Whoever negates the fact that experience wise those players are highly outmatched thanks to a sub-par matchmaking system is overlooking a glaringly unfair scenario.
On a related topic, the balancing also is giving poor players and teams all the parts and weapons still. I felt like pity parts were solved, but now it's more unbalanced and ridiculous than ever. My brother and I play together. Get two brand new players. Get a lead. The other team comes right back to us with 7 molotovs. Happened TWICE tonight alone. Two different games and groups. We are running crafter 3 and explosion 2 to counter it, but are only managing 1 Molotov combined? And they get melee weapons too. It's no longer about guns and strategy. It's who sucks the most. Get them some help. See what happens. I don't think naughty dog thought this out. These suck **bleep** are only playing this until November, don't cater to their sucking, they'll be on Call of Duty soon and I'll be done with it too because its just not a fun experience anymore. Why have to struggle and be frustrated while playing TERRIBLE and STUPID people?
Sad to say I'm trading for GTA if its not better by Tuesday.
Levels on this game are determined by EXPERIENCE. Considering that is the case, it is still unfair towards the new guys, even if they are above in terms of talent. Do I have to explain my point any further? Lol.
The ultimate fix for this problem would be if ND would've made an algorithm to gauge a player's actual skill and dictate how teams would match, but considering we don't have that, we have to deal with a system that has no regards for equality.
Sadly just from this forum, I've come to learn that ND's other games all shared the same problems and annoyances that never got fixed. What a terrible company. Take the $60 I paid and shove it up ur **bleep**. Spawns, matchmaking, glitches, hacks, ALL sorts of inconsistencies attributed to lag (sure every MP has lag, but ur games have a special kind of annoying lag ND). I won't even begin to name the long distinguished list of lag related issues I've experienced first hand and read about.
This game is like a big terd I would drop, proud of and admire for a couple seconds, then flush it down the toilet, after all at the end of the day it's just a piece of crap.
I'm actually not that bad and end up first in my team most of the time. But I still end up loosing a lot of times.
I've also defeated teams with player >100 several times, but in the general picture it is still unbalanced.
The problem here isn't "experienced player being better", it's the fact that it's really frequent to get paired up with people LV 0-10 vs a whole enemy team of people beyond 80. Almost every other multiplayer game I have with some sort of level system does a good job of pairing up experienced player vs experienced players and new players vs new players. But this game has a tendence of pairing up a whole team of experienced players vs a whole team of new players, and that sucks.
