Complain, Complain, Complain.

Is that all that everyone does on here? Seriously...95% of the posts on the forums are about people complaining about one thing or another. Whether it be lag, "OP guns", hacking, or quickscoping. I understand this post kind of defeats the purpose, because I'm complaining about other people complaining but jesus, come on. I use to atleast enjoy playing MP online and have some fun, but then when I started hanging around the forums that all changed. Yes, theres lag, yes theres hackers and quickscopers and not every damn gun is perfect. You know what? Practice more, learn to beat the campers, quickscopers and shotgunner. Or atleast make a new spot in the forums called "Whine 24/7 and blame my crap playing on other people".

 

It's annoying as hell, and I know there are quite a few people around here getting tired of it. Just shut up and play, if you don't like it QUIT. Don't come on here complaining about absolutely everything and not say one thing good about ANYTHING. Just quit...stop playing. Better yet, stop posting your negative whiney crap all over these forums.

 

It would be awesome if this is the last "complaining" post on these forums, but we all know that it won't be.

 

 

May as well post this, I already typed the damn thing.

    Might as well answer this since I clicked reply. Because I whole heartedly agree too many people blame others for their faults and insecurities.

     

    Even some of the mods are saying they are getting tired of seeing the same old posts about the same old things.

     

    Its ten months into the game and you may have noticed the "problems" are not fixed and nor will they be.

     

    Next game there is going to be the same issues. Lag, single shot deaths, hitmarkers, weird glitches, hacks, button tags, etc.

     

    I am expecting the same thing, and I think others should too. So when they buy it they wont be shocked that BO2 will have the same thing.

     

    But all they will do is expect the game to be perfect and complain they shelled out 60 bucks in advance to "get the NukTown 2025 map that will suck".

     

    Some of these people need to go through some REAL problems with this world and then learn something like the connection on a video game is nothing compared to what really lies out there.

     

    But its going to be the same exact thing. People are going to spend 60 bucks on a game that they never investigated and spent 12 hours in line waiting to pick it up and find out it wasnt what they hoped it would be. and since they never did investigate the game they will blame the developers for forcing them to wait in line for the game.

     

    Even the ones who buy it a month later hoping the bugs would be worked out are still going to complain even though they assumed the bugs were worked out instead of checking it out for themselves.

     

    And since the next game will sell at least 25 percent higher than this one everyone who complains will have say MORE people complaining in the next one than before. Not even realizing the percentage of complaints will be the same as this one.

     

    But go ahead people keep thinking TreyArch will fly in like Superman to save the day.

     

    I can live with software faults, and I still have two copies pre-ordered for me and my wife. If it sucks royally I am going to blame MYSELF for buying it and put the blame where it should be.

     

    I honor you for admitting you know that you are posting nother complaint of complaints, but I know some people will still ridicule you for it. But if we are going to have the same repeat of complaint posts over and over then by rights we should be allowed to repeat these complaints of complaints posts

     

    We will stop if THEY will stop.

      I'm really surprised at this post. I thought some little smart ass would get to me first before a reasonable person. I'm glad someone out there understands. I feel the same way with people thinking BO2 is going to be the most amazing thing ever. It's going to be hilarious when they are all complaining about that game. "OMG I GOT KILLED BC OF LAGZ." Nope, you got killed because you're a moron for thinking that everything will get fixed. There will never be a game that is 100% perfect out there. Yes CoD has its faults, but seriously? I love playing this game. Coming back to my dorm to blast people faces off is one of the best feelings in the world. I will start with a 7.0 KD and play for a few hours and then sink down to a 0.00000000000 KD. That's the game. That's just how it goes. I never rage quit because of "lag" or getting quickscoped, because it's MY fault if I die from it. Theres always a counter act to everything, just learn how to adapt and defeat it.

       

      Ahhhhh oh well. I'm done with the forums, too much negative feedback on everything. I appreciate the understanding on where I'm coming from.

       

      See ya out on the battlefield.

    Why don't you practive more at not letting the forums bother you.

     

    Learn which sub-forums to stick to so you don't get upset.

     

    Failing that, take your own advice and quit the forums.

    • Re: Complain, Complain, Complain.

      Why don't you learn to type correctly before you start trying to be a tough little dweeb over the web.

       

      And second, go to other sub-forums? Sorry, but it's everywhere.

       

      Don't worry, I'm already going to take my advice and I won't be returning to this whine fest anymore. I rather play with the people on my friends list. People who actually play to have fun, and don't blame others for their faults.

        First you complain about complainers then you complain about someones typing.. Dude you just need to relax.. You know this game is very f'd up so people will complain especially me.. It gets me mad alot, but its a game and i love to play it.. It keeps me and millions more entertained.. But remember i paid 60 bucks for this game just like most of the other people on this forum so i think we're entitled to vent our frustration alittle ok..

      Seriously typing. You think "jesus" is typed with a capital J? What about "atleast"? Two words or one?

       

      The point of my post is to indicate to you how annoying it is, using the points you raised, to be told what-to-do by a complete stranger.

       

      I think I got the point across.

    Complaining about complainers is no better than someone complaining about a specific area of the game.

     

    Just sayin'

    I want all guns to take 8 bullets to kill people, except for snipers, they take two unless its a headshot and then it is one.   SMGs take 12 bullets out of range and Rifles take 10 while LMGs are still 8.  Shot guns are 2-4 hit kills.  And melees are 2-3 hits depending on if they are facing you or away from you.

     

    Skill...what Call of Duty lacks.

  • Re: Complain, Complain, Complain.

    People complain because the game is obviously flawed. Go to the "Technical Support" part of the forum, and it's complaint after complaint with so many unaswered questions. The obvious question to your original post is why haven't any of these issues been addressed? Instead of releasing a patch that will fix the game music volume or a patch that will prevent trolls from knifing your equipment, vest, etc. they release tweaks to make Sitrep Pro overpowered.. it's like they're purposely trying to screw with us or something.. BOII will probably be the last Call of Duty that most people buy and it's mostly because Treyarch was the developer behind it.

    Im not going to use some silly annalogy but ill say this. Any other product we as consumers buy we expect it to work properly, and if said product does not we expect compenstion. Weather its a refund or exchange, in the case of video games or any type of media theres laws that prevent us from getting compensation. So we are stuck with it we all have bought cds that suck dvds that suck and were stuck. Not get get all "that guy" on you but we spend our hard earned money that for some at this point is really hard to come by on a product we expect to work. We have every right to be pissed when it dont work

      First you didnt BUY it. You purchased a license to borrow the software under THEIR Terms.

       

      This isnt like buying a car, it is like renting a car.

       

      You agreed when you opened the package and put it in your Xbox that this game is not guaranteed to be bug free.

       

      You agreed that you will borrow the software AS IS, bugs glitches and all.

       

      It even said so on Xbox Live as well as one the back of the box before you opened it.

       

      The laws are not what is preventing you from getting a perfectly working product, what is preventing you is the agreement that you made. Add to that the fact that the internet is a constantly flawed thing. Even IF their were laws to protect you it still would not sand up in court due to the unpredictablility of the internet.

       

      If you KNEW beforehand that there are laws that go against you then why did you still buy it ?

       

      And why do you expect a working product when you agreed the product is faulty when you bought it ?

    Your making the mistake of assuming this is a social forum, it is not - it's a corporate forum. In other words customers who have grievances with  products produced by the corporate body financing this place (ie Activision) will obviously end up coming here, the source, and spill their complaints and anger. If you go to various corporate forums the same shizzle goes on, take for example HDTV manufacturer forums.

     

    There are many "community orientated" COD forums on the net which of course have a different more pleasant atmosphere. If you want to see less whinging they are the place to be. Complaining about an official corporate forum having too many posts with complaints is like complaining about porn forums having too many posts of nude images. Hopefully this makes it clearer as to why endless complaint/whining posts is the norm here.

     

     

     

    TL;DR - I like porn forums.
