(Head Game Designer Franz Flutentaag discusses the design of BLOPS2 with Storyline Editor Billy Fleurgen)
I'm telling you, Billy, it just comes out the same. I've loaded the new multiplayer maps for BLOPS2 and they come out the same. Don't be silly, Franz, it's a new game and can't possibly be the same. I've designed the game to put a premium on accuracy, strategy, flanking, strafing and progressing. Billy, I've kept track of these '4H' fellas for over 2 years, so I've seen and I know how they operate. Every time I run a simulation of how the new maps will play, these 4Hooligans seem to mess it up. Well, Franz, what do these '4Hers' do? I'll tell you what they do, Billy, they make other players piss and whine about the game being flawed! During our test night I received over 12 complaints saying that Elite….I cant remember the actual name, they just said some elite person kept killing them before they could walk 20 feet. Apparently, these 4H'ers are like bees fighting over a spilled jar of honey every time an enemy is dropped into the map. So if they always have a full team and there are no loose ends, it's almost impossible to beat them. Almost, Franz? Well, Billy, it appears they still allow some…lemme check here….Minnesotan, to play for them. And I've seen him play. So is he good or bad, Franz? Well, Billy, from what I've seen via message boards and Skype, this Minnesota fella is one weird-ass dude. The fact that this team still lets him be a part is shocking……judging from his previous posts, I'm not sure whether or not he's…..handicapped or not. Well, he must be the wildcard then, Franz. So what happened during your simulation?…….
to be continued……………
The countdown got to 0, then everyone was off like a flash. Before I could account for everyone, one of the Elite's got a kill. Then another, and another…and 12 more. I double checked to make sure the opponents' guns were actually firing bullets- and they were. Elite…lemme check here, yes, King and Queen were running rampant and slaughtering everything they saw. I even saw King blasting the hell out of a train car, presumably for ***** and giggles. At the same time, I saw Queen empty her rounds into the sky purely so she would face the enemy will only a knife. Needless to say, after the enemy was slain she was met by….Block, something. The only thing he seemed to do was wander around looking for a place where he could get a slice of 'pie', which i guess means pizza. Lastly, there was this little tike, Chubs something, that kept bouncing around with what looked like a platter in his hand. I wasn't sure if he was on their team or a servant, until he shot at some guy for about 43 seconds before finally killing him. All in all, we might have to make this game tougher for these 4H hooligans.
