I don't care what anyone says. BlackOps 2 is broken. I am chosen as host 50%+ of the time, so NO it's not my connection. Chances are it's a combination of Lag Comp needing adjustment, and crappy match making by BO2 server.
1. Enemy spawned 10 feet away and killed me. Several times today.
2. Matchmaking is utter crap. Has been so since day one.
3. Lag Compensation is horrible. It can be adjusted. It should be adjusted so that the benefit players are given is minimal.
4. Weapon effectiveness is inconsistent between team and enemy.
5. Shotguns are OP. Handguns are OP. Don't care if you disagree.
VERTIGO - Really? This map is like shooting fish in a barrel, except YOU are one of the fish. Postage stamp map.
MAGMA - Horrible design. The "white walkway" on the side of the map is useless. No one ever fights in that area unless they happen to pass by an enemy. So, it's a waste of valuable map space.
HIJACKED - What the hell. The spawning on this map is by far the worst. In no short part due to the fact that the map is TINY.
DRONE - The name fits. It resembles the drone of a clothes dryer, because of the repetitive camping and quickscoping by players.
PLAZA - Someone dropped some ABC blocks on the floor, and thought that would make a great map. On top of that, for a "night" map it sucks. It's so bright, it barely suggests night.
HYDRO - Another postage stamp map. Part of what worsens spawning is the size of the map. The smaller the map the worse the spawning, because there's little time to think before an enemy rounds the corner to off your ass.
GRIND - Seriously? A skateboard park? Again, another bad design. Most of the time, players end up heading to the tiny little room at the center of the map and fighting.
CARGO - OK. But, got boring fast because of player penchant for camping.
DOWNHILL - Decent map. But quickly became boring and too predictable.
MIRAGE - One of the better maps. Only players don't utilize much of the map. Why, I don't know.
ENCORE - OK map. But, very predictable and limited in choices.
STUDIO - By far THE best map of the entire game. But, that's not saying much since it's simply a remake of a previous, and popular map.
CARRIER - Good map. But, doesn't get picked enough for my tastes.
The rest of the maps are good. Especially STANDOFF, RAID, and YEMEN. Of course this is all JUST my opinion. Bottom line, this is THE worst COD game in my experience. I only wish Ghosts wasn't five months away. I don't think I'll keep playing BO2 very often, unless I hear game issues are fixed. Until then, I'll keep my eyes peeled for Ghosts.
