I've become extremely disheartened with matchmaking games these days. Every time I try to play, I always lose horribly. Now before all the comments come in saying I suck, I will admit, I'm not the best. I know that. My problem is that too much anymore, people have found ways to ruin the experience for me. Losing isn't the problem. It's part of the game. But between laggers and cheaters, team killers and quitters, I can't bring myself to enjoy the games I used to.
With the rise of e-sports, there is certainly a need for competitiveness in matchmaking. There's a limit though, and it's one I feel is crossed way too often. Not everyone can be the next big thing in gaming, and frankly I'm tired of everyone trying to be. I've practically given up matchmaking as a result. Now of course, there's nothing forcing me to play matchmaking, but shouldn't I be able to fully enjoy a game that I paid for? Why should I buy a game only to experience half of it? I'm sure everybody at some point has gone through this. Is the online gaming community too extreme? Let us know what you think after the jump!
