    Secund!

  • jordanxbrookes

    And just as 2XP is about to be turned on -_-

    • Biobooster77

      Bet it won’t be extended either!?

      • why wouldnt it?

        • Biobooster77

          Beta I can understand they need as much info to make the game better, now that have the beta info, no need to extend anything really is there, they have our money we bought the game but Lets see what happens first,servers have been screwed up for some time either way I’m still gonna try and play!

          • Builds hype. Puts them above AW and Sledgehammer, who extended it when they got attacked. But your right, lets wait and see

      • The Flash

        they’ve extended it before aswell as the beta, if there are issues not our fault

      • Aceshigh87

        I’d disagree. Usually if they have major server issues (not just lag but actual shutdowns like this) they will give or extend double XP as an apology of sorts.

        • Biobooster77

          Yeah no doubt but lets see as I said I’m still gonna try and play 🙂

    • RdJokr

      Servers are back online, so I’m guessing it’s 2XP as usual. Besides, we’re starting 2XP on a Thursday.

      BO2 servers are offline though.

  • Damn, that’s quite the shutdown! Massive DDoS perhaps?

  • Mick

    Not suprising, considering all the connection issues in South America and stuff. I had a feeling something like this was gonna happen. But I’m in school now so hopefully by 2pm it’ll be fixed 🙂

  • Bdotson1984

    This isnt news….they have had issues for two weeks

  • Stefan Lang

    There are either a lot of people trying to play this game which is great or the servers are being attacked by some losers ??

    • ItzSikh

      no offense dude but I thought u were mexican

  • Guywithbrains

    I have no problems at all and I haven’t experienced lag during my latest 5 team deathmatch games. I wonder what did they do…

    Also my bet is DDoS attack but we’ll see.

    • ItzSikh

      ISIS were part of this since they’re having a cyber war with anonymous. They’re probably having the cyber war on BO3 doing MLG DANKshots.

      • MichiganerE

        You’re goddamn right.

      • LostInPasta

        Mom get the camera!!!

  • ScOott

    I have a spare 3 hours all to my self for a change, n bo3 plays up… Luckily of all people Guywithbrains saved my night .. I could kiss u! Infact I will *if u like it or not* ?..

    • Guywithbrains

      Kiss never does any harm so why not?

      Also you’re welcome.

      • ScOott

        ? U have my respect back, I’ve been a bit harsh of late, Trying to carry things on from A.W for no reason, ll leave u be.. Sorry for any recent arguments I’ve attempted to carry on.. I know people are lagging all over the place ..il even tread carefully with lovekiller..

        • FazalGaming

          lovekiller is bae

          • ScOott

            What does that even mean?

        • Guywithbrains

          Glad to hear we get along again. Seems like Black Ops 3 brought a new era to Call of Duty but also to our communication.

    • infidel

      Since you like cartman so much, I was wondering: Are you PC bro?

      • ScOott

        Lol that is the strangest conclusion ive seen, eric cartman > p.c lol

        No I’m not sorry xbox one and Ps4 .. I don’t even watch south park any more.. ? ..

        • infidel

          South park just dedicated the entire new season to nailing PC for the mental illness it is. Cartman is now out of the closet, and PC just to let you know. You should watch it, season 19 is the best season in a long time

          • ScOott

            Lol sounds good, il have to get back into it ..

          • PC Bro

            You’re PC bro?

            I’m PC too bro! Omaha chapter 69!

            Caitlyn Jenner’s so brave and courageous

          • infidel

            No, I’m not PC. I am not mentally ill, thank you, and I really have no idea who this Caitlyn is or why should I care. I do admire her driving skills tho, if they are anything like in the show.

    • w

      how did he save your night? this is some juicy shit from two former hated rivals

      • ScOott

        Lmao, he told to wait till the numbers changed on my ps4, I would of just switched it off .. and then he accepted my kiss which was funny, coming from him.. Hopefully the stupid shit will finally end, which recently has been down to me anyway! .. So best behaviour for me man ..

        • Has been entertaining for the rest of us but probably for the best…

          • ScOott

            I’m glad! Il try keep up the entertainment going. Just not with GuyWithBrains 😀

  • I’ve had a few issues connecting earlier, but all good right now.

    • infidel

      Every single loser who cried for 3 years after BO2 was released and every other games was not BO2.5 is now trying to log in to get their quickscoping fix. BO3 is going to be one of the biggest CODs, if only because of that

  • infidel

    Nice week or two take off COD and try to get some Fallout 4 crammed in. Every time I play, I put on a few new mods and discover more of the game. Easily a GOTY, just goes to show that you should always have a solid single player backup in case the game goes offline, momentarily or permanently.

      “For once a comment with less negativity, I like this side of you, comrade.”

  • FazalGaming

    All the servers are good now I think.

  • Drakon

    THEY’RE UP AND RUNNING AGAIN! YES!

    • FazalGaming

      Yeah

  • FazalGaming

    It just hit me that lovekiller still uses Advanced Warfare as his profile picture… xD
    Well GG if he likes that game I don’t mind

    • LovekillerX

      I haven’t thought about changing it. I like the game but I don’t feel like I should change it.

      • Drakon

        change it to the blops 3 logo since it’s going to be the best CoD there is.

        • infidel

          It’s BO2.5. Best COD is COD4 because there wouldn’t be any more cods if that one sucked.

          • Drakon

            Yeah, guess you’re right. No CoD can beat CoD4.

          • シーザー クラウン

            Uhh, many CoD games are better then CoD 4. Blops 1/2 MW3 are imo much better games then COD4. I can feel the hate I’m gonna get but thats what i think

          • Drakon

            WTF, the best games are CoD4 and MW2! No CoD is better.

          • YoungMurf

            You really fucked that up bro.

    • infidel

      AW is still getting new content, meaning that SHG might be updating the game even after a new cod is out, unlike the other studios

    • lunator100hd .

      You judge ppl based on their profile picture? Ok then what we should think for you, based on your biohazard icon?

      • FazalGaming

        I don’t just people bruh… I’ve known him for ages I just realised he still has a AW pic, did you even read what I said? I said I don’t care if he has AW as his picture because he enjoys it.

    • RdJokr

      No one ever notices my Mitchell avatar 🙁

      • FazalGaming

        xD

      • infidel

        That’s because nobody likes mitchels. He’s a naive, ungrateful bastard, otherwise very generic. It’s all fine until the game decides that you have to work for sentinel now, they should have given you the option of who to side with, it’s not like the devs had 3 yrs to make the game or anything. Irons was 100% right when he ripped his arm off, after the atlas betrayal he’s just a little bitch who becomes anybody’s whipping boy.

        • RdJokr

          … Right, because working for Irons, the guy responsible for the KVA’s terrorist attacks and a massive nuke sounds like what he should totally do, right?

          And if I had to pick between my old sergeant who is clearly one of the good guys, and the CEO who gave me a second chance in combat and is also evil, then it’s Cormack all the way.

          • infidel

            You obviously missed the entire point of the game. The intel suggests that something like this was inevitable. The power plants were made from spit and clay, and it was done on purpose. Either US wanted their power plants to go down, or there was some corruption done either way. Whatever the case, all those mcdonalds cheap power plant owners reap what they sow. I am behind Irons all the way. Best moment in the second half of the campaign was watching that dumb POS cormack bleed out and die, only good part of the campaign after “Manhunt” I don’t even consider the second half of the campaign canon, not after Hades almost KILLS A POWERED ARMORED SOLDIER WITH HIS BARE HANDS. That’s just fucking stupid. The whole game should have just been the atlas campaign. Missed opportunity

  • BHCMax

    Public server files for bo3 would stop this nonsense, plus us euro players wouldn’t be matched with Russians and usa on same server pff.

  • Ryumoau

    Dang, why do these issues always have to pop up during double XP or launch days. 🙁

  • Guywithbrains

    Black Ops 3 version 1.03 loading on my PS4.

    • LovekillerX

      Same here. Waiting for patch notes.

    • lunator100hd .

      Me too.

    • Drakon

      Still in school. ;(

  • infidel

    So is leveling up as easy as it was in BO2 in BO3? If so, I might just wait a while before I get in, I still have to prestige in my older CODS before people completely move on from them. Bo2 and AW are the only games I am maxed in, so I am glad this doesn’t effect me

    • [EV] BLISS

      No leveling up in bo3 takes a long time. Well at least more than previous cods

  • J4MES

    Typical! Just minutes before Double XP starts. The PC version seems to be running but the servers are wobbling with huge lag spikes.

  • lunator100hd .

    It seems like psn experiencing issues too.

  • zack

    Talked to Microsoft support and they said they are still on temporary servers from last Christmas. Remember when lizard squad took down everything? Yeah well they still haven’t fixed it. Thanks guy at Microsoft for actually spilling the beans and telling the truth.

    • infidel

      If some 14yr old script kiddies can take down a whole game network, then I fear what actual skilled hackers could do to, say, our power plants or military networks. Now that’s scary
