    Vonderhaar thinks footsteps were TOO LOUD ON BO1


      David Vonderhaar said on Reddit yesterday that he thought the footsteps were too loud on BO1 so it was toned down on BO2. I want your opinions, guys. I say they need to amplify it on the first title update.

      For David.

      Hey David, thanks for doing this AMA! I have a few questions

      1.) Do you have any plans on putting Nuketown 2025 in the core match rotations instead of just being in it's own playlist?

      2.) Are there any guns that people are already complaining about how "overpowered" they are?

      3.) A lot of people (on this /r/blackops2 at least) are having problems where we seem to be shooting guys with plenty of time to kill them, but then they whip around and kill us in a fraction of a second. Woody's Gamertag even released a video talking about how he was having some bad luck with lag compensation. Is there any plans to patch this or is it something we just have to deal with? I don't think it's hard to deal with, you just mess with search preferences and put it to "best" instead of "normal". But it'd be nice if there was a patch.

      4.) Why were footstep sounds decreased significantly? Was it so that people had to use the awareness perk to get that advantage or to cut back on people "sound whoring"?

      5.) You're the best CoD dev ever, I love how much you support the game and listen to the community. Most of all, I love how much DIFFERENT Black Ops 2 feels than other CoDs. I realize this isn't a question, just wanted to say it.

      1. Not right now. I would never say never.
      2. Too early to tell. I see people fighting over the "best" - that's fine with me.
      3. We are monitoring. Nothing yet. I've been mostly 3 and 4 bar with no issues.
      4. They are certainly cut back from Black Ops as a percentage of the mix. It's always seemed to me that they were overly loud. Personal opinion only.
      5. Thank you. That's very generous.
