Metro redux comes in 2 days, thats going to be fun.

Cod requires skills if you play competitive. And not pubs. Going into a lobby and pub stomping is completely different than playing cod Esports.

Seeing as at least two people have taken credit for it on twitter it's highly unlikely.

I don't doubt that a highly synchronized and experienced team can easily beat one that isn't (like an Esports team vs. a pub), that can be said about pretty much any game where you have casuals vs. people who dedicate legit time to a game. The point I'm making is that sniping or anything in CoD in general doesn't require skill to do well at even for casuals.

Have a casual gamer jump into USF4, chances are he loses 99% of his matches in brutal and embarrassing fashion, maybe even to a point of never wanting to play the game again. Have that same guy hop into CoD, chances are he's going to get some kills, get some points, snipe some people and in general help his team. That accessibility, low learning curve and general lack of required skill to play the game in an online competitive setting is why so many people buy it.

I suppose I am unfairly comparing it to games that are so skill mandatory that they have a high barrier to entry right out of the gate and can crush your soul at the basic entry level of play if you don't take it serious and study the mechanics in-depth.

Legitimate guys who might have done it or just silly people playing around? I hope they catch whoever did it, it just seems they struggle to pin point the right people when this kind of thing happens.

Cod does have a smaller learning curve, but for me I play it competitively so I have a completely different view on the game, simply because I travel for tournaments and never play in pubs unless the team isn't on to scrim so I go into clan vs clan Esports rules. So basically pub players going into competitive cod will struggle no matter how amazing of a player they are. So I get a little frustrated when people say Cod requires no skills

I'm not going to say you're wrong, but I will say that I'm highly skeptical that a guy who plays "esports" CoD is going to wipe the floor with a guy who doesn't play "esports", but also dedicates a lot of time to the game.

The main point I'm making is, sniping or playing CoD in general doesn't require that much skill to play. Kids can play it and succeed at it in online play pretty easily, casual gamers who hardly play games enjoy it and compete in it, saying that anything in CoD *requires* skill is just wrong in my opinion, as that's exactly the opposite of why CoD sells so well - it's made for casual FPS fans who lack the skill required to play other types of FPS games (or other competitive games in general).

I am sure that the people who dedicate a great deal extra time to the game are better than people who don't though, that's a no brainier and I agree.

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".

I thought the co-op wasn't that good, but really enjoyed the game solo. It's too hard to follow quests in co-op in my opinion and made it less interesting.

Well everything requires skill, but the learning curve in CoD is quite small in comparison to other games.
