Since I got diamond for my smg class I'm thinking about doing the shotguns, but I can't stand the M1216 and S12.
I never liked the m1216, but I really ended up loving the s12..and at first I hated it.

The M1216 is my new favorite shotgun. I find that for some reason my Remington has lost all stopping power for at any distance while other people rock me from a mile away.

sounds like my experiences in this game. Last night I had games where I start like 2-10, or spawn take two steps and get shot in the back. Then I had a single round (not full match) of domination where I went 21-0, lol. Even when I have games with 3.0 k/d I feel like I'm doing bad in this game.

After two hours of play tonight, I wasn't in a lobby with someone higher than 1.21 or someone lower than .90. I averaged 1.0 the entire time, either ducking behind walls to have the kill cam put me out in the open or my opponent going down too easily. Seriously. Fix it already.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (November 2012)

so had a weird match...I think a person was cheating. He went 79-0...and he only averages a 1.06 K/D...I watched the game and it seemed like he was moving 3 times faster than everyone, and people were sort of freezing...not lag switch, but a slight pause...so I look up his stats and it is all fucked up...I took 2 picks

the other pick is even more fucked up....

his user name was oXMaverikXo..I reported him...anyone ever see anything like this?

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (November 2012)

so now when a match seems off I have been watching it. I have now caught 3 different groups boosting...reported all of them.. It is shocking to me how often this happens.

ItssMeLucidd96 already looks like he had his stats reset...lol..unless elite is glitched right now.

I usually play solo on Kill Confirmed. I think I'm going to have to switch back to Mercenary. Every time I've played the last week, I've gotten steamrolled by teams. Obviously some of the people playing on the teams are skilled and have way better K/D than I do, but it's pretty infuriating to lose a match like 100-26 and have 20 kills confirmed myself.

Forgive me if posted before, but this was a really good promo (love his reaction to building the furniture)

That video was awesome the monkey scene!

Wife said she'd let me play just because of him.

Great video... but when will we get a patch fixing the lag??? Another frustrating round "now he's there, now he's not" last night.

I assume we'll see a round of updates come on Tuesday alongside the DLC. However, the lag issue could be resolved more through a playlist update more than anything else.

Infinity Ward would've acknowledged, addressed, and fixed the issue by now.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (November 2012)

I've resorted to quitting so many more games than I ever have in previous games. I never quit a game in MW2.

last night I was trying the SMR for the first time and was getting so many one/two hit kills it seemed that I said "this is the best gun EVER!" Of course the next round I couldn't hit a thing.

I just quit until I find a lobby where the lag seems fair.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (November 2012)

tonight the game ran as smooth as I have seen it in a long time...

I can't wait till I am done with the scorpion though....it is not a bad weapon, but the range is just wrong. It wins vs assault/lmg under 10 feet or so, but so does every other smg....but a shotgun will rape it...

They really need to nerf the range of the Remington another 3 or 4 feet. It should kill one shot...but I should not lose vs one at about 15-20 feet when using the scorpion...

They did tweet something about the next nerf being the Remington/pdw/msmc...

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (November 2012)

I have just about stopped playing this game. I tried playing the other night and quit after about half an hour because I was losing so cheaply to Remingtons about 30 feet out while using any gun. I then switched to the Remington and was getting killed from 5 feet out. The lag is a fucking joke.

Play it for a few months then switch back mw3 or blops1 and you will be god mode, not joking

Used the mk48 + target finder + fmj + silencer pretty much all matches tonight. I could pull 2.0 kdr on this no problem going after no objective.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (November 2012)

More frustrating matches last night. I think I quit about 10 games... the biggest rage was when I joined a match with my team down 20-64 and I died instantly (back to back) via Lightning Storms. I took the disc out and put Sleeping Dogs back in... I'll wait until the new maps come out and try again but I've never wanted to love a game more than this and had it crush my soul with what a cheap slut it has become.

I don't understand how they could have screwed up so badly with the lightning storm notifications. I mean you literally get notifications of incoming lightning storms after they have already killed you. How does something like that get through testing? It just screams laziness.

Those deaths aggravate me to no end. Whizz...boom...dead..."Incoming enemy lightning strike!"

I just hate the constant host migrations that eventually throw you back to the menu, thus robbing you of your points.

Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (November 2012)

I've noticed a lot more lobby issues too: you wait 45 seconds for the lobby to load, 2-3 players dop, more jump in, migrate hosts for 5-10 seconds, 2-3 more drop, waiting for more players to balance teams, 2 drop, 4 back in, pick a map, 2-3 drop, 2-3 added, waiting to balance teams.... lobby closed.

Go back out, back in and join the shitty Cargo map where my team is down by 45.

wtf?

Add onto that the fact that if you are in a party you constantly get the "reconnecting to party" message that takes forever to get off the screen, and which means you're pretty much guaranteed to not connect to that party.

Just noticed that the new map pack doesn't include Hardcore. Disrespectful.
