I've been playing call of duty since the very first came out in 2003 (I think), I've always been a huge fan but I have to say, Theres nothing in it for me anymore due to several reasons. It seems as though the makers now are just feeding the "New to FPS Shooters" players Rather than letting them learn the learning curve and listening to the other half of the community who've been loyal fans since day 1. I dont mean to rant, and i know theres a lot of other complaints being thrown around about this game, And MW3 but come on, What are the developers thinking?
Anyways, I pretty much instantly stopped playing this game about a week after the release, the same as I did MW3. After months of not playing, I finally thought I'd give it another shot yesterday and it seems as though the game has gotten worse as people have progressed in unlocking new stuff.
Killstreaks - Why award someone who put so little effort into a 7 gun killstreak, Probably camping or playing with a clan with a helicoper that will then reward them with another 10 kills they do not deserve? I ask this question, Is this a First person shooter or a game that promotes the computer to do the work for you? And mistake me if Im wrong, They havent even added a Barebones mode so pretty much every game I enter i get merked by killstreaks because my team cant hold their own.
Lethals - Im tired of joining games, Dying then spawning on top of a grenade somebody has thrown across the map randomly, This is a reoccuring problem because the maps are so small and tight, theres nowhere else for them to land. Now lets speak about bouncing betties, a majority of the community disliked claymores in Black ops 2, Because they were hard to spot when rushing and hardcore camping material for people sitting at windows in 1 entry rooms, Once again developers did not listen and invented the "Bouncing betty" that can be thrown 20 feet? and is instant kill. Im tired of having a gunfight with someone for them to just randomly throw a bouncing betty at my foot without knolage then moving an inch and it blowing me up. Not to mention nearly every body uses them, I must get killed by them 3-4 times a game.. hell yesterday I got killed by them 3 times in a row. Once again, Is this a shooter game or a "Let the computer do the work" for you game?
"Lag compensation" - Now Im not going to pretend I know a whole lot about this, But I've been told by numerous people what it is, Its annoying to put a whole clip of bullets into people and get hitmarkers everytime for them to turn around and blast you with 2-3 bullets and kill you. Then you watch the killcam and it shows that they arent even effected by your bullets at all. Again, Why punish players because people are too tight to get a decent internet connecton? Why does lag compensation even exist?
Clans - We all know clans dominate every game due to good coordination, But seriously, all i want to do, Like many other players in the community is have a nice, fair game of TDM or KK without joining a lobby full of high ranked clan members who go on to dominate you, and the rest of the solo lobby with high end killstreaks. Is this really fair? And this is pretty much every lobby I join, how about putting parties up teams against each other and let solo players play against each other more? I know theres the mercanery moshpit, But who really wants to play all those crappy game modes? Everybody loves TDM or Kill Confirmed, Maybe a Mercanery TDM like In black ops and MW3? Give the solo players a chance. It doesnt make you good to dominate a bunch of solo players.
Theres so much more that I can list, But I dont think you guys would even want to read what I've wrote so far, Let alone more.
Anyways guys, Feel free to have your say, Or flame or whatever you plan on doing on this thread, Just wanted to have my say, Im entitled to that, right?
