blame all their problems on lag/assist.
Like you did in MW3?
Wii Remote is the most legit controller out! Its been in Cod Wii games from the beginning! I'm glad its gonna be on Ghosts!
It's simple, bad kids will always find something to blame for them doing terrible. Mind you, most of these people who say "X IS OP" or !X CONTROLLER SUX" is probably your average bad 1 KD player, who wouldn't know what, and what is not balanced if it reached out and slapped them in the face.
Personally, you shouldn't even bother voicing your opinion unless you have a 2KD and at least a 450 SPM (less SPM if you play SnD or TDM), because no-one is ever going to take you seriously.
As a 4.54 KD. 550SPM wiimote player (who doesn't use aim assist) I find it ludicrous that kids berate the wiimote whilst they are pretty much reliant on aim assist to get kills.
I will admit that playing a wiimoter using aim assist and using the SWAT, or the KSG, is incredibly annoying, frustrating and downright dirty. You're literally hoping that there snap fails and they miss or some sort of lag spike happens and you get lucky. I fail to beat them at the best of times and they rarely have even a third of my KD.
But I wouldn't judge them to harshly, think about how many DA players get kills they shouldn't thanks to aim assist. Quite a lot i'd say, and outside of the SWAT/KSG, aim assist isn't too useful on wiimote. So in the end, all this BS balances out and if its not lag or the fact that there pet cat distracted them, they will find something to blame.
In the end, the real take home message we should be learning is that no-one likes aim assist, wiimoters hate that DA players become super duper accurate and DA players hate that the KSG is super duper accurate either. The solution seems clear to me, tone down aim assist on both controllers, or remove it all together.
But since this game caters to the casual crowd, none of those are going to happen, so this debate will go on and on and on and on, and misinformed 1 KD baddies will continue to blame what they feel like.
Stats don't mean jack on COD because they're easy to fake as well as the fact COD is just an easy shooter. Anyone can get a high KDR/SPM by powering down when doing bad, resetting stats, making a new account, getting breast fed from constant party play, having mostly bad players in your general area, reliance on computer help from killstreaks, ETC.
1) getting breast fed from constant party play, 2) having mostly bad players in your general area, reliance on computer help from killstreaks, ETC.
You see this is where you take the game and yourself far too seriously, because,,,
1) I like the idea of being breast fed, but we play in parties to joke and have a laugh, even talk about what colour we painted the house etc.
2) Yeah I do that, but its better than pretending we're really good when your connection makes it so easy for you.
Dream on James.
Ive said this since I started playing cod. You can add to that the fact that some people, not naming names, but some people have an advantage with connection. Its impossible for people to consistently get 50 kill tdms, and 100 kill dom games, playing solo with scrubs, they are just ahead of other people with connection.
Stat padding is very easy to do, winning is easy if your in a full party of decent players, pub stompin in domination. Ive been part of that with the r@pe squad, its fun but boring, and win streaks dont mean anything. Play solo, no matter how good you are, your gona lose loads of games due to the matchmaking in bo2, theyll always stick you with the scrubs, and you cant carry people game after game. Ive played bo2 mainly solo for say 95% of the time, and found playing domination alone tiresome, constantly playing 5 man teams of 10yro trash talking squeakers. I started playing HC, and at first enjoyed it, its good carrying teams to victory alone, but having built my kdr to 1.84 from 1.10 by being a little cautious, I now find myself with the 0.30 kdr rags on my team EVERY game, and when your playing with guys who go 2-22,you arent gona win.
I cant play any other modes on best as theres no lobbies, so im stuck between a rock and a hard place. Play dom alone and get stomped, play dom in parties and lag like crazy, play hctdm alone and get stuck with scrubs.
Its getting to the end of the life cycle of this game, and im all but through with it. Its been nothing but rage for pretty much 10 months.
If it helps to raise a point: i'm prestige master and i have a 1.2 K/D. I don't even remember what my SPM is, but it's probably 200 or 300 or something.
I stopped caring about K/D back on Black Ops Wii.
