Turns out sound whoring cannot be countered in the final build

Are decoy grenades in this game in the first black ops they were fun to use on the type of players who only played on one room/corner of a map and hid there the entire game listening for people coming.

This is unrelated but they need to decrease bomb defuse time to ~3s

Why do people insist on calling "listening to the game sounds" "sound whoring"? I do have a headset, but I don't always use it and can hear footsteps just fine through my tv speakers.

What? No. 5 seconds is perfect for pubs, maybe a little on the short side.

For Demolition.. maybe.

LOL WUT

Are you crazy?

Edit: if you're talking about SnD that is. If you're talking about demo I could see it.

I think SnD players kinda need to get over it and understand that CoD isn't exclusively catered to them.


yep they just need to go play Counter strike

Guys, skill does not counter an 80+ dollar accessory. Try and understand this.

It's like telling a guy playing on a 20 inch SDTV to get better at seeing things in the distance to counter a guy playing on a 40 inch LED HDTV.

Fact of the matter is that things like TV's and headphones give an advantage.

Skill can counter disadvantages, but only to an extent. The skilled player will lose every time against the mildly skilled corner camping nerd with Awareness who's just waiting for players. Knowledge is power.

Yeah, to an extent. Usually not a helpful one. Typically anyone that will drop 170 on headphones is great at the game to begin with. Giving them that advantage is just pissing in cheerios.
