I feel like for a new call of Duty game there are not many people playing. The most I have seen online and this was once in the 2 weeks since it's been out was 300,000. Right now only 140,000!!! That just does not seem right for a new release. I can honestly say that for me with the lack of hardcore game modes (*and the games modes being almost identical*) I do not play as often as I normally would with a new COD game. I am usually gaming like crazy with a new release. Three weeks in and I can honestly say I am bored out of my mind with this game. I love the rush, fast pace, & objectives of HC Dom/HC CTF.
This really doesn't make since for me to pay all my money for the playlist of hardcore games to be so short. 3 game modes???? ARE U SERIOUS!!!! but if you go to the core playlist they have 12 ( including clan vs. clan) game modes they can pick from. i should not be forced to play core just to play domination if im a hardcore COD player. Infinity ward & Activision get you act together and and treat all of your customers equally... no reason for you to be catering to yout the core players and not all players. at least give us more to choose from.
I have a feeling that there are fewer players that enjoy this game and there are no signs that the makers of this game cares for its clients. I can't even find one simple email contact option to voice my frustrations to the makers of this game.
I love the game but there are a few points that needs to change to make it fun.
i'm on 360 and i can confirm the drop in player numbers was massive here too.
launch week peaked at 600k players while bo2 and mw3 were easily 900k in launch week
now i only see around 250k players, i've stuck a thread in the ps4 forum to fish for player numbers on ps4 as i'm curious to know whether people are just sick and tired of being ripped off or have gone next gen in a big way
