    THE SLATE IS CLEAN.

    One thing I have been noticing lately is that when I play late at night / early morning, my game will start to fill with Japanese people. Then after 4 or 5 of them enter the game, the host randomly migrates to one of the Japanese people, thus giving their entire team 4 bar and everyone else 2-3 bar. It also seems that if you play a game of sabotage with Japanese people and put down a Napalm, the napalm falls to the ground and then dissapears doing no damage - this happens EVERY time a Japanese person gets host, 3-4 times a game.

    Anyone notice this happening when people of another origin country nab the host?

    So after having the past two days off from work due to that perfectly-timed pairing of storms here in MA, I can say that I absolutely LOVE the new maps. They can be a bit too much for TDM sometimes, but for Demo/CTF, they are absolutely perfect.

    Also, I managed to get attack dogs twice. I have never gotten 11 kill streaks before. Ghost/SoH/Ninja all pro is so, so nice.

    Fawst stole my post! Well, minus the attack dogs and ghost parts. I still haven't earned attack dogs. I should really try that sometime. I could've stolen an enemy care-package with attack dogs the other day, but some trollingdickbagfacepoohead* re-rolled the care-package on me.

    New maps are awesome though. I just need to get Stadium figured out. I think its that I have trouble keeping track of the sight-lines near the B-point. There are just so many places to get shot from right there. Maybe I just need to avoid that area altogether. herpderp Volatile smrt

    I'm without internet until next week and I didn't even get to try out the new zombie map yet.

    On the plus side, I'll be getting 20mbps down and 2 up, where I was getting 2 down (on a good day) and maybe 500-700kbps up before. All for less money than I was paying.

    Hopefully, that'll make playing online less of an excersize in frustration.

    Here's a little clip of me doing work with the Olympia (LW/SA/Ma). Had to cut off the first two kills because of time constraints (fucking stupid 30sec limit, the bastards couldn't have made it 45sec?!?). Nothing particularly amazing, but it was a nice 10 kill run.

    Kowloon is both awesome and terrible. While people don't get much from camping on that map, there are so many nooks and crannies that stupid pubs still try to do it and can make terrible boring games of "Find the random guy in the random corner." Vyn, Sanguine and I had a particularly painful 3 on 3 with some terribad pubs --> we spent most of the match never finding them -- not even sure they were hiding, the map is just too nooky and cranny. But when it's a full match, and for Dom, I love it, especially everyone who goes down a zipline and then gets shot by me.

    all the new maps I've played so far are totally awesome.

    also, 74u has the ability to make 1.0 KDR players into 10.0 KDR players with little to no extra effort whatsoever. That doesn't seem right to me.

    So I downloaded the map pack, dropped into a game of Wall, and thought to myself, "Hey, maybe this would be a fun time to try those sniper rifles I keep hearing about." I then proceeded to kill my way up to dogs whilst standing in the same window in the house by A. I switched back to my Skorpions after that, but dang if that map isn't a sniper paradise.

    It would be like if the Queen woke you up every morning. Too special.

    It all depends on the connection speed. I currently have all of the movie stations that Comcast offers in a mega bundle. I'm going to see about dropping all but one and upgrading my net connection to the next highest level. I'm sick of getting the drop on someone, unloading 10 rounds into them while they don't move, then having them take me out, followed by a kill cam showing me halfheartedly aim and only get off two rounds (misses) before being killed.

    Yeah, I don't like that part about this game.

    Fawst, unless your bandwidth is pretty low right now, just increasing it won't likely affect your CoD connection much. It's more important that you have a low response time to servers across the country, with minimal jitter. Sites like Pingtest can give you an idea of your connection response time. Having the best connection in the world won't help if the game picks a poor choice for host.
    also, 74u has the ability to make 1.0 KDR players into 10.0 KDR players with little to no extra effort whatsoever. That doesn't seem right to me.

    It's a good gun, but come on - it doesn't make that big of a difference if the person was already using a gun like the FAMAS/AUG. I highly doubt a random player can pick it up and get 10 times the kills unless they went from getting 1 kill a game camping to 10 actually moving around.

    Perhaps Acid was using hyperbole. Perhaps. What makes the 74u so good is that you can move around much faster with it, even while ADSing, and it does AR damage, at a mugh higher RoF (w/ Rapid Fire, obviously). Oh and has easily manageable recoil.

    EDIT: Actually, the 74u does more damage than the AUG/FAMAS per bullet, and fires faster. Nah, that's not silly at all.

    It does actually allow you to go from standing to prone faster. Heh.

    So, it basically does everything an AR does, only better.

    I don't know how much of it is the actual AK74u, but the AK74 user is also invariably a lightweight marathon hipsprayer, which is pathetic but apparently Treyarch's idea of how the game was supposed to be played.

    Edit: I've seen 74 apologists say its fine because it fits the rock paper scissors template in that it still lacks long range ability. I have to wonder what game they're playing that has so many engagements at long range.

    I swear that all they need to do is move it to the AR class (where it belongs) and that will be an easy and decent way to nerf it without actually nerfing it.

    It only does more damage within 20ish meters, and does less than the FAMAS any distance past that. SMGs should win at close range, otherwise why would anyone use them over an AR? I suppose for increased mobility, but I'm not sure that's worth having the AR outclass the SMG at any distance.

    It's only faster than the FAMAS if you use the attachment slot for RF, and even then it's marginal (1000 instead of 940 is a much higher RoF?) The 74u also has higher recoil than the FAMAS (assuming you don't use a Grip).

    Raise time is actually slower on the 74u, not faster.

    EDIT: The 74u is only "bad" at long range if the person shooting you has decent aim and is using an AR. It's easy to pick off people at long range who don't retaliate quickly, but's true with the MP5k too in my experience.

    It is still better than most of the assault rifles.

    I don't use it anymore because I am tired of it. It is pretty much a FAMAS except you move faster because it is grouped with the SMGs.

    Have people seen the crazy ass easter eggs people are discovering in Ascension?

    You do all sorts of crazy stuff like throw black holes at items on the map, fire PaP's guns through portals in certain combinations, and have your whole team stand near a clock for a whole minute without moving. Apparently it actually leads to being able to "help" the guy you hear talking at the beginning of the round.

    The G11's hip spread is already the same as an SMG. Steady Aim just makes it even more ridiculous.

    I'd like to ask my fellow shotgunning fools in the thread a perk question. Tier 1 & 3 are obviously going to be LW and Marathon. But I'm debating whether I want to switch out SA. You're probably assuming I'm debating between SA and SoH, but you'd be wrong. I'm actually thinking that Scout Pro might be the way to go.

    I'm using the Olympia, so the faster switch to my Ex-clip 1911 and the faster bitch nade throw sounds like it might work nicely for my playstyle. But I'm not sure if it'd be worth losing SA for. Any opinions?

    And if so, can I get the One Shot, One Kill Medals with a shotgun? I don't remember ever seeing that pop up when I kill someone, but I could just be oblivious.

    Try it in Combat Training on Hardened or Vet and see how things go. It's what I do when I want to try out new weapons and perks. It'll give you a decent idea of how things go because you're essentially playing against a team of Scatmans.

    I got my 3 blackbird contract last night running a silenced spas12 lw/sa/mara.

    Sounds good to me. Keep on keeping on.

    If I was running with a SPAS, I probably wouldn't even consider anything except SA. But with the Olympia, I find I'm switching to my 1911 pretty often (since I only get two shots before having to reload), and at range a quick flash makes closing the distance gap much easier.

    Maybe I'll just give it a shot and see what happens. Although I'll have to play a bunch of sniper to get the pro challenges, so that sucks. Maybe I'll go into hardcore for them.

    For the SPAS, SA seems like a requirement, for the Olympia, not so much. I like SoH with the Olympia, personally.

    step 1: aim at sniper who is at long distance, kill him with 4 rounds shot faster than he can refire his dragunov/WA2k/PSG1.

    step 2: aim at assault rifle guy at medium distance, kill him with 3 rounds shot faster than he can refire his famas/aug/m16/galil.

    step 3: aim at smg/shotgun guy at short distance, kill him with 2 rounds shot faster (with less recoil) than he can refire his rapid fire mp5k/spas12.

    step 4: come back here and trollface/umad everyone on the forums, then put your shades on and say "deal with it"

    edit:

    I'm not really bitching about it but I just find the gun boring because function/form the 74u is simply better than all other SMGs, and about as good as all the AR's (except you move faster so it's at least slightly better)

    Every prestige, my crutch is the Famas. I don't even know if it's actually better than any other AR's, but it just feels so right. Until 44, when I get to enjoy the commando for 6 short levels before the next prestige.

    Also have there been things you guys have stopped even trying for, knowing that you still have some prestiges left? I don't bother to pro any perks other than lightweight (it practically pro's itself), flak, hardened, soh and hacker anymore. 15th is so close and yet so far
