not to turn this into a war, but you said online experience was best with CoD.. that is not even close, matchmaking is better with halo, no crazy host migration, no crazy spawn killing, much smoother online experience as a whole (no errors that say "game is no longer available" and the whole party has to disband just to have someone join), lag is better, more game options, Forge... not quite sure what COD does better?? with all that being said i have put about 4 times more time into COD than Halo 4 (can't get into the whole jumping around, 30 shots to kill, etc..), but as far as an online experience (not saying it is "more fun" or anything like that) Halo is by far the king in that area..

Been playing BLOPS2 domination and I've been doing tons better at the game. Which is pretty sad considering not many others want to play that mode. I"ve had no real issues with lag and seem to consistently stay in the top 5 of the entire lobby. KD ratio stays around 2.0 in domination too. All of this means, if I'm going to have fun with this game.. I'm going to have go back to my DOM roots.

Looks like I'll be playing HC KC/TDM with the usual crew here & there.. and Core Domination with others.
post #2583 of 4670
anyone know the reason that there isn't HC domination??
post #2584 of 4670
I know they keep the HC playlists to a minimum because less people play them, so they can't split the playerbase too many ways. I'm surprised they don't just have a mosh pit playlist with everything though.

No, I said I don't consider it in the same league as CoD. To me, the games are so different they aren't really comparable. I'm not putting the game down, just that they are so different, and strategically so foreign to each other, it is hard to compare them. To me, the CoD series is the multiplayer king for sheer fun of the game, and from a competitiveness standpoint, I feel much more into the matches in CoD, than in the Halo titles.

well this will be my last post on this so this doesn't turn into a war, but what you are saying is (your opinion) CoD is "more fun", not arguing that at all.. but to say it provides a better online experience just isn't true, if you asked people who played both games questions like
1. which game has less lag?
2. which game has more online issues?
3. which game has better matchmaking?
4. which game kicks you out of matches more?
5. which game is easier to join your friends without encountering issues?
6. which game has more online options (such as forge, etc..)?
7. etc..

i could go on and on, but you get the point.. saying one game is "more fun" or you enjoy playing more, is not the same as providing the "best" online experience...

New DLC rumor:

Name: Revolution Map Pack

Also, a gun DLC

Map Names:
Hydro (area around a Dam)
Grind (skateboard park)

Zombie map: name looks like Rise.

The gun is called the Peacekeeper SMG. Not known if it can be used in MP or only for Zombies.



From Joystiq:

I am at level 40 something now so I have had a chance to get a good feel for the game. I like this game way way way better than BO1. It's nothing like it actually.

The graphics are much better (not cartoon looking), the soundtrack is superb and I have to say they did an awesome job with that.

Raid is one of my favorite maps.

I have seen and experienced lag or hits not getting registered but no where near as bad as it was fro BO1 and MW3. Not only that, i think I even enjoy this better than MW3.

The class setup is still experimental for me and I am trying to configure what works best for my gaming style but I have narrowed down some that I like that are unlocked at my level.

I haven't counted all the maps that are available for multiplayer but it seems like I am always playing 5 maybe 6 different maps in rotation.

I wish there was an option to add a third perk for each tier, that would be cool.

Now, the one thing that I have had frustration with is knifing and I don't know what it is but I would be going through the character model and still can't get a hit register. There was one game in Jungle where I had the final kill and it took me three times to finish the enemy with my knife. It was really silly but I guess I will have to get used to that or time it. Who knows.

To me though, the "fun factor" is a large part of the overall experience, which is why I said what I did. I certainly will grant you Halo has less lag and a prettier front end, but things like Forge don't really do much for me (it may be important to you though) and I prefer a modern military environment, not a space marine kind of environment. If I am stranded on a desert island with a blazing fast Internet connection and a 360 with XBOX Live, I want Halo games for single player and CoD for competitive multiplayer.

From what I am hearing, the gun will be able to be used in online multiplayer, not Zombies. I don't think this is 100% confirmed, but it seems to be the consensus. I applaud Treyarch for FINALLY introducing new weapons! This is something I have asked for many times and I think it is a great and novel idea!

Glad you are having fun. GiantM0nkeyMan is my Gamertag (the other one is seldom used now), so PLEASE add me and lets play some time. I too think the lag is abating a bit, it has been much better in the last week than in the previous week or two. Map rotation can be a bit wonky sometimes, but you'll play them all eventually. Knifing is inconsistent, you are right there. I know I have knifed through people before and had it not register, so I know what you're describing.

I only play objective based game modes and decided to try out the EMP grenade today. That thing is awesome. Now I have to decide if I prefer it or the Black Hat.

Let's do it! Are you going to be on tonight? I am going to but not sure what time.
post #2594 of 4670
Won't be on tonight, but I am taking a 1/2 day off tomorrow and will be on all afternoon and probably some in the evening as well. Send me a friend request and we can always PM each other on here to coordinate play times.

Looking forward to it!

Looking for some others to play with. Throw me an invite if I'm online and I'll do the same.

From the menu where you select multiplayer and campaign, I set multiplayer to default but I don't think it does anything. Everytime I start the game, I always go through the process of skipping the intro and the menu to start up a game. Is there a quicker way?
post #2598 of 4670
Works for me, it goes straight to MP when I boot.

YES. It does this to me too on a regular basis. I can't seem to figure out when it boots to multiplayer and when it decides not to.

I know if you're not logged into Live when you start the game it will make you go through the opening cinematic and menu. Maybe that's happening to you guys?

**NEWS FLASH**

Daekwan admitted yesterday that he ENJOYS PLAYING BLOPS2 now.

I think the whole connectivity thing w/ this game is just a little weird for a small percentage of the time. I randomly get the "download season pass" ad for some reason, and my NAT constantly fluctuates between open/moderate w/o any changes to my configuration(1st time w/ any COD, always been in the DMZ, etc.)???
post #2605 of 4670
Quick question for the Black Ops experts....


The only way to get Nuketown for zombies is via the Season Pass ? Is there any other way to get it ? If I do actually end up getting a season pass, how many maps would I get for Zombie mode ?

You would get the Nuketown Zombies map with the Season Pass. The first map pack DLC will be out 1/29. There will be 1 zombie map in that map pack. They will probably do 1 zombie map with each map pack DLC so I would think 4 minimum.

I've had moments like that as well, playing Hardcore has helped.

Hey Daekwan. All I play is Core Dom so hit me up when I'm on. This is the way Dom should have been in the other games. The fight for the B flag is CRAZY. I like that you get 100 per kill vs the 50 in the other games. And the 200 for a cap plus 200 per cature kille is Niiiiiice.

Good news! I'm back to work now so you will be blessed with my renewed participation in this thread.

My thought of the day (I only have one per day) - Demolition is awesome.
post #2610 of 4670
The other night I was playing on Hijacked and got spawned killed about 8 times in a row........wait that wasn't me that was the other guy that I was showing what a textbook spawn trap is. We were playing demolition but I have never been spawn trapped ever in that mode. Why you ask? Two words: TACTICAL INSERTION
