Looks like their giving out double xp today. Unless you get something just for prestiging 11 times. Not sure how long it will last though so get your gaming on.

... I see what you did there...

What to do if you find yourself stuck with no hope of rescue:
Consider yourself lucky that life has been good to you so far. Alternatively, if life hasn't been good to you so far, which given your present circumstances seems to be more likely, consider yourself lucky that it won't be troubling you much longer...

I'm on my 10th prestige now and will not be doing anymore. It's old and I'm tired of unlocking proficiencies. Aside from the thermal what else is being used with the gun and what levels are they unlocked at?

Just attachments , Thermal and grip.
Thermal is like level 27 so that one takes a while but with grip you can use just about anything silencer is pretty good too.

The proficiencies have been harder for me to let go of this time around. The variable zoom scope on the L118, extended mags, shotgun damage, I'm ready to keep them all and will be adding the L86 thermal to that list as well

I say that too. And then some time later, I do it on impulse, regret immediately, and the cycle begins anew.

I said that in blops and went all the way to the last prestige but i dont have any plans to continue it now. I have to much effort into getting all the pro-perks and the guns to gold to switch now ill allready have 2 of the LMG's in gold and almost have 3-4 other guns in gold too.

We'll see.

I hope they rethink this whole entire prestige nonsense for blops 2.

Perhap free map packs for those that prestiged all the way in previous CoDs?

What better way to reward players for their dedication to CoD then give them free maps and stuff.

The tokens and prestige shop were very nice additions but tacking on another 5 levels with lame emblems and no reward for 15th was a total waste. At least throw some cool new weapon camo in for 15th or something. I don't see the value in doing this 5 more times besides, they may just add 5 more on the next DLC, then what?

Then you decide if you want to prestige more...no harm no foul. It's just a carrot for those that prefer having a goal to work towards while playing.

Why? What impact do additional prestiges have on you if you choose not to pursue them?

The tokens and bonus feel to me like they're making an otherwise silly mechanic a little more tolerable. I feel like this prestige idea was originally envisioned to be something only the very few super hardcore would ever do. But that's not how it worked out, it's totally routine. It's the lazy way out and shouldn't take the place of a proper endgame.

If they're going to continue to do it, it needs to be more about what you get for doing it, and less about what you lose. It's ridiculous that I lose the ability to create a class, or customize my reticle etc. They can come up with something better than this. It should be something Im eager to do, not something I do begrudgingly.

well stated. Its just not really worth doing in the current game state. What "Real" advantage do you get other than an extra slot and playing the game for an extra 7+ hours

For me the extra classes are the benefit. I'd like to see special weapons or gear rewarded for the final prestige. I only did 6 in blops because I had enough classes and did not want to deal with the painstaking process of unlocking tac mask again which is a must for domination IMO.

Nothing against those who want to keep things interesting by doing it but for me after 10 times I've lost interest.

Why should the hardcore players who many times are already significantly more skilled than the more casual players get handed another advantage by the developer? ? Are you trying to drive all the casual players out of the game? Because that will be the end result when they feel like the playing field is unlevel
