    No even cares enough to say FURST. Sad….

    • lunator100hd .

      Yes, at least someone needs to find the courage for the sake of cod.

    • Ray’

      Loool R.I.P

    • BudEagle

      you were first, so why didnt you say FURST? Youre like the guy who gets in line for a midnight release at 4pm and says nobody cares about the game cause you were first lol

      • GinsuVictim

        Idiots here usually race to say it, yet this was up a while without any posts.

        • BudEagle

          that im aware of but this was posted today and you commented at around 10am est so idk why anyone would be on CI that early unless they’re not in school or at their job. idk why people feel the need to bash the part of the cod community that plays more cod than anyone else. Most cod esports players/fans would rather be playing another cod but they’re here to compete and/or support their teams.

          • GinsuVictim

            You’re taking this comments section way more serious than I or most of us here do.

          • BudEagle

            okay sorry but every other article has funny back and forth and legitimate thoughts regarding the articles topic and every article regarding cod esports, informational or otherwise, everyone is always bashing, lighthearted or not its a big disparity and its pretty annoying. dont get me wrong. i enjoy the comments on CI but i find it pointless anymore to view the comments on cod esports articles cuz there is nothing intelligent or funny going on down here. its just disappointing. competitive and casual players should coexist and respect each other for how they choose to enjoy cod. Alright, now I’m getting a little “speechy” and serious lol

            Lets all make CI comments great again!
