Oddly enough I got multiple Papas, but no Mamas. Also didn't get any of the epics that come from the box only or the legendary / epic Volk. Those 5 guns refuses to drop

I am shocked people are so angry, but not at the people who implement this horrible scratcher system.

Just looking at it from the simplest money standpoint gets you 1000 CoD points which is basically 5 rare suppy drops, so times that by however many drops people have snagged from the exploit, and that's probably what losses they're running with.

Obviously it's a bit more fiddly when you factor in pure gameplay drops and other things, but I'm sure they aren't bothering with that.

The rage if they were hard-banned from IW and MWR or wiping all their progress / loot / unlocks to the beginning would be hilarious. Granted I missed the glitch window so I'm one of those bitter jerks who didn't get to abuse it.

Personally I think it'll be something limp-wristed like resetting all their stats and nobody will care.

And a theater mode. And human faces. And cover penetration. And Launcher/deployable resupplying with Scavenger. And sub-1300 point streaks that can actually get more than two kills. And good shotguns.

Don't forget memorable gunplay, decent sound design, being able to see detailed info about your connection, and a Combat Record.

I thought this was an impressive enough hit to post.

Speaking of Terminal, I found a disgusting tactic for Tac TDM- maybe even TDM in general.

It feels like the game in general has caught up with how I play. People are picking me out of the air like I'm a clay pigeon more often and watching my usual sneak spots rather than getting blindsided. Last few days were getting annoying so I've switched it up.

No more scav on a four attachment gun. It's two attachments, five perks and no scav OR hardline.

Assault rifle/lmg on armor + man at arms

dex + ghost
tracker
hard + dead.

Essentially running as all but invisible. Contemplated cold blooded over tracker but I'm not sold on it yet. silencer + quickdraw on the weapon and I've essentially changed my movement around the map to its opposite. Get low, lower than instructed in that rap song. use the lowest point of a wall ride, don't jump everywhere to speed up movement, go full boots on the ground unless I need to be in the air.

Basically I'm still out of sight but instead of being very high above line of sight, I'm either below it or behind them. Man at arms cures most of my ammo needs but I can always ust run the flatline with quickdraw and suppressor and get free ammo from the fact that EVERYONE is also running an NV4 variant.

RIP soaring like an eagle with an unsilenced OSA. I do like that these muppet pubbies are adapting over time though.

Zakk saved the entire video, I'll chop the relevant hour out when I get home, there's no point in posting highlights, the entire thing is highlights start to finish.

I'll just say everything we assume re: moral victories, rage induced with anything non meta, and behavior of tryhards with inflated kds, all spot on.

We LOST the first game and I went like .75 the second game. All I was doing was trying for long shots and hunting streaks with the howitzer and, well... They didn't like it. Manpoose and zakk were just hunting headshots, I think voss was the only one using a normal setup.

I think if you had been on and several of us had run actual obnoxious setups like blackouts, they probably would have had an aneurysm.
