    I'm digging it so far. In the overall big picture, I'm still a bit new to COD multiplayer. I played the campaigns for all the games, but didn't jump into multiplayer until last year with MW3. I ended up putting over 621hrs into it and have since become a bit of a COD nerd. In the first few months I was terrible. By the third month I was negative 6000 kills and had a 4.9 K/D. But, I came back and while my K/D wasn't great I ended playing MW3 with a positive K/D and was 17th prestige.

    My start with BO2 is better to say the least, my K/D is positive and my W/L isn't bad, not great, but not that bad. Considering I play Lone Wolf I'm off to decent start.

    Now, I can't speak on every aspect of the game. I do feel comfortable giving my 2 cents on a few aspects of the game. First the maps, which are pretty cool, atleast at the moment. There are no maps I dread playing, atleast not yet. Second, the weapons. I can only speak on the SMG's, because they are all I use and so far they all seem pretty good. In MW3 there were a few that were just useless, here all of them seem usable, but time will tell.

    For the new additions to BO2. I love the Pick 10 system. I've only had the game two days now and haven't unlocked everything yet (I'm level 42). So I'm still toying with it. Right now I'm running MSMC with 3 attachments (surpressor, Lazer Sight and Adjustable Stock). Perks are Light Weight, Hardline, Toughness and Dexterity. No secondary, Tactical or lethal nades. The Kill/Score streaks seems balanced and nowhere near as annoying as MW3.

    A few complaints though. Lag Compensation is still a bit wonky. Even setting search preferences to Best doesn't guarantee a lag free game. But, it is still better then MW3 and I'm sure it will be worked on and patched in the next few weeks.

    The other problem I have is the scoring system in Kill Confirmed. KC is all I play. The main reason I bought BO2 is because they were bringing this game back. I had put 545hrs into this game type, was in the 1% in the world and at one time ranked in the top 1400 players when I was playing alot. This is my game mode to say the least. My problem is when you pick up your tags (or others tags) you get 100 points, but when someone else picks up your tags you only get 25(or is it 50?) what this does is create tension amongest teammates as to who gets the tags and people just running around not getting kills and just stealing tags. In MW3 who ever picked up the tags got the same points as the person who got the kill. I understand with the points being so high to give equal points would be a bit unbalanced, but it is a minor complaint and something I'll have to get used to.

    Overall I'm enjoying the game. It is fast paced like MW3, but feels more polished. The graphics are pretty (for an old graphics engine atleast) and not ugly and drab like BO1. We will see how I feel about the game in the next few months when the Honeymoon period is over. But for now I'm looking to get my stats up and get back on the leaderboard for KC.

      I wish they'd get rid of the whole K/D ratio. I think it really takes away from the game. Most of the matches I join in any of the COD games has most of the people not even playing the objective because they don't want to ruin their precious K/D ratio.

        I agree to a certain extent. Alot of the time it isn't a true reflection of a player. Between, guys who only run around in clans, campers, rage quitters ect. it really doesn't mean much. On the other hand I'm sort of proud of mine. I play lone wolf, don't camp and rush like a mad man. I run around like a chicken with its head cut off. My son (who is pretty good in his own right) would tell me to slow down when I first started, but slowly I developed my style of play into a positive thing. I never rage quit and my stats are a true representation of my skill level. Right now I'm at a 1.167 (almost a 1.2), not great, but I'm still new to the game and hopefully they will go up. I don't have set routes I run yet and I'm not to familiar with the maps. I've had some really great games so far, but I've also had some really bad games going negative. But, I just take my lumps and try to do better the next round.

        BTW, I'm waiting for Dec. 26 when all the Christmas noobs jump on. My stats will hopefully climb a bit.

            Looking forward to this weekend now. I'll be at it for hours, I get way too sucked into multi.
            Spawns are still a little wack, but it's not near as frustrating as MW3 was. And if you're lagging, you can change your search preferences to find the best connection possible. So happy about that.

            i like search but you don't get that much points in this one like previous games
            The score you see pop up in game doesn't count towards your real XP. So, if you play search you're still getting 500xp/kill they just don't want the score streaks to confuse people.

            Put "2 Fast 2 Furious" in B&W and Se7en thinks he's watching a Bergman film.
            I find the Metal Gear Solid series to be mediocre at best.

                I made it to my first prestige last night. I started to play like shit right afterwards though. I'm not sure if it was because I didn't have all of my equipment or I was just tired.

                I was wrong in my original post about all the SMGs being usable. I went back to the MP7 after my prestige and it is shit.

                Anyone else run into alot of knife only wannabe OnlyUseMeBlade guys? These guys crack me up. Last night there was 3 of them on the opposing team and they just kept running at me. I would just strafe and shoot. I felt like I was playing DOOM. It was actually alot of fun and I had a real good game that round.

                  I only care about K/D on TDM and FFA. If I play other games modes I'm usually negative but I'll have a ton of caps/defends/etc. My style of play totally changes and I use different classes for different game modes.

                      It's been posted on Vahn's twitter numerous times over the past few days.

                      And the few times I've played search I've still gotten the average amount of XP I've gotten before.

                      MP7 is actually a great gun if you run Grip/Silencer. And aside from that the Scorpion, MSMC and PDW are fucking amazing guns.

                        The MP7 is useable, just when compared to the other guns it just seems like you have to put in a bit more work. Going from the MSMC to the MP7 took some adjusting.

                        Is anyone else digging the pistols? Not only do they feel good IMO, but they also do work (!). I've recently been using the Type 25 and a pistol (forgot the names, Ive been switching between two of them) secondary and I've been actually using the pistol the most. The funny thing is I don't think I got one pistol kill in MW3, now I'm going on small kill streaks with them.

                          If you're thinking about the 3-round burst pistol, I'm with you. Such a good gun.

                            Loving the fuck outta Black Ops 2 since I think Treyarch makes the best CoD games. Since Ghost was nerfed to shit, everyone now overly relies on their mini map and its hilarious. Hence my main class:

                            Type 25 (Looking all sexy with the Cherry Blossom camo)
                            Silencer
                            Ex Mags
                            RDS
                            Primarary Gunfighter
                            Perk 1 Greed
                            Ghost
                            Lightweight
                            Cold Blooded
                            Extreme Conditioning

                            UAV/Hunter Killer/C-UAV pointstreaks

                            Ive pulled several games with 20+ killstreaks easily since no one knows Im around. Kids getting all

                            EDIT: Also seems guns are far more balanced this time around and having Domination split into two rounds is fucking brilliant. Good teams will still stomp but now it makes for better games with the flip and even teams.

                            Additional sidenote: The AN94 is fucking insane

                              Yeah this game is the best installment for sure!

                              Not sure if I got better overall at COD or they just leveled the playing field more than ever.

                              Using the SCARH exclusively now....It was my equipment unlock for the first prestige.

                              Also, really loving the tranzit zombie map!
