Re: Death Frenzy!

Amen to that. You should see some of the 4-24 games I've had because I was the only idiot dumb enough to try taking B or the HQ, or the hardpoint, or setting/defusing the bomb....

Everyone dies more on this game because there is no spawn protection and killstreaks are easy to get and are more powerful. So are the explosives. Lets not compare our KD on this one with the other CODs because I'm pretty sure all of ours has gone lower.

I've noticed a very very large diminishing KD in many of my BO2 buds, everyone (except for a few) have dropped in the last few weeks.

I've noticed this as well, especially over the last week or so... I seem to start off matches well (for the most part), but as soon as I get killed once, its a downward spiral from there... typically 3-4 kills within 10 seconds of each respawn before I can regain my footing in the match.

I was around a 2 for kdr in the first couple of weeks.  The last two weeks have brought it down to around a 1.6... even one of my buddies who has had a kdr of well over 2 over the past 2 COD releases seems to be struggling to hover around a 1.7.  There just seem to be a lot more of those WTF deaths in this game... not due to lag or anything like that, more just spawning in others line of sight, or spawning as an enemy rounds the corner towards me, etc., etc., etc....

Exactly what I am experiencing, I began the game strong with good games and high scorestreaks now? Its a struggle to get a hunter killer drone!  YES its not lag (most of my games) its spawning.

Ditto. I can start a game 6-0 and not win a gunfight after that. Some games 20-5 some games 5-20 same lobbies same players

Well in a selfish way I at least feel good in knowing that its not only me... I was starting to think that I was just approaching the game in the wrong way -- maybe moving too quickly, not paying enough attention, etc.  I totally feel your pain my friend!

The thing that makes it even worse is that as these deaths happen, I rage, leading me to play poorly which further compounds the issue... the end result, a high death count.

I started this game with 2.57...now I'm 0.75, normal for me but I do get games with a 2.0 and then the very next game will be a 0.5...dont much care if the team wins the match I'm happy.  Im the guy that warns teammates to watch as I run for B...so they know where the enemies are that killed me in hopes they take them out and cap B for my sacrifice   I'm cool with that.

I agree the last 2 weeks have been brutal.  I run mostly solo, and play domination.  I don't care about KDR, so I'm mostly out to cap or defend flags, which causes my KDR to be low most of the time.  During the first few weeks my KDR was steadly climbing (kind of hard not to when you start out at .4).  I used to be able to go positive, get scorestreaks, and still be able help my team.  But lately its a struggle to just get a UAV.  You spawn, and someone is sitting there waiting for you.  You take 2 steps, then you are dead.  Even when you know they are there, because you respawn in the exact same spot, you can't get your gun up fast enough to take them out.  You are almost certain to take 2 or 3 deaths a match this way.  I don't remember it being this way in the beginning. I mean I would die alot, because I was constantly trying to cap a flag, but not right after spawning.

I've never dealt with such bad spawning in a video game before! Its gotten unenjoyable to get killed right after a spawn.
