I never run cold blooded and do fine.

Yeah, but remember there was a huge discussion by everyone on Cold-Blooded earlier in this thread... and it seemed like 90+% of people favored it and run it.

So it can be a very different change in play style for those who always use Cold-Blooded to go without it.

You non-CB people get CB people killed by Predators, give our team's position away every time a UAV goes up, and cower inneffectually indoors every time a killstreak reward is deployed. Jerks! slywink

you might do fine on score, but I heard ya bitch about predator missiles, harriers, chopper gunners, and all the other things that cold blooded would have kept you safe from slywink  Not to mention I hate dying to a predator aimed at the non-cold blooded ATB that was standing next to my cold blooded ass.  ninja

definitely suggest the OMA approach with Danger Close, Hardline and Cold Blooded.  Hardline gets you to the start of your streaks, then Danger Close Pro takes it from there.  Back to cold blooded when done.  Mentioned it before, but it's awesome enough to mention again slywink

Well yeah. Of course. I'm not Fuzz or calvin level whining, but if things are going wrong I get...upset.  But if I'm playing with Nonnahob I don't really have to worry about any of those things....cause they'll always go for him anyway.

I don't want to hear about it until you've been spawned under a Harrier on Wasteland 4 times in a row and don't have CB or stingers available because you're not high enough level.

Speaking of, I think Mikagami took pictures last night... but we ended up beating this other team 7500 - 2200 on TDM. They got spawn trapped in the helicopter area when Mik got his first AC-130. After that, a couple other folks got harriers and then we got another AC-130 and I don't think they left that spawn for the last 4 or so minutes of the game. It had to have been epic level frustration.

The fact that you can get so totally and hopelessly trapped there really sucks... but damn were we going nuts when we did it to them. I think it was Mik and RTuck that both went like 26 - 2... Calvin was 10 - 4 and I went 9 - 1. It was insane.

I'm starting to think the connection/matchmaking issues are rapidly deteriorating. In a span of about 90 minutes of gameplay, I think we got the "lost connection to host" message maybe 8 or 9 times, completely dropped out of matches another 3 times or so, and experienced some amount of lag in probably 1/2 the matches we played in. I overheard several others noting it also, so something is up. Is it XBOX Live? Is it the games net code? I don't know, but this week has been particularly bad, while most other games I have played have been smooth as silk.

Just finished playing for about 2 hours, and I didn't notice anything unusual.  Got dropped from lobby/host a couple times, but that's normal for that timespan.

agreed %110 on dropped lobbies and terrible matchmaking. Add CSL to the mix and well that just means that we never ever got connected to a good lobby.

Lol that was awesome. I have played against him hundreds of times.  That's the main reason I furiously mute the opposing team 90% of the matches I play.  I'd change my settings to friend only chat if I didn't like hearing em whine after a particularly good beatdown.

I always wonder about the folks who have multiple red rings. I've had my arcade for over 2 years, I don't think it is a falcon, much less a jasper, and I've never had any issues save for a few lockups that are more likely attributed to the game, not the console. Something about the environment, the power supply, something else?

It's probably the rabbits foot, four leaf clover, buffalo nickel, whathaveyou that you keep in the shrine around your 360. You better find some wood to knock on, too.

On a non-harware related note...

A while back, my k/d was sitting at .75 with the math being ~6000/8000.  Since that time, my KD has crept up to .80 with the math being at ~8000/10000.  For the last 2000 kills, I have been going 1:1.  Now If I can continut to improve, maybe I can actually flirt with 1.0 by the next CoD.

I actually got my 360 from a Mountain Dew promotion a month before official release. Its probably the oldest continuously used 360 on the planet and I've never had a single issue with it.  Not that I'm complaining.
