          A TrueSkill Ranking System for some playlists would be nice.  SND, Domination, Headquarters, CTF, and many more would become more fun and challenging for those that want it.  Then we could have a playlist that was unranked that didn't effect stats or Rank.

            1) Microsoft is worth a hell of a lot more then Activision and can afford them, this is also an infastructre they have been building over many years

            2) It's been in most games don't see why they would leave it out

            3) Agreed

            4) Agreed

            5) I Prefer the BO2 style of unlocks.

            6) Most CoD games have had SBMM system

            7) Agreed although I don't mind Ranked/Unranked

            8) Agreed

            9) We have enough weapons, more weapons mean imbalance.

            10) Agreed

            11) If I want old maps I'll play old games

            12) Don't see what can be improved with HM.

            13) I like my season pass it means I don't have to worry about getting MSP through out the year.

            14) Agreed

            15) Examples?

            16) There is no need for monthly DLC, think of the cost!

            17) Lag Wars struggles with 18 players adding more will only make it worse

            18) Because I feel like it.

                  Dedicated Servers are not possible

                   

                  I don't want a search feature that goes by skill, I just want to play

                   

                  Host Migration in Black Ops II was perfect, the only time it failed was when the host pulled the plug and that's unavoidable

                   

                  You're asking for too many maps

                      Why aren't dedicated servers possible? They would need a lot and it would cost a lot of money, but it would be possible.

                          Look at any of the other hundred threads I've commented on for a reason. It would cost far more money than most people can even comprehend

                              oh are you talking about the sort of money that people cant imagine? you mean some of the 1 billion barrier that activision broke with blop2. you mean the money that overtook the highest EVER selling us box office film of all time (AVATAR)

                               

                              mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm

                               

                              i think you need to re-think what you have said on all of these post's about the publisher basically cant afford it?

                               

                              because its bull****

                                  1 billion was total sales, you take production cost, R&D, employee wages, and marketing expenses out and what do you think they're left with. That money is paying for this Call of Duty, it's paying for the new engine that probably took years and millions to make, it's paying for events. After you factor in all of that then there's not really a whole lot left.

                                   

                                  Even still, the cost of Dedis would be a couple million a month, per game, per console. And that's just in server costs. Then think about all the down time for maintenance. Everyone thinks that Dedis are the perfect solution when they're not

                            ... forget most of this silly crap. It just seems somebody wants more..more ...more. I don't understand the whole point of wanting some skill matchmaking system to give you competition. Noone will remember where you were in rankings, you won't stay there for the entirety of human existence. Most of this crap would screw up matchmaking even further as DLC. Or you would be paying for a key to unlock content locked on the disc you already paod for. Just like with ___ and _____ ___.

                              Just for the record, the 300,000 servers were for xbox live, I suspect some people may be confusing these with dedicated servers. Handling live subscriptions/matchmaking is completely different from hosting Call of Duty games.

                               

                              Peer to Peer is here to stay, the reason, it's scalable.

                               

                              I was just curious as to why you didn't want league play? Also why the same attachments as MW2?

                               

                              The WAW Co-op I agree with

                                1. I think everyone wants dedicated servers at this point and it's only a matter of time before we get them.

                                2. Always a nice addition and  fun break away from the traditional game modes

                                3. A good balance between small and large maps.

                                4. I like how it was in Black Ops 2. Something other than headshots.

                                5. Everyone complained about that in BO2.  Have certain playlists like that and it can be good.

                                6. Just because you don't like it, doesn't mean it should be taken out. I love league play and hope it returns.

                                7. 15, 20 prestiges.  Just make sure the game is good enough that I don't get bored it by 5th prestige and it becomes a chore.

                                8. More guns means more challenges. I don't want to feel overwhelmed.  The more weapons, the more balancing needs to be done.

                                9. More maps are always welcome, but again, I don't want to feel overwhelmed and fall in love with 2 maps, yet only play them once a night because of the rotation.

                                10.  I loved the MW maps, but not all of them, one pack of throwback 4-5 throw back maps is good.

                                11. You won't need a better host migration system if you have dedicated servers.

                                12. What's wrong with the season pass? You pay for everything in advance at a discounted rate.  It's a win-win.

                                13. If done correctly, it can work.  But I'm not sure how popular it would be.

                                14. More challenges are always welcome, but nothing too impossible to pull off.

                                15. That's asking for far too much.  These people that work at IW aren't robots. They don't sit in the office 24 hours a day slaving away at this game. 

                                16. If the maps are big enough then yes, I just don't want it to be like Battlefield where I'm walking 15 minutes just to find someone.

                                    @7.  I do agree that prestiging ends up become a grind after you do the same thing over and over again.  BO2 was that bad.  Once I got to master prestige though, the game became very dull.

                                      If COD was going to dedis, they would have announced that at this reveal. It is not going to happen and for many, many good reasons.

                                       

                                      They did not make such an announcement and for everyone crying about dedis, the reality is that the COD franchise has not yet hit a point of diminishing return. That's mostly due to their business model ... which includes the current match hosting system, not dedicated servers.

                                       

                                      I know some members of the community out there think it is all cool to rag on corporate capitalism. People are evil who build corporations that are out to make a profit.

                                       

                                      But the only economic model that is actually suffering a slow, miserable death is non-profit socialism. The business model ATVI has been using for COD works and works well for ATVI's investors. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. It ain't broke.

                                       

                                      Oh, and one other thing. Pay close attention to yesterday's announcement: Call of Duty is getting a new engine upon which it will run. That invariably includes new netcode. You're arguing for dedis to fix something that has not yet even happened, much less proven to be ineffective. You have to play on the new engine and new code before you can assume it will have the same lag issues experienced in the past.

                                          its not a new engine its an upgraded enhanced engine same as we basially get every new cod.

                                          also netcode is changed every game to some degree due to whats in the game, but the basics remain the same. In all honesty ghosts on current gen consoles will be the same cod expereince we've had already, on next gen yeah you have better graphics and physics ect but i think the main difference will be alot of people will find hosting slightly better as there will be less strain placed on the players consoles

                                          Skill based matchmaking is very annoying for many people who just want to play for leizure. Because of this keep a league play type mode ( I mean really just don't play it if you don't like it).  Also make it so the people with the best connection to the host get the advantage with lag.
