  • Eh. They never fixed the freezing in the beta and then they invite everybody on that doesnt have a code. So we get lag and freezing now?

  • MichiganerE

    To anyone who pre-ordered for the beta for any of the three platforms, you’re a sucker.

    • Siftblade

      Not if you’re buying the game anyways.

      • MichiganerE

        You’re still a sucker considering how cancerous pre-ordering is.

        • Siftblade

          Oh yeah? How cancerous is it? If I know for a fact I’m buying the game anyways, I might as well preorder and get all the bonus content. I don’t really care about “revolting against the companies” or whatever, I’m just getting the most out of my money.

          • MichiganerE

            Because you’re putting money down on a product that isn’t finished yet. Not only that, but when you pre-order, you’re giving money early to that company which leads to them getting lazy and releasing the game in bad shape. In fact, just look at all of the broken games from last year, you can thank pre-ordering for that. Besides, it’s not like games sell out with no copies left anymore. Even if this does happen, you still have others ways of getting the game (digital gaming is a good example).

            Also, about the bonus content, why does it matter at all when it’ll just come out available to buy later on?

            You don’t have to revolt against companies, but you should at least know what you’re getting into with a new game and be bit cautious.

          • Siftblade

            Most of the BO3 work is done. Look at the beta, almost everything was unlocked. We were missing a few guns and the rest of the maps, most of which probably just need to be polished. And just so you know, I don’t preorder games way before they launch (which is what causes this lazy development). Preordering a few months before the game comes out is fine imo. You get the bonus content, and the game is pretty much done already. Besides, I’m just one preorder. The average consumer doesn’t care about the consequences of preordering. Hell, even after this whole thing with broken games started, preorder numbers are still going up. What difference am I going to make? Nothing. Preordering isn’t going to suddenly stop any time soon, might as well take the rewards. And yes, for COD the bonuses are irrelevant, but for other games they’re not.

            For example, look at Mortal Kombat X. You could preorder and get Goro for free (I preordered a few days before launch), or you could say “Screw you! I’m not going to preorder because of on-disc content!” Is that going to change the fact that Goro is locked out? No, he’s still locked out. So now I have Goro in MK X for FREE, whereas the real suckers are the ones who said “No, I’m not going to preorder” and paid $5 for Goro.

          • MichiganerE

            But you don’t know that it’ll work on launch. Remember the BF4 beta? It worked great while the game launched in a shit-state.

          • Siftblade

            As long as I can play Zombies, I don’t really care. That’s 80% of the reason I’m buying BO3. The MP is pretty good imo too though.

          • MichiganerE

            Just because you have Zombies to play if the MP doesn’t work, doesn’t mean that you should accept that outcome for the game. When you buy a game, it should work 100% on launch considering that’s when you buy it. It if you don’t buy it on launch and instead, days afterwards, it should work. We shouldn’t have to wait for updates and patches, that game should work right away. Besides, what if Zombies doesn’t work? What then? Will you accept that?

          • Siftblade

            COD has been launching without the issues that BF4 had for years upon years. I don’t think this will be the first time that we won’t be able to play it at all at launch, especially since there was a beta to test the platforms. However, hypothetically, if the game doesn’t work at all, it still wouldn’t make much of a difference on my choice to preorder. There’s no difference between preordering a game, or not preordering and waiting for the launch to be fixed before you buy it. Both players will end up playing the game at the same time. Difference is, one won’t have all the content that the other does when the game finally does work. To me, (and this is just how I see it), if a game can’t even run at all during the launch, then it’s basically like the game is just being delayed. It makes no difference, I can wait a few days/weeks.

          • MichiganerE

            That may be true, but it doesn’t mean that CoD will continue to keep working fine on launch forever. Up until BF4, each game from the BF series worked fine on launch, but then, BF4 launched horribly, end at the time, the series was 11 years old. Also, it doesn’t matter if the game has a beta, BF4 had one and the game still launched horribly. The same can happen with BO3.

            Why would you accept a game not working on launch? When you buy a game, don’t you want it to work. Patience has nothing to do with a situation such as that. Having an attitude such as that is lazy.

          • Siftblade

            When I buy a game, I expect it to work, sure. But if it doesn’t work, it’s not a big deal. Like I said, it’s like it just got delayed. When GTA Online launched, and the servers we’re broken and nobody could play, I was of course disappointed. Nobody likes not being able to play something they’ve been anticipating, it sucks. GTA Online was basically delayed by one month, and it sucks, but it has nothing to do if whether you preordered it or not. You could have waited one month and bought the game after GTA: Online started working, but at that point you’re in the same boat as the guy who preordered.

          • MichiganerE

            But not pre-ordering would lead to there being less of a chance of that situation happening. In fact, RockStar knew just how successful GTA V was from preorders, and instead of putting that money towards making sure Online would work, they got lazy and it released broken. In fact, they should of delayed it until it was stable.

          • Siftblade

            Delaying it would have been worse. At least with the game out, you could play the SP until the MP started working. Delaying it would have made both unplayable. That’s why I originally said that if MP is broken, I’d just play Zombies. If the game is completely unrunnable, then it’s basically been delayed.

            Also, maybe if millions of people didn’t preorder, it could have been preventable. But I’m not millions of people, I’m just one guy. Might as well reap the rewards if it’s in my best interest (my original point).

            Anyways, this has gotten way out of hand. I’ve already expressed how I feel about it, as have you, so I think it’s time to end this conversation (at least on my part). Feel free to keep replying if you’d like. I’ll read them but I probably won’t reply. This has to end sometime, and we could probably keep going forever if we wanted to, lol. Have a good one.

          • MichiganerE

            Goodbye to you as well.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            You’re still here discussing a game you didn’t pre order and trying to convince people to join or crusade against pre ordering as well as trying to force people who are ok with the game to not be ok with it?

            I mean I get it man Activision is sort of shitty and even I tend to avoid EA and Capcom products but there are far more noble causes my man. You’re not going to convince enough people to not pre order for the overall practice to change. You waiting until release instead of pre ordering is still giving Activision, Walmart or some greedy Gamestop your money.

            Being embittered and looking to convert people to negativity isn’t any better than if someone was a fanboy. Pre ordering is about getting the game asap to rank up for you as well as bonuses. For company they can have an idea of sells they will get and promote game months before it’s released. We don’t have to like to process but stop linking doom and disaster to pre ordering BO3. We are all interested in COD so that’s why people pre order and discuss it. This anti establishment stance is ok just don’t be a door to door salesman or evangelist about it. Not that serious for most.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            *sales

          • MichiganerE

            All i’m doing is informing people of the consequences of pre-ordering.

            I’m not gonna but it at release, i’m gonna wait and see what people think of it. Sure, i’ll pick it up at some point to add to my CoD collection, I just don’t know when

            When talking truthful about a topic such as this, you can’t expect me to play nice and sugarcoat what I’m saying. What I do is talk brutal honesty.

          • Why are you constantly complaining about “preordering” it’s not for you to dictate whether someone else is to pre-order a game or not?
            There are reasons to why they personally want to pre-order, and it’s not your money to state otherwise.

            Your own personal opinion will not affect the outcome of there pre-order status if they have done so or not.

            For me, I have not noticed any issues with a COD game launch throughout the last two titles whatsoever, I have no clue what you’re talking about and I played AW on launch.

            No way would “not pre-ordering” affect game stability on launch, as why would it? “Oh people aren’t preordering, fuck that must mean the game is broken before it’s even been played”.

            You’re “hating” on something which you’re still going to “eventually” buy, isn’t that kind of contradicting your point?

            There are no consequences associated with pre-ordering, just your personal hate towards doing so and your retarded opinions on doing so.

            None of us expected you to “play nice and sugarcoat” or say anything at all, no one even expected or asked for your opinion regarding it. You just commented and started writing a book just as I am now.

          • MichiganerE

            Because I don’t want to see gamers waste their money.

            What others reasons could people have to pre-order?

            I suppose that’s true.

            That doesn’t mean that BO3 will work properly on launch as well.

            If that’s so true, then what would be the cause of broken games?

            Yes, I will eventually, but only when I know that it works right like it’s supposed to.

            Everything has consequences.

            Good to hear.

          • Yet again, it’s not your place to dictate whether what someone spends with their own money.

          • MichiganerE

            But I never said it was.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            How is it wasting money? People pre order the games they want. The money goes towards purchase price of the game. Micro DLC and Season Passes are a MUCH better thing where your arguments and crusade is applicable because that is literally putting things behind paywall.

            I’d be with you on that. We pre order games because we want them on launch and a game like COD maybe you don’t wanna risk having to call around to find a copy, plus maybe you want a cool camo and collectors edition. The biggest issues COD games have on launch are connection based for the most part.

            Again if you’re talking about micro dlc or even why that money isn’t going towards fully dedicated servers then I am with you. This whole anti pre ordering thing is just silly and isn’t affecting whether games are finished or not at launch. If anything it would be more pressure to have good launch if you know a record number of people are pre ordering your game on top of general public who pick it up after like Black Friday and Xmas.

          • MichiganerE

            Sure, why not.

          • Raptor

            Want some brutal honesty? Your channel sucks.

          • MichiganerE

            Good to hear.

          • Marbles

            Where the fuck are you pulling this information from. Your ass? Developers dont release broken games “because preorders make them lazy”. If they did every game would be released broken. Developers want to deliver to their fans so that they continue buying their games. Pre orders let a devolper know that they can stick more money into a game withiut fear of lost investment. Developers want their game to work on launch day just as badly as consumers do. A game is a developer’s pride and joy. Its something they have stuck a significant portion of their life and career into. The quality of their game directly impacts the future of their career so they try their best to make everything work.

          • MichiganerE

            Keep thinking that. Anyways, this conversation has been done with I don’t plan to continue to kick a dead horse.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            “doesn’t mean that CoD will continue to keep working fine on launch forever”

            So now you’re going on about future HYPOTHETICAL bad launches? You need to email some devs or follow your true calling of taking down establishments my man. This is a COD info site comment section, this place may be a little beneath the convo you want to have. Hell you may better as a diplomat or president of a job union.

          • MichiganerE

            My comment focuses on the community, not on the developers. I’m only trying to warn gamers of the possible outcome of BO3.

          • Billyjoe

            No game has ever worked 100% on launch.

          • MichiganerE

            Games did on previous gens. Not only that, but there was a where the games we bought didn’t take several more months to finally work. Anyways, this conversation is done.

          • Matt

            Even if it doesn’t play out well at launch, Treyarch will always update the game to fix all of the issues, it’s their job to do so. They have had a history of sketchy launches right? However, their games have always turned out find just a month or two into their lifecycle

          • MichiganerE

            But why should we have to wait weeks, if not, months for the game to work correctly after buying? When you buy a game on launch, you want it to work, right? I mean, why did you buy the game on launch for if it’s not going to work 100%?

          • Matt

            No matter what game you buy, you can’t be sure it will work 100% at launch, it just won’t ever happen. We always have to wait at least a few day for the updates to fix any issue that we may address. Plus, with the beta for bo3, there really should be no excuse for not having an exceptionally good launch this year because we actually got the opportunity to give our feedback months before launch. If you want to buy a game that has no issues whatsoever, you’re going to have to wait at least a week or two for that.

          • MichiganerE

            Back in the day, you don’t have to wait for a game work after buying it, so why should the situation be any different now? If a developer sees that a game isn’t ready to be launch, then they should delay it.

          • Dr. Salim

            But they should want to launch the game on the intended date.

          • MichiganerE

            Not if that game won’t work properly. In fact, they shouldn’t even give the game a release date at all if it’s not stable enough to launch yet.

          • Matt

            The only reason devs delay release dates is because there are issues that make the game a very unpleasant experience. When a CoD title launches, the only real issues that we actually care about are connection and weapon balancing, and those alone should not and cannot justify a delayed release date.

          • MichiganerE

            But a small delay can.

          • Dr. Salim

            Have you heard what happened with [email protected]? that game was far from finished with about 3 months of time left until the launch. 3arc put countless hours during that time to make sure that they don’t miss that deadline.

          • MichiganerE

            Then they should of delayed it.

          • Dr. Salim

            1. That game had a beta which speed up the process and made launch day much smoother.
            2. For a game as big as CoD, delaying would have been bad for business.

          • MichiganerE

            1. But it could of been better

            2. If the game is seen working, then more people will want it, resulting in more sales

          • Dr. Salim

            CoD was not the same as it was back then. There was no huge pre order bonus or any free maps which attracted the community to buy it.

          • MichiganerE

            Obviously.

          • Matt

            Yes, but realistically, no dev would ever do so just for connection issues and balancing when they could easily be fixed via update on release day or even a day after. Like I said, those kinds of small issues don’t justify any sort of delay.

          • ScOott

            The gaming industry has got massive compared to back in the day, a delay would cost a lot of people alot of money.. It’s all business.. Pre ordering isn’t going to effect me or you, if the game is going to be broken it has nothing to do with pre ordering, it’s more complex than that ..

          • MichiganerE

            Then what else would cause that game to be broken?

          • ScOott

            The time frame for one, most have strick deadlines they have to stick to, if they don’t they could risk upsetting there investors.. And for some it could just be neglect, a mistake that didn’t get looked at.. A pre order is just used as an indication of how sales might go, they don’t reach so many pre orders then all of a sudden think, fuck it we got enough pre orders now let’s drop the work load.. As for the consumer its in there best intrest to pre order to get the bonus stuff..

          • MichiganerE

            Yeah, right.

          • ScOott

            *yeah, you’re right.

          • Jimbob

            Are you forgetting all the bugs and glitches that came with games “back in the day”? No game has ever been nor will ever be perfect.Launch day is a learning day just as every day of a games life cycle.

          • MichiganerE

            So that’s an excuse to having to wait several months for a game to work? This didn’t happen back in the day, not even a few years back. But hey, if you want to pay for an incomplete product only for it not to work and accept that, then fine. Anyways, this conversation is done with.

          • FazalGaming

            You can’t expect everything to be fine on launch day. I would prefer if Treyarch spent the time getting ready for the game than the launch day cos whats better a shit launch day and great game or decent game and good launch.

          • MichiganerE

            Is that why, up until the early 2000s, games would always be fine on launch?

          • CrazyWolf

            Hey, MichiganerE, would you please shut the fuck up!? If you came here only to argue with people then you might as well go cry to your momma. In case you did not figure things out, nobody cares about your philosophy. You play your games and the others play their games. They spend their money the way they want and so do you. If you have a problem with that, or if you want people to spend their own money in a specific way, a.k.a. the way you want, well… I think you have some serious issues. Just do yourself a favor and leave.

          • MichiganerE

            Calm down, buddy. For your information, I didn’t come here to argue like you think, I only came here to be truthful. Yes, people can play their all they want, but they should be aware of what they’re buying. I don’t have any issues, it’s just that I care about the industry and gamers such as yourself and many others. I don’t want gamers to fall into traps from publishers and developers, and certainly don’t wanna see the industry fall down into a darker place than it’s already in. Also, I hate to break to you, but i’m staying – freedom of speech, my friend. Not everyone on here is going to fall for the CoD hype and be happy-happy go-go about everything.

          • CrazyWolf

            You’re basically insulting us, pal. Need I remind you that you called those who pre-order games “suckers”? I can even copy-paste and quote you on the matter. Also, if you think that I don’t understand you, you’re wrong. I’m against pre-ordering games more than you think! The publishers- I don’t give a rat’s ass about them. The developers- well…I’ve partially lost faith in many of the developers out there. Except for CD Projekt Red, who I pretty much worship (not really) for creating the masterpiece that is The Witcher 3, which is currently my favourite game. Yes, I did it! I mentioned a different game on a Call of Duty news site! Sue me! As for me being as harsh as I was, you were starting to get annoying. And don’t go “freedom of speech” on me because you were quite literally shoving your beliefs down our throats. Still, you know what’s funny? This is the first time I pre-order a game. And you know what’s even funnier? I would’ve bought Black Ops 3 on day 1. If you want to discuss the gameplay or any other aspect of the game, then you know where to find me. That being said, have a nice day, or whatever…

          • MichiganerE

            Sucker isn’t an insult, it’s someone who’s been tricked into something.

            Well, it’s good to know you’re against the practice as well.

            I don’t care if you’re talking about a different game, and you certainly weren’t being harsh. Besides, I wouldn’t of cared if you were.

            Beliefs that are helping people with knowing what they’re getting into.

            Have a nice day as well.

          • jordanxxxbrookes

            Sort of harsh but I mean yeah honestly. He’s less interested in discussing the actual game and moreso wanting to rant about the gaming industry and pre ordering being a cancer. In reality lower pre order sales won’t guarantee a better game anyway. Worst case COD games you can sell used and get at least $45-$50USD for so it’s not like it’d be breaking the bank if it did suck.

          • Have you ever pre-ordered before? Most occasions you don’t need to pay a single penny such as on Amazon and GAME, you’re not charged until the day before.

          • MichiganerE

            Yes, I have. But I got stopped I saw that most games last year were either broken or disappointments.

            lol tell it to all the tinfoil hat wearers! i get all the cods regardless if they are good or not. i have alot of money for games so idc

    • RdJokr

      I’m a sucker because I have faith that Treyarch will deliver? ‘Kay then.

      • MichiganerE

        But you don’t know that it’ll deliver. You don’t know that it’ll work on launch, and giving money for a product that’s not even complete is a stupid thing to do. It’s also stupid to use the excuse that copies of the game will run out when that doesn’t happen anymore considering the abundance of physical copies of games and the infinite amount of digital copies of games. After all, you game on Steam, right? You know, a service that’s based on digital games? Tell me, why pre-order a digital game when you’re guaranteed infinite copies of that game? For what, some cool bonus content that comes with the digital version of the game when you know that the content will eventually be standalone and buying that along with the game individually will be cheaper?

        • Matt

          People pre-order games not to secure one before selling out, but to enjoy it from day one because that’s what we all love to do. People have been pre-ordering games for ages, and you don’t really have any evidence that giving money now hinders the development process. Plus, the game is essentially finished now, all Treyarch needs to do is implement the community feedback from the beta and they’ll be ready to ship the title. Right now, the game is in a state that it will be for the next few months, and that state is simply tweaking weapon stats and specialist stats. They don’t have any big things to finish, such as making maps or fixing any gamebreaking issues.

          • MichiganerE

            But you don’t need to pre-order a game to get it on launch. See, back in the day, you had a reason to pre-order, that reason being that the only way that you could get a game was through buying a physical copy, and if you didn’t pre-order, you’d need to wait weeks, if not, months for the next shipment. But nowadays, not only do physical game not run out, but you also have ways to game that game (digital gaming for example).

            You don’t know that it’ll launch good, remember BF4?

          • You make no sense whatsoever….
            You complaining about “not everything being physical” or “how it was in the old days”.

            We’re working towards the future MATE

          • MichiganerE

            What I said has nothing to do with the age of gaming that were in.

          • It seems that way

          • MichiganerE

            But what I said doesn’t.

          • DaRaginAsian

            why are you being so… i dont know what the right word is but youre so stuck on the game not working on launch. if the game sucks on launch, then the game sucks on launch, treyarch knows how to deal with this type of shit since bo2 apparently wasnt exactly the smoothest launch either (i dont remember how it was).

          • MichiganerE

            We can’t be certain it will work on launch.

        • RdJokr

          Well, I would try to explain my view, but Siftblade did a good job at that already.

          At this point, yes, it’s unclear whether the game will work on launch. But even if the game does have a terrible launch, it will at least be optimized, because it’s Treyarch (and judging from my experience with the beta, the game’s already running pretty damn smooth on my ancient PC). And if multiplayer needs fixing and whatnot, then I’ll just go play the campaign and Zombies mode, because I don’t think Treyarch can screw those two up.

          And no, buying the bonus contents separately is not cheaper than buying the deluxe version, I don’t know where you got that. Prime example right now is the season pass, which is $10 cheaper if you buy the deluxe version.

          Also, preorder is only one factor affecting game development. It should not be solidified as the only cause of developers getting lazy. Take Arkham Knight, for instance. The game came out horribly on PC only because Warner Bros wanted Rocksteady to focus all their assets on consoles. Preorders had almost nothing to do with that.

          • Siftblade

            Yup.
            Base Game + 4 DLCs Seperately + Der Reise = $125
            Base Game + Season Pass + Der Reise = $115
            Digital Deluxe (includes Season Pass, Der Reise and extra goodies) = $100

          • MichiganerE

            That bonus content doesn’t matter if the game itself doesn’t work. Would you rather have a broken game with bonus content, or a working game without that bonus content? Quality over quantity.

          • Siftblade

            Are you saying that the bonus content causes the game not to work? Because that makes no sense, lol. You’re presenting me with a black and white situation (either have a working game, or preorder and have a broken game) when that’s simply not how it works.

          • MichiganerE

            Not at all. What i’m saying is this:
            A. would you rather pre-order the game to get more goodies with the risk that the game won’t work
            B. Would you rather not pre-order, miss out on bonus content, but have a better chance of the game working?

            Like I said, quality over quantity.

          • Matt

            Pre-ordering the game now, won’t cause the game to be unplayable in November, the game was fine when the beta first launched and it can only get better from that point until launch. Plus, you need people to actually get it on launch day otherwise how will we tell Treyarch what’s wrong with the game? If we can’t do that then the game will never live up to be a perfect game

          • MichiganerE

            But you don’t know that,

          • Matt

            All CoD titles have gotten better after each respective launch, BO3’s launch will be that much better thanks to the beta feedback. I do know that the game will get better, it’s happened every year.

          • MichiganerE

            Because BF4’s beta helped improve it, right?

          • Matt

            Well, I don’t know anything about the Battlefield’s launch history. I’m talking about Call of Duty exclusively

          • MichiganerE

            CoD is no exception to the rule.

          • Matt

            True, but we have no way of knowing whether the game will be broken like BF4 was at launch. CoD has had a history of only having connection and some other small issues at launch but nothing gamebreaking. Chances are, this launch will be no different than any other beta. Also, if people want to pre-order the game, then let them do so. I don’t think many people care about the launch quality very much, I know you’ll say “then this issue won’t ever be resolved”, but it’s not that big of an issue when it comes to CoD

          • MichiganerE

            But that doesn’t mean that a bad launch won’t become a problem in the future.

          • Swiss Mike

            u depressed bro?

          • MichiganerE

            Why would you think that? I feel fine.

          • Siftblade

            Preordering doesn’t increase the chance of the game working. Like I said, it’s not black and white.

          • MichiganerE

            Then what does?

          • CoD Bruh

            why is pre-ordering any different than waiting? even if u wait and buy it, u still have a chance of not liking the game or not working for you. also u get the beta so u could cancel it if u dont like it

          • MichiganerE

            Liking that game had nothing to do with it working.

          • CoD Bruh

            and i meant any ways that the game would just be a waste of money, like it not working at launch

          • MichiganerE

            Even if you don’t like it, knowing that the game works is a sign that the product that you bought is complete on launch.

          • CoD Bruh

            and why are we even arguing about this? just buy it or not jeez we dont care

          • Swiss Mike

            u poor bro?

          • Siftblade

            No, it’s just smarter to spend less money for more content.

        • FazalGaming

          Cos pre download 😛

          • MichiganerE

            Right.

        • DEMOLITION12

          to get it as early as possible… lol

          • MichiganerE

            Is it worth it to get a game “as early as possible” when that game doesn’t work correctly?

    • spartanelite

      Not really they’ve done pretty good without beta’s I’m sure they’ll do even better with it

      • MichiganerE

        Because BF4’s beta really happened the game at launch, right?

        • spartanelite

          Is this EA?is this Dice?no its not

          • MichiganerE

            Just because this isn’t a Dice or EA game doesn’t mean that CoD is immune to being broken at launch.

          • Ysi

            And that also doesn’t mean that it’s going to be broken at launch….

          • MichiganerE

            But you don’t know that it won’t be.

          • Ysi

            And you don’t know that it will be…. My point is that no one knows, but there is a chance that I/lots of people will like it at launch since they liked the beta……

          • MichiganerE

            Because BF4’s beta helped the game greatly.

          • Ysi

            Guess what…. This is no BF4 not the same company, not everyone the same you know

          • MichiganerE

            But that doesn’t mean CoD is immune to being broken.

          • Ysi

            No one said that, but since people liked bo3 beta then there is a bigger chance that people will like the launch hopefully, again that doesn’t mean that there is not a chance the at launch it will be bad hopefully not……. Get it

          • MichiganerE

            Yeah, I get what you’re saying.

          • Ysi

            Thank you, that’s my time now ladies and gentlemen I’ll see you as soon as possible

          • MichiganerE

            Goodbye.

          • spartanelite

            I mean I hear people say tryarch one are a bit like that at launch but I don’t remember bo1 and bo2 being broken at launch

          • MichiganerE

            That doesn’t mean that BO3 won’t be.

          • spartanelite

            And will it

          • MichiganerE

            But you don’t know.

    • Fly Mann13

      You can always cancel the pre order and get your money back, pre order at the minumum is $5. And everyone who didnt preorder gets roughly only 2 days of beta

      • MichiganerE

        You still pre-ordered nonetheless.

        • Fly Mann13

          I didnt pre order, im lazy i dont feel like it, but its no big deal to pre order

          • MichiganerE

            I’m glad to see that you’re not.

    • KoD Phazz

      How is that? Pre order for as little as 5 bucks, get to play the FULL amount of beta time, still have the option to cancel and get your money back after the beta(or whenever you feel like it). Sounds like a no brainer to me sir. I’m willing to let someone hold 5 bucks to play the beta in its entirety.

      • MichiganerE

        Because it was going to become open to all.

        • Koolz

          We didn’t know that until the PS4 beta started, and there’s no confirmation it will be extended on Xbox and PC as of now.

          • MichiganerE

            Oh, come on, it was pretty obvious that this would happen. This shit did happen with Destiny, after all.

        • KoD Phazz

          If you didn’t pre order, you got the beta later than everyone else. Again, a no brainer dude.. You can cancel the preorder, get your money back, and play the beta for the maximum amount of time that it’s available. I don’t know how you don’t understand that.

          • MichiganerE

            I do understand.

  • Seytric

    I really like the game, but I feel like you have to try hard every game or you get destroyed. Also, from the maps I’ve played they encourage 1 on 1 gun fights(because they are generally skinny, with few flanking routes) which means most people have to migrate to the strongest few weapons to do anything. Over all I like the game a lot though.

    • guest

      stop acting like there is something wrong with that

      • Seytric

        Wrong with what specifically?

    • lunator100hd .

      The maps are good , way better than aw ghosts maps.

      • Seytric

        I do like the maps in general as they have few camping spots and seem to make sense with 3 lanes but there are few flanking routes, which forces most kills to be gunfights, so most people will use just a few weapons.

        • lunator100hd .

          Its not battlefield dude, the game itself contains a few weapons and we all know that ppl use the most op guns no matter how many flanking routes exist in the maps.

          • Seytric

            That’s true. But you can’t really just pick a random weapon and have fun with it like I used to do.

          • lunator100hd .

            Only if you get lucky and the game match you up with noobs

  • imBATMAN

    i cannot play online, TDM and the like are gray instead of white as if I didn’t unlock them yet. I restart my console and the game but still nothing.

  • NotShitAtCOD

    Be ware people who are about to play the beta since this is the most broken game since ghosts

    • GinsuVictim

      Nothing broken about Ghosts. AW is full of broken shit.

      • NotShitAtCOD

        What ghosts did you play?

          not the one where i get my opinions from some irrelevant youtuber lol piss off

    im loling my ass off at xbox players who were thinking that getting the beta after the ps4 would benefit them xD im such a sadistic cunt :’)

      Don’t get how that makes you sadistic but ok

  • Cool, more people to play with on PC.

  • hagaja

    what da fak?

  • Alexander Frazier

    is the beta down on the pc or what?????

  • Guywithbrains

    Now no one has an excuse for not trying this game before launch. Although be aware PC players there are already aimbots playing the beta.

    Hopefully you have fun. 🙂

  • xRyzK

    is there a way to play the beta on mac and how ?? please

    • Yankeephil

      Download steam, it works on Mac as well

    • Yankeephil

      I was wrong, I just looked at the Steam store and the only COD games they have for Mac are BO and MW3, no BO3 or Beta

    • Run Windows from boot camp and play from that. You’ll have so much lag though that it isn’t even worth your time. Macs are not for gaming. The only Mac that might be able to play the game is the latest Mac Pro model.

  • FazalGaming

    When does the beta end?

  • Smayo

    My thoughts about bo3 so far are that the game is oke, the first two days I had a lot of fun but now the magic is wearing of and I start to get annoyed about a lot of things.

    1st. I really have trouble spotting enemies, they blend in to the background almost invisible, and the countless headglitch spots aren’t helping either.

    2nd. The pop-ins are really annoying and distracting, CoD always had some pop-ins here and there but now it’s ridiculous how many times you see them thinking it’s enemy movement.

    3rd. The map sizes, this one I can’t be full on consider we’d only saw 4 maps, but imo they are too small for the game’s speed, especially in OBG game modes this is noticeable. Not to mention the hellstorm missle cluster spread of half the map.

    4th. The movement system, I don’t know if it’s the movement or hit detection or whatever but when you shoot an enemy while he’s jumping/sliding it seems you need to pump in twice the amount of bullets in them, I had the same issue with AW and the jump shot in bo2, seems that is still an issue and for me one of the most frustrating things to happen.

    5th. A lot of other small things and balancing issues but I won’t put them in detail here because I think it’s either personal feelings and/or can/will be fixed in the full game, it’s still a beta ofcourse.

    Anyway I haven’t that much fun anymore as I did the first 2 days, I have a mixed feeling about this game now, it’s a good game, a fun game even but to me it needs some work to be worth a purchase.

    Played it on xbox one btw.

    • lunator100hd .

      I played on ps4 beta and the pop-ins you mentioned is not even a thing on ps4 (maybe there were a couple on hunted but thats it) also i find the maps very good with flow unlike ghosts and AW , the sizes are also good except combine which is very hectic and some times gets annoying but still better than every map in ghosts, in general agreed with the rest. Number one problem on my list is the hedglitching and the inconsistent connection.

      • Smayo

        I noticed immediately that the pop-ins where far worse on xbox one then on the ps4, I have to say I didn’t play the ps4 version but watched a lot of youtube clips and streams on twitch, and hardly noticed them there

        It was literally the first thing I noticed when my first match started wednesday on xbox one, I even checked ps4 clips again to make sure it wasn’t something I looked over

        Now the new map stronghold, every rock has some sort of pop-in or texture correction when you run by, it’s really annoying

        I just hope that they put as much effort in the xbox one version as they do with the ps4, but I vividly remember the ps3 community complaining about Bo1 quality on their system…

        • lunator100hd .

          Well it seems that xone’s ram cant handle the maps like ps4’s ram does.

          • Smayo

            Poor optimization I call it, it is now a lot better with the latest update we got (level cap update)

    • Guywithbrains

      1. I didn’t find out this to be such a big problem but if there is an easy fix for it then why not?

      2. This problem didn’t occur at least for me.

      3. Maps are slightly too small because thrusters allow you to move so fast. I can’t wait to see how Nuk3town will play because so far it has always been clusterf*ck.

      4. My gunfights always happened on the ground BUT TTK was inconsistent so that could be the reason why sometimes you needed to shoot more bullets than normally.

      5. They have some time to balance weapons and everything but I would hope they buff some sub machine guns and bring back Rejack with slower animation or 3 seconds disable for thrusters.

      And I do agree this game is so fun but it needs some work. Although they have so much to do and so little amount of time so I guess we are going to suffer in some way. Probably lag, hit detection, matchmaking and team balance because after all it is Treyarch, the worst from all Call of Duty developers in terms of netcoding.

      • Smayo

        I really hope they do something about the visibility of the characters in this game, it’s my number one issue that I have with this game

        I know I’m getting older but I can’t imagine I’m the only one with this problem 😉

        • Guywithbrains

          And you aren’t. Even Reddit users are asking for fix. So hopefully they fix it before launch.

          • Smayo

            That is good to hear, the more people vocal about it, the better the chance it’s getting adressed.

            And if they optimize the xbox one version as good as the ps4 version the pop-ins shouldn’t be an issue anymore as well

            That leaves only the connection/HD and spaws open, if those are acceptable it will be all good for bo3…
