    An interesting interview from Kotaku was posted earlier today which featured Treyarch’s Director of Communications John Rafacz.
    He starts by explaining Boot Camp: “There are three components to it,” he explains. “There’s a thing we call boot camp.
    “Boot Camp is a mix of human and AI players versus a mix of human and AI players for full XP credit for the first ten levels. You are actually ranking up. Beyond level 10, once you pass that threshold, you start earning half XP. Then there’s bot stomp which is just you and your buddies wailing on the AI.”
    Rafacz goes onto to discuss why Black Ops 2′s matchmaking will deliver on what they have said:
    “That’s what gave rise to the thing we’re calling league play. This is a more robust matchmaking system. On day one you start playing and after a short while it starts to rank you. This is where we start matching you with people of like skill. Hopefully someone new to the game won’t be matched up against a true master.”
    Rafacz continues on how they try to ‘control players’ from being offensive:
    “The ability to report players for offensive language, offensive emblems, all of that will be in place. There’s a certain extent to which we hope people will be able to police themselves, and there’s no way we can personally account for bad apples, so we try and give people the tools to help people help themselves.”
    “We’re trying to make sure people are focusing toward a more co-operative style of game.”

      In all honesty, it's the young kid's that are the most annoying/racist/profane on COD games. I'm definately going to stick to making party chat's rather than game lobby chat as the amount of abuse that floats about on COD is beyond a joke. It used to be competitive banter amongst a certain skill level of player's but nowaday's it is just ridiculous.

      I've heard this all before. If I dress a chimp in a dress, doesn't that still make it a chimp? They are never gonna fix the problem unless they cater to the audience that they originally made the game for. This is the problem with dumbing down games to widen the selected audience. Shame, zombies kicks butt.

      Parents need to watch what their kids are playing If I had a son or daughter that was under 17 that was playing this I bust their @$$s lol . Serious tho thats why we have the rating system for and yet underage people continuesly end up getting games that they shouldn't be able to get their hands on.But whos job is it to enforce it if the parents don't give a damn?It's not the sales clerk job to tell them to make sure theirs kids are old enough to play them.Point blank PARENTS QUIET LETTING YOUR 5-14 year old son's and daughter's play games they aren't old enough to handle.
