Great thread.... Don't have time to like almost every post. Sticky and point the complainers here to maybe give them something besides whining to think about.

I think knowing the maps/ sight lines and anticipating the others teams movement as earlier pointed out is one thing a lot of people don't get.

For example as I was playing solo today on whiteout I noticed early the other team just loved being in the building with the waterwheel. Flooded the area with some IEDs to watch my back and prowled for the kill. Set up the ims to protect the side where the satellite crashes and the sentry point set towards the lodge, all of sudden there is a battle hind flying around. With a little forethought, adaption and observation I was able to hold down a large area of the map. I loved when a random set up another set of kill streaks to extend our area of control further towards the crash area. we were playing against group of (at least) four in a clan and they just kept coming back. Dumb bastards.

For me i would say.

Constancy, meaning someone who dose well in all situations and comes out on top most games.

Thinking on the fly, meaning can change up when the time calls for it, camp, rush, defend when the time calls for it.

Remembers its a game, meaning when you try to hard you end up doing worse as apposed to playing smart but still having a good time with the people they play with. Able to admit when he gets outplayed and not blame it on lag.

And oh yea what you guys said. I suck at the game but mostly have fun.

do you mean consistency? If so I agree with that 100% someone who is consistently good is someone great to party with.

And your final one is very important, this game is just that a game.

     I can't rely on cat light reflexes to play this game, but fortunately, you don't need those in this game to have fun.

1.  Accuracy.  Totally agree.  First one to land bullets wins.

2.  Patience.  This one is huge.  A lot of times I know a guy is close to me, but instead of waiting for him to make a move, I'll get tired of waiting and go out after him.

3.  Perception.  This could wrap up your points 2 and 3, with a few others.  Knowing where the enemy is when you can't see them, either by sounds, where your team is or just general map knowledge is pretty handy.

I love Call of Duty, it gives me satisfaction because it provides me with hours of entertainment filled with fun, rage, and an escape from everyday bullshit, that's it.

Though this was not a thread on how we feel about the game, thanks for sharing something positive.

1. Knowledge and Wisdom

     -Map knowledge, spawn points, map reading, game smarts, and prediction of enemy locations is very crucial in this game.    

     -Using the layout of the map and your immediate surroundings to your advantage.

     -Knowing when to camp, when to hide, when to run away, and when to RNG.

2. Speed

     -Reaction time, quick thinking, and hand and eye coordination.

3. Might

     -Projecting your might in a game and making your enemies feel what you're capable of. This part is more of a psychological warfare. If you can make your enemies believe that they stand little chance against you or they are lesser skilled, chances are, you are dictating the tempo of the game. They are reacting to how you play the game. This is where you project your dominance over your opponents.

Note: All of these are good to have as a solo player but it doesn't mean much if you are playing against a well organized team.

All good points but I particularly like your 3rd one.  When you can impose your will on the enemy team to the point that they lose sight of the objective, winning becomes a lot easier.  Last night while playing with one of my clan mates in DOM we did just that.  He kept throwing Smoke on the B flag and while some of the enemy team were using thermals, those guys weren't going after the flag.  We flanked the crap out of them and kept them guessing.  They became unsure of themselves and their hesitation allowed us to push forward a bit and basically start playing TDM.  We put such a stranglehold on their spawn that they had no choice but to go for kills rather than flags and we won that match with no issues whatsoever.
