I can't be bothered with that anymore its not fun its not realistic and frankly it has sod all to do with ww2.
The fact you can play as a black woman in German uniform also raises the question if the developers actually understand WW2 hell the U.S. army still had segregation.
Despite all what you mention, COD WWII is actually kind of fun, like.. It's enjoyable mindless fun, and that "D-day in multiplayer" is really neato due to the cinematics and way the game does it, feels like a single player D-day experience packed into an Overwatch style MP game mode.. If only it could've been done on a magnified scale with historical accuracy in mind, then, and only then would it have been truly mindblowing.. 6v6 with allied AI storming the beach kills the mood a bit, that on top of quickscoping, SMGs for days, everyone and their mother using an STG, total immersion killers!
My buddies and I though.. We decided to start roleplaying when we play that 'War' gamemode lol.. We make faction specific classes, talk in horrible accents, blame gypsies for lag (because why not, we obviously don't mean it) which kinda makes it a bit more enjoyable.. For instance we almost only use ironsight (maybe slap FMJ and grip to remain competitive as it doesn't change aesthetic of the gun) Kar98 and M1 Garand unless we're creating a semi-realistic character or have a specific plan like, we need a sniper and an MG-42 team, I made up a character who's a grizzled veteran of the Eastern front who was recently transfered to the West and weilds an SVT-40 as a sort of war trophy (fuck me that sounds so lame, but it's made the game more fun for me)
It's pretty odd how many females and black people there are in the game, in the HQ where you get daily challenges n shit, you get em from this "Major Howard" fella and the first thing I said when I hopped on the game with all my friends was "there's no fucking way in hell a black man would be a Major in the army in 1944!"
But hey, it's CoD, and not just any CoD, but one of the new politically correct CoDs
