    When I get the 'lobby not joinable' message, after an out-of-geo host gets blocked, my auto-ping does see the host. (it is working as intended for me).

    BO4 Changes...

    Just wondering what people might like to be changed in BO4. Don't bother putting the obvious, like frame rate when it gets busy on Contraband. My list: Minimap: People in your party aren't very easy to see, compared to the others in your team. Operator Mods: I've not seen anybody using operator mods at all, maybe they're too expensive, 3 slots seems excessive. Especially the VAPR which is bayonet, it's not reliable enough or fast enough. Contraband: Eurgh, that frame rate.

    Cheers mate, I'll give that a go tomorrow. It's strange how it does this, maybe the servers fell over at that location I was using. I played for ages with the geo covering EU without any problems, then suddenly it would only find dedis in the US (but not really in the US) for about an hour or so. Then after that it went back to EU servers for the rest of the evening. Did the same thing yesterday too.

    Is there a specific place to post misplaced dedis for BO4? These must be EU (ping 15ms) they're showing as NA, I can't get anything except these dedis at the moment so having to disable the Geo. d1ad6c374a70c2c7 d1ad703b4a70c2c7 d2ad37024a71c2c7

    Black Ops 4: General Gaming Discussion (not support)

    When you're on the game mode screen, where you can see Chaos Moshpit / Capture Moshpit, you're on 'Featured' game modes... Core and Hardcore are the next tabs along - can't quite remember, RB or RT to scroll I think.

    populating games with firter mode on

    I think there was an issue with servers when I was trying earlier. It was fine about 15 minutes later, locked myself onto the EU and 8ms from then on.

    populating games with firter mode on

    I've had to turn it off. I can't get a single game with the geo filter on Europe. Every game this evening seems to be on US servers, 135ms ping. Really feeling the delay.

    I love it. I will make it my wife. Much improved since the beta. But Blackout is laggy or has frame rate issues (or both), basically something isn't right with Blackout at the moment.
  9. If they wanted to do what "what the gamers want", then we'd have had had cross-console a long time ago. Sony and MS are both too greedy to allow cross-console play. There's nothing more too it than that.

    It just didn't really grab me like the other CoDs have. I found it all a bit too chaotic and random, without the normal flow of a CoD. And then there's the footsteps 🤣, the lack of them made me rage. For once, I didn't care about completing challenges, earning camos, or unlocking stuff. I didn't like the weapons or the class/perk system, I just didn't find it as much fun as I'd expected and got bored of it too quickly. I can't say I didn't enjoy playing it for a few games most days but I didn't want to play constantly like I would expect from a CoD. And I wouldn't play it on my own like I would most other games. BO4 though... I enjoyed all of the weapons I tried, I enjoyed the pace of the game, I like the specialist setup and the create-a-class system and I'm really looking forward to blistering my thumbs on it. Yeah, it's quite high/long, maybe they'll reduce the TTK slightly because at times it felt a bit too long. But I prefer a TKK that's longer than a TTK where I'm dead before I know I'm being shot at.

    Black Ops 4 Proves COD is DOOMED

    @BENORMOUS Red Dead 2 does look beautiful. Really looking forward to borrowing your horse, then driving it off a cliff and bringing it back to you as dog food.

    I thought the BO4 beta was fun, not impressed with the graphics or frame rate though. Graphics I can live with, frame rate needs sorting out quick.

    I'm hyped. I thought that beta was awesome, aside from the clunky slowdown framey issue. As long as they resolve that it'll be great. Should works wonders to take away the nasty taste that WW2 left.
  14. 1. Frame rate or whatever is going wrong on Xbox One. Looks sooooo much smoother in your video. 2. Snipers. Exactly like you said. Laying down lead on an enemy to then see the killcam of them ADS and, without a care in the world, one-shot you at relatively close range is infuriating. 3. Hipfire. Make it more viable in CQC. This could be a symptom of the frame rate issue but I found hipfire, without the steady aim laser, was way more useless than it would normally be. Easily the least effective hipfire of any CoD I remember. There's a certain range where hipfire should always be the best option, because you'll lose track of the enemy if you ADS, but in this you have to be virtually point blank. And on top of that there seems to be a lot of flinch and hampered movement when you get hit while not ADS, which is a bit weird. 4. I'd have preferred to have equipment (grenades or whatever) not take the place of the secondary specialist ability (it replaces something, maybe not that). I don't think I ever saw someone using equipment over whatever it replaces. I don't think it would be OP to have an extra slot for something like that. Pick 11 FTW! Especially with the extra health we have now. 5. I really don't like the way your screen get darker (suppression? flashes black) when you get hit. In a gunfight, the dark flashes, whilst going red from damage, with your own muzzle flare and the enemy's, with flinch, it's a bit overkill. Add the framey problem on top and at times I wasn't seeing much of anything. 6. One more. Specialist main ability is a bit slow to earn, in BO3 you could easily get it 4 or 5 times per game. Can't see that happening in this. I think it's going to be a great CoD though. I was shocked at how much I enjoyed the beta.

    R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

    No, I meant literally what I said. Sorry, I can't help with your peasant complex I'm afraid. You should check out some AAA game forums, you've clearly not been in many. They post nothing except patch notes, they don't respond to any posts and they ignore bug reports. They'll remove posts if they consider them 'non-constructive' regardless of written forum rules. Even tagging a mod's name in a polite and legitimate question will usually be considered spamming, it will almost never get a response other than "Don't tag the moderators". If you go so far as to call out and grief a mod and question their moderation, you'd be gone before your fingers leave the keyboard. They take no prisoners. It's different in here, the mods are much more tolerant than that. When we have an answer and we can help with something then we will happily provide it. There's a limit to how much you can take the piss though.
