I haven't played against someone who could consistently win quick-scoping in a LONG time. I have a friend in my clan who spent a lot of time specializing in Quick Scoping, and he got real good at it too, but I still consistently beat him in 1v1s. It's a gimmick that doesn't make you always win. What have I seen a lot recently? Hmm... Dunno, so many newbies that often if I or one of my clan-mates are wrecking shop with one gun, we get a fan club and often see other players imitate. LOL! You can do well with any gun really, as long as you set up a situation that favors you (like the right range, predicting timing).
I've been playing Halo Reach in SWAT mode lately, I've had three 24 kill / 3 death games in the past two days. I think there are more new players than high-skill players in that game now, too. Edit: Could also be that Reach has skill-based matchmaking like in Halo 3, and I've improved so much since I last played or something that it's been putting me in lobbies with those with far less skill. I usually get more than half of the entire team's score for goodness sake!
My new tube amp arrived, and finally was fully outfitted Tuesday. Powering my Q701s with it is AH-MAZ-ING! Soundstage separation has really evened out, and the Q701s are even better with the extra amp after my Recon 3D. Yesterday, I had some bad buzzing and my ears got fatigue unusually fast (30 mins?), but I adjusted the bias and left the tube to warm up for a long time before playing today (probably one of the few cases that "burn-in" Improvement could be scientifically measured) and now everything sounds smooth, detailed, punchy and powerful!
Will probably write my full review for the Q701 now, and other stuff that's been on the backburners.Edited by Evshrug - 12/1/12 at 3:06pm
