In today's Black Ops 4 patch, Treyarch introduced Blackjack Stashes in Blackout, and it made the mode somehow pay to win, and the community is super upset.
Lol its about time
yeah, I knew it was only a matter of time before they added something like this but dam its funny cause the community was just praising them on not doing this stuff and then suddenly they are. Real gross though that they essentially took the RNG out of Battle Royale. I mean its still there, but players who earned/bought items are now guaranteed to get them.
Activision doesn't get as much hate as they deserve...
As happy as I am that they didn't fuck over Crash Team Racing Nitro Fueled with micro transactions, (I bought the game, and I am enjoying it greatly), Activision deserves just as much hate as EA for pulling shit like this with Call of Duty.
I'm glad I drop this game as soon as they introduced lootboxes into the game back in February.
Call of L
Oh activision as if the game wasnt predatory enough already. Such a shame they arent being called out as badly as ea on these scummy greedy moves. Imagine how badly MW will have it too post launch.
Agreed. EA is the poster boy for MTX and scummy practices, but Acti is equally guilty. Insane how they plan these out as well. Release the game without MTX, introduce MTX after reviews are out, integrate guns into loot boxes (essentially making it P2W), and voila.
Games been pay to win for a while now really, but now it's just extended to the Battle Royale mode. It's crazy how EA gets destroyed by the media and gamers for this kind of stuff, but Activision gets a pass everytime. Can't wait to see what they do for this years game.
In game ADs during the SP campaign in between missions
Are they trying to kill their own game?
Statistics proabably show on their data that idiots spending money on this stuff far outweigh the outcry. cause all they see is money.
Yep. Just go on Twitch and you see streamers spend thousands of money on these things, which is why Acti thinks it's worth it. Sigh.
Game has been dead for awhile now. The updates break the game, they "fix" the issues, and then continue to shove MTX down people's throats...
That’s called “meeting your profit goals”.
Pretty much, gotta milk this COD as much as possible before the next one comes out.
$0.99 red dot wasn't far enough.....
Doesn't matter, people are already bending over for their next game.
I blame casual gamers, can't stand them folks, they are the ones enabling this crap..screw you casual gamers, you are too misguided to see whats going on....Why is Call of Duty still popular I will never know man....
I wish I could upvote this 100 times. Sick of what most modern day gaming has to offer.
Exactly why I'm not excited for Modern Warfare. Microtransactions, supply drops, red dot sights, and pay 2 win BS, the multiplayer mode in Call of Duty is now completely monetized.
Glad this crap was not in WWII
Press F to flip off Activision
Activision love them some “surprise mechanics” too 😉
We don't like to call them that. More like "fun additions that we just happen to be charging you for" is how we like to term it.
So glad i did not buy this game. Was actually looking into today with the steam sales going on. Glad i saw this, now i can spend my money on something else.
I thought it was only on Battle.net
it is, just made me think about it.
Treyarch has become such a shit developer.
No one should be surprised by this. They see how far they can push people and what they can get away with
Fuck activi$ion and the people who support call of duty.
Surprised Pikachu meme Insert, You only need to look at how they handled Black Ops 3 to see where this was going to go, leopards don't change their spots, these developers didn't Instantly become cool, People should stop getting nostalgia from Blops 1/2 You asked to get fucked the moment you purchased this game, under this weird pretense that they can be "trusted" Trust Is something you don't just get, you earn, they've time & time again thrown It into the communities face, then what? Blame Activision? :O Blame yourselves, because you've supported this, downvote away =)
It's Activi$ion! What do you expect?
"A small subset of the community is outraged that the remaining 98% of CoD players will just have their parents buy this crap for them."
Might trade my copy in now I actually liked the IW system of gaining squad points to then buy crates and similar in WW2 earning points to spend. But bo4 it's completely different.
I'm not surprised, and neither should anyone else if you can't see these predatory practices from EA, ActivBlizaard/etc. then you're just a stupid person and live your life yo … but as for the rest who claim intelligence while playing this type of trash … well you're dumber than the people who accept they're not that smart …. aka retarded …...
This is what could of happened to destiny🤢
I'm glad I learned my lesson after destiny. Bo2 was my last cod also. Proud to say I don't support this garbage.
Honestly you can't still support COD and expect any different. Don't buy crap and then complain about the smell.
Man, Activision just does not care...
I left this franchise a while back and I don't miss it at all. I gave ww2 a shot but ultimately barely played it. It's just not for me anymore
You deserve it all for buying such a rubbish pc mod
no doubt this will also be added to Modern Warfare... so get used to it...
I was very interested in purchasing Modern Warfare, but I'm going to pass. I just cant stand Activision, and the only way my voice and frustrations will be heard is by not buying their games. They were ruining Destiny, and thank god Bungie was able to wiggle out of their grasp. Now Destiny is growing again, and they have change a lot of the games structure to better accommodate the fan base.
