Please stop all the nerfing

Call of Duty Ghosts XBOX 360

Please stop all the nerfing

I think BO2 was almost perfect when it was first released in terms of weapons. Now in BO2 all the guns were nerfed FAR too much! The smgs were very good weapons BEFORE the nerf, now i find myself getting 5 hitmarkers and still not killing the person. The ARs were awesome before the nerfs, now i get 4 hitmarkers with the majority of them at close range ( im talking barrelstuffing range ). The snipers were perfect before the patch, but now its almost impossible to take out more then 1 enemy before getting killed. ATTENTION COD COMMUNITY! Please stop blaming the weapons for your death! Please take into consideration that it was YOUR fault that you died. Im getting sick of finding a weapon that is perfect for my playstyle only to have it nerfed the next week because a bunch of 12 year olds were complaining about it. If something must be done to the weapons, then BUFF the underpowered ones instead of nerfing everything.

Sorry for my english.

yet here you are complaining you don't do so well because of a weapon.. interestingly none of the nerfs made to the weapons in bo2 would increase the amount of hitmarkers you got... (bar the slight damage drop to the an95, change to fal and smr damage on full auto and the fact pistols  were way over powered and got nerfed)

I dont know i noticed i get more hitmarkers, but that could just be me not remembering lol. But still if the smgs and ARs were as good as they were then how come everyone just uses LMGS and snipers now? Btw pistols are probably the only thing i think deserved a nerf, but everything else i dont think deserved it.

See, here is what you are not understanding.

Your Perception does not always equal Reality. I am not referring to you directly, please don't take offense. All I am saying is that you and I could both look at something and see it differently, or even experience it differently. You might use or see people using the An-94 and think, "Wow, that thing is crazy OP. It kills way too fast.", while I would think it is perfectly balanced, while someone else might think it needs to be more powerful.

Contrary to popular belief... "nerfs" and "buffs" aren't based on Forum Threads, YouTube Videos, or "12-year olds" who were complaining about it. They are based on stats and metrics, and give the Devs a FAR better sense of what is actually happening than what each of us perceives based on our own experience. They can see what weapons are overpowering others and tweak them to achieve balance, which is crucial in FPS. Should guns have a learning curve and handle differently? Of course, but a particular weapon shouldn't give someone an advantage over another player. That should be left up to how the player uses it... or you get a situation like in WaW with the MP40 or MW2 with the UMP45 rendering other weapons obsolete.

Is it a perfect system? It never will be, because each of us experiences the game differently. But as long as they are constantly tweaking and adjusting the game based on their metrics and the reality of what is happening, this is a good thing. It keeps the game fresh... and it keeps the game fair.

I just have 1 question. This happens all the time too. How come when i watch a killcam of someone killing me across the map with a SCAR H it seems to have NO recoil at all, but when i use it it kicks like a fricken donkey.

Your first mistake.... thinking kill cams, are an accurate representation, of what took place.

What mdub said... but also remember they may have different attachments... they may have learned to effectively burst fire the weapon or use the recoil to their advantage.

But mostly, the replays don't always give the best representation, they are just a reference point.

Black Ops 2 killcams aren't capable of showing recoil that's why.

Sorry for my english.


If the weapons were fine.... they would not have been adjusted. Example - SMG + laser = ADS not required.

I agree there shouldn't be as much nerfing as there was in Black Ops 2 but there should be nerfing if their stats show that it's overpowered not complaining garbage that thinks everything should be nerfed. As for buffing if they see in their statistics that a certain gun is losing every gun battle then they should buff it instead of listening to garbage who thinks everything should be buffed. That's pretty much how it should be.
