I would like to go off topic here.
I know how you guys feel, having young kids running around the kids beating us much older guys in games. Yes, i feel the same way. But don't you guys remember being 13 and owning others in Quake or Counter Strike or Return to Castle Wolfenstein? I remember doing so many years back.
Fast forward to the present, we have to remember that games now are not the same like they were then. 2 identical teams with the same/similar weapons. I read this in a Starcraft book once. In real warfare, it is never like a chess game because both sides never start with the same and identical pieces. This simply means that with games being more advanced, we have no choice to adapt to what is on the market right now and just play.
I know as i get older, i am physically getting weaker. My hands move slower. I eyes track targets slower. I press buttons slower. This is a fact. And yes, the younger kids do get to kill me with their reaction speed and reflexes. But what makes me one step ahead of them is that i have experience. What would he do next. Where is the most likely places he would go. How would he go to the objectives. The most obvious set of objectives. Its like how gaming helped me when i ride my motorcycle. What is the driver gonna do next. Is it a woman or a man? What kind of car would mean what kind of driver. The same goes with gaming. If the guy has something new, figure out how to go around it. When i play games, i think of 'what the game developer' programmed it to be. The weapon, the map, all this has to run through your mind.
You have to trust the game developers out there. If they screw up, you either adapt to their screw ups, or just quit gaming, period. Gamers during my time thought out of the box, how to solve problems, how to glitch, how to anti glitch, everything. You know i never heard of rage quit or people spamming chat or VOIP(yes i know it didnt exit during that time, but you get my point). to complain about how imbar and a 'hacker' everything was. We got killed, we quickly stood up and figured out how to kill him back.
Those were the times. But the present is now. If the game is gonna be that way, you either shape up or ship out.
Okay, rant over. MW has always been an arcade style game anyway. But i take my games seriously because i can apply what i learn in real life.
