Activision Is Blaming The Players For The Mess They Have Created On Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 can’t be played online anywhere in the world, and the company isn’t doing anything to help. Instead, Activision, the parent company of the best-selling game, blames the players for the mistake. Yes, you read that right. They say that the mistake was made by the players.

Even though the servers show errors like “too many players” and “please try again later,” the main idea is that the players will have to wait forever before the company even notices the problem. This problem happened right after the servers in Singapore and the United Arab Emirates were shut down in July 2022. Activision did not give any notice before shutting down those servers. So, players from South Asia and the Middle East were stuck and couldn’t play the game with low latency. Players said they were put into German servers, which are also gone now, and were getting 180ms to 250ms ping while playing the game.

An Abandoned Fanbase of a Greedy Company

The recent event has made it clear how the company would handle requests for help from players. Without a campaign mode, players are pretty much left in the dark because the error TOO MANY PLAYERS stays on the screen. Other players can’t even find a single lobby where they can play. Thousands of players all over the world are having this problem, and when they contact Activision, they get the same answer: “Please check your Internet connection,” “Please open your NAT type,” and “Please use a wired connection.” The company is saying that the problem is with the players’ connections and not with the game. Thousands of players can’t all have trouble with their internet connection at the same time, right?

Previous server locations can be seen in the photo, which are now shut down.

The team from Otakukart also tried to find out what was going on, but they got the same answer. It looks like the team at Activision wants to stay out of the spotlight and doesn’t want to fix this problem.

At the moment, for thousands of players, the game is almost nonexistent, and they are in a user-hosted lobby where their IP address is visible to users with advanced routers. And to make matters worse, Activision is still selling Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 on all platforms, including PC and consoles, even though there is no active server. Without a campaign mode, buyers would be stuck with a completely useless game that they can’t even play. Even though it’s against the law in many places to sell something that doesn’t work, Activision keeps selling the broken game for $59.99 for the regular version and $99.99 for the deluxe version.
