My problem with following Macys, Javes, or Aaron is that I don't even follow them. I go find my own kills and land a good 2 bullets before someone flies by and takes the kill. It's almost impressive how once they get a rhythm going the team becomes this swarm of jumping piranhas that just go from A to C to A to C killing everything in their path. And I'm like 4 seconds behind looking for scraps.

Use an SMG. You run faster.

Seriously though, my experience in CoD is that there's basically two strategies to get kills; you run and gun and rely on your skills and ping to keep you alive, or you patrol a high traffic/strategically important area, and wait for them to come to you/kick the hornet's nest to attract revenge killers.

The latter method relies on you having preternatural ability to predict enemy spawn movements... like yours truly.

I never needed a motion tracker, the motion tracker was inside me all along.

The DBSR-50 is trash. The OHK zone is maybe half the size of the RZA's, and working the bolt every two rounds really fucks follow-up shots.

Starting with irons and then the Red Dot is a straight hate gently caress. No Ballistic CPU either.

Yeah, it's just as Mass Effect-y as ever and MP is even more fun with ~*verticality*~ and CoD-like jump and dodge. Like to play MP with some codbros if you have it.

e: I've even been using my Scuf to play since jump and slide are the same buttons as CoD, owns

You'd better pray that Bungie can convince Activision to invest the piles of money that game will make into better netcode. Destiny has 10 Hz tickrate on exclusively P2P, with SSBM thrown in to make connections even worse. gently caress, CoD4 was better.

Surprised they went for WW2 instead of a Modern Warfare reboot. Here's my thread title suggestion for WW2 CoD because lol Sledgehammer

I'd like a WWII CoD that had setting which aren't done to death. USSR vs Finland, Australia & British colonies vs Japan in Southeast Asia, the American campaign in Italy, that brief war between the USSR and Japan in Manchuria... there's a lot of interesting and relatively untouched aspects of WWII, but if it's just Stalingrad/Tunisia/Normandy/Ardennes again they can go gently caress themselves.

Flankensttein: A name given to a FPS gamer who constantly flanks to get kills.

"So I was playing COD yesterday, and some flankenstein came up from behind and shot me."

Only in goon blops 3 games do I go 25-1 and finish 3rd place.

If it's WW2 then all I want to do is get my calling card for punching nazis.

If they really must take away the new movement stuff could they do everyone a solid and go back to designing maps that aren't all symmetrical 3-lanes?

The maps in these last few CoDs feel like they were designed to cater specifically to a CoD esports/tournament crowd that, to my knowledge, doesn't actually exist because this series is certainly not meant for that.

Competitive COD is a joke because the game needs to be built for it. You can't just shoehorn it in. Plus the laughable netcode.

So what does that mean for Treyarch in 2019? Would they do Blops 4 with jump jets and wall running while IW (assuming) simultaneously releases Modern Warfare 2 Remastered?

COD: WWII is a bad title but I do like the idea of returning to that era. I also wonder how much of this is a reaction to Infinite Warfare's sales or reception or even a reaction to Battlefield 1's popularity. There's no way they could have scrapped Advanced Warfare 2 just 5 or 6 months ago and started work on WWII.

Why not? General rumor is that Ghosts 2 was scrapped after the first year of development had begun for IW instead.
Consider how many similar bugs IW has/had at launch that were patched out of BLOPS 3.
It's highly likely Infinity Ward was given a second year build of Trey's game to make sure they could hit release on time.
And if Kotick did it once, he'll do it again. CEO bonuses are at stake here!

That still gave Infinity Ward a regular 2 year dev cycle, unless I'm misunderstanding. Scrapping AW2 back in November gives them only a year to begin and finish production on a new game that they would have no assets for, assuming they wouldn't use any of the old W@W or COD2 assets. That just seems like an insane dev cycle for a big budget game like this.

Call of Duty's in a really weird place, like if this leak turns out to be true expect another huge division between the playerbase between people who like the future movement and see WWII as an admission that they've officially run out of ideas vs. people who hate the newer games and desperately want a return to older CoD gameplay, even if it means going back to WWII/modern era.

I can't actually think of a setting that wouldn't piss off half the community for one reason or another.

So what you're saying is, they should start releasing two Call of Duty games each year, to address the market split?
