All this is bs i'm sick of tired hearing the same thing releasing dlc will split the community etc etc. simple solution is to use ai bots there are already present in online if there are only 5 people with map then add the other sets to bots BE DONE ! END OF STORY.  gear of war does  this and its being done on next cod :ghost this can be done with black ops 2.

What about the weapon? Why can't they just  release weapon pack with zombie map as this you can play single mode or coop offline

  doesn't matter anymore its too late the next cod is coming maybe  wii u owner can get black ops 2 map on ghost with gun that were never release on for the wii u.

If I wanted to play against combat bots, I would just play combat training.
I do NOT want to play against Ai Bots,which is why I play multiplayer against real people to begin with.

you will still be playing with other people online it will be fill up with bots if there weren't enough to start playing with if someone else join that match the bot will be replace by a online player that simple. gear of war does it soon it will be cod ghost treyarch could have done it with wii u owner  the game have a online mode call boot  camp that puts newbie with bots and mix them up while they get xp this method can be use for the new maps.

Its all still irrelevant, yes it is possible to come for the WiiU, but clearly there is a discrepancy between the game makers and Nintendo, so you aint getting it. Jesus these threads are so boring...

Well, it's true. You could be sick and tired of hearing about how your body needs food and water to continue living, but the fact of the matter is it's true. If you don't eat or drink water then you'll die at some point, quite a bit sooner than if otherwise.

There are more variables to take account of rather than just the number of players the have the map packs. You also have to take into account the locations of the players. Pwnsweet has made light of this many times with being unable to get into a lobby. Getting map packs would mean the exact same thing. if you end up having to search on "Any", you will get lag. You will have to deal with a laggy lobby. You will also have to accept the possibility that nobody else would join your session and you would be stuck in a 6vs6 game with 11 (or 17) bots. You want to buy DLC just to play combat training? Ok, that's up to you; however, the original intend of multiplayer was to play with multiple players (AKA other people). For why people would be against it would be against the traditional methods for which multiplayer has enacted on over the years, and to further boil it down this game has 1/1,000 of the activity of the other platforms. Suggesting an idea that would likely not work is an idea not fit to be implemented. It could probably work on the other platforms, but on Wii U i would not hold such a suggestion as a fix for the lack of players issue.

Wasn't a boot camp like game mode also in Crysis 2? I remember hearing about how Crysis 2 made new players be in lobbies with other new players and once they reach a certain level they would be thrown out of the newbie lobbies.

Anyways, nice idea and attempt, but i just don't think it would work properly on Wii U at this time. It's a feesible idea, but its requirement is the same as any multiplayer game's requirement: There needs to be people who play the game to begin with.

----------------

Let's be realistic here: There is no reason to play Call of Duty on the Wii U. To some of us there is, but to the general gaming audience who does not use the Wii Remote or care for off-TV player it matters not. The Wii U version will forever be screwed if this isn't fixed, and to be quite clear i have no intention of even trying anymore to 'fix' the gamer's side of it. If you take out the Wii Remote, the Wii U version is identical to the other versions, but it lacks DLC and long term support; there is literally nothing different about it. Wii Remote use and off-TV play aren't things that interest everyone, it isn't for the masses. Therefore, if you take those two out of the equation, it's the same experience the gamers could get elsewhere. There would be no reason to buy it because it is an inferior experience with the lack of long term support and downloadable content. Since Black Ops 2, this is nolonger just map packs, but general DLC such as weapons and camos; not to mention Nuketown 2025, a free map available to EVERYONE (excluding Wii U users). You see the problems here? Even if these things are done, then it would still be a "Well, i already have friends on PS3 so i don't think i'll buy it for the Wii U". You have console preferences. The Wii U version has nothing to encourage people to buy it unlike the Wii versions did. Nintendo made some unique things through the Wii U. You can highlight the console's features as it's features pertaining directly to the console's capabilities. Make use of them, and properly capitalize on them. If you don't, then it's just a missed opportunity.

This is the last time i'll give a 'new' suggestion. And to make point, this is part of my reply isn't directed at anyone in particular besides Treyarch, if they are reading this.

I'm going out on a limb here but, you say that the Wii U version of COD nothing to offer, yet the wii version does. what exactly about the wii versions that would encourage people to buy it rather than the Wii U version?

For one, it's the Wii. To the unknowing customer it looks different than the other versions (less quality 'graphics'), and includes the Wii Remote as a primary controller with 3 titles not including support for any alternative control scheme. In other words, you would be forced to play differently. Then Black Ops Wii and MW3 Wii included support for CC and CCP, which isn't at all bad. It was still different because it offered two controllers to play with which PC was the only other platform that would allow such a capability.

The Wii U has proper DA controllers that are similar to the controllers on the other platforms; one of which is the primary controller for the console. Move and Kinect aren't used in Call of Duty on the other platforms. Furthermore, the visuals on the Wii U version are the same as the other platforms.

Use theatermode footage, don't include Wii U in the title and call it PS3 or 360 gameplay and i bet people won't be able to tell the difference. I'm being serious here.

The wii remote was a nice little addition i'll admit, and it does give gamers a new way to play the game, but honestly it's just a small gimmick that only a few players use. The same could be said if COD could use Kinect or PS-Move. and honestly, if the graphics on the wii u was less then the ps3 and 360, then it would be even less appealing to players. (of course i could be wrong).

I made a thread a while back asking what controllers people used, the wiimote, even on BO2 outnumbered everything else, its not a gimmick, its a damn good way of playing fps games, some say its more natural to point and shoot. So, to introduce a multi controller scheme was the death of the wiimote and the CoD game. It should have stayed unique to the console, both the Wii and the WiiU..
