I enjoyed seeing this in my game, almost as much as the snow-covered soldiers surrounding the Christmas-light-covered Assault Shield.

I believe the intent is for them not to, after absolutely dominating the newer player, call them a worthless sack of shit whom of which their mothers didn't love because they suck so hard.

Or whatever that person feels like calling them that day.
Eh, I thought the whole thing about christmas noobs was that they didn't know the maps/didnt have perks weapons etc so obviously they were easy kills. No one I've noticed on here who talks about christmas noobs goes on about actually sending them abuse and ripping the piss out of them, that's just stupid.
I haven't played a CoD game in six or so months, but I remember, time and time again, in Black Ops, being chewed out by both my team and the other team because I used the RPK. I also remember getting chewed out by my team when I'm not playing well, which older players do quite a bit. I think Treyarch is more worried about ripping (actual abuse outisde of mics? No, but ripping on people mean-spiritedly definitely happens) than people just killing new players over and over again, because that happens with everyone who plays a new FPS online.

Well sad acts like that are quite simply arse holes and usually that sort of stuff comes from the sugar pumped young teenagers who care more about gold camo then finding an interest in girls/doing well in school or other useful career pursuing activities. Either way, a message like that simply isn't going to change shit unfortunately.

How? A pointless message by Treyarch that everyone will see when they put the game in anyways which every player is going to ignore anyways?

It's not as if people are going to go, "oh shit, he's a low level, he might be a 'christmas noob', I best let him go and not shoot him."
It's generated discussion. I wouldn't say it's pointless.

i still think their word of choice is questionable. the title of "Christmas n00bs" is a little degrading coming from a company. i mean those people are still your customers treyarch :/

Oh come on, it's not degrading at all. My friends are casual gamers and even they know what Christmas noobs are lol. Hopefully some of those noobs make their way to SnD. Would love to teach them a thing or two.

Most of the Christmas Noobs are little children anyway whose mothers wouldn't buy them the game until christmas. Most likely the reason why they suck so much is because they run around with a sniper all the time and singing some crap down the mic while they do it.

I don't agree to bullying at all. However you are either old enough and mature enough to take the abuse and play on, or a cry baby and shouldn't be playing anyway.

I got on last night and read this message and just laughed.

If treyarch knew the cod community, this is just fuel to the fire. NOOBS! He'll yeah! Everyone pull out your PDWs and MSMCs with suppressors and laser sights!


I will however be taking advantage of this as I can't for the life of me use the KSG effectively, so it can basically be boot camp.

If you want an abundance of noobs, TDM is the best mode for sure.
