After really getting my hours into this, I'm hating the game more and more despite really wanting to love it
The sightlines are a disaster in this game. There's far too many flankable routes, along with very few power positions in this game. There's tons of crannies and nooks, but many of them have a very limited view of things
The simple truth is, people simply don't have eyes in the back of their head, almost every area in this game has 8 different directions you can be shot from.
The maps are far, far too tight and small, so of course the smgs are dominating by far, and I think the smgs are benefiting too much now as a result from the perk as a result from the pick 10 system
In order to balance this, Tryearch incorporated a massive amount of headglitch spots to sit in the back in order to counter the smg styles
I'll give it to Tryearch, they put a lot of thought into this game, if you're still good, you're good, just not as great as you used to be, if you're bad, you're bad, but they really put a lot of thought into leveling the field for the skilled and unskilled
I won't go into lag compensation, but a lot of us can agree it's worse than ever, or at least as bad as when MW3 first came out
The spawns are a big problem too, which I'm not sure can be fixed
Hit the nail on the head TC, The maps are probably the worst in the series. Like you said, At almost any spot on the map you can be shot from almost every angle. It sucks because like you I really wanted to like the game but I just don't and the maps are the main reason.
Good, campers can't hide now and you are forced at actually move through the map with your team.
along with very few power positions in this game.
Good, camping is stupid.
The point of removing camping and ghost was getting rid of the people who sat in dark corners
There's a huge difference in defending your position and controlling power positions with high traffic
Camping does not equal hiding. Especially if I go for the objectives and then want to defend it
As it stands, the average person is running around like a chicken with no head in narrow passages with smgs and every which way being risky. Don't even get me started on lag compensation, its atrocious, I dread 1 on 1 fights at close/medium range.
I wonder why this game brings out all these people that must share their opinions that say the game is bad. New and exciting. Move along folks.
No I like the game actually but it's people like you that take constructive criticism about their favorite game as a personal attack for some reason that eliminates any chance for a mature discussion in this thread.
