I tried to focus on working through the map, not moving to quickly from one place to another, and keeping aware of my surroundings, where I thought the other team was and was coming from. The best method I found was to capture domination points when I had either eliminated most of the surrounding enemies or when I had a teammate nearby who was likely to help cap a flag. I rarely had to abandon a capture, but I did when I knew I didn’t have the firepower to support it. Things fell apart towards the last two games, when I started to run around more, going from place to place more quickly and with too much focus on getting domination captures.

KD Ratio Performance over Time
A Few Bad Games Can Tank Your Session KD Ratio in Black Ops 2

The Express game was a perfect example of when to get out of the lobby, the first 20 seconds or so of a Call of Duty objective game are a really telling period for a team. If they cannot cap b or lock down the surrounding area, then they probably shouldn’t be in a lobby together. You do not want your kd ratio to depend on teammates who are not going to support you. This opinion may change, and frankly, I was part of that team as well. Sticking it out to see if I was could singlehandedly pull a win–or at least a high k/d game turned out to be a bad decision.

Some key learning from tonight’s match on Express:

  • Don’t Rush the Dom like an IdiotIn the first 5-10 seconds of the game I ran at B-dom, cooked a grenade and rushed out into the open by the flag. Grenade in hand, I spotted a guy posted up behind the turnstile on his side looking at B. I immediately tossed a grenade INTO A HANGING SIGN, pulled out my gun and realized just how far away from any cover I actually was. When you’re rushing a cap point or a flag, have some cover in mind. When you get close, pop a squat by that cover, check the angles, then move out into the open. Nine times out of ten you are going to spot a guy either posted up and ADSing where you would have rushed out… or rushing out himself like an idiot.
  • Lose with DignityThis is questionable, and my opinion may change over time. I think these days I’m averaging five or so captures a game and almost twice as many defends… so I feel comfortable taking this position. If your teammates s- the bed and you find yourself at, say 80-30, your team is not in a good position to win. Change your pacing a bit. Take a breath and slow it way down. Start to rotate around the edges of the map more (if you are not already doing so). Get a few kills before moving on to the next position, and work your way to either of two locations—1. a good vantage point on B where you can take up and defend the spot against enemies who might post up there, and/or 2. the enemy’ home capture point (A or C). If your team is losing this badly, this early on… they are not managing their spawn points properly. It is better that you disrupt the opposing team’s point, grab some kills on unsuspecting enemies, maybe grab a killstreak or two, then throw them even further off by grabbing a cap on their home capture point.
