MW has a strong player base, good graphics and some of the best gameplay mechaincs in the franchise. The microtransactions have been very profitable and it stayed fresh throughout its life cycle by bringing in new maps and/or weapons every season.
This is the point where MW could have became like R6 Siege, continuing the seasons, adding more content and releasing patches.
There is so much content from the past MW games that could be remastered and brought into the game. ( Intervention, Terminal, Highrise, Favela, just to name a few ) and so much more potential for new content as well.
It would be much more beneficial for the players and the devs that way.
But oh no Activision wants that 60$ per year, you have to release a new game and kill the one before it.
I wish that Activision let Cold war take warzone and leave MW as it originally was instead of this messed up CW WZ MW hybrid
IW would have to work much harder on their next release so it dosent feel like a pointless MW clone. I dont see how they could continue the story, so its best just to continue supporting MW and focus on what matters the most to the players, the Multiplayer
Edit: Thank you for your responses and awards! Just want to clarify a few things:
This post is just me sharing my opinion with you guys, I didnt post this hoping that Activision will read my rant and change their whole buisness model. After all they are a company and they will do what is most profitable for them
Yes, no one is forcing me to buy CW. And thats exaxtly what im doing, I wont buy it unless they fix the issues I have with it. I will keep playing MW until the next IW game, which hopefully will be better.
Vote with your wallets.
My KDA = 1.71, roughly 14k kills. GF KDA = 0.46, roughly 1.2k kills total. Watching my gf play in her own lobbies she can easily get 2000ish score, is happy if she can call in a napalm strike. The moment she dares lobby up with me suddenly she is forced to sit at the back of the map whole game shooting down UAVs to get any score.
Let us have fun. I want cod 4-7 ‘fun’ where my only gripe was getting destoryed by the one kid camping at the back of the map with a sniper and I didn’t need to spend 14 hours to unlock all the attachments for one gun. K thanks
My birthday is on Christmas day. I have always spent my birthday celebrating Christmas and never doing anything I want. My son is 3 and my daughter is 6 mo. I spend a lot of time with them and my wife, and barely see my friends anymore. This Christmas I just want to play COD with the boys. They're all going to be play COD on chridtmas/my birthday and I don't want to miss out - they are never online at the same time.
My wife is incredibly angry with me and wants to throw my new Xbox out the window. I'm angry because I just want to play COD with the boys on my birthday. AITA?
Okay I'm getting flamed here, and I feel like TA but I still don't think its a crazy ask.
I've never really celebrated my birthday. I was lucky if anyone other than my brother said the words "happy birthday" to me. My mom was super religious and made us spend every Christmas at church from 8am-8pm. The only acknowledgement I ever got from my family was a cake after dinner and a pack of socks once. I left home the day after my high school graduation and that's when I met my boys that I mention in my post. We've been everywhere together, have literally saved each other's lives and they are my brothers. They've always made me feel like my birthday was actually my birthday and not just Christmas. My wife has done this too, but not to the extent that the boys have.
Also, we haven't gotten together since before my son was born. We all live in different states and never see each other anymore.
Okay, I was not planning on playing all day. I planned on opening presents with the family then hopping on with the boys around noon. I get what everyone is saying, but I still don't think its a big ask. Family time is incredibly important, but I happen to think that COD with the boys is too 🤷♂️
Thanks for the input everyone! To clarify a few things:
I will not be helping with dinner. I never do and it's for the best. My wife and I agree.
I spend a lot of time with my family. I always wanted to give them the dad I never had. My dad is still "around" but was a drunk and has a new family now. I'm very close with my son and hopefully I'm just as close with my daughter once she's a little older.
My wife is convinced that the boys don't like her. We've been together a total of 10.5 years and she's always said that they feel like she stole me away from them. This is not true and they have never indicated this.
When I do get to play, I don't shirk my responsibilities. I a... keep reading on reddit ➡
The yearly COD releases need to end, give the devs some breathing room and let them at least polish the game otherwise we're going to get these results of a poorly rushed game because Activision didn't want to delay it, I would not even care to play Modern Warfare for another year, if it means more time to make Cold War to make it playable and enjoyable without the constant crashes. If Activision is going to stick with just IW and Treyarch making COD games, extend the life cycle, otherwise, this is what we're getting...
I have tried giving the game several chances first with the open beta and now the free multiplayer and I just can not stand it. The game just feels so behind. Mainly with the controls and gameplay. They are just horrible. Modern warfare 2 remastered feels more up to date and better then cold war. Over all i see like modern warfare better but this new black ops game just puts shame to the black ops serious
It’s a shame cod went this direction. I can’t even play Cold War for longer than an hour because of me having to sweat every game. Casual pubs is dead.
I really like this game. All opinions are my own. Yea the map selection is lacklustre at the start but the only map I don’t like playing is Miami and other than that all the maps are good imo. People I think are still stuck in the MW2-Bo2 era nostalgia and can’t look past maps from those games. I truly believe maps like Moscow, Cartel, Garrison and Crossroads can be considered well designed maps. And from what I’m hearing is that the 4 maps coming in season 1 are actually really good which also includes Raid from BO2. Yes the gun sounds/animations are of a lesser quality than MW but everything else the game does it better. The gunplay in this game is so engaging and I actually feel good while going on a streak but this feeling wasn’t present in MW. I stopped playing MW after the first month because it didn’t even feel like a COD to me and the pub matches were just downright unplayable. Atrocious maps, atrocious map designs, mounting, a billion doors/ windows, camping... I can keep going. I feel like COD is supposed to be arcady and not close to realism. Leave that to Battlefield. I can’t wait for season 1 and honestly some of the hate this game is getting I really don’t get it. Look past the nostalgia and this is actually the most fun black ops since BO2.
