    If you got 24 kills, 35 confirms and 18 Deaths in KC, you should have set your scorestreaks higher.  With totals like that, there should have been at least one point where your score got high enough to hit VSAT.  Anyone who can consistently do that with low end scorestreaks set should change their streaks to something more abitious and run Hardline.  Stealth Chopper should be fairly easy to get.  VSAT should happen every couple games.   It should be worth trying.  I've gotten a few VSATs, Warthogs and Escort Drone in KC and I'm not very good at BO2.  Stealth Choppers are easier.

     

    The problem is that the guy who got all the confirms didn't set his streak rewards high enough.

    I'm sorry but Support for MW3 was the WORST idea COD ever gave us. You can go 18 and 100 and still get a Stealth Bomber to potentially win you a game you don't deserve to win? Screw that. Scorestreaks was a pretty solid idea to give us Obj players something to look forward too AND make those campy guys work harder or switch up style and play the obj as well.

     

    I do agree with you on somethings but you can't say it was a failure because it's NOT the game, it's how people play it. Scorestreaks was a genius idea.

     

    Oh yeah, show me footage of someone going 18-100 winning a game?  The best thing with Support is that it was a great tool to wum MOAB Hunters.  I'd rather play against a person gone 18-100 and get killed by a Stealth Bomber than go against a well coordinated team of six chaining EMPs.  That said, Specialist will easily be available if I get that if I can't call in killstreaks.

     

    As you say, it's how people play it.  So if people stop creaming themselves over streaks and play the objective then the Support concept would have never been required.  The fact that IW never changed it so KC required confirmed kills to get streaks etc. is a great stain on what would be some great game modes I'd enjoy.

    Typically, going for the objective makes it easier for me to get my streaks. Capture kills are the most saitisfying kills in the game.

     

    Campers now show on the leaderboards since SPM is what ranks you higher on the leaderboards.

     

    Treyarch has done everything they could do to prevent camping and have succeeded for the most part. teams will still trap and players will still stay in corners. But the smart teams and the smart players have learned that rushingand playing the objective is the easiest way to play this game and get scorestreaks.

    I agree, when I'm not playing with my clan far too often I get teammates that have the mind set of "screw the objective, I don't want to die because ill lose my score streak". who cares you're going to lose the game if you don't play the objective. I play a lot of demolition and I really don't care how many times I die, I'm going to plant the bomb to win. recently I planted the bomb 13 times in ONE round because nobody else on my team wanted to touch it, not including the defuses the previous round. COD puts too much of an emphasis on KD and not teamwork/winning. With that being said at least for demolition I still like the score streak system a lot better.

    You nailed it on the forehead.  This is exactly what I've been saying, but the forum community is too busy fapping to KDR and Optic quickscoping montages.

     

    But you have to think for a sec--this system is based on what the community wanted, so I don't blame the devs for how the Scorestreak system works.  The amount of slayers in COD outnumber the objective player ten to one, so it's no surprise.  I also find it ironic--despite the people who complain about Call of Duty being the "Same Game" every year, the majority wants a reward system similar to COD4--some even want the 3-5-7 system back again.

     

    Look, when I play a game full of friends (just yesterday during the clan op), I was getting VSATs WHILE running around pursuing objectives. Just because I'm skilled and earn my scorestreaks, does NOT make the system perfect.  I understand this, but it's the rest of the community that doesn't.

    True, It's annoying how you are at more risk from capturing or trying to capture a flag when if you kill someone there is not as much chance of you dying but sure you may earn less points but think of it like this.

     

    20 Kills in domination = 1000 points or 2000 (can't remember)

    Captures in domination = around 250 points, AND you may die more often.

    Which means the person with 10-20 kills still gets more scorestreaks while you still have a chance of yours resetting.

    I think Scorestreaks are great, it may not be 100% perfect but it's still a major improvement on previous COD's Killstreak systems.

     

    I get the feeling that the COD community gets fussier and fussier. Just enjoy the game!

    When they say kill streak or point streak or score streak, they mean STREAK, and streaks are meant to be ended. A death will end your streak. Makes perfect sense to me. If you can't get over that, run lower rewards. I run UAV, Hellstorm, and Lightning Strike.

     

    Also, I was wonderinig if they could implement a system in which the score from objective-based actions carry on to the next life. If a player caps A Dom neutral (50), kills a player (50), and caps B Dom neutral (200), they should get to keep 250 of the 300 score onto the next life.

    Sorry to bump an old post, but i would like add something else.

     

    The Scorestreak System also fails because of how it limits variety.  Oh sure you will have skilled players who will often earn their VSATs and Swarms and what not, but that's only 10% of the community.  Do you know what the other 90% are using?  UAV, Hunter Killer, Care Package.

     

    Every match, all I hear is, "Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, Hostile UAV above, "

    I literally have over 2000 Blackout Medals (destroyed an enemy UAV), and I bet it will reach 1,000,000 by the end of this year.

     

    The reason is due to the fact that since everything resets, in addition to good scorestreaks costing so much.  Since the community are not able to earn a high score due to a lack of set skill, they will resort to the lower streaks just to make them feel better.  But it's not always the lack of skill.  It's also the PTFO objective player who can't earn rewards due to their constant deaths because of the nooby slayers who are too lazy to pursue objectives.

     

    At this point, I would rather Call of Duty go back to the Point Streak system.  At least there was more variety! 

     

    Again, this system would solve everything  http://community.callofduty.com/message/413822425#413822425
