According to images leaked via early streams, which show off Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare’s private match settings, the game features the ability to disable double jumps and wall running in private match mode in the game.

This feature, thus far, is exclusive to Private Matches. No mention of a possible ‘boots on the ground’ online playlist has been announced. Advanced Warfare, the 2014 Call of Duty title, had a Traditional Playlist, but was not that populated since majority of maps in that title required the exo-jumps.

Many users across forums are noting the importance of this feature in private matches: the possibility of disabling for esports. Although this is highly unlikely, considering Activision has been forcing esports players to try and play as similar to public (as evident by Black Ops 3’s “base” bans). Nevertheless, this feature does exist, and what the future may hold is not clear.

    So now the game doesn’t even know what it wants to be.

      They’re just providing more options for competition. Nothing more, nothing less.

        Competition in a casual game?

        • Former

          Yes. It exists. It’s past time you get over it, bud.

          • BradyAlucard

            Just because it exists doesn’t mean I need to get over it, and I won’t. I’ll speak out against it because it does not belong in Call of Duty. End of, I don’t care what controversies I may have sparked with that statement.

        • Qaotik

          Why not? Melee is like that, and that game has been relevant for 15 years with a great competitive scene

          • BradyAlucard

            I’ll let that competitive scene thrive, then. I don’t care about competitive as long as it doesn’t affect me, but it does in CoD. I don’t agree with the notion that competitive gaming should continue to exist but then again I understand that those who do like it would not want me to ruin their enjoyment. But they have no right to influence public matches, and they have and if we continue letting it happen they always will.

        • RdJokr

          Bro, it’s high time you get rid of this “COD is only for casuals” mindset. It’s a game catered to casuals, but there is room for competitive. Competitive gaming is here to stay, whether you like it or not.

          • BradyAlucard

            Respectfully, that doesn’t excuse anything. I simply respectfully disagree with the notion that skill has to exist in online Multiplayer. I just like having fun without the limitations that competitive brings. Now we’re starting to worry about things like balance when that’ll just come naturally. A playlist exists for those who want to play it.

            “It’s a game catered to casuals, but there is room for competitive”

            No, there isn’t, not in regards to public matches. Sure you’ll have players like us who are experienced, but what if I wanted to play a casual game and not worry about the lobbies I’m in?

          • Former

            This article is strictly about a private match setting, and you’re over here whining about competition in public matches? You’re completely off-topic and clearly just jump at any chance to bash competitive. Get a grip.

          • BradyAlucard

            If that’s even remotely the case, then competitive deserves it. I don’t have to “get a grip”, you completely went against your ‘point’ that “this article is strictly about a private match setting” when you, in a vaguely sense, stated “They’re just providing more options for competition. Nothing more, nothing less”, in which I interpret as you stating that CoD is competitive in a general sense, which is factually wrong and asinine. You mentioned it before I did.

          • Former

            Lol. Look at you stretching my words in order to make it seem like you’re not totally out of place. “If that’s even remotely the case” Why don’t you read the damn title of the article you’re whining on, and you would know.

            Let’s be perfectly honest with each other. You saw the word “competitive”, so you immediately started foaming at the mouth ready to spew your unwarranted hate towards the entire concept of competitive gaming, even if it’s just a private match setting which doesn’t affect you AT ALL.

          • BradyAlucard

            “Look at you stretching my words in order to make it seem like you’re not totally out of place”

            *Name an example so that I know what you’re talking about*. You should know that saying words like “competition” just screams a reply from me.

            “Why don’t you read the damn title of the article you’re whining on, and you would know”

            How would I know if you’re being vague? “Whining”? Oh come on grow up with that nonsense lol, just because I have a valid, objective concern and you’re upset because I criticized something that’s as sensitive as the cancerous competitive environment doesn’t mean you get to throw childish insults for having a different opinion than I do. Again, the word “competition” is key.

            “Let’s be perfectly honest with each other”

            I’m always honest.

            “You saw the word “competitive,” so you immediately started foaming at the mouth ready to spew your unwarranted hate towards the entire concept of competitive gaming”

            That’s half-true. Again, I saw the word “competition” and immediately replied because it was a ludicrous statement and I’ve seen your previous comments, but that doesn’t mean that it was “unwarranted hate”, sure I’m completely against “the entire concept of competitive gaming”, but I have valid, objective reasons so therefore it’s not “unwarranted hate”.

            “even if we were strictly speaking about a private match setting which doesn’t affect you in any way, shape, or form”

            You’re wrong, it can affect me, as someone who is completely against competitive. If you want competitive options in Private Matches, then it should only be in the competitive playlist. Nobody benefits from CoDcaster except competitive players, so why would it be in the general Multiplayer’s Private Matches? It sounds like a fair compromise and it wouldn’t take much work. Is it the end of the world? No, it’s just a suggestion.

          • Former

            Wow. You’re actually delusional. You just said a PRIVATE MATCH OPTION affects you. Lmfao. I can’t argue with someone who is this thick.

          • BradyAlucard

            “Wow. You’re actually delusional”

            Nah. I just don’t like competitive.

            “You just said a PRIVATE MATCH OPTION (keyword: PRIVATE) affects your gaming experience”

            I don’t see what would be wrong with that, especially since adding competitive rule sets to competitive modes only was just a thought. A suggestion. It really depends on what the option is. How would it not affect anything? We need to look at both sides here.

            “Please just stop trying dude…It’s so embarrassing”

            I’ll do whatever it takes to let my opinion about competitive gaming be known so with all due respect I’ll never stop. As long as it’s a respectful I don’t see the embarrassment.

          • Former

            “I’ll never stop” – Every delusional person ever.

          • RdJokr

            It’s human nature to be competitive, with or without an actual preference of the game toward competitive. Even if COD doesn’t have a competitive mode at this point, tryhards will still be a thing.

          • BradyAlucard

            My point is is that tryhards wouldn’t be a thing if the developers didn’t put such an emphasis on things like SBMM. Just because you say that we’re competitive in nature doesn’t mean that games need to be. There will be some things that occur naturally, but being forced to play a certain why thanks to the SBMM in AW and BO3 is not fun. I do remember being competitive in arcades, but that’s pretty much it and it’s completely different. And I think we’re naturally cooperative, not competitive in terms of gaming, but we do like competing with each other (therefore we’re both cooperative and cooperative, in a gaming sense, I think we’re all mostly cooperative) and there’s nothing wrong with very, very slight competition. It’s always fun to best your friends, I did so when I was hugely into quickscoping during MW2.

          • RdJokr

            It’s just natural progression. It starts with besting your friends, then it comes to topping everyone else in the lobby, then from the lobby to everyone else. I’m not saying everyone is like that, but many are.

            Also let’s not forget, the competitive scene of COD actually started out first on PC when COD4 ProMod was a thing. And that was a fan-initiated idea, not dev idea. So all this traces back to us wanting things to get competitive.

          • BradyAlucard

            “It’s just natural progression. It starts with besting your friends, then it comes to topping everyone else in the lobby, then from the lobby to everyone else”

            Then that should only stay in Private Matches, because that’s why they exist. Everyone should have a shot at at least being successful when they’re playing, because who wants to play against sweats? It’s not like games need to be fair, but that’s literally unfair. I see that all the time in BO3 and I’ve had enough. And I’m aware of where the competitive scene “started”, but then again that wasn’t shoe-horned into the entire experience unlike recent games and made those respective games the worst in the entire series, that’s the difference.

            “So all this traces back to us wanting things to get competitive”

            The issue is that that’s a minority, so why ruin it for everyone else? Nobody who is rational and wants a fun, enjoyable experience would ever want a game that’s uber tryhard and competitive. We’ve already experienced that in 3 CoD games (BO2, AW, and BO3), and they were all travesties.

  • This needs to be in infection honestly. Boosting kinda ruins infection

    • jordanxbrookes

      I agree with this. Infected in AW was literally all about bunny hopping around the map and it ruined the experience of the mode.

      • GinsuVictim

        It might as well have not existed in AW. It was the wrong game for that mode. MW3 did it right the first time.

    • Donald Clinton

      Did you read that post about Infected on /r/infinitewarfare?

    • BradyAlucard

      I agree. But you guys all deserve a traditional playlist, not just in Infected.

  • Eddie Tupy

    more options are always good

  • GinsuVictim

    “Advanced Warfare, the 2014 Call of Duty title, had a Traditional Playlist, but was not that populated since majority of maps in that title required the exo-jumps”

    They had ladders. The classic mode had a lot of players, but they switched it to a moshpit and people hate that.

    • Aidan

      Yeah, but even though there were ladders, the maps didn’t really play that well.

      • BradyAlucard

        I mean… forcing players to play in Mosh Pit is definitely the main reason why nobody played it. It’s like Sledgehammer is full of morons (I know Reisdorf is one, all he and Sledgehammer cared about was competitive).

    • Jon

      Ladders for maybe 10% of the places you could exo jump to.

    • Was going to say that. They were seriously switched on with AW adding the classic playlist and I used to play it often. It was really useful in getting some of the camo unlocks like the Crossbow where it was a constant struggle with people boost strafing. It wasn’t perfect, but at least they considered the fanbase enough to offer an alternative to the new mechanics

    • BradyAlucard

      Mosh Pit was put into the playlist because of the fact that that game had the biggest emphasis on competitive, hence why it sucked so much. They just had their priorities completely wrong.

  • They should have a traditional playlist with only infected, tdm, domination, snd, drop zone and hardpoint/kill confirmed

    • BradyAlucard

      Why haven’t you applied at Infinity Ward yet?

  • Sentinel

    More like, feature to disable the cry babies who had complained about shit like this in the past months, yeah we know who you are.

    • BradyAlucard

      Genuinely valid complaining makes people “cry babies”? I see their point of view and respect it, so why can’t you?

      • Sentinel

        Yeah, I see their point of view as well which is blunt hate. Constantly complain about every single bit of the game and always mention bf1. Just to make things clear, this doesn’t apply to all.

        • BradyAlucard

          I’ve seen those sort of people and I’ve seen people who make genuinely terrible lack of ‘arguments’ about it, but the levelheaded people are just fine.

  • Piotr Piter

    But maps cant be designed for boosting and non boosting. I wonder how it will play without boosting.

    • Fegasaruasㅤ

      Just like AW, pretty awful.

      • BradyAlucard

        The maps were designed only for the movement in mind. The reason why it died so quickly was because Sledgehammer replaced TDM with Mosh Pit, another reason why that game sucked during its life cycle.

  • BradyAlucard

    If everyone wants it, you’re going to have to speak up. If we actually cared about a boots on the ground playlist, then we need to get up in arms about it. The maps aren’t even dedicated to the movement all that much and the movement was dialed down in comparison to BO3’s, so we have a chance.
