Some of these decisions just seem insane to me, total 180 from blops.
Instead of finding a way to make prestige more worthwhile, they found a way to make not prestiging less fun. "Having fun with all that gear? Got your classes tweaked just the way you want them? What's that, you want the other 20% of stuff too? No! Lose it all, start over!"
They went from the super flexible system of cod points, where you could almost immediately begin to outfit classes exactly how you wanted them....essentially to the old system where gear/perks are locked away at higher levels, except this time, you might not even be able to have it all. This doesn't encourage experimentation, it discourages it.
This 10 point system isn't any more flexible either - its more rigid. You have to grease the wheels with wasted points just to rearrange things as you please. Then what's even the point? You can make less powerful one trick pony classes to impress your bros?
Been a while since you've been raped by a team running sr-71s, chopper gunners and dogs? Don't worry, that's back. ( I know some of you here will love this.
) And they stack in crazy ways too. Someone gets a kill while your SR-71 is up? Points! What's that, you want me to take the objective and break my precious streak? No way!
It's like the basically threw flexibility and balance out the window, and just said figure out how best to exploit it and/or just go nuts if you don't care. Its like we're back to MW2 insanity. I'm really hoping over the next few days theres some revelations that make this less crazy than it looks at face value.
