The Pros and Cons of MW3's Support Package and what can be done to improve it

#1Cow KingPosted 2/21/2013 1:41:09 PM
Pros:
- It rewards players that play to the objective. These types of players are more unlikely to maintain a killstreak because you're vulnerable while capping a flag or planting the bomb.
- When both teams have skilled players, they tend to cancel each other out and no high end killstreaks are ever called out. With the support killstreak, there will be high end killstreaks in these types of matches.

Cons:
- It is somewhat overpowered because of two Killstreaks: EMP and Stealth Bomber. Need I explain why?

Does this board have any ideas to balance the Support Package for players that play the objective and for games where both teams are equally skilled?

The greatest victory isn't by points or kill/death ratios. It's causing your opponent to rage-quit.

Get rid of EMP and Stealth Bomber.

Done.

The support package should be just that: Support.

Stealth Bomber and any other streaks that allowed you to get kills should never have been added.

UAV, Ballistic Vests, etc. are okay in my book.

I never had a problem with Support, and no, I didn't use it that much I used specialist and assault way more.

No brainer yes, but this is just a simplified list of pros and cons. If I actually list all the pros and cons in my head, people will just pick one or two points that enrage them the most, ignore the rest, and post "NO! THERE'S A REASON SUPPORT PACKAGE IS DEAD!!".

but it's so much fun cycling the stealth bombers and EMP's 3 or 4 times in objective game modes :(

BO2 rewards objective players, by giving them much higher score earned from the objective than kills. MW3 rewarded reckless players who could go 20-50 and still get streak rewards.

A player who died 12 times trying to blindly cap a flag doesn't deserve anything.

Pretty much this.

Or raise the emp point requirement.

If you die, it takes 1 kill away from your streak. To get your EMP, you need to be positive with flag caps basically.
