HELLLLLL No.


lol.. I've actually had fun with it.

 

It should have been a lot better than it was with all the ideas they were given though.

 

Still.. Hardcore was better. It felt like it was finished.

 

Classic isn't half as bad as Three Team DM, Hunter or FFA

ND announced it. It's official. It's releasing in the coming weeks. 

 

 

 

Lol @ all the people getting mad. I like Mercenary Mode, there's nothing wrong with it. I just don't think it fits well with this game. In the coming months, I see this game averaging maybe 10k-15k people. That's not a whole lot compared to a lot of the games out there, and with two different modes of the same game types, I just find it kind of pointless. 

 

...and to answer some of the other questions, I do play solo quite a bit. I'm not always in parties. I know what it's like to get steamrolled and be the last man alive. But I like that. I like the challenge. Isn't that the whole point of competitive multiplayer... to be competitive? It gets boring destroying everyone over and over, and over and over.

Actually the modes with the least players in COD are the league play playlists.

 

Mercenary modes are vital to all video games. They keep people happy if they don't have friends.

 

If there are going to only be small amounts of players for mercenary then you have nothing to worry about.

 

If you play parties all the time? Well.. I guess it was fine to stomp those unpartied newbies.

 

I have nothing against newbie stomping. But we both know party vs party is fair.


You must play on Xbox then, because on PS3 the average players online is 300k, and I see maybe 500 people tops on Mercenary, because I play it sometimes myself. Trust me, I know. 


I don't even have an XBOX. It also depends what time of the day you are on it. Numbers change throughout the day.


There's still 70 - 100k people playing MW3 daily, I can't see BO2 having less than 200k daily players.

But your catastrophic effect on player pools isn't.

 

can I ask your source for TLoU player numbers?

This won't really split the player pool since the play list is still pretty small, TLOU has already sold over a million the player pool will be even bigger by the time the patch arrives.

I meant 9000 in the Mercenary playlist, that was a few weeks back though.
