Not just ND, tap. Most companies employ the Money > Ethics strategy.


I've never seen another company implementing broken and luck-based BS like tickets or treasures. Not even Activision.

I also wish this game would offer less cheapness. But we can't do anything about it. ND thought it would help newbies but actually it just helps the good players even more. A better player will always be a better player, no matter what you do. If ND gives newbies an easy way to kill, be certain that good players will find a way to abuse such methods with more success. In the end, all the cheapness just makes the game more annoying...

 

I try not to be cheap, but when I get my kickback, I use it. When I find a power weapon, I'd rather pick it up myself than to get killed by it a minute later. What ruins this game even more are those who camp the power weapon spawns, maybe even with power hunter, and do nothing else but to spam these weapons. And if they don't have a PW, they hide and use the ridiculous Para9 blindfire (the overpowered punch often isn't even necessary anymore).


I always said that we should either have PWs on the map or kickbacks but not both. Nothing will change at this point though. This game is and will always be a power weapon festival...

Something just as close, though.

All I can say is go get the PWs before they do. Even if you don't like them.

It's not cheating. Its just a part of THIS game. And unfortunately the PWs are a crutch for the "good" players.

cheap tactics is cheating. Sorry but it is. How I view spamming of shotguns, snipers and explosives is the exact same as cheating. 

Also, how do some of those players seem to ALWAYS HAVE RPGs? How do you always have one?????????????????????

 


ND could prevent players from doing that with not allowing those types of weapons in plunder, or options to customize making a match or joining in matches. 


"Cheating" is doing something that is not allowed in a game. Spamming shotguns, snipers, and explosives isn't cheating regardless of what you think. It is allowed, whether it is frowned upon or not. An example of cheating would be exploiting glitches like the air-walk glitch or using a lag switch. Do kickbacks ruin this game? Maybe. But are they the cheating? No, not in any way, shape, or form. Your idea of cheating is not cheating. When talking to other humans it is best to use words in there actual meaning. Otherwise, those characters you're typing lose meaning all together, and that wouldn't be good at all.

 

At some point you will have to realise that uncharted is chocked full of BS, and that the only thing you can do to those exploiters is to have as much fun as possible regardless of what they use and how they use it.

Exactly, if using Power Weapons were "cheating" ND would have removed them a long time ago. Power weapons are really there to help your team out more than yourself. Being an objectives player, you have no idea how effective even a pistole can be in that gamemode. Power Weapons have always been in Uncharted and they are not going to be taken out anytime soon.

If you think something is impossible, you’ll make it impossible.

Pistole is lethal in all modes most people just can't use it effectively. I got a Rampant and I think 10-15 of my kills were of the pistole...
