In rivals, 4 out of 5 matches end up in a quit, either by me or by the opponent. That speaks volumes about the state of the game, at least in lower divisions.
In division 7/8 i'm constantly up against much higher division players, even now. You can tell by the way they play, even with below average teams, I even messaged a few and they were div 4/3 players. Is it gonna be a whole year of that?
Last year I had a poor team but I was at least matching up against players of my skill level and enjoyed competing and going up slowly. This year even with a much better team, I don't find myself enjoying the games coz of this.
