The Call of Duty: Warzone game mode, Massive Resurgence, has seen a reduction in its maximum player count, leading to displeasure among many players. Despite several recent updates that have delighted fans, such as the return of the Fortune’s Keep and Rebirth Island maps and the kickoff of The Haunting event on October 17, not all changes have been welcomed with open arms.
Call of Duty Update
As the game continues to evolve with new events and additions, including the introduction of characters like Spawn in Season 6 and a slew of new gear and weapons, some alterations are causing discontent. The crux of the recent controversy arose from an October 18 tweet by the official Call of Duty updates account, stating the player count for Massive Resurgence games was being cut from 150 to 100. This announcement caught many off guard, especially as the patch notes released just a day earlier made no mention of such a change.
Many gamers took to the platform to voice their frustration, with high-profile Warzone player and streamer FaZe Swagg dubbing the update “the biggest L.” His sentiment seems to echo that of the broader community, as it’s challenging to spot any favorable responses to the adjustment.
However, in a follow-up several hours later, the Call of Duty team clarified that this reduction would only affect night maps during The Haunting event. While this added context, the delay in its delivery did little to soothe the fans’ annoyance. The fact that this change is temporary and limited to certain maps has led players to wonder if it was introduced to enhance the game’s performance. However, such speculations remain unconfirmed.
