After receiving beta feedback, ‘Call of Duty: Vanguard’ is making major changes.
Developer Sledgehammer games can now address player feedback to ensure that the World War II shooter’s launch day is as smooth as possible.
The studio has already created a list of changes that the studio will be making in response to player feedback. Sledgehammer stated that all official reports, gameplay clips, and messages had helped our developers squash bugs, improve features, and refine the maps and modes for launch.
These modifications include serious issues such as “a thorough pass” at weapon balancing and audio mixing and visibility, to more bizarre alterations. Sledgehammer, for one, has pledged to “nerf” the sun. You read that correctly.
This is not the type of thing that you would expect to find in patch notes, but it will be a welcome surprise to fans. This is a case of “nerfing” sun. Users who played the game at maximum settings reported severe vision problems. This is not ideal for PC users who already have to deal with large numbers of cheaters.
In related news, Activision has been under investigation by the United States government for its alleged toxic work environment. These lawsuits are in addition to two others filed regarding claims of sexual harassment and unfair labor practices within the company.
Activision employees filed the latest lawsuit in partnership with Communications Workers of America (CWA). The suit alleges that Activision Blizzard violated many federal labor laws by union-busting and intimidation. It is completely separate from the earlier harassment suit filed by California.
The Beta of the ‘Call of Duty Vanguard” Beta is Already Filled With Cheaters
This. This is why we cannot have nice things. Activision has been hit with many lawsuits, but the developer is still working on Vanguard, their next Call of Duty game. It makes a return to the Second World War, and multiplayer betas have been running to ensure everything is in order. Activision seems to have a problem with one thing: the lobbies seem already full of cheaters.
VGC has already reported that the beta for Call of Duty Vanguard already contains a lot of cheaters. Activision promises that it will take anti-cheat seriously, even though it isn’t the full game. The developers even released trailers, or at the very least, promo, claiming that they are chasing hackers with ban waves.
Also, we just reported that if someone is banned in Warzone, the ban will be carried over to Vanguard. This makes it more difficult for cheaters. Even so, Vanguard seems to be rife with cheaters, which is just absurd.
VGC has posted a few outrageous clips that showcase just a few of the hacks spotted on the battlefield. These hackers are bold. While I can understand Activision’s frustration at dealing with them constantly, it’s even worse for those who hope they will eventually be able to play these games without being unfairly defeated by jerks.
This is all too much. With Battlefield 2204 coming soon, I don’t think it’s surprising that many players will choose to play EA’s alternative.
‘Call Of Duty: Vanguard’ Beta Crashes Tied To Players Being Too Darn Popular
Call of Duty: Vanguard is now available to all beta players. It’s been an interesting ride, as you can see. But PC players didn’t intend for their popularity to stop the game from starting.
Fictional soldiers in special forces will be told at the end of the Second World War. It is based on pivotal people who helped win the war against the Axis. Project Phoenix is an operation to install Hitler’s successor and regain control. To stop this plan from becoming a reality, it will be up to the player to engage in historic missions.
But that’s not the main reason people go back to Call of Duty every year. The Vanguard betas have not been well received by the community so far. It’s not the weird distortion caused by certain weapons; it’s the skill-based matchmaking system manipulated by pro players. It’s not the spoilsports that are causing the game’s crash.
Your popularity is the problem. Although players have tried every solution, including a complete reinstall, to fix Vanguard‘s immediate crash, the problem is because of how many friends you have on Battle.net.
“After reducing my friend’s list to less than 220, I launched the game. It’s now working,” reported Sonosaber on Reddit. “The only reason that I believed this would work was that the game would launch. However, as soon as my friend’s list started populating, the game would crash.”
Now comes the hard decision of who will stay and who will go. It’s not hard. Although I don’t envy it, if you have more than 100 friends who you can talk to daily and keep each other up to date with their lives, I have one question: What’s it like to be the Chosen One.
Call Of Duty 2022 remains hidden while Activision and Sledgehammer Games focus on Vanguard and Mobile. However, some light has been shed about its possible setting. It will be codenamed Project Cortez and continue the storyline from Modern Warfare. Rumors suggest that it will be set up in Colombia and draw inspiration from a Harrison Ford movie.
