Phase Shift is pretty fun to use offensively!

https://giant.gfycat.com/DetailedPaleBream.mp4

EDIT: Full patch notes. I thought my shot was a little off this afternoon with the RAW but that was because of the patch. The recoil increase is noticeable but not a big deal, especially if you're using the VMC. R3K is now out of the trash tier, and the Volk felt decent again though I haven't had much time with it.

quote:

Zombies in Spaceland

Update to kick timing

I believe I am now no longer in the presence of nice people.


Good matches we had tonight. And by good I mean "An absolutely fun time hearing everyone go MOTHERFUCKER or some variant".

Also, fun fact: Overkill lets you take two of the exact same weapon. I think I was just giddy with delight when I realized I can spray my FHR-40's extended stockpile mags, then switch to my other Extended Stockpile Mags having FHR-40. Same with the NV4, and the Titan.

Now is it practical? Uh... not in my hands?

Not enough of an NV4 nerf, but hey, anything to tone that loving gun down.

Saw a lot more KBars tonight, which is a huge improvement over the last week of NV4rfare.

Rest of the gun changes are cool, just about everything feels usable.

I had a gigantic string of 2.0+ games with the DCM8 and Reaver tonight and golded the DCM8 At one point half of the enemy team switched to shotguns

Good news: fixed my scuf.

Bad news: already ordered a new one.

Worst news: whenever I go into create a class I get the error "unable to look up table 'mp/loot/weapon/iw7_arvlassic.csv' in the fastfile" so the OSA is literally so broken it broke my loving game.

Great

E: oh they nerfed it. Well good now please fix my game because I can't play multiplayer anymore.

I am in version 2 of "turn it off and back on again" in my live chat with Activision support and when I close my eyes I see world's burning.

Completely ignoring that I told them I tried this and even deleting and reinstalling the game.

E: We're on to version 4 of "turn it off and back on again" but this time we're up to 5 minutes powered off.

I asked why this when we've literally done this 4 times already with power down times of 2-3 minutes and how 2 more minutes will help, but apparently it's the last step and then it can be pushed to the higher up team who will be laughing uncontrollably about me doing this 5 loving times when blatently I just need loadout 1 clearing.

edit 2: ok I am now on with my second activision agent as the first one said I had to recontact them rather than just loving tell them the last thing didn't work.

e3: if they thank me for one more thing I'm going to cry

ed 4: ok now I am essentially starting over with a new person but have a cool support code that I can use to tell them apparently gently caress all

e 5: this guy fixed it in about 5 seconds and now I am questioning why I spent 30 minutes in various states of "turn the PS4 off whilst singing" and "clear the cache of your turned off PS4 with only the power of Kabbalah."

e 6: new guy told me to have fun on the game and rock some players, he has taken all my anger away with his charm

A dope rear end gun given to the loyal.

I just got the Phantoms epic taunt in a free 10 key supply drop and it is pretty cool. Uses his gun to shoot down a plane or something. Reminds me of the epic taunts from blops 3.

I can't even get my hate mail addressed to me; it goes to revo instead.

Here are post-patch stats. As an aside, I got the Spearhead R3K variant out of a box last night, and while the Rapid Fire is nice, there is significant recoil within the burst. You trade the ability to pick people off from headglitches and distance for close-range proficiency.

You couldn't really do that with the base R3k, so the spearhead is basically better.

If the Hailstorm was pink and akimbo that was me on my way to aquiring the space dog calling card. Everyone who still plays IW has to get that calling card.

Looks like that rainbow zebra camo. I have it for ARs. It's not nearly as good looking as the emblem for it is. It's just too dark.

The lethal blast radius on the launchers are such a loving joke after the last two patches. You can hit literally right beside people and they won't die.
Gotta have that MLG balance at all times, I guess.

Advanced Warfare brought me back to Call of Duty thanks to the Gung Ho perk - i'm the rear end in a top hat who tries to play CoD like its Quake.

I only played a handful of BO3 because the campaign was so horrifically awful.

Infinite Warfare's got me back on the needle again. All I really need is sticks and stones to return, then I'd truly be the happiest.

From my laypersons eyes I can't see a huge difference between IW and BO3 in terms of playstyle.

I get burnt out on the yearly churn, but every so often COD hooks me back in. I prestiged in the first Modern Warfare, then hated MW2 due to killstreaks being overpowered (in my eyes). Black Ops brought me back, particularly with the brilliant hourly and daily challenges. Happy to see a version of these back in IW.

Modern Warfare 3's ability to play as support and actually USE some of the killstreaks kept me happy. Black ops 2 went for some bullshit score-based killstreaks, which meant that i never got to use any killstreaks whatsoever since I mainly play Free For All (with the occasional jump into objective based modes. Don't like TDM much at all.)

My tastes are very different than most, admittedly.
