Seems odd to me that so many would buy the new DLC...

People tend to complain more than praise, and thats with anything or any type of service.  The game is by no means without its faults, but really its the same it has been with any other COD game...lag, bad spawns, bad maps, etc. boo hoo.  I like the game, its better than MW3(although I miss the Strike Packages especially Specialist).  And this is a very small % of people playing the game, its in no way any representation of the majority of people who own/play the game.

That's cool, although the percentage of people I was talking about are the ones here on the forums...the same ones that were complaining about BO2 being so messed up, now seem to also be complaining about the DLC.

My only complaint is the playlists, maps seem to play really well and the peacekeeper is solid.

Forums are always misleading. People come on here to complain and vent frustrations with the game. People who are unhappy are always more likely to express their opinion, its a fact of customer service. Its rare in a customer service industry to get happy calls.

On here, its just as rare to get positive threads. People with issues are going to make their voices heard. It makes it sound like everyone is having problems, when in reality its the percentage of players who come onto the Forums to complain. Its not really a representative portion of the entire community. In fact, several people create accounts simply because they are having issues and want to vent.

Fact of the matter is, most people don't come on here. They play and enjoy it and don't bother to come on here.

Take what you read on here with a grain of salt. There are active and real complaints to be sure, but in some cases its just the user's viewpoint or opinion. Also, notice for every complaint there are people who counter that same complaint.

This is the most idiotic thing I've ever seen, that's some great deductive reasoning, they don't complain on the forums so they must be having a BANG UP, PROBLEM FREE EXPERIENCE. If you think that you REALLY need prayer. You and every other clown that makes these kinds of statements OBVIOUSLY have some vested interest in the company.

I'd like to think that the people that come here believe in some way they are shaping the future of the COD series with positive and negative feedback. Whether thats true is debatable.  Its easy to write everyone off as just a complainer. I believe that these are people that have come to love this series, and are extremely passionate about its problems and future.   The rest that dont come here have no right to complain.

Why are you surprised because a few hundred or even a few thousand come on here and complain. There are a million people that just play this game for fun and don't have over exagerated views of their ability. They along with myself just play for entertainment and more maps add to the entertainment. There is lag in all online games and always will be. If the lobby is bad switch lobbies. Some lobbies aren't as bad as others. Or play against the bots. Or play combat training half human and half bots. Anyone can do well in that whether they are lagging or not.

I bought the season pass. Haven't played this game in at least a month if I had to estimate.

Looking forward to Die Rise and i'll prob play some MP too since my friends will be back on playing for a few days this week. Some people love this game and don't care how broken it is/isn't.

After playing farcry 3 for a couple of nights, it's comforting to know that BO2 isn't the only game that's broken.

I didn't buy the new DLC. I refuse to give into the hype.

All the money they spent marketing and advertising there DLC content they could have put some serious fixes into the game but they won't, and i dont blame them. They have hundreds of thousands of players who will just dish out there money no questions asked hence why the CoD franchise hasn't died and wont die for a very long time.

The game is littered with problems, why give them more money for more half assed overly-hyped up maps?
