Seems like we are getting pretty close to the next DLC reveal. Rumor has it will be called Uprising.

They should!

$50 for the Season pass stuff and we are almost 6 months in with one map pack!

Yeah, this is pretty lame with the DLC release and we don't even get the DLC camo included with the season pass. Way shaft your loyal customers, Treytrey. frown.gif

Maybe they weren't kidding about the new cod being next gen only, and they're gonna stretch the DLC out like BF3 over a year and a half?

I bought BF3 used yesterday, snagged the online pass, and downloaded the updates. Will probably buy the premium thingy for the 5 map packs tonight.

BO2 is just getting old - waiting forever for a new map pack, not many people online at night. I actually don't care so much about the new stuff, but without people to play with, it's a bit blah.

Gonna try something a bit new.

Good luck with that. tongue.gif

played last night with Pill, Mrs and the normal Jram group. Jitu joined in on the opposite team. Had a lot of fun. Lag was hit and miss but since we had primarily a full group, it was livable.

Mystaphyer, I have played most every night. Of course it's HC but still, shoot me a message if you are wanting to play. I can always venture to the dark side and play core. I don't mind evil. biggrin.gif In small doses.

You will hate it. Your ADD self and wanting to run around all the time will NOT work in this game.

The only fun part of BF3 for ME (just me now) was being in the vehicles. Outside of that I hated the game.


And I too am bored BO2. I am only playing sporadically as I am close to max prestige. Of course I am sure these SOBs will add more prestiges to the game before I can get there (I'm about 1/2 way through #10).

No one seems to play much anymore and even when you do the lag and connection issues are so bad its kind of like why bother. Absolutely terrible. Unfortunately I feel they have abandoned this game already. The lag is bad, connections are worse, and spawns in this game are the worst I have ever seen.

I did play with Meow last night for a bit and it wasn't as horrible as it has been recently. Guessing I just got lucky is all.
post #4300 of 4670
Yeah I'm completely bored with it too, haven't touched it in like a month. I played the hell out of it nov-jan, and I'll pick it back up for a week when them map packs come out. I just wish they were on to #4 already. They seem to want to stretch it out to a full year, I just want a good season of it to end in may, let the series breathe for a few months, and then get excited for it all over again in November.

Yeah and I wanted to stay on the oppositge team so I can snipe you guys but somebody insisted on kicking me out. How rude mad.gif




but I ain't mad at ya

I too am bored with it. Tomb Raider was a nice change of pace but I finished it in a couple weeks and the MP is meh. I loved the game and may want to play through the campaign again but am also debating trading it in towards Bishock as that seems to got good reviews. I played the first Bioshock and thought it was mediocre but have not played any of the sequels.

My fallback is to put my wizard hat on and continue playing skyrim

I jumped into a game with you Zombie the other day. Was even on the same team as you. You dropped at some point. We did end up winning that game.

It's not like this is any different than past games. You can't really count MW3 since they did the bits and pices every month DLC


According to wikipedia, these were the release dates of DLC for Black Ops 1.

Treyarch released the "First Strike" Map Pack on February 1, 2011 for the Xbox 360

A second map pack called "Escalation" was announced on April 11 and released on May 3, 2011 for the Xbox 360.

A third map pack called "Annihilation" was released for the Xbox 360 on June 28, 2011.

The fourth map pack, "Rezurrection" was released on August 23, 2011 for the Xbox 360.

True, but I still equally lost interest in it past the first pack. At least the last MP pack was in June, which is more reasonable than the September that MW3 was and blops 2 is destined to be.
post #4307 of 4670
My interest in this game has only fallen because most of the time I can't play a game! Its not the maps, or the lack of new ones its simply that the lag and connections are so horrid it is a waste of time.

I don't normally fuss that much about lag/connections etc but IMHO this is the worst I have ever seen in any online game I have ever played. Treyarch was good about patching BLOPS and getting relatively decent but this has actually gotten worse since release, not better.

Yeah I saw you in there. I've been home sick with my daughter this week so have been playing a bit but not using a mic. I had to leave the match because she needed me... not that I need a good reason to quit a match wink.giftongue.gif

Agreed 100% The only thing I can figure is that Activision has established some sort of SOP for lagcomp because I've never even heard Treyarch mention it. Either they are arrogant @ssholes that could care less about balanced gameplay or they don't have a say in the matter. Either way it really sucks and takes a lot away from an otherwise decent game. As I said before, I'll take the minimal lag and safe spawning of MW2 over this any day... even blops1 (post hit detection fixes) was much better.
post #4309 of 4670
Yeah I stopped playing about a month ago, maybe more, and don't miss it. I'll come back at the next map pack but I just got bored. Played some Oblivion and now I'm going through the whole God of War series since I never played it when it came out. Hopefully the next maps are good or this might be permanently shelved for me.

I'm not there yet but I can't even count how many times I felt like doing this. Though I'm not sure what his plan was afterwards... dumbass. Hey Treyarch, I will quit a damn match any effing time I feel like it so effoff with your probationcrap! Maybe if you'd fix this POS lag and spawn there wouldn't be record numbers quitting matches.

This is one of the highlights from the other night when I was going up against the AVS crew. I am really enjoying sniping and only because it's ridiculously easy. I have done jump shots, climbing out of windows shots, etc. etc. This clip I get 2-in-1 biggrin.gif
post #4313 of 4670
Done with this game. Connections suck, balance sucks, game is hacked to pieces. I never thought I'd say this but-- this game is actually worse than mw3.

So I'm done. I'm going back to blops 1 where the only balance issues are famas, galil and that stupid butt shot perk. The connections are similarly terrible in that game but at least the one shot weapons (snipers and shotguns) are difficult to use and not über weapons like this PoS. Also-- no ****ing hacks!!!

**** you activision and **** you 3arc for ruining a perfectly good series.

lolz. Are you sure you weren't playing CoD 4? What hacks were you running into? I have yet to see one.

Lots of people bitching about the game recently but I really haven't had the connection problems to any further extent than I ever did.

Spawn hacks.
Lag switching.
Pick 17 system.
Unlocked kill streaks.
Death machine and war machine as secondaries.

Never mind this game has the most egregious lag I've ever seen and the snipers make the mw2/3 snipers look weak. Game is **** and I don't like it.

Good games last night fellas and whatever little time I had sniping you all, it was so worth it. Out of all of you, BB got the wrong end of the barrel most of the time. Sorry BB <3!!!
post #4317 of 4670
It was fun playing last night. Just gotta mix it up to keep it fresh. The pistols/shotties/knife thing does a good job of helping with that.

For me, it's sometimes more fun being on the opposing team, but still in party chat.
post #4318 of 4670
Heard peeps are switching back to older versions of COD. I'm down to play BLOPS1, MW3 or COD4 any night.

Just shoot me an invite, I'll jump on. Even if I'm offline. (it sends a message to my phone)
post #4319 of 4670
Man this weekend was brutal. I can’t believe that I said it but this has to be the worst game in the series but it’s the one I want to like the most.

Boosting is out of control. Had some guys on the kill cam getting the final kill boosting. We all tried to report them but they left the lobby too fast for me to do it. Even if we report someone I doubt anything ever happens I have never heard of anyone getting banned after getting reported.

Of course spawns are just broken. Combined with lag I was running around the enemy spawn and watched a guy spawn in front of me but didn’t even have time to react before I was dead. In what looked to me like before my body drops I see two other enemies spawn right where I was. I know that I was dead before they spawned but it just shows how bad the lag for me is.

Hand guns are just crazy. Last night in the final kill cam a guy with a hand gun picked off a sniper across the map. It even looked like the sniper should have had the drop on the guy with the pistol cause he was camped in the window and had just picked off another guy right before the guy with the pistol popped out and fired 3 shots.

The gimmicks in this game are making it no longer about combat but about diamonds, call tags, obscene pictures next to your name, pink rocket launchers… It’s getting hard to take the game serious anymore.

Just my rant for the day due to a tough weekend playing.

This.

My girl will be out of town from Tue-Thur, so, I will be getting on much earlier in the evening. Looking forward to more games like the last night.
