    Gameplay Balancing:

      • Reduced the weight of positive team spawn influencers on owned Domination flags. This reduces cases in Domination where players may spawn near their team but also near danger.
      • Added more spawn points to Hijacked for Demolition and Kill Confirmed, which improves the spawn-picking algorithm on that map in those game modes.
      • Adjusted spawn influencers on Standoff for improved spawn-picking algorithms in all game modes.

      • MSMC: Hip fire accuracy has been slightly reduced.

    Introducing Micro Transactions for BOII
    What does this mean? Micro Transactions are packs you can by separately for 160 MS points (and the PS3 and PC equivalent) each. A pack includes reticles for ACOG, Red Dot, and EO-Tech Sight, special custom Calling Card titles, and a Special Camo. For example, the Bacon Personalization Pack wraps your favorite weapon in the most delicious cured meat known to man. I like that Treyarch has a sense of humor.

    Flags of the World Calling Card Packs
    These packs include national flag-themed Calling Cards from countries around the world. Packs are divided by geographical region and costs 80 MS Points per region pack.
    Also, for folks who have been wondering about the Nuketown 2025 map, if for some reason you couldn't pre-order, or your code was broken, well hold your piggies and mooshrooms because it's going to be a free available download starting tomorrow. Yep. Also, the Nuketown Zombies map will be available tomorrow in the Black Ops 2 in-game store for 400 MSP.
    Extra Slots Pack
    These packs will allow you to expand your media storage on BO2, allowing you to archive 20 more emblems, 32 more films and 40 more screenshots for 160 MS Points.
    Also, including with the media expanding, you will also get EXTRA CUSTOM CLASSES.
    You will actually be getting a total of 10 “class sets” of Create-a-Class slots per game mode (public, custom and league). Each class set equals five custom class slots. Additionally, Prestige tokens will grant you up to five additional custom class slots. That means with this CAC Micro Item upgrade, you’ll end up with 50 individual slots (10 class sets of five custom class slots each) as a default. For public matches, adding in Prestige Master will get you an additional five slots (for a total of 55 custom class slots).

    At the end of the day, all of these items are completely optional, and were created for players who’ve asked for more customization options. If that’s not you, that’s fine; everybody gets Nuketown 2025 for free, so definitely take advantage of that. For complete info, check out the official site starting tomorrow. And yes, these will be coming to other platforms as well (In about a month I assume).

    Q&A Section:

  4. You're get it later than most people, but yes, you still do get it and so does everyone else who couldn't lol
  5. BUMP for Bacon Camo
  6. MSMC was my fav gun now i don't really like it due to more recoil :(
  7. Yeah, I tried it out for a few a games it's not the best anymore, but it's still usable. Just control the recoil and I still get really good games. But now the Vector and other SMGs also might be used in Pubs as well..
  8. Ffs.. why do they give a pre-order map free now.. besides the zombie one... bit unfair you know what I mean..

    Right... thanks tho Saj you made me format my disk and reinstall OS again, cus for some reason BO2.exe just crashes at load..

    Smg recoil, hahaha... xD
  9. You're welcome.
  10. >: D guess its like for one day hahah =P

  11. black ops 2 needs alot of nerfs to be a "good" game the multiplayer is just a disaster . zombies is pretty good
  12. I haven't played Zombies in a while, but I was the Skull with a Knife, but I probably got deranked. And I think MP's never going to be perfect, and lots of people have accepted that. And just saying, it's usually people who do really bad who hate the game, I mean, if you do good, are you going to say the game is trash? My reasoning is, good players make the new players feel bad, which makes them hate the game. IMO.
  13. As far as I know, also happend to me of course.. The only derank you get are the color of your eyes, no more magic blue eyes :)
  14. Nope, I got deranked twice, so you don't only get your blue eyes removed.
  15. Bleh! I hope I'm not deranked =P
