    Beta LAGGING as Hell today! What happened????

    • Server crash

      • Diego Diniz

        First day was ok!
        But today is IMPOSSIBLE play with this massive LAG!

  • DJ3K

    let’s all lag together lol

  • daHolby

    Are the server (lag) issues related to PSN or are they related to Treyarch/Activision?

    • DJ3K

      treyarch, their servers got fried, Vahn said on twitter

  • jordanxbrookes

    Great news for those who didn’t pre-order. Have fun.

    • daHolby

      If you can get into a match without lag… It’s going to crumble now that the flood gates are going to be open.

  • So that’s why you could buy the digital pre order of the game in store on the beta…

  • Redrum

    Off topic but Hopefully Xbox/PC will have less issues or none of the ones PS4 has.

    • The Flash

      thats why im glad PS4 gets its first, as they havent really been able to play it at all really with server issues and all, but they can fix this all for Xbone and PC hopefully making it smoother when it comes for them

      • I’ve been able to play it quit a bit actually. But it would be nice if I could play it problem free when its time for the Xbox One beta as I will be playing that one as well.

      • Besides the servers being down for a brief time I have been able to play problem free. Even when the servers had a problem I was able to get a party of 6 and go into an online match and invite 6 other friends to be on the opposite team. It worked, so I really haven’t had any issues. I personally don’t care about consoles, I got both 🙂

        • The Flash

          Oh yeah i know its got nothing to do with the console itself, but PS4 is first to get it and so the first to confront issues – though obviously this is a beta. But Xbox encountered its fair share with the DLCs for BO2, where when Die Rise came out for Xbox, it was virtually unplayable and clearly hadnt been beta tested at all, and we were essentially paying for a beta, i’m not sure what it was like when it arrived on PS3, but the issues were not fixed on Xbox till not even MOTD had come out and which point no-one wanted to play Die Rise anymore

    • Prostidude

      Yeah that’s why I’m happy e get last. They get the problems…

      • TheMarkofRay

        COD games having lag isn’t console exclusive but however you cope.

        • Choppabro2psn

          Idiots even know that. Besides lag, I haven’t had any issues, and I personally havent lagged, I’m just hearing reports about it.

  • Dante

    Only time I got lag was when my ping jumped from low 20’s to upper 100’s closer to 200. Other then that it was fine for me.

  • drjakeyoung

    I’ve been lagging like shit since the start of the beta. For some reason, every [email protected] game seems to lag. Hope they fix this for the final game.

    • Siftblade

      It was working flawlessly for me this morning. It started lagging like crazy after they raised the level cap and unlocked more gear. I think it was a bug with the update, hopefully they fix it ASAP.

      • The7Reaper

        I was lagging crazily after the level was raised I just reset my router and now perfect connection

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Hey, at least we are here to beta test the issues. No one knows how much we are helping with this beta test. Not even the half of it.

    • LovekillerX

      Hey it is Treyarch I expected it and wasn’t disappointed. I’m still glad I got couple of “lag free” days. Game is overall fun and nice but this is something Treyarch has to learn someday. Roll on November when there will probably be chaos launch.

      • Jenish Katuwal

        Damn mate you really are a AW Fanboy aren’t you? I liked Cod 4 myself the best but really? Can you understand that this is a beta and even though its a beta its a better game than AW will ever be.
        PS: There was some lag but the Beta was mostly lag free and the lag that did occur was fixed shortly after.

        • LovekillerX

          Did I say something about AW? No. Because I say flaws from beta it makes me AW fanboy? Pretty stupid statement. I can prefer Sledgehammer Games over Treyarch but that doesn’t mean I say flaws because AW is better…

          Think twice before you post. You are really Treyarch fanboy because you don’t want to see the flaws. Get your head out of your butt and think clearly mate.

          • Jenish Katuwal

            I’ve seen all the flaws there is, how am I a treyarch fanboy when I think cod 4 is the best one out there? You, being the AW fanboy, cant see that bo3 is a really good game.

        • Andrew Park

          I’m a bit confused. I didn’t see any mention of Advanced Warfare…. And it’s not like he was talking shit on BO3. In fact, it seems as if he actually enjoyed the game. The only relevant point you made was your response to his issues with lag, which you correctly responded that that is expected with a beta, one of whose main purpose is to test server load.

          Seems like you really wanted to rip on someone who likes Advanced Warfare though lol. Maybe you should have waited for someone who actually mentioned Advanced Warfare to comment.

  • Will WilFredo Mendoza

    After all the trouble alot of people had to go through and ask for a BETA CODE??? TROLLARCH!!!!

    • RdJokr

      It’s not Treyarch’s decision, that’s probably something on Activision and Sony’s end.

      • Kobrah

        Yep, Vahn confirmed it’s above his pay grade

        • Kobrah

          Mobile won’t let me post link

          • Kyle Soule

            I honestly think the devs should earn more money than the publishers.

          • Kobrah

            They seem do do more work, that’s for sure!

          • Kyle Soule

            Yep

      • CoDforever

        why you saying that like its a bad thing?

        • RdJokr

          I’m saying, the beta being open to the public is a business choice that’s not made by Treyarch. And yet here we are, people blaming them for everything.

          • CoDforever

            Cod devs will NEVER win. I thought us mature cod fans have established that already.

      • Hans Bélanger

        True. You can pray to Vonderhaar as much as you want, never forget he is Activision’s puppet

    • TheMarkofRay

      So someone not pre ordering yet begging for codes is them trolling?

    • Anagn

      you must be a special kind of stupid to have trouble getting a beta code…

    • spoiled brat

    • LovekillerX

      Yet people defend Treyarch to death. If Treyarch f*cks up something it can be accepted but wait until IW and SHG does something…

      I think they just pissed on top of us. Yes, it is just a little beta but think about the principle: beta was for those who PREORDER. This was just another marketing gimmick to boost sales.

      If you think from marketing perspective, they pretty much did what everyone else would have done. I don’t care but many people do. Especially those who hunted beta code for days.

      I don’t see why Treyarch can f*ck up things but other developers can’t because everything IW and SHG do is someway wrong. Selective criticism I would say…

      • KristoDude

        You are complaining about that we who have played the game for 3 days meet noobs who havent and maybe someone who dont play Cod at all? That is perfect. Know i can see if they buffed G.I Unit without playing super serious and better connection for everybody!

        • KristoDude

          Yes I know i had a misspelt word

          • Kobrah

            You have an account. You can just edit your comment

        • Hans Bélanger

          Althow your point is valid, it would be considered immoral to give BO3 for free 6 months after launch, why would it be diffetent for a beta I payed 70$ for?

          • Dante

            We’re actually not paying $60+ for the beta we’re paying $60+ for the game and the beta was just an added bonus. Also you can cencel your preorder at any time.

          • Hans Bélanger

            As I already told jordanxxxbrookes, this is exactly what i am going to do.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        Making the Beta open to all is a fuck up? lol

        • jordanxxxbrookes

          Damn near every person I personally know that pre orders does so, so that we can all play right at midnight and we play like 3 hours on launch night because we are fiends lol. It’s amazing how many of these clowns are now pretending they preordered AW for that extra map or preordered BO3 for this beta. The beta being open to anyone’s only negative is potential server issues but positive is noobs to destroy.

          • Hans Bélanger

            As a matter of principals, i will cancel my preorders after the beta, so yes i preordered only for the beta. Yet, i m glad to have noobs to destroy :p

        • Hans Bélanger

          If you ask some people to pay 70$ for a code and others nothing at all, yes it is fucked up.

    • Can’t even appreciate a beta huh..cool

    • CoDforever

      chill , almost every game that has a fucking beta requires you to pre order the game first. I remember so many people begging for beta codes for the bf4, titanfall and destiny betas. I think all those betas eventually become free as well.

  • Bloodyman2103

    Well, it’s a good thing to do an public beta, but it isn’t really fair compared to the ones who pre-ordered. We just pre-ordered it to get the beta 2 days earlier.

    • Siftblade

      Well you can easily cancel, lol.

      • Bloodyman2103

        True :p

    • Jonita Dorsey

      This is not fair at all not saying they should not have the beta. Damn we rushed to pre-order because of the beta just to get told it is now free.

  • Gamerazor247

    That’s some greedy shit Activision.
    *facepalm*

  • MichiganerE

    Would you look at that! Even LESS of a reason to pre-order BO3 or any game for that matter!

    • Jonita Dorsey

      Wow really smh they should extend it because of all the issues they had.

      • MichiganerE

        That seems reasonable.

        • jordanxxxbrookes

          So….You hate that you were duped into pre ordering the game for beta access(let’s pretend you weren’t going pre order even if they offered a BO3 logo’d ink pen) but you’re fine with them extending the date so your fiend ass can keep playing lmao. Next you’re going to complain about the quality of McDonald’s beef despite going there 5 days a week

          • MichiganerE

            How can I keep playing the Beta if I had never played it to begin with?

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            So you don’t have the beta and didn’t spend any money and just came here to talk shit and rally against the man? Gotcha

          • MichiganerE

            Whenever did I talk shit and “rally against the man”?

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Well, the point of a beta is to beta test these issues, so… I think that we should be appreciative and not be self-entitled.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        There not going to extend it lol, the issues is the whole point of a Beta. So that they can fix so that there are no serious problems on actual release.

        Let’s face it, your enjoying the Beta so much that you want it extended lol

        • CoDforever

          I know right. Im playing the shit out of the beta and I want it to be over soon so i can save of the enjoyment for the actual game.

    • RdJokr

      Not really… Preorder guys were able to play since Wednesday, and non-preorder guys just got it now. If I’m going to guess, I’d say they might extend the beta to Tuesday to make it a full week, at least to compensate for the people who get in free. Same goes for Xbox and PC beta.

      • MichiganerE

        Oh! The guys who pre-ordered got the beta a day earlier than the guys who didn’t?! Holy fuck, what a difference! Now THAT’S a reason to pre-order all right! In fact, i’m gonna do the same thing for Ghost 2, AW2 and BO4!

        • Frank Rizzo

          Sounds like you’re too poor to do that

          • MichiganerE

            Yes, i’m too poor to put down money on games that aren’t even finished.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Why the fuck would someone call us poor, if pre-ordering is a widely-known hindrance to gaming? I think more of us should think like you. I am actually boycotting Activision, personally.

          • MichiganerE

            Because hype.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Nah, because of the “this is a CoD website” bullshit excuse. What does everyone expect me to do? Praise all Call of Duty games? It’s not even my favorite franchise, in fact, it is WAY down my list. It’s not even in the top 100.

          • MichiganerE

            I can dig that opinion.

          • Frank Rizzo

            Its Friday night and you two losers are whining about a game you supposedly dont like.

            I would tell you two to get a room, but I think money would be an issue.

          • MichiganerE

            How can I dislike a game I haven’t played?

          • Frank Rizzo

            In two years when a used copy is in your price range, let me know what you think

          • MichiganerE

            How about I let you know when I buy it a few days or a week after it comes out? I mean, clearly, my wallet had $60.00.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Does that Activision dick taste good? Yeah, fuck consumers that are tired of a corporation’s bullshit. Save the excuses for your 6th grade teacher.

          • Frank Rizzo

            Uhhh, they’re not the only game company that does preorders. By your fucked logic, you would have to boycott every game thats coming out until the end of time.

            Didn’t take long for your little feathers to get ruffled, cupcake.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            It’s not because of pre-orders, you failed abortion. It is the overabundance of overpriced DLC, shitty games from false advertising and major disappointments, etc. Then there’s them fucking Crash Bandicoot, Spyro, Tony Hawk, Guitar Hero, etc. It is because they’re a billion dollar corporation, which makes them different from the others. But in case you want to know because you care for some reason, I also would lik to boycott Konami, Capcom, EA, Ubisoft, Microsoft, Gearbox, etc. You should really work on your comprehension skills, because they are lacking.

            Trust me, idiotic trolls like you don’t rustle my Jimmies at all. I entertain myself replying to your dickriding attitude.

          • Frank Rizzo

            It looks like sexual intercourse is boycotting you.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            That’s ironic, considering the fact that you are on Activision’s nuts so frequently. Is it a one night stand, or are you two getting serious?

          • Jenish Katuwal

            Take yourself and just get off the website mate. Its a game… One salty person like you isn’t gonna make a difference to the community. Go play minecraft or some bs.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Another damage controlling child. Go back to class before you’re late. Better hurry, the bell is about to ring.

          • jordanxxxbrooks

            Does EA and Battlefield pay you to just talk shit all day? Sane people play and discuss games they like, talk shit then move on about the games they don’t. You live bringing up ages Jared Fogel yet your maturity doesn’t stop the amount of time you waste bitching. No one here gives two shits about Activision. We play the game, that’s it. The people who run this site may have incentives to dickride but us normal folks don’t. Go get laid you negative sissy.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Don’t tell me what to do. You have no position nor authority to.

            Yeah, complaining is SO immature. Give me a break. It’s an open forum. If it bothers anyone then a mod will let me know. You don’t need to backseat moderate, as it’s none of your business, and I find it hilarious that you don’t think you’re dickriding when your past stupid comments say otherwise. I don’t even like Electronic Arts and I am done with Battlefield.

          • Jenish Katuwal

            Looking at your comments it’s better to just shut up because you are already past going full retard. Don’t embarrass yourself more.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Don’t tell me what to do. I know for a fact that I make better points than you. Now go away.

          • Jenish Katuwal

            How do you believe that you make good points? Your points aren’t accepted here because you’re so goddamn angry and salty. You should just stop extending the replies on this post, you’re embarrassing yourself like I said.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            How am I embarrassing myself? I’m not angry, nor salty. You’re just an idiot wasting my time with shitty “arguments”. Enlighten me on how much you contribute and benefit the CoD community, because you are nothing more special than me or anyone else, nor am I. Grow up.

          • Jenish Katuwal

            You tell me to grow up but yet I can see you on nearly every Charlie Intel post starting arguments or making points that a 5 year old would make. Grow up.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            And I love that you think you have the position to tell me what to do. Grow up.

          • CoDforever

            you didnt pay $5 for the beta you payed $5 for the game smh

          • MichiganerE

            But I never payed anything.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Implying that I don’t like a game I’ve never played. Sorry that I don’t want to dickride a billion dollar corporation. I have actually said countless times that I appreciate the beta and what Treyarch is doing, and have mentioned that I’d have fun playing it.

          • Frank Rizzo

            Activision just announced that your boycott doesn’t mean shit to them.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            And your dickriding does fuck all for them, as well. One more boycott, the better. The thing is, I don’t give a shit about a billion dollar corporation, I care about the consumer, and my decision benefits the consumer.

          • Frank Rizzo

            Actually, the beta benefits the consumer more than anything. If you don’t like the game, you can always cancel the preorder. If you do like it, you can let treyarch know what’s broken and they’ll fix it before release.

            You seem to use the word dickriding often. Are you suppressing some deep seeded urges? I’m sure michiganerE can help you…

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            The beta benefits the consumer. The pre-orders do not. But yes, let’s excuse the practice of pre-orders just because we can cancel them! Doesn’t excuse anything, actually, you’re still supporting a bullshit practice.

            No, but you seem to be in bed with Activision. Maybe you should pre-order some Vaseline?

          • Frank Rizzo

            So…..you’re upset about Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon? Uhhhh, ok dude. Its 2015, maybe its time to let it go.

            You seem to be retarded. Maybe you should preorder a helmet.

            Goodnight sweetie. Hopefully Bruce Jenner inspires you to be your true self. Don’t let being a repressed, poor, transgender get you down 🙂

          • CoDforever

            the brady guy is a complete idiot.almost every games that has a fucking beta requires you to pre order the game first. I remember so many people begging for beta codes for the bf4, titanfall and destiny betas. I think all those betas eventually become free as well.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Yes, because simply listing other reasons for not liking a corporation (especially since it has gone on for nearly 15 yeaes) is SO asinine, yet excusing and damage controlling a company who has shit on the industry is intelligent and logic-fueled. K.

            I don’t pre-order, so your idiotic insult is invalid. Error. Try again.

          • CoDforever

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Doesn’t mean it’s not a hindering practice. I have never pre-ordered. Ever. No one can excuse it without looking asinine.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Exactly. This Brady “guy” pretty much just comes on here with some false sense genius, calls anyone that disagrees with him a kid, accuses anyone that doesn’t bash the game and the company of being a fanboy. Calling someone a fanboy is usually a sign that someone is a fanboy of something else which is why they can relate to the word…No one could honestly be a fanboy of any COD game after COD4, MW2 and MAYBE BO2. If anything now you just have a bunch of bitter mfs who can’t just hate COD and can’t just not play the shitty CODs like normal folks do. It’s like the folks that will go to YT comment section of an artist they do like just to talk about Justin Bieber or someone they DON’T like. Being a fanboy would at least be more beneficial than spending Friday nights bitching about something so trivial. They’re going to play the shit out of BO3 yet complain OR they won’t play it yet still feel the need to come here to bitch about it. In the case of Brady, anyone who may have positive or neutral feeling about the game is automatically a fanboy.

          • iext23

            I haven’t even played more than 75 franchises, that’s a helluva lot.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            You should play more games. It probably isn’t healthy financially, but many hobbies are expensive, so you get what you signed yourself up for. You could even try games that you’d find boring at first glance, like an RPG. I don’t see myself ever playing a genre like RTS.

          • iext23

            Don’t get me wrong, I’ve played a lot of games, A LOT of games. Yeah, I might try other genres every once in awhile, but they usually don’t float my boat. Ill take your advice into consideration next time I’m looking for another game to purchase.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            The fuck it isn’t. It may not be in your top 100(nice hyperbole as usual) franchises but it’s damn sure in your top 5 franchises that you think about daily and write about. You spend a ridiculous amount of time talking about something not in your top 100, I can’t imagine how much time you spend “discussing” franchises you DO enjoy

          • CoDforever

            lmao you just hit the nail in the coffin hahaha good job

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Your logic is beyond fucked. I don’t know why you feel the need to defend a billion dollar corporation like a moron. This site doesn’t exist to brown nose Activision and the developers, it is a community that is fully open to discussion. The parent site is called DISQUS, FFS. I don’t see how negative feedback and honesty about my placing for CoD makes me less of a “fan” in comparison to you damage controlling Neanderthals.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            You really love turning any comment someone has against you into fanboyism or somehow giving a shit about a million dollar company.

            No I’m talking about your and other’s need to constantly just be negative all the fucking time. You say COD isn’t even in your top 100 franchises yet you’re on here constantly feeling the need to discuss it. Stop deflecting and changing the subject. I pre ordered so I could have game at midnight and to get the Juggernog fridge for my man cave. I am not an Activision fan nor am I like you some pedantic prick constantly feeling the need to talk shit all day instead of constructive criticism. You buying the game used isn’t making some huge stance either.

            You’re like those women who hate the Kardashians yet all you search for and comment on is their lives.

            I bet you post 5 comments about COD for every 1 comment about an actual epic game in MGS5. Just being a hater is probably sadder than actual fanboyism. Quit trying to call others fanboys or kids when you’re on here half the fucking working day. Hell you may be a disgruntled former Activision employee. Good games that you may enjoy are out so discuss that you fucking weirdo.

            How about… Quit telling me what to do, and I’ll be critical if I want to, regardless of your stupid comments?

            Oh, get out of here, you corporate sheep. You say you’re not an Activision fan, but you’re paying $200 for a Juggernaut fridge? Now you’re really being stupid. A developer like Sledgehammer Games ruining our experience don’t deserve constructive criticism. Already paying $40 digitally a month after launch and later knowing that my feedback means next to nothing fully entitles me to criticize that piece of shit game. I don’t have the Black Ops 3 beta, so I can only criticize aesthetic things. That’s the difference. There’s nothing wrong with having a negative opinion. Downright disrespecting us as consumers is a valid reason to say that Sledgehammer deserves no more support, in my book. Actually, used games benefit the retailer. The publishers don’t get a cent, and rightfully so.

            Not really, considering the fact that I am actually a fan of the franchise. Just because I don’t put it on a pedestal doesn’t mean that I’m not a fan of it. It’s just simply not my favorite. As if you know why this website was created. I know that it wasn’t made to blindly fanboy over an overrated franchise that receives far too much praise.

            I’m not interested in MGS5, nor Hideo Kojima. I think that franchise is also overrated. I don’t hate. Hate is a strong word. I think that it shouldn’t even exist. I strongly dislike Advanced Warfare. I haven’t played Black Ops 3. I’m fully entitled to criticize Activision. I’ll do whatever the hell I want. You don’t have the authority to tell me what to do, what to comment, or where to go to rant. I have an opinion, so you can get over it. If you want me to stop calling people fanboys and children, then maybe they shouldn’t be acting like fanboys and children.

            …until November

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I will consider buying games used a boycott. I always planned to buy this game to play Zombies with my family. The other modes and great things we get from BO3 like Co-Op Campaign are just the icing on the cake.

          • TheMarkofRay

            Because they don’t know it’s a hindrance, they are just trying to play a game early and get some bonus camos and call signs. Sad maybe but true

        • Eddie Tupy

          BO4? nah im thinking WAW2

          • MichiganerE

            That’s possible.

        • This dude is saltier than the dead sea

          • MichiganerE

            Learn sarcasm my friend.

        • RdJokr

          Dude, you’re being salty as fuck, you know that?

          I get that you’re not a fan of preorders, and you have all the rights in the world to think so. But don’t make it sound like it’s a bad thing everywhere. There are people who put efforts into their games, and they deserve our money. I, and a few other people, believe Treyarch deserves our money, so we’re showing a little support. You don’t agree with me, fine, I’m not forcing you to. Just don’t make it sound like it’s always a bad thing to preorder. It’s not.

          • MichiganerE

            I was never salty to begin, don’t you see that my comment is sarcastic? Also, if i’m going to give my money to a developer, then i’ll give it to them when I know that game is complete.

        • TheMarkofRay

          To play devil’s advocate, technically they gave out two FREE(no pre order required) codes to those that pre ordered, does that make your blood boil even more???

          • MichiganerE

            No, I was never mad to begin with.

      • PsychOutGaming

        It is so dumb, I pre-ordered and I can’t get on during the weekday because I’m busy, and they made it open to everyone! I literally got nothing from pre-ordering!!!

        • jordanxxxbrookes

          You get to pickup the game as soon as it comes out. Also we’ve known the dates for pre order for weeks now so you KNEW you had to work during weekdays so why is that even relevant at all? Are you telling me without beta you wouldn’t have pre ordering Black Ops 3?

          • PsychOutGaming

            that true, I pre-ordered before the beta was announced, I’m just used to having bonuses, I guess

        • RdJokr

          Uhm… how about the game in November, for starters?

          And also, there will be a new preorder bonus to encourage more people to place their orders anyway. It’s not like you’re gonna miss out.

    • TheMarkofRay

      As if the vast majority of COD pre orderers wouldn’t have pre ordered without beta opportunity.

      • MichiganerE

        Right.

    • Swiss Mike

      U poor bro?

      • MichiganerE

        Yes, i’m too poor to put down $5.00 for a game even though I have the money to pay $120.00 for two brand new games.

        • TheMarkofRay

          Right, you’re not poor so you’re just mad on general principle? You had to pre order(and get to play two days sooner) to get beta yet others didn’t have to? You could even cancel pre order and get your $5 back. Although of course you won’t do that lol. Activision gives us plenty of things to be angry about, so I think you can let this slide. It’s not like you had to go through much trouble to pre order, it’s ok.

          • MichiganerE

            How can I feel mad about the beta being open to all after pre-ordering the game when I had never pre-ordered it to begin with?

  • yalo

    So long how would us “non preorder guys” get to play this beta? until it end? someone please answer

    • Siftblade

      Yeah, for the last 2 days.

  • Michael:BULLETCLUB

    So they’ve had servers issues all day and now they open it to everyone?

    • NerdoTheBoyWonder

      that’s one of the reasons for a beta you know, stress test the servers

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Too bad that that’s all a beta is, these days…

  • Based Treyarch FTW

  • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

    Got to commend them for that. Sucks for the ones who pre-ordered, but this beta should have been free from the start.

  • lol people probably got scammed or stole money just to get or play the beta and yet it’s now free XD. but hey I’m all good so….

    • DEMOLITION12

      it always was free…

  • DEMOLITION12

    there are actually people so stupid that they complained about not having a beta code

  • Ryumoau

    wow thats pretty freaking cool of Treyarch to do this. Though i’m worried about how much that server can take because its been having troubles even before they decided to open it to everyone.

    But at least more people will have the opportunity to experience this game. I really think this game will bring alot of people back to CoD because of how fresh and fun it feels. 🙂

    • FATHEAD661

      “Fresh” and “fun”, huh? Idk what’s so fresh about ideas that were implemented elsewhere and now forced into the CoD series. Like “Guardians” from Destiny and the movement from Titanfall. So if you think that’s “fresh and fun” them more power to you. But I on the other hand completely disappointed by 3Arc’s decision to pretty much copy and paste a lot of two other game only to tweak it a bit. I played Ghosts again today after a VERY long vacation from it and I have to say, I was more excited about playing that than I am about looking forward to playing BO3. Just because it’s not gimmicky. But hey, that’s just my opinion.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        So leaning and scripted “destruction” aren’t gimmicky? I have fun on Ghosts around this time, but only because it is a “Ghost”town. During its year, it was a piece of shit, and still pretty much is. Big disappointment.

        Yes, Treyarch is literally carbon copying and pasting abilities and animations from Destiny and Titanfall. That is a fact, and cannot be excused, nor tolerated. But I still think I’d have fun on the game, and they seem to be balancing them so that they’d work well. All developers do this. EA has done this for years with Battlefield and Medal of Honor. Homefront did it. Blacklight Retribution did it.

        • Harshmanic

          Okay so.. Noone knows this game was in development before both those games came out? And that you could literally find that Titanfall did ONLY the mechanics correctly for parkour and boosting. AND it will still do better than Titanfall and Destiny? Why are people complaining about this?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Why are you excusing it? They are carbon copying animations. Treyarch saw the trailers. They have played those games. You didn’t know that all it takes is a year to create these games? Multiplayer is easy to create. Most of the 3 years probably went into overhauling the engine.

      • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

        Ghosts isn’t gimmicky? That is the biggest joke I’ve heard in a while.

      • Ryumoau

        Thanks for that long-winded and pointless reply.

  • spartanelite

    So no code’s for Xbox or what?

  • Ysi

    Personally I’m with yet agianst the idea, with so that everyone can try it, against, that doesn’t consider the beta a preorder bonus anymore

  • Meh.

    • Thomas the Tankswag

      Did you enjoy the beta?

  • getsuga embrace

    All I can say is dick move treyarch.

  • Fly Mann13

    They should extend the beta for ps4 and also make the xbox/pc beta longer as well, especially if the server crashed.

    • LovekillerX

      Here I’m having same thoughts. Just make it longer like 1-2 days and I’ll be fine to test it out more.

  • TheWalkingDon

    I hope they do this for the X-Bone too. I have a friend who refuses to preorder.

    • Yankeephil

      You should get two xbox friend codes with it

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Everyone should refuse to pre-order. It is a bullshit practice.

      • TheMarkofRay

        The biggest bullshit practice is Season Passes and micro DLC especially when Capcom or WB Games is involved. Pre orders just guarantee a copy of the game for $5+ towards the price at worst.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          There are plenty of reasons why pre-orders are a BS practice. All it takes is a simple Google search.

    • Primey_

      Tell them to pre-order on amazon. They send you a code then you can cancel the order and the key is still valid and they don’t charge

  • Bolbi Stroganovsky

    Oh hey, I see Treyarch is already doing some nerfing / tuning to some of the stuff already.

    https://twitter.com/DavidVonderhaar/status/634931647415103488

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      In a fucking beta lmao. That is the definition of “commitment”.

    • Primey_

      It’s a beta. This is to be expected.

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      I hope it s the Razorback, it has to be it!

  • iwantBO3onPS4soBAD

    Too bad I’m too broke to have a PS4.

  • Drasadex

    Check it out people, we can get a Zombies Morg City theme just for playing the Beta!

  • Adavanter Mki

    It just hit me that my frustrations with this game aren’t the game… but my team. That’s the best thing to happen to a CoD in years. I’ve rarely yelled… BS! WTF!? HOW!? 9 times out of 10 it’s legit how I died. That’s a really amazing feat for CoD.

    • CoDforever

      theres definitely gonna be some bs lol but atleast bo3 is playable unlike the last two cods

      • Adavanter Mki

        Hence the 9 times out of 10. Again it’s nice to not have the game beating me instead of the players. I just wish my team was more aware. Read the maps people. If we just pushed all the way through guess where they are now! Behind us! So many blindly stay where they are when clearly a certain area is clear. Flanking imminent!

  • lol unbelievable.. they release it for free and these kids are still bitching ? fucking goofs !

  • eunji

    I don’t like cod3, they sucked up the exo. It’s freakin stupid…

    • MyKogInYourAshe

      Yeah cod3 sucks but bo3 is good

  • destsicate

    I predicted this its the same thing Cod does every year. black ops 2 it was Nuketown 2015 pre-order and get the bonus map ghosts pre order and get a bonus map free fall AW was gorge and now with blogs 3 pre order and get the beta. But everything after about a week to a month the maps come out for free you never need to pre order cod cause alk the things they give us as pre order incentive always becomes available for free at somepoint black ops 3 is going to be the last cod I buy let it die people then they might start looking for better games to bring out rather than screwing us over and over again each year

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      So because the pre order bonuses end up being just pawns to get you to pre order this will be the last COD you play? If anything you could argue the pre order bonuses get you these things sooner at least. If you’re pre ordering just for bonuses as opposed to just to be one of the first to play at 12:01am or the callsign/camos then you’re pre ordering for the wrong reason.

    • CoDforever

      AW gorge never become free and besides your pre ording for the game, not paying $5 for the beta. Besides your going to buy the game for full price even if u didnt pre order anyway

  • Guest
  • Lance

    this makes sense nebcuase lobbys at first have like 3 v 6 and now with that youll get some full games
    but i dont find it fair that all of the sudden ive been waiting for 6 months and now this happens i couldve of just bought this later on

  • Guywithbrains

    Well it is good everyone gets to play this game but it is a little bit odd that Activision said it will be exclusive only for people who pre-ordered this game. Now what is our actual “exclusive pre-order bonus” if not this?

  • I don’t understand why people are so mad. I pre-order stuff all the time and cancel if I don’t want the game. If people are mad that they had to pre-order (aka reserve) their copy, just cancel it. I just fail to see the big deal. It’s great that they opened it up to everyone, a bigger player base will test the servers / network better.

    • TheMarkofRay

      I wondered the same exact thing. I mean it’s a pretty nice incentive to pre order but treyarch’s history of good games and me not really playing Ghosts or AW is the main reason I pre ordered. Activision’s Season Pass and micro dlc is really only thing I get a little upset about. This seems like people sort of reaching to be negative. I mean we can cancel the preorder, play new COD early and most importantly we’ll have an idea if this game worthy of a purchase. It almost seems like instead of this being early chance to test and play, it’s really just an early chance for us to complain about things. Speaking of which, it’s pretty egregious how they are promoting Season Pass so early now, and you just know they reduced overall amt of weapons so they could add those later. MicroDLC is the true culprit.

  • Thomas the TankSwag

    For people struggling to kill Nomad when he uses rejack:

    Put a thermite in your class, when you see the smoke coming out of his body, throw the thermite in. When he respawns, he’ll die in before he can shoot anybody and you get an easy kill.

    • ApoX

      Lol!

    • DEMOLITION12

      i hope they take this shit out… does nobody else realise that they brought last stand back??

      • Guywithbrains

        Today I countered a player using rejack ability and I had no problem killing him. When green smoke appeared I just sprayed and prayed to that smoke and I got two free kills (killed him and after green smoke killed him again).

        One thing I noticed is that I get lots of scorestreaks in this game. I had problems in Black Ops 2 but so far I have had no problems at all in terms of fun.

        • Thomas the TankSwag

          I dont see rejack as much as a problem either, most of the time its 50/50 as to who gets a kill after rejack, but since ive been using thermites i haven’t been killed once by anyone who just used rejack

  • D3ADWANTED 25

    Hope Xbox one gets it to

  • RobinEinarsson

    Does this mean the BETA will be open for all on PC too after a couple of days of running?

  • jordanxxxbrookes

    This really shows how spoiled, petty and ridiculous a lot of you are…You’re actually upset others aka casual PS4 players get to play this beta just because YOU pre ordered it? As if you wouldn’t have pre ordered it no matter what especially when the Juggernog edition was mentioned. Any one on this site probably pre orders EVERY COD game anyway, so why the hell are you trying to make beta some pardon my pun ELITE group of select few? COD guys are more selfish than I thought. You don’t what last gen guys to get to play, you didn’t want non pre order guys to get that AW map and now this. Quit pretending, you know damn well you pre order so you can grab the game(and any collector editions) at midnight on release night and kick off the new COD game. Any pre order bonsues are just that bonuses.

  • Jaffa

    Do I need to buy PSplus to play online in this beta?

    • Laddie

      Im playing the beta fine without a ps plus membership

      • You have to be joking right? You can’t play online without Playstation plus…

        • Laddie

          Nope, wasn’t joking… When the beta began my ps plus membership had ran out without me relizing, so I hopped on the bo3 and played through multiplayer just fine. Im guessing its because its not the full version obviously. I even tried it on Destiny and although you can’t play strikes without ps+, I was walking through the tower and playing story missions with no problems.

  • Mick

    Should I even bother pre-ordering for the xbox 1 if they did this for ps4? I assume Treyarch will so the same thing for the xbox 1.

  • Ouch. I’m so glad I didn’t pre-order.

    • the big dirtty

      yea cuz you dodged a huge burn right lol

    • Adavanter Mki

      Every pre-order can be canceled for no fee. Why do people make this out to be such a thing? lol.

    • I am, I played it longer than you 😛

  • Guywithbrains
  • imBATMAN

    I wonder if xbox one will get this deal too

  • Mikey9835

    After playing the beta for a couple of days, I am ready to give my opinion on the game so far. Strap in, this is a big read…
    First off TTK seems fine to me, it seems different now than when the beta first launched.
    Spawns are…. average, to be expected in a beta. Most of the time I spawned a good distance away from the enemy, although occasionally I did get spawn trapped on the smaller maps (Combine seems especially frequent)
    Ive only played with a handful of the specialists since it takes quite a while to rank up in this game IMO. But I gotta say so far Ruin is my favourite. His gravity spikes are so fun to use, and very satisfying to get a multikill. (And fun is something that EVERY game should have)
    However the tempest DOES need a nerf. Its funny the first couple times with the death animation, but after a while it gets annoying.
    Scorestreaks are better than ever (Even though I suck and would be lucky if I got a UAV) Although almost all the returning ones from BO2 have changed significantly.
    For example: The UAV lasts for about 10 seconds although I THINK they can stack up since the announcer keeps saying theirs multiple UAVs in the sky.
    The H.A.T.R takes rougly three rockets to bring down.
    And the HCXD is a lot of fun.
    Finally the new mobility system is superb, and is definitely the best part of the game.
    It is NOTHING like AWs system, it is exactly like how treyarch said it would be: Guns up. Wall running works fine too.
    The biggest problem with AW was how difficult it was shooting an enemy with a double jump. But the thrust jump is a lot easier to track someone.
    Honestly the only negative things I can say is that The flashbangs are very powerful and will stop you dead in your tracks. Matchmaking could be improved, and I wish they would replace ante up with hardline.
    And that’s it. This will probably be the COD I buy in a while since Ghosts 2 and AW 2 don’t appeal to me at all, but that’s just my opinion.
    Overall I’m glad treyarch did this, and I look forward to November, I guess I will have to rely on Mario maker to keep me occupied until then 🙂
    TL;DR: This game is good.

    • Tricky VIk

      “Nice review.”
      +1

  • I knew it was going to happen.

  • Jay Evan

    Remember the Storm PSR from Bo2? Well, i have the feeling that’s coming back to either the 9th specialist or dlc.

  • JT

    Who puts the entire amount into a pre-order anyways? You can put $1 down and still get the added bonuses as someone who pays for the full retail price of a game that is unreleased 4-5 months early?

  • Danny

    Why is it lagging so much

  • Danny

    It was good in the morning then at 12 western Time it just started lagging

  • Danny

    U should give ps4 two more days because of the lag

  • Danny

    Like really fix the lag lol I wanna reach level 40

  • Mastergunner01

    Why was the free no-preorder beta removed. I really want to have the beta without having to preorder the game

  • Mastergunner01

    the whole idea of a beta is to let people test out a game so they can decide if they want it or not. Treyarch should put the free beta back up so people can have a look at the game’s gameplay before they decide that they want the game and preorder it

  • Andrew Park

    In principle, I am definitely supportive of a beta being open to everyone for free. However, the fucked up thing is that they announced that it would be open to everyone AFTER many people (myself included) paid $100 for the preorder, the MAIN reason being that I would be able to play the beta before many others. Had I known, I definitely WOULDN’T have preordered BO3; rather, I simply would have downloaded the beta for free and based on the merits of the beta, decide to purchase the game the day it came out. There is absolutely no purpose in preordering a digital copy of a game, so the reason many did was most definitely to play the beta months in advance of the launch.

    Anyway, some of the comments below suggest that you can cancel the preorder so I’m not really pissed, as long as that is indeed true.

    Just out of curiosity for those who paid for the preorder: how many did so solely so that you could play the beta early before the launch? I’m guessing it’s going to be about 99.99% of the people.

    On the flip side, I do think that any beta should be free to all so as to increase as much as possible the number of “testers” to play the game and give feedback to Treyarch. However, they should have announced before anybody paid for anything that they would open up the beta to everyone free of charge. The fact that they didn’t just reinforces the fact that developers would do anything to make a buck.

    I mean honestly, there can’t be a single person who preorders a digital copy of a game these days. It’s not like game might not be in stock when it launches, and it’s not like people who preorder get some kind of discount off the game in the long run.

  • Grant

    I am confused on all of this honestly. If i preorder now can i play the beta?

    Or is it to late. The way i understood as long as you preorder you can play the beta until the game comes out with a beta code.
