Cheat Code Central takes a look at why Call of Duty's Prestige might be the laziest idea in game development history.
When I see people at 10th prestige + I wince a little because I know how much time they've spend getting there. I've done it once to unlock the emblems and I'll be sticking at 55 now and just playing socially with friends. I do like unlocking all the attachments and going for the golden weapons though.
What time ? The latest copy & paste edition gives you xp pretty much for doing nothing, all that to simplify ranking up for all kiddies and mlg pros lol
And by eating doritos and mt dew.
MAG had the best concept for prestige in that you would be dedicated to a faction until you reached your level cap. At which point you could prestige/veteran then get the option to cross-over to another faction. Most people done a full 'tour of duty' before settling on a faction.
Yes, COD's prestige system is so simplistic yet so groundbreaking. It's essentially an addiction, and is one of the greatest forms of marketing we've ever seen. Hats off to Activision and whoever came up with the idea.. Heck, prestige shaped COD multiplayer which shaped modern shooter multiplayer. In fact, this popularity is what even allowed competitor Battlefield 3 to be made in the first place.
well i think they messed up in the celebration that follows leveling up stuff on mw2 and mw3 i forgot how blops 1 was but leveling up in those games is intense unlike in black ops 2 sometimes i dont even know i leveled up untill the match is over
its the stupidest idea why wold you punish someone for wanting to do better in a game?
I've never prestige before in any COD game. I really don't care for a "badge of completion" for doing the same thing over and over again.
I maxed out every prestige and every challenge in COD4. Black Ops 2 is the first once since I have actually had a desire to do that again. The fact that your weapon progress doesn't reset and you gain a permanent unlock token per prestige, it makes it fun now. I don't get the time I use to during college and what not, being married and full-time employment hinders my gaming, so i typically play COD to socialize with my friends who have moved around the USA. It's nice to continue to level up and what not, it's enjoyable to me.
Prestige is the dumbest thing ever. Once u get there its time for your sheep ass to put your preorder in for the next installment
