After a year of play, I've finally beaten all four Divine Beasts and obtained the Master Sword.
I'm still super terrible at the game and I highly doubt I could handle Ganon considering I can barely handle a Guardian. Getting into Hyrule Castle at all seems overwhelming.
But I think I'll try anyway, soon.
Maybe I'll forge anti-Guardian armor first...

oh, that screencap was unrelated to my venting, that was from the best match I've had so far.
I can do "good" in the game, just not as good as I'm desperately craving to do.
every time I get a VTOL Jet (which is an 8-killstreak) it gets me a MASSIVE multikill and it's just the best feeling ever, so when I play a whole match and CAN'T get that it's the worst feeling ever. I have been trying my ASS off, camping with replenishing claymores, using overpowered meta weapons, etc. and I'm still lucky if I go on a really big streak once every ten matches. I consistently get a positive k/d but I'm just not satisfied with the amount of kills I get. MW is different than other CoD games, the maps are fucking huge and promote camping so TDM matches will literally hit the time limit because nobody wants to go out and risk getting shot in the back or blown up by a claymore, especially since there are so many different angles and entrances on every part of the map.
I keep seeing Domination matches where nobody even reaches 30 kills which is absurd, in previous MW games it was easy to get 40+ kills a match in Domination. The spawns play into this as well, for some reason in this game you constantly get spawned on the edges of the map and have to just run through basically nothing for like 40 seconds to even encounter anyone which is so dumb, no previous CoD was like that. They can do a simple fix for this by adjusting the spawn points, and also adding better maps. They promised that all DLC maps for this game will be free, and dataminers found 38 maps listed in the game files.

Really the game just needs better spawns and better maps, and it would be great. As it stands there are like two, maybe three maps that I like enough to actually say are "good". Several of them are unbelievably bad and usually instant quits for me.
It sucks because there are some aspects of this game that are the best of any CoD in years, it has so much potential to be so freaking fun.
I'm just getting too frustrated with it, the last couple days. I think I need a break.

Have you thought about trying something a bit less CoD style as far as shooters are concerned? Granted there aren't a lot of good FPS games on the market right now, which is kind of sad, but you should try a more arcade style shooter, you might like it.

Idk, the holy trinity of shooter games for me is Halo, CoD and Gears, at least in terms of multiplayer. Nothing else ever feels as fun, and I've tried a lot of stuff. Probably just gonna end up going back to Gears 5 which is getting an update soon, and other hobbies.

I'd rather enjoy the game then be forced to play it one way. There are other weapons besides the M4, 725, PKM, and MP5.

And the claymore needs to be nerfed, cause that blast radius is insane.

But that may be because the game is pushed more towards camping and holding your ground over rushing. That and I'm not very competent with these games.

>>42107935
I mean I agree, but they've already announced that a nerf is coming for the 725, and it's likely an M4 nerf will follow, so why not take advantage of spamming the shit out of them during the small window you get to do so? Once they're nerfed, that's it, you'll literally never get to experience them being OP in online modes again. I'm still salty that they nerfed the akimbo 1887s in MW2 before I even unlocked them lol.

Of course, this also might be one of those situations where they "nerf" the gun but it just ends up being good in another way. Like, say they nerf the default range, but forget to nerf the slug rounds or something.

What they need to do with claymores is bring back the delay between triggering it and it exploding so that if you see the lazers around a corner, you can cause it to blow up but not die. Additionally, make it so stun grenades disable them for more than three freaking seconds.

But yeah, as it stands MW is very much a camper's game, however a lot of that is due to map design. They're adding two new maps and also the Hardpoint mode tomorrow which could shake things up. The objective in Hardpoint moves every minute iirc around several different map locations, so camping will make a lot less sense because people will keep moving to the objective rather than the same few areas that can be camped effectively. Camping in Domination is rampant because the objectives never change position, so as long as enemies try to take B, you can keep killing enemies at B by camping at A or C. However, in Hardpoint, if the objective spawns where C would normally be, it will be pointless to camp where A normally is, for example.

Explosives will also be devastating in Hardpoint. Thinking about the potential multikills with the RPG and C4 makes me want to nut.

But...I'm not saying anyone is saying CoD is "the best". I just think a ton of gamers like it.

People buy video games for different reasons than they buy food. Like, McDonald's is a few dollars for something you finish in a few minutes, whereas CoD is at least $60 when it first comes out and people generally buy to play for at least a good few hours, and for a lot of people many, many more.

I think the reason CoD sells so much is because it appeals to the larger "casual" gamer demographic. There's not as much of an investment in it to have fun, so a lot of people pick it up just to mess around in when they're not playing something more serious or w/e.

Also lowkey it always irritates me when people go on about how CoD is supposedly "the same every year" but then those same people will be like "Oh man, can't fucking wait for the new Pokemon games!" (and I say this as a Pokemon fanatic, too).

See, you're not wrong here. That is why I don't think the Beatles reference was accurate. The Beatles had substance. They were an icon. Games like COD are like the top 40's. They may be played on every station but they aren't the "heart" of music. Similarly, CoD is exactly as you said, it's a simple game designed to sell to the largest demographic possible. But for someone who actually wants depth and likes their games to have substance and meaning, games like CoD is just that thing that plays in the background and you don't pay much attention to if you are serious about the hobby.

also 55 is the max regular rank for MW but they have seasonal ranks as well, so technically you can go higher. But at 55, you have all the base game content unlocked. No prestige system this time.

It was one of the games that first got me into online gaming, along with Halo 3 and the original Gears Of War.
It's not my favorite CoD game personally, but the online experience with it when I was a young teenager was possibly the all-time peak of pure fun and excitement in online gaming for me. There was just something about it, I would say it kinda captured an era of video games that's long over now.

The problems are related. Your garbage trucks/ambulances can't get to the houses to pick up trash and corpses because they are stuck in traffic.

Make some side roads near the outskirts of the city that connect directly to your mortuaries and landfills.

Also check to make sure your graveyards/landfills aren't full. If they are build more, or build trash burning centers or crematoriums in order to empty them. Take note you need to specifically set a landfill/graveyard to the "Empty" state in order for trucks to start emptying them. Otherwise they will sit full, even if there are places to take the trash to be burned.
