I always get 4 and 6 confused in Roman numerals, so I'd prefer if it were IIII. Alas I just don't use them whenever possible.

As for topic, I'm not buying it either way but despite Activision being with Blizzard for a while now, the Battlenet client always makes me think of fantasy based games, not real life war type.

Did you write IIII? How old are you? It's IV.

Roman numerals are too difficult for CoD's fanbase, so they had to go with tally marks.


Damn it. Beat me to it.

I hope this is true. I always feel compelled to own an entire series if it's on the platform. This way mentally I can be like "I'm good" and skip the PC version. I only play Blizzard's games on bnet. I plan on keeping it that way.

actually it can be both iiii or iv


Then why isn't nine on the clock written as VIIII?

the one on the clocks are roman numerals, I think what they were trying to be clever with this new release and decided to use tally marks because maybe its symbolic or something.

They're wrong roman numerals that's my point. Why does the clock list four as IIII instead of what it should be, five minus 1 depicted as IV...but at the same time they list nine correctly as ten minus one, aka IX, instead of VIIII

(Incidentally, am I the only one who hates using roman numerals? I CAN "read" them fine, but I don't understand WHY people use them in this day and age.)

That clock is wrong.

This is correct. Clock faces have had incorrect Roman numerals as an aesthetic choice for design purposes. A IIII carries more visual 'weight' to balance out the VIII of the 8'o'clock position, because IV does not take up as much space.


The weighting sounds like BS considering 11 / 1 and 5 / 7

If your referring to the one image from earlier then yeah thats totally wrong thats either made bad or some photoshop because my clock has the right thing with IV listed properly as the 4.

Or you're clueless as to the history of clockmaking as that was indeed the style for a certain period.
Yeah I got faith, but sometimes fear it just weighs too much,
