i bet this topic wud be closed soon by one of those old school mods cuz in the end they wont have any more arguments to come up with.
correct me if im wrong but its been said a lot of times on this topic. it requires more skill nowdays than back in ke. why? because first, people now know how to combo thx to the guides and videos that the oldschool ppl made so you gotta be happy for that but that doesnt mean people cant be better than yall. 2nd, its easier to get gear therefore it is more competitive. 3rd more people play this game than a few years ago and theres more gangbang in cz. surviving among 2172891 opponents is a skill believe it or not.
