I don't mind, those people are fairly easy to kill. They're just incredibly annoying.

The only thing I don't like is the 5 minute timeout/ban for leaving games early. I absolutely hate joining a game where it is 6v3 almost over, or getting spawn killed.

If they are going to ban for leaving games, then there should be a option to let you join lobbies/games that have yet to start.

I would wait another 3-5 minutes to find a game that hasn't started yet rather than joining a game that is lopsided, leaving, joining another game, and then being put in the exact same game you just left.

They give you a 5 minute ban if you quit games?

You have to quit a few games in a certain time period. I'd also like to be shown your ping before the match loads along with a request to join lobbies only. I hate joining games that are lopsided and hosted in Europe.

It's not a great setup on Free-For-All Nuketown. I found that out the hard way. I guess if I picked up a gun it'd be good, but I was dead set on knife kills.

if you set your matchamking to "Best" in stead of "Any" you'll get into lobbies with the best possible connection.

To do this, once you click "Find Match" in stead of picking a game mode, click X (xbox) or Square (ps3) and change it to Best.

Youll notice a huge improvement in lag compensation and youll win a lot of the gunfights you previously thought you probably shouldve won, but didnt.

Quality post. Lots of information here to back up your theory.

TL;DR you're a ****ing idiot with absolutely nothing interesting to say.

Why are you constantly making love to a corner?

Anyways, I was bored earlier in class and this is what I came up with:

Maps: The maps are terrible. They're too big and too complex. The reason why the COD4 maps are the best maps made is due to the fact that they're simple. These new maps have too many things to climb on or into (such as boxes or crates). Every map is multi-level. You have to look up, down, and all around. How many times have you been killed from someone sitting in a window like a nerd? Every room has a million ways to enter it. There are four wall rooms with 4 doors and two windows that can all be used to enter it. All of this caters to the average player because it makes the gameplay more about being lucky than using strategy and/or gun skill.

Kill Streaks: Other than maps, this is the worst part of the game. Not just this game, but all games since COD4. The ability to choose three killstreaks from about 15 options (I'm guessing off the top of my head) is dumb. When there were three killsteaks and everyone had the same thing, it created an even playing field. They were simple. One UAV, one airstrike, and one helicopter. You could counter act the UAV, you could hide from an airstrike, and you could easily shoot down a helicopter. These kill steaks still aided the user but did not provide a crutch for that player. Again, this is how they cater the game to the average video game player.

Perks: The perks system is terrible. They have counter-acts for your counter-acts. For example, you can call in a UAV. The other team can call in a counter-UAV. Now, you can use a perk that counter-acts their counter-UAV. The ability to take two perks from each grouping is terrible. Now a player can use Lightweight, Extreme Conditioning, Ghost, and Dead Silence all at the same time! Speaking of dead silence, you have to wait until level 38 to get it. You have to wait until level 38 in a game where almost everyone uses a headset and tries to sound whore, in order to get the one perk that makes your footsteps silent. Who's bright idea was that? Lastly, they broke up certain perks so you have no choice but to use multiple perks to accomplish the same task. The perks in COD4 were simple, they allowed a player to choose three abilities which they would like to have. This again focuses the game on actual skill and shooting players.

Gameplay: The spawns are terrible. If you're playing domination your team could have B and C captured and while laying on A they will spawn the opposition just feet from you. If the maps are going to be this large, spawn the opposition away from the living players. It takes too many bullets to kill someone. In some cases it takes almost a full clip to kill a player. Some people might argue that if you don't like it, play hardcore. Well that is not a solution because hardcore damage is too high and they take many other aspects of the game out in that setting. Also, there are limited game options. The grenades and tactical grenades are highly effective on this game, but I do not mind that. However the ability to take multiples is another aid to those who cannot kill people with their gun. One of the only ways to make the gameplay worse is to add vehicles.

If you don't agree, that's fine. Heck you might be that person that they're catering the game towards. This is just my opinion. I am by no means a serious gamer or one of those MLG nerds but I happen to be good at video games when I do play them.

Uhhhh just off the top of my head Dead Silence was a high level perk in CoD4 as well. The perks are one thing I think they did well, especially getting rid of pro perks, along with ****ty perks like martyrdom, stopping power, etc.

Here is the problem, you are comparing this to CoD4. Why is that a problem when it would logically make sense to compare it to a previous game in the franchise? Because just about every game out there when compared to Numero 4 is going to seem like a pile of ****. It had a few problems that were never fixed but even considering that I'd say it's one of the best shooters to come out....ever. Compare it to everything from WaW onward and you'll probably be more pleased.

That may be so but COD4 was before the time when 90% of players were using headsets and sound whoring. In that case, it didn't matter how high of a level perk it was.

Unfortunately you're right, everything will be **** compared to COD4. However I still keep my hopes up that some time soon they will realize it and create a game comparable to COD4. However it's not going to happen at this point. They've gone too far.

I thought about doing the same but there are no other games I'd really be interested in playing. I don't play XBox enough to just go get something else at random.
