If you’ve played Call of Duty games online you know how strange of an experience the whole thing can be. We are talking about some of the worst online communities in existence just for the fact that the sheer size is so immense. There are a lot of people who play Call of Duty that are cool and respectful, but the horror stories are there and we’ve all been in a lobby with some kid spouting off crazy racist, sexist or just stupid stuff. It has made the Call of Duty community one of the more frowned-upon communities online.
Activision is looking to take a stand against this kind of stuff and has put a plan into motion where they are starting to cull the herd a bit, at least on the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, where massive bans have been reported. It, of course, has the Call of Duty community up-in-arms with players coming out and expressing their innocence only for Activision to stonewall them. Call of Duty: Ghosts is of course one of the best-selling games of the past year with tons of players online at any given time. Permanent bans on players in what is mostly a multiplayer-only game is pretty devastating for players, but seems to be the only way to clean up the filth and make it more inviting for other players.
