I already made a post on how broken MW4 is at the moment, but I should state, EVERY SINGLE game using it's engine is also broken, ESPECIALLY on PC: MW4, Cold War, Vanguard, and Warzone, none of these games work properly, and I have very little doubt any of it is not intentional sabotage anymore. My last few posts documented some very intentional changes made to the game that broke it, and made iw8 ship barely playable. That wasn't the end of it, the list of things broken or set intentionally by the devs is way too high to even doubt this anymore. I truly believe the devs within activision are striking by breaking activision's golden egg basket, and I believe they WILL get away with it, since activision is making vast majority of their profits from COD alone. They will not kill their golden goose, they will simply continue letting the franchise rot away, as long as the golden eggs and those sweet microtransaction shekels continue filling their coffers. That's why these devs can get away with breaking the game, in protest, and will likely not get fired over it. I still believe that those fired QA testers were partly responsible for this shitfest, and that the devs stand with them, hence why this is happening
For anyone disagreeing with me, I would like them to explain to me the alternative explanation on why this pepper sticker(a fucking sticker) is worth 100$ of real currency. Someone set it up as high as they could for the laughs, and they know they will get away with it. Knowing activision, they might even get a promotion for it
You have to understand, I keep making these posts fairly regularly now, but I am just scratching the surface. There is no way for me to document every single thing broken with this game right now, not one individual game let alone all 4. I simply don't care to, but I haven't seen a game this fucking broken, and the game itself being such a PR disaster since fallout 76 or mass effect andromeda, and those were just 2 games, not 4. I will even give cyberpunk 2077 a little benefit of the doubt because there was a good open world single player experience buried underneath, the game was simply in it's pre alpha stage, Andromeda was a dogshit game from day one and the rest are GAAS shitshows, so they deserve the full brunt of criticism.
I wonder if this downhill trend of COD literally imploding on itself will continue until bobby kotick is removed from the company, for all I know MW5, COD's last hope, might be sabotaged right now as I type, despite the leakers saying they like what they see so far BTW, price will likely die in this one, or at least get captured and heavily beaten, judging by leaked screenshots
BTW, game will be free to play during the holidays. Again, mere weeks after the last free to play weekend, which was a disaster. The game must be leaking userbase at an astounding rate, same way as battlefield 2042, and those who played the last free weekend were universally claiming the game was dogshit, both from gameplay and technical perspective. Imagine people playing this game for free during the holidays, in it's current state, bugs and glitches everywhere and spawning problems and all that. I forgot to mention that the new incendiary grenade, on top of being completely OP and fulfilling the role of 3 other grenades at the same time, looks like complete dogshit and can completely fill up the map with flames and smokes and make it completely unplayable, it's most easily seen on small maps like shipment(keep in mind, you get one per life, and with vanguard's hectic gameplay, you will die a lot. You can spam these to your heart's content every life, and even more if you run ammo crates). The devs either clearly never play tested this grenade, or didn't bother fixing it, likely because they are trying to sabotage this shitheap. I won't link anymore videos for now, but youtube videos are still up of leakers saying 8 months ago that the game's development is a disaster and the game is going to be a shitshow, and they were 100% spot on
All that said, I didn't even touch on how out of control the hackers have become in these games, and how activision just doesn't care. Aimbotters and other obvious cheaters are just the icing on this shit sundae, you might be getting the big picture on how much of an unmitigated disaster this peak modern day AAA product is
