hoot since we play with the same clan il help ya out a bit. getting to that stage it takes a little adjusting period. once you get the hang of throwing the remote mines, it will be your number one hero killer. just takes time to get the timing down.
i have recently had that problem with the anova. i was tearing people up before i got it. i was getting easy 30 kills and under 10 deaths. now im getting 20 kills over 10 deaths. im just coming out of it now. getting used to it is a big issue.
i think the distraction setup is almost worthless until you get the thermal on 38. then you can smoke it up and still see.
you will have bad games for a few days and then it will click and you will be far far better than you were. for instance when John (host quit) and i joined up, i was destroying him and he was doing good. now look. hes gettin 35 + kills, even had 51 in the archives. thats nuts. but he will have more bad games when he unlocks new things.
just hang with it and you will be better for it
