Two things Treyarch got right

Sometimes I b!tch about this game but I've got to give Treyarch credit where it is due. I've mentioned a couple of times that recently I've been playing W@W and Blops 1 and there are two really annoying things in those games that aren't in Blops 2

1. Second Chance. I am so glad Treyarch finally realised what a horrible perk this is.and removed it. In W@W, Second Chance was particularly annoying when stacked with Juggernoob... whoops I meant Juggernaut . In Blops 1 Second Chance returned as annoying as ever.

2. Panic knifing. Some people say that the knife is broken in Blops 2 however I see it in a completely different way. Rather than broken, I see the knife as being fixed. Today I was playing Blops 1 and was one kill away from dogs when I came across some Ghost pro + Ninja pro camper. I emptied at mag into him only to be commandoed from a 5 metres away and my controller almost went airborne. I can count on my fingers the amount of times I've been panic knifed in Blops 2.

Although Treyarch did make some mistakes in Black Ops 2, I'd rather go up against a lobby full of TF LMG users than a lobby full of Second Chance using right thumbstick warriors.

2nd change was BS lol.

dear god what did i hate that shit lol.

knife is still BS though as people  can still warp towards you while taking bullets to the chest in the proces.

i also cant knife to save my life but it might be because i use tactial layout.

I am ashamed to say I got Second Chance pro in Blops 1 because I wanted the XP. After I got it pro I didn't use it again.

Don't feel bad, i got it pro too so i had every perk pro. But i didn't stop there, I had a classed i called "Noob" which was for when i was vsing people who were playing annoying playstyles, Off memory it went something like this

Galil (Noob tube)

China lake

frag

flash

Flak jacket

Sleight of hand

Second chance

It was so people noticed i could be annoying too.

100% agree

1 - SC/FS/LS or whatever variation of the perk is outright stupid

2 - the knifing finally works.  "Panic Knifing" can no longer be done. The only way you get any sort of lunge is to have the knife equipped prior to the knife attempt (anyone who cannot see this is smoking something funny... and I wanna know who is selling it).  Any time one gets "lunged" otherwise is just seeing the effects of lag.

If I can add...

3ARC does not have any:

BS deathstreaks

Game ending/changing bombs/nukes

1:1 stacking killstreaks

Some people like to have those things in the game, but seriously, all the above either promotes camping* (to achieve said bombs) and/or silly non-"gun on gun" play (get a 5-7 kill streak going, then the killstreaks do ALL the work for you).

For these reasons, I personally feel 3ARC > IW/SH/Raven/etc...

For smoothness of graphics etc... IW > 3ARC (but BO2 is much improved over BO1, but not quite where it should be yet)

* Not saying there is no camping in 3ARC games, because camping is a playstyle and not a game feature as some seem to believe.

I have always prefered Treyarch for these reasons and Treyarch's removal of SC/LS/FS and fixing Ghost and the knife have imo showed that Treyarch are the much better developer when it comes to balancing.

I wasn't hating on the Ghost + Ninja camper for camping (although the Ghost + Ninja combo is a little bit annoying), I was just setting the scene.

Each title has its own difference from the previous, bad and good. I never try to compare simply adapt.

But yea, getting rid of second chance or deathstreaks was a good thing.
