Treyarch has those who only enjoy CoD’s single-player in its sights
The Call of Duty franchise has become one of the gaming industry’s most successful juggernauts over the past decade, with each new installment selling tens of millions of copies world-wide. Of course one of the series’ main draws is the online multiplayer, which in all honesty is the reason why the majority of players pay up their hard earned $60+.
Hopefully the Combat training will be alot better this time around.
it bugs me when the single player content is sparse so I just kinda just stop playing it, especially when the MP starts feeling a bit empty after a few hours, a lot of people may like MP in CoD but I'm just not one of them
you know what Cod needs? A mute all button. So tedious having to mute everyone in every single game. That's how horrible the community is...
The only shooter that i ever played on a regular basis online is Tribes Ascend, also Counter-Strike but that was back in school on LAN. I have tried a few others but its really people that make it not enjoyable to play online. So i am one of those people, i play quite the amount of FPS, but only singleplayer.
Also in that matter... back when i played LoL i actually put a piece of cartboard over the chat ---> much more enjoyable.
no, you're perfectly right. I am the idiot in all of this, you were right all along and everyone else should agree with you. now please don't bother me again
Don't think I'll being buying a COD anytime soon, anyway.
and so, pandaraph didnt buy a single cod this year. because fuck you treyarche and your multiplayer. hugs and kisses year round.
While I can enjoy multiplayer for a while, it feels like empty calories to me. Aside from issues with players with a swollen head, players that that constantly complain about others' tactics (some guy couldn't help but say "FUCK YOU!" right after I killed him), there's just a limit to the amount of enjoyment you can get out of it. Lame, unsportsmanlike players aren't new, they're just noisier today instead of being forced to only communicate in text while in a safe spot like back in the day. Anyway, it's just an endless grind with the leveling and collecting and when people start to memorize every detail of every map layout, it starts to get tedious and boring. You can have fun playing kickball for an hour or so, but eventually, you're going to want to watch a movie or read a book or something.
Me, I've never played anything from the Call of Duty franchise and for these reasons, I avoid it. I've also heard the single player campaigns are insanely short and the fact that they crank one of these out by every Christmas just screams of complacent development. Whether or not that's true is open for debate, but from what I've heard, the short development cycle (by modern standards) skimps on things like story and a single player campaign to complement it that takes longer than an afternoon or two to complete.
"Nice logic bro" is just a tool-like thing to say. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, but ya kinda came off like a douche, just me disagreeing with you I suppose. I completely understand what Oliver is saying because I do the same thing. If I know a game's single player is short, I will wait til $20 or less. I don't really love CoD, but it can kill a day for me.
Oh noez! I haz offended u a disagreeing opinionz! =O
First off, since when was "nice logic bro" a meme? Second, people will express disbelief to your opinions & beliefs. I'm expressing my opinion in that you're logic of buying a game you do not like simply because you have nothing else to do is completely flawed.
If you don't like disagreeing with you, don't post comments.
Treyarch seriously need to get over it. Not every one enjoys the multiplayer aspect of games.
I think it's hilarious when people get mad on COD... I just troll to get them even more pissed lol :D
*huge amount of DLC* Fixed ;)
Meh, and here I was hoping the article was going to be about how they were going to make their single player campaigns longer/better. Son, I am disappoint.
Only play the single-player? Yep, I fall into that category since I haven't gotten into the multiplayer in a CoD game since the first Modern Warfare game. I prefer a narrative honestly. However, I've also put over 200 hours into TF2 so I'm not anti-online-fps. I mainly have 2 issues with the multiplayer in CoD:
1) The other players.
2) The lack of incentive to actually work together on a team.
The first one is basically self-explanatory; you have assholes and preteens who do nothing but spout hate and (pardon my language) random f*ggotry. Then you also have all the guys who use cheap tricks, glitches, or just a horrendous amount of skill to rack up ridiculous kills on you so you don't even really have a chance to play the game for more than a few seconds before you're dead. Going back to TF2, that is why I hate the demo class (spamming SOBs...).
The second one kind of goes with the first in the way that no one cares to help each other out if the game mode is anything other than team deathmatch. It's all about getting a good K-D ratio, even if it means you fail the objective or ditching all your teammates.
So to Treyarch, I'm sorry you don't like the fact that I don't care to play MP even though I'm sure you guys busted your balls on it. My advice, go back to basics. CoD's mulitplayer has become too big and complex for me, besides, there's going to come a point where you can't keep adding crap to the game and maintain balance or simplicity (of course those kind of went away awhile ago).
Fuck the COD multiplayer. The single Player Campaign is 10000 times better.
WHAT THE HELL!? IM SO CONFUSED!? I have to many friends who never touched the single player...I was starting to think "why make single player if nobody plays it?".
LOL I agree sir!
I play the main campaign for the COD because its so awesome and action packed. Its draws me into the game. I play multiplayer for shits and giggles. Its fun but i hate it when i run into twelve year old children or the occasional man-child. I don't hear them in single player. Story is the other reason i play Main campaigns. I would like it better if it was with a friend or four.
Here's another idea (a crazy one I'll admit, but...): Work more on the single player campaign! Yeah, you probably won't please everyone, but you'll at least get a better majority.
