    PC Update anyone?:D

  • wtflolsmh

    Thank god! That skull was the reason I get spawned killed because it comes up everytime you spawn smh.

  • Thecpkleader87

    Thank god

    • ccrows

      About to play a game. The update is 116MB.

      Right off the bat I see a “supply drop challenge” next to the find match.

      “For me” the challenge says, “Get 30 kills with Heavy Weapons in Dom”.

      Will report back with any other major changes that I see…

      • ccrows

        Honestly I’m not seeing any toned down SBMM. πŸ™

        I did about 6 lobby skims, and the MM seemed to be the same as before.

        I played in 2 different Dom match lobbies, and it’s playing the same as before.

        Really the only difference is that 75-90% of the lobby are using LMGs for the Supply Drop Challenge…

        • Billy Bedlam

          SBMM aint toned down at all

          • ccrows

            Yeah, another game and a half (one thrown in mid-match) and it’s the same.

            Same as before, just with LMGs everywhere on Dom…

          • Dagger_X333

            What’s SBMM??

          • Dagger_X333

            Nvm figured out it’s Skilled Base Match Making lol, but yea I do hate that but it’s not as bad as everyone makes it out to be, if you’re truly a good player u won’t even tell the difference

          • Billy Bedlam

            skill based matchmaking

        • Ryan Ras

          There is noooooo sbmm. How can every one go negative in my team 80 percent of the time. Even when lagging i go positve most of the time. Doub these noobs are on my level

          • ccrows

            Yeah ummmmm NO.

            Every time I log into my secondary scrub account, I am paired up with “Newbies & No Thumbs”.

            Go back to my main account, and it’s back to the “League Play in Pub BS”.

            SBMM is a thing, and sadly it’s still a thing… πŸ™

          • JaeXun

            More like sbmm only works for the opposing team, I get stuck with guys who seem to have never played cod before. So in short, sbmm works like a charm… Against me.

        • Mr Doge

          Can you please drop the whole SBMM thing? Your literally the only one here who still cares. I get it you hate the lag, but just stop. It really is annoying. The guy who you replied to didn’t even mention SBMM. The whole point of reply is to comment on the topic the person had been talking about.

          • Trizay

            Please speak for yourself. There are still a lot of people who are annoyed with SBMM. I don’t usually experience lag so my reason for disliking it is different. I personally hate SBMM because it makes to game more difficult and more inconsistent (thus, less fun). I have good games so much more rarely than any COD game I’ve ever played.

          • Mr Doge

            I didn’t say I don’t experience SBMM. I sometimes do. But do you see me coming on here, replying to a comment that reads “Boy I love the new camos” with a reply “Yeah but they didn’t take away SBMM.” I don’t think all you realise but SBMM has been in every CoD. Get over yourself.

          • Trizay

            It hasn’t been in every COD. It’s been in some of the recent ones, but then the developers realized that it was a stupid idea and then removed it. A lot of people are just pissed off because SBMM has been proven countless times to be a horrible implementation and yet SHG added it anyways. I will admit that a lot of people are making too big of a deal about it but it’s still an issue nonetheless.

          • Mr Doge

            How has it not been in every CoD? I didn’t say it was prioritized as much in AW as you people claim for it to be. It’s not a stupid idea. It’s a brilliant idea. Why? Well because if I was start out fresh on a new CoD, I wouldn’t be going up against xXxPr0Sc0p3ZxXx in DaRe clan who is master prestige and has a 2 K/D. It doesn’t make any sense and I would never play the game again if I did go up against someone that skilled. I don’t think I speak for myself when not just me, but everyone else I know who plays AW, has NEVER bitched about SBMM. Never said anything ONCE. Also if it is a big issue like you say it is, do you honestly think crying about it on a fan made blog about CoD will solve it? No. SHG doesn’t have a employee dedicated to reading CI comments.

          • Trizay

            I never said complaining about it here would fix anything. I actually agreed with you that people are making too big of a deal about it. SBMM has NOT been in every COD. And for every game that it WAS in, they removed because of it’s unpopularity. I understand why it’s there and I think that it’s great for the new players. But for us experienced players, it’s annoying when in every other COD game I’ve kept a consistent 2 K/D and in this one I’m struggling to keep it at like 1.4. I don’t want to play against people on my level, because then my chances of having a good game go down drastically. I’d rather play against random players who have a good connection and have a bad game every once and awhile but do well most of the time.

          • Mr Doge

            I appreciate you for agreeing with me, but you have to think from a developer point of view. For someone starting new, if they get killed by a master prestige, they won’t play again.With SBMM, they know they can get into a game with people at their skill level and do well. With us experienced players, yes we may sometimes lag, but we like to keep trying because we like the game and we have put too much effort into the game to give up. The thing is that the developers really only care about 2 things. Money and eSports. So if they make the game noob friendly, more people are going to buy the game. Simple as that.

          • Trizay

            Yeah, I understand from a developer point-of-view and SBMM definitely isn’t gonna get me to stop playing. But it’s still gonna get on my nerves from time to time.

          • Im okay with SBMM, But i donΒ΄t want to play against players from 13 different countries with “godmode” and the “instakill perk”. Match players based of their connection = Better gaming experience. But if you really want real SBMM, Play in the ranked playlist.

          • Markdg23

            Im only commenting on you not doing as well as you expect to do. Slap on QuickDraw with whatever weapon is your fav and BAM you got an advantage over players at the same skill margin as yourself. Not many ppl use this attachment but I find it extremely useful in this game.

          • Jimmy Pwtt

            Worst cod day of my life… Master prestige with a 1 kd on a good day… Couldnt figure out what was going on today cant do anything just horrible, ill quit this game forever if this is what they think is fair.. Developers are really messed up.. All now it sinking in why someone friended me with a 2 something kd and had seven hours played.. Great so u rewarded those that worked there butts off to prestige by putting them all in a class by themselves 1 kd me or 3 kd.. Good thinking makes a lot of moronic sense to me wow

          • ccrows

            Just this past week alone I’ve played people in Canada, Mexico, England, and Sweden when I live in CHICAGO.

            Please go on and tell me why it’s better to have lag lobbies just for the sake of finding people with similar skill “IN PUBS” over finding people with the best connection experience…

        • nikolai777

          Playing during not so odd hours (1am), am getting now “No Games Found” at least twice before joining a lobby or game.
          And because I only have 1 or 2 bars mostly during this time, I am lagging and can really feel it. The “connectivity improvements” made the lag more obvious.

          • Mr Doge

            Did you check your NAT? If its Strict or Moderate then thats the problem. But if its 2 bars, then its probably your internet. Unless of course no one plays AW in your area then your out of luck πŸ™

          • Moderate is usually NOT a problem at all.
            Strict however, Can cause big issues.

          • Mr Doge

            Yeah true but Open is always best. If you are having problems with trying to get Open NAT, try a DMZ on your router.

      • HenryDF

        Yeah…it doesn’t give you a supply drop, only an XP bonus.

        • ccrows

          Hmmm.. I got a supply drop.

          Actually 2 supply drops. (one from normal, and one from completing the challenge)

          (For everyone else), after you complete the challenge, there is not another challenge for you to do.

          Looks like it’s just gonna be a “daily one and done”…

        • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

          Same here.However a few hours later I got a “present” supply drop.

          • Mr Doge

            I kid you not, as soon as I read your reply, I got that present supply drop. I think its a Christmas thing because my mate got one before he completed the Supply Drop challenge.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Yeah got another one now.As the other’s it gave me some helmet and gloves.I want the bal-27 obsidian steed so bad,but it seems impossible for me to get it.

      • twitch/iiillilili

        Mine told me to return a flag in capture the flag…. i got a Marine SMG Loadout…. -___- lol

    • Sexy Mcgee

      I wonder how much stuff they don’t mention in these patch notes. Last patch did not mention them messing with the graphics renderer at all. However, that was probably the biggest and most welcome change. The game engine felt so much more in sync with the graphics engine. Everything felt so much more responsive. Unfortunately, it created for some unfinished frames being displayed but it’s a preferable trade off. I just hope they don’t go back to the way it was because people complain about the graphics glitches.

      • People, Look Things Up!

        Sometimes for my first 3 games I get like 10fps

  • DannyDlm

    “update is coming soon to 360, ps3 and Pc” yeah just like the previous patch..oh wait….pc still hasn’t got it…..

  • Thank god they removed the skull… I’m okay with it being a 7 killstreak. Getting better and better!

  • TheGamerBeast

    for people going to ask about the Last Update that still didn’t release for PC, Michael tweeted yesterday that it’s Coming So soon for PC it’s taking time cz looks like they’re fixing the stutters and other stuff “i have huge hopes that the update for PC will be amazing & Fix alot of stuff fingers crossed” , and about this update i’m excited to see what have they done with the System Hack

  • Juses

      • MichiganerE

        Weren’t you just calling AW “shit” in some of your previous comments?

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Which ones? Previous as in just the past couple of days, or just last month? Not sure if I called it “shit”, I was probably outraged at Zombies DLC/SBMM. It’s still the biggest overhaul of changes CoD has ever had, at least we can respect that about the developers…

      nope ive done test i have a 2.97 k.d and dace only try hards use my fuck around account where the k.d is really bad and garbage timmy no thumb players

  • TheGamerBeast

    there are reports that SBMM is gone and SYSTEM HACK is 700

    • For real?

    • Juses

      You better not be lying about the SBMM part…

      • TheGamerBeast

        open the reddit i’m really not lying

        • Juses

          just because it’s on reddit doesn’t mean it’s true

          • TheGamerBeast

            oki let’s wait and see

          • drjakeyoung

            People are testing it out on Reddit with various KD’s and are confirming it.

          • Too small testing to confirm it…

          • drjakeyoung

            Oh i know that, but although it’s not confirmed officially i am having more fun time on this game now.

          • Placebo?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Just like a 4th game mode wasn’t true?! Huh?! Lol πŸ˜›

    lol i could care less about the skull i used hard wired and still will lol, theree’s so much more wrong and thats what the community wants fixed

    • Yeah but some people don’t want to use a perk named “Takes a point from your class setup!” because system hacks were spammed every lobby.

      • Billy Bedlam

        yea i hear yea, im aground war player so its still gonna be spamed 200 points to cap ur home flag 200 points to cap b then some cap kills

  • drjakeyoung

    Skill based mach making has been removed! Fuck yea!

    • Billy Bedlam

      how do you know?

      • drjakeyoung

        Just got into a lobby with people ranging from level 15 to master. Also, not only do they feel smoother but it is finding best connection 50/50 like the older cods.

        • Billy Bedlam

          i just che3cked it SBMM is not out i went6 on my main where i have a 2.97 k.d all the kids in lobby where 2.5 to 3.00 k.d then on my sniping account where my k.d is relly bad and all the kids stats r bad its still there connection may be fixed but not SBMM

    • Not confirmed…

      • Kobrah

        It was never confirmed to have existed in the first place

        • Even a blind person would see sbmm in this game.

          • Kobrah

            That wasn’t my point

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Then what was it?

          • Kobrah

            My point was that they probably won’t confirm it is gone because they never confirmed it was there in the first place

          • I denied the confirmation we never got with my comment. But this time it’s little harder because it could be just a placebo and people think there is no SBMM.

          • Siftblade of Rivia

            I think the whole thing is a placebo. I mean sure, SBMM does exist, but nobody knows how much effect skill plays in the matchmaking process. It existed in all the previous CODs. BO2 had all these “sweaty tryhards” too. People seem to forget that 8/10 lobbies used to be either spawntrap or get spawntrapped. It wasn’t until really late in the game that all the “sweaties” left. So when people stayed on BO2, they were playing against mostly not so good players, since everyone who takes COD seriously was playing Ghosts. So now, when they are matched with “sweaties” they have something to blame. Makes complaining a lot easier. BO2 everyone said was the worst COD so far because of the spawns, hit detection, target finder, remingtons, PDWs, etc. I remember all the complaining. Now it’s one of the best CODs? Stop fooling yourselves. It’s the same every year. Game releases, people complain, game gets fixed, people like it, new game comes out, compare it to the fixed version of the last game, makes the current game seem terrible compared to the fixed previous one, and so on.

          • Not exactly. I played BO2 during it’s lifetime and it was fun. I quit Ghosts after a week and same thing with AW, except I’ve gone back to play a few matches after patches. But during BO1, MW3 and BO2 I could play the game. Now it just seems… boring. Don’t know if to blame the game, or myself for getting bored of cod. Maybe the last one. I should take a big break from cod before the next Treyarch’s game…

            But the fact is, streaks have been shit in the two latest cod games. That’s one reason why I kept playing older cods

          • Mr Doge

            Wow I was thinking it was Placebo to. Notice how when a new CoD comes out you think its a good game so you have a blast. Then you read all the comments on a YT video hating on the new CoD so you start to hate the game as well making you not have fun on the game. I really do think its placebo as well. Because no one actually has hard evidence that SBMM is prioritized over connection. And THANK GOD someone actually knows that SBMM existed in all the previous CoDs. THANK YOU.

          • spartanelite

            Are you sure because I still get scrubs one game and people with 3kds the next game just like the older game’s

          • I was referring to Kobrah’s comment that SBMM has been (or still is) in AW. I’m not sure of it after the patch

          • spartanelite

            Idk, I always assumed it was but I did care I still get streaks and go positive

          • HenryDF

            Tbh…like, I’m doing better in AW than I have in any other CoD. Idk if it’s because of more experience, idk if it’s because I like the jump mechanics, idk if it’s because the game just suits me.

            But, I’m still getting put with absolutely shit players. And, I’m still getting put with relatively high players too. I’m not saying SBMM isn’t there, but it really hasn’t impacted me that much at all, both negatively and positively.

          • Mr Doge

            It hasn’t impacted me either. People be like “SBMM is such as huge problem” then I get into a game and our team gets thrashed because Im Prestige 7 and everyone else in my team hasn’t even prestiged.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          No, but leaked coding proved it. SBMM was all over the place, it was one of the main algorithms of the Matchmaking process.

          • Kobrah

            I didn’t say it doesn’t/didn’t exist I simply stated it hadn’t been confirmed

        • ccrows

          Really? Cuz EVERY time I got accidentally thrown into a newbie lobby it would boot me before the match started.

          If I went to main account it was mostly against people my rank or higher.

          If I went into my scrub secondary account it was against newbies, and no thumbs.

          ^ The EXACT same behavior happened during the first month of BO2, which y’know had SBMM.

          & there’s plenty of other people that could confirm the same results too…

          • Kobrah

            Yes, but it was never OFFICIALLY confirmed was the point I was trying to get across

    • Juses

      Rumor does not = true

    • drjakeyoung

      Obviously we nee people with a 2 or 3+ KD to double check this, but for me, everything is lot better.

  • Vermell

    I honestly can’t help but to laugh at all the people who come here asking about PC. In terms of CoD, PC is pretty much dead since consoles are where the vast majority of players (read: profits) are.

      PC gaming is not dead….

            They haven’t. It still plays the same, just with less System Hacks :/

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            They could have tweaked it at least slightly. Maybe or maybe not.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It’s Sledgehammer, they suck up to the eSports community so they won’t get rid of it sadly :/

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Thought so. :/ and yeah screw e-Sports, I tried tellin ya that!

          • jordanxbrookes

            Did you know Mr. Condrey said he’s catering to everyone? What a load of BS. Sledgehammer said months ago that they are making this game for eSports, and now people like me who would always defend CoD any day of the week are hating on this game. When CoD was made for public players, competitive still ran well, yet when CoD is made for eSports, public is just bad. I just hope Treyarch deliver us a fantastic game.

          • HenryDF

            You’re hating on it because of SBMM though?

            I mean, this CoD requires more skill. It requires more thinking, and just better accuracy if you want to start being more specific. But I wouldn’t say that’s because of the eSports focus, I’d say it’s just because of the new mechanics (which I really don’t think were added for eSports, trust me).

            I mean, I hate that eSports is getting so much attention from SH (things like having Nadeshot round to the studios to play early etc.). eSports is a minority, such a minority, but it still gets attention because it’s relatively high profile. I don’t like that. I think SH should be trying to appeal to the majority, which is the normal gamer like you and me.

            But in the game itself…I dunno. I can’t really see any obvious negative changes made to make AW more suitable for eSports. What’ve you found?

          • Achillez

            eSports may be a minority however Football players are a minority as well, and the game is adjusted to them not the majority of the casual players. Pro Leagues make money… Money talks bullshit walks

          • Mr Doge

            Couldn’t be any more right. Some people are way too thick and always have to try to hate the game because of the bad things instead of trying to like it because of the many good things about it. This game can easily be called one of the best CoDs. Even up there with CoD 4. The first CoD in 7 years thats different is AW. And people are blaming SBMM because they play the game like Ghosts.

            Sorry dude I know it sucks but those guys will say anything to get everyone on the hype train. “Fuck you last stand”, “Ghosts will have dedicated serves” etc. πŸ™

          • Mr Doge

            Please explain how public is bad? Why because they took out C4? I didn’t hear anyone complain. Because they took out over powered burst weapons? I didn’t hear anyone complain. Every year its, “This game is bad” or “eSports” ruined it but they never explain why its bad or how eSports ruined it. So Mr JordanxBrookes, because you think your clever, please do explain to all us why you think eSports ruined the game.

      • shantzonpoint

        No it’s not. CoD is dead on pc tho. So sad to see too. CS:GO is to pc what cod is to console basically.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          CS is overrated lol

          • meow

            stop that trolling, bad sillyback!

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            nou

          • Yeah, I personally don’t think learning to compensate for broken mechanics means a game takes ” skill ” but it’s just my opinion.

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        PC COD is.

    • Doesn’t mean that Sledgehammer Games can just ignore the whole pc community…

      • TheGamerBeast

        the huge update coming for PC will tell, fingers crossed

    • spartanelite

      I do too I always make type lol,and the people who mainly complain about CoD on PC probably are the same people who don’t even buy it

    • meow

      PC CoD isnt dead its just with the console focused CoD’s are so bad and cheap they dont bother and stick to the better and higher skill leveled CoD’s.. CS 1.6 is an example in a way.

      agree of course the current profits are on console so itsn not going to change anytime soon but the more the focus the game is on console is the worse the CoD seems to be… PC focused ones like BO2-1, WaW and CoD4 are rated the top of the series.

  • Gooby

    Patch after patch; love you SHG

  • drjakeyoung

    Either skill based matchmaking has been removed or seriously toned down.

    • Michael

      What do you mean? How do you know it’s not in the game anymore?

      • ccrows

        This, although TBF I haven’t had a chance to play yet…

  • Guywithbrains

    New patch for PS4 and now these appeared:

    > 1st host migration for me
    > Waiting for connection before match starts…
    > Low level players
    > Enemy team players have same amount of kills as me
    > Also game somehow seemed a little bit smoother but maybe it is just my feeling

    Oh and everyone has started to use MK14 for example…

  • scrotesmd

    SBMM gone, if thats the case happy freaking christmas folks πŸ™‚ I want christmas noobs in my stocking this year!!

    • Guywithbrains

      That’s what I talked earlier… killing noobs after SBMM.

      But I have to admit matches so far haven’t been unfair…

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Sounds like the game has been improved significantly, then. So glad to hear… Hopefully it’s the best CoD since 2010…

        • People, Look Things Up!

          And battlefield! ?

      It’s not gone.

  • Duke of hazard

    So I heard SBMM is gone.

  • Daily Challenge supply drops don’t work, lel.

  • Best guest

    Mine either.

  • tweeateer birdie

    Did they remove skill based match making

    • jordanxbrookes

      *Skill and it’s being reported but nothing has been confirmed.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        I’d be pretty damn happy. But I’m never getting this game because Zombies is too expensive πŸ™

    • Dolanz Cuz

      Score based match making WUT? You mean Skilled based match making

      • tweeateer birdie

        Yea mistakes

  • Kobrah

    I completed the daily challenge but didn’t receive a supply drop?

  • Thecallrocks

    omg omg omg omg…SBMM SHG please if this is true…. Then this game is back into best game of year!!! And connection if they fix it properly then I don’t know…this game will be the best πŸ˜€

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Shaping up to be the best CoD in a while!

    • ScOott

      Yet u still not buying it ? Lmao what is your thought process I would love to know

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Nope, the only way I’d get it was if Zombies wasn’t included in the Season Pass. But it’s $100.

        • ScOott

          But u just said it’s shaping up to be the best cod in a while I haven’t got season pass yet waiting till after Christmas, doesn’t have to be an all I one purchase

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I never said I’m never officially getting it, just not in this current time, it’ll probably be mid next year.

    • Carrisi

      Don’t get it, it will only dissapoint.

      • tweeateer birdie

        Is it possible for them to make a Remasterd version of cod like cod 4 ,waw or mw2

        • Carrisi

          Yes I’m hoping for a modern warefare collections although no doubt they will change things and ruin them

  • Best guest

    Fix connection bwhahaha ha now that’s a laugh, I know their trying but they have no idea what their doing.

    It’s bloody 10x worse now.

    How can it be worst?

  • psychoticbutcha

    Done the daily challenge got the xp………no supply drop looked everywhere incase it you had to click summit restarted game nothing took two games to do tho challenge but not point I was promised a supply drop lol *stamps feet like a 2 year old*

  • shantzonpoint

    If the connections don’t get better, removing sbmm will be moot. I mean if you’re still getting matched up with people all over the world, the game will still play inconsistent.

    However, I think this is likely going to take a big step in solving the lag problem.

    • Guest

      You’re getting matched up all over the world BECAUSE of SBMM.

      • shantzonpoint

        Yes I’m aware of that. πŸ™‚ If sbmm has simply been toned way down, then players will still have lag. They need to base matchmaking off of latency solely.

        • Huge Big Al

          I don’t get this whole problem people are having with lag? I seen to not have any problems at all. Try port fowarding if possible and it may fix all your problems! πŸ˜‰

          • got do with u?

            Maybe you’re the host, or close to the servers πŸ˜‰

          • Huge Big Al

            Doubt I’ll be host for most games, but possibly could be close to the servers πŸ˜›

          • shantzonpoint

            I was having extremely inconsistent gameplay like so many others are. It is a problem that exists. I was getting paired with people from central Mexico to the UK (I live in Michigan). I bought a netduma router and ever since i can control the distance of host I can connect to, the game has played much more consistent. I still get some bs moments here and there but overall it’s been much better.

  • jordanxbrookes

    SBMM is still in AW. My mate used two level 50 accounts, one with a 1.2 K/D and another with a 0.3 K/D. On the 1.2 K/D account, he was being paired with players with a high score and high K/D, whereas with his 0.3 K/D account, he was being paired with players with a low score and low K/D. He also took screenshots too as proof. Sorry guys, SBMM is still in AW -_-

    • SPAWNST4R

      this patch just mentions a few challenge tweaks and a graphical tweak to a scoresteak yet idiots are screaming and shouting YEAH BEST GAME EVER COZ NO SBMM NOW !! lol

      • meow

        CoD community in a nut shell xD *stupid people believe in what they hear

      • shantzonpoint

        I think placebo effect is in full blown butter lather……….lol.

  • tweeateer birdie

    I don’t understand how people bitch soo much about system hack … When u have a counter for that .. I don’t know if enybody noticed it’s very easy to get streaks like warbird but there’s counters for that blind eyes and that cool new stinger they gave us … People (If ) or after they fix sbmm on the game please please dont bitch about enything else … Try asking your self what would every one want (ask) your selves that.

    • System hack was spammed, so most people don’t want to waste a point in a perk for something that shouldn’t be in the game as it is, so your argument is invalid.

      • tweeateer birdie

        Not this time buddy you are rong you gonna have to do a lil more studying … Let me help you out because you don’t understand the big picture you have to look at the game from beginning before the bal 27 patch … Everything was perfect back then there wassent to much system hacks right ? Listen most people now in days don’t wanna spend enything every one wants everything free in order to get something you need spend something . I never had a problem with system because I know they gave us a counter the hardwire perk so I use it I could see and I could kill in the game.

        • Yeah, but after the bal patch it only took like 4 kills to get it so it was spammed. I guess you’re the one who can’t see the big picture.

          • tweeateer birdie

            That’s exactly what I’m talking about before that bal 27 patch … You had to have bit more skill in order to get such good kill streaks now you see a noob or a try hard running to that flag and next thing you know you see fire coming from above . Lol

    • Carrisi

      System was as bad as sbmm, the counter perk was in the wrong slot as you already need blast suppressor and toughness.

      • tweeateer birdie

        Yea it was bad because it was to easy to get ..and sbmm I definitely will agree with you on that no questions asked … I’m going try out the game like at 8 pm just woke up …to see if the changes really impacted the game πŸ˜‰

  • Underdog BO1 FTW!

    Fuck PC! Moving to console next year. All players on PC plays csgo and dota jesus..
    because of you guys PC are consider as last gen for them

    • meow

      because they are well built developed games unlike some games

  • HenryDF

    There’s also a new Daily Challenge feature to earn Supply Drops (eg. today’s is 30 SMG kills in the Most Pit playlist)

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Really? GL with that, I bet that playlist is full of sweaty palmers!

      • HenryDF

        Looks like it’s broken though xD

    • It’s a random daily challenge for everyone and I didn’t get a supply drop from completing mine

      • HenryDF

        I didn’t get one for completing mine either…must be broken.

    • Jack

      Mine is 25 Shotgun kills in the tdm playlist

  • modernpoika

    SBMM is toned down i have played it for a good hour. Feels smoother than before and HBRA has been buffed

  • People, Look Things Up!

    I still don’t have the dlc camos!! I bought them all but when I go to put them on, they’re locked, and when I go to the store, it says “Purchased”!! WTF!

    • HenryDF

      Restore your purchases/licenses. That normally works for me on PS4, though idk how it works on Xbox.

      • People, Look Things Up!

        I’m on xbox one

    • Tricky VIk

      “I looked things up, found alot of ‘things’..”

      • People, Look Things Up!

        Lol wow man ? any help on my specific issue?

  • Billy Bedlam

    SBMM is still there

    • PatPatPat

      …please explain how SBMM causes lag?

      • Almighty_Loaf

        The game prioritizes matching you up with players around your skill level instead of trying to find matches with the least amount of lag between all players. So you’ll be fighting people who have better connections while you’ll be put on a team that mysteriously all have shitty 300+ping. The netcode is already fucking bad and SBMM just makes it worse.

        • PatPatPat

          Thanks for explaining that, But hell, i don’t see why i should be complaining, i must be the luckiest player in the world, because i never lag. (when i do, it’s nothing big, just a little ‘hmph’ if you know what i mean)

      • Billy Bedlam

        well instead of region matchmaking they go bye skill i.e K.D and they match you up with the same skill level as you so you coud end up playing with people from all over the world and there you go lag all day

        • PatPatPat

          but i never lag…

          • Tricky VIk

            “While you may never lag, other people have the problem so yeah, I’m glad you’re having a good experience from the game, but still I think it needs a tweak for us who get paired with people on the other side of the world.”

        • Cat hunter

          actually they go off S.P.M.

          • Billy Bedlam

            nah i did testing on this they go off k.d trust me theres a way to check k.ds and what not

          • Cat hunter

            No way that’s the way it is, going off kd doesn’t even make sense.

          • Billy Bedlam

            well its true mancuz i know guys with reverse bossted accounts and they have a 500+ SPM and he get noobs

          • Billy Bedlam

            yea man if you have a 0-1.00 k.d thats the lobbys you get, if you have a 1-2 then thats the lobbys and so on i swear man no joke

  • Michael

    I’ll give AW another shot. Haven’t touched it in 2 weeks but I’m not expecting anything good out from this.

  • Who cares

    the game still sucks ass

    • PatPatPat

      then why are you here?

  • “Update is coming soon to PC”

  • PatPatPat

    so let me just get one thing straight, SHG works their asses of to produce new updates for you about every other week, and you people still find it necessary to complain? i get it, you all hate SBMM, but could you guys at least be a little more grateful? i find it annoying that, after they patch their game, you people still find something to be upset about…

    • meow

      CoD has been around too long not to know what people want and to be broken like this.

      • PatPatPat

        Damn, you motherfuckers need to find something to be happy about, i’m about done with all the negative comments. over the past month i have not seen any positive comments on advanced warfare…it’s not even a bad game.

    • J4MES

      Perhaps if they did a better job in the first place; they wouldn’t need to patch it? Patches are an easy ‘get out of jail’ card for developers to release games and then worry about fixing such issues that shouldn’t have even made it past Q&A testing. The amount of flaws, developer-oversights and matchmaking issues in AW is completely unacceptable for a brand of this magnitude and the funding such a project receives. People are far too forgiving these days

      • PatPatPat

        Mind you, no game is perfect…also, i’d like to stop seeing comments saying the game is BROKEN. it is not broken, it is just a little…special, here and there…

    • Almighty_Loaf

      It’s because things such as weapon/scorestreak balances and some tweaking here and there of other aspects of the game such as multiplayer menu alterations… doesn’t mean jack shit if the game is unplayable. For example, they nerfed the BAL. Hooray, right? Nope, the game still has such a horrible netcode that half the players in the lobby will show up as 1-bars. If you try to shoot an enemy player, they’ll soak up around 15 of your bullets before they turn around and kill you in a single shot. CoD Ghosts was a fucking CoD, but even that game had a better netcode than Advanced Warfare.

      here’s something to put the lag in perspective: having a 1-bar connection in Modern Warfare 3 is more favorable than having a 2-bar in Advanced Warfare. Just goes to show Sledgehammer really fucked up their netcode.

      • PatPatPat

        Well maybe i just don’t understand it. i rarely lag, and when i do it’s nothing big. just…find something to be happy about, yeah? there has to be something you like about the game.

        • Baldmanz_RAGE

          Why does everyone forget from year to year that the launches are buggy. The only game i was furious over was Ghosts. The only redeeming quality was the hit detection was good and the lag was minimal. But they failed everywhere else. Now for Advanced Warfare I have a few games here and there that are laggy but for the most part it plays good. To me the real issue are the spawns which I don’t think they can do anything about because you get to any part of the map too quick. Sledgehammer are working hard to correct issues and no one gives them any credit. No game is perfect or ever will be perfect. All you can do are make adjustments periodically to make the experience better than it was. They can’t please everyone but they are at least trying. This game with its flaws is light years better then that crap pile they called Ghosts. IMO!

  • Best guest

    That’s because it’s worse not better!

  • kplem

    i dont like the game but i will give credit where credit is do. now tbh if this game has 9v9 no SBMM 24/7 defender id play it! lol defender in the only map i like in the game, i loved patrolling the middle area with my K5

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      “loved” AKA you’re done? πŸ™

      • kplem

        well pretty much i aint buying it again and for some reason i cant find a place to rent next gen games in Australia it is kinda annoying :(. im not a fan of the jump thing in COD it is just me it can be fun but that is not the COD i like, plus like i said i COMPLETELY hate the maps, streaks, guns. im currently addicted to destroying people on strikezone 24/7 with my K7 rapid fire and foregruip, ICU, Agility, Scavender, Blind eye, Dead Silence, and C4, streaks IMS, Sentry gun, Helo Pilot ! having a blast.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Ghosts? :O that game is the definition of terrible lol but play what you enjoy!

          • GinsuVictim

            Ghosts does so many things better than AW. I enjoyed it daily for the past year. Never understood the hate…

          • kplem

            it is like 80% of the time, but like i said if you get into good lobbies with rushers on ground war and strikezone 24/7 it’s a very good game, it is SO much better on PS4 than xbox 360 and PS3

  • Tricky VIk

    “Anyone else notice the symbol for the supply drop when you earn them is a present box?..”
    -on PS3-

  • alex

    They need to fix the glitch on Detroit were people can get on top of all the buildings and just dominate

  • “-Matchmaking improvements.
    -Connectivity improvements.”

    Hmm.

  • TheGamerBeast

    i guess SBMM not removed but definitely -Matchmaking improvements.-Connectivity improvements.

  • afafhal

    They didn’t remove SBMM. Fuuuuccck. Anyways past 8 games K/D +3.5
    What means matchmaking improvement?

  • bt48

    BAL-27 recoil is all over the place now

  • moonwalker925

    My AE4 on my Xbox One finally has unlocked, just like my Xbox 360 version did last week ! BUT my premium camo , playercard and exos I bought on the 360 are showing for the most part as purchased on the Xbox One, but still locked ! Cant they get this down already ??? If having two platforms working correctly is too much, lets just move on and have only Xbox One has the BO3 or whatever it is in 2015.

  • legitimentgamerz

    Also the ak12 has had a debuff with the gun having extra recoil

  • sTb

    I still can’t put anything other than optics on my base ak12. Things been broke since the first tu

  • legitimentgamerz

    also where is the improved spawn logic… oh wait there is none. i used to leave some games. now i leave them all the game has got worse

  • Tim Vikouski

    they just trolled everybody again ,the patch was so small that it did nothing for match making it still sucks ,they better hurry BF comes out next month and im still not buying the dlc maybe if they cut the price in haft but the way the game plays now i dont think so

  • TROLL TIDE

    Tbh people need to stop complaining. All because you can’t do good like in past cods doesn’t mean this one is bad. All because you get matched up with people with your skill you’re mad because you can’t destroy? Sound like some pussies cause you wanna just destroy noobs. To be the best you have to beat the best, not beat the worst. But hey I’m having fun with game idk bout you guys, we need to be more appreciative to what they are doing for us, SH listens and acts on what we want. Stop complaining and appreciate cod before there’s no more of it.

  • Underdog BO1 FTW!

    Got this update for PC

  • RockerxxRicardo .

    I’m just hoping they fix a issue where some people like myself can’t find any games at all.

  • Ryumoau

    very awesome update. I’m glad they also increased the points needed for system Hack, instead of just removing the annoying X thing.

  • killerbunniesKB

    finaly but they only changed the amount of points needed to get system hack and took away the skull its still a very annoying score streak and its still really easy to get i could most likely get 3-4 a match and yes they should be some what annoying and disoranting but its just not fun when you have one every 5 seconds i wish they would have added something else to the system hack like maybe a cooldown period before any one on your team can use a nother system hack or perhaps make it not last as long.
    ps.i used no periods lol XD

  • MiguelTheVictim

    I hope they didn’t remove SBMM, its so amazing!!!

    • SlyCooper5555 .

      o_O what r u smoking?

  • SlyCooper5555 .

    Why don’t I get supply drops like everyone else? I only get gear. :/

  • Jay

    Fixed connection issues they said.. lmfao I was jumping around outside riot and somehow got killed inside the prison. Was lagging so hard my character stayed inside that shit

  • TheShadowReaper

    i really wonder what do they need to get in order to get rid of SBMM? death threats on Twitter? seriously…

    • Freeze

      If they did it bby local, then I would go against a bunch of noobs. PLease sledge :3

  • z3r0 bandwidth

    people cry to much over this game. More hardcore modes please…..

  • Cole

    System hack isn’t fixed, just played game of dom and it was system hack spam both ways

    • Baldmanz_RAGE

      Sledgehammer needs to do what Treyarch did for score in dom. They had only 50 points for the first flag at the start of the game and after the halfway break. By shorting everyone that 150 points it would mean they would have to get an extra couple of kills. I’m telling you Treyarch nailed the formula(except for TDM). Sledgehammer basically copied everything else why not this. I also think 800 would of been a better score for the system hack. Also while I’m on the subject. The collected tags in KC should be 100 if you get your own kill.

  • MyOpinionWhat

    Yeah about time. I hope no bigger issues arise cuz god knows how long it would take you guys to fix that. smh

  • Spodermen

    My challenge is too capture a flag in CTF

    • Mr Doge

      Lol my mates one was to get 30 friendly tags in Kill Confirmed.

  • JoZer805g

    Praise our lord and Savior

    Doge

  • lolol

    I know it’s less anoying now but I thought the system hack nerf was going to make people use it less but I guess not my first game after the update and all I kept hearing is ENEMY SYSTEM HACK!

  • Tim Vikouski

    so was anything fix hell no another troll on us

  • DannyDlm

    Annnnnd they buffed the EM1….Totally unnecessarily since it was already stupid good anyhow…but hey Why not Add MORE damage to it -_-

  • Honestly, I feel that the “connectivity updates” are simply causes a placebo effect. Suddenly the game is light years better. The question is – is it, or does it just feel that way because they said it did. Oh by the way, I think raising the price on System Hack was alright, but taking out the skull is crazy. That is what made it so menacing.

  • ShadowRonald
  • nammion

    They dont need to tune anything. No matter what they try to fix, this game will always be shit. Another fail in a row by sludgehammer and infinity ward. Cod used to be known for it fluid gameplay. Titanfall plays a hell of alot smoother than this crap

    • Ak74u

      Stop complaining about cod if you don’t like it don’t play it I love it and advanced warfare is not even bad

      • nammion

        I play and like cod. Not ghost and aw. I got my opinion about the game like u do. I feel like it sucks and thats just being real. Its as bad or almost as bad as ghost for me. Probably just a hair better but thsts about it

      • nammion

        I like cod but this game is trash. Sorry if u dont like my opinion but its the truth

  • nammion

    The can update this game all they want, it still doesn’t play smooth

  • Stefan Lang

    SKILL FUCKING BASED FUCKING MATCHMAKING! Take this shit out! I literally just watched myself pair up at 5th prestige with kids who didn’t prestige yet, fucking level 20 noobs then the lobby breaks and instantly puts me in a lobby with people my prestige or higher. More proof that that shit exists!

    I really have to say this im sorry but sbmm is still in in the game they tuned it down by 5 % I’m not 100 % sure but that’s what it feels like ….it’s still in the game we are still playing against super try hard sweaty people I’ve played like about 30 games on core and hardcore

    And one more reason is that remember on black ops 2 you had the option to choose what connection you want to play on .. Guess what there’s no option to pick .. I don’t know I just don’t trust sledgehammer enymore ???????

    Does anyone have any problems with the screen tearing up while playing Advanced Warfare? I notice a tear in my screen keeps pop up for a few frames, hope this a glitche and SHGames will fix it.

    Since yesterdays update, unbearable lag in game and in lobbies, still cannot attach anything other than an optic to my base ak12, now i have ghosts on my screen. Yes, you can see it here. SHG and IW teaming up once again for Call of Duty Ghosts Advanced Warfare 2.

  • sTb

    Oh and still no new daily challenges. WTG SHG!!!!!!!!

  • Cat hunter

    are they not patching the 360 and ps3 versions anymore?

    • Stefan Lang

      High Moons Studios works on the patches for Last Gen so they don’t release at the same time.

    Thank you! Could use some harder punishment for people leaving ranked play… Often 4v2.. Could add an 30 min ban

  • K.E.M

    Thank GOD!
    The giant skull was OP on it’s own!

    If you want to say something about the game just say it don’t let the trolls and no lives ruin what you want to say … They are just are just
    Gonorrhoea To the cod community… And then yet they wanna be posting stupid shit like “oh hey I’m am exited for the dlc coming it’s something new i love this game it’s so cool hehe “

    Not so fast sherlock……… When this patch came out on my Xbox One, the micro DLC I bought on the 360 still was not working ( should have been unlocked per SHG Michael C ) but my AE 4 was. So a partial victory over frustration. Last night , went on to check on everything, and now the AE4 is LOCKED again !!! Please , if having it on both consoles is too much to get right, then for BO3, please keep it on current gen Xbox One/PS4 and leave well enough alone

    All I know is that this update makes me play so much worse. My KDR has taken a hit.

    Matchmaking and connectivity? Ha sure.

    I have joined the group of asking to remove SBMM. It isn’t because I am paired with people as good or better than me. It’s because now I see people reverse boosting (Killing themselves to lower their stats to play against people that isn’t that good to begin with to make it easier to “pub stomp”). I mean honestly, there is a rank playlist for playing against people your skill anyways. So what is the point in SBMM in non-ranked?

  • RePz Supremacy

    Am I the only one having weird lighting issues on Atlas Gorge on the 360? It’s like an orange tint but once I get inside a building it’s normal.

  • Michael Korleone

    What about the multiple freezing issues in the main menu after a match ends? It happens all the time,in ps3 at least. Im disgusted

  • bob
