Why Core only challenges?

Please stop with all the stupid core challenges.  HC makes up for 3rd of the population. Isn't it time for CoD starts acting like it?  MW3 didn't have hc/core specific challenges.  so why start?  HC community suffers enough with all the limits this game has set on us in compared to previous CoDs.  I normally am a huge fan of the CoD series in general.  That being said. I'm getting really tired of supporting a game that doesn't listen to the community.  Sorry but youtubers and kids with no patience don't make up the community.  I getting sick of being forced to play certain ways. catering to sum but not all.  Most the time its the minority.  Its getting ridiculous.   There is no reason at all to have core/hc specific challenges.  Please stop hurting the HC community and get your head out of your arses.

If you had done a search on this forum you would have found multiple posts complaining of the same issue, with many having the same answer, hardcore does count for challenges and ops, the only one that you can't do in HC is domination as that is not on the playlist

What are you talking about?  No they don't.  All clan ops have and been core and HC specific.  It was like it in MW3 and is like it in BO2.  As far as clan challenges go.  HC and core didn't matter in mw3.  In BO2 it does matter.  Idk how you think other wise.  Especially when the titles of all the challenges start with the word "CORE".  Meaning you have to be in core for it to count. much like the way the clan ops have always been ran.  Idk where you get your info or if you ever even done a clan challenge or clan ops but you might want to dbl check your source again.

Considering I complete most challenges and ops by playing hardcore and can visually see results counting I don't think I need to double check my source and many other members of this forum could probably verify this as well

its more like 20-25% and they cant make everyone happy. but above all its about the money, more people play core so they are getting more money from them then the hardcore players.

and its not really that hard to get used to core. i used to play nothing but hardcore in cod 4, waw, and mw2. then i got into a clan and they played core so i started to play it as well and now i play about 90% core modes and i am right up there with the best of them, not really but i can hold my own and maintain almost a 2 kd. core is easier then you think because the skil of the player really takes over more. you can have a crappy player in core who will sit in a corner with an lmg and spray at you and only hit you with 2 bullets before you kill him. stick the same player in hardcore and he only has to hit you once which he can do because thats all he can do.

O i don't play HC because i think Core isn't easy. quite the opposite. I find that HC takes more skill to be good. You need to have better surrounding awareness. faster reflexes and you cant run and hide till you regen if your hit. Also no perma red dots on a map to chase and play pacman with.

But you are wrong about HC only being 20-25%.  Go check out the HC and Core playlist some time.  Vast majority of the time HC sits at about 1/3 of the population, some times more sometimes less but on avg about 1/3.  This doesn't take into consideration all the HC players that have moved to Core so they can play nuketown or one of their fav game modes.  Since there are 20 core game modes and only 4 HC game modes. A lot of HC players have moved to play other things.  Nuketown being a big one.  It was promised to all of us but not all of us have the option to play it.  Much like league.  It was a huge selling point.  But its all meaningless to a HC players.  Sure we could go play core but most HC players want to no part of core and makes all core things meaningless as a viable choice selection.

im on the play lists right now.

170,207 total in the playlists

core= 109,747

hardcore= 37,452

if you do the math on that its less then 25% so yea i would say thats less then 1/3 of the population at this moment and its pretty much the same all the time.

like i said sometimes more, some times less but on avg its 3rd. i think even a dev had acknowledge that last year.  Stilll doesn't take into consideration of the HC players playing core just so they can play Dom, nuketown, multi tdm or any other of the 16 core game modes that HC doesn't have.  HC players numbers are skewed greatly because of how much of a disparity there is between core and HC game options.  Which in preview CoDs it wasn't no where near what it is now.  Either way though that's 37k between 4 playlist.  Thats nothing to shake a stick at or pretend they aren't there.

But either way.  Still no reason for Clan challenges to be tied to hc or core though. With Core challenges every weekday and core clan ops on weekend, combined with the lack of HC game modes.  Its almost as if the devs want to push out HC players all together. Simply make Challenges like they were inthe beginning and middle of MW3.  The clan challenges were find at first. They didn't start to go down hill till the end of mw3 and all of BO2.  When they  started to to hc/core specific game modes.

core tdm has more players in it then all the hardcore modes put together. so yea core is going to get more stuff its plain and simple and its always been that way. and cod has always sold, and will continue to seel amazingly. so if you really want to make a point then stop buying the games or playing for that matter. they are not going to cater to a few. theres and old sayin "the needs of the many out weigh the needs of the few". im not saying this is exactly how it is but i think you should feel lucky you even get hardcore modes with all this stuff with league play and trying to cater to mlg ans stuff like that. so be thankfully you can still play hardcore.

Check your math. That is 34%. 37,452 / 109,747 = .341%
