I'll give it 3 weeks until the cod fans will rip this to pieces, just like every other cod since mw2. You all will prob praise it at first though, maybe even until a patch change a gun or two.

In the beginning, almost nearly always, lag comp isn't an issue for me. As the first week passes it becomes more prevalent. I'm not sure why.

It will be interesting to see if the netcode gets better or worse with cross platform play. I know I will be setting it so that I only play against controller players (no mouse + kb) so not sure if that is going to hurt as well.

I'd like to think even cross platform between Xbox and PS will have a positive impact. More players to choose from, better matchmaking options.

The beta had SBMM, which sucked. I hope it's not in the final game.

If I understand this correctly, I can play the game tonight at 8pm CDT, my time?

On console, meanwhile, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare can also be pre-loaded, but the game isn't expected to go live until midnight, local time, October 25, unless you're in North America, where it'll launch at 6PM PT/9PM ET on October 24.

Yep, game is officially going live tonight. Hopefully by the time I get to play Friday night that everyone isn't level 200 with all the best guns.

Any reason we can't just leave our locations on New Zealand always? Or does that mess up matchmaking or billing?
I assume it would mess with billing at some point. Also I think it's NZ servers cause it's a wee bit laggy.

Tempted to get this. Didn't play much of the beta but was more of a meh experience. With my Best Buy gamerclub discount plus $10 pre-order bonus it's only like $30 in the end, plus I have Blops 4 I could trade in for another $10 or so maybe.

I want to call GameStop and say “look b**** give me my damn digital code I’ve already paid for my s***!”

Looking forward to playing tomorrow night. Got a big group that is ready to go.

Yep I could only get single player on Xbox. Even that I had to get past some errors.

The campaign looks like it's going to be good, I wish they'd let you buy just the single player portion if you don't have any interest in the MP. I know MP is COD's bread and butter but I've always enjoyed the single player experiences they've put out.

Pre-ordered this on the best buy website on tuesday and tried to pick it up tonight (website said all locations would be selling it at 9pm) but the store was closing and they said while they could see I had ordered it, the receipt had not yet generated and they couldn't sell it to me. I even asked if I could just cancel the online order and pay for it there & then and they just noped me. So lame. I wasn't too put out, just came home & played some outer worlds, but it was just an incredibly stupid situation. I'll pick it up after work today I guess...

I see cross play enable and disable but no place to disable keyboard mouse.
Yep, it is not there as far as I can tell, which is disappointing because it was supposed to be there. I was able to get into the MP and there's still no option.

I'm going to be really angry if I get matched with mouse+fb gamers. If I'm going to be forced to play that way I should have just bought the game on PC in the first place. Anyone who says it isn't a huge advantage is wrong. Rainbow Six Siege is filled with it and it is ruining the comp scene.

I was able to connect to the online part of the game this morning, not that I have time to play. I'm guessing last night's problems was everyone trying to get on at once, so it may happen again tonight.

You only get matched with people using the same input as you. So if you get into a lobby with PC players it will show them using a controller. Exception is if you purposefully join a lobby with someone using a kb/m, then it's fair game.

From what a buddy told me no Best Buy’s did a launch night. Dumb.

The only store I hate worse than Gamestop is Best Buy. I think Best Buy will be gone on another year or two. BB already went from the "have salespeople follow you everywhere and hard sell" to the "empty store" by me. They look like they are getting ready to close.

They have some computer system that basically locks everything down. They lose connectivity or some other thing and the whole store basically shuts down.
