    I was finding the same until I stopped dicking around in TDM/DOM and switched to War exclusively and playing like an objective maniac. Ranking up about 2 levels every 3 games at the moment

    Cheers - might switch to War then so

    War is the way to go for XP and not having to worry about dying 50 times while throwing yourself at an objective. Build every wall, gun, bridge, escort the tanks over the line and you will fly up the levels

    When you're on defense, build everything and then rush them with a silencer. It causes chaos and take their attention off the OBJ

    On attack I tend to run smoke grenades to help with the OBJ

    Replied to the Top 5 thread giving my 5 favourite maps of the game so far and struggled to think of any that are above average. Even COD:Ghosts, a game that was remarked as below average did better maps than this. Octane, Prison Break, Freight, Whiteout, Warhawk, Sovereign, & Strikezone - Every one of these maps are superior than whats on offer at the moment with WW2. The maps have no flow, are clunky, & maze-like. It's the worst set of starter maps I've played.

    It amazes me how Activision can continually year on year **** up a simple product more and more. The game hit it's peak with MW3 multiplayer gameplay-wise. The weapons, maps, perks, scorestreaks, etc. were absolutely brilliant and has such amazing flow and rewards for strategy. It's been going down hill since.

    It also doesn't help that with 60MG broadband I've getting unplayable lag in half the games I enter.

    It's funny how the quality of COD games has gotten worse (as a lot of people say) when each studio has had one extra year to develop their games.

    I've always been on the other side of the field with the maps in WW2, I don't find them as bad as everyone says.

    Think BO2 was the best.

    It's annoying in this one as I think the core mechanics are as good as they've ever been. Just bad choices with the supplemental things.

    Playing the campaign now and it's pretty bad. Way worse than Infinite Warfare which was pretty great.

    Played 8 missions in one sitting. Starts off very ropey but gets much better a few levels in.

    had about 20 mins earlier before heading off to work.

    Powered up Xbox. Game needs an update. No problem.

    I reboot.

    I then try to log into a game of Dom. Error.

    I do it again. I'm in! Game on. Em.. nope. I am technically in but only spectating!? FFS. I change class about 5 times in an effort to get thrown in. Nothing. I leave the game.

    I try again. Yup - I'm in a game of Dom. Wait a second - I'm only spectating again!

    *Turns off machine*


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,333 ✭✭✭✭ sryanbruen


    I keep getting the game updating, error code 5 problem :mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad::mad:. I did what was mentioned on this forum before of solving this problem, it did nothing for me.

    I don’t use incendiary as I run them with airborne. Exclusive ace did a video showing incendiary shells reduce the range. The range is already bad enough.

    Shotguns are worthless in this game. I remember using the Brecci gun I think it was in BO3 and tearing it up.


  • Registered Users Posts: 16,132 ✭✭✭✭ everlast75


    Tried to get a game last night. Was left in lobby regardless of mode and turned off the machine after 15 mins

    I'm only running them just to annoy other people because people piss me off with them.

    Trying to use the lee Enfield sniper tonight and it’s just turned into a hit marker machine.

    Only need 1 double kill for gold and can’t seem to get any kills at all ☹️☹️

    Getting very tired of the quickscoping every game Sledgehammer need to ring Treyarch and ask them how to fix quickscoping!
    Also does this happen to anyone else since they added Headquarters to the menu I think I am going to find a game and then it turns out I’ve clicked on the Headquarters by accident! They need to swap the Headquarters tile with the find game one is first in the list!

    Each studio could learn a lot from one another to resolve their problems, like Infinity Ward teach Treyarch and SHG good hit detection or Treyarch teach Infinity Ward (for the most part, Infinite Warfare's time to kill wasn't that quick) good balanced time to kill etc.

    There should be a polling room in the Headquarters.

    When you walk around headquarters commending everyone and get one back in return :(


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,525 ✭✭✭ NoviGlitzko


    I'm cursing myself for buying the digital version. I was thinking with [email protected] being my favourite COD that I'd at the very least have a multiplayer that if not love but enjoy having casual games.

    I haven't played it now in over a week. It's the biggest pile of shite I've bought since Final Fantasy XIII about 6 years ago. Over Xmas I'm gonna see if I can sink myself into another FPS as COD is the only one I gave a go really.

    Really disappointed with it. Find it incredibly boring and annoying. :(

    Anybody having issues getting into games? Showing up that there's 50 potential games found but it's not joining any for me.

    On Xbox

    I got that twice in the past few days. Both times just backed out to the dashboard and quit the app then loaded it back up and worked grand
