    Nah

  • GinsuVictim

    I’ve heard people say the current gen version has terrible bot AI. The last gen version is all I’ve played and it’s the worst the series has had on those systems. Even the BO1 bots, the very first ones, are miles better.

  • Mick

    Nah bruh fix the Hellstrom. Make it exactly like how it was back in the beta. Also, FIX THE SCRUB BASED MATCHMAKING! :/

    • spartanelite

      What’s wrong wt the hellstorm?

      • jordanxbrookes

        It’s shit.

        • spartanelite

          Is it really? How?

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            Probably the blast radius.

          • Mick

            The blast radius sucks and the missles are not very accurate. I saw a video on YouTube that some guy got all hitmarkers on the Hellstorm and they guy didn’t even have flak jacket. That should not happen.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Did you seriously ask how? Just earn it and you’ll see how.

          • spartanelite

            I mean obviously I mean I get doubles and 4-5 mans with that occasion nothing

      • Mick

        Have you not used it since the beta? It’s ass. I’d rather run the HC-XD to be honest.

    • ItzSikh

      can u define scrub based matchmaking since im confused

      • When the best player in the lobby (or one of the better players) gets put on a team with kids who go 5-32. It’s up to the good player to try and carry his entire team because not only do they suck, but they most likely don’t play the objective as well. Happens to me all the time.

        • LovekillerX

          It shouldn’t be like that. There should be fair teams not just god level players versus thumbless noobs or this scrub based matchmaking.

          • TheCursedShank

            Never knew about this problem, I normally get good teams around 80% of the time.

          • [EV] BLISS

            You sure you’re not playing hello kitty?

        • Tuby

          I dont like to carry my team all the time

      • jordanxbrookes

        It’s like Skill Based Matchmaking, but rather than the enemy team being super sweaty, you get paired with thumbless teammates who cost you matches.

        • LovekillerX

          I always have to backup crappy teammates and I’m being called a c*nt because I leave the match. I’m not going to support teammates that aren’t supporting me (they feed enemies).

          • Mick

            I would do the same. I dont bother if my team doesn’t make an effort to actually try. I’ll just leave the game.

          • LovekillerX

            Well couple of days ago I played a domination match where enemy triple capped us from the beginning and teammates died all the time. All I saw was enemy in the killfeed and three flags held by enemy. Not a single teammate helped me to capture B and sky was full of H.A.T.Rs and wraiths… ^_^

            I actually shot them down just to see another wraith and H.A.T.R…

          • Mick

            Lol I would’ve left long time ago. Like I said I don’t bother

          • Capten ermirica

            Mandy

          • Guywithbrains

            My teammates have to earn my help. If they don’t help me they shouldn’t expect me to help them.

            But if players work as a team even if enemy is winning then I am ready to fight back. But often it goes like this: I am going to window and expecting my teammates behind me to back me up. Suddenly I see skulls appearing (they die) and then I die. And of course enemy has the B flag.

            Luckily there is an option to leave without a penalty. I don’t pay 70 euros for a game to just get pubstomped by wannabe pros (hint: actual pros play against good players and not kids with no thumbs).

          • Tuby

            Probally they dont need your help at all lol

          • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

            I had the same logic during Advanced Warfare. I’m not playing any objectives unless they fix the SBMM and thumbless teammates.

          • jordanxbrookes

            Same bro. Most of the time I just leave matches because I cba to carry my teammates. Why should I have a bad time because my teammates have never played an FPS game.

        • ItzSikh

          cheers but wasn’t that the same in MW2 or am I wrong

          • jordanxbrookes

            In Modern Warfare 2, everyone was of random skill. This game, literally 4 out of 5 teammates have never played Call of Duty before.

        • Yeah Vahn still hasn’t responded to me about those photos I send. (I know Vahn would never respond) He better fix the SBMM fast.

      • Mick

        The game always pair you up with shit players on your team. For example, lately I’ve been playing the Chaos Moshpit playlist and whenever I play Nuketown Dom, Hardpoint, or whatever, I get teamed up with shit teammates. It’s very frustrating as a solo player. Everytime I die, my team is always back at the spawn, as if they never moved. I tend to blame my teammates more than anything on this game because I feel like my team just doesn’t want to make an effort to push out of our spawn. Either it’s just me, or this matchmaking system is very weird.

        • [EV] BLISS

          I feel you bro!

    • TDawg

      This! I play solo and get all the shit people in the lobby against all the people who know what they’re doing.

      • GinsuVictim

        When playing solo, you get what you get. Find a team or continue to be disappointed.

        • Mick

          Lol typical guy. You sound like one of those MLG faggatrons. Not everybody can party up with friends/people when they’re actually doing stuff in the real world. Not everybody has time to sit their asses down and find a squad of teammates. But I don’t expect a person like you to understand whatsoever.

          • Duke of hazard

            Oh wow. No need to be a fuckboy about it.

          • Mick

            He made his post sound like a asshole when I read it. I just misread it. My bad.

          • GinsuVictim

            Yeah, plenty of stuff sounds one way in your head and totally different typed out.

          • Mick

            That’s what’s so hard about explaining stuff typed out. You don’t know how that person (in this situation me for example) will take it. But whateves.

          • GinsuVictim

            I don’t even have a team anymore (console split). I was stating the obvious.

          • Mick

            Oh my b. I misread your whole post then. When I read it, I thought you were sounded like one of those trolls on here who like to bash people who have difficulties. I thought you were being an asshole.

          • GinsuVictim

            It’s cool, I can easily be an asshole.

          • Mick

            (:

          • Capten ermirica

            youre shit that’s your problem. Hello, I’m the site asshole?

        • KK5

          I’m with you on this.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          The matchmaking logic makes no sense. Why aren’t the enemies playing against noobs? Oh wait… Yeah… Because I’m a noob…

      • Mick

        On top of that, the enemy team always ends up with a person that’s a prestige or 2 ahead of me and I have to suffer.

        • Tuby

          Prestige dont say mething about skill my friend. However you could say that somebody who is higher prestige would be better. But thats not always the case.

          • Mick

            I would assume if they are a higher prestige than me they would have more experience than me, no? If I see a higher prestiger than me, whether he/she is a prestige or 2 ahead then I’m not even gonna bother with that person.

          • GinsuVictim

            I don’t pay attention to prestige emblems. I don’t even know the order of them anyway.

          • Mick

            I don’t know either. All I know is if I’ve never seen that prestige emblem before I ain’t playing against them.

          • GinsuVictim

            Plenty of scrubs prestiging. Just play and see how the match goes.

          • YoungMurf

            You could look at it that way and think ‘they must be good to be a higher prestige’ but I look at it like they have played it longer, which doesn’t necessarily mean they are better.

          • Mick

            Truth

          • Tuby

            Agreed about experience so they have to be better. But you still have high prestige with low skills. I like to prestige. But I havnt in mfw 3 and play that game for about 20 days and like to see the high prestige guys rage quite when I owned my moabs

          • Capten ermirica

            That’s not the attitude Nancy

  • Ryumoau

    I hope this event gets streamed on ps4 somewhere. Maybe through the twitch app.

  • offth ewall

    Is this GSC scripting for BO3 AI really that different than previous
    CODs? Was the pathnode system removed and everything is done from
    tag_eye bulletrace’s now or something? Looking forward to hearing what
    they have to say since it sounds like BO3 modding will be drastically different compared to WAW modding. At least the CSC/GSC script syntax should still be the same lol.

  • That’s less than an hour away from where I live. I should see if I can go, as it would be a pretty cool experience.

  • AZIAN PERSON MAN

    I go 49-2 on a game of TDM, the 2nd best player on my team goes 3-17, the rest have absolutely no kills with double digit deaths. We lose 52-75. That people is the definition of Scrub Based Matchmaking.

    • Tuby

      Nobody cares

  • iext23

    If he starts talking about a new fish AI…
