Modern Warfare

Early access to the Beta starts today. Early results say it looks good but they need to do some work to make sure the balance is right.

 

Biggest complaint: no mini map and of course there will be micro transactions.

 

Biggest upside: no season pass. All users will have access to all maps.

Xbox and pc went live yesterday.

So I’ve been off CoD mp for a while now. I’ve bought a few on big Xbox sales here and there including BO4, it’s ok and fun at times for some twitch shooting. Still prefer BF for my twitch-style shooter.

Tried the beta, it feels pretty good. I’ve preordered and feel it’ll be worth it. I really liked MW but felt for every pro the added in MW2 they did double the cheese in cons.

I do like dedicated servers and cross platform play but I REALLLLLLY LIKE splitting the player base into controller and M&KB groups. Now hopefully they’ll be able to detect and split out those spoofing the M&KB setup on Xbox as well.

This feels like they took a dash of RB6 Siege, the bulk of BF3/4 and the twitch of MW1 to create the feel for this go round. I’m interested in trying the realism mode to see if it’ll replace my hardcore need. I cannot play CoD in vanilla mode.

What are micro transactions. Been out of gaming for a year or two as my boys have taken over the XBox & I've gotten busier. Heard micro transactions mentioned in  a review earlier today, too.

And wtf...people are using M&KB on XBox now? FML.

Micro transactions are usually pay to win in-game stuff.

Like special weapons or perks or boosts that can only be purchased rather than earned in game. Or what often happens is $ to shortcut unlock items/weapons.

Other types are cosmetic, like camos or skins.

Everyone tends to lose their shit on pay to win schemes.

And yeah M&KB has made its way to consoles. One connector spoofs the console and is harder to detect by games. But cross platform play is why everyone wants the 2 types of players split into 2 groups.

Not surprising the game is locked up server side. I can’t even play campaign because I guess it doesn’t recognize I have it.

A few hours in has taught me that I fucking suck at this game. Struggling with the complexity of the maps.

Have to remember they went away from a 3 lane setup like Black Ops and back to a more open world type setup.  Elevation is key.

I figured that out during the beta. I couldn’t move without being killed at first. Still hasn’t figured out how some of those fools saw me.

Lots of drones/uavs.

Go slower, bring a claymore and camp centrally, edge campers suck balls.

Or play realistic so there is no all-time minimap

How does this actually compare to the original MW games?  I loved those but then hated everything after them from COD.

OGMW was pretty ground breaking for console twitch shooters...

I think this MW at least feels like it tried to go back to what made it the bar while still keeping that fast paced twitch shooting sprint fest.

It feels like a baby from OG-MW and BF3.

I loved MW, I tried my best to live MW2 but the stacking kill streaks ruined it for me... that still pisses me off. After MW2 they were pretty giant mehs from me.

The maps can feel really small for me, I’m so used to BF sized maps.

That being said I’m annoyed Ground war was not available last night. I really wanted to play that mode on new maps.

I just started playing COD Mobile.  Enjoying it.  I am thinking of picking this up.   I am thinking PC over Xbox.  I haven't played a fps game in a long time.

Update dropped today.

Needed the stupid 725 shotty. Every match had a minimum 8-9 players running overkill with 725 with choke and an optic, sniping with that stupid shotty.

Like the NVG mode, finally figured out yesterday how to filter for hardcore mode... I’m an idiot.

In HC mode the M4A1 with the 9mm mod, with grip tape and 2nd stock becomes a laser gun. Then I attach the underbarrel shotty and it’s a beast. Just can’t engage ppl at distance. Just watch them without ghosting yourself
