"Increased headshot multipliers for sniper rifles. Sniper rifles with suppressors equipped will now always be ensured one-shot kill headshots."
Now doesn't that make you happy ha ha.
As for continuing..no way. Took me almost as long to gain the last 3000 pts required for Prestige as it did to secure all 50 levels!
The only saving grace from the PC version, as it happens, is with the inability to select a specific game type....why? ... well these 'leased servers' are 'owner-friendly', in other words if you don't like 'camping or sniping' the server 'bans' you/kicks you off. I have come across a couple in my travels that have 'no running' which isn't very easy to play and lasts for 'hours' but the concept could be extended if you could create the code to 'identify' sniping/camping! I'm sure it would be possible ie using Structured English:
if 'character static for 10 seconds'
then 'kick from server'
else 'continue game'
As for PC FPS exclusive development then I fear that it is going to drop more and more and I would suggest that the 'old chestnut' would be the reason ie the console is a static and unchangeable entity and the PC environment is so changeable! A very shallow and unbelieveable excuse to make more money via the gullible console owners - look and compare game prices...there is no reason why there is such a wide gulf between the two mediums.
I will say that I'm not happy with the developers acceptance of 'more sniping opportunities request from the community' though.....total waste of game play ie cowards :¬) (And I mean from developers and players)
For me, the best games in BOps and MOH are those with minimal or no snipers...to me it's a total waste of gaming time because what does it gain? OK, I can stay in one place with my 'hiding perks' and shoot a few, move, and repeat..end of game..game winner, tons of points but so what...where is the satisfaction. You know what I mean :¬; Console first as usual...what is the game developed on...go on remind me!
Out of 8 games....servers across the known world...one game I left, not my idea of a game....the remaining 7, 3 had severe lag problems and I mean severe and the last 4 disconnected after the game but at the league table stage and so all game info lost...total waste of time and enjoyment....never again.
If this isn't Treyarch's problem then it's down to the people who lease or rent the servers. Geographically, I have travelled the world trying to play this game and I'm not impressed with this as a way forward. This is probably why the problem exists:
BOps Server deals
I'm going to return to MW2, even though I disagree with its Prestige system, at least I know I can start where I left off and select the type of game I prefer :¬)
Total waste of money for the PC version - which is a laugh in itself seeing as it was developed on the PC and then ported to console and then back again. Want to make loads of dosh, then follow the Activision way....you know it makes sense! Makes my blood boil!
Well, very interesting and having watched, I can agree :¬) Even Mrs DL has told me to buy a 360, true! Gone back to MOH now....
Just been watching this which although it has 158 likes to 1,195 dislikes (presume from PC fanboys ?) seems to mirror what you have been saying about the multiplayer on the PC version of Black Ops.My brother who is a hardcore PC gamer and huge fan of the COD series since it's inception has recently jumped ship and got the 360 version.
