Last night was terrible. Could only stomach two matches. Both were shoot first die first type of lag, and the second was a complete mismatch so couldn't get anywhere without running into camping since they had everything locked down on dom. Also, what is it with this game's auto aim? I have it set to standard and it doesn't do s*** for me, yet I see kill cams of other people just snap aiming onto me. I know the footstep sounds are terrible but this is behind "hmm might be an enemy to my right" and is like they just pull LT and wham lock on.
Could be people with mouse + keyboard adapters on console. Those adapters people buy still show up and look like a controller even though they aren't. It is a real problem for games like this as it is completely unbalanced (remember, they get mouse control + controller auto aim). I haven't seen much in COD yet, but this has completely ruined the competitive Rainbow Six ranked playlists on console.

The auto aim is not very strong in this game. I often potato aim and completely miss people.

Well that's disappointing. Definitely sketchy because there are plenty of kill cams where the people look like normal aiming, but there are some that no joke look like snap aim. I could imagine aim like that with a mouse but not with a controller.

New patch coming today. A new MP map and another groundwar. 725 shotgun and M4 nerf. Hopefully this makes more weapons viable. Supposedly more crash fixes.

That game I watched you play last night looked like ass to me, FYI. Thanks for streaming though.
That game is ass. I will wait till release but after playing so many 60fps this one hurt my eyes, almost put me to sleep.

Tried the new map, fast paced goodness. I also tried regular Hardpoint. Like that mode a lot better less camping just defense on the objective.

I'm getting killed by all sorts of different guns and tactics now. The new map is really fun too. New patch really seems to have helped the balance. I'm actually watching my killcams to see what gun people are using.

My only gripe is they should have seen these balance issues from the beta. At least they got it fixed.

I still say the FR 556 (Famas) is the sleeper OP gun now. You can 2 burst kill people from range so easily.

Yeah I really like the new map. I picked overkill for it and used the shotgun with the m4 and was picking off people left and right in a kill confirm match.

LOL, I love how you say you get killed by more variety now instead of how useful you find them XD.

People always jump on the M+Kb train, but the simple truth is alot of controller players have insane aim.

One thing I cannot get is killstreaks in this game. I don't think I've even popped more than a couple personal radars. Skill based matchmaking always puts me into these games with level 60+ sweatlords with fully unlocked AK47s while I'm level 31 and don't even have those guns.

Every round is a struggle to go positive. I don't mind SBMM I just don't get why the game thinks I'm really good.

I'm all for SBMM, I hate how top players will farm killstreaks off noobs, but it makes the game hard for me. Feels like the entire other team is stacked every round.

Anyone else thinks this games got attachments overload. Too many useless items.
I hardly use most of them. I put a sight on a gun and maybe 1 other attachment and that's it. Most of them have so many negative impacts.

I got a streak that gave control of a robot tank... By the time I figured out how to use it... I ran out of gas :mad:

Good news is I was hiding in a corner, and when I came back to myself, there was an enemy sniper who didn't notice I was in the room, and I got to blast HIM!

FR (Famas) is still my favorite gun. I’ve gotten good using it up close too.

one thing I noticed yesterday when we played regular was getting more hit markers than normal. A few times someone should have been dead.

This is the first weekend I've seen the same thing. Sometimes I would just empty a gun into someone and it wouldn't kill them. It isn't as severe as past games, but it is getting more noticeable. I was trying out other guns like the Oden and it seems sometimes you can just put 20 shots into someone and they kill you.

This is why the game needs score streaks and not kill streaks, especially for objective based modes. I'm going to throw myself on the point to try and cap it so give me something for doing that instead of just camping for kills.
I’ve always preferred score streak system over kill streaks. It made played objective modes better.

Overall I still really like the game. I have not seen many of the awful netcode issues from the past. Sure, now and then things happen, but it seems in line with other games and at a realistic level.

My big gripe is it still the camping. A squad of 2-3 decides to set up in a building and there's some spots that are basically impenetrable. There's angles you can put claymores where even with the perk to see them, you still can't shoot them without getting too close.

I don't mind the playstyle, I just feel it has too many advantages. Without dead silence active (and it recharges slowly), your footsteps are still way too loud even after multiple changes.

On the plus side I feel the weapon balance is a lot better. I keep changing between 5-6 guns and they all seem usable.
