Average Call of Duty player:


Since the two biggest FPS franchises will go head to head later this year, and since the competition is already heating up with serious fighting words from both EA and Activision, we thought of something on the lighter side. A little swing, a little joke towards all the Call of Duty players and fanboys. We expect heavy retaliation from CoD blogs and fan sites out there ;)

      I don’t like to compare BF to COD cause BF is tactical realistic and bigger battles COD is hide and go seek with guns and just a game to play when u are board and feel braindead I prefer Battlefield though

        The BF, COD & MOH series’ are not tactically realistic. If you want to play a game that is tactically realistic play the Operation Flashpoint (OF) series. BF, COD & MOH are games for people who like to run & gun, or run in & overwhelm opponents. It doesn’t matter, because in BF, COD & MOH you can take bullets kill your opponent, then run away (at full speed) to get a med kit & heal yourself. Try doing that crap in any of the OF series games & you will be in for a big surprise. In OF you get hit in the leg & you cannot run full speed, you limp. Also, you MUST attend to your wounds A.S.A.P. or you will bleed to death. A med pack only stops the bleeding. You have to call on a corpsman to fix your wounds & that takes time. You are basically stuck in one spot until the corpsman can fix your wound.

        Also, if you take too much damage, you cannot move, & all you can do is call for a corpsman to save your life. If the corpsman doesn’t get to you in time, you die.

        Point blank, in BF, COD & MOH you simply run in, all guns blazing, & if you die it’s no big deal, you simply re-spawn & go after the guy who killed you. In OF, however, the goal is to STAY ALIVE to help your team.

        So, I don’t see how you can state that BF is tactically realistic. It’s not. It’s a “cartoon” shooter in comparison to certain other games that pride themselves on realism.

          I agree with your initial comment that the BF doesn’t sport complete “tactical realism”, However making death or injury carry such serious repercussions turns off most gamers.(OF RR’s poor sales is evidence) The scale slides both ways from games touting mechanics where a player could potentially take his body weight in lead during a match and not die once(COD), to play in which a single bullet to an extremity could result in death(OF) Developers have to strike a fine balance between realism and playability, and Dice has found that recipe in the BF series. The ultimate goal in developing a game is not complete realism, nor is it to create a rampaging, hair on fire, death fest. In the end it comes down to what sells. Battlefield is a much more cerebral experience than COD, i don’t think anyone would argue that fact, and OF takes it a step further. But that step, for most gamers, is a step too far. In the end if you want complete and total immersion and “tactical realism” join the marines. If you want a “tactically sound” shooter go out and buy a BF series game and thank me later.

          Ah, Flashpoint. Island Supremacy was AMAZING when I got my friends together on there. Even Salt Flats was awesome. Calling artillery in from the cockpit of the helicopter while flying recon for my friends or transporting them from point to point into hot LZs and such. That stuff got epic if you were going against a good team. Loved owning a team of stat boosted Generals and Colonels on there. And when your birds were dead, they stayed dead. No respawning vehicles and limited ammo meant thinking ahead of time and streamlined planning.

          Not that I flew all the time. I could more than hold my own on the ground with iron sights and smoke.

          @Zero Zulu Bravo- I agree that Dragon Rising took it a step further than most gamers would like. But for console, Dragon Rising fills a niche for people looking for more in my opinion. I’m not saying it doesn’t have it’s flaws, believe me it does. But my buddies on console are mostly vets (myself included) and like to get together on Dragon Rising and throw down for a few hours ’til people stop joining our games. And ya, not many people are on there any more but for a bit there were some newbies that were joining our games (I guess because of Red River).

          But that didn’t last long so we go back and forth between BC2 and GRAW2. Been saving up for a good PC to play ArmA and move on to a bigger experience but that means leaving my buds behind and playing with people I don’t know….and that never goes well for me in any shooter.

          Getting randoms to volley fire on an enemy tank is hopeless let alone getting them to talk. But as for BF3, I’m stoked and it will be my most played game for a LONG time. Just hope the stingers and AA keep the spawn camping bastards to a minimum. LOL!

          Yes, but you see, no one plays Operation Flashpoint. Dragon Rising had some of the worst ballistics and AI that i’ve ever seen. I haven’t played Red River, however. It might not be as terrible. Just don’t compare Battlefield to Call of Duty, because in the competition between the two Battlefield is definately more tactical and squad dependent. Yet, it’s still meant to have fun with. Obviously a United States Marine wouldn’t just jump into an FA-18 and start flying around, it’s a game. If you want a real simulation play MilSim Airsoft, might actually get some people into shape. :P

          Ya, I played airsoft. Nothing like seeing a bunch of out of shape civvies running around wearing their gear wrong or wearing so much gear that they can barely move. I’ve played with some milsim guys and they were just a bunch of wannabes who ACTED military but didn’t BEHAVE like military.
          Cracks me up everytime. I stopped going to games ’cause me and my bro got tired of people who didn’t know what they were doing, didn’t follow orders, and basically just ran around. LOL!
          A bunch of kids who read a couple of books and watched a couple of movies and thought they were military/tactical experts then found out it’s harder to pull off in real life than people think. So ya, being former military myself, the “milsims” I ran into in airsoft were a sad, disorganized joke.

          To be honest with you, Operation Flashpoint was crap along with Red River was crap.

          The only game that the military uses as a simulator would be ARMA series. If you may good sir go look at youtube, it is probably close to realism as you can get for a simulator.

          Battlefield 3, MOH, COD is a game. None of them were quite made to be a realistic game to be right into the warzone, no. They were made to satisfy the needs of Gamers about how CLOSE you can get to realism. (Graphics, Visuals, Sounds, ETC)

          COD can add some tactical points of view but not as much as Battlefield nor MOH. For Battlefield you have a squad, a Squad of which you can talk to and watch your back as you plant a bomb or defend a flag or even defend a vehicle. In COD you have yourself…and your team caring only about there K/D ratio along with Attachments…..achievements…..points….ranks….w/e.

          For Battlefield we care about those as well, but not as much because in order to win the “Round” we need to work as a team as players split up to take objective A and the other team to take B.

          @Jay- If that was a response to me, I was talking about airsoft milsims and I have ARMA. I thought Dragon Rising was good and had potential but it had a lot of glitches they refused to fix. These are games and ARMA is a game. You can call it a milsim if you want and it’s damn close to the real deal but I’ve served and my buddies didn’t respawn.
          But for those who choose not to serve but still want toplay Rambo, or whatever, without the threat of death, that’s what games are for and opinions are just opinions.
          I loved Dragon Rising, you thought it was crap. That’s ok, but for console, Dragon Rising is about as close as you’re gonna get to ARMA on console.

          But I’m slamming the armor in BF3 and have a great time with my friends.

          Operation Flashpoint – Dragon Rising is my kind of military FPS it is the one and only one game I have a platinum trophy from and OF – Red River I never bought, played or even looked at more than twice I hate Codemasters because the funny way they brought out the DLC for Dragon Rising on my PS3. To me when I play BF3 it gives some of the same feelings Dragon Rising give me but I wish DICE did not use regenerative helth I would rather have wounds that ment you cannot run full speed and you limp also if hit in the arm makes aiming harder till you got treated by a medic. I am hardcore the more realistic the more fun I have.

          BF3 has a lot of tactical potential. And Dragon Rising was a blast for me and my buds. People complained about the A.I. but once you figured out how to work around the bugs they ironically performed better than the majority of randoms I get stuck with on BF3.

          Sure, Dragon Rising wasn’t without it’s flaws. It was good game just faltered in execution. With that being said, I have yet to find a game that gives me the same satisfaction as playing Island Supremacy on Dragon Rising. But BF3 is good for now until a bigger, more tactical game comes out.

          Still sad how an almost unknown developer (KAOS Studios) can get a 50 person player count with the biggest maps and most vehicles I’ve ever seen on console. (Yes, bigger than ANY BF3 map). The game I’m talking about is——Frontlines:Fuel of War.

          And people can cry “Frostbite engine blah blah blah graphics and destructibility”….But BF3 has barely HALF the destruction of BC2. So it’s too bad Fuel of War’s servers are down.

          ArmA 2 has been mentioned, which I will reiterate is extremely realistic, especially if you are running the ACE2 mod. Amazing level of detail to the mechanics and very steep learning curve, but a great deal of fun when you get used to it. There’s even a mod called ACRE, which realistically simulates radio useage, low power radios become staticy at distance, channels, different antenna options, etc.

          No one mentioned Red Orchestra 2: Heroes of Stalingrad. It’s fairly hardcore and quite realistic though not in the same vein as the ArmA series. Setting is WW2 eastern front, focusing on the Battle of Stalingrad. I personally love the bipod deployment system and ability to adjust the elevation of the open sights and optics on all the weapons that had adjustable sights in reality.

          tl;dr
          Red Orchestra 2:Heroes of Stalingrad. <3

          @Mark first of all: who the hell you think you are to talk about Battlefield 3 like that?

          second of all: noone and i mean NOONE, cares about how realistic your stupid game Operation Flashpoint is and if you die you do not spawn again and the amount of damage you take by 1 shot, Battlefield 3 is called “BATTLEFIELD” and in a BATTLEFIELD there is lots of soldiers, so that is why there is RESPAWNS, and if Battlefield 3 players took has many damage has you described in your retarded game then i ould not play BF3 anymore, and if you are talking about realistic BF is the closest, cause it is the game with the best graphics in the world, that is why it is the most realistic

          third of all: this is a Battlefield3blog, if you want to talk about your retarded game then go to your games blogs, and never EVER EVER EVER compare BF3 to CoD cause what CoD did was: “grab MW2, new maps, SLIGHTLY improved graphics, then off you go to sale” and never EVER compare CoD to MoH cause even if MoH is not such a great thing has BF3, it is still better then CoD Modern Warfare 3.

          fourth of all: STOP SPAMMING THE BF3 SITES IF YOUR NOT GONNA TALK ABOUT BF3 AND HOW IT COULD BE IMPROVED

          I completly understand your point. I know what you are talking about and I understand how things would work that way. But if you had as much adrenaline running through your body as soldiers do during a firefight, you could get run over by a car and then stand back up right afterwards. When you calm down and adrenaline wears off, you will most likely die from the trauma. But during the heat of the moment, the human body can take a lot of hits.

          Snipers… weren’t team players though.

          They camp up and kill off non-contributing stragglers… who just respawn again and again.

          How often do you see a sniper with good flag position defending his troops capturing a flag? Rarely. Normally, he’s in some random spot, killing off random soldiers. Good for your K/D. Bad for your team.

          I’d honestly prefer to be against those snipers, than have them in your squad… “Quick, I need to spawn close to the action!! wtf are you doing waaaayyyy out here?”

          This is an example of someone who only knows stuff based on popular culture…

          Snipers take one shot and MOVE. (or two or even three). The more shots they fire, the more likely they will die. Yes, at one point sniping was sitting there and ‘sniping’ but that was back when technology was poor and their idea of military training was standing in a line all bunched up so that if you aimed anywhere near the center of them you’d hit someone and they’d die due to their weak medical skills.

          Do that now and you’ll be in the underworld and when they ask you how you died, you’ll be like: I shot at some people then suddenly everything went black…. if you are lucky anyways…

        Did you play BC2: Vietnam? They did a good job balancing the weapons imo. That and the hilly maps with lot of terrain, didn’t give snipers a 1-spot-snipe-all location… Too bad there were only like 3 maps, it would have been much more popular if they had more maps.

          Snipers are basically loan soldiers. They go off and hunt people and when they kill a person, that person tends to change to sniper and shoot you because he saw where you were. I seriously think sniper rifles should NOT have tracer rounds. Every time you shoot you give away your position, which is not unrealistic since you are shooting a high-powered rifle, but the tracer gives your exact position away for anyone who isn’t even looking for you. Its hard to miss a tracer bullet emerging from a bush. I also find it dumb when you look at a hill with 3-4 snipers sitting on top of it. Its like shooting grouse, shoot from bottom to top and you get 4 kills with little effort. REMOVE TRACERS FROM SNIPER RIFLES!!!

          @Amras86 GREAT! Now tracers are gone on sniper rifles (at least low powered rifles or on light maps like kharg island)! Without those tracers it’s hard to adjust to the new bullet drop. It takes FOREVER to figure out where your bullet went, but by then you’re already running for cover because you were shooting repeatedly to see if you can see your bullet. I used to have a 70% accuracy of headshots on people in BF: BC2, but now I have trouble landing a bullet on on a carrier!

It gets old when you know that same sniper is watching that same doorway for half the match but i didn’t have that much of a problem in Battlefield games as i did in Call of Duty, quick/drag scoping aside. I’m not big on sniping myself, but i liked to get a good position where i could watch over the team objective, unless the objective is to kill the other team and that’s it. Only Battlefield game i played where i despised sniping was Battlefield 1943. RPGs and “noob tubes” in Battlefield have been great because they aren’t necessarily used for killing people, when i played Bad Company 2 i used them for blowing holes in walls, or working to collapse building, or shooting vehicles (mostly used engineer with anti tank mines). If there was a room with 2 or 3 guys in it that were just camping it up then i’d bust the tube out and teach them a lesson but it was never about chasing someone down or trying to kill randoms with tubes and RPGs like it Call of Duty. They serve more of a purpose in Battlefield and i love it. Also, BC2 was all large open areas, with a bunch of random buildings to run in and out of, that’s how i fought against snipers for the most part, or if they didn’t move ever, i’d spawn somewhere else and shoot them with my assault rifle, they went pretty far in that game. (random comment: i’m glad shotguns in BF go more than 5-10 feet like they do in COD.

          I completely agree with you. i myself prefer sniping even though i play all modes i favor sniping the most. i dont spawn snip or anything i mostly snip on conquests due to the fact a couple of us can cover a flag. every time i kill someone i will move within 10 seconds to cover where i am! some people will see that as unfair due to the fact they will want to come and kill me but they forget the purpose of the battle experience and the purpose of a sniper and take it all personal. its not my problem if i have moved 30 times in one game and killed the same guy 10 times i dont camp and choose one spot to look down my sights and kill its the enemy guy who decides to try a different route and find him self shot due to the fact i have moved. what frustraights me these days is the lack of people using mics i always have a team (friends i who want a real game who i have added or they added me once in a while) we always communicate and if im sniping they will tell me where they want cover and ill provide with another sniper simple thats what we are for. on call of duty all i play now is zombies i hate multiplayer you can never illustraight a strategy and 99% of the people who own mics are 9 year olds bunking of school! no disrespect to cod players as im one myself i have the complete series but unfortunately i wont be buying mw3 as they lack in providing the graphics to make the game worthwhile.

          I hate how everyone is hating Snipers, I’m 14 years old, I snipe, but I’m not a noob at it, I take the speed of the bullet, the muzzle velocity, the gravity for the distance, the speed the player/target is moving at, and I try to predict their walking/running paths, if they go into a building which is a choke point for my team, I send a mortar strike down onto the building and then I wait until I see another target and I predict their movements and when they stop, I take a pot shot and always score a headshot. I always try to get a headshot so that I get an instant kill and don’t need to worry about him/her revealing my position to the enemy team. When I’m playing rush, I move to a Over-watch point and provide sniper cover for my team to move up their flanks, some times I will kill a target that is close and I pick up their weapon ( Assault or Engineer classes only ) and then I move up their flank, I do this because I am still wearing the Ghillie Suit and moving up their flanks with a Ghillie Suit and an Assault Rifle is a perfect combination for an infiltration into the enemy base. Occasionally, I equip C4 and place it on bridges and I wait for enemy hostiles and vehicles to go onto the bridge and I then blow up the bridge, killing or destroying their equipment or the player them-self. I always have a mic on when I play BF:BC2 so I can inform them of enemy emplacements, positions and possible choke-points that could catch them off guard and then I will mark them out. If there is an friendly helicopter in the air, I keep my sniper’s crosshair on any anti-air placements, because guaranteed, in every game, there’s always one noob that carelessly rushes to an anti-air gun when they notice a helicopter. I mostly go the Recon class. I’m always on PSN, taking down tanks and helicopters, sometimes I even infiltrate the enemy spawn in conquest and take the enemy chopper :P

          I snipe all the time and I can’t count how many times I’ve seen, shall I say, idiot snipers. By that I mean Snipers who are in terrible spots, such as on the roof(s) of Bravo in Operation Firestorm (console). The problem I have with shooting and moving is that, on most maps, the really good Sniper spots are all too far away from one another to get to without getting shot and killed 90% of the time, which is the reason I usually stay within the same 100m area. The only map I snipe on that has good sniper spots that aren’t nearly impossible to get to is Tehran Highway on the Russian side. However, those spots are only good for counter-sniping enemy who snipe from the building and/or ledge at the U.S. deployment zone on said map. In response to team sniping. Often, when my cousin and I both snipe, we assign the role of Sniper and Spotter to each other, one of us, the Shooter (Sniper) will have the high power scope and do all the shooting. The other, the Spotter, will usually have either a Sniper Rifle of Assault Rifle with a lower power scope (usually a 4X) that allows for wider view and easier spotting. The Spotter will then direct the Shooter to a target, which he will proceed to eliminate. However, my cousin and I are the only one’s I’ve ever seen that play like that. We also move from place to place if possible.

        There is a difference between a good sniper and a bad one, just like there is a difference between a good and bad player in any class. A good sniper will follow your squad a a distance, camp out and find where the enemy is and then mark them for the rest of his team. Knowing were the enemy is more valuable then another bullet hose with you. Granted that this alone could be done by any player but if he has a sniper rifle, he can contribute to the fight then at range. He has the place able spawn point so that you don’t spawn in front of enemies and instead at a safe location.

        A bad sniper is some one that hides some where and just picks off stragglers.

      As a newcomer to fps games with COD Black ops being my first I am trying to get into BF3, from just a weekend of playing so far there are a few downfalls/issues I see that should be addressed, sometimes its the simple things that matter.
      Wait time in between matches is to long, no customization of classes guns anything while in the waiting screen (huge downfall all customizations must be made during gameplay-LAME), no simple back button to go to previous page like OUT of multiplayer to home page (um why?!), in game issues I have found are sometimes you can clearly shoot someone a BUNCH of times and they do not die but turn and shoot you for a split second and you die even though you are 100% health. Small issues that should be addressed.

      Some things I feel COD is better at is screen/game page setup as stated above, the feel of the game is faster and I prefer that to keep things moving and exciting. COD having 3 specializations is far superior to BF3s one specialization. Can really make your characters YOURS.

      I am into to lots of specializations as I come from 8 years of online RPG Ultima Online PVP background. Much more skilled, Diverse PVP combat.

      All and all I got BF3 to test it and I may keep it and have both MW3 and BF3 and really give a better review once it releases.

        see, i disagree with you, i enjoy being able to change my class setup in game, i hate how COD does it because if i mess up fixing my class cause i couldnt get it done in the 30s it gives me between matches, im stuck with it for the rest of the match. as for shooting someone 100 times and they turn around and kill you quickly… aim for the head and not the legs. and lastly… your 3 perks. BF3 tried to maintain a realsitic approach to a COD idea. we all know perks and instant gratification are the shit, but where COD lets you have 3 perks, BF3 essentially lets you have 4 perks. how is this you might ask? they are called squad perks, whatever you have as a perk, your squad also gets, if all 4 of you have different squad perks, then you personally get 4 perks. so it is actually better than COD but requires teamwork, which is what BF3 emphasizes. i myself was a huge COD fan back in the day, but BC2 blew my mind, while i continue to buy the COD games, they only hold my attention for a short while before i find myself cussing out some 9yo kid. BF3′s many different playstyles holds my attention for much longer, if im gettin my ass whooped on the ground, ill jump in a jet or helicopter until i get my mojo back.

          it works in CoD because there is a lot of small corridors and streets. There aren’t much room so it’s easier to spray then aim. But in BF there is a lot of open space so its VERY hard to hit some on. Maybe it works in both games but it’s a lot more effective in CoD then in BF (A reason that i prefer BF).

      True. Of course both can be played in a smart or stupid manner, but Battlefield is like chess in that it’s more complex than Call of Duty, like checkers, is less complex.

      Of course it will sell more. But luckily that will make for a great method of deciding who should take a boat to the end of the world and stay there.

      CoD-games before:
      Game engine: Based on Quake 3 engine (1999)
      Maps: Small
      Land/Air/Water warfare: Yes/no/no
      Scaled up to HD from non-HD resolution.

      CoD-games now:
      Game engine: Based on Quake 3 engine (1999)
      Maps: Small
      Land/Air/Water warfare: Yes/no/no
      Scaled up to HD from non-HD resolution.

      Battlefield before:
      Game engine: Frostbite 1.0 in Battlefield 2 and Frostbite 1.5 in BFBC2
      Maps: Ranging from extreme to medium.
      Land/Air/Water warfare: Yes/Yes/Yes
      Proper resolution.

      Battlefield now:
      Game engine: Frostbite 2.0 (with insane-scale destruction)
      Maps: Ranging from extreme to medium. (Newer and bigger maps now)
      Land/Air/Water warfare: Yes/Yes/Yes (new vehicles added in every game)
      Insanely realistic graphics (DX11 and above)

      So, how’s that for a good game? Modern Warfare 3 will surely sell more, but as I said, the sales figures tell us nothing about the gameplay of the games. You know I’m right when I say Modern Warfare 2 = Modern Warfare 3. There is literally no difference besides the maps.

      MW3 will do just as good as Bo did in terms of sales. Just so you know that sales doesn’t mean that the game is better than other competitors of COD.

        There are at least 7 CoD games. CoD 1, 2, & 3, MW 1 & 2, World at War, and Black Ops. BF isn’t far behind CoD in quantity either…BF 1 & 2, Bad Company 1 & 2, 1942, 2142, and Vietnam(2004 game, not the BC2 add-on). that’s 7 listed for both franchises. For the record I’ve played CoD since CoD 2 in 2005 and Battlefield since Modern Combat in 2005 and plan on getting both BF3 and MW3.

If you really want to get technical that also includes the first game released caled Codename Eagle.

          Call of Duty has 8 Titles total.

          Both series have 8-9 Games in their timelines. Battlefield has just started 5 years before CoD. Me personally I love Battlefield a ton more than CoD, I like having teamates, not 10 year old prepubescent little twerps screaming in my ear.

          I am pretty sure the Quality over Quantity arugment is for the over all quality of the game. As in BF has stepped up and improved graphics, game play about every year and a half where COD has just renamed the same piece of crap every year with different maps, and in some cases brought back the same terrible maps to newer versions of the game.

          I have played all the war games out. I first played Battlefield 1942 and was hooked. I do not like it for the PlayStation 3 to get the full affect play it on the PC. It is awesome. COD and MW are fun for a while and good single missions but for the full experience of war I go with BF2 and now 3. You are not just running around shooting each other. BF you have to plan your moves. It is the best of online gaming. You are in real war.COD,MW are lame and lame ass people stick up for them both.I have all the games out and BF has me hooked. What they need to do is put X box players against PlayStation players in the battlefield. Us against them. Some of my friends play MW and COD.When they get on BF they have a hard time scoring point and adjusting to the real war style for real men. They do get the hang of it and then they are hooked. So death to all CODS and MW lame as monkeys with two pistols spraying one another.Lame as people will not admit defeat and continue to say BF sucks.Get with the program for full online gameing

      Time will tell which game will actually retain it’s player base. It’s not fair to say that COD retains it’s player base, because they frequently churn out the same basic game but call it something different, to hold people over.

      BFBC2 is still pretty strong, and it’s 2 years old. Halo games each had 3 year stretches of steady players.

      The way I judge a game is the core gameplay not being cheesy and a good mix of competitive and casual play. MW has the casual part, but not the other.

    In the end, “Cod will sell more copies, however BF3 will be the better game”, as stated in the PSM3 article. But I personally don’t care if BF3 crushed MW3, I don’t want COD players playing BF3. It would be a frenzy of idiots running trying to take a tank on with their M4′s or standing in the open like idiots trying to shoot a guy in cover. These are the people I wouldn’t want on my team, however, I don’t care if they are on the other team cause then they are just easy pickings. But for me to enjoy the game I need the teamwork hence why I pretty much play PR most of the time. All in all, let the COD players play COD, and leave the real players to their BF3 =D

      Im a kid, and I love battlefield. I believe there are two classes of kids who play first person shotters like Battlefield and COD, and they are: kids who have played battlefield and hate COD, and kids who play COD and hate Battlefield. I left out the people who have switched from COD to Battlefield and the other way around.

        Except you didn’t leave them out, you actually mentioned them. And forgot about those who don’t play either game because they are addicted to WoW. Don’t forget those who play BOTH and like both, bringing our grand total of all possible permutations to SIX. Or for fun we could also throw in the people who play both, but hate CoD/BF yet feel compelled to play it because they wasted $60 on it and have to justify the purchase. Or those who bought both and mildly enjoy one but strongly like (not love) the other…and so on ad infinitum.

    ive been a major CoD gamer for a while but ive always played battlefield since BF1942 for PC. CoD= no tactics, no team work, and no skill

    BF= needed teamwork, skill is a must but can be atributed to moral of the player due to his team, and as a leader of a tactical realism clan tactics are a must for a sure fire win.

    if anyone wants to give this a try ( the clan i mean) my screen name is my gamer tag for xbox live.

    I don’t know why everyone says that MW3 will sell tons of copies. Here’s why I don’t think so:

    MW2 sold a ton because it was the most overhyped game EVER since it was the sequel to a pretty awesome game.

    Black Ops sold even more because it was set during the badass Cold War, the concept was awesome and people started turning to Treyarch after the MW2 hacks and all that crap.

    MW2 won’t sell a ton because it’s the sequel to an awfully disappointing game. And plus, it’s not Infinity Ward who develops the game, at least not the original team.

      People actually liked MW2, yeah can you believe it? So MW3, maybe not as much as MW2, but it’s going to sell too well than it deserves.

      Man, I really hate how they over hype every CoD game so people will forget why they sold their last CoD, the life expectancy of a CoD game for me is a month or two. Now a BF game’s life expectancy for me is like 2 years, I’m still playing BC2 waiting anxiously for BF3.

        It is sad that you like to call yourself a “BF Veteran” after only playing one or two of the series games. It is the same as me going on about how i am football legend after playing a game with my friends. Also i played BF2 for at least 5 years and BF1942 around the same amount so a decent BF game can be expected to entertain me for about the same amount of time.

          And it’s also sad to see that you true veterans always have to say that newer BF fan(boys) BC/BC2 dont understand what it’s all about and that we are not allowed to express our opinion (hate/love) in the COD/BF war that’s going on. We have to start at some point.

          Also, smoke week everyday.

          @Ruukinen Where do you get the fact that he’s only played one or two Battlefield games? You assume he’s only played BFBC2 just because he admits that he still plays that. Also, just because he calls himself a veteran, can mean many things. It does not have to mean “Oh, I’m the best.” Veteran could very well mean you’re very well experienced with the subject. No one gives a shit how long you’ve been playing the BF series.
