David Vonderhaar has tweeted confirming that Domination mode in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 multiplayer will not have a time limit; instead, the match will end upon reaching the maximum score.


Vonderhaar hinted at this feature back in November 2014; he tweeted that he was play testing Domination without a time limit, and that the match switches sides when team reaches the 100 point mark.

    FIRST!

    EDIT: Now that I managed to get my first place here comes my real comment: I am afraid that this pleases players who stomp on me until they have to get score to win. That happens a lot in Momentum in AW: people just feast kills and then after half time they capture that objective.

      Your parents must be proud.

    • Juses

      Stop worrying about getting “stompt” on. Treyarch does not always have to carter to the noobs. Just get better and you won’t always be getting “stompt” on.

      • jooker-jr

        The same can be said for AW’s SBMM.

        • ScOott

          If u get stomped on a.w you shouldn’t be playing cod ..Sbmm prevents this ..

        Get better? How if people spawn trap me and can’t move? When I always end up with lvl 19 teammates against full sweaty enemy party. I can’t get better and in casual game where I like to have fun I should not try too hard to get better.

        EDIT: Also Treyarch has never catered to “noobs”. They have always catered to eSports and pubstompers and that’s why everyone likes Black Ops 2.

        • Juses

          1. Level doesn’t matter
          2. It’s your fault if you get spawntrapped because you allow the enemy to push you back to your spawn
          3. theres no way you only play against people

          • Guywithbrains

            My fault? I can’t fight 1 v 6 and win you know it. You need teamwork to be able to avoid getting spawn trapped.

            Seems like you identified yourself. No wonder that you like Black Ops 2. It is easy to stomp kids with full party while people like me fight alone against unbeatable enemy.

            But hey whatever live with your false skill image. Go and put some videos to your YT channel and show how you go 110-2 against kids. So cool.

          • Juses

            What are you talking about? I mainly just play solo Dom on black ops 2. I don’t spawn trap or get spawn trapped so…yea. This “unbeatable” enemy is only not beatable to you. Like I said you just need to get better. Btw what makes you think I upload YouTube videos.

    • zombiefreak935

      Keshev was first. XD

      • Juses

        Hao?

  • jooker-jr

    I’m starting to hate killstreak-foucsed like domination, but I hope other people enjoy it.

  • Aodhan

    So.. what if.. people didn’t capture flags at all in Domination and it’ll go endless without time limit? lol

    • Guywithbrains

      I think match will end if you don’t capture for example B flag. If I remember right you had to capture B flag before 50 score or game ends.

    • RdJokr

      Hypothetically, that would be the case. However, there’s always the people who crave points for scorestreaks, so they’ll always go for the flags. It’s very rare to find a match where people don’t go for the flags.

  • I like this. I felt like the time limit prevented some great DOM comebacks you could make in older Call of Duty’s. I’m excited for the New Dom

  • Juses

            you know Juses only talks like that for the attention and because he thinks hes cool like that. I know about 5 kids who type like him and they all think they’re the coolest kids ever when in fact everyone dislikes them in real life. 🙂 dw scott im on your side

          • ScOott

            I love juses .. I just know people are starting to get peed off with it every article and I understand why .. They come here to talk about the article and we have already taken over half the coment section.. That’s the main reason I’m stopping .. *edit* when I say getting peed off with it, I’m not talking about Jesus I’m talking about the amount of people that now speak like it..

          • Michael:GodOfEWN

            Ah relax, it’s cool to do once in a while.

          • Juses

            Actually, I don’t. I started tying like that before it was really “cool”. What exactly makes you think I type like that for attention, can you explain? I only type like that for fun :P. Also if you didn’t notice that my name is juses so people expect me to type how I normally talk on here, so when I don’t type like that someone says something.

          • Yeah, I remember when I first saw you on CI a little over a year ago, and I was like wtf is this guy doing. But then as time passed, things just worked out and the definition of sweg has become more pronounced. Let the sweg live on! 🙂

      • Daniel

        AW is AWesome
        But BO3 is the bomb

  • Humza Qureshi

    And then pub-stomping returns. An actual good reason for Clan Wars now to stop them.

  • Michael:GodOfEWN

    Now let’s hope TDM will be 125 per kill.

    • jooker-jr

      80 is good.

      • Brad

        He means 125 score per kill not 125 kills

        • zombiefreak935

          He was not very clear on that.

        • jooker-jr

          Thanks for clarifying, but I think 100 is spot on.

          • FazalGaming

            We need 1000 per kill

          • zombiefreak935

            Hope you’re joking.

          • jooker-jr

            Why not 2000 ?

          • Michael:GodOfEWN

            Hmm I disagree. 100 is too little and 150 (that special playlist bo2 had for a while is too much. 125 would be a right balance. Or as I’ve heard from others maybe for objective gameplay, have the scorestreak system and for TDM and FFA have the killstreak system. Yea I know it’s not likely but I can dream.

        • Michael:GodOfEWN

          Thanks brad. I suppose I should have clarified that.

    • Tsaki

      Why change the kill value when they can modify the value of the scorestreaks?

  • ScOott

    I love domination, i just hate the spawns.. I hope they are actually improved like it has been stated … I always end up going back to kill confirmed and tdm because of bad spawns in Dom …

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      Me too man…
      we need a spawn system like how it was in MW2 Highrise :/…

      • ScOott

        Yh, I wouldn’t even mind waiting that bit longer to find a decent spawn .. I dont know anything about the technical side of spawns but you would of thought their was a way round it by now …

  • Drasadex

    Seems like a decent idea.

    • ScOott

      Yh man great job, maybe you should change your pic to an angel ? ..

      • Drasadex

        Hook me up with the appropriate pic and I might use it lol

        • ScOott

          Lol I’m on it .. This might take a while …

  • mekky3765

    Is ttk going to be like bo2??? I really hope so. Don’t want AW or ghosts ttk.

    • Daniel

      AW is the same as bo2 slightly faster

      • So they’re different, you just proved mekky3765’s point by denying it. 😉

      • mekky3765

        Ya we want it SAME as BO2
        .. Any news on that??

        • ScOott

          Yh I read somewhere same as black ops 2 .. Might of even been an article on here :-s can’t remember ..

  • Daniel

    I want uplink
    And BO1 style CTF not that BO2 competitive crap

    • The Flash

      yes BO1 CTF for the win, MW3 ruined it and 3arc thought it was a good idea to continue that trait in BO2

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Just make sniping harder and I will be very happy.

    • ScOott

      No, sniping is a skill as it is, i am very good at cod.. But I can’t snipe for shit.. If i ever get quick scoped.. I don’t rage.. I just watch the kill cam in envy …

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Cod is not a skillful game, nor does quick scoping require any, if snipers are in the game, then they should he used like snipers,

        • ScOott

          If it takes no skill? If it takes no skill to play cod why you biatch about SBMM …unless you have 4.kd someone will be better at you at cod … If quick scoping didn’t take skill we would all be doing it …

          • Guywithbrains

            I agree quickscoping takes skill. However, I would like to see actual sniping in Call of Duty games. Nothing is more annoying than kid running with sniper and shutting you down with lucky no scope.

          • ScOott

            More people would just camp ? What i would like to see is sniper rifles not acting as shotguns.. We both come round a corner and I have an a.r or anyother gun I should win that gun fight every single time against a sniper.. I think since not having scopes on snipers has been around its been more of a problem …

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Your logic is weird.

            Then Sledgehammer ruined call of duty. We complain about SBMM for a reason. It breaks the game. The kill death ratios are far too varied to have it in the game. Plus, well, cod is a casual game, and sledgehammer is forcing the stupid esports crap on us. That doesn’t make the game more skillful. It just forces you to face people with similar stats. Just broken.

            You could easily quickscope on Black Ops 2. I can get on various streaks.

          • ScOott

            Lol how is it .. If I’m playing someone and I’m destroying them 30-5 I am more skilled then them, theirfore it must be a skilled game … The fact that you can get on various streaks with a sniper and I can’t proves it involves skill, ie you are more skilled than me with a sniper rifle ..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Skill means to have an expertise… when I think of a skill, I think of something that actually matters. Like a profession.

            Such a casual game like cod doesn’t require skill. I couldn’t care less about skill. I want to have fun, and trying to be the best is not fun and is not what the game is about. Overpowered quickscoping in bo2 is not fun on the receiving end, and should have some sort of tweak.

            If sniping is like bo2, it’ll be problematic.

        • DEMOLITION12

          you say cod takes no skill but i guarantee you have a shit kd

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Kd is irrelevant to skill…

          • DEMOLITION12

            hahahahah good one

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It’s a fact. Stats mean nothing.

          • DEMOLITION12

            so what does then?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The fact that it’s a game where fun is the main factor? No stat actually matters, nor dignifies any thing, especially on a casual game.

          • DEMOLITION12

            its a casual game because you are bad at it?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            How can I be bad at a casual game? What if I was? Tell me how that’s relevant. No, CoD is defined as a Casual game, that is a fact.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        be*

    • Daniel

      I want the l96a1 from bo1 so bad

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        It’s alright I guess. I don’t care about particular weapons, except the Commando.

    • The Flash

      agreed, BO2 has become a big sniper fest and its so annoying, everyone uses snipers and TIs, BO1 had it right with its snipers and not everyone uses them on there

  • jordanxbrookes

    Interesting concept of Dom. Hope it plays out well.

  • Daniel

    I hope when you are half away through capturing a flag it gets neutralized like in AW

    • Kobrah

      I hope so, I like that feature

  • Thatlazykid

    This is great 🙂

    • Or so you think…

      • Thatlazykid

        U wot m8?

        • The fact that there is no time limit might not me a good thing… Spawn trapping, pubstomping, anything to prevent the game from ending may pose a threat to this idea…

          • Thatlazykid

            Nahh it will be better 🙂

  • The Flash

    now i want to see the announcement of them making CTF a fun gamemode again like in BO1

    • Kobrah

      I love CTF but can’t play it due to low player count in Australia :'(

      • The Flash

        which game are you referring to? arent the servers the same for all countries, i mean BO1s CTF numbers at its prime goes up to about 150 in the evenings where i am, and you can get into one of those games usually, below 100, you wont get into anything

        • Kobrah

          I was referring to BOII and AW. I can’t join lobbies outside of Australia or New Zealand because the lag is obviously insane

          • The Flash

            well that sucks, but no-one plays it since it was ruined

          • Kobrah

            What did they change?

          • The Flash

            In WAW/BO1, you could not see the flag carrier without UAV or blackbird, and ghost could protect them from UAV as normal, MW3 changed it so everyone could see the flag carrier in a delayed uav sweep regardless of uavs being up or they have ghost and they’d have a big KILL symbol on their head, and 3arc decided to be stupid and keep that addition in BO2 and its been like that since, so since then, the mode has sucked.

    • zack

      All I play is ctf in aw.

      • The Flash

        I’m not a huge MP fan in general, but BO1 was my first COD as well as my favourite, and across all CODs all i play really is TDM, but i adored CTF on BO1 and is one of the few objective modes i liked, and then when it was in MW3 it was ruined when the flag carrier had a massive kill sign on his head, and then even worse BO2 decided to continue with that and it completely ruined the gamemode just because mlg players wanted the game to be a little more fast paced, the element of not knowing where the flag carrier is made it so fun and provoked teamwork and communication to find out where the guy is hiding with you flag

  • jahladagaming

    Wow, cue the huge kill games when both teams decide to ignore the flags.

    • Easy fix (Probably already there in older cods) if none of the flags get captured, the game gets a short time limit.

    • Underdog BO1 FTW!

      never happened before.

  • I’m now worried about BO3 pubstompers. I didn’t really think about them that much when we first heard about this news. :/

  • JoZer805g

    Classic Dom please.

  • Tep Kok

    Awful. 1st round should be a 5 minute timer with no score cap and 2nd should be no timer first to 200.

  • Ryumoau

    i love how open David is on twitter about the game’s development. 🙂

  • ghosts sucks

    THE HYPE IS REAL!

  • Redrum

    is it November yet?

  • Ak74u

    Yessssssssss omg I’m so happy now, all I play is domination and I am very good at it. I’m not trying to show off but I’m really good also with capping flags and now I’m going to be able to get even more score.

  • LovekillerX

    I don’t know how this Domination without time limit gives me an opportunity to do a comeback. If the enemy team is better than my team of course that type of Domination doesn’t change it. They just have more time to hold all flags (or flags A and B or C and B) and spawn trap.

    “Older” domination for the win. I can actually know how many minutes I have to fight for nothing.

  • RSM

    Could somebody please answer this question. When could you start pre downloading advanced warfare because my internet has a very low download speed so I don’t want to be able to pre download BO3 a day before because I wouldn’t be able to play it straight away. All input is appreciated.

    • It started around late October as far as I remember. PSN will most likely be able to pre-download first though…

  • CookieChairman

    I never put a time limit on any game mode anyway

  • DanzTheMan4

    It’s the small details like this that make a great game.

  • Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

    Ok two things with this change. Players will definetely be spawntrapping and great classical “comebacks” will be possible on this game.
