This is the first CoD....

......where I think it is objectively, scientifically impossible to be good at it. The spawns are so horrendous in this game and the damage so insane there is no rhyme or reason to anything - either the game is going to give you dozens of free kills from giving players terrible spawns or spawn kills, or YOU'RE the one the is going to be given the terrible spawns and repeatedly die in ways you have no control over. The difference between 9-25 and 25-9 isn't skill; its "did the game feed me a nice helping of easy kills or was I fed to the other team?"

Even in objective gametypes the spawns are awkward and bad.

I can understand that. Sometimes I think the same thing where things are going "suspiciously well" for a nice stretch, then BAM! out of nowhere the game pulls the rug from beneath you sending you into a spiral of misfortune.

Paragon Fury, I'm not going to sugar coat this at all, I'm going to come right out and say it. It seems like almost every thread or post you make in this forum seems to be obtusely negative. I mean, I'm not trying to be one of those guys that just says "you're bad, quit complaining, you just suck" or something like that. What I'm trying to say is that wouldn't it be simpler and more relaxing to just play a different game that doesn't tick you off left and right?

The spawns have their misgivings, but I am with Clarke. Perhaps this Call of Duty title just isn't suited to your needs.

And I'm going to come out and say it; what the $%^$ else is there to play? Activision got what they wanted; pretty much all other shooters are dead and gone. There were only two competitors left - Battlefield and Halo - and both of them have turned into smoking train wrecks. If you want to play competitive multiplayer you've pretty much got two options left across all 4 systems (Playstation, Xbox, Nintendo and PC) - Call of Duty or League of Legends. Or Starcraft II if you're a masochist. MAYBE, maybe Planetside 2 if you like the taste of clan boot-heel for breakfast.

Counter-Strike? Gone except for the hard-hardcore crowd. Team Fortress 2 - gone, except maybe for Attack/Defend and Escort on peak hours. Killzone? Even the new game has an already-dwindling population thanks to CoD. Gears died with Gears 3 and Judgement was a mess that finished it off. Section 8 - dead. Fighting games basically have no population at this point. Assassin's Creed - they last for a couple of months each, but then die too. Black Flag doesn't have long left in it. All of the Tom Clancy games are dead or MIA.

Call of Duty is pretty much it unless Battlefield or Halo make a major turnaround and get their crap together. And I have every right to complain - I remember when Call of Duty multiplayer was balanced, focused and competitively interesting and fun. But ever since MW2 the series as a whole has taken a dive - and IW's ability to mess things up far outstrips TA's ability to try and make things better.

Well put Paragon. Sums up my thoughts as well. Although, I'm going to buy back some of the older CoDs in a few days and play those. As long as I can find a match and I'm having fun, I'm happy. Ghosts just isn't any fun for me.

If you can give me one example of something BLOPS2 did better than BLOPS1, or any other Call of Duty, I will give you a billion dollars.

Score streak was/is better system in black ops2, all streak awards are better in black ops 2 than ghosts Paragin fury is 100% right

Agreed! well put Paragon. I have played the Cod series sense the 1st PC Game back in the day and I am very disappointed with Ghosts, IW have made a mess of this game!

It feels like its been rushed and no care or attention has been put into it.

Looking forward to Titan Fall and Destiny though hopefully they can out shine the current shooters that out on the market!

Yes. Better streak rewards, such as the hunter killer, Vsat, sentry gun, K9 unit, and swarm?
