    Mainly in regards to how post-launch content is handled almost exclusively across the board nowadays. CoD’s competitors (BFV, Fortnite, now Apex Legends etc) are all either F2P or have a free Live Service in place. Honestly, this can all be traced back to Fortnite. If that game hadn’t been the most successful the industry had ever seen, then the method of releasing 3-4 DLC’s with a season pass would probably still be the norm. Personally, I have no problem paying for map packs. So much effort goes into the Zombies maps alone that I feel that my purchase is worthwhile.

    The thing about Fortnite is, look at their revenue numbers.   Yes it is Free to play, but based on the stats, people are ending up buying so many of the little trinkets that they offer they end up spending $100+ on the game over time.  Personally, and this may be different to some, I much prefer buying my digital deluxe COD for $100 and that's it.  I don't spend a penny more, yet I still get hundreds upon hundreds of other customization items over the years, and I get all of the zombies content and MP content.

    For me personally it did feel this way since BO II, but I gotta agree, slowly but surely it got worse over time, but Classified and IX are a nice breath of old air. Have you tried those maps?

    Yes, Those are the two I have played the most.  I LOVE IX. It is super fun.  My only gripe with it is the boss zombies appear waaaayyyy too often, it makes it a little less fun, but still it is the map I've played the most.  I'm very glad they gave us such variety with 4 maps in BO4, I'm enjoying it a lot.  And as time goes on I'm sure I'll learn the intracacies of the other 2 maps

    Obviously I haven't taken the time to learn this map yet, but in general I have had a much harder time in BO4 than any previous COD.  Seems much tougher to me.  I have a round 66 on Mob of the Dead.  Oh well, guess I need to watch 2 hours of youtube videos as is custom with the new era of zombies maps in order to learn how to make it anywhere out of the 20's

     

     

    Also no offense meant, but it seems like several of these screenshots show people on either custom mutations or beginner/easy/ whatever is left of Normal mode

    Yeah definitely agree with you. I want to be able to jump into maps and just play. Most of the time figuring out "quest" stuff is fun for the first few times and then it just gets really annoying chore you have to do. Just have the basic things available without too much of a hassle: power, perks, PAP, mystery box, WW in the mystery box... Everyne was super hyped for zombie chronicles in BO3... a dlc that consisted 7 WAW and BO1 maps that aren't very complex. Now a lot of people are most hyped about Classified, another BO1 map remade. Treyarch should be aware of this.

     

    What comes to mutations, which I haven't really looked up yet cause I don't want to know too much before getting into the game, it can be fun to tweak some options around but I really REALLY hope it disables all leaderboard stuff for that run. If it doesn't might as well just not even track highest rounds anymore.

    Im pretty certain it disables leaderboards, but still, anyone who uses that stuff is going to be unconcerned with the leaderboards anyway.    It really diminishes the game mode, and the reason the mode became so popular in the first place is because the game flowed so well.   You had to earn points to open doors and get better guns, and as you did the enemies get stronger, and you have to find better weaponry and or locations to survive.   I mean how stupid and boring will these maps be with a mutation that allows you to start on round 1 with 50 grand?    Custom games on BO2 weren't too bad because you chose the starting round, and then got some more points to coincide, but jeez all these maps will be opened and explored in 5 seconds if you just start round 1 with 50000 points. Ruins the whole concept of the mode imo


  5. Long time no see folks.   What I really hope to see this year is a return to a mode that is accessible to everyone, from those who play for 30 minutes while waiting for their friends to get on MP, to those like us here who are hard core fans.   Blundell so far has completely alienated all of my friends who i used to binge zombies with in the BO1 days.   Now part of that is us getting older and gaining more responsibilities.   But much of it is that every map is so complex that you need to spend 3 hours studying youtube videos just to succeed on the map.  Used to be you had to do that for the EE, but you could play the map without any real complex instructions.      Now you end up doing 40% of the EE just to unlock the Pap machine.  That's dumb as hell

     

    Now also i have seen some of the leaks of these "mutations".  Dude starts a game of Voyage with 50,000 pts.   WTF is that shit?   fuck why even make doors or points at all?   that is some big time bull shit.   I think Jason Blundell is a decent story teller, sucks ass at making maps, and also should be a pariah for bastardizing the great story we had originally in zombies from WaW to BO2 Buried.   He should have just started a brand new story when they had him to origins

     

    I know my opinions are not popular, but it isn't just 1 or 2 people I know who quit around the time of Origins.   It's like 15 of my friends who I played zombies for hours and hours over the years with, and they all quit trying because it had lost the simple fun gameplay that made the mode so fun in the beginning.

    Honestly, if Blundell is the story man and responsible for the direction - which we know he is. Then he is solely responsible for BOIII and the utter disgrace he brought to the franchise and to the ending of this story.

    We bought into this for years and all he has done is ignore pretty much everything that was before BOII and took us on a widl tangent of aliens and apothicons and utter fucking drivel.

    Compete and total waste of my time to be honest, I only like Der Eisendrache and Gorod Krovi, even BOII was better than this shite (in fairness two of my favourite maps were on BOII, MoTD and Origins).

    Absolutely could not agree more. He tried to appease us long time players by grasping for loose ties to the real story, but as far as I'm concerned, Blundell's story is nothing more than shitty CoD zombies Star Trek fan fiction


  7. It has grown on me slightly.  But it is still in my bottom 1/3 of zombies maps overall.  It is just too far removed from what I fell in love with  in the zombies mode.  I know there is a lot of pressure from us toward the team these days to make things very cryptic and complicated, but at this point i have played enough games with randoms to realize that this map is just too convoluted for anyone other than the extreme die-hards.  It is a niche map, and I'll get around to mastering it, but it is too odd and complicated to really appeal to me at this point


  8. What I want and the inevitable don't intersect. Everyone here complains about how meticulous setting up origins was, while all the while singing its praises. Transit was and is my favorite map, not because it was easy but because of the opposite. There are three kinds of players on transit  presently: chicken bones, cheaters, and skilled independent players. I fully support playing with 2/3 of this group because they are in it for the challenge (chicken bones, whether they like it or not)

     

    Everybody couldn't get enough of 3arcs man gravy after Origins, "staffs uhhmfg its so much easier now!!"

     

    They saw this, and based on logic we can expect even more glaringly obvious boring meticulous eggs with a unique or worthwhile reward occuring on maybe 20% of them. You all have no one to blame but yourselves. You picked the map with the most opportunities to make personal progression easier and you labeled it the best blops2 map.

    whew, you are one special kind of masochist! ;)


  9. i'd say none, no one likes EE, it's one of the most hated things in zombie, i'd say treyarch is stupid if they put in EEs for zombies for BO3..... treyarch was also stupid for not having a bus in their other maps.... as they lacked the exitment teh bus created! :)

     

    wait a minute.......... i think you're up to something....  ;)


  10. Yes, i agree, a few "must have's" in my opinion

     

    1) Private match option.  Can't believe they missed this in BO2 with the 1-4 player leaderboards with no way to easily play a 2 or 3 person game

     

    2) No bank.  The bank in buried and die rise completely removed any early round strategy from the game. ruined those maps in my opinion

     

    3) Never again with the friendly AI.  Buried could have been a good map.  but it isn't because of a few mistakes.


  11. So I was at a Chick-fil-a the other day, and I had an interesting conversation with one of the workers there. I asked her what her favorite video game was, and she said, "Black Ops. I love killing some Zombies." I said, "Really? So, if I said, 'You remind me a lot of patient 13225, but you scream a lot less when I stick things in you,' you'd know what I'm referring to?" She said, "You have no idea how many times I have heard that." Pretty cool, I thought

     

    PUT A RING ON IT MAN!!! :P

     

     

    well, I went home on my lunch break and got the Ascendance DLC downloading for AW.  And went to Chick-fil-a for a delicious Chicken Sandwich   Strips and Nuggets


  12. Mr. Crowley - Ozzy Osbourne

    I used to work credit card customer service for Chase a few years back, and I love classic rock so always had my cube radio tuned to the local classic rock station.  my neighbor also was a big fan so we would often jam out together especially on slow days.  well one day, Mr. Crowley comes on with the bad ass organ romping through the speakers.. and I shit you not, my headset rang indicating i was getting a call, and the customer's name pops up on the screen and it was a Mr. and Mrs. Crowley.

     

    Needless to say we freaked out lol

     

     

     

    anyway, here's what i've been listening to:

     

     

     

     

    New Incubus  B)


  13. Im loving all these guys now :D So many great bands already said here, so I could make my own list also :)

     

    Medeia, Killswitch Engage, In Flames, Gojira, Mastodon, Nevermore, Megadeth, Sepultura, Soilwork, Children of Bodom, Slipknot, Carcass

    Only to name few :D
