I suppose I always talk shit when I discuss Call of Duty. I view it as this tactical game where I'm constantly planning what my next move will be, but to be fair I ONLY play hardcore. I can't get through 1 minute out of hardcore. There is ZERO strategy, it's just people running around like maniacs, only thinking "I'm going to lie down or jump the second I see an enemy".
So I suppose I don't actually know what COD is really like. I absolutely HATE that I only get European lobbies. I got hooked up with this group of American guys last week. The main guy had like 7.75 ratio for the week, and this was Friday. He was like a 3.35 ratio over all, which was higher than mines. He was in my team, and I ended up beating him by like 10 kills. I only really played that good because I had the competition.
In Euro lobbies, I'm generally going to be top, at least 80% of the time anyways. It's rare that I get some competition, and when I do they always rage quit after they lose.
I was DYING for a clan on BO2 for HC CTF, but every online clan wanted to be "official".
