I bought it - hated it.

Too many issues - spawns, teleporting, players disappearing and reappearing, framing, etc.

I tried it again after the last patch - didn't make a difference. I'll play it one more time after the next major revision - but it looks like there won't be another revision so that settles that.

You can tell what's going on with this company - the suits are making decisions the programmers can't keep. Sorry, good software doesn't just happen - you can't FORCE it to happen on a schedule. It's ready, when it's ready and not a moment before.

Spawns are being fixed.  If you're having lag issues mess around with your router.  After every playlist update they change something with the connection and I have to adjust my router, but I've always been able to get the game to run smooth. The only time the lag is bad is when I host with players from other countries connected to me. 

Any other time the game runs great.  Even when I do experience some lag, with the exception of the above scenario, the maps are big enough that I can flank everyone just fine.

1.no op aim assits, no op weapons? cough aim lock msbs wiimote cough that's a good one every single ar takes absolutely no skill to use, smg are weak even at cqb lmgs have tubes on them btw there's danger close riot shield double c4 and support streaks combine that on a objective gamemode it's impossible to defeat a team doind that plus you can have two squad teammates at once they pick up vest and their secondary is like a sniper

2. good maps? you gotta be joking big and with unnecessary flanking routes, hiding spots especially designed for ppl to not move at all

3. lag and hit detection are basically the same you just don't realize how bad it is because again high damage no recoil ars

4. balanced streaks? nope specialist got a major nerf, assault is plain boring and simply countered by support and that shouldn't be the case why? because you shouldn't get rewarded for doing bad

5. gunskill? doesn't matter I put on amplify and hear you from a mile away even if you have dead silence then pre fire you're dead

I don't like been all negative but ghost is by far the worst cod to date they tried to copy bf so much and bf isn't a bad game but ghost just doesn't feel like cod you get rewarded for playing like a complete bitch ignoring the objective and if you play on a bad connection you'll get a lag shield.

point is if you haven't bought ghost and you are thinking about buying it because you liked bo2 and the older games then don't because you will not like it only chance is if you like playing hide and seek

You don't like that stuff, but the game is balanced just fine.  Unless you're getting lagged SMGs will pwn ARs in CQC all day. So will shotguns.  You can just hipfire the SMGs and do it.  There's just not a lot of CQC out there.   Yes it has danger close.  It also costs 4 points to use.  LMGs have tubes.  Why does that matter?  It's not like tubes are OP and everyone is running around dominating with them. 

The maps being that large an open is brilliant.  It allows you flank routes to any campers.  In order to hold down all those routes you need team work.  That's what it's designed for.  People hide and camp regardless.  You just have to learn where they are.  All you have to do is check your corners.

MSBS being OP is debatable, but it's getting nerfed anyway.  It's not like you see everyone running around and dominating with it like akimbo FMGs or something.  Hardly anyone uses that gun anyway.  Nothing more than the occasional death for me. 

Amplify is effective but no one is dominating matches because of it.  It may work well when nothing is going on, but you can pretty much never hear a DS user during a hectic match until they are right on top of you.  And instead of running around that corner they could just crouch walk and you'll never hear them.  And if you don't think that is balance well DS is getting a buff so there you go.

I don't find assault boring at all.  I love the trinity rocket and the helo pilot.  Heck even the battlehind is pretty good.  Gryphon is good too.  Support counters the airborne assault streaks, but I'd prefer a player get a bunch of kills to earn the right to shoot down my chopper instead of just switching to a launcher.  How is that not better?  They have to earn the right to shoot down your chopper instead of just switching weapons.  They also HAVE to be running air superiority to guarantee they can take it out.  I haven't had a helo pilot shot down yet.  It's really not bad at all when you stop and think about what you're saying.  I mean it sounds bad when you say "assault is countered by support", but break down what that means and it's really better than it ever was.

Everybody should go to the ghost forums and you'll see plenty of reasons why you shouldn't waste your money.

I appreciate naps efforts to increase the player base, but this isn't the game to promote.

If you do get it, there are plenty of 2nd hand copies, no point in coughing up full price when support has either already finished, or if by some miracle we do get this next patch, all support will end next month. But in all honesty, I don't believe we'll get the patch ATU mentioned recently, so buy 2nd hand..

Because you live on the servers doorstep, (and you enjoy mediocre games) it plays ok for you. For those of us that grew up with different standards and enjoy well made items, and for the majority of players, it plays like a broken piece of rubbish.

Seriously Bobby, I know your weather is bad over there, but you need to get out more

it blows my mind it tells you flat out when inserting the disc to play squads modes first but people dont listen, jump on multi no idea of loadouts, no squad points to unlock anything, no idea of map routes etc and wonder why they get mowed down. people were earning 200,000 xp in safeguard2xp and racking up squadpoints, and learning operations, weapons characteristics, streak-handling etc, but i guess if you dont even try the modes mediocre right? and if there is lag there it really is your internet, since you can pull host often and play with way less people. i just finished a lag free game of extinction with two friends in the uk, and another i california, while hosting from ny.
