They have this stance in Pavlov and it's good. You have to have your gun down to run. You have a sense of give and take.


Modern Warfare 3: Players Convinced AI Bots Are Being Placed Into Real Matches

Reports from players have surfaced stating that they believe they are playing with or against AI controlled bots in Modern Warfare 3.

Wouldn’t doubt it. Enemies are either bad or incredibly good. Something just feels off about this game.

Yep. I've experienced this "bot-like" moment as well. It just looked weird and unnatural.

You're probably a noob. You'll end up in lobbies that has the same skill set as other players.

Probably because sales are so low that they have to fake it to make people think that the game is still being played.

Recently played a game on Quarry and there was a guy killing everyone on our team and was on top of the scoreboard. Ended up watching the kill cam and he was under the map raking up kills. Saved a clip in PS5 with his name also.

BF 2042 already has them to keep lobbies full and the bots leave when someone new joins. DICE announced this at launch because people were afraid they wouldn't ind 128 player games.

These might just be bots being run by users to level up faster or something and not bots set up by activision to fill lobbies

I can already sense them using Bots to manipulate their player count anytime their games are underperform or lack real players.
If these guys really do cared about their games once the servers are closed they should give us bots to play with in offline matches but again greed gets in the way so most of these are paperweight vaporware years down the line and fans have to keep prop it up modding it.

Call of Duty Studios Continue to Ignore the Community's Biggest Complaint -- SBMM

Sledgehammer might be the most communicative Call of Duty studio, but even so, the topic of SBMM is still ignored and that needs to change.

Jin_Sakai4d ago

Why are they so obsessive with SBMM? Literally know one likes it.

Sephiroushin2d ago

patents blatanly says to drive up microtransactions, so yeah long story short, for money...

DeusFever4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

SBMM is essential for keeping on-line multiplayer healthy. If you want to win every time, play single player on easy mode.

Jin_Sakai4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

If you think that’s all it does you should read more into it. It’s a load of BS is what it is.

“Activision files patent to negatively impact gameplay (specifically adding negative aim assist and lowering damage) of skilled players in multiplayer titles.“

“System and method for driving microtransactions in multiplayer video games”

“[0032] For example, in one implementation, the system may include a microtransaction engine that arranges matches to influence game-related purchases. For instance, the microtransaction engine may match a more expert/marquee player with a junior player to encourage the junior player to make game-related purchases of items possessed/used by the marquee player. A junior player may wish to emulate the marquee player by obtaining weapons or other items used by the marquee player.”


Feel free to read all the BS in the patent.

You should really do more research before you comment on it. If you knew what Sbmm truly was and how it works on recent Cods you would have never said "SBMM is essential for keeping the muilplayer healthy".

SBMM as it's currently implemented on CoD actually does the exact opposite of what you said.

smolinsk3d ago

I don't care. Love the challenge. Never heard or seen anything on the lowering the damage or aim assist anywhere of skilled players.

DFresh3d ago

This is a problem in all Activision games including Overwatch and Diablo series.

frostypants3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

It's EOMM, not SBMM. And it won't change if you keep playing it, and you keep playing it because it's working. They know they have you addicted. Prove them wrong if you want it to change. Apex Legends (and probably a lot of others) does the same thing. Yes, it is terrible.
