Input on possible solutions to quickscoping

This is a thread on how to fix quickscoping, not if/if not quickscoping is OP/easy/dumb/good. 

Here is my possible solution.:

1. Keep the ADS time the same as current.

2. Keep the ADS animation the same as current.

3. Keep the accuracy of snipers same as current, such that when the cross-hairs center, the accuracy is the maximum accuracy of the weapon.

4. Have no auto aim until 0.20 seconds after fully aimed.

     The reason: The most popular and easiest way to quickscope is dragscoping.  That is when the sniper aims, and drags his sights across the target, shooting during the drag.  The auto-aim slows the cross-hairs of the gun, making the shot much more likely to hit.  Having no auto-aim for the first fraction of a second will make it so that dragscoping doesn't "cheat" the auto aim system.  This will make it so that very skilled snipers can still pop-shot people, and montage makers can still do their thing.  This will make it so un-skilled snipers realize how difficult it is to quickscope, and will do "mobility sniping" (not camping, but moving around to cover their teammates).

     Hopefully, this will also make it so that people realize that snipers have a lot of disadvantages to them, and people will stop complaining about it.  I have seen no real issues with CoD Ghosts quickscoping at all, because so few people snipe (besides on Stonehaven).  I rarely get killed by snipers, and when I do, I just think to myself "Dang, that guy must be a pretty good quickscoper, or he's hardscoping like he should be."

     Please do not just start an argument on this thread.  Input your ideas, support your ideas with facts, statistics, or likely outcomes, and keep it educated.  I don't want any haters who just say "well that's stupid."

People will still complain about quickscoping no matter what they do to the snipers.  If it isn't quickscoping it is some other thing this bad kids will cry about because they think that they should never be killed by anything.

So when someone complains about something that is obviously imbalanced they are automatically bad... what logic is that?

When this patch comes out a lot of Snipers are going to change their playstyles. Instead of playing aggressively with Quickdraw and an USR, they might play more passively (camp) and use a Thermal L115 with IEDs around them. I foresee that people will begin to complain about the latter type of Sniper when this nerf comes. In fact, they already complain about "hardscoping and "thermal noobs".

The point I'm trying to make is that with sniper rifles being a OHK weapon, people will always complain about them no matter how people play with them. Whenever I quickscope a person they rage. Whenever I "hardscope" I get called a camper. Sniper rifles take a lot more skill than regular weapons. If they are so easy to use and "obviously imbalanced" then why do most people go negative when they try to snipe? Why do competitive players use guns like the Remington R5, the MTAR-X, the Vector CRB, and other SMGs and ARs instead of using sniper rifles? Why hasn't MLG banned these "obviously imbalanced" weapons yet?

I eagerly await your reply.

Players who QS enjoy the challenge- your idea only makes it slightly more challenging (note: I QS'd in BO2 and never used AA at all).

My main reason why it should be changed is because Quick-scoping itself is a game inside of the game. Players try to get clips and will die endless times just to be satisfied by that one great shot(s). I've watched so many streams and videos (montages) of players that care far more about that clip than the match itself. And why wouldn't they? It has a huge following. So instead of making minor tweaks, 'the game of QS'ing' needs to be its own game (or mode) and otherwise removed from standard matches. This way the players out there making ($) off their vids can still do so just not at the expense of obj players.

With that said, we can all think of tons of ways the "quick-scope" can easily be adjusted to prevent further abuse- it just depends on whether or not IW wishes to do so.

Who cares if they are making money off their videos?  They enjoy it.  You should take a couple of pages out of their books if you are having so many problems dealing with a different type of player.

Quickscoping is nowhere near being abused.  It is just a style to play.  People complain about nearly ever gameplay style, because people cannot accept dying...period.

If people aren't playing the objective in objective game modes you have IW to thank for that.  3arc invented the scorestreak system to force objective play and IW bottled it.

The only real solution is to make a snipers only playlist and remove all sniper rifles from all other playlists. Lets see how much fun the quick-scopers have when quick-scopers and campers with infra-red bitch-scopes are all that's in their game.
