Casual players sing "Adapt to me blowing you up with a c4 clutched to my chest after i've been killed"

                              "Adapt to my stealth bomber i earned going 10-52"

                              "Adapt to my cheap scope that me kill people i would normally see"

                             

Well come to BO1 where you don't have these tools helping you...we'll see how well you adapt to my dogs hunting you down inside while my chopper is mowing down your teammates outside.

Balckops one was far too easy at times, 90% of lobbies had 3 or 4 terrible players, good players don't want that, good players like a challenge.

Sorry Everyone, but here is the cold truth:

Activision/Treyarch can care less about skilled gaming.

It's all about money. Money is made by selling as many games as possible.

The more players in the game, the more money. You don't just sell NFL jerseys for only 1 team and 1 size right? You sell the entire league for people of all sizes.

Say 100 people buy Blops1, if it only catered to 10 skilled gamers, then they would only sell 10 for Blops2... the numbers are not like that, but you get my point.

How do you expect them to sell DLC? Catering to skilled gamers? Why do you think there is lag compensation?

It's a business, not an art.

So, the guy who goes 10-52 gets a stealth bomber because he did other stuff better than killing. That keeps those players buying more games.

Don't think games should be that way? Well, go work for THQ when you get in the business.

Catering to Noobs has made COD the best selling shooter of all time.

OMG, someone gets it!

Nice to know others have a grasp on the real world. It's rare in these parts.

I hate the cheesy, 'n00by' design decisions just as much as the next guy, but I understand why they are in the games. And this title eliminated a lot of it compared to previous iterations.

Quit your QQ'ing. CoD has always been a easy to play - difficult to master scenario. Just like games like Street Fighter and etc. Move along folks - nothing to see here.

I love how "pro players" cant adapt to other things in games.

Give them an old game with 4 weapons and the call theselves Pros because it is easy to adapt to 4 weapons.

Add a dozen or so attachments to a weapon and all the pros cant adapt anymore.

A "good soldier" can adapt to any situation. Any soldier that cant adapt was never a good soldier to begin with.

Pros should be mopping the floor with these noobs, especially the noobs with the red boxes to aim at. Losing to a noob with a red box to aim at is like losing a bicycle race to a kid with training wheels.

Haha I agree man. I have even noticed that some of my clan mates and homies that I game with hate bops 2 because in previous cod games all they did in every game mode was run around killing every one and ignoring the objectives. These guys ended up on top all the time. Now a guy like like me who is not always a great shot but is good at doing the objectives can end up on top of the leader board. None of them can seem to be #1 all the time anymore and they so they say the game is for noobs and won't play anymore.

All this is just confusing and ridiculous...last time i checked COD was for the masses..and unless you are making money playng the game competetively than dont refer to yourself as a "pro"

There are good people and there are bad people and there are attachments and perks for both sides, and each attachment and perk has a counter...stop trying to use the same old setup game after game and ADAPT to how the other team is playing!!! HEnce why you get 10 Clasees!!!!

They running TF than run cold blooded...simple..

COD has the worst community ever, not everyone runs around like a chicken with there head cut off!!!
