FPS Saturday! Black Ops II Wii U multiplayer match.

Coffee Beans
Last week, in the "FPS Friday!" post, I wrote about one reason I find Call of Duty's multiplayer addicting. I said, " big reason I often find myself staying for 'just one more battle', is how close some of the battles are."

The video below is of a Black Ops II multiplayer match, on the Raid map. You can see how my team was behind basically the entire match. We were losing by 17 points at one moment in the match , 17 points, but we kept on battling.

Here's the battle:

I have never been a fan of quitting games, just because I'm losing. As a matter of fact, I can't remember the last time I quit a match just because I (or, we) were getting dominated by the other team. This video, with last week's video, I think shows some good reasons why you should never quit in the middle of a multiplayer match if you're losing, whether that's in Call of Duty: Black Ops II or any other FPS game.

Also, if you aren't aware of it, Black Ops II on the Wii U (not sure about the other versions) is currently have a Double XP weekend in the Multi-Team mode. I haven't tried it out just yet, but I did play some regular Team Deathmatch battles last night. If you own a Wii U and have been playing Black Ops II my Nintendo Network ID is Coffees.

Do you ever quit in the middle of a multiplayer match, just because you're losing and it doesn't look like your chances of winning are very good? Or, do you stick it out and hope for the best, even if the best doesn't look like it will be a "win" at the end?

You can purchase Black Ops II from below:


  1. I always stick it out. It's still an opportunity to get some experience/money/upgrades for weapons. I do like that Black Ops II included the small exp bonus for sticking it out to boot. Honestly, I don't think I've ever quit due to losing - whether it's a sports or shooter title - anything like that. The few times I have quit, it's usually just because I misjudged how long I had to play before leaving for work in the morning - something along those lines. :P

  2. "The few times I have quit, it's usually just because I misjudged how long I had to play before leaving for work in the morning ..."
    Haha! "It's 7:30, it takes me 30 minutes to get to work, if I'm going 120mph, and I have to be there at 8:00. SURE, I have time for just one more!"

    Know what you mean, seems to happen quite often for me at night though, when I'm need that thing called sleep.

    Thanks for the comment and feedback!

  3. See, sleep never gets in the way of me finishing a match. I just go without it. :P Which is why I'm so groggy today. Something about hunting hidden treasures in Ni no Kuni until like 3:30 am... I remember when matchmaking on the PS2 for games like twisted metal and Madden first came out. I'd get so annoyed when people would quit mid-match. Back then they didn't have rankings penalties to people who quit.

  4. "Which is why I'm so groggy today."

    Uh oh, did you not have your coffee this morning either?! If you did, sounds like you could use a few more pots of it!

    Does Madden now have a good way to prevent people from quitting? Like keeping a record of it, and matching quitters up with quitters more often?
