I've reached level 10 and am now locked out of the casual deathmatch mode and am now forced to enter matches against 'hardcore' players. I say 'hardcore' because they like to assume that because they have a higher K/D ratio than me that it really means something other than little bits of digital statistics. I was having a ton of fun in the casual games, had a 1/1 K/D ratio which means I wasn't a top player but I was holding my own, but I was having fun. Now if I actually would like to play online I'm forced into lobbies and games with players who really take the game seriously and if you don't perform to their level of expectation I get nasty or derogatory messages mid match. I'm not good and I know it, but I have fun. I was never good at COD (lifetime .8 K/D ratio) but never once did I get hassled for it, yet for some reason a lot of these kids who've barely reached the age that they've stopped suckling at their mums feel a need to act like their 'mad skillz' will get them far in life. People wonder why so many players play without mics, that's the reason I do (that and idiots who think they're cool by blasting music in the background or screeching into open mics.) IMO they should just create a casual lobby with no limits so everyone can get what they want, I'll keep my poor skills out of your lobbies and everyone will be happy. BTW my typical loadout is the retro lancer and the gnasher shotty and yes I love playing with the 'overpowered' weapon drops.
