Yeah, everyone I play with is lower in this game. There is supposedly skill based matchmaking thrown in now as well, too. Honestly I think it's just all the bullshit the game has right now. The connections, the super powerful hipfire smgs, and the terrible spawns all mix together for shit K/Ds. I was at about a 1.6 in BO2, (which shouldn't happen when I'm at a 2.5 or above in every single other COD game) and the lag pissed me off so bad I just reset my stats one day. Right now I'm like a level 22 and have no intention of playing for a while.
I thought the skill based was just for league play? Which actually is a pretty good matchmaking system. A few of us have done that, and it is fun because it is competitive, everyone has access to every weapon, attachment, perk, scorestreak, etc. Also in the one that requires a full team Care Package is not allowed so it keeps you from getting screwed by some idiot who can only get a few kills and then proceed to get VTOL Warships, Lodestars, and AGRs from care packages.
I was actually thinking about doing a reset after awhile. I did one in MW3 when I hit 15th Prestige (before they made it 20). I think in that I was at a 1.8x something before doing the reset, then after the reset went to 10th with a 2.2 and then got bored and just started playing more reckless and dropped to a 1.9x by the time I switched to Medal of Honor. The only thing with this is that I don't really want to have to unlock some of the things I have already unlocked (Scavenger, Ghost, and C4 after this prestige).
EDIT: In regards to the previous talks about Ghost... I did some tests last night and here is what I noticed:
- You are invisible when LS is all the way forward and sprint is or isn't being used.
- When ADS, if you are moving you are still invisible (not sure if it is because I was sprinting right beforehand or not), and again I had LS pushed all the way in the direction I was going.
- Once you stop moving it takes about 2 seconds for Ghost to turn off
Here is the setup I was using when I did this:
PDW-57 w/ Silencer and MMS
