Totally brah. Did I tell you about the time I did a 1 million QS off the Agency tower in Crackdown? True story brochaco. I had it up on youtube but they took it down for being too badass.

I bitch more than Pill and rush harder than Xcal on a coke binge. I didn't last long in most of the old lobbies because everyone insisted on playing domination and I insisted on capping 3 flags (and in turn flipping the spawns). One avs'er got so mad he booted me and then promptly removed me from his friends list. Trying to remember who that was... smile.gif

buc? Was it bucwylde? I bet it was bucwylde.

Either everyone is using blind eye or something is seriously broken with this kill streak as I rarely get more than two or three targets and the maps are so large you've got to commit to one region or another as soon as you call it in. Add to this the crappy blast radius and abundance of buildings and you'll be luck to hit anything.
3. Satcoms will stack-- in fact that's the whole point! But honestly, my tip is not to even run them unless you're using wiretap or playing with a team that will all drop theirs at the same time so you get the maximum sr71 effect.
4. Yeah, just shoot it down! ARs and LMGs are best but you can really shoot them down with anything if you have enough time and ammo. If you have FMJ on your gun you'll rip through them in no time. With the exception of the gryphon, maniac and dog (but only if you're camping with the mutt) kill streaks suck in this game.

By stackinf I meant like two trinity rockets, I don't use one, then I get it again, do I now have 2 I can call in or does the second one overwrite the first one?

It overwrites.

Did anyone else notice it was slow to get into a match and also laggier than usual last night?

Oh. Gotcha. Not sure, I'll find out now.

--OK, here's your answer: no.

I played, got a satcom, died, got another sat com and the first was gone. Interestingly you can have two dogs-- one out and one in reserve.

I have not tried this with support yet but I suspect it's the same.

Last night was actually pretty bad. I was losing head to head fights one after another even when I had the drop on them. I switched to HC which was a little better but eventually it was just unplayable so I called it a night. I played for about an hour this morning and it seemed pretty smooth though.

I'm going to sound like bd here I know but-- I have zero problems with connection. Sure there's lag. And sometimes you're on the receiving end but it's never to the point where I feel I can't just change classes or tactics and deal. It's also NO WHERE near the kind of problems I had with mw3/blops2.

I'm willing to concede that the higher damage could be affecting this but by the same token I can count on one hand how many times I've had a fishy death.

Also, @WilliamR I just played flooded and called in 3 trinity rockets for a total of 1 kill. Trinity rockets suck but at least they're better than the stupid helicopter I called in that got me ZERO kills! Bring back the pavelow!! smile.gif
post #1032 of 1769
The lag I'm talking about isn't just getting shot once and seeing four hits in the killcam; it's unplayable stuttering where you're jumping around 20' and can't go through doorways or up a staircase, or find yourself having to turn at the same corner three times before you stop teleporting backwards.

Oh, and as for shooting down air streaks - there's a streak in the Support group that is a jet that takes down all air support.
post #1034 of 1769
Is there a specialist class?

Air superiority is a waste.

Yes there's a specialist strike package but it doesn't seem as OP as before. Maybe it's because you die so quick and so often I rarely see players all the way 'specialized'.

It's almost useless, because you have to kill 1+ the cost of the perks. Before you'd get a decent pro perk every 2 kills, now 2 kills will get you something minor. Choose anything worthwhile and it'll be too hard to get and makes getting the specialist bonus basically impossible. They really need to rework it.

Yeah, they are so bad I got rid of my trinity rockets and picked something else, I get zero kills with it.

I got the shock and awe care package last night. That was rather impressive, that thing freaking blows up everything on the map, I was getting K9 kills left and right, sat com destroyed, etc. and numerous kills, pretty cool.

So my answer would be yes. If you purchased the DD 360 version for $60. And then we ahead and purchased the DD XB1 version for another $10 bucks (before 03/31/14). Then whenever you actually bought (or used) an XB1 in the future, you could simply go to your purchased history and download the game with no addtional charges. Thats generally the way digital content purchases work. You download the license to use the content and there is no expiration date. You can go download it (again) anytime you want in the future. Doesnt matter if you ever use it or not.

This actually depends on where he lives, laws have been changing to deal with some of the bullocks some companies have tried to get away with because "it is a license".

Last night was the first match I had where killstreaks were a major factor. We were winning in Domination on Whiteout and someone on the other team called in a Hind. That thing must have killed our entire team three times. Between that and their dogs we were never able to get B back. Of course it was a camping sniper who got the Hind.

Also, the spawns were really jacked up in every match of KC that I played. Must have been shot in the back 20 times. That was my first real frustrating night playing this game.
post #1040 of 1769
The whole match crashed/disconnected for our party 3 times last night, not to mention laggy again. Not used to these connection problems. Also, as far a s kills, it's not even debatable that it's harder. For the FIRST TIME EVER I've actually gotten hit markers in hardcore. In a way it's a good thing in the sense that at certain guns at certain ranges struggle. But I'm telling you, I've gotten a hit marker w/ a Remington R5/MSBS/M27 at ranges that weren't all that long. NEVER happened in hardcore before this version. Maybe it's been all the lag/hosting issues I've been seeing lately. Gonna have to be quicker on the trigger!

Yeah, going to wait till the XB1 comes out to play this game anymore. I liked it over the weekend when I first started playing but it has steadily gotten worse for me connection-wise. it seems the later I play it, the worse it is/becomes. Late in the afternoon it seems fine. As soon as the majority of people are home the games become unplayable for me.

I do realize that my gameplay has to be adjusted to this version and the maps still are not familiar to me. That I can deal with. The obvious connection issues I see are what is affecting me.

I would love to see what my actual skill level is on a local 6v6 game. Where i could take out the majority of the connection based issues.

Agreed. It's an absolutely retarded KS. Not sure what the developers were thinking when they came up with the KS system but I think they were strung out on smack or something because they pretty much all suck.

Oh, let me equip air superiority, work my way up to 11 or 12 kills or whatever it is, and then hold it for the whole match and hope someone gets a chopper up in the air at some point. rolleyes.gif lame.

Saw you playing Blops2 last night and thought about switching back myself. I dunno why but this game is just not as fun to me as previous versions. Which is strange considering I've not had near the connection and hit detection issues I've had with previous versions.

And man oh man do I miss score streaks.
Kill streaks, I would say increase camping. if the only way you get the streak is kills, why wouldn't I camp.

Scorestreaks gave those that cap, get tags, etc an extra incentive and reward to do those things. They take on the majority of risk in doing those actions.

While the maps are so chaotic on ghosts, it does seem to allow an increase in the camping I have seen.

Yeah, I saw Mystaphyer playing it and remembered Jokers comments and thought, why am I putting myself through this. Give it a week and a half to get the new system with the servers (unless they lied about that as well) and see how the game performs.

My wife played as well and we had a blast. SHE actually had fun. Oh sure there was a barrage of sailor profanity coming from the living room, but she had fun.

They do. I get credit for capping flags or whatever that go towards kill streaks. I get hinds and maniac pretty easily playing the objective.

really? I did not notice that playing KC. It seemed i had to get 3 kills to get the satcom. I got 5 tags and nuthin...

Its been a while since I played COD (MW3). I just purchased Ghost this morning and played for a few hours. I was destroyed! The spawn and hit marker issues were present and accounted for in every match. I spawned and was shot from behind almost instantly. This happened at least once in every match. No network issues so far. None of the matches have frozen, terminated early, or migrated to a new host. Its been frustrating and fun at the same time. Hopefully, I can get back into the swing of things soon. I wasn't that good to begin with, life time camper, but now I can't get to a spot to camp. biggrin.gif
post #1050 of 1769
been a while since I got on such a good run. got a great round on the Earthquake level and was able to go 35-5 with juggs (no camp surprisingly and the dog only got one kill). Feels good man! something like 45 confirms. Awesome Tar with grip and suppressor. Grenades have been useless. not sure what my perks are though

it was pretty smooth for my buddy and I for a couple of hours. One host migration. I've been exclusively playing KC so I can't speak about other
