Is it wrong I really want to buy snoop dawgggg

 

I think I worked out that the 2400 COD points (?) is about £15

 

It's a bit tragic being in this to be honest, it's based around World War 2 isn't it, as far as I know gansta rap didn't exist at the time

Snoop is eternal. Yeh £15. I haven't played this for months but when he executed me today I genuinely lolled.

I'm pretty sure its because it was patched in December and has been fucked ever since (playlists limiting to about 6 maps per mode, which is really really shit).

 

Otherwise where else can you get Snoop Dogg running around in 1944 era Berlin ?

Call of Duty, our largest franchise, continued to see the benefits of our initiatives to expand reach, engagement and player investment in 2021. The Warzone free-to-play experience continued to engage tens of millions of monthly players, including many in countries outside of our traditional regions, creating numerous opportunities for player investment in in-game content and our premium releases. While Call of Duty remains one of the most successful entertainment franchises of all time, our 2021 premium release didn’t meet our expectations, we believe primarily due to our own execution. The game’s World War II setting didn’t resonate with some of our community and we didn’t deliver as much innovation in the premium game as we would have liked. We are certainly addressing both of these issues with the 2022 launch. Development on the 2022 premium and Warzone experiences is being led by Activision’s renowned Infinity Ward studio. We are working on the most ambitious plan in Call of Duty history, with over 3,000 people now working on the franchise and a return to the Modern Warfare setting that delivered our most successful Call of Duty title ever.

I don't think it was the setting that was the problem, for me it's that the game wasn't finished. The spawns were fucked, the camo challenges were bugged and most of the maps aren't very good. Then they added the attack on titan skins, and now you've got players running around Berlin as a bright pink naked titan. I don't think it's the worst game in the franchise but I stopped playing about half way through the last season, for me the spawns are a dealbreaker, it pops players up anywhere which makes dom a waste of time. The amount of times I get killed by someone who's appeared behind me is ridiculous, there doesn't seem to be a distinction between 'our side' of the map and theirs, it just shoehorns in players anywhere, whether that's in another player's gunsights or not. I find the whole thing pretty frustrating.

That's astonishing.

 

Though, of course, 2,500 are working on novelty skin packs for the multiplayer.

3,000 staff does sound crazy. 

 

"We are working on the most ambitious plan in Call of Duty history"

 

Here are a couple of things you can do and it won't cost you any money...

 

* Remove the Ninja thing - or anything that allows you to move in silence - completely stupid

* Slow some of the running movements down

* Animation penalty for jumping and firing - or just point the gun away from the screen when you press jump. Bunny hopping shooting is tragic

* Actually include the Free-for-All mode into any challenges to boost the player numbers in this mode. It's the forgotten mode and it's sad that no one has a reason to play it. 

 

Chances they will do any of that:

 

None

I thought I'd re-install the last COD - Cold War - and give that a go again and compare against Vanguard.

 

Cold War

More players it seems

Better sound all round

Map rotation works

Spawns are disgusting - possibly the worst the series has been

Jumping pricks

 

Vanguard

Not many players

Shit sound, really weak

Very pretty graphically in comparison to Cold War - and the latest Battlefield

Map rotation has been fucked since December

 

In both, maybe a bit more in Cold War, quick scoping is out of control

I've enjoyed this game overall but whats going on with the guns? They keep adding H4 Blixen, Marco 8, UGM? Wheres the M1 Carbine, Browning 1919, FG42, Vickers Gun, Lee Enfield, Springfield, grease gun, MG34? The MG34 actually made it into a Modern Warfare game but not WW2?

As time is drawing to a close on this version of the COD yearly churn, I have to reflect on some of it here. Of note, I only generally play MP and FFA mode - on PS5

 

I think it is visually the best one so far, probably to do with the next gen and 120fps, but in places it really does look the part. The sound is wank though - so piss poor.

 

It has a general consensus that it is one of the most disappointing titles in the series ever, and I have to agree, but maybe for different reason than the hardcore

 

The main reason for me is a massive letdown is a very basic one: The complete inability of the developers to provide a game that is playable via its stupid inbuilt playlist rotation system. 

 

They broke it all badly in December - just before Christmas - as it was working OK , and then left it broken. They tried to fix it, apparently, by revising the playlist rotation, but in truth it is now worse than before. You can have so many repeating maps in the same play session, sometimes twice or three times in a row (if the last 2 maps they added are anything to go by)- and there have been maps I haven't seen or played come around for months - literally months - at a time, with the same 5 maps over and over again

 

I also don't get it - it was billed as a WW2 shooter - but due to the shit crossovers with Warzone, we have Snoop Doog running around saying his drug quotes, and now Terminator 2 Arnie's and Robert Patrick's running around firing laser guns at you. 

 

Quite disturbing too that there are x2 Terminator 2 "packs" to buy - one gives you Arnie, the other Patrick's metal police officer, and each costs £16.79. 

 

£16.79 - to play as a single avatar from T2

 

£16.79 - why are people buying this? Are they mad?

 

What the fuck has happened to this game? Please separate the game I paid for from this shitty Warzone thing for fuck sakes.

My review is that I played it for just under 16 hours, compared with 9 days and 10 hours on Cold War and 23 days on MW(though I played Warzone a lot with friends). 
 

I only play Gunfight and a little FFA though really. The Vanguard version of GF  just didn’t strike a note with me. 
 

Im hoping GF in MW2 is back to normal. It’s a fantastic game mode, completed different from the twitch shooter COD has become and worth the RRP alone for me. The periodic tournaments were amazing fun, especially with a friend or a lot of time with mic friendly randoms.

I thought vanguard was surprisingly fun at first, I know a lot of people were disappointed with the beta and I was going to skip it. I did get it in the end and it wore thin pretty quickly. The worst thing for me is the spawns, it bungs players in anywhere which makes dom completely pointless, and has a habit of revenge spawning the person you just killed right behind you. The camo challenges were bugged from day 1 and weren't fixed for months. The whole thing felt unfinished and I got the impression the developers wrote it off pretty soon after launch. It's not a good game.

I could have loved this, but it was completely ruined by the spawn systems. I swear each cod game gets worse.

 

On this one it's relatively easy for you to position yourself up so the enemy team are spawning in your already firing crosshairs.
