Game news “I wish Call of Duty would crash for a few years”: A former pro player gives his truth!

With an annual release rate, Call of Duty is often the target of half-fig and half-grape reviews. Sometimes, episodes are unanimous – while others receive a much less warm welcome! In short, some players are fed up, and let it be known. This is particularly the case of the ex-pro Nadeshot.
For a shooter, that’s a bit overwhelming. Often, Call of Duty is right on target, sometimes it misses its target… Take for example the latest episode, Modern Warfare 2: a billion dollars in ten days, the best launch in the history of the license! Whereas a year ago, Vanguard “didn’t live up to the expectations” of publisher Activision (not to mention gamers). Yes, from time to time, it’s a bit roller coasters, even though four studios have been taking turns for nearly twenty years to keep up the pace. So shouldn’t Call of Duty be taking a break?
A bad for a good ?
In any case, that’s (in hollow) what Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag thinks, former pro Call of Duty player and co-founder of the brand | eSports company “100 Thieves”. “As silly as it may seem, I always more or less hoped that Call of Duty would crash for a few years” explains the man here, during an episode of Nadeshot&CouRage, dedicated to “everything that is wrong” on Call of Duty.
“I really think that if they (Activision and the Call of Duty studios, editor’s note) refocused and reorganized their intentions, they would deliver one of their best games” – Nadeshot (YouTube)
As noted by Dexerto, the man is suing, saying there’s a reason Call of Duty is still so popular today. “It’s the smoothest, smoothest game, with the best camera control. No one else has been able to capture this magic”! Even though Modern Warfare 2 marked a record for the license – we often speak of Modern Warfare (2019) as the best paneat least recently… The gameplay is then at its best, with a very pleasant movement speed, moreover slightly reduced in the second opus of 2022. For his part, Nadeshot affirms “not to understand” the hatred to About COD: Modern Warfare 2.
Already on the way to 2023
It remains to be seen what Call of Duty will offer us next year… For the moment, moreover, it is not very clear. On the one hand, the well-informed Jason Schreier claims that there will be an “extension” for the Modern Warfare 2 single player campaign, when Activision evokes a “next premium version”. According to the opinions, we can understand what we want. An official announcement would be welcome.
