Treyarch Asks Black Ops 2 Community To ‘Go Easy On Christmas Noobs’

call_of_duty_black-ops_2_large

Treyarch has rather kindly asked Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 players to go easy on the influx of new players to the Call of Duty community this Christmas. Here’s the developers advice for both veteran players and new players to the immensely popular franchise.

“Let’s talk Christmas Noobs.”

“It’s that time of the year again where thousands of new players join the online ranks for the first time. We’d ask you to go easy on the Christmas Noobs, but we know you won’t.”

“If you are a Christmas Noob yourself, don’t be bullied. In the Combat Training category you’ll find a great playlist called Boot Camp. This is the best place for a player to get up to speed on the game and all it has to offer.”

    1. The game is a perfect port on wiiu. The framerate is 60FPS during multiplayer and Zombies like on all other platforms. But is a bit loose on campaign , bit still seems to be 45-60fps for most of the campaign…

      I haven’t been big on CoD since CoD 4 Modern warfare on 360 , it was that time I went off the series. I bought it on Wiiu to test the ”Screen each local multiplayer” and the game is worth owning for that feature alone. That feature is INSANE local fun. It puts a smile on who ever may come round to your house’s face.

      I waltzed online and anihilated the entire wiiu community of CoD gamers lol. I can first by far in about 8 different matches… funny shit.

      1. No… People finger guns, guns later in life get mad at the world and then kill people… Sometimes the one(s) who fingered them; guns don’t have that long of a life span, this process only takes maybe 10 secs.

      1. its easily as silly as blaming the guns for massacres.

        The truth is mental illness has long been ignored, and the treatments today for it actually make the problems worse and when a patient stops taking the medicine the withdrawal symptoms just make themselves snap….. until we address that we will keep seeing this happen. And banning guns will not stop a single death from occurring.

        But other than that, these n00bs have it coming.

      1. people did kill people then, you know that right? It wasn’t announced to the public as often because they didn’t want to give any ideas. FPS games lessoned the amount of murder. Its better to kill people that aren’t real. (this is just my theory)

    1. I have played FPS games and Grand Theft Auto, yet I have no intention to commit murder. I wonder why that is? Maybe the people who were “influenced” by violent video games were already fucked up in the head in the first place, and i’m not mentally ill like they are?

  1. See, this is why the CoD series gets so much hate. The games themselves aren’t bad, it’s just that they’re online gaming population consists of little more than Noobs, trolls, children, and elitist jackasses. If it’s gotten to the point where the creators of the damn games themselves have to call out the players, you know it’s gotten pathetic.

    1. My reasons for all the hate:

      -The fucked up community
      -Released annually (maybe they’d fix the lag and the spawning system and use a new engine)

      1. No skill is involved in online CoD ? of course there is.. The game has a lot of depth. The people who are the best in the world at the game , are the best in the world for a reason.

            1. All it is, is a shooting fest, the one who somehow survives it or camps wins. That is not skill. Geez, never thought I’d see Nintendo fans defending the CoD community.

    2. A fix to that is to try to shoe horn all the people within a certain range of level on different severs… At peak time when the most people are online have one server for levels 1-10, next for 11-20 and so on… I know the frustration of being level 1 and having a level 50+ Mohawk Night Elf with every perk in the book to kill you by shooting near your feet, forget even hitting you.

  2. It’s sad they have to out out a statement like this. Says a lot about CoD players.

    All CoD enthusiasts are FPS n00bs. One shot kills and camping? Real FPS skilled players play games like Halo that actually require skill to take down your opponent.

    1. ^This. CoD is just meant for fun. Me and my mates just play by ourselves and just screw around. That certain part of the communtiy though I hate, they give CoD players a bad name :/

    2. “Real FPS skilled players play games like Halo that actually require skill to take down your opponent.”

      It’s funny how there is so much of this going around, even in bad genres like FPS and MOBA. “Real FPS skilled players” actually play whichever game will make them more money. End of story. Your silly elitism makes you sound like a 12-year-old on xbox live, which is even more funny because you’re playing FPS on a console.

          1. Nothing will ever over shine the keyboard/mouse combo on a FPS, except maybe the Novint Falcon + Keyboard in a FPS.

            The next best thing is the wiimote+… although it is EXTREMELY hard to pick up and learn… The controller is a no brainer but incredibly slow to aim, but easy just to pick up and play. But to master FPS on the wiimote+ is a real test of skill.

    1. Hey core gamer, as much as using the Wiimote+ shows how big of balls you have and how godly your “skill” is. It still has nothing on mouse and keyboard.

      Other than that, you are correct. Using a regular controller (i’m looking at you 360 and ps3 players) takes absolutely no skill whatsoever, in fact my grandmother is pretty good with a ps3 controller…. real men use the wiimote or mouse/keyboard on FPS.

    1. Guns just don’t jump up and start killing people at random… it takes a person to operate it. It takes a human to comprehend the decision to take anothers life. Guns have nothing to do with it… Let me guess, you are from the UK and you believe your government looks out for your wellbeing, so you have no problem letting your government treat you like a subject instead of a citizen.
