Won't Team Perks just give one side a ridiculous edge if they are already ahead to the point that the opposing force won't be able to stand a chance against them.
 
Wow, that's stupid.

Apparently these are not accurate.
Robert Bowling has said on twitter that Stopping Power is not in the game.

this was already debunked (team perks and stopping power at least)

I hope there is a "Littlebird" killstreak. It could be the new RC-XD, which is my favorite killstreak.

I hope one of the features are "Well made PC-version"

Immune to killstreaks

So basically, the perk everyone will have.

Increased weapon damage perks are stupid difficult to balance and totally unnecessary. Black Ops was a better game for not having it.  So thats good at least.

Oh man I just realized that the "Littlebird" is possibly the thing that they pack into the Prestige edition of the game.

To be honest, I'm not sure what this even means. Like if someone is in a gunship, you can't get killed by them or they just can't see you? In the description is says you are immune to computer and player controlled killstreaks. Seems a little crazy if you ask me.
 
That point guard one could be cool, seeing as how all I ever get are freaking assist points in that game.

@Mikemcn: The AK74u and Famas are the stopping power of Black Ops.

"Littlebird" was in Homefront.  These all sound made up by someone who's not very creative.

Bowling already said this isn't real, and it's obvious because of that 'Immune to killstreaks' perk, which sounds fucking ridiculous.

All those perks are advantaging the advantaged players and are only ruining the game. Instead making it more pro, they're only making the game more and more casual. And on top of all - an Infinity Ward hegemony.
 
Guess I'll join the majority that is buying BF3. I didn't want to, but I'll be forced to...

May I remind you of a little perk called Cold Blooded...

"Wow," is the only thing I have to say about that.

This is stupid.

Team perks are fucking dumb as shit. Immune to enemy killstreaks? God, i wish someone could put some sense into the Infinity Ward staff. 2 assists count to your KS count? That's stupid. Then it's very easy to get UAV's and airstrikes, incredibly annoying. Gameruining perks.  
 
 
But as i has seen here in this thread, it's apperantely fake, which makes me very glad, because having a perk immune to killstreaks is fucking stupid.
