    Here I thought they wouldn’t go restricting anything, seeing as they have the whole Ban and Protect thing going on. I don’t play arena so I have no idea exactly what it encompasses, but I’d have thought streaks were one of the things that could be banned.

    • CoDforever

      only 3 scorestreaks are banned and only the noncompetitive ones, the uav/carepackage and hatr

      • Random

        But why? Why ban them? For balance? If they’re so unbalanced, why are they in the game? We have to put up with them in pubs, competitive should be no different.

        • Aceshigh87

          Competitive has always been played without UAV. Kinda kills the need for good strategies if you can just see the enemy pinged on your map. Same goes for HATR. Care Package historically has been to avoid streaks but now I’m guessing it’s just a pain to deal with the ban – protect system and what could come out of packages.

          The fact that they only banned 3 things actually is pretty progressive for competitive.

          • Random

            True, I will accept it is more progressive – AW and Ghosts were just stupid with the amount of things banned.

        • CoDforever

          Thats exactly what Vahn wanted dude. But because of the constant complaining from pros they had to give in and change it. Sometimes I really hate this community.

          We could have atleast kept everything as is (as Vahn wanted) just too see how it is and if it were really bad then we couldve permabanned it ..

          • Unscene

            But you dont need to see how a UAV, HATR, or a care package works. They have been in virtually every game since black ops 2 man. This being said we already know that they degrade the competitive nature of Call of Duty in a pro setting.

          • Carl Boisvert

            The thing is people wouldn’t be happy neither if the ban and protect was always going the same way. That’s what’s happening in Arena right now. UAV’s are always ban, six sense, vision pulse. It’s just that if it’s always ban, it’s not fun to watch either.

            Protect and ban is suppose to give you the opportunity to ban or protect stuff that will make the game harder or easier for your team. It’s suppose to be game changer. But it isnt because everybody has to ban those thing for the reason stated earlier: “Kinda kills the need for good strategies if you can just see the enemy pinged on your map.” Or see them coming in your back with six sense.

            My opinion only.

        • BradyAlucard[sillibk]

          This whole game was made for competitive. It makes no sense to cater to minorities like competitive and sniping clans. That’s what will kill this franchise.

        • jooker-jr

          But in public, you don’t play for 1 million prize poll, if let’s say in the finals someone called a care package and got the highest kill streak and won the league, will you say : this team won because of skill? No.

          And UAVs are banned since the beginning of cod eSport, and in bo3, players ban ALL THE TIME, so it should be banned from the beginning.

    Treyarch should have made a whole mercenary section and Playlist instead of this arena b.s. and mercenary moshpit. Nobody wants to be in the esport initiative or play a game with random modes. There’s only 1% of the population on mercenary moshpit when back in the cod 4/waw days mercenary tdm had more players than domination
