Yup, Hardpoint is King of the Hill. Most gamemodes are from Quake/Unreal Tournament. Even Multi Team Deathmatch is nothing new.
I'm one of those guys who didn't like mw3 at first I even started a new account to keep playing BO. But after a month or so my friends said it was better and never looked back. BO2 for me is the worst,but I keep trying. For example yesterday I played about 30 games and had over 2.88 kd but today went negative in 11 straight games. Playing with the same guys I played with day before. A couple of my friends rage quit because they were tired of it. Went back to mw3 and it was smooth. People actually die when you shoot them.
MW3 frustrated the hell out of my at the beginning. I fought through it and really enjoyed it. BO2 still frustrates the hell out of me and I can't wait for myself and Treyarch to adapt.
mw4. Im already ready for it. Or some more maps, etc. BO2 1000 times per match host migration, host dashboarding, getting shot by bullets that can turn corners, etc.
i'm not a 2.00 k/d die hard player, i play about an hour a day, and enjoy what the games offer.
to me B ops 2 is the most well rounded game since the first CD mod. warfare. plus it has a huge variety of stuff and challenges. MW 3 juggernauts were fun and a nice change of pace, but the Assassin over powered problem really did suck. it's been balanced so wel now.
lag is there , yes but it's not a god awful as most ppl say it is. relax and enjoy
Minus the lag situation and any technical shortcomings from either of MW3 or BO2, I simply prefer the game design in MW3.
I like having pro perks. I feel like I have more things armed on me when I go into a match. BO2 with the pick 10 system being so fragmented, I end up often only going with a primary because I've tried to arm myself with a portion of what I would have carried into MW3.
Custom killstreaks for each class, having Assault, Support, or Specialist killstreak options. Not only were there three different kinds of kill streak options but you can customize it per class.
The weapons feel more individualized and different. Each gun handles differently even amongst others in its class. But also using an LMG or Sniper is still relevent and can be an effective player instead of everyone running around with SMGs.
And on a personal note, I really liked Team Defender. That, I'm probably alone on.
But if I could cherry pick from all the CoDs I'd go with the pointstreak idea from BO2. That makes sense that you earn streaks by doing all sorts of functions, not just getting kills.
From MW3 I liked the killstreaks, perks, and game modes.
BO1 to me had the best maps by far.
MW2, WoW, CoD4, the connectivity was way better so it made competitiveness more interesting.
I agree with all you say 100%. I played cod4 two days ago and the connections were much better than BO2.
CoD has gone downhill connection wise.
I think I had less lag issues with MW3, but I enjoy BO2 more. I think I just have a thing for Treyarch titles over the IW ones is all. MW3 didn't really have anything that made me WANT to play where as BO2 has something that keeps me wanting more. Not sure what that is, it's just there.
