DLC weapons now restricted in eSports, but not MTAR-X?

So I was just going over the 4.22 update and I noticed they finally restricted the DLC weapons. While I can understand restricting something such at the Maverick-A2, I don't understand why they would choose the restrict the Ripper and not also restrict the MTAR-X as well. I can understand that they would choose to restrict the DLC weapons because they are part of the DLC and not everyone bought them, but that to me takes out the fun of playing the Clan v Clan playlist since I really enjoyed using the A2 and I use the Ripper all the time as a run-n-gun. I really want them to introduce a Barebones playlist, no killstreaks whatsoever, or a Specialist-only playlist without the eSports restrictions.


Thoughts on the new eSports restriction? Also, I welcome discussion of the eSports rules in general as I find the playlist rather fun to play and have a character with loadouts dedicated to only that playstyle.

Its the e sports ruleset, why in gods name would they ban the most used weapon in competitive COD? This thread makes no sense lmao. They needed to ban the DLC weapons a long time ago since theyre banned in actual comp. play.

This post is silly.

play pub lobbies if you want to use cheap shit guns.

the mtar is/was op but it was in from the start and is like pat said the most used gun.

e sports is fine the way it is, if anything they should make them more strict.

but stupid post none the less

The Barebones playlist wouldn't be such a bad idea if it replaced Drop Zone or one of the other niche playlists.

They were banned because of how easy they are to use and esports and CvC is about greater skill and not abusing easy weapons for easy kills. So no they need to stay banned for that very reason alone. In fact there is a lot not banned that should be for those rulesets in truth.

And yet the MTAR-X is one of the easiest guns to get kills with...

The advent of playing based on skill is sort of nullified when you don't play on a LAN or a Dedicated Server...

"Oh, you're the host? Well, it's just a crapshoot now!" just like basically every other game lol

While I respect the eSport ideal and community, this game connecting like it does, and offering eSport playlists.. is comical considering I could be host, but soon as Netflix downstairs connects, well so much for "skill" and "talent", guess you'll have to rely on "hopes and dreams" and "blind luck" lol

huh? the mtar is the easiest and most abused weapon in the game. it takes no skill to use the mtar at all nothing but easy kills with it thats why everyone uses it. greater skill? not with an mtar.

By far not the most abused weapon in the game or almost every lobby would be filled with players only using it and nothing else.. yet had seen many lobbies where not even a single mtar was used at all for hours of game play.

easy yes, op no, skill-less no, still have to aim and control what recoil it does have even be it little.
