    Thank you!

     

    I'd like some analysis from the forum... Do you think this means DLC in the future?  Does this give the Wii-U a shot at being competitive?  I just couldn't bear to lose my Wii-mote and nunchucks!

      NO, it does not means that...it means pity!......What rules here is money, and sales have been so bad...like forever on Nintendo machines that makes no economical sense...besides...the rule-of-thumb is...that they have to expect TEN percent of users buying DLC....meaning that, since the wiiu instal base is already small...ten percent would be peanuts!

       

      WiiU is not competitive for multiplayer games period...one game means nothing

       

      I also love the wiimote and will stay with Nintendo on this...but I am realistic!

        no one really also brings up - our team has to port all the code for our games, and if the dlc then that as well. they might be working on other projects too, and simply dont have enough time for all of it. so our extras are cut out because theyre well..extras. i feel free fall was a long term thing they had on that back burner, slowly cooking and finally ready. notice how we dont have all the other things that the other consoles have, i believe for the same reason. i hope we will get more patches now, with the cycle and all. but at the same time they will probably be working on our next installment

    Copying over the two bugs I have encountered so far from the Bug thread

     

    - No music before the match starts during the countdown screen

    - Bulldog shows its reticle during the match countdown

    the free fall map is sweet i could guarantee that if this game gets complete dlc that people would buy the wii u and this game and would pay for the future dlc, since you released the free fall map so many have been thankfull, it would be nice to get another chapter for extinction tho since you are now famillier with e-shop now it shouldnt be that daunting, out of all the controllers i find the wii u the best since you can have a map on the pad and its lighter its a shame its not doing that well  beacuse its such a great console im sure when they release a few more games this year it will pick up again. kind regards James

    ATREYU i love you for releasing the freefall dlc. This is a huge step in a positive direction for call of duty on wii U. I would be even happier if we had the option to buy the other dlc pack in the future. THX for your support me and alot of the wii u community extremely appreciate this.

    It's REALLY hard for me to not be a douchcanoe in regards to the new map. I'm thankful we got it - I know you all didn't have to give it to us...but technically we were supposed to have it at launch. I'm sure you can understand how we feel about that stuff...it's nice to be catching up to other consoles, but the mere fact that we have to play catch up is, let's say, irritating. I'm sure you can also understand that not having that map at launch did turn away people from buying the game on Wii U.

     

    I really like the map - it's chaotic fun. You may want to look at frame rate drops on it, however. It's more prevalent on this map than others.

     

    I really like the improvements you made with contrast, brightness, and color balance on the original maps - everything looks so much better even though it never looked bad at all - so thanks for that.

     

    Thank you for the operations fix. I was lucky in that I was only locked out of First Class Operations, but so many of my allies couldn't get in at all and now they are incredibly excited. Another douchcanoe-y statement however...it shouldn't have taken 4 months to get this fixed knowing how crucial it was to gameplay. Many people left the game because of it.

     

    I hope these fixes and eShop will get people to return or get people to buy the game. My fear is that lack of DLC (even free DLC), support, slow patches, etc have turned too many people off buying it on Wii U. My other hope is that Activision is starting to understand what needs to be done to increase sales on the Wii U.

     

    Looking forward to patch notes.

    How up-to-date are we on patches when compared to the other consoles?  Our patch notes are quite slim.  I assume "various additional fixes" means the stuff the other consoles got, but how far did y'all go with that?  Are we caught up completely?  Or are we caught up to a certain point, and if so, can you please specify what point that is?  I have no problem reading the patch notes on the other forum, but I'd like to know where we are at in the patching process. Which patch notes on the other forum applies I guess is a good way to put it.

        Got off work late.  Went to bed early.  Slept like 9 hours.  It was epic.

    A Trey U unfortunately this patch comes with a lot of new bugs, tonight I can't even play

     

    Please do something, check the official bug thread, thank you

    Still no word on what else was fixed.  Bummer.

     

    Edit:  Well we got DLC.  They probably worked real hard on the patch, and getting the new map setup.  I should cut ATU some slack.  He's probably taking a nap.  I can wait for patch notes.

          he mis-understood, thats all. english is not his first language so maybe he missed parts of what you were getting at.

           

          @ lucapac, we are under the impression that the patch notes are incomplete, in regards to the "various fixes" part of the notes. trey u also posted them late in the evening, meaning he was prob in a rush to get up most, but not all of the notes.
