No matter how good you were with the weapon you had a bullet go in a random direction for the first 1.5+ seconds after ADSing. Even at "long ranges" you couldn't even ADS and hit a target moving across the screen. There is a reason why this was patch many times to make the snipers somewhat useful, apologized for, and has never been seen again.
I could use the snipers in bo and get kills easily even if the target was moving across the screen. It was not hard to do and I am just an average player before it was ever patched. the patch made snipers to easy to use really.
Thats a statement that carries more weight than that developer probably realizes, but I'm sure they will address it strongly after looking at BO2 and the state of the franchise. Treyarch overnerfed snipers in BO1 and made up for it in spades in BO2. IW isn't known for fixing problems in COD, more like creating them, but it is looking like a role reversal now. COD doesn't need quickscoping to still be COD.

Enough said right there. They could easily miss something important and everyone will be using the Marksman rifle class and quickscope rather than the sniper class.
Well, after BO2, they need to do something, and removing Aim Assist is not enough. Marksman class is going to dominate HC already as it is.
HC is going to suck. I am definitely not looking forward to another year of OP ARs and Ballistic Vests.
Well, I'm not even committing to buying the game until they tell us whether or not Ricochet is included. And yes I agree about the Vests, I was extremely disappointed to see not just support streaks, not just lethal support streaks, but the UAV > BV combo is back. All they really need to do at this point is say yes to Ricochet and I'm walking away from COD.
To be honest, I am really only buying Ghosts to hold me over until Destiny and Titanfall release. I am not even sure if I am going to get the Season Pass(or any DLC) this year, which I have been getting since WAW. It isn't like I didn't enjoy MW3's HC SND but I really hope that "Sitrep Pro" isn't back and that the Ballistic Vests are not game breaking again. I rather get tubed off my spawn than to ever have to use Ballistic Vests again.
