The new royale battle mode of Call of Duty is not very similar to its caramel-colored cousin Fortnite except one thing: the gratitude of the players for public transport. Call of Duty players: Black Ops 4 took to "thank the bus driver", a habit in Fortnite to transport them to a & Island of death almost inevitable.
Fortnite players welcomed their nameless battle bus transport for months. They wrote it in chat or shouted it in their microphones. The meme became so popular that a player named Kody Keddie wrote a Change.org petition asking the Epic Games publisher to thank the bus driver more officially. "Since I was just a kid, I always liked jumping out of the battle bus, but all this time I felt something was missing," he wrote. "And this is the ability to thank the bus driver of the battle, he or she is really a great person and provide us with great service, I think it is time to really appreciate their service, you are not Do you agree? "(The post has been canceled.)
Kotaku Game Diary
Daily Thoughts from one Kotaku staff member of a game we are playing.
End of August, Epic games delivered. Fortnite's pre-match chat box became full of players "thanking the bus driver", emote players in-game could send spam at the touch of a button. The efforts of the attendants have been rewarded many times.
Let's face it: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 does not have flying school buses or any type of airborne bus. Players travel on a fleet of military helicopters. Memes are agnostics in transport, though. In most of the Call of Duty battle games I played, players continue to thank the driver by typing "thanks to the chauffeur" in a chat next to their name just before leaving the car. ;helicopter. Cute?
What does this mean? In the face, nothing, even lol. Thinking a little more, it indicates that battle royale fans are going from game to game PlayerUnknown & # 39; s Battlegrounds Fortnite now Call of Duty & # 39; s Blackout mode- in search of the next surviving shooter.
I did it. And, before Blackout, I was dissatisfied with each of these games. At the end of 2018, a year and a half later PUBG took over the gaming world, a certain variety of gender players emerged. We just want to get our correction: a battlefield game not buggy with a good shooting and no exaggerated bells and whistles. For me, Blackout is that game. I would like to show my gratitude, but "thanks to the helicopter pilot" does not have the same ring.
