If you go to the Just For You part of the store in game there's a ten tier battle pass skip for free. Because the xp for this game is still fucking stingy as shit.

 

I managed to get to 75 so I thought the bundle with 20 levels would be fine and easy to grind through next week, bit even with as much as I've played I would've been nowhere near 100 without that. Be interesting to see if they address islt.


As someone who bought tiers... sigh. But great for others.

 

Still taking forever to grind the final two tiers. But then I’ll buy MW2R and never use the BP ghost skin anyway. MTX are a racket. I know this.

It was where @moosegrinder said it would be for me, at the risk of sounding silly (I don't follow this thread) have you bought the battle pass - it's only there for people who have.

Hopefully they get some metrics from that.. is it only people in a certain level range that got it? A pity gesture. I think, from a dev viewpoint if the high level rewards are the ones you put the most effort into it would be pretty dispiriting if only a small percentage of people ever got them. And you can't repeat them or the hardcore will freak.

 

(This is how the much maligned industry practice online pass saw its end by the way - they got the numbers that showed a ludicrously huge proportion of people never even bothered redeeming it, closing off a massive market of people who surely would at least have tried it)

Have to say, I had no problems getting through the tiers playing WZ, and I don't play that heavily really. I do think the XP is a lot more generous there.

Most of the 'rewards' in the Battle Pass are incredibly low effort, surely? Static 2D emblems, weapon blueprints that are mostly just combinations of existing attachments and a custom paintjob, etc. I guess the operators are a fair amount of work but it's only their different outfits that are locked away behind higher tiers, not the operators themselves.

 

Don't get me wrong - I think it's all reasonably good, harmless fun and I've bought and completed BP season 2 - but I hardly think the devs are crying too much over their unappreciated labours of love.

It's an interesting thing, the battlepass. 

 

I wonder how many people pay but don't earn enough cod dollars back to pay for the next one? 

 

I am going to get season 2 done today (2 levels to go). I'm not sure if I'll jump straight in with the third though - it's quite a time sync and though time is relatively plentiful, I'm not sure if I want to look back on this time where anything was possible, but I totally managed to unlock that character skin instead. (I do want to unlock that skin though).

*bangs same drum he's been banging for months*

 

There's not nearly enough xp for the battle pass. When it's a double xp weekend that's probably a little too generous, but the fact a) they have tier sales and b) they gave away ten free levels means they know damn well it's normally not enough. I've never gone to the wire on a battle pass I've tried for but I bought the 17 quid +20 tiers one (only when I got to tier 75) because I never would have made it and I play it almost every night. I wish I'd taken note of how much I've put in over this season.

 

Whether they tweak it or not I don't know. I doubt it. I'll play as long as the game is fun. Part of my gaming make up is tied to some kind of tangible progress so battle passes are perfect in theory; play the game, get some loot. I love that shit. I just wish it wasn't so frustrating.

 

Anyway, 5 more levels to 155. Doubt I'll make it before reset tonight.

I think you may need to reread the lockdown guidelines!

Haha, sorry.  I guess I'm thinking more about the potential to improve the home and garden, learn some new skills ...write that concept album.

11GB on PS4.

 

Dunno whether to bother with the Battle Pass this season. Caned the first one and unlocked everything with plenty of time to spare, then COD fatigue set in during Season 2 and I only unlocked up to about the 30th tier. Wish they'd just leave Shipment 24/7 and Shout House 24/7 permanently.

Still 150 innit? Does that mean trios has gone?

 

Unless one team only gets two players, I think they must have tweaked the total player count too!

 

Bit disappointed that there's no sign of vehicle changes for WZ yet. Well, apart from cosmetic options, which hardly seem likely to address the current endgame issues.

 

Was also thinking there might be some hint about further WZ maps in the pipeline, but I suppose each one is a fairly huge endeavour. I'm sure it's already been mentioned a few times but I do love the way they've glued in (versions of) several of the regular MP maps into WZ Verdansk - I've really enjoyed discovering them.

Not sure it's very useful to have a separate WZ topic, BTW. I never know which one I'm posting in.

I just about got the battlepass finished last night. 

 

I think I'm going to pass on this season and play some other things for a bit. Last night I didn't really want to keep playing but with 1& a half levels to go I played half a dozen Rust/Shipment games that I didn't really enjoy just to get it done. Weirdly once I'd finished, I decided to play a few more games of my own choice. 

 

I guess being told you have to get something done by a deadline feels like work no matter what it is.

Not if you didn't unlock them I don't think.

 

 

I'm with Wah on this. I've had a look at the season pass and there's not much I'm wanting so I'm hoping that, like Destiny, I've broken it's spell.

If I can't complete previous season challenges despite unlocking the respective level of the battle pass, like Fortnite.... it might be uninstall and return to Siege time.

 

I am starting to miss Siege to be fair. A much more thoughtful game, if dated.

WZ BR seems to be quads and solos only at the moment - trios not available.

 

There's a little intro video for season 3 when you start it up that's really silly if you've ever played Rust - made me think of Police Squad shootouts between two guys 5m apart.

I'm going to end up uninstalling this due to the frequent large updates. It's crazy, I can't remember any other game as bad for it as this.

Is the Cross Play on this for Warzone only? Or does Multiplayer do it too?

 

Grabbed this for my son, as he has been begging for it for ages and loads of his mates have it, so great for him to be able to socialise with them while shut in.

You can cross play over all the multiplayer

 

Excellent and great to see it happening more and more. I might jump in myself at some point. Do you need to add friends via an Activision account to party up?
