    There's always that guy....

      No matter what lobby, game mode, win or lose, anything! 

      There will always be, always! 2+ people at the bottom of the leader board with 4 - 18

       

      Seriously are people that bad? Scratch that, are that MANY people that bad?!

       

      On a side note, I've not witnessed 1 kill can this week that wasn't hip firing.

          4-18 is mild. I've had times where people went 1-23  or 4-30. I've gone into theater mode so many times to check to see if people were the killee in a boosting situation because they did so horrid only to see them just being that bad.... This game is by far the worst yet with player discrepency.

              I was playing a game of Domination on Nuketown last night and I actually felt bad for the other team. There 'top' scoring player went 12-42......I guess kudos to that person staying in the game while getting a beating like that. It almost doesn't seem fair.

                This. I mean, are they playing with their eyes shut? Or their feet? I understand not everybody is great. Heck, I'm just slightlyabove avg. but my last game of Dom there were only two of us positive (the other guy was acutally even) and the other 4 very deeply negative.

                 

                The thing is, if you don't balance killing with capping your just giving away scorestreaks. A guy that was 4-30 was only alive for 13% of the time. Not much chance of defending or contributing regardless of how many captures they may squeeze in- just giving away those points as mentioned when the other team recaptures because you're dead.

                Not everyone is serious in pub matches. Some players want gold assault shields and pstols. Challenges can cause people to negative. For some players k/d and w/l are everything, others have fun messing around and not caring. But yes, people are that bad.

                  there's always that guy...

                   

                  that is singing to himself on the mic and it sounds aweful

                   

                  thats talking to someone else in the room and you get to listen to thier conversation

                   

                  that is not paying attention to the game and keeps getting killed while spawning and sitting motionless

                   

                  that has to unload a full magazine into the air or at team mates in the begining of the round

                   

                  that likes to throw concussion nades at you from behind

                   

                  that follows you and steals your tags

                   

                  that you think is going to kill the other guy infront of you but does not see him and you both get killed

                   

                  that tries to block your view when you are sniping resulting in both of you being killed

                   

                  that randomly jumps off the map over and over

                   

                  that always skreams in the kill mic and makes you laugh at thier rage

                   

                  that tries to troll you in the post game lobby

                   

                  ahh, i love this game.

                    i sometimes go bad like this monring my first game i was 18 deaths for 1 kill i was moaning and swearing i couldnt get a kill or even pull the trigger then out of no where i got a quad and after that i was getting kills i ended the game with 22 deaths 38 kills

                    • Re: There's always that guy....

                      Let me start by saying I am one of those people that suck! I rarely end a match where my kills are higher then my deaths. However,  I try not to purposely get in someone's way and I ALWAYS play the objective. I feel that often my team wins a match because while they are all getting the highest K/D they can, I am pretty much the only one capturing and defending the objective. I read the forums and pick up tips on how to play better. I also learn what not to do. I play the challenges because I like the pretty pink guns. Most of my SMGs are pink and I am now working on the LMGs. Admittedly they are not gold because I have trouble getting the bloodthirstys needed to get them there but to me it doesn't matter. This game IS NOT my life, just something I enjoy doing. So for all the people that feel the same as I do....

                       

                      SUCKY PEOPLE UNITE!!!!

                          That's a good attitude.  I tend to go positive but I also PTO with the best of them.  So I'm that guy next to you helping to cap that flag while killing 3 or 4 of the enemy team that's approaching.  I'll take you on my team anyday over the guy that just sits back looking for easy kills to boost his kd.

                          Some people just don't get the concept of tactics. If I'm doing bad in a match I'll lockdown an area to try and turn the tide, it usually works. Caution is a tactic, running around like dead chickens is not.

                          • Re: There's always that guy....

                            Ive played 4 games straight with someone in my lobby that was in the whole game on my team and then not and so on for those 4 games and he went 0 in score. This is domination it happened in

                              Guy might be boosting, take a second and see if the guy on the other team going 45-5 is on his friends list, chances are he\she is...

                              • Re: There's always that guy....

                                Lol. I ask myself how can someone be that bad too in my team. I don't as far to see what they're doing to die but I just say they are physically and mentally challenged and should not play this game. I don't care if they do bad I just care if I'm doing good or not. All future cod games should have a rule if you don't have a kd that's even they you shouldn't be allowed to play!

                                  • Re: There's always that guy....

                                    Oh well that would exclude too much people just think about the noobies how many funny moments would you have missed without them

                                    • Re: There's always that guy....

                                      Maybe they should just take out the K/D so people can enjoy the game for what it is. People take this GAME way to seriously. It's not real the life, the numbers don't matter. And because I LIKE the game I will continue to play with my lousy .43 K/D. Besides if it wasn't for people like me then people like you wouldn't have the high K/D's you do have. So maybe you should be thanking us instead of telling us we shouldn't be allowed to play!!!

                                          I love your attitude. It's too bad more people can't/don't think this way. I'm not perfect, but I can usually tolerate quite a bit. I have friends that I play with who have low k/d ratios (mine's nothing special) but we just have fun

                                          • Re: There's always that guy....

                                            True too. Seriously though why continue to play if you kept getting owned. I see some people are very determined but you're right:) practice makes perfect. At least you try it's all that counts.

                                              • Re: There's always that guy....

                                                I continue to play because I truly enjoy playing and for the most part I can hold my own or at least feel I am contributing to a win. Plus once in blue moon I have a really awesome match like today, scored 3 longshots in the same life, got a rare (for me) bloodthirsty, ran all my scorestreaks, don't know how many doublekills and finished in the top three. So even though matches like this don't happen very often, I love it when I can kick some serious butt. LOL.

                                            That will happen with new players who don't know the map. Or their lag is just crap - i.e. the guy from Texas being paired against a team of UK'ers.

                                              After putting myself through some of these challenges, I'd say don't be too quick to judge. I have had a lot of success in this game, but in trying to finish some of these guns I have had terrible matches. I tend to still hover around the top of the scoreboard in most matches, but I have had a few where nothing seems to work for me.

                                               

                                              If it happens consistently, then yes there is an issue. But don't judge too quickly.

                                                IW/3arc have gone to great lengths to make sure that CoD is as casual a gaming experience as it can get. They have filled the game with so much "stuff" that winning means absolutely nothing now. 

                                                 

                                                Nobody should go into a match (solo) thinking/expecting to win. There will always be 1-3 people on your team doing exactly what IW/3arc want them to be doing, and that is to die ~40 times trying to get their diamond shield, etc.

                                                          People are just that bad. Played with a guy the other day on HC CTF who apparently his controller did not work or he just did not understand WTF was going on. An enemy ran right by him and grabbed flag and took off in a b line away from him. He never shot.  I was literally screaming at him to shoot and his excuse was: "I can't sprint with these joysticks"...

                                                            If you blame the other team for something because you lost. You suck and are just a poor loser.

You try making a game and tell me how it works out?  And then have millions of people playing it. Would you change a thing?   And that's the problem they do when someone complains about something from above. They should only listen to creative thinking ONLY, not complaints from someone being a poor player(loser).

                                                              Thought this was supposed to be an 18 rated game.

                                                                It used to be evenly spread out, only the good players did good, average went average & the bad did bad, now its everyone does bad & only 1 person does good.

                                                                I just don't understand how that many players are bad, its not hard, people managed in the past CODs

                                                                • Re: There's always that guy....

                                                                  just means you need to try harder.  I went 48-13 with 39 kill confirms and still lost by 10 last night.

                                                                    vims1990

                                                                    Eh, it could be that it is their first COD game or possibly giving their little brother a turn at playing the game.

                                                                     

                                                                    Let's be honest here. I'm sure back in the days, we were like them when we played our first COD game. Still getting use to the controls, finding the right setups etc.

                                                                     

                                                                    I remember when I first played COD1 on PC, it took me a while to go positive because I sucked at the game.

                                                                     

                                                                    I'll say this though. I have a bit more respect for those players.

                                                                     

                                                                    Sure, those are the type of players who are probably giving away scorestreaks to the opposing team but at least they aren't quitting unlike these so called hardcore COD players who cannot take a beating once in a while.
