I think they will go back to the Cod 4 or maybe make WAW 2 but that wouldn't be enough. The whole gameplay is getting tired. Maps are getting smaller and the game is abusing supply drops. I would be fine with microtransactions if the maps were free but they are not and that is bad even for those that buy the maps. Less people play them an many times they become ghost towns.
Really, if they could go back to what treyarch was doing with world at war and then skip on the unrealistic futuristic movie bullsh*t, i might like it.
But yea...really....f*cking tired of those fictive weapons and plots that are just way to far fetched.
Not to mention their overall general way of how things works need some insane refreshing of ideas.
Not really feeling a lot of hope for this one, i am simply guessing it will be an other cod 220.127.116.11 game with more futuristic sh*t no matter what their current statements are.
I wish they would put more effort into level design in SP and make it more like the first couple. They were really imersive while not having the movie type scripted events and were more fun to replay, they were also smart in making unique levels like the one where you play as the russians and have to find a weapon from a dead comrade or enemy since you were deployed with out one because they couldn't produce many weapons.
Honestly, if there is one thing that is going pretty well forward it is how the maps kinda became a bit interactive.
Further...scripted story midsions...they are not more scripted then before...the thing is...they are just the same sh*t...which is bad.
They should trow some smarter enemy AI in it, buff the lethality of...anything, actually make supresssive fire a thing...get more basic tactical sh*t involved.
For an example i feel they were pretty good at bringing in the chaotic sh*t, lets bring that to an other level.
Let news on the intercom spread that your comander is dead while you are just blowing something up and getting surendered by enemies...you then get actual options...that is one thing BO 3 did really well.
Further i feel there is a lack of overall conflicts in the team/groups you are in ever since cod4....shame.
The bad things meant to shock people...they need to be brought in more plentyfull.
The old perks system in MP...needs a revamp ASAP.
Last team standing perk should in a way be brought back by automaticly dropping players in that mode once they are shot in the leg to much in a short period of time, being of the radar when an UAV is online should be a thing if you are not making sounds and are out of sight from the drone flying around, from the start already you should have the option to carry 2 main guns, but each gun among with the option to carry a sertain amount of extra ammo should slow you down...same for wearing extra armor or extra equipment like mines.
Weapons should have more character....the SVD...if implementing that for an example should standard have the capability to use the scope and the iron sights...but beyond that have a quite limited customisation, just like the real thing while something like an modern m16 should have loads of options.
Try to pull of some things even if they would make players mad like slowing down the reloading of rocket launchers a lot, removing quickscoping, slowing down the rate of looking trough a scope and actually seeing things...or at least with snipers, give it some short animation to zero in the crosshairs, buff shotguns a lot in regards to damage, make aiming propperly trough an high magnification optic insanely hard while walking or when standing in the open, make it possible to use objects as support for rifles and mg's...
