  • Furst!

    • Will WilFredo Mendoza

      You’re only first cause not alot literally cares about this post. So no, you have not gotten your sweg back and Juses will not agree with you.

      • It’s still a furst title and I will take it. A furst is a furst. But I will agree with you, like nobody seems to care about esports anymore.

        • Keshav Bhat

          “like nobody” ..

          dang, might wanna tell that to all of the OpTic, EnVy, Team Kaliber, etc…fans and supporters of Call of Duty eSports.

          • I just meant around here. There’s so much hate for esports in the comments sections. I will admit though that I do enjoy esports, and I wish more people here at CI did too.

        • Not on CI, but go over to reddit and youll be surprised

  • Stefan Lang

    I doesnt feel the same watching this shit on Ps4 now. They all have weird ass gamertags now smh. Underscores and shit everywhere

    • Duke of hazard

      Cant blame them. Annoying kids keep taking their GTs.

      • Stefan Lang

        I know. They should have had a thing where you could verify yourself and all of the accounts with the same name would be forced to change their names.

        • Tony Beast

          They will be playing on Lan and for ps4 you can name your gamertag whatever you want it to be without underscores and such.

          • Stefan Lang

            True I forgot about that ?

      • MERCENARYCOMBAT

        IMMM FAAAAAZZEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE ILLL NOSCOPE U,ILL KILL UR MOMMY. It’s hilarious though. I love to troll em with my voice changer to sound like a kid

    • MERCENARYCOMBAT

      I know. Same here but it was like xXXsniperXx it was annoying.

    • infidel

      what’s smh?

      • ccrows

        SMH = Shaking My Head…

        • infidel

          thanks

      • MERCENARYCOMBAT

        Silly goose

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Who cares?

      • Stefan Lang

        When people comment shit like this, they care 😉

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          It’s fucking stupid to not watch something because of the platform that they’re playing on. Sorry?

          • Stefan Lang

            Okay, I didnt say I wasnt gonna watch it. I said it’s gonna be weird watching it and even watching it now cause they all have weird ass gamertags now. So yeah, get the fuck outta here tough guy.

          • Chris Theart

            Im not sure whats the deal with the gamer tag thing you were talking about cuz i never watch esports ever. But i dont think what your talking about can be that bad to hurt your viewing experience, i feel like you should give a try atleast:/

          • Chris Theart

            As for me ill prob actually watch esports this year since i actually own this years cod ( my first cod) and i seem to be very into it so ill try to watch esports even if i dont know anyone or the teams

          • Chris Theart

            If anyone heres know alot about cod esports could you maybe fill me in abit on what teams i should look out for? Like really good or maybe underdogs that might make a comeback this year or something

          • RaideR

            Optic Gaming and Faze are the Best teams rise nation is an underdog

          • RaideR

            They will all have Og names now on Lan ,but ik want ur talking about

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I wasn’t trying to sound “tough”, you dumbfuck. I was pointing out your widely apparent idiocy bitching about something petty like fucking COMPETITIVE. Nobody should care. It shouldn’t even exist.

          • Stefan Lang

            Lol your name is Brady. Please exit.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            What’s wrong with my name? Ad-hominem bullshit doesn’t affect me in the slightest. Quit your bitching and move on.

          • Stefan Lang

            You’re mad as shit just shut the fuck up already. I hit a nerve I can tell ?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Says the one who resorted to ad-hominem. Pathetic. Absolutely pathetic. Don’t tell me what to do. Take your “wannabe-tough” comments and shove them up your ass, you prick.

          • Stefan Lang

            Ok Mr. Bradbitch

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Lol, you’re taking this a little too seriously. Competitive may be retarded, but it’s not ad-hominem name calling retarded.

          • Stefan Lang

            Ok based off how long ago this was, it’s pretty apparent to me that you want the last word so have at it Mr. Bradbitch. 🙂

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Lol k, this has gone on long enough, I’ll let you calm down.

  • CoDforever

    Hahaha “Activision Hosting Online Qualifiers” I wonder how this is gonna turn out

    if theres any issues like with host or something they are going to look so bad

    • Keshav Bhat

      Online qualifiers have been around for a while on CoD. That’s how CoD Champs 2015 and 2014 qualifiers worked.

      • CoDforever

        But MLG hosted those and MLG regularly had problems but since they were a third party they didnt look so bad for it

        • Keshav Bhat

          But what’s the difference? Either way, Champs was an Activision event. Plus, I believe it is ESL that will host the online part too.

          As far as I know, this LAN qualifying event also takes place (the North America LAN) at ESL’s Burbank, CA Studios.

  • Tayler Hammond

    What about the amateur division???
    Where’s our shit?

    • FazalGaming

      It’s called Core.

      • Kobrah

        Or Arena

    • Tony Beast

      it’s called the Challenge division where amateurs and aspiring pro’s can compete at LAN’s and try to earn a spot in COD Champs 2016. But the qualifications have not been announced yet

  • Slothigans

    Ps4 doesn’t fit in with competitive. Too much of a casual console.

    • Kobrah

      What’s the make a console more casual? Half of the features on Xbox are to watch TV and shit

      • FazalGaming

        PS4 is more gaming orientated, while xbox one is more full entertainment orientated like TV and shit like that.

        • Kobrah

          Exactly!

      • Slothigans

        Yes but it’s always been on the competitive side. Just my opinion.

        • Kurama The Nine-Tailed Fox

          Watching TV is not competitive lol

          • Slothigans

            Ok.

          • Tony Beast

            The reason why it seems more casual now is because it was. XB1 had everything and PS4 had nothing so it didn’t make sense for people to take it serious. Now all that will change. Like when BO1 was played competitively on Ps3, The Xbox 360 was deemed “more casual” for COD because they did not have anything.

          • Slothigans

            True. See I like that you say what you want without getting angry or offended. Good for you.

          • He was talking about the Xbox brand in general, and how MLG used to heavily revolve around it.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Call of Duty is not competitive.

    • YoungMurf

      Lol you and lunator are bum boy faggots.

      • Slothigans

        Sorry I hurt your feelings. In case you didn’t know, what I put was called an opinion. Learn so you won’t get butt hurt next time. (:

    • lunator100hd .

      Τo be honest i really want an official ps4 elite controller with paddles and everything like xbox one’s elite controller. Unfortunatlly i cant buy a scuf in my country but other than that, there is no reason to classify ps4 as the more casual console.

      • Slothigans

        That would be cool. Seeing as how cod is partnered with them it should’ve been done by now.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Sony wouldn’t call it “Elite”. And that shit is just so expensive for no reason whatsoever.

        • lunator100hd .

          Of course sony wouldnt call it elite. Expensive or not many ppl would buy it including me.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            They’d get flack for “copying Microsoft”. Upgraded controllers aren’t their thing.

    • Big Al

      Stfu u gaybox prick ko l want your babies

      • Slothigans

        Lol.

    • ccrows

      Can we please (Everyone) all get along with the console bickering BS?

      Both consoles are great, and game on whichever one your friends are on…

      • Slothigans

        They both really are! I’m not bickering some people just can’t handle another ones opinion. ALL I literally said was that I’m not used to seeing ps4 as the competitive console for cod. Jesus people need to relax lol.

      • ToonToons22

        Exactly. Couldn’t agree more. Console wars are for 12-year-old quickscopers and console fanboys. I’ll bet most people on here couldn’t come up with a logical and relevant reason why Xbox or PlayStation is a better console than the other.

    • infidel

      Console warriors=Retards

      Mental retardation=You are not acting like the person your age is supposed to be acting, for example you act like a child when you are a adult. Severity ranges. Bronies are the perfect example of adult mental retardation, or “Menchildren”

      Only 13yr olds, or mentally retarded adults think that owning one console makes you better than another person, or something stupid like that. If you are a kid, then you’re okay. Beats me how your mommy let you play COD, or why you are on this website, but okay. Maybe you should get back to your minecraft or spongebob squarepants instead?

      • Slothigans

        Apparently I hurt another persons feelings. Never once said I was a console warrior. You should learn how to read more. Maybe you wouldn’t get so butt hurt at someone else’s opinion.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          No worries, Sloth. That dude is just crazy. Apparently you have to kiss CoD’s ass in order to be on this forum and you can’t have any negative opinion at all. It’s always a “you suck at it that’s why you don’t like it!” case with him.

          • Slothigans

            Really? Lmao didnt know he was like that. In that case I won’t argue with him. Not worth the effort.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I understand not appreciating negativity for a game that you unjustly like, but he is just simply a prick, and a douche bag.

      • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

        Fanboys and damage controllers = retards.

  • k5berry

    Wait coL is a team again? I don’t follow esports transactions too closely but I thought after they destroyed in Ghosts and won the 2014 CoD Champs they dissolved their CoD team. They’re back?

    • Underdog BO1 FTW!

      because AW is garbage

      • infidel

        You are garbage

        • Underdog BO1 FTW!

          you’re garbage if you support AW

          • infidel

            Just because you have a .25KD in a videogame doesn’t mean it “Sucks” Then again, I am sure that this concept is way beyond you. Useless peasants, why the hell does COD have so many of them?

          • Smayo

            You’re the prime example of a AW fanboy, immediately going for the cheapshot by accusing him for sucking at the game just because he doesn’t like AW, I’ve seen plenty of guys like you last year and I hoped they would’ve crawled back into their holes by now, just accept AW was a huge failure and the majority doesn’t like that heap of shit game…

          • Rav

            Just because you didn’t like it doesn’t mean that it was a failure. Personally, I enjoyed AW and i think many other people also did. But if you are degrading all of us with your filthy tone than you are, no offence, a loser who doesn’t accept other people’s opinions. If you didn’t enjoy the game, fine, I won’t be mean to you. But being mean to other people just because they did enjoy the game, that makes you worse than trash.

          • FazalGaming

            IMO sniping was great in AW, it would be perfect if they has a normal bolt rifle instead of the random ass MORS.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            infidel is being a dick as well and he enjoyed it. Does that make him worse than trash?

          • Smayo

            I’m not the one starting to personally attack anyone who doesn’t like AW, that was mister infidel and his fellow AW fanboys who always reply the same way by accusing people they suck at it, if you like the game that’s fine by me, and if you express yourself in a normal fasion to me or anyone else you won’t hear a bad thing of me towards you, it’s people like mister infidel who makes you respond the way I did because of the immediate personal attack.

            Fact of the matter is; AW is ill recieved by the majority of the CoD fanbase, that is just a fact you can’t be in denial about, you enjoyed it, im happy for you that you didn’t get left with the feeling of wasted 60$, but many of us here did…

          • infidel

            Settle down, keyboard warrior. It’s not my fault you still don’t have speakeasy or obsidian steed. I have half dozen of them, I would give one to you if they let me

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            Yh bc everytime we don t like a game it s bc we suck at playing it.You’re fuckin stupid.

          • infidel

            Well actually, during my 2 years of playing ghosts and 1 year of playing AW, most people who hate it are atrocious at the game, or don’t even own it. So yes, they are. But I can see you got much deeper problems than that. Get educated, read a book, and learn how to spell before you get back to this website.

          • QuickzZ-_-GhosT

            I have a 1.93 k/d in AW but I still hate the game. And I have many motives to hate it since it had several flaws and it wasn t a fun game in general.And you’re the one who needs some education, so the next time you come here you don t start calling people garbage and say pointless things.

          • LLORT

            You played Ghosts for two years? What a waste of a life. One year on AW is suicidal

          • Siftblade

            Well they probably suck because they don’t like the game enough to want to be good at it.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            His logic is fucked up. Me and that guy went back and forth and he’s just simply an ass-kisser for no reason. I can’t stand CoD fanboys like this, where they excuse every little thing and think that everything is perfect and we just suck at it. That’s ignorance talking.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Why does CoD have so many ass-kissers? It sucks, get the fuck over it.

          • Underdog BO1 FTW!

            you’re garbage if you support AW

  • YoungMurf

    Yay I’m so not there! #wannabeprohaha.

  • Mr_ysi42t96

    anyone have difficulty with the connection?

    • lunator100hd .

      Yep, i play with big pings most of the games and of course lag is high from times to times.

      • LovekillerX

        It worked perfectly on Thursday but then it begun again… I hope they investigate it as soon as possible.

        • Guywithbrains

          I noticed the same. I literally had no lag one day and I thought it should stay that way because playing was so smooth.

          But then the game started lagging again. Which is a shame because when it worked a couple of days ago it was so much fun to play it.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            This is my Black Ops 3 experience. I can’t take the bullshit anymore. Getting melted every game isn’t fun (it might be an issue with my aim, in this video’s situation). I’m too awful at it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e0SBgKP7VZw

          • Guywithbrains

            Player aiming with KN-44 vs Gorgon no scoper and latter wins… which is odd because LMGs have really bad no scope accuracy.

            My lag is usually like I shoot my whole magazine to one enemy and I start to get hit markers after shooting a while and I end up being dead.

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            That’s why my KD is so low at 0.88. I have no clue how to get it up. The lobbies are so random. I go from this:

            https://twitter.com/BradyTheGreat1/status/666350340992692224

            To epic Sparrow kills like this. https://twitter.com/BradyTheGreat1/status/666355355517976576

          • ScOott

            U shot him in the arm dude .. That’s not bad hit detection or lag ..

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I could tell that it was an aiming issue, but I still think there’s an issue with the TTK in this game. Even if I shot him in the wrong place, he still killed me in 2 shots with the Gorgon. This is why it’s a mixed experience for me. It’s always a matter of shooting a whole clip into people and dying in 2 bullets (or at least feeling that). It’s definitely a matter of skill (and AW TTK inspiration, and that’s fucking stupid), which is why I’m not
            enjoying it as much as I’d like to, right now. Still not eating my words about this being the best CoD experience in years, yet.

            What about this, however? https://twitter.com/BradyTheGreat1/status/666350340992692224

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            (Part 2) Actually, that last clip had to have been my fault. I don’t know if it’s the DS4 and I’m not used to the controller, but I sometimes have trouble aiming at enemies and I shoot next to them instead of on them, or it’s a recoil/flinch issue. I’m definitely not very good and need to get better.

    • Kobrah

      Fine for me on PS4 in Asutralia

  • spartanelite

    I mean I’d watch but its on ps4 so thanks but no thanks I’ll just look up who wins after

    • Kobrah

      K.

    • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

      Why the fuck should that matter? I’m not going to watch something Xbox One-related because it has Xbox branding all over the place and I don’t like the brand all that much. That’s fanboyism.

      • J4MES

        I think that’s just typical modern day fanboy ethics which is a shame.

    • Keshav Bhat

      Why does system even matter? Because Activision is taking it in their own hands with ESL as partner, we probably won’t even see PS4 logos. We saw Xbox One logos everywhere for last three years. I don’t get why platform even matters?

      • spartanelite

        Because I don’t want to see anything at all related to that, its too bad but oh well like I said I’ll just look it up after

        • KK5

          Why not?

        • Tony Beast

          People like you give COD a bad name to every other eSport out there.

          • spartanelite

            How? I don’t see how,it’s on ps4 a bandwagon of a console don’t want to see because it on there and that’s just to bad I care who’s playing but its on that so oh well I’ll just look it up later

      • spartanelite

        Because I don’t care to see any thing related to them in any way
