I'm really trying to like Cod Ghosts BUT.......

Call of Duty Ghosts Playstation 3

I'm really trying to like Cod Ghosts BUT.......

Developer: "Let's sub-categorize the perks so there's sh*t loads, and then punish the person for not having a perk on"

The other day I called in a Sat-Com, went and made some tea and toast and by the time I came back the sat-com was there....

In Activision's next Cod, there's 137 perks and if you don't have STRONG ANKLE on, then you twist your ankle when running over rough terrain, and you end up with a contextual limp ...

... and rushing around for a laugh, has no bearing anymore. There's always some guy in the darkest corner, with a picnic hamper and deckchair, who's spent 3 minutes waiting for ye, polishing his silenced AK-12....

... "and well done for getting your care package challenge, now your next challenge is to find a skylight to drop it through" ...

And with Insta-kill ,Core nearly feels like hardcore. On a bad connection day, it's nigh on impossible.

I looked for the Connection Pro perk but it wasn't there... maybe in the next game...

...now where's that BlackOps2 disc?

yep, all those perks and none of them will allow him to run like a headless chicken down the center of the map with all the speed perks and a pistol for his only weapon like he could in BO2.

Funny how in all his threads the only people that seem to kill him are campers sitting in a dark hole in a corner of the map far, far from the action who have laid motionless, not even moving to take a breath while they stare ADSed waiting so long (3 minutes) for "legitimate" players to shoot that at most they could go 3-0.  How do you die 9 times from a guy that only fires 3 rounds per game?  How do you not get revenge on a guy that is frozen like a statue ADSed the entire match?  I mean he MAY surprise you if you don't know the hiding spots, but if he is only looking one direction the entire match, he should be pretty easy to stab in the back after that.

He reminds me of a story from a long time ago, maybe on MW3?  Anyway, I see someone running towards the same building I am from the other direction.  It's a long way away, so I ADS, but it's too late for a shot, so I drop my gun and sprint to a door in the opposite side of the building of they guy I saw.  I run up to the opening between his room and mine and enter pre-firing.  I take him down and he screams "CAMPER!!"  I entered his room after he did and shot him within 1/4 second of ME entering HIS room.  As luck would have it, that kill ended up on the final kill cam and when he yelled CAMPER the entire lobby had a laugh and he left the lobby.

"There's always some guy in the darkest corner, with a picnic hamper and deckchair, who's spent 3 minutes waiting for ye, polishing his silenced AK-12". Usually its LMG thermal with incog perk or off the gridd,really trying to like this game but too much campers,every gamemode and its boring.And spawns are like shiet.If you play domination and you have 2 flag and no one is in the c flag or even close and they still spawns behind,how is that possible?fix the spawns!!!!

My biggest issue with Ghosts is the connection. I live in the Philippines and on BO2 all I ever got was players from Asia matched with me so rarely a terrible connection (although being English a big problem when you cant understand a word anyone else is saying....!)

Now for Ghosts I find I am either a God like nigh on unkillable/killing machine or the exact opposite... I notice I end up in lobbies with US and UK players quite often which never happened once (literally in BO2) anyone else find this at all?

This isnt intended to open the BO2 vs Ghosts debate by the way so please don't take it that way....

Yeah gotta say your subject title pretty much sums it up for me as well.

I'm fed up with the campers in this game, seems to be a lot of them, everything is out of whack.

People running around with sniper rifles, laying half a mag into them to be killed by one shot. Last night 3 team members in a room with one guy, all shooting at him,  yet he comes out on top, all three lying dead WHAT!!

This also seems to be laggy, put BLOPS II back in no problem, can only assume that its the servers or they are punishing those of us who dont have super fast whizzy fibre connection

I brought the Season Pass as well, think I might ask for my money back

Yes the game is more complicated and more balanced than previous, this does not mean its bad or hard to get. It takes time.

The availability of pick and choose perks is brilliant, they improved what Trey did in Bo2. I congratulate them for this.

".. and rushing around for a laugh, has no bearing anymore. There's always some guy in the darkest corner, with a picnic hamper and deckchair, who's spent 3 minutes waiting for ye, polishing his silenced AK-12...."

And why would you just run around for "laugh". Who are you laughing at, at whose expense? Yes running without a clue just for kicks deserves a bullet in the back or stomach or head or what ever. Or you have not learned where people hide, it goes both ways.

Your final comment on "where is bo2" is classic COD give up behavior, we all dealt with what Bo2 dished out, we all dealt with the complaints, the glitches, the latency complaints, the target finder, to have people now come here on the Ghost forum and proclaim perhaps that Bo2 is better is the most (nothing vs you) moronic thing. Sorry, Ghost is better game than Bo2 (different) but much better.
