>>42133218>I wonder if it will go on sale. I'd probably play it a bunch, but dropping $60 for something I might play a bunch, but might also get over it quickly, is too much of a gamble haha.
Yeah that's fair, unfortunately CoD games rarely go on sale and if they do its only like 20% off or something.
>Why do they always bring back awful maps. Suck a confusing practice. Played a ton on Backlot over the weekend though. Of all the MW2 maps why Rust though? Remember Favela being my fave, but Highrise, Rundown, and Quarry were up there too.
I love Shipment, and Rust is pretty fun, but I think they brought them back because they're basically gimmick maps that are great for 1v1s or grinding out challenges that would normally take several hours, and getting massively high numbers of kills over and over, and easy streaks etc. A break from the camping and stuff. Personally I play the hell out of Shipment any time its available. Its such a rush. Rust is kind of a toss-up, sometimes its great but it is possible to get spawn-trapped pretty badly.
Backlot is pretty great, Vacant is also great, Crash is okay but yeah there are much better maps they can bring back.
I want more MW3 maps tbh. MW3 is my favorite CoD game. it is sooo underrated and underappreciated. It was peak CoD and the one I put the most time into.
>I didn't get control over which game modes to play, but regular TDM and Kill Confirmed were cool enough. Though it also kept making me play Drop Zone games which I feel like can only exist as a joke playlist. Why it was included in the free weekend I have no idea.
Yeah Drop Zone is a meme playlist, they have most of your standard CoD modes (Domination, Hardpoint, Headquarters, SnD etc.) and also some that aren't new but weren't in all the games like Grind which is pretty cool.
Realism mode is pretty cool too, they usually do it on night maps so everyone has nightvision goggles and a laser attachment and basically you have no HUD + headshots are always a OHK no matter what gun you're using.
I don't personally enjoy Ground War but some people love it. I just hate running across the map for like two minutes and then getting sniped by someone on a hill or something, its annoying.
>Yeah I dislike Battle Passes. They're annoying, even more so because they constantly tempt you like "look what you could be unlocking if you only you give us your credit card details~" I never hard much issue with Loot Boxes, but my only experience with those really was Overwatch which actually did em well. Only cosmetics and can unlcok everything in game easily anyway.
I don't necessarily like the battle pass but in the last five CoD games, loot crates were basically P2W, they would lock ridiculously good weapons behind them with a less-than-1% chance of getting them so obviously the whales who dropped a ton of money on crates would get them faster and have a huge advantage. CoDWW2's system actually wasn't that bad because they gave a you a lot of relatively easy challenges you could complete daily to get free crates, so it didn't feel as unfair, but in general I'm principally against loot crates so I see the battle pass as an improvement, because it gives you content based on how much time you put into the game, rather than forcing you to pay or hope for an extremely low RNG chance. But ultimately, if you're not gonna play a lot
then the battle pass isn't really worth it, especially since the new weapons are always free.
>I have not played a single CoD game since MW3 haha, and even then just like three matches or so. Really the last CoD I played in any significant amount was MW2 which I had a lot of fun with even if it marked the start of kill streaks being overpowered and unfun, and also had the dumb Danger Close stuff.
>It felt pretty close to MW2 though which was nice.
MW19 is probably the closest CoD has been to MW2/3 since Ghosts, for better or worse. I see a lot of people who hadn't played in years saying they like it a lot. I personally think CoDWW2 was the best CoD of this generation, but I know that's a pretty unpopular opinion. If CoD 2020 (or 2021) isn't good I'll probably end up back on CoDWW2. The good thing about CoD is that on console the player population stays alive for a good few years. Not quite the same on PC though, although MW19 is the first CoD ever to have crossplay.
