    Just a few things to consider for sledgehammer

      Ive been playing call of duty since cod 4, so I know a little about what were good things in the game and the bad things. Also I'm not here to complain about campers or lag that stuff is a part of the game that will never go away. I just remember all the fun moments in call of duty history and id like to just share some thoughts with you guys and sledgehammer in some things they should do.

       

      1. Customization- I think the customizing has gotten a little out of hand, I remember some of the best times I've had in COD was MW2 trying to unlock all the titles and emblems, especially the moving ones, you felt accomplished when you got those 1000 AC130 kills for the spinning emblem. This has completely vanished from COD, now it's all this armor, skin color, headgear, and all the other nonsense. I've gotten to wear I don't even care what my character looks like, when I use to spend countless hours going for titles and emblems.

       

      2. Killstreaks- killstreaks for the most part have been fantastic until COD Ghosts, all I ask is that you do not fall in Ghosts footsteps while creating killstreaks. I enjoyed the killstreaks in MW2, BO1, and BO2 And I think I can speak for most people when I say that. All I ask is that you look at those killstreaks while youre creating advanced warfare

       

      3. Weapon Camos- buying Camos is complete bullcrap, what happened to 100 head shots? Now it's all these dumb challenges that take YOU out of your playing "comfort zone" to get Camos. I personally don't even go for Camos anymore because why in the world would I want to get 200 kills with no attachments, or 50 lean kills? I don't want lean or be prone to get some camo, I want to be able to play how I want to get Camos.

       

      I hope a lot of you veteran COD players see my points, and that sledgehammer will please incorporate some of these thoughts into Advanced Warfare. Can't wait for the game guys.

          Removing headshot camo's is a good move. All they did was make people sit in a corner boosting for them.

            You certainly aren't speaking for me or many forum members here when you say this. Killstreaks should not dictate a game's outcome and Black Ops II was the worst about this. One lucky EMP or a lucky killstreak while taking a flag and the game was downhill. There's a guy on this forum who got Dogs within 45 seconds of the start of a game, that should never happen.

             

            Keep kill/point/scorestreaks to a minimum and don't reward luck with overpowered airsupport.

                I'm not saying change the score system or anything, I'm just saying the types of kill streaks you get. All the killstreaks in cod ghosts are trash, all I'm asking is they put good killstreaks in the new COD. I'm not asking them to change the score system.

                      but thats what they miss, the kill streaks that destroy the enemy and reduce the game to a derby of bombs and them hiding, instead of fighting with their WEAPONS!

                          Well I still don't think thats what the OP was saying.

                          Those killstreaks were only good if the enemy didn't shoot them down. I miss having a stinger and a sam turret. The enemies killstreaks rarely made it to the playing field. I feel like the killstreaks in Ghosts cripple the game more than ever. Choppers are hard to take down and a stream of oracles is almost a guaranteed win for any team.

                              The SAM Turret was a really good support option.

                                I miss the stinger as well, I always had one. But now I run the MAAWs or air superiority if I dont want to be bothered by kill streaks or run blind eye, what I am reading from your response is that you do not change based on what you are experiencing. A huge fault.

                                    That is offensive. I feel obligated to take out killstreaks because it seems no one else wants to do it. I just don't want to always have to run a MAAWS, Air Superiority, or LMG with AP rounds. I can't exactly "run blind eye and not be bothered" since I will have to watch my team mates die over and over.

                                        Offensive? Trust me, if I wanted to offend you, it would be as clear as day.

                                         

                                        If you dont want to run them, then why are you complaining? Besides the point that you and your team allowed the enemy to get aerial killstreaks, you really should attempt to manage your own gaming first.

                                  He did say that when he say he wants the same streaks back in the game. That's what they do and why they're so loved. I for one hate playing 80% of a match looking up into the sky shooting stuff down.

                                There is just too much of everything nowadays,remember when there was no killstreaks.I've always said less is better.

                                  I hope AW is designed more like MW3. I thought that game had good overall balance and I had a lot of fun with it.

                                    They should make unlock for camos point blank kills instead of headshot kills

                                      II'M not saying put OP killstreaks in the game just fun ones and ones that don't completely suck like ghosts killstreaks do. And I wouldn't want to see the return of a game ending killstreak but the MOAB was fun to get

                                          But for people like you who seem to always claim the ones in Ghosts suck, "fun" and "OP" tend to go together, especially given the ones you and others want to come back are things like the Reaper, AC-130, B-52, UAV, and such. If you ever want stuff like MW2 to BO2 had, then you'd better be willing to put in the actual work to get them like you do in Ghosts if you want things like the Loki or Odin.

                                           

                                          The Streaks in Ghosts may be far from the flashiest, loudest, bombastic, and so on, but they're balanced overall. They help you and/or your team just like they're supposed to without letting you get lazy with them by them doing a majority of the work for you. They don't single-handedly turn the tide of the game unless you put in the work for the higher tier ones rather than minimal work for mid-to-high tier ones like you could in MW3 and BO2.

                                          I hope they bring back a moab type streak to AW. I see no negative associated with it. a few boosters shouldn't ruin it for everyone and the worst that can happen is you get one death. I think the fun of them greatly outweighs any negative.

                                            im just saying being back some good ones like AC130, warthog, mortar strike from BO1. Put in good/fun killstreaks. Another thing is I hate the specialist and support killstreaks classes. It should go back to only assault killstreaks like BO1 and BO2.

If you were playing the game to simply show off titles and emblems, then why even play COD? I'm still under the impression the idea is to win. But this game has plenty of patches, and what not to work on if you so desire.

                                              Good job IW in providing killstreaks that are designed to help, not solve many players lack of play!

                                              I dont have zero issue spending money if I choose to on camos or skins, its their game they want to sell stuff they will. By the way, there are uniforms / headgear that are very challenging, because they are not like MW2's (what ever that means) doesnt make them bad. Your "comfort zone" is gone, wake up to reality.

                                               

                                              Nothing vs you, but if you think AW is going to be anything like MW2 and revert to that "comfort zone" you so wish, I would seriously tell you not to buy the game. The last thing we need are more fools buying a game they will not like.

                                               

                                              Good luck gaming.

                                                Killstreaks... How about we don't include killstreaks at all? Why can't anyone see that BO2 did the game award winning move by making them scorestreaks and encouraging people to run around playing the objective?

                                                    Actually, while it had potential and good intentions, BO2's Scorestreak System was far too rewarding in giving points for virtually everything you did, so it did not exactly give that much incentive to go for the objective (still tons of complaints about people camping to pad their K/D in Domination rather than helping with the objective).

                                                    you guys must have never played any if the past CODs, MW2 and BO1 were like the best CODs ever made. Ghosts completely sucks and completely made me lose interest in that game within a month of playing. Just look at the number of players that are on a daily basis, the numbers are so much lower than they use to be. Ghosts is garbage and I don't want AW to be anything like it. If you like Ghosts you have 0 taste in COD. Ghost doesn't even feel right to play

                                                        This post pretty much shows how these "suggestions" are completely bias in favor of your own gameplay and not the community as a whole.

                                                         

                                                        You talk as if your opinion is the end all of the argument. You say MW2 and BO1 are the best and that's that. Same with saying Ghosts sucks and is the worst, no argument allowed and if you try to argue then you have "zero taste in CoD". Just like the rushers who try to accuse anyone who disagrees with their rusher bias of being a camper.

                                                         

                                                        The whole "if you're not with us then you're against us" mentality is one of the problems with a large chunk of the community (and the country as a whole) that needs to go.

                                                        Ive been playing call of duty since cod 4, so I know a little about what were good things in the game and the bad things. Also I'm not here to complain about campers or lag that stuff is a part of the game that will never go away. I just remember all the fun moments in call of duty history and id like to just share some thoughts with you guys and sledgehammer in some things they should do.

                                                         

                                                        1. Customization- I think the customizing has gotten a little out of hand, I remember some of the best times I've had in COD was MW2 trying to unlock all the titles and emblems, especially the moving ones, you felt accomplished when you got those 1000 AC130 kills for the spinning emblem. This has completely vanished from COD, now it's all this armor, skin color, headgear, and all the other nonsense. I've gotten to wear I don't even care what my character looks like, when I use to spend countless hours going for titles and emblems.

                                                         

                                                        2. Killstreaks- killstreaks for the most part have been fantastic until COD Ghosts, all I ask is that you do not fall in Ghosts footsteps while creating killstreaks. I enjoyed the killstreaks in MW2, BO1, and BO2 And I think I can speak for most people when I say that. All I ask is that you look at those killstreaks while youre creating advanced warfare

                                                         

                                                        3. Weapon Camos- buying Camos is complete bullcrap, what happened to 100 head shots? Now it's all these dumb challenges that take YOU out of your playing "comfort zone" to get Camos. I personally don't even go for Camos anymore because why in the world would I want to get 200 kills with no attachments, or 50 lean kills? I don't want lean or be prone to get some camo, I want to be able to play how I want to get Camos.

                                                         

                                                        I hope a lot of you veteran COD players see my points, and that sledgehammer will please incorporate some of these thoughts into Advanced Warfare. Can't wait for the game guys.

                                                         

                                                        I don't really agree with your perspective but I do appreciate the tone and manner it was given.

                                                         

                                                        1. I like having customization options. You like titles. What is limiting having both? Keep in mind... other players see what you look like. I want a lot of customization around appearance and my weapon.
                                                        2. I prefer kiilstreaks being less emphasized. Ghosts got UAV's right. I don't want to see a regression in terms of emphasis... but I do hope they are fun .
                                                        3. TBH, what is the difference between getting 100 headshots and having to get 50 lean kills? Both are forcing you to play a certain way. I'm kind tired of grinding for camos. I like how there are clan based camos in Ghosts. Those you really have to earn.

                                                            1. I don't mind some customization, but what you have now is a joke in terms of the avatars. You have guys in Hazmat suits, now a guy in space suit.. Is not even realistic anymore. Everybody looks exactly the same and I don't like that. I like having different factions and hopefully CODAW keeps that tradition alive.

                                                             

                                                            2. The streaks in Ghosts are boring and some are damn near useless. The UAV issue is something that will always be debated and I will leave it alone. The streaks should be as follow, the higher the kills required, the more effective the streak is. The lower tiers steaks in Ghosts are better than the higher tier streaks. The Dog & the Vulture are almost identical, but the vulture last 45 seconds and the dog can last the entire match. I don't want game changing streaks, but I would like to be rewarded for earning a 12 point streak or higher.

                                                             

                                                            3. I don't use gun camos..

                                                            I think expressing your individuality based on your achievements is at the very core of COD

                                                            Killstreaks encourage the less able players to camp in order to get them and produce a slower game. Also I think that Ghosts has them spot on, they should not dominate the game as they have done previously it is a FPS.

                                                             

                                                            3. Weapon Camos- buying Camos is complete bullcrap, what happened to 100 head shots?

                                                            The whole idea of Camos is to "take you out of your comfort zone" that is why they are called "challenges" as opposed to "pieces of p!sses" and I found that trying my weapons without attachments was a real eye opener as I didn't find it as much of shock as I though I would and had more slots to try other stuff I might not have done otherwise.
