It is for bad players, lol. If good players run support, they are running a strike package for bad players. Stealth Bomber is annoying and doesn't "support" your team, it should be an assault killstreak and the fact you can combine that with EMP is just ridicoulous, you get multi-kills plus you can stop the other team from using killstreaks? - Right. It isn't aimed at KDR but surely 80-90% of these players that run support will run whatever gets them kills like Escort Airdrop (seen a LOT recently), Stealth Bomber, Remote Sentry, Airdrop trap. I rarely see anything else boys.
It was funny for two or more reasons:
1) you said "hole new way to play" - I think you meant "whole new way to play", but this reads much funnier. I'm not laughing at the actual typo, I'm laughing at how it changed the meaning. Dirty jokes and such. lols
2) you also said "a hole", which added more comedic value. And in context of this particular forum, made it all the funnier
thx for that
I have my Take Down class, which I use when I see people on the other team are proficient at calling in their air support. It uses BE, Assassin and Sitrep, with a stinger. It also uses the support package:
- SAM (for taking out UAVs,CUAVs and flares from air support
- EMP for obvious reasons (the class is called take down)
- and yes, the stealth bomber.
I use the stealth mainly to cut off the path when playing DOM... I often get no kills, but yeah, I have also wiped out an entire team with one shot.
Being a half-decent player, I do find that running the support package is a bit of overkill. Many times I will go through my streaks 2-3 times a game so I sometimes think it is a bit unfair. When I am in a lobby of lesser skilled players I will swap the stealth for Bvests.
So I agree with someone above:
The Support package is meant for players who either cannot get a streak going
It can be a bit unfair when a better player uses it.
However someone also said (and I agree): It takes the stress out of trying to stay alive!
How many times have you been 1 off from your killstreak and you die. So as a result when you know you are close, you slow your game down so you can achieve it... With the support pack, You can go in and no worry about risking it.
I maintain that for using the support pack, it should be on a tier basis, and when you die, you drop a tier. Or, for every time you die, you do not start over, but you drop by 1. Therefore if you have a 5-9-18 selection and you get 4 kills and die, you respawn with a count of 3, and not 4. if you die again, you respawn with a count of 2, and have to get 3 kills without dying to get your 1st achievement. Rinse and repeat.
This way... a bad player would never be able to get a stealth bomber (or EMP etc..), a half decent player could get them, but it would be harder so you would not see people like me getting 3 EMPs in a game.
I'm using Support at the moment because I'm bored of playing with the Strike and Specialist Packages. I'm mixing it up a bit. Getting new tiltles and emblems. I'm an average player so I can go around the package 3 times so yeah it can be overpowered for the better player. I use BV's, Adv UAV and Stealth Bomber so two of them don't actually get me kills. Alot of the time the SB will only get 2 kills. Next week I might jump back onto Strike or Specialist package, it really depends on how I feel.
since when are rewarding bad players for sucking at the game ? Dude not everyone can reach GOD like skills, so dont be a d-i-c-k about it!
and why would they do something like that ? To address everyones options, not just rewarding the best players!
simple! to keep bad players from stop playing the game! You sound contradicting.
so what should we do about it ? JACK, or create your own da-mn game
-_- cant do nothing,
what do you call a bad player ? Its subjective, you have A-holes who have decent stats but playing with them is the worse, then you have decent people who don't play as well, why? Becuase they just play for fun, and don't care about what we here talk so much about.
somebody who goes 6 kills and 36 deaths on KC,
only runs support, even tho he sucked he is top dog on that match -_-: I've never seen this before, but when someone runs recon they can have low kills high deaths and be on the top three score board.
damn, is it a personal experience ? Dude chill out, play and do what you gotta do, no everyone play with the same intensity.
My question is how is someone with only 6 kills making top dog in the game? Even running support the best he could put out would be an airdrop trap or vests...makes no sense that you are complaining about someone going 6-36 and being the top scorer. I don't think that's even possible, unless they were grabbing a ton of tags. So to me that is a moot point in your argument.
Also the stealth bomber is not that great of a killstreak anymore. I've had times I use it and it's a multi-kill but the times I use it and get no kills more than levels it off.
For those ******** about EMP..run Assassin pro. I think it's hilarious that people want to gripe and complain about all these things but there is almost always a perk that makes you immune to the thing you are complaining about. Too much air support being called in? Run Blind Eye and Carry a Stinger or Javelin. I love those guys who call in their Osprey that they worked so hard for so I can blow it up before it even gets over the map. Killstreaks are incredibly weak in this game(most of the choppers you can take down in one missile or less than half a clip from an LMG) and now that you can shoot them down before they even get over the map, they are almost pointless.
The main reason I prefer the Support package is because sometimes it is just too damn hard to get killstreaks(I can't seem to ever get anything going past 8-10 kills before getting some BS death) going with all the corner camping and MP7 sniping from halfway across the map, not to mention all the BS 1-shot deaths from lag and revenge spawns. It just fits my playstyle better since I play a little more aggressively and get slaughtered by campers, and recon drone can really turn the tide of a TDM game.
