Treyarch increases the penalty for friendly guys and players who end up in the middle of the match.
ICYMI, Black Ops Cold War League are “escalating combat penalties” suspensions for players who usually quit or indulge in friendly fire.
We’ve already described many of the big changes that came with the launch of Season Two Reloaded earlier this week, but Treyarch also confirmed that it’s doubling down on its efforts to curb the chaos caused by grief and players quitting.
“With the new additions of Apocalypse Hardpoint and Express S&D to the League Play rotation, we are constantly working on more ways to improve the competition experience,” the studio explained in a recent update. “We have heard the latest feedback on the Wildcard selection and agree: we want players to commit to a style of play in League Play.
“We have also added new penalties for Match Suspension for players who end up in the middle of a match or participate in a friendly fire to ensure a better competition experience for all players,” the statement continues, concluding that participants must “play well or pay the price” as “penalties will escalate with more offenses”.
