Which Call of Duty maps would you want made into ‘real’ paintball arenas?
The Call of Duty XP event is turning some of the game’s maps into paintball arenas. Which ones from the series would you like to see get the same treatment?
Activision’s new Call of Duty XP event sounds, on the surface, like a pretty cool idea. A $1M prize pool, Black Ops tourney, and some of the game’s maps actually converted into things like paintball arenas and obstacle courses. Sweet, eh?
No. It’s not. All of these things sound cool, but when you really think about it, aren’t they a little, well, wasted on the Call of Duty community?
The COD community isn’t made up of people: it’s made up of whining children who think they know everything. Same with the Battlefield 3 crowd. Well, we’re the only ones who know everything around here, and so we’ve come up with an elegant solution…
Take four maps from both games, and instead of having the players of the respective franchises argue over which is better etc, simply throw them into the maps and give them real guns.
Now, we’re not suggesting that we get people to kill each other: we’re demanding it. Think of all the terrible, ill-informed arguments that clog up the internet: they’d be swept away in one day’s play.
So, the only question remains… which maps from the respective games would you want to compete on? The ones you reckon you might survive? The ones you know all the sneaky choke points on? The ones you love to camp?
Let us know and we’ll propose it to Activision. Maybe.
