Activision has given a statement regarding the patent that states matchmaking is being used to influence gamers to buy microtransactions.
Pay 2 win BS is everywhere this must stop with always online and DRM on consoles.
To all of you who always said MTs are optional and still do, enjoy!
Yeah, this is where people have been fooly blinded about this. For example, Black Ops 3 MP is pay to win because the weapon is locked behind the supply drop. You have to be super lucky to get those weapon, but the chances are very rare.
Those words mean nothing, just trying to calm us down. “Yeah guys no need to worry....yet”
Oh joy...just what we want in our games...
Yet another reason to pass on the new COD!!!
As if we needed anymore.
Surely this can be classed as cheating on a server scale. If serious action can be taken against cheaters in game then surely gamers can take action against developers/publishers applying this to their servers. Either way it really is a scumbag move & proves 100% beyond question that Activision is willing to negatively effect their customers experiance in order to coerce more money out of them.
Pay 2 win is so stupid
AAA Gaming is on a downfall. We are on the trend for paid 60 dollar games turning into F2P mobile games. Indie games seem like the most reasonable future of gaming. Seeing games like Cuphead, Hellblade, Rocket League, and many other games becoming successful makes me optimistic. The only AAA Gaming corporations I see having a bright future of gaming is Sony, Nintendo, and somewhat Bethesda. But how long will it be before these companies submit to this shitty model? RIP EA, MS, Activision, Ubisoft, and Take-two Interactive you are corporate powerhouses exploiting gullible gamers.\ Sad day in gaming.
Holly cow, they actually did it.. Looks like the future of gaming is gonna suck.
Governments need to ban this practice and fast. Only then will we see improvements, i fear the mobile games and casuals are ruining the industry for all of us.
This is seriously getting rediculous. Activision never had a vision for gaming in years and now will rely on MT. Its the government or someone stops this cause if others get influenced by this... it maybe time to stop being a gamer
