I just love it when people accuse other people of calling this game a CoD clone, even though even the Devs accepted the nickname of Free CoD themselves. There's not one difference between AC and CoD except for the fact that AC is an MMO. Just saying that the 2 games are different tell's me that you've probably never tried CoD or never tried AC.

Feel like you're all CoD fanboys.. Because you guys like cod you compare every fps to CoD.
CoD is just a spawn camping f*** up game with 12 year old screaming everywhere.

Even if AC was like CoD, AC is going to be more into the e-sports than CoD.
CoD hardly has a big competitive scene.
PC fps > Console.
+ AC will prob get more updates... Obviously

In CoD series best game is here just Call of Duty black ops.

Actually Alex did make a few good points. Average AC player will probably be one who hasn't come into contact with CoD multiplayer and will actually find it fresh and original-ish. Also average CoD player will have already bought the latest CoD and will probably feel nothing for the F2P version of it and will probably even rather play Arctic Combat since it actually bring at least something new unlike CoD Online.

I think Alex may be right and Arctic Combat may actually turn out more successful then Call of Duty Online.

But that will only be the first match. There are many other competitors out there. Ones that will hit a lot harder.

I also may be biased, i hate CoD and i would never pay for it and wouldn't play the free version either and I believe that the CoD cow has been milked by Activision far beyond the point of dehydration.

@alex Blacklight was developed by Zombie Studios, who made an indie shooter for Xbox Live Arcade, never made an MMO before and yet look at their new game. It's amazing. You should definitely try it if you haven't yet. Same with Tribes Ascend, and with Planetside 2 when it goes into open beta, and Firefall. But please don't go impatient for a half assed Call of Duty that's NOT a new Call of Duty. AVA is a million times better then AC, and it came out in 2009, in fact, if it was actually inspired by AVA, it wouldn't be as terrible. You can tell the minimum effort that was put into that game. It oozes unoriginality. I hate on Combat Arms and CrossFire, but those have an excuse, they're old, this was made in 2012, when F2P shooter started taking a turn for the better, but the developers of AC obviously didn't get the f*** memo. If you like it, it's fine, just know that there's much better things to go with. And I don't say it's a CoD ripoff for no reason. You can show this game to anyone and they will tell you its CoD by just looking at the gameplay. This game will compete with CoD online. Tell me this, what would win, an MMO of a very popular game brought to you by the people that brought you the initial game, or an MMO clone of a very popular game with all the features half assed, developed and published by an obscure company? And I just realized how lucky I am, I'm in the PlanetSide 2 Closed beta, I'm Russian, so I play WarFace very easily, and my name's Alex too. xD

Well BO2 is based in a sci fi environment.

What is this halo copy right?

They copy the sci fi scene which is the Halo scene.

Retards.

I beta tested Arctic Combat for a short while. It is such a shameless copy of CoD:MW. They only added some asian touches to the UI.

It's impressive how he managed to call it a "tactical shooter" without exploding.

But it is a good copy. People will surely enjoy it and have fun with it. I just won't be among them.

I'm honestly enjoy Archlord more than their other games. I played Archlord when it was run by Codemasters and was pay to play, and I continue to play while it's with Webzen.
