    I know just reading the title will make you groan, moan, or laugh at it. But COD has changed a little bit.

    With COD ELiTE being released alongside MW3, Clans were brought into the game, and unlike anything in the COD franchise before. Before, it was just the Clan Tag you could change. With Black Ops, you could have matching Playercards as well. But in MW3, and Elite, players were able to create clans properly, like in MAG/BF3. This enabled the leader to invite people, kick people, accept people into the clan etc. It also allowed for a clan title. So the clan system has improved via ELiTE, and you don’t need to buy ELiTE premium or anything to join a clan or create one. Basically, it’s like BF3 with Battlelog. BUT, MW3 is in some way better, as it not only allows you to access Friends and Recent Players but also see ANYONE in the clan, wherever if they’re on your friends list or not, online or off, etc. This is great for grouping.

    With the release of Black Ops 2 coming in November, I think this is a good time to expand to a game franchise that we’ve never properly expanded to before. If everyone gives BO2 a chance, maybe rent it for a week to check it out, then we could have a strong clan presence in COD. I know the teams only consist of 6 players on either side, if we have 6 good, tactical players from the clan on one side, then we can only win. You can mute ‘squeakers’ or annoying players FYI.

    So, I am proposing to officially have a solid branch of TLN on Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. Feel free to post your thoughts, concerns and queries below, and hopefully I can answer any questions, and address any doubters.

    Sorry but i can’t back you up because have you seen the graphics. They are adding tiny things when they should update their whole engine. It makes me laugh how games like medal of honor have a better engine then black ops 2 when they have all that money. I am anti cod and you will never convert me due to the fact that cod is no even trying to improve their game, they are giving you the same game and taking your money like taking candy from babies.

    Gummy, this is Treyarch, Treyarch are the ones who DO try, Infinity Ward are the lazy ones, and Activision are the ones taking everyone’s money. Treyarch don’t make the same games, two releases ago it was World At War, during WW2. Black Ops was in Vietnam in the 1960’s. Black Ops 2 is in the future, 2025. Nothing similar in them whatsoever, apart from one or two characters from the previous game. Infinity Ward on the other hand, just done MW, MW2, and MW3, set in a couple of years from each other. Same characters, villains, weapons. I agree that they don’t have the best of game engines, but they have updated it. As for the graphics, we’ve only seen 1 trailer, and TBH lots of games still don’t have graphics like Bf3. Reasonable graphics = standard. Great graphics = bonus.

    Frank, I will be picking up Black Ops 2, I’m fairly certain, but it’ll probably be for the 360. I play MW3 on there every so often when I need to just “not think” for a few games, but I’m really not much for dragging the “tactical” crowd down to COD level.

    I must say Black Ops 2 has peaked my interest a bit. I hear lots of rumors about improvements on zombies (hoping for a zombie campaign!), but I’m still on the fence. It would be nice to see a new engine after seeing just minor improvements to graphics for each one. ELITE has been an improvement as well. Perhaps we’ll revisit this when we have more info and videos on Black Ops 2, but I’m keeping my eye on it.

    Frank, let me say this.. I have given all COD games and All 3 MW a chance we own them all.. My sons like them. I did not, it is the same regurgitated shit over and over.. MW3 was better than BO and BO was better than MW2 some say, I do not agree. I thought MW2 was a pretty good game.. The thing is, the whole franchise is in a word is CHEAP !!! It clammers to the cxampers and the run and gun style of play. But more than that they software that decides kill or death has major flaws it always has. It relies mostly on probability, every wonder why when you’re on a streak that as you progress kills seem to come easier, well they do, in an engagement, player v. player each has a certain degree of probability to get the kill. This is dependent a huge number of factors granted but what the end result is that from a tactical stand point you should have gotten the kill but the enemy will kill you because he is this level, or has this weapon or is using this perk or that cheat whatever. I am sure most of you will agree.. Sure there is cheap shit that happens in BF3 but nothing like COD and MW… Not to mention it gets old real fast !! That is why they keep pumping out the same game twice a year now.. People just down’t seem to realize it is the same game over and over on different maps with different bells and whistles.

    I may rent it, but as fury and sparx said, it’ll probably be on xbox as i have irl friends that are unfortunately cod fans and also because i don’t want to taint my ps3 baha.

    It’s good for when you have friends over or just want to mindlessly kill but theres nothing to it, plus as rocket pointed out, the probability system does my head in so i prefer bf3 when i want a challenge.

    I appreciate that everyone wants tln everywhere, but when do we start getting spread too thin. and how big do you want tln to get?

    Endures I agree with your last post.. I mean sure if some guys want to jump onto Notbox one night and run around like mindless knuckleheads playing COD.. Well who are we to stop them.. As far as TLN branching out to COD, well we already represented in both games. COD and MW2 & 3 on PS3.. If you want to group in MW3 hit up my son Night_Viper122 and or my nephew Shooter_gt16, if you want to fool around in MW2 or Cod, hit up my other son The_Elitescrub…. But I warn you Scrubby has found a huge number of glitches and exploits on both games..

    To be honest the COD series is just going downhill…. the original series (COD1-COD3) was awesome!!! I do miss the WW2 setting, plus playing on-line required skills unlike COD4—MW3…. now you have 6-inch knives with a range of about 10 feet (WTF!!!?) people withstanding 30 freakin shots in the center of mass (torso), hackers, cheaters, noobs, etc, etc, etc…. You know what, COD ain’t so bad, but people ruin it… also, they just rush the games and never ever fix the glitches that n00bs take advantage of.

    Black Ops 2 looks ridiculous to me!!! If you like it, it’s ok I respect that… but it just looks like crap, same crappy engine, same crappy graphics…. I might only buy it to play the Zombies!!! They say it’s going to be the biggest COD Zombie game! But don’t expect me to complete the campaign mode or play on-line…

    i’m with you on this one, i’m going to borrow my Gem’s copy before i throw any money at it, and i’m mainly borrowing it to try out the MP give the campaign a run and have a little blast at zombies, but if i like the zombies, i’ll likely get it on PS3.

    I believe that frank is right: MW was good the first 2 times but the 3rd felt like 2.5, black ops on the other hand is more of a history and history repeating itself type of thing which I find extremely interesting. also metal stor sniper rifle is going to be awesome.

    i’m looking forward to see how they speed up the gameplay, i had a round on black ops earlier, and its too slow, even caspian border feels faster, and thats a slow map, if they close up the maps, make them quicker to play, (i’m talking summit [Black ops 1], Terminal [MW2/3] and Overwatch [MW3]) then it’ll be a very good game, it just needs that spark with the MP that just isn’t there at the moment, there’s no innovation except the new loadout system, which is an indirect ripoff of MAGs you have a certain number of points and use them to ‘buy’ your loadout, use too many on one thing and you can’t get something else, they’ve said you can have 3 primary weapons no attatchments but that will leave you with no points for perks or equipment, something else that needs to be done right is killstreaks. they’re the reason i play on competition or barebones a lot, i hate them, 7 kills gets you an airstrike?! sod that, 7 kills should get you a score multiplier, like MW3 did with specialist, you get to 7/8 kills every other kill gets you 200 more XP. that would work better then an airstrike.

    Guys, I know you’ve been saying that it requires no tactics whatsoever and such, but it does. If you run around like a mindless idiot (like most people do) then you’re not going to win. BUT, if you stick together, stay as a team then you will win. I played with three other friends, we communicated, stayed together and flanked, planted the bomb and won the game by doing this. Tactics make it easier, especially against mostly everyone, who don’t use tactics.

    As I’ve said before, MW3, all of it, could have been a DLC for MW2. All of it. That’s created by Infinity Ward. They suck. Treyarch, on the other hand, care. They put effort into making their games, like Black Ops was different to any other COD game in the franchise, and it will be the same with Black Ops 2.

    I just think most of you are having the wrong idea of prejudging the game before it comes out.

    You should never judge a game on its graphics. A game is meant to be played, not to be looked at.

    while true, they still need to be visually pleasing on the eye, better graphics mean that you can spot people at longer ranges, which is essential in todays FPS market, people are drawn to long range battles, earlier today on BF i took out a guy on the other side of the map with an MP7, i would not have been able to do that on anything other than my HD monitor, because i simply wouldn’t have been able to see him, graphics either help or hinder gameplay, there are games where it doesn’t matter so much (main one in my mind is mine craft) but in FPS games where you can win or lose a match by missing that one guy who’s got you in his sights its a major factor.

    ima throw in my 2 cents into this, after seeing the multiplayer trailer for black ops 2 the game lost all apeal to me =/ its the same  sytle as mw1 i dont see any inprovements to the game besides new maps and guns, and from what ive heard they brung back quick scoping which imo annoys the crap out of me take sno skill to do but then cod is just a run and gun game.

    and for the elite, for a clan to level up, those who have the premium elite can gain exp for the clan, those who dont cant level the clan.

    the only thing im going to be doing on black ops 2 is the new zombie 8 player maps which seems more interesting than the actualy multiplayer.

    I didn’t think it was possible to make this series even more cheap, now we need to add electronic cheats and kill streaks too…  It is remarkable that they had to make a game that was cheap even more so but I guess they did…

    I agree with you. Before knowing about Black Ops 2 I wondered myself if the Call of Duty series could get even worse, I guess the answer is clear, IT CAN!
