    Limit Killstreak by Game Score

    M4GNUM

      Overall game score - not match score.

       

      I wish at some point, the developers would create something whereby if you reach a certain game score - like 200,000 that you can no longer use a killstreak. Like IED or Squad Mate. That way veteran players could keep getting challenged and new players would have a better chance and continue the game instead of quitting because they are getting stomped. I'm not saying this as a person who sucks at the game and everything is unfair...I've already 10th Prestiged and I'd totally be up for having some of my Killstreaks being taken away because my overall game score is high. I think it would level the playing field.

          call me crazy but i dont think i should have loadouts limited. if your skill has improved and you want more challenge, switch, thats all. somebody complained about op sentrys in extinction, well dont use em! not everyone is into leveling up guns/camo, cant force them to.

              not to mention there are patches and loadouts to work on, and this idea would nullify them.

               

              edit - if you are interested in some different game modes like extinction or safeguard hit me up with a request. no wonder you guys get bored. try something different. my first few matches of safeguard i got owned, but now im having a lot of fun there. same with extinction. i really wasnt diggin it at first, now im at or near top ten on every board. it always helps to have a friend show you the ropes. like i said, request me if ya want.

                I have a tendency to only think in terms of Hardcore where everything is limited and I think it should be even more limited. I also don't run secondaries, tacticals, or lethals. Granted, not everyone does or should play like that, but I though it'd be a cool way to tweak the game.

                Terrible idea. I imagine you made this thread because you were upset about getting beat in a match. Like in all your posts, everybody is playing unfairly except you, right? Plus you contradict yourself too, you talk about giving new/pauly type players a chance but how are they ever going to be good if they never get challenged themselves? Giving them free handouts won't help.

                 

                IW/3ARC should just remove killstreaks altogether from future CODs, put more of an emphasis on actual "skill" instead of free kills from the computer. Actual recoil+lower damage would be a pretty cool story too.

                        WTF are you talking about? I even said, " I'm not saying this as a person who sucks at the game and everything is unfair." I said I'd be for having my own killstreaks limited. Can you not read?

                         

                        I agree that killstreaks should be eliminated, but I can't even think about because of how big a douche you are on every post. You're getting as much respect as Castiel.

                            Why else would you make a thread about how better players should be "challenged"? I've seen and played with you before and you're not one of those guys that lays down the streaks.  It's obvious that you put that sentence in to cover up, especially with all the detail. "I'm 10th prestige..." and so on and so forth.

                             

                            On top of that, most of your threads are about how stuff is "noob" and should be nerfed just because they're hard for you to counter, or how the connection is supposedly unfair for you but not everyone else, or all your posts about how you "just want fairness and balance". Why would this thread be any different?

                             

                            Also, Why would I care about the respect of random dudes on the internet? Boohoo some strangers don't like me! lol

                                How's life James? Haven't see you in months wanna get some bo2 this weekend?

                                  You're an idiot.

                                   

                                  1) I do think veteran players, including myself, should be challenged. I personally don't think people who are a certain score level should have access to the same things beginners do. I thought it would be a unique way to add some change and challenge in Hardcore as well as get more players to play since there is a different learning curve on this game. Has nothing to do with "laying down streaks" and has nothing to do with me having any sort of problems with players or equipment in this game.

                                   

                                  2) Most of my threads? I've said the squadmate is OP. I've said IED is noob. That's it.

                                   

                                  3) None of it is hard to counter. I've explained several times I have no trouble countering dogs when others do. I have no trouble countering IEDs due to blast shield. I don't have a problem with them and I don't get killed often by either.

                                   

                                  4) I do want fairness and balance in controllers. As far as the game, are you suggesting that a 10th prestige using certain streaks against beginners is fair? Derp, derp. I think differently. I like challenge. Why else do you think I always get stuff like gold/diamond, masks and camo? I don't just use one gun on every map.

                                   

                                  5) I have yet to play with you on Ghosts and I consider myself a good player. People like/want me on their team. My average score isn't much lower than yours. I do get streaks.

                                   

                                  6) You do care. Otherwise you wouldn't troll so much like someone who never got enough hugs from his parents.

                                I hate to be that GUY but I played against you a couple of months ago and you called hax and left the game dom on warhawk :/

                                    You are that guy because I would never call "hax" on this game because I'm not an idiot.

                                     

                                    More importantly, as I've stated on several threads before, I've played Domination once. On Whiteout. The one game freeze I've mentioned several times.

                                     

                                    Nice try, troll.

                                        Not trolling at all I played against you and some of your buddies and you did accused me of hacking you even reported me :/ if you ign it's the same as your forum name it was indeed you I had a blast that night

                                            1) You can't hack the Wii U, so why the hell would I report you?

                                             

                                            2) If you troll ingame - I report you. If you glitch - I report you. If you boost - I report you. I've never accused anyone of hacking with the Wii U. Nobody, including you I imagine, is good enough for me to call a hacker.

                                             

                                            3) Probably only one of my other friends will get out of Hardcore to play Dom. Everyone in my clan and most all of my friends hate regular core with a passion, let alone anything other than team death match.

                                             

                                            Like I said, nice try troll.

                                                I guarantee you I'm not trying to troll I played against your guys with 2 friends and we stomp all over you and yourself and your teammates accused of hax even called me a lag switcher

                                                    I don't know how to tell you differently in order for you to understand. I guess I could draw a picture and post it here or something, but I have never once accused anyone of hacking because I'm not an 8 year old squeaker...I know the Wii U COD hasn't been hacked so why the hell would I say that? I didn't. Not only that, but me playing domination is laughable. I don't particularly like that mode. I know what lag switching looks like and I haven't seen it on Ghosts. Yet. So I wouldn't say that either. The only thing I say (too much) is how the lag can be. I do whine a lot about that in-game.

                                                     

                                                    So...you are either a troll or not recalling correctly. I'm hoping for the latter.

                                                Funny thing is, the veterans are the kind of player who quit the most

                                                Many players seen as "avarage" have low statistics because they accept the fact that losing and failing is part of the game too.

                                                But that's a different story... back to topic:

                                                I think it would already help if the game design goes back to the point where prestiging actually means losing progress and starting all over.
