Inconsistent feel in matchmaking.
I understand that we all have good and bad days. But I can go 20 plus kills hitting perfect shots and feeling really good about overall game play, to not being able to finish off a kill and ending up with horrific k/d spreads the next day or even next match.
The inconsistency of melees and Spartan charges. How can I spartan charge some one from behind then shoot and they don’t die? They immediately turn around and melee me and I die with one hit. It makes me not go in for melees now. The lunge distance feels inconsistent to me also.
Unloading a full clip of the magnum on someone. Seeing there shields go down and still registering shots, but not killing them. And then dying with what feels like a 3 register shot.
Damage done by grenades feels Inconsistent to me.
I love the competitiveness and have no problem playing against people that are genuinely more skilled than myself. I enjoy the challenge. But when you've done everything to get the kill and then come off second best, it’s frustrating.
I don’t know if this is a function of latency. But it means that I tend to not play ranked until I’m confident I’m having a good day and the shots/melees seem to be registering correctly, otherwise I’ll just free fall through the ranks. I just end up grinding through arena slayer playing the same boring truth, colosseum and plaza cycle, maybe playing okay in some matches, but most of the time just sweating to go slightly positive k/d.
Okay, rant over haha just had an absolute terrible evening of play, when I felt like overall, in the past few weeks of picking the game up again, I was starting to become consistent and accurate with the magnum. But couldn’t hit a barn door tonight.
