How to Go 501-8 in Black Ops: You Paying Attention Game Developers?

K.L. Smith: Never have I witnessed a massacre on this scale — Five Hundred Kills!? Skyllus and I discussed some of the issues with developers creating the spawn systems in a way that become easy to “trap” and the negative effects it has on the casual players. If this video isn’t an eye opener to spawn camping, I don’t know what is. (Call of Duty: Black Ops, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Update Working video: http://www.youtube.com/watc...

The article was also updated with the vid showing that he boosted his kills.

Call of a Duty is a broken game...

It really is. CoD devs really need to start balance testing their MP a LOT more before release.

Rule of Thumb ... anything starting with Call of Duty, Modern Warfare, Inifnity Ward, Treyarch, Activision ... stay away or as a matter of fact, run as fast as you can away from their products. They are and will be broke ... atleast this gen.
FACTUAL evidence  +   1650d ago

Ok now, back to reality....telling COD noobs to stay away from anything COD, is like telling a crackhead to quit cold turkey. Not happening.

Too bad the guy is a booster and it was staged...

They don't care as long as they sell Millions
and morons buy it thats the why its going to be.
rockleex  +   1649d ago
Check out tdogg's Youtube link.

Even though it was staged, skip forward 2:30 minutes into the video.

Just look at how bad the spawning system is.

The game is spawning half the enemies in the exact same spot where the camper is... for 3 minutes straight!

Come on, that's just plain bad programming.

^ The spawns are that way due to the demolition game-mode.
The teams have a more or less static spawn location unlike TDM where the spawn-location moves around.

Pointless boosting attempt anyways since KDR doesn't matter much in an objective-based game-mode.

Broken game. Only Bungie and DICE have managed to release FPS games with somewhat properly balanced MP this gen.

Black Ops makes me angry.
When I die in Black Ops I never feel that its my fault.

When I die in Halo its always my fault, and that is a situation that I am far happier with.
dlohnug  +   1649d ago
I've played Halo for 3 hours in my entire life, I've played black ops for a day now. And I can say, without a doubt, that you are super correct!
limewax  +   1650d ago
Actually CoD 2 and 3 were fairly close to being well balanced. Thats the embarassing thing, their earliest entries to this gen were more balanced than the crap they push out annually now
rockleex  +   1649d ago
COD4 was pretty balanced too.
eterry  +   1650d ago
there boosting tho, this video catches it

Definatly not Boosting
But as close to cheating as can be
NoobJobz  +   1650d ago
Not boosting? Ok. Giving someone free kills to "boost" a KD ratio or other things is boosting.
LunaticBrandon  +   1650d ago
That doesn't change the fact he was sitting at a spawn point and knifing
Firstkn1ghT  +   1650d ago
boring video. kid has zero skills.
maverick1191  +   1650d ago

treyarch i hope you watch this and sort it out
davidmccue  +   1650d ago
Get the ban hammer out.
maverick1191  +   1650d ago
indeed the one thing i like about this COD is that you can catch them by viewing there matches
Shmotz  +   1650d ago
Its already been proving that he was playing against boosters. Plus Demolition has horrible spawns anyways and thats why I never play it.
BrutallyBlunt  +   1650d ago
This is sad
When you have an imaginary leaderboard or an imaginary reward online some people are going to do whatever it takes to be above all others. This is why for the most part i only play online with friends. There are just too many losers out there that dont want to play games like they should be played.

Look at Gran Turismo 5 and how they had to basically fix the game while hosting the Academy Challenge because of some cutting corners on the track. Gamers will look for any weakness within a game and exploit it. Now with people around the world connected online it only takes seconds for others to find out how and do the same.

Black Ops got boring so fast. I can't think of just spawning and letting someone kill me, you must have alot of time on your hands
NoobJobz  +   1650d ago
You know something is up when you get 500 kills. Games aren't long enough to get 500 kills legit.
Drjft  +   1650d ago
People need to learn the difference between 'spawn trapping' and 'boosting'.

This isn't boosting. It's using a well known spawn trap that works one one map, in one game mode. Stop bitching and wait for Treyarch to patch it, because they will.

It's further argument for there to be no leaderboards though. I hate them.
GoldPS3  +   1650d ago
It is boosting. If you watch the other video you will see the other guys not even defending themselves. They let themselves get killed on purpose. Why would anyone set there and get killed over 200 times? I would leave the game before that happen. Anyway why did I even comment. I don't play this shitty game so I shouldn't care but watching people cheat in games hurts my stomach.
NoobJobz  +   1650d ago
Exactly. It is clearly boosting and not spawn trapping. Not defending themselves plus who the hell would stay in a game where you constantly get killed?

Maybe the guy saying it was not boosting was one of the guys in the video.
Drjft  +   1650d ago
I've better things to do then boost digital kills in a digital game.

Stop projecting onto me.
Squadron40Dive  +   1650d ago
kid has no skill i can shoot people after they spawn too
SockMaster  +   1649d ago
Thats Black Ops For Ya!
blackhammer  +   1649d ago
I sure do miss the old Call of Duty days. Man, I had so much fun in the first game. I wish I could find some group that still plays it.
jeeves86  +   1649d ago
Quick! Somebody call the Booster Busters!!
BX81  +   1649d ago
Dear, Tre/IW

Someone remake COD4 MW with better graphics then shoot your self in the face! If you're not willing to shoot your self in the face then just stop making BS like this! Thank you!
