    I can't seem to find an answer to this question. Can I give someone my copy of a store bought Black Ops despite it being activated on my Steam account (Because it was required which is absolutely stupid)?

    Do I need to deactivate it from my Steam account before the new owner can install it?

    You cannot de-activate it from yoru steam account. There is no way to transfer a copy of Black Ops to another user other than giving your Steam account to them.

    Ok, so now I see one pro. I don't think it outweighs the cons tho.

    How about...call of duty drunk ops...pistol and knifes/ballistic knife only.
    1st to 10 kills.
    1 normal kill= 1 shot
    Knife kill= 2 shots
    headshot/ballistic knife including= 3 shots

    Spice up the gameplay by getting drunk.
    Brandenburg says thanks.

    Wow, people do still play! I gave up the 2nd week after it was released...gotta say it was the worst brand new game experience I have ever dealt with...between paying for a server we couldn't find, the sound glitches, the lag, and the lack of polish for a game that demanded a $10 premium over many other PC games (including BC2).

    I may have to reinstall this game...it will go down in history as one of the few crap games I was stupid enough to hype over and waste my money on. I had a few good moments, marred by a shit-ton (and believe me that's a lot!) of issues. Every game has fail in it, Blops, just liked to show them off more...almost as if they were proud of them.

    So I take it they've patched this game up to par then in the last 6 months?

    Couldn't agree more, campers, cheaters, stupid weapons, barely any recoil making it way to easy, lag; fps and server, I can't find servers sometimes, stupid stats loading system doesn't work for me sometimes.

    Edit: Not to mention, unlimited grenades from the scavenger perk. They removed quick scoping which was a lot of fun.

    The Black Ops developers need to wake up and get a clue of what the people want.

    The game was "playable" by December imo. Been playing matches every since. My clan is up to 143 recorded matches since 19th November 2010.

    I honestly don't see why you would play this competitively, no promod, VAC sucks and you need internet to logon to steam if you want to LAN.

    I do not understand what this fixation with Promod is to be honest. Promod was not even out till muuuuuch later for COD4 (around late March?), we were using PAM (Since about February 2008). Imo, today, "promod" means nothing. Anyone can come up with a competitive mod, and call it "promod" and people will probably rush off any get it.

    But i digress.

    No promod....promod is NOT a criteria for competition. The game is rather much more "balanced" than other CODs. There is no single overpowered like crazy weapon, that cannot be countered. There are also various settings that can be manipulated server side to make decent competitive configs, like those used in Enemydown, Clanbase, ESL, and Euro Domination.

    VAC sucks, ye...we know, therefore we use UAC3, and have demos. True, theatre mode is dumbed down to the point where it is nowhere near accurate, however, anti-cheat admins, know what they are looking for in cheaters, and can catch cheaters because we have everyone's POV just like SourceTV. So, little problem as far as Anti-Cheat goes.

    Internet to log on for LAN....tbh, i do not know of a LAN party that has absolutely no internet access. Once you are logged in, it uses the local network anyway....

    Eurodomination has (at this moment) 1138 matches played in Black Ops. That is compared to the 28 for MoH, 674 for BC2, 1454 for WaW, and 9252 for COD4.

    So, 2 questions for you to think of, can the thousands playing competitively be that wrong? If we are enjoying it, does it even matter?

    My clan is a competitive clan that likes COD, I am not saying BO is perfect, however, it is all we have at the moment, and we are enjoying every moment of it.

    I have to disagree on your opinion that the game is more balanced than other COD's. Both 2 and 4 blow it away in that respect.

    And COD4 is also more configurable server side, actually supports modding and custom maps, and allows true LAN play.

    It blows BO away by far.

    No quick scoping was the worst thing that they have ever done on any game...IMO it is worse than/the same as auto aim for consoles....Quick scoping makes me wanna puke..

    Yeah, I have to agree there. Might as well have a built in aimbot.

    How? I am stating balance as far as the weapon, perk and killstreak system goes, and the after launch support and tweaking going on. The damage done by the weapons, and the ability to counter most perks gaining some advantage losing others seems rather fair to me so far. Just saying "Both 2 and 4 blow it away in that respect" does not actually mean anything as that is staing personal opinion, and not really the numbers behind the statement.


    Server side configurability, Black ops has just about the same. Enough to allow competition from day 1. Modding is on the way. As far as "true LAN" goes, you can thank the pirates for killing that. Correct me if i am wrong and state a game that actually has true LAN released by a major company recently.

    However, once you set up a LAN server, the degree of customisation is even higher than an unranked server (you can even tweak each perk).

    I would agree to that, but those are the days gone by. Hence my last line, "I am not saying BO is perfect, however, it is all we have at the moment, and we are enjoying every moment of it."
