like that in the first place." And we have this Frankenstein-like game that NO ONE asked for.I did but it wasn't this bad. If I knew then that it was like this, I'd have voiced out a long time ago.Whenever that happens, I feel bad. I know we're doing this because the game is broken and I feel for the enemy team. It's like, it's not their fault that the game is terrible in the most basic ways. There are bad spawns, and there are Modern Warfare 2019-level bad spawns. I check the COD YTers and literally almost 90 percent of them are shitting on this game. I doubt Infinity Ward will listen. It's when the pros whine though, that's when they do since they can't cost Activision that MLG money. Pros complaining about footsteps? Yep, insta-"we're taking a look at that." Dead Silence? Same thing. Yeesh. It's as if regular gamers didn't have a hand in making the game sell well. I'm telling you, if this doesn't get fixed soon, this game will die before January 2020. I have friends (anecdotal but still) who play COD all the damn time whenever it comes out, but not MW. They stopped at level 30+ and were complaining about the same shit (spawns, map design, etc.).

They already got $600M, man. This has been the most disgusting display of communications from a dev/studio I have ever seen (outside of BioWare and Anthem). I said it before, the only way they will talk or respond is if people stop playing their game (like a massive drop off in player numbers), or a class action lawsuit (if the tech issues are rampant enough, that will be enough to get the ball rolling).Don't forget, the "overhaul" thing is still a rumor. Infinity Ward can just leave it as is and continue making tweaks. I really cannot see myself playing past November. I'm at level 56. I just played 5-8 matches now and half of those I quit out of frustration since I was put in games with lopsided scores and I joined a match in progress, one was Picadilly already spawn trapped (and of course I spawn in the A flag since I always do), another was Azhir Caves where it was 4x6, and so on. This is the only COD game where the longer I play, the lower my KD and WL becomes. It's insane. There is no learning curve to speak of. It's just a matter of who headglitches first, who has the better cover, who can spot people from the textures, etc. Whenever I play this game, I literally want to punch someone since it's so stupidly designed that I hope IW's next game flops because of this. This is how shit this game is. My long-time friends that play COD? They only played until level 30, and just outright quit. Now I'm alone, stuck playing this shit game and have to remember we have to wait 12 more months for a new COD to replace this mess.It's a rumor and no one knows really. Given how stupid the MP lead dev is in Modern Warfare, I wouldn't get my hopes up. He only makes changes for the pro scene. Watch his Twitter, and see how he reacts to pros. Clearly, that's a big concern since at this point, pros are very vocal in NOT wanting to play this in tournaments, and that would mean lost revenue, which means this dude can lose his job. As it should. Maybe that will teach IW a lesson and that will make that Cecot guy not ever make a COD game ever again. Everyone wins when that happens.See?! You're not a game dev but these are changes EVERYONE is asking for. It's like IW just forgot that there were other shooters out there and didn't implement their changes. It's like they hated Treyarch and wanted to stray as far away as possible from their game design just as a big "fuck you" to them.Perks selection here is shit. All the best ones are in tier 2, and no one knows why. Tier 3 is shit. Again, baffling game design.Check Cecot's Twitter, he justifies this OP shotgun. I mean, really. People there jumping on him since he's fucking defending its range. There's realism, and good game design. You can't compromise good game design just because you think something should be realistic. Is it realistic riot shields can take on hails of bullets and not even crack? Same. SBMM is the least of the worries IW should be taking on right now. Every COD game has SBMM baked in some form or another. I'd rather get sweaty lobbies and die because someone is better than me, than dying repeatedly due to someone getting to a position faster than I did. That is insane game logic. "Power position" taken to another level, and good luck trying to flush them out. I had a match in Dom on Picadilly where me and another dude managed to get into the sneaker shop first, we were there the entire match. I think I went 17-1 using claymores. We both took turns guarding the stairs, etc. It's insane how stupid the game is. I really want to start a petition to get that Cecot guy off this game since it's clear he's part of the big problem, and we won't see changes until after he's gone.

Yep. Same. I'm at level 55 now. Waiting on one more patch and if it's clear IW has no intention of making things better for non-campers, then I'm dropping this. They can go cater to the newbies, and let's see how long those people stay. The perks system here is a joke. ALL the best ones are at perk 2, and there's no reason for it. The have a bunch of useless perks that no one will ever use (Tune Up for one), and took out Lightweight, Dexterity and everything that helped people move and aim faster. The entire "new game engine" argument really doesn't apply here since what he's referring to are gameplay decisions not tech-related ones. :)Learn to adapt, brah!11 bE TAtc1al!!

You don't. You camp and just go for kills. Otherwise, prepare to be mowed down by rooftop campers. There is NO point in going after objectives since it doesn't reward you anyway. The amount of stupidity in this game is really irritating me to the point that I want to punch someone in the face for being this stupid. I mean it. This is the stupidest multiplayer game that I'm sad to say sold a ton of copies. A travesty.I have this theory that those who defend this shit of a game are those who either don't play COD regularly, or do bad in 'em. Now, they can finally say they're good at a COD game even if that means going 5-2 an entire match. Can we all remember to friggin' grill that Joe Cecot guy when IW announces their next COD game? I swear, that dude is happy with the camping and has NEVER mentioned that the game's pace is an issue or that his game is just full-on camper city. Even Robert Bowling (former IW dude) pointed out how these asshats are using "Endless places to hide" as a selling point. [/QUOTE]

I honestly want a petition for this to happen and I will pay $100 to see it; IW can give the money to charity. Any takers? If so, let's get this ball rolling and see what IW has to say.It's like the MP design director just wanted to throw away years of shooter evolution.It got good when Condrey was fired from his post and I seem to remember that some devs didn't directly say it, but hinted that it was Condrey who was stubbornly holding on to his gameplay ideas.

They won't. This has been a complaint since the beta. Nothing happened. I play in front of a 65-inch 4K TV and I have a hard time seeing enemies. I chalked it up to poor eyesight and colorblindness, but my friend who has perfect vision also said the same thing. He can't see shit. Friggin' devs can't even do this correctly.I run claymores primarily and feel they're OP. Blast radius is too wide, you can die even if you're not in the laser radius, and I think even from the sides. I got a 22-killstreak going mostly with claymores. I take it you didn't like the past CODs? If so, I understand why you like this. Longtime COD players (COD4 onwards), like me? Yeah, we hate it. This promotes camping and super slow movement and that's it. It heavily punishes those who move hence why you see matches end via time limit instead of score (which is insane to see in TDM matches). Attachments, footsteps, sprint speed, ADS time, etc. all promote a slower playstyle. I'm fine with the devs wanting to keep camping stuff in to help less experienced players, but not at the expense of those who want to run 'n' gun. Man, I have been playing Call of Duty and talking about issues that need to be fixed about it on the net for a very long time, and this is the most noise I have ever heard about very specific issues in the game, in particular the map design and the OP weapons (725, claymore and M4). Even the akimbo shotguns of MW2 didn't kick up as much of a stink as this. Infinity Ward will have to act quickly. Those issues alone deserve their own patch at this point, it would be well received at least. There's noise because it's shit. This is the shittiest COD game I've ever played. It's like the devs don't know their own fanbase. If I wanted to play something slower, I'd play Siege. If I wanted large scale warfare that's not half baked, I'd play Battlefield. This reminds me of Homefront multiplayer. I've said it before, if anyone from Infinity Ward posts or visits here, I will pay actual real money to watch them play. Heck, have them do it and donate the earnings to charity. Only caveat is they need to play in random matches and not be in a squad. I really, really want to see them do well and how they deal with the shit spawns, shit maps, shit weapon balance, and overall camping. Mind, I still have a positive K/D and I'm pissed. Imagine those who go 2.5 K/D in past CODs who go negative here. Holy crap! This! So much this. Same reaction as I have. I said this before, if Reddit, YouTubers, Twitter, forums (such as this one) ALL have the same sentiments (majority), then maybe -- just maybe -- something is wrong. Can you link me to your review? I didn't review it on my site, but someone else did and gave it an 8.5 (liked campaign, even MP). I said I'd give this a 6.5 or 7 if this was me since MP was the big thing about COD and this one clearly fails in almost every aspect. This game promotes a passive playstyle and NOT going after objectives. It's like that Joe Cecot guy decided to devolve shooters and used the biggest franchise in gaming to do it on. Thing is, the only way IW will listen is if their player base dwindles. They already sold a fuckton, so complaints will go on deaf ears (remember COD: WWII?) until shit hits the fan and everyone stops playing, and they know they need to fix it lest their game dies fast.My take? Their lead game MP designer isn't a vet of COD games. I dunno. There's no way this is an old school IW dev and can fuck things up this bad.I never thought of this but yeah, makes sense. No. We (longtime fans) just wanted boots on ground COD MP. You can't just forget the years of evolution shooters had just because you're going back to standard modern settings.

I agree. It's a few patches away from being good or great, but it doesn't feel or seem like IW wants to change it. I mean, they've made no mention of it at all. So maybe they're happy with it? The only time devs do anything drastic is when players stop playing.I hope you do! It's insane that even after all this time, it's still crashing. This is a full-fledged, AAA product. This shit shouldn't be happening.Nah, you're not. It's super bloated and like, half of them do the same exact thing. Every good attachment is meant to slow down ADS speed or movement speed, which means it's a conscious design decision by IW to slow the pace, so noobies won't get trashed. Gunsmith is amazing, but how it translates to gameplay? Nah. You can't even test scopes and such without entering an actual match.

Well, it seems Reset is on the same plane as Twitter, Reddit and almost everyone else: this game's MP is shit. I've been playing and reviewing games for a long time (I'm 38), and I am extremely baffled by some of Infinity Ward's design decisions here. This is, by far, the worst Call of Duty MP game I've ever played. Maps? Terrible. Spawns? Supremely broken. Balance? 725 wants a chat. Gameplay? Go pitch a tent and be tactical, noob! Not even counting the numerous tech issues this game has. Don't get me wrong, the game has good qualities. I think Gunfight is a good mode, gunplay is good, Gunsmith is amazing, but it's all forgotten given how just outright inane the design decision is, that I have to wonder if the lead MP director has ever designed an MP game before. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this is his first time. Worst thing of all? Infinity Ward has literally stopped replying on the MW subreddit after earning $600M in three days. Sure, they will reply to tech issues, but gameplay? Nah. A simple "we are looking into the data and will change the footsteps, and camping meta in an upcoming update" or a "we are happy with the player data and will be making some weapon changes, but the pace is something we're happy with." would do wonders for communication, but nope. I feel bad for people who bought this digitally and can't sell it.

I don't know what it is, but every game I join now has this weird stuttering that's seriously jarring. It's like a split second lag that happens every few seconds (PS4 Pro here), and just makes me not want to play at all. I did the HQ fix and it's still there. Unless I have to do it every time I enter a match. I don't even load HQ anymore. COD: WWII is just outright terrible in terms of technical competency. HQ is broken (it's still not fixed for everyone), Quick Draw still not fixed (bugs from the friggin' beta aren't fixed), server issues, matchmaking issues, and just a litany of technical sloppiness that I find it hard to believe it took them three years to make this. Imagine if they had a new game engine, new IP, new core gameplay mechanic...we'd barely be able to load the game at all. There's a certain love-hate with every COD game, but for WWII, my patience is almost spent and it's just a month in. I'd rather download BO3 again than deal with technical issues that take weeks to get resolved, and when a new patch is rolled out, a new mess of shit is introduced. SHG seriously needs a better QA and cert team, and maybe a proper Community Manager.

Sledgehammer has said to have rolled out a "tuning adjustment" to global flinch just now. "Post launch game updates are uniquely complex, and delicate. #CODWWII is a feature heavy game, and we have several hundred developers actively making fixes and incorporating community feedback. Yet, when launching to many millions of players across the globe (under highly varied home network infrastructures), stability is always a priority for us. Part of our process is a rigorous QA testing phase. In addition, there are first party protocols for how updates get safely propagated to players. For fans, that means you are generally seeing changes several days or weeks after we’ve implemented them in the development environment at Sledgehammer Games. Rest assured, that doesn’t mean we aren’t working incredibly hard or fast to address feedback. It just means that there is sometimes a delay between the time we make the change at the studio and the time we can communicate it, and see it rolled out to the live community. We have plenty of changes in coming updates, including the start of Ranked Play Season One: The Placement Season, beginning (tomorrow) December 1, 2017. We look forward to sharing more soon. In the mean time, please keep the constructive feedback coming. And thanks for your continued support!: Anyone notice anything? It's not a patch, so a server-side fix?

Hate to be "that" guy, but I really want to know what SHG's priorities are when it comes to fixes. BAR gets nerfed, fine. But nerf Primed too? Why? I don't use it, but I understand why people do given the flinch in this game seems to stem from the devs' amount of coffee consumed after every complaint. Introduce a bunch of new, game-breaking bugs in Division Prestige glitch (it can freeze the entire game client), and HQ on PS4 (there's a fix, but there shouldn't be one). Michael Condrey, head of SHG, getting ridiculed on Twitter with people calling him #Dom50 and 3/1000 given his Twitter statements. Speaking of, he STILL only replies to YouTubers and not, y'know, actual customers who made the game $500m in revenue. Kinda getting tired of it at this point. I still can't get into any kind of match, and I have no clue why. Worse thing here is, I don't think SHG knows what to do, exactly. Introduce Ranked Play but your game is broken? Yeah, not really a good sight to see. HQ, which is supposed to be one of the game's biggest new features still DO NOT work properly almost a month after launch. Just a litany of bugs, puzzling gameplay design decisions. When COD YouTubers are turning against you, you know there's something super wrong with your direction. At this point, I have to ask: What did SHG do right aside from going boots to the ground? Maps? Gunplay? Gun balance? Innovation? Curious to know what everyone thinks.

Thread Call of Duty: WWII |OT| Loot's on the ground
Agree with all of these. Gun balance is OK, in the grand scheme of things, I think. Maps aren't that well made and compounded by only nine being available for all modes. Possibly making all these worse is how SHG has bee uncommunicative in all of this. They should hire a Community Manager and not have Michael Condrey be the "voice" since he has an attitude of being a pompous dick at times, which is not something you want your player base to feel. If you're enforcing something, tell players why, show proof, explain, etc. Domination kills being 50 still is proof of this. Thank god Treyarch is next. I'm fine with Pick 10 coming back. Imagine boots on the ground with Treyarch-level customization and polish? I don't remember BO3 being anywhere this bad at launch.

Not worth it. I did it once, and nope, never doing that again. I still can't wrap my head around domination kills being 50 per. I mean, they said they'd change it to 100 but what happened? Before, when my idiot teammates didn't do anything, I can storm enemy flags since I had scorestreaks. Now? Nah. I started the game 7-0 and was in the enemy flag. If I had a UAV by then, I could have gotten the enemy flag alone. But nope. Had to kill as many as I can before running out of ammo. Speaking of, who's genius was it to have launchers as part of Basic Training? No one uses launchers since they take up valuable space. I swear, SHG shook things up just to say they're different. There's no reason in changing stuff that works.

Just finishing this for review and then BFII for me. I want to review it with the opinion of how it will be playable moving forward. It's been 10 days, so if it still doesn't improve, will base that on the crappy launch servers, etc.PS4! I was so shocked I completely forgot about it. The dude was twirling about and had half his body phase through the ground! I wasn't sure if it was a hacker or something. Haha!I agree for the most part. The core game is solid, but the maps feel like they were made by someone who intentionally didn't want to copy Treyarch, and yet they did, no? Gun fights are weird as well. I sometimes feel the ping meters are lying. I shred people with one bar, and sometimes die like butter with three. I also sometimes get kills that I think shouldn't have been, which I attribute to server woes or something. HQ is a good idea in concept (lookit me! I can do what Destiny does!) but flawed in execution. Almost everyone thinks it's useless, another step you need to take to play the game, and so on. Clearly SHG thought people would flock to it like Destiny 2's Farm, but different beasts and all that. Also, I'm quite certain it needs to load after every match hence the delay, which pisses off people more than anything. They should have let people bypass HQ if they wanted to. Divisions are flawed. I only see three being used: Airborne (silencers are god-like), Infantry and the wookie class. LMG class gets shafted. I know some of you aren't fan of the Pick-10 system, but I am. If SHG wanted to be different, they could have done so without limiting how people wanted to play. Minor thing, but I hate how progression is in the game. I prestiged once, and I feel I already saw everything the game has to offer. Gun grips are lame, Calling Cards are OK, and that's it. Might not even Prestige 2. My main draw before was having as much class slots as I can get so I can go crazy with different loadouts. In WWII, I don't need to. Well, except maybe for War. So we have two games from SHG now. What tier are they in the COD hill? I peg Treyarch as the top dog, and the two fighting for second place. Thank god we have Treyarch next year. At least Vonderhaar engages with fans on Twitter and hints at upcoming changes, etc (even non-YouTubers).

It's not just you, but an issue with the game (one of many).Yep, agreed. Again, it shows how SHG isn't really used to making multiplayer games.

I think the main things that I don't like about MP is how "amateur-ish" (for lack of a better term), some gameplay decisions are. Operation Neptune: If you crossed the enemy lines, when you die, you should be closer to the objectives (initial ones), not start all the way at the back. - This map and mode clearly highlights how short sprint time is, and it's keeping it "boots-to-the-ground" for the sake of it. Like, SHG wanted to slow things down and purposely made it so that players can only sprint as far as their grandmas can. <-- I'm betting you, if DICE was in charge of doing this mode, they wouldn't OK Neptune's death sprints from the start. Clearly unbalanced to one side, and the fake soldiers aren't fooling anyone, either. I've managed to win as Attackers a few times but when I win as a Defender, I feel really cheap. - Domination kills counting as 50 instead of 100 is due to why? To be different for the sake of being different? Ditto with TDM score limit at 75 instead of 100. Why is Ground War not included? What was the reasoning behind it? Why can't we equip a tactical and lethal grenade? Again, feels like a change just for the sake of it (and to pad Basic Training list). Why limit player choice? Suppressors only for one gun type? Want longer sprint? Yep, all locked into one type. There could have been better ways to make classes, right? There's a reason you rarely see the shotgun and LMG class, and nope, it's not due to their appearance. Tons more. I mean, most of these are personal preferences, but at the same time, I see the same reaction from other people, so it's clearly not just me. Don't get me wrong, I'm having fun with the game's MP, but it could have been more. Makes me wonder what it would be like if Treyarch made it.

Yep, I don't see a difference at all. I don't feel anything different too. Domination kills, ADS, etc. all the promised beta changes should be out by now. No word from SHG about it or if it'll ever come. Just annoyed at this point. Has a COD dev ever been this non-communicative before? They need a Community Manager. At least Treyarch has Vahn who always updates players. Can't wait for 2018 COD since it'll be Treyarch's turn. :P

Yes. I hate this way of thinking of "git gud or your opinion is wrong." I play a ton of Battlefield and know what it's like being sniped. Main issue with Gustav is how it caters to snipers, which means a lot ofthe other weapons are almost useless. I do well on the map as well, since I exploit the shit out of the B flag, but I feel bad doing so. Not everyone who hates or dislikes it means they suck at it. :)Nope. Unless you're a famous YouTuber/personality. That's what gets a lot of people: the silence. I DMed the SHG Twitter, no response. I tweeted Condrey (he definitely should know I'm media since it's in my bio), and nope, nothing. But there's retweets of YouTubers saying how much they love the game though. Checking it, you'll see fans, gamers all complaining and no response.

Lots of hate for the Gustav map, and yeah, I can see where it's coming from. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the person who designed it isn't used to multiplayer games, gameplay balance, variation in engagements, etc. It just reeks of, I hate to say it, amateur-ish game design. "Let's put B flag in the center with ledges where people can put mines, camp with sniper rifles!" "Oh, let's make the two other flags super far apart!

Add me to that list. I did well in BO2 and BO3, and so far, kinda struggling in WWII. Mind, my connection has been shitty but even so, haven't sucked this much in a COD since forever.Hmm. Now I know why some players seem to know where I am! Fuck this. Haha! Using it, it then.This! How on earth can you blame players when Acti is the one doing this for a game that's already gotten over $500m in just three days? There's no reason, NO REASON, for the game not to have dedicated servers. Years ago, Acti said they didn't do it due to server costs, etc. That's bunk. If Battlefield can do it, so can you.

The "Condrey knows best" seems to be hearsay (as far as I can tell, no actual tweet, etc.) Bu the game being in beta state seems to be legit. Domination score was supposed to be changed to 100 per kill, ADS was supposed to be faster, flinch lessened, etc. These are stuff SGH said it will implement in the game but never did in the final product (what we have now). Not saying they won't ever, but they should at the very least, address complaints and stuff. The lack of communication is the worst part. Reddit for WWII has become a complaint board and no one from SHG has even acknowledged any of it -- and they were very vocal on stuff before release there too.

What's baffling here is the promised changes. 100 score per kill in Domination, tweaking flinch and ADS, etc. What happened? Did they just forgot about it? My theory is they're deploying it all on a title update, but given the server issues the game is experiencing, they can't pull the trigger quite yet.I can't believe no one at SHG thought that escorting the tank, etc. warranted any points. Like, seriously, they could have just copied Battlefield and how it handled objectives.Not biggest ever. I got the press release and if it was that, that would be the headline. It's double the unit sales of IW from last year in the same timeframe, though it's not hard to do given IW was hated by a lot of people.

Doubt it's as bad as what I posted a few pages back: Same. Either it's 3v6 or games that are 34-120 in Dom, etc. FYI, SGH has said that flinch would be fixed after users complained in the beta. It should be fixed in this version, but seeing as this is the beta version, I gather, it'll be fixed once the proper patch has been released. I assume that'll happen once servers are stable, hence why they can't announce it or anything.

We want to make sure we give it a fair shake in terms of servers, glitches and whatnot.

Yep, it's back...hard! I even made a Reddit thread about it over the weekend, and lo and behold! The quickscopers came in to say it felt "prefect." Someone there said SHG might have made it this way to pander to YouTubers who love their no-scope-360-degree-tapioca-pudding sniper montages. I hate it. I mean, some of the maps (or rather, most) are built with snipers in mind and are just a pain in the ass to navigate. I'm having fun with WWII, but at the same time, there are nagging issues within the game that (to me) clearly shows SHG isn't that seasoned when it comes to making MP. Stuff like Headquarters are brilliant in theory but execution isn't well done (betting dollars to donuts that's why it loads so long after every match), map design are super weird (I get that they wanted to avoid the three-lane design), progression (seriously, who the heck designed gun grips? It's for a secondary, and I guarantee it that 90 percent of people don't even see their gun grip designs (you can see it by holding triangle on PS4), and so on. Also, this has the worst COD servers and matchmaking I've seen in recent memory. Player getting pitted against Prestige teams with superior connections? Yeah, nope. I've lost count how many times I've been ushered in to matches that are 3v5 or 4v6 and the entire team is stacked with high level players, and I'm supposed to carry my team of sub level 20s with a bad connection? Yeah, no. Concept is good, game is fun, but some gameplay design and choices are outirght baffling. Also, that whole "they didn't implement the post-beta changes" thing?

Same. Super terrible. I think they lose connection or something since it has happened to me. Like, a match starts and then I suddenly see myself getting kicked back out into HQ with various error messages. Also, matchmaking is crap. I'm either lumped into losing games, matches where it's 3v5 or more, or one-bar ping. Proof? Here: Super infuriating. W/L is crap right now, and I'm honestly surprised my KD is even at a positive. Activision really needs to roll out dedicated servers (not just this hybrid nonsense) to make it an even playing field. When I play with three bars, I feel it since enemies die instantly with 3-5 shots. In one-bar matches, it takes me almost an entire magazine and need to be super crafty. I honestly don't remember BO3 matchmaking and servers being this bad, and I kinda suspect Headquarters is one of the culprits for the instability for some reason.

I am since launch. I'm fortunate to get a two-bar ping. Not even joking. At least in BO3, I was able to join matches where I had three bars (out of four). Weird thing is, why are ping bars not present in War mode? I mean, what's the design decision? Those complaining about HQ, it seems Sledgehammer followed Destiny, no? Daily Missions, Weekly Missions, social hub, emotes in social hub, etc. A lot of things seem like a "me-too!" Destiny mechanic that they thought was cool,so they added them in. Not saying that's wrong, but it's clearly messing with connections and servers and such. They should have included HQ in beta to have tested this.I asked SHG games about this like a few days before release (this was in person, even), and was greeted with a "I'm the Art Director (or something) and can't answer that." I wanted to LOL so hard. I mean, really? Your guy that's coming out in a few days, and you don't think if there's Ground War? As it turns it, it seems it's not in it. Hence the reason.

So far, no statement on PS4 issues. :( Unless I'm mistaken, this has to be the buggiest COD launch in recent memory, no? Maybe it has something to do with Headquarters and its shared space thing? Also, I noticed that the game connects you to matches where your account is set to. For example, your account is R1 (US) but you're in Singapore, prepare to meet the lag monster since the game will match you to US people and not optimize for connection. I've tried it with other PSN accounts and yep, same thing. Used R3, got connected to Asia servers. Has a game ever done this?

Thread Anthem Demo Thread (VIP: Jan 25th-27th, Open: Feb 1st-3rd) - Time To Fly FreelancEra
Not sure if I'm the minority here, but I dug what I played. Technical issues aside, the core gameplay is fun. You had objectives on top of cliffs, you had to go underwater for some, etc., Not just a "run from point A to point B" kind of thing. Loot not being identified post-match was a design decision BioWare did as to prevent the pace from slowing down (from what I remember) as players would stop, check their loot before carrying on, which isn't conducive for a team-based game that has you constantly fighting mobs and stuff. Loved the particle effects and how each character had a lot of abilities. I remember in Destiny, it was pretty much your super, and the type of grenade you had, and the different variations of jump (hover, blink, etc.) and that was it. The game has a certain Mass Effect quality to it (in a good way), which is why I'm liking it a lot, I guess. I also liked how the bosses had different designs and encounters didn't just involve mobs. There was this mission (not sure if it was the Stronghold) where you had to take out turrets, and then there were landmines that did crazy damage, which added to the tense situation while dealing with the mobs themselves. Hate the technical issues, and how the frame rate is crap in Fort Tarsis first-person viewpoint, but the actual action, customization, and whatnot? Yeah, top-tier stuff. Me and a buddy got hooked even with the tech problems.

Thread Battlefield V |OT| Band of Brothers and Sisters
I take it there's no way to resupply grenades at all, no? Long-time Battlefield player here, and I'm kind of so-so on BFV so far. I like how the game looks, the gunplay is fine, the TTK is something I can live with, but my main issue is not being able to make out enemies in the background. I dunno, it's just a bit harder to make out compared to past BF games. I'm colorblind but even so, it has never been this tough. On another note: I have a sneaking feeling that BFV won't sell well. It might be due to the EA backlash, what that exec said about not buying the game if you don't want to, etc., but also, because it deviates from the BF formula a bit too much. Before anyone pounces on me, I'm not saying I WANT it to not sell a lot, but I just have a hunch it won't. It's TTK right now is even faster than COD (can't believe I just wrote that), and the differences to past BF games are big (in terms of mechanics like reviving takes a long time, etc.). Mind, if a lot of people are entering the franchise with this one, it's fine, but if you've been playing since BF2, BC2, etc,m it's a big departure -- at least for me, anyway. Curious to hear EA's next press release about it (no press release touting its sales, etc, is not a good sign).

I hate that the starting weapons are shit, and you need to complete X amount of kills before unlocking it, and then doing X amount of stuff to unlock gun attachments. It's also annoying how the Star Card slots are locked. I mean, Star Cards? Sure, but the actual friggin' slots? Why?? It's like penalizing new players by having them suffer through hell before being able to equip the good stuff or something. Also, Daily Crate should include a Star Card or two. Not just a super small number of scrap and credits. It's a shame, really, since underneath all the progression BS, it is a fun game, and in theory should be better than the 2015 version. Silverlining here is, EA will most likely end their mad moneyhatting of anything for now. I mean, I doubt they'll do this for Battlefield 2018 unless they want the same bad feedback. Speaking of, so there's no EA exec that'll get canned? Wouldn't surprise me if true. I'm now not sure whether John Ricitello is worse or better than Andrew Wilson.

Ok. my main complaints so far aren't even related to loot crates etc. Regarding Hero prices, doubt it's really going to be a super big issue. I mean, people have decided it is a big problem, which the microtransactions, and predatory business practices are, but the overall cost of Heroes is fine. Vader is at 15K and I already got 15K credits just by playing. Rather, I meant, sucking. I never once approached the top three or even five in an entire match, have yet to earn a Hero in a match of Galactic Assault, and so on. Yet, I STILL got over 15K to buy Vader. I didn't though, since I'd be wasting credits. XD Challenges are constant and don't need to be activated. Basically, anything you do adds to your Challenges progression and you get scraps, credits, etc. for it.

DS2 was the best one out of the lot, sad that one game (DS3) killed it. It became dudebro shooter McHorror for some reason, which smelled like a suits decision.
