    K.E.M Strike

      So i have gotten 2 K.E.M Strikes so far and i was thinking for a 25 kill streak its pretty bad for such a high kill streak, i mean besides the cool factor of destroying the map, it doesn't do much.

          well it's pretty much the same as a M.O.A.B. in MW3, but changes the Strike Zone map which is kind of cool.  BUt what kind of cheapens it is the fact that it can be obtained via a Care Package on Strike Zone.  Wish that wasn't the case.

           

          It's harder to get than a MOAB, mainly due to quick kill/death times & no portable radar or traditional UAV's,

           

          I had about 150 of them in MW3, only 1 so far in Ghosts but it was on the PS4.  And yes you're right, it's pretty bad for a high streak, but it makes the other team quit all the time, something about a sure 100% death where they have a countdown gets people quitting.

           

          Still like it better than a Nuclear in Blops 2 where nothing happens but a title.

            I Have 17

            13 from solo offline bots

            2 from stolen care packages

            1 from squads

            1 from my own care package

             

            tthe thing is unlike the Moab or nuke getting one has NO effect if you earn one or get one from a package what is the difference the entir. Kill streak system killed the fun

             

            ( good we are getting closer to the good old days of cod a bit more health and smaller maps and we will be there )

             

            but but im not going to be there I will be in titanfall I hope they port it to ps4 somed

                The KEM Strikes are overrated.  I've got a few in squads and the only ones I've liked are Strikezone (changes map) and Warhawk (mortars).  For Stormfront and Sovereign it blurs everyone's vision too much.  I don't mind that it's not the 'prestigeous' award as fewer players will boost for it now.

                    YYeah they ended kilstreaks to promote gun on gun action then made huge maps and no health wtf. Od logic

                        I personally like the kill streaks.  They don't dominate the play anymore.  It wasn't that hard before to camp/slow play up to a AUAV ( v-sat) , which in turn would feed you up to dogs or swarm.  Then everyone leaves, and it's just no fun.  Big maps- whatever, its new, and other things like spawns and more hot spots/routes and what not would help fix the slow play it encourages.  No health?  It is not low health, although it does appear to be that way.  It is also not that the guns are more powerful in relation to said health, neither enough to account for the very quick deaths.  It is connection issues, player to player/host, "lag", latency, whatever.  

                         

                        I like kill streaks though.  Even the Sat-Com's I like.  They force you to work as a team, or at least listen to when one is put out.  Even people complaining about wire tap is a bit off to me.  It takes up so much room in spots that could be used better in perks.  And if you aren't running it, and think it is that bad, then use off the grid.  It takes up just as much space, so the need to run that to counter is equivalent to the use of wire tap in my opinion.  Sorry to get off topic.

                        Rant over.

                        for now

                          Probably to tempt people to upgrade to "next gen" because Ground War will be in it.

                      I agree.  It is more of a prestigious thing.  Although it can get me going a little, I think getting one in a care package on Strikezone is alright because I personally like the map after it has been changed.  It does ruin the flow of some games when one gets laid on you, and I think its crazy that you can tea bag an enemy( or whatever easy task) and have a really good chance of getting one from that field order. 

                       

                      It is a bit underwhelming though really.  It only gives you six kills.  If you want the high powered streaks, run a Loki, and on most maps you are sure to get more than six kills.  Granted, usually when going for the KEM you run specialist.

                        The problem with the K.E.M. strike is the care package.  It's stupid as hell.  Yesterday I was playing blitz, I was 51-0, already used my KEM, and going for my second.  Guess what?  Get killed by a kid that was going 8-30.  EIGHT AND THRITY!!!  That's ridiculous!  There needs to be restrictions.  You should need to have a decent game to get one.  I swear it feeds them to shitty kids.  I shouldn't be choking my streaks because of kids that got a kill and tea bagged.  Suggestion:  If you have 20-29 kills, you must be five positive to get it.  30-39, 10 positive.  If you have under ten kills and more than that many deaths you shouldn't get free kills on people that are dominating you.  Or be able to ruin the map 2 minutes into the second round.

                            I have one so far and got it on Overlord. I only got 1 kill with it because it was the final kill of the match. I think it is a bit overrated. It's tough to get, but since you can get one in a care package for completing field orders, it's a bit watered down I think.

                             

                            Has anyone played after a KEM strike on Sovereign? That one is such a joke. Not only does it hurt the other team, but then makes it difficult for both teams because of the gas in the air. You can't see more than 10 feet in front of you. I thought that one was a bad addition.

                                Yeah I got one Sovereign playing squads.  On normal multiplayer I wouldn't mind like claiming it and then cancelling it because I can't see it being useful.  Stormfront is another one that distorts vision too much.

                                 

                                Sovereign looks like a map from Halo Reach or something.
