Call Of Duty Twitter Enrages Fans With 'Historically Accurate' Post
Fans have got a lot of problems with the Call of Duty franchise. Obviously. It goes without saying, to be fair - if there's a Call of Duty game, there will be fans to hate it. From the mainline Vanguard to the battle royale spin-off Warzone, the series will always have its haters who secretly can't stop playing.
Bugs, cheaters, and cosmetics. You name it, it's been slated in the subreddits. And now, it's Call of Duty itself in the firing line, as the franchise is pretty much trolling its loyal fanbase on Twitter. Someone didn't take Social Media 101.
Call Of Duty Trolls Angry Fans On Twitter
Ever since Vanguard entered its promotional phase, the shooter boasted just how historically accurate it was - featuring an ad that included a war photographer explaining just how "real" the action of the game felt. Since then, Call of Duty seems to have fallen away from this in favour of an arcadey gameplay style along with sprinklings of silliness - and fans hate it.
Players have decried Vanguard's change in focus since launch, claiming that they'd been misled. As made apparent by a new tweet from the official Call of Duty Twitter, it doesn't look like anyone really cares.
A screenshot featuring both Godzilla and Kong from the ongoing Project Monarch event, and the recently introduced Snoop Dogg skin was posted to the Call of Duty account. If this didn't rattle you, how about a caption poking fun at calls for the game to re-adopt its dedication to historical accuracy? Would you believe it... fans are furious?
Fans Are Seething With Call Of Duty
In news that will surprise absolutely nobody, the Call of Duty community has taken to Twitter to express its rage with the franchise for ignoring their calls for the World War II shooter to try a little harder to feel like a World War II shooter.
One grumpy gamer raged, "This is what's wrong with COD today. The glory days of CoD had historically accurate themes but were still arcadey shooters to keep it fun. You are making CoD a joke to people now." Another added, "I’m all for these goofy, fortnite-like, season pass thing, but if that’s what you wanted, why did you make a ww2 shooter? Could’ve just kept supporting MW 2019 just saying..."
It's no shock that Call of Duty fans are angry about something, even something as menial as a daft promotional tweet - but props to the social media team for pressing players' buttons. They know exactly what they're doing.
