I'm talking about multiplayer, guys. Let me explain.
3arc purposely made the Create-a-Class system the way they did to basically allow players to make classes that fit their play style, be it aggressive or passive or both. It was designed to more or less invoke originality within players. At least that's what I think, as it makes sense.
But please tell me...why is it that it seems Call of Duty goes through trends online? What I mean is one person creates a class and they find that it works incredibly well. A certain gun matched with a certain attachment with a certain set of perks = ultimate death dealing class. And people start to catch on, then everyone follows suit. Every game you go into there's at least 5-7 people with practically the same set-up. Then the trend fades out as someone else creates another class that works well, then everyone starts copying that. And so on.
It seems like (gun wise) it went from the AN-94 to the MP7 to the R870 to the PDW to the Scorpion to the Chicom to the FAL and then to the LMGs. And it's still kind of stuck on the Scorpion/LMGs/FAL. Then everyone uses the same type of perks, or the Shock charge/Betty trap, or whatever else.
Why is it that people can't be creative with their Create-a-Class? Instead of people altering the classes to their play style, it seems they're altering their play style to use a certain class because everyone else is using it. I just don't get it and it really rather annoys me. Especially the LMGs. Today I played about 15 or so games of TDM. A good 90% of those matches were filled with practically everyone using a LMG.
Are people lazy, or what?
