[Locked] Everyone is terrible at this game

OP PoisondBacon

Why is it that in socials literally 80 percent of the population is terrible players. It's like none of you have ever played video games before, am I the only one that feels this way?

Social is supposed to be a casual place where you can have fun in a variety of gametypes. If the "terrible players" bother you so much, I would suggest sticking to the competitive playlists where you are less likely to encounter them. Or form a team of your own. Also, bear in mind that just because someone plays terribly in one or two matches doesn't mean that they are terrible overall.

I know it's a casual place, but people are lost mentally. So many people. also, bear in mind this game is dead and you can't find competitive games. Bear in mind i don't need your suggestions.

You can definitely find competitive games in MCC, plus if you're going to complain about something expect suggestions on how to improve your experience. Another thing to add is MCC isn't dead it's just most people prefer social which is where you can be a dead brain and do stupid stuff or custom games.

“I don’t need your suggestions” - says the guy literally looking for feedback in the game’s forum lol

Okay, so why ask for peoples opinions on a Forum which are used for Feedback if you’re just gonna ignore their suggestions
I think I can already see where this thread is going, so I think a mod should lock it before things get REAL toxic.
Not everyone plays games for the same reason. Not everyone is hyper-competitive. Yes the objective is to win the match, but many play just for fun, to socialise with friends or to relax. You can lose a game and still have fun. And people have other things going on in their lives. They might only be able to play for a couple of hours a week.

If you want a more competitive experience, the impetus is on you and others have offered solutions. What else can we do? Ban everyone below a certain skill level from social playlists? Good luck finding any matches then.
I feel your sentiment, believe me. Matchmaking unfairly biases teams against experienced players. I hardly play social anymore because I’m tired of being paired with people who don’t understand the basics of the game. Playing equivalent modes in the 360 versions yields a better experience since you are not penalized for being a good player.

But, I will also suggest not being rude toward the people on this forum. I’ve done my share of venting, but only toward the game itself. They are also fans of the game with their own criticisms of things they don’t like. Perhaps they don’t agree with you, but it’s more beneficial to try and see if their suggestions work and to show them why you believe your criticism is valid.
Nothing of value is coming from this
