The video did have all of the features required by the forum rules.  However, the rules generally like it if you have some text to go with the video.  A quick synopsis if you will of the main learning points.  Looking forward to your Core submission.

It totally did.. in the video.  The forum guidelines state that the video should compliment the discussion, and not the other way around. This is why a "video thread" has been allowed to exist: One should not have to watch the video to the idea; the discussion should be talking about what and how you are doing it, and the video is the showing of the accomplishments.

No worries mate, no harm intended, no foul given (hopefully lol).

Overall that was exactly the kind of video that this thread was meant to draw in.  Good tips and good gameplay.  Nice job.  I think that this thread is so interesting because it dives into more than just getting the streaks but also your thinking and why what you did was so effective.  That's where the true learning begins.  Personally, I'd be scared to death to use betties as liberally as you did in HC but you made it work.  I'd imagine that it worked due to a combo of placement and knowing your teams aggressiveness level but it worked.

Okay, I have my first entry into the challenge.  I had to cut the video down to just my streak run to get it under the 2 minutes that Elite will allow but here goes.  It's a HC DOM match on Downhill where my team wins and I finish 37 - 17 8 caps and 4 defends with Dogs.  I wish I could have uploaded the whole match since it was not a sure thing.  The other team flanked us relentlessly and held me to just getting UAVs the whole first half but in the second half I finally figured them out.

As tips and tricks go, pay attention to what I did when I got my UAV.  I knew that the enemy was on our home flag but I didn't know how many or which way they would go.  By putting myself in the most advantageous spot that I could think of, I set myself up for my streak run.  Later you'll see how I used my VSAT to cherry pick opponents.  If there's any thing that I've tried to learn it's that just because you have a VSAT up it doesn't mean that you are invincible.  Enjoy the video.

lol I never thought that I'd ever hear my name, a sniper rifle, and impossible to beat all in the same sentence.   Thanks for the compliment.  The sniper rifles in BO2 though are pretty easy to work with.  So I can't take all of the credit.

I'm sure that some folks will call it campy but I don't mind.  I play whatever style works and when I camped it was because I was getting bum rushed by the enemy.  However, I keep one heck of a campground because when do you ever see a camper cap not just 3 flags but all 3 flags (ABC) inside of 2 min?  Especially on a map the size of Downhill.
