Call of Duty fans are the "best online community in the world" - Activision

OXM UK: "Call of Duty doesn't just have the biggest but also the "best" fanbase, reckons Activision, and that's precisely why paid subscription service Call of Duty Elite is the logical next step for the shooter franchise." (Activision, PC, PS3, Tag Invalid, Xbox 360)

If these spawn camping retards are the best online community in the world I'd rather play single player for the rest of my life

Me too, well, I play only on PS3 and only play COD4 but even there are some really annoying fools around. By far not the best commuity, the people playing Killzone are pretty good mostly.

All people on KZ and BFBC2 seem to be way sounder than COD noobs.

On COD there's so much racism, trolling and generally spiteful behavior, You never hear people actually working as a team or making friends.

On KZ and BFBC2 Someone will just be like 'hey he's on the roof behind you' and generally be more mature.. And people on those games can actually hold a conversation.

Not saying there aren't people like that on COD, Its quite a prevalent observation though...

BFBC2 is a much better team orientated game and has a much better community than CoD. Sure, you have the nice guys on CoD and the immature 12 year olds on Battlefield, but there seems to be more immaturity on CoD.

LOL who wouldn't expect Activision to say something like this.

Captain Obvious? where art thou???!!
tigertron  +   1471d ago
Not trying to stereotype here by saying that all COD players are bad, but...LOL! I can't say I'm surprised though, Activision are hardly going to say that BF has the best online community in the world.
darkgoon3r96  +   1471d ago
To be honest, if anyone has Battlefield, anyone would know that Battlefield has the best community, by far, atleast to my experience.
theonlylolking  +   1471d ago
For a fps...probably but on the xbox the community in BF is poor compared to PC and PS3. The peeps that play on the PC has the best community from all consoles for BF.

Peeps in granturismo, socom, battlefield(PC), etc... are pretty good. I think GT has the most friendly online I have played.

I can't think of a single online community that I'd actually want to hang out with in reality.

Bonobo12345  +   1471d ago
Skate community?
LBP? (the whizz kids lot who make levels)
Warhawk peeps are cool
Always sound people on KZ
GT peeps?
Valvatorez  +   1471d ago
Great,I'm after spitting my tea all over my screen.Activision,next time warn us when your gonna pull a joke like that!

That's like saying that AIDS is the best STD in the world.
Son_Lee  +   1471d ago
AIDS does have the most victims, like Activision has with Call of Duty fans, so that comparison is actually correct.
Jack-Dangerously  +   1471d ago
Lol Bravo, way to turn that around ;)
creatchee  +   1471d ago
So does that mean that Halo is herpes, Killzone is gonorrhea, Battlefield is hepatitis, and Resistance is chlamydia?
Son_Lee  +   1470d ago
No, cause all those series are actually still good and relevant, even Halo.
Wizziokid  +   1471d ago
yeah if you like screaming kids
MysticStrummer  +   1471d ago
Screaming racist kids.

It's not really a "Community" because a the word community gives you the idea that people are somewhat in a co-operation and friendliness about it, both of which CoD does not have.

What it does have, though, is screaming 11 year old brats from Newcastle who love to do what they think is sniping.

Let this "community" be then, as it filters them from all other proper gamers.

a community doesnt have to be friendly...i mean look at N4G. i H8 90% of you guys but its still a community.
Undeadwolfy  +   1471d ago
EazyC  +   1471d ago
Am I one of that 10%? =D

No, a community does not *have* to be friendly, as CoD so brilliantly shows us, but I think more often than not they are.
D0ffy  +   1471d ago
LMAO, try watching "How to annoy people on Black Ops" on youtube and take a look at those screaming kids playing in the multiplayer. When you've done that, come with a statement like that again. Jesus.
Ace_Man_6  +   1471d ago
These fans are like John Cena fans, utterly retarded
EazyC  +   1471d ago
John Cena has fans?
Ve3tro  +   1471d ago
Lol no.
MidnytRain  +   1471d ago
Well, it looks like a few people might have taken this the wrong way. I believe when they say "best", they are talking about dedication. Alot of people are serious CoD addicts. If I ever released a game, I'd want a fanbase that sticks to my game like CoD.
Ninver  +   1471d ago
their only saying that cause the 12 year olds keep buying their games. frankly from my experience on both xbl and psn, cod online community is the most retarded and disgusting community anyone developer could pray of having. i'm glad to say cod4 was my last activision game i ever purchased this gen.
SixShotCop  +   1471d ago
Congats! One less dirty beaver to deal with.
iNMyFiN4LH0uR  +   1471d ago
i doubt 20 million 12 year olds are picking a COD game every year. and i highly doubt every person you met is a racist, disgusting or retarded. so please don't write a comment that makes YOU look retarded. the game has the biggest community so you'll find a lot of those but at the sametime you'll also find normal players. you COD haters are really getting pathetic for attacking the game for the little things. you lads love BF3, Warhawk, Starhawk, Counter Strike or whatever so be it, but this animosity, this arrogance perhaps even jealousy of the success of the game despite your claims is getting ridiculous and pathetic. peace.
Animal Mutha 76  +   1471d ago
I agree its not really a community like CSS on steam.

Activistion should say - the best spending community because they always buy more of our shovel DLC.
Fishy Fingers  +   1471d ago
I dont know, I find the PC similar to CSS, because after you've played for a good period of time, you tend to stick to the same servers and learn the regulars.

Consoles arent quite as simple because of the 'matchmaking' crap.
Jijoro  +   1471d ago
The other communities are haters
CaptainPunch  +   1471d ago
I laughed at the title
BlueEye  +   1471d ago
Yes I'm sure CoD's community of homophobic slur throwing idiots is better then all the others.
MysticStrummer  +   1471d ago
I guess better means "Willing to buy the same game yearly, along with overpriced DLC"
Son_Lee  +   1471d ago
This is why I'm buying Battlefield 3 this year. It's my first Battlefield game, as well.
2fk  +   1471d ago
well you're in for a treat, be prepared to spend many hours of your life ;)
Fishy Fingers  +   1471d ago
Wouldnt say its any different from any other online community. Plenty of good gamers just happy to play together and have fun and of course, plenty of douchebags who whine and moan about any and everything.
Baka-akaB  +   1471d ago
In an ideal world maybe . In pratice not really imo . I dont think that COD with its huge and mass demographic appeal would have the same community spirit , level of respect and usefulness than say Metal gear online , socom , mag , warhawk on ps3 or graw , PGR , forza and rainbow 6 on 360 .

Surely you'll find nice folks like everywhere , but quite often it's not the same spirit given the "fast food" nature of cod itself .

I guess thats the problem with matchmaking on consoles. As I play mostly on PC I tend to stick to the same servers and you actually get to know the regulars, so maybe I dont see the whole picture.
BombDrop  +   1471d ago
The only reason Call of Duty fans are the "best online community in the world" is because they love getting ripped of every year with over priced maps
ShinnokDrako  +   1471d ago
if it's a joke it's not funny. If it's not a joke, it's very VERY sad....
DNAbro  +   1471d ago
uhhh no. it's actually one of the worst "communities" in gaming. Just because you have a crap ton of people playing doesn't mean it's a good community.
ViserysTargaryen  +   1471d ago
It seems all the racist douche bags and homophobes switched from Halo to join the CoD community.
Cablephish  +   1471d ago
Biggest? Sure.
Best? That's a longshot, Activision.
