I'm a rusher, and when I heard the new Ghost mechanics I loved the sound of it. Now having seen it in use I would just rather it be returned to what it was. When I'm flanking the enemy team Ghost is very valuable but I've found every time I stop to reload or take cover I pop up on the radar anyway. My biggest issue is if your are ADSing and walking/strafing you come up on the radar (Unless you're using stock maybe?)
If you have the stock attachment you won't show up on radar when moving while ADS with ghost.
I feel the same way with ghost. It's great for flanking, but you have to be moving 100% all the time. That is a problem when flanking, sometimes you need to slow down and aim. Sometimes you need to take cover and reload. Sometimes you need to wait for someone to pass so you can kill them.
I've gotten along without it so it doesn't really bother me anymore.
Absolutely should go back to the way it was. In Black Ops I used to run Ghost Pro, Marathon Pro, and run & gun with a shotgun. I was on the move 90% of the time, but there are those moments where you need to take cover to reload, or just be stationary for a moment. Now I have to constantly strafe back and forth to avoid getting blipped by one of the 7 UAV's up at any given time. I guess the corner campers just ruined this perk for the rest of us that used it for its intended purpose.
It should take 2 or 3 radar passes to show you. That way it would still encourage movement, but it would allow people room to breathe. As it stands it's very difficult to wait for someone to turn a corner f say you glimpsed them and you know they're a good player, or if you're screen is all red from the last kill. It would let LMG users reload and snipers rush but still actually sniper and not try to hipfire in panic mode. Reloading, aiming at an open spot before venturing forward, etc would all become safe again.
Tl;dr I'm fine with ghost being movement based but it should delay 2 or 3 radar passes before you show up of you're not moving.
Get it right, do it nice. If you make a mistake, you're gonna pay for it twice. If you need it... got to have it. Get yourself a shotgun and bring it back home
