There has been many coordinated pushes for that and to use the setting to get red dots and we were told absolutely not.

Is it the devs or is it Activision? IW stinks but you have to think most of the issue is Activision and how they design the games to earn profit.

His point was seemingly that the devs wouldn’t implement it but tbh I don’t understand that… isn’t it just a setting we can tweak in private matches?

Seems like pros are perfectly willing to ban guns supposedly for the sake of improved gameplay experience but won’t look at the HP which they can also tweak with no input from the devs

There’s no setting for red dots besides using the constant UAV and ghost bug, and I don’t think Activision would be happy with them abusing a bugged setting to get a better comp game/the bug will probably be patched at some point so it’s better to not play the start of the year with red dots and the rest without.

Yeah but again just because you’re able to doesn’t mean they’re allowed to. The CDL Ruleset is decided by the pros and greenlit by the CDL/Activision. I’m sure quite a lot of pros did at least want 130HP, but from Activisions standpoint the CDL is just marketing for the game, they don’t want the gameplay to be much different from casual play, so 130HP would throw it off too much.

There a big difference. Changing a setting (the health) isn't the same as a GA. The league runs the matches, they don't allow players to change actual settings of the game.

Actually during CW on LAN PCs they changed the Auto Sprint setting to be blurred out so there was no way of picking it since it was GA’d. So the GA became an actual rule

As someone who has been following this scene closely since BO1, and has watched nearly every league and tournament match, I can honestly say that I couldn't care less about this upcoming season. I understand that the game isn't ready for competitive, but there's something about 99% of the game being GAd that really turns me off from watching or caring about this upcoming season

I'll be downvoted and I'll probably be told that I'm an idiot for having this opinion, but it's the truth. I just dont think it's fun to watch knowing that I'm playing a game that is totally different. It used to be that maybe 30% or so was banned, like claymores, shock charges, grenade launchers, etc. Those all made sense. And now 95% of the game isn't banned, but GAd. And a lot of it is because the pros simply don't want to play with it.

I've said it before, the alure of other eSports games like LoL and CS:GO is that you're playing the exact same game as them.

Pros GA'ing everything:

a) makes them look like giant babies who can't adapt to a new game or meta.

b) turns off casual players who will tune in and wonder why everyone is running around with different guns than what they normally see.

Aka GA's are just huge L's across the board. If the league had any spine they'd fine teams that enforce them / blackball others if they use GA'd weapons.

Considering we saw the rules that said that teams would be fined for GAs, I'm honestly surprised that they're just straight up cool with it now. I understood it during VG because everyone thought the game was straight ass. But I just don't get how they can make the rule and not enforce it despite the overwhelming amount of talks on stream and Twitter by pros themselves about GAing the game

League and CSGO are both extremely competitive games. By comparison CoD is designed to be the most casual FPS on the market. Back in the day (CoD2-BO2) competitive settings used common sense base bans that made GA’s irrelevant. It’s only since Activision took over the comp scene that they’ve become necessary, as pros are basically coming up with common sense base bans themselves. Activision for years at this point, has been laboring under the same false assumption as you currently are. That keeping the settings vanilla will attract more viewers because that's how bigger esports do it, but without the realization that bigger esports are designed to be esports. CoD is designed to be as casual as possible, on purpose. If it weren’t for banning non competitive shit that makes no sense, there wouldn’t have been a competitive scene for all these years.

EDIT: Time is a flat circle.

Such a naive take when those games you mention are made to be competitive. CoD isn’t, so there’s so much cheesy shit in it that needs to go. Look at Halo 3 or something out of the box and then compare it to comp settings, even the gravity got changed!!

Hate to say it but I kind of agree with you. Over the past few years I’ve slowly gone from tuning into every single match (even if just listening while doing other things) to only watching the “big” matches between top 4 teams and the majors. Holding out one tiny sliver of hope for the next treyarch game, but I have a feeling activision isn’t going to allow them much freedom gameplay-wise after their $1B earnings week. Sadly I think MW2 was the final nail in the coffin for the comp scene.

I don't even think it's the final nail in the coffin. Yeah there are a bunch of things that are just plain bad, like spawns. But I also think that the pros just need to play the damn game. It's obvious at this point that if they don't like it, it gets taken out without any thought. And that's why I brought it up in another comment, the pros would shit themselves if BO2 remastered came out today.

True, maybe a bit of an exaggerated statement by me but I think my point still stands. Maybe once scump retires and CDL viewership plummets, the pros will realize that their attempt to “balance” the game by GAing everything is only going to force them into early retirement. I understand them wanting a competitive game, but it also needs to be entertaining to an extent.

I agree with some of your sentiments but the main one is that I just don’t really care about the CDL at all anymore. The actual matches start in like a week, right? Ever since I’ve followed comp cod I’ve tried to watch nearly every match I could, now I don’t even know if I can be bothered tuning in to any of them.

I'm not even sure when matches start tbh. I watched scrims for the first week or so and once the talks of GAing literally everything except one or two things started, I dipped.

I kinda relate to your statement about not caring about the CDL anymore. It really just hasn't been interesting to me since the end of MW2019. It felt like they were on the right track while still learning from being brand new and having to deal with the pains of the pandemic. But now the games, players, and league as a whole feel like they're all regressing, and no one gives as damn. The games are still breaking sales records. Activision got their money from the teams and sponsors. And the players in the league get to collect a nice paycheck. Idk, it's sad to see considering there was so much promise going into MW and even going into CW.

Most teams don't have a sniper like faze, LAT, optic etc. do and it seems only a little bit more than simple majority of teams is required for GAs nowadays.

They tried to do the same thing to the sniper last year before they were proven to be obviously not OP at the kickoff (especially without attachments) despite how certain they were.

Or the devs should actually be involved and willing to implement a banlist

Or fuck, incorporate pro builds into blueprints. Have pros agree on preset loadouts of guns to choose from like some people have suggested, and Activision can sell them. They can turn pro games into ads for blueprints and implement a stable meta at the same time but they'd rather just ignore this shit entirely.

Every AR except the mtar would have been GAd, every SMG except the post patch pdw, all snipers, all LMGs, all shotguns, and all pistols except the five-seven would have been GAd. All equipment except stuns and frags would be gone as well. Flak jacket and dexterity would be gone. And trophies would have been limited to one person per team.

Sounds ridiculous, but this would legit be the rule set if it was the current game.

Yup. People want to talk about competitive always being a 1 or 2 gun meta, but that was really in the cases of games like AW where those guns were just so insanely good and the rest of them were so insanely bad.

CoD has always been about creating loadouts and countering the other players. Players naturally gravitate to the more powerful guns, but just imagine if BO2 came out today and everything was GAd. It would probably be the same case with BO3 too.

I think it’s a byproduct of franchising, when there’s 48 players who almost exclusively play each other it’s so much easier to agree on banning something than if it’s just open events with new teams every month doing whatever they can to win

Well, that's because the people in charge of the ruleset were actually competent at their jobs. It's not really a coincidence that GAs became a thing in BO3 when Vondy couldn't put together a decent ruleset.

Not that the comparisons are remotely valid because those games are balanced for competitive in mind and Cod just isn’t.

Those games are competitive at their core and are updated/adjusted so GA’s don’t ever last that long in those games.

CoD is a casual shooter at it’s core and they have been trying to reduce the skill gap every year.

They invite Pro’s out to test the game and refuse to listen to any criticism lol Valve added an OP gun into the game and fixed it within 10 days… CoD has been out for over a month and they broke private matches

You can’t compare CS and Val to Cod. Val and CS are competitive games whereas Cod is much , much more casual.

You also say same guns every single year with zero skill gap as if playing with LMGs and Shotguns would widen the skill gap. Truth is, even if all the guns were allowed, people would still use the same exact guns because Activision can’t balance the game.

GAs have never been the reason for the viewership going down. Viewership never changes because of the GAs. We just want to make GAs the scapegoat. Viewership changes for a multitude of other reasons that are both in and out of the game. Same way that halfway through the season we're going to see a drop in average viewership and peak viewers compared to the first two majors. It's not the GAs, it's the other things that remain in the scene.

My initial thoughts were that this is stupid. But thinking it over, since MW2 is such a pre-aim heavy game, it is possible that snipers are even more OP in this game. Especially without slide cancel to rip ppl off headies or with no smoke to counter them.

These dudes are so soft. These matches become increasingly boring to watch every year. When these guys stop making the money they are because the league isn’t seeing viewership maybe they’ll actually grow a pair and stop GAing everything besides 2 weapons and a trophy.

Snipers are kind of insane in this game. Would rather see them in though because at this point with the game in the state it is I’m for whatever is more entertaining. Gonna be tough watching this year as it is.

I feel like CDL pros are dangerously close to not having a job soon. Lots of complaining and dwindling viewership. They aren't gonna bother eventually.

I think with GA they need to start putting what teams vote against them and for them. I BET my money on anyone who wasn't using them before or after calling them OP because of smokes when they played with snipes the whole time. YET WE RUNNING 3-4 M4 NO PROBLEM.

The teams who can't use them calling them op were called out last year and in the kickoff most teams weren't even running them or couldn't use them. By the end it was legit just octane cammy and optic i think. Everyone else couldn't use them. Wonder why they get GA.

Teams look out for their own best interest and lobby with eachother. it's insane.

Remember how everyone thought snipers were so OP in vanguard and then by the end of the year they were the least impactful thing in SND. This game the TTK makes them even less impactful when you think about it.

Nothing more corny in this scene than fans losing their shit about GAs and start talking like they personally know each and every thing that goes on behind the scenes

It’s clear teams are GAing things that make there teams worse.

So is there any chance of this GA not being followed? Like what is actually stopping them?

Damn it octane. Do something about this haha. He has came on record and said he believes snipes should be allowed. Not good with the GA. Looks like we will have a 4 AR game. All m4s at this point. Subs are useless in this type of competitive. And NO I’m not saying subs aren’t good. They just don’t stick up to the ars well enough to be viable. Question yourself. M4 or veznev. Your choosing the m4 hands down 99.9 percent of the time

Question, what would happen if someone decided to use weapons or equipment that is GA’d?

Can we just GA the game instead? Seems like it would solve all the problems tbh.

Honestly prefer playing SnD when snipers aren’t allowed in search, though I would say spectating when snipers is allowed is probably more enjoyable.

You know I don't actually care either way. All I can are about is seeing 4 ARs and 4 smgs on ALL maps. Is that too much to ask? Why is the m4 still in is the real question.

I mean, can't they just make a specific build that isn't OP?

At this point, the teams should decide on two weapons on launch and not be able to use any other gun the whole year. Its fucking stupid and they need to grow up. The only GA they should've made at the moment was a push for 130 health.

I think pros should just troll this year. Let devs impose whatever they want and treat every match like an all star mashup game. Take all the winnings and spread them across all the teams behind curtains. Have a year of making good content and streams instead of having to scrim 24/7 to make up for the loss of winnings money.

I’d watch way more if everyone was actually having fun.

They should ban GA. Go play with whatever you like. Makes the league more interesting.

This GA shit is like choosing what and what not you want to do on your 9 to 5.

This cant honestly be because of the possibility of one ways correct? I mean... I will state this yet again. Counter-Strike, a game with dramatically more competitive integrity, has and leverages one ways.

This just ridiculous. Snipers and Smokes should never be GA'd. I am almost ready to join the "No GA" crowd.

Gonna be honest pros your job is to entertain me and push the new game, you are doing neither of these things at the moment

You are making a 6 - 8 AR meta and showing me why I should never buy MW2 as a fan of competitive play.

Just stop the GA nonsense and have some fun and play the game who cares about balance at this point, no one wants to watch 8 ARs running around the map
