    First
    The competitive gaming scene is shit and ruined CoD.

    • jordanxbrookes

      I enjoyed competitive gaming when it wasn’t mainstream and was just GameBattles.

      • Kyle Hubbard

        I totally agree with you, but how you worded it does make it sound like a stereotypical hipster remark. I think the rise of the competitive scene has caused the call of duty scene to evolve, and it’s just not my cup of tea.

        • jordanxbrookes

          It’s just how I feel.

    • LovekillerX

      Who’s to blame? I think Treyarch presented league play etc.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I personally blame Hastr0 since he was the one that wanted competitive to be out there, hence why you saw him in the interviews at Gamescom 2012 and why Treyarch introduced League Play, CODCaster etc.. I like the dude, but I hate him for that.

        • Ysi

          I think treyarch did it right as you are not forced to play competitive in public matches, only in league play

        • dominick amaro

          Random question but why did they make pros be in booths? imo it was way more entertaining when they weren’t in them like mlg anaheim bo2

    • Mick

      I don’t get why AW had SBMM when league play is clearly about playing people of your skill? -__- but hey, SledgeHammerGame got no Brain

      • Kobrah

        And ironically, League Play doesn’t even have SBMM!

        • jordanxbrookes

          It does.

          • Kobrah

            It was confirmed by Condrey that it doesn’t
            Couldn’t be bothered to find the article

          • ScOott

            You sure your not dreaming lol ?
            If that was the case everyone who bitched about SBMM would be playing ranked play..

          • Kobrah

            Apparently it was patched in after a few months

          • jordanxbrookes

            It didn’t at the start, but then in a patch about 4-5 months ago SBMM was toned up to what it normally was in Pubs.

          • Kobrah

            Ok, I didn’t realise that

      • Snufflelophagus

        Insane in the membrane! Insane in the membrane!

        What insane? Got no brain!

    • PuddingAuxRais1ns

      I don’t see how. If anything, I think it has made CoD better and it’s only gonna get better from here. It has made the game much more balanced and more fun.

      • Greasy Neckbeard

        That gay shit drift0r is going to ruin bo3

      • Kill Denied

        Removing sight lines and forcing everyone to fight in close quarters isn’t balancing shit and hasn’t made anything fun

    • Kyle Soule

      You’re shit.

      • Kill Denied

        Your name is shit

        • Kyle Soule

          At least I have a name. Your creativity for a name is shit.

          • Kill Denied

            Your username is most likely your real name, and you mock my creativity. LOL

          • Kyle Soule

            The “name” you came up with is not even creativity. It is just stupid. At least my username isnt stupid and is far more creative than yours even if it is my real name.

  • RdJokr

    Meanwhile, still no Supply Credits… Way to prioritize, SHG.

  • CK

    But do we care though? That’s the main question

  • Toolio

    It’s funny how everyone loves eSports yet it’s the sole reason why CoD has declined in recent years. Just look at how sweaty and boring AW was yet so many people wanted this and the casuals were made to feel like they weren’t with the times. MW2/BO1 were pure fun because it was 99.9% casual but now it’s pure competitive; it’s just no fun at all and no wonder they’ve lost 15m of sales each year since Ghosts. This is why BO3 will fail miserably with it’s tinpot sized maps and simplistic gameplay to make people feel good about themselves. eSports killed CoD and Activision value that money and publicity more than selling the games to the wider community like it used to. BO3 may have broke pre-order records but that was only so people could play the beta – it wont sell more than 10m copies I reckon and it’ll be the worst selling title since CoD3.

    • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

      Believe me it s not going to be the worst selling title since Cod3. This ain t no CoD Ghosts or AW, it s BLACK OPS 3. The successor of the most popular CoD ever since Cod4. And considering that alot of people are buying it for the Zombies which is insanely popular, I think this game is going to surpass both Ghosts and AW when it comes to sales ( and quality too ) .

      • LovekillerX

        Pass sales? Yes. Quality is very much about your own taste.

        We don’t know accurate numbers but I’m sure Black Ops 3 will probably sell more than earlier titles. But I think that Call of Duty is still slowly dying because people seem to trust only to Treyarch.

        • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

          I m very curious on Infinity Ward s next project. Idk but I have a feeling that 2016 is going to be a good year for CoD. But SledgeHammer Games ? Nah I just want them to get out of CoD and work on different games but if they stay they should rebuild their vision of CoD , because they were terrible this year.

          • LovekillerX

            I’m waiting for Infinity Ward’s next project because IW is simply my favorite developer. I hope they remaster Modern Warfare series someday…

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I hope it s Ghosts 2 next year. I loved it s theme and the campaign and Extinction were great. Multiplayer just needs a little tweak.

          • Guywithbrains

            I am sure it will be Ghosts 2 despite the fact that majority didn’t like Ghosts. However, I enjoyed it a lot. Especially campaign and multiplayer but Extinction was really good addition too. Also take into account that they got back MW2 multiplayer guy and some guy(s) from Naughty Dog so fingers crossed they deliver with Ghosts 2.

            Little tweaks to multiplayer: better maps with 3 lanes, better killstreaks (keep pointstreak system) and bring old Modern Warfare 3’s specialist package back.

            But here is a list of games that I think will be coming in 2016-2018:

            2016: Ghosts 2
            2017: Advanced Warfare 2
            2018: Totally new and unnamed Treyarch title with future setting

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I love 3 lane maps but I don t think it s that necessary. As long as they increase the TTK and change the colors to make it similar to AW’s I m fine.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Nah, I reckon Treyarch will revisit WW2 after Black Ops 3. There’s clearly a high demand for a WW2 shooter on 8th Gen platforms and who better than Treyarch!

      • EnderZ

        If there is any blame for the current state of COD first Activision and then Treyarch. They turn COD from grunt in a platoon to a super soldier and each COD since has just expanded on the the super soldier experience. The one man army. Thats why league for the teams and pub for the lone super soldier. BO3 will sell but between 5 systems you will have a Ghost/AW experience of limited player pools.

      • jordanxbrookes

        It will do well, but it’s not going to do massively well. Sure it will pass sales of Ghosts and AW, but I reckon it won’t do better than Black Ops 2.

        • EnderZ

          Not after the Beta, which put me on the fence and many others. I will probably get it, but after a month or so. I’ll wait for some word of mouth, community feedback and for them to patch initial bugs before I drop another $60 on COD.

          • Kobrah

            Keep in mint it was a BETA – not a demo of the game! The whole idea was to find bugs and issues so they could be fixed for the final game

          • EnderZ

            Understood the Beta fact. But was not blown away by the game premise and characters. I don’t think I want to play as a specialist was bored quickly. I want the abilities but my own customizable character. I want a firing range, more weapons, less flinch better maps… I am in wait and see mode. Battlefront is coming, Ghost Recon Wildlands look promising, have no faith in Infinity Ward. Guess I’m waiting for AW2.

        • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

          I agree.But who knows, the new generation of children might get BO3 as their first CoD .

    • EnderZ

      FYI and numbers are (Global) rough and does not include PC:

      MW3 (PS3/360)=28m
      BO1 (PS3/360)=26m
      BO2 (PS3/360)=27m
      Ghost(PS3/4-X1/360)=22m
      AW (PS3/4-X1/360)=19m

      VGChartz

      Yes, there has been a decline in sales but don’t know where u got 15m from. Also, Ghost/AW and BO3 are split between 5 systems which have and will fractured the player pool. This should a point of major concern when comes to player experience. Currently PS4 has the most players on AW.

      • Jeff

        Advanced Warfare sales and player counts have never been made public. It is estimated that there is only 11m unique owners and 14m including the people that upgraded to the current gen versions. Ghosts also only sold 19m copies into retail so I don’t know where you got 22m from – actually all your figures are wrong by a mile.

        • EnderZ

          Jeff. I did say it was a rough and I did quote my source which is VGChartz. And these are global figures not just North America. Off by a mile I don’t think so. Sales and player count are 2 different things.

    • jordanxxxbrookes

      So, since you don’t like the game instead of saying it sucks and playing something you do like. You feel the need to do the generic, “COD is on the decline” doom and gloom bs? BO3 will sell probably double what AW did and SBMM isn’t as strong so you can go back to actually earning a care package or two against people even noobier than you.

      Also nice straw man too. “Everyone” doesn’t love Esports, it’s pretty common that a lot of folks think ESports ruins COD more than helps. You’re also not a casual player either. Casual is the guy who gets the game on Xmas and plays occasionally not the disgruntled and bitter ass vet trying to act like him not liking a game that is admittedly terrible is someone signifying that COD is doomed and losing 15 million a year. STFU

    • TehShadewRaeper

      U obviously don’t have a clue what u are talking about.

      1. The reason Aw was “filled with tryhards” is because SSBM was added. This lead to u feeling people were trying hard because they were the same level as u

      2. Ghosts was not a competitive supported game really. IW two months later finally added features like broadcaster mode into the game. Also there where no true competitive game objective based game modes besides blitz. Also the pros hated the overall game

      3. The most popular maps of all time are “tin sized maps” and the simplistic gameplay is what makes Cod so popular to play.

      4. Also black ops Is when GBs really started to gain popularity

      • jordanxxxbrookes

        Concur all 4 points…

    • Baruck Obumo

      bo3 has already sold more than aw and ghosts

      • EnderZ

        So, BO3 has already sold over 20mil units. Really, did u buy 1, I didn’t. Who else got a copy of BO3. Now, if you wanna talk preorders;
        XBone = 567,493
        PS4 = 418,262
        VGChartz as of Aug.

        In other words, I’m pretty sure Treyarch didn’t sell 20mil pre-oders.

        And, regardless how many units they sell, the player pool, like Ghost and AW will be split between 5 systems. That is a real problem that no one is discussing.

        • LovekillerX

          Yeah I don’t know how these guys make up these numbers because they do it a lot. Black Ops 3 hasn’t sold a single copy yet but pre-orders are already reaching million in US according to VGchartz (which is why you should think source critic). That isn’t much though.

          My point is that people tend to think that pre-orders and sold copies are already in millions just because Treyarch is doing it. I think people have already lost faith so we won’t see MW2 or Black Ops 1 launch days.

        • Baruck Obumo

          yes i bought one(pre order)

  • Diego Diniz

    Black Ops 3 Countdown………………….

    • ScOott

      1 month, 27 days and 6 hours..

      Or 57 days which ever you prefer 🙂

    • LovekillerX

      I hope that this time launch won’t be chaotic. But we will see about that…

      • Diego Diniz

        Im Brazilian and I dont speak english very well. I want to send a Tweet to Vahn talking about the HUDGE LAG here in Brazil on Beta. Can you guys help me how to write correctly something like this:
        “@DavidVonderhaar We Brazilians suffer with HUDGE LAG with servers on Beta. Can you guys fix it on launch???”

        I dont know how to explain but, i think you guys (Americans) do not suffer with too much Lag as we brazilians on Beta…

        • LovekillerX

          I’m actually European. I suffer from lag too so you’re not only one.

          “We Brazilians suffer from huge lag that occurred during the beta. Can you fix lag before launch?”

          • Diego Diniz

            Thanks Bro!

          • Kyle Hubbard

            And us Australian are like: “Really?”. It sucks you guys have lag, but you can connect from a pool of 750 million people that live in Europe. In Australia we only have 23 million with an extra 4 million being people from New Zealand. We can’t connect to North American like Brazilians can even if it is less than viable for them, and can’t connect to Europe either. So that’s at least something you can be thankful for.

          • Snufflelophagus

            From Malaysia.. nuff said.

            Even connecting to Japan / Korea lags. Only Singapore, Indonesia & Thailand. Way to limit the player pool.

            Global appeal of CoD should warrant dedi servers already! *sigh*

            Great connection in Australia though (Stayed in Melbourne for 6 years)

          • Kyle Hubbard

            That sucks mate. Australia doesn’t have enough players to populate anything other than the TDM, DOM, SnD playlists but at least in those it’s a solid connection. Not to mention we will/may have a dedi in Melbourne. There will be a dedi in Tokyo for BO3, but Japan would probably not be that much closer than Aus. We had a couple Indonesian guys in my squad at tactical gaming, who could never find matches and would always get connected to horrendous Australian 1 bar connections. I would hate to think how matchmaking would be for you guys.

          • Snufflelophagus

            Mate, SBMM on AW.

            so much FML…

          • I don’t know about anyone else, but being in North America (Canada) I have never got into a lobby with anyone other than Americans. So no Brazilians do not connect to North American servers. Maybe Mexico does occasionally, but that’s the furthest I have ever seen.

  • ScOott

    Here is just an example of how to bring Kool looking gear to the game without turning the battlefield into a cheese fest of cowboys, underwater divers, ryse son of Rome soldiers, spacemen and what other shit we have had for the past two years .. I hope Treyarch have took notes ..

  • LovekillerX

    Wow that looks awesome! Maybe I should try to get that gear set. 🙂

    • ScOott

      Good luck … 🙂

      • LovekillerX

        Thank you it will probably take time but it will surely be worth it. 🙂

        • ScOott

          If you get that full gear set before bo3 without spending any money, I will change my name to LoveKillerX is the best!

          That’s how confident I am that this is just a money grabbing strategy..

          • LovekillerX

            But this isn’t competition. I can spend my all life while I try to get that gear set and still I probably won’t get it. Who knows? And to be honest I don’t lose my sleep if I don’t get that gear set although it is so cool.

          • ScOott

            Exactly, if bo3 released something like this, I would rather buy it and be able to have it, than having zero chance of getting it for free or spending stupid amount on supply drops.. I hope they give us that option in bo3.

  • Ak74u

    I like AW but I rather see something bo3 related I’m tired of this game already it was fun but customization messed shit up

  • jooker-jr

    I feel like I’m the only who thinks that eSporst didn’t do anything to cod.

    • dominick amaro

      It made the cod community more competitive which is a good thing. There will always be try hards in any call of duty. Maybe AW has brainwashed you with the SBMM to think that you can never ever find a fun lobby.

      • jooker-jr

        Define “Fun”, because I have been having fun with the game ( it annoys me some times but for the most part it’s fun) but you clearly state the opposite.

          • They also said I could just take a picture of it…

          • ScOott

            Lol okay.. They changed the rules for you, they got to let you win now! I wonder how many people have actually entered.. Have you seen any one else tweet a picture ?

          • I haven’t yet. CI did favorite the tweet so that’s good. I’m doing this for the crew! Let hope I win!

          • ScOott

            For the crew ?! .. I hope you win! it’s looking good so far if not seen anyone else post.. When is the dead line for it to end do we know ?

          • I don’t think they ever said there was… I’m assuming there one though. :/

          • ScOott

            I’ve asked Keshav.. Il tell you if he responds to me.

  • John Murphy

    This is ridiculous, why they can just put the exo creator in game for the player wants to customize exo for our teams. This is bullshit

  • Ricardo Rodriguez

    Honestly since the BO3 beta I have yet to barely touch AW… Mainly because of people taking advantage of the SBMM just to bring up their K/D.. AW kind of bores me now Mainly because BO3 took me back to the good old days which AW did not do. It just feels smoother to me than AW. (not a developer fanboy as I love all CODs equally, flaws or not)…
