Maybe that's where I'm going wrong then
As an old RA3 player, CA is the closest game mode to that which is why I enjoy it. These days, I don't have the time or ambition to become one of the elite again. It's just a bit disheartening when (according to 'skill matching') I've earned the right to be there and yet get flamed and kicked as soon as I join.
If as people have suggested, lower T4 players unbalance the game so much and negatively affect 'leet' players stats (to the point they become almost suicidal), maybe the tier system could use a little review?
Also... drop me an friend request if you fancy a nice game of QL
