The vote is in and all of us are consumer whores, if your wondering if there will be a PA group playing at launch there will be a large number (if not all) the regular CODDUDEBROS playing (on the 360) at launch...Two months after launch though...
Its comes that time once again where we get hyped up for a game that two weeks after it releases we will loathe. The cycle continues!
Blops 2 is rumored to use a point value system for each class. Each gun, attachment, equipment, and perk is worth a certain number of points. You get to mix and match up to 10 points worth of gear. What is unique with this is you can use only a knife and a ton of perks and then grab a gun off of someone who died during the match. Think Specialist from MW3 but instead you start with all the perks active, but only have a pistol or if your feeling like a giant douchebag...only a knife.
In addition it is rumored that a "Wildcard" item will be in the game allowing you to sacrifice your Tactical equipment (Smoke, Flashbang...etc) in exchange for an additional perk or ability. Killstreaks have been replaced with pointstreaks (similar to MW3s system but a bit different)
Keeping in the COD tradition of giving us useless shit we don't need while ignoring the features that we could use BLOPS2 will introduced a Livestreaming/Shoutcasting feature so people can watch you miss your 1080wallbangclaymorefakienoscope forty six times before you hit it...LIVE!

Bots will be available in all gametypes
All game modes are customizable in Black Ops 2. Bots can be added to almost all game modes if a team needs filling out, for example. Players will also have the power to restrict content like certain attachments, perks and equipment. Interestingly, players will also be able to redesign the Pick 10 system to either a Pick 3 to Pick 17 system and anything in between. This can make for some extremely skill-based matches when weapons, perks and equipment are limited to only three slots. A slew of competitive settings and options have also been thrown in, including how FFA, TDM and CTS are scored, the ability to turn off 3rd person spectating, the ability to disable the announcer and a whole lot more.
At launch, three modes will be playable with up to three different teams within the regular assortment of playlists. These three teams can be made up of three to four players. Treyarch calls these “3×3′s” and “3X4′s.” Multi-team game modes include:
Party Games essentially replaces Wager Matches from the original Black Ops. However, players will now be able to earn XP and rank up in the regular progression. Game types include:
Sticks and Stones
One in the Chamber
Combat Training is now integrated into the main game and will include three different modes at launch.
Bootcamp – In Bootcamp, players can rank up from level 1 to level 10 while gaining full experience. This playlist is solely made up of the Team Deathmatch game mode and pits one team of humans and bots against another team of human and bots. This eases the level of expectation placed on someone who may be new to the game.
Objective – Here, players can rank past level 10, but will not earn the full amount of XP. Once again, two teams made up of both humans and bots are pitted against each other in various objective-based game modes.
Bot Stomp – No XP is earned in Bot Stomp. Quite simply, a team of humans is pitted agains a team of bots – great for practice, map knowledge, and nailing down the basics of Call of Duty.
Search And Destroy
Hardcore versions of each gametype
And yes ZOMBIES is back as a gametype. Zombies this time around will have three types:
Story Mode - Standard Zombies
Survival Mode - Hoarde Mode
Grief Mode - Two Teams vs each other, players cannot hurt each other but can "Grief" the other team with zombies, more info on Nov 13th.
The theater mode in Black Ops 2 is back and has seen some major improvements while keeping all the same tools, including the dolly cam, from previous Call of Duty’s. The new Social Features allow players to bookmark gameplays so that they can be revisited, meaning it’s now much easier to go back and search for your favorite moments after a plentiful night of games. The Meta Data has been expanded to include score, captures and defends while the robust Community Filter can help sort videos to a player’s preference. Up and down-voting is now also included for both films and screenshots.
An extremely powerful new feature, the Highlight Reel, allows players to create a film with the simple touch of a button. Simply load a game in the theater, select ‘Hightlight Reel,’ and the game instantly creates your very own montage of your most excellent moments. Settings can be customized, however, to expand or simplify the contents of your film. Further editing can be done once completed as well.
Black Ops2 will also include "CODCasting" which is an integrated streaming video feature allowing you to live stream your gameplay from your xbox so literally tens of people can watch your mediocre gameplay and constant slurs! You also will be reportedly able to "stream" footage to your PC using this, effectively giving you a PVR feature. There will also be a USB camera support (no word on if you must be connected through your PC or if its done xbox side)
You also will be given an option to Shoutcast if you do not want to livestream.
No longer is Prestige a “restart” as it was in previous Call of Duty titles. This time around, weapon experience and earned attachments are are carried over, as are all challenges.
Black Ops 2 is meant to be played all the way to prestige 10. Upon prestigeing, tokens are rewarded to the player which can then be used to unlock what ever item you want forever, including items that you have yet to reach the required level for. On top of these tokens, an additional reward can be selected. These rewards include:
New create a class slot – Up to 5 extra slots.
Stats Reset – This is a complete wipe of all stats and unlocks. This is essentially like buying the game new.
Refund – This gives back all unlock tokens a player has spent so far that prestige level. This basically allows players to re-roll or re-spec their character.
Only at prestige 10 is absolutely everything unlocked for the player.
Player Cards in Black Ops 2 is made up of these elements:
Current League Play rank.
In the emblem editor, players will have up to 32 layers to work with. Objects can be flipped, moved, rotated, scaled and copied and pasted from one layer to another. The choice of colors has been improved and RGB color mixing can also be tweaked. The emblem editor now also supports transparency.
Should you choose not to create your own emblem, default emblems will also be provided. For those willing to get creative, more complex shapes will become available upon completing specific challenges. When it comes to backgrounds, over 150 are selectable, not all of which are simple rectangular shapes.
