  • James- #RIPKasey

    now if they can please fix their game…

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

      Stop complaining and go play BO2. It’s a lot more fun than AW will ever be

      • ccrows

        Some of us don’t have a 360 any more brah… (not $, but retail space just isn’t there)

        • If you have an Xbox One, just wait for backwards compatibility.

      • Daniel

        BO2 sucked

        • Juses


          • Kyle Soule

            He lost his sweg by saying that

        • Xx_COLSEY_xX

          BO2 sucked??? You can’t be serious. If it sucked then it wouldn’t be the top 3 CoDs to be backwards compatibility for XBOX ONE

  • Xx_COLSEY_xX

    First (Finally)

    • ccrows

      *pfffft* ummmmm no.

      But I’m sure there’s a huge trophy for 2nd place… lol

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        Of course 😉

    • Kyle Soule

      Damn it! So close again 🙁

      • ccrows

        For 4th place?

        C’Mon I’ve been 2nd numerous times. 4th place?… lol

        • Kyle Soule

          Yh I think I can live with being 4th place.

          • ccrows

            Well S***, hugs then… *hugs* 😉

          • Kyle Soule

            Hugs and highfives… *hugs* *highfives*

          • ccrows


          • Kyle Soule

            ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

      • AidanMauricio

        Does it matter…?

        • Yes, it does.

        • Kyle Soule

          Yes, it does matter greatly. It is very important that you get furst comment because if you dont… then you will surely die with no sweg at all AND you will have to join the other fagits in hell and suffer the wrath of Juses.

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        Haha this is my first time ever being first 😀 Feels good

        • Kyle Soule

          Yh I know it does xD. But be careful, because you get a lot of sweg and power being the furst comment and with great power, comes great sweg.

  • ccrows

    *sigh* Yup I knew it. I saw the Condrey Tweet, and figured this was gonna be a thing.

    If SH had half a brain, they would make DLC3 double prestige all week.

    Sure I’m already GMP, but still… <_<

  • Stefan Lang

    Now lets see if I can pull an Elite ASM1 and that Denial Gear.

    • ccrows

      You’re gonna stick out like a sore thumb with that Denial gear though…

      • Stefan Lang

        I bought 1 ASD earlier I got the Helmet so far I just need the exo and loadout. It’s pretty sick.

        • ccrows

          Some load outs look great. (in customization lobbies that is)

          However try with them and use a manual killstreak.

          ^ BTW best of luck with that too… 😉

  • Rick Starr

    Wait so is this the big thing that condrey had a timer for or more intel gonna drop?

    • ccrows

      I think it’s more about the Samurai and Denial gear TBH… *looks around for confetti to throw* 🙁

  • Thomas the TankSwag

    Is the double xp on all playlists?

    • RdJokr

      Seems that it’s only for Skyrise 24/7.

      • Thomas the TankSwag

        That sucks, dont really like the map and i cant play most game modes.

    • ccrows

      DLC3’s playlist would make the most sense, and Comeback 24/7 for those that don’t have any DLC… *sigh* *SMH*

      • Thomas the TankSwag

        Comebacks awful on objective modes, people just camp in the middle. My favourite map for 24/7 would be Greenband.


    How many prestige will be in Black Ops 3?

    • ccrows

      Whatever it will be (unless there’s a stats reset) the answer is not enough.

      Condrey’s Twitters the past few days has been flooded with adding more prestiges past GMP. Prestige is Key is still begging him for more prestiges.

      *fast forward*

      BO3 is “supposed” to be more popular than AW, but unless it has 30 prestiges, then it goes back to my OG answer of “Not enough”… (unless there’s an option to reset stats)

      • Siftblade of Rivia

        30 prestiges is way more than enough. I want 10 or 15 prestiges max. What’s the point of prestiging if there’s no end goal? Just get to max prestige and reset if you really enjoy prestiging that much. Personally, I just want to collect all the playercards and icons for the prestiges, show off that I’m master prestige, and then play the game with everything unlocked (without having to worry about prestiging constantly). If there was 50 prestiges, I wouldn’t even prestige once because I know I’m never going to have the time to get tot the top.

        • ccrows

          I made it to GMP about a month ago, but TBF I got a bunch of 2XP drops on top of DBL XP weekends.

          ^ Having 4XP on Dom ranks you up ridiculously fast…

      • ScOott

        30 prestiges is way to much man, I love cod, but with work, wife, kids, life pfft.. If I like the cod I play a couple of hours a day, and probz double that at weekend (sometimes). I actually like to be prestige master for a month or two before the next cod comes out as well.. These people that have time to moan about prestiges have to much time on their hands imo..

        • ccrows

          I have work and GF too (don’t ever want kids), but playing on DBL XP weekends and Dom is like pinball points.

          I usually go through a prestige a day on DBL XP (and not playing the whole day either).

          Things became even easier for me with AW since I was getting a bunch of 2XP supply drops on top of 2XP, so I had a bunch of 45 min 4XP sessions…

          • ScOott

            I haven’t reached max prestige since black ops 2 (mainly because I don’t like the last two instalments) but I can’t remember that many double xp events ? .. Even so we talking about this, they might be 15 prestiges (not sure if confirmed) but no idea how long it takes to rank up each level.. It might be alterd to make it last longer, mw3 prestiges the first 5 they added would of been perfect for me what ever number that was, that took me till the end of the cycle to get their ..

          • Kyle Soule

            Yh Black ops 2 is the only call of duty that im a prestige master in. On a side note, I wonder if they are going to bring back double weapon XP. That was a pretty cool idea imo.

    • Xx_COLSEY_xX

      Probably 10 prestiges and then master prestige


    Can’t wait for #EliteBonus day !

  • *sigh* I JUST reached grand master prestige, then this happens. 😛

  • butt

    Grapples? I love the game, but grapples made it even better.

  • Eaz Jmilly

    Is the 2xp just on Skyrise?

  • tjtbkgaming

    gmp now i’m screwed.

  • melchor2679

    Good, time to level up a bit. Great map too.

  • gumbie7

    Ugh, this map just breeds campers. It is almost unplayable.

    • Drasadex


      Bastards camping in the same spots as they did 6 years ago lol

      • gumbie7

        Campers will ALWAYS be campers.

  • tyrion targaryen


    • You know it’s your fault you can’t find a match right? YOUR console hasn’t fully loaded the game, or your internet is just straight up shit.

      • Xx_COLSEY_xX

        When you try to find a game at 2am, It’s very difficult sometimes to find a game. Even worse when you’re in a party 🙁

        • Here’s your solution: Get at least nine hours of sleep and stop playing at 2am. That’s what I do, and it’s been working. You really should try it sometime. 😉

          • Xx_COLSEY_xX

            Hey thanks for the advice dad(!)

          • Haha, no problem! 😛

    • SBMM sucks but it doesn’t affect you being or not being able to get into matches.

      • w

        you sure? Or are you just saying that?

        • I’m sure. It affects what skill level opponents you are matched up against, but it doesn’t affect if you get into matches or not.

          • eeee

            what are your stats? If you are speaking from personal experience (aka your stats are high and you can get into many games) I’ll take your word for it. What if theres not enough people around your skill level though? I know for a fact that higher skilled people dont get the same amount of matches as others.. so I can see why some people are not getting into games.

          • Then it would just put you into matches around your skill level. It’s a range.

          • e

            right but there are not as many people in the higher skill levels. theres gotta be certain times when theres not enough people to fill in a lobby. or even find a lobby aka “no games found”

      • ben wills

        Uh…. about that

  • Why would they even do this?! It’s easily the worst map in Advanced Warfare. They completely ruined the map. Everyone just camps it’s ridiculous. I guess this is the community we have left on the game…

  • Cool.

  • Trae

    Ohhh so I get better chances at winning ELITE gloves or ELITE boots or other stuff I don’t want

  • JoZer805g

    Good thing it isn’t comeback, way to small and ugly

  • WhiskeyDick

    Ummm I don’t see any “skyrise 24/7” playlist in my menu… Black ops 2 would make a completely separate “nuketown 24/7” double XP playlist for occasions such as these….

    I guess I just have to play supremacy tdm and hope for skyrise to get double XP?

    • d

      go to bonus playlist

      • WhiskeyDick

        Thanks for the direction! Though sledgehammer should had made this known to begin with, now I’ll have a couple hours of double XP as opposed to the time wasted today trying to earn it in supremacy moshpit

  • Pflann

    I cant play skyrise anyway as my playstation wont let me play aw online. Oh well cba with all the camping shits

  • Increased chance? Probs like 2% lol

    • WhiskeyDick

      I dunno! I opened 2 drops so far today… One contained a speakeasy and the other xmg eggs and bacon…. Both duplicates but still

      • Mark

        I opened 4 Reg SDs and 1 ASD today and got one elite exo. 3 of the 4 Reg SDs had only one item in it. I still think one item SDs were to get players to buy ASDs


    All you get on this shit map is spawn trapped by camping thermal snipers at the ends of the map! And bonus elites yh its probly about 0.00000000005% increase of getting some elite knee pads or glives and nothing else! This game is a laggy piece of shit that actually gets worse weekly!
