Hey guys!

Black Ops 3 has been out for a while now and after a few patches and improvements the admins have decided to give it a shot for an open ladder on CG now.

The ladder can be found at: http://au.cybergamer.com/pc/blops3/ladder/

The ladder will be something different for PC: a 4v4 hardpoint ladder. We felt that with the new play style of Call of Duty that a traditional SnD ladder would not suit, so we are trying something new with it. At this stage it will just be an open ladder, and if that goes well we may look at running some tournaments or further competitions for it.

The ruleset is as below:

Ruleset


To set up the game, open your Black Ops and go:

***
Please note, you should only have to set the game up once. Once you have set it up properly, go to:
Edit Game Rules => Options (O)
Here you can click "Save" and save it under a logical name (such as CG Hardpoint).

Once you have saved it, it will be available to load by going:
Change Game Mode => Hardpoint => CG Hardpoint

You can also share these game modes with your friends, so once a host has set it up it can be shared among friends to save other hosts going through the lengthy process.
Please ensure that the designated host for your match has these rules set up BEFORE the match.

Maps
At this stage you will be able to choose from the following maps:

Aquarium
Breach
Combine
Evac
Exodus
Fringe
Havoc
Hunted
Infection
Metro
Redwood
Stronghold




Please note that the ruleset is subject to change at any time and is just a starting point. If you feel that something should be changed, added or removed, please feel free to open a support ticket. If something does change on the ruleset you will be notified in due time.

Please also note that the rules listed on the ladder page are the rules to be followed, as they may contain updates that this thread does not.

If you have any further questions feel free to open a ticket at http://au.cybergamer.com/support/

Get your friends together and have a game!

TBH I think these cod ladders would have more interest if weapon/equipment rules were relaxed.

The ruleset is open to changes; the initial one is simply designed to remove the items that are completely overpowered and unbalanced and would ruin gameplay.

Just do worlds rules. They pretty much allow everything so they don't segregate the comp and the pub community. Black Ops 3 isn't going to be serious so just play it as a fun thing with Worlds pick ban rules etc. https://community.callofduty.com/community/call_of_duty/english/esports/2015/blog/2015/11/26/official-groups-and-format-for-the-call-of-duty-world-league-pro-division-qualifying-invitational-tournament

Totally agree, back in the day (cod2/4) I prefered the minimalism of the weapons, but nowadays I couldn't care if I was playing a scrim and cunts were using red dot's n shit, I'd prefer it in bo3 considering 90% of the iron sights in the game suck dick.

Okay; so if we were to allow all attachments apart from rapid fire (since it breaks SMG's pretty bad), and sights on all weapons apart from the snipers; would this be a better option? I'm open to suggestion - i'm aware the game is a different playing style than previous COD's and so i'm open to suggestion that will make it more fun for people to play.

If the game is considered "active" enough to literally even have a ladder then why don't you and your BO3 community run PUGs and/or friendlies to test everything. (Like people used to back when COD was ACTUALLY considered active.)

I have done testing with people and now am chasing the community input. If there is not enough activity then the ladder will not continue. At this stage it is simply to cater for people that may be interested.

Haven't even played the game, but having EMP grenades allowed without having trophies allowed makes no sense. Literally useless and will have no one using them. As other people have said, the days of bare-bones Call of Duty games such as cod 2/4 are long gone and people need to succumb to the fact that these games simply won't work with those limitations. I don't necessarily think we need to copy all of the rules from console, but trying to turn this game into something its not by banning over half of the features isn't going to work. I see no downside in giving it a go when the franchise is beyond dead on PC anyway.

Only thing I would change is that allow all attachments on smg's and Ar's, apart from high caliber (due to view kick) and rapid fire (due to it breaking the smg's).

Think Nova was going under the idea of you still being able to throw nades into the hard point without all the shit getting blown up. If you allow trophies and emps everybody will just run emp nades due them having such a massive range

probably not going to play but dont see why sights need to be banned on weapons. kind of a personal preference attachment now. was banned in cod4 because the red dot sight was broken early on and it stuck as a rule.

just some things ive thought of to cater/lure in the more casual players.since thats pretty much what cod is now.

High Caliber
Dual Wield
Long Barrel
Extended Mag
Fast Mags
FMJ
Grip
Quickdraw
Rapid Fire
Stock
Laser Sight
Suppressor
Ballistics CPU

as for attachments, i dont see why you need to ban everything. again, everyone has access to use the attachments so the above dont seam that much of a problem if limited to 1.

perks ive always hated.

if enough play it, may consider it. but its still not great
