Is There Hate for Support players?

I have heard alot of hate for support players, that use EMP support jugs, and stealth bombers... why is that?

    Funny thing is people tend to hate / love everything about the game when it benefits them.

  • Re: Is There Hate for Support players?

    people moan because of the stealth bomber and the emp they say you shouldnt get any streaks that get you any kills because it doesnt reset on death like the other 2 strike packages do

    • Re: Is There Hate for Support players?

      and I thought of that, but at the same time, those perks are gained after a decent amount of kills,  more beneficial assult kill streaks are gained way before the stealth bomber or emp where you can spam the sky with them, so thats why support seemed fair to me

    People only hate b/c even when running Support they can't rack up enough kills for the Stealth, or EMP, or Escort, or Jugg....

    Support streaks dont bother me what so ever. I only tend to use them when playing domination  or running it on my blind eye class. I dont really understand why people would hate on it and ive never come across this. If anything they make more sense to me as strike packages like air support just get shot down anyway so whats the point of trying to get a 7 killstreak without dying and get no kills from it or plod along on support get 14 kills=Stealth bomber=triple kill+... No brainer

    I dont hate it but its very annoying to have stealth bombers and such called back to back, I played a game where 4 stealth bombers were called back to back

    It's very TRUE that people complain about what doesn't benefit them.  In fact, most of the people that do complain about support killstreaks are those that use Assault all the time and try to go for big killstreaks.  Going for big killstreaks is kind of selfish in most cases (with the exception of TDM and FFA).  People are going to complain because you didn't have to camp in a corner to get 12 kills in a row without dying to get your killstreak, but on the same hand you placed yourself on the objective, basically taking bullets for your team so you could win, and yet they complain about it!?  You were valuable to the team and you deserve compensation for it that's worth your effort! 

    Final Word:  People are too blinded and selfish and immature to realize what they are saying.  My guess is about 85% of the time when people complain, they arent looking at the big picture.  IMO, this game is the MOST balanced COD to date.

    I think people only hate on them because there are lethal killstreaks in there, which probably shouldn't be considering it's support. And the EMP seems to last a life time. =)

  • Re: Is There Hate for Support players?

    Yes people do have hate for support players. I now use specialist but when the game first came out I ran support. And I got into a match with a guy who complained about me using it. He ran assault and was made because his reset and mine didn't. What was funny was that he would get the most angry when I tagged him with a recon drone.

     

    Well here is what he threatened to do since I ran support. He told me he was going to call his cousin from Activison and have my rank reset and get me banned. I laughed and chuckled at him. He never did so I think he lied about his cousin lol

    People hate on Support supposedly because it's easier to get the killstreaks but seriously have you seen how easy it is to get Assault killstreaks? If a guy runs a pred missile he likely can get a double from that which leads straight to an Attack Heli (because Assault streaks stack unlike Support) and two kills from the Heli and he's got a Reaper. I know Heli's often get shot down but you get my point.  So if he's running hardline, all he has to do is get 4 kills for the pred and in a matter of seconds he's got a 9 pointstreak reward. I would like to see someone explain to me how getting 4 kills is so much more difficult than the 14 needed for the Stealth Bomber.  And if the Assault guy is really good he could have 3 Reapers and still have 2 less kills than the guy with the Stealth Bomber.  I like running Assault btw because it gets me more kills but sometimes I also run Support.  The people that whine about Support are just whiners.  I think that the game is fairly well balanced between the two. Oh and have you noticed that Specialist only takes 8 kills to get every perk and proficiency in the game? That's still less than 14.

    • Re: Is There Hate for Support players?

      Agree with all your points. But just to add to the Specialist only needing 8 kills to unlock all the perks at once.  It's a little more difficult to do, for the reason as you mentions on assault you have a predator and attack heli doing the work for you.  In Support it doesn't matter if you die just as long as you get those kills, you could go 14 and 22 and get the stealth bomber.  In Specialist you have to shoot or grenade all 8 oppenents to get that streak.

    I have no problem with all of the support point streaks except for the lethal ones. If your to s**t to string together 14 or 15 kills,why should you earn a stealth bomber to ruin my KS when im one off a pavelow or osprey. The EMP was quite hard to earn in MW2, but in this game its to easily earned and can be effective when spammed by the enemy. Phx,the obvious answer is that the 4 killstreak you talk about was gained as a streak without dying,whereas the kills needed for a SB don't have to be consecutive.

  • Re: Is There Hate for Support players?

    the thing i hate is when i get killed on a high killstreak by a stealth bomber by the kid going 14 - 58.
