Doesn't do it for me personally, but to some kids, these pro-gamers are their heroes.
too bad COD completely destroyed the pro scene after COD4. I used to play on a pretty professional level for COD2 to 4 and the ability to mod the maps for competitive play was lost after COD4 aka no more promods. There isn't a single person i know from the professional COD4 community that moved on to the other COD series.
The game quite frankly is catered now for console 12 yr olds, whom will blindly buy every game that COD put out because they are 12 yr olds... Not to mention the game is super easy these days, all these whos got a better KD or 360 no scope is
