Ghosts' Multiplayer is Great. But why do people hate it?

I personally found that Call of Duty: Ghosts had a great multiplayer structure.  It had the following:

  • Create-a-soldier system that allows me to make each soldier built for a game mode.
  • Squad points allowed me to unlock whatever I needed first so I'm not at a complete disadvantage against others who played longer.
  • The killstreaks were a lot weaker, which brought a greater focus towards gun-on-gun and less about the streaks doing all the work.
  • Support Strike package was fixed.  Squad mates and Oracles are nothing compared to the Stealth Bomber and EMP spam from MW3.
  • Extinction mode was epic.  I thought it was even better than zombies.

But a lot of people complained about the following:

  • IEDs were too powerful - Granted, but I can recall a minor overpowered combo where people with One Man Army would set up a claymore, switch classes, and place C4 in front of it.
  • The kiillstreaks were too weak - I'm sorry they don't hold your hand anymore.  I like gun-on-gun skills being more prevalent than overpowered streaks.
  • The dog was overpowered - True, but I would rather have one dog instead of a whole army of K9's earning you way more kills.
  • The maps are huge - 6 maps, out of the 31 maps (including DLC) were huge in regards to large open areas.  I think every COD title had huge maps (MW2 had Wasteland for example).
  • The game is camper friendly - What FPS game in the history of FPS games ISN'T camper friendly!?  Every FPS game, regardless of the map sizes, will ALWAYS have campers.  The only thing that makes a game camper friendly is the people who play it.  The game doesn't force people to camp.  People make themselves camp.  If people want a game to promote movement, then give better rewards for moving around constantly.
  • Amplfy was overpowered - Yes, I agree.  MW3 also had that problem as well.  Black Ops 2 got footsteps right and I'm hoping Advanced Warfare makes them nearly silent as well.

What I found to be worse about the hate against Ghosts is when I asked those same people what their favorite COD game was.  They mostly answered with MW2 aka the most unbalanced mess for a multiplayer game.  If it's unbalanced and it gives people the means to earn 20+ kills without lifting a finger, then it's the best game ever.

Yep, the community is retarded.  Ghosts is a bad game because people can no longer sit in a corner and launch their streaks to earn 20-30+ kills.  If you don't like Ghosts, then that's good.  Go play your crappy MW2 and MW3 games so us mature and skilled gamers can play Ghosts.

Yep, the community is retarded.  Ghosts is a bad game because I can no longer sit in a corner and launch my streaks to earn me some easy 20-30+ kills.  If you don't like Ghosts, then that's good.  Go play your crappy MW2 and MW3 games and leave us mature and skilled players alone.  We don't need OP streaks jacking us off.
