No, Its NOT Bad?!

TacticSticks

ive heard a lot of players on the forums and on youtube talk about how they hate different aspects of the game, and that call of duty sucks now a days and that theyre gonna allll switch to titanfall. But, i mean, the games not bad... the thrill and fun i get from this game is better than any other game or franchise ive ever played! Yes this is just my opinion but im sure there are other people that share it. i mean, if call of duty sucks now a days it wouldnt be so successful, i mean really, theres millions of people that play this game, they dont play it because it sucks. anyways, lets switch it up a bit, in stead of talking about the negatives of the game, what are some things you love about it?

    Imho, overall the game is very good.

     

    However I have an OT question. What's with never using caps? My iPad defaults to caps after a period, so are people making an effort to not use caps? If so why? Just curious, I realize asking the question will confirm my uncool status, but seriously. I am not trying to be a jerk or start an argument, just honestly curious. Nevermind the use of paragraphs... As an "old" man, reading some posts on here is a chore.

    Successful? I was just on BO2 tonight. And there was almost as many people on BO2 as what I see on Ghosts.

     

    Also, I've NEVER seen Ghosts reach numbers as high as BO2. There was ONE day I saw approx. 300,000 players on Ghosts. Most of the time it's between 120,000 and 240,000 at the highest during any peak, at least where I am in L.A. and what shows up on my XBox. BO2 numbers rarely dropped below 300,000 unless it was late at night.

     

    Sadly, BO2 was garbage in my opinion. Still plays horribly. But, with Ghosts and its insanely ridiculous spawns I hardly play it any more. Just this past week I increased my internet connection from 20MB down to 84MB down, with 19ms ping. And the lag has actually gotten worse. With my new connection the "it's your connection" brigade will look really stupid right now. And to be honest, IW is looking really stupid. Four months in and the spawns make it unplayable to me. I have never been spawn killed this much, even in BO2 which also had stupid revenge spawns. Almost half my deaths now are from spawning near or right in front of enemy players. It's a joke. And all this week I've seen nothing but campers and snipers because of the spawns. Everyone is so cautious playing, they're either camping or sniping. I refuse to camp, and sniping is only good on a few maps.

     

    I may not be back until November unless they get the dedicated servers online and fix the fricken spawns. Ghosts is a horrible representation of the COD series. I find it hilarious that there are still people who defend it and complain about people criticizing it. It's insulting to hear, but I don't care what others think. I don't have time for panderers, or garbage gameplay.

      when im playing ghosts i always see at least half a million, maybe there are just a lot more players now rather than when you played? i dont know, maybe theres some difference in our maps. but also, there are other consoles and i know ghosts on the PC blew up. im not saying youre wrong, but this post was really for positives about the game and not bad ones...

      so, im not into keeping up with the game developers, i could care less who makes the game as long as its fun, maybe im just not as much of a gamer as you, but ive heard that ghosts was trying to appeal to new players, and kind of undermining the experienced players, those experienced players that snipe from the corner of the map, maybe you havent played since this, but they nerfed the snipers for the new players who arent good enough to snipe, but get killed by the good players who took the time to master sniping.

      camping - part of the game, always will be. simple as that!

      and the spawns, yes they are HORRIBLE! but once again, a way to give the new players easy kills and keep them coming back

       

      and to get the conversation back on the right track... sorry runandgun ... my favorite thing about Ghosts would have to be the maps! theyre so much more diverse and so much more thought out more than previous maps! i love them! especially octane and stonehaven!

    Ghosts has done a lot of things right. There's still improvements that need to be made. I'm quite pleased with it and the only part of the game that I'm really missing are friends on the PS4. But that's not really IW's fault.

      Ok, to stay on the positive side...I like the maps in Ghosts, although there is still too much ground clutter...oops, ok, mostly positive.

       

      I'm still sticking it out with Ghosts. I'm hoping that when the dedicated /hybrid servers come online that it will improve game performance. I am still shocked by the fact that I've dramatically improved my connection to the game, but - despite smoother animations - I am still experiencing insta-deaths that are not a result of a headshot.

       

      I do like that they added the graphics showing what the enemy got for killing me. (which is how I know when I am killed by a headshot or not).

       

      I think Ghosts will be a lot more fun when the spawns are finally fixed. I hope they fix the spawns before the next DLC comes out. I am playing it less because of the spawns, as it's hard to get into the matches with that issue.

       

      I lIke the variety of maps in size and designs in Ghosts. Stonehaven is one of my favorites, too. Because I think Stonehaven is the most successful at allowing for the widest variety of playstyles. I like the first DLC maps.

       

      Not directly related to Ghosts, but I like that there are now three developers of COD. Which I'm hoping will result in future CODs receiving more testing and tweaking before release, since they are putting more time into each new title. Don't get me wrong. Despite my complaints I am a huge fan of COD. Maybe it's my passion for such a quality series that comes out a little off sometimes. And I apologize if I've offended anyone. I can be overzealous.

       

      And finally, I am glad Sledgehammer has joined the ranks, and I look forward to their COD 2014. Cheers.

        How bad is the lag on your end?  I moved back to Dallas from Amarillo (work took me there) and I noticed a huge improvement in lag.  Do you live in LA proper or one of the surrounding cities?  I was assuming with more people around physically, I was getting a better connection, because I haven't changed anything on my end.

    -First off I love Extinction even though Nightfall isn't out on PS3 yet, it's a really fun team game mode.

     

    -I really like the weapons on this game better than BO2 especially the AR's and LMG's.

     

    -I like most of the maps except Siege, Sovereign and sometimes Stormfront. Stonehaven is really slow but a cool map and believe it or not I like Chasm.

     

    -I also like the killstreaks in this game and that there's Assault, Support & Specialist.

     

    The one thing I really hated was I.E.D's but now I use Sitrep so it's fine. Sometimes the spawns and hit detection are terrible, but that's bound to happen. Oh and the shotguns can be really annoying at times, lol.

     

    Overall I think this game was well done.

      i havent played much extinction, is it better than zombies??

       

      the weapons are all cool, but the honey badger, Remington, and the AIR are definitely the aces! sometimes MTAR...

       

      im with you on IEDs, they are absolutely annoying, and thats why i use them!

      • Re: No, Its NOT Bad?!
        MidnightSpecial4

        I really liked Zombies and find Extinction more fun because you can constantly change your loadout to make it more interesting and you can actually beat it, lol

         

        I myself like the Ak12 & Remington R5, I've been using the M27-IAR to get Rapidfire Master and VMR Master and It's a pretty sweet gun actually.

         

        I got so annoyed with I.E.D's that I threw on Sitrep and started using them myself. .

    Someone says the same exact thing every year of every COD. This is old as old can be.

    Ive enjoyed Cod, been playing since MW. No game is perfect ghosts included, but its a lot of fun esp blitz. Lets hope that developers listen to the communities comments and take them into account for the next game. Its a constant work in progress imo.

    The game isn't bad it's just that Call of Duty needs a new engine. Because the Quake 3 engine is at it's peak not to mention it was made for PS2 and Xbox and early PC so every Call of Duty game is literally pushing the capacity to and performance to the max. The Quake 3 engine can only get worse it's not going to get any better the more they add to it the more unstable the engine gets. The network/servers issues, spawn issues, out of sync issues, bad 3D animations, and hit detection are proof. Titanfall is the only game that compares to Call of Duty that's why people are switching to it. It has nothing to do with it being better they are probably switching to it because it seems more playable.

    Eh, Titanfall is really hyped right now due to Respawn being behind it, but from what I've seen of Beta plays, it still is pretty CoD-like, but with a little more verticality with the wall running/jumping and such. Otherwise, I already see TONS of people flocking to the Carbine, others quickly going for their mechs, and yes, I've even quite a bit of camping already...it won't be long, if not happening already, before people are on forums complaining about stuff, I'm sure.

     

    Not to say Titanfall doesn't look cool and has potential we have yet to see (still a Beta after all), but...well...many things I've seen hyped and talked about with Titanfall were also hyped and talked about with BF3 and 4 (and both also looked pretty) and look at how those turned out. Two lawsuits even brought against EA because of BF4's problems. As "bad" as CoD may have gotten to some people, when has there ever been a lawsuit against Activision based on its performance?
