How come bad players can't understand why somethings are banned in comp play?

CoD is one of the least skill-required FPS.
But that doesn't mean it requires no skills to be good.
It just means it requires less skills and effort to be good.
As much as it's obvious OpTic isn't the best competitive team, they would absolutely destroy anyone on this board.

The only CoD I really got behind competitively was BO1, but that was because the banned items actually helped speed the game up and make it even more skill-based, IMO.

Since everyone's classes were the same, the only two factors were lag and who shot who first.

Everything requires skill. It's hard to move and look around at the same time for most people, and that's 80% of the game.

But what exactly is banned?

Because casuals are too busy having their mindless "fun" on hijacked and nuketown to realize how poorly balaned CoD games are out of the box

and this is why i'd love to have server rentals.
I'd avoid any server with hijacked and nuketown in rotation.

They'd probably also ban cooking grenades if they could.

MLG's goal is to turn every game into Counter Strike.

Call of Duty has a LOT more issues than just explosives, and judging by their list that's the only issue they really have.

It's a messed up mentality.
Most pros choose not to use the FAL (with or without select fire) even though they believe it's the best overall gun in the game due to their belief that it's OP and cheap to use it. Now...there's a million dollars in line and it's allowed to use it. I have no idea what the **** is going on in their heads.
