The worst problem this game has by far in my opinion is the lag, or latency, whatever you wanna call it. but I can't count how many times ive come upon an enemy and shot half of my clip into his chest only to die and the killcam show i hadnt even started firing yet. This seems like its even gotten worse lately. its the most frustrating thing knowing that so many of your deaths are because of the poorly made game and not the fault of your own. i can fully accept dying when i know the other guy just outplayed me, but in this game more than any other ive played, i just feel like alot of my deaths are because of this lag (latency). i dont even feel good about having great games anymore because i just think to myself "those guys were probably just having a crappy connection" lol i have to stop playing the game at times because if i kept playing it i think i would end up snapping the disc in half lol. its disappointing because the game's content is really good and can be really fun, but the technical side of it, for the ps3 anyways, just cancels out any fun to be had most of the time.

THIS X 10000000.



50-75% of the time that is not the case though. It's usually due to some BS reason.

No, you don't.. I still find it hard to believe. I would never put you through the trouble of defending it.. and you have no reason to.



I assume this isn't your first COD? You've been playing since COD4 right?





First Call of Duty I played was on PS2, Finest Hour. Played every single release since then.



As for Stang. I'm fairly certain it WAS a Treyarch employee that let it slip. The reason we know that Treyarch didn't port the game is because of the credits not listing more than one PS3 engineer. Vahn has also only ever referred to "one" guy as well when it comes to contacting the PS3 "team".



And again, I literally do not have any issues with the game. Ever since 1.05 my game has ran like a dream.

I have to say that this game was sloppily put together. There are to many problems with the game that have destroyed any fun that can be had in it. Before you start forming an opinion on my lack of experience on black ops iv prestiged 5 times and close to 6th prestige. Here is a list of the problems i have found while playing:



1) Hit boxes- You can have the red dot on a guys chest, both you and he are not moving and it won't register a hit, or it will register a hit but 9 bullets later he still isn't dead. Or even worse you can be in chopper gunner hovering right over person at closest range you can get and it won't register hits on the person.



2) Host Migration- By far the most annoying problem with the game. Yes, I know this is an online game and you run into issues like this. My problem comes when the current host gets kicked to pick a new one, then as soon as game resumes it begins picking a new host. Iv had it repick a host 5 times in a row during one game. Another issue this game has is sometimes it won't even pick a new host when it is needed. Played an entire game were everyone had 1 bar of connection to the host.



3) Connectivity- Getting constantly kicked out of games. You can say its my connection but when i know multiple people around me all experience the same issue, it makes me believe its more of a problem on treyarch end. Why produce more games than your servers can hold? This ruins game play and causes people to lose interest in your franchise. Was experience it in the last CoD but got this game hoping it would be fixed but its worse. I can say that i am no longer going to be buying a game from this franchise because of this business strategy they have.



4) Groups- By far the most annoying problem with this game. My friends and I try to start groups up to play together. You send a game invite to them and you get the message game lobby no longer available. How can the game lobby be no longer avaliable when the person is waiting on the lobby page and hasn't begun a search for a game? Or you go to join a friends session and it says game is no longer active when he is saying the game is only half way through and there are 5 open slots.



These are the top 4 issues i have with this game. Sad that a fun franchise went down the toilet because of poor programming and development.





I have to argue that your view is flawed. Errors in programming is probably going to persist in every game made by a man. Errors are normal, yes its annoying to get kicked out, to have friends not able to join, not to kill someone when you believe they should be. But from your experience 6th prestige, you have dedicated more time than I'm sure your parents, girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, sister, grandmother would like. I don't know how old you are, but from the sound of it you never played NES or any of the third generation video games in the 8-bit era. If so, you probably wouldn't complain as much. But to enlighten how great this game actually is, play a round of the original donkey Kong, Mario brothers, and you tell me after that how "poorly made" this game is! I'm going to refrain from calling you names, because your opinion is valid, I do agree, but to whine about this game sounds like a spoiled cunt who never played an NES. Terrible post!

well if you think your game runs like a dream, i think someone may have performed inception on you and planted the idea in your head that the game runs so well lol. kidding, but if yours really does run that well then you're one lucky s o b. at times my game runs pretty well, but more often than not lately its run like complete crap. it was really stunning when i bought mw2 again and saw just how much better that game runs online than black ops. its just now that game is horribly balanced and is full of noob tubers and quickscopers. pick your poison i guess lol.

the fact that you have to compare black ops to nes games to make it seem great kind of tells you just how bad it is lol. i like the games content but it was badly put together from a technical standpoint

the game is still buggy. even still freezes up on me from time to time. hit detection is a damn joke. that is my biggest problem with this game. when i shoot somebody i want them to die lol i was sniping the other day and all day for plenty games, i clearly hit people 3-4 times with the L96A1 no silencer and no kill. i even hit a few in the head. still no kill.



i dont know about the rest of you, but this is THE LAST treyarch game ill ever buy. NOW im waiting to see what Respawn Entertainment comes out with. the head guys of IW running the show. now with a developer and environment artist from the God of War series, i bet their making a FPS like COD but with killer graphics like the god of war games.

Re: Annoying Problem

in reply to badgame
I play cod Black Ops on xbox 360 and find by far that the worst problem is being brought into a game on an already heavily losing side with no chance of winning and the match almost over and then receiving a loss for it! I have had this happen at times for up to six games in a row and on average about every other game. It's especially annoying if your trying improve your combat record. I can't help thinking the designers didn't think this aspect through thoroughly.....

yeah this is definitely the last treyarch game for me, maybe even the last cod game unless i hear many of the issues with black ops have been ironed out. and yeah im really looking forward to what the old infinity ward guys are up to a Respawn, and battlefield 3 is lookin mighty fine.

Re: poorly made game

in reply to badgame
As someone said before me and numerous before you, this is the most poorly made COD ever made. But not gameplay wise, in terms of gameplay it's the most balanced so far....maybe. But technically I think that my grandpa's pet dog could have made this game a bit better, for every console no less. Sure, the 360 guys experience less issues but they still b*tch and moan almost as bad as we do.



In all honesty no one can even say that Treyarch particularly favored the 360 in this game, it's made like garbage no matter which console you play on. It doesn't matter what anyone says, I doubt it is humanely possibly to make a game as buggy as this, excluding Fallout: New Vegas.
