This could be great news for Modern Warfare Gamers on the PS4/5 and xBox1.
While we wait for H-Hour... if it ever gets here... and with the new WW2 Battlefield V coming this Fall and with BF1 and CoD WW2 out now... both crap games in my opinion... at least we have some hope for a great new War Shooter. If MW4 includes any Clan Support with Custom User Private Servers... MW4 will be pure GOLD!
Call of Duty: WWII review—The less things change…
Stripping out years of feature creep, but doesn't have anything to replace it.

Call of Duty: WWII certainly has some interesting timing. It has the dubious duty of returning the landmark first-person series to its titular roots at a time when any game centered on fascism, nationalism, and especially Nazism …
This news from E3 is not good... but it might get better before game launch. If this doesn't get better (6 vs 6 for Clans?)... CoD WW2 won't be workable for larger online War Clans like us. Time will tell.
Call of Duty: WWII reveals a disappointing limitation for War mode
If you were expecting big-team battles, you might be a little disappointed.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare GAMEPLAY - IS IT GOOD?

Battlefield 1 looks like a BF4 remake. I have lots of issues at present. Maybe after BF1 is out for a few weeks... I could change my mind. But I have to find at a new game for SoF that has good Clan Support and good Clan controllable Private Servers. And EA/DICE seems to have left that world behind after BF3. So... we'll see.
Cod Infinite Warfare has been taking a beating on …

One Interesting BF Players View.... __________
The Blame Game BY DatRageGuy LINK TO BLOG:
It’s time to put it all out into the open. We’re pissed. We’re disappointed. We’re beyond confounded at how a company that was once so true to its player base could abandon us in one of our greatest times of need. We feel uncompensated. And if I may be completely and bluntly honest… we all sound like whining little bitches.
Let’s get something straight. Sure Battlefield 4 hasn’t been the smoothest release, and we’ve seen an extremely rapid growing amount of badly released games coming out as of late. But whose fault is it really? Do we really have any right to be mad at DICE? I know a LOT of people will disagree with me here, but the fault lies with the person staring at your monitor right now. Yes. You and I are to blame for what we rage and rant and cuss about when we come home and stay up late at night getting shot around corners. You and I are the biggest problem in the gaming community.
What do you mean we’re to blame? It isn’t our fault that these big companies release half-baked games and then they expect us to pay upwards of $60 for them.
Of course it is. Think about it. I mean seriously think about it. What is our biggest weakness? If you said “beautiful Amazonian babes” then you are absolutely… NOT CORRECT. Our biggest weakness is what we in the gaming world like to call “the HYPE train” and our own faith in the companies we buy games from. We’ve all ridden it. Don’t sit there on your high horse and say you haven’t, because you’d be lying to yourself. You see a trailer or a screenshot or even some gameplay and you think to yourself. “Holy crap man, that game looks so freaking epic!” And then before you know it you’ve pre-ordered both the base game and the season pass paying upwards of $100 for a digital download.
So don’t get me wrong here, I’m not calling you all to arms. I’m not saying “BOYCOTT DICE AND EA!” Because that isn’t the message I want to convey at all. The message I want to convey is simple. Stop giving the guys who work their butts off to give you something enjoyable crap because you made a bad decision.
“But it isn’t my fault their game isn’t good. I’m the customer, I’m always right.”
We seem to think that because we’re the ones putting money on the line that our opinion should actually matter. In the world that we live in now, that isn’t the case. Sure back in the day in those small mom and pop diners that was the case. It isn’t about making things right anymore. Now the company has one simple goal. “Make them happy any way we can.” Sure the game isn’t perfect. But with double XP and recent patches they are really striving to get that happiness factor up. It may not always seem like it, but we aren’t always meant to see behind the scenes. I know at this point a LOT of you are probably thinking ‘Yeah but the game keeps getting worse.’ and while some of that may be true (personally I don’t have any problems), I think the game is only getting better and better overall.
“Omg I wish they would stop shoving DLC down my throat and fix their stupid game!”
Stop blaming the PR guy for doing his job. He’s paid to sit there and get you on the HYPE train. That’s how marketing works. Don’t like it? Lock yourself in a closest and never come out because marketing is all around you. What good would it do to take the PR guys off their proverbial pedestals and put them into the trenches to dig deep into the game code and fix problems? We’d end up with even more problems than we already have! So let’s just calm down a little and sit back and relax. We made our bed and now we have to lie in it. To be honest, I give the DICE guys huge props. If I was on the coding team and saw some of the stuff we say about them I’d throw in the towel. “Screw this; these people don’t appreciate all the long hours and hard work we put in.” But they don’t do that. They keep on trucking as hard as they can. I’m not going to sit here and say they’re perfect. They aren’t. But they are listening to us and that is a good start.
So next time you want to throw around the blame for the condition of the game and scream about how you want your money back, just remember that you’re the one who keeps on coming back and putting your faith in the company. So ultimately you are the one with whom the blame lies. If we the consumers enable a company to half-ass their way through products, then we only have ourselves to blame.
I’d like to make a final note and say that I’m not in any way saying that DICE is not accountable for the state of the game. But we also have ourselves to blame, not just the developers.
Feel Free to agree or disagree with anything I said in the article down below in the comments. That’s the fun of opinions, we all have our own and we’re free to share it. But let’s try to keep it civil please.

This is an interesting opinion of the state BF4 is in today.... but...
and I agree with his view for the most part... and, EA and DICE are currently taking a BIG HIT with their companies stock value over these BF4 problems... looking at today's and future sales of BF games declining and with BF4 game reviews being adjusted from Higher Media Reviews... and dropped to much lower review scores as BF4, EA and DICE face what they have on their hands. Of course ACTIVISION with it's new COD Ghost shooter couldn't be more please with this outcome.
Now is not the time to let up the pressure on EA and DICE with the way BF4 plays and stands now. Back in 2011, when BF3 was released, BF3 was and interesting new game to come after Battlefield Bad Co 2... and we were all looking forward at replacing SOCOM4 and other war shooters with something we could live with. After SOCOM4 failed and Zipper went down in such a display of Fireworks... BF3 looked like the saving grace for larger organized Clans and Platoons for Team-based War Gaming.
It was not. BF3 turned into a "COD Like" war shooter to stand along side COD Black Ops and other Activision war shooters... that EA and DICE had hopes would dominate the online war gaming community. Old Socom and War Clans realized BF3 needed a lot of changes with added Clan Support... and the bitching and complaining began on EA's Battlelog and EA's Twitter sites in the Fall of 2011.
After 5 months of pressure from BF players and around March or April of 2012, EA and DICE made enough changes to BF3 and with the addition of BF3 Private Servers... we finally had something to work with. Not perfect... but doable to stick with BF3. Other online War Shooters were out there for the PC like ARMA2 and others on the PS3... but with little Clan Support. All we had was BF3. But BF3 still contains weaknesses to this day. But BF3 has reached it's end of life and may only receive minor patches, until it's servers are shut down. But many BF players have moved back to BF3... until BF4 gets fix and working.
The new BF4 has finally arrived. It's stunning to look at on the new PS4, XBone1 and the PC... but many things were "Fixed", that weren't broken from the BF3 days. And EA and DICE are fighting tooth and nail to force BF4 down our throats. Now, we have to convince EA and DICE again... we as their customers are not happy and want the playability back in BF4 and to put BF4 back on track to give Clans and Platoons a game we can work with... not just jumping into random games with kids and facing little or no real TEAMWORK, that players like SoF and other War Clans must have to keep us with Battlefield.
Pre-Game Squad-up rooms http://bit.ly/IdjgW5, BF3 type Squad mic comms need to come back or be improved, BF4 Private Servers http://bit.ly/1d9NzXr, user customized control buttons http://bit.ly/1f6WfQa, as well as many other changes need to be made.
Is EA killing Battlefield?
So... I urge all SoF members and all organized Clan members to use the BF4 Battlefield forums... and DICE's Twitter site to put on the pressure to shape BF4 into a war shooter that doesn't just stand along side COD games... but puts them to shame for real TEAMWORK base play! Maybe ACTIVISION and it's Call of Duty franchise will want to keep up and give us some other new war shooters for Clans to consider. At least we can hope!
BF4 Battlelog Page: EA and DICE seem to be paying more attention to their Battlelog pages now. But it's said the their TWITTER/FaceBook pages are read by the companies each day.
