This is what we were told going into the release of Black Ops 2, it had me genuinely excited as I am an objective addict. If it's there, I'm running towards it, k/d ratio be damned. I don't have the accuracy or intuition of Alpha, I don't have the reactions of Syn or Shadow, but I rush that objective like a f**king madman and that's what I offer when gaming. I try and be someone you can all trust to put in an incredible amount of effort to win, no matter what.
Seems like Black Ops 2 should be right up my alley right?
Wrong, Treyarch is a bunch of liars who are as fake as can be.
Why do I say this? Because the leader boards tell the real story of what is going on in this game, you play the objective, it doesn't matter. What continues to matter to Activision and the developers of COD, is kill streaks. You can play the objective all day long, and it doesn't f**ing matter if you aren't getting the high kill streaks
Want proof, I got proof.
Playing with Vette last night illustrates a PERFECT example of what I'm talking about. (Vette, don't take this as I'm picking on you, I like playing with you and greatly value your presence in game. You're a damn good player)
So last night, we're playing domination and this is the score of one game:
I went 22-13 (decent), but had 9 caps and 2 defends......NINE F**KING CAPS....where am I points wise on the scoreboard? 4th. F**king 4th. Even a guy on the other team finished ahead of me, and they got blown the f**k out. Shadow and Vette each had 5 caps, which means I had almost double their amount. Shouldn't that count more than a high kill streak? The guy on the other team had 5 caps also, and only 7 more kills (and 12 more deaths) and he received more points than me, which is total bullshit. I'm busting my ass capping flags to end up fourth to people who did about half as much work as me.
Then I check the global leader boards for domination....
I have 2.5 times the amount of captures as Vette, but he's ranked ahead of me. These stats are for 3 games of domination, btw. Yet again, kill streaks are valued more than the objective. Alpha is ranked below me, but has 16 more captures, that's bullshit too. He should be ahead of both of us, but because our connections can keep us from getting those precious OP streaks, we're where we are.
What about Headquarters?
same result, I have 89 more caps and 126 more defends than Vette, but that doesn't matter whatsoever
Again, I'm not calling out Vette whatsoever, he's a beast, but when game promises to be objective oriented, and obviously isn't, I'm going to be a little pissed off.
