Who's getting Advanced Warfare?

Maybe this will help:

 

 

All that did was remind me of why I hate CoD multiplayer that isn't CoD4. The whole video is from the view of "that guy who always kills you before you can get a shot off."

 

 

 

I'm with you on that. Since COD4, the game has been slowly evolving into the type of shooters that I despise.

The only thing that will get me to buy this game is if my entire friends list dries up on every other game.  Even then, I might go play Minecraft.  Nothing against CoD necessarily, I've just never enjoyed them as much as many many other people.

Destiny, Halo: MCC , AC: Unity, LotR: Shadow of Mordor and Dragon Age Inquisition for me.

The Waist high pov doesn't bother you guys?

Does it change the core gameplay in any way at all? -Nope

Having to aim up from the waist high pov to headshot ppl does change the gameplay.

It's VERY noticeable when you walk up to a car and your eyes are level with the door handle, your eyes are level with a barrel on the ground etc... I cannot believe the best FPS has devolved into such crap thanks to ppl complaining about headglitching and them not finding a way to remove chin-high objects in the game or making the bullets come out of the gun, rather than your eyes!

If I do not buy this CoD, it will be the 1st time I've ever skipped a CoD. I've invested over 300 hours into every CoD except MW3 and Ghosts, due to this idiotic move by IW and now Sledgehammer.

 

It's a different way to design a game. These are still games, not real lie, after all. In my book, better to just not play the ones you don't enjoy rather than demand that the designers of a successful game change for your personal tastes.

 

I don't like the angles, either, but I know plenty of people do or just don't mind, so I say let them play it their way.

My problem is they just changed this in MW3, when sledgehammer came into the fold and most of the passionate ppl at IW left and formed Respawn. I loved CoD2/4/MW2 and until MW3 had no complaints (minus some balance issues in MW2) about the non-Treyarch CoD games.

The more that I am seeing, the more excited I am. Could just be a product of Ghosts being such a bad game though! I am pre ordered now though, so I will be on Nov. 3rd.

CoD has been getting progressively "twitch shooter" since after CoD4. Was tolerable for a while but I stopped buying after MW2.

Downloading now.

Can you only download if you ordered the digital copy? Would be nice if you could pre-download with a physical copy but only activate it when you load the disc...

Digital only. That is the selling perk of digital.

Ok, still not enough to make me switch! I liked having that disc in hand so I can trade it in if is stinks.

My guess, you can play CoD offline so it doesn't matter that mp servers are up at different times. Destiny probably wanted all the servers up at the same time nationwide hence the 3am release.

From what I heard for Destiny and all other titles preloadable before it, they were only playable before 3am EST if they were MS 1st party games. I remember seeing CoD AW stating a 3am EST time a few weeks ago, but now its 12am just like the 1st party games.

I've also seen stores stating that they will sell the game at 9pm on the west coast, I think this is the new trend :)

Ugh... Guess I will miss the 2xp on day zero.

People have been trying to narrow it down to a specific problem. Some users are having the issue, some aren't. Preview members and non preview members are both having the issue, but it appears less people with the newest preview update are having the issue.

Also, COD had a day 1 update, and it appears less people with the automatic downloads on had the issue, as it auto downloaded the update last night. Others with the issue are saying when they click The game after unlocking, it said an update was required and that's what reinstalled the whole game.

POSSIBLE FIX: some people have reported that if it starts to download all over again, HARD BOOT. Been working for some people, others not so much.

I'm on mobile so I apologize for any typos. Just wanted to make you all aware of what I've been readinf regarding the issue, and a possible fix :)

OMG the hype has slowly been brewing in me since the MP reveal and I think I'm ready to pull the trigger, even though I F'n HATE the POV they are using. Everything else about they game has impressed me and I know this should be much better than Ghosts.

Bastards are getting my money again this year! I'm getting the disc so I can trade it in, if necessary.

I'd be interested in your answer to the same one I asked last time I almost pulled the trigger on this:

 

What outside of the marketing videos makes you think this game will be any better than Ghosts?

Between the upgradeable scorestreaks, the Titanfallish/Destiny style movement it should feel much different than Ghosts did. Ghosts was about as vanilla as any CoD I've played in the past 5 years.

Oh I forgot to mention both Gamestops told me that Advanced Warfare had a $40 trade in deal withing the 1st 30 days of release, however I could not find anything on the website stating that.

Plus I rarely find myself playing Crucible in Destiny (because the loot is far less rewarding) so it will be nice to have a game that draws me into the competitive ring on a regular basis.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I came up with too. As someone who loves to play support roles, CoD still doesn't appeal to me. The only saving grace to Ghosts for me has been in going back to the campaign, there are plenty of moments where you switch to a support role temporarily.

I read a review that said the campaign in COD AW is the best in a long time, but it's still only about 8 hours to complete. I have been watch some twitch feeds on multiplayer domination matches and I am now strongly considering getting this game. I gotta decide between xbox one and ps4, but I'm leaning toward ps4.
