Yeah, Ghost itself is a legit perk like you said, but what bothers me is that there's no counter to it or disadvantage when using it now. In CoD4 and MW2, you could use UAV Jammer/Cold-Blooded, but you had to sacrifice Stopping Power (or Juggernaut in CoD4's case).
You're right West. If my memory's any good, I think that the Blackbird can spot people with Ghost on, right? Maybe if the amount of kills in a row to get it was a little lower, it would give an effective way to counter the Ghost perk.
I'd still pick Hardline or Lightweight over Ghost, most of the time.
Now in Black Ops, the main reward of the game, just like MW2, is getting high killstreak rewards to dominate the enemy. Now with Ghost Pro, people can hide from all killstreaks except the Attack Dogs (but they're easy to avoid and kill anyway), so that straight away is my main problem with Ghost.
I thought the Pro Perk was preventing the dogs from seing you. Anyway !! I often hear people complainning about campers... but camping is not the most effective way to get killstreaks, especially because if people pay a little attention to the killcams, they will easily know where to look the next time around.
The other problem I have with Ghost is that it pretty much dominates the Tier 1 slot, the only competition it has is Flak Jacket (which for the record I think is fine, doesn't need tweaking at all).
Like I said, Hardline Pro is terrific with the care package. I rarely use Ghost, and my k/d is still 2.21
I love to use Lightweight also, it's great when used with SMGs and Shotguns.
Lightweight - Only really appeals to players who like to rush, and even then I only see people rushing in Search and Destroy. Probably the most useless perk in this tier.
I barely ever play S&D and I use it on every single SMG weapon class. To chase people down, run to cover, strafe, knife people, or get to obvectives faster... it's an amazing perk.
Scavenger - Dual Mags. 'Nuff said.
Pretty useless. If you suck at this game, you will get killed before you run out of ammo. And if you don't suck, you will be able to pick up any weapon on the ground and keep killing people. Either way, you don't need Scavenger.
Hardline - Very good for helping you get higher killstreaks, but the Pro benefit is all but useless since it got nerfed, and what's the point of getting your Gunships and Chopper Gunners if some guy with Ghost and his Strela-3 secondary can shoot you down before you enter the map?
I'll post a pic of my kills with the Chopper Gunner :) You'll see how useful it is :)

Second chance is quite easy in my opinion, as long as you get the headshot one. Ghost Pros 30 killstreaks destroyed are a bit of a pain, considering you dont get stierelas (BOs stinger missiles) until lv30.
Haha! Pretty much why it's a pain in the ass !!! Even though I'm pretty good, I can't understand how you are supposed to shoot a guy straight in the head while he's emptying is AUG on your ass!

In any call of duty game, where the only 'skill' to shooting any weapon constitutes your hit accuracy, your reflex time, and your ability to control the firearm, guns which are 'generally more powerful then any other gun', should not exist, at all. Sure you can have weapons with higher damage statistics, but these kind of things REALLY need to be compensated for. Otherwise you just end up in games full of people using the same weapons, because the one person using weapon X will just wreak havoc during the time period.
I'd take BO over MW2... ANY-FUCKING-DAY !!!
No Stopping Power !!!
No UMP45 !!!
No Scar-H !!!
At least, the most powerful guns cannot be boosted by shit perks like SP, anymore !!!
