Fan Attack Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Dev With Nasty Personal Comment Over Lag Issues, Is This Outrage Justified?

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Last week, one of the biggest FPS shooter of 2014 arrived on retail shelves, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. However, the launch wasn't a smooth one and as expected by Call of Duty community. Gamers reported nasty "Lag" issues and demanded Sledgehammer Games and Activision to add Dedicated Servers (which was promised just before the launch of the game via Reddit AMA), but as of yet there is no response from developer/publisher on it.

Sledgehammer Games Co-founder Glen Schofield, in a recent Q&A with fans, shed light on some details about the issues (lag and others) faced by gamers, and why it is taking so long to fix the issue.

Schofield stated that Activison is very much aware of the issues and they are hearing the demands of the community and working on it, but sadly for gamers no time-frame was issued:

"The full weight of Activision is on the issues. We hear you loud and clear and we want everybody to know we are on top of it."

When asked for clarification on: Sledgehammer Games took THREE years of development and millions of resources and $$$ were spent but still haven't been able to deliver a smooth experience with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare? Schofield issued a strange reply:

"millions of people equals millions of issues. Software is...well we're on it."

When another user asked: Whether in this three year development cycle, Sledgehammer Games didn't test their game? to this Schofield replied:

"I was trying to be nice. Of course we test and test and test...but you don't get a finished game until it's done."

Furthermore, Schofield went on to add that On-going Lag and other issues in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare are "Complicated" and require more work than simple "fix the net code" process.

"it is a complicated issue. Alot more than "fix your net code". In any event info and answers are in the works."

The nasty comments from fans didn't stop there, you can check out the STANDOUT conversation below, it's TOO HARD to describe in words: A fan lambasting Schofield with personal comment over all the on-going issues in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

After the above conversation, Schofield issued a message to Call of Duty community that development team at Sledgehammer Games accept that people are bit "Upset" but disrespecting someone for it is not justified at all.

Lastly, Schofield recommended CoD fans to play Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare single-player campaign until multiplayer issues are fixed. However the recommendation didn't go down too well and this is the response Schofield received:

"While you and staff may have poured your hearts into campaign, I do not purchase for campaign, been MP since cod mw."
