I agree and disagree. Here's why:
I skipped right into hardcore mode and leveled all the way up doing that. I got super good at hardcore. It was a great way to learn quick target acquisition and to use cation. However...
When I got tired of every gun having the exact same stats (because of every gun being practically a one shot kill), I went back to normal games.
And I got slaughtered. I would get butchered just because I would forget that it now took more shots to down a player, people could actually recover health regularly, etc. IMO, normal mode is harder and takes more work to score higher than in hardcore. Hardcore, to me, has become a haven for campers looking for easy kills.
In normal matches your perks actually mean something, you have to keep moving, and using different weapons actually means a different play style.
