Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 holds a special place in many gamers' hearts. Modern Warfare and Black Ops has a special place in the hearts of those of us who were old enough to remember when Call of Duty was taking down other FPS games left and right. Nearly a decade ago, Scump was making a big name for himself.

Call of Duty used to put anyone in any lobby before skill-based matchmaking was available. Thus, players like Scump could demolish enemy teams with ease. Although that is still possible today, Scump disagrees with the methods required.

First, let's explain why Call of Duty will never be the same. Today, matchmaking is done based on skill. So big players typically face other pro players. Sure, there are ways to circumvent that, but Scump disagrees with it.

That's why some streamers are always so much better than those they play against. Starting a new profile will put them against new people and make things severely unfair. But Scump says that's one of the biggest reasons he can't repeat the 88-0 killstreak he did in the video below:

Older games hold an exceptional place in our hearts, but that doesn't mean they were better. It is just a matter of improving the formula in Black Ops Cold War, Warzone, and Vanguard to make it better. Was it better for the pros? Certainly, however, it was worse for newer players.

Today, new players can jump in and get killed by hackers instead of pros. In that way, Call of Duty makes things fair.
