Why did they nuke the the light machine guns?

Why did the lower the ADS time and Mobility of the light machine guns? They were fine the way they were. Instead of weakening guns why don't they just fix the under-powered ones and leave the rest alone.(QSing excluded). This game hasn't played good since the last update.

     Only weapon adjustments I've read about were the MSBS and Sniper Rifle ads time/focus benefit.  Didn't see anything about LMGs.

I'm assuming you are talking about the change from bo2 to ghosts? I don't have an issue using lmgs in ghosts. The lsat is pretty strong.

All i know for sure is they are slower than they were a few days ago. I have alot of time on the game and use them most of the time. Can tell they are slower. My internet is fine. There has been abit more lag lately here and there,but not alot. Something changed.

Did you change your scope?  I've heard some scopes have different ADS times.

I'm getting the impression that he wan'ts the LMGs to function like superpowered ARs, similar to how they could be setup in Black Ops II.
