There’s rumblings in the Call of Duty community again – this time relating to a controversial API change that threatens to put an end to third-party stat tracking websites.
Tracker Network’s Call of Duty website had displayed a raft of key information for players, including global leaderboards, but a recent API change meant it stopped updating with player stats. At the time of publication, it’s still down for business – with no comment from Activision or Black Ops developer Treyarch (we’ve asked).
The development hasn’t gone down well with players, and one glance at Black Ops 4’s in-game leaderboards will tell you why. The barebones offering lets you compare your stats against what’s called a “Players List”. This includes friends and recent players only. There is no global leaderboard for Black Ops 4.
