Call of Duty Thread: Please Insert Your Phone Number To Post Edition Anonymous 09/23/2022 (Fri) 12:38:44 Id: 9221e5 No. 697356
The old COD thread is dying, and the new game is almost out With Vanguard being such a shitshow, MW2/II/5/Electric Boogaloo REALLY needs to be a hit for Activision... And then you see this. While the game doesn't look too bad from what I watched(I didn't participate in the beta), other people HATE IT, but that mostly just include people who cried about the previous MW game. What are your thoughts about the sad state of gaming, COD in particular? Zombies discussion also welcome. What are some other games that also pull this phone number bullshit? I am genuinely curious, definitely never heard of a western triple A title with single player ever doing this before

Speaking of desperation, Vanguard is already pretty much being thrown under the bus right now. They're throwing everything at MW5 right now, but with how many people hate the game already and how it looks like it will be even more invasive than previous recent titles, if the phone number requirement is of any indication, I think Activision is going to be sorely disappointed That leaves the franchise in an interesting situation, there is no major COD release planned in 2023, which is a first in nearly 20 years, and 2024 is Treyarch year. That means Zombies mode, and what looks like some sort of a focus in single/multi on Fallelujah or some other real middle eastern conflict, so that is going to be interesting, at least

How good can MW2 be? Aside from campaign remastered, what can they add to the multiplayer to make it a financial hit? Tack on battle pass rewards, operator DLCs, DLC maps and weapons not in the original game?

>>697470 Why are there so many 12 year old cum guzzling faggots like yourself who actually enjoyed spamming knife with the same gay perk loadout or quickscoping over and over? Even with their flaws I can understand having a nostalgic fondness for WaW or MW1 but MW2 was a shitshow designed for hyperactive kids coming off their Ritalin high after school.
>>697365 Allied Assault was fine.

>>697365 Eh. I have a bit of a soft spot for MW and WaW so I decided to re-examine them a little while back. I've gone back and played them to check how thick the nostalgia goggles were and although they're quite arcade-y I would say that properly assessed in the hindsight and intervening decades of CY+7 they're somewhere slightly above "decent", maybe in the neighborhood of ~7.5 for MW and ~7 for WaW. In particular, the campaign in MW is still a pretty decent spectacle even if it reads like a sub-par Tom Clancy novel and it could very reasonably be considered to be the nearest thing to to a definite point when a very aggressive cancer started to really metastasize in the industry and shit up everything it has touched since. I fully understand the reflexive hate and much of it is richly deserved but it shouldn't dissolve into contrarianism. With that said pretty much everything since WaW has been, in my very limited experience, dogshit that has done nothing except rehash MW year after year while chasing whatever [current trend] in shooters is. I hope against hope that the franchise will eventually be taken out behind the woodshed but considering that Ghosts, Black Ops 3 through Cold War, AW, IW, WWII and Vanguard didn't manage to do so I am not optimistic. Also, a video request: I once saw a video of someone making some very good points about how the multiplayer and especially map design in MW2 was shit and I've been looking for it ever since with no success. It was basically a voiceover with gameplay footage in the background, IIRC it was 11 minutes or so long and I saw it on 8ch ca. 2016 (though it seemed older) in potato quality, no better than 360p.
>>699208 My nostalgia for WaW is basically just shishkebabing MP40 extended mag queers with my M1 bayonet. Ironic considering my last post, I know, but it felt a lot more satisfying when the upgraded melee was only usable with a full-sized rifle, and so did getting kills with said rifle. None of the CoD campaigns post MW1 are particularly memorable to me. They lead you by the nose, and even the most memorable moments for most people like the ghillie suit stealth mission ending in the extreme range Barrett shot are just following the explicit instructions of some other dude. If I want to enjoy a schlock action movie campaign I'd rather play Halo 1 or 3.
>>699252 Oh, I guess I have to mention I am baed4b because I'm currently traveling.

>>699256 >Self identification in an intrinsically anonymous medium. Don't mind me, I'm shitposting.
CoD used to be a decent Battlefield clone and became Counter-Strike 4 Kidz. Such a shame.
>>699264 Context matters anon I fucked myself by indirectly referring to my other post to begin with
>>699208 Every map since MW2 has been literally just 3 lanes
>>699434 Ok, disregarding the whole Cod/MoH thing: anon, can you expound on this subject? As a teenager I dabbled a little with making counter strike maps. From my analysis of popular maps, the "3 paths" ended up looking like the right way to do things. If the paths had too many interconnections/windows, it would begin to approach an arena map. Arena maps worked for HL deathmatch but they were too chaotic for counter strike and they eliminated much of the movement strategy. I'm interested in this subject so if you know of a better way, please ramble on.
>>699436 Unless you're some tryhard compfag that hates fun there's so many ways to do it, from verticality to open ended spaces filled with cover. But no, have some more 3 lanes faggot
>>699445 >verticality Sure, you play with it, but ultimately it's still 3 paths with a couple of interconnections. >open ended spaces filled with cover That's what I meant by arena.

>all of these sub 1.00 KD rejects getting angry at a 10+ year old game man, I didn't know us COD fans had this much power over /v/
>>697365 This.
>>699436 CoD has such a fast TTK that any map which is more open than the 3 lane pattern is a frustrating clusterfuck of getting killed from every direction. Counter Strike is a bit slower on top of only being one game mode (which is S&D in CoD and one of the most popular game modes anyway). It is possible to design more open maps, but they'd need to be quite large like Battlefield maps to avoid the clusterfuck situation, and Activision probably doesn't want to allow their devs to optimize for that.
>>699560 Large maps aren't the answer at all, especially since COD retards hate stuff like bulletdrop. The answer is giving options beyond the 3 lane cancer with verticality and different pathways.
>>697356 The desperation of those going broke from getting woke.
