*Official* Multi Platform Poll - Support Killstreaks

Modern Warfare 3 Forum

I like the way you can now comment on all the platforums thread in the recent discussions thread list.

I'm a big fan of this. It brings us all closer as a community and is also able to give us one very large voice to bring to the Devs.

This is a tester thread to see how powerful we all are as one voice.

The Support Killstreak -

Much as I am a very big fan of it, I believe it give all players of all abilities the chance to contribute to the game and team in ways that in previous COD's they perhaps have not been able to.

However

If someone is running the Assualt Killstreaks and you get your AC-130, Helicopter or any killstreak you have earned through consecutive kills....you will find you are not able to call it in should the Support killstreak of lets say the Emergency Airdrop has been call in by the enemy.

As I said, I do agrre with the support Killstreaks, but I would like to put forward 2 points, and would like to see if the communtiy as a whole agree's

Point 1...........They should double the Support Killstreak kills....so 8 for UAV, 16 for Sam Turret Etc, As detahs do not matter, I believe this would add a reasonable balance.

Point 2...........If Support calls in an Emergency Airdrop, and an Assualt person calls in an AC-130, the AC-130 takes priority over the airdrop, even if this results in the Support losing the Airdrop for example.

I would like opinions on this

If you agree with point 1....Like

If you agree with point 2....Comment

This way we can see how we work as one voice.

If you don't agree with either, comment that I missed out point 3 ....which is i'm an idiot lol

Agreed on both points(liked btw)  would prefer to use assualt, but using support  as inconsistant connections mean theres no point for me,hopefully this will be rectified. Agree about making Uav and Sam higher

I haven't put in alot of hours in the mp yet as I have found the connection at my end to be pretty bad, from what I have played with all 3 strike packages I agree that support is slightly too easy for racking up the rewards. I also agree that it is an excellent feature and definitely should be kept, a bump up in number of points to get a killstreak reward seems perfectly reasonable. Perhaps not doubling it, maybe 1.5x what it currently is!! I liked too btw.

@Robster and whyie

Yes, 1.5 times would be good, but I do feel it need addressing

I think they should take out assault type killstreaks from it tho. Stealth bomber and escort airdrop are pretty powerfull killstreaks. Especially the escort, every time i have got one ive always had good stuff drop. Or atleast they should take more points to get.

Also really does suck you can't call in almost half the killstreaks if there already is a chopper in the air, regardless of packge type. Especially the escort, just takes SO long for it to show up then it just lingers around.

I can understand the second point and can agree with that but not the doubling of points needed for Support. They do not need to be any higher because there is not any really powerful Killstreaks in there that help you get to the next one. Assault has predator which gets you the next Killstreak and so on but the Support Package is based mainly on support which do not contribute many kills to the game

I agrre with you ish

UAV is an incredibly powerful killstreak, and for those that get the required 4 kills on the bounce, then i'm happy with that.

I just feel that for someone that gets killed a few times before getting it, it should be made a little higher.....they will still get it, just a little later in the game

So you are saying that for every, lets say 2, deaths you should lose 1 point towards your next Killstreak? Seems semi-fair but would get annoying in the end. If you actually have tried to get the Osprey Gunship in Support it takes quite a while. I usually end on top or at least in the top 3 of the leaderboard and find that I only just make it to Osprey Gunship in a regular game of Kill Confirmed. On a side note, I think it sucks that you only get XP for picking up or denying dog tags in Kill Confirmed.

Sorry, but I disagree this game would be terrible if you could only get one or two spy planes in TDM.  I had almost 14,000 spy planes in Black Ops.  The spy plane and advanced uav are needed to keep the game going.  If you do not know where anyone is there is a lot less movement becuase people do not want to get shot in the back by someone sitting in the corner.

Spy planes are great, and they do help to a degree, but my arguement is why should someone that gets 4 kills and 9 deaths earn the privelage for them and their entire team (running assualt, specialist or support) to see where 4/5/6 of the enemy team are?

I'm not looking to rid it, just make it a little higher
