    • ccrows

      I was just gonna make the Robin Williams post.

      F**king sad man. :'(

      RIP Robin… 🙁

    • Guest

      That death was a hoax.

  • From what I can tell, Sledgehammer Games really liked Black Ops 2.

    • Black

      So did I, so it’s all good.

    • K.E.M

      Exactly what I was thinking.

    • Tom Scar

      Alex by the way I’m really sorry I just received your replies and read your twitter feed – it wasn’t the right place to have a discussion – and I was jut a ransomed charlieintel who followed you on twitter because I liked your comments and it was wrong of me to talk to you here in a gaming forum and sorry to make you angry. If you’re wondering I don’t follow you anymore but all I wanted is to have a discussion and I was at fault for having it on an off topic article.
      Sorry for any offence caused and if you’d like to resume the Debate just tell me .
      Have a nice day! 🙂

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        A little late, isn’t it? That happened like last week.

      • Debate? I support Isreal. I have no intention of debating. And of course I was going to be angry. You wrote a damn book about a very serious conflict on a COD website. I just wanted to know your twitter because I felt that’d be a better place to discuss this.

    • riley

      NO FISH A.I.=NO BUY

      • Whatever Brah

        Wtf is fish ai?!!!!!!!!!!!???????!?!?!?!?!?!?,!!?!!?!??!???6456/6;6;7643$65,(, bggijmksknhsj kenhvev yeah I did that. What now?

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      So glad they were inspired by BO2 and not Ghosts. Then again it’s not really surprising since Ghosts is like the worst COD to date.

      • Run N Gunning Camper

        It’s a slow boring snorefest. They got some things right but it’s the most boring COD for me. There is also no replay value and a lot of my TDM matches ended by running down the clock. When BF4’s TDM is more action packed than Ghosts, you know there is something wrong. After experiencing Titan Fall’s boost jumps and parkour, going back to Ghosts felt like the game is too basic.

        Thank God Ghosts’ life cycle is almost over.

      • Diego Diniz

        I prefer Ghosts then Black Ops 2. Seriously…

  • K.E.M

    isn’t it FaZe? or is there really a team called FaBe

  • Black

    Shame it happens the same time as ESL One.

  • CoDforever

    will it be 4v4 with hardpoint and codcaster enabled?

    Also, feels good to be back.

    • MichiganerE

      Where have you been?

  • Max Martinez

    Ugh! I kinda hate watching these eSport matches. They get boring after a while. Just let the public play like YouTubers and let them upload some gameplay so we can also have some fun.

  • J Sama

    Willing to bet Activision encouraged them to follow the Black Ops 2 model. Those numbers don’t lie. 100K+ people on BO2 EVERYDAY.. I was actually gonna give up on this game but seeing them have such strong BO2 influence has won my interest back

  • Diego Diniz

    Who Played the Game??? The Birst jump is just Jump+Jump or we have to hit another button???

  • Diego Diniz

    I dont like Black Ops 2…i’m afraid I will not like this COD. i will buy it, but Sledghammer and Treyarch COD’s are not the best ones…still prefer Ghosts, MW2 and COD 4 from Infinity Ward.

  • Diego Diniz

    I dont know..I dont like Gun Sounds and Maps Design from Sledghammer and Treyarch. Wich Map is better:
    Favela or PLaza ??
    Rust or Raid ??
    Terminal or Express ?????
    Afghan or Turbine ??
    Scrapyard or Slums ??

    Cmon, BO2 maps SUX!

    • Sagar Trika

      From these options, I’d take Favela, Raid, Terminal, Turbine, and Slums.

      • Diego Diniz

        Dude, Black Ops 2 Maps was the Worst ever! Cmon, PLAZA, RAID…these Maps dont even looks like Call of Duty. When I play Black Ops 2 I fell like im playing another Game…Not Call of Duty!

  • Mark

    Do we know when the rest of this footage from gamescom will be able to be viewed?

  • Sagar Trika

    What time will the stream be?

    • mark

      I’m wondering the same thing.

  • mark

    Do we know wat time this starts streaming?

    • J Sama
