Prestige or Not to Prestige??????

Recommended Posts

I decided to go Prestige today on COD:[email protected] and am wondering still if I made a good decision or not. Starting all over is horrible. I am having friends ask me to play, and I tell them all no now (don't wanna look bad). Some of the team DMs I look downright bad on, my kills with the original guns and perks have gone down big time.

I think the prestiges allow you to add more classes so you can have more set-ups in a given game. I'd recommend playing games like War or HQ where you get a lot more points without having to kill as many people. Plus you can usually use a strategy that allows you to get more kills with those weapons.

One thing good about is you go from 4000 or so XP to a promotion back down to 100. I am already up to 9 level Prestige. The one thing I really hated losing was my bouncing bettys, I love those things.

I'm level 23, 2nd time prestieged. Business is getting pretty heavy now, so I'll be done probably until winter.

I agree about the bouncing bettys. I had those, and used overkill so I could have a STG44 with silencer and also carry a PTRS.

I could sneak around a map, since my STG wouldn't show a red dot, and then set up and snipe a couple guys, using the betty's to block entrances to where I was hiding.

ya but if you dont prestige all your xp points dont count for nothin.i prestige all the time.once i do then i play capture the flag or search and destroy for the big points.before you know it you have all your good guns back.and once you do prestige that gives you another weapon option in the create a class.it doesnt take long to rank up.

Almost made it to 4th prestige on WaW. I never prestiged on COD4. Atleast on WaW you get something for doing it. As for weapons it does suck starting over and not having them all but doesnt matter too much to me because my favorite gun is the MP40.

I borrowed COD:4 from a friend and can't get it to work online. When I hit multiplayer, it says "DOWNLOADING GAME SETTINGS" for 5 minutes, I get sick of it and shut it off.

Sounds like we got the bottom of the barrel on wii compared to the other systems. I'm sitting at 65 of third prestige getting my kills up before I start over. Not really sure what the advantage is. Only use 2 weapons packages consistently so the extra classes go unused. Would like to try the other systems to see if they have server issues as much as wii. Firepower seems to vary greatly from session to session also. I play under vuja de and occassionaly (.Y.)

I have it on PS3 and we have bad server issues as well. Get 8 minutes into a TD mission and lose connection and not get any points- that is about enough to make a guy scream like a little girl.

You still get points when the connections fail. As for COD4 ive ran into that it will fix itself, its not your system.

really? thought it was like it never happened

I am not a big fan of CoD4. When I go back to it after playing WaW, it just seems slow. As far as prestige is concerned, I say don't do it. Sure you get those extra weapon slots, but who uses more than 5 different setups? Personally I use about 3 or 4 at max(I have them set up for the modes I play). Has anyone seen the new trailer for Call Of Duty 6: Modern Warefare 2? Supposed to be coming out 11-10-09.

Pretty sure every point, kill, death, challenge gets counted. After a connection kicks you from a game you should be able to hit select and see the points you got from that game.

As for weapon slots, thats the only reason Im prestiging in WaW. I like having lots of different weapon/perk setups to choose from for different games. Ill probably stop when I have 8 weapon slots though.

    • I have had great luck w/ my 3 yr old Big Horn. I have always said that the controller and hopper looked a lot like the Pit Boss       yeah... I'd say you've got options!
    • Actually I got a new 4 burner Char Grill with side burner this spring for up at the camper and a new cheaper 2 burner with side burner a week ago for at home, so alone with the new Char Grill smoker I got last year I have plenty of wienee cookers thanks.  😘  
    • what type of lenses? glass?
    • About 10 years ago I bought a boat that I had to track down a person that was not who I bought the boat from as they owned it many years before that!!!  But I am sure that I got the owners name from the DMV to then track down and had her sign a form, brought back to DMV, and then put into my name.  I am guessing things have changed as to how to get the name, but sounds silly to have to write a letter to get information that they could use proper discretion to give it to you or not.  Good Luck!
    • Traegers are super over-rated and over-priced for what they are. I would rather buy that big horn up above than a Traeger.    I'm fairly certain that Big Horn is just a Pit Boss. Louisiana smokers makes Pit Boss and a bunch of other stuff that other's put their own name on including PF's Cabela's model. I have a small Pit Boss that I am going to use for camping and I like it just fine. I bought that one from a friend for $50 but I'm sure that's still too much for Leech......
    • ok so story time...the one that got away but saw the fish.  I was ice fishing on Red when the eye fishing was still closed and we went out for an early season excursion about a mile out of Westwind.  It was Saturday evening when I my bobber shot down and the fight was on.  Now we were only in probably 5-7 ft of water if that but I "tired" the fish out where I was able to get it directly under the hole and all we could see was a monster northern head filling up the hole!!  No one would put there hand near that thing, let alone blindly through 2.5 ft of ice, so we just watched it for a minute or two float beneath the hole until I tried to turn it up the hole and the line just snapped when he decided he had had enough!!  That was painful not to touch but seeing it and knowing it was all of 44"+ was better than wondering.   Now to the not seen...Ice fishing Waukanabo by Leech in the deep hole on the north end and I see a mark on the bottom and I hook into it and could not budge it off the bottom.  I sat there for a few minutes with rod bent over trying to lift it with nothing but my line slowly moving away until pop it spit my lure!!!  I think the hole is over 40' deep and with 4lb test mono I guess as much as I applied pressure the hook wasn't in!!    What could have been~ so those are two stories that stick out in my mind and of the 2 the second stings more as I have no clue what it could have been and that runs through my mind but the northern as cool as it would have been to touch measure and what not, to see it and to know how massive it was, makes it "easier" to deal with. 
    • Sorry for the delayed response.    Checked in at the Lac Seul Resort on Wednesday, June 6, and checked out on Monday, June 11. Anticipating our usual needs, I preordered 200 dozen minnows and a pound of leeches from KA Sports & Tackle in Dryden for 10 guys to fish for 4-1/2 days.    This was the first time in 20 years that we actually had bait left over at the end. I gave away about 30 dozen minnows to a neighboring cabin because they didn't have any.    We found the morning bite to be slow for some reason but the evening bite was better. Most activity was found in moving water on the English River. On Friday evening another guy and myself went to Pelican Rapids and from 6:00pm till about 9:30pm we figured we boated over 200 walleyes and a few northnerns. Unfortunately, they were all between 15" - 17" in length and we were looking for the 17" - 18" size for the freezer. That's always our goal for fish we intend to take home.    The following night we went back and although the fish weren't biting quite as fast they were larger. Over the same time frame we figured we only boated about 100 walleyes but the size ranged more in the 17" - 22" size.    Overall we had a few walleyes caught in the 25" - 28" range with the largest of the week at 28.25". Northern pike were active with many caught in the 31" - 34" range. Didn't boat any in the 40" range as we usually do but those lower 30-inchers sure put up a fight.    Also found a few nice smallies and whitefish as usual.    Most fish were found in the 10' - 14' depth range, which was unusual compared to previous years when we caught them in shallow water along the shorelines.    Great weather with steady winds out of the southerly directions, which is what we always hope for but never get and nobody got hurt. Another successful year for us.
    • Seeing the fish is probably my preference since I would probably release it anyway. The only unfortunate thing would be not having a photo of it.
