    Ok, WW2 is now in with my least favourite CODs of MW3 and Ghosts.

    I like WW2 but would love if Treyarch came back with literally an updated Black Ops without jetpacks or whatever. BO3 would have been very close to great without the boosters so hopefully they're gone this time.

    Editing this to say how much I hate shotguns.

    I can 100% agree with this especially after the stupid buff of the Combat Shotgun - which was not needed.

    With the combat shotgun the way it is, there's absolutely 0 incentive to use any shotgun in the game. I love close quarters combat but with the way it is, there's just no point.

    Maybe look back through the thread, especially through the first few pages and you’ll see why.

    The developers seem to be listening to much to the MLG players like Optic Scump it whatever his name is they are nerfing the M1 Girande because the competitive players were moaning about how quickly it killed up close, no one bloody uses it in public matches they probably account for 1% of the player base interested in MLG, so build a version of the game for them. That’s why we see the constant nerds for the bar etc they need to start listening to the normal players who just want to have fun!

    9 maps on release and they are mainly meh and thats being kind.

    Seriously broken perk system(if it can even be called that).

    Headglitching.

    The guns are a bit boring too...doesn't help that they are nerfing/boosting guns 2 months after release.....

    I mean in fairness on your last point, perfect weapon balance is extremely hard to achieve in Call of Duty, the closest being in my opinion was Black Ops 2 and that had a ton of buffs or nerfs. Remember the death threats Vonderhaar had received from the sniper community for nerfing the DSR-50?

    But yeah, there's a lot more you could add to that list. However, we've all pretty much named them all.

    I went back to this over the weekend to give it another try. There are a few things I noticed.

    I did way better by just walking around. Game was much slower and not the way I like to play (running like headless chicken would be my playstyle) but I was consistently in top 3 of the lobby. I also predominantly ran mountain and energetic with the sten then went the opposite way to my teammates.

    Hardpoint - They need to add score for sitting in the hill. Lost 1 game where my 5 teammates had a combined 30 seconds in the hill. I sat in the hill for >3mins but had no benefit from it as we lost the game. I undersatnd not everyone needs to sit in the hill but these guys were not even slaying around the hill/ maintaining spawns etc just playing it like a game of tdm. At least if you got some score towards scorestreaks by sitting in the hill then more would be encouraged to do it.

    Perks/weapons etc - For all the previous cods when I prestiged I always felt at a disadvantage when everything was locked again. I debated what to spend my unlock token on (Ghost vs dead silence, M8 etc etc). There was always at least 5 things between perks, weapons, score streaks that I wanted to spend that unlock token on. Prestiged for the 3rd time in this Sunday because of the dbl xp and still have the token sitting there is nothing I need to spend it on. TBH felt more at a disadvantage when I prestiged the mountain division

    Couldn't agree more, there's no reason to sit there unless you're just trying to do the honest thing and win. If they did like 50 points every 5 seconds or so. You spend 45 seconds on the hill, 450 extra points. Add on 30+ kills on a good day and you've enough of an incentive to play the game mode.

    I think I've come around to the perk system. You get hunker after prestiging armoured which is basically what I wanted though it's annoying I can't have lookout with it. At least I don't get blown up 15 times a game now, just 5 or so :p


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 3,430 ✭✭✭ major bill


    Gustav Cannon!! I’ve growing to hate this map! Nearly every game is a drawn out affair and snipers I ****ing hate them play the game how you like a lot of people enjoy sniping and some are really class at it but would love a game mode where there is a choice to play without it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,759 ✭✭✭✭ Liam O


    Has there ever been a more noob friendly weapon than the incendiary shell combat shotgun? Oh you missed? Doesn't matter, the other guy will still die cause of the fire.

    Fùcking infuriating.

    Gun game on Gustav Cannon and you have to kill someone with the double barrel shotgun

    Yep certain maps should be on excluded from the gun game game mode for being too large and that includes two of the dlc maps


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,878 ✭✭✭ heroics


    I thought some of the old maps were bad but the dlc ones are brutal. Don’t like a single one of them. First time I have seen 11 votes against a map in war

    Same here I will tolerate the Resistance remake the other 2 I will vote to skip them I kind of like all the base maps except Gustav Cannon as I am comfortable playing them and know them inside out. The suppose that’s always the same nearly every year with Dlc maps.

    It could be that I’m more familiar with the base maps but anthropoid has to be the worst cod map I’ve ever played prob only map I actively quit out of


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,352 ✭✭✭✭ sryanbruen


    So Anthropoid is as **** as it looked from the trailer?

    I’d actually play gustav 24/7 rather than play 1 game a day of anthropoid

    So played this again for the first time since the start of the year with the intention of presteging the mountain class to obtain the Kar98k with iron sights, twas my favourite set up on [email protected] Finally got it anyway and grinded up the gun to level 7 to finally get the iron sights. I was hopeful. Good god. It's by far the worst gun set up in the game.

    It has no option of quickdraw, so every time I try ADS on reaction and get a decent aim, I'm killed easily. It's ADS time is the same as your standard sniper rifle, and you don't have the option of quick scoping either (not that I use that but still). Also, the weapon sway. When I ADS it sways so much. I remember in [email protected] there was no weapon sway and for the life of me I don't understand why they brought it in. Sacrificing the fun in a video game for 'realness'. Nice one Activision.

    So not only can I not compete in a 1v1 because by the ADS time is the same as an LMG with no option of quickdraw, I can't shoot anyone over a few yards because THE ****ING SNIPER RIFLE is swaying like a pendulum with no option of holding breath or keeping the weapon steady.

    I find it hard to dislike some games, only hated one (FFXIII). I LOATHE this game.

    Trying to play hp or dim in this game unless. In a party is impossible. Just finished a game where my 5teammates didn’t even get >10 secs in the hardpoint. Wtf


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,878 ✭✭✭ heroics


    All I need is a single win. 3rd lobby in a row and I get this bunch of wasters. Wouldn’t mind if they were killing around the hill but they weren’t.

    So they removed special orders and now you have to rely 100% on supply drops to get weapons...... :mad:
