Yet you scream and whinge when no one grabs it when you're trying to get PRO. And when I say you, I mean you and other people who have constantly complained about this so called predicament.
Unless you have a microphone to tell them not to grab it, you can't entirely blame them.
@rhockaby- whil i wholeheartedly agree with your first statement, were you licking a window or eating glue while typing the last part? that is one of the dumbest things i have ever heard. anyone who steals a teammate's killstreak unless told otherwise is a jackass. they didnt earn it. its not theirs. just for an example, if i walked into your house and swiped your tv, you wouldn't ENTIRELY blame if you didn't say it was pk?

Agreed! What drives me mad is that... Once they start taking it, most of the time it won't let me take it.... Drives me nuts, i actually give loads of CP away as well.
Lol.. this one is sort of funny, When ever I'm trying to get Pro, I can hardly ever get people to take the package,I don't use a mic. I've left centry guns,napome, ect.. the guys just wont take it, a lot of the time, i end up getting killed by the other team or the package goes to the other team. I dont take any of me teams packages unless I hear him say it. If the guy gets killed, i will take it. I got crap for that once, the guy got killed, Killed the guys that killed him, and he gave me ****, saying I should have sat there defending it till he got back?...lmao.. My advice to you, is find a place that is not where your team is spawning. Just be ready, the other team is there..haha
When I get care packages I never throw them out if my team sucks. I have finished many a game with care packages in hand.
If I do get a bad package and cannot change it (or change it to something terrible) I leave it, and kill the enemies who try and take it.
It is funny one game I threw everything out to get HL Pro, and nobody took anything.

On every map I play I have go-to locations for tossing my care package smoke grenades. I use those locations 90% of the time because they are away from the enemies and I can defend my position should an enemy show up. What I've found, though, is that the spawn will often trigger right at the same location I am at as I toss my package. It's the fargging weenies that respawn, see a package drop in front of them, and then try to steal it that really chap my a$$! I had a guy steal my package on Nuketown as I was trying to switch it. I yelled on the mic for him to GTFO, but he still took it. I proceeded to pin him into a corner him over by the logpile, and even though we both got killed, it provided a small amount of satisfaction. I laid into him the rest of the match. I recall he was relatively low rank/prestige, so perhaps he was learning the ropes, but with me yelling at him, I tend to believe he was some little punk that sucks so bad the only way he can get care packages is to steal them from his own team.

Glad you got SOMETHING out of that situation.
It's a shame you had to sink lower then he to get it.
I had one guy pin me in a corner to let his friend get the CP I earned.
Dirty pool for sure.
If it bothers you that much then do not equip it as a kill streak.
It sucks that this would have to be the case.
What about a personal CP that nobody could take as an option for a higher kill streak?
I had a pair of a$$holes steal a crate on Kowloon a little while ago. I called in a CP and backed into a corner to protect it and wait. Couple of guys respawn in front of me and see the blue smoke, one guy traps me in the corner while his buddy steals my crate.
Man I was NOT happy. I was impressed with the team work especially without mics but man if they used those skills against the other team instead of me we probably could have won the game
