I love the shit out of this iteration of CoD. pick 10 is probably the best idea theyve had yet.
This will be my last CoD unless they do something drastically different.
Whats to enjoy about getting spawn killed, by some one you don't see untill you've been shot due to lag comp.
Nothing works. Redeem codes for Hardened don't work ! Theater doesn't work !
I start a game of hardcore, I'm now forced to play this because of lag in core, and I don't get host the game plays reasonably well, if their is an host migration and I pull host which happens alot because of my 14 meg upload, the game turns to crapola and it's like I'm playing core with the hit markers I get, complete rubbish !
Eventually all the people with good connections will stop playing, this will then put the problem of lag compensation at the door of people with mediocre connections, these will then realise how unfair this game is, they will then stop playing leaving the only people playing sat outside in vans pinching Mc Donalds wifi.
I want you to try and explain that to the kids who couldn't get a kill in the previous COD titles that are now owning face becasue of what they describe as "mad skillz".
Now I have to listen to some **uckwad after every game telling me I'm garbage because he was able to run around a corner, have a quick jerk, and then kill me all before I fired a shot.
i completley agree with you on everything your saying this game is a joke the lag comp is ridiculous the spawn trapping is even worse this game is not fun at all not only all of that but the fact that they launched this game with only 4 game modes in hardcore has to be the dumbest thing ever i am not a core player for the simple fact that you plug a guy with a whole clip and he doesnt die but then hits you with two bullets and your down some of the features of this game are bad a** but the game play in muliplayer is complete garbage on all game modes i thought this game was suppose to change the future of COD it seems it hasnt changed a bit it only seems to have gotten worse
It has to be said that this game has alot right.
Before we were so limited with some stuff and MW3 took piss abit being unable to edit certain settings and being a mostly HC player it was even more difficult. Sure they took out most of the HC modes in this game but I do hope they add more. KC was excellent in a HC setting.
The pick 10 CaC allows you to set up a more precise class to match your style. Oh you don't use frags.... ok well take two other things that you DO use. Oh you don't want a second weapon, use a combat knife that has a trigger action button. Playing Tactical button setup is never easy with knifing when ya wanna sneak up on people without a silenced weapon but with the option to use trigger, it's just so much more fun to run into a room and stab the two or three snipers camping a room trying to QS like kids and just stab the shit outta them all by a few taps on the trigger as with the thumb is a little awkward sometimes and can go seriously wrong.
Now zombies is strange. The maps are a little underdesigned as they all feature in Trans with the expection of Nuketown but what I like most about it is how it all fits together. At the moment it's a bit over rated but with the new content drops I think they will expand heavily on this. I did also like the fact of finding a classic map in the fog.
As much as I do like this game, to get the real feel of what this game was intented for you really need to go to places like FraggedNation and GameBattles and so on. It's the only way really unless your very lucky to find a 6 person team on the other side and you have a team of 6. The rest is just for fun which it's meant to be. So far, I've had alotta fun and it just keeps coming at me. The lag does not really annoy me as it's a chaotic factor to expect in publics.
SP was so much more entertaining. The different endings and the story building up to it. They have shown some amazing talent there. Some bits were very funny like getting into the jet fighter and suddenly you are flying around and it's like "I have no clue what I am doing" lol. Tactical Missions, now these were awesome and the challenges with them puts you in control of everyone and being able to jump unit to unit and controlling the battlefield that are on MP maps.
All in all a great game with possible much to come.
oh and NO I ain't one of these fanboys, I don't care what the fuck the company says, advertise is much as you like, the product is the one doing the talking. and oh for people who complainted about server issues and lag on day 1..... HOW MANY ARE TRYING TO CONNECT TO THE GOD DAMN GAME AT ONCE!!!!! Did you really think that there was not gonna be issues Day 1?
I was enjoying it, barring the expected teething issues.
...now (as of todays events) ...Less so.
Lots of things I like about it. Maps actually being one of them despite peoples (most?) negative response towards them. If somehow the lag compensation is toned down it could quickly turn into my favorite CoD. Until then it's kind of no fun for me :[
