I agree with all your points on matchmaking and weapon balance and options for sound and visuals. I however have to disagree with you on removing the noob tube and last stand, ect. They may be annoying but they add options to the game. I think they need to be tweeked (no Last Stand frames of immunity, no resupply of tubes) but they are not that terrible that they need to be axed completely.
Great post. However, I feel Stopping Power and Juggernaut should stay, or atleast have a bigger variety in Perk 2. Otherwise, we'd all be using Cold Blooded/Danger Close, etc. If there's a good variety of perks for the perk 2 slot, by all means, get rid of Stopping Power and Juggs.
