    Why play Ranked when you’re pratically doing it in pubs already. Damn you SBMM.

    • jooker-jr

      The effect is probably higher in the ranked playlist

      • common sense

        It’s actually not. Ranked is easier than pubs.

        • Mr Doge

          It actually is. Use your name idiot

        • Siftblade of Rivia

          Nope. I do way worse in ranked than I do in pubs. Ranked is all clans and parties. At least pubs has a little less of those now. That’s why I liked the one shot playlist. Even though I don’t snipe, all the QSers went there and made my pub games much more enjoyable.

    • Slothigans

      If you’ve played ranked and standard it’s not really the same.

    • ScOott

      Surely it should be the other way round why play pubs … Rank also has SBMM but with better rewards

    • common sense

      They aren’t going to remove SBMM. I’m now convinced it is purely because the COD creators want people to HATE competitive. So they don’t have to ‘put’ as much effort it into going into the next couple of games. Because any SANE person would had removed it completely for pubs and kept it solely for ranked play. I played 3 games of ranked today and got insta-killed everytime because of lag, I actually was the best on my team, just annoying. Went to pubs same story top of my leaderboard but lagged like crazy. No reason for all this. Why is drift0r’s video on this removed? Oh yeah, because Condrey forced him not to show it. Scumbag. All of them.

      • Stefan Lang

        I really wasn’t the type to go on Twitter and bash SHG but they should have known better. Treyarch learned from it. I havent been more frustrated with a CoD more than AW. Ghosts had its flaws but all you needed was a team and you’d enjoy as on AW I rarely play in parties and every game I go into 9 times outta 10 its started and my team is getting shit on. I have a friend she got on last night and we played a few games and I had her host. She has a .40 kd and a lvl 50 I swear I was having some of the most fun I ever had playing AW. I mean it does suck for the other team to get shit on but thats how people learn to get better. Id rather have mixed lobbies than an entire lobby of sweaty kids. Every public game. Shouldnt feel like an MLG match. Its intense every once in a while but when its every game its a big problem.

        • jordanxbrookes

          It went from Curse of the Green Triangles, to Curse of the Gamma Lab Kids. Much rather be cursed by the green triangles.

      • Mr Doge

        Just play a different game. People on this website are already getting sick of this SBMM nonsense. Stop carrying the trend on. I haven’t seen JordanxBrookes post on this topic in a while so that means even he is getting tired of arguing about it. No one cares that you hate it.

        • Psychomaggot105

          Yeah your right. Everybody needs to just go back to any previous for their cod fix. It sucks nothing is being done about it. The next time I’ll play aw is when the dlc is released. Just for zombies. For some reason I feel like that’ll be a disappointment. I’m not even excited for it.

          • smayo

            Then dont buy it, the only way for activision and the CoD development teams to realize there game isn’t good enough anymore is when people stop buying it and its DLC/MT, it’s a win/win for all of us, we get to keep our money in our pockets and they (hopefully) develop a better game.

          • Psychomaggot105

            I already have the season pass from my collectors edition.

          • smayo

            Bummer, but if you already paid for it then yeah i would DL the DLC as well, luckily i learned a few years ago not to get tricked into buying those collectors editions anymore

        • ccrows

          *Pfffft* You just don’t get it. It’s not just this website.

          It’s also Gamefaqs, Twitter, Youtube, and the COD forums.

          ^ When you finally take that blindfold off, you’ll see.

          I had multiple lobbies today where I played people in Europe, when I live in the US. GG SH! πŸ™

          Condrey even himself said in his 2nd tweet that he’s (I’m paraphrasing now) happy that more people have a 1.0 KD. (even if that mean screwing with the connection)

          Anywhoo… Most of us (myself included) are just gonna play this until Trey 2015 comes out, which I highly doubt *KNOCK ON WOOD* that Treyarch will F*** up twice with SBMM… <_<

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            We can blame competitive for not only SBMM, but the overpowered BAL, too, lol.

          • ccrows

            Honestly though, and I know that I’m gonna catch S*** for this, but I’m OK with where the BAL currently is.

            I mean the only issue that I had with it at launch was that it shot like a laser.

            & While many people don’t see the recoil nerf, I see it.

            ^ There’s long shots that I used to hit with it 24/7/365 at launch, that just don’t happen anymore for me (and it should not happen anymore too).

            IMO if you nerf the BAL any more, it will be kinda like BO2 when Trey “Over-nerfed” the PDW. Like I said, I know that the BAL is still a hot issue, but I’m honestly good with where it is right now… *Shrugs*

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            About SBMM, it’s like playing against The Crew’s AI: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80qTx1AKyUQ completely unfair and unbalanced.

            About the BAL, it’s still an effective weapon that dominates the others. Its fire rate is very high, and for its range, that makes it annihilate the opponents. It’s still overpowered (maybe if it were put in Ghosts, it would’t be as good), because it’s an above-average weapon against a variety of weak weapons. The BAL is like using a KF5, but with better range. Plus, it has great hipfire, and stick a Foregrip on it, and you’re unstoppable.

          • I agree, the recoil kicks up and down and isn’t like the lazer recoil of the HBR and Ak-12 and you can’t even burst fire to control it and the Foregrip does near nothing to fix it. It’s not even op in the first place, it’s just whiny kids who suck at the game.

          • Typical Cod cycle

            And here we have here is your typical cod fan following the typical cod cycle. Little do these cod fans know that they themselves are killing the cod franchise with their childish attitudes. Either that or they’re just in denial of the fact that they’re the problem.

          • smayo

            There is no typical CoD cycle anymore, Ghosts eliminated that effectively

          • I still shudder at the thought of ghosts..

        • TheMarkofRay

          SBMM needs to go but I tend to agree with your stance more. I mean yeah it has more negatives than positive but in reality it’s amazing guys are still finding ways to rationalize simply not wanting to play players as good as them or better so they can play guys they are way better than. Also it presumes all of them are some beast player anyway. Guys 1.2 kdr and less complaining about SBMM. It sucks yes but why keep looking weak by saying, “I don’t wanna play good people, this isn’t what COD is about.”

          • common sense

            Has absolutely NOTHING to do with that. If I wanted to play against players with my own skill I would go to RANKED, where that HAPPENS. Not only that pubs are now DEAD because of the crappy CONNECTION, I repeat CONNECTION. Please stop being ignorant and stand with the people and post on every Charlie Intel article that SBMM needs to go away otherwise they will NEVER fix it.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          “Just play a different game”, yeah, sure support developers that toss their fanbase into the ground (in which they paid for the game). All that is, is an excuse.

          • Mr Doge

            How is that an excuse? Im being serious. PLAY A DIFFERENT FUCKING GAME. Speak English amigo? Yeah then read the fucking sentence. Activision doesn’t have their hand 10 inches deep in your ass and make you their puppet so they can force you to play CoD. Heres an idea genius, stop being a little bitch.

          • ccrows

            For many people though that’s not an option since their friends still play a ton of COD. (and well when you have 2 choices to go with on current gen, and with Ghosts low pop it’s really just one choice)

            Saying to just play another game isn’t as realistic when friends are involved…

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            “excuse:

            attempt to lessen the blame attaching to (a fault or offense); seek to defend or justify.
            or
            a reason or explanation put forward to defend or justify a fault or offense.
            or
            a poor or inadequate example of.”

            You’re justifying something that shouldn’t be justified at all, like SBMM. “This game has obvious problems. I’m going to dodge that point and tell you to ignore it for no reason”is what you’re saying. So I have no right to complain, even though I paid my money for it? Brilliant logic, mind blow. Tell me, is this fair (The Crew AI): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=80qTx1AKyUQ ? Even though that game has its fair share of problems, you’re going to tell me to go play some other racing game. Well, what if I enjoyed The Crew and wanted it to be good? What if I want to play it all the time, but I’m forced not to? A game with so much potential? Replace that with Advanced Warfare, with a small variety of weapons; a completely unbalanced game with huge amounts of potential, with merely a few key problems holding it back. You’re saying that I should “play a different fucking game”, even though I want to play Advanced Warfare because it’s an addicting game? Funny how that is, is because the SBMM forces us to completely focus on the game, a game that is supposed to be casual, mind you. It’s impossible to focus on a game for a certain time, because it becomes strenuous, therefore, causes boredom. Eliminate SBMM, and it will remove these problems. Then, there are issues such as spawns. Camping is an issue, but how can that be removed?

            “Stop being a little bitch”? Are you really that elementary? “Bitches” justify something that causes ruin. Grow up.

      • UpRiftCOD

        Well they successfully lost a costomer, won’t be buying a cod game for a while. I think it’s great they tried something new, but the multiplayer in general is shit. I hate to be one of “those” guys, but im truly speaking from experience. My whole 18 hours of hell.

      • Huh?

        What did SHG get drift0r to remove? Explain!?

        • common sense

          Drift0r made a video showing the actual coding for SBMM and it had the word skill in the coding even. I bet you anything Condrey and the likes FORCED drift0r to take it down because it showed how bull*(&% their system is. I’ve tried to find it but no one seemed to have saved it. Just sucks cod is doing this.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Drift0r took it down because he knew that what he said was stupid.

          • common sense

            wrong, he was forced to take it down.

          • ccrows

            (not being sarcastic) Did he talk about that incident in a later video?

            IIRC even TMar made of a vid about SBMM and talked about how it was ruining the gameplay experience. Don’t know if that was taken down too, since I’m not a subscriber, and quite frankly don’t follow TMar that often…

          • common sense

            It showed the coding of the game(driftors vid) and I’m almost positive condrey made him take it down because of that reason(although we all know the real reason for him wanting it gone). TmarTn better be careful with SBMM because Condrey is extremely furious of the cat being let out of the bag with it. Why we can’t check leaderboards, can’t see each other stats. No lobby leaderboard. Ping bars that LIE. Player count not there. It’s absolute atrocious they can get away with all that.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Did he tweet about that? Or are you speculating?

      • You’ll just keep crying anyway

        Even if they get rid of SBMM (which i hope they dont just to shut you entitled pricks up), you’ll find sonething else to give devs shit about, like you fucks ALWAYS do every year. There’s a reason why the gaming community as a whole labeled the cod community the absolute worst in terms of being toxic. I don’t know how Condrey does it. How is he able to keep saying cod fans are the best fans when it has pricks like you and jordanxbrookes constantly giving him shit?

        • common sense

          You do realize without us whining and complaining you would still have last stand, deathstreaks. one man army noobtubes, commando, and who knows what else? no? Of course not. You have no idea what you are talking about is why.

          • You’ll just keep crying

            Oh those features from MW2? You know, the cod that you fans labeled as one of the best cods EVER? Yeah, stay inconsistent. That seems to be the one thing you guys are good at besides being douche bags.

        • I dunno, Minecraft and FNAF could take that title for worst fanbase, Cod is pretty tame when it comes to the kids in those fanbases.

    • iTYPE2ANNOY

      cry more please

      • Stefan Lang

        It damn sure isn’t crying.

        • iTYPE2ANNOY

          Keep telling yourself that, it won’t change the fact that you’re whining like a baby.

          • Stefan Lang

            No. Whining would be along the lines of “OMG SBMM IS RUINING THE GAME! IM NOT FUCKING PLAYING THIS SHIT ANYMORE” I simply said it was a problem, in which MANY MANY people agree. I play the game everyday faithfully but I prefer to have 9 out of 10 games stomping kids rather than 9 out of 10 games getting shit on by clans and other sweaty ass players. It’s not fun playing that way and that’s the only point that was made. So get the fuck out of here.

          • iTYPE2ANNOY

  • lars

    why aren’t the supply drop wapons disabled… it isn’t fun to play against a full team obsidian steed….

    • Mr Doge

      Why does everyone like the Obsidian Steed? It shoots way too slow. Why doesn’t anyone like the Inferno? It kills so quick plus it looks 10x better.

      • ccrows

        TTK aside for a sec, the Steed is a 3 shot kill up close AND a 3 shot kill medium range. (4 shot long range)

        ^ That’s really good for an automatic AR,

        Sure the Inferno is faster, but it also requires an extra bullet which is critical if the opponent is using a stim.

        (cont)

        The only AR IMO that competes with the Steed is the RIP.

        The RIP is a 4 shot kill short, medium, & long with suppressor. If you take suppressor off, it’s 3 up close. The RIP also has less recoil than the steed and has a slightly faster TTK.

        ^ Those 2 ARs IMHO are (currently) the best in the game…

  • SoulTaker

    Well it looks like the COD cycle has once again started very early just like Ghosts. Lets wait for Treyarch to “save” COD. Oh come on you people will complain about the slightest thing in the next game.

    • Guywithbrains

      I saw a pretty funny but at the same time true comment about Treyarch. Someone said Treyarch’s games have the most amount of lag and bad spawns but players just say that it’s okay and praise the game like every Treyarch’s year.

      Nothing personal, if someone finds this post offensive.

      • Juses

        Treyarch > IW and SHG

        • MichiganerE

          According to the community
          2003 – 2010: IW > Treyarch
          2011 – 2013: Treyarch > IW
          2014 – present: Treyach > SHG > IW

          • Mr Doge

            Now its SHG=IW

          • MichiganerE

            I’m guessing that this would be 2015 – present, right?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Games change, some are better, some are bad. It all depends on how the design of the game is. If it’s done well like in Black Ops or Black Ops 2, then you tend to prefer it over bad game design like in Ghosts or possibly AW. For me, Treyarch’s game design is great, but their games are let down by crap hit registration and connection issues.

          • MichiganerE

            Yeah, I know all of this. I’m just going by the community’s overall opinion.

          • jordanxbrookes

            I’ve always liked Treyarch, ever since Black Ops. Black Ops 2 had great game design, but I wasn’t so into the near-future setting. Infinity Ward made the Modern Warfare series which I absolutely loved, then it was a flop with Ghosts. Sledgehammer made AW, and while I love the campaign, the MP is atrocious. All it takes is some listening and some fixing, and I might actually be able to enjoy this game until Treyarch’s title in November this year.

          • ccrows

            IMHO COD4 and BO2 were the 2 best games in the entire series…

          • jordanxbrookes

            My favourite will always be Black Ops. The amount of time I put into that game was unreal. Loved it so much.

          • MichiganerE

            What does this have to do with anything?

          • jordanxbrookes

            Just my opinion on the devs and their games.

          • MichiganerE

            Well, I like your opinion.

          • ccrows

            I remember the summer of 2103 when Treyarch rented Deds.

            Sure Deds aren’t the “end all be all answer” but for that short window of time, that was the best COD experience that I had experienced since COD4. I lost track of how many nuked I dropped during that time too (from not dying from BS),

            If AW removed SBMM and rented deds next summer, I would become the biggest “SH / AW fanboy” until it went away…

          • I would agree with that except for I would say personally that IW was the best developer from 2007-2008 because I didnt like MW2.

          • MichiganerE

            Okay, but I’m talking about the majority of CoD players.

          • ccrows

            MW2 was a mess, and couldn’t be fixed due to the drama of Old IW vs. Activision.

            Hopefully we get have a better MW2 experience in 2016 “IF” Iw makes the MW Collection… πŸ™‚

      • I dont think Treyarch’s games have any more lag than any other Call of Duty developer honestly. I dont think the hit registration is any worse either. Call me a Treyarch fanboy all you want, they are the best developer for the series at the moment IMHO.

    • While I will agree that Call of Duty players complain alot, its because we are passionate about the game. The Cod cycle does not exist for a lot of people like myself. I dont go back to the year before Cod unless the current one is an Infinity Ward game, as the last three they have done have been awful IMO.
      Ghosts was an awful game and I traded mine in within 2 months of launch. You can tell this game is a very solid game but it needs 2 major things fixed, SBMM and it needs to have real dedicated servers.

  • ScOott

    What I don’t understand is how do pro players get to become pro players n compete for money.. When if ur in the top 100 people all u get is a digital bit of gear :-s

      • Juses

        But… This isn’t ghosts so… Idk if you’ll lose the amour.

    • jordanxbrookes

      You get to keep it for a month until the next Season, which isn’t worth grinding for if I’m honest.

      • HenryDF

        Ugh hell no, didn’t realise that you lost the armor. Totally not worth it. Not given the quality of some of these matches I’m being put in.

  • Primey_

    It’s a bloody mess. SHG are idiots. It’s not hard to copy what the pros are playing with and put it into a playlist.

    You can earn supply drops, Weapon variants are allowed, You don’t start with everything unlocked, Uses your public classes. I could go on and on about how crap it is.

    • ccrows

      Read what you just wrote again.

      This time please take into account that Pubs is pretty much the exact same as ranked play in AW…

      • Primey_

        No they aren’t. Pubs allow everything. Ranked has most cheap crap banned. I go into a public match and I get kids trying to quick scope, not play the objective and go 5 – 20. I go into ranked and I get people who play the objective because they want to get some meaningless rank for meaningless armor.

        • It is LITTERALY Pubs with some item restrictions, it shouldn’t be like this.

          • Mr Doge

            It isn’t literally pubs you idiot. The people who play Ranked have far better skill than most people in pubs. Go play ranked before you comment on it you retard.

          • drew james

            No they don’t .

          • Because players doing ” better ” makes the actual gamemode different. And yes, I have played it. And I’m not going to respond to you if all you’re going to do is insult people like a child.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I don’t understand these CoD fanboys, man. We destroy their arguments, yet they keep coming. People who support BS support bad products.

          • No, it’s just Doge, he’s just a angry, really really angry person that will not stop with reason.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I’d appreciate it if he wasn’t so immature. We don’t HAVE to LOVE the game, we have the right to state its flaws lol. No game is perfect.

          • Neo

            He may be mad but that doesn’t stop you from being wrong.

            Ranked play is nothing like public match. At least it shouldn’t be. It’s generally the game with set restrictions. I like how you state “Oh it’s just pubs” when actually the two modes are just branches from the actual game, therefore neither is like the other. Players that go into Ranked are usually in the mentality of “I want to play MLG, and play the objective with like-minded players”, while there are quite a few that still want to just fuck about. While pubs is for everyone to either relax or try-hard. It’s also the difference between 6v6 and 4v4.

            Honestly who the fuck actually says “LEL RANKED IS JUST LIKE PUBS”

            Of course it’s going to be similar, it’s the same fucking game what are you expecting? :/

          • lmao why are you bringing up a dead topic? The arguement is over, for a really long while.

          • Neo

            I find this comment utterly hilarious because all of these idiots are fanboys and none of them seem to have a single argument because their tiny little brains can’t keep on a single subject.

            You’re also as stupid as they are.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You’re retarded. You should learn to elaborate. I bet you’re also a CoD fanboy.

          • Gg

            Actually the same people play in both. But in ranked play they actually want to try and win everytime

        • imBetterThanYou

          The only reason you say it’s meaningless armor is because you fucking suck and you can’t get into masters for your life. Stick to pubs shitface.

          • Primey_

            I don’t even play the fucking game retard. Remove that stick from your arse.

        • Neo

          So essentially you’re meaninglessly complaining?

          Are you salty or what?

      • HenryDF

        Not really. The quality of the matchmaking in Ranked is horrific. I’ve been basically lag-free until launch (yes, even with SBMM), but the moment I start playing Ranked I can’t do shit.

        It’s not the same. Particularly with people quitting the moment you start to lose – the amount of match forfeits (and the amount of times I’ve been left with just one other guy on the team) are ridiculous.

        • ccrows

          IDK, I just wish they would at least region lock the lobbies for pubs.

          When a match starts lagging from the beginning, and I hear the culprit on the mic, I’m like ohhhhh OK that’s why.

          FFS I’m just tired of the MM going across the pond just to find someone with the same skill level. There’s TONS of people that play the game in my area, give me one of them instead…

          • HenryDF

            I’d never really seen any issues with SBMM before now. Pubs had been fine. But every game has been laggy, and almost every game has resulted in one team getting outnumbered.

            It’s just a terrible experience.

    • Bobthebuilderincod

      This pretty muich sums it up man. I’m not a big fan of how this whole thing has been handled at all. Thank you for being vocal and for making a well made and clear argument. I hope to see you in the future good friend, and best of luck to you. What system do you play on? Maybe we could play together some time.

    • Emrah Avvurur

      I advise you to make a new account for ranked play so you can use your 5 classes there.

    • Terje

      I totally agree with Primey_

      You get drops which gives you UAV etc (scorestreaks) which is not allowed in the MLG ruleset. So I don`t know why SH made it allowed in Ranked. Makes my angry everytime.
      Supply drop weapons should be banned.
      You don`t get a penalty for leaving a game.

      And also to get the Grand Master golden armour, you have to be in the top 100. How can we find out where we stand when there is no “leaderboard, league table” or something.
      So basically everyone in Grand Master will get the Golden Armour..

      Just so much shit, thats sooo easily to fix/update.

  • Is this live on PS3? I am still in season 0 apparently…

  • Max Martinez

    Can’t play a single game without my team mates backing out. People can still choose OP variants of guns. Everything is shit for now.

    • Ak74u

      Yea my teamates always back out too and I hate that because then I end up losing. Man ranked play is difficult props to those in higher divisions I’m in silver

      • imBetterThanYou

        The reason your teammates keep backing out is because you probably weigh down your team because you’re a fat piece of shit. You know if you were actually good at the game, your teammates would stay because you can carry your own weight. You do not know the first thing about competitive you dumb piece of shit.

        • Ak74u

          Hahaha who the f*ck are you to insult me? I’m usually the one carrying them and they back out as soon as the other team gets one little score or as soon as the game starts. Stfu I don’t care much about competitive and being sweaty. I guess some one woke up on the wrong side of the bed today or is on their period lol.

        • Neo

          Actually who even are you?

          Troll detected. Players ragequit because they’re sad little kids like you.

  • SkylineDesigns

    Ranked play sucks. gots DDosed twice today already. also supply dropped weapons can still be used when it was supposed to be banned. also supply drops can still be used

    • CharlieIntel

      Weapon Varients are not banned.

  • ItsBormo

    I think if your on a 1 or 2 bar connection you should be able to leave and not lose any points because you can’t contribute towards the team on bad connection

  • Guywithbrains

    What do you guys think about if all three studios would do a new Call of Duty together?

    Campaign: IW
    Co-op: Treyarch
    Multiplayer: Sledgehammer Games with help from IW (netcode)
    DLC: IW (Ghosts DLC maps were awesome!)

    • Juses

      Campaign from Infinty ward? No, the ghosts campaign was pretty bad. I’d say let sledehammer and treyarch make the campaign.

      Co-op from treyarch? Yes

      Multiplayer from sledehammer and IW? Nope just let Treyarch make the multiplayer because IW and Sledgehammer is clueless on how to make a multiplayer game.

      Dlc? Let IW and treyarch make the dlc.

      • Guywithbrains

        Well your alternatives are good too except Treyarch MP. In my opinion Black Ops 2 (yes I say this 1000th time now) is full of BS. I prefer more Black Ops 1 but I give them a chance to win me to their side with their next Call of Duty. I hope it will be WaW2. πŸ™‚

      • We haven’t seen SHGames DLC yet. Maybe you should give it a try first?

        • Juses

          Uhhh…. SHG is pretty bad at designing maps and making good spawns.

          • And who makes the better maps In your opinion?

          • Juses

            The original infinity ward. But now it’s treyarch.

      • Meh.

        Treyarch on campaign, because of loadouts and multiple ending with choices.

        IW on DLC and Co-op, as extinction was decent and the DLC in ghost was goo

        Multiplayer should be Treyarch and SH because Treyarch was very close to making a good cod with Black ops 2 but there was abuse of grenades and some other stuff and SH ironed that out.

    • Xecho

      Campaign: Treyarch
      Co-Op: Treyarch
      Multiplayer: IW (even though last one was shit and SHG is not my favorite even though CoD this year is pretty good)
      DLC:None

      • Guywithbrains

        IW has done those awesome multiplayers in MW series. Although after MW2 a part of the team went to make Titanfall. πŸ˜›

    • jordanxbrookes

      Treyarch are fine on their own.

    • The only thing I would let IW do is hit-detection. It was superb in Ghosts.

    • Kill Denied

      Campaign: Treyarch
      Co-Op: Treyarch
      Multiplayer: Treyarch
      DLC: Black Ops Treyarch

      • Guywithbrains

        Idea was all three together. Not just overhyped Treyarch. They do good campaigns and Zombies is okay – although zombies is starting to be in category “already seen” IMO.

  • Kill Denied

    • Guywithbrains

      This game to Europe and America with current gen graphics and I’m sold. Another cool thing would be MW collection to current gen.

      • Kill Denied

        It needs some revisions though

        • Guywithbrains

          Talking about MW collection?

          Remove all deathstreaks, OMA, Danger Close and Commando perks. Also streaks Stealth Bomber and EMP from the support package.

  • My first supply drop during ranked play was the Obsidian Steed. The gun I’ve been searching for almost 15 prestiges… It’s not even that good, guess people thought it’s op because of the +2 damage

    • Xecho

      inferno is better

      • Yeah, seems like it. Now I have to go through hundreds of supply drops to get that one…

        • Xecho

          Ugh been through 100 already.. I had the Obsidian but got rid of it. It sucks

  • twitch/iiillilili

    i wish theyd fix the AE4 Venom that shouldve unlocked at 300 kills…… and I wish theyd tweak the supply drops, I have gotten some absolute SHIT, and im max prestige, i feel like I shouldnt see that many MK14’s anymore…… or gloves….. or boots…. ugh…

  • Tim Vikouski

    listening to all this about the game is why i stopped playing cod…. 2 years in a row fails

    • smayo

      Same here, but i must admit i got tricked into buying them each year, i didn’t buy AW until my friends talked me into it, now none of them are playing this game anymore, another €60 down the drain…

  • Optic dildoshow

    Game froze, lost 20 points, lost connection to host, lost 20 points, why even launch ranked when the connection is so so broken? Playing ranked on this game is for people into being punished

  • Optic dildoshow

    Update: winning 1- 0 on Detroit and, two of my party members games freeze at exactly the same time, down to two members, lost 6 1. Are people actually ddosing to win games?

  • SoulTaker

    If two or more of your teamates leave you should not lose any points in your rank it’s only fair.

  • Guywithbrains

    What do people think in here about an idea who some Reddit user thought about: he wanted a punishment for all players who leave the match before it ends, even in public.

    Now as League of Legends player this sounds stupid because why should I stay in a match where I am losing? Teammates feed enemy and don’t play the objective – I and everyone else should have right to leave and find better players to own team, right?

    • Siftblade of Rivia

      I think the punishment shouldn’t be anywhere near as bad as LoL’s, which is a ban from the game. It should just be something like “50% XP reduction for the next 3 games.”

    • Favorite Ape

      No punishment until they fix the connection, which I doubt will happen. I won’t stay in a laggy game.

    • No. We don’t need to mix competitive anymore with public matches, it’s just casual gaming where people hop on for a few minutes or leave if they just feel like they want a new lobby. Obviously in ranked there should be penalties because you’re ruining the game for your teammates and most people play there because they are dedicated about it.

      Cod also lags quite often, then there are glitchers, hackers, spawn trappers… Please no punishment for leaving from pubs. That’s my opinion

  • Juses

    Do you guys think Drift0r will get another “leak” on the future cod in March like he did with the last two cods?

    • Xecho

      prob

    • Aw too late. I still couldn’t have used it because I’m gamesharing with my friend so I couldn’t ‘gameshare’ this from my Russian account

  • DGamez

    I already gave up on Ranked Play. If you don’t have a squad with you then your team has random noobs who leave the game after going down 1 point. Plus I’m always getting kicked because of connection. I needed 10 points to go into Silver division got kicked out 3 times now I’m back to needing 45 points -.-

  • jesus

    UPDATE: 1/11/2014, 11:40 AM PT β€” We have released an update to resolve Ranked Play issues on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

    These lazy slobs didn’t even patch this shit right I have yet to see any patch update and still getting reset back to bronze…

    • Ak74u

      They haven’t even gave us any of the patches that they put on the current gen consoles like the gun patches

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    I like ranked play but there is a few problems that happens at least once every 3 games, Someone either doesn’t connect to the game, Someone backs out during the game or my team goes AFK. Please bring the 5 minute probation ASAP. I would appreciate it SHG

  • Devon Woods

    Does anyone know if there has there been any new updates about Ranked Play on Xbox 360? It still shows “Season 0” and not “Season 1” and will not let me out of Bronze.

    • Devon Woods

      Nevermind …I just found out they have postponed Season 1 on 360 and PS3 due to coding issues πŸ™
