Don't worry UAV's don't bite. Perks just aren't as important as they used to be. Engineer is the only must have perk for me. Why would you trade an amazing pistol for a launcher anyway. I've been considering using tactician so I can carry four black hats.
edit: You're right I can only carry two black hat. But I can still overkill and carry two shotguns or two snipers with fast hands. Don't like my shotgun, here it's another shotgun. Hooray for the impractical.

1 difference though. This something that is actually a problem with the game. This is something that actually effects gameplay. It isn't some who is throwing a temper tantrum because there favorite spawn trap/camp, high kill, double xp map is gone.
Yes they are. But forcing every player to carry a launcher as the only way to truly counter them was the wrong way to fix the UAV problem. Make Ghost completely remove you from UAV. Thats it. Not the added benifit's that the other versions have.
Just got out of a match of HC TDM in which the UAV was spammed. I switched to a Rocket because the UAVs have been getting to me lately. People pre-firing around corners gets old.
EVERY TIME I went to take the rocket out and locate the UAV I was shot at or killed... including several times when I had just spawned.
That is a problem.
We have known for a while that the ghost change was going to have a negative impact on traditional hardscope snipers, especially since 99% of snipers carry a secondary pistol/gun and not a launcher simply because well, close combat happens. Personally I have always felt the UAV should be a much higher streak, but Treyarch elected to favor UAV spam, a failure in my eyes. I'm prolly not even going to bother with sniper rifles in BO2.
