Gottta read this crap, programer reveals care package deception

World War II General Discussion

Your game and greedy content hostage scheme is the most shameful, illegal, and franchize killing crap I have ever seen in my life. In order to get content I paid for( season pass and the game itself) I have to pay you more and more and more. You say the content is receivable if you just grind out the game right? Look at my profile look at how hard I have been grinding to get crap that, WAS AVAILABLE THE GAME CAME OUT! ....LOOK AT MY COD RECORD, THE LEADERBOARD, LOOK AT ONE OF THE FEW PEOPLE(referring to 1200 overall rank and earning tiger chrome)WHO HAS TIGER CHROME, TONS OF GAMEPLAY ON ZOMBIES AND MULTIPLAYER, RETAINING A HUGE FOLLOWING AND AS A RESPECTABLE GAMER IN MY GAMING COMMUNITY AND TELL ME THIS IS FAIR OR LEGAL!

     Today... After grinding nonstop for 3 days to get one LAST new gun! JUST ONE!!! I have officially given into this bull scheme and bought 20$ worth of care package. After only managing to open one, the fame glitches in a way I have not yet seen(and we have seen SO MANY ALREADY)it appears to me they all disappear without a trace. I get online to Activision support and the guy says I got that apparently came out of those care packages that glitched out(as if to say I opened one and it caused them all to open at once.... )and hoping for at least the AC from any duplicates, I pleaded with him to investigate. During our conversation I had reminded him of other issues like when Activision said no more pistol grips, I still get them. I prompted the argument that say content is available, it can be obtained from grinding contracts and other time consuming methods, but has shown of a a lot of instances not to be true. Or say I have all the required items from winter, resistance, and undead events that have items locked still. It appears I probably will never get the guns they unlock. I have defended cod long enough, the last straw was today when the Activision online support chat session was closed by the agent abruptly while I was replying to the fact that there is seemingly no ”randomness” with item received or not. A statement I made after he disclosed to me that he is able, within minutes of the glitch happening and me contacting support, to tell me with a high amount of detail, every single item I got, don't got, and what I had to begin with.

    I then replied(because I make a living in writing software that would be able to resemble Activision's ”random item roulette”) ”If you can consistently track every single drop and record what a player has at any given time, you then can therefore, with incredible precision, have hidden operations that stop a player from receiving items unless they have(unknowingly of course) completed various requirements. For example purchasing of extra content or completing long-term time constraint based tasks in order to try and influence a player to just spend money for a better result.”   

    Even more dubious and frustrating is there attempt to appear to be trying to help us receive he things we want in game. Remember this statement, ”Hey COD WW2 fans, as of today we have removed pistol grips and in-game experience bonus items from out care packages”. 

    I get still to this day... BONUS BS AND EVEN STILL... KID YOU NOT... ” PISTOL GRIPS! THEN YOU ADD ALL THIS OTHER BULL LIKE CHARMS, FACE CAMO, UNIFORMS, TAUNTS, HELMETS, EMBLEMS, CALLINGCARDS, AND MORE AND MORE USELESS REPETITIVE SO YOU CAN MAKE THE PROBABILITY OF GETTING A GUN, NOT VARIANT, IM SAYING GUNS NOT YET UNLOCKED, EVEN MORE, DILUTED AND UNDER A CONTROL SCHEME OF YOUR MAKING

    THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT THE CONTENT IT LEGALLY MINE! When I paid FOR THIS GAME AND THE SEASON PASS, IT WAS A PURCHASING CONTRACT THAT STATED THAT ALL OF THE CONTENT OF THIS GAME REGARDING HOW IT IS NOW AND HOW IT IS AFTER THE ADDITION OF DLC’S IS MINE. ACTIVISION IS IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW, AND THE STATUTE THAT THAY AGREED ONLY TO ALLOW FOR PURCHASING POWER FOR EXTRA CONTENT BE FOR COSMETICS ONLY! THE SECOND YOU MADE NEW GUNS ONLY AVAILABLE THRU SHOTTY AND MANIPULATED MEANS YOU VIOLATED MY PROPERTY RIGHTS AND THAT VERY SAME CONTRACT YOU SOLD ME. 

     THATS LIKE BUYING A CAR AT THE DEALERSHIP, THEN WHEN YOU GO TO DRIVE IT, YOU NOTICE THERE IS A CARDBOARD STEERING WHEEL, AND YOU ASK WHERE IS THE WHEEL. AND THEY SAY ”OOOOO UM WELL IF YOU CAN MANAGE TO DRIVE THE CAR WITHOUT CRASHING WITH THAT FLIMSY CARDBOARD STEERING WHEEL FOR 50,000 MILES, THEN YOU WILL “UNLOCK” THE REAL ONE...” ”BUT IF YOU WANT, WE HAVE A DAILY DRAWING LOTTERY THAT MIGHT GIVE IT TOO YOU RUGHT NOW... ITS ONLY 500$ PER, ENTRY, PER DRAWING OUT OF A POOL OF 10000000 OTHER DRIVERS.”   

     STARTING AS OF TODAY, I WILL BEGIN A BRUTAL CAMPAIGN TO BOYCOTT THE NEXT COD, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER OR NOT I BELIEVED THAT TREYARCH WOULD REKINDLE THE FAITH AND LOVE OF THE GAME, NOT TO THE CROOKED COMPANIES, BUT INSTEAD, TO THE FANS, VETERANS, LOVERS, AND OVERALL GAMING COMMUNITY  THAT REALLY SHOULD BE PRAISED, AWARDED, “COMMENDED” FOR THERE LOYALTY, AND THEIR CONSISTENT SUPPORT FOR THIS FRANCHIZE. BUT INSTEAD OF THAT THEY ARE ROBBED, LIED TO, DISAPPOINTED REGULARLY, AND TAKEN FOR FOOLS WHO WILL”BUY IT ANYWAY”. 

I HAVE VIDEOS AND EVIDENCE THAT WILL PERSUADE THEM TO THE TRUTH I HAVE BRIEFLY STATED HERE. I ALREADY KNOW IT WILL WORK AND WORK WELL BECAUSE OF MY ONLINE FRIENDS IN MY SOCIAL CIRCLES AS WELL AS MY YOUTUBE FOLLOWERS, AND MY GIRLFRIEND WHO HAS A FOLLOWING ON XBOX ONE AND WHO AS A GIRL CAN RELATE EASILY TO THE MUCH RESPECTED COMMUNITY OF FEMALE GAMERS. 

     ALREADY THOSE WHO I HAVE PLEADED THIS CASE TO ALONG WITH THAT PROOF I STATED HAVE BEEN BLOWN AWAY AT THE SIGHT OF GREEDY ACTIONS I HAVE SHOWN THEM. ......... REGRETTABLY, I DEFENDED ACTIVISION TO THOSE SAME PEOPLE HOPING THAT THEY HAD SIMPLY LOST THERE WAY AND WERE ON A TEMPORARY LEARNING CURVE THAT WOULD, I HAD HOPED, REMINDED THEM THAT THE FANS OF THE GAMING COMMUNITY ARE PASSIONATE AND WILL NOT BE TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. BUT UNFORTUNATLY AS OF TODAY WITH THE ACTIVISION AGENT SEEMINGLY CALLING ME A LIAR, OR TELLING ME THAT ITEMS; THAT THERE IS NO EVIDENCE FOR(OTHER THEN A LIST, HE CLAIMS; TO BE ACCURATE(SAME PEOPLE WHO I GUESS HAVE A MIN, BY MIN UPDATE OF EVERY ITEM YOU HAVE GOTTEN, WHEN EXACTLY YOU GOT THEM, AND MORE IMPORTANTLY, WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO GET THINGS YOU DONT YET HAVE)BUT MY GAME SHOWS THAT I GOT NOTHING. BECAUSE OF AN ERROR!,,,, AND NOTHING HAS APPEARD, NO GREEN STAR SYMBOLS ANYWHERE, ZERO NOTICEABLE ITEMS AT ALL, OR EVEN ARMORY COINS FROM ANY OF THESE DUPLICATE ITEMS.... 

A DECLARATION OF WAR HAS BEEN DRAFTED. I AM ALREADY SENDING OUT A YOUTUBE VIDEO SHOWING THAT IN LOCAL PLAY ON THE DAY THE GAME WAS RELEASED, EVERY GUN AND VARIANT OF THOSE GUNS WERE IN THE GAME, AND AS ACTIVISION MAY STATE; THE NEW CONTENT THEY “CREATE AFTER RELEASE” ISNT PART OF THE CONTENT WHEN WE BOUGHT THE GAME, THIS VIDEO PROVES THATS A LIE BECAUSE THE GUNS SO FAR RELEASED ALONG WITH NUMEROUS VARIENTS HAVE MATCHED 100% WHAT WE HAVE SEEN SO FAR AND ALONG WITH ALL THE GUNS THAT THE GAME WILL EVENTUALLY HAVE.... THUS PROVING IT WAS CONTENT WITHIN THE GAME THE DAY OF RELEASE... AND THEY HAVE SIMPLY HIDDEN AND LOCKED THEM(IN TURN PROVING THEY HAVE TOTAL CONTROL OF EVERY ITEM, YOUR ABILITY TO, OR NOT TO, EVER COLLECT THOSE ITEMS) AND INSTEAD SLOWLY RE INTRODUCING THESE ITEMS(BY UNLOCKING THEM) REBRANDING THEM AS “NEW CONTENT”... THAT'S ENOUGH TO PROVE THEY HAVE BROKEN THE ”PAY TO PLAY” LAW AND THE ”CONSUMERS PURCHASERS AGREEMENT”, BY WITHHOLDING PROPERTY THAT YOU LEGALLY OWN... AND HAVE LEGALLY PURCHACED. I WILL POST THIS WHOLE RANT ON EVERYTHING, EVERYWHERE AND TO ANYONE I CAN... SO THEY CAN SEND IT ON, AND ON, AND ON...... COD IS DEAD, IF THE FANS WANT THIS TO CHANGE, START ACTING PASSIONATE ABOUT IT. PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN, DEMAND A BETTER PRODUCT AND IF THEY REFUSE “WITCH THEY HAVE PROVEN WITH EVERY ASPECT OF THIS GAME” THEN DO NOT... DO NOTTTTTT BUY THE NEXT ONE. NO MATTER WHAT REVIEWS YOU SEE ONLINE! 

      HERES A SECRET...,,....  I HAVE TWO FRIENDS WHO UPLOAD GREAT REVIEWS OF EVERY UPDATE CONTAINING LARGE CHANGES, EVERY EVENT AND ITS CONTENT, AND EVERY DLC ANC ITS CONTENT BEFORE RELESE. AND THEY REVEALLED THE PERKS AND PAYMENT... ALONG WITH SPECIAL ACCSESS THEY RECVE FROM ACTIVISION IN PAYMENT OF CONSTANT GOOD REVIEWS.   THATS WHY PEOPLE HEAR THE NEWS ”THEY FIXED THIS AND ADDED THAT AND HEY... THERE GONA RELEASE THIS”, AND WE WATCH IT AFTER WE HAVE ALREADY STOPED PLAYING IN LIGHT OF ALL THE PROBLEMS WE HAVE STRUGGLED WITH AND IT DRIVES US TO MAYBE GIVE IT ANOTHER TRY. MAYBEY THEY FINALLY FIXED THAT ”BULL THAT FORCED ME TO HATE THIS GAME.   AFTER THOSE EVENTS HAVE PASSED, WE FIND OURSELVS IN A STATE OF SIMILAR PAST ISSUES. WE ARE STANDING NOT JUST AS DISAPPOINTED AS WE WERE, BUT EVEN MORE FRUSTRATED WITH THE SEEMINGLY REMARKABLE AMOUNT OF NEW ISSUE AS IF TO JUST REPLACE THE LAST “SET” OF ISSUES WE HAD PREVIOUSLY JUST HAD. THEY DO THIS TO ”EXCITE” AND ”DEPRESS” A CONSTANT PSYCHOLOGICAL MARKET TACTIC TO MANIPULATE YOU TOWARD MORE SMALL TRANSACTIONS AND MAYBE EVEN GAMERS WHO RESERVED THEMSELVES FROM BUYING THE GAME IN LIGHT OF “ALL THE ISSUES” TILL THIS MOMENT... WHEN SOME, YOUTUBER REINFORCES A FALSE ASSERTION THAT THE GAME IF FINALLY WORKING PROPERLY AND IS NOW ”REDIMABLE”. IF YOU HAVE A BRAIN, AI HAVE REFUNDED MY BLACK OPS 4 PREORDER ALONG WITH MY GIRLFRIENDS XBOX ONE BLACK OPS 4 PREORDER. THAT'S AT LEAST 200$ THEY WILL NEVER SEE..... SORRY FOR THE LENGTH BUT THIS IS TRUE AND I HAVE OFFICIALY AFTER 50 DAYS OF TIME PLAYED, IM TO DISGUSTED TO WATCH ANYMORE.

I had the same issue with the disappearing supply drops and constantly getting dupes and xp boost. Pistol grips not so much cause that's all I got for the first few months

There are supply drop bugs been getting those myself ...

 Though i have to say ive aquired almost every weapon in the game without spending any money on this game except for a dlc which i deleted...every weapon has come from free supply drops and quests but I've been playing since last xmas.

Some weapons are harder more rare to get than others.

I would never buy with real money supply drops lol .. that's just silly.. i saw a YouTuber spend 100$ on supply drops and only got like 2 heroics the rest was garbage.

Btw of course the game keeps a database of items you have and recieve  this is just how the internet works. 

When you spend money on something that isn't guaranteed like a chance loot (supply drop) you are essentially taking a risk/ gambling.  Don't do this! the casino/system isn't set up for you to win it is setup for them to take your money and give you just enough to keep you coming back for more.

I tried to read it. Honest I did . But I couldn't really understand it. Then I got to the part where caps lock got stuck and gave up. Good luck with whatever it is you're trying to do?

OP is a rank 1200 master prestige pro-player

 

It’s likely the supply drop system is rigged to not give you that last gun or two unless you spend $$$ in-game.

Legally, Activision are not technically allowed to charge for content (including guns) in the game on delivery, as all the guns were.

OP was snaked out of the supply drops he bought in-game by an ‘error’

Its official that some youtubers and pros are payed to give positive reviews and hype up incoming updates

That's an awful lot of Google University lawyering going on. Sadly, you are mistaken on everything that you said. It's Activision's product- what legal basis, and I am asking for an actual case file, can you offer up to support your claim, as it applies to the overall legality of whatever you are stating Activision can not legally do.
