These Ops, they are black!

On Sundays @ 7pm some friends and co-workers play Black Ops (or Battlefield BC2). Anyone interested in getting in on this action?

^ I'd be interested but the time-zone difference on a Sunday night would make for a rough Monday for me :(

Friday or Saturday, I'd be into it

Are annihilation and Escalation the same maps but just for different consoles? Or is annihilation just another 5 maps over and above escalation for Xbox?

For those who have played Escalation....Is it worth the 14.99?


On another note I had a pretty funny game last night. A team from Michigan called [MICH] had threaten to come up to Canada to see how tough I am in person. They kept asking me for my address. These 5 guys were probably the mouthiest guys I have ever heard in any series of call of duty.
When my Bro and I started winning some of the games we started dishing some of their shit talk back at them. We then found out they are from the ghetto and out of the 5 of them they have averaged over 60 fights in real life and have never lost. We are now the next target. One guy said he will just hack into the sony database and get my address that way.

I'm kicking about at other times as well. That's just the one regular slot.

I'm only gonna spend the money on the new map packs (I think PS3 maps are out already) if the rest of the dudes I play/played with have them. Workdowntown, this the case?

If you're threatening to fight someone IRL based on how someone plays video games, you essentially announced your in the bottom of the gene pool, lower than in-breds. Just say the info you have on your PS3 is fake anyway. Or, block/report them.

I wonder every now and then how many different subsets of users they have on the xbox/ps3 networks with all these map packs floating around. We're up to #3 now with Annihilation...

So there's:
a) black ops no map packs
b) black ops first strike
c) black ops first strike + escalation
d) black ops escalation
e) black ops first strike + annihilation
f) black ops first strike + escalation + annihilation
g) black ops escalation + annihilation

.. that's 7 different groups who have to play separately from the others. I'm in the group that just buys all the DLC like a good little customer, I still see 400k+ playing every night, more on weekends. Just amazing. I wonder how many people are left in group a) with no DLC.

I'm betting A is the biggest group.

I'm not sure if this is right but I thought that if the group you're playing with has those packs it will be added to the map rotation and if they don't, you're left with the default map pack.

when I've played with friends if one of us doesn't have the map pack there's a warning that says none of us can play it. But I never see that if I'm rolling along as normal, I never get trapped just playing one subset or the other.

Yeah, 95% of the team got First Strike and Escalation, they'll probably be getting Annihilation too.
