Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.
Another year another cod.

After how shitty and awful WW2 was, I'm gonna give this one a shot since Treyarch at least cares about their games.

Well it would be better if it was IV, and Black Ops 3 wasn't such a shitty game

Which do you guys think will end up being milked harder? Destiny or the Black Ops series?

The campaign for Black Ops 3 was really the only thing that was bad. The multiplayer has its ups and downs but in no means is it a terrible game overall.

I had fun with the multiplayer for what it was.

Treyarch is responsible for the slot machine simulator COD has turned into tbh

The only two meaningful editions they brought were zombies and scorestreaks

Sledgehammer were the ones that introduced weapon variants and supply drops before Blops 3 in Advanced Warfare.

Blops 3 doesnt have weapon variants at all.

I never participated in the variant system at all so I don't know
But I feel like the lootbox system comes more from Activision to make money

What I'm talking about is more of the sterilized luck based gameplay COD took on
It mostly has to do with the maps

Treyarch is responsible for the three lane generic maps COD has now
Gameplay in one area of the map is no different from gameplay in a different area
Power positions and choke points are nonexistent and do you ever notice how there'll be an open area with something in the middle where enemies can come from either side of
It just feels like I'm constantly being shot in the back or only winning because I saw an enemy before he saw me

Honestly what could BO4 be at this point other than another futuristic COD with micro transactions? It's very hard for me to imagine them going back to something like BO1. Maybe a modern warfare type game?

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Father Dougal McGuire, from Craggy Island's Father Ted.
Reminds me I haven't played a CoD since Black Ops.

"Forget what you know" - well clearly Roman numerals weren't created in this alternate universe. Might as well be BO "IVX"

A console based gacha game with CoD guns and characters and futuristic microtransactions.

Weapon variants made the game pay to win. You had the default weapons you unlock by leveling up but there were better versions of the weapons that were locked behind the supply drops and you can only get those through them. Those variants had better recoil, more damage, more range etc that made the default weapon obsolete. They started this in Advanced Warfare, then to Infinite Warfare, and took it to WW2.

Well no shit. They put you in lobbies with people who don't have supply drop weapons to make the buyer feel good about themselves and hope that they would spend more.

CoD's gameplay was never about luck. It was always who had the better reflexes that would do better than someone that doesn't.

Nearly 95% of ALL CoD maps going back all the way to CoD 4 are 3-lanes. The reasons why the older maps seemed different is because of all the verticality, power positions, and nooks and crannies which made the maps more unique than the shit we have now.

Popular maps from previous games like Highrise, Backlot, Firing Range, Terminal, and Scrapyard are all 3-lanes but they all had unique ways to get around the maps. Highrise had the underground tunnels, cranes, and helipad. Backlot had multiple alleyways and holes in the fences to crawl under. Firing Range had every building accessible to the player with multiple paths to get around. Terminal had the airplane, the open tarmac, and the library. Scrapyard had a bunch of airplane bodies to run through as well as a bunch of side buildings.

The maps in a game like WW2 for example are literally just the 3-lanes you're talking about. No unique passageways, no flanking routes, no power positions, no verticality, and literally 0 power positions.

The ideal CoD right here. Man I miss Blops 2.

I thought Blops 3 was poop but hopefully they learned about it and make it more like the first two.

given the way everyone seems to be overhyping the fact that battlefield went to a history setting of WW1 and COD went back to WW2 (even though both games turned out pretty meh, proving that it isn't the setting that makes the game bad or good by default), it'll probably be vietnam or something else in the cold war.

or maybe I'm just salty that we'll probably never see battlefield 2143 or a followup on Infinite Warfare's campaign

Kind of funny thinking about how Black Ops 2 was set in 2025, 7 years from now, and had all that futuristic shit going on.

BLOPS III was actually the first COD I played since BLOPS II so I may be laying into Treyarch a bit harshly
I got back into it because everybody said it was good but honestly I thought it was trash

The time to kill is practically instant
Guns don't feel any different from each other
The absence of strategy and the meaninglessness of positioning

I don't know what BLOPS IIII (IV) can change about the COD formula at this point
I honestly don't think it's even possible
COD is COD because of the instant gratification low skill level gameplay
If they innovation, fans will complain
If they stay the same, fans will complain
All they can do in lateral changes at this point

I agree, I think the first couple of iterations were great because of their simplicity. In later games I simply didn't care.

That said, Infinite Warfare's Zombies mode was alright.
