They released the first map pack for Ghosts this week. With it came the latest patch. Lots of small fixes, etc.

So I boot up the XB1 version post patch, and immediately it loads my campaign save and puts me into a mission! Hmm, ok, not sure why that happened. Guess I'll quit out of that.

Select multiplayer and away we go. Get into my first multiplayer match and soon after I notice the framerate feels less stable. Hmm, ok. Then I see a random scoring bug, where it shows points I shouldn't have gotten. Hmm. Then I get into another map and it's got even more serious framerate issues!

Quit the match and turn it off.

What a fantastic way to encourage DLC sales! Make the entire game run worse and have new bugs to coincide with the first map pack! I was going to buy the map pack tonight, but they won't be happening until this shit is fixed. Fucking ridiculous.

you expected something more from the people who brought you COD:Ghost?

it somehow simultaneously looks and performs worse then BFBC2 on PC. EDIT: a 4 year old FPS

really reinvesting those gamer's dollars is see...

Couldn't agree more. Didn't like 70 or 80% of the studio leave and go with Respawn?

I can confirm the framerate went to shit post patch on XB1. Talking sub-20 at some points.

Think of how I feel about Xbox, CoD, and framerates and then look at the above again.

Infinity Ward fucked it up, and it's awful. ��

yes definitely, but its 4 years old, thats a long long time in gaming years.

i didn't mean to pick out BFBC2 specifically, just wanted to use a "similar" game as a reference point for how lackluster this game is technically. and the fact that BFBC2 is 4 years old certainly increased the effectiveness of the comparison.

i can see how it sounds when you read it now, and how it seems like im saying "its so bad that its worse then this other thing that already stinks pretty badly", so my bad there, i put an edit.

what i was trying to say was, i can understand it running worse then BFBC2 if it looked better, or i can understand it looking worse then BFBC2 if it ran better, but what i was trying to get across was that it simultaneously looks and performs worse, and there is really no excuse for that.

I decided to play on Xbone today for the first time since launch week. I was first greeted with a black screen after the Ghost image. Went and played BF4 instead. A while later I googled the issue and it wasn't just me, it's a rampant glitch that Activision has posted a work around wherein you pull the power from the Xbone and outlet and wait three minutes which did work.

I then played a few matches and the frame rate was atrocious. A buddy of mine who really has no idea about frame rates or lag asked me if the game was really "laggy" for me as well.

Nice update IW.

I didn't notice any issues on the PS4 or 360 version.

At all.

Fixed the spawns and the new maps and aliens are fun. This makes the game much more enjoyable.

I made it to around ~30-40 but I feel the same. Such a shame, I really enjoyed the previous CoD games. I pop in Black Ops 2 once in awhile but I can't play this shit

So, your anecdotal evidence of a bad experience post-patch is IW's way of "discouraging DLC sales"?

Ok.

I at least expected some kind of known mass issue spreading around on Twitter or something.

EDIT: Don't get me wrong, there's no doubt that it sucks that you're experiencing these issues, but there is some hyperbole in that thread title.

Anecdotal, but another person has already come into the thread and confirmed what I'm seeing, but sure, maybe it's all just in our heads!

No, it really isn't. I've put a hundred hours into this game. I can easily tell when the framerate isn't as stable as it way the day before.


You're probably not going to see a mass twitter stream about these problems because the average Joe doesn't even know what a framerate is. At best some of those people probably notice it's not quite right, but don't know how to describe the problem exactly. Regardless, it's real, and it immediately discouraged my purchase of their DLC. I will not be playing the game again until this problem is resolved.

I can confirm that me and all of the people I play with are having the same problems as described here...Framerate has dropped a lot, Stonehaven, Strikezone and all of the new DLC maps seem to be the worst offenders as far as I can tell...Hope this gets fixed soon as I do enjoy the game....

You say that like DLC as it exists today is a good thing.

It's not. If I can't resell it, It's evil.

DLC feels like a trojan horse used to destroy game ownership by slowly getting gamers used to content they cannot resell, and is a twisted incentive to ship incomplete games. (ie: Titanfall has TWO DLC packs planned within 120 days of its release. Such bullshit.)

No ifs or buts. I hate DLC so much. So very, very much.

ps: none of this applies to free DLC that is not locked behind one-time activation codes.

Best alert Doc Brown or John Connor as you'll be needing a time machine back to 2005 to properly fight in the Great DLC War. Perhaps your voice will turn back the tide before it was too late!
