Otherwise I'll stick through it. If a level 3 in GTA player stuck around my co-op mission that was may above his place, I can do the same.
In coop arena, I want completions (any difficulty)....it's the stat I care about. I'm already max legacy/rank and I have more cash than I can spend so when I play with randoms, they're welcome to the majority of the kills just as long as I don't have to revive them every 30 seconds. I won't get started on all my pet peeves about randoms except to say...it's cooperative arena.
Plus, I can complete a game of arena crushing by myself. My friend and I tested this with each other. So I don't want to throw the game away by dying as I revive my teammates.
I've gone from being miserable at comp to rarely finding a real challenge. Bc of friends. Even last night, I played Monastery on crushing with a couple friends. We hadn't played this map together before and had no strategy. Still we beat it, with just such ease too. Took us about 15 minutes too. Soon you'll find that you can't even find a challenge in co-op anymore and you will probably stop playing it. Only people that keep playing co-op forever are the ones who never get good at comp. Or think that co-op stats matter lol.
I didn't say that coop stats are the only ones that matter but completions are the only coop stat I care about. Also, I rarely game with randoms it's just the when I do, all the annoying and inconsiderate things they do remind me how much I value my friends and gaming with them. Having said that, I meet plenty of good, team-oriented players at random in coop as well.
I get much more satisfaction out of beating the AI than stomping someone in a competitive match. For a challenge, my friends and I try different things in coop like trying to complete a match without losing any lives, in the fastest time or using only a certain weapon for the whole match.
What you say about coop players may be true....a good coop player may not be a good comp player but I find that while a good comp player may have the potential to be a good coop player, often they're not (at least in my book) because they don't play cooperatively. I'd much rather play coop with a cooperative, team-oriented player than a highly skilled one that thinks the person with the most kills in the shortest time is the best player.
While in comp, I don't always know what to expect. But I remember there being a time I hated comp for that reason. So my main point is to assure the OP that it can become fun for them as well.
now im level 51 (5th Legacy)
congrats you're getting there .... but, no offence you aren't really leveling up that fast since you started this thread 4 weeks ago and you've only progressed about 30 ranks ... i think you have said somewhere in this thread that you play co-op, maybe try playing competitive and use some negative boosters (multiplies your XP for the match)? ... no worries if you're trying to enjoy or savour your leveling up experience, i'm just offering some advise if you ever want some fast xp
