i made a commitment about a month ago to get my k/d ratio up from .78 - had a 2k difference at that point. right now, i'm sitting at .95 with something in the area of 15,800/16,600 . . . only about 800 more to go.
i've worked through this whole prestige level - and most of the catch-up, with the m4, red dot, stopping power and deep penetration. pretty standard, but i also feel like i've learned the maps and general strategy a lot better this way. i just started using the silencer (finished out my m16) and ACOG this past weekend, and had quite a lot of fun with those combinations, so i'll probably use them quite a bit more.
one thing i have noticed is that there seems to be a LOT of players who seem to be enjoy "hiding" - not necessarily camping - but moreso they'll see an enemy run right past them, and they don't move, don't engage in the fight, whatever. i can see the person moving around in position or whatever, so they aren't paused . . . i dunno, just seems to be happening a LOT lately.
also - jumping. i understand it's a halo thing . . . but seriously? i see these players kangarooing all over the place . . .
also, seems that no one is interested in actually playing with a team dynamic much these days. i will stick in a room of players that are either well above or well below my comfort level if they are talking and working together. i've even gone so far as to track some down if the room closes or something similar.
i was disappointed to finally read confirmation from inifinity ward that there would be no new maps or playlists for cod4. knowing that they are probably already working on mw2, it's understandable - but i also wonder how much of this is activision enacting a "no-compete" between treyarch and infinity ward . . . i can only imagine the number of people who would have spent $10 on a 6-map pack for cod4 instead of going out and buying WaW.
i just went over 7.5 days of online play this past weekend, and, despite taking full advantage of a good haul at a buy 2, get 1 free sale about a month ago, this game still consumes my playing time.
