First of all, this might be a bit long so only read if you've got time.
Second, this is just my OPINION (most CoD players don't know this word) and I start to get harrased.
Third, I do think Black Ops 2 needs some work (lag, spawn).
I think, part of the problem why CoD isn't enjoyable anymore is because of the CoD Community.
Example 1: Too many people just complain about lag and always compare the latest CoD to the best one (MW, MW2, etc.)
Of course the early CoD games are the best, why? Because the community had less comparisons and the technology then, isn't the same as what it is now.
The CoD community just has a mind set that the next CoD game SHOULD be the best because of the current technology. THIS MINDSET is why most CoD players think the game is sh*t because they have such high expectations that wasn't expected. Think about it, if you had low expectations about Black Ops 2, wouldn't you be blown away by how creative and different it is? No? Okay next problem.
I will list people's problems about Black Ops 2.
- The SHOTGUNS.
Complaint: "The shotguns are too OP"
What? Did you expect shotguns to be weak at close range? Most deaths by a shotgun occur from CQC and if you do get shot from far away with a remington (KSG is an exception) that is bullsh*t, but most of the time, you get killed from close range. Why complain? Do shotguns not take "One Shot, One Kill' from a close range? Did you expect shotguns, especially a powerful shotgun like Remington, to take 2 or 3 shots?
Who to Blame? No one! You just happen to run into a guy using a shotgun. End of!
The Complaint: "Campers are everywhere, fu*k Treyarch for making the maps in favour of them"
Really? REALLY? No matter what map or what FPS game. There will always be campers. Carrier is probably the most open map in this game and I still find campers. Where? The "planes", the room, or wherever a camper decides to camp. It's just common sense to blame players for camping rather than the developers
Who to Blame? THE COD COMMUNITY! It's not the game's fault that they are campers, they made it clear that Treyarch wanted BO2 to be "camp free", it's just not working out that well for them. Blame the players themselves for camping like a b*tch.
Again this is my opinion, so if there are campers reading this, don't get all defensive. It's just my opinion.
The Complaint: "SNIPERS ALWAYS CAMP!" "FUDGING HARDSCOPER!"
You would have to be a 10 yr old to still be saying those sentences. I mean, it's common sense.
Do snipers run around the battlefield "quickscoping" everyone? Why do people call it "Hardscoping"? It's called SNIPING people! No one in the army or navy, etc. practises "quicksoping".
Snipers are supposed to "camp". I don't even think "sniping" and "camping" should be in the same sentence.
Who to Blame? Again, the CoD Community. Hey CoD Community, it's called SNIPING not HARDSCOPING.
The Complaint: "HOW DO SMGs BEAT ARs? (Shotguns, LMG etc.)" "OMG EVERYONE IS USING AN SMG!"
Treyarch did say BEFORE they released the game that Black Ops 2 will bring SMG firepower back, if the CoD Community actually payed attention to Treyarch, then you would've expected that SMGs will be eveywhere. In fact, props on the people that use SMG in this game. Why? because they are being smart, they know that most gunfights are won by SMGs and good on them for noticing that. Now, before you say I'm just an SMG user. I am not, I love using ARs on previous CoDs and I'm an AR user. I still use ARs in this game according to the maps. Yes there are maps that still support AR, you just have to know the routes. (Carrier, Express, Raid, Plaza and Standoff). But since I noticed that Black Ops 2 maps just happens to support SMG the most, I made my classes suit every type of map, not every map, but every TYPE of maps. There are only 3 types of maps anyway. (Small,Medium, Large) Obviously use AR on Large maps, anything for Medium maps and SMGs for small maps (which Black Ops 2 has a lot of). My point is, the SMGs aren't OP, STOP LOOKING FOR EXCUSES TO WHY YOU KEEP DYING. There are ways to beat an SMG user. You get killed by an SMG from long range? Not the game's fault, it just means you have bad aiming and the enemy is great at using and SMG and has great accuracy. -.-
Who to Blame? Blame yourself, you're doing bad, just accept it. Blame the CoD Community for trying to make it look like SMGs are OP because they aren't! "If you can't beat them, join them."
- Head Glitchers
The complaint: "STOP HEADGLITCHING" "HEADGLITCHING NOOB"
Now, I don't know if this is a major problem but I have seen people complain that people always "headglitch".
Again, this the community's fault for making something "noobish" when it's not. You know what I say when I get killed by a headglitcher? Good on you, you're paying attention to your environment. People, it's called TAKING COVER. Again, soldiers just don't run around with their gun killing people and regenerating. It's called paying attention to your surroundings and using the surroundings to your advantage. You get killed by a "headglitcher"? It's your fault for running around like a retard. Might as well put a sign up that says "shoot me". Now, if they were camping and headglitching, then that's whole different story but I won't get into that.
Who to Blame? The CoD Community, why am I not surprised? Dear CoD Community, this isn't a nooby thing to do so STFU.
I know there are still people in the CoD Community that are actually nice and by nice, I mean a nice attitude. Someone who doesn't make silly complaints and just accepts the game for what it is. Someone who is actually reasonable.
Now that I've explained some problems that the CoD Community have been experienced. Please, let's just focus on the actual problems which are the LAG and the SPAWN SYSTEM and stop complaining about OP sh*t because the combat balancing in this game is probably one of the best (given that the connection is fair)
Again, this is all my opinion and I hope someone, at least 1 person agrees with me.
Thank you for reading this long post. Here's a smiley face from me.
