I play Black Ops 2 on pc. I've played every single Call of Duty game on pc. Last night, the "genius" David Vonderhaar, game design director at Treyarch, made the decision to kill the Hardcore Capture the flag game mode and replaced it with Hardcore Domination. After all the money they've made from this game including their ridiculous new vanity packs being sold now, Black Ops 2 only has 4
hardcore modes. They were TDM, Seach and Destroy (which always has a LOW number of players), kill confirmed, and hardcore ctf (which has a good amount of regular players). Now they've taken away, hc ctf, replaced that with hc domination instead of taking away the least played mode of hc s&d. Needless to say, there are a lot of pissed off people.
Try playing core (softcore) ctf and what you get are people who mostly just play with OP pistols / shotguns for instant kills because if you try playing with a smg or an assault rifle it would take a full mag (damn near) to kill someone. Domination is fine a few games ago, but with modes like dropzone (in mw3) and hc ctf in Black ops 2, they were the best objective game modes period. Their so called numbers of how hc ctf had the lowest player tally is bogus because hc ctf had more people playing than core and hc search and destroy combined on any given day. Who the heck adds popular game modes and then takes them away from people actually playing them. Ridiculous!
