I think it was a horrible idea to change the UVA score streak to 425, it was just fine at 350. Also the lightning strike now has a slight delay before the bombs are dropped, another stupid update IMO.

I woke up to this morning's update that included raising the UAV scorestreak from 350 to 425.  It has turned into CAMPFEST.  Since there is no longer a UAV going for your team almost constantly,  the campers on Domination are laying down in their spawn.  You were able to get a UAV by capturing the first two objectives and a defense kill.  Now you can make the first two captures, make it to the other team's spawn and WALLA!  2-3 people laying down.  It's okay to defend your objective, but you look at the scoreboard, and you got killed by someone with no captures, or only the one cap at the beginning of the round.  If UAVs were still constant, then you would see the person not moving. 

Same thing in Deathmatch, it gives an incentive to camp the whole game when UAVs are a little harder to come by. 

I thought that LIMITED UAV IS FOR HARDCORE. 

So... you can't deal with them when you know they're there?

My god this game turned into Pac-man with guns.

Here's a hint, Patton.

Throw smoke... sensor nades... EMP nades... or... don't frakking rush at them.

That's my opinion but it should be yours ;-),

Good point RAN. Often times, people think they are clever for not moving. More often than not you can get a hit marker with your frag grenade from direct impact because they just don't move. Hell, I got a nuke in MW2 because I tried capping a flag, failed, and people just wouldn't leave me alone and let me go back to my side of the map. Every time they died, they got even more persistent and more careless. So in a way they were fueling my camping because I was locked in position by very bloodthirsty people. None of these people threw flashes/grenades at all.

This was always the likely outcome. Some people were just born to camp though.

I use Ghost on all my classes currently because you cant flank without it effectively plus lag comp means im 60-40 against in all 1v1s.. If there is a distinct lack of uav I might try a few diffent set-ups.

I love camping; it is a legitimate tactic and it also is fun hearing people complain about getting killed when they don't check corners.

Use your eyes instead of chasing little red dots.

IT IS NOT, a legitimate tactic. They complain because it's "cheap" and "ball-less". Check all the corners? Admit, a camper with thier crosshairs trained on a door, only has to look at one thing, maybe two at most. A player "PUSHING FORWARD" has to check at least 4 corners in a room, plus maybe 2-3 head glitch spots......who has the advantage?? DUH. It's too easy. Being in a lobby with several of these "players/campers", becomes a boring game of hide and seek. I'd back out but could face probation doing so. The best I can do is avoid those players, or camp as well. Avoid the players(wussies) but never camp myself. Although, how much can I blame the players, or you? It seems to be what Treyarch really wanted, with the way the maps were Barfed together. Cluttered like an episode of Hoarders. At least it's all good for the crouch walking everywhere/corner sitting/window glitchin' sissies!! Nice for you!

It is a legitimate tactic, you just haven't learned to adapt. Just because a person knows choke points and outguns you every time doesn't mean they are a camper; it just means they are smarter than you.

If you know where they are after they kill you once, then all you need is a grenade or a flashbang and you are in the clear. Camping has been in every videogame since the creation of online shooters, and trust me, it isn't going anywhere.

this guy actually says he wants uavs in the air constantly.... he is one of the reasons that uav was bumbed up in the first place. i don't like to run and gun, and i never have. that is mostly what this game supports though, and i think treyarch realized this and thus the changes. the smgs are way to accurate when hip fired, the uavs were used every 15 seconds, ghost only works when moving constantly, etc. my suggestion is to find another way to get your easy kills other than spamming uavs. GOOD MOVE TREYARCH! THANK YOU!

All the other call of duties...i cant remember COD4 but you need only 2 kills to get UAV running hardline...now this game seems to think you need 5 kills for it?...i never noticed any problems with the other games with UAV...they obviously fked up ghost...this game is getting run into the ground fast...

UAV was a nice reward for you and for your team for a few kills...but now you might just as well go for orbital VSAT or stop playing the game all together because of the raging campfest that is about to ensue...
