The Black Ops 4 Black Market tier 200 is the max level. If you're planning on attaining that goal, you best have a LOT of free time.
Who needs a job, anyway? Yikes.
It's already happening. I've played many games where there are players afk or afc on console. It's frustrating.
14 year olds lol. I saw people level 30 on launch day.
someone complaining about 14yo's on a forum lol. I sense that ur jelly
Or it's just a fact of life kids have more time than people who have jobs and support themsleves/others?
Michiel confirmed 14yr old. Not even sure what he sirk7x said was talking crap about them just pointing out 14yr old have more time.
There will be someone doing exactly that.
of course - there is no shortage of people who (don't work) live off of relatives or any number of govt handouts who have endless amounts of free time.
The disagrees are out of touch with reality or are indeed those exact folks.
volt, the disagrees are those people who i described. as i said, there is NO shortage of people who won't work and are comfortable abusing the system to get free handouts. disagrees have no meaning as far as what i'm saying - it's the truth and 10,000 disagrees won't change it - i wish it would change it, but it won't.
Please elaborate on the Govt handouts that will allow me to play games all day.
What if you're already rich?
Translation: I'm mad because other people have more free time than I do... The problem isn't any of those things it the fact that these companies add grind to encourage people to pay money for things that should be free and easily obtainable.
So you think that someone who works and is a productive member of society cant put in 7 hours a day into gaming? While I don't play every day, I have many days where 7 hours may be on the low end of the spectrum. I work full time, and have plenty of other things I'm interested in, or have other things which put demands on my time Free time is just that. Free for people to do what they want. People's availability may vary based on the demands or priorities in their life, but playing a lot of games doesn't mean someone is abusing the system, or some sort of loser
OK, calm down Mr./Mrs. "Only the poor are to blame," there are hundreds of different extremely high paying jobs that will allow a person that amount of extra time. Get your head out of your middle-class tax-avoiding ass.
Wow...a lot of disagrees for saying that playing games for a long time doesn't mean someone is a loser. I'd imagine that a lot of us here put a lot of hours into gaming. Maybe people think I'm defending the amount of time required to reach lvl 200 in this game. I'm really not. Just nucky's notion that only people who are abusing their local social services can put in a lot of hours into gaming.
rainslacker - you're wrong. where did i say ONLY people who are abusing social services can put a lot of time into gaming? i just followed up on the first comment. but, NOWHERE on this thread did ANYONE say that. also never said that playing games for a many hours means, AUTOMATICALLY, that someone is abusing the system - your reading comprehension needs work.
Also young teens who don't go outside.
Like you maybe? prove to me you aren't one of them. You can't can you.
@nucky You heavily implied that the people who would spend that much time on a game are somehow living off social programs, which is typically done to say that they're abusing such programs, although you didn't go that far. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but I'm curious the statistics to support your need to even say what you did as if it is a relevant or significant number, or your take on how many people living such a life actually have the income to buy games and pay for the internet to partake in this game's MP.
JoshOG (twitch streamer) did it in 3 days. Craziness.
I take it this is how COD Points will make its way? As long as no guns are included, I think I might be OK with it? Lesser of two evils and all that...
a lot of time... or a lot of cash! call of duty is disgusting, like who bought it
I did. And I'm really enjoying it thanks.
you are ruining the gaming industry, among others, thank you piece of ****
@platform This CoD actually seems like a decent game. The real piece of shit is the person that lets previous games prevent him from enjoying newer entries. You dislike this franchise so much that you waste your time commenting about it? Seems like ur the big fool here, not the people buying the game. How about u buy and play the game first before u start spouting bullshit
I am playing it, and it is a damn good game. Best Call of Duty in years.
1 - it's not a good game, not even close; 2 - there are better games in the same genre, why not buying these games?
@Platformgamer 1- I hate the building aspect of Fortnite and play on PS4. I enjoy the Battle Royal concept, but not Fortnite. Enter CoD BO4. 2- Name a better Battle Royal shooter that does not have stupid building mechanics. I'll wait... 3- Oh and as a bonus, I have not bought or even played a CoD game in over 3 years until now. No WWIII, Infinite Warfare, or BO3. I only spend ny money on what I like and as I said, I like BO4. After finishing Persona 5, I was ready for a game like BO4. Who are you to tell me what games are "good" or "bad", because in case you did not know, everyone has different tastes. Not everyone's opinion needs to line up with yours, and the majority obviously do not.
Yeah, for some reason I doubt it. Shouldn't CoD be a free to play by now?
Platformgamer Nobody here is "ruining the game industry", buying Call of Duty and pretending that you can't buy or are not supporting any other games is also silly. Regardless of how you feel it's probably the best CoD from a gameplay perspective since MW1/BO1, I do think it's overpriced given they took the campaign out but that doesn't make it bad, just wait for a sale.
The same could be said for Battlefield, Assassins Creed and most other major AAA releases.
indeed, but i specifically hate call of duty a lot
@platform thats not an excuse for being a big baby and insulting people over here.
Oh don't worry, I'm sure Activision has provided those who don't want to play 6 hours a day with "options"
Ya, one option is you don't have to reach 200. These are purely cosmetic things. You'll live. What exactly does the 200th level even get you?
"What exactly does the 200th level even get you?" A good stopping point to maybe move onto the next game?
Such a pathetic argument that you can't answer. Prestige has always been hard to get. So your guys argument that they made it harder to encourage MT has no merit.
And this is where the MT will coming in. Purchase 10 teirs for a set amount like Fortnite does. This would be 'there new way of doing things' as they put it the other day.
Wait so this websites "journalist" is playing the game and didnt try to recreate or extrapolate the "reddits" info to see if it was indeed a good estimation? The just said "maybe" and we are supposed to just be like yeah totally worth it. At this point this is just "News" from reddit through a lazy middleman. mp1st phoning it in now I guess.
Thats it?! Glad its not 6 hours and 45 minutes a day because thats where i draw the line. I dont even think i sleep that much on a daily basis.
It is a day, the title just can’t be longer cause of the 100 character restriction It’s 50 days with that much playtime per day if you go up 4 tiers
The title says 6 hours and 40 min... He said 6 hours and 45 min was where he drew the line and that 6 hours and 40 was no big deal. He is obviously being sarcastic and making a joke.
FYI: I've been playing since yesterday when the Black Market was made available, and I'm still at tier 3. I've definitely played more than four hours just today. It takes a long time to reach a tier to unlock something, and I doubt I'll get to 200.
For people speculating like idiots. Just like fortnite towards the latter half of the duration of black market, they are more liberal with the points you earn. And second and most importantly, its entirely optional if you don't like to grind you still have the skins like Dark matter you can unlock.
Jesus glad I skipped out on this.
I'd make it a government requirement you need proof of an income once a year to have an internet connection. Or charge double to long term unemployed types with no proof of income.
yes, let's start discriminating people... you have to be joking or you are just an idiot. sounds like you are making the next north korea or something
Lazy people are not on a category, why should they sit there doing nothing whilst playing COD on an internet connection paid for by the tax payers?? Are you aware some who do decent and honest work struggle to pay bills whilst lazy people do nothing and get it paid for. It's time these companies provided schemes where they charge them more to encourage them to work rather than video games all the time.
So....when my dad got cancer, and couldn't work for 18 months, he should have been denied the internet after 12 months? Despite him being on disability and unemployment during that time, making 60% of his normal income? It's good he had his savings, but he lost a lot of that during that time. Not everyone would be as financially sound as he was during that time. Of course, after, he couldn't get a job doing what he knew, because apparently in the year and a half he was off, the standards changed in his field, and he was incapable of learning it, despite him not being the one who would have built those standards in the designs of his work anyways. In other words, he was too old for these companies to hire him, so they found a legal reason not to hire him. So, during that time he shouldn't have access to the internet until he was 65, and could claim social security, or take a minimum wage job, despite being able to pay his bills until his eventual pension came around? My sister had a degenerative nervous disorder she was born with. Wasn't bad until about her mid-20's, except for some learning disabilities. but over time, she got to a point where she was unable to work. She had the ambition to, but couldn't physically do it due to constant illness. She was limited on the kinds of jobs she could take, and eventually, those kinds of jobs she couldn't do. She eventually went on disability. She would have lived on her own if she could. She talked about it all the time. But never would she actually be able to do that. Should she be denied internet because she lived off a social welfare benefit? My mother suffered from the same disorder. She was let go from her job about 4 years before she could collect social security. Those 4 years she didn't actually know she was eligible for disability, but she was in no condition to get another job, but she was the kind of person who would have worked. People have this great misconception that welfare systems pay enough money to live comfortably, with all the pleasures in life. There are people who abuse the system, but the vast majority who use these services are not, and people must really think that social workers are complete idiots who just approve this stuff no matter what, and not people who actually require a graduates degree to get a job in most states. More than likely, someone living on disability, or welfare of some sort, aren't buying up frivolities like internet. It's possible they're using it without buying it, as that isn't uncommon even for people who make money. Maybe I have a different view of social service programs because I've seen how it can actually help people. Not just my father, sister, and mother, but friends or other family members who can often use various services to make their lives better when things aren't going that great. I know a lot of people complain about all these people that abuse it, as if it's commonplace and the majority, but those people are eligible for the same benefits if things aren't going great in their lives, and for the most part, being lazy isn't a disability, and in most states, one is limited in how long they can collect benefits without actually attempting work, and social workers do ask why someone wasn't hired, or was let go from a job, so people who try and float, lose their benefits. For my part, if I ever had to use one of these services, I wouldn't be ashamed of it. I wouldn't want to, but I'm not going to apologize to anyone for it. I pay taxes now, and part of those taxes goes to pay for services like these. It's easy enough to complain about something you don't like paying for....until you may actually need it.
This is the problem with societies you say there is a problem and people like yourself go off the rails with stories are not what I am typing about. I said lazy people, fully able people who can contribute and refuse, the ones who sit there expecting everything for them paid for on a long term basis. Do you honestly believe some of these people who spend 100s of hours on a game have full time jobs? I highly doubt it so it's time to hit them hard, if you're unemployed and able you get charged more so it gives the incentive to work for it and get it for less.
So, make special rules? And I was replying to your comment that people need to provide a proof of income. You said nothing about lazy until later. But in that lazy comment, you mentioned that the tax payer was paying, so I assume you mean those on welfare. I don't know any person who gets the internet paid for them, unless it's family or maybe a sugar daddy or something. If they choose to use their welfare check for internet, then they are giving up something else. If someone is abusing the system, they'll probably also be able to use the special rules as well. How do you really determine if someone is lazy, vs someone who has an actual disability or need for welfare? The welfare system usually works itself out for lazy people, as most welfare isn't available to people indefinitely without an actual disability. People on unemployment, which isn't actually welfare but an insurance run by the state and paid for by the employers, are usually only eligible for six months in most states....even if they're disabled. The only real exception to that is if they are injured on the job, and if there is any question about if someone is actually able to work after a certain amount of time, you usually have to go to a doctor dictated by the state to get approval. In other words, there is a lot of work involved just to get benefits, and there are a lot of people who have to go to extraordinary measures to get what they should be eligible for. And yeah, I can believe that some of these people can put 100 hours into a game. I have put over 100 hours into some games without issue, and I work a full time job. You're making sweeping generalizations, with no statistics, and most of the people that complain about welfare are either politicians trying to use hyperbole to get votes or push an agenda, or people that really don't know how welfare works. The problem with chastising the lazy people the way you do, is that it inappropriately gives the impression that people on welfare systems are indeed lazy, and I take issue with that, especially if people don't provide any kind of statistics to support their conjecture.
Games as a service, you're welcome.
"you best have a lot of free time" smdh
Must not have gotten a free copy of the game? Or the article would have been - "It's the best CoD in years! The MTs aren't that big of an issue. I give it a 9.5. The only problem is it's not an exact copy of Fortnight. It's more like a replica "
Ugh...knew thered be a downside with this. 50 days and 200 tiers....played a couple matches and the progress barely even went up lol. Watch and theres gunna be a way to purchase tiers via cod points (real money).
I don’t think I could play much longer than 6 hours total :p
I don't know man. I don't mind people grinding. Reminds me of back when I was in middle school or high school. Getting home, picking up the controller and trying to prestige in MW3 through Black ops 2. Never got master prestiges on those games but it was always fun. Staying up, doing all nighters with friends at each others houses and even playing other games too. To be young and without a care in the world.
After a long day at work, the last thing I want to do is spend the rest of the day grinding xp to unlock something in a game I already paid £50 for.
This obviously does take into account double xp weekends where advancement would be quicker?
No it doesn't. Just an unscientific guess.
wish they had the earn cod points to spend of supply drops like in infinite warfare. i thought that was quite addictive
Cool when this comes to Xbox, I'm not even gonna get close to 200... But then again, I'm 27 and I have a job and college to attend to so 🤔
Anyone with a job isn't looking to "Max Tier" this game anyway. This title is reserved for the jobless, or for kids still in school.
Who Cares? If someone would like to attempt it, and has the time go for it. If not, no big deal. People whine and bitch about every frigging thing. Wah! Not enough content! Wah! Too juch and too time consuming! Wah! Only people on welfare can unlock those because they don't have jobs and work hard like me Wah!!! Nerds. Enjoy it for what it is. or don't, but stop crying.
Or you could just not play it
Too bad it takes all of 20 minutes for the redundancy to kick in
why are people complaining I'm a nurse on shift work and I can get in 7 hours a day
