To build off the thread created by Pistol Chaos, here is the reason why most of us hate "quickscoping" -
It takes the intended strategy out of the game, and turns it into a video geek adventure.
I'm not interested in how some hacker can change a game. It doesn't impress me, it doesn't entertain me, nothing.
The reason is not because I'm "close-minded" or "unduly negative", it's because I realize that it's the result of some loser with WAY too much time on their hands, thinking that they are clever, because they sit back and try to figure some "angle" of the game which they can exploit.
It's some NERD who wants to think that they are smart or clever, but in reality, you're a loser with excess time on your hands. While the rest of us are trying to enjoy a strategy game, YOU are trying to hack it.
It's no different the losers in World at War who would "get under the map", and exploit a glitch.
It's not "clever". It's a loser who cannot participate because of personal issues.
I for one don't like quickscoping. But it is definitely not a hack, just an exploit. Hell it's a video game, quit getting so caught up in it. You're just as much of a nerd for calling quickscopers nerds.
Nobody is "caught up" in anything. This is a forum, and this is called a discussion. That takes place on forums.
And whether you want to call it an exploit versus hack, the point is the same.
Hacking? Since when was quicksccoping hacking? Haha did some ruin your nuke run?
Hacking is cheating because youre altering the game in an illegal way, but theres noting wrong with quickscoping. Maybe your just really terrible at this game...
I just hate because the kids that do it are A-holes to the real snipers "Hey guys look at the hardscoping noob". Well 1. I'm not a noob and 2. it's not hardscoping it's SNIPING!!! And another thing that irritates me about them is the fact that they don't know when to stop doing it. Search and Destroy is plagued with them, I never play it alone anymore because it becomes a quickscoping duel with the last 2 people of the round.
