    CoD. Cheese. Cats. Not fish.
  1. 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.

    Black Ops 4: General Discussion

    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.

    Black Ops 4: General Discussion

    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.
  6. 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.

    I removed a few posts that I thought were posted purely to antagonise. If there were responses to those posts then they had to be removed because they no longer made sense or they quoted the original post that was removed. Users get a note when their account is suspended. A note for an edited post is at the discretion of the the moderator (as above). Notes are not given for removed content unless a warning is given. Don't question every piece of moderation that happens, it's a waste of time and will be considered spam.

    Considering Reinstalling Windows 10 due to BSODs

    I also have a Samsung SSD. We'd better change our name to the 'Samsung SSD ol' boys club!'

    No, I don't remember what it said. If it wasn't inflammatory in itself, then it probably related to one of the ones I removed and then didn't make sense after I'd removed the other.

    They were posted in here to stir the pot, it doesn't need stirring. They didn't add anything to the discussion so I removed them.

    It's been common knowledge for years that the Netduma can't control the opposition's internet and it's common sense. Lag compensation is necessary, without it you'd be shooting at thin air. I've never heard anything like this before, graphical assets load from your Xbox not from the server. You don't have to download third party software at all. We suggest ping plotter, to people that are having problems, as a way to perform a test on their line so that they can provide us with a visual representation of the state of their network connection. We do this so that we can offer advice to help solve any problems that people are having that is outside of the control of the Netduma. Good look getting that level of support from anyone else. If you have an issue then create a support thread, you're off-topic, any further off-topic posts will be removed from this thread.

    I didn't say that I don't communicate my thoughts and opinions (or those of others) directly to Netduma.

    Moderators are just long time users, with knowledge of the product. They're here to make sure that posts and people that break forum rules are removed. I'm sure Netduma are aware of the situation without the moderators staging some kind of forum mutiny. You can appreciate that I don't feel like laying my neck on the block for people that send death threats about my family and actively try to get me removed as a moderator. No need to reply, this is a statement not the start of a discussion.
