UPDATE: Due to network issues that effected PlayStation Network (PSN service has now been restored for both PS4 and PS3) and the Xbox Live issues, the Double XP in the One Shot playlist has been extended until Dec. 30th at 9AM PT. Stay tuned for more updates.


Original Story: 

Sledgehammer Games has turned on Double XP for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on all platforms today in the new One Shot playlist, and the Double XP in this playlist will end on Dec. 29th at 9am PT. The One Shot playlist will remain in the Bonus Playlist category.

The new One Shot mode is a sniper-only playlist, and features five classes for fans to use (create-a-class is disabled while playing in this mode). The playlist has decreased health for players, and each class features the MORS sniper rifle, with no secondary weapons. This new mode was designed by the development team and with the help of OpTic NaDeSHoT:

Due note, because of server issues on all platforms and because of PlayStation Network issues for many, Sledgehammer Games has stated that they will provide updates on Double XP extension. Stay tuned for more information on that and for information on network statuses.

    “with the help of OpTic NaDeSHoT”

    *kills self*

    • Paok99

      Why?

    • I know right.

  • Finally they did something like this, and the classes are good too! Bravo SHG.

    Hoping for more stuff like this in the future 🙂

    • No thermal class…I think they fucked up in that aspect.

  • jordanxbrookes

    I’m fine with there being a sniper-only playlist since it has been requested by many people for years, but the fact the classes were made by NaDeSHoT shows how much SHG suck-up to eSports. I may dislike quickscopers, but if you’re gonna do it right, at least have the classes made by members of FaZe and SoaR.

    • These classes are perfect though

      • jordanxbrookes

        I’ll give it a go at some point, but still should’ve been done by actual quickscopers and snipers.

        • HenryDF

          I don’t see why SHG needs to get Nadeshot involved at all, even eSports as a whole.

          All Nadeshot has done is sit there an go “yeh, I like the MORS, and I’m gonna make a class with a MORS with each attachment”.

          These classes are so dull – SHG working on their own, using their own initiative, could have at least designed one for each Sniper, with attachments balancing them all.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Because SHG suck-up to eSports, that’s why. Who got to play the game early? eSports players. Who had a say in the MP? eSports players? Who do Sledgehammer only care about? The 1% of the community, that being eSports players.

          • HenryDF

            It looked like IW were holding off for a bit with the whole “we <3 eSports and love the taste of Nade's asshole", the focus never got too bad with them.

            SHG tho…they were going wrong the moment they invited eSports players to play AW early. Stuff like this is BS. The fans matter, not the pros.

            How many more playlists designed by pros are we gonna see? Because from what I've seen in the past, its the community playlists that work, not the crappy ones made by the devs.

            eSports is a minority. The millions who buy the game? They're the people who matter.

    Cool… I think

  • kplem

    why put this failure of a game? imagine this on BO2 MW3 MW2. as well as optic nadeshot? this ass kissing is so sad as well as the cause of the slow death of a once great franchise

    • Skinner

      So true!

  • Guywithbrains

    This mode is welcome! I always wanted to play with sniper but it is almost impossible because I play Domination.

  • sal

    Of all the times to make a sniper only playlist, they waited till nadeshot said it. Not the kind of playlist I want but close.

  • HenryDF

    Aha what? Why were mine and Jordan’s comments deleted?

    • Skinner

      Because Charlie Intel snort activisions cum

    • Lol… Please CharlieIntel team, that’s the truth.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Because they don’t like the truth.

      scum bags are getting paid by actvison they are becoming a joke as the days go by. keshav is an ass kisser he pretty much always denies facts about cod as well as i remember he said BO2 was the best selling cod as well as defending fucking tina blindly smh

      • jordanxbrookes

        Don’t get me wrong, Keshav is a cool guy, but he even told me himself that comments are only deleted if it includes racism. Since when was telling the truth of Sledgehammer sucking up to eSports racist in any way? I don’t know, some people just can’t take opinions and facts :/

        • Ronald McDonald

          You lost your MOD!!!

          • Ronald McDonald

            No, I realized when it happened but only made my account the other day and thought I should let you know.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Lol, I’m not stupid, I think I’d know if I was a Mod right now since Moderators have a big “MOD” sign next to them haha.

          • Ronald McDonald

            But how did you loose your MOD?

          • jordanxbrookes

            I didn’t lose it, me, Alex and Keshav had a talk because he thought people would be intimidated by us since we had power, and after the talk we agreed to not be Mods anymore.

          • Why not remove the tag and tell people you’rent a mod but secretly be one?

            what if you are?

        • Mario Rivera

          Charlie intel is in on activisions dirty work, if they dnt kiss activision ass they miss out on going to cod pre release events and every1 knows that cod pre-release time is the time when ppl are most thirsty for cod news/info. Furthermore, if public interest in cod declines, so does the amount of ppl visiting this site aka ad revenue.

      • Keshav Bhat

        Do you know what a Community Manager does? People were overly sexist to Tina and gave her shit for when she doesn’t even code the game nor make decisions for it. I’ll continue to defend her and any other CM out there getting grief from people who don’t even know what a CM does.

        • jordanxbrookes

          I felt sorry for people like Tina, Vahn and 402 because they didn’t deserve all that abuse.

          • kplem

            if i was the CM i wouldnt care i would just take a look at who is hating on me lol a bunch of twelvies, the mature part of the cod community (if it exists) said their requests politely

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yeah but not everyone is like you, people’s feelings can hurt and giving all of this abuse and threats isn’t necessary most of the time.

          • kplem

            it’s not me but come on what do you expect being CM of one of the most toxic/naughtiest community ever?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Don’t you mean “the greatest community ever”? That’s what Michael Condrey said lmao.

          • kplem

            haha yeah lol another great lie

        • kplem

          you wanna defend her huh? you want those boobs on your face right 😀 lol. boo fucking hoo that’s her bloody problem, a woman that weak shouldnt take that position, she should of known better she knew what she was getting herself into, she blocked me fully because i told her to fix her game and that it was pissing me off , i wasnt sexist or anything do you know how many people she has blocked because she is just a plain bitch? blocks people that report hackers, not reporting on the game not taking feedback all about her muffins. hope she gets fired we need another david vondarhaar in that position he take the shit like a man. ill give that bald head some respect in this subject.

      • Keshav Bhat

        “scum bags are getting paid by Activision.” I’ve made a grand total of $0 from the day I started for the work I’ve done on all the sites, while managing this on top of school assignments.

        I’m not making any money. I read comments all the time. I interact with fans here and we all learn from our mistakes. Yeah, I already apologized for deleting their comments. All my fault and my mistake. But calling me an ass kisser is a little too much when I haven’t made a single cent from working from anyone.

        • kplem

          i accept your apology, but i cant trust you with it lol

    • jooker-jr

      It’s probably the way you said it.

      • jordanxbrookes

        There’s no other way of saying it if it’s the truth.

    • ? can you please rewrite it or tell us what you said.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Summary: I complained about SHG sucking up to eSports and I made the suggestion that if you’re going to do it right, then get help and recommendations from actual snipers/quickscopers from FaZe and SoaR, and apparently that was so bad that it got deleted -_-

        • OH. kk thanks

        • ccrows

          Here let’s take it to the next level for future COD games:

          1 – Have a QS lobby (like this) that makes QSing easy like MW2 did with the Intervention. (let people get all their feeds in there without disrupting anyone else)

          2 – Make the rest of the lobbies with slower ADS with the SRs.

          3 – Get rid of SBMM (since it takes forever to get rid of once it’s already in the game)

          ^ Use those 3 simple rules IMHO would go a long way with making the majority of people happy in future COD sequels.

    • ccrows

      Suggestion to CI – maybe make a mod list like Gamefaqs has. (AKA what does and what doesn’t get modded and please let us have a little input on it)

      ^ IMO it makes things a little bit easier for BOTH sides…

      • No need. This is an open comments section and will remain that way, excluding extreme racism or offensive images/porn and so on. Realistically 1-5 comments for every 1000 are actually deleted.

        We have reviewed ‘what is and isn’t ok’ on our end will be taking a more ‘hands off’ approach going forward.

        For the record, I do not delete comments – it’s all very interesting and entertaining in my eyes,

        • Mario Rivera

          Bull fucking shit, Id say about 20% of my comments get deleted and not one of them has a damn thing to do with porn or racism. Usually just strong opinions expressed in a coherent manner. What happened to u guys? CI wasnt this censored b4…

    • nammion

      Yeah they delete anything u say negative about advaced warfare. Its worse than North Korea up in here lol

    • Keshav Bhat

      My bad, didn’t fully read the comment, only read the part where you called SHGames a suck up and decided it wasn’t needed. Free speech is fully allowed here, as you haven’t seen anyone from CI delete the 1,000s of SBMM comments. We love active discussions. Always open to any sort of comments that don’t cross a certain line.

      But, calling them a suck up to eSports when they just asked Nadeshot for assistance on making the best classes is a little over the top. Like what would people say if Nadeshot wasn’t even mentioned on the SHGames site?

      Thanks.

      • jordanxbrookes

        It’s not just over NaDeSHoT though, it’s over a number of things. I should’ve saw the early warnings when Sledgehammer said they would be focused on eSports. We the public players are the majority compared to the minority being competitive players. We don’t want SBMM in our public lobbies, but Sledgehammer are doing everything to avoid giving us an answer which frustrates us. They focused their game on balancing, and every enemy and teammate I see are wielding either an ASM1 or a Bal-27, that’s not good balancing in my eyes. The game is limited with weapons, equipment etc. (eSports removes half of the content in a normal CoD game) and I know there are variants, but I much prefer having 6 shotguns than having 3 base shotguns and 10 variants of the same shotguns. Another thing that pissed me off was that for at least a month, SBMM was turned on in Public and not Ranked Play, so when 2 patches ago when the patch notes said SBMM was turned on in Ranked Play, I thought to myself that there must be a mistake with the coding if the competitive playlist didn’t have competitive matchmaking, but still SBMM remained in Public. These are just a few things that really annoy me and shows why Sledgehammer suck-up to eSports

        This is just a separate thing, but I’m not a fan of the exo-suits in MP. It doesn’t bother me in SP, but it has strayed away from the ingredients that made Call of Duty, Call of Duty. It doesn’t feel like Call of Duty, it feels like Destiny, Titanfall, Halo and Quake mixed together with Call of Duty slapped on the case. I was a fool to believe in the AW hype, and this time round I am going to be cautious with Treyarch’s title. If I hear that their game will be focused on eSports, set in the future and has exo-suits, then already I know their game won’t do good. Imagine if Halo 6 was set in modern times, played and looked like a Call of Duty game, just with Halo 6 slapped on the case, how do you think Halo fans will react? It just wouldn’t sell as good as it would have if it was set in the year 2500.

        I’m not angry about the One Shot playlist at all, I think it’s great since sniper fans have been wanting this for years, but when I saw NaDeSHoT’s name down there, an eSports player, I just couldn’t take it anymore.

        I’m sorry if I did come on strong, Sledgehammer do focus more on the competitive scene and what they say than the 99% of public and casual players that help pay the developer’s bills and put food on the table for them and their families. It’s almost like a betrayal to the fans.

        • Guest

          Exactly… They can make the game better if they actually listened to the public players… We asked easier streaks and to fix the system hack, they did and we all ( for the most part) loved it.. We are happy when they listen to us, but they only do like 1/10th the time :/

        • Super029something

          Take your anger out on SHG not competitive players.

          Nadeshot didn’t ask to assist SHG, Competitive players couldn’t give a shit about SBMM in pubs because they mainly play Private match/Ranked and we especially couldn’t give a flying fuck about sniping.

        • Keshav Bhat

          Players have asked for change. They got a change this year. Now players are mad about Exos? So SHGames listened and added Classic Mode for those who hate Exos. This is truly the first year where Call of Duty dev had truly listened to many requests from ALL communities. BAL was OP for casual and eSports. So they adjusted it. SMGs were under performing so they buffed it.

          And many people probably don’t realize the things it takes to most likely make changes to matchmaking. I’ve been matched with lower Xmas noobs this week. Lots of times. I’ve yet to experience any major lag. I’ve actually enjoyed Advanced Warfare most since COD4 days. Of course that’s just my opinion. But, via social media it may seem that they like eSports because eSports has tremendous following. Yeah, they’re gonna have to listen to eSports cause which developer wants any stupid issues happening on a stream where 200,000 people are watching? It’s truly about business but it’s also about fans. Some eSports changes benefit casual gamers. ESports points out obvious weapon balancing issues and bugs via their streams which helps.

          We’ve been asking for a sniper mode since MW2-days. Its taken a different developer to implement this. And people still complain. Like how do CoD devs win these days? And plus matchmaking is controlled by Activision and dev teams. Decisions on that probably require tons of work and approvals.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I didn’t ask for change, I’m pretty sure the CoD haters kept saying “CoD is the same thing every year, do something different”. The Classic Playlist is pointless because the maps are built for exos so there is no point. IMO the Bal was more overused than overpowered, and they only buffed the ASM1 and MP11, but more so with the ASM1. Please point out where I have complained about the sniper-only playlist, because if you look I haven’t complained about it so I don’t know where you got that from. Every time I get into a match I’m paired with people that either are reverse boosting or are at the same score/stat/skill level. Heck even guys like TmarTn and Ali-A have made new accounts to compensate on SBMM. I want Sledgehammer to tell us themselves that SBMM is not in public anymore, but they won’t, they’ll just say “Improved Matchmaking” in their patch notes.

            I have said it before and I’ll say it again, I was a fool for believing in the AW hype because after a month down the line and I’m already done with it.

            Whatever happened to Call of Duty? Whatever happened to that simple run and gun shooter that anyone could pick-up and have fun no matter what? I don’t have fun in AW, I have frustration with it. The exo-suits were a nice idea to have in SP, but IMO it just doesn’t work with Call of Duty MP.

          • smayo

            Exactly, CoD was a game i could play for 1 year straight, now i already regret my digital purchase of AW not even 2 months after release, even worse is i cant sell this shit either

          • Keshav Bhat

            Run and gun shooter aspect of Call of Duty left when critics and fans alike complained that this franchise is getting frail and old. Of course, as Activision proved. Call of Duty is still #1, beating out so many new games this year. It’s not dead, probably won’t be until 2016, as we all know, no chance CoD goes successfully through IW’s next cycle.

            And, as I hoped you knew, patch notes, blog posts, etc from SHGames have to be approved by legal and PR at Activision, so who knows what all servers items are not actually even mentioned in the notes but changed back end/front end.

            Exo-Suits, imo, brought the change that people demanded to Call of Duty. It didn’t make CoD “Titanfall”, it kept itself grounded as Call of Duty. They didn’t go over the top with nonsense stuff, they kept it simple future tech and it seems to have worked for many fans. Personally, I could never see myself playing the mess that ended up being Ghosts with how slow it is. Exo-Suits made this the fastest CoD ever (IMO).

            And as for complaining about sniper playlist, 99% of your comments in this article have been about “omg why does SHGames suck up to eSports and let NadeShot dictate the classes,” which I still don’t understand your complaints on that. Half the comments on this post wouldn’t exist if SHGames or myself had not typed in “OpTic NadeSHoT.” So many people blindly hate on him and eSports without even knowing much about how many things work. eSports is the future, why? Because all though some may say it’s the end and destroying the franchise, 200,000 viewers watched the latest event, which is intense growth and I would be worried if ATVI was NOT catering to eSports at this point. It’s free press for ATVI. Look at all the news outlets covering Call of Duty cause of eSports players? It’s fantastic for them, and you need to realize this is a money making business, just like anything else. Money dictates what happens and what changes. It’s always gonna be like that. Money is always the prime thing, regardless of what industry we are in.

            Yes, SBMM needs to go. No, SHGames has yet to comment on it. But to use that to say they are only listening to eSports? I don’t get that part. Who knows how deep the SBMM is in their code. If you were around during MW3, you knew it took them the whole cycle of the game just to figure out the whole lag problem. While this is different, claiming that they don’t care and aren’t listening is absurd when they haven’t said “no we’re keeping SBMM” or “yes, we’ll remove it.” It’s up in the air now.

          • kplem

            GTA V puts AW to shame and you know it. esports is the future? i got cancer reading that -_-. as well as ever since ePoo the sales have gone down DRASTICALLY get that Activision cock out of your mouth and stop blindly defending this game you puppet. 200,000 watched the event? boo fucking hoo COD 4 MW2 BO1 MW3 gameplays used to get millions all the time. remember whiteboy? hutch? seananners? wings of redemption? the machinima directors in general? can go on. during COD 4 MW2 BO1 MW3? their views were over 200k MINIMUM they would average 500k-2M each video, even sometimes went to 3 million think even 6. doesnt matter the bottom line is they put esports to absolute shame. as well as COD will DIE before esports dreams about saving it. you are a blind puppet you make puke.

          • Keshav Bhat

            Don’t have any cock in my mouth buddy. We run sites for EA titles. Microsoft titles, and ATVI titles. Fan of FPS shooters. I have played GTAV multiple times. And, you’re defending YouTubers that support and promote eSports? Oh okay.

            I’m not a blind puppet. CoD is not dead, nor is it dying. I don’t see how the “biggest entertainment launch of 2014” points the franchise on to the path of death. And plus, with the amount of Treyarch fans, next year will probably be even bigger for Call of Duty and for Call of Duty eSports.

            I’m speaking of what’s gonna happen. eSports will be the future. If you don’t want to accept that, you don’t have to. eSports is getting so big that arena are being built, tons of tournaments are happening, and LoL reaching a point where it may join the Olympics. It’s what’s happening, so many people will continue to blindly hate eSports. I, at first, wasn’t a supporter of eSports. But after Black Ops 2, I’ve started to like it and see the future with it. You don’t have to accept it. It’s okay, you can be blind about it.

          • kplem

            sounds like you have it for activision then? you are so deluded it aint funny. i dont know if you have heard but i dont care about esports being a thing it pisses me off how the game is built from the ground up for it and how they give the middle finger to the public. promoting it? who from the ones i mentioned promotes it? i know hutch and seananners were competitive players from COD4 MW2? seananners said that he isnt in the competitive scene and hutch barely plays AW as much, he is always on other games like garrys mod etc, where has whiteboy and wings promoted it???? that is LoL and you idiot, a game built and loved for it’s MLG aspect, call of duty was NOT built for MLG it was made to be a simple fun game, as well and known and loved for it’s casual fun experience. it will NOT be the future for cod, cod will die before esports even gets a single chance, the FPS for esports is CS GO face it cod has no place there. why do you think BO1 at one point when first strike came out had 2.7M players on xbox alone? why do you think MW2 always had 500k-1M? why do think the player count was so high every time? because it was catered to fun not to nerds that spend their life in front of a screen. look at it now? ever since BO2 the numbers are going down SO MUCH, AW i couldn’t even find a game back in November 10th. as well look what happened to halo? it is completely irrelevant because of esports. cod isnt dying? you are further proving to be activision puppet, as well as AW took the player count out i wonder why? treyarch? are you serious the ones who brought this cancer to cod? give me a break they are just sick and hate AW early that is all, cod cycle happened pretty early. as well as the sales will still be LOW. look at the sales drop going from MW3 to AW, LOOK at the player count, NO ONE is playing AW it is a failure same as ghosts was what the hell are you reading? dont you read the facts? jeez. Olympics? wow how pathetic and sad, what the fuck are you athletes? like hell you are, the biggest poison in the esports community is thinking they are athletes for sitting on their asses and stealing from actual athletes it is pathetic. blindly hate it? i hate it because it is ruining games that casuals who have a life play, have your little nerdsports and leave the public out of it then i wouldnt care. i cant believe you deny that esports is heavily ass kissed by cod devs it is pathetic. AT LEAST CS GO caters to the casuals. why do you think i didnt care about competitive on MW2? because it was irrelevant and didnt interfere with the public. get it through your head esports is killing this game get that esports dick out of your ass. the 99% want a simple fun game to play and the nerds on 1% want their little ePoop who should win? i think that answer is obvious. BTW GTA V is catching up pretty fast on AW on next gen lol. and if it is the future? god help the kids influenced by this garbage instead of playing real sports. sad.

          • Keshav Bhat

            I’m not a puppet of any company. I’ve been in the CoD scene since 2007 with release of CoD4. I’ve seen CoD’s ups and downs. Yes, of course, AW sales are lower than MW3’s. MW3 was the biggest entertainment launch of that time making $1billon in 16 days. Black Ops 2 beat that and made $1 billion in 15 days. Yea, sales aren’t up to par with older games, but to state CoD is dead? Huh? When it beat out GTAV in first month sales? When it is the biggest launch of the year? When it is the most wanted game this holiday season? When it beat out FIFA in the UK charts? Huh?

            There’s a LOT of people playing AW. Saying “No one” plays it is an obvious exaggeration.

            Keep calling them garbage and dumb; players like Nadeshot are making $1 million a year because people watch their content, people support their events, and people support their growth. The supporters of eSports greatly outweigh the haters. Just like with Call of Duty. Sadly, haters voices seems to come through the most now days. I hated CODGhosts, yet we report news here. I didn’t play Ghosts because I didn’t like it. I didn’t praise Ghosts anywhere as a good game. We never directed people to buy it, we just reported news. So I’m not a puppet.

            I don’t want to argue you with, as we are all allowed our opinions. But please don’t say eSports kids are garbage, cause that’s just rude. They are players who found a career by playing, just like YouTubers (whether it be gaming YTers or causal youtubers) do and continue to do. It’s how thing worked out, and if you don’t want to agree, that’s okay. You don’t have to. But eSports is something that appears to be here to stay and doesn’t plan on leaving. It’s a thing that’s gonna happen, and has happened.

            And just a note, passion for Treyarch exists because of Zombies and as the player count for Black Ops II is astonishing right now. Over 160k on PS3, and I think 200k on Xbox 360 last I heard. 2015 will be great. But I know that CoD is gonna see it’s end in the future. 2016 will be rough for sure, as IW has a lot to prove or things are gonna be bad for them and ATVI. But to say CoD is dying now is overrated. Come back in 2016 and say it again, then I might agree for sure with you.

          • kplem

            did i say it is dead? NO i said it is dying which is the bloody truth. what? did you read what i said? i said look at the sales FROM MW3 they are all going down (MW3>BO2>ghosts>AW) look at the pathetic loss in sales because of ePoo. WHAT outsold GTA V? for your information GTA V in total has sold 38.71M as of December 6th, sold 1B in 3 days and 800M in 1 day ON 2 CONSOLES puts cod to shame, if you are referring to the next gen versions NOTE AW came out on the 3rd-4th GTA V came out on the 18th and it is VERY CLOSE to AW (next gen versions only), and what did the article say that AW outsold GTA V when they combined AW on ALL CONSOLES?? because if that is the case GTA V will obliterate AW with it’s current gen sales count, as well as as of the week of December 6th GTA V sold 576K and AW sold 347K what a shame (PS4 only not counting current gen for obvious reasons as well as the xbox one versions on both arent in the top 10 of this list) get that cod fanboy cock out of you ass and look at the facts. as well as everyone bought GTA V on current gen yet it is every close to AW on next gen, so what the hell are you talking about? AW most wanted game? im not sure on that one, PLUS it had the cod name obviously little brainless timmy will want it and be sucked in to get it for christmas. fun fact most sold PS4 game is FIFA 15 with 4.61M then AW with 4.36K lol. it is pathetic ad sad that kids play these 17+ games and considering if you had kids you’d let them it is pathetic these kids should be playing sports not wasting their life on a fucking video game that isnt meant for their age yet you say it is rude what the fuck, you should be teaching young kids to play sports and explore the world outside not to play an adult video game, like if it was a game recommended for their age there is an argument but a game for adults? get fucked with your rude crap. boo hoo that nadeshot makes 1M for being a nerd NOTHING compared to real athletes smh, (im pretty sure he is a good guy in real life).ePoo is not for cod it is a 1% of players, ePoo is for games like CS GO dota 2, and LoL. this pushed ePoo agenda is pathetic which is destroying a once great franchise. BTW watch that video i sent and educate yourself. no shit take out zombies from treyarch cods the game will sell like 2/5 less. the people on BO2 are either kids with their little quick scopes, people that want to play cod but cant play the previous ones as they are lacking players, hacked etc. BO2 was the beginning of the death of this franchise. to say it is NOT dying clearly tells me you are a puppet. ill will give treyarch game a try ill buy it pre owned and hoping it is in WW2, but then again treyarch makes good PC ports which ill wait for the reviews and hoping they dont shove ePoo down our throats and give us a server browser. what IW is holding back for me is that that i dont want to say tina that is what is making me not wanna buy their game and their pathetic excuse for camos that pissed me off (space cats and ducky) like wtf are we? ill rent their game though. cant wait for respawn’s next game at least they love their public fanbase and dont have a toxic community. so we have GTA V vs AW well GTA V sold more, was bought because it is a breathtaking game and muched love and respected game by the devs and the people, as as well as you have rockstar who give DLCs for free and arent scum who put time in their games with pride AND gets 97 on metacritic and is the fastest selling entertainment game ever, braking records winning 200+ awards and winning GOTY, then you have AW sold less, ONLY sold because of the name and brainless little timmy, has constant pricy DLC shoved in your face and DLC already confirmed before release, piss poor devs, failure of the esports in your face which indicates a middle finger to the 99% who pay the bills, didnt win any awards, didnt get GOTY poor reviews, piss poor game except the campaign and exo survival is ok etc the clear winner GTA V LOL.

          • kplem

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=70zQpvWOb0I suggest you watch this. this buries all the lies they spread like a plague, watch from 25:30m 27:20 COD MLG in a fucking nutshell

          • jordanxbrookes

            That is literally the truth. I’ve started creating polls to do with what the community actually want/like/dislike. Even if more people like things that I dislike, at least I know the community voted what they thought instead of giving a crap to the 1% and asking them instead. What I’m doing is giving a fuck for the Call of Duty community because this is a franchise that I love and I don’t want it to be ruined by corporate cunts that only listen to people that have thousands of subscribers and followers and turn them into corporate puppets just to promote their crap.

          • kplem

            yep

          • Confirminator

            “No chance CoD goes successfully through IW’s next cycle”. -CharlieIntel

            Keshav, you should make an article on this note and elaborate, maybe in the form of a question. I think you have a good point.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yes I complained that they asked once again an eSports player to make decisions for our Call of Duty games, but I’m not against a sniper-only playlist which you suggest I am. Yes the game is run and gun, but the game has so little flow to it. People are jumping around everywhere and spawning everywhere and it completely destroys the flow to maps. Terrace is a brilliant example of this. You have flags A and B, and the enemy have flag C, so by logic the enemy should be spawning at flag C, but in reality, 3 enemies are flying to the B flag and it just takes one enemy 2 seconds to go from C to A, and then within seconds the whole enemy team are spawning at A and are also capping B, and now your team are stuck at C until the same crap happens again and spawns flip after 10 seconds. It’s nothing but chaos and frustration. No map control or flow, just bad spawning and pixies flying everywhere. Another example is Recovery. The first part to the map is chaotic 90% of the time, but that second part of the map is the definition of chaos.

            Maybe if Sledgehammer fixed a few more things like SBMM and spawns, then maybe the game will be playable enough for me to at least spend an extra 10 minutes of playtime during my play sessions. Otherwise, I’m just praying for Treyarch’s title because if that sucks then I hate to say it, but there might never be a comeback to Call of Duty. As long as there is no future setting, no SBMM in public lobbies, no exo-suits and the game is extremely fun at the core, then I don’t see how Treyarch can go wrong. Oh yeah, they need to focus on their hit detection and connection issues too.

          • kplem

            IMO get it pre owned dont risk falling for it again

          • jordanxbrookes

            If I am stupid enough to pre-order I’ll be going for a normal copy, not getting another Hardened Edition, even if it is Treyarch, just to be cautious.

          • kplem

            remember treyarch with BO2 as well as they introduced MLG which is killing this game GET IT PRE OWNED or wait for reviews

          • jordanxbrookes

            I know, but at least Black Ops 2 had a fun aspect and got rid of SBMM within 2 weeks. I’ll wait until September because I’m going to Eurogamer next year so I’ll be playing the MP for myself, after that, then I will make the decision.

          • kplem

            good choice, but i still suggest you get it pre owned because i doubt they will show you the full game at eurogamer as well as you arnt playing with he public AND it is your first time playing it which means you will love it and get sucked it then buy ti and within a few days itll be another failure, suggest you get it pre owned with return warranty like i did and got GTA V. wait is eurogamer open to the public?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Yup, just like Gamescom is open.

          • kplem

            thats good, ill say it again BUY IT PRE OWNED!!!! dont be fooled by activision again!

          • kplem

            ass kisser to the max

        • Sal

          I love you.

      • Mario Rivera

        U simply just missed the valid point he made and went all kim jong un on his comment. recent cods rather reach out to ppl like nadeshot than poll the community aka the everyday ppl that make up 99.9% of the playerbase. AW is obviously made for 4v4 competitive as anything beyond that suffers from shitty spawns and overall flow (or lack thereof). Thats nice for pro players and all but the rest of us got the shaft!

    I KNEW THERE WOULD BE A SNIPING ONLY PLAYLIST COMING

  • XLKILLA

    Nobody cares game sucks. Every time I try and play I get “No matches found”. Nobody wants to play a playlist with set classes. It’s stupid

    • jooker-jr

      * I don’t
      * I don’t

    • jooker-jr

      Then don’t, it’s very very very simple, let me tell you how:

      When you boot up your console/PC, DONT click the AW icon. THATS IT !

      • XLKILLA

        You don’t have to tell me anything I haven’t clicked the AW icon in a while It’s garbage and not CoD. I’ll wait for BO3.

  • HenryDF

    So…this is basically double XP Hardcore with HUD, and preset classes featuring just one gun?

    How innovative.

  • Truth hurts

    If you play this you are supporting optic cumshot who will then be asked to make more gamemodes! It’s bad enough he gets paid to play games!

  • jooker-jr

    At MW2 days to ghosts :

    WE WANT SNIPER ONLY PLAYLIST.

    Now :

    NOBODY WANTS SNIPER ONLY PLAYLIST.

    Damn, it’s difficult to be a cod Dev.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I’m fine with a sniper-only playlist, but I’m not fine with Sledgehammer kissing competitive player’s arses and forgetting the public/casual players.

      • jooker-jr

        I know I’m gonna get hate for this but… That will make the game mode balanced.

        I don’t care if they asked one of the community or one of the pros, if it works then why complaining ?

        EDIT : And cod devs were asking pros to make the game since the debut of eSport in cod. ( probably )

        • jordanxbrookes

          Sledgehammmer? Making things balanced? They turned to the eSports community for balancing and look how that turned out: Bal of Duty: ASM1 Warfare. Yup, fantastic balancing there. Less weapons than other CoDs and still had more balancing issues than them.

          • jooker-jr

            They fixed the bal after the patch and the ASM1 is your typical strong SMG in cod. ( I personally don’t know why exactly the ASM1 but since everyone is saying SMG are underpowered, they gave you this. )

        • “I don’t care if they asked one of the community or one of the pros, if it works then why complaining ?”

          What if it didn’t work? This just shows how much they praise eSports players, they couldn’t have asked the ocmmunity, because everyone has different opinion and some of them are quite frankly terrible… But ask snipers. If you’re going to do something sniping related, then why would you ask a pro player who sometimes uses a sniper… Should have asked Pamaj or 9 Lives for example.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I may despise quickscoping and quickscopers, but Pamaj and 9Lives have my respect. It would’ve been a much better decision than asking NaDeSHoT.

          • kplem

            nah 9lives is a lying turd he said aim assist isnt required for QS lol what a lying dog.

          • Its not, you can turn pff aim assist and it’ll work still.

          • kplem

            it wont be as bullshit itll be WAY harder. IMO it should be BO1 pre patch you cant hit the target within like 1.5-2 seconds after aiming

          • Its not that hard to adapt to it, especially of you short drag in thw first place. Bo1 pre-patch is bullshit, they might as well of not had the class in the game to start with.

          • kplem

            at least you wont have everyone doing it only the very good ones will that have done it for long. no BO1 was balanced killed of that poison known as quick scoping.

          • jordanxbrookes

            It isn’t. Quickscoping is due to the mechanics of Call of Duty, Aim Assist just helps you line up your weapon at your enemies, but quickscoping is still possible without Aim Assist, just harder that’s all.

          • kplem

            i know but at least it aint bullpoo at least you have to practice and not get killed by little 12vies who just picked it up. as well as you would have a bigger advantage

      • spartanelite

        Hey did you like black ops 2?

        • ccrows

          I liked BO2, and I knew this comment was coming. (actually happened sooner than I thought)

          There is a need for balance from both sides…

          • spartanelite

            So you know what I meant that black ops 2 was made by the pros helping in making the game

          • ccrows

            Yup, and when one my favorite guns in that game was the PDW, (yeah I’m still a little pissed that it got nerfed 3 times) I should be bitter that Von listened to the Pros, but *meh* he did nerf SRs too once.

            *sigh* Whatever, you can’t make everybody happy.

            Anywhoo, I knew EXACTLY what you meant, and know it was coming. lol but yeah like I said above you can’t make everybody happy…

          • spartanelite

            Exactly with change there will always no matter what be someone who doesn’t like it,you just can’t make everyone happy :/

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          Black Ops 2 is a pile of dog shit

          • spartanelite

            And how exactly was that,if any Cod is a pile of dog shit its mw2

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It’s the most frustrating CoD I’ve ever played.

          • spartanelite

            Bo2 how it was honestly really easy and fun with basically minimal bull Shit but I have a felling you were probably on the other end

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It has the most bullshit, same with BO1, MW2, MW3, Ghosts, and AW.

          • spartanelite

            Most bullshit? Like what? the game with the most bullshit is mw2

        • jordanxbrookes

          I prefer Black Ops 2 than AW.

          • spartanelite

            Why if both were made by with the help of pro’s heavily involved in the making of them and do prefer ghost or advance warfare?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Because Black Ops 2 was fun at the core, AW isn’t.

          • spartanelite

            How is it not? I really don’t see it

      • Keshav Bhat

        What if SHGames never even mentioned OpTic NaDeSHoT at all? Then who would even care? Like, I don’t get it. They just asked him for assistance on making classes.

        • blind haters

          He’s just looking for excuses to hate. Obviously they’re not sucking up to exports by using a well known player to help create the class. A few months ago Jordan would have praised this saying “wow, they’re using real players to help make their game.” but it seems like Jordan has fallen for the cod cycle once again and is joining the hate train. What a hypocrite.

          • jordanxbrookes

            A] I already said I was a fool for believing the hype and B] They are not excuses, they are reasons, facts and opinions. I am sorry if you believe the crap Sledgehammer churned out is great.

        • jordanxbrookes

          Why ask him though? Why not ask actual quickscopers and snipers? I know Matt was a quickscoper in the past, but at least do it right.

          • Keshav Bhat

            Why are you guys so upset tho? All of your comments are aiming at SHGames just asking a player for assistance on classes. Like if they didn’t even mention him then what? These classes are magical then?

    • ?
      Most people approve this playlist

  • Mrpompom f’d your wife

    No one is ever happy with change but always bitch about wanting change. Finally a mode for sniper kids who always piss everyone off now can battle it out and all I see is bitching comments. That 1% that is eSports may have a hey say in things. But at least it’s changes not like a couple of cods where it seems like there just changing small amounts of the same old crap. Take chopper gunner as an example went from unlimited shooting and always being able to see everywhere now today over heats and takes twice as long to move and is gone right before you can do any type of damage. Guns no different, streaks, perks, everything else get a revive from its counter part but still works the same. Changes have been made because you bitch I have bitched too be happy with the piece of shit you always bitch about. It will not get better then before because before you were botching about the same shit too as today. So get the fuck over it its a money machine you bitch and buy at the end idc who you are and bitch about you’ll buy a camo cause your a moron and they will win. Just buying there game you lost they won. The end!

        Call of dutys new mentality= balance> fun. Look how crappy the scorestreaks have been last couple of games. Fun is not in their vocabulary anymore . If they could give everyone a 1 k/d they would and call it balanced

          they clearly dont know what the meaning of fun is anymore

  • Stefan Lang

    This is actually a BRILLIANT IDEA! Hopefully it separates all the annoying quickscopers in Momentum and put them in this playlist.

  • Optic dildoshow

    I’ve seen a few snipers with skill on AW, at least it ain’t like search and destroy lobbies on BO2, full of trickshotting idiots. I don’t think the snipers will stay in this playlist for long though, they will soon go back to annoying the shit out of people. Can’t stand that you can raise a sniper quicker than a SMG or even an AR

    ”This new mode was designed by the development team and with the help of OpTic NaDeSHoT”

    These people have ruined Call of Duty. eSports represents about 1% of the COD population yet they build parts of the game around it. I miss the days when Call of Duty was pure fun and entertaining.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Played MW2 for the last 4 days and every single time I got on it I was playing for 6+ hours straight. With AW, I can bare to only play about 5 matches before I get off.

      • kplem

        it is sad i as well too remember the great times of MW2! it had so much bullshit which made it balanced lol, that is what cod is about and gaming in general FUN! where did MLG lead HALO? to irrelevancy and to the ground, where is MLG taking cod? to the fucking ground.

        • jordanxbrookes

          MW2 has so much BS, but it’s the BS that kinda makes the game fun and enjoyable.

      • J4MES

        Same! I re-installed MW2 on PC as my 360 is back in the box but loved every minute of it. It brought back a load of amazing memories and was just incredible fun match after match. I still can play for hours on end and not get bored. I really thought I was burnt out on COD as a whole after AW but I could happily play MW2 for the next few months no end. I may even buy Black Ops on PC as people are flooding back to that. Hell, I may even get my 360 back out of the box lol!

        • jordanxbrookes

      • Michael

        Same here. I’ve been playing bo2, mw2 and mw3 lately and it’s so much more fun than tryhard warfare. Nostalgia is the way to go nowadays. Playing your favorite nostalgic game is super fun. I’m only 3rd prestige on AW and I haven’t touched the game in 3 weeks. I’m glad I stood away from it cause I don’t need that stress in my life.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        • jordanxbrookes

          Well I’ve certainly learned my lesson. Also, is it just me or is CoD eSports boring to watch now? I’ve only seen one match and it just doesn’t seem exciting like it was with Black Ops 2 or Ghosts.

          • MichiganerE

            Since when was Ghosts exciting to watch?

          • jordanxbrookes

            I find Ghosts competitive more exciting than AW competitive. It’s only one’s opinion.

      • Aldo

        Agree with you 100%. I did the same at the start of December as I was so frustrated with AW that I was close to throwing my controller through my TV after only a few games. As soon as went back to MW2 and MW3 I remembered how much fun CoD used to be and ended up playing for hours and having to drag myself away to get some sleep!

        I know it will never happen but my dream is for IW’s next release to be an amalgamation of all the Modern Warfare’s minus the bs. To play that on next gen would just be incredible!

    • Primey_

      AW is fun and entertaining. eSports doesn’t ruin games it improves them.

      • smayo

        It improves the game for the 1-5% MLG minority, for the other 95% of the players it just becomes a boring experience.

        • Primey_

          How is it boring? SHG made sure to include the crap people find fun to use and the evidence for that is the amount of crap MLG bans. Every single call of duty game which has been played competitively has had stuff which public players enjoy.

          If SHG consulted with MLG when putting stuff in then you can say it’s tailed to competitive play only but they didn’t. AW was built for the minority

          • Michael

            AW is literally a snooze fest. You must be playing a different game then I am.

        eSports only ruins games if the game originally wasn’t made for eSports. Games like DOTA 2 and LoL are for eSports, Call of Duty wasn’t.

  • Juses

    OMG they listend. Thank juses.

  • Slothigans

    Anybody hating on this playlist can have their opinions I could care less. But STOP acting like you’re being forced to play!!!! It’s not like they took down every playlist except one shot. Geez this is the first time in a while that snipers were put in favor of other players. This is optional stuff. Not mandatory so please stop acting like this game is “ruined”. Cause it’s not perfect, but it’s a damn good fuckin game.

    • jordanxbrookes

      We’re not hating on the playlist though, we’re hating on Sledgehammer for sucking up to the eSports community instead of doing the right thing.

      • Slothigans

        Ok that’s fine. But this is the first time snipers can play something that caters to them. Most if not everything has ALWAYS been about other things. Tell me I’m wrong. The game hasn’t even been out for two months and people are complaining about every single thing. Just give it time. I’m not saying this to you but to others that are like this. Cause it fucking seems like EVERY damn post in this site is filled with more hate than love. It’s pretty damn pathetic.

        • drjakeyoung

          But 2 months ago, people were saying “it’s only been a week, give it time”. I suppose in another 6 months, people will be saying “it’s only been 8 months, give it some more time”

          • J4MES

            Agree. COD games only have a 1 year cycle so if the game isn’t satisfactory in the first month; it’s not going to keep people engaged or interested in the long run. The fact it’s 2015 next week and still many issues persist; it’s not very encouraging to say the least.

          • drjakeyoung

            Exactly. If it were like GTA, and only once or twice a generation, then understandable, but only between 10-12 months starting November, then that vast majority of B should be cleared up.

    • J4MES

      It’s not the playlist that’s the problem; it’s the way the developers are dick-riding eSports and ignoring the much wider and larger community.

  • drjakeyoung

    I can’t even play, PSN is still down for some reason. I would have expected them to have brought it back online by now. Also Jordanxbrookes, what did you say in the deleted comment?

    • jordanxbrookes

      I replied to someone with what I said. Scroll down and you should see it.

  • awkenney

    I see this coming back to the “let’s just make it FUN” argument. In multiplayer COD, what was fun? What is fun? What do we want fun to be? If you take all of the competitive aspects out of the game, would it be fun? If you make it so that a player of any skill level can drop a triple-kill at any random moment, is that fun?
    It boils down to this for me: some of us thought that COD4 was the height of the series, others thought that MW2 was the height of the series. I’m in the boat that felt that COD took a wrong turn at MW2, and that probably makes me favor the COD4 design. MW2 introduced too many concepts strictly to draw a larger audience that the game didn’t need. And the game continues these concepts for the last 6 iterations of the game. This probably makes me favor the competition = fun argument. Otherwise I think the argument is accessibility = fun. The problem with accessibility is that the game becomes nearly impossible to master. If you all want to see a game where knowledge and skill are completely ineffective, then I’m clearly playing the wrong game.

    • kplem

      MW2 the most uncompetitive game yet still the most loved and played. we dont really care about the competitive part it is the heavy ASS kissing of MLG, building the game for the ground up off MLG, building and caring ONLY for the 1% of douche bags and not giving a shit about the 99% who pay the bills.

      • spartanelite

        Mw2 had MLG,that being said I think it was the worst Cod ever made

        • kplem

          i dont know about that but if it did it sure as hell was irrelevant and wasnt interfering with the public. i know hutch seananners etc did competitive but i dont know if it was MLG who cares! you are on drugs if you think that

          • spartanelite

            If I think there was MLG or mw2 is a piece of shit because both are true

          • kplem

            yeah ok whatever you say lol

          • spartanelite

            Do you really want my reason because its fucking true and if you don’t see that then your in denial

          • kplem

            yeah sure you are the delusional one. lol

          • spartanelite

            All right it’s shit because its over rated to shit,its gets more credit than its worth,it was a shit negeleted game, the ump was the best gun in the game could 3shot someone across the map with an SMG,the kill streaks basically made it unplayable because the spawns were so fucked the game wouldn’t make an effort to move you,a 6-7 kill streak basically ended the game,the nuke was shit because you could be getting destroyed and then win because you got kills in a chopper, OMA danger close nube tube’s made the game unplayable, people just sit in a corner of the map and shoot at the sky and get a six man for what for shooting up and they get reward for it by being abel to end the game and get cheap kills by cheap methods, the was shot guns as secondarys and they had ridiculous one shot range like the model the one gun they ever patched,they had stopping power but not a counter it made the scar a 2 hit kill full auto,blast shield which is meant to counter danger close doesn’t do shit andthe spaws are shit

          • kplem

            1. get a stinger with cold blooded you are over exaggerating with the spawns. 2. the 7 killstreaks ending the game myth is not as easy as you think as well as now everyone runs stingers. 3 OMA danger close over quick scopers any day, as well use your brain out smart them like i always did with the UMP. 4. only shit gun in the game was the F2000. 5. in conclusion that game was fun and played it for hours so did the whole community it is the best by far and the funnest.

          • spartanelite

            Can’t shot down a harrier with a stinger if you keep spawning in the same place and I was going to put the quick scooper thing but I didn’t know if I would matter but obviously it did because there were a fuck ton of those ass holes running around with a shit sniper the shit ass intervention, and yes the myth is true a fucking harrier ends the game and explain how come OMA noobe tubing in a corner tell me why those people get rewards for having no skill,and how they never did anything about it,why shotguns were secondarys explain why this game is such shit give me a reason to go buy this piece of shit right now

          • kplem

            it is fun that is the bottom line, MW2 shouldnt be taken so seriously that what i did which made it even more fun. like i said you are over exaggerating over the spawns and the harrier ending the game GET a stinger with cold blooded, these days killstreaks on MW2 last 2 seconds because everyone has a stinger. conclusion MW2 was so unbalanced it was balanced as well as it was FUN and ADDICTIVE

          • spartanelite

            That make no sense, but best was Cod Black ops

          • kplem

            black ops was good but got boring fun>balance

          • spartanelite

            Balance is fun, its not fun seeing the same thing over and over and black ops was the best of both IMO

      • jordanxbrookes

        MW2 had MLG and GBs and it still worked great, even when the game was made for the public players.

        • kplem

          that’s is my point i just cant stand how they build it for MLG only

    • J4MES

      COD was never and should never have been considered a competitive game especially taking into account that the target market (25m) is built much of casual players. The series has already lost about 8m players a year since MW3 after the games gradually took an MLG-oriented turn and is now approaching a full-blown eSports brand.

  • J4MES

    It’s funny how influential eSports has been with Call of Duty with the devs sucking up to the minority community of competitive players but 99% of them including Nadeshot would NEVER consider playing a PROPER competitive game like Counterstrike Global Offensive or DOTA2 because they wouldn’t be able to handle it. Why the hell developers are taking ideas and building games around their wishes is beyond me. It’s ruining it for everyone (the majority) else.

  • Rav

    you guys ask for something, SHG does it, some are happy, and some arent
    the ppl who arent happy go and say about 50 stupid comments raging about the new edition

    for ex: “we want zombies”
    SHG: adds zombies
    community: THIS IS BS LETS WAIT TILL TREYARCH THEYLL MESS UP ZOMBIES

    “Bal op and EM1 sucks”
    SHG: buffs up em1, nerfs bal
    community: are you kidding me? now its like a lazer show (and i dont see more ppl using lazers than snipers tbh)

    “Can we have a gamemode with like only snipers? like how they did it in modern warfare?”
    SHG: adds new gamemode
    community: ARE YOU KIDDING ME WHATS THE POINT OF ADDING A ONE GUN ONLY GAMEMODE. SHG SUCKS

    and i can add quite a bit more examples

    them adding a new gamemode doesnt force you to play it, but it allows ppl who want to play something like that to enjoy it. if you dont like it fine, stick to the old ones, and if you didnt like the old ones, then go back to the other cods, or just quit! theres no point taking it out on the community -.-

    haters spend too much time hating….

    and if you think that sledgehammer is kissing up to esports do you honestly think that esports will use this gamemode in their competition?? just because they used a good call of duty player doesnt mean that theyre kissing up to esports…
    personally i think they made this for the fans, because i have played it, and it is rly enjoyable, tbh

    • spartanelite

      Pretty much sums it up :/

    • Guywithbrains

      Exactly. It is a result of a free rising of one’s children.

    • Rodoe528

      Most of them are they annoying treyarch fanboys

      • Guywithbrains

        Well I have to agree Treyarch fanboys think Treyarch is a God who doesn’t make any mistakes. Everything they do is perfect.

        But I won’t start arguing. Others can like Treyarch if they want to. Just if they would stop praising Treyarch so much…

        • Rodoe528

          I think all devs have flaws my favs are SHG and treyarch but I don’t worship them

        • Rav

          o.o awww thanks 🙂 and lol i think treyarch is good but i personally dont mind SHG switching things up(:

        • Well until Treyarch makes an awful game again, they deserve the praise. One of the COD developers havent made a good game in a while.

        • Ak74u

          All hale the vahnderhar and kiss his bald shiney head lol jk

        • aceboy

          3arc had a big boosting problem kids would boost to get diamond camo and nuclears. Then they would show off the stuff they boosted for online put up horrible matches with diamomd snipers and pistols and all that. That’s the reason I’m a booster buster I mean is it worth getting banned over camos and calling cards.

    • Haitian Jack

      I do like Treyarch Zombies better than what theyve put out, but its 2 different games. Its like comparing COD and NBA Live. 2 completely different games based on preferences. But I do agree that the majority of the community has been very bitchy as of late (the past 3 or so years)

    • RebornAngel666

      Ok, they listen huh? Why not all the outrage about SBMM? Have they said anything about it? Or even addressed it? I have troubles finding a game late at night all the time. Why make a game where I can’t even find a server anymore and I have to only find one with people in my skill level? That’s stupid. I just want to play. Fuck them.

    • Thank you sir for addressing this issue. Why can’t everyone just be more understanding? #STOPTHEHATERS2015

    • Deedle

      People have become so bratty, and it’s gotten out of hand. We gotta start calling people on their bullshit.

    • You’re acting like the community is one person. Obviously when one group gets what they want opposing groups complain. The basis of any community.

      It’s called brain damage. It’s no secret that cod houses a lot of people that shouldn’t be playing video games to begin with

    “Hardscope”?

    Seriously guys? You named it HARDSCOPE!?

    • Funny how none of them are titled “Quickscope”. I guess AW is supposed to be a game of hardscoping according to SH. :

  • Whats with all this hate tho,damn there was so much love now this

  • tactikz4

    Probably the most fun game mode right now. Condrey said its a permanent playlist which is pretty cool. If you love sniping this mode will make you love this game more.

          “You just said the keyword, I as in you.”

    • ccrows

      Except that COD4/MW2 were created for more of a mainstream audience.

      Titanfall & even AW was a turn off for a lot of people when both games strayed away from COD4/MW2.

      If it’s done right, IW would hit a HUGE Homerun by remking a “COD4/MW2/MW3 collection” on current Gen and clean up some stuff like OMA/DC & SRP/PP…

      • Titanfall is the new cod

        Activision fucked up when they sacked 95% of iw. I can see what you mean future style games can come across shit but titanfall is so good

        • ccrows

          BOTH sides were wrong with that situation.

          ^ I know that “OLD IW” fans want to just point the finger at Activision, but BOTH sides were wrong…

  • FraMarte

    Don’t be silly friends, we have always been asking for a 100% snipers playlist
    (I’m not saying everyone wanted it, but the Community, in general, wanted a place to quickscope/noobscope/tricknoob if they liked sniping this way, and for people who don’t like noob-snipers, a place for them to definitely go away from traditional playlists; am I wrong?) so they gave us;
    – we have asked for infected: they gave us;
    – we wanted zombies in future we’ll get it (if we pay something else other to the price of the game… but Money is their BFF is I see……)
    – we wanted 15 prestiges, and now we’ve got them (go to the survey CharlieIntel proposed us this summer)

    The fact is SHG Is listening us step by step, we (I REPEAT: WE, AS A COMMUNITY) can’t say “THEY ARE JUST LISTENING eSports PLAYERS” because they are mixing their opinions (if they didn’t exist, no montages, no COD videos on youtube, and COD wouldn’t have been important like now) with “Normal players”.

    I know SHG is the one who really want to listen us because is suppose to say that they want to be “Big” to community eyes, and at least to my eyes with those surprises they are a little Big (THEY ARE THE FIRST SINCE WHEN I BEGAN BEING INTERESTED IN COD THAT WANT TO BE BIG, NOT —ONLY— IN TERMS OF MONEY). So it’s ok to have arguments with AW because they want it to happen to improve their game (feedback is being their weapon, for this year, and I like this), but it’s not fair to say that we didn’t want what we got nor they are only listening the 1% of “MLG masters” not caring about us, and in fact, what you think, who will play in this playlist has to be considered an “Expert” or a “Noob”??? (tip: I love this gamemode as a noob hahahah)

    This was my think, but I just said the reality.
    But, now, because you love feedback, listen this, dear SHG:
    Gun Game, with all weapon variants and styles (I’m talking about Enlisted, Professional and Elite), wouldn’t it be funny??? In BO2 and Ghosts it was the greatest fun IMHO, and I played that more than everything else.

  • spartanelite

    This is not what u expected to see in the comments, I thought people would actually like this how could you even bitch at this actually?

  • nammion

    I’ll try this mode out. Probably might be the only thing I like about this game

  • THEAVENGER2015 .

    this game will die off by early 2015,MLG will be the reason call of duty dies forever,truth hurts,they dont listen to the communty just the pro players ,RIP call of duty.

    • Michael

      The games already dead. Been dead since the first 2 weeks of release.

      • BRUHHHHH

        how has it idiot just cause you don’t like it doesn’t mean that it died. This game definitely the biggest longevity out of the last few call of duty’s. In the end your a depressed faggot, good night 🙂

        • smayo

          There are more people playing BO2 now then their are people playing AW and Ghosts combined, and you say this game has longevity….. hahaha

        • Michael

          I hope you were just trolling in that comment. Because you must be living under a rock. AW is fucking dead and you know it. Plus, every haters excuse is “oh maybe it’s because you suck at the game.” You must be blind as fuck my friend. You dumbass.

  • Michael

    After playing bo2, mw2, and mw3 lately, I have to say those 3 games put AW to shame. AW is the sweatiest game I think I ever played. I haven’t touched AW in 3 weeks and I’m glad I’m staying away from it because I don’t need that stress in my life. Like 402thunder402 said, you feel like your always swimming in sweat from all these gamma lab tryhards.

    • Super029something

      mw3 is the 2nd worst cod of all time

  • Not to ignore Jordans complaint about his comment getting deleted, but this game mode was really fun in the few matches I played of it. I dont usually snipe at all in COD but I enjoyed this mode.

  • Psychomaggot105

    I was wondering why one of previous posts got deleted. I said something like ” we the gamers don’t want to have sbmm to mimic mlg” . It was more in depths then that though. I haven’t played AW since mid November I believe and not one day have I even thought of putting it in my Xbox. I don’t think any mp player would choose sbmm over good connections. So why is it still there? If sbmm is going to compromise good connections you don’t put it in the game.

    • MichiganerE

      “Pro Players know this game better than anybody” Not if you haven’t been playing CoD before CoD 4.

      • Super029something

        Most of them have been playing before Cod 4.

        • MichiganerE

          Name one.

          • Super029something

            Nadeshot, Scump & Aches are the only ones I know of. IDK about the others because I don’t follow them on social media but I think its a pretty safe assumption.

          • J4MES

            Wrong on all counts. Just because they have played the games doesn’t mean they were around when the games were first out and supported the products. Sounds like your just a Nadeshot fanboy trying to justify his pitiful input on a failure of a game.

          • Super029something

            I was obviously correct on all counts since you only bothered too give 1 argument and that argument is incorrect anyway.

            And yes they were around when the game first came out and even buying it after is still supporting it and the CoD franchise.

          • PCMR

            WTF are you on about? Everybody knows Nadeshot only started playing CoD back in 2009 and I still don’t think he’s even played World at War. He even thought MW2 was the ‘first’ one of the series which proves how stupid he is. You’re just as esport apologist and fanboy of these morons and the fact the franchise has lost nearly 10m players since esports made the games tailored to them just shows how damaging their input in the games has been.

          • Super029something

            You’re a complete idiot if you think small implementations based off of e-sports in pubs is the reason they lost 10million players. You’re also an idiot if this bothers you enough to make you quit.

            And you, PCMR, are just a straight up run-of-the-mill retard!

          • J4MES

            Stop crying kid. It’s pretty pathetic and childish that you resort to insults when you’ve been proven wrong. Many people don’t play COD these days due to the game design and structure and the competitive nature. This is common knowledge and has been even admitted by the developers themselves ‘taking a risk’. You can’t defend things that have come out of the horses mouth. Clearly Activision, the devs and Beachhead value eSports money more than the community support and finance.

          • Super029something

            Not once did you prove my wrong even though I have asked for your rebuttal twice (you clearly don’t have one).

            People just blame e-Sports because they don’t like CoD anymore. I have been playing CoD competitively since Black Ops 1 and have enjoyed CoD up until Cod: Ghosts. I didn’t enjoy Ghosts and I didn’t enjoy the game that everybody calls ‘CATERED TO ESPORTS’ (Advanced warfare) when really all it is is fucking SBMM that no competitive player gives a fuck about.

            Suck my rock hard cock you ignorant, whiny, bitchy prick.

          • J4MES

            Stop crying kid. Black Ops 1 had NO competitive aspect so you’re lying once again. Your first COD was probably Black Ops 2. If you’re going to pretend to give it large; at least make it seem remotely believable LOL!

          • Super029something

            So because BO1 didn’t have a Ranked mode, nobody played it competitively? Me and my friends use to do GB’s, we were shit and lost almost every match but we still done them.

            And, oh, look! J4MES still can’t think of a rebuttal for my arguments. How about in the next comment before you call me a liar, give your rebuttal, yea? Let me guess you’ll use the same BS excuse everyone else uses; “no its waste of my time!!!!!!!!!! 🙁 🙁 🙁 “

          • MichiganerE

            They probably only played the MP and nothing else.

    • J4MES

      Most ‘pro’ players thought MW2 was the first ever Call of Duty game. Some of them were in nappies/diapers when COD 1 was released. Hardly any were playing COD 4 and they have absolutely no right to dictate the direction of the franchise because they play competitively. I’ve seen some of the best COD players in the world on the likes of PC who don’t rely on aim assist to make themselves look good. Just because they can’t be bothered to join in with the hipster bandwagon of eSports; doesn’t mean their contribution is anything less. The core community has made this franchise and supported it over the years. The eSports mob get the game for free and it’s only because the likes of SHG are clueless; they have to turn to idiots like that instead of the wider, more experienced community.

        Are you serious? You seem too know little to nothing about competitive and its players…

        • A good majority of the pro players started playing in CoD 4.

        • And I highly doubt that you have seen ‘The best players in the world’ on PC. If so those players are fucking idiots because if they’re dedicating that much time too a game on PC when they could be earning a fair bit of money if they played on Xbox. Ya’ know, since they’re some of the best players in the world!!

        • Wider community, yes. More experienced community? Hell fucking no. If anybody is putting as much time into CoD as Pro Players just for fun and not for money, than they’re either a autistic child with Asperger’s or a 40yr old basement dweller.

          ”fucking idiots because if they’re dedicating that much time too a game on PC when they could be earning a fair bit of money if they played on Xbox” That’s exactly the problem – most people play games like COD for FUN and not competitively or for money. Thanks for inadvertently proving my point there. Most people also have busy lives and they don’t have time on their hands to play COD 10-15 hours a day unlike many ‘pro’ players. You also still haven’t provided evidance of 1 pro player who was playing COD pre-MW2 – we’re not talking about kids like Nadeshot who started in MW2 and then went to COD 4 for a few games.

          ”If anybody is putting as much time into CoD as Pro Players just for fun and not for money, than they’re either a autistic child with Asperger’s or a 40yr old basement dweller” EXACTLY – a minority of players play COD ‘professionally’ so why should the games be designed around their wishes? Thanks for proving yet another point for me. Also the fact that none of these COD kiddies have touched real games like CSGO and DOTA just show how pathetic they are. They’re too scared to even play without aim assist LMAO

    It wasn’t just OpTic NaDeSHoT that they asked for help, it was also TmarTn and other Youtuber’s. So do not be hating on Matt he’s the 2nd best person on COD besides Seth, plus he has given people some really good advice on how to be a better player on COD. I mean maybe they did ask the community for this one thing but at least they asked famous Youtuber’s for help because half of the time they do whatever they want, but Sledgehammer Games has been better than other companies by asking others for advice and your opinions.

  • JacobtheSlayer

    God this community is toxic!!! I honestly have nothing wrong with what sledgehammer is doing. Also to all of you people complaining about SBMM is just goes to tell you how you all reliegh on the noobs to make your self look good. You know I understand where you guys are coming at aswell but seriously with the SBMM I feel more accomplished with the KD and everything else that I have done.

    • smayo

      I dont complain about SBMM is in the game, i complain about the lack of FUN in the game, and many with me

    • meow

      CoD is all about bragging rights, doesnt matter that you got that 5KD from spawnkilling AFK’s, its that you can tell people you have a 5KD.

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    I’m skipping around on this game more than Lindsay Lohan going through withdrawals

  • 2mannyjointz

  • tweeateer birdie

    all they have to do is remove sbmm for these people who still have the game i dont have it enymore iknow zombies will suck …i soled the game for 20$ because thats what its worth

  • xlExquisite

    I love how you guys Bitch and Complain all the time about something.

    Optic Nadeshot was asked about this due to his sniping abilities not because of his Esports status.

    Sounds like a few of you are butt hurt he was picked to help and not you.

    • J4MES

      ”Sniping Abilities” – don’t you mean aim assisted handicapped combat?

      If you actually READ the posts clearly; you’d realise that people are more peeved about the design of AW in relation to eSports rather than this playlist itself. Seeing that 99% of COD is a casual audience looking for fun; why should we have to abide by eSports structure and design? It’s just killed the fun in the game. Perhaps if SHG listened to the community in the first place who have been there since the COD 4 mainstream days instead of eSports kids who joined MW2 at xmas 2009; we might have an enjoyable and entertaining game.

      So yeah, the playlist isn’t the problem but Sledgehammer’s persistence on relying on people like Nadeshot for ideas and ignoring the majority community. The franchise has lost over 8m players since eSports was introduced as a platform in COD but it seems the developers would rather satisfy the competitive needs of a minority as opposed to giving the vast majority a fun game that doesn’t get boring fast.

      • xlExquisite

        I highly doubt 8 million people were like, “Oh Esports is here, I’m never playing again” Most gamers don’t even know about Esports and could careless.

        • smayo

          No 8 million people noticed the series wasn’t as fun as it used before and said F*** it, I’m not playing this boring crap anymore, and more and more players are turning there back on this once great series all thanks to the illogical road activision and the development teams are taking CoD.

        • J4MES

          MW3 was when the developers started tailoring design elements to eSports wishes e.g shrunken maps and that’s what turned people off. It’s the structure and not the brand that put people off which is all down to the eSport mentality of game design.

          (upvoted your own comment too LOL!)

  • Fathead661

    Hopefully all the douchebags who think they’re MLG players just because they can quick scope stay EXCLUSIVELY in this playlist. And I’m also glad to know that Sledgehammer lied to us about there NOT being quick scoping in AW from before release, so much so that they even added a playlist exclusively for it!!! Lol. I like AW but Dev’s make it too easy to for people to hate their game and stay away.
