Really!? Adding a simple 50+ extra score per kill is considered your "new gamemode?" Are you absolutely serious right now? What about the 100 max score for 6v6 TDM? Why not simply have normal kills worth 100-125 points WITH added points for other merits like killchains, killstreaks, and headshots?
I know a bunch of you will be asking yourselves, "Why complain about getting more points?" I'm not complaining about that. I was expecting a brand new game mode. Something that was unique enough with new and unique rules, like Infected, Face-Off, and All or Nothing for example. But to my disappointment, laziness and complacency got the better of the dev team.
It takes a lot for something to upset me to the point of expanding my ranting prowess, and this is one of those moments. I'm glad it's a temporary gamemode, because it is complete garbage. If Treyarch wishes to compensate, they should replace normal TDM with this Arms Race, AND offer the 100 max score to win.
Interesting, as I was understanding most people either wanted more points per kill OR a higher kill limit. This could just be a testing ground for whether to change regular TDM to 150 pt per kill. Granted I didn't expect this, however, I wouldn't have played any other game like those you listed. This gives me something I'd actually like to play as opposed to more games I don't care for.
April Fools day is at the start of month, not the end.
If they wanted to test 125 kill points, or 100 win score , - why no just implement it. Can't be too hard to reverse if there's a backlash.
What a waste of a bonus mode :(.
hahahaha. This "new game mode" is something that would have taken any competent dev less than a minute to do. Increasing kill cound and points per kill is probably one of the easiest things to change. Nothing more than a simple ini tweak and uploaded to the server.
Thanks vandarhaar. now i have to make a 15th twitter account so you can ban and ignore me once again.
they need to stop listening to the youtubers and listen to the actual community, who want to play the game to have fun, as they're the ones making it the best selling game year in and year out.
TDM is the most popular playlist, and it's the one playlist where being annihilated by scorestreaks is a rare occurance (not counting S&D but that's for entirely different reasons).
youtubers are looking to pubstomp the casual players out of the game by raising the score limit so they can drop swarms in the one bastion these players have to hide from them.
Community inspired playlist makes people think of MW3's successful offerings of All Or Nothing, Money In The Denk and Infected, game modes that were meant for fun and very different than anything else. 6 months in and this game has only subtracted game modes from Call Of Duty. Hardpoint =/= Drop Zone but it's practically the same game.
I'm not saying Arms Race is bad, at least they're finally adding something.
A kill is now the same as Kill Confirmed without getting tags Makes KC and TDM something extra.
If they could remove BOTH with this there would be 1 more spot for one of the game modes u named right?
Or they test if people like the extra points ( I know i do because i actually make it too a VSAT and Take up my K/D and W/L and SPM up a notch )
I think that its fun because campers campers run around in it because theres some dogs coming along.
(Less campers )
