      Keshav is probably clenching his teeth right now looking at his comments Ya’all better respek his name.

    • Travis Jones

      Full of people that strafe around every corner

      • JuttyCheeks

        What does this even mean? Walk around corners? Lol

        • Travis Jones

          Means that they aim and jump around corners so you dont even stand a chance

          • BradyAlucard

            Right? How is that “skillful” in anyway? Lol. More like playing like a bitch.

          • Former

            Or…playing smart? Are you saying if you knew an enemy was around a corner you’d just mosey on without aiming in? Retard alert.

          • BradyAlucard

            Playing smart? Idiot, it’s annoying and frustrating to play against. “Playing smart” in a casual game? LOL. “Retard alert”. Grow up.

          • Former

            It’s only annoying and frustrating to people who aren’t good enough to counter it. Don’t blame another person’s movement skill on them. Only someone bad at the game would call CoD casual. It’s okay, you can admit it.

          • BradyAlucard

            No, moron, CoC is FACTUALLY casual. Your stupid “competitive” bullshit doesn’t change that. Get over it. Movement skill? Who wants to play against it? I’m just saying that it’s not fun on the opposite end *because there’s no counter to it*. Period.

          • Former

            If you can’t handle someone using the movement to his/her best advantage, then you really shouldn’t be playing the game, or at the very least, shouldn’t be complaining. Nobody wants to go against a headglitch, yet pretty much EVERY CoD has tons of them, and you still play the game. Curious how that works.

          • BradyAlucard

            CoD** my bad, that’s embarrassing

            It’s funny how that DOES work, *because I paid $80 for the game*, and your ignorant ass is telling me to just simply stop playing it. News flash, that is EXACTLY why people complain. I didn’t even make a big deal about it, I just said it’s annoying and frustrating, because it is.

          • Former

            You can settle down with the name-calling, Timmy. All I’m saying is that you’re making excuses for getting out-maneuvered. Simple as that.

          • BradyAlucard

            Nah, I won’t, since you were the one who insulted me, so you had it coming, “Timmy”. How are they excuses? Because they’re not. By your logic, are you not making excuses? Oh the irony.

          • Former

            Saying the person who out-maneuvered you is “playing like a bitch” is a pretty clear-cut excuse.

          • BradyAlucard

            No, that’s not an excuse, you moron. We are all annoyed by specific playstyles.

          • Former

            You are excusing your death for him playing “like a bitch” when he is just, in fact, better than you. Pre-aiming around a corner is like CoD 101 so I’d like to know just how shit you are to be “frustrated” by it.

          • BradyAlucard

            I only experience of against the super tryhards. The jumping screws with the camera angles, so it’s impossible to counter it. Call of Duty shouldnt do advanced movement after IW because the servers can’t keep up.

          • Former

            So be angry at the developers, not the player. Being resourceful with the given abilities of the game is just being intelligent. Try it some time.

          • BradyAlucard

            The players abuse said “given abilities of the game”. Try being intelligent, you say? Says the moron who thinks Call of Duty isn’t casual. Again, the irony. Call of Duty is so hardcore!

          • Former

            Casual is a subjective term. There are casual players, not casual games. I could play CSGO once a week with friends, and I’d probably consider it casual. However, pro CSGO players would not. Wrap your head around that concept, buddy.

          • BradyAlucard

            You don’t know what you’re talking about, “buddy”. It’s a fact that CoD is a casual game. That’s what it was made for and also what it was always intended to be. Hardcore players can exist, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not playing a casual game. Get over it.

          • Former

            If CoD is casual, then how would someone get so worked up over someone having superior movement than he has? I’d really love an explanation for that one.

            CoD was made for casual players…that’s pretty obvious. However, those “casual” players are the ones that go 2-18 every game while I carry them in my backpack.

          • Guest

            Because he sucks ass. Only terrible players use terms like “tryhard”. Spending $80 on a game and being all through this article doesn’t sound “casual” to me

          • Former

            Pretty much…It’s what bad players say when their backs are against the wall…”Oh I know! He’s just a try hard! That’s why he’s killing me!”…No, Timmy, it’s because you can’t aim straight.

          • JuttyCheeks

            I know man I can’t they are so bad

          • BradyAlucard

            How stupid can you be? How does that determine what a casual game is and what it isn’t? You want to talk intelligence? It’s still casual because the game is designed as such, but there are a few things that tarnish the casual aspects of the game, like Black Ops 3’s flawed team-balancing/SBMM(don’t even try to deny it).

            Casual players aren’t determined by their skilp level. How about the tryhards late at night playing after work, and that’s the only time they play? Your definition of “casual” is fucked.

          • Former

            Gamebattles, online tournaments, LAN tournaments for the past decade worth over several million in prize pools…Does that sound casual? Last time I checked, Minecraft (the most casual game on Earth) doesn’t have leaderboards or ranking. I guess you’re forgetting that aspect of CoD.

          • BradyAlucard

            No, I didn’t forget about that aspect of CoD, because I don’t give a fuck about it. I’m talking about the ACTUAL game.

            And I’ll repeat myself; you’re wrong, there are definitely
            casual games, and games that are made more casual down the line. CoD at its CORE is casual, that’s a fact, get over it. You assume shit like an idiot as if youve actualy seen me play? Again, fuck off with wanting “intelligence” and “knowledge” when you cant even be logical yourself. CoD is also not a competitive game in the slightest, you think the idiots in MLG suddenly turned CoD hardcore? Now that we see where you stand… There’s a reason why competitive CoD is heavily criticized by the majority of fans, and you indirectly stated why.

            That’s not why I pay $60 for CoD, I’ll tell you that. It’s called fun. It’s not fun being in a lobby full of tryhards that ruin my experience. I don’t give a shit whether you think I’m shit or not, because it factually doesn’t matter unless you force it to. End of.

          • Former

            Whether you give a fuck about it or not, it exists, and it is the ACTUAL game, played at a higher level.

            Competitive CoD is criticized by casual PLAYERS, like yourself. (Clearly you are casual if you think the entire game is).

            Also, your idea of fun is different than another’s! {WOAH, Someone has a different opinion than me!??} Some people only have fun competing! Other people don’t want to invest the time in learning how to compete so they play casually.

            I never called you “shit”? I’m simply observing the points you’re making and making a generalization that you don’t know about anything other than pubs, which is perfectly fine. That’s why I’m here to educate you.

          • BradyAlucard

            If “playing at a higher level” means playing half a game, then it is not the ACTUAL game.

            I’m casual when it comes to CoD, yeah. As for your casual vs competitive players statement, it depends. Fun can be an objective term, like there being two different experiences. Doesn’t mean the entire game should be affected by you, the VAST minority of the community. Playing CoD competitively arguably doesn’t even exist, because it never was meant to be played in that manner, hence “competitive” CoD slowly starting to die off. I don’t mind other gamers’ opinions until they say stupid outlandish shit and wanting someone to act like their own definition of intelligent at the same time.

            I know plenty, so you will never educate shit. Again, knowing the type of player you are, it doesn’t need to get much further. The point is is that I only care about the actual game and will always only care about the actual game, so I will never play in a manner that the minority wants me to. The discussion was NOT about MLG, nor was I even talking about MLG in my comment. But since we’re going by your personal preference and only such, then I think we’re done, here.

          • Former

            You keep hanging on the “CoD wasn’t made for comp., it was made to be casual, etc.” I agree. However, you can easily make any FPS competitive by setting up rules and regulations. Also, I don’t know where you’re getting “half a game” from. Are you referring to the limited game modes? Elaborate.

            Your last paragraph is implying that I’m telling you to conform to using the boost movement or something. Never once said that. I simply said you can’t complain when someone obviously out plays you. But then you went on a rant about how the game is casual, so I brought up evidence as to why it isn’t.

            Overall, you seem very trapped in the notion that a game cannot go beyond what it was “intended” for. With that close-minded approach to gaming, it’s no wonder you think CoD is ALWAYS casual.

          • Guest

            Game is so casual yet he’s enraged and salty af writing novels every time he replies to you. People like him are the worst kind of COD player. He’s on every article on a COD website just talking shit. And if that wasn’t enough he can’t just accept defeat and move on. Guaranteed he sends messages calling people N words and all types of slurs after they finish kicking his ass on this “casual” game. Casual yet he appears to be here more than the Moderators are. What a salty fruitcake

          • Former

            Lmao. I think he’s just so dumbfounded at the idea that someone is better than him. He’s so casual, he thinks everyone should play at his noobish level.

          • Guest

            If someone wanted literally NO competition at all they wouldn’t come online at all. They’d simply play story mode or just against bots. You can’t play online against people from all over with different experience levels and intentions then when you don’t perform well come them “tryhards” and then acting like the game isn’t meant for competition or skill when that’s actually the entire point of online multiplayer games to begin with. I bet “tryhards” spend 1/5 the amount of time he does online talking about COD.

          • You don’t know anything about me you fucking troll. Hop off Activision’s dick. Videogames are casual. I can comment here as much as I please. Sorry if you expect everyone to lick COD’s asshole like you and these other fucking pathetic retards.

          • You’re a fucking shill. Please quit being a fucking retard

          • Former

            Lol. Can’t make a meaningful point so resorts to insults. That’s cute. πŸ™‚

          • BradyAlucard

            skill* level.

          • JuttyCheeks

            You are absolutely fucking retarded and so so bad I can’t take any of you guys seriously. You’re all “casual” but spend your pathetic lives trolling a fucking Call of Duty website. It’s an embarassment. Then when people defend something with valid points that you are bashing for no reason, you get butthurt. You, Scoot, and the other scum just come here to talk shit and gas your ego behind a keyboard, then jerk each other off with upvotes. And the funniest part is, none of you have any idea what you’re talking about and you are 100% terrible at the game. So if you need to boost your confidence by talking shit behind a keyboard all day for no reason that’s fine, just try and keep your toxic cancer out of this communtty. You don’t want to hear about it? Don’t click on the article. Simple as that

          • BradyAlucard

            LOL you’re fucking pathetic. You call ME a troll? Typical. Look up the definition of a troll then come back. I don’t care that you don’t like what I say, nor do I care how popular and/or unpopular my opinion is. What valid point? I haven’t seen one from you, that’s for sure. As if “being terrible” at a game fucking matters. I don’t know what I’m talking about? That’s funny, coming from some pathetic moron who wants valid arguments yet lacks the capacity to have one himself, yet resorts to flaming and only flaming. Don’t tell me what to do; what I find more “cancerous” are assholes like you who can only flame people instead of actually contributing and giving your opinion. Perhaps you should try that first. This website is not for dickriders like yourself, it’s about opinions and discussions. I don’t give a shit if you don’t like my opinions, then maybe you should have disagreed like a normal person. Instead, you go and write a troll reply, being part of the reason as to why this community is toxic. Thanks but no thanks for your “contribution”.

          • JuttyCheeks

            “Playing smart? Idiot, it’s annoying and frustrating to play against. “Playing smart” in a casual game? LOL. “Retard alert”. Grow up.”

            You’re right, I don’t know how the community would thrive without your intellect, thorough insight, and incredible opinions that you grace the site with. It’s humorous because I responded to your comment as you always comment. The difference is I called you out and you got all upset. I instantly become a dickrider because you know nothing about Call of Duty and I called you on your bullshit. You’re welcome for my contribution, “I don’t care that you don’t like what I say, nor do I care how popular and/or unpopular my opinion is.”

          • BradyAlucard

            You havent “called anyone out”. That takes intellect and logic. You don’t know me, so you can’t act like me. Keep grasping at straws since that’s the only thing that you trolls can do, though. But please, share with us the stroke of GENIUS that is your “Call of Duty” knowledge, you fucking shill.

          • Fuck you nigger. No one cares about you sweaty fucking tryhards. COD is a casual game and thus skill does not exist. You trolls need to come harder and stop being a corporate slave.

          • JuttyCheeks

            Wow, love the racism. Yes it is a casual game, but a skill gap very much exists. You’re just really bad. I’m not a corporate slave to Activision at all. I hate Activision. So if you could please elaborate on that, then that would be great. Thanks

          • Guest

            Wow what an asshole. There is no elaboration. In this topic all he has used is cliche insults. Calling people “tryhards”, “trolls”, “morons”, now the N word and then a “corporate slave”. Like what the hell does telling him he sucks have to do with our opinion of COD’s publisher? The way he posts on this website you’d think he is a mod or a “website slave”

          • Guest

            What discussions or opinions are you really bringing? You’re just a generic, “COD sucks, too many tryhards” troll. All your doing is insulting people. While it’s never a good idea to just dickride a game what is the point of doing the exact opposite? You don’t dickride the game you just talk shit about people all day apparently and anyone that is better than you somehow isn’t better than you… Even the ultimate dickride Tmartn at least gets paid to suck dick and may actually somewhat enjoy COD. What are you getting paid to sound like some bitter ex wife all day? You’re spending more time here than a dickrider would. Do you have no other hobbies or games to play? What a fucking loser.

          • JuttyCheeks

            Thanks for the backup homie lol these kids aren’t even worth it. It’s frustrating and annoying to deal with, I could argue all day but they just won’t see it.

          • Guest

            Look how much he is here. He comments more than anyone. He is the epitome of what a lot of COD players are. He is salty, calling people dickriders like we give two shits about Activision’s greedy asses. When you hop online you’re doing so becuase you want some level of competition and something a little more human than playing bots. Sounds like he’s a pussy and can’t adjust to how fast the game is so he wants to call people trolls and dickriders ain’t pretend like he is incapable of being bad. Lame ass tries to come off like he’s smart yet he uses “troll, tryhard, dickrider, retard” just like any 13 year old would. He legit has to have a terrible life to spend most of his days arguing on a COD news site.

          • Guest

            First he says he paid $80 now it’s $60 lol. As if since he paid money he is entitled to not get his ass kicked. Yet all the others that paid $60+ don’t have the right to kick his ass.

          • BradyAlucard

            You don’t know me, so quit acting like it, you corporate slave. I’m a loser for having a different, more objective opinion than you? Keep dreaming. Complaining about the $60 game that I got and the poor experience that I get? Gasp!! Burn him at the stake!! Cry me a fucking river.

          • Guest

            Calling someone a “retard” and then telling them to grow up perfectly sums up how big of a hypocritical peace of shit you are. You ARE the COD community basically. Full of people who can’t just take their Ls like an adult and move on to something is. You just wanna come online and bitch and insult people all day yet want to call others toxic. You have so many comments so I’m sure you’ve given your opinion a few 100s of times. So you’ve made your contribution. You’re salty af and only here to talk shit. How about you take your own advice and grown up.

          • BradyAlucard

            You don’t know me, asshole, but go ahead and keep grasping at straws. Stop copying what I said and think for yourself, because the bullshit that you spew is the epitome of irony. Since when have I insulted someone when I wasn’t provoked? Time for you to stop trolling and, as I stated, grow up. You’re making a big deal out of nothing.

          • Guest

            Guaranteed most of these losers are terrible at the actual game despite having 6+ years of COD experience and 50+ hours per week of time invested in reading, watching or bitching about COD. People who truly treat COD as a casual game play it a few hours a week, grind then when they get tired of it or game gets frustrating they move on and play the 100s of other games that exist. But no,why move on when you can just keep talking shit. I’ve also never seen someone that big of a pussy then just say that the superior players are tryhards but goes a step further to say the game wasn’t meant for various levels of skills. It was meant for all players to be equally shitty.

          • JuttyCheeks

            Yeahh predicting enemies and outgunning you takes no skill, you’re right.

    • jordanxbrookes

      Inb4 Keshav says how great this opportunity is for Arena and how eSports is great in CoD lmao.

      Comp players are not wannabe pro players…no one decent plays Arena either

        No one decent? Well, I guess you’d never lose then with that attitude. Oh wait, you probably never play it.

      Winning a game of Arena is 10x more satisfying than pubstomping kids w/out thumbs. Not about being “pro” or “MLG”

    • Kobrah

      I played arena a while ago. Full of noobs from what I saw. I have a 3.45 k/d in it and about a 1.5 in reg pubs. Won all 3 games by heaps too

  • Element115Will

    Lame. Idgaf about Arena, shoulda made it for all modes, not just arena, I aint steppin in that shit.

    • Kobrah

      That is exactly the reason they only put it in Arena. To encourage people who would not normally play it to give it a go

  • TheDemonOfHate

    #GFuelWeekend #BurnCalories 1 weekend won’t turn your pro.

    All arena is is a sweaty laggy version of the real game with no reason to play it over the normal game whatsoever

      Really?? What mode are you playing?? Cause whenever I play arena, my teammates are always the worst most retarded kids in cod history

      • BradyAlucard

        I’ll play it, then. Whatevs apparently I’m a “bad player” to the fanboy trolls on this site, anyway.

      Actually, there’s less connection issues in Arena. Also, people who want competition play it. Pubstomping gets boring after a while.

  • Aidan

    is this a joke?

  • jordanxbrookes

    Who tf plays Arena? Apart from the few MLG wannabes, surely you want to give it to the majority of your players instead of Juan, Pablo and Jose from Puerto Rico on their Dial-Up connection.

    • Drank Bleach

      Hey! Respek the Puerto Ricans.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Lol.

    • N8iv

      No one plays Arena, even wannabe MLG players stay away from that dreadful playlist.

      • BradyAlucard

        But they inspired the said “dreadful” playlist…

    • ToonToons22

      To be fair, I see more Mexicans on the Arena playlist than Puerto Ricans.

      • jordanxbrookes

        I could’ve said Mexicans but it sounded too stereotypical lol

    • Retarded gamer

      I have played Arena for the first time this week and have 8 hours played. Its excellent if you have a decent team. Stop bitching, dont play it if you dont like it. Simple as that.

      • jordanxbrookes

        Right because common sense of having 2XP where the majority of the players play is now considered “bitching”. Yeah sure, whatever you say.

        • ScOott

          Dude he is a self proclaimed “retarded gamer” he doesn’t understand what common sense is..

          Where are all these buthurt guys coming from in recent articles anyway, ci is starting to get over run with fagits..

          • Retarded gamer

            There is clearly a reason why arena got exclusively double xp; mlg anaheim. This is the first time so what is the problem? Im not butthurt, I can play arena and pub just fine but guess you guys cant.

          • ScOott

            No problem, apart from the people who hate anything MLG don’t get double xp, but even that’s not so much of a problem as bo3 leveling up system to 1000 is ridiculous and unachievable for the average jo in the year we have till the next game.

            My comment was not exactly directed at u, u seem kewl I’m just getting bord of people trying to give opinions and people be like “stop Bitching”

            “ur a fucking idiot for not hating the next game we know nothing about”

            *insert insult after insult after insult until my point no longer makes sense here * if u have a different opinion to me

          • Former

            Will you anti-Arena kids shut up? There’s a playlist in pubs with double xp, if you haven’t noticed yet. There ya go, now you aren’t forced to play people with thumbs.

    Any excuse to get more kids to play double xp doesn’t change the fact the game has been broken since release. I’ve never been in a lobby without at least one lagging scumbag since November

    • Kobrah

      That hardly breaks a game

  • J4MES

    Meh, too busy playing Overwatch which is fun.

  • Sentinel

    Where’s the new PS4K along with the game bundle?

  • Eriko

    They should replace arena with promod

  • BawjawzMcGraw

    Great, now we’ll have people trying to rank up shitty weapons in Arena.

  • Gamerazor247

    Who the fuck plays Arena, why would Treyarch endorse this!? All it is, is bullshit TTK and sweaty ackasses who think they’re good for using the VMP and M8 24/7.

    Does it come with a free bucket and towel

  • Why has there not been double double on multiplayer as of yet wow this game is just getting messed up every time more and more wow this game not only is the black market all screwed up but instead of giving everyone double xp and double weapon xp they do it only for arena wow that is so messed up we have not gotten double double in a while in Multiplayer I don’t know what is Treyarch and Activision thinking of wow

  • When they do Double xp they should just do it for everyone instead of like now just in Arena for all the try hards and wannabe pro’s. They should just do double xp for multiplayer, arean and zombies simple like that everyone can get some Double xp all around not just a certain game mode. Wow I am a season pass holder and we are just getting shitted on this year for real. We have not gotten anything getting this season pass so actually it’s not even worth buying the season pass any longer. All we got was one weapons bribe one time and that is it and I did not et nothing but a bat incredible, worthless.

  • Justin Smith
