That perhaps the game isn't trash, it may simply be that I'm not as good as I thought I was. Btw, I don't think I'm anything special.
Yes, it does have its flaws, but at the end of the day the same people are at the top of the leaderboards. I think that SDS gave us what we asked for in one particular aspect, and that is in skill differentiation.
The good players still win more than they lose, but those who aren't as skilled as they thought they were are struggling, myself included.
Do I think some things need to tuned? Why, yes, but at the core of it is the fact that SDS has made the skill gap a wider divide between those who can and those who can't.
I know I'll get roasted for this particular take and that is fine. I'm not enjoying the game at the moment because I don't think I'm skilled enough to play well enough right now.
I think it may be time for some people, like myself, to have a good look at their skill level and stop blaming everything on the core gameplay. Weird fielding glitches aside, the game has solid potential.
