It’s pretty evident that casuals tend to be more entised with the cod franchise because it caters to the lowest common demonitor of noob. Kills are easier , the chess game is broken and unbalanced and there is very little verticality in cod games. The jump option was practically an afterthought put in by developers because all fps’ at the time had it.
It falls way short and pales in comparison to the amount of skill it takes to be succesfull in halo games in general. In halo you are not just reduced to flanking with your team and relying on fast reflexes to edge out kills, you actually have to apply cognitive and critical thinking as the chess game is more dynamic and the possibilities are endless when the battle is constantly changing and therefore dictating different actions and strategies. Cod is basically a kids game in men’s clothing. No wonder all my buddies are making the move from cod to halo this time around (and sucking at it too lol). It’s sad to see 3 people you know in real life that were beasts at cod with high kd’s come to halo and get owned so badly they barely maintain a 1.0 kd.
Essentially this whole myth of "more popular = better " is just that. A myth. And it has been dispelled. Real players who want a challenge go to halo , casual newbs that can’t hang go back to cod. That how it works , no doubt about it. It’s those same disgruntled people that make up the majority of complainers here. These critics can’t hang so they resort to raging. Typical. Don’t get bitter , get better is my advice. Learn tactics like higher ground , element of surprise , effective use of cover , proper flanking , vehicle effectiveness (and taking cover with them is equally as important), weapon combinations , battlefield awareness , one man ambushes , etc.
I’ll take a good halo player over a cod newb anyday. Halo wins leaps and bounds against cod in the “thinking-gamers” department. No competition.
