Speaking of which, back in a few months,I have seen some silver 255 guy, with name exactly like yours, plus some alts of yours. No offense bud, but bronze playerbase mostly complain, because they now the have nowhere to go (but lbr solo golds are also ragequit when they get much weaker players in team, regardless of opponent team), which makes sense, but you are special...
Is this decision good? Yes and no. You can actually learn to play by playing against better players, but yet again, it strictly depends on team you are in. But is there a reason to?
Did they kept online? No.
Jericho basically merged 2 half full districts in one, Citadel lost players because of, lbr, completely trash balance. Yes, people complain about “wizard” golds and yes, I met them too, but it would be less exhausting to meet them with team at least of your own skill level to try. As a result, you never learn anything and just gets completely smashed. Matchmaking simply does bs.
If LO wants to save this game, they should... keep working on new engine, yes, BUT leave just one little dev to make little quality of life changes into current game, at least it would be more fun to keep playing and hope.
