CoD sometimes seems unfair from another perspective

There is no such thing as "fair" when it comes to war, dont matter if it is in a game or in real life. But what you cannot do, is compare a game to real life in any way (like you tried to do with your example)





Well, yeh I think I messed stuff with that example of the America vs small countries, I only used it cuz of y'know, most of the militar power I know is focused there.

I know a war can never be fair, despite the intentions, religion, ideas, political diferences, all that seen from the eyes of soldiers and those who suffer from it.



But this thing is a game, a game is intended to be a fair play between a group of individuals, there is when I see it is unfair sometimes from a diferent point of view.

An already wining team getting more stuff to strike harder, I'm not against the awarding of Killstreaks but I feel the losing team at least needs a counter KS or something that lets em boost the score a bit (or at least the ones who perform awfully compared their top score mates).

There are some games that saw that coming and made some score balancing so everyone becomes happy, and get the game balanced regardless the results:



-Mario kart is an example: the 4th to 6th place usually get the best results-shifting items to bring em back to the first 3 places and the 7th 'n so on get the more powerfull items in a row (altought annoying), it made it for a fair play even if it need a way measure it a little bit.



-L4D, from the few time I played it online, I've seen that the infected team often selects the lower scoring player to become the tank or the one with most deaths when the time is right.



-SSBB, this one is a bit lame but fair, the player who gets to be beaten more often, sometimes spawns with the final smash ready, the fair thing from here is that at least you have a chance to steal it from the player.



Who knows, maybe it can even reduce the number of rage quitters and host rage quit a lil bit, just a thought.

The game is fair. What you are suggesting is that better players be handicapped so poorer players have a better chance. That would not be fair. As long as all sides are playing by the same set of rules, there is no way to say that a team that is dominating is being unfair in any way. That is like saying a #1 sports team is being unfair by whooping the last place sports team. In the end, skill is really what it is all about.

And returning to my original post, its a thought, not saying we need to move anything. I'm aware that there is a barebones lobby (that seems always empty), just having some empathy on the enemy when gets crushed so awfully that even if I'm winning its no fun.

Unfortunately , Communism has been given a bad rep. It is the only type of system that can ever work to bring true unity and peace to the world. The problem is, it has been abused by those nations that have tried it, and it is a threat to the capitalist nation who profit of the backs of the common man. People have been brainwashed to think Communism is a bad thing, when in reality, capitalism, which is driven by greed is the worst thing the world has ever seen.





WTF. Communism will never work because it takes away a persons reason to work harder. When it doesn't matter how much you produce people tend to produce the bare minimum. Greed is the reason that millions of Americans go to work everyday. Socialism/communism is the reason millions of other sit at home and do nothing each day collecting their welfare checks. Greed is what makes the American dream work the fact that I can go out work someone else and make my self successful rather than sitting around expecting someone else to make my dreams come true. Communism stifles human dignity and ingenuity . Greed on the other hand drives a person to open a business thereby providing jobs for others who in their greed want a better life for themselves and their families. Greed is s beautiful and wonderful thing!!

Thats why they said that Greed is the problem not communism, if greed wasnt relevent or was non existent people would realize the importance of doing work even in a communist enviorment which would also eliminate much of the worlds poverty and starvation and wars

Greed isn't the problem. I submit that laziness is the true problem. Without laziness the world would be a better place. Communism didn't work because of laziness and apathy. Not because of greed. Greed is a productive trait laziness is the polar opposite. Yes in a vacuum communism would be great but in the real world people need a great enough incentive to not be lazy. Communism can't supply this insentive because no matter how hard I work I won't personally benefit and no matter how lazy I am I won't suffer. Misery is an incentive when you take away the misery you take away the incentive for a person to better themselves. Some people no matter how much they have us never enough and others no matter how much you give them they will never have anything. It goes back to the old adage something for nothing is worth nothing. This why we see all the spoiled brats on this forum complaining about any and everything because they have never earned anything so have no way to place a value on anything.

I didn't put this topic on a tangent that was done by others. I was simply defending the free enterprise system that has made America a great country.
