They do that then you will see a ton of the next highest scorestreak, and you will complain about that.
It is used a lot cause it is the lowest, plain and simple. --- https://www.youtube.com/user/gamelerp85?feature=mhee My youtube. I just started it, but am making gameplay vids. Nothing special. Check it out.
However they should change the scorestreak system to something in line with what I originally thought PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale was supposed to be about:
You can choose three different scorestreaks, and we'll call them level 1, 2, and 3, respectively. You can attain level 1 and use that, or risk your streak for the next level and use that one instead... or be super daring and see if you can gamble up enough kills to get to level 3, and unleash all hell! >:D
...if that makes sense.
I know there are problems with this logic in the current state of Call of Duty, but I still think it would be an interesting approach. Maybe not an all-or-nothing approach, but maybe every time you die, you lose 50% of your streak that you've built up. --- Currently playing: Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure - Let's Play on my YouTube! :D My Gaming YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/MasterChief3624
