Why did this get changed from a timeout to an instant kick?!?!? I used a carpet bomber run that I got from a care package and I killed my teammates and I was kicked from the game. My friends have been getting kicked from this score streak as well!! This has got to be the worst update ever. If you want to change the killing teammates, bring the voting back. This is just ridiculous
Don't use carpet bombs. Don't use any bombs, mortar strikes, or grenades unless you know without a shadow of a doubt where every one of your teammates are and will be.
Or, kill 3 of your teammates and get kicked.
Read the post scrub. It was from a care package. Emergency air drop to be exact. And considering you can't see what score streak you're calling in, it's almost impossible to tell what you're calling in. Why even post something backing up this retarded choice to add an instant kick without reading the entire post? Make yourself look stupid
So let me get this straight. From what I've been reading with all you idiot that think this 3 tk's and your out is ok. In what way is it ok? By your logic, your are saying because w are hc players we can't use HALF of the scorestreaks available to us. Wow, that makes sense. If your area playing with a full squad, then yeah, it's no big deal. People will actually listen when you say stay out of this area so you can call in your strike. But not everyone plays with full squads all the time. Playing by yourself sucks now. Nobody plays with mics, and if they do, the game chat don't work anyways. When you play by yourself, it's extremely rare to get on a team that actually listens. Most people just run around aimlessly with no care in the world. Making it impossible to enjoy the game to its full extent. Everyone saying, if you want to play hc then you need to control your fire. Shut up. That's dairy said then done, when there are people just running all over not playing as a team. You throw a grenade and your teammate run into where you clearly threw it. Sorry, but your guys logic on this is completely retarded. People don't listen or can't here you all the time when you make callouts for scorestreaks. Why should we not be able to enjoy the entire gameplay because we are HC players. And no, I will no go to core to "enjoy the whole game", I shouldn't have to. There are better ways to punish people for accidental tk then just getting the boot. It's to easy to do in hc.
The timeout was nice. Or make it ricochet after 3 kills. Or better yet, let's go back to halo 1 days and make it a vote after 3 tk's.
I'm SMH in disbelief. My only explanation is these are core players and they're used to selfish game play because there are no ramifications in core to shooting through a team mate or dropping bombs on them. Otherwise, why is it OK to carpet bomb team mates and get them killed? Sure they no longer take a death but they lose their score streaks which they worked hard to earn. I hope that not only they get kicked, they take a loss for getting tossed from the game.
As most know I've been a staunch supporter for the way HC "should" be for a long time. My view on a few things have changed over the past few COD titles for the streaks and explosives.
With so many streaks that have an area effect, and how tight some of the maps are along with how stupid the spawns can flip, the streaks need to NOT kill friendlies. There have been several times where in both this game and BO3 that I have called in a streak to an area to where ONLY the enemy was only to have my team almost instantly spawn where I just called the streak in at.
As far as explosives, it's the same way. I've been in so many lobbies where nobody has voice chat on and they run blindly right where I literally just threw a grenade to only have them get blown up by it.
Saying that you shouldn't use certain streaks in a mode just because of how the game can punish you isn't the answer. Why limit those players who can earn them and actually dumb down the game where it can be a major handicap?
If all developers could make HC the way Treyarch does with the simple implementation of no streak deaths from friendly streaks and get rid of friendly explosive deaths, HC would be PERFECT.
