Have no issue with Killstreaks/scorestreaks apart from in this game you get killed by your own reward. What's that about ? You work to achieve a scorestreak bonus and it wipes you out ! Thinking about it the only people who would be against scorestreaks are run arounds who by the style of play would be very lucky to attain the higher awards.
I much prefer the BO2 system over 1for1 killstreaks
Although I enjoyed MW2, the dumbest thing I have ever seen is someone getting 7 gun kills, and winning a game (I used to play DOM all the time in MW2, and nothing was more frustrating than losing a match when you were up 170-50* and someone managed to string 7 kills**)
* an example, but typical
** 7 kills = Harrier which easily got 4 kills for a Chopper Gunner which more than often led to a Nuke.
Question: Is the purpose of this thread to discuss
- which system one prefers
- the abolishment of streaks altogether
(I have seen both arguments and not sure which to respond to, so I picked one)
Picking the other:
Many people say they would like how it was (3 streaks, done)... be on the whole, if they did that, more people would be pissed that the series went backwards as opposed to the number of people who wanted it back that way. For that reason, I doubt that would ever happen (I would be very surprised if they did it)
Which don't count as Quad Feeds
I like how the streak system is and gives much more insentive to go for objectives. It can be very powerful. I once got on B in Dom and got a quad spray, then ran off after capturing and got another kill which activated VSAT. The VSAT assists got an EMP and when I triggered that it took a f*ck load of stuff out which got me Dogs. Dogs in a five kill streak. Good or bad?
I like the new system. The only thing that I miss is being able to customize my scorestreaks for each class. Removing that was a big step back in my opinion but I do like that you get credit for playing objectives now. It hasn't changed how I play because I always did play objectives but I appreciate the reward.
imo, the scorestreak system is one of the better things that this game has. I love it.
But it doesn't help people go for the objective. I think it was you G' that posted a thread about spectating and does it amaze you. Well the more I spectate in dom, the more i see players not playing the objective and/or boosters
I must be one of the unluckiest bastards because the few times i've called in a swarm i've gotten around 4 kills with it, and the same has happened with dogs. I never run the higher end streaks in this game anymore because of this in any gamemode.
On 3 separate occasions I called in Dogs and only got 2 kills from them each time. So you are not alone. I even held off on calling them in once because I realized that there was only one person left on the enemy team and I didn't want to chance a forfeit. But it didn't help. My first and only Swarm netted 15 kills but I doubt that I'll ever get that lucky again.
