    Take that Destiny

    • What did Destiny ever do to you?

      • I dont know what it did to him, but it isn’t very good.

      • Rodoe528

        Nothing, but it exist

    • jooker-jr

      Destiny and cod are brothers. πŸ™‚

      • Rodoe528

        Nope. Destiny sucks IMO

  • TheDemonOfHate

    Christmas Noobs xD

  • common sense

    Considering what other choices we had.. Not very impressive. Take out SBMM and watch the REAL(notice they don’t say how many copys were sold compared to older cods anymore) numbers fly up.

    • Super029something

      SBMM effects little to no sales

      • ccrows

        It’s gonna affect a lot of DLC/MT sales if people give up on AW because of it…

        • SoulTaker

          People will still buy it. Look at Ghosts a lot of people on here hated Ghosts, but you know what those same people were excited each new DLC trailer. Just like they’ll buy each new COD on day one because of the hype then later turn around and say “this game sucks”. People need to stop buying COD on day one because stuff like this turns them off. Pro Tip for many of the people on here don’t buy Treyarchs COD until a month or two pass.

          • ccrows

            Different target audiences.

            Believe it or not, there were people that liked Ghosts, but they were in the minority. (especially here)

            I still think Ghosts DLC sales overall was a failure if you needed R Lee Ermey and Snoop Dogg to help you out…

        • Super029something

          If stupid people are gonna base their purchase off of that, so be it.

          • ccrows

            If they aren’t playing the game anymore, then there’s no point in buying it.

            I barely made it to DLC4 with Ghosts.

            If they keep putting me in lobbies with people from other countries, then yeah I’m probably not gonna make it that far. Who knows…

          • Favorite Ape

            You would be stupid not to base your purchase at least partially on that. Otherwise you’d just be a mindless fanboy.

      • Favorite Ape

        SBMM is going to greatly affect the sales. Players don’t like it and give the game poor reviews because of it. Prospective customers read those reviews and don’t buy it. After the ghosts disaster people are paying attention to player reviews more, as they should.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Just forget about AW and play the older CoDs like I have been doing. Been having a lot of fun in Black Ops.

      • CrowReap .

        Agree aw it’s a piece of shit, more boring than ghosts. I actually had fun with ghosts played it through it’s entire life cycle. Gave up aw in a month cause sbmm and lag

        • jordanxbrookes

          I can only play 10, maybe 20 minutes of AW before I get fed up of it. I’ve been playing Black Ops for hours. It certainly keeps me busy lol

      • Guywithbrains

        I understand why you prefer Black Ops after seeing Nuketown demolition videos.

        Not a surprise…

        • jordanxbrookes

          Black Ops is GOAT.

  • SoulTaker

    If you don’t like how A.W is then stop playing COD for the year. There are so many great games you could try out for the year. A.W isn’t the only game out there. GTA, Wolfenstein,Borderlands, Destiny,Far Cry 4 etc. I didn’t like Ghosts at all, but I didn’t come back to C.I just to complain in each article about the imperfections the game has.

    • Favorite Ape

      Did you buy AW? Then you have a perfect right to voice your disapproval of how bad it is.

      • SoulTaker

        The thing is each year it’s the same people and the COD cycle. For example why do people buy on day one since they know each COD launch has a bad start? Why not be smart and wait a month and a half and see what people say about it. Black Ops 2 has a bad start, and so did Ghosts. I knew about SBMM and when the free weekend came up on Steam I played it and my connection was always perfect and the SBMM didn’t bug me at all and I got it for 25$ on PC after a month and a half of it being out.
        Summary don’t buy COD on day one.
        Plus a better way to show your voice of disapproval would be Condrey and Sledgehammers Twitters. I doubt they come on to Charlie Intel to read the comments man.

        • Favorite Ape

          Good suggestion to wait. Can’t be all the same people though because roughly 2 million people didn’t buy AW after buying ghosts.

          • SoulTaker

            Waiting it out is the best thing (till Christmas or New Years since the price goes down a bit). I think people are realizing that they are better games out there or maybe they want to try something new like I said there are some great games out there at the moment dude. Hell I even went back and got Borderlands 1 and I’ve gotten 16 hours in in a couple days. When Treyarchs game comes out I just think that waiting is best since launch day- January is “beta” phase of the COD games.
            πŸ™‚

  • A new year, a new noob(s). The best part of playing cod in the new year! πŸ˜›

    • Not with SBMM. Jk I won’t be “that guy” in the comments section

  • Minecraft and 2k15 beat destiny, wow.

  • Ryumoau

    congrats to Sledgehammer. πŸ™‚

    Though its kinda sad to see the ps3 and ps4 versions behind since those are the ones i have. i also hope the ps4 player counts don’t drop as bad as Ghosts did last year.

    • Juses

      More people still have cod on ps4 than xb1

  • Favorite Ape

    Still won’t release the sales figures. Substantially less than ghosts. Congrats on another decline in sales.

  • Ghost_and_AW_BIGFAIL

    Ghost and AW are the worst cods i have played, pure trash!

    • Juses

      Yup.

    • Guywithbrains

      Black Ops series are the worst IMO. I have seen lately videos about Nuketown spawn traps in Demolition. The worst spawns -award goes to Treyarch.

  • Ech!

    I honestly have no problem with SBMM, sure it’s different to other games but it’s more of a challenge (which I like), but what really rustles my jimmies is HMS being incapable of downgrading and or releasing an update which was available to next gen systems long ago. I hope they haven’t forgotten about us last gen…ers

    • Ak74u

      Yes I’m waiting for the last gen patches too

  • Muszic

    Keep SBMM please. I want to actually play against kids with thumbs so i can have good competition. The “casuals” who complain about it can go play Destiny. That is all

  • Ak74u

    Last gen last gen last gen last gen last gen last gen last gen last gen last gen last gen last gen patches patches patches patches patches patches patches patches when will we get the patches on last gen???

      You’ll get the patch…..once 3arch game hits stores.

  • MrTexMex

    yea cod aw is a real mlg sweat fest; I mean really i got sweat drippin down my balls every game

  • jooker-jr

    For their first game I would say that AW is a success ( MY OPINION )

    • Guywithbrains

      I agree. Everyone have to take notice that it was their first game.

      We’ll see how this year veteran Treyarch is going to succeed.

      • jooker-jr

        Treyarch make great games but their problem is the technical issues.

  • PS4&XB1+CoDsuck.ShuddaGotaWiiU

    …and this game has still sold LESS than Ghosts LOL! Sales figures mean nothing if the game is rubbish – just look at Destiny as a prime example. I really regret buying an XB1 and PS4 because there is literally no good games for them and all the AAA ones are either broken or just pure garbage. The gaming industry is doomed now and all these muppets pre-ordering and buying season passes just fuels the publishers wallets and we get a load of rubbish in return. I really regret not getting a Wii U now because it’s the only console with good games.
