      I think if you mod your PS3 you can change what you’re playing, even if it doesn’t exist. If it’s legit, video or nah.

      • PHAT PETE

        yes, you could do this on the 360 back in the mw2 days.

      Thats fake, a kid posted that on ifunny, i have a hacked ps3 and i can mod the message so it says im playing anything i type

      • Is this on featured, or collective?

      One word: Fake, everybody message the kid and call him fake.

    • Louis

      Yeah OK…

    • Common Sense

      No dedicated servers for the competitive side, I’m not playing. DDOS’ing is only going to get worse as more people play.

  • Mitch

    Hairdpoint? HARDPOINT!!!
    Sorry. But please Sledgehammer, hardpoint!

    • TheShadowReaper
    • PHAT PETE

      i enjoyed that game mode, it reminded me a lot of cod4 headquaters

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I love that gamemode. Please, SH, make this a thing!

    • Batman

      Capture The Flag BO1 style PLEASE SHG

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        No. Cap the Flag is terrible and draws tryhards. You want BO1 Cap the Flag? So you want people to be required to cap flags in order to get Marathon Pro?

        • Celest1ne

          I think he meant for Competitive :p Also HARDPOINT!!!! Dom is shit compared to it, and I LOVE playing dom.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Hardpoint? Please no. That gamemode was full of tryhards. I like Dom better.

    • Grigori

      And demolition, that would be awesome! 😀

    • Grenada!

      YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      They could add a different King of the Hill approach. Hardpoint drew out way too many tryhards. I couldn’t stand playing that shit gamemode.

  • Brad

    Nobody gives a shit about esports why do these developers think people do? It’ll fail just like black ops 2 and ghosts.

    • Mitch

      Please, tell me more about how your opinions are facts.

      • Brad

        95% of players don’t play esports. Fact.

        • Mitch

          No shit, that’s why it’s eSports. But unless you’ve lived under a rock since Black Ops 2 came out, you should know how fast CoD Competitive is growing. Or is CoD being at the xGames and a $1million tournament for shits and giggles?

          • Brad

            Cod at x games is the biggest fucking joke. It’s an embarrassment to real athletes who play real sports.

          • Mitch

            Ok, that’s your opinion, not a fact.

          • Brad

            So you think cod gamers are athletes?

          • Mitch

            No, where did I say that? But I think eSports is legit, there’s a reason they get enough sponsors they can make a living out of it and there’s a reason it’s going to xGames. You don’t have to be an athlete to do pro sport. Darts is a legitimate sport, but are they athletes? No LOL.

          • Brad is a Fag haha

            Just ignore him, he is just a miserable kid that will never get laid once in his life haha

          • Brad

            I’m sure you’ll get laid caring so much about a cod team lmfao what a failure. The irony is real. Fucking nerd.

          • Mitch

            You were already making yourself look like an idiot, talking to yourself isn’t going to help.

          • brad is a brat

            coming from a guys who is complaining about call of duty and that votes up his own comment hahaha wow how sad that they are still people living in their moms basement haha get real kid – Brad=Brat hahah

          • Brad

            I did not vote up my comments once. Don’t care if you believe or not but the truth is I am not alone here. YOU are the minority

          • brad is a “V”

            so are you considering yourself as a 30 year old virgin haha that is way to sad, it sure doesn’t sound like you are mature to me, for you to be an adult haha kids these days 😀

          • K

            Outside of this website and other specialist press, what Brad is saying is truthful. The interest in e-sports as a ‘real’ event is fantastically low. You try and explain to any girl at a bar how you watch sports like “Call of Duty” and you will be laughed out of the room.

            But that may change in the future, assuming that the audience for esports continues to watch the game into the far future.

            Personally, I don’t think it will happen, I think people will grow out of it eventually. But you never know. I’m open to being proved wrong.

          • Please stop being gay

            Honestly there was absolutely no reason to bitch and moan about this, bitching and moaning about it and the fact that you are looking up gaming news doesnt make you any better, and CoD is nowhere near the most popular esports game, activision has lots of money, there is no way activision would want to do something that would compromise all of their money

          • Duke of hazard

            Let me guess. You’re one of those ignorant losers that bash competitive gaming.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Oh come the fuck on. Such fanboyism.

            Competitive gaming isn’t a sport. That’s a fact. Sport = athletic competition and that’s a fact.

          • Mr Doge

            Not really “1 Million Dollar” Complexity only won 400000 buckaroos if I’m not mistaken so yeah. But your right CoD is the most watched eSport title so just watch all the butthurt LoL fans being mad 🙂

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Competitive CoD isn’t growing, as you can see, competitive has killed multiple games.

        • Brad Suck My D*ck

          bro you have been hiding under a rock LMAO!!

          • Brad

            Fucking social degenerate nerd.

        • Guest

          93% of statistics are made up. I would know, I do it a lot. 😛

  • Flutter Filly Shy

    I play call of duty for fun not to be a stupid tryhard.

    • Brad

      Agreed. Esports isn’t even a fucking word and you’re a social degenerate if you watch or play them. Play a fucking real sport. Fags.

      • Mitch

        You’d both play eSports if you were as skilled as these players and if you could make a living out of it, you know it.

        • Brad

          No I wouldn’t. Those guys who do this shit for a living are losers. Money isn’t everything. More to life. And playing on the same 3 maps with the same 2 guns every game would make me wanna kill myself.

          • Mitch

            They are losers? At least they spent time playing with their friends to make enough money to life their life, not like you to call people over the internet losers and social degenerates.

          • ThisGuy

            Remember money isn’t everything. Its just how you manage to survive. According to him

          • kplem

            sorry man but i laugh at you! these people are an absolute joke! the MAIN reason i say this is because they are going to X GAMES! and fucking over REAL athletes who work and train to become good. these virgins have no liffe but rely on cod which wont last long. imagine going to a job interview they ask “what have you done previously for a living” “oh i played competetive cod” they’ll sit there and laugh at you and tell to fuck off and GOOD ON THEM. these low life virgins are NOT skilled A fucking kill is being a surgeon, being good at A REAL SPORT, having a talent THAT IS SKILL. what skill is involved in sitting on your FAT ass pressing a bunch of buttons? the only slight skill would be on the WII with the wii mote. seriously like the sound of it you need to get out more and explore the world other than loook up to these *ALTHLETES* PPFFFFTT what a joke. BTW do you think that these guys will last? earning money like that is not going to last for long before no one cares WHICH NO ONE DOES! the majority like 90%+ of the cod community couldnt give a FUCK about esports ( i shouldnt even put sport in this category). you should be inspired by REAL athletes that worked and reached their goals unlike these virgins. the fact that they call themselves *athletes* and that they are going to X games is pathetic shows no hope. at least the spend time with their friends? Infront of a SCREEN all day? go out and get some pussy for a change

          • smayo

            I guess you said all i wanted to say…

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            If I got paid for playing video games, I’d do it. Why get a job that you possibly don’t like rather than get paid for playing a game you love? Good job to the people who CAN do this for a living. Besides, just because they play competitively doesn’t mean they have no lives. They probably have more of a life than the average person, who goes to an office and works 8 hours a day. All they have to do is play COD for practice, then play on Tournaments. Sounds better than an office job if you ask me.

    • Nick

      I find competitive to be fun though. I’m sick of the stupid pointless pubs XP grind in CoD games. BO2 League Play extended the game for me.

  • TheShadowReaper

    i really cant handle people that say that no one gives a fuck about esports etc etc…how stupid are people with that mindset. and my reasoning about this is that:

    if esports werent a thing right now, why the devs would give a fuck about balancing and make a game playable with any setup without anything standing out? why would they? they could just not give a fuck and make the next COD multiplayer as balanced as MW2, which is broken when it comes to balancing. also esports players are gamers like you people. they just happen to are way way better at this than YOU are. so stop hating on esports players. it just makes you look pathetic and jelly as fuck.

    • Jack Lame

      You literally support everything, wtf if wrong with you?

      • TheShadowReaper

        not really but ehh…if you say so.

        • Jack Lame

          You need to watch some depressing films.

          • TheShadowReaper

            no need for that. i have played COD Ghosts and BF4. no need for more depression than that.

          • Jack Lame

            They both suck.

          • Sumire CorpseGrinder Muroto

            I’m pretty sure that’s what he just said, friendo

          • Grenada!

            Haha agreed.

          • i♥COD

            same here, ghosts MP has given me a year of boredom. actually had to go outside!

      • I bet nothing.

    • PHAT PETE

      I’m not a fan of it but i understand why its big and why its there, it was silly IW took a step back from it. They should of put a lot more in to it.

    • Seth

      Um i joined a lobby with pubstompers and some esports guys and they werent that good.+ theres us to think about as well so chill?

    • I like Competitive Cod the most. I don’t like pubs. So yeah.

    • sharpshooter

      i think if there was a fairer way to get into competitive tournaments other than being sponsored, like qualifying through the league mode in BO2 would of been sweet. really enjoyed the league play in BO2! miles more fun being tested than just bossing public lobbies

      • C.O.D

        Actually in BO2 some teams qualified because of league play

    • Weaselboots

      I wouldnt say they are better than us, headglitching and camping or aiming down sights for 10 mins is not what i do… Just sayin

      • abc

        it’s not what they do either. you’ve clearly never watched a game

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      Let me ask you this; why in the flying squirrel fuck should they cater to the minority of players? Why is the e-Sports community so arrogant and toxic? Nobody wants this shit added in the game.

      • TheShadowReaper

        everyone wants this shit added to the game. it opens up a whole new window of things to do and if you dont want to do its ok, you dont need to. you dont have to play ranked games in COD in order to rank up. hell, in BO2 you didnt ranked up with ranked, only pub games did that. its for the people who like a challenge. and do you know what you as a casual gain of that? a balanced game. you dont have to play one bit of ranked ever but the balanced game is there for you too, not just the minority. so shut up about it and enjoy.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Everyone? You mean the 1% out of the 40 million that Michael is talking about? Why cater to the minority instead of listening the people that ACTUALLY pay their bills? Weird logic you have.

          What in the hell do e-Sports pricks know about balance? They only play 1/5 of the game. Black Ops 2 was far from balanced. That game was utter trash, thanks to the game’s public matches being focused on competitive. You know what competitive added on Black Ops 2? Skill-based matchmaking. Guess what? Nobody liked it.

          Your community is toxic, and having CoD at the X-Games will draw the media out and will make gaming look even worse to them. It will make gaming look bad. Why not put LoL or Starcraft to the X-Games instead? There are multiple YouTube videos of these nerds talking shit and standing up and yelling at the other players. This is what you want? Really? Then CoD is dead.

          • TheShadowReaper

            you have no idea what you’re talking about. BO2 was amazingly balanced. if you dont like it, go play clusterfucked games with no balance at all. like MW2 for example.

          • Yeah this guy does not know what he is taking about. Skill based, so what he wants it best against worst instead?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Black Ops 2 is not skill-based. It’s the most unbalanced CoD yet.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Lol seriously? Black Ops 2 is balanced? What a joke.

            Target Finder LMGs, tac insert quickscopers, toughness, Remington 870, FAL, SMR, M8, etc.? The game isn’t balanced.

          • “LOL seriously?” Ha ha! I meant the matchmaking, you said it yourself.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            No competitive in pubs or the company can forget my $60.

          • Why are you even on this site anyway?

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Because I have the right to be? What kind of question is that? Fanboys. There’s a reason why CoD is dying. e-Sports is one of them. People like you are the reason why the e-Sports community is toxic.

          • Bob

            That guy is probably just mad because he got destroyed even in pubs in BO2. Then he went and tried league and couldn’t get out of iron division.

          • yep

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            Dumbass. I never played League Play because it was a retarded idea. It never appealed to anyone. That’s why it only got 4k people only online daily. Playing 1/4 of the game isn’t fun. You competitive kids are brainwashed.

      • clercq1983

        If you don’t like e-sports or league play then don’t play them. Just stick to you’re pubs. We don’t mind. I think its a good idea. If you want to play competitieve then you can. If you just want to play for fun, you can do that to. So everybody has win situation. If you like sitting in a corner with a riot shield and a couple of c4’s or IED play pubs. But if you don’t like to play against players who use that you play e-sports… Maybe you don’t have a winners mentality and that’s oké we don’t judge you for that. But don’t bitch on the people who do like competitieve gaming.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          Don’t tell me what to do.

          I will complain about competitive because the fucking minority determine what patches are being done. What the hell? THAT is pathetic. People who play 1/10 of the game has a say in what patches happen? Idiocy. Competitive CoD is stupid.

  • Brad

    hey guys I’m am sorry, I am just depressed that I may never have a girlfriend and all i do is stalk shit about cod esports but yet i say that it is fun. so i am very sorry about what i said and i really need to get a life because every time i see professionals playing and getting money I get so jealous, cause I don’t get paid for playing CoD.

    • MichiganerE

      Shhhhhh…..

    • Brad

      This is faggotry level 5000 I didn’t even say this nice job got 1 thumbs up lmfao fucking failure. I’m sure you’ll get laid often telling women about your cod competitive faggot teams you cum sucking faggot.

      • MichiganerE

        Why are you replying to yourself?

      • Ben

        dafuq did i just read

    • Lost Nigga v2

      Nigga you gay

  • ccrows

    I’m more concerned with how cloaking, jump boosts, and wall climbing plays in this game more than what competitive thinks…

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      None of that is confirmed for MP. BO2 had cloaking in the campaign trailer, too. It wasn’t in MP.

      • MichiganerE

        Why did you change your profile pic?

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Because I was tired of the old one 😛
          Not the first time I changed pics. I change quite frequently, actually, compared to most people here.

          • MichiganerE

            Ahh okay. Also, I never understood the old one. I guessed it was someone high.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            Lol it was from a Youtube video.

      • Joe nagy

        If they do though, the maps will have to be bigger. You’ll have to add a vertical aspect to it to compensate the wall climbing and high jumping. While I wouldn’t mind that as a game mode….I hope it’s not the core of the MP.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Spot on.

  • Connor Williams

    NOOOOO Well, this game is ruined. Competitive ruins CoD

    • Nick

      How?

      • Batman

        It forces them to do terrible maps like bo2 and focus on a small portion of players

        • SeaSaltSora

          IYO
          BO2 Maps > Ghosts Maps
          (IMO)

          • smayo

            BO1 maps > BO2 maps

        • Like 90% + people that played BO2 loved the maps and the game so…

          • Sal

            Small maps take way less skill… But big maps get boring.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            You can’t speak for the majority, so don’t even try to. Multiple YouTubers like Thunder can’t stand the game. They understand that the game has problems. Black Ops 2 is more fun than Ghosts, but it’s far more rage inducing because of how unbalanced that game is.

  • K

    We can argue on the pros and cons of designing the game around esports all day long, but let’s not pretend the competitive scene isn’t loaded with complete and utter wankers.

    Fix that up first, clean the scene of the worst cases of douchebaggery and then people might be more receptive to watching / having the game designed around these people.

  • I hope they make this game a lot playable for casual gamers instead of competitive. For Ghosts they mostly changed the game for the competitive players. I really hope in this next CoD they don’t nerf snipers like they did a bunch with Ghosts. Now I rarely even snipe in Ghosts because they nerfed it so much.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      Didn’t they take a step back from eSports on Ghosts?

      • More like a step forward on it.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Not from BO2, I don’t think. BO2 was super eSports heavy.

          • Yes it has. They’ve done patches for the pros to use. Like the buffed SMGs so that pros can have a variety of SMGs to use because the MTAR back then was the only ranged SMG to use. Now you can use the Bizon and other SMGs to hose them down. Ghosts did a lot of buffing to a lot of stuff and they even nerfed the snipers so snipers aren’t even usuable anymore.

    • Nick

      Ghosts was a huge step back in terms of competitive. I have no idea where this comment comes from.

      • Haven’t you noticed they actually moved a lot forward into. Most of the patch updates were for the pro to use. For instance the SMG got buffed because they wanted to see a wide variety of SMGs instead of people just using the MTAR when it came to eSports. They also made the range a lot more for a lot of the SMGs and they nerfed snipers big time.

        • Nick

          They also removed Hardpoint (huge competitive gametype) CTF (another huge competitive gametype) Theater mode (used by a lot of competitive people to watch “replays”), had no codcaster at release until the entire community was in uproar, removed League Play or pretty much any ranked system, maps are the worst they’ve ever been for competitive and very large, IEDs, C4, Danger Close is nowhere near balanced,

          Also I’m pretty sure the SMG buffs were made because the entire SMG class (except the MTAR) was completely underpowered. Every single CoD developer has put balancing patches, IW is no different.So I don’t know why you’re using a patch for balancing as a derogatory point when balancing is a standard thing done in EVERY ONLINE GAME.

          So no, I still have no idea what you’re talking about.

    • Sal

      Uh, what are you talking about? Ghosts is much less teamwork centered than BO2. One bad teammate in Ghosts is just a handicap, one bad teammate on Bo2 equals a losing game.

      One of the reasons why I like Ghosts more, on BO2 all that you need is to spam UAVs and you’re set.

      • You need team work to win matches almost all of the time in Ghost. There are games where I’m carrying the team and yet we still lose. Black ops 2, however I can carry the team if some of my teammates suck in the game. I’ve been there and done that.

  • Gamefr3akable

    I don’t play competitive COD, but would love to get into it. If I don’t, it still looks great that Sledgehammer is trying to help people who actually care for eSports. Good luck to them! Can’t wait to see what they show.

  • Batman

    I just want to cloak, super jump, and super punch in MP as well as climbing

  • ben wills

    Here’s to the competitive people ruining another game. I’m looking at you, BO2. Putting skill and tactics back in the game would be nice.

  • Batman

    Competitive ruined BO2. I hate E-sports

  • Clout Lord

    They should give us League Play, but have it where you play people in your tier and just move up from there. It really sucked in Solo on BO2 where you get paired with Bronze guys or guys that havent been ranked vs a team of Masters. It’ll be cool if they could implement some type of camo for the major teams also, along with a badge of the logo and some uniform colors to match the team logos.

  • Bob Mit

    Great news for the 1% of players.

    • LOL. Activision holds a $1,000,000 tournament annually and Call of Duty eSports is going to be on ESPN at the X Games. Ha…1% my ass.

      • yep I’m with you

      • Guest

        having cod esports at X games is a fucking disgusting pile of garbage! the facts that these losers are taking over REAL athletes is just pathetic! all these virgin cod players thing they are *athletes* makes me puke. its a big slap to the face to athletes that work hard unlike these cod virgin. i will if you use your *esports* talk to a girl you would laughed at out of the room.

        • They don’t call themselves athletes and neither do I…but if chess is a sport then Call of Duty is a sport.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            CoD isn’t a sport and that’s a fact.

          • I don’t think so either, but if chess is then Call of Duty is. I think neither are, but a lot of people think chess is a sport, therefore Call of Duty is a sport.

          • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

            I can say that potatoes are fruits. But they’re not fruits.

        having cod esports at X games is a fucking disgusting pile of garbage!
        the facts that these losers are taking over REAL athletes is just
        pathetic! all these virgin cod players thing they are *athletes* makes
        me puke. its a big slap to the face to athletes that work hard unlike
        these cod virgins. i will laugh if these pro players use their *esports* talk to a girl they
        would be laughed at out of the room, good luck getting a girlfriend. imagine what one say you go to a job interview and they ask “what have you done for a living so far” “oh i played competitive cod for a living” they will laugh at you and tell you to fuck off AND GOOD ON THEM.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        So? What does that have to do with you minorities? A $1m tournament to the winner. They get around $80-100k a piece. The losers don’t get as much.

        CoD at the X-Games? What a fucking joke. A no-skill game that isn’t nearly the definition of a sport?

        • If it is no skill, then why aren’t you or I professionals?

  • Potato Republic

    I remember back when COD was just for casual players.
    *Sigh* The good ol’ days..

  • killerbunny53

    Yeah we seriously need hardpoint back guys I agree! HARDPOINT!!!!

  • idc219

    Expect ridiculous quick scoping snipers in this version.

  • VVFZ

    This is what I like to see. Sledgehammer supporting competitive/gamebattles. My favorite part of Call of Duty

  • Mike

    Good, I love competitiveness. Mainly for the peoe of esports. I don’t play or do esports. Just a guy that loves to have competition to his public match games.

  • chris

    i was thinking today of a new game mode they could implement. FFA with purchasing mechanics. save up to win or spend money or points on weapons,attachments,ks,and equipment to maintain the lead? what do you guys think? keeping with the whole pmc theme.

  • Joshua Ramos

    • Grigori

      Not squad points, pick 10 is better

      • Grenada!

        Pick 10 is the best imo. That and scorestreaks are amazing and need to return.

        • ObV Swift

          Ghosts kinda had the pick ten system with squad points.

          • GinsuVictim

            Pick 10 was better though because you had to sacrifice in a few areas for the class you wanted, while in Ghosts you can have a pretty OP setup. This coming from a Ghosts fan and apologist.

      • Edwin Cortez

        squad points were only for unlocking stuff

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Pick ten was fucking horrendus. That’s why the pistols, LMGs, and snipers were so OP on Black Ops 2. Think of something else.

    • Mr Doge

      I don’t think you or anyone else understands that that the game is basically in Alpha meaning it’s almost finished. No matter what you say in terms of core mechanics like Perks and Loadout Structures are already been done and dusted meaning anything you say isn’t going to mean or do jack. (Besides Gamemodes)

    • Ben

      0. Great level design.

    • I♥COD

      one thing id nick from Titanbfall is the rengen cahllenges, in that you can only prestige when youve done certain challenges for that prestige. it made me use all the guns and equipment, makes prestiging and ranking up alot more fun / harder

      • Joe nagy

        Never played Titanfall but that sounds really cool. I’d like that.

    • Uhh, I think you forgot “No noob-tubes” but I could be wrong.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      No Theater Mode.

      • Why?

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          It effects the net coding. If you want Theater Mode, then the whole game needs dedicated servers. In which Activision won’t do.

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      BTW no 3 burst Assault Rifles. Those are OP as shit. The M8 and SWAT on Black Ops 2 were OP. Semi-auto weapons like the FAL and SMR were also unbalanced.

    • g

      Clans in ghost ruined it its not fair when full party clans can go against randoms thats for clan vs clan not pubs

  • LOL at all these TDM players crying

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      TDM isn’t the only playlist I play. I just don’t want to play against tryhards every time I play the game. You e-Sports nerds can have your League Play playlists while we play the game the way it’s meant to be played.

  • I laugh so hard at the haters! I love esports, but I still play pubs. I like the balancing. Esports keeps Cod alive. Esports/ comp CoD has been around since Cod4, not Black Ops 2 and Black ops 2 did a good job with it. Pro Players are very good so yes they have sponsors. Now why do the haters care anyways, just don’t play League Play or whatever and play your TDM and you will be fine. It doesn’t mean the whole game is going to be competitive and they will still put in regular pubs so yeah.

    • jooker-jr

      I didn’t watch eSports but I like the rules of it in ghosts and Bo2

    • i♥COD

      Yeah i dont watch esports but BO2 league play was just what cod needed. Bossing pubs got a bit boring and it was nice to be tested and realize im not as good as i thought!

    • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

      e-Sports is killing CoD, not keeping it alive. Sorry to burst your little fanboy bubble, but CoD e-Sports is the most toxic community in the franchise. It’s full of arrogant pompous greedy pricks.

      Why should the devs cater to the minority instead of the majority that pay their bills? How is e-Sports balanced, when they play 1/5 of the game? The devs can add their own playlist for competitive, but do NOT make public matches competitive-focused.

      • They never said they were going to make a game that makes pubs competitive. They will have pubs and also good competitive support.

        • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

          I wouldn’t mind that, but keep it to their own private playlist. And what’s the point of competitive when one team, EG, will be the only ones winning?

          • That’s probably what they will do. The point is it takes more skill than pubs and it is more fun. You are only thinking about the pros. I play comp and I am not a pro.

  • Poplur33

    Competitive is dumb have them make their own mods to the private matches if they want competitive

    • GodLikeLeftNut

      like pro mod i take it?

  • Louis

    Please treat the Hardcore community just as well as the Core community by giving us the same game modes not just 3 or 4 modes like ghost or rotating HC modes like tryarch did.

  • MIKKEtheMIDGET

    Now I’m even more hyped of AW, #NextCoDHype

  • ben wills

    AAAAANNNNDDDDDDD it’s not going to be good

  • GodLikeLeftNut

    seriously for competitive they need to get rid of hit markers from wallbang and thrown equipment. pro mods have done this for years and its about time CoD steps up its competitive skill

  • Call of Doody

    i hope you can disable aim assist. the preemptive aim assist pisses me off so much!

  • ObV Swift

    I did enjoy the Face Off from MW3, and the Clan v Clan was really fun in Ghosts, Black Ops 2 had league play, so i’m really hoping Advanced Warfare does a good job with eSports. This actually makes me more hype for the Multiplayer reveal.

  • I dont understand why esports is so hyped it’s just regular players playing the game

  • Common Sense

    If they don’t have dedicated servers on the competitive side, so people can’t DDOS. It’s not going to work. I don’t/can’t play league play on BO2 anymore purely because 10 out of 10 games I get booted offline. I might as well play gb’s because finding a match that doesn’t have booters takes an hour.

    • Call of Doody

      even if they give servers like on PC they are still a shit 20 tick rate though playing bo2 on PC and on xbox, servers do make a big difference! couldn’t imagin how much better CoD would be with a 128 tick

  • Ryumoau

    great news, since i like CoD expanding more in the eSports area. Hopefully this will be as exciting as Black Ops 2 was to watch during competitive.

    Also, hopefully Sledgehammer will consider doing a beta for this game to help reduce launch errors. Even if its a closed beta with professional CoD players testing, i’d take that over nothing.

  • Ed

    the game would be better off just ignoring the competitive side altogether.

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Please no. PLEASE don’t make public matches competitive-focused. SH doesn’t understand how toxic the competitive community is. This is such a terrible decision.

  • smayo

    Hope they live up to there words and really listen to the cod fans this time, and by that i mean listen to all fans, not just the 5% esports pro mlg etc players.

  • imTojo

    If this cod wants to be good it has to cater to all 3 of the community the competitive, sniper and pubs simple as that tbh

  • Something like what Respawn decided to do should be implemented with this game. That is, that all people labeled as cheaters or frowned upon by the community should be forced to only play with each other. The amount of DOS & DDOS attacks on previous COD games ESP. Black Ops II League Play has been ridiculous and a turn of from COD. Cheaters should never prosper.

  • clercq1983

    I honestly don’t understand you guys. All this frustration about a game. There is gonna be competitieve gaming and gaming for the people who just want to have fun and play pub’s. So everybody has what they want. Pub players have lots of maps they can play and a huge amount of perks and killstreaks. Competitieve players have theire rules, maps, game modes and restrictions. So shut up, play what ever you like to play and lets all hope SHG brings a great game. And if you don’t like one or the other, then just don’t play it…

  • jordanxbrookes

    Why did I not see this coming?
