I won't buy until they sort the lag. They should just use the old lag comp from MW2. That was the last cod that run correctly.
I also won't buy dlc until they ban all the prestige glitchers. I hope everyone sticks to there guns on this one. If not we will continue to get ripped off for broken content and games.
Excluding the last map pack for BO which was only zombies maps, i've bought all DLC in the past. This time around it won't happen, unless they are able to significantly improve the matchmaking and connectivity. And looking at Treyarch's track record i bet that will not happen, as the original BO still remains broken and infested with lag.
Although MW3 was made by a different developer, the same also applies there, it never got fixed. And i was foolish enough to preorder Elite Premium where i got screwed over by laggy playlists, price drops so that the DLC would have been cheaper separately, and by a service that never seemed to work properly and especially during launch it was mostly unavailable. For compensating the Elite service not being available in the beginning, they promised a one month continuation to my subscribtion free of charge. That also ended up being a fraud as Elite became free with BO2, and the one month extension never even got delivered and i ended up losing part of my clips from my vault etc. despite the fact i contacted Activisions customer support in advance once i noticed the end date on my PS3 was not updated further. Customer support claimed the service would still be continued, which it didn't. While reading the forum in the past there was also threads about the issue months in advance, and they did nothing in order to deliver what was promised.
So there's no way i'm getting a season pass, and a 99,9% chance i will not buy the DLC separetly either as that would require a fix to connectivity as i mentioned above, which will not happen. Anyone in their right mind should boycot the DLC unless they make a miracle and fix the game.
I want the DLC and i am a bit of a CoD-addict, but there comes a point when enough is enough. Next goal is to avoid preordering and buying the next title unless the feedback on the forum is positive.
this is the first step, maybe start a forum getting people on board to reply as if signing a class action if you will.... sucks for me cause im an elit member so im locked in regardless but I hear and feel everyone issues, but other than BF3, treyarch/activision knows they have no real competition at this stage! and they abuse that previlidge to the fullest
as for getting people on here good luck I spent 30 mins googling just trying to post. these boards are still messed up for alot of users where the reply button doens't show up. I had to change my email tied to the site for it to work, found it threw google and I'll be damned it worked.
As for DLC only if they do what BF3 did and sell a premium edtion for 30 bucks with all dlc later on...we know that won't happen. They still want full price for older cods that are pretty much dead or full of hacks. Dlc isn't worth the extra cost to me when it has a life span of less then a year until the next game when everyone moves on.
