Here are the top complaints, pet-peeves people have with Call of Duty's multiplayer. Do you agree or not? Let DeltaGamer know what you think
they forgot to mention.. there all the same GAME! ... it's called DLC !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!
I hate how people say its the same game. It is obviously not the same game as it has a different title, story, and it does in fact have new stuff when it comes to multiplayer. Madden games are essentially the same games.
Forget it, COD threads are for the COD haters now. Your not allowed to enjoy what you want in peace anymore.
Assassin's Creed/Yakuza games come out every year with minor changes as well. Why don't these games get the same hate COD gets on N4G?
They should spam the site with nothing but COD articles so we can laugh at the haters and their comments. I'm sure they'll get bored of it after a while and go find something else to moan and b*tch about.
@LOGICWINS Go look at Assins Creed Brotherhood's multiplayer, its completely original, and mind blowingly fun. Go look at Cod4, Cod5, Cod6, Cod7. What has significantly changed for the better? Has matchmaking and lag and connection issues improved?
What I don't understand is that if people dislike COD so much...why put so much time/energy into telling everyone how much they dislike it? Why nt just ignore it?
I agree. There is a lot that goes into games other than visuals and mechanics. Each Call of duty game has given me a different experience because of the story and minor tweaks.
The thing is, activation know they can get away with putting out the same re hashed game with some changes and get away with it because they know people will still buy it
1. Campers 2. Campers 3. Campers 4. Campers 5. Campers 6. Campers 7. Campers 8. Campers 9. Campers 10. Campers Campers are the reason stop playin cod games after a week they make the online almost unplayable, removes the purpose of Team Deathmatch
I am really tired of hearing people complain about campers. I stay mobile throughout the entire match and I don't have any trouble getting around campers. If people would spend half the time learning the maps as they do complaining about campers, then they would be able to counter them. Here are a few tips: 1) Check your map. 2) Check your corners. 3) Use your tactical grenades. 4) Change your route if you keep getting killed. 5) Use teamwork and communicate. I mean really who is to blame? The guy sitting at the window taking shots, or the guy who keeps running into the path of the bullets, expecting a different result each time?
im a camper if you keep getting killed by me 10 times on the same spot than its your fault sorry...
Camping is a tactic that's as legitimate as running and gunning. Some maps are built for it, others not so much. I've rarely had an issue with campers.
It´s not CoD. It´s the community. Yes, the game has grenade launchers, RPGs, and things that´ll make people rage, but that doesn't necessarily mean you HAVE to use it. does not
I personally wish they would remove 203's and rpg's from Ranked MP. The rest i like enough. My favorite part abotu COD though is it gets my whole clan together to play.
I agree with all except 6 not everyone that is older sounds their age. I have friends who are in their 30's who sound like they are 16. I don't know if it's the headset they are using or what but it can be funny.
i hate all the damn glitches and campers
only top 10?
I agree with this list 100%, but I would also add... Constant killstreaks and annoying 10 year olds, among other things
Yeah, the 10 year old, racist homophobic little bastards are what ruined it for me (Halo too, for that matter) Sure you can mute them, but tell me it doesn't get old muting an entire lobby at the start of almost every match. I gotta say, the problem doesn't seem AS bad on the PSN, but it's still there. Thankfully games like Killzone aren't swamped with little kids - so I can still get my multiplayer fix without having to continually shake my head, wondering what the hell is wrong with the younger generation. Edit: Oh! I almost forgot. And I suck. That takes a lot of the fun outta a game. I don't know what happened. I used to hold my own no problem on COD4 and I was still able to hold my own when MW2 came out, but somehow either I got hit in the head and suddenly lost my ability to function or everyone is a master at this game because it seems like I can run around for 38 seconds, not see a single opposing team member and suddenly someone has a nuke or airdrop or gunship or some such crap and it's all but over and I'm left scratching my head wondering how the hell that happened so quickly, then either quit and play something else or jump into a match of S&D. And then the $15 map packs. Wtf is with that? I can buy whole games for $15. Don't get me wrong. I don't hate COD. I'll be right there when MW3 comes out. I just don't care for what the online has devolved into. I used to play COD to death back when COD4 was new. It's just not the same anymore.
lol @ darkride. i just had to read your usually boring post to see what digs you would make towards the 360... and ofcourse i wasnt disappointed. i thought you no longer had live so how would you know that it is obviously worse than the sony fanboys gaming utopia that is the psn. get a life man. btw, i have the psn, and when people have mics, there are the kiddies on there aswell! or is that fanboys here different things to gamers?? sad on topic, after the great game that was cod4, they lost there way with over the top perks, terrible hit detection, and gernerally trying to improve upon something that was already pretty much perfect! it's a shame coz i spent days on cod4, and loved every p90 dominating minute of it. i wont be buying mw3 until i see what it all about
I loved COD4 as much as the next guy but it was still IW that made the game. It too was glitchy and cheap at times. Only thing that has changed is that they've taken out some cheap/noob friendly stuff and replaced it with some other cheap/noob friendly stuff. I sold off Black Ops because I couldn't stand the multiplayer. But don't get me wrong, i'm still looking to get MW3. And yes, i'm getting BF3 also. They're both totally different.
p90 the gun that noob built
I love how people hate games they're not good at. I'm not defending the game, I couldn't care less about COD, but stop bitching about games people enjoy and play something YOU will have a good time with. also, it's called the MUTE button. You press select on "the annoying 10 year olds" as you call it and it mutes them. Viola! No more noise. It's pretty simple guys.
That's very true.... all the COD haters do need to just realise that no-one is forcing them to play the game! I grew bored of COD and never play it anymore, personally I prefer BF:BC2, but many people love COD so why shouldn't they be able to play it? Some people like to complain it is noobish... but it is no different to watching a movie... not everyone wants to sit down and watch a masterpiece movie... some people want to throw on an explosions and special effects movie that requires no actual following of the story to enjoy it... I do personally think it will be a good thing however if COD's domination of sales is reduced and it is bought more into line with other FPS's... as that will help with competition and innovation..... hopefully...
My hatred for CoD stems from the fact that it ruins other games. Developers are so busy trying to compete with CoD that everything now has to have killstreaks and perks. Also because CoD is so easy, most other games by comparison are too challenging for the CoD only player and thus they need to get on forums and bitch and complain until they get that game nerfed.
@BeaArthur Well, that's a problem with the dev teams, not CoD.
MidnytRain...partially yes but players are also partially responsible. If they would just except the fact that not everything is CoD, then other games wouldn't get nerfed. God forbid they learn how to play something other than Call of Duty instead of whining.
I' m good with FPS ( most of them ), and I agree with this list. Plus it' s so easy, after few hours of play ( CoD 4 MW ) I was alredy first almost in every match also if there were players of higher lvl ( like 20 levels of difference or so ) ... and I was using a G3! Same goes for CoD World at War. IMHO Battlefield Bad Company 1 & 2, Killzone 2 & 3, MoH, Resistance 2, MAG, and even Homefront are better. It' s not about "hate" for every player that don' t like CoD/MW. I would not to like a snob, but I really think that CoD/MW are really too noob friendly and overrated. PS: I' m not camper-like gamer ;)
I just stopped buying them.
COD4 was nearly perfect minus martyrdom and host advantage. Then infinity ward went all out bat shit crazy with MW2 with overpowered killstreaks, commando, terrible map design, broken spawns and OMA noobtubes. Effectively killing what was a great multiplayer experience
I wouldn't go as far as to say COD4 was nearly perfect... but it was a bloody good game, I had many hours of enjoyment on it! The funny thing is, when MW2 came out, for about a month I thought it had improved on COD4 as I was enjoying playing with all the new toys..... then I realised the truth..... it just isn't as good!
Martyrdom was fine, I almost never got caught by one because I always expected it so got the hell outta there and whenever I used it, I somehow got a kill pretty much every other death. I was disappointed with it's removal in MW2 since it was so easy to avoid yet would strangely always seem to catch people out. Last stand was far more annoying. Running away from an inanimate grenade is much easier than trying to finish someone off before someone steals the kill. Host advantage was pretty annoying though.
Oh wow another "hate CoD" article. I never read one of these! :P
You do, however, take the time to comment on them!
And why not?
^^No good games to play? lol
^^ All sorts of great games to play why do you ask?
What do you recommend?
I agree with this article because of its valid points. However, I know I will be buying MW3 for my 360 because my friends list will my playing it. My PS3 will be harboring Battlefield 3. Yes, kids, a person can own each title without the world imploding on them.
so the world doesnt implode, i gotta check this multiplatform stuff out!!1
multi platform is the only way my friend
the very notion of that makes my head hurt and my stomach itch at the same time.
I can't believe I agree with the list.
I would say that the biggest problem is the community. Not within CoD games but the fact that they migrate to other games and ruin them with their "everything should play like CoD" attitude.
I think the community is partly the problem in that case. Ultimately though I blame the developers that try to be just like COD.
I agree 100% about kids complaing about not being COD like on other games. Gets old listening to it.
I'm not too familiar with COD but this sounds so frustrating for people who do play it. O_O
Agreed 100% ! Yes im biased.
CODS allright if you have a few beers and just want to have a laugh with your family and friends while rowing online with kids (the fun part :p)
Agree with the whole list, but i think #10 should be #1. The Lag in all the CODs since 4,is horrible. I remember jumping in and out of lobbies with my party trying to get host in COD4, the only way to keep it from laging, good times.
The bullet cancellation is my biggest gripe ever, it seems as though when your playing he who fires most wins which is half of the reason why semi auto weapons seem so inferior and half the reason why if you are shooting someone and you are being shot they suddenly develop terminator esque health and then you die. Unbelievably frustrating.
I hate the you shoot a guy on your screen who look slike he is not even shooting back then you die . You watch kill cam and he had been shooting you in your side the whole time and it looks like you didn't even get a round off.
Hi everyone! Thanks for the comments! I am in no way hating on Call of Duty and I am not a noob at it and those are not my reasons for writing this. This is an observation shared by many people as well. :) I also wrote it in the end part that Battlefield will be next. Hope you guys like it as much. :)
alright list...but to be honest people are better then you online that should be on the list(and thats why you hate it)
I've never played a COD game, and probably never will.
Should try it, it's fun :)
For five minutes.
COD haters arent good at the game? Thats vice versa, most of the people who suck at the game love it because of the simple fact that they have the CHANCE to get a killstreak. People like me who rape it because its a nooby ass game, abhor it My highest was 121-10 and averaged 30+ K/D every game, let alone always being the target for "nigger" every time i was in 1st place which 95% of the time Im not saying you cant like COD but seriously the excuses for its shortcomings are just stupid
10, 8, 6, 4, 2, 1 are the only valid points, and even the 8 and 6 are the same thing. If people on care about k/d surely that is a,community issue? 9 - Squads arent necccesassry but clearly they help. I usually only play Blavk Ops with one or two friends, and we al have k/d ratios of around 2. Yet whenever we play against 5 or 6 people who are obviously friends we get outdone or at least pushed hard even if there stats are worse. The point being team play isnt needed but it helps. 7 - Its possible to be killed but have the bullets you fired just before dieing kill your oponent, it happes all the time. 5 - Game does not promote camping, it just allows it. I run around like a 'headless chook' in FFA but because I know what um doing I have a kil death of 2.14 and win/loss of 2.05 playing mostly FFA. Campers may get better k/d's than me but they cant get kills fast enough to win a game. 3 - Skill does decide who wins, even with perks you still have to know your weapons strengths and limitations and decide whether you should take on an enemy or get closer. You can always play the modes which dont allow perks if you cant stand them.
The most insignificant stat in all of gaming. The KD ratio. I have friends that can list their KD ratios for CoD4,[email protected],MW2, and Black ops, but can't tell me when was the last time that captured an objective. That's what drives me nuts about CoD. Too many kids out their wearing their KD ratios like a badge of honor. Like that s*** means something in the other 10+ game modes. The author didn't list it individually, but he did hint at it. Certain game modes can be won without doing anything but killing. When was the last time you actually took part in a S&D match that was decided by someone destroying the objective? You don't need to. Just sit around and kill off the people that are actually trying to complete a mission. Disarm a bomb every now and then you noobs. What's really bad is the fact the the IW/Treyarch know this and don't care. Why else would they allow killstreaks in a S&D match. You know how it goes. You're the only person near the objective and have plenty of time to capture it but guess what? Here comes the death machines...usually an airstrike. The author also left out how pointless Hardcore mode is. It's just 20 minutes picking off those that actually want some sort of conflict while of hiding with silencers and some form of camo...all the while racking up killstreaks that do even more damage. Lastly, this isn't the devs fault but and this is directed only at those guilty of it..... Hello RPG spammers. Why don't any of you fools shoot down killstreaks? Every one of you have an RPG strapped to your backs, but none of you are willing to shoot anything other than that one guy camping on 2nd floor in Nuketown. Yes, I know he's killed you and 3 other people but how about you take out the insta-kill death bots flying in the sky that's already racked up 10+ kills. Kinda reminds me of Healer guy in Bad Company that never drops a health pack, or Engineer guy in Killzone 3 that never repairs the f***in ammo crates. God I hate those guys.
A LOT of people only play team deathmatch. Where KD ratio is the most significant stat.
There are COD haters like me, then there are COD hater haters. Its a never ending cycle. Here is why I hate COD. Okay, lets look at COD 4. A phenomenal game that reinvented multiplayer gaming and even campaigns. It was fun, brutal, and balanced. It deserved its hype because it was new, and genre-defining. Then, a mere year later, boom! COD 5, making little to no advances. Then the next, MW2, which was hyped to the moon. It show slight advances, but mainly in presentation. It sells millions. Then Black Ops, once again showing little advancement. It is also hyped to the moon and sells millions. All of the released map packs are also incredibly successful. Now, we have MW3, which is ONCE AGAIN, being incredibly hyped, not as much as MW2, but close. It already looks to have minimal advancements, and it's going to sell millions. We also have COD Elite, which will have millions of subscribers. Here is my point. I hate COD because it is a series that gets extreme hype and sales every time, no matter how similar it is to last years game. People buy it in droves and play only that, even though there are BETTER games that actually deserve these sales and the hype. COD always gets a free pass. It is also a double frustration knowing that this is all supporting Activision and that bastard Bob Kotick, who really couldn't give a sh*t about gamers, ONLY their money. MW3 (on PS3) will sell more than UC2's lifetime sales in a few months or so after the release. All because of the hype, as usual.
LOL at the list but Battlefiled is not exactly balanced either. Always, one team is raping other one. LVL 48 here and 80% of the time, I always join the server where all lvl 50's on one side and under 20's are on the other team. Hence, the rape begins.
That's poor team balancing, though. BFBC2 does a bad job with re-balancing teams between rounds. The issue with CoD is poor weapons/perk/killstreak balancing. There is no good counter for "Commando Pro", other than your own "Commando Pro". It's a cheap-a** perk. Every weapon in BFBC2 has a counter you can pull out to take them down. Though I do think it could use more AA guns on certain maps...
motion sensors, claymores, shooting the enemy before he gets within 10 feet of you?
u guys may say watevr u wnt....but plz....remembr whn COD4 hd cum, v wr soooo hpy tht v finally got such a game with impressive mp(multiplayer)....guys dnt get me wrong but....y is it tht whn e franchise gets so popular, v tend 2 hate it n desire its competitor(BF3) 2 demolish d game...guys i lov BF3 a LOT....bt i wud hve 2 choose btwn d 2, i wud go 4 MW3....not coz its mere COD title...bt INFINITY WARD dos mke gud games...both MW n MW2 recieved a metacritic score of 94...guys it jus shows us all tht these game have QUALITY...n 1 more thing, if u guys thnk tht its mp sucks, y d hell ppl stil play BO n MW2....guys i myslf play MW2 evrydy atleast 4 2 hrs with hundreds of ma frnz n evn if my team is losing or m nt playng gud, i njoy soooooo much shooting ppl around n earning killstreaks coz the gameplay is FAST!!!

wow totally agree with what was in the story.
