The Call of Duty community isn't happy about the Black Ops 4 server downgrade, and Treyarch has finally issued a statement to it.
And fix zombies damnit, its so damn broken atm. Game was released too early.
Fix and make it 60hz
This is a worse downgrade than anythig Ubisoft ever managed to do... seriously reducing the server tickrate from 60 to 20Hz on an online competitive game is far far worse and game play crippling thing than reducing some visual features in a SP game. Yet I see almost no one bat an eye over this...
What's stranger here is, they had it at 60hz in the beta! They downgraded it and what? Thought no one would find out??
Gotta save money where they can, despite having a very successful launch. They should release black out as a f2p and go the fortnit route tbh, but even then we will always get the short end of things
Its dishonest really.
@Nitro - I bet they will in x months but using it now to help sell copies of Blops 4.
This is why https://youtu.be/V9kzQ9xkly...
Have you seen the state of COD's online in at least the last 7-8 years? It's worse than my experience playing games like Quake 3, UT, CS etc like nearly two decades ago. COD fans are used to having a piss poor of an excuse for their online experience.
So agree but that was when we could use proper servers and game development by proper coders. Now its all invisible walls, no bots to fill player spots, poor player to player syncing and lag and a total lack of map imagination.
I agree 100% with you on this.
At least they're getting it tuned up or whatever. What gets me here is, if no one checked, they most likely wouldn't have even fixed it. Players like myself would constantly be getting shafted with bad hit registration and whatnot. COD: WWII did something similar too. It had Asia servers during the beta, but PULLED it when it was released. :(
Explain it to me like I'm 5...what is a ticker rate?
For anyone interested in netcode, I recommend the youtube channel Battle(non)sense. He does some great netcode analysis for a number of games. If you just want to understand the basics he has a video called Netcode 101: https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Its how frequently the server is updated with player data and vice versa. The faster the data exchange the less lag the end user experiences and the more accurate combat is.
Higher number=Good Lower number=Bad
Plz fix slow texture streaming it makes the game look blurry. It's not the game where you can stand still waiting for everything to load
"We’re constantly working to optimize the game, and particularly network performance, to ensure the highest quality online experience for our players." So does this mean they plan on doing dedicated servers for the console versions soon then? I'll go get my hat and see myself out. In fact, hilariously they didn't even address the issue. They just released a very generic bland statement. Sorry COD fans, cheap skate Activision strikes again trying to maximise their profits by cheaping out on what should really be a given in 2018
I highly doubt they'll do dedicated servers, which really blows my mind tbh
The PC Version already has them probably thanks to Blizzard though but nope, we won't see console dedis from any Activision game which is pretty sad considering the amount of money they make each year with COD.
Call of Duty and poor online issues, name a better duo.
When WWII launched the game wasn't even playable. The hub didn't work with other people, couldn't invite friends, people would get kicked constantly. A month in that shit still wasn't fixed and I never played it again.
MP & Zombies HUD is a mess, also there’s a weird bug that’s happening to me only when tryin to play local MP with friends (PS4Pro digital version): This only happens if you connect on title screen with an account other than the one you bought the game with: Launch game with other account - tap x on title screen to connect - choose play local, tap x to join main or friend account - tap multiplayer - tap play - game crashes. Not sure if others have had that happen to them or if the latest update has fixed it. Until the latest update if you want to play local MP with a friend, the account that bought the game must be the one that connects on title screen.
The way to fix this is to keep buying CoD every year regardless of the quality of the experience.
They just gotta have a whip round first or maybe crowd fund as let’s face it they’ve obviously not made enough Billions. Pass.
So even after an 11.5 GB update, the game still plays like crap. There is so much warping and I see people leaving every single game. Its frustratingly terrible. I bet they're hard at work on getting that COD points market up and running though.
If you really believe that Lagarch will fix these problems good luck with that. Less traffic more cash for Activision. They got exposed and without the people who exposed them they would continue with their garbage 20HZ tickrate servers. Now they have to react or people will stop playing the game. Well in reality they don't give a fuck. They already have your money.
Hopefully, this means 60hz. It wasn't stated in the statement.
They take in billions each year from cod but still refuse to spend money on servers and graphic upgrades. Activision is run by yahoos for sure
They won't improve shit, they'll optimize hit detection by making the TTK slightly faster so it seems like they've improved the performance, but they'll still keep us on their Goodwill servers for the lifecycle of the game
Battlefield V has women everyone's outraged. Call of duty downgrades servers no one cares. Really shows where the gaming community is today
That can't be true ! … every website has been giving nothing but glowing reviews of BO4 …. are you saying they wrote articles to boost sales and omitted telling readers about flaws, bugs, glitches or others negative experiences when they tested the game ???? Of course they lie, it' what they choose to do for a living, they choose to lie and omit and spin to get regular people to give up their $$$$ … great trustworthy people !
That's what yall get for continously support this weak franchise!! They always lie and yall always fall for the okeydoke lol
Only fools keep falling for the same trick, cutting content was cool since they where supposedly focusing on the multiplayer right? Activision keeps winning I guess some people only learn the hard way enjoy BO4 they already got your money.
I afraid that each years COD is losing its own identity. Remove the core aspect of game series was a mistake.
