    When is the attitude to anti UAV/Satcom perks going to end?

      It's an interesting debate actually because its only in the more modern CoDs that these debates have really taken off.

       

      Cast our minds back to the first ever Black Ops, this game did something awe-inspiring it removed Stopping Power which arguably was the most used perk yet the most complained about.

       

      It was like everyone disliked Stopping Power but everyone used stopping power.

       

      Now that this perk was removed we turned our attention to Ghost because naturally other than possibly Flak Jacket this was the most powerful perk in the game protection wise.  

       

      Now Ghost basically acted as off the gird and blind eye combined into one perk. Now this was never a real issue in CoD4, WAW and MW2 even though Ghost was an exact clone of Cold Blooded. Funny eh?

       

      Well now I personally feel that BO2 basically made everything chaotic by the removal of this one perk, now they didn't remove it but they tried to nerf camping and change the perk to running and well what did they get? Camping and complete cluster bomb of bad spawns, constant UAVs and overall chaos.

       

      So overall say we remove or seriously nerf it like Black Ops 2 for the next CoD. What perk we complain about next. How dead silence makes you hard to hear? How Amplify is over powered? How Scavenger gives you too much ammo out of the packs?

       

      The fact is, when will it end? Simple answer? Never.....

       

      The fact is CoD is dying, we are loosing support every game and unless we go back to fun CoDs where balance wasn't needed and everything was OP we are going to end up with such restricting CoD games that other games will look so much better.

       

      CoD needs to return to the old generation of how they did games. Return to the CoD4, WAW, MW2 days and really produce something worth more play because if they don't the franchise will die.

          Its true people will complain about anything and everything. This game its Amplify and DS. As for the UAV problem COD has, all they need to do is remove the UAV completely thus rendering Ghost/Assassin/OTG obsolete, so they can remove it too. They have nearly accomplished that in Ghosts, UAV spam is pretty much dead. They just need to finish it off. 

          Also, COD does not need to go back to doing anything remotely like MW2. I don't care how much fun people had cheating, that game and all of its ideas are officially dead, tactical insertions were the last bad idea from MW2, and now that they have been removed, nothing is left from that disaster. If the franchise dies so be it, nothing lasts forever and we have two successors waiting in the wings.

              I think Ghosts has the whole UAV thing nailed. Satcoms are effective but only if used with proper team co-ordination! I think that is exactly the way they should work, and I honestly wouldn't be upset if this becomes the adopted format for future CoDs. OtG is there to counter Satcom Spam, but its not often you run into a team using them effectively, ergo its not a MUST HAVE perk. I see that as fine IMO.

              I agree totally that they need to simplify the game.  Started a discussion about this awhile back.  I have been saying for the last couple years that mid-season they should release a COD4 like game.  I bet u would have more people online than the current title.

                I don't mind Off the Grind since the Sat Com isn't as power as the UAV.
