    no skill needed

    iHuntU

      First off, this is not a complaint. Just an observation.

      I've been saying that the COD games take very little skill to be good and a lot of luck, Yes, I admit, there are days when my aiming is off and I just suck, but usually it's all randomness of the game. There aren't really any skillful players.

       

      I wanted to point out one example. I was playing last night on Octane. There was a guy camped out in the diner room (diagonal opposite the strip club). I ran across the open area strait towards the diner and the guys was sitting there and killed me. Natually, I went after him. I approached from the front still, but on the side, the guy was facing me directly and killed me. Being clever, the third time, I went around the back door, Guess what, he was there and killed me. At this point I'd tried each of the three ways to get him, and I figured I'd randomly try different approaches, The guy continued to kill me a total of 8 times. One of my team mates got him. I never did get him.

       

      This to me, is a great example of luck. It did not matter how I approached the room, he was ready. I think I had lojack on me or something. Somehow he knew exactly where I was.

       

      Oppositely (is that a word?), I've been in situations where I'm the one holding down a room or an area. Let's say I can cover 80% of the area, It is absolutely guaranteed, that someone will come in the 20% I'm not covering and kill me, Happens ALL the time which is one of the reasons I seldom try and hold a location, It never works.

       

      Does this happen to you? Just curious.

          You're either very sarcastic or extremely ignorant. 

           

          No, it doesn't happen to me.  I either figure out the kill needed or don't screw with it...but I'm going to teeter on the first assumption made above, in regards to you

              He probably had Amplify on and could hear you from 50 meters away.

              If you have 5.1, 7.1 or headsets it is incredibly effective in determining where a player is coming from.

              I can literally hear people coming from ~60 meters when I'm using Amplify.
