This weekend I counted my home games (that people didnt quit out of) which was 6 out of 29 played. So therefore I had 23 away games this WL. Well I finished on 17-12 and lost 4 of the 6 I played at home. Again that means I lost 8 out of 23 away games this weekend.
What I've found is the people who are willing to play you at home dont give a **** because in their mind they are clearly confident players and for me this weekend I watched it carefully and they generally were better than me when they didnt quit out.
I welcome away games, absolute load of crap this rumour just makes it even more frustrating finding a game especially when you have a decent connection.
