    I am afraid I won’t make it to level 40 until the beta has ended. So far I have reached level 33.

  • CoDforever

    facepalm at the people complaining about server issues on a BETA.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      More ignorance. If there’s no complaining, then the developers wouldn’t know about it. We are in the beta to test the game, not just play it early.

      • HenryDF

        Yes, and yet people are complaining with the expectation for this to be a fully functional experience, rather than with the intention of whatever issue they complain about being fixed for launch and acknowledging that they are only playing a beta.

    • LovekillerX

      Treyarch is infamous from their launch. THAT is why we complain and I’m sure we will see you laughing last.

      • ScOott

        You don’t tell problems on here lol.. You go to the website, charlie Intel linked it for you in one of the posts.. Just enjoy the beta man and report any problem you get on the website so they can fix them ..

        • LovekillerX

          I share my experience to see if anyone else have same experiences. Also I’m sure people have already sent feedback to Treyarch so they can fix things.

          It is difficult to enjoy the beta if the beta has matchmaking problems (fixed but may occur again) and problems with hit detection and lag.

          • ScOott

            You admited in your coment above you was moaning, and why shouldn’t you complain so they can fix things.. I was just informing you that your moaning in the wrong place for them to hear you.. We all know what problems are happening, just enjoy or don’t play *shrugs shoulders*

          • LovekillerX

            I can say my concerns here too? So did people when AW came. Don’t tell me they didn’t have a place to send feedback because they did. Now it is forbidden to share concerns? Okay… I won’t even bother to comment about this subject anymore. I’ll share my concerns from now on just like earlier.

          • ScOott

            A.W didn’t have a beta, this that your playing now is not a finished game.. Lighten up, I’m not telling you to go away, jeeze..

          • Guywithbrains

            I think no one is expecting it to be perfect but sharing concerns and overall opinion here is a good idea in addition to letting Treyarch know. For example it is good idea to ask if others have lag so we get to know if lag occurs because of servers or own internet.

            My overall experience is good but for example sniping is not worthy tactic anymore. Especially because of too big flinch. Which is a shame.

            Nerf Razorback, buff (just slightly) sniping, make matchmaking better and fix spawns (the worst spawn trapping ever is happening right now in maps like Combine and Hunted). Not surprising because now SBMM is pretty much gone so spawn trapping is now (again…) going to be used a lot in objective modes. If these things are fixed this might be almost flawless if not flawless game for me at least.

      • Sol Malus

        If MP has a shit ton of problems at launch then I’ll play the two zombie maps or the campaign until it’s fixed.

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      Some are already acting like it’s the end of the world

    • Primey_

      Sadly some people think beta means fully working demo

      • Guywithbrains

        An excuse “it’s just a beta” is already used when Destiny beta was live. Everyone thought that there were not going to be repetitive missions but after all I was right.

        After launch people say “don’t whine they’ll patch it”. An excuse after an excuse.

        ^ Not saying this beta should be perfect and it isn’t but it is still fun and playable for me.

        • CoDforever

          technical issues and balancing are not the same as drastically changing level design 2 months before launch.

          • Guywithbrains

            Just trying to say that Treyarch is known of the worst launch compared to other developers’ Call of Duty titles. Also hit detection is the worst in Black Ops series. So I remain skeptical until I see with my own eyes that lag is minimal.

          • KristoDude

            The hit detection is almost perfect in this game, but if you have 100+ ping you are screwed

          • Elikenui

            I am screwed…

          • djml9

            I can joyfully say that Bo3 hit detection is fantastic. That was my biggest fear. As far as im concernd now, the game is perfect.

    • Jessica Because

      Theyre suppose to complain. They need feedback.

    • Elikenui

      Yeah, wait till the release to complain about the server issues.

      • CoDforever

        maybe with the beta they can now fix it for launch

  • CoDforever

    Anyone find this funny

    Battlefield beta: “dw its just a beta everything will be perfect when the game comes out”

    Bo3 beta: “OMG fuck this shit game is unbalanced so many OP weapons and server issues fuck this cancelling my pre order cod is dead”

    • RdJokr

      And the funny part is, BF4 is so broken, it needed a second beta.

      • Thomas the TankSwag

        I dont think bf4s beta has finished yet

    • ScOott

      Some of these guys are just people that are pissed off that Treyarch get more love then the developers they like.. So they make more of an effort to hate it.. You will see them crying a lot this year I feel..

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        The game seems too fun to do that. I hope to see less complaints about AW. If all the community is complaining about are connections, then they have done well.

    • LovekillerX

      Battefield Hardline beta was actually stable if you compare it to Battlefield 4. I think that Treyarch has same problems as Black Ops 2 did and if you think how infamous Black Ops 2 was back at it’s launch… you might understand our concern.

      I just hope they REALLY fix hit detection and lag. Treyarch is known from it’s bad netcode. Why they just don’t follow Infinity Ward’s steps? They know for sure how to do spot on netcode.

      • CoDforever

        yeah they should totally follow infinitywards footsteps and make a terrible boring game

        lol jk but infinitywards hit detection and connections was so good because there was no theatre mode and general social sharing features that treyarch have

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Apple’s and oranges. DICE works with a hundred percent dedicated servers. CoD is mostly Peer-to-Peer.

      • spartanelite

        Bo3 servers are dedicated

        • Juses

          I got a host migration…

          • Guywithbrains

            They are using other servers when dedicated servers are not available. For example yesterday dedicated servers got shut down for a while and that is why no one couldn’t find a game.

          • spartanelite

            Wel I geese itz a micks uf booth

  • CoDforever

    Anyone tell me how many people on the beta right now?

  • LookOverThere

    Wow only one rank from getting the combat axe. Why you do dis treyarch? 🙁

  • LovekillerX

    Although beta has it’s own flaws I honestly think that Treyarch is doing fantastic job when it comes to delivering updates like new game modes or raising a level cap. I can give REAL applause for that.

    • HenryDF

      They’re simply unlocking content that was already in the game when it comes to raising the level cap. It’s hardly an impressive update. I paid to play the beta, I’d expect a full experience rather than immediately having my level capped. Raising the cap isn’t something to applaud.

  • Drasadex

    ..

    • imBATMAN

      so those who did not preorder can still play it?

      • Siftblade

        Yeah, CI already posted this article.

        • imBATMAN

          i’ll look for it i didn’t see that

      • Drasadex

        Correct.

        • imBATMAN

          cool

  • PS4 is da best Xbox sucks

    I can’t believe people are taking this beta so seriously by desperately trying to rank up and protect their worthless stats that are going to be wiped anyway. The amount of spawn trapping and camping is embarrassing and it’s gonna be even worse on release when it matters so dearly to these people. Worst community ever

    • The7Reaper

      I “desperately” leveled up as fast as I could because I wanted to test out all specialists but I couldn’t care less about stats

    • shadowguy14

      Agreed.

    • Jessica Because

      “Worst community ever”, says PS4 is da best Xbox sucks.

  • rw

    another shit game for this year, pls zombies we trust in u

    • Joshwoocool

      the bait is real

    • Drasadex

      yeah okay

    • Bolbi Stroganovsky

      You know it’s a beta right? LOL

    • Siftblade

      IKR this game is so shit, it only has 4 maps. What a ripoff.

      • Bolbi Stroganovsky

        I DEMAND A REFUND

    • Stefan Lang

      “Oooh look at me I want attention”

  • Sweet! I was already capped out, now to keep going..

  • Choppabro2psn

    This is the most in consistent beta ever!!! It’s so funny. It’s okay though.

    • djml9

      One thing ive noticed is that the distance and placement of shots makes a HUGE difference this time around.

    • Thomas the TankSwag

      Most People camp because the razorback (and other weapons) kill times are too quick, then other people camp, like me, because other people are camping and the kill time makes it near impossible to kill a well positioned camper. If they Increase the Time to kill, it will decrease the amount of campers.

  • goose

    i feel like the novelty is already up for me. this beta does not represent the full game I get it, but it does represent 80% of it. More maps, more guns and zombies yeah but for real people play COD through the year how does something like this with such minimal changes get so much attention?

    • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

      Minimal changes? Are you blind? These changes are a lot more meaningful game play wise then any other CODs innovations. All the changes they are brining to BO3 haven’t even been revealed yet so hold your horses.

      Since when do people judge the entire game from a Beta? lol that’s just the most retarded thing I’ve ever heard of.

  • Jörgen Reynaert

    allready level 40 like spectre

  • Benji

    (Just so you know, I don’t want any hate or arguing for what I’m about to post) But does anyone else think they’re trying a new matchmaking system today? Last few days i’ve been having a lot of fun, mix of games good and bad, some really high kills, and some low (Standard cod thing) but today everything just seemed to get harder? I’m not saying SBMM, but it feels like I’m playing everyone at my level. Do you think its a test for league play match making, or are pubs all going to be like this? Just a question guys, I don’t want to piss anyone off, we’ve all heard enough about SBMM in the past year so if you guys see this and it pisses you off just ignore me 🙂

    • djml9

      I think maybe so. I noticed i got put into lobbies with lots of low levels when im like 38, and that definitely reflects my recent performace.

      • Siftblade

        Probably because the beta became free for everyone, so new players are showing up.

  • skeetshootin

    This game sucks, more fantasy shit, fake guns…..what is happening to cod? Next thing you know grenades will become pokemon balls.

    • Greasy Neckbeard

      “its futuristic so it must suck!1!!!111”

      • skeetshootin

        Dont get me wrong i like modern, just keep it realistic.

    • lunator100hd .

      Its a game , who cares if its realistic or not ? As far as it is fun and ballanced its ok

      • skeetshootin

        I care!

  • spartanelite

    I mean I have a suggestion I think it would be a good idea to add a gender counter part to all the specialist,I think that would be cool

  • shadowguy14

    God you people need to get a life! Level 40? Really? For a Beta? You do realize it’s all going to be deleted right? *sigh*

    • Yankeephil

      It’s the fact that they want to try everything, level 40 gave you the last specialist with level 49 it gives you the highest kill streak

  • Thomas the TankSwag

    How can i camp effectively in Black ops3? Like what should i put in my class and what game mode should i play.

  • lunator100hd .

    When is the beta gonna be over(exact time pls)?

  • Ričards Jansons

    Cant you put more levels? Im 40 already

    • David Vonderhaar

      Here you go son

  • Diego Diniz

    What if TALON Scorestreak shoot Missels too? Like Gryphon on Ghosts or Assault Drone on AW…

  • Gaming HD

    You guys should really put the rest of the levels out so we can try all the stuff

    • Some weapons are classified, so it doesn’t even matter if you level up.

  • Diego Diniz

    LAG IS HUDGE!!!
    The Game is UNPLAYABLE right now…

  • LovekillerX

    Sad to see they don’t make the beta last longer although beta had some issues (and still has). 🙁

    • Michael:BULLETCLUB

      Hopefully all those issues are fixed for us Xbox guys. Shame you guys had some problems, they should extend it.

  • Imventing

    damn 49, they better have that for xbox from the jump

    • Yankeephil

      All the updates will most likely fall in the same time frame that PSN had

      • Imventing

        I’ll be mad if they do that.. i move in at school after 2 days into the beta -.-

        • JDahn

          They will do the same thing they did with PS4.

        • Aidan

          I start on Tuesday…one day before beta…

  • Gaming HD

    Come on there barley any people that got to play because they have to download it keep it going till Sept 1 so everybody gets a chance to level up and play come on

    • Imventing

      the levels don’t even carry over.. what is the point.

    • The beta has been going on for a week now. You had the chance to play already, so stop being greedy asf.

  • Gaming HD

    Come on let everybody have a chance to level up and download it till Sept 1 come on

  • Gaming HD

    Because people want to play and it’s awesome let people play who cares if it doesn’t carry over its still fun to level up and Gian stuff like really

  • Baldmanz_RAGE

    All of a sudden on Sunday I can’t get in a match that isn’t full of lag!! Anyone else having issues today?

  • phoenix6142

    What happens when the BETA ends? I’m not sure. Does the download become unavailable or does the BETA Gameplay stop?

    • Aidan

      You won’t be able to play. You’ll have to uninstall.

      • phoenix6142

        That’s a bummer. I was hoping to use BETA until the Final Version was released. I don’t think it would be worth the download Quota for most people for such a short BETA.

  • Aidan

    I am extremely unhappy with the Unlock system. You shouldn’t have to unlock something twice. Once you level up, you should earn that item, Not buy it.

  • Adam

    Bring on the Xbox One beta. 😉
