How to improve Arms Race

Black Ops II PlayStation 3

TRU11

arms race is and should be just a temporary game mode....

....we  HC players already got shafted with so little modes and now you want  them to spent more time on yet another core mode off which their are a  abundance....

...then again i dont play this crap anyway so who cares what i say lo..

It must be crap if you don't play it, right? 

Why should it be temporary?  Because you think by getting rid of it would  somehow magically mean more HC modes?  You're dreaming.

To be honest Arms Race is the only reason I play BO2 anymore,


Same here.  Love its pace.

1)  Make the score limit 100 instead of 75. The games go quickly and if you  don't go on a streak in the first minute or two you're unlikely (if you  are going for the higher streaks) to cycle through your streaks.

This would be interesting.  But it would slow down the pace. 

One thing I like about AR is I've seen less campers.  Unless you move  around a bit, you'll die.  100 kills will give campers a longer period  of time to camp until they get their streaks.


2)  The UAV should be disabled. The purpose of this gamemode is pretty much  to get high streaks but there is crazy UAV spam. I think disabling the  UAV for Arms Race would encourage people to use higher streaks rather  then UAV, HK drone and skill package. Personally I think that the UAV,  RC-XD, HK drone and skill package should all be disabled but that might  be a bit too much.

This too would be interesting.  But, again, while the UAV spammers are  annoying at times, this also helps reduce campers.  It's the only game  mode I always run Ghost (be stupid not to.)  Plus, let the spammers spam  the low streaks.  As soon as the better players get their higher ones,  they'll win the game the second half of the game.

Overall  AR has kept me playing BOII.  After playing TDM and TDM leagues for a  couple of seasons, I was getting a bit bored untiil AR came out.

i see you cared what i said lol.

i find it crap cause its to easy to get the high scores and i cant possibly see why people would enjoy getting such a high end streak so easy.

it used to meant something to get those high end streaks yet now they got a mode that makes it easier in already an easy game.

Personally i dont see the challenge in playing that mode and after a day trying it out i went back to HQ and HCDom.

Also AR is an added mode and they almost always been temporary.

I have no problem if they decide to keep it but they should not spent so much time on it because they game those who asked for it what they wanted and developers should spend their time better.

i prefer them to work on the matchmaking and connectivity but i doubt they will ever do that.

its easier to tweak AR and make people happy that way.

I get your concern on how they should spend their finite time and resources (think about the time spent for pretty camos.)  If HC was my thing, you'd be seeing me starting threads promoting it like I do for AR.

I guess it's just different expectations and preferences in type of gameplay.

For me what's the point of having the high streaks if they're hardly or never used (in TDM).  Also, it speeds up the game, lights fires under campers, and provides a number of things I prefer seeing and not seeing in a match.
