Treyarch hopes Black Ops 2 multiplayer changes will make Call of Duty a team game again

Eurogamer: The developer has replaced Kill Streaks with Score Streaks, and to unlock them you need to gain score, granted for kills and team-benefiting actions. It's also implemented a new skill-based matchmaking system called League Play that will see players promoted and relegated into divisions for competitive play. (Call of Duty, EA, PC, PS3, Xbox)

i wonder how long this will work.

Well in EA's first attempt to battle CoD they have made them want team based gameplay. That's pretty impressive.

EA's first attempt?You dont mean battlefield right?
DeadlyFire  +   772d ago
I know damn. Its older than CoD, but I mean to kill MW sales.

Call Of Duty? A team game? It seems that call of duty is planning to get more team based and battlefield is planning on getting more lone-wolf based

team games are severely overatted.

One thing that would help promote more teamwork would be not incorporating K/D Ratio into objective based games. Too many people worried about getting kills than playing for the objective.

I've never understood the fascination with K/D ratios, it's such a meaningless stat. If you're running around only trying to maintain or increase your K/D whilst ignoring the objective, that doesn't make you a good player, quite the opposite.

I use to play CoD to mindlessly kill people. If I want to play a game with teamwork, I play something else. Everyone I know that plays CoD has the same attitude. Even IW/3arch knows this, which is why we finally acknowledge that every CoD game mode is about mindlessly killing dudes.

Take Sabotage, for exmaple. Who need to do any of that when you can simply kill the opposing team and win the match...which effectively turns it and all other into TDM. Domination? Usually has 8 dudes on each team capping the first objective, then every camps the middle objective. Why? For the mindless killing...

If I want objective based gameplay, I go to Battlefield or Killzone...not CoD.

I have played in team based matches in MW3, all you gotta have is nice people with mics playing. We assigned who defends where and where to go. But that is very hard to find in call of duty. Or in other words find grown ups with mics.

yeah, i have to agree here another thing to add is killstreaks I understand why people camp but way to many people do it to a point where the game is not even fun anymore. I hate playing a game knowing what to expect every single map. Specially when the whole team except maybe one or two that is doing it.

I hope black ops 2 does bring a team based element to the game. you can still have your hero games and team based games. i could go on for hours on other games that are the same way included BF3 and some others but i wait for an article on that.

The first 3 cod games are the best, the rest of them are trash...
Jdub895O  +   772d ago
yeah i agree with you...because everyone knows the first cod games were phenomenal.Cod4 was definitely just straight garbage.........right?
SecretPsycho  +   771d ago
From what i've seen no game has team work unless your with friends or people have mics on
