I've been thinking about picking up COD4 again (as I traded it in long ago) but a guy I played Ghosts with stated that COD4 is often a bunch of people who have hacked the multiplayer vs. a bunch of people who appreciate the game despite its age. Is this inaccurate?

I've played two nights this past week and for an hour or so this afternoon and have not run into a single hacked lobby. Of course, I don't push my luck by bouncing from lobby to lobby either. Find a good one and stick with it. Also, I've only been playing TDM.

Interestingly enough, the first night I played it last week I was prompted to download an update. I couldn't remember the last time I logged in and don't really know what the update was supposed to do, but I guess it's possible (although unlikely) it could have been a patch.

You'd still occasionally run into hacked lobbies, ran into a infinite noobtub fest few weeks ago...I was like wow pretty cool, played a few mins just for the LOLz then dropped. Ppl tend to just stay in the same lobby for hours on end, for the exact reason. Its extremely hard to get on different game mode other than TDM so don't be too surprised if you have to wait a while for players to join. "lets do this"-Gaz

As someone who is actively playing a 3 year old cod what I'm about to say might seem contradictory-- it's really hard to go back.

I loved cod4 and adored mw2. Not only are these games hacked to pieces but they're not as good as you remember. Sure, the maps are still genius and the connection make you wonder what the **** happened the last few years but the sniping is absurd and the explosives-- oh gawd the explosives! Frag x3 and OMA/danger close are the two most ridiculous perks in call of duty. Never mind that everyone who plays cod4 now runs martyrdom and everyone who plays mw2 runs last stand-- which isn't even that good in mw2 and yet everyone is running now! ****ing annoying!

COD Ghosts declining sales
Activision is already developing a new game, possibly MW4
Not sure how reliable this website is but it sure is interesting........heres the link:

http://www.sidhtech.com/news/cod-ghosts-activision/10029155/


Activision had recently released Call of Duty: Ghosts across all the platforms recently. This even includes PS4 and Xbox One.

Despite that, Activision is already developing a new game. This is confirmed during a conference call just recently. Perhaps this an indication of Activision’s disappointment in the COD: Ghosts sales figure. Based on previous release pattern, we are predicting that the next release might be another Black Ops, Call of Duty: Black Ops 3, perhaps.

There are rumours that Activision is currently working with Sledgehammer Games in the development of the next CoD installment. Sledgehammer Games worked with Activision on the CoD Modern Warfare 3. So there is also a possibility that instead of Black Ops 3, Activision might be releasing Modern Warfare 4.

The low sales figure for the Call of Duty: Ghosts might be due to the fact that the game is low on the quality side. It is obvious that CoD: Ghosts didn’t opitimize the processing power of the next-gen consoles. Some gamers are claiming that Ghosts is a copy paste from an earlier game.

Hopefully, this time Activision would release something that would take advantage on the processing power of the PS4 and Xbox One.

With the announcement, fans are currently fixing their gaze on the upcoming release from Activision and are hoping that this next instalment of Call of Duty will not be another disappointment.

Other than the next instalment of the Call of Duty series, other games such as Hearthstone, Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls, a new World of Warcraft game, Destiny and Skylanders would be released in 2014.

it seems like a generic article. Activision was already working on the next COD game before Ghosts was released. That's how you stick to a 2 year timetable, alternating with Treyarch to get a yearly release.

That article tells us nothing we haven't known for months-- except maybe the sales figures but it doesn't actually tell us those because no one actually knows yet.

So I actually had some time to play Ghosts a fair bit between Xmas and New Years. I started playing hardcore and find it much, much more enjoyable than regular TDM. The players seem to communicate more and the maturity level seems a bit higher. I think the maps suck though compared to all earlier modern warfares. If they could bring COD4 maps into this, I think it would be a great game. I haven't noticed any lag and have yet to have a host migration or get kicked back to the lobby.

I've got two X1's and split my time playing between the two. I broke down and bought a digital license cause I got tired of running back to the other xbox and getting the disc. Digital is the way to go!

I've been having all kinds of connection issues for a few weeks now. For three days I kept getting "server down' message,and Tuesday had several games end with lost connection to host. Wondering if it's a local or regional issue. A friend at work who plays lives about 15 miles away has no issues.

I gotta say, when some quick scoping ass hat or a corner troll isn't ruining my killstreak I really enjoy this game. Sure it has issues-- in the last month the connection has actually gotten a whole hell of a lot worse, the spawns are ass and the 'no quick scoping' turned out to be a load of bull ****-- but I still like this game. I alternate between this and my other favorite cod, blops one, when I come up against too many try-hards. It's really the community that ruins the fun.

Still, I'm starting to 'get' this game: ARs rule, SMGs are garbage without rapid fire, marksman rifles are useless, LMGs are useful, people underestimate certain killstreaks, etc.

I'd avoid all the SMGs except the MTAR with rapid and grip. The Vepr with rapid and grip is sort of fun but the range penalty with that gun means you're probably better off just running a shotgun. I also don't run silencer anymore. Silencer does a number on these guns so of t didn't come with a silencer by default (ie honey badger) I don't add it.

The canister bomb with strong arm is becoming my favorite equipment/perk combo. Sucks you only get one and can't resupply but that kill is so damn satisfying I'm willing to accept the cost to run it-- you gotta have fun! smile.gif

In HC, the thermobaric tactical grenade thing kills fools, so it is like having two lethal without having to use a perk.

Playing a bit more on ghosts on the 360 as still virtually zero friends on the XB1 who play hardcore.

Slowed my game down to MW 3/blops1 speeds and find the game is not so bad.

Danger close is absolutely phenomenal. I average a minimum of five kills per game with tubes. Just put a grenade in the normal camping spots and get a kill. Hearing the name calling is totally gratifying.biggrin.gif

Still, for my connection, blops2 was still a better game.

Not surprised that activision is looking at trying something new. The infinity ward v2 has really not been as successful as most thought. They were given a pass on mw3 but ghosts has really been a disappointment.

I use the MTAR almost exclusively. The only time I roll with something else is when I'm bored and want to try a new style of play. I equip red dot and foregrip, though the rapid fire is pretty nice. The great thing about SMGs is you don't have to use the Stalker and Quickdraw perks, both of which are huge for running and gunning.

I was getting bored with the run and gun routine so I tried slowing down *ahem* camping *ahem* yesterday with the intention of getting the helo pilot killstreak. It was actually pretty fun...I didn't realize that killstreak kills count towards your killstreak. Of course I have no respect for myself now...I'll have to go back to my rush class soon biggrin.gif

I've been enjoying this game quite a bit. Of course it has its flaws like any other cod game but its still fun and plays far better than bf4. The only thing that gets on my nerves is the poor spawning and the camping, especially by clans. Really if the only way you can get a kill is if you and your buddies all sit in one room together then you shouldn't be playing. Other than that I find it very easy to go 2 or 3x kd ratio minimum with no camping.

I don't camp per se. I do however take and attempt to hold a portion of the map. Camping? maybe. But it took my kd from 1.13 to 1.63 and win loss above 2.0 lol. The crazy azz spawns and wtf moments have driven me to do this. Fix this, and i'll start running and shotgunning again!

Camping is so subjective, and not really well defined. For example I think it's totally normal to stop at choke points and clear them as you move around the map. Guess what happens for every choke point kill I get? "Camper!" "Nice camping." etc.

To me camping is when the game begins and a player rushes to some pre-defined corner or little room or overhang etc and lies down and just STAYS THERE. Anything beyond that is just personal playing style, how you play the game.

I've also taken to tactical camping but who gives a crap?!? It's a playstyle and it's one of those things that should be accepted anyways like running and gunning.

For your viewing plwasure, let me know if it works, just a few random kills.

I never understood the issue with Camping. In my view, it’s a valid play style. Besides in few months when most players have the maps memorized it becomes harder to camp, especially on TDM or Free For All. Also, good Clans tend to use a combination of runners and campers to flush and take down the competition.
