Folks, this is the best CoD has ever beeeeeeen! It's better than MW 07 even yet the maps are a tad lesser and increased visual clutter on a MP map is always unwelcome, it's still peak CoD and peak console FPS MP in the quick TTK category anyway. It's made improvments I think will become the staple of the genre in the future and managed to lay off a lot of the nonsense they were going on with for years.
The bad news is there are XP tokens and boosts already baked in and given freely, some skins provide a clear advantage like a certain civilian I won't spoil which is so random to see among soldiers I've hestitated multiple times and gotten myself killed and the game is absolutely primed for MT's in everything from the UI to the grind in all aspects and those XP tokens they're giving out is akin to a drug dealer giving out a free sample. Fuvk them to fuck if they ruin sonething so pure and wholesome as Modern warfare '19.
Spent a couple hours on it today and it looks like the fun ended, the maps aren't just lack luster they are now changing the meta. People have started taking to camping (on ps4 with cross play off anyway) in mass and it's not rare to find a game where noone is moving on thebmap at all, instead crawling around, camping spots or just holding down a building. It was so fun but today has been absolute bollachs. Only the maps from the beta, minus the cave map are anywhere near playable and the only actual fun one is Hackney Yard. So every game mode but domination is out. I think this is intentional to stop people getting too good at the game so everyone gets 'some fun' like a fucking participation badge but it has backfired badlynand herenI now feel Bobby Koticks dick in my ass.
Yup, looks like I made the right call not enabling Activision's greed by buying the game. SBMM is back, and the maps are cluttered as hell, so the lobbies are chalk full of sweaty try hard campers. 402THUNDER literally called the game Ghosts 2.0. I guess Advanced Warfail (worst CoD until IW) taught them nothing. Then again, people have nothing to teach Acti until they STOP BUYING THEIR GAMES!
Seriously, DRM, 56 GB day 1 patch, console exclusive game mode, SBMM, terrible maps and campers, what next? Post-review loot boxes? Oh wait, that's exactly what they're gonna do, just like they did with BO4.
