Absolutely...but I expect I should be able to maintain it...

Did some crazy work this weekend. K/D is up to 2.11 and there was an evening where I was nigh untouchable. I had a 1/2 dozen matches where I didn't die at all (like 21-0, 18-0, etc)All the while my SPM is slowly going up.

Also got the Weevil to gold and all my specialists are at 800 kills!

Specialist Abilities Rankings

1. Psychosis- the confusion it causes is real and hilarious
2. Active Armor- can give you that 1/3 of a second edge that is the difference between life and death
3. Glitch- haven't used it in a while, but it is so fun to use. Not sure if players have caught on to it yet
4. Combat focus- easy killstreaks
5. Kinetic Armor- too loud, but fun.
6. Overdrive- helpful, but i'm not a super rush guy
7. Vision Pulse- too short; heat vision is disorienting
8. Heatwave- it is too easy for players to still kill you.
9. Rejack- too easy to counter and they completely nerfed it from the beta

Specialist Weapons Ranking
1. Purifier
2. War Machine
3. Gravity Spikes
4. Scythe
5. Annihilator
6. Tempest
7. H.I.V.E.
8. Sparrow
9. Ripper

Overall Specialist Ranking:
1. Battery
2. Reaper
3. Ruin
4. Spectre
5. Firebreak
6. Prophet
7. Seraph
8. Nomad

Ripper is ridiculous and is typically always available.  I love it and find it very effective.  Also Rejack was recently buffed and went from trash to at least usable.

I'm a huge fan of the Ripper as well, though using it does basically always lead to an eventual death for me. It's still fun as hell and I can get 2-3 kills before someone shoots me as I'm trying to stab them in the face.

I can see ATB not enjoying it based on his self-described play style. You have to run around a lot to make it fun, otherwise its never useful.

It seems that the damage has been scaled back as it is taking at least 1-2 more hits to kill targets. It's possible it was my connection...but something is up.

I've definitely not noticed a change with the Kuda and Vond didn't tweet anything about it (he's been good at that for Blops 3), so I think its in your head/connection.

I've moved pretty much exclusively to TDM now. Just easier to get a game and I found that KC just takes a long time now that I am used to the TDM match pace. I really wish I could play some Dom, but solo Dom is just asking for pain.

I am in an absolutely epic slump.  Wow. Maddeningly frustrating. Died 11 times against a team that had no prestiges last night.

K/D has dropped .03 in the last week or so and that takes some doing given how many kills I have...an extended period of absolute suck.

Game just went P2W, film at 11.

There are now weapons available in the Black Market that are really, really good and not just cosmetic.  Can't quite understand why they would go this route knowing how people would react.

i got lucky and got the crossbow from black market, it's basically a ballistic knife with a 6 round magazine.... that you can dual wield.   icon_eek

Every bit as crazy as it sounds. Went somethign like 44-9 first try with the dual wield attachment.  Also can have a bayonet attachment for one shot melee

New rifle is basically a buffed Sheiva in the disguise of an M1 Garand

New melee weapons aren't just reskins but have different swing speeds one of which is stupid fast.  

Not sure what they were thinking.  The sword looks cool though.

recorded some clips of crossbow in action

Game seems to be more consistent lately.  Had a pretty good week and was able to reach a new PB for K/D: 2.13.

Have been playing mostly solo so I wonder if that explains the lack of lag. Not sure.

Anyway, new maps in two weeks. Hopefully all the glitches are fixed by the time they hit XB1.

I bought into the pay for 5 get 10 rare crates this weekend. Got some good epic and legendary stuff but no weapons. 2 of the 10 crates were duds, but overall was happy with the purchase. Might reinstall the new maps again in a week or so and give them another try. But then again, I'm really enjoying the game again so i may not...

After taking some time off because of travel/The Division, I fired this up for a few hours over the last few days and found myself still really enjoying it. Man the first few rounds were really rough though... being out of practice and used to shooting Division AI bots really ruins your ability to track and shoot humans in Blops.

Still though... looking forward to the next expansion.

I'm still loving the game very much. Playing nuketown has been a hoot.  Planning on reinstalling the new maps tonight. If I find they continue to ruin my enjoyment of the game, I'll be removing them again and probably permanently.

15.9 7.4      3/31/16

Huge jump in kills per match as I think the talent pool is thinning out a bit and there are a lot of new lower level players coming on board.  Not sure what to attribute the big jump in deaths to, other than I go on improbable bad runs where I will go 2-7 and torpedo my match.

Got my first diamond camo set (SMGs) and have eclipsed 40,000 kills. COD4, I believe, was the last and only other COD where I had that many...I think.
