Seriously.... WTF is up with the EMP now?

Ok... Twice I've deployed it and now TWICE the enemy went unharmed....... Literally, right after I deployed it, I hear "enemy has EMP'd us!"


The weird thing is that after I deployed the EMP, I hear "Enemy has a UAV"... And I visually saw it in the sky.

 

Wait... It gets better!

 

Right after I see their EMP-proof UAV, I hear, "The enemy has EMP'd us!"....... To which I noticed the Cobra we had in the air was still there, so obviously that didn't work either.

So WHAT THE F**K IW? It used to work fine!?

 

Are we going backwards? Are you taking a page from Microsoft's "Maybe if we introduce more bugs, they'll forget about the old ones" solution manual?

    There's a perk for that.

    EMP's are OP. Just imagine, you've got the hardest killstreak, the Osprey Gunner. Call it in, and a little support noob kid just call in his EMP, and man, you're done! Ridiculous...

    Never had an issue...just play the game and kill people.

    I always seem to get EMP'd just as I've called for my care package -_-'

     

    got chain emp'd for 3 minutes of downturn once, was annoying but not game breaking!

    The people that **** air are the ones that can never form enough kills to get any assault or specialist points.

      wait...what?

       

      I am super thankful when people shoot down enemy air support, I do it if i can, i'll switch classes if i need to.

       

      and you sir are an idiot if you don't even try to take out air support if you can.

      This is one of the dumbest statements I've seen on here yet. You tell me who's the bigger noob the guy who takes out air support asap or the guy who keeps getting killed by it? Just can't win with you kids. Your a noob if you take down air support, but I bet when your air support is smashing the other team your calling them stupid noobs for not taking it down with your smug grin thinking how good you are, Then you're also a noob if you use blind eye.So basically it boils down to a race to get the kill streak first. Nothing else matters, everything else is being a noob. lol

      EMP provides a timeout if you're being pounded by the opposing team. If you run Assassin Pro, then the ONLY thing it inhibits is your air support. You still have your sights and your map/readout.

       

      People are really that upset over losing their air support for ONE MINUTE? As far as how long it lasts versus match time; I've seen matches last only a few minutes to begin with and I've been in wars of attrition that I felt would never end.

       

      By the time most reach 17-18 kills, they've been pounded to death by predator missiles, cobras and only God knows what else.... So the fact people are crying so much about an EMP that lasts for one minute is absolutely ridiculous. It's not like it completely wipes out your reward (Unless it's in the air of course). After the one minute mark, you're free to resume the barrage.

       

      And for the record, I personally play all three classes. I pick the one that best suits the gameplay.


      @RYKINxx - Opposing opinions are part of every conversation, but there's no need to be a d*ckhead about it. Sh*t talking keyboard heros are bottom feeders that try to suck the rest of us into their misery. Please take it to another post or even forum for that matter. I started this thread to voice a concern about a problem, not to receive unproductive vomit from lonely trolls seeking attention.

       

      EDIT:: Actually RYKINNxx - I checked out your history and see that's ALL you do. You jump in a thread to vomit your worthless, unproductive, infantile point of view. You seemed to be obsessed with "****" as you use that word in more posts than you don't.... Maybe you're in denial? I'm sorry if you're haunted by compulsions you have issues controlling. There's help for that. Maybe you should be on those forums seeking advice?

    i think the EMP should be 30-45 seconds max, but i run assassin pro almost exclusively now bc of the UAV spam so it isn't a big deal. a bit annoying to miss out on points earned from killstreaks i can't call in, but as long as we get the win it's fine
