So those that are playing the beta, what are your thoughts?
I'm fine with the gameplay but honestly the whole thing feels like a Black Ops 3 Light.
First the menus are really bad, the Specialist 'descriptions' is dark grey on black, you can hardly read it. The whole thing is dark in general, where is the colour from BO3? And you have to use a weird cursor instead of just pressing arrows for some reason.
The 'Specialists' just look like downgraded versions of the ones in BO3 in design and while intended, it takes from the fun Bo3 MP had. I like the idea that you have a killing ability and a utility in one but the charge rate is appallingly slow. I could only get 1 in a TDM and considering you can die as easily as usual, seems a bit much. You can't pick the specialist you want if someone already has it.
Healing is just an extra button to press, it seems kinda stupid, everyone has it all the time so considering in the last CoD you just hid to heal it's the same really. Grenades, flashbands, all that stuff is locked to higher levels... why? What's wrong with a grenade? SMGs are op.
Maps, too cluttered. Load times are weird, sometimes I spawn in and everyone has started, sometimes it's really quick. Waiting in a lobby is 90 seconds instead of 70 or 60... too long.
It's just not as fun as BO3. But much of that can be improved before release.
EDIT: Oh and there is this 'gear' which is basically sixth sense from BO3 on steriods. it will be nerfed.Last edited by The Fury - on 04 August 2018
