    Nothing but praise for these guys. Incredible job on addressing most of the communities concerns. Looking forward to the season. LAN LEAGUE!

  • Bet if they spent those 4 million dollars on improving the game there would be a higher viewer turnout.

        They will lol been a terrible start to a new call of duty, esports will suffer badly this year. All the pro players know it. None of the pro players even want to play this game.

        • imBATMAN

          ok but they’re under contract and are forced to play so if they’re still playing activision gives no fucks

          • zack

            But the viewers aren’t forced to watch. So when the views are down and they are losing money they will give a fuck. The pro players that make YouTube videos have significantly less views on infinite warfare content compared to modern warfare remastered. This will be a rough year for esports. Mark my words.
