Okay, you could say that about any level of player at any game.

It is probably safer to assume if they have multi prestiged that they have plenty of experience of the game therefore your advantage of more experience than non prestige is actually nullified.

That doesn't take into account actual skill which is a bit more difficult to substantiate.
Multi prestige may have no skill and level 3 no prestige may have lots.

It is safe to assume that a multi prestige has an advantage over non prestige players.
Whether they are skilled enough to use that advantage is a different story.

Agreed. I sucked until lv. 40. Then I met lolavi, my skills rose up. Thanks bro.

It looks like I am one of the guys that have an advantage.

No offense to the people with iPhones
Having a hardware advantage doesn't equal skill.
The hardware certainly helps but the fact is if you're good, you're good.
A few players on here with touch 4 prove that.
If you're bad, it doesn't matter what device you have. A speedy device and knowing the controls on the iphone won't make you skilled and won't stop you getting killed a lot by skilled players.
And if you're skilled, the hardware will help more.

Yeah that's why I love this game. Anyone can be good at this game. but I guess you're right about that experience advantage.

How exactly did I help you?

Man I really want to be one of you fast device users I'm not saying it's unfair to me since it's up to me to buy a new device, but it does get annoying when you sometimes don't even see them coming and the screen is red...

But a hardware can make it easier to become skilled... But I'm no expert in this since I've been rocking the ancient Touch 4 for my entire MC "career". I did try on iPad and I was blown away by how smooth MC3 ran

I like playing good players like Rip, etc... Brings your level up, makes you a better player. I'm only at level 32 right now, and hope to play more but there are so many great games, it's hard for me to commit to one.

Also Shadowgun deadzone will have new mp maps. The game is good. Then the Walking dead makes episode 1 free. Just too many great games. See you guys on the battle field.

Oh well no problem We gotta play again soon. See how much you've improved

Kdr is now at 2.22. Rises 0.1 every second match. Sometimes more at one time. I really hope I can get to 2.5! That'd be a historic moment for iPod players Well at least for me. Even in mc3 which was supposed to be easy, I only had 1.88

I'll take that compliment, thanks very much.

Funnily enough, I actually don't consider myself terribly well skilled at this MC despite leader board position. I found the previous ones far easier to dominate matches.

I never go negative and frequently get 30 - 50 (68 max) kills per match but I seem to spend a lot of time covering team mates or actually trying to get the flag/zone/vip to win the match and end up dead.
Hence my lower than I'm used to k/d of 2.06 and abysmal w/l of 1.68 I think. Mc3 peaked at k/d of 4.8 if I remember right. I think the hackers wrecked my chances of hitting 5. Plus I got a 128 kill streak in mc3.
(Lolavi 2.22 on an iPod touch 4 is staggeringly good though considering I play on iPhone 5 and iPad 4 just for context)

I think I'm spending too much time trying out the effect of each attachment on each weapon as well which can be a major hindrance to your gun. And k/d ratio

Of course, in saying that, it just points to the fact that they really have got the balancing very good on this one.
And this is the one I've had the most fun with. I'll admit the physics sometimes go glitchy and the guy skyrockets like he was ht by a grenade, but damn its hugely entertaining.

Currently rocking the automatic shotgun and forget about headshots, where the head swings back and he falls over, the whole bloody things flys off the guys body. Chopped a guys both legs offs with it in last match. It's pretty disgusting but a really funny sight in a game on your mobile.

Actually saw a guys body fly off in about five different pieces from a grenade that went off right in front of my guy as well. You just can't argue with that kind of disgustingly entertaining detail.
