There’s a new game mode being introduced in Call of Duty Warzone, but players seem more concerned with the existing ones being taken from them.

Putrid_sheepherder34 posted an explicative-laden tirade to r/CODWarzone, saying “I don’t want to play this f*****g garbage of Battle Royale minis or anything. I want to play my f*****g normal Duos with my friend, the only one we play.” Despite the copious f-bombs, they did have a point, and their thoughts were echoed by other players, such as Nice-Ad8397 who added “Today I jump on, and they’ve removed Vondel Resurgence Solos and replaced it with Ashika? WTF is this s***? Why can’t they just make all modes available at all times?”

Some users have their theories, such as Appropriate_Book8582 who says “They cater to resurgence. Why can’t BR have all game modes?” Others meanwhile, are worried that the trend for flash-in-the-pan temporary modes could see players leaving Warzone for the same reason they left multiplayer. “I left playing COD because multiplayer became so stale and repetitive. That is what DMZ, plunder and resurgence are turning Warzone into, just a bigger multiplayer respawn over and over mode. Which is fine to those who like it, but I don’t like them.”

A recent casualty of this is the removal of the cash-focused Plunder mode just a few weeks after it returned for the first time in the current version of Warzone. “Just finished a game of plunder, my mate and I both dipped for all of 5 mins to get something to drink,” began Sp4klesky. “Got back and plunder was gone. There were many Fs in the group chat”. Tarkus_8 later added “I only play Warzone because of Plunder. Fxxx me then, I guess.”

It seems as though the trend to add new game modes won’t slow down either, as a new LTE was added last night. Known as Lockdown, a new version of Hardpoint that sees players try to capture points on the map – and this seems to be the reason why Plunder has been quietly retired. It doesn’t look then, like the trend of adding and removing game modes will be slowing down any time soon. But IW should remember that especially with the Call of Duty community, you can’t please all of the people all of the time.
