COD Points

Well, it's official. The COD currency point system that featured in the previous Treyarch game will not be returning in Black Ops 2. While speaking to NowGamer about the return of wager matches, David Vonderhaar said:
In Black Ops they were called Wager Matches, and there was the ‘gambling’ component. But those somewhat oddball, out-of-context, just kind of fun game modes are actually going to make a fairly significant return in Black Ops 2, as what we call Party Games.
He then went on to state that the currency system would no longer be involved:
Party games is how we think about that – we think about them as you and I just goofing off, having some fun in this arguably slightly silly game mode. We love making those game modes, and they’ll be a part of this game too. They just don’t have the mechanic of gambling in them in that way, because there are no CoD points.
In case you've no idea what COD points actually are: They were a currency system that allowed you to purchase weapons and attachments instead of unlocking them via leveling up. Many players disliked the system because they felt as if took the challenge away from earning weapons etc.

  4. i cannot wait until black ops 2, i enjoyed black ops 1 but the cod points took away the fun from the game in which people were not enjoying the game because gamers/people were buying they're weapons and attachments which increased they're skills against the opposite players. a variety of people would agree to my terms that cod points ruined the game and made black ops 1 not an enjoyful game

    your sincerely a satisfied call of duty fan
