I love Black Ops 2. Maybe not as much as Black Ops 1, in fact I don't even know... Treyarch are pretty damn awesome with their games (let's not forget the two Spider-Man games they made!).
However, the multiplayer...putting aside the fact that the lag compensation [for example] just has me saying 'WTF?' when I watch 90% of my killcams, and that everyone is running around with MP7s or Shotguns, I feel like I truly suck at this game.
I'm not the greatest player ever, but I'm one that can hold my own - in Black Ops 1 I always played the objective, I was very aggressive but I knew what I was doing, the maps were nice and expansive and very very well designed. In the first Black Ops I even managed to sustain a K/D ratio of 2.6, which is good for me. And I always play the objective, I stop moving when I have to stop moving, I start moving when I know I can do so, but in Black Ops 2 I just get my ass handed to me and f***** by the hard barrel of a Shotgun/SMG. Don't get me started on the snipers.
I was pretty decent at CoD 1, UO, 2, 3 and 4 and to a lesser extent, MW2 (K/D: 1.8), MW3 (K/D: 1.5) and WaW (K/D: 2.0)
Black Ops 2 I noticed my suckage when I looked at my K/D (1.31) and examined the fact that my usual playstyle in CoD is either not working anymore, or other people are just better. I went back to BO1 and I went 25-1, and then 30-3.
I thought "what the hell" - why am I so crap at Black Ops 2? I did get the game about 5 days ago, I'm not sure if my lack of map knowledge is the reason why compared to everyone else who probably got it on day 1. But even so times when I shoot some guy FIRST they immediately instakill me with MP7 or a shottie.
I feel like every decision that I willingly choose to make; go here, go over there, stop moving, okay you can go now--immediately ends in death. Even if I literally camp because I know someones coming they leap out like ****ing Jackie Chan and butcher me with 1 bullet. Everytime I shoot someone I have to unload half to a whole magazine and sometimes my bullets go straight through them. Am I using crappy guns? I have classes that use Type 25/MTAR/M27/FAL/Vector, and only the FAL seems to be doing damage, albeit when my bullets choose to hit someone.
Honestly! I'm not randomly complaining, there is some weird stuff going on in this game.
Also, I can't hear footsteps too well in this game, anyone know what's up with that? I've instead now started attempting to listen to them [say] reloading etc (it helps but not that much).
I can do better on BO1 with a 2 bar connection than I can on BO2 with 4 bars. I even tested because I'm so flabbergasted as to why I suck so much at BO2. At least I knew why I sucked at MW2 and MW3 (Raining killstreaks)
TL;DR - I suck at CoD now. Or everyone has gotten 10x better.
