Elite Competitions are completely busted.

 

 

I as many other were excited for the 100k Elite Challenge, and when they resceduled it.

 

But, why is all of this based off of luck?

 

The matchmaking system is so broken, it throws you into games that are already over, games that you can't come back from, gaes that literally just end.

If you leave, they put you back in the same game.

 

When you finally get into the game, you get hit by People spawning with you.  Connection/Lag Compesation.

 

rapid fire beating out everything you use. - I'm so glad none of the Smgs with rapid fire have any recoil.

I'm glad that because people use steady aim and pray and spray we immediatley lose a gunfight.

 

In a nut shell, winning a challenge isn't based off of skill, it's more based of luck than anything.

Things like this is exactly why the Modern Warfare franchise has gone down the shitter since CoD4 and more people are hoping that Black Ops 2 if half of what Black Ops was, cause it beat the hell out of this.

    Even if matchmatching would be perfect it would still be based solely off connection. The only way to make if off skill is for the competition to be in one location of LAN settings. You don't get anything for Solo operations really so it is not that big of a deal.

    • Re: Elite Competitions are completely busted.

      You don't get anything? You are aware they are giving a near 12k$ Snowmobile in a FFA Comp right?

       

      Ye,s it would sitll eb based off connection, but then it would be putting us with players that have good connections.

       

      Again, why shoudl I get panalized for being able to egt good internet?

        Well why should anyone be penalized? Why should "John Doe" from the middle of nowhere be penalized for you having good Internet. I was unaware of the reward that big. But either way. Till they find a way to put everyone on a level playing field it was always be an unfair competition.

        • Re: Elite Competitions are completely busted.

          It's not even that much about connection.  I can beat somsone out when I have a 3 bar.

           

          it's more to the point that we get put into games that are already over, or far enough in that we cna't win.

           

          When we leave we get thrown into the same game.

           

          Aswella s thigns like hoest Migrations that last for 3 mins, and dashboarding.  Ontop of weapon balance.

            Well the problem there is you. They can't fix that unless they do it the Halo way (no joining game in progress.) If you get put into a game that is almost over then don't leave. Stay in and wait for the next one to start otherwise you might get into 5 games like that in a row and wasting time in the process. And there is no real way to fix dashboard except dedicated servers but you don't want to start that arguement.

    Infinity Ward made a horrible game, plain and simple, it is tolerable or horrible many times more then it can actually be fun, because of how unbalanced the guns are, the power of camping, and the host and lag compensation, they completely busted this game. Treyarch did better with black ops then Infinity Ward did with Modern Warfare 3 plain and simple, disagree you are on crack.

  • Re: Elite Competitions are completely busted.

    I made a thread two months ago highlighting the problems with the competitions and how they are more based on luck than actual skill.

    So your first game is almost half over. If you stay in the lobby all the rest of your games will start at the begining. You are crying about being killed by people camping. You state you know people camp in certain spots almost every time you play that map. THEN CHECK IT, if you dont and you die its your fault. Get better at the game. The PP90 is a great gun no doubt but it recoils like a mother, it rides up so much. Use the MP7 with rapid fire if you feel cheated. I just feel that everything you talked about was saying you arent that great of a player like you want people to just stand still and let you shoot them.

    • Re: Elite Competitions are completely busted.

      lol? I picked up a Rapid PP90, it had little kick.  And Kick doens't matter when you hip fire.

       

      I do check spots, but I can't check all of them.  thats like walking into a room, Check right or left.  You can only choose one.

       

      Choose right, campers on left, you die.

       

      Whyw ould I stay in a lopbby full of people that spray with rapid fire, or camp in corners, or kill you with dead mans hand everytime because they can't play the game?

        Aim and you might kill people more. As to the campers. People have always camped and always will. You have to adapt to kill them.

        Throw flash, hitmarker. run in fast while they are blind check right no ones there check left there they ar boom dead. doesnt always work but its effective.

         

        Sorry but No lobby will ever just be run and gunners especially in FFA. There will always be campers and will always be people using the cheap things in the game. This is COD you need to learn to adapt. I use MP7 rapid fire with suppressor, sleight of hand hardline and stalker specialist package assassin scavenger steady aim. I do pretty well 90% of the time. Hardly ever experience lag comp and I always have 4 bars. TDM is what I mainly play, i average 20 to 30 kills a match. I never rage quite I take my beating if they are better than me. EVEN IF THEY ARE USING THE TYPE 95 and AKIMBO FMG 9's

  • Re: Elite Competitions are completely busted.

    Unbalanced? This game is probably the most balanced.

     

    All the SMG's but the MP5 are widely used.

    All the snipers except the RSASS and Dragnuv are widely used, the Dragnuv and RSASS are used just as much in HC to.

    The SCAR, ACR, G36, and MK 14 are widely used.

    The Striker, and USAS are also commonly found.

     

    Compare to black ops where the Famas, AK74u, Galil, Aug, and AK were the only widely used guns.

    • Re: Elite Competitions are completely busted.

      Most balanced?

       

      I see the Mp7 more than anything.

      As for Ars I only see type 95s and ACRs.

      Snipers and Shotguns are personal Prefernce.

       

      In black Ops, I could go into a game and Find Spectre, Kip, Ak74u, Mp5.

      Or for ARs, Aug, Famas, Commando, AK47, Galail, G11.

       

      There was a lot more variety and balance in black ops.
