Call of Duty Black Ops II Xbox 360

Catering to noobs has ruined Call of Duty

They should go back to the Black Ops 1 days where good players did well and bad players got stomped. Now you have crap in the game like skill based matchmaking(to make sure noobs don't get stomped too much), scopes that put giant red boxes around enemies, guns with no recoil, no sway on weapons, instant zoom in snipers with zero recoil. The reward for being a good player seems to diminishing with every new release.

You'll get no argument from me.  People that are not good should get rocked so they will get better.  We all had to do it.

They are lowering the learning curve with each new release, the learning curve for new players is so low its almost like babysitting now. In this release you don't even have to aim, just rush and spray n pray LOL. I kinda miss the old days where accuracy did matter.

I agree. The skill differential in this game is woeful.

Nothing is impressive to achieve anymore.

This is improbable. Most whiners are probably competitive with high K/Ds.

Good players will adapt but unfortunately getting good scores does not counteract the BS experienced in this game.

I did adapt to it.

I just don't like the game, or the direction COD is going.

The object of all video games is not to die.

K/D has nothing to do with it.

When the hand of the develolper is causing most of my deaths, instead of letting me play the game, it pisses me off.

When most of my deaths are from behind (unskilled spawn glitching) or in combat from 2 feet away (panic knifes).

We are still talking about NoobTubes.

They took out Noobtubes and added all this other stuff.

Yea you would think that the "good" players wouldn't start their whine with SBMM being an issue and then follow it up with the arguement that noobs should get rocked so that they will get better.  Um apparently they don't want to get better themselves by playing against players of equal talent but they think that it's good for the noobs to play against far more talented people.  The extra sad thing is that the SBMM is so broadly based that they are playing against noobs daily and still are having so much difficulty that they need to complain about it.  Maybe 3arch could create a playlist for pros to face complete noobs everyday so that they can feel better about themselves.  Oh wait they already did, it's called combat training.  Sure the pros have to use a second account and half of the players are just bots but I'm sure that their egos won't mind.
