"Groundwar" in Private Match (W/ Gameplay)

Ghosts Wii U

Here is some "Groundwar" gameplay in a Private match my friends and I setup. It is a mix of bots and actual players.


(Music was added due to gameplay sound not recording)

*There may be some rubber-banding lag, but that was host and network related.

The main reason I'm posting this is because there is very little to no FPS drop compared to regular gamemodes and we want groundwar. Results:

  • Infected feels really smooth with 18 players. (It is the least laggiest gamemode in normal playlists as well)
  • Rest of the gamemodes on large maps have little FPS drop, with 9v9, but it is still playable.

What I was thinking could be done to get Groundwar is:

  • Make Groundwar 8v8 [16] (like it was pre-Hotfix on BO2 last year)
  • Infected could be increased to 18 (or 16) due to very minimal to no drops in FPS.

Further optimization in patches could increase the performance and make this possible.

Leave thoughts/opinions below.

Also, some feedback from A_Trey_U would be nice.

9 REPLIES 9

I laughed harder than i should have at 1:08-1:10

This is awesome! I mean, when there isnt too much camping in a 6v6 match games in Ghosts can be pretty crazy, but this will guarantee that games will be more fast paced. 8v8 would be a nice trade-off for me. How bad is the framerate drop on 9v9? Is it so bad that'll it'll hamper gameplay?

The drop isn't that bad. It still feels playable and smooth enough to where you can't notice the drops. 8v8 would be great, it was what we had on BO2 before they hotfixed it to be 9v9.

What is the lobby size for infected right now? I know when I used to play MW3 on my friends ps3 it was 18 and it was so fun.

Infected is currently 1v11 [12 players]. Plays smoothly with 18 even on Stonehaven.

Well I havent bought Ghosts yet, but Im thinking of it. Larger Infected lobbies would be nice, same with Ground War, but thats not keeping me from buying it. Ive heard lots of negative reactions, so I think i'll be waiting until its cheaper.

Call me Padiego, but I think the reason they left out groundwar on current gen and wii u was to kind of nudge people into buying the "nextgen" versions.
