Hardpoint?

Call of Duty Ghosts XBOX 360

Hardpoint?

   I've  been watching EVERYTHING revealed about Ghosts, and two things that I'm concerned about still haven't been addressed.  One, will hardpoint, arguably the best competitive game mode in CoD history, be returning in some form to Ghosts?  And two, will league play be back.  League was probably the only good thing about black ops 2, and if it doesn't come back, I feel Ghosts might suffer in sales.  What does everyone think/expect?

Hardpoint.. arguably one of the most campy game modes ever. LP a total failure and not worth coming back. With the new blitz and cranked game modes Ghosts will not suffer any sales loss because of the lack of either of those two things. Plus Ghosts has a new clan system that basicaly takes the place of LP.

Clans couldn't be less like League Play.  Hardpoint was only campy when people sucked.  Good kids PTFO.  League definately wasn't a failure.  It's a place for people to go when they don't want to play pubs.  Seeing as pubs takes about as much effort as fighting a toddler, it's great.  CoD pubs aren't hard.  If you can't run a 3+ K/D, you're just not very good.  The game is easy.  Competitive is the only good thing.  And Clans is nothing like league.  League is competitive, but can be played solo with randoms.  In clans, you are REQUIRED to have a group.  Plus, the game modes are TDM, KC, and DOM.  Two of which aren't in competitive, and are all about camping.

LP was a failure considering no more than ever that played in on a daily basis. the ranking was a failure in how it placed many people in masters or platinum that did not belong there. hardpoint was very campy, just as bad as hq or ctf ever was. LP should have required groups as well and that is where it failed the biggest for it would have cut down on the quiting.

LP was not cometitive at all, seen lots of bronzes go up against masters and beat them, seen lots of irons smash golds and platinums as if they were nothing.

I have seen games be more competitive in pub matches then ever was in LP where games went down to the wire and only lost by 1 point difference, not something normally seen in lp if ever.

Competitive is what is ruining Cod not making it better. if mlg or gb wants a place to play they should hire a developer to make a game just for them with only what they want in it instead of piggy backing off of other games instead. But they wont for it wont sell that well compared to normal games like CoD.

We must be playing different league....  I have never, NEVER seen a bronze, Iron, or even gold even come close to wrecking MAsters.  Hell, I've never even seen a gold go positive in a game against masters.  If you don't think league is competitive, you're high.  I usually only go 5-10 positive in league.  In pubs, it's been two months since I've played a game of pubs without dropping a swarm.  TWO MONTHS!!  I've never lost a pub.  NEVER.  How can you say pubs is more competitive, when 50% of players are just there to stomp.  Unlike league, pubs has not skill based match making.  I always run pubs with a party.  That being said, I don't play with anybody below a 3 K/D.  So, a party of 6, with K/D's ranging from 3.00, to the highest I know, 5.26.  We get matched with kids running a range of .75, to 1.50.  Never find similar opponents, always bad kids.  ALWAYS.  Pubs takes no skill at all.  Most of the people that play it are bad.  If you grab a damn B23R, you can run 50 plus kills a game.  70 plus with lethal streaks and an SMG.  But unfortunately, probably 90% of CoD players suck, so competitive is ridiculed.  Competitive is the only fun thing.  I like a challenge.  Being able to spawn into a game, pick up a Skorpion, and go 70-6, which I just did two minutes ago, isn't even fun.  It isn't hard.  Kids can't kill you, they just snipe, or suck with reg guns.  GB, eSports, and League are the greatest thing ever to happen to CoD.

You are an absolute idiot... i cant think of anythinf nicer or fairer to say. You make your self sound like your the king of CoD. Me and my clan this, me and my clan that. Yeah you might be good, but to say you get a swarm every game and you have NEVER lost a public map his utter bull.

Your the kind of fanny that gets all your little clan to sit on the fountain in slums covering all area, or sitting on top floors on standoff.... dosent make you good at the game it just means you know how to camp well. Thats not big or clever. Any 1 can go buy a modded pad so they lay down after every shot, or turn every gun to an automatic.

If you were that good Billy Big Balls, you wouldnt be sat here telling us how good you are, the CoD community would already know who you are.

Don't camp.  I play the objective.  And I haven't ever lost a pub.  However, I've only played 100 matches in pubs.  All Dom.

I lose in league, but not pubs.  I play 1-2 pubs whenever I get on, just because they suck, and I only get on once or twice a week.  And if the CoD community knows everybody that is good, tell me, have you ever heard of captain obj?  Nope.  You haven't.  He has a 5.1 K/D, and nobody knows him, because being good, doesn't make you famous.  You have to put yourself out there, and we don't.  We just play.  Pubs are easy to win.  And I am in no way the king of CoD, but anybody can be the king of pubs.

i agree Hardpoint was rubbish more about spawns than skill, no game mode should be like that,

Part of the skill was knowing how to influence and hold the spawns. Their was an entire role dedicated to it.
