I think what detrimental is the wrong mindset of some players.
This is not generic CSO kind of shooter game, it relies on more team base and strategy other than solely aiming. You cannot expect your virtual god like sniper mechanical skills would always win you the game…you basically become an expert AI or an aim-bot, but if you fail to cooperate with the team, you might just be worse than a teamplayer who might have not as good aiming as you.
While I don’t agree to all of their balancing decision, I do think they value the team cooperation in mind which I appreciate.
Many of the player leaves because you know, many gamers play video game not for the sake of cooperating, but boosting their ego, bragging about their domination in a game rather than be a team player - that’s why many people left. Because in a game where their “expert AI” level of skill won’t single-handly always win them the game. Therefore, they leave, and I think it’s fair. They should find a game that suit them well.
Whenever I see these kind of "low skill’ “High skill” comment, I got really frustrated because most of you are just too closed mind to see -
Skills are relative, and suit everyone differently, having good aiming doesn’t mean you would perform as well with other heroes.
While these kind of skills certain affect the result of a game to a degree, the lack of strategies and teammplay cooperation is just as detrimental to a very bad gamer.
Of course, there is also the factor of the matchmaking system, trolls, salty given up teammates, etc…
But overall I think what needs to be changed most is this kind of mindset of many players. If you can’t change, won’t change and don’t want to change, maybe you should play another game like many people who have left.
