I had a blast playing this on PS4, and Macys admitted the netcode was pretty good, so that's a big plus for it. I'll be shotgun whoring on day one, see you all in a month!

Pretty much the same experience I had with the beta. There were 2 or 3 aimbotters/wallhackers in some games and it just became a challenge of waiting for one aim bot to kill the other then rush the point/objective. Having Activision and Sledgehammer not say anything about resolving this was pretty laughable when Reddit blew up with videos of cheating going on. Back to BF1 again.

I'm sure SH has a plan for hackers in the full release. They have a lot of feedback from the beta.

WW2 really is running on 60 Hz servers! The damage and gunfire lag has been updated to 2017 standards, but the movement delay is worse than IW which explains a whole lot.

Stu I love your ops, as always.

I'm wondering whether to get this on pc this time around. I had a surprisingly good time during the beta and I think tdm will be populated enough until the end of its lifecycle.

Depends how many goons on PS4 will get it. I'm also thinking going xboner to play with another bud. I might go there if not too many ps4 gooners get it this year.


I know i should get it on all three


edit: Yeah, I got it on a amazon e3 pre-order deal, 50$ instead of the regular 80$ canadian. At worst I can trade it in or sell it for 60$

Sounds more like steps to the side instead of the whole "Step forward, step back" thing.

Also I'm humored that Chris' workaround for getting that program to work with the beta was to rename the program.

Uh, yes? To both?

Seriously though, this is arguably the only sentence that significantly differentiates them:

quote:

“This is a first-person shooter in which players assume the role of an American soldier through the Allied campaign in Europe during WWII. Players use machine guns, shotguns, rocket launchers, and explosives to kill enemy soldiers; some weapon attacks result in decapitation and/or dismemberment, leaving bloodstains and body parts on the ground. Battles are frenetic and accompanied by realistic gunfire, screams of pain, and large explosions. Cutscenes also depict instances of violence: a prisoner shot in the head at close-range; enemy soldiers shooting themselves to avoid capture.”

Yeah, I was considering SWBF2, but the gambling and utter lack of info about the single player have turned me right off.

The campaign will probably just be lovely, disconnected vignettes like Battlefield 1's.

I mean I spent close to 100 hours in it, but the PvP isn't really giving me any new gear anymore and my power level has basically plateaued, so I don't see a reason to do it anymore.

I'll probably play through it again with a new character in a different class one day, but for now I'm kinda burnt out on it and waiting for CoD to be my new timesink.

If you want to break your plateau, just play every Tuesday at reset and do the stuff that gets you luminous engrams like the flashpoint/crucible stuff. Now it only takes 4-5 crucible matches instead of 10, and doing public events is pretty easy since everyone wants their shinies. You can play for an hour or so and get them. I got stuck at around 276 for awhile but now I'm tipping 300 and I don't poopsock for hours.

Still don't think I'm doing the new CoD. It was just too meh in the beta. If it turns out we have enough for full parties most of the time and y'all are enjoying the gameplay I'll pick it up.

When I solo queue in CoD or Titanfall, my team can get stomped but I can still do well. I can't do that in D2.

D2 is such a restrictive game. You can't go anywhere without a battle buddy. You can't use your spaceman jumps in gunfights because Bungie didn't believe players could handle the Z-axis. You can't make plays without a super or power weapon up. And Bungie intentionally designed it like this.

here's something COD w@w 2 related that I'm definitely not going to edit into the extinction guide when this thread hits the next page.

quote:

Another leak has been posted to Reddit recently with details on the Basic Training, some of the features inside Headquarters, MP modes, and first details on Ranked Play. We do caution that all of these leaks are from WWII PC Beta files and could be wrong or subject to change before launch.

Basic Training:

There are 37 total basic training selections available in Call of Duty: WWII.

Gunslinger: Fire guns while sprinting and diving.
Energetic: Sprint again sooner, and no damage from falling.
Inconspicuous
Scoped
Duelist: Take two attachments on Secondary Weapon.
Rifleman: Take two Primary Weapons, and swap weapons faster.
Primed
Forage: Resupply bullets from killed enemies, and swap weapons faster.
Ordnance: Cheaper scorestreaks, and ability to re-roll your own Care Packages.
Requisitions: Scorestreaks do not reset on death, but cost more and can only be earned once.
Serrated
Concussed: Take a British N° 69 as a Tactical and an extra piece of Lethal equipment.
Hunker
Launched: Take Launcher as Secondary, and resupply it from enemies killed without explosives.
Bang: Take an extra Tactical and a Mk 2 Fragmentation as a Lethal.

Instincts: Warning when targeted off-screen, and detect enemy explosive equipment.
Espionage: Enemy Scorestreaks and enemies you damage appear on mini-map.
Cartographer: Radar ping at the start of each life that reveals nearby enemies. Sprint for longer distances.

Encampment: Bouncing Betty as Lethal Equipment. Choice of Tactical Equipment.
Flanker: Delays enemy pressure-triggered explosives (like Bouncing Betties).
Klutz: Increased explosive weapons damage. Take less explosive damage.
Knockout: Increased melee damage (always a one-hit kill). Melee faster.
Loaded: Extra magazines. Reload weapons faster.
Gassed: Two Tabun Gas grenades as Tactical Equipment. Choice of Lethal Equipment.:
Grenadier: Extra piece of equipment.
Raze: Deeper bullet penetration. Increased fire rate of bullet weapons.
Resolve: Longer breath hold for steady sniper shots.

Whilst in a Ranked Play pre-game lobby, players on each team will be given one of 3 strings below, based on the teams’ Skill Ratings.
