Professional Call of Duty players at the CWL Pro League got a chance to play Black Ops 4 early, and David “Dqvee” Davies has given his opinion on the new game from what he has played so far.
Black Ops 4, set for release October 12th, is still in development but has been playable at recent events including the E3 Convention and CWL Anaheim, as Treyarch fine tunes the game ahead of launch.
There has also been a beta confirmed, and fans who have their beta code from pre-ordering the game will be expecting it to go live in the next couple of months.
But while fan and casual player’s feedback is important, perhaps even more valuable are opinions and feedback from the most elite level players, the professionals.

Many of whom have been playing CoD daily for the last six to ten years of their lives and can provide insight into the finer details of weapon balance, spawn systems and gameplay mechanics, maybe overlooked by a casual player.
Dqvee, one of the players given hands on time, sat down with Epsilon to discuss his experience on the game and the competitive side.
“Even though it’s boots on the ground, it’s a lot faster paced. The sliding is really fluid, movement altogether is pretty fluid. It was just really fun to play, everything felt fresh and new and fun and exciting.
In past Call of Duty’s, I have been a flex type player – I’d use a [SMG] and an AR some maps – and when I have a SMG on I’m quite objective oriented. When I was playing hardpoints at the studio, I was getting over two minutes in hill every hardpoint with a good amount of kills.
Who knows what it’s going to be like when the game actually comes out, I might like a different role more, but I think that role will suit me best, using a sub most maps.

Presumably, Black Ops 4 will be playable again for the Division B teams, as currently only Division A is out at the MLG Arena in Columbus, so we should get another set of opinions soon.
You can read some of what the other Division A players, including Bryan “Apathy” Zhelyazkov, Dillon “Attach” Price and Ben “Bance” Bance had to say about Black Ops 4 here.
