Black Ops II Fans: "Hey, Bring Back Nuketown...Like, NOW!"

Okay, so here's how it was supposed to work:

The popular Nuketown 2025 map in Call of Duty: Black Ops II was going to be available 24/7 throughout this past Double XP weekend. The map was part of a pre-order exclusive and after this weekend, it was going to go bye-bye. Simple, yes?

But after Treyarch took down the Nuketown 2025 playlist early Monday morning, everyone sort of freaked out...even though they had to know it was coming. Initially, studio design director David Vonderhaar posted up the following Tweet:

"Double XP weekend is official [sic] over. That means Nuketown 2025 / 24-7 is as well. I know. Right? Don't kill the messenger."

Oh, but the fans did want to kill the messenger, and there was a massive outcry for the map to return to the public playlist. So it didn't take long for Vonderhaar to acquiesce and bring the map back. It's now in a new playlist called Chaos Moshpit but for the record, it's not available constantly. Hopefully, this will be enough to appease the CoD followers, who apparently really like Nuketown.

I really REALLY dislike Treyarch. After the first Black Ops. never again. Sorry.

FYI for anyone that does care, Target's BO2 comes with Nuketown 2025 included still.

I don't understand why people hated black ops and loved modern warfare.

Black ops was the best COD yet and modern warfare 3 sucked.

Treyarch seemed to work really really hard to improve COD and they added so many features that should have been added years ago.
While modern warfare 3 was just basically a map pack...

FYI all of gamestops copies include the code as well. From my understanding the code is in all retail copies.

Firesoul-

Black Ops is the worst CoD mp, IMO. It felt like a generic MW title. It was clunky, bland, and ran like crap. Not to mention the worst unbalancing of weapons in any game, aside from the dual shotties in MW2, which thankfully they patched.

Hit detection in BO1 was off. Enjoyed the MW's much more. BO2 seems to be an improvement so far, however.

Yes Black Ops 2 is a great improvement so far. Don't enjoy the maps to much. With the next MW title I guess I'd like to see more variety, everything is so urbanized with MW3 and Black Ops 2. With black ops 2 it being in the future I can understand though.

Which do u guys think best in order: MW1, W@W, MW2, MW3, BO or BO2? Btw, Amazon on Thursday BO is going to be $15 bucks, u think I should get, sounds great not to pass it up? My cousin has BO1, played it for a while but didn't beat it and I want my own copy of the game.

MW3 is a joke compared to Black Ops 1. Especially in the competitive scene.

Underdog and bigrailer I'm sorry but what your taking as clunky hit detection is what people in the competetive scene call less aim assist.

All my friends who loved MW2 hated BO1, why, simply because they toned down the aim assist and got rid of a lot of the unbalanced perks and kill streaks. It was built with competitive in mind and on the PC it is actually incredible compared to the rest. Dedicated servers fix a lot of the lag issues that make MW2 and 3 a joke online.

The MP in BO is actually better than BO2 still. BO2 suffers from the same problems that MW2 and 3 suffered from and that is increased aim assist and hand holding.

From a completely technical standpoint BO1 was the most skillbased of all of them and why a lot of people think its still the best CoD since MW1 as far as MP goes.

MW3 on the PC was a complete and utter joke. You don't even have to aim so much as get the enemy in the center of your screen and hold the trigger down. This is becoming more obvious to me in BO2 as well. BO1 you had to aim more, and it took more shots to kill someone which raises the skill ceiling because all of the sudden headshots become more valuble instead of fast rate of fire weapons shot into the body.

Anyway I couldn't disagree more with you two. While BO2 is fun online, its like a mix between black ops and MW3 which makes it still better than any of the other MW multiplayer, but worse than the steps in the right direction they were taking BO1.

Don't believe me, look at what all the clans are using as their main weapons in BO2. 70% of the people are using the Second SMG I think it is? It has a fast rate of fire, and that is all you need because of how terrible the lag compensation is in this game. Fast ROF > everything else except for headshots.

I've been noticing this more and more as I have been doing league play. Lots of people are using the same SMGs or in general guns with low recoil and fast ROF and they just hip fire. Its plain ridiculous.

My Cod friend was more than a little pissed that his preorder Nuketown was not available in zombie mode.

The Nuketown zombies I think only came with the Hardened Edition. Not sure on this but I have it and that's the version I bought.

As much as I dislike fan outrages I don't see why the developers would go through the effort of making a map only for 2 weeks, then take it off.

I still find this alarming though. The internet is proving to give people a voice just to abuse it. While this is a minor issue, I do fear that another disgusting display of attacking Developers creative ideals like the Mass Effect fans enforced upon Bioware will happen more often.

I am not 100% sure, but how I saw it was that the map becomes one of the regular maps might be chosen in other game mode; they just took away the 24/7 all nuketown section.

Though I could be wrong

Actually Nuketown 2025 wasn't part of a pre-order exclusive from my ubdersanding. It was more of a way to get pre-orders. Why some may not have gotten it I don't know, but there is a code inside every retail box. At least that's what Gamestop says. I walked in *without* a pre-order and also got it. I asked the guy at the counter if they had any extra codes and he said that the codes inside all the cases they sell.

Either way the map is fun, but I hate small maps, so I typically don't play it.

I might add that maybe some retailers are asking for more copies with the code, maybe inflating the number of pre-orders they actually get. Maybe that's why I got one and apparently according to another post above, that Targets copies still have the code.

It was originally being marketed as pre-order bonus but then they switched it to be in all copies...basically defeated the entire purpose of even pre-ordering

Yea that's kind of what I was getting at. It sounds like it was more of a way to increase pre-orders.

I wasn't happy over that being how Nuketown is my favorite map, but both parties handled it wrong.

Nuketown is also the reason why I pre-ordered Black Ops 2.

1 - The complaints on the forums were deleted.
2 - The complainers on the forums acted very immature about it.

It's back, so I am happy.

Has anyone else noticed that the internet has been slow as hell since black ops 2 came out? It might just be because I am living in a dorm, but it is really bad.

The only games I like in the series is CoD4, and BO1.

I just like how everything flowed in both of those games especially for Search And Destroy. Still waiting on fixes for BO2, still has some issues that need to be worked out.
