Infinity Ward introduced the concept of Dynamic map events in Ghosts MP last year, and not many were fans of how systematic and basic they were. The only event that stood out to most fans was Strikezone’s KEM change. In Advanced Warfare, SHGames is bringing back dynamic elements to some maps not necessarily all of the maps.

Michael Condrey has stated that the dynamic events will either be trigged at the same time every match, which adds a balance factor so that teams can predict when an event will occur, or the event can be earned via a map based scorestreak in a care package.

 Yes, some maps will have dynamic events that trigger at the same time every time – we believe that leads to better strategy around how to master the map. Others may have map based score streaks earned through care packages. Others may have both, or neither.

    i think there should be destructible environments (not overkill like red faction) but have a few cool scripted events that you can trigger. i hope there is more dynamic event that look great in AW. sadly the dynamic tsunami looks horrible

    • Aymen Skiken

      well at least you can swim… it would’ve been better than levolution if there were AI fishes…

      • kplem

        nothing beats them AI fishes 😀

      • X Mutality

        Dude wouldn’t it be cool if like there was a sandstorm map where at a specific time a sandstorm would come and make nothing almost viewable or at least so the radar statics? That way it makes it an interesting game for players, no?

        • Aymen Skiken

          there’s a map in uncharted 3 (forgot its name) that has a sandstorm and it happens in the middle of a match… it sucked ass… everyone shoots you from everywhere , its only about luck. so , no.

          • X Mutality

            Awwww, well I tried. Credit for trying right? RIGHT!? 🙂

          • Aymen Skiken

            congrats , here’s your cookie bud 😀

  • Run N Gunning Camper

    I just want some refreshing dynamic events. Just make them fun and not boring like the Satellite crash on Whiteout.

    • J4MES

      The gas on Sovereign was also stupid. It just blinded both teams and ruined it for everyone!

      • I actually wanted them to bring a map with that level of smoke permenantly because it would be more tense due to you not being able to see the enemy from a distance!

        • IIPlayer99II

          That would be cool if the smoke was real thick but then again that would a hard map for sledgehammer to do right

          • derrrrrrrrrrrrr

            A foggy map where you can only see about 10 feet ahead of you, minus buildings.

    • HenryDF

      I just wanted them to be consistent and in each map, rather than one or two fun ones, one or two crap ones, and then nothing in any others.

  • Maybe if they made a city map that had non scripted destructability. Just one map. That’s all I ask. I know, I know, “Go play battlefield.” I’m just asking for something fresh in CALL OF DUTY. And a full scale destructible map would be a great change of pace

    • MichiganerE

      That would be great.

    • Run N Gunning Camper

      Be careful what you wish for. They might just do that in Ghosts 2. Just imagine getting crushed inside a building because someone called an air strike and it leveled the structure.

      • That would be actually cool. Just as long as the air strike was a map killstreak and not an actual killstreak.

    • jooker-jr

      what I want them to do when the game releases is ” experiment ” with some random and new ideas like for example your idea and a vehicle based maps
      and release them for free

      EDIT : or simply make CTE servers ( like bf4 )

  • MichiganerE

    A few questions about dynamic elements for AW:
    Anybody remember an article for dynamic whether months ago for CoD 2014 (AW)? What happened to that?
    Will these dynamic events on some of the maps truly be dynamic, or are they just gimmicks like with Ghosts?
    Are all these events scripted? It’d be nice to have events that activated when you decide to activate them.

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      The activated events will be the ones in care packages.

      • MichiganerE

        That’s nice. But I hope that for CoD 2015, we get some REAL dynamic events.
        Here’s my example:
        Let’s say a map takes place on an enormous ship in the middle of the ocean (similar to Carrier). The map would start out nice and sunny, then at a random point in the map, the whether begins changing drastically, as in, it starts thundering and lightning. Eventually, a huge storm breaks out, effecting the waves of the ocean, and as time goes on, the waves get bigger and bigger, making the ship rock back and fourth more and more. Eventually, an enormous title wave is developed, hits the ship, completely effecting the layout of the map non-stop, and buy the end of the match, it would pretty much be a different map.
        What do you think of that idea?

        • Grigori

          That sounds amazing! But if the ship gets hit by waves and moves, won’t that be very annoying if you are playing on it?

          • MichiganerE

            It would keep you on your feet at all times.

        • Sounds a little too close to Battlefield 4.

          • MichiganerE

            That’s a bad thing?

          • Yes. If it is too close to BF4, then why would we even buy the game? We want a whole new game.

          • MichiganerE

            Okay then, why type of dynamic events do you want? Besides, AW has used plenty of ideas from other games, so why not destruction similar to Battlefield?

          • But, Paracel storm takes place (mainly) on little islands, not a ship (granted, there is the ship next to teh turbines and le destroyed acc)

          • MichiganerE

            That’s why I said similar to Carrier.

        • I LOVE that idea but if that went ahead, people would accuse of copying Paracel Storm and the bf fanboys would be worse (their accusations anyways)

          • MichiganerE

            “Let’s say a map takes place on an enormous ship in the middle of the ocean (similar to Carrier).”

          • I know what you said, but people’s accusations can get crazy (also what about the levolution event on hanain resort, it’s sorta similar to what u said)

          • MichiganerE

            Not at all.

        • Mr Sir

          I find that kind of annoying, like its a good idea in theory but sit down and think for a moment, If the boat was rocking and swaying so much it would be irritating trying to aim and get the kill especially if you shoot someone they go behind cover the boat is rocking you find them try to shoot miss and get stabbed or shot. Then the map changing completely is fine and all just not really fair if someone had been having a great game just for the map to change and one of two thing happening, they get killed by the tidal wave, or they get stuck in an area because of the debris around them. Still would be fun though.

          • MichiganerE

            It wouldn’t sway to the point of annoyance, but it would still sway enough. I also had the idea of a bridge map, this idea, I’ve had before even Ghosts came out. You’re playing a match on a bridge, shoot the support beams on one side of the bridge, that side and anything on that side tips and falls over.

          • Mr Sir

            That actually sounds pretty freaking awesome. Especially if you get the winds to blow harshly and cause the bridge to rock a little. I think that would be fun and looking back on the boat thing if it doesn’t rock excessively its fine.

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Sounds great. But technically that’s still a scripted event that isn’t player activated.

          • MichiganerE

            It would happen randomly and happen different every time.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            That’s more work to program and it’d barely make a difference WHEN it happens.

          • MichiganerE

            Then have it a set time, but nerf my idea a bit.

  • jooker-jr

    ” Yes, some maps will have dynamic events that trigger at the same time every time – we believe that leads to better strategy around how to master the map. ”

    IMO they should be random

    ” Others may have map based score streaks earned through care packages. ”

    I don’t like this idea

    • Grigori

      f…f…FIELDORDER!?!? Oh god, no please!

      • Bruce Wayne

        i dont think so because you can have the care package as a killstreak so i think it may come from that

      • MrJDGuns1

        There isn’t field orders. It just comes from care packages.

    Its a shame that Sledgehammer doesn’t realize what the community needs: AI FISH

    As long as the dynamic elements don’t ruin the gameplay I’d be happy. I love the static maps in COD but ‘dynamic’ ones in Ghosts were just plain awful and embarrassing. Lampposts falling over, doors blowing off hinges, gas stations blowing on its side and a silly KEM strike on Strikezone were very lame indeed. The ones in Black Ops 2 like the water on Hydro or the cable cars were simple yet kept players on their toes on certain parts of the map.

    • jasonxbrookes

      In my opinion that is all CoD needs. I think destruction belongs in Battlefield because it fits that game’s style of play. We don’t really need it in CoD. Black Ops 2-esque events or dynamic weather would be great.

      Dynamic weather – Each map has a day/night variant, and a rain/snow and clear variant. This would make me so happy and provide tons of replayability as maps would stay fresh.

      • KernosT

        Would love to that but first thing.Hating pussies gonna be like”OMG THIS IS SUCH A RIPOFF OF DESTINY,DESTINY BROUGHT DYNAMIC WEATHER OMG!!!!”

      • Black

        Agreed. I loved Paracel Storm (BF4) because of the weather change, something amongst those lines would be nice in CoD.

    • Seven

      The strike zone one would have been cool if they released the destroyed version as a standalone map

  • Grenada!

    The dynamic events on Ghosts were horrible and ruined the gameplay. The event one on Soverign was the worst with the mist thing because you couldn’t see shit and it was just horrible. The StrikeZone was crap as well because you could be on a good streak and someone gets the KEM in a care package and boom, everyone dies. Please make them only minor things that don’t really change the gameplay or flow of the maps.

    • Baruck obuma

      yeah people would get a KEM just for tea-bagging someone.

      • Grigori

        yeah, I was like wtf is this shit

  • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

    Field Orders are back?

    • J4MES

      Please god no! That feature stinks of IW..

      • Blaine

        Well it’s still a better idea than only giving the chance to people who are running care package…

        • Jim

          Not really.

        • J4MES

          If people aren’t running a care package; then they shouldn’t get one for doing practically nothing e.g killing a guy and then tea-bagging for a cheap KEM. It’s lame.

    • Grigori

      Fieldorders won’t be back! You can get this dynamic event by a carepackage. The traditional care packages are way better.

      • Brady the Defiled (sillibk)

        Field Orders deploy Care Packages…

  • Guest

    I really hated the earthquake in the map tremor (Ghosts) So hopefully they will not make that kind of bs in AW

  • Let’s hope the maps will do more than tremor XD. A “dynamic” map change from a timed earthquake, that just knocks down a telephone pole.

    • Grigori

      I would like to see buildings that are collapsing. (No, i don’t wanna play bf) Those are buildings that you could enter before but because of the earthquake, you can’t get there anymore. The whole map will change, just like strikezone. That’s what you call a dynamic event

  • Pete

    Black Ops 1 had the same ‘dynamic map’ features as Ghosts did.. Smh

  • 111AlaN111

    I hope it’s not just destroying doors and making a lamppost fall.

    • The Telephone Pole

      That wasn’t a lamppost…

      • Grigori

        That wasn’t a door…

      • 111AlaN111

        Whatever.

  • I have an interesting theory or observation. BO2 had always focused on gameplay, as you the soldier on ground, (execption to scorestreaks), and never took your attention, flow, or gameplay out of gunfights and strategy. For instance, they didn’t have nuclears that would kill everyone, end the game, or even change the map entirely. For that would take away your attention, flow, and gameplay of that game. Unlike Ghosts, introducing the aspect of you AIMING towards changing the map, flow, and gameplay. I think this is one of the main factors that really messed up the game for me. Anyone disagree or agree?

  • X Mutality (Mutality)

    Dude wouldn’t it be cool if there would be a sandstorm map where a sandstorm comes in at a specific time and makes the playing field barely visible or at Least the radar statics? I mean that would make the game fun, no? This is for everyone by the way:)! Also like a hail one where if you go outside you get hurt? Also to make the tsunami cover the whole map where you can only stay in higher ground. Also shooting down helicopters so that it falls to the ground and you can get kills? Also like a hurricane blow or a tornado comes in at specific times for dynamic events so that you could be blown in it and shoot from the top or just be blown in general? DUDEEEEE! That would be sick. What do you guys think?

  • X Mutality

    I also forgot too add for the scores streaks in like a Japanese map, have ninjas come out and start chopping off people. DUDE THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!!!!!:DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!
