I feel guilty, but I now see why people use high killstreaks...

I used to always think it was dumb using high killstreaks. Not because I couldn't get them often enough; I just always thought, "what fun is it letting your killstreaks get so many of your kills?" Also, I've been a proponent of taking out high killstreaks because it makes no sense to reward players who are already owning with tools to let them do even better. But as bad as using high killstreaks makes me feel, I've been having quite a bit of fun since I put on Lodestar. I don't even have Swarm/Dogs unlocked, but I'm already seeing how dominant you can be using the high lethal killstreaks.

K/D has gone up .11 in the first 6 games using Lodestar (I previously used UAV/CUAV/VSAT...I switched CUAV with Lodestar). Here are the scores from the 6 consecutive games:

78-11, 51-3, 77-5, 54-10, 65-3, and 58-13

Now obviously those scores weren't solely due to switching to Lodestar. Needless to say I've been playing some pretty bad opponents, and some of it is due to me playing well also. But still, it's showing something. Out of the 11 Lodestars I've gotten over those 6 games, I've gotten 108 kills from them.

tl;dr: I feel guilty using high lethal killstreaks, but I see why people do it now. I still think they (the high killstreaks) are dumb, though :P

I don't use them simply because I hate it when the other team calls them in. They're all kill ***** streaks that spam spawn kill people and just take away the ability to even play. So, as a sort of courtesy I guess, I don't use them myself. Plus I do admit, I'm not good enough to get them consistently.

I'm careless, but I care.

Yeah, that's part of the reason why I generally am against them as well. I just have been having so much fun, though :( I'm sure after a few weeks or so I'll get bored and the fun factor of watching your killstreak own will wear off...but for now I'm riding the wave.

I used to use that exact setup for K/D raisers but I went to CUAV since it helped with high SPM gameplay. I was trying to hit 400

Eh, they still take away from the game, its no fun to spawn/die/spawn/die

People say "just shoot it down" but tend to forget you got 6 other guys knowing your now on the ropes

I've always been a big CUAV guy. Used UAV-CUAV-Predator in MW2, UAV-CUAV-Blackbird in BO1, UAV-CUAV-AUAV in MW3 (when I wasn't using Specialist), and then was using the aforementioned set-up involving CUAV in BO2 until today.

Ideally for SPM I'd use either VSAT-Dogs-Swarm or UAV-VSAT-Dogs...depends on how good my enemies are. Against better people I'd use UAV set-up instead of having Dogs and Swarm.

What mode do you play? The highest I use in TDM is Stealth Chopper. I could go higher, but it's quite harder to get those at 1200+.

Been playing regular 6v6 Domination.

Yeah, in TDM/FFA I don't think I'd use anything above VSAT. I was using the UAV-CUAV-VSAT setup earlier when I played a few FFA games.
