I bought the new Modern Warfare long before all the Blizzard controversy. Personally I thought they made a terrible decision when they banned Blitzchung and and even worse decision when they lied about the reasons in their PR bullshit after the fact. I have been a Blizzard fan for decades but I think it’s very clear that this is not the same company it used to be. With that said, I think that there are a lot of people at Activision/Blizzard who are just trying to make cool games and they have nothing to do with these stupid business decisions.
I’d like for THOSE people to know that I love the new Modern Warfare and I appreciate all their hard work. I’m a huge fan of the back to basics feel and the return to more interesting map designs. I know some people liked the three lane run and gun style of the past few Call of Duty games but I’ve always been a fan of maps that have hidey holes and verticality. I see a lot of complaints about “campers” which reminds me of my days playing Quake 20 years ago. I laughed at people who complained about camping back then and I think it’s just as ridiculous today. It’s like British soldiers getting upset because colonists would not line up in an open field and march at them until they died. You are mad that other people are being clever.
This is the best Call of Duty game in years and the people who busted their asses to make it deserve to hear that regardless of (or maybe especially because of) how fucked their company is.
