explain to me how it WASN'T the most balanced of all the modern cod's? i never said it was perfect but infinitely more fair and skill based when compared to all the other cods that came after (not counting waw, never played that, never cared to)
None of the Cod's was and is ever balanced, if I'd choose one cod close to being the most proportionately balanced that would be cod2 which required skill and tactical thinking to rank up kills rather than just spray and pray like in the other cods.
all the guns you mentioned weren't overpowered, they were just used alot because people liked them, those werent one shot kill weapons, they didnt have insane rates of fire that other guns couldnt compete with, people just used them because they liked them
I don't know if you played the PC version or whatnot but the AK's were overpowered, you can drop a whole team with one clip, why do you think IW balanced out the damage in MW2 for the AK-47? I never said they were one shot kill weapons, name one SMG or AR from the other cod's that was a one shot kill weapon used in regular modes not hardcore.
you only pointed out 2 maps, where it was possible to rack up kills with killstreaks if things just happened to go your way that match, but it wasn't a every game type of deal and by and large the rest of the maps more than made up for them, also i dont know what you mean as far as spamming air strikes, i dont see how its possible since your kills stack and if you failed to use your prior killstreaks from 5 and got to 7 you lost your airstrike and went straight to chopper
Ever played a 32 player slot pub tdm round in the mentioned maps? Mainly bog or wetworks, player's would constantly spam killstreaks on spawn area's and chopper's in the round's which sometimes so well executed by a very good team, you'd have no chance of getting kills but to camp and hide.
i mean if honestly you dont think cod4 was the most balanced and had the best maps as a whole, then i would really like to hear which cod you think was the pinnacle of the series and your reasons for them
The only reason cod4 was the pinnacle of the series is because it was the first of its kind released, their was no other modernised fps shooter like it, yeh it sort of changed the fps genre for war based shooter's, but it had a lot of its own flaws.
If IW went back and created another cod just like cod4 with some extra map's there won't be as much player's playing it as compared to the first release of cod4, I personally know I wouldn't, because it's been done and played over. The second reason why a lot of people played it because there was a ridiculous amount combinations of perks and overpowered weapons such as the AK that would rank up a lot of kills, for player's that played cod4 professionally (such as I did) for lan events and major hardware sponsors, we modded the crap out of config files knowing the insides and outs, we had this option in cod4 (and waw) that no other cods offered. There are too many restrictions in the new cods and having forking out your hard earned cash for a game and only to be restricted to how the developer want's you to play the game is a big no, lot's of people lost interest in mw2 onward's was the lack of console.
also i dont pretend to be some massive cod elitist or expert, im a battlefield player if anything, but i also enjoy cod and fps games period
I don't hate cod4 or anything but from your previous comments made it seem that cod4 was and is perfect and I had to correct this.
There is also a difference basing your opinions on the bias of fanboyism and basing the factual evidence provided from a comparison of all the games, coming from a global point of view.
